This Week in Calvinism - January 15, 2010

  • TULIPs and DAISYs and ROSES, oh my!

  • Dr. James White and Dr. Michael Brown will be debating Calvinism on January 26 and 27.

  • Calvinism or Arminianism? Brother Mark chooses "biblical universalism."

  • Randal Rauser thinks Calvinism undermines God's sovereignty, because "if God always acts to maximize his own glory and damning some maximizes his own glory, then God cannot save all because doing so would be to act against his own greatest glory." Sounds to me like a variation of the "Can God make a rock so big that he can't lift it?" argument. God, in maximizing his own glory, is simply remaining consistent with his nature. Would anyone dare to argue that it's possible for God to go against his own nature?

But ... that's true, isn't it? I mean, he's not actually going to argue that God plans or will save all, is he? Surely he wouldn't argue that God could or should go against His own nature, would he? I don't get it.
