Calvin College's New President Talks Budget Pressures, Diversity, and the Biggest Theological Issue Today

What's the most significant theological challenge currently facing Calvin?

The biggest issue is, what does it mean to be obedient to Christ? Before any specific issue is really the posture of the heart toward Christ, and how we encourage a spirit of obedience among 18-year-olds who perhaps up until this point, their experience of faith has been youth group.

All of the language of serious, committed faith is obedience language—take up the cross and follow. It's the cost of discipleship. It's not pretty stuff that you can make nice. It's pretty rugged stuff, but that's the gospel. Theologically, how do we convey that truth in a graceful way and not water it down? Then that has implications for all the other issues.

Of course every Christian college president is worried about this, but homosexuality is a very real issue for campuses. We have gay and lesbian students here. I have met with them. ...

This Roman Catholic troll thinks he can love the unseen elect, but continue to hate those who are already proving their election by their faith in Christ and their love of apostolic doctrine! What idiocy!

Luke 6:43 For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.
I have never heard anyone of this message board say they hated the elect or that they hate those who are in the RCC. We all have said we hate the RCC's theology because it is from Satan. They are simply modern day Pharisees.

Now just to correct your comment, I don't hate Catholics, Mormons or Muslims and I'm sure Dorcas feels the same way. She has family and so do I that are in the RCC. Surely even you must understand that she doesn't hate her family. We love them and that is why we tell them to come out from them. Neither of us want to see them undergo God's wrath. I don't want you to undergo His wrath either! I pray for you on a regular basis.

Luke 6:43 For a good tree bringeth not forth corrupt fruit; neither doth a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit.

It just occured to me why you and Frank might not be allowed to attend a RCC Church. Its because their prayer was answered

Matthew 6:13 .. but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.

Like you, I was raised in the RCC and I truly believe they are in fact Satan's church because they have and are deceiving the most people. You hang in there.

And once again, well said regarding Christ our Substitute! It is indeed finished and by one offering He has perfected forever those who are being sanctified. (paraphrase)

But SteveR, Dorcas is a genuine sister in Christ, born again from above. Since that is true, why would you associate her in any way with silly women laden with sins, led away with divers lusts?

For by one offering she has been perfected forever.

Sorry Dorcas to keep you in the spotlight, but it really annoys me that he is associating you with the lost. Since you are not going to defend yourself, and I understand that decision, I will do it for you if you don't mind. If that bothers you in any way, please let me know and I will "lovingly and understandably" stop.

Why do I think that this character is the same? Well, its the same rhetoric, the same lies, the same signature (attack those seen as the most vulnerable e.g. Dorcas) etc.
The man's a possessed menace. I am almost tempted to think that every moniker promoting the RCC cause (other than JY) is this single individual spewing more RCC apologetics.

I believe TLC was plain mental!
Well, you are certainly more knowledgable about this Schwarb character and SteveR. You know one time SteveR posted something in a very unusual manner that lent itself to demonic possession. He was either trying to be cute or .... I can find it for you if you want.

Yes, it was a shame how he treated Dorcas. I believe her attitude is correct and she should simply ignore him completely. I don't mind him attacking me, but not one of our "genuine" sisters in Christ; especially without cause. It is even harder for a woman to be a believer in Christ and follow Him, then a male; therefore she has been a great encouragement to me and others.

Schwarb is an apostate who went to a reformed seminary and then turned Roman Catholic. He posted here under his own name for a while but once people cottoned onto the fact that this troll was trying to proselytize the unwary to the Roman Catholic cause, he started using various monikers like "not your pope" etc.

Hello Frank, thanks for your comment.
Both JY and SteveR (aka Schwarb etc) are pernicious characters as they are out to deceive the unwary. Not sure out of the two who is the worse. At the moment I am thinking the Jesuit SteveR, only because he has obviously had some sort of theological education, as woefully inadequate as it evidently is, and with his ignorant and blinded minded he is out to make disciples for the Whore church. Virtually everything he posts on here is a shameless lie. He is indeed a son of perdition, probably on this board at the instigation of the Roman Pontiff. Not that he is doing a good job because he obviously flunked Jesuit college and that's why he keeps making school boy errors!
You may in fact be correct.
But I tend to think that if SteveR had any RC theological training then he would at least sometimes defend their doctrine, but he "never" has. But, since he is "familiar" with scripture, I have always thought he was part of the Emergent Church movement. I'll bet I am right. Who is this Schwarb character and why do you think he and SteveR are the same.

You can add Tony (TLC)who I am sure was also a phoney to make evangelicals look stupid.

Probably the same hand works more than one romanist puppet?

As I said you wouldn't understand any of this because you have no spiritual life. You're as dead as a Dodo. A self proclaimed logician but dead as a Dodo all the same.

I didn't say that, John. Read again:

"A Catholic Church attender can't be a Christian unless they repent of attending a gospel-denying church."
