 What?

Okay, a VERY dear friend of mine has been posting some topics on his blog lately about what he believes. He said he was a "Reformed Southern Baptist Calvinist." What exactly does this mean? What do Calvinists believe and how does it differ from the Southern Baptist point of view? I get the whole reformed part, but not the Calvinist part. I've heard of Calvinism but never really delved into what they believe. Now that my friend is calling himself a Southern Baptist Calvinist, I feel I need to know about this. Can anyone direct me to a website, or just respond on here and help me out? Thanks SI!

 Re: What?

Maybe these will give you a better understanding...

[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reformed_Baptist]wikipedia - reformed baptist[/url]

[url=http://www.spurgeon.org/~phil/dabney/5points.htm]Spurgeon's Five Points of Calvanism[/url]

[url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Calvinism]wikipedia - calvanism[/url]

Although, I try to stay away from these types of theology... they can be very argumentative!

And I found that some actually put more 'faith' in a belief system than they actually put into the God of their faith but that's just my experience with it and people!

God bless you,

 Re:

The Southern Baptist Convention was originally founded with a firm belief in the Calvinistic understanding of salvation, and there is currently a strong movement within the SBC to return to those roots.

Spurgeon's explanation that Lysa posted will be very helpful in trying to understand the beliefs.

 Re:

i would say many go off on calvinism, but i would say it is an interpretation of what John Calvin saw in scripture to be true and know some who believe it and their our scriptures to justify it but their our some that don't.
