This Week in Calvinism - January 20, 2012

  • Michael Horton and Roger Olson discuss Calvinism.

  • Dan Phillips reviews (and recommends) Thomas R. Schreiner's book 40 Questions about Christians and Biblical Law.

  • John Piper on Psalm 135 and the pleasure of God in all he does.

  • One reason for the rise of Calvinism, according to The Seeking Disciple, may be the fact that there are so many impressive web sites available. Online resources for Arminians are lacking, but there may be a good reason for that: "It has been said that Arminianism is a moving faith in that Arminians are too busy seeking to evangelize the world to sit down and promote their thoughts in books or on the Internet."

"... Arminians are too busy seeking to evangelize the world to sit down and promote their thoughts in books or on the Internet."

Ironically, this statement was promoted:
1)on the internet
2)by an Arminian

But perhaps he wasn't sitting down?

Did you read my statement in its context? I noted that this has been said (not by me) and then said that it was not a good statement. Be fair now.

Thanks for the plug though!

Seeking Disciple,

I just read your article and I think you are right. The article is written with your characteristic fair-mindedness and balance. We all need to be careful to communicate accurately; it's too easy to misconstrue the other side (and I don't think Lee set out to intentionally misconstrue what you said - but I mistook what he wrote). Thanks for being a good example in these matters. I wish all Arminians were as careful, and I think all Calvinists including myself can learn from your style.

Blessings,
Derek
