This Week in Calvinism - June 9, 2017

  • McCamy Taylor posts on Democratic Underground:
    [T]he roots of the flaw in United States culture that makes Trump's criminal enterprise possible can be found in a particular brand of Calvinism that goes something like "We are born either damned or blessed, and we can know which we are by weighing God's favor shown upon us in this life." Or, more simply "The rich are better than the rest of us."
    How do you like that straw man? The post gets much worse, and the comments are just as bad.

  • SpurgeonFan writes:
    Calvanism should not be contentious. As one who holds to the "Doctrines of Grace", I know there can be many theological differences with our brothers of a more Arminian persuasion. However, that should never be the cause of anger, bitterness, or strife...especially if we claim to believe salvation (and the theological sanctification) of every believer is entirely in the sovereign hand of a faithful God working by His Spirit.
    I couldn't agree more.

  • Chuck McKnight finishes his series on comparing the acronym WHEAT to Calvinism's TULIP, Molinism's ROSES, and Arminianism's DAISY.

  • It's an "Explore the Bible" edition of Free Stuff Fridays at Challies.com.

  • Lay aside the weight of perfection.
