Of course, these young men are not convinced of their Calvinistic beliefs by the hard study of scripture and dealing with the grammatical details of the biblical text. No, Hughie implies that they are enamored by intellectual, university level training and the desire to “fit” in with the new Calvinistic trends set by such men as John Piper. In fact, if you want everyone in your church to believe in Calvinism, just introduce Piper’s books to the congregation and they will quickly succumb to his teachings on the subject.
Hughie has written a garment rending lamentation that is posted at David Cloud’s, Way of Strife,.. er, Life, website telling of how a BJU trained associate pastor managed to take over Hughie’s former Baptist church with the doctrines of Calvinism. Go and read it, then come back tomorrow to read my version of similar circumstances, but from a different perspective.
