    I have been a Christian since the summer of 1962. I have yet to find any one Bible teacher that I can agree with on all points (100%). All secondary issues.

    I have a few that I find highly led by the Lord in their teachings. And I read them and refer to them.

    But even with my faves, I find that every now and again, I have to say, "What?!?!?"

    So no......no man or woman who writes uninspired teachings is 100% on the mark.

    I agree and this is not related to Christ but to others... Brother Glen:)

    2 Timothy 2: 7 Consider what I say; and the Lord give thee understanding in all things.

    Of course, no one in their right mind would agree 100% with any Bible Teachers, preachers, authors. But Charles H. Spurgeon viewed someone whom he shared almost complete doctrinal harmony.

    "The longer I live, the clearer does it appear that John Calvin's system is the nearest to perfection."

    "Among all those who have been born of women, there has not risen a greater than John Calvin."

    "The doctrine which I preach is that of the Puritans : it is the doctrine of Augustine, the doctrine of Paul, the doctrine of the Holy Ghost."

    If you think about it, that is really just "name dropping". Spurgeon did not believe (or, if he did he hid it from his congregation) many of Calvin's ideas expressed in the Institutions (for example, the role of the Church, the role of government, the covenantal kinship between circumcision and baptism). He also did not preach what Augustine held (Augustine's view of the Cross quickly comes to mind).

    What do you know about Primitive Baptists? If you haven’t studied it, then no because your woefully deficient in your edu concerning people have been around before modern Baptists, so sorry to point that out… correct me if I’m wrong.

    I have not read any of John Calvin. Even though, I would loosly, agree with the total depravity and the perseverance of the saints. Techically I do not agree with Calvinism on it's five points.

    I know that they are a 19th Century denomination that began in Georgia. I know they separated from other Baptists primarily over Calvinism and mission organizations.

    Primitive Baptists are called "primitive" not because they are an older Baptist sect but because they viewed non-Calvinistic Baptists as a newer sect (in reality, non-Calvinistic Baptists existed before Calvinistic Baptists).

    And I know that they do not like being called "Calvinists", so I used "Calvinistic".

    And I know they have been declining while Missionary Baptists (their theological rival) has grown.

    I was going to say the Apostle Paul, but figured it would be perceived negatively.

    peace to you
