This Week in Calvinism - May 7, 2010

  • A Catholic poster on Theology Web thought he could "demonstrate rationally and scripturally the invalidation of Calvinism, penal substitution and imputed righteousness taught by the reformer, John Calvin." You kind of have to read the nonsense to believe it.

  • How many Christians are Calvinists? Two percent? Don Bryant thinks "a case could be made for even less."

  • J. K. Jones is on part 2 in his layman’s critique of Whosoever Will: A Biblical-Theological Critique of Five-Point Calvinism.

  • Randy Olds wonders, "Can a true Calvinist truly repent?" After all, if God determines everything, why should anyone be sorry for their sins?

  • James White weighs in on the Ergun Caner fiasco.

I read that first link and certainly agree that it was a bunch of nonsense! Some of the time I could not figure out what they were trying to say. Its a good example of the fact that unbelievers think that the gospel is so nonsensical, but those of us who believe know that God chose the "foolishness" of the gospel to save His people.

Thanks for the link to my blog. I didn't expect my ponderings to get as much attention as they did. I was trying to figure out why my traffic jumped up so high, and then was informed that I made 'This Week In Calvinism.'

The additional visits prompted some good conversation on the topic. Thanks again...I'm always looking for good conversation partners as I question some of the deeper things of God.

Grace and Peace,

Randy
