There have been several instances in my area over the past 10 years, of pastoral candidates who were 5-point Calvinists and were less than fully honest about their views when talking to the pulpit committee at their prospective church. Most of these guys were called, but in every case there was a blowout within a year or two, resulting in a disaster for the preacher and the church. In most cases, these men took advantage of pulpit committees composed of lay people who know the Bible, but who lacked the theological sophistication to understand, for example, that when the pastoral prospect said that he believed in the Doctrines of Grace," he was saying that he was a 5-point Calvinist! In the Air Force, we considered such quibbling to be equal to lying. Our definition of quibbling was that if you as me a question about anything, but that you, due to technical ignorance or some other reason, don't ask the question properly, then I am bound to clarify the situation to help you get the answer you SHOULD be asking for. Have any of you been on either end of this type of a situation? I am curious to see how widespread this is.
