This Week in Calvinism - May 1, 2009

  • Levi seems to think that Calvinists make divine love subordinate to divine justice. Not at all. God is love, but it is a just and holy love. And while that love isn't subordinate to his justice, it's impossible to comprehend apart from that justice.

  • According to economic think tank director Xavier Comtesse, Swiss banking secrecy has its roots in Calvinism: "We protect against any state despotism. This way of thinking has historical roots in Protestantism, which in Calvin's time sought to protect the people against the despotism of the powerful Catholic Church."

  • There's a nice post at Calvin500.com on Calvinism and missions: "If we allow Scripture to be our guide, we'll find that election -- rather than being the enemy of missions -- is actually the very source of evangelistic zeal."

  • Why does Michael Patton, a Calvinistic complementarian, go to an Arminian egalitarian church? He explains.

  • Wesleyan Arminian has posted a quiz for Calvinists. Check it out!

  • According to a recent survey in the Netherlands, young Dutch people are more Calvinist than their elders.

  • If perfect angels could sin and fall, how do we know that we won't in eternity? Pastor John Piper answers.

  • Mike Ratliff on the perseverance of the saints.

Your write: 'According to a recent survey in the Netherlands, young Dutch people are more Calvinist than their elders.'

Don't believe all this nonsense about the Netherlands. This country is de-christianized to such an extent that Calvinism is reduced to merely a social, behavioural or cultural category.
