REFORMED THEOLOGY The classic representative statements of Reformed theology are found in the catechisms and confessions of the Reformed Churches; e.g. the French Confession (1559), the Scots Confession (1560), the Belgic Confession (1561), the Heidelberg Catechism (1563), the Second Helvetic Confession (1566), the Thirty-nine Articles of the Church of England (1562, 1571), the Canons of the Synod of Dort (1619), the Westminster Confession of Faith and Catechisms (1647) and the Formula Consensus Helveticus (1675). NDT, S. 569
The article goes on to say that reducing Reformed Theology to Tulips is to lose sight of the panoramic grandeur of the Reformed view of church and cosmos. Nice! So, if you're Reformed you believe stuff that invigorates you. Pow! Expansive! Not stuffy, not legalistic and so much more than the annoying Tulip. It seems that for some their Reformed tag only means soteriology (and a limited part of that). But, that's like thinking Radiohead only released OK Computer; great, but there's so much more! It's interesting that in NDT Reformed Churches are those holding to the confessions listed. Well, it's interesting to me anyway - I used to be (or at least used to call myself) a Reformed Baptist. Now, I'm a Presbyterian. 'Labels, labels, labels!!', I hear you cry in despair. Ah yes, but when you eat your crisps it does matter whether its reformed potato or real potatoes, doesn't it?
