Introduction 

Trying to define the Reformed faith simply and briefly is like taking a snapshop of the Grand Canyon at 50 yards: inevitably, something is going to get left out. Even an outline of it, though, is better than nothing at all, especially in these days when the American church desperately needs a revival of Calvinism.

That word Calvinism is much abused. Some Church of Christ believers and Baptists, for example, claim that when we of the Reformed faith use it, we are only proving their accusation that we are following a man, John Calvin. They, however, say they are following God and the Bible alone. It is really hard to believe they can be so naive, though. They read books written by and hear sermons preached by leaders of their own group and use these "man-made" works to give them a better understanding of what they believe the Bible teaches. The Reformed do the same thing with Augustine, Luther, Calvin, and others. We believe their teaching is closer to what the Bible teaches than anybody else's; we do not accept their teaching instead of the Bible. Only the Bible is infallible and authoritative; we just believe their teaching about it is superior to competing teachings.

A Study on Predestination by Pastor Wilder Voltaire of Dominican Republic:


 

I will be talking about the salvation or having eternal life, in this case, please, I ask you to turn off your “free will” or turn off your “choice”. And say to our Father right now: “Father, Your will be done on earth as it in heaven.”

In the social or economical side of our life God allows us to use the “free will” but still controlled by Him. Paul says: “He who sows sparingly will also reap sparingly; he who sows bountifully will also reap bountifully” 2 Corinthians 9:6. He is talking about giving which is the social side of man’s decision. He gives us an option here. Reap sparingly and reap bountifully are an option. And if anyone will not work, neither shall he eat. 2 Thessalonians 3:10. This is a social option or economical option. We can use the free will here. But we must remember there is a price to pay for every decision we have made which is under this sentence: “for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap”. Galatians 6:7. That’s up to us. It is an option.
