Things your grandmother should have told you.
Oh my....Dear Hubby and I laughed over that on the news the other night. Hmmm, explains some things, doesn't it?? He's the elected, so who cares WHAT he does!!!
That's really funny. But, I must say, folks have been misunderstanding Calvinism for a long time. I don't know all of what he's said, and couldn't watch the clip because my computer's on the fritz, but he probably just uses the word Calvinist interchangeably with Puritan (also laughable) in implying he has a Puritan work ethic. There are also those who misunderstand Calvinism to mean if they are of the elect, then...well,they're of the elect and they can't do anything about it, sort of like fatalism. We knew a fellow once who used that line of reasoning to justify leaving his wife for another woman. I seriously doubt, though, that he's thought it that far through.
Words simply fail.
I couldn't believe it either! I just now picking myself up off of the floor!
