"Why Do You Believe Reformed Theology?" The short answer is that it's because I'm elect. I don't know how else to put it. If someone believes Reformed Theology sincerely, I'm not sure how they couldn't be. To say that it's not exactly the most entertaining, attractive "theology" to the carnal mind is an understatement. God's sovereign grace and His providence is the only explanation I can offer for that. I'm asked often if I know of a good, concise presentation not of the 5 points of Calvinism necessarily, but why I believe the doctrines of grace are what the Scriptures teach. Years ago, these mp3s were the two that turned me on to reformed theology. Before I was dilly-dallying around with KJVO and basically what was a mix of Arminianism and Pelagianism. (For those who believe the doctrines of grace and know what those two are, I'm sure you're saying "Amen" that God delivered me from that. The "as were some of you..." verse rings clear to me when I think back to those times.) God has used James White mightily in my life and in the lives of many. His uncompromising view of Scripture is welcomed by only those who believe that Scripture trumps tradition whether it be Roman Catholic, KJVO, or, as recent times has shown us, seeker-sensitive. These two mp3s will explain to you in a very large part why I believe Reformed Theology to be the true exposition of Scripture.
