This Week in Calvinism - January 14, 2011

  • Bob muses, "If God can be surprised, can Calvinists claim unconditional election with absolute certainty?" I think a better question to ask is, "If God can be surprised, can he be God?"

  • Sarah is "giving up on this whole Calvinism argument."

  • Joel explores keeping the Sabbath, believing that command to be binding on Christians today. He admits it may be difficult, raising such dilemmas as deciding whether or not to eat out at a restaurant or take a taxi. But Jesus himself said, "The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath" (Mark 2:27). I believe the Fourth Commandment finds its fulfillment in Christ, as he is our Sabbath rest (Hebrews 4:9-10). (There's an interesting article on that here.)

  • Calvinistic Cartoons: The Game!

  • It's an age-old story. Calvinist boy meets Arminian girl online and they fall in love.

  • Fred Phelps and other members of the Westboro cult are not Calvinists.

  • TurretinFan points out a glaring inconsistency in Louis Ruggiero's book, The God of Calvinism: a Rebuttal of Reformed Theology.

Lee's just maneuvering for a free game set, Eddie. Don't fall for it.
