    What exactly are the differences between these two positions? A link would be fine if someone has a good one, though I would love to hear it straight from one of you. Thanks.

    Thanks. And just to make sure since I don't want to flood the board with another new thread for a simple question, ALL elect go to heaven, right? It's impossible for any elect not to go to heaven. Correct?

    The main difference I think is that the Hyper-Calvinist does not witness to the lost.

    He has an improper view of human responsibility and the need to evangelise. This is usually because of an over emphasis of the fourth point, ie. Irresistable Grace.

    Jonathan, I would highly recommend a book called 'A Journey in Grace - A Theological Novel' by Richard P Belcher. My Pastor gave me this book when I began to study Calvinism, I don't know if I could have grasped the Doctines of Grace without it. It is particularly good for young Christians like yourself.

    God Bless
