Reformed in Soteriology, Not Ecclesiology
This sign applies to me in some ways but not in others. The reason for this is that I agree with the Reformers in soteriology. In other words, I agree with Luther, Calvin, etc. on the doctrine of salvation.
However, I do not agree with the Reformers mentioned above in ecclesiology (the doctrine of the church). It is interesting how these men could be so biblical in their view of salvation, but so far off from the biblical model in their view of what the church is and does.
This is a good lesson to all of us (including me) that while we are correct in some of our beliefs, we are probably also incorrect on a few things.
