Haven't seen one of these yet, thought I'd make one. Let us discuss Reformed Christianity, the Reformed leaders (Zwingli, Calvin, Knox, etc.), various Reformed confessions (Helvetic Confessions, Westminster, etc.), and of course our central text the Holy Bible which contains the word of God and which we look to alone for doctrine.

The problem with reformed theology is that you can take any selection of random verses from the bible and make them seem to support anything

Reformers think God doesn't save everyone because he doesn't want to save everyone, and only wants to save the elect? Well 2 Peter 3:9 directly contradicts that

>The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.

so does 1 Timothy 2:4

>[God] desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

not to mention the most important:

John 3:16

God so loved *the world* that he have his only begotten son so that *whomever* believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life

who desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth.

There's also this BTFO of the 5 points of calvinism

Feels good to be better than all the reprobates of the world because God arbitrarily chose me, am I right my calvinist bros?

Everyone else should just kill themselves tbh lmao

Pride is a sin, anon. As is stated in article 15 of the Canons of Dort:

>In no way, however, are we to pride ourselves as better than they, as though we had distinguished ourselves from them.

No one deserves to be saved and you shouldn't act like you're superior if you are.

Also, today's the 510th anniversary of John Calvin's birth.

Thank God for Calvin, even if I don't affirm all his doctrines he was a hero

Calvin was trash, all university professors are trash, Socrates and Aristophanes were right about taking money for teaching.


"Not by works, lest any man should boast" – St. Paul in the NT

The problem with Calvin is he adds trash arguments that contradict the NT. Read the NT before reading any academic opinion about the NT. If it contradicts the NT, it's wrong by definition. Jesus said he wanted everyone saved and St. Paul said salvation is available to everyone.

Amen, brother, we are not saved by works but by grace through faith.

But it seems to me you haven't told us what of Calvin's theology that you differ with.

Could you give us a specific point or points so we can discuss further?

What's the CRC like, anon?

I'm only familiar with Presbyterians and Reformed Baptists.

d87666  No.8103


Ah, sorry I'm not in an actual CRC. I just want to use the flag because it's the closest thing to "I'm Reformed" that's available. I miss the Calvinist Tulip flag.

678e5f  No.8130


Not to worry, brother.

I'm partial to the burning bush flag used by old presbyterians, myself

2c0f02  No.8136


So where do you go to church?

d87666  No.8151


Reformed Baptist in GA, technically a part of the SBC, but it's not our main identity.

2c0f02  No.8152


What do you mean "not our main identity"

678e5f  No.8163


I think he means that the SBC itself isn't reformed in theology, but gives room for individual churches to be.

d87666  No.8175


This >>8163, plus there's plenty of Southern Baptist churches that pride themselves in being Southern Baptist.

2c0f02  No.8178


If you are a member of an SBC church, you are a southern baptist. That is not at all incompatible with being a calvinist.

CRC practices infant baptism. They are presbyterian.

59483d  No.8199


>CRC practices infant baptism


678e5f  No.8209



Let's not turn this thread into an argument over baptismal practices.

Plenty of non-elect undergo baptism, whether fully grown or still infants.

Rather, let me pose this question to all the reformed brethren on here:

What's your favorite passage of scripture and who in the history of the church is your favorite theologian?

59483d  No.8210


>What's your favorite passage of scripture

The great crescendo of Romans 8:31-39, with Isaiah 44:10-20 as a close second because it's such a masterful rhetorical flourish.

>who in the history of the church is your favorite theologian?

(Assuming you mean extra biblical theologians) Francis Turretin

678e5f  No.8417

A blessed Lord's day to you all, brethren.

How was church today?


Oh yeah, those passages are wonderful.

>Francis Turretin

I'm eager to look into his writings, how accessible are they?
