Is TR the Right Designation?

John ArmstrongReformed Christianity

Several days ago (June 2) I wrote ten questions about conservative Reformed movements that I think beg for careful thought and discussion by serious Christians within these various movements.

While I’m at it, there is one more question that makes me wonder even more:

Would it be more accurate to refer to some conservative Reformed spokesmen, not as TR (Truly Reformed), but rather as VR (Viciously Reformed), or perhaps as AR (Angrily Reformed)?

There is very often more psychology involved in these debates than theology, at least in one fairly observable sense. Time and again I have watched as fear, insecurity and the need for approval and control all drive such debaters and their agendas. For folks who confess the sovereignty of God it does make you wonder a great deal.
