The purpose of this list is the discussion of Reformed Theology, as expressed particularly in the Westminster Standards (Scottish-Presbyterian) and the Three forms of Unity (Dutch Calvinism). For helpful links to these documents and others, please see:
We are also compiling a collection of files and FAQ's in the Files section of our group.
1) Before posting a message, please contribute a "bio" (short biography) to the list, which includes your reasons for joining the list, your "testimony," and your current church membership. If you wish to "lurk" (read messages but not post), submitting a bio is optional. Anonymous posting is not permitted.
The purpose of the bio is a) to promote a sense of fellowship by getting to know one another, and b) for members to have some idea each other's background and theological convictions, for more effective communication.
2) This list is not for members of non-reformed or "less" reformed communions (e.g., Roman Catholics, Arminians, Eastern Orthodox), or non-Christians to debate their agenda. Such are not barred from the list, but may have only limited participation, asking questions of interest or clarification.
Nota bene: This means that for full participation on the list, one must be a member of, or seeking membership in, a reformed or evangelical congregation.
Topics not directly related to Reformed Theology, or discussion generating more heat than light, will be curtailed by the moderators. List culture does permit some humorous posts.
It is not necessary for members constantly to give the Scriptural basis for the accepted commonplaces of Reformed Theology, but discussion of the biblical basis of our faith is encouraged, and we should be prepared to give biblical reasons for our convictions if asked to do so. The burden of proof, however, is on those questioning an accepted Reformed position.
God's richest blessings on you.
