This Week in Calvinism - June 16, 2017

  • Christopher Fisher of the God Is Open podcast discusses an anonymous paper on what he calls the "cult of Calvinism." Considering Fisher is an open theist, you can pretty much guess how it goes.

  • The God Is Open blog links to the paper in question.

  • I've had my share of run-ins with William Birch over the years. He was an Arminian on a crusade against all things Calvinist. Sadly, it seems he has fully abandoned biblical Christianity:
    If I am to continue to be frank, I confess that I never imagined in a million years that I would become LGBTQ-affirming, and actually begin a life-long committed relationship with a man. If anyone had told me five years ago that, by June 2017 I will be pro-LGBTQ and pro-same-gendered relationships, I would have thought the individual to be clinically insane. But life is a journey. I am also far from being alone on my journey.
    Look for this to be his next crusade.

  • Tony Reinke reviews Craig Bartholomew's book Contours of the Kuyperian Tradition.

  • What can we say to friends who are suffering?

  • There's a new breakfast cereal just for Calvinists!

I half expected the recent A&O ministries controversy to be on "This Week In Calvinism"... sadly I was let down. Sometimes you just got to wait till next week.

Sorry! Are you referring to Dr. White's dealings with Brannon Howse? I was kind of hoping to see if Howse would apologize.

I was referring to that. I doubt he will apologize, but with a sovereign God we can pray he soften the mans heart toward Dr. White's methods.

Lee Shelton said...

Agreed. I did just post Dr. White's video refuting Howse.

I saw that. 8-)

Speaking of crusades . . . that's a bit of the pot calling the kettle black. But I'm used to such hypocrisy among your ilk.

I've tried several times to make amends with you but I realize now that such is an impossibility. I suppose your God decreed it thusly -- as a matter of fact, Shelton, He even decreed my current status. Looks like your biggest problem is with your Calvinistic version of God.

William, we've had our differences over the years, but for me it always seemed to be a disagreement between brothers. It's sad to see that you have decided to embrace a sinful lifestyle and turn your back on scripture. You are now attacking truths held by both Calvinists and Arminians alike. You may believe you have found refuge in an affirming denomination, but it will only lead you further away from the truth. It is my prayer you will find true faith and repentance.
