This Week in Calvinism - July 27, 2012

  • There is nothing arrogant in Calvinist theology, so why do Calvinists have a reputation of being arrogant? David French has some theories.

  • Dr. Brad Reynolds will "gladly affirm" that the belief that God foreordains men to evil is heretical, but he draws the line at calling all Calvinists heretical.

  • Dr. Michael A. Cox, in critiquing Calvinism, reads the accounts of Jeremiah and Jonah and comes away with a rather interesting view of God's sovereignty: "While God's nature never changes, nor does He repent in the human sense, His purposes, quite obviously, can be altered according to the moral and ethical decisions of man." So what does scripture mean when it refers to the "unchangeable character" of God's purpose (Hebrews 6:17)?

  • Join Tim Challies in reading The Discipline of Grace, by Jerry Bridges.

  • We cherish the doctrine of election, but, as John Piper points out, we must wield it with care.
