"An arrogant Calvinist is a contradiction of terms."

Dr. Tipton, class lecture on Feb 11.

Would that we all take that to heart! "Calvinism alone strikes the last blow to that native autonomy that is a function of the fall." In other words, Calvinism alone recognizes us for the dirty, rotten sinners that we are -- and who could be arrogant when we truly recognize how dependent we are upon God's grace.

And yet ... the Lord has so much work still to do in our hearts.
