A “Five Point” Calvinist

3 Oct

In a lecture on Calvinism, B.B. Warfield gives five essential characteristics of a Calvinist and really of every spiritually growing believer:

1. He has seen God in his glory through faith
2. He is filled with a sense of his unworthiness to stand in God’s sight as a creature and as a sinner
3. At the same time he is filled with adoring wonder that this God is a God who receives sinners
4. He believes God without reserve
5. He is committed to God being God to him – not just in word – but in every last area of his life

May those characteristics be true of every one of us!
