This Week in Calvinism - November 2, 2018

  • Roger Olson has long believed that "the God of TULIP Calvinism cannot be good." Well, he's still at it:
    So, when I argue that God predestining to eternal torment those he could save would be not good but evil I am not imposing an alien, philosophical concept of "good" on God. I am simply following Edwards in believing that "good" is self-evidently benevolence to being—even in God.
    Shouldn't the "good" in anything be judged in light of bringing glory to God? If the punishment of sin glorifies God, then the God of TULIP Calvinism cannot help but be good.

  • Pastor Brian Mann sums up Calvinism in a sermon: "Calvinism is largely telling us how God loved us."

  • Davis Carlton addresses the charge by Leighton Flowers that Calvinism feeds the victim mentality underlying the social justice movement.

  • James White responds to a Catholic Answers article against Calvinism.

  • The anti-Calvinist SBC Today blog is shutting down "for the foreseeable future."

  • In the mood for some "Reformation rap"? Check out The Five Points of Calvinism, the latest album from hip-hop artist Aaron Ventura.
