This Week in Calvinism - April 24, 2009

  • A student says that we do right to call ourselves Calvinists because we do not believe Christ.

  • Phil Johnson comments, "In all candor, sometimes saving Calvinism from abuse at the hands of young Calvinists seems a bigger challenge and tougher problem than defending Calvinism from the Arminian misreresentations."

  • Matthew Svoboda discusses why he is a Calvinist.

  • Finally, after hundreds of years, someone has managed to disprove Calvinism. And he did it with only 39 verses!

  • Regarding the Calvinist belief that God wills all things, Paul argues that we have no answer for Jeremiah 7:31, a verse he thinks explicitly says that certain human actions never occurred to God. He quotes the King James: "And they have built the high places of Tophet, which is in the valley of the son of Hinnom, to burn their sons and their daughters in the fire; which I commanded them not, neither came it into my heart." OK, so God never commanded them to burn their children, and he never considered commanding them to burn their children. Where's the dilemma here? Surely he isn't suggesting God was caught off-guard.

A good answer to Jeremiah 7, which was a weak argument.
