Reformed Theology

A distinction between reformed theology and reformed soteriology

This is a purely informative post simply because I've seen people miss the distinction between Reformed Theology and Reformed Soteriology. For those who understand this better than I, I accept correction. I really don't intend to post after this, but I would like to see what people write in response.

Reformed Theology: This is the broader category. One could lump Covenant Theology in here, and I'm fairly certain that Reformed Theology would cease being reformed theology if Covenant Theology were removed from it. This broader category includes the small category "Reformed Soteriology" as a general rule, but I believe that there is an exception to this. I believe that it would be proper to see Reformed Theology and Covenant Theology as interchangeable terms. However, I think that one should take note that some, in "reformed theology's" more popular usage (general internet conversation), use the label in less of a "covenant theology" sense, and they use it more in a soteriological sense. I think that some would use the label "reformed theology" to designate a theology that is like the Reformation; one that is constantly reforming or seeking to mold itself to the pattern laid out in Scripture.
