Personal note: I have read and listened to many of the people I will be criticizing below. I am very familiar with their ministries, positions, connections, etc. It is unfortunate that it took … Continue reading Big “Calvinism,” or “Calvinism, Inc.”
Earlier this year I wrote about the Shepherds Conference, an annual event hosted by John Macarthur's Grace Community Church.
