I received an email recently containing one simple request: “Explain Calvinism.” I typed about a paragraph and a half in reply before thinking to myself, “Self, this is stupid.

"Calvinism would not be badly defined, indeed, as the tendency which is determined to do justice to the immediately supernatural, as in the first, so also in the second creation." -B. B. Warfield, Calvin and Calvinism (1932; New York: Oxford University Press, Reprinted 2003; Grand Rapids: Baker Books), 359.
