This Week in Calvinism - June 15, 2012

  • David Miller wants to promote a "New Baptist Majority."

  • Tom Ascol, Executive Director of Founders Ministries, expresses "mixed emotions about the recent statement on the 'traditional' Southern Baptist understanding of salvation."

  • Jim Futral, executive director of the Mississippi Baptist Convention, accuses Calvinists of taking the simple gospel message and enlarging it "to a huge volume of instruction that is almost mind boggling."

  • Richard Beck would like to say something nice about Calvinism, particularly about it's appeal when dealing with pain and suffering. Yes, the Psalms deal quite a bit with God's sovereignty over such things.

  • This week's Stating the Obvious Award goes to the Baptist Press, for its recent story entitled "Statement on Calvinism sparks blog discussion."

  • That awkward moment when we speak the gospel.

  • The inimitable Phil Johnson of Pyromaniacs fame retires from blogging.

  • So shocking was Phil's departure that even Adolf Hitler weighed in.
