THE EVANGELICAL REVIEW OF THEOLOGY & POLITICS
VOL. 2, 2014

ARTICLES

Article
John J. Johnson, ‘A Critique of American Evangelicals’ Abstinence Position on Alcohol, from Pre-Prohibition to Today.’

KEY WORDS
||  Alcohol ||  Bible ||  Prohibition ||  Christianity ||  Moderation ||  Evangelical ||

ABSTRACT
This article seeks to show that the anti-alcohol sentiment among many North American evangelical Christians is misguided, for several reasons. One, the Bible condemns only the abuse of alcohol, not its use in moderation. Two, evangelical prohibitionists claim that wine in biblical times was watered down and therefore not intoxicating. But this is incorrect, as the wine’s alcohol content would have been equivalent to modern "light" beer, and therefore still capable of producing intoxication. Three, the anti-alcohol position was almost unknown during the first 1800 years of the Church, so its emergence in the United States in the 19th century is biblically and theologically suspect. And four, evangelical hysteria over alcohol was partly responsible for the Volstead Act, which outlawed alcohol in the United States from 1920 to 1933, is now generally viewed as a political and moral failure.

Article
Sylvie Avakian, ‘Open Theism and Beyond. A Challenge to Evangelicalism.’

KEY WORDS
||  Open Theism ||  Evangelicalism ||  Christian Theology ||  Free Will vs. Predestination ||
||
 Orthodox Theology ||  Divine Love ||

ABSTRACT
On the topic of Open Theism, which is a theological stand within Evangelicalism, this article presents first its major themes, in contrast to the position of Classical Theism, some indications of the present discussions on the topic will follow. Then, some critical remarks and finally concluding statements toward a possible movement from a conservative and classical position to a more open and free theological stand within Evangelicalism, will conclude the article.

The article argues mainly that since Evangelicalism, throughout history and by the nature of its reality, has not insisted on the metaphysical and speculative dimension in theology and has not been the victim of institutionalized systems; Evangelicalism remains a potential field for reception of the open views on God and the Christian faith. In this sense Open Theism persists as a challenge within Evangelicalism, and for it, in order that it might move beyond all constrainment and limitation.
