This Week in Calvinism - August 28, 2015

  • Due to financial difficulties, the International Mission Board of the SBC is poised to cut 600 to 800 missionaries and staff. Surely we can look forward to a Patheos article blaming it on "anti-mission" Calvinists.

  • Arthur Sido has an interesting perspective on the issue.

  • A list of new and notable books, courtesy of Tim Challies.

  • Pastor Craig Ireland preaches on total depravity. I don't know why, but the doctrines of grace just sound more believable when preached in an Australian accent.

  • Fasting for beginners.

  • Yes, Ashley Madison, life is short. But instead of having an affair, why not love your spouse?

This Week in Calvinism - August 21, 2015

  • It seems you can thank Calvinism for America's love of landscape art.

  • At the same time, you can blame Calvinism for America's less-than-stellar public transit system—you know, because Calvinists hate poor people.

  • How close does Wesley come to Calvinism?

  • Tim Challies begins a series of posts as he reads through J. I. Packer's Knowing God.

  • What is "cage stage" Calvinism, and what causes it? R. C. Sproul Jr. answers.
    

This Week in Calvinism - August 14, 2015

  • In the first lecture in his series "Calvinism and the Christian Life," Ian Hamilton introduces us to John Calvin.

  • Calvinism and the problem of evil.

  • Leighton Flowers critiques Tim Keller's Calvinistic sermon on Romans 8.

  • John Piper address the question, "Do we have to enjoy God to believe?"

  • An excerpt from the New Calvinist Bible (NCB). It's an Arminian attempt at satire, rewriting passages of scripture in the way they think Calvinists read it. (You know, instead of just reading the plain language that's already there.)
