Leithart On Mixing And Matching Theology

From Peter Leithart’s excellent blog:

A candidate for ministry who holds to a Lutheran view of the real presence and a Calvinist view of double predestination would be welcome in neither Lutheran nor Reformed churches.

What does that say about Protestantism? Are the different doctrinal and confessional systems so airtight that this kind of mix-and-match is impossible? Are they airtight because they were designed precisely to exclude such mixing-and-matching? And, if so, what does that say about Protestantism?

So what do you think? Is this a good thing or a bad thing? How could things be different?
