Saying What You Believe Is Clearer Than Saying “Calvinist”

John Piper had a really helpful post on this topic. He said that “using a label for what you believe is not nearly as helpful as telling people what you actually believe. So forget the label, if it helps, and tell them clearly, without evasion or ambiguity, what you believe about salvation.”

Closely related to this topic, Timothy George’s new book, Amazing Grace deals with what has been coined as the “Calvinism controversy.” It was originally written to address the growing concern in the SBC about conflicting views on the “doctrines of grace.” As incredible as grace is, the topic provokes some of the most heated disagreements in the history of the Christian church. George felt that “a clear, simple exposition of what are known as the doctrines of grace might shed more light than heat on this growing dispute.”

Amazing Grace is an effort to help articulate what we believe and to promote understanding and unity within the church as we seek to know the God of the Bible. George writes, “God’s grace should provoke wonder and worship among all God’s children.”
