What's Special About Being Reformed?
We know that some Christians of other denominations have ways of thinking and of doing things that might seem unusual to other Christians. We know that the Amish avoid motor vehicles and live lives committed to simplicity. We know that our Baptist friends use lots of water when they baptize. But are there special things about the way we think and do things as Reformed Christians that might seem surprising to our non-Reformed brothers and sisters in Christ? This course looks at such topics as:
Where did dispensationalism / "left behind" theology come from and how did it become so popular? What's the Reformed alternative? How does thinking about what God intends for the future shape our present-day discipleship?
How do Reformed Christians interpret Scripture? The role of tradition, creeds, and confessions in Reformed theology.

What does it mean to be justified by faith? Is faith a meritorious activity on our part, which, when God sees it in us, moves God to save us? Why do we summarize God's will for us after our prayer of confession?

Order, structure, and tradition in Reformed worship. Not all agree that "The enemy of the Spirit is not form but anarchy," but it is characteristic of Reformed worship. Why is that?
