Anonymous asked: Have you always accepted the thoughts of Calvinism? I am having a hard time grasping and accepting some of the points. If you haven't always accepted Calvinism, how did you come to accepting them? Do you have any books you would recommend to read to further my knowledge of Calvinism? Do you still question or struggle with any of those five points?
When I first came upon these doctrines I hated them. I remember mocking and looking down on those who held these convictions. However, it was when I started reading the word more diligently and more seriously I had no choice but to see the truth in what these great doctrines rightly point out. It was solid preaching by men like John MacArthur, John Piper, and David Platt who gave me a high view of God and of his holiness and grace. It was a solid group of wonderful friends who had also wrestled through these things and met to read the word openly and honestly. I still have questions, and I still wrestle through some of these great doctrines, but I see them plainly and explicitly in scripture. These doctrines that once made me bitter and uneasy have now become my greatest source of comfort.
As far as books on the subject I would recommend 2:
What is Reformed Theology - R.C. Sproul
For Calvinism - Michael Horton
I would also take time to read through John Piper’s “What We Believe about the 5 Points of Calvinism” found here..
as well as Charles Spurgeon’s “A Defense of Calvinism”
Love the original by The Darkness, but this makes me feel good.
HOLY HECK. Listen.
