Calvinism/Reformed Theology is something of great interest to me. I have been reading scripture, books on both sides of the fence and I have even attended conferences on the topic. I must admitt that it is difficult for me to admitt that I am reformed because that seems to be a dirty word in many circles. Some pastors will even refuse to associate with a person who takes this theological position. In many of things I have heard and read many claim to be 4 point calvinist. At one conference DR. Davind Allan from SWTBS made huge claims that many of the big name Calvinsist from old where really only 4-pointers. The point they don't support is Limited Atonment. My question is this: Is it possible to only be a 4 pointer? Wouldn't ones belief in Total Depravity (the T in TULIP) demand that one believe in the "L"? If man is totally incapable of choosing to be saved then wouldn't it stand to reasont that it is God doing the choosing? I am not trying to pick a fight here. I simply want to hear from you guys. Thanks!!
