This Week in Calvinism - August 23, 2013

  • Few things are more Reformed than eating sausages.

  • Merge Calvinism and universalism and you are getting to a theology Lana Hope can live with.

  • What is the root of all evil in the American church? Why, Calvinism, of course.

  • Chris Gordon discusses two-kingdom theology and neo-Calvinism.

  • One blogger observes, "Calvinists have a corner on theologically-themed conferences. Arminians have apologetically-themed conferences. Leadership conferences don't do theology."

  • I'll admit that I've never heard an Arminian say, "I saved myself," if you'll admit that you've never heard a Calvinist say, "I'm a puppet."

  • Not to be outdone by Calvinists, Roger Olson lays out an Arminian ordo salutis. He concludes, "There is urgency to the call to conversion. It is something we do, enabled by God, in response to God's call, and not something that just happens to us. It is freely entering into a new relationship, not just having a new condition imposed." Wait...conversion "is something we do"?

"It is something we do."

Doesn't that put a crimp in your "I'll agree I never heard an Arminian say, 'I saved myself'"? Almost?
