Soon to look at Calvinism...!
Calvinism is coming up (at St John's, the teaching of) and I really want to try to grasp some of his ideas, because they seem to cause a lot of heat. I first started to consider Calvin when I began to explore Conservative Evangelicalism. Adrian Warnock has been exploring some of the TULIP doctrine ideas over at his site. My Methodist friend, Dave,at 42, Warnock by name too, but of different theological convictions, is right to concern himself over the narcissism that can sometimes, unintentionally seem to attach itself to the 'I'm saved, you aren't ' mentality. Barth was accused of Universalism, which he denied but surely we have to think of a cosmic salvation, reconciling everything and everyone, the whole of creation to God. What do you think?
