Calvinism committee issues report, urges SBC to 'stand together' for Great Commission
A 19-member advisory committee on Calvinism has issued its report to Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee President Frank Page, acknowledging tension and disagreement within the denomination on the issue while urging Southern Baptists to "grant one another liberty" and "stand together" for the Great Commission.

"We can talk like brothers and sisters in Christ, and we can work urgently and eagerly together," the 3,200-word report reads. "We have learned that we can have just this kind of conversation together, and we invite all Southern Baptists to join together in this worthy spirit of conversation. But let us not neglect the task we are assigned. The world desperately needs to hear the promise of the Gospel."

The advisory team -- not an official committee of the convention -- was assembled by Page in August 2012 to advise him on developing "a strategy whereby people of various ...

1. The Apostles were asking why Jesus spoke in parables. This wasn't talking about faith. Remember, they didn't know what He meant until He explained them. Yet, some people still believed.
2. These verses are an illusion to Jer. 18-19. It says, God may speak to destroy a nation, but if they turn He will remake it into another vessel.
3. It doesn't mean they couldn't hear previously or ever. Some Pharisees eventually believed. Aagh, space!

Well, as I have pointed out before my church supports Unlimted rather Limited atonement, Amyraldism (Four point Calvinism), which also means exactly the same people are saved as those who would say that the five points are Biblical. But, since Dave Hunt turned on several points of Calvinism as viciously as any Catholic, this is why (Well, I haven't checked ) handle any of his books including excellent A Woman Rides the Beast: The Roman Catholic Church and the Last Days [Paperback] which makes no remarks about Calvinism. Ah, and for those who might be upset about the dispensational parts of the book, I'll remind you of The Calvinistic Heritage of Dispensationalism.

By the way, Gil Rugh has an excellent ebook out Calvinism & Arminianism (PDF), which gives you the Biblical background for the various points of Calvinism,e.g.,

Irresistible Grace -- Romans 8:30.

"“Give yourself unto reading.”
The man who never reads will never be read;
he who never quotes will never be quoted.
He who will not use the thoughts of other men’s brains, proves that he has no brains of his own.

You need to read.
We are quite persuaded that the very best way for you to be spending your leisure time, is to be either reading or praying. You may get much instruction from books which afterwards you may use as a true weapon in your Lord and Master’s service. Paul cries, “Bring the books” — join in the cry."
(from Spurgeon’s, "Paul — His Cloak and His Books)

4. John, if your doctrine says one thing, but your practise denies it, I have every right to suspect both your doctrine and you. This is not being judgmental, but sensible. If you also do not do this, I suggest you make a start, lest false prophets and heretics get a hold of you. Oops, too late, they already have.

Good Morning John,
It seems you have your plate full this morning and I appreciate your 'other peoples' reponse to my earlier question. I have to put the earlier answer in the 'I dont know' column. Your U goes up the Reformed 'L' (Limited Atonement)

It seems to contradict many areas of Scripture , just a few due to character limits on SA

Matthew 13:11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given.

Romans 9:21 Hath not the potter power over the clay, of the same lump to make one vessel unto honour, and another unto dishonour?

1. No, rocks do NOT cry out to the lost.
2. The early missionary societies believed that if a person did not hear, they could not believe; and if they did not believe on Christ, they could not be saved.
3. Now John, you claim that God has an intense love for every single person, shown by Jesus dying for every single person, thereby making them saveable by his shed blood. 4. But this doctrine of your's does not have the effect of constraining you to go reach as many people as possible with the gospel. Therefore either you do not really believe it, or you are a slothful, wicked servant who does not his Master's will.
1. "If these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out." (Luke 19:40). Silly me, I should have said stones. Or do you suppose Jesus was wrong? God loves us so much that if believers remained silent, He would still spread the Gospel truth miraculously.
2. "And how shall they preach, except they be sent?" (Rms 10:15). God sends the truth so that they may hear and be saved.
3. God claimed to love the world in John 3:16.
4. May God be merciful to me a sinner. But who are you to judge another man's servant? To his own master he stands or falls.

And since last night, thousands more have crossed the Jordan into hell.

It's all a game to folks like you.

U-Unlimited offer of salvation. It is not limited to a select few, it is for you, your children, and to all who are afar off, as many as the Lord God will call (Acts 2:39).

Can you have "free will" if you have election?
Yes, because God only selects believers for salvation. We only have the free will to repent and believe when God presents the Gospel message to us. Those who believe are then elect unto salvation.

If the gospel is not revealed to some, then how are they to decide upon it? You will need to explain this further. At this point this is all I see it as.

I don't think there is enough information about those cultures to be dogmatic, but the Bible teaches us that the Gospel has gone out into all the world. Even if they did not have scriptures, they would be responsible to believe in God as those from before the Bible was written.

If you feel this way then by all means go ahead and give him the best genuine Biblical answer you might, although Troll Spotter has already given one that SteveR has apparently ignored, making me think his question really isn't any kind of honest inquiry for knowledge or understanding but of course that is my opinion.

If you decide to correspond with SteveR, I might just step back a little and watch how things unfold between the two of you.

If man responds on his own to the gospel after hearing, then those tribes that never heard the message perished.
If man's response is a deciding factor, then God was unjust in withholding something they needed to be saved.
Michael, if your premise is correct, then either way, God by inaction "unelected" some.

(True Calvinist wrote: Do you think that Baptists really can be truly Calvinist in the Biblical sense?)

Calvin would certainly say no, he rejected the anabaptists, writing that "we have no fellowship with them" and they were guilty of damnable heresy.

I agree with much of reformed theology, but to Calvin and others of the reformation you couldn't be a Christian if you denied infant baptism.
