This Week in Calvinism - August 12, 2011

  • J. F. Jones thinks "that a helpful lens for understanding the New Calvinism is to determine who is a reviser and who is a reviver."

  • Is Calvinism fatalism?

  • The family tree of New Calvinism?

  • Rachel believes the false doctrine of Calvinism has "done more damage to true Christianity than any, for it is the most deceptive. ... It twists the Truth by using the very Bible which is the Truth!"

  • Paul A. Hughes accuses Calvinists of limiting God. He says that we "impose upon God the requirement to predetermine everything in order to be God. Thus, in their minds, God has no free will in the matter, but is compelled to predetermine — which is faulty logic by which their whole system falls." So in pointing out what God does for the sake of his own glory (Isaiah 43:7, Isaiah 49:3, Jeremiah 13:11, Psalm 25:11, Psalm 106:8, Matthew 5:16, John 17:24, Romans 9:17, Ephesians 1:4-6, 1 Peter 2:12, etc.), we're actually putting God in a box?

  • Children Desiring God has released a new curriculum on biblical manhood and womanhood.

Rachel, Rachel, where do I start?

I am a Calvinist and yet I do not recognize the Calvinism you write about. That means that one of us is lacking in understanding!

p.s. posted the reply here because apparently Rachel is not allowing comments on her blog.
