This Week in Calvinism - July 9, 2010

  • James White on Ergun Caner: What started as a scandal has become a cover-up.

  • Caner's defenders, of course, respond with class.

  • The Seeking Disciple (who claims not to be a Caner defender) made a rather interesting comparison: "The story of Michael Servetus and Ergun Caner seem to be drawing parallels as [James] White and some Calvinists are pressing for his destruction." Seriously?

  • Carl Gobelman has begun a series of posts answering the question "Is Calvinism biblical?"

  • Westminster Bookstore is having a moving sale, with staff picks available for 45% off.

Thanks for the plug Lee. My point in my post was not that James White wants to kill Caner. I would hope not! My point was that I see White's main problem with Caner begin before this situation due to Caner's non-Calvinistic views. White, in my estimation, has had it out for Caner for quite some time. However, you are correct that I am not a Caner defender since I have only viewed it from White's blog.

Have a good weekend brother!

I don't know how far back the conflict goes, but I first saw Caner on TV about four years ago preaching a sermon entitled "Why I Am Predestined Not to Be a Hyper-Calvinist." The problem is that he defined hyper-Calvinism in such a way that any form of Calvinism was to be considered "hyper."

Even Evangelical Calvinism ;-)?

Lee,

I heard that sermon as well, and bowed my head saying Oy! If Calvinism is "hyper-Calvinism," then what is actual hyper-Calvinism? Oh, the humanity.

BTW, I came here today looking for THIS week in Calvinism (?)
