Is Calvinism Good for the Church?

2010 Ligonier Conference


In this 57-minute session from the 2010 Ligonier Conference, Burk Parsons, co-pastor of Saint Andrew’s Chapel in Florida and editor of Tabletalk magazine, explores the resurgence of Calvinism. While many question whether the “young, restless, and reformed” generation is just a passing fad, Parsons reminds believers that Calvinism is not a badge we wear, but a gospel in which we clothe ourselves. True, biblical Calvinism that champions Jesus is good for the church.

We need a theology that comes from Scripture, not from our own minds. Any true theology will serve to make us increasingly humble, gentle, and loving, and will result in the adoration of God.
