This Week in Calvinism - August 17, 2007

  • Why is Calvinism resurging in the U.S.? Jack Brooks believes it has a lot to do with Americans losing their faith in free will.

  • A side-by-side comparison of Arminianism and Calvinism.

  • Mark Dever has completed his 10-part series answering the question "Where'd all these Calvinists come from?"

  • Cathi-Lyn notes that those who seek to exercise dominion over every sphere of life "seem to have forgotten that human nature -- and, arguably, the devil himself, if you take a Christian worldview -- have not left the building." There are other problems associated with this theocratic/theonomic mindset, and I hope to expand on those in a future post. Rest assured, Cathi-Lyn, not all Calvinists think that way!

  • This blog presents a rock-solid argument against the doctrine of particular atonement by quoting a writer who thinks it was more than just an "arbitrary act" and justifies his reasoning with phrases like "what I feel is..." Remember: straw man arguments and feelings always trump scripture.

  • Heidi rejects "the hybrid 'Armin-alvin' who claims that they chose Jesus under their own power, but have the nerve to say they are eternally secure in that."

  • Dear Don: "Calvinism Is the Gospel."

  • And don't forget the big Paedo vs. Credo baptism debate this Sunday night between Paul Manata and Gene Cook Jr. You can listen to the official debate promo here.
