    Kerry G: I think you are on to something about "how" the doctrines of grace are taught. I know that George Grant suggests that when someone becomes reformed he not talk to anyone for 5 years! This is a joke, of course, but he is suggesting that becoming Calvinistic can be associated with becoming a bit bombastic.

    The WCF provides some sage advice:

    I think Fred is right too, that this is not limited to Calvinsim. My guess is that it is more associated with converts to a doctrine. Converts tend to be especially zealous. It can also be an expression of Paul's teaching that knowledge puffs up.

    If you read Frankie Schaeffer or Clark Carlton (converts to Eastern Orthodoxy), they are fairly bombastic too. Schaeffer drips with a disdain for all things evangelical.
