I recently came across an interesting suggestion. Read here and see what you think:

“So, what is the suggested acronym?  G.O.S.P.E.L.  What better way to make reference to the Doctrines of Grace?  Calvinism, after all, is about the sovereign grace of God in the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  The Doctrines of Grace are the biblical teachings regarding G.O.S.P.E.L. grace and glory.  Allow me, therefore, to supply a brief explanation of this acronym.


“God’s Glory: Foundational to the Doctrines of Grace is the biblical teaching that God’s redeeming work is to the praise of His glorious grace (Eph. 1:3-14 especially vv. 6, 12; Rom. 11:33-36).


“Original Sin: This point replaces Total Depravity in T.U.L.I.P.  The doctrine of original sin is greatly lost in our day, which is one good reason for making this change.


“Sovereign Election: This point replaces Unconditional Election in T.U.L.I.P.  The point of unconditional election is that God’s choice of His redeemed people was not rooted in anything they have done, but simply in the sovereign and good purposes of God (otherwise it’s not grace).


“Particular Atonement: This point replaces Limited Atonement in T.U.L.I.P.  We Calvinists are often forced to clarify the meaning of limited atonement, and our clarifications nearly always include the use of the word ‘particular’.


“Effectual Grace: This point replaces irresistible grace in T.U.L.I.P.  Like the previous point, I believe this point will also provide much needed clarification.


“Lasting Grace: This point replaces Perseverance of the Saints in T.U.L.I.P.”

Are you praying for God’s work in Vietnam?

Here’s a request at another site:

“Ancestor Worship: Pray for new believers to stand firm in their faith, especially in the face of opposition from family members.”

Baptists & Calvinistic Heritage


October 31 is Reformation Day, the day Martin Luther (1483-1546) nailed up his 95 theses. Thus, the five “solas” or “onlys” seem appropriate:


  1. Scripture Alone: Scripture alone as the authority for life and practice in the church. (Only Scripture; Latin: Sola Scriptura)


  1. Grace Alone: God’s sovereign grace alone as the reason for our salvation without any actual or potential human merit, effort, faith, or work. (Only Grace; Latin: Sola Gratia)


  1. Faith Alone: Justification by faith alone and no human works. (Only faith; Latin: Sola Fide)


  1. Christ Alone: Salvation through the Person and work of Jesus Christ alone. (Only Christ; Latin: Solus Christus)


  1. Glory of God Alone: All things ultimately for the glory of God alone. (Only God’s glory; Latin: Soli Deo Gloria)

Confessions of Dort (Dordt)

Điều 1: Sự Lựa Chọn Thiên Thượng và Sự Hư Mất

Vì trong Adam mọi người đều đã phạm tội, bị rủa sả và đáng chịu chết mất đời đời, Thương Đế rất công bình nên tất cả mọi người phải bị hư mất và chịu đoán phạt bởi tội lỗi của họ gây ra, theo như lời các Sứ Đồ: Để chó miệng nào cũng phải ngậm lại, cả thiên hạ đều nhận tội trước mặt Thượng Đế (Rôma 3:19) và vì mọi người đều đã phạm tội, thiếu mất sự vinh hiển của Thượng Đế (Rôm 3:23). Vì tiền công của tội lỗi là sự chết (Rôm 6:23). {Bằng Tiếng Việt: Canons of Dordt}


Article 1: God’s Right to Condemn All People

Since all people have sinned in Adam and have come under the sentence of the curse and eternal death, God would have done no one an injustice if it had been his will to leave the entire ­human race in sin and under the curse, and to condemn them on account of their sin. As the apostle says: “The whole world is liable to the condemnation of God” (Rom. 3:19), “All have sinned and are deprived of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23), and “The wages of sin is death” (Rom. 6:23).
