MUST READ ARTICLE: Why I am a Calvinist

Here's a link to a short but power-packed article from Kevin DeYoung, entitled "Why I am a Calvinist."

Here's an excerpt:

"The influence of Calvinism is growing because its God is transcendent and its theology is true. In a day when “be better” moralism passes for preaching, self-help banality passes for counseling, and “Jesus is my boyfriend” music passes for worship in some churches, more and more people are finding comfort in a God who is anything but comfortable. The paradox of Calvinism is that we feel better by feeling worse about ourselves, we do more for God by seeing how He’s done everything for us, and we give love away more freely when we discover that we have been saved by free grace."
