- Sam Waldron completes his series "21 Misunderstandings of Calvinism."
- According to Greg Boyd, Calvinism misses the point about salvation:
The Father "draws" people (or not) in response to their hearts. If a human heart is unwilling, however, it is hardened to God's leading and comes under the influence of Satan.Sounds a lot to me like Boyd is saying man is ultimately in control of his own salvation.
God wants all to be saved and is working in every human heart to get each person to accept the Gospel. But people can and do resist God's influence and thwart his will for their lives (see e.g. Lk 7:30). When a heart has been successfully opened, however, God goes further and "draws" that person to Jesus Christ.
- Phillip Holmes discusses the mind-blowing grace of God.
- Andrew, of Beyond Calvinism, attempts to dismantle the Calvinist interpretation of Romans 9.
- Arminian William Birch sees a waning of Calvinism, which has historically seen periods of ebb and flow: "Arminianism, on the other hand, is not burdened with popularity and decline. Arminian theology, the theology of the early Church fathers, carries a perpetual flow, constantly, invariably present within the Church."
- On a "Radio Free Geneva" episode of The Dividing Line, James White responds to a sermon by Pastor Ronnie W. Rogers at Truett-McConnell College. Rogers's points are fleshed out in more detail here and here.
