    Men walk about today reading the books of great Gospel preachers of the past.

    They use their names.

    They claim their mantle.

    But they preach a new and different gospel that is not a true gospel at all.

    They sing the songs of Calvinists that used to tell sinners that they need to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation but now they OMIT THE WORD BELEIVE from their messages, tracts, and creeds.

    They tell their children to sit still until the Holy Spirit stirs them to faith. Yet the great Spurgeon NEVER preached such a gospel.

    Who are these new "Calvinist Baptists" with their new gospel?

    The explosion of Calvinist, Creedal, Reformed Baptists continues apace in these days of declension.


    What do they believe?

    What do they teach?

    Can an anabaptist be 'reformed'? Does he need to be?

    How can you link arms with a movement that has a proven history of killing and persecuting anabaptists?

    And how can you change the doctrinal postisions of the church, change the Bible that church uses, change the polity of the church, change the Gospel that church preached, and NOT change the name and musical of the church. You would have to be a hypocrite to NOT change the rest.

    Oh foolish Baptists - who has bewitched you?!

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    I am the pastor of the Aberdeen Primitive Baptist Church, Aberdeen, MS. I agree with the subject completely. The truths of Election and Predestination did not begin with the Reformation. They began with the New Testament, and true Baptists have been preaching these truths since the days of Christ and the Apostles.

    “ Why I AM a Reformed Baptist ”
    I can't speak for every Reformed Baptist. I can speak for myself and what I observe in other Reformed Baptist. We point EVERYONE to Christ and Christ Alone. We never point anyone to The London Baptist Confession We point everyone to Scripture. Galatians 1 is about a Gospel other than what Paul preached. Paul Preached about the Elect and about Predestination. In Romans 9, Paul knows many will reject what he is saying. We do not skip over the verses that are difficult to understand or accept. The Bible is full of the Sovereignty of God. The only reason Reformed Baptist are a new thing is because traditionally Reformed Churches are Pedo-Baptist. But we Believe in a Believers Baptism. We read the words of Paul and verses in the old testament (Ezekiel 36:26) and see a powerful God. Not a Weak God of man's design. We do not Judge God by a Standard of Man. We accept what God has spoken in his word, and try to understand it as best we can. There may be Reformed Baptist who are exactly as Jonathan Modene has portrayed them, but none that I know. We believe strongly telling the Lost about our Lord Jesus Christ. We love each other and Love the Lost and try to reach them with the Gospel. Credo Baptist yet Reformed in Soteriology.

    “ wait, please read ”
    the Second London Baptist Confession of 1689 and if you agree why would you not want to identify with reformed thought

    Wonderful topic and wonderful arguments.

    “ Must listen ”
    Its a must listen for those confident in their faith. In this Sermon to his flock some very strong language is used against professing Christians of several denominations. With the harshest rebuke to those 'dirty hypocrites' in his own. It appeals more to the flesh than the spirit, but that might account for the 5000+ downloads By Gods Grace The Lord did nourish me with a worthy Sermon at my Church prior to listening to the conclusion of this message. Nevertheless, this is out there, and we all need to be aware of it.

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    We need to go back to the 1st century church and the Bible rather than the reformation. As was stated, what was followed before these creeds were written? Calvinism is a new doctrine since it does not go back to the Bible. Having been in the Reformed movement in the past, I think there is a lot of nominal "Christianity" in the Reformed movement.

    “ Discernment is a Gift from God ”
    This sermon paints with very wide brush strokes the point that the listener may struggle at discerning the linkeage between the seeker-sensitive movement mentioned in the sermon as well as the reformed Baptists. Certainly the two group are light years apart. So then one senses that everyone is the target.

    “ Baptists and Reformed Theology ”
    To those who are not comfortable with the Reformed roots of Baptists, I suggest that you read these two articles. http://www.reformedreader. org/ctf.htm http://www.refor You may also want to acquire a copy of "Reformed Baptist Roots in America" by Dr. Sam Waldron. Glory to God for the ongoing reformation among Reformed Baptist churches.

    “ Listen and Learn! ”
    This is a much needed wake-up call for people who want the title Reformed and denominational name Baptist. It clearly points out the paradox of such a name as Reformed Baptist.

    “ Great Sermon! ”
    its about time somebody told the truth of the heresy of Calvanism...Southern Baptists should wake up...dont vote for Al a 5 point Calvanist for president.

    Christian Raas (8/11/2007)
    “ Great Sermon! ”
    Thank you so much for this comforting message. The system of calvinism is a terrible bondage and has created fear in my life for a long time, because I wondered if I was predestinded for hell. And to many reformed christians Calvin is almost super-human, much like a pope. I am not denying Calvin's salvation or his zeal for God, but he was totally human and capable of very serious error like all of us.

    A preacher that actually preaches the WORD! Praise God for this message when I needed it most. So many Baptist Churches and so little biblical preaching.
