I posted a bit back asking if there were different types of Calvinists since some at my church find in Calvinism a strong joy, and others seem to find pickle juice to suck on in their Calvinism. My asking around seems--just my impression--that it depends on the end times view they hold. The post, amil, and historic pre mil folks seem to be the happy ones. The pickle suckers seem to be holding to a dispensational pre mil view. But within that view some are still happy, others not so much. The not so much tribe seem to have bought the idea of mid or post trib rapture. Now this is purely subjective evaluating on my part, just listening as folks discuss things and as some answer my questions when I ask. I don't even begin to know if one's end times views normally have an effect on how joyous you find your faith. But I'd sure love to listen if some of you want to discuss this!
