Calvinism -- Ten Little Caveats*
by Bob MooreCopyright 1998
We have treated Greek ideas about God, too much like scripture. "Ten Little Caviats" 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)
* Caveat: a warning or explanation to prevent misinterpretation.
