    From a Southern Seminary chapel this Spring:

    "Our sermons should never smack of parties - Anglican, Calvinist, Amillennial - rather our sermons should be obviously Biblical....avoiding labels, sticking with the text....so the powerful attraction becomes not membership in your party, but faithfulness to God's Word and its truth."

    One can understand the advice to tone down the Calvinism and the Amillennialism (it's SBTS after all) but...the Anglicanism? Why would that be an issue for Baptist seminarians?

    It's not but by including the Anglicans, the speaker can claim at least some neutrality.
