This Week in Calvinism - October 16, 2009

  • Hank at Think Wink is up to part 13 of his five-part series on objections to Calvinism.

  • Despite being the most popular view of the atonement, there are problems with Arminian universal redemption. (Yes, I realize not all Arminians believe everything presented here.)

  • Calvinism (not really) refuted.

  • No-point Calvinism?

  • A while back, Roger Olson challenged Calvinists (especially those who criticize books like The Shack) to come up with a novel presenting a clear picture of their own theology. He thinks the picture of a God who actually is in control of life's tragedies would send people scurrying from Calvinism. Triablogue's Steve Hays has an excellent response.

RE: Refutation. The author posted a similar discourse back in April. I responded with a detailed exegesis of his points on my blog. Grueling it was, but you do what you have to to stand up for the truth.

There is a Calvinist book about personal suffering, that is all sovereignty, that brings people a great deal of comfort. It's called the book of Job.

Also the link to your limited atonement site is half good and half bad. Owen, ho hum. I suppose the author likes reading Gill too.
