  • TULIP Season: An analysis of the five points of Reformed Soteriology

    6 Lessons


    Reformed theology (Calvinism) is a very popular theological movement in the church today, especially among the young. Due to its popularity, it is essential that we “question the assumptions” of the basic tenants of the Reformed movement. These assumptions are known by the acrostic TULIP.

    R.C. Sproul is arguably the most influential proponent of Reformed Theology. Sproul introduces the TULIP system by discussing the theological controversy that resulted in the development of the popular acrostic. Sproul explains:

    “There were basically five doctrines that were the core of the controversy. As a result of this debate, these five core theological issues became known in subsequent generations as the “five points of Calvinism.” They are now known through the very popular acrostic TULIP, which is a clever way to sum up the five articles that were in dispute. The five points, as they are stated in order to form the acrostic TULIP, are: total depravity, unconditional election, limited atonement, irresistible grace, and perseverance of the saints.” (1)

    These “five points of Calvinism,” as Sproul calls them, will be the topic of this course. In “TULIP Season,” class participants will learn the basic five points and analyze their Biblical basis. Students will be encouraged to discard theological ideas that do not have solid Biblical footing.

    NOTE: Dr. White does not hold to Calvinism or Reformed Theology. His perspective will be from a point of a Berean, searching the Scriptures to test theological ideas.
