Will Tom Nettles Leave Southern Seminary?Tom Ascol is reporting on his blog that Tom Nettles, professor at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, will visit Grace Baptist Church in Cape Coral on May 4-6 in view of a call to become the Associate Pastor.
Since Brother Nettles is a ringleader of the "born again before faith" hybrid/hyper/extreme/neo Calvinist movement, he will fit right in as Brother Ascol's associate pastor.
The surprise announcement makes me wonder: Is Dr. Nettles being "encouraged" to leave Southern Seminary? Did anyone "lean on" Dr. Mohler to get rid of Nettles?
The seminary has been under fire from many SBC leaders for its unSBC-like devotion to Reformed theology, with Nettles being the most visible and noted Southern professor.
Brother Bob Ross and I have written about Nettles and his theology. See,
