This Week in Calvinism - November 21, 2008

Not much to report this week...
  • Lisa has some tough questions for Calvinists.

  • Calvinists are more perceptive than atheists. Who didn't know that? ;)

  • Nathaniel Wallace once "happily embraced this prickly, dour theology" of Calvinism, but has since seen the light and apologized.

  • Call yourself "Reformed" and you'll irritate Dr. James Emery White.

  • "White Man" doesn't believe Calvinism is a cult; he believes it has evolved beyond that into a religion.

Very perceptive, Lee--especially since the article is still in progress.

You've made explicit what is still implicit as I develop the argument.

I went to the link to read what James Emery White wrote. He doesn't diss Calvinism, just the use of the word "reformed" to refer to Calvinism alone. And in fairness, I think he has a point. Kind of like when people used to call themselves "Spirit-filled" if they were charismatic, as if non-charismatics were not.

The White Man has now completed his subsequent post, "Is Calvinism a Religion?"

Thanks for linking to my blog. I consider myself a Calvinist, but would really like those who've been thinking about it longer to weigh in. Any book recommendations for my "tough questions"?
To God be all glory,
Lisa of Longbourn
