I have a good Calvinist friend, an elder in my church, whom I respect and we have good back and forths on these issues involving TULIP. He doesn't believe crazy things like you see here from Calvinist on the BB. He made the comment that this reformed theology needs to be wiped out, and said he believed it was dying out. I never studied the differences among Calvinist, I just always debated TULIP and of course these things which come up such as we have seen over the past few months. I haven't had a chance to get together with him lately, or I would ask him about it. So my question is, what is this reformed theology? Yeah I know I can look up some sort of written definition, but it is always more understandable if one who is actually involved in Calvinism can explain the differences.
