As many of you know, I have a deep love for the early Church. My theological passions circle around the related doctrines of Triadology and Christology, and I have recently become disillusioned with the insufficiency of the modern Reformed bodies in these areas.
I have become convinced by various Eastern Orthodox arguments that Reformed Christology is inherently Nestorian, Arian, Eutychian, and Docetic. Beyond that, I find that Reformed Triadology is both Sabellian and Tritheistic. I have also become convinced that despite the fact that Reformed theology embraces the idea that the Covenant made with Adam prior to the Fall was a voluntary condescension by God, and that apart from this voluntary condescension that Adam could not have obtained immutable permanence… because the word grace is not used in the formulation that it is deeply Pelagian. I have also come to understand that Reformed theology is both a square, as well as a circle. Furthermore, the prominence of married bachelors within Reformed theology is deeply concerning.
Because of these things, effective immediately, I will no longer be the Reformed Arsenal… but instead will be the Eastern Orthodox Arsenal. Specifically. I know it doesn’t have quite the same ring as the Reformed Arsenal… but I must be true to myself.
I would like to begin my time as an Eastern Orthodox Christian by encouraging you all to celebrate my favorite of all holidays.
Happy April Fool’s Day!
P.S. Just in case you didn’t get it… I’m still as Reformed as ever. I’m not going anywhere.
