A Response To Calvinists' Calls For Unity



Now that Traditional Baptists have gotten together to organize responses to the insurgency of Calvinism into Traditional Baptist churches, they are attempting to portray themselves as taking a "high road" and appealing for unity. Where have I heard this tactic before? Oh yeah, that's the same tactic that Moderate Baptists tried to stem the tide of the Conservative Resurgence.

I appreciate their calls for unity. Unfortunately as long as one group is trying to "reform" Traditional SBC churches, there can be no unity. Traditional Baptists have not compromised the unity; we have revealed an already existing fracure in unity..

When Calvinists make a conscious decision not to go into Traditional SBC churches and try to reform them to Calvinism, then there can be unity. The ball is in their court.

When the Calvinists screech unity what they're really saying is shut up and get out of the way.

You can't scream "unity" and then call everyone who disagrees with you a heretic, stupid and a liar for you're expereiences with Calvinists.

You can't scream "unity" while declaring it's perfectly acceptable for the SBC to have Calvinists Seminaries.

Will it be accetable for Trads to not fund those seminaries anymore or will Trads be attacked for such disunity?

You can't scream "unity" and then deny the evidence that NAMB is planting Calvinists churches.

"unity" and "divisive" are like the word racist - those words are used to silence critics by shaming them.

So what you are saying is that there is disunity and it is someone else's fault?

Scott,

Any disunity between Calvinists and non-Calvinists in the SBC is due to Calvinists' attempt to reform Traditional Baptist churches. How is this unclear?
