on what words and phrases not to use when dealing with members from the other theological party? I'll start with some terms that I don't think aids in accurate communication. I am just speaking for myself --maybe some other Calvinists don't have a problem with the following: Limited atonement --No, Particular Redemption, or Specific Atonement would be better. Irresistable grace -- No, Effectual calling -please Calvies -- No, Calvinists or Dortians or Holders of the Doctrines of Sovereign Grace. Worship of John Calvin. I am sick and tired of that phrase. It is repulsive to the core. I admire and respect him, but please I have given my allegiance to Christ alone. Please add some more Calvinists. And you non-Calvinists can add some terms as well. It's a two-way street. I know I have used the term "blasphemous" a number of times when I thought it was deserved. That might be a hard one to avoid. I don't think I have ever used the word, or a form of the word "idol" when dealing with a BB member who was of a different theological stripe. I want all of use to try and eliminate that word in discussions. It's in the rules that we should not use the term "free-willies" and I think most of us have respected that. Okay, I'd like some constructive feedback. Is that possible?
