This Week in Calvinism - May 23, 2014

  • Four misconceptions about Calvinism.

  • Jonathan Merritt sees some troubling trends in the "Calvinist revival," such as isolationism, tribalism, and egotism.

  • Despite the fact that Roger Olson believes "consistent Calvinism turns God into a monster and makes it difficult to tell the difference between God and the devil," and despite the fact that he said he would not worship God if it was proven that "the God of consistent, five point Calvinism is the one true God over all," he still believes that Calvinists and Arminians worship the same God.

  • In the SBC, Calvinism is on the rise while baptisms and church membership are declining. Do we blame Calvinism?

  • Red-letter Christian Jenny Rae Armstrong asks a "big question" of both Calvinists and non-Calvinists: "How does our concept of God impact our beliefs about authority, submission, and how God has called people to live in relationship with one another?"

  • John Piper introduces us to his latest book, one that "may be the one most different from all the others. It is less about the God we see and more about how to see him."
