Now I'll continue what we started a while back. That time, we looked generally at some knee-jerk Calvinist reaction to using the (Biblical) language of choice or decision.
This time, we entertain a still more focused question.
What do you mean by "decisionism" or "decisionalism"? What's so bad about it? What's Biblier?
Calvinists give other Christians the impression that we're downplaying the need for being born again, the need for a radical and decisive change. Many Christians think that we pray to be born again, perhaps using the words of Psalm 51:10 ("Create in me a clean heart, O God, and renew a right spirit within me"). Or they think that we believe in God, and are then born again.
So put it plain, simple, and Bibley.
Two special rules for this thread. Decide to obey them, or I'll decide for you:
- Strict two-hundred-word limit on all comments. Violate that, and I'll delete, and leave the person's name dangling in the wind, as a grim warning to wordy fellow-travelers.
- In-house discussion; Calvinists only.
