TULIP and the Doctrine of Calvinism: Introduction and Summary

The theology of the reformation has been a topic of personal study the past few weeks. Calvinism and Arminianism have been pitted against each other numerous times, some I would dare say leaving more confused or bewildered because of it. Both of these doctrines have caused their fair share of fear, awe, uncertainty, and tears, so I shall attempt to hopefully clear a few things up with a series looking at each doctrine of the acronym TULIP along with examining the verses used for and against them. This post will serve as a summary of this series so links will be posted here at the time of completion.

Total Depravity

Unconditional Election

Limited Atonement

Irresistible Grace

Perseverance of the Saints

Additional verses and passages examined will be included as they are completed.

1 Timothy 2:4

Romans 9

An important summary of each interpretation of the concept of predestination can be found in Glenn Millar’s article here.
