Peter,

One wise man once said, “Perhaps nobody has changed the course of history as much as the historians.” Peter thank you for this great gem! It is a historical marker in SBC life! I appreciate your ability to read the “fine print” in the footnotes.

Blessings!

Thanks Ron. What's more interesting is Kerfoot's stunning rejection of Boyce's federal theology, with a personal note about a conversation he had with John Broadus revealing Broadus' rejection of federal theology as well!

With that, I am...

All,

Just to be clear: in footnote #3 above, I was not implying Founders has not mentioned Kerfoot's 1899 edit. They obviously did at least twice in the links I provided above. Instead my point was while they acknowledge Kerfoot edited Boyce's textbook, no place I could find exists where they so much as hint Kerfoot dissented from much less outright rejected Boyce's strict Calvinism.

With that, I am...
Peter

Interesting, interesting stuff, Peter. It's always amazing how the facts just kind of blows up the illusions of people; especially those people, who try to rewrite history.

Thanks David. I thoroughly take pleasure in rummaging through historical documents, especially when those documents have apparently been overlooked by others. I am a geniune southern born and breed American Picker!

Paul

It seems David Platt believes repentance and faith at least logically precede regeneration. Here's a quote of his--

So how can a man be born again? Scripture resounds with a clear answer to that question.
Two primary words: repent and believe

I got this from a PDF of the sermon he gave off of radical.net, the link to the PDF said--

—Click here to get the PDF of the full manuscript of pastor David’s sermon at the SBC Pastor’s Conference on June 18, 2012. The sermon is titled, “Spiritual Deception, Biblical Conversion, and Global Mission.”

You can read the quote from him in context there

John K.

Paul, at the gospel project breakfast this summer, the panelists discussed this issue. Platt seemed clear that regeneration comes first logically but it all happens at the same time.

Peter,

Interesting. You are mistaken concerning just about everything.

peter lumpkins

Hi 'Alasdair'

Well, if I am mistaken concerning just about everything, were I you, I wouldn't spend another nanosecond on this site. No wait! I'm probably mistaken about that too!

Alasdair Tavernake

Not to worry. I will not be back. It is a bunch of garbage. You sir are a foolish boy.

peter lumpkins

Hi "Alasdair"

Yes indeedy. It took me going on 62 years to become the "foolish boy" I am. But given my trust is in a marvelously gracious God, there remains hope for me.

Wishing you the best.

With that, I am...
Peter
