It seems you can't click on any blog without reading about the resurgence of Calvinism. This is due in large part to efforts of men like John Piper.

Kyle's God "is most glorified when He is raised up on the cross, drawing all people to Himself." What about a God who determines the eternal destiny of individuals for his own glory, who works in us, "both to will and to work for his good pleasure" (Philippians 2:13)? Well, that's just not biblical. Kyle would much rather serve a God who really, really, really wants all people to be saved but just can't pull it off, rather than a God who exercises sovereign control over his own creation.
