Some have called into question the need for a statement by Dr. Eric Hankins concerning our soteriology. Well after listening to the radio show of a professor that is paid by our Cooperative Program (CP) funds there should be no further questions.
James White, who teaches J-Terms at Golden Gate Baptist Theological Seminary, recently posted a radio show where he castigated the soteriology of the majority of Southern Baptist. White publicly implied that the majority of Southern Baptists do not embrace Christianity. He also implies that his theology is the same as Dr. Al Mohler. White went as far to say the majority of Southern Baptists could not distinguish between Justification and Sanctification.
With that in mind, James White is espousing the Calvinism that is prevalent in the leadership of Southern Baptists. We have a man that is being paid with CP funds castigating Southern Baptists that do not ascribe to Calvinism as Arminians. It appears we, once again, have CP paid professors and seminaries teaching and promoting a theological position as a primary distinctive. This primary distinctive is being paid for by Baptists that do not believe the teaching. If one wants to know the kind of Calvinism that is being promoted and taught by our professors and seminaries in the SBC one needs look no further than Alpha and Omega Ministries.
