Elisabeth Elliot and Calvinism

Jesse Martin inspired me to read after he shared at our staff meeting this past week. So, today I had some free time and I thought that there was no better time then the present. Curtis and I are starting a diet together as soon as he gets back from L.A. so I thought that a book on displine would be a great starter for me. I picked up Elisabeth Elliot’s “Discipline; A Glad Surrender” I got a chapter or two into it and thought to myself, “This is kind of weird, she is refering alot to free will. So, I decided to scam through the upcoming chapters hoping to find a chapter refuting the first chapter. I stumbled on the chapter entitled “A Sovereign God and Free Will” I was horrified to read on and discover that she is not a Calvinist. In fact I was so upset that I called Mo to make sure that I was understanding her rightly. Mo said “Oh yeah, most definity”! So, that was pretty disapointing but on the flip side if it wasn’t for Sean’s messages on Calvinism I definitly would not have picked up on it so quickley. Thank you Sean!-**************************

  1. You are very welcome. Sorry about the EE disappointment, though I’m even more sorry that most evangelical books out there are free willing. But thankfully God has preserved at least a remnant who love and praise the doctrines of His sovereign grace.
