I just browsed through JD's Twitter feed and man my heart sank. It is filled with vitriol and there is a void of any kind of Christian love. I even saw one of my old friends, Justin Peters, has joined his ilk--and that made me sick as well. No wonder the unbelieving world still doesn't believe.

Too bad there is not a way to get JD flagged for approaching a minor in the manor that he did. It also baffles me how JD can forget about his duty as a Christian and devote so much time to Ergun. Devotion belongs to God--not chasing supposed liars. Good read Peter!

Josh--if it is not abundantly clear to you in 2 Peter 3:9 that God desires ALL--meaning everyone without an exception--maybe you should try the following verses: Ezek. 18:23, 32; 33:11 John 3:16 Acts 17:30 Rom. 11:32 I Tim. 2:4,6; 4:10 Titus 2:11 Heb. 2:9 I John 2:2 There is only one truth--there cannot be more than one. God desires for all men to be saved.

Wow! Peter this is absolutely shocking! Who do these men think they are?! I believe they are usurping Christ's role of judging the heart!

Ed, you said above: "If you want division, you got it, even if the Bible forbids division." Well since you want to cherry pick verses to try and make a stand on something let me try it. Jesus said that He did not come to bring peace, but a sword. What is a sword used for? Jesus was the first one that was a divider. Why? Simple He stood for truth. Do you believe that Jesus is the only way to Heaven? If so, then you have caused division amongst those that believe all roads lead to Heaven. Do you believe that Jesus is God's Son? If so, again you have divided yourself. Your rhetoric is atrocious. You can look for proof verses all that you want and believe that they are saying what you think they are--but in the end it is simply your opinion. Truth isn't based on a single verse but rather on the whole context of all of the scriptures together. Have a blessed day brother.

All this name change does is allow for deception. All of those who complained that "Southern Baptist" was offensive to people will have the "offense" compounded when those "offended" find out they have been deceived. How will they be deceived? When SBC'ers tell people they are GCB not SBC, so that there is no offense offered, the persons will be more offended when they find out all along that they were indeed SBC'ers just posing under a new name! Oh what a tangled convention we've received now that 53% voted to deceive.

Eric, Why is that you think this document is semi-pelagian? After reading all of the different blogs that you have attacked commentors/bloggers with this terrible label I ask, why do you have to be so rude? The author himself answered and said that the article in question is NOT semi-pelagian. If you think that it is then you are free to think that. But then you would also have to believe that the BFM 2000 is also semi-pelagian as the language from article three in the BFM 2000 is almost verbatim to that in article two in the "Traditional" statement. So, with what little I have said; Why don't you go ask Dr. Mohler why he is a semi-pelagian since he was on the committee that drafted the BFM 2000. You want Scripture to back-up why it is not semi-pelagian? Here ya go: Genesis 3:15-24; 6:5; Deuteronomy 1:39; Isaiah 6:5, 7:15-16;53:6; Jeremiah 17:5,9, 31:29-30; Ezekiel 18:19-20; Romans 1:18-32; 3:9-18, 5:12, 6:23; 7:9; Matthew 7:21-23; 1 Corinthians 1:18-25; 6:9-10;15:22; 2 Corinthians 5:10; Hebrews 9:27-28; Revelation 20:11-15 The very Scripture that the drafters used in forming the "Traditional" document. I understand that no one has answered your question the way you want it answered. But the truth is no one will ever answer it to your liking...you simply just don't like the document...and that is fine. Stop falsely accusing this document, and its signatories, as heretics. I look forward to hearing about your conversation with Mohler, though I doubt you will have the backbone to ask him! Blessings from a young man who denies that Adam’s sin resulted in the incapacitation of any person’s free will or rendered any person guilty before he has personally sinned. While no sinner is remotely capable of achieving salvation through his own effort, we deny that any sinner is saved apart from a free response to the Holy Spirit’s drawing through the Gospel. -Jon
