Calvin on Predestination

In his book, Concerning the Eternal Predestination of God, Calvin wrote: “Since we do not know who belongs to the number of the predestined and who does not, it befits us so to feel as to wish that all be saved. So it will come about that, whoever we come across, we shall study to make him a sharer of peace…even sever rebuke will be administered like medicine, lest they should perish or cause others to perish. But it will be for God to make it effective in those whom He foreknew and predestined.”1

1. Calvin, Concerning the Eternal Predestination of God, trans by J.K.S. Reid (London, James Clarke & Co., 1961), 138.

Federal Debt at 100,000 Per Household and Rising Quickly

Most people agree that strange and confusing times are upon us economically. Here is some local Raleigh real estate market analysis on the economy from the Linnemen Letter.
Another aspect of uncharted waters is that outstanding U.S. federal debt has doubled in the last four years, resulting in a nearly $100,000 per household liability (and rising at the rate of $12,000 per year) associated with that debt. Who will buy this mounting debt, and at what rate, are questions everyone asks but for which there are no clear answers. Over the past 18 months, the Federal Reserve has been the primary purchaser of newly issued federal debt, with the private sector a net seller. Will the Fed be able and willing to purchase newly issued federal debt? This is an important question, as the Fed is artificially keeping interest rates near zero across the yield curve. But no one (including the Fed) knows what the Fed will do, because we have never before witnessed such monetary expansion by the Fed.

When Desires Are Too Passionate and Hopes Too Optimistic in Marriage

It always makes for trouble in relationships when there is an expectation of perfection. Here is a clip from a sermon stating the details of how this happens and how to address it:

Half the miseries and disquietudes, half the interruptions of conjugal peace and domestic felicity, arise from desires too ardent, and hopes too sanguine; both parties, at their first entrance into the nuptial state, especially in youth, are apt to form to themselves ideas, very inadequate and disproportioned to the condition of human life; to entertain delusive notions of a romantic and visionary paradise, where the earth is cloathed with perpetual verdure, the flowers never fade, and the fruits are immortal; but when instead of this, they begin, perhaps in a short time, to feel the thorns springing up under their feet, (more…)
