  1. Calvin taught "Total Inability" of man or at least that's what his followers like Loraine Boettner taught. Most Calvinists hold that heretical point today. I'm not sure about Calvin himself. Sometimes the followers of a particular theologian/preacher take his teachings farther than he ever intended. I believe the same can be said for John Wesley. I've never read his writings either but I've heard he never explicitly said a saint could lose his salvation only that it appeared so in scripture. But his followers, like in Holiness or Wesleyan churches, have a believer losing their salvation over just about anything such as watching TV or wearing pantyhose. A Baptist pastor friend of mine who was once Holiness told me about this. Anyway, Total Inability is not the same as Total Depravity. Total Inability says that man is so depraved he can't even exercise freewill to believe the gospel.
  2. Yeah, they get worried they may have accidentally walked into a Pentecostal church.
  3. No kidding I have a pastor friend who only officiated funerals and not weddings because he says "they keep longer". Lol
  4. If you won't make any joyful noise to the Lord during worship service and feel uncomfortable by those who do but when you go to the game hollar and jump around with others like the Rapture is about to happen.
  5. I don't see anything in scripture for or against conventions but I do know that any man-made group, organization or body will decline and apostatize over time especially if there's money and resources (which equal power) involved. What's happening in the SBC has nothing to do with "equality" or setting right the wrongs of the past it's just one big monetary shakedown part of the larger picture that's going on in America. If you don't believe that look at the co-founder of BLM who in her fight for "equity" (not equality she already has that) bought four mansions with white fragility money in the whitest neighborhoods she could find.
  6. They are replacing the old time religion with a new age one. They are replacing sinners with racists and the only racists will be whites and blacks who dare leave the progressive plantation.
  7. Yes, the problem is not with the leadership but with the false teachings and worldly philosophies they allowed into the convention pervasive. They've replaced the emphasis on the gospel of Jesus Christ to a social gospel. This is why I like Independent because it's on a smaller level and usually can be dealt with more easily. I Corinthians 11:18-19 18) For first of all, when ye come together in the church, I hear that there be divisions among you; and I partly believe it. 19) For there must be also heresies among you, that they which are approved may be made manifest among you.
  8. Everyone is called, but few chosen. A preacher once said, "God is calling everyone on the phone but only those who pick up are chosen."
  9. "The plain truth is, within the space of our lifetimes, much of what Americans once almost universally abhorred has been packaged, perfumed, gift-wrapped, and sold to us as though it had great value. By skillfully playing on our deeply felt national values of fairness, generosity, and tolerance, these marketers have persuaded us to embrace as enlightened and noble that which all previous generations since America’s founding regarded as grossly self-destructive -– in a word, evil.” David Kupelian -The Marketing of Evil
  10. Yes, they voted to add the book "White Fragility" to the canon of scripture. Reparations are next.
  11. The SBC will split no matter who is in control. Yes, I know it's satire but many realities can be exposed through satire. The SBC has become obsessed with white fragility.
  12. He will lead towards more racial reconciliation. Lol...lol...ROFLOL Just like Obama did. https://babylonbee.com/news/sbc-votes-to-add-white-fragility-to-canon-of-scripture
  13. Yes, I never understood those that insist you have to be one or the other as if there are no other options.
  14. I wasn't suggesting that we appeal to these other so-called authorities they have my point is if we able to somehow they would just resort to some other "scripture" that they have to contradict the one we are using. Multiple authorities. They can't be pinned down. So it's best to just give them the gospel in a nutshell and leave it at that not getting into useless and endless doctrinal debates with gainsayers.
