No Winebibbers Need Apply

Jesus and the Apostle Paul have both been officially bypassed by the Southern Baptist Convention by the adoption of a resolution stating that no person who uses alcoholic beverages can be an elected servant of the SBC.

While the SBCCALVINIST understands the motivation behind the resolution it is strange that a people who pride themselves on being a people of the book so easily disregard its clear message.

Page is President of the SBC

An important page in SBC history may have been written today as Frank Page was elected on the first ballot to the Presidency of the SBC.

Dr. Page won over Dr. Ronnie Floyd and Dr. Jerry Sutton, who basically split 50% of the vote between themselves. Dr. Page garnered 50.48% of the total votes for president.

Dr. Page has been outspoken against Calvinism in the past as he authored a book entitled The Trouble with Tulip that has been cited many times in the run up to this election. Whether or not he will reach out to Calvinists and include them in his vision of the SBC remains to be seen.

This has certainly been an interesting Convention so far.

The C-Word Keeps Coming Up

And I don't mean the Cooperative Program.

Morris Chapman said today that we should keep Calvinism out of our Churches. Amazing.

Amazing because Charles Spurgeon didn't keep it out of the Metropolitan Tabernacle.
Amazing because W.A. Criswell didn't keep it out of the pulpit of FBC of Dallas, Texas.
Amazing because Southern Baptists didn't keep it out of Southern Seminary in 1859 or in 1993.
Amazing because Southern Baptists support the teaching of it through CP Gifts.

A pastor from Georgia made a motion that we study Calvinism and see what its effect is on the SBC.

I'm beginning to get the impression that Calvinism is concerning many Southern Baptists!

Dr. Fish Called As Interim Pres. of NAMB

Dr. Roy Fish has been called in a unanimous vote by the NAMB trustees to be the interim President of the North American Mission Board.

While the SBCCALVINIST has great respect for Dr. Fish and his service to Southern Baptists we still have two questions.

1. Is Dr. Fish the Best Choice among all Southern Baptists for this important task?
2. Will Dr. Fish's well known anti-Calvinist bias allow him to serve all Southern Baptists?

Caner Can't Change SBC History

But he can surely try. The latest Caner shot at Calvinists is posted on the Jerry Falwell Ministries Site. You can read it for yourself here.

The SBC Calvinist's Take on All of This? Professors are human too. They are many times wrong on many subjects. The historical evidence of Calvinism among early Southern Baptists is obviously a part of Caner's neglected studies.
