what kind of calvinist are you

In a previous post; ''A New Fellowship Is Needed'' I said, that due to the election of a staunch Anti- Calvinist, as President, of the SBC, A new fellowship is needed for all Sovereign Grace Baptists. As hopefully made, as that statement was, it is impossible, for there are two kinds of Calvinists; 1. The cold Intellectual [I have found which marks many in the Reformed movement in the SBC] 2. Those with a heart-burning, compassionate Form of Calvinism. The Doctrines of Grace should give fire and an ardent compassion to those who hold to them. That which effects only the head, but not the heart, is worthless, dead, and borders on a legalistic attitude towards those who do not believe the Doctrines. This form earmarks those who will stay within the Convention. They tenaciously hold on to their position, but effect little change in others. I do not want to be associated with that kind of a Calvinist, who are dead from the heart upward. God give us Preachers, who believe in grace, so that they preach and teach with fire and holy boldness the Gospel. Paul W. Foltz DD
