Acts 13:48 Revisited
As a Calvinist [insert laugh-track here], one of the prooftexts I have come to rely upon to support my position has been Acts 13:48: “Now when the Gentiles heard, they rejoiced and glorified the word of the Lord, and such as were appointed to eternal life believed.” I no longer think this verse really supports a distinctively Calvinistic soteriology, and now believe that it can fit most any orthodox soteriology (Calvinist, Arminian, or Roman Catholic).
What a surprise! Another Reformed prooftext bites the dust as Paul [insert heresy of choice] Owen thinks it can fit most any “orthodox” soteriology.
This, keep in mind, is a man who believes that Muslims worship the true God.
