Closed loop

I see very intelligent and God fearing Christians talk about adhering to “reformed theology” and wonder where they get the concept or paradigm from in scripture?

 

What’s more, from past experience, many of them can’t understand the question.

 

And that hints at a closed loop, that perhaps they can’t understand the question because John Calvin has greater authority than scripture.

If ones faith comes down to a choice between Calvinism or Arminianism then they’ve really not understood scripture as the early church did. It’s a paradigmatic problem.

Systematic Theology is a good thing, and there’s grave danger if people disregard it, however, the NT paradigm is not defined by a system of theology, no matter how good it is.
