Mark Dever is (or was) a slobbering five point Calvinist
Though acknowledging about his church that he doesn't "for a moment care if they call themselves Calvinists" but instead cares whether they are Christ's disciples, Capital Hill Baptist Church pastor and founder of 9Marks, Mark Dever, reportedly said in a two-decade old Baptist Press article (7/30/96) he was a "slobbering five-point Calvinist."
I describe myself to my congregation, though not on Sunday mornings, as a slobbering five-point Calvinist...
I wonder if Dr. Dever is as publicly embolden concerning being a self-described slobbering five point Calvinist today as he was 20 years ago.
What is more, could Dever's emboldenness about Calvinism then be causally related, at least in some measure, to the continued conflict over Calvinism in the Southern Baptist Convention now?
