Footnote numbers[edit]

The four footnote reference numbers need to be re-referenced and re-sequenced. They do not make sense as they stand here.

Format changed so that they will always be in sequence. --Awinger48 11:34, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

Cleanup[edit]

The article needs to be beefed up. It should include a history section, beliefs, variations, etc. There should be fewer block quotes if possible. --Flex 19:33, 1 May 2006 (UTC)

The block quote by Harry VanDyke has been deleted. The blog that was linked to it is no longer in existence. The quote given is nowhere else on the internet except in mirror web sites of this Wikipedia entry. Open for disucssion if needed :-) --Awinger48 00:08, 15 September 2006 (UTC)

What is Neo-Calvinism?[edit]

I read this article and the section in Calvinism, but I don't understand what Neo-Calvinism as opposed to Calvinism. Perhaps a section on the differences between the two would be helpful? Mgroop 20:46, 29 September 2006 (UTC)

Many of the doctrines in Neo-Calvinism are not unique from Calvinism. They rather have new a emphasis on how one relates to the world, which justifies a new title. Neo-calvinists will pursue culture, arts, sciences, government, and progress with equal calling as evangelism because of God's grace to the world through these things. Calvinists don't necessarily believe in the cultural mandate, sphere sovereignty, and universal redemption of creation (as the cheif end) of christ's death. Newchasm 06:07, 30 April 2007 (UTC)

External Link Addition[edit]

After attempting to link to the site "The Kuyperian: Information About Neocalvinism" I received the following message:

"We invite everyone to contribute constructively to the encyclopedia. However, the external links you added to the page Neo-Calvinism do not comply with our guidelines for external links. Wikipedia is not a mere directory of links; nor should it be used for advertising or promotion. Since Wikipedia uses nofollow tags, external links do not alter search engine rankings. If you feel the link should be added to the article, then please discuss it on the article's talk page before reinserting it.

MER-C is under the mistaken impression that http://kuyperian.blogspot.com is some kind of commercial site? I am reposting the link. The Kuyperian is a resource site containing a wealth of information about neocalvinism by neocalvinist authors focusing on the neocalvinist work of Abraham Kuyper.


I can see no reason why the link shouldn't be included - it contains much important information. SteveBish 22:04, 14 July 2007 (UTC)

Hi Steve. Basically, all blogs are frowned upon in Wikipedia. But I agree with you, and am happy for the link to be there. StAnselm 12:20, 15 July 2007 (UTC)

Perez, Jones and Sin Mancha Transworld[edit]

Do Jorge Armando Pérez, R. Tudur Jones and Sin Mancha Transworkd really belong here? --SteveBish 07:58, 26 October 2006 (UTC)

What is Neo-Calvinism?[edit]

I'm reading the article and understanding not one iot. Obviously it's a little of this and of that, but how does it relate to Paleo-Calvinism, more specifically Paleo-Calvinism in relation to Arminianism and in relation to Hyper-Calvinism. To what problems is it a solution, and what solutions does it propone? ... said: Rursus (bork²) 20:22, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Merge discussion[edit]

Middle orthodoxy has been a stub for some time now, and the information found there could be incorporated into this article. To facilitate development of both pages, and provide context for the source page, I recommend a merge. --JFHutson (talk) 14:56, 5 December 2012 (UTC)
