This Week in Calvinism - September 10, 2010

  • Be sure to check out the new book authored by Jeff Peterson, Eddie Eddings, and Jon Cardwell, entitled Against Calvinism: Logical Arguments to Disprove the Doctrines of Grace.

  • Nicholas explains why Calvinists should use the SQ3R study method.

  • Does Revelation 3:20-22 really present a dilemma for Calvinists? No. Back up and read verse 19. I don't see how a reproof of believers within the church is a refutation of eternal security. Those who do refuse to repent demonstrate they were never truly saved in the first place (1 John 2:19).

  • Pastor Justin Holcomb introduces us to the awesome women of the Reformation.

I am confused. I have also seen one other pro-Calvinism blog promote this book. Is it a work of satire, or is the thinking that reading it is insight into the flaws of the other side's argument? What am I missing?

The authors, Jeff Peterson, Eddie Eddings, and Jon Cardwell, are all Calvinists.

Josh: Not to worry.

We haven't jumped the theological ship. We are still indeed on the side of truth in the theological debate.

Please read our Disclaimer/Caveat Emptor. It's vital to understanding the book. Go to Amazon use the "Look Inside" feature and hit "Surprise Me" a few times. It should help.

This is from my "FAQ" page:

"Verses that disprove Calvinism:

We have compiled such a list in book form, with assistance from two swell brothers. We have laid out the doctrines of God’s sovereign grace, one by one, known as the five points of Calvinism, then immediately following each point, have made the logical argument refuting each point along with Scriptural support for the refutation."

Please see Jon's apologetic for the book here: http://justificationbygrace.com/2010/09/07/against-calvinism-apologetic/

Not all have "gotten it," to say the least, and there are indeed many mirth-impaired folks out there.....(The reviews on the "Reviews" page are indeed actual reviews, though)

Thanks.

Josh: This post http://thelightheartedcalvinist.com/2009/05/13/brief-bible-study-comparing-bible-passages-that-disprove-calvinism-and-arminianism/ was the genesis for the book. Reading it should give you an idea...
