Antinomianism and Reformation Confessions

In the previous post I offered a very brief survey of some controversies, pointing out that while there have been some true-blue antinomians, the charge is often made by those tilting in a more neonomian direction against faithful, apostolic, evangelical preaching. For example, in spite of the fact that Lutheran and Reformed churches have gone […]

For Calvinism–Conversations

With the release of Mike Horton’s newest book For Calvinism conversations are beginning to take place. The first is with Westminster Seminary’s Office Hours podcast where Mike discusses the book and why he wrote it. There is another conversation this coming Saturday at Biola University where Mike will be having a conversation with Roger Olson […]

Part 2 of Tchividjian’s Interview

Tullian Tchividjian is conducting a four part interview with Mike Horton on the distinction between justification and sanctification and the relationship of the law to the gospel. Part one is here. Part two is now available here. Here’s a preview: Mike, what are the three uses of the law? Reformed theology embraces these “three uses”: […]

Todd Billings on the New Calvinism

Todd Billings, professor of Reformed Theology at Western Theological Seminary, recently wrote an article explaining the New Calvinism for Christian Century.  Prof. Billing, featured in the March/April 2009 issue of Modern Reformation, argues that a significant danger to the theological recovery sought by the New Calvinists is the less than accurate and inadequate way of […]

Mega-disappointment and Ordinary Means

Carl Trueman’s newest post at Reformation21 gives great insight into the “Young, Restless, and Reformed” movement that is so widely discussed around the blogosphere and conference circuit.  His penultimate paragraph should be required reading for every church leader in the land: Finally, I worry that a movement built on megachurches, megaconferences, and megaleaders, does the […]
