Want to be an Evangelical Arminian? Roger Olson will Help: Homebrewed Christianity 96

I am pumped to share my conversation with Roger Olson.  This card carrying ‘evangelical Arminian’ joins the podcast to explain common misunderstandings around Arminian theology, the ethical problems of being a Calvinist, the nature and future of evangelicalism, Open theism, the Rob Bell controversy, and the impact of the homosexuality debate in American evangelicalism.  It was really a blast to get to talk with Roger and will be looking forward to next time (because I am sure the Deacons will want more!).

Olson is a professor of theology at Truett Theological Seminary of Baylor University, he blogs, and publishes a bunch of books….including ones for a general audience.

I got this as a comment a few days ago on my own blog and it in fact forced me stop and take it into account. What’s something new you recently learned about your self?

I laughed for about a minute straight when Roger said, "A lot of younger people don't care about labels very much, but I think they're going to run into the reality principle eventually where labeling themselves someway is going to have to happen". The fact that he says, "the reality principle" just cracked me up. Great interview! Thanks.

Great. Loved it. Best yet. When I read "reformed and always reforming," I said, "oh, that's what I am. A post-conservative. Huh?" I loved his explanation of NT Wright calling and saying, "you categorized me."

Tripp great interview. However, I feel like you misspoke when you said there aren't any pro-homoerotic scriptures. I'd really recommend reading Ted Jennings' three books on homosexuality in the Bible (Jacob's Wound, the Man Jesus Loved, and Plato or Paul?).
