From the Christian Science Monitor – Calvinism is Back

An interesting article from the Christian Science Monitor related to the resurgence of Calvinism can be found here.

I’m an upper Midwestern guy who has recently entered the "Buick stage" of life and decided to migrate to Florida. This blog is an attempt to rectify discordant aspects within my Christian faith ... or what often feels like my lack of Christian faith. Things which make life more enjoyable include strong black coffee, charcoal grilling anytime of the year, putz'ing at a table saw, playing chess, a good orthopedic surgeon and an occasional IPA. Please feel free to poke around and comment as you wish. I welcome discussion and the insights of others.

  1. I assume the mourning period re: Joe Nathan is close to over….?

    Paul Washer (a Calvinist himself) says something like this regarding new Calvinists: “They should lock them up for two or three years so they don’t hurt anybody.”

    We’ll be visiting sunny Minnesota this weekend. Will we be able to see the glow from your location? :)

    1. Delighted to have you visit MN. Too bad today’s the last of the pleasant weather as cooler temps and rain will prevail over the Easter weekend. I hear conflicting things re Joe Nathan – that he’s going to undergo elbow surgery to REPLACE the tendon and just yesterday as the Twins were setting their final roster Joe was put on the 15 day disabled status. Who knows. But I have confidence that at the end of the season he’ll ’sink’ the Tiger’s play-off hopes again! {;-D) Say, if you’ll be in the SE metro area (or can make that happen) I’d be pleased to buy the coffee and show you “glow-central”.

    2. William Lane Craig is a Molinist so I would find his critique of Boyd interesting. I think Open Theism has some problems as I’m not convinced by the way which Boyd explains Peter’s denial of Jesus, for example. But I cannot get around anything in scripture as far as covenant relationships, prayer and contingency without conceding that some things must be open. I shy away from the term open theism. But I can’t escape the concept.
