This Week in Calvinism - December 6, 2013

  • Kristen O'Neal had this thought when the subject of Calvinism came up in class: "This is when I realized that my greatest fear is not a nonexistent God; my greatest fear is that the universe is ruled by a cruel and arbitrary tyrant."

  • Roger "I'm not sure how to distinguish [the God of Calvinism] from the devil" Olson offers to explain Calvinism to those who profess it: "Many Calvinists simply do not understand Calvinism. I, as an Arminian, understand it better than they do." Thank you, Dr. Olson!

  • Robert W. Patterson sees D. G. Hart's book, Calvinism: A History, as a call to transform individuals, not society.

  • What kind of Calvinist are you?

  • According to Dr. James Ach, "Calvinism can not (sic) escape that theological implications (sic) that reprobation makes God the author of sin." I assume by "author" he means that God decreed the existence of sin. How, then, does he explain the fact that God created man knowing that sin would enter into the world? Seems to me the anti-Calvinist position is caught up in the same theological quandary.

  • The six points of Calvinism, explained briefly using the acronym C.A.L.V.I.N.

  • Typical Arminian caricature of Calvinism.

  • It's nice to know this blog has been an inspiration to others. William Birch has started his own series of weekly updates entitled "Findings in Arminianism."
