You know, if you would have asked us a year ago what a reformed church was, we would of had absolutely no idea. Apparently, here in our state, reformed churches are few and far between.
We knew of Martin Luther, and the Reformation~a little. But there's no way we could of even begun to tell you what a "reformed" church believes.
Most people have little to no knowledge of Calvanism or Armenianism, we didn't. Maybe a few misconceptions, but that's about it. But, why does it matter?? Well, because doctrine IS important. Knowing what Scripture says is vitally important. It influences the way we think, act, talk, dress, what we watch(or won't watch), what we listen to...etc. At least~it SHOULD!!
It's doctrine...it's God's Word...Scripture....it's what we should be looking to for daily wisdom & instruction. These things are important.
