I am curious to know what nationality those on the BB are. Personally, I am a non-japanese. I would assume that a vast majority of you on here are also just like me, non-japanese. So what does that tell you? Not really much at all. The same with the "Non-Cal" distinction which tells us nothing. For some I think anti-calvinists would be a better term. But my point is that we need to give a defense of our own faith by what we proclaim. We are so offended by labels that we often merely attack other systems of theology while never giving a clear presentation of what we believe. So, please, next time you are tempted to use the term "non-cal" please remember the list of people that fall into that category: Atheists Hindus Mormons Pelagians Arians Catholics Charismatics Pentacostals Muslims pagans Unitarians Arminians Methodists Free will Baptists The list could go on an on. This term tells us nothing about what you actually DO believe, only what you DON'T believe. Perhaps I am being picky here but I think we need to be able to explain what we do believe about something if we are going to stand against something.
