Sad News

Well, I discovered today that the author of the Promise Theology link site http://thepromise.typepad.com has become a Reformed Baptist and abandoned Epangelicalism. I’m bummed to lose such a passionate proponent, but also bummed that since he has stopped paying for this typepad page it means that the page could be taken down at any time.

So, I’ve asked for his permission to re-create the resource page, and I hope to begin maintaining the premier single resource for Promise Theology research. I’ll keep you posted.

*Update*

Check out http://promisetheology.wordpress.com 

It’s a work in progress, but it’s coming along nicely.

  1. I’m curious where you got the news from? Has he said anything why he no longer believes in Promise Theology? Did he state why the change? What was he before? Very interesting.

  2. Junior and I have been in touch for a couple years. I provided him with several of the Kaiser articles back in 2005, I believe.

    I contacted him recently about some additional articles and Kaiser’s new book. Lo and behold, he couldn’t find a Promise Theology church, read Graeme Goldsworthy and became a Reformed Baptist.

  3. I’m just curious why Reformed Baptist and not something else? I realize that not everyone decides on a “flavor” based on the same questions. Not everyone shares the same criteria. I am more interested in how the educated individual chooses, not so much the “I hear voices and it/He said go there” crowd.

  4. I’m not sure, Jamie. We weren’t friends on a personal level, and I didn’t pursue the issue. I can say that Junior seems a very rationally-motivated rather than feeling-motivated individual.

    I think I explained in my post why I consider it sad. Someone who passionately believed the same things I do, has changed his mind to something that I don’t think makes as much sense.

  5. You said: “I think I explained in my post why I consider it sad. Someone who passionately believed the same things I do, has changed his mind to something that I don’t think makes as much sense.”

    Now that’s something I can understand. 😀
