But like everything else with Calvinism, what they mean is that man has no part whatsoever in responding to the Gospel. After all, the alternative is to leave Catholics in the positive of trying to prove a universal negative in the face of “maybe their writings disappeared” or “maybe they lived in the mountains!” There’s no humanly possible way to demonstrably prove what every Christian ever believed, but all the available records point in one direction. Are ministers men through whom Christ speaks?

This is much like the previous verses in James which teach that trials and testing produce endurance. Arminius was not only tolerant towards Calvin and others, but would highly endorse the writings of Calvin: "I exhort them to read the commentaries of Calvin, on whom I bestow higher praise than Helmichius (a Dutch theologian) ever did, as he confessed to me himself.

The Calvinists believe that there is no cooperation of the man�s will with the divine power. Anyone who has attended an Orthodox service can speak of the holistic worship: incense, icons, vestments, chants, and prostrations. One might object that all this no longer existed in Catholicism or that it existed only formally or indirectly. He is pursuing Jesus and his kingdom in a way I am all too unfamiliar with but from which I have so so much to learn.

Due to the venue change, live streaming of the service will not be available. Weber finds the answer in Calvinism and the Protestant ethic. We are eager for his return, but do not wait until then to recognize Jesus Christ as King and Lord of all. For the Puritan God demands "rational labour in a calling." (Protestant, p. 162). We have the freedom to have a relationship with Him, and to bring our families to His feet to hear of His love to us each week. Bible canon contains 73 books including all seven books in the Septuagint canon.

Leithart’s peculiar principles, which seems an extremely unlikely event. Maybe not yet, but I’m sure it will in a few years. He spoke about paradox and the nature of truth in ways I had not been exposed to and I understood for the first time, why I was uncomfortable with the very conservative Christians who believed that they heard the voice of Jesus in everything in In 1989 I did storytelling at an regional event in PA. John Armstrong, “ministerial-ecumenist,” has expressed such a position very clearly here.

To say that the Church perished sometime after the first five or six centuries as the Protestant reformers say is to imply nothing else than our predecessors for nearly 1000 years before the reformation are damned, for outside of the true Church there is no salvation. But Jason Stellman thinks that the obsession with our physical origins, though understandable, is perhaps theologically off-kilter. Most are either four or five point Calvinists.

This one central principle of reformed thinking has several flow-on implications: Reformed thinkers, and so faithful Reformed Churches, take God for real. More careful analysis of Weber’s claims, however, soon reveals them as less-than-adequate.
