apples and oranges

Yes, Dave and Baptists range from being Five Point Calvinists to being out and out Pelagians.


The Baptist Church does not have a strong denominational structure and they are generally congregational in out look. The only unifying distinctive is that they practice Believer's Baptism as opposed to infant baptism. The great English Baptist, John Gill, described infant baptism as an invention of and pillar to Romanism.

It could be said because of the Baptist Church's rejection of infant baptism and rejection of the union of Church and State that we Baptists are the most thoroughly reformed body of Christians anywhere, totally free of popish errors. Can the Presbyterian Church with its infant baptism and ties to the Scottish Government make such a claim?

For those who have faith, no explanation is neccessary.
For those who have no faith, no explanation is possible.

St. Thomas Aquinas

If one turns his ear from hearing the Law, even his prayer is an abomination. Proverbs 28:9
