This upcoming Saturday I will be participating in a formal debate with Ben Rochester. I will be arguing that it is reasonable to think that the word of God promises in Romans 11 that there will be a future conversion of ethnic Israel, whereas Rochester will be arguing that it is not reasonable to think that the word of God promises that there will be a future conversion of ethnic Israel. If anybody would want to come then that would be great. I would greatly appreciate your support. But if you are not able to make it I will provide a free mp3 audio recording of the debate on this blog.
Here are the details about the debate:
What is Hoagies & Stogies?
Hoagies & Stogies is a men’s fellowship for reformed, theological debate; it was created by one of my elders before he was an elder. When he was ordained, he got too busy, and he gave the reins of the ministry to me. The men gather for a simple meal of hoagies, with home-brewed beer, or soft drinks. After a while, we all refill our glasses, and those who are so inclined light up their best stogies and kick back and enjoy a theological debate. But if you are not a smoker (like me), or not a drinker (or not both!), you are still welcome. (You can consider it your mission to ensure that Christian liberty is exercised with due charity!)
What/when/where is the next Hoagies & Stogies?
