[Covenanted Reformation] Re: Alpha Coarse
- My current church (a semi-charismatic church) uses and emphasises the
Alpha course. Since the church believes the Doctrines of Grace,
unlimited atonment is not taught in the course. However, what gets
me is that it emphasises a "non-threatening" atmosphere, which seems
to allow anything to be discussed in a "non-controversial" manner and
thus does not emphasise the Gospel or allows heresies to be discussed
on the same plane as Christianity. I would not recommend the course
becaues of that.
