TULIP of a Different  Color 

TULIP is the famous Calvinist achronym. Well, I'm an Atemporal Synergistic Calvinist (ASC) and TULIP has too many letters. For us ACS's its more like TP, and that's just dirty. I've held a synod and came up with three points that describe what I believe:


  • Unlimited Adoption: All can be children of God.

  • Unlimited Potential Sanctification: All are potentially justified, there are NO lost causes.

  • Invisible Security: A man's salvation is known only by God and himself.

OK, so UUI is not a good achronym, but its better than TP. These points speak to human perspective. These are what we need to be concerned with and act on. TULIP may be true or it may not, but these are the implications that we must follow in reaching others Christian or not.

Awesome. Does your Synod plan on persecuting the dissidents?

Josh, you're such a dork. No, the beauty of ASC's TULIP is that there are no dissidents. All are potentially justified. God is a god of open arms not closed fists. Thankfully, because in a case of such define fisticuffs we'd all lose.
