This Week in Calvinism - April 17, 2009

  • SweetSomber asks, "Was Calvin really a Christian?" She wonders because "Calvin's ONE brief account of his conversion, (and that says something right there, considering his life work of writing) contains nothing about receiving Christ as his Savior." What then are we to make of all the conversion experiences documented in the Bible? After all, not a single one talks about "receiving Christ."

  • If you completely ignore history, you too might believe the lie that John Calvin was responsible for having Servetus burned at the stake.

  • Calvinism, the elect, and children.

  • Joshua prefers Universalism over Arminianism and Calvinism. I guess that means God does everything for us rather than his own glory. Sorry, but we are not more important than God.

  • Jonathan Girotti on man's "free" will.

  • Who really limits the atonement?

  • Paul Manata addresses Brian McLaren's "disingenuous orthodoxy."

  • Dan Phillips reminds us that faith really does matter.

I just want to thank you for your "This Week in Calvinism" postings. It could almost be a blog in and of itself.

Uh oh, Calvin never gave his testimony, believed in infant baptism, and only mentioned love 3 times in the seven chapters that were picked at random. Gasp! He must have been a pagan.
