This Week in Calvinism - May 31, 2013

  • An old straw man presented as a "new argument" against Calvinism.

  • Battle lines are being drawn in the Sovereign Grace Ministries controversy.

  • Remember the Calvinism Advisory Committee set up by the SBC? It has finally released its statement on the issue, entitled "Truth, Trust, and Testimony in a Time of Tension." So I guess that means the issue is settled once and for all.

  • Denny Burk writes, "This is a good statement, one that I hope that Southern Baptists will unify around." Also endorsing the statement are notable Calvinists like Mark Dever, Tom Ascol, and Al Mohler.

  • Peter Lumpkins, in a rare display of disciplined restraint, says, "I do not want to comment on the report itself before carefully reading it first." I'm sure we're all waiting with bated breath for his well-reasoned response.

I love how he casually throws in, "not to mention that Calvin was a murderer." Piling one straw man on top of another!
