When it comes to Calvinism it appears to me that there are sometimes misconceptions from non-Calvinists. The tendency to group all Calvinists into one group or to claim all Calvinists hold certain beliefs which all may not appears to be easily found. Sometimes it is most likely due to a lack of understanding concerning Calvinism, sometimes it may be just a repeat of what one has been taught, and other times could actually just be the spreading of a serious dislike for the theology and/or the people.
If you find yourself condemning all Calvinists into one group called Hypers, honestly feel that you misunderstand Calvinism, or simply would like to know the difference between Calvinism and Hyper Calvinism, please consider reading the link below.
The topic was brought up on a forum I am a member of and here is a link that was posted:
A Primer on Hyper-Calvinism
Agree or disagree with the theology labeled as Calvinism, but don’t incorrectly lump all those that claim to hold to the Doctrines of Grace as Hypers.
