The Other Side of Calvinism
Calvinism and the Baptists
by Dr. Laurence M. Vance
The following is from Dr. Laurence M. Vance’s excellent recently revised work entitled, “The Other Side of Calvinism.” This definitive work is a 800-page treatment of the theological system known as Calvinism. It is extensively footnoted.
The controversy over Calvinism among the Baptists calls for special attention. Not only has this debate raged among the Baptists for hundreds of years, the greatest exponents of Calvinism today are not the Presbyterian or Reformed but the Baptists. The fact that a Baptist says he is not a Calvinist means nothing, for the Baptists, more than any other Calvinists, when seeking to draw attention away from the name of Calvin, use the phrase “Doctrines of Grace” as a metaphor for Calvinism.105 Another term used by Baptists is “Sovereign Grace.”106 The term “grace” by itself is also used to stand for the doctrines of Calvinism.107 One Calvinistic Baptist even wrote a book called Grace Not Calvinism.108 But just as was pointed out previously, if Calvinism is the doctrine of grace found in the Bible then this implies that if you disagree with Calvinism then you are denying salvation by grace. Some Calvinistic Baptists get downright offended when they are accused of being Calvinists. Joseph Wilson, the former editor of a Calvinistic Baptist newspaper, went on record as saying:
NOT CHOSEN TO SALVATION
An Answer to David Nettleton‟s Book “Chosen To Salvation”
A VERSE-BY-VERSE EXAMINATION OF SCRIPTURE THAT EXPOSES THE FALSE DOCTRINE
OF PREDESTINATION AND ILLUMINATES THE FREE WILL AND RESPONSIBILITY OF MAN.
