Rick,
wonderful thoughts. I have never heard of the Reformers.
Since I became a Christian, I have always maintained that IT is all Christ. For if we could do anything on our own, then why would we need God. If we could do even the least of things, there would be much boasting, and fraud.
I grew up going to Catholic school and church, but I did not know about Christianity until Oct of 1989. I am currently going to a Pentecostal Church and there are some who believe that we can somehow increase our faith if we try hard enough. And there are others who believe that certain tribulations befall us because we do not have enough faith. That line of thinking sounds alot like works to me.
Where can I find out more about the Reformed without wading through a bunch of...theological hogwash?


thanks
michael
