    Do you HAVE to subscribe to Covenant, as contrasted to Dispy theology, in order to be a 'real" calvinist than?

    no. Most would say that MacArthur is a Calvinist and he's not covenant.

    thanks...

    Would there than be a distinction between say 'reformed' calvinists, who are strictly Covenant and say 'baptist" who tend to be dispy?

    Both would adhere to TULIP, all 5 points though?

    MacArthur has stated at his Shepherd's Conference that he believes you cannot be premilennial/dispensational and not Calvinistic, nor can you be Calvinistic and not dispensational or premilennial. Used strong language in the process. I'll post the link when I get time.

    No. I'm a calvinist and I lean more dispy.

    Funny thing. I am not a calvinist, and I believe that the Chruch is Israel being referenced in the NT.
