This Week in Calvinism - October 5, 2007

  • The anti-Calvinist origin of the King James Bible.

  • Andrew Lindsey responds to Dave Hunt's book, What Love Is This?

  • Responses to the Amazing Grace DVD project have been overwhelmingly positive.

  • Marc thinks that 1 Timothy 4:9-10 refutes the doctrine of limited (or particular) atonement. He believes the Arminian teaching of unlimited atonement is "a more radiant and tenable position, and a reflection of Christ's magnificent work on Earth, including His purpose(s) for coming." Exactly how the prospect that most of the people for whom Christ died end up in hell is radiant and magnificent is never explained. One position he didn't consider: Christ is the savior of all men in that not all men are condemned. By saving some, God saved mankind from complete destruction.

  • Someone has finally figured us out: "Since Calvinism denies the necessity of choice, it was only natural that its adherents would seek to force their views on all dissenters." Well, if defending the gospel and the sovereignty of God is considered forcing our views on others, then I guess we're guilty as sin.
