Radon Thoughts: A thought on R. Scott Clark's definiton of "Reformed"

R. Scott Clark correctly took the stand that credo baptists are not Reformed. Of course, it's the total package that makes that true and credo baptism is just one symptom of a much larger problem. Even the 1689 London Baptist Confession of Faith is simply the Westminster Confession of Faith with deletions where Baptists disagree with the Reformed position. Anyone examining modern calvinistic Baptists can see that they have more in common with their "Baptist" brothers than with the genuinely Reformed theology of traditional Calvinism. Take a long look at Paul Washer, John MacArthur, John Piper, Albert Mohler and others and you'll note numerous points of departure from the Reformed confessional theology as it is outlined in the Westminster Standards and the Three Forms of Unity. I could add the Anglican Formularies to that as well since the English Reformation was Calvinist, not Lutheran.

You'll also be interested to note that Scott Clark makes several comments beneath the article defending his position. It's too bad that Scott Clark's denomination effectively put the muzzle on his outspoken internet presence. When the Gospel is at stake one wonders why professional theologians and ministers of the Gospel prefer to protect their job security rather than preach the truth of the Gospel.
