Calvinism and other such very interesting matters in life...
For those of you who are interested in theology (and who isn't in reality for we all believe in something, like it or not) here is something I discovered recently...A 7 Point Calvinist! Read about it here: http://thoughtsactions.wordpress.com/2007/09/21/piper-a-7-point-calvinist/
If you are unsure of what a Calvinist is in the first place then look here
This little booklet ( Where is God when things go Wrong by John Blanchard) explains some of the practical implications which we often misunderstand about these issues. It is written exceptionally well - a must read! Go on, go and buy it!
And last but not least is the 1 pointer, who is none other than the reputable J I Packer himself! See http://donaldkim.wordpress.com/2008/10/17/ji-packer-one-point-calvinism/
(Please don't misunderstand and think that a Calvinist is a Hyper Calvinist! The two are not the same! See http://www.spurgeon.org/~phil/articles/hypercal.htm )
