Lin: " There is a darkness to Calvinism that is inexplicable. I saw it in reading about Calvin and others. I could discuss what I saw for days on end. It is chilling. Now, I am running into people who were totally immersed in it a few years back that are now athiests! "
I really think she means New Calvinists, because of these statements:
"I highly recommend George Marsden's bio of Edwards"
"Marsden records the suicides that occured with Edward's Awakening and they are bizarre."
But I'd really like for her to clarify things herself.
I only ask because I see New Calvinism as a very troubling force in Christianity. And I see New Calvinism creeping into my own church. If there really is a darkness about it, I want to understand it and combat it, somehow.
