A quick biblical tour of TULIP

Awhile ago a friend of mine asked me about T.U.L.I.P., the acronym used to describe the 5 main points of Calvinism.

Abortion and the gospel

I just finished listening to John Piper’s sermon this week.  I really like him.  God consistently uses the words he speaks to convict and inspire me to do what is right.  This last week he spoke on abortion.  It’s amazing to me that since Roe vs  Wade there have been about 46 million abortions in the United States.  That is… Read more →
