I have found that women are the hardest to convince about reformed doctrine. Has anyone else observed this? Will you share with me how you went about this task? Aside from prayer saturation? Thanks!

Definitely. I know one woman who gets down right bulgey-eyed every time it gets mentioned. Interestingly, she and her husband attended a Reformed Pres church until they left for a Church of God In Christ place.

If only we harness that hyper-emotionalism for good!

I am a woman and I'm happy to say I was the first in my family to embrace reformed theology!!(Probably not the norm) My husband easily and eagerly embraced it shortly thereafter. Our then teen age son was not so easily won over. He would cover his ears and chant LA-LA-LA-LA-LA-LA when ever we talked about the TULIP. After reading a few good books, listening to a few good theologians, including our pastor,Robert Johnson II, of Cornerstone Baptist Church, Roseville MI, our son embraced Reformed Theology. He loves music and wrote a song "Where the Tulip Grows". Rose

I am glad to be proven wrong in your case, forgiven1!

How is it going with trying to share reformed theology with your girlfriends? I hope they are as open-minded as you! :-)
