New Book On Baptism By Mark Dever and Southern Seminary Professors

The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary has announced that several of their professors have teamed with Mark Dever to write a book on baptism, Believer's Baptism: Sign of the New Covenant in Christ.

One of the book's editors is Thomas R. Schreiner, a leading advocate of the "born again before faith" heresy. For more on Dr. Schreiner, see the Calvinist Flyswatter article, Southern Baptist seminary professor affirms "regeneration before faith" heterodoxy.

It's bad enough that Southern Seminary has multiple hybrid/hyper/neo/extreme Calvinist professors that promote this strange view of regeneration. Now they have partnered with Mark Dever who is totally over the cliff on the doctrine of baptism.

For discussions of Dever's odd views on baptism, I invite you to visit the following Flyswatter articles:

Mark Dever vs. the SBC and Charles H. Spurgeon,

Children: Mark Dever vs. Charles Spurgeon,

Children: Mark Dever vs. Charles Spurgeon, part 2,

Children: Mark Dever vs. Charles Spurgeon, part 3, and,

Why Did Mark Dever Lose at the Southern Baptist Convention?

I hope Southern Baptists everywhere will reject the odd practices of Mark Dever regarding baptism.

Dever wrote one chapter in the book. He was not one of the main editors nor do the rest of the authors necessarily share his view on the age of Baptism.

DEVER AGREES WITH
TOM SCHREINER?

The "born again before faith" article by Schreiner, appears on Mark Dever's website, so I assume Dever must agree with Schreiner that one is "born again before faith."

BTW, Charles, I heard nothing more from any one in regard to the question about the matter of a "debate" with Dr. Schreiner on this subject, which was raised some time ago by "Hashman" on the Flyswatter. While the Hybrids teach this view, I doubt seriously that any one of them would like to defend it in a public debate against a Confessional Calvinist who would have all of the Baptist Confessions supporting his view. As much as Founders affiliate Scott Morgan, for example, has talked about a debate, it has been nearly a year now, and he is still reneging on his own proposal for a debate -- despite the fact I have suggested that he welcome to have some allies (such as James White, Tom Ascol, Tom Nettles, etc.) as his assistants.

Brother Bob, Hello!

You wrote, has been nearly a year now, and he [SCOTT MORGAN]is still reneging on his own proposal for a debate -- despite the fact I have suggested that he welcome to have some allies (such as James White, Tom Ascol, Tom Nettles, etc.) as his assistants.

Scott is all bark and no bite.

Brother Bob, some of my early posts on the Flounders blog were about how "Dr." James White always seemed to run from you like a scalded dog. Most of my posts on you and White were quickly deleted of course. Along with my posts asking how many baptisms Mark Dever had in his church.

Refusing to answer my posts, eventually some of the Flounder friends said, "Charles, get your own blog!"

So I did.

Charles

SPEAKING OF NEW BOOKS . . .

Bob to Charles:

I know this blog is not a place to advertise, but I hope I might be permitted to mention another Spurgeon book, The Soul Winner, which we have recently reprinted for the second time, but this one is in a new format with an enlarged typeface.

It consists of 324 pages, and in addition to the regular text, it contains five of Spurgeon's sermons on soul-winning plus fourteen other excerpts from Spurgeon's sermons.

This is a book which "Flounders" like Scott Morgan -- who has been giving away books -- should be putting into the hands of seminary students to help get their minds onto something besides the "born again before faith" Hybrid Calvinism of modern "Reformed" Presbyterians who teach that infants born to believers are "regenerated" as babies.

More information about the new edition is at the following:
