What is TULIP?
You may have heard the term TULIP. While tulips are beautiful flowers, TULIP is an acronym for certain Biblical principles of the beautiful salvation of the Lord: Total Depravity, Unconditional Election, Limited Atonement, Irresistible Grace, and Perseverance of the Saints.
Below are a series of articles I wrote for “The Link” newsletter briefly explaining each principle of TULIP:

The End Times?
Back in the early 90’s I was involved in RUF (Reformed University Fellowship) at Auburn University, and we sang a lot of hymns in the format found in Indelible Grace’s “RUF Hymnbook” Indelible Grace Website. Years later, I was delighted to find out about the Hymnbook, acquired it, and ended up spending quite a bit of time with my guitar in hand playing a number of the songs just singing my heart out in worship (just me, the Lord, and my cat lol). Here is one of my favorites from the RUF Hymnbook, “On Jordan’s Stormy Banks,” streaming for your enjoyment.
“With what can we compare the kingdom of God,
or what parable shall we use for it?”
– Mark 4:30
Here is a great collection of Francis Schaeffer resources – Francis Schaeffer Collection
From the site:
“Dr. Schaeffer was a Christian theologian and philosopher who, together with his wife Edith, founded the first L’Abri community in Switzerland in 1955. From the 1960’s, until his death in 1984, Dr Schaeffer’s lectures and discussions were recorded as a resource for future students.”
Good article by Daniel Hyde positively summarizing the principle.
Hyde explains: “The Regulative Principle of Worship holds that we worship God in the manner He has commanded us in His Word.”
