He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things?" - Romans 8:32

Your Pastor Might Be a Dirty SBC Calvinist If...

5. He goes to an unreached people group at age 23, translates the Scriptures into their language, spurs the founding of 100 churches, and the salvation of over 8,000 believers as he spends virtually his entire life with them, like Adoniram Judson.

4. He trusts the power of God’s Word and sovereignty so much that he reads his sermons from a manuscript like Jonathan Edwards and sinners grab their pews for fear of tumbling into hell; and they cry out to God in repentance and faith. Oh, and he is used by God in a historic Great Awakening.

3. He frequently weeps while preaching his sermons for he knows that his lost hearers refuse to weep for themselves, like George Whitefield.

2. He has as much passion for the lost as William Carey, believing God has set him apart to reach the heathen; and he seeks to go where no one else will, without the funds to accomplish the task, without a strategy, simply because he believes the gospel of Christ is for the nations, not just the west.

1. He trains God-fearing missionaries like John Calvin, sends them back to their hostile homelands, and they then see millions profess Christ within a few years; and these professors exhibit the fruit of the Spirit in the face of physical harm.

It’s time to smoke out the dirty Calvinists in the S.B.C. After all, the Lord knows that the S.B.C. does not need men that have the same evangelistic foundation as Adoniram Judson, Jonathan Edwards, George Whitefield, William Carey, or John Calvin; or any other godly Calvinist in history. God knows we’re the largest evangelical denomination in the U.S.
