Theonomy: an extension of Calvinism's judicial theology

Dean C. Curry, in a review of Theonomy: A Reformed Critique, writes that John Muether’s “The Theonomic Attraction” is a “first-rate analysis of why theonomy is thriving.”[1] I beg to differ. Curry’s praise for Muether’s evaluation of the “theonomic mind-set”[2] tells me that Curry has done little if any reading of Reconstructionist works. The same […]

TULIP is not enough: Reformed theology and culture

Calvinism is synonymous with a comprehensive biblical world-and-life view. Simply put, I was told that the Bible applies to every area of life.

Old Calvinism is Now the New Calvinism

"Calvinism is back," so says David Van Biema in the March 22, 2009 issue of Time magazine. Calvinism is listed as one of "10 ideas changing the world Right now." It's third on the list. When most people hear the word "Calvinism," they bite down only on the gristle of predestination and then spit out the whole piece of meat. There is much more to Calvinism that is obscured by the misapplied aversion to particular redemption. As a student at Reformed Theological Seminary in the 1970s, I was taught that certain cultural applications flowed from a consistent application of Calvinism. Calvinism is synonymous with a comprehensive biblical world-and-life view. Simply put, I was told that the Bible applies to every area of life. To be a Calvinist is to make biblical application to issues beyond personal salvation (Heb. 5:11-14).

John MacArthur, Israel, Calvinism, and Postmillennialism -- Part 3

The place of Israel in Bible prophecy has a long history among non-dispensational theologians going back at least to John Calvin. By virtue of this, [Paul] teaches, the Jews are the first and natural heirs of the gospel, except to the extent that by their ungratefulness they were forsaken as unworthy

John MacArthur, Israel, Calvinism, and Postmillennialism -- Part 1
