    Funny (and sad), something like Calvinism’s latest hashtag: #somelivesmatter.

      Would be funny if it wasn’t true.

      I think there’s two reasons why people continue to cling to a mistake such as Protestantism even after they know in their hearts that it’s error:

      1> Ego investment
      2> Salvation investment

      There is always that lingering doubt and fear that everything they have invested in is wrong, but they still hold on to that hope that it might not be.

        You are correct, but this investment has terrible returns.

        I agree with you; suppose you’ve tithed thousands into your “church” over the years, have “worked” your way up and become one of God’s personal spokesmen (elders, etc.), have married in the church, have taught Calvinism School (on Sundays, that is; and then during other times through the week, like at the brainwash sessions known as home/small/cell groups, where you’ve become the main homeboy), then it must be very hard to let go of this damnatory lie called Calvinism. Ego, pride…those fine Reformed/Calvinist characteristics will stand in your way like a giant boulder in a narrow passage.

        In the end, it’s one’s choice, and that is one of the many perfect beauties of God’s attributes: His fairness.
