This Week in Calvinism - April 21, 2017

  • "Will you see [God] as autocratic, as someone who chooses to do whatever he chooses to do and accomplishes whatever he has chosen to accomplish in respect to salvation?" asks Block Island Christian Fellowship. "Or will you see him as one who is not willing that any should perish, but allows each person to decide in their own free will to repent and believe in his Son for salvation?"

  • Tim Challies sets someone straight on Calvinism.

  • Someone who isn't a Calvinist, but wants to be.

  • Does God tell us who to marry?

  • It's not the doctrine of justification by faith alone that saves—it's Christ who saves.
    

This Week in Calvinism - April 14, 2017

  • Why we call the worst Friday "Good."

  • "Both Arminianism and Calvinism are religious beliefs," writes Ted Jones, "which falsely assert that Jesus' murder by crucifixion has resolved all the outstanding issues mankind has with sin." In other words, Jesus lied? It isn't finished?

  • We Calvinists believe Christ died for the elect. Benjamin Corey, however, tells us what the Bible actually says. Yes, it's the same "all means all" argument we've heard a thousand times over.

  • Greg Forster on Calvinism and joy.

  • According to the Last Days Watchman blog, Hank Hanegraaf left Calvinism behind when he joined the Eastern Orthodox Church. Now, I haven't listened to the Bible Answer Man in a very long time, but most Calvinists I know would have considered Hanegraaff an Arminian.

  • G. Shane Morris discusses holidays and Calvinist curmudgeons.
    

This Week in Calvinism - April 7, 2017

  • Roger Olson pleads, "Would someone please rein in some of the 'young Calvinists'?"

  • The Calvinist doctrine of limited atonement destroyed! Yes, this may be "the most distasteful doctrine" even for us, but since we "are forced to defend an arbitrary and unknowable god," it isn't surprising that we defend this, too.

  • Life is fragile, but God is faithful.

  • Sometimes, we Calvinists miss the key to happiness.

  • Fr. Dwight Longenecker thinks total depravity is heresy. "The truly Catholic view," he writes, "is that we are created in God's image and therefore we are good."

  • D. G. Hart responds.

  • "Cage stage"? "Concerned"? "Cool"? "Conceited"? Which kind of Calvinist are you?

  • "The Calvinist doesn't seem to be able to comprehend," writes Dave Armstrong, "that God and a person can do the same thing, and both take credit (God, of course, far more)."

  • Tim Keller failed Princeton Seminary's political litmus test for receiving the Kuyper Prize, but he was still allowed to give his lecture at the beginning of the Kuyper Center's annual conference.

  • John Samson tackles five big myths about Calvinism.

  • Pope Francis has canonized Brazilian Catholics who were martyred by Calvinists in 1645. Maybe this is the kind of thing Arminians are referring to when they say Calvinism ruins missions.

  • Hmmm. According to a psychological study, Calvinists seem to be more traditional in their views than Arminians when it comes to issues of gender. Go figure.

  • Another study concludes that there is a correlation between believing in penal substitution and complementarianism and being less concerned about suffering in the world. Those cold-hearted Calvinists!

  • The Calvinist doctrine of unconditional election destroyed! After all, "all" means all, right?

  • Steve Hays addresses points made by Greg Boyd regarding Calvinism.

  • Suffering opens a door for the gospel.

  • The irony of Princeton's Kuyper Prize controversy.
