To my right was Roy Fish, Professor of Evangelism at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. To my left was a seasoned veteran of evangelism. Both of these well-dressed men seemed enthusiastic about the event. Both of them had previously been asked to serve in this same capacity many times. I had not. Why was I so disinterested?
Each group (Generals and Particulars) became known for their view of the atonement of Christ. The Particular Baptists held to a “particular redemption” or limited atonement. The General Baptists were more Arminian and held to a “universal” or general atonement by which Christ died for all sinners and those who believe in Jesus will be saved.
Happy belated birthday Billy! We at SBC Today and Connect 316 are thankful for all of the souls that have been saved by God through your ministry! Thank you for all of the altar calls, the sinner’s prayers, and the sharing of the gospel with all of the whosoevers. Happy 96th Birthday!
