    New SS curriculum coming out of SBC's Lifeway Publisher: Will it push calvinism or not?

    See two differing views:

    http://peterlumpkins.typepad.com/peter_lumpkins/2012/01/gospel-project-lifeway-resources-pushes-calvinism-in-latest-bible-study-curriculum-by-peter-lumpkins-trevin-wax-ed-stetzer.html

    Thoughts? What have you heard?

    (Considering much of it hasn't been written yet, and nobody actually knows what it will teach, we can only speculate as to its true contents...but speculation is par for the course around here so let's have at it!)

    Bunch of speculation and worrying...probably about nothing. We owe it to Lifeway to refrain from such things just as they owe it the SBC to hold to historic teachings.

    In the first piece editor Wax reveals that he is an 'Amyraldian' and hints that you may not like his quarterlies if you:


    prefer the expositional approach

    are a Calvinist who believes your soteriological system IS the gospel

    or

    assume the that the Reformed authors will be pushing their soteriology.

    I had to look up "Amyraldism ". :laugh:

    Maybe I'll learn all these terms someday.

    For the poster here who's forever touting the 'Romanian exemplar' of doing church, note that Wax has a "bachelor’s degree in Pastoral Theology from Emanuel University of Oradea in the country of Romania".:applause:

    How many more will pass before they get another to sell? What ever happened to Faith and a host of others?
