There are some that believe that Calvinist has never really studied the Bible. They believe Calvinist have only read a book or two on Calvinist doctrine, and have yet to see if it is backup with scripture. While I have yet to meet such a Calvinist, I would like to know if maybe they do exist as some think. So I would like to ask a few questions to other Calvinist, and see if this is the case.a) When you were 1st aware of the doctrines of grace, did you immediately embrace them or fight them?A1) If you fought against them, whither it be a personal battle or a outward battle, how long of a time frame before you came to embrace them? A2) Did you look to scripture as you fought the matter, or only to John Calvin? A3) Did you pray to our Lord over the matter, just wanting to know the truth? b) When you read a book by RC Sproul, John Edwards, John Piper, and other Calvinist, do you believe it only because they being Calvinist have said it? B1) Do you ever disagree with one of these men? B2) If you agree or disagree with the writers, what is the determining factor…1) They are Calvinist therefore I believe them. 2) They told a good story. 3) I checked the Bible and found what they said was the message of Scripture. c) Is there ever a time when you may question Calvinism? d) Have you ever read Arminian based books like “Beyond Calvinism and Arminiainism..By: C. Gordon Olson…or…What love is this/” by: Dave Hunt?..The works of Desiderius Erasmus…and the like? D1) If so, did you check their work with Scripture? D1a) If you checked, what did you find? e) In one short line, why are you a Calvinist? f) If you are a Calvinist pastor, do you preach on election every week? g) Have you ever been with another person that has struggled with the issue, when the “light came on” leading to their embracement of the doctrines? G1) If so, how would you describe that moment?a) Stunned b) Over-whelmed c) Crying..very emotional d) Not able to sleep at night..(just before or just after) e) All of the above and more f) Nothing happened g) other h) Could you relate to the persons feelings that just embraced the doctrines?
