In his book Humble Calvinism, pastor and author J.A. Medders writes:

"Many of us who love to love the “doctrines of grace” have not grown in showing grace. We have not become more gracious, kind, tender, and compassionate. And that can only mean one thing: we actually don’t know the doctrines of grace. Sure, we know the points and can rehearse the arguments ...But an arrogant and argumentative Calvinist is just a Pharisee with a fresh coat of paint."

But it doesn't have to be this way. The term "humble Calvinism" should not be an oxymoron.

On this episode, we discuss why a right understanding of Calvinism should cause us to be gracious, loving, and humble towards others.

On This Episode We’ll Discuss:

  • What Calvinism is and why a "humble Calvinist" seems like an oxymoron to many
  • Why "cage-stage" Calvinism is such a prevalent issue
  • Some keys to help us graciously hold to the Doctrines of Grace
  • How we can be zealous for the truth and be humble and gracious towards others
