Does anyone else here find it strange that Calvinist spend so much time and effort avoiding the honest conclusions of their own TULIP? If TULIP is the Gospel, the Calvinist have no other choice but to believe those who do not believe it is the Gospel are following a false gospel and thus must be unsaved. But they squirm and struggle with accepting the reality of their own belief system. And if it's not the Gospel, then what is it?? I don't think a Calvinist could explain what it is apart from believing it is the very Gospel of God, Divine Revelation, when God Himself via the Holy Spirit causes them to see that it is indeed the Gospel. To do so would under-mind the very doctrine they believe in. They have no choice but to believe it is the very Gospel because the teaching of the doctrine itself declares that one cannot believe anything apart from God making them believe it. The Calvinist is stuck is he not? Can a Calvinist declare TULIP is not the Gospel? Can a Calvinist declare TULIP does not come from any Divine revelation? Again, if TULIP is not the Gospel, then what is it? According to a Calvinist that is, only a Calvinist can answer this question. Is it the Gospel, or is it something else, and if so what is it? And if it is the Gospel, how can one reject TULIP and still be saved?
