It appears that Louisiana College President, Joe Aguillard is drawing a line into the sand when it comes to Southern Baptist professors who subscribe to so-called Calvinism. Using his “President’s Pen” portion of the college website, Dr. Aguillard says:
“My love for all Baptists, including Calvinists, does not constitute our approval of its being advocated at Louisiana College.”
A number of Calvinist-leaning faculty members have not had their contracts renewed as part of Aguillar’s recent disposition toward Calvinism. It should be noted that this is a new direction for Louisiana College. There has never been such exclusion previously. There is much speculation as to why Aguillard has only recently taken such a hard stand against theological Monergism, most of which I won’t address because I want to be guilty of neither gossip nor presumption. All I know is there are a number of stellar faculty members who can fully subscribe to the Southern Baptist Faith and Message who are now caught in the cross-hairs of a fight they never wanted to be a part of.
So let us pray for Louisiana College and that a belief in God’s sovereignty over salvation not be a cause for division or strife.
Let's STOP the Modern Day Downgrade
“Daily, the work at Pulpit & Pen is filling the void of places where 100 men once stood and that is not an exaggeration. Day in and day out, they tirelessly vet offerings and influence of ministries around the world that they may guard the little sheep from the least to the most damning of errors. This is hard, unappreciative and alienating toil... JD Hall and his contributors such as Seth Dunn, are almost single-handedly leading the way in a rescue attempt of conservative Evangelicalism and especially the Southern Baptist Convention.” -Alex A.
