Reformed Theology

ElderDad's picture

There may have previously been a thread on this subject, but I don't find it high enough in the list to see it. Therefore, I will start a thread and let it take its course. The purpose of this topic is to provide a place other than the Study of the Gospel of John, where it has become a side issue with considerable activity. Unfortunately, it is off-track there, so here it is in the open forum. The purpose is to give a place to post items dealing with traditional Reformed Theology. Because CCEL comes out of the Reformed community, there are many books dealing with Reformed Theology and Preaching in the CCEL library. However, in keeping with the ecumenical effort of the founders and supporters of this site, there are also books in the CCEL library that disagree with Reformed Theology. Sooooo, let me remind all participants in this forum, "Keep it loving, or keep it at home."

re: about the Presbyterian churches


About your comment,
"What always amazed me was the number of laymen in the Presbyterian churches who clung to traditional Presbyterian theology while their pastors got up and gave sermons putting down inspiration, virgin birth, miracles, etc.",

I was wondering if you knew that there are two distinct denominations in the the Presbyterian churches. One is the Presbyterian Church(USA) that would fit your description above. The other is The Presbyterian Church of America (PCA)- that holds to the Reformed doctrines.
