This topic is mainly for members or former members of SBC churches. I've known a few men (preachers in these cases) who, after developing "Calvinstic" theology or belief in the "doctrines of grace," left the Southern Baptist Convention. But it appears to me that most "Calvinistic" or "Reformed" Southern Baptists tend to stay within the Convention. From my vantage point (non-SBC), it appears that some of the purposes, programs, and dominant "Arminian" theology of the SBC would be incompatible with their Calvinstic theology. I realize that Calvinism was the dominant theology when the SBC was formed, but many changes have taken place since that time. To me it also seems that the "Reformed" theology is overall more conservative than the average SBC theology. Just wondering what it looks like from the SBC perspective. If you are Calvinistic or Reformed and are currently in the SBC, why do you stay? If you are Calvinistic or Reformed and have left the SBC, why did you leave?
