What is a Calvinist? This is a question someone asked me the other day and I wasn't sure how to answer him.
We know that Calvinists hold to the TULIP acronym to describe their beliefs, but how many points does one need to agree with to be a true Calvinist? If one agrees with three points of TULIP, are they a Calvinist? How about four? Must one agree with all five points to be a true Calvinist?
I laughed when a student who was in a class with me at SWBTS said that all baptists are "whiskey" Calvinists. They believe in one-fifth of TULIP. :)
So what do you say? How many points of TULIP must one believe before he or she is a Calvinist?
