This Week in Calvinism - February 8, 2013

  • Robin Schumacher addresses the top five misconceptions of Calvinism.

  • As one anti-Calvinist YouTuber puts it, "All man-made theologies tend to humanism and pride, but the grand-daddy of all heresies is Calvinism, or Gnosticism in new clothes." Oh, how I long for the day when these critics would pause long enough to at least find out what Calvinists actually believe before launching their attacks.

  • Jared Moore helps Joe Aguillard and other Louisiana Baptists understand what it means to be a hyper-Calvinist.

  • Dave Miller is working to see a more productive discussion of Calvinism in the SBC.

  • The John 3:16 Conference was first held in 2008 at the First Baptist Church in Woodstock, Georgia. It was led by former SBC president Jerry Vines, and its intent was to offer a scholarly refutation of Calvinism. The event was so popular, so insightful, and so inspiring that, a mere five years later, they're having another one.

  • In the weeks leading up to this year's John 3:16 Conference, SBCToday will post interviews with each person scheduled to speak at the Conference. Up first: Dr. Jerry Vines. Naturally, the conference has garnered some criticism, but Vines states that this demonstrates "what I have been saying for sometime now: There is a New Calvinism among us that is aggressive, hostile, and militant." Hmmmm. I guess that would explain all those conferences organized specifically to attack Arminianism.

  • John Piper recommends these seven books for pastors.
