Easily offended HybridsTHE HYBRID CALVINISTS SEEM
TO BE EASILY OFFENDED
It has been rather amusing lately to read some of the piffle by the Flounders-types who are obviously rather easily offended by any who do not welcome them with a "Hail fellow well met."
On Peter Lumpkins' blog, there have been complaints posted by some which alleged that some Hybrid Calvinists such as the Flounders and Pedobaptist R. C. Sproul's Ligonier company were not permitted to secure space to exhibit their products at the John 3:16 Conference at First Baptist Church, Woodstock, Georgia.
Also, on Flounder Timmy Brister's blog he is reporting that Pastor Voddie Baucham is evidently whining about some Southern Baptists who have an "anti-Calvinist" attitude toward him.
This is all very amusing and paradoxical to me. It reminds me of how Alexander Campbell and the Campbellites reacted to the Baptists in the 19th century when Baptists began to declare non-fellowship for Campbell and his so-called "reformation" movement among Baptists.
Baucham says he is "fire-breathing" Calvinist, and he affiliates with, and speaks for, the Flounders, and he evidently endorses the Pedobaptist Reformed and Hardshell Baptist heresy of "regeneration before faith." Why does Baucham gripe when Southern Baptists don't welcome him with open arms?
As for the Flounders, they have declared the SBC to be an "unregenerate denomination," and they have sought to "reform" Southern Baptist pastors in Florida by sending them a Pedobaptist DVD which teaches the Pedobaptist heresy of "regeneration before faith."
Might as well let the Hardshell Baptists who teach "born again before faith" secure space to exhibit their products as to let the Flounders exhibit. Might as well let the Campbellites exhibit as to let Sproul's Ligonier company which advocates the Pedobaptist heresy about "baby regeneration."
I would think that any Bible-believing Baptist church or conference would -- and should -- refuse to allow any group to exhibit their products if they taught the heresies of "born again before faith" and/or the alleged "regeneration of babies" such as taught by the Pedobaptist Reformed parties.
It's a free country, and those who hold to the Pedobaptist Reformed heresies are free to use whatever means they wish to spread their propaganda, but it does not seem "cricket" to expect Baptists to accommodate them at Baptist-sponsored meetings.
