Welcome to my web site on the discussion of the precautions one should take concerning Calvinism!

My hosting server lost my web site and I didn't have a local copy, so, thanks to twtministries.com , I am republishing my site on this new server.  TWT Ministries published my site without the scripture text links, so I will have to go through sometime and relink them to the BibleGateway.com site when I get a chance.

Calvinism -- Ten Little Caveats*

Copyright 1998 by Bob Moore


We have treated Greek ideas about God, too much like scripture.  "Ten Little Caveats" explains why Calvin's  view of God's sovereignty must not reject God's sovereign freedom to control all ultimate things notwithstanding one's indeterminate faith.

An ancient axiom, "Ecclesia semper reformanda est." (the church always needs to be reformed) is often quoted in Reformed circles to point out how the church needs to be vigilant against the sin and error that would challenge her foundational truths. Calvinism as well as Arminianism needs reformation.

Dr. John Piper says,  "Faith, more than any other human  act, glorifies God and humbles man."  "Ten Little Caveats" explains why this is true, even though Dr. Piper is opposed to the point of view presented here.

(I consider chapters 5, 6, and 9 to be the most essential)
