This Week in Calvinism - September 23, 2016

  • Messages from Ligonier's 2016 fall conference, "The Dawn of the Reformation," are available to watch online.

  • What you need to know about the Calvinism-Arminianism debate.

  • Apparently, the God of Calvinism is like a father who smokes while telling his kids to avoid tobacco.

  • Roger Olson defends Calvinists against misrepresentation.

  • Michael Heiser, in an interview about his new book, The Unseen Realm, had this to say about young Calvinists:
    I think once they awaken to the fact that hardline Calvinism requires that God either wants evil to happen or needs evil to make his plan work, they get rightly offended at the character of God or see him as a lesser being unworthy of loyalty. Why would God decree what he doesn't want to happen? Why does he need suffering to make things work out? Isn't he smart enough to find a better way than those options? If he is, then he must enjoy the suffering he has caused or was clever enough to bring about so he gets his way. I don't see why anyone would love a being whose character is like that. We wouldn't behave that way and feel love for ourselves.
    Straw man much?

  • We can take comfort in knowing that Roger Olson considers "most Reformed-Calvinist Christians as evangelical."

  • Dr. James White deals with anti-Reformed rhetoric on The Dividing Line.

  • Ever wonder how to argue against the wicked heresy of Calvinism? Here are seven tips.

  • Chris Dunn doesn't wear Calvinism on his sleeve.

  • The Rio Olympics and Calvin's mission.

  • Frank Morgan takes issue with the notion that man cannot choose good:
    According to Calvinism, man does not have free will; he cannot choose good over evil under any circumstances. The Bible does contain verses such as Isaiah 64:6, Jeremiah 13:23, Jeremiah 17:9, etc., but these are referring to man in his unregenerate state.
    Well, exactly. Unregenerated man cannot choose good. It would appear you have accepted the first point of Calvinism. Only four more to go!

  • Plan now to die well.
