More Blundering From BristerBrother Bob Ross has uncovered this jewel from Timmy Brister, a troubled blogger whose capacity to "bend" the truth seems to hold no bounds. Brister says that the SBC would be improved by putting more people like him in leadership. ROFL!
Several months ago I issued a challenge to Brister which has gone unanswered. Now it seems he has crawled out from under his rock to take more pot shots at Southern Baptists while at the same time attending a Southern Baptist seminary paid for by the very churches he thinks are in need of

IS THIS AN ULTIMATUM BY SBTS STUDENT BLOGGER?
If the Southern Baptist Convention is going to see churches revitalized, old churches replanted, and new church plants embraced, then they are going to have to extend the right hand of fellowship to the young Calvinists exiting the seminary with a willingness to be taught and led from God’s Word. . . . Finally, the Convention at large is going to have to develop a consensus on the gospel that embraces “five-point Calvinists” and encourages guys like me, not discourages us, to pursue pastorates in existing churches.
These are excerpts, Charles, from Timmy Brister's blog (Provocations and Paintings), and it sounds to me like an ultimatum -- Make room for the Hybrid form of "Calvinism" if the SBC wants to prosper.
In addition to Brister, if I understand Tom Ascol of the Flounders correctly, he is promoting the idea that "reformation" [meaning, reforming according to Hybrid Calvinism] must precede any real expectation for revival.
So, it seems, Charles that whatever is needed by the
Southern Baptist Convention (which the Flounders have already declared to be "an unregenerate denomination") will be forthcoming if the Convention will "reform" to Hybrid Calvinism and install young SBTS Hybrid Calvinist graduates as pastors.
