Following his 2013 Strange Fire Conference John MacArthur said, “The resurgence of Reformed Theology… is the greatest revival in the history of the church, clearly.” This should cause all Bible-believing Baptists to take notice. While independent Baptists are busy planting churches, the Calvinist/Reformed system is finding its way into the libraries of our young pastors and then into their pulpits. This requires a Biblical response. As Dr. Laurence Vance has said, “The final authority for a Calvinist is not the Bible at all—it is Reformed Theology.” In this series Pastor Jim Alter examines the roots of Calvinist/Reformed Theology and gives a biblical response to its errors.
