I read the article and a few comments about Calvinism in China.

It seems that to the world, Calvinism is the bloodiest sect out there and China is certainly headed for worse than communism if they all become calvinists.

I forgot to say thanks for the link. It is interesting to hear what people are saying.

"Calvinism is the bloodiest sect out there"? What do you mean by that?

I see that the Rear Admiral (Doctor)Joesph H. Miller must resort to a self publishing house to get his book sold. Maybe that says something for the quality of work?

Hey,

I started a blog - http://hcenthusiasts.blogspot.com/

Check it out, I'm looking for calvinist authors (like yourself). If you would like to become an author, leave me your email and I'll send you an invite.

Of interest, Grace Community Church elder and executive director of Grace to You, Phil Johnson, is a Baptistic Calvinist. This statement appears on his website: “Theologically, Phil is a committed Calvinist—with a decidedly Baptistic bent.” (Who is Phillip R. Johnson?) Even more interesting is this statement: “He...is a member of the Fellowship of Independent Reformed Evangelicals (FIRE).” The slogan of FIRE is “In essentials Unity, In non-essentials Liberty, in all things Charity.” (FIRE) Why is this interesting? FIRE’s slogan is nearly identical to the slogan of Phoenix Freemasonry! “It is the glory of Masonry to teach Unity in essentials, Liberty in details, Charity in all things; and by this sign its spirit must at last prevail.”

Charles, all I can say is, so what? Is there anything unbiblical about that phrase? Is it not a good philosophy by which to live? The fact that the Freemasons have a similar motto means nothing.

Lee R. Shelton, III said...

That quote from FIRE is originally attributed to Augustine, first century Christian and author of the Confessions.

He said that some 15 centuries before the FreeMasons came into existence.
