This Week in Calvinism - August 29, 2008

  • Here's another blogger who, because of his misunderstanding of the doctrines of grace, thinks that "Calvinism blasphemes the Living God."

  • No, no, silly Calvinist. John 6:37 doesn't mean what you think it means. You need to learn to read scripture like an objective, unbiased Arminian.

  • Michael Brewer is not a Calvinist (yet?), but he is studying what's at the heart of Calvinism.

  • Can you be a Calvinist and a Dispensationalist? I suppose, but as Christians we already know what it's like to live with conflicting natures. Why would you want to make things even more difficult for yourself?

  • I briefly touched on the subject in a recent post, but Michael Jones goes further and lists a few reasons why some Calvinists can't seem to evangelize like Calvinists.

  • Pyromaniac Dan Phillips reviews the book If You Could Ask God One Question, by Paul Williams and Barry Cooper.

    The Contemporary Calvinist,

    Thanks for the mention and link back. Yeah, I was pretty much given a very foul charicature of "you cold hearted Calvinists." However, as I am breaking away from the old and broken foundations I was given growing up, I am finding that there is a lot more to Calvinism than what I was briefly taught.

    I'm not saying that I am looking to become Calvinist or not become Calvinist in thought or theory, just that I owe it to you all to at least educate myself on the matter.

    Perhaps should be, "...Dan Phillips, who in fact is both a Calvinist and a dispensationalist, and for exactly the same reason...."
