"According to the Doctrines of Grace or Reformed Theology, salvation is accomplished by the almighty power of the Triune God. The Father chose a people, the Son died for them, and the Holy Spirit makes Christ's death effective by bringing the elect to repentance and faith, thereby causing them to willingly obey the gospel. The entire process (election, redemption, regeneration, justification, sanctification, glorification) is the work of God and is by grace alone for His glory alone. Thus God, not man, determines who will be the recipients of the gift of salvation." Source: (www.gccministries.org/106621.ihtml ).
Thus, "Reformed Theology" is a phrase used synonymously with the Five Points of Calvinism (which includes the doctrine of predestination) and is also referred to as the "Doctrines of Grace". We direct you to those links for further discussion.
BibleTruthForToday Concerns regarding these doctrines:
We at BibleTruthForToday believe that Reformed Theology (Calvinism) is the theology of a religious system that is ultimately contrary to the overall revelation of God in the Bible. Calvinism includes the doctrine of predestination (divine election), and is often (although NOT always) closely associated with infant baptism, baptismal salvation, and covenant theology.
