Four liters of Dr. Pepper down.
Already blew the budget on books.
Got new laptop.
Met with a person who takes pictures of dead frogs (interesting) of a Saturday morning. Bright the morning, clear the skies, snow glittering down from the wind rushing in the branches. Ended among the old books heaped and stacked.
Sat through a long, disjointed monologue where the preacher had the effrontery to say he’s neither a Calvinist nor an Arminian. Hard to believe such people are real, but I haven’t been in a fundamentalist church for years, thank God. What dishonesty in the same building where I was first taught theology! Do their peers compell them to say such things? Is there a crowd of them for whom saying that is fitting in? Surely the second coming is at hand.
If you say what this chap did, one of two things, it seems to me, is true of you: 1, you are ignorant of theology; or 2, you are being dishonest. Is this what comes of Calvinism being popular? If you want to be cool, you pretend you’re not really Arminian, however limited the options? The unspoken assumption seems to be they return to the simplicity of Scripture refusing all the accretions superadded by the Reformation and other such theologically fanatical knuckleheads.
Otherwise enjoying the winter. Had a bath!
