How to Discuss Reformed Theology

The following video from our brothers at Lampmode demonstrate how reformed theology, otherwise known as Calvinism, should be discussed among brothers and sisters in Christ.  Even though these four men are not all in 100% agreement, the conversation is rooted in love and humility with the goal to glorify God and edify one another.  Lord […]
