This Week in Calvinism - December 30, 2011

  • Calvinism is on the rise, but so is Buddhism. It seems Americas "cross religious lines much more easily than political ones." And the author thinks that's a good thing.

  • The five conundrums of Calvinism, according to Roger Olson. I would agree. If one insists on holding God to human standards, then, yes, these are conundrums.

  • Thomas Schreiner on Calvinism and the warning passages in Hebrews.

  • Don Bryant accuses John Piper of being "on the wrong side of cruel."

  • One blogger writes, "If election has predetermined every man's fate, nothing anybody can do will change anything, so why try? This is the point of Calvinism, spiritual inactivity." I guess the writer assumes that sinful and rebellious men want to please God.

  • Justin Taylor presents many different ways of reading through the Bible in 2012.
