    I was wondering what we "Calvinists" should call ourselves if (like me), we've never read Calvin's Institutes. I've read Luther's Bondage of the Will (a few times, actually). I agree with what Luther says in that book, so I'd call myself a Lutheran. Unfortunately, that label is already taken and I don't agree with Lutheran doctrines.

    I have read some A.W. Pink, and I agree with him. If you have, too, then maybe we should call ourselves "Pinkies". What do you think?

    [Note: This is a joke. This is only a joke. If this had been a serious post you would have been instructed to tune into your local Serious Post station for updates. We now return you to your regularly scheduled threads.]

    Instead of "pinkies" it should be "all thumbs" the way the Gospel is clumsily presented. :D

    I think that would be true with all concerned (on both sides of the fences)!

    Great, now you've done it. From now on I'm going to think of you as a naked pink newborn mouse.

    I'd rather just read the Bible and be called a Christian. [​IMG]

    I get a kick out of the dear folks that want to avoid association with John Calvin. I went through that phase myself for a while. So it's:

    Sovereigntist
    Predestinarian
    Determinist
    Sovereign Grace Believer
    ANYTHING BUT CALVINIST!

    Can you think of some other Calvin-avoiding labels?

    Or, "Tulipist!" ;)

    How about simply call ourselves, "biblisists"?

    You do like to complicate things, don't you?

    Let's call the roll:

    Dagg(ist)
    Gill(ist)
    Spurgeon(ist)
    Boyce(ist)
    Strong(ist)(for the 4 pointer heretic) [​IMG]

    Any of those ring true?

    Thanks Joseph but I was thinking of baptist calvinists, er, I mean, sovereigntist. Sproul is either reformed or presby. But what a great theologian anyway!
