A New Blog, A Debate, Books, and A Book

Update

Some time ago, I was invited to write for Apologist Michael Burgos’ Grassroots Apologetics blog. But I was so busy with preparing for the birth of my second son, writing for the CARM blog (which is temporarily on hiatus until further notice from the admin there), and working a 40 hour work week that I wasn’t able to write for the blog as much as I would have liked.

Since my schedule has been freed up somewhat, however, I’ve been able to write and study much more. I’ve posted things over at Grassroots Apologetics, and am busily whittling away the hours in quite a few books. AND I have my first  public moderated debate, so I’ve been very busy preparing for my interaction with my opponent.

Also I’ve put together a little book containing some articles from this blog, as well other blogs and my own personal stash on the Doctrine of the Trinity in the Old Testament.

Here’s the breakdown of what I’ve been up to:

Grassroots Apologetics

The Logical Necessity of the Deity of Christ Jesus (Pt.1)

The Logical Necessity of the Deity of Christ Jesus (Pt.2)

The Moral Superiority of “Overriding” “Freewill”

Other Articles

Reading List

The Doctrine of Endless Punishment – W.G.T. Shedd

The Institutes of the Christian Religion – John Calvin

God-Breathed: The Divine Inspiration of the Bible – Louis Gaussen

Holiness – J.C. Ryle

The City of God – St. Augustine

Debate

The debate will be with Chris Date, host of the Theopologetics podcast. We will be debating the nature of Hell, viz. “Is the punishment of hell the eternal torment of the damned, or their eternal extinction?” I will be arguing that Hell is the eternal torment of the damned (i.e. the traditional position).

You can get more details at his blog.

My Book

It’s really nothing special, just some reflections on the Old Testament’s germinal doctrine of the Trinity and the correlations it has to the New Testament’s full teaching on the matter.

It is title The Doctrine of the Trinity in the Old Testament. You can purchase it through Lulu.com. Here is the link:

Until next week,

Soli. Deo. Gloria.

    Hey, Hiram. I’m looking forward to our debate! Thanks for agreeing to it! One clarification, however, as you (unintentionally, I believe) mischaracterized the position I’ll be arguing. I don’t believe the punishment is temporary, nor will I be arguing that they “cease to exist.” You’re welcome to ask for clarification, and to choose whether or not to update the text of this post. I just wanted to give you a head’s up. ‘Till then!

    I recommend–and again, it’s of course up to you–something like this:

    “Is the punishment of hell the eternal torment of the damned, or their eternal extinction?”

    The point is, at the heart of our debate will be the nature of the punishment, not its duration; we both agree it will be eternal.
