arrow chart Tulip Chart An overview introducing the Bible study series refuting the five points of Calvinism.

arrow T ~Total Depravity This lesson examines human nature, and the mechanism by which sin and death spread to all. Is it by heredity or by contagion?

arrow U ~Unconditional ElectionHas God unconditionally chosen or elected some people for eternal life, whilst passing others by?

arrow L ~Limited AtonementThe question uppermost in our mind, when we consider the doctrine of "Limited Atonement" is this: Did Jesus die for some and not for others?

arrow P ~Perseverance of the SaintsCan a saved person cease to be saved and become lost again? The doctrine of the perseverance of the saints says No. Is that right or wrong?
