This Week in Calvinism - June 13, 2008

  • Arthur Sido kicks over some straw men.

  • Brian Sandifer on Calvinism and contemporary Christian counseling.

  • The folks at Triablogue have compiled all the links to their lengthy debate on Calvinism vs. Arminianism.

  • Reformed doctrine and evangelism.

  • Frank Page, outgoing president of the Southern Baptist Convention, on how he sees the rise of Calvinism shaping the future of the denomination: "I have always been a proponent of Southern Baptists going back to their roots … of the first century, not the 17th century [of the Calvinists]. It's healthy to discuss theological issues, but at the end of the day we need to come together in obedience to the Great Commission." Funny, I never thought of theology and evangelism as being mutually exclusive. Is he saying we shouldn't care whether or not evangelists espouse bad theology as long as they are trying to win souls?

    I'm not sure that is what Page is saying, but I know that it is the attitude of most. I've heard it recently, "I'm not concerned with all that doctrine, all I need to know is the 'plan of salvation.'"
