This Week in Calvinism - June 4, 2010

  • Many Arminians claim that Calvinism makes God the author of evil. Paul Manata responds: "We can do the same with peace and salvation. If 'author' means what Arminians say it means, then they should become Calvinists. They should deny that God foresaw their faith apart from his decree, plan, origination. God masterminded their salvation, planned their salvation, caused their salvation, and set the initial conditions in place for their salvation to follow as a consequent."

  • Is Mark Driscoll the face of contemplative Calvinism?

  • Calvinists should stay away from Arminian dentists.

  • Some Arminians consider it unbiblical, heinous, and shocking to hear Calvinists say, as John Piper has, that God "decides who will believe and undeservingly be saved and who will rebel and deservingly perish." (By the way, that quote can be found in context here.) Funny how they can read Romans 9:22-24 and never level that same accusation at Paul.

  • Michael Horton reviews N. T. Wright's book, After You Believe: Why Christian Character Matters.

  • The Irish Calvinist on learning contrition, mercy and forgiveness on the baseball field.
