Burleson helps Pedos?


A young man who is described as a "close follower" of Pastor Wade Burleson's blog for quite awhile has gleefully announced he is heading to a Pedobaptist seminary for ministerial training. Kevin Crowder says the following on Burleson's blog:

Covenant [Seminary], while a strong and conservative PCA [Presbyterian] entity, has approximately 30-40% (don't quote me exactly) of her students from the SBC/Baptist background. I am excited to begin my M.Div. at Covenant.

This is a Reformed Hybrid Calvinist seminary which holds to the "covenant children" heresy, which means that children born to believing parents get "regenerated" in infancy, or even before they are born.
They boast that a large percentage of their students are from the Baptists.

This is where the type of Hybrid Calvinism advocated by Wade Burleson and the Flounders (aka Founders Ministries) often leads -- to the Pedobaptist camp where their "evangelism" is primarily the baptism of babies on the presumption that they are "born again" before, at, or soon after baptism.

We have contended on this blog that if it were not for infant baptism, the Pedobaptist churches would probably soon cease their existence. It is not much of a recommendation for Wade Burleson that one of his longtime "disciples" is going off to the Pedobaptists for studies.

Kevin Crowder's leaving a comment on Ascol’s blog does not make him a disciple.

Another commenter said that he "followed" the blog. Which apparently you do as well.

Are you a disciple of burleson as well?

Since you "follow" the Founders blog, does that make you a disciple of Ascol.

This post illustrates quite well the phrase, “making a mountain out of a mole hill”.


BOB'S REPLY: I noticed that Kevin was applauded by Wade Burleson's father -- which does not speak well of his "Baptist" identity.

The impression I get from the blog is that Crowder's choice of a Pedo school is a wonderful choice, approved and endorsed by Burleson's defenders.
