Many people don't know this, but the theology I have is actually the theology the early church had. It is the theology from which the New Testament was written. It is the theology the Old Testament writers had in mind. In fact, my theology from the bottom up is the THE theology. It is the most correct, it is absolutely correct, and anyone who believes differently than me has things wrong.
I mean this because we ALL think this. If we don't think this then we should change our theology. If we thought our beliefs were wrong we wouldn't believe them. That is the nature of the beast.
I'm amused that everyone doesn't recognize this.
I write this in response to an article I recently read. Actually I read an article by Nick Norelli titled "What I like about calvinism" and then a response to that article by one Geoff Smith of the same title.
Both showed a weakness of Calvinism being "Calvinism typically assumes it is correct from the get go and that traditional reformed theology was on the minds of the NT authors all the time no matter what they wrote about."
Yea... but come on guys. I don't want to be mean about this and I'm no Calvinist myself, but this is hardly an argument.
