I came from an Arminian Baptistic/Pentecostal background in middle school/high school (my family isn't Christian so I didn't go to church until my teenage years) and thought something just wasn't right. Under the influence of R.C. Sproul and John Piper, I became Calvinist in my soteriology for a few months in the first year of college, and abandoned it when a friend's objection proved unanswerable (at least I thought so at the time.) 3 years later, I became convinced of the presuppositionalist approach to apologetics, which opened me up to the influence of the great Reformed thinkers Dr. Bahnsen and Dr. Van Til. I found myself still sympathizing with Calvinism, even though I did not consider myself Calvinist, but the more I studied, the more I identified myself with the Reformed camp. I dug deeper and discovered (with such great resources as the Heidelblog and PB) that being a 5-point Calvinist is only a small (albeit siginificant) part of being Reformed. Then, I set my sights on adhering to the confessions, first subscribing to the 1689, and the WCF later as I read Dr. Clark's posts on infant baptism and covenant theology on the HB. I recently went all in and left my old unconfessional church to join the PCA church down the street. I'm looking forward to continue learning from all of you and finally being able to interact as well. I've profited greatly from the discussions that I've read so far as an observer.
