At the heart of the debate on grace is the detailed process of how conversion occurs.
Perhaps the most divisive of topics in the debate: Who exactly did Christ die for?
Do we choose God or does God choose us?
Are we sinners because we sin or do we sin because we are sinners?
So what exactly is Calvinism and Arminianism? Let’s do a very quick and brief peek at history.
A few weeks ago, I was asked by a friend of mine if I was willing to lead a discussion in our church dgroup. I didn’t really have a good reason to say no, as this was something I had done before. What was interesting this time around was that he asked me to discuss Calvinism and Arminianism.
My main problem with this article is that the author makes no distinction between her stronger and weaker reasons, and simply presents ten songs we shouldn’t sing as though they are equally faulty. There is a significant difference between a song that is theologically incorrect, to that of one that is theologically lacking, and again to that of one which can cause discomfort to certain people. Bundling all these reasons as sufficient basis to tell someone not to sing those songs feels quite lacking.
But what exactly were the criticisms to each song, and are those reasonable?
