    1. Here are both an indirect and direct quote from Dr. Mohler on the budding interesting among younger Southern Baptists in Reformed Theology:

    "Mohler said a deepening interest in theology is driving younger Southern Baptists to explore Reformed thinking, and he dismisses the fear of some that the budding Calvinist wing will tilt the SBC back toward its 19th-century anti-missionary movement.

    "Southern Baptists are not going to accept any theology that would in any way reduce our evangelistic zeal or missions commitment," Mohler said."

    Great quote. I completely agree. :)

    While I'm not nearly as Reformed as others, the argument that Calvinism leads to diminished evangelistic zeal is a poor one. From what I've seen in many of our SBC churhces there is little that could lead to less evangelistic zeal than personal apathy.

    should make for good conversation around here...;)

    "The totality of history shows the vast majority of Baptists have not been [Calvinists], so why go back to the founders?" Page said. "I think we need to go back to the Bible."
