Readers of ARPTalk:
The following corrections are to be applied to my last post.
- I want to thank the five or six of you who have e-mailed or called me regarding Dr. Steve Lowe’s credentials. Dr. Lowe is not a minister in the United Methodist Church; rather, he is a layman. Dr. Lowe is a member of a conservative congregation and identifies himself as a Whitefield Methodist. That means that he is a Calvinist in his understanding of salvation.
- I also forgot that Dr. Loyd Melton was Interim Dean and Vice President of ETS between Dr. Randy Ruble and Dr. RJ Gore. Dr. Melton is a Baptist and senior professor at ETS. He is also a superb teacher. I know that from sitting in his classroom. I wish him the best as he continues to recover from successful cancer surgery. Having a Baptist as the Interim Dean and Vice President is not as shocking to the ecclesiastical system of a Presbyterian as having a Methodist as the Interim Executive Vice President – even a Whitefield Methodist.
- Former Erskine President Dr. Sanyarn Bell did not spell his first name “Stanyarn.”
