This Week in Calvinism - December 17, 2010

  • Why am I not surprised that the pastor of an independent, premillennial, King-James-only, Baptist church thinks Calvinism is a false doctrine?

  • As Trevor W. points out, it's rather inconsistent of a publication to run a series of articles entitled "The Case Against Calvinism" while at the same time reprinting sermons by C. H. Spurgeon.

  • Carl Gobelman continues blogging through the Westminster Shorter Catechism.

  • One of the things Scott Oakland loves about being Presbyterian "is that the issue of Arminianism v Calvinism is not an issue like it is in congregational evangelical church."

  • Theologian Roger Nicole passes away at age 95.

Okay, two things:

1) The second entry is absolutely hilarious!!! (And I agree.)

2) Scott Oakland made a great point, IMO. When I was a Presbyterian (PCA) in 1998, the subject of Calvinism vs. Arminianism rarely came up.

Leaving the Presbyterians and joining back up with Southern Baptists, however, is a different story entirely; it's all they talk about (at least the academically-minded).

I think this is one among other problems with the SBC: their theological umbrella is too big. Others may appreciate such diversity, but I am not one of them.

God bless.

Glad the Independent Fundamental Baptist preacher has his theology straight from the Bible!

RE: The second entry.

Sometime back, a blogger ranted against Calvinism on a blog that was somehow (my failing memory has indeed failed as to the exact name...)named after John Bunyan and "Pilgrim's Progress." I pointed out the irony. They were not amused.
