    Paige Patterson encourages Calvinists to leave Southern Baptist Convention

    http://www.patheos.com/blogs/jesuscr...=socialnetwork

    The other speaker at the chapel used a particularly bad argument; guilt by association because some Calvinists smoke and drink.

    Odd, since Baptists seem to be more Calvinists than not IIRC.
    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. – St. John Chrysostom

    I'd bet almost anything your average churchgoer has no idea what Calvinism is.

    In my experience, most Baptists aren't intellectual enough to fully embrace Calvinism, or to fully adopt (or create) any competing system. But there is a lot of Calvinist influence in the Southern Baptist Convention. Also, it's sad that they focus more on their man-made rules against drinking than they do on their formation of theology.

    In that case, I'm not sure I've ever encountered an "average churchgoer."

    They can't become Presbyterians because they were fated to be Baptists. They have no choice.

    As an outsider, I may not fully understand all of the theological nuances involved, but perhaps her position could be summarized as, 'Of course God loves everyone, even Calvinists, but not enough to let them have an occasional glass of wine.'
    βλέπομεν γὰρ ἄρτι δι᾿ ἐσόπτρου ἐν αἰνίγματι, τότε δὲ πρόσωπον πρὸς πρόσωπον·
    ἄρτι γινώσκω ἐκ μέρους, τότε δὲ ἐπιγνώσομαι καθὼς καὶ ἐπεγνώσθην.

    אָכֵ֕ן אַתָּ֖ה אֵ֣ל מִסְתַּתֵּ֑ר אֱלֹהֵ֥י יִשְׂרָאֵ֖ל מוֹשִֽׁיעַ׃

    I'd take that bet!


    (only if I wanted to lose bigly)

    1 Tim 2:5 For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus.
