Today while driving to a missions conference in North Carolina I heard a radio program by Dr. Michael Brown
, who I had never heard before.
Dr. Brown, who described himself as a "charismatic" and a former Calvinist, spent the first part of the radio program describing three things that he appreciates about Calvinism, even though he disagrees with some Calvinistic doctrines; the three things mentioned by Brown were:
- Calvinism emphasizes that we should give all glory to God and none to Man.
- Calvinism emphasizes that God is King over all.
- Calvinism tends to protect those who embrace it from a wide array of doctrinal abnormalities.
My prayer is that everyone known as a "Calvinist" will truly exemplify these characteristics that are appreciated by Dr. Brown.
