I am new to the Puritan Board. I am not asking what you might think that I would be asking considering the title of this thread.
I would like to know everyone's thoughts regarding people who affirm the TULIP but reject the label "Calvinist." I know of a few people like this. For instance, Francis Chan seems to be a closet Calvinist. I have never heard him refer to himself as a Calvinist, but if you listen to his teachings this seems to be exactly what he teaches. Chris Tomlin and Louie Giglio would be two more examples.
I'm not completely sure about either of them, but I believe they are monergists from what I can tell. Chris Tomlin's church teaches the doctrines of grace and every time I hear his song "Famous One" I always think of the chapter in John Piper's book The Pleasures Of God titled The Pleasures Of God In His Fame. I don't think that's too much of a stretch since John Piper is involved in the Passion Worship movement. And Louie Giglio is one of the founders of the Passion Worship movement and since reformed theology plays such an integral part in everything that Passion does regarding the emphasis of God's renown, I would assume that he's reformed.
