My "to do" list for Controversial Calvinism

Just to let you who are interested know what I am working on (and that I AM working), I wanted to show you some of the projects I'm working on for the blog.

By popular demand, I am working on an essay that combines my thoughts on the Heshusius question into one article. I will make a blog entry with a link to a pdf article for your reading pleasure. The high Calvinists have badly misinterpreted that Heshusius quote, and this article will have all my objections in one place.

I also plan to continue my critique of Roger Nicole's article on Calvin's view of the atonement. I want to make this a thorough critique, hopefully with links to good source material. This will probably take me the next year or so -- it will be small, digestible bites, though. All very interesting.

In the immediate future (this week) I plan to answer the challenge regarding Calvin's view of 1Timothy 2:4 posted in a comment to my universal grace blog post. Look for that soon.

Completely unrelated to theology, I also hope to have a video of my son's performance at the Bob Jones University music camp, just concluded. Youtube is a beautiful thing. (Who is that little kid playing Scriabin?) :-)

I like when you start your paragraph about your son at BJU..."completely unrelated to theology". I hope they don't make up a new rule after he is done there. Maybe something such as "Sudents May Not Gather Together and Jam With Their Instruments".
Did you happen to read the Reformation21 blog about Rick Phillips enrolling his children in the BJU grammar school?
Blessing to you. I am glad you are "working".

I was actually very pleased with BJU. 30-some years later, it seems very much like Cedarville was in the 70's. It was a LOT better than I expected. I'm trying to keep an open mind about the place. And my son liked it, which was very important to me.

I just read Rick Phillips's post, and I agree with every word of it.
