Calvinism is new again a.k.a. people are Biblical again

“And I have my own private opinion, that there is no such thing as preaching Christ and him crucified, unless you preach what now-a-days is called Calvinism. I have my own ideas, and those I always state boldly. It is a nickname to call it Calvinism. Calvinism is the gospel, and nothing else.” Charles Spurgeon

There is a teacher at a local High School, both of which will remain nameless, that recently told some of kids our church that “No one really believes in Calvinism anymore.”  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Below are a few articles that speak to the renewal of what is called “New Calvinism”.  It is not in fact “new”, it’s as old as Habakkuk’s conversation with God, older actually.  And, it’s not just a few wackos that believe it.
