This Week in Calvinism - July 22, 2011

  • I didn't know this, but "Calvinists, in a nutshell, believe that those who have ills (sickness, lost job, whatever) 'have it coming to them.'" Forget the TULIP. This is a much more concise description of our theology.

  • I suppose J. C. Thibodaux, given his position, would have to say that Christ's sacrifice did indeed atone for the sins of every man.

  • Calvinism is not merely a soteriology.

  • The message of the resurging Calvinism.

  • Ex-Preacher Man prefers the original KJV because it doesn't use Calvinistic words like "sovereign" or "sovereignty."

  • Help your boys become Christian men.

  • Primary sources on the two wills of God.

  • It's too late to send presents, but today's my birthday. Just thought you might like to know.

Bill Maher the "Apatheist"

Bill Maher states that he's an "apatheist" (an apathetic atheist), someone who doesn't waste his time thinking about God or religion. This is interesting, considering he has bothered to come up with a term to describe his non-belief in God, and that he put out a feature-length film devoted entirely to making a mockery of religion.

Maher certainly lives up to the description presented in Proverbs 21:24.

This Week in Calvinism - July 8, 2011

  • Finally, at long last, someone uses scripture to refute Calvinism! OK, not really: "Blah, blah, blah, here are a few isolated verses refuting Calvinism, blah, blah, blah, Calvinists are dominionists, blah, blah, blah, Servetus, blah, blah, blah, Spurgeon wasn't really a Calvinist, blah, blah, blah," and so on.

  • Did you know that America's "national religion, an ugly mix of Calvinism and evangelical Christianity, is the ultimate expression of greed and manifestation of death wishes which destroys any human love for the poor and down-trodden"? I didn't either.

  • A debate between Arminian Dr. Phil Fernandes and Calvinist Chris Comis.

  • Southern Baptists and Calvinism: Can't we all just get along?

  • Amid accusations from former leaders at Sovereign Grace, C. J. Mahaney takes a leave of absence.

  • Two tensions in Jonathan Edwards's view of history.
