This Week in Calvinism - March 11, 2016

  • 22% of Australians claim no religious affiliation. "So why is it that a sizeable minority (around 30%) of Australians oppose gay marriage, blame the poor for their own plight, and treat drug usage as a moral issue?" John Wilkins blames what he calls "secular Calvinism."

  • Three gifts we need, but hate to receive: obstacles, suffering, and everyday irritation.

  • Why do so many non-Calvinists identify as Calvinists? I'm sure Ronnie Rogers will tell us.

  • Let's pack it in, fellow Calvinists. I just found out that there is no real scriptural support for Calvinism.

This Week in Calvinism - March 4, 2016

  • Director Robert Eggers discusses his horror film The Witch: "The real world and the fairytale world were the same thing in the early modern period. That's really the most shocking thing: to understand the mindset in 17th century English Puritan Calvinism."

  • Steven Anderson once again rants against Calvinism. Did you know the word "sovereign" doesn't appear in the Bible? Well, at least not in the one "true" Bible, the KJV.

  • Jimmy Needham discusses how the doctrine of election saved him from depression.

  • R. C. Sproul asks, "Is your Jesus too small?"

  • Roger Olson believes in free will, but, "One thing all Christian agree about is that true freedom, the freedom of obedience and conformity to the image of Christ, is a gift of God’s grace that will only be complete in our heavenly glorification."
