Ever notice? Legion asked permission of Jesus to flee to the pigs, and he granted it.

But totally never claimed to be God, right? Must've been that "wise moral teacher" authority over demons.

Reformed Theology Casting out demons?  Calvinism

Casting out demons?

Reformed Theology Casting out demons?  Calvinism
Casting out demons?

A bit of an odd question, but frankly, I'm curious!

  • What is the average Reformed opinion on casting out demons?

  • Do you believe that you personally have the authority to cast out demons in the name of Jesus as a servant of Christ Jesus?

I know there is a very broad range of beliefs regarding what is or isn't demonic, so let's go with something incredibly basic for argument's sake:

Someone comes up to you while doing evangelism, foaming at the mouth, profaning the name of God, calling himself "Legion" and shouting "These men are servants of the Most High God, who are telling you the way to be saved!" What authority / ability do you think you have as a representative of Christ? And why?

Reformed Theology Resource for Terminology?  Calvinism
Resource for Terminology?

Hey all! I had been thinking lately that it would be nice if there was a book or resource for commonly used Christian/Biblical terminology used throughout the church, whether it's from the pulpit, or studies, or whatever. Just something that would give a brief explanation of terms like – Exegesis, Eschatology, Dispensationalism, Covenant, Apologetics, etc… I was just thinking something like that would be useful for especially new believers who may start hearing words used like this & they have never been exposed to their definitions. Is there anything like this that's out there & reliable? Thanks in advance!
