This Week in Calvinism - December 28, 2007

  • Contrary to popular belief, we Calvinists believe the Bible every bit as much as Arminians do.

  • Listen to Tom Ascol's sermons online.

  • What are you looking for in a religion? Warm, fuzzy feelings? A constant focus on God's love? Less talk about sin? Do you think Classical Theology is a "pagan aberation (sic) of Judeo-Christianity"? If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions, then Relational Theology might be for you. A blogger who calls himself "The Sola Scriptura Theologian" believes this is "a logical system to shame the extremes" of Calvinism and Arminianism. (But especially Calvinism.) He says, "If all you are going to teach is more confusion, perhaps it is better to just shut up." I couldn't agree more.

  • If you ignore the clear teaching of scripture and Christ's own claim that he is the only way to salvation (John 14:6), and if you are looking for a way to fight back against a Calvinist upbringing, then you may one day find yourself embracing pluralism. After all, following your "gut feeling" makes much more sense than following the written, proven, infallible word of the eternal God who created the entire universe.

  • Steve Camp reminds us that if we depart from scripture, we depart from God and a reverence for him.
