I wanted to ask if the following are valid reasons for the fear of Calvinism in the SBC. This is a reply I came across to a blog post from several years ago: From our recent discussions obviously #1 and #6 are big reasons for those opposed. I would add that with #1, a lot of that may be due to misunderstanding/mischaracterization of what Cals believe as is seen on here. I did think that #4 was interesting, not sure though how widespread that thought might be though. The biggest one that stood out to me was #5. Is a lot of the fear rooted in power and money? Surely encouragement of deeper study in the scriptures (no matter what the conclusion) wouldn't be suppressed to maintain control of the average church goer?
