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."

reformation vs. reformed theology

So it sounds like we're drawing a distinction between "theology that emerged with the Reformation" and a specific theological tradition unique to Calvinism, called Reformed Calvinism? As I am someone who tosses terms around pretty casually, I may need to be more careful....

When we talk about "Reformed" theology, on this thread, are we talking about the Calvinism that originated with John Calvin but adjusted by his followers? Or something like that?
