Wesley Walker has a guest post over at Scot McKnight’s blog where he takes aim at Calvinism. While I think the post is interesting and helpfully points out some of the strong problems with Calvinist thought, it probably goes too far. Ultimately there are problems with a strongly Reformed theology of sovereignty because it essentially makes God the author of evil–which is problematic to say the least. At the same time, however, there is as much variation within “Calvinism” as within any other theological camp. Plenty of Calvinists do not follow the theology to it’s logical (reductio ad absurdum?) and final conclusion. Thankfully.
At the least, you get some controversy for your new year.
