This Week in Calvinism - December 16, 2011

  • Preacher-teacher Joel Taylor recommends the book The Truth About New Calvinism as a way of combating the false teaching of men like John Piper, Al Mohler, and R. C. Sproul.

  • Arminian Roger Olson recommends the book Predestination: The American Career of a Contentious Doctrine as an informative look at the debate over the controversial doctrine. He agrees with the author, saying, "[T]he debate over God's sovereignty in salvation cannot be settled merely or simply by collection of biblical evidence."

  • Atheist John Loftus, ever the eloquent wordsmith, calls Calvinism "bull----."

  • Pastor Andrew Davis describes the reform of his Baptist church.

  • John Piper on the origin of Calvinism.

  • Evidences of God's grace in the church today.

There, there...now that feels better, doesn't it? Got that all out in the open. Gotta get that ol' starchy sola scriptura stuff off of our necks! Now, the next step is to stop all of that exhausting pretense of exegesis. Just repeat: "I just don't care what the Apostle Paul said..." as many times as is necessary.

@Robert Warren, I am amazed someone who calls themself a Christian can write something like that and not see the blanant distrust they have for the Word of God. But then again, sin does have a blinding attribute.
