Southern Baptist "evangelists" lament recovery of Calvinism in the SBC
How is this not some guys concerned the times have outgrown interest in their services?
The "evangelists" in lament are the traveling sort, the gentlemen who preach revivalistic, invitational sermons in different churches. The days of scheduled revivals and traveling evangelists are coming to a close (for better or worse, that's not my point). They are blaming Calvinism.
I don't know many SBC churches that still employ the services of an "evangelist." I don't know any SBC churches that could be classified as "a Calvinist church."
This is simply more fearmongering.
The sobering truth is, the young guys who are coming out of the seminaries with a Reformed soteriology are also the guys most eager to plant churches, forge missional communities (that would be "evangelism," btw), and preach the unadulterated Gospel.
Let's keep stamping them out, by all means. See where that gets us.
