I do not want to derail the subject on another thread . Chafer started Dallas Theological Seminary and is noted for his 8-volume systematic . Here I will give a Benjamin B. Warfield quote about Chafer . This in reference to his alleged Calvinism . I had said he was a quasi-Calvinist . That might have been too generous on my part . He might have considered himself as a Calvinist , but I think it was more along Norm Geiseler's " Moderate Calvinism " . ( There is no way that Geisler qualifies as even a moderate Calvinist -- if such an animal exists . ) BBW's quote is found in George Marsden's : " Fundamentalism and American Culture " ( p. 98 ) ... the Keswick teacher was plagued by two inconsistent systems of religion struggling together in his mind . One was Calvinist , so that he and his coterie of evangelists and Bible teachers often spoke of God's grace doing all ; but behind this Calvinist exterior lurked the spectres of Pelagius , Arminius , and Wesley , all of whom made God's gracious working subject to human determination . [ The combination was -- Rip ] at once curiously pretentious and curiously shallow .
