On a previous thread, a poster attacked me for being in favor of the dynamic equivalence (DE) theory of translation. This was in spite of me not ever saying that, and in fact having written against it here on the BB. So I thought that it must be time for me to rail against it again, so that the johnnie-come-latelies get the message--I strongly oppose it!!!

TULIP - Calvinism Explained in Five Simple Points
How many points of C do you agree?
Peace brothers. 5 point Classical Arminian Baptist here.
