Calvinist bedtime reading?  Or just a paranoid Turk with poor spelling?

  1. The first review on Amazon is hilarious!!
    “We bought this for our three boys, Beza, Calvin, and Van Till! They loved every minute of this book! Buying this book will root my children in a holy fear of the Arminian heresy!!! The joy they got out of this book made me almost as happy as when little Calvin started quoting the Institutes, little Van Till argued for the existence of God by assuming He existed, and little Beza threw rocks at that Methodist kid in his class! I know that God has predestined them to great things!!! I am so proud of my three little supralapsarians!!!”

    • Hahahahahahahahahahaha . . . I really needed that this morning. I haven’t read the reviews because this nonsensical book is so very ridiculous. How threatened some Calvinists are with opposing theological worldviews. That is a sign, by the way, of insecurity. But who can blame them? They have much about which to be insecure (i.e., their unconditional election and perseverance).

  2. Looks a Japanese cartoon rip off.

    I thought it was a spoof, the I read some really strange, LONG comments from Calvinist reviewers. It is a spoof, right?

    PS I came here from Sounds of Thunder blog.

    • Hi Anthea, thanks for stopping by. I haven’t read the book myself, but am pretty sure it is NOT a spoof. :( It’s written by a Calvinist pastor.

        Wow! Some people are going to get one big surprise when they get to heaven. i hear that there are all sorts of undesriables in there. The author seems to have a very limited idea of which Chistians are acceptable. Thankfully, God’s standards are way lower than his.

    typo “then I read”

  5. Well, who is up for writing the Arminian response? Group project?

    • I think we’re secure enough in our theology that we don’t need to respond to that kind of thing. :) On the other hand, a nice satire/spoof of it would be cool. Maybe inspiration will strike.
