This Week in Calvinism - April 27, 2018

  • I am not at all familiar with "Feeneyism," but apparently it's seen by some as the Catholic version of Calvinism. As Steven Speray writes:
    ...Calvinism and Feeneyism share the same diabolical character that God desires only a select few to be saved and positively wills the others to damnation. For them, the implication must be that Jesus claims to love and have died for all men but in reality, he taunts and mocks the helpless knowing full well that He created them for nothing but eternal suffering in the lake of fire.
    Straw man much?

This Week in Calvinism - April 6, 2018

  • Who causes your suffering?

  • Scott R. Harrington of Erie, PA, writes:
    I believe the cultural-religious right is governed by capitalism, Calvinism and an avaricious, narcissistic racist culture that touts that greed is good, right and "will save America," as Michael Douglas quipped in the movie Wall Street. ... I believe that the gods of the religious right are the Republican Party, the National Rifle Association and Donald Trump. That is their right-wing political trinity.
