This Week in Calvinistm - April 11, 2008

  • Nick Norelli, a non-Calvinist, likes the logic of Calvinism.

  • Peter Kirk, another non-Calvinist, does not.

  • DesiringGod.org blogger Tia gives us 10 ways to help kids love missions.

  • Rev. James M. Leonard is concerned about Calvinists in Arminian clothing. If you're a Calvinist pastor in a predominately Arminian church, and you say things like "Jesus died for the sins of his people," he will say that kind of language is "nothing but pure obfuscation" and will accuse you of teaching "divergent theology on the sly." His advice to the ignorant (and seemingly easily duped) Arminian congregations who may fall victim to this scheme: Protect yourselves "by requiring a new pastor to enter into a covenantal agreement that would require a resignation if the pastor's theology were to change significantly during the course of the pastorate."

    I am not sure how telling people that Jesus died for the sins of His people is being sly or obfiscation. I say that all the time because it a) is what I believe and b) what the Bible teaches. Not sure how that is being sneaky.
