    Does anyone know where I can find Arminian commentaries on Romans? Are there any online? Did Arminius write commentaries?

    I know most would say don't waste your time reading that stuff...well normally I wouldn't but since a friend of mine is going to possibly lead a study on Romans for the ladies at my church (reformed, independent) I thought it would be good not only to teach these women what reformed theology is - but also what it is not.

    In other words, they may hear and learn about election and agree that Scripture teaches these things but they may be talking with a southern baptist friend and agree with their free will arguments as well (inconsistently of course).

    If you have e-sword, you can download John Wesley's commentary. That might be along the lines of what you're looking for. I think there's also another one (which I haven't downloaded) up there of one of somebody who studied under him - can't remember the name offhand.

    If you don't have e-sword, you can download it for free at www.e-sword.net.

    I've read posts by arminians that always quote Adam Clarke...

    Ah ha. That's the name of the other guy whose name I couldn't remember.

    I couldn't remember either. I had to do some searching.

    Here's the forum where I see him quoted. If you want to know how arminians (wrongly) interpret scripture just look here.

    Adam Clarke...man, several years ago I intended to read through his commentaries but I didn't get much past Genesis 3 where somehow he came to the conclusion that the serpent in the garden couldn't possibly have been a serpent but must have been...

    an orangutan!!!

    :think:

    Well, I'm not the greatest exegete but I just couldn't figure how that interpretation would square with Rev. 12:9 "So the great chimpanzee was cast out, that monkee of old, called the Devil and Satan..."

    :D

    Adrian Rogers' work is classic!

    Go to www.lwf.org (Love Worth Finding - you know, since EVERYBODY is seeking) and go to Bible Studies to look for "Foundations of the Faith." It is a three volume and his work on Romans 9 is stupefying. They really push the cassettes and CDs but you can get the printed study guides for $8 each ($24 for all three volumes).

    I read part of the chapter nine "exegesis" and it is right out of one of his sermons that James White disected on Dividing Line.

    Hence Spurgeon's less-than-affectionate description of Clark: "An Arminian twister of the Word"
