This Week in Calvinism - August 11, 2017

  • "Baptist life in America was deeply shaped by the Reformed tradition," writes Curtis Freeman, "but what has been coming back is not the recovery of the theology of Luther and Calvin. It is something very different—something more radical and extreme."

  • According to Salon, it is the Republicans' "belief in the 'prosperity gospel' and a crude form of Calvinism" that makes them despise poor people.

  • Sheila Kennedy essentially echoes that same sentiment.

  • A member of the Recovery from Mormonism discussion forum asks, "Why are Calvinists trying to attract Mormons?" She is concerned because "it is the most horrific Christian theology ever."

  • Did Reformer theologians make heavy use of pagan sources in their writings?

  • God will bring you through.

  • Leighton Flowers critiques Les Lanphere's film Calvinist.
