    Our theology is becoming more biblical. Yes!

    I’m glad that people aren’t ignoring that little word “predestination” in the Bible any more, however, this Calvinistic movement in the church was expected by me. This is the way the church is. There are waves of support for various movements across the decades. Go back a little ways, and you would find that most of the church prescribed to the beliefs of amillenialism. The post-Left Behind church doesn’t even know what amillenialism is and even laughs at the idea of it.

    The postmodern movement is telling us that we all have complete control over our own existence, while the church’s response to that is to go in the opposite direction and say that God is sovereign.

    What I’m saying is that there are a number of explanations for it, and the bottom line is that I have expected this for quite some time. While it’s good that people are getting what I think is more biblical teaching, I don’t think it’s something that is going to stick forever.
