"No Creed But Christ"?!?!

While we may be sincere in saying that we have "no creed but Christ" and subscribe to no "man-made" system of theology like Calvinism or Arminianism, let's face the music. The music being that whatever we say about how God saves sinners ends up fitting into a historic theological category and ends up being associated with a particular "ism." So rather than pietistic sounding boasts of biblicism, there are times when it is helpful to see where one fits historically as we seek to be as biblical as we can be for the glory of Christ. This brings us to our next chapter in Warfield's The Plan of Salvation which is the chapter called Calvinism. Read the chapter for Tuesday, December 4th and be edified.
