31 Days of Feasting on Theology: Calvinism

31 Days 2017 Large

Gentle Reader,

Calvinism: The doctrine of salvation as formulated by French theologian John Calvin (1509-1564). Systematic in nature. Represented by the acronymn TULIP (Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irresistible Grace, Perseverance of the Saints).

Related Concepts and/or Examples

Total Depravity – sin impacts every person, and every part of every person

Uncondtional Election – God chose those who would be saved based on nothing but His will

Limited Atonement – Christ died only to save those He wanted to save (the elect)

Irresistible Grace – God’s grace overcomes the resistance of the elect

Perseverance of the Saints – God keeps the elect in a state of grace
