I found your site while while doing research for my theological study.
Paul is the one who coined the phrase “vessels of wrath” in his epistle to the Romans. Amongst protestant churches the most heated divide is the Calvinist v. Armenian debate of predestination v. free- will. The predestination camp cites this reference more than any other. In practical terms, this verse is the cornerstone of the predestination argument.
Paul’s theology is unique, in that it almost never references hell. I am writing a series that deals with the few instances of Paul using condemnation language, which are all interconnected and reveal the theology of Paul.
