The 5 points of Calvinism are: Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irristable Grace, and Perserverance of the Saints. Over the past several months, people on BB have identified themselves as: 3-point, 4-point or 5-point Calvinists. Some claim to believe only one of two points of Calvinism. Some refer to hyper-Calvinists. Are there generally agreed upon definitions for each type of Calvinists? Do all 4-point Calvinists believe the same 4 points? If so, which one don't they believe? Do all 3-point Calvinists believe the same 3 points? If so, which two don't they believe? Same type of questions for 2 and 1 point Calvinists. Is there a pecking order of points that people don't believe? Does everyone agree on the difference between a 5-point Calvinist and a hyper-Calvinist? As I recall when these titles were used, others seemed to know which points these were. If there are different grouping, which ones generally go together? Can anybody help?
