"But I don’t hear very many voices of caution being raised against the dangers of hyper Calvinism, and there are armies of Calvinists out there already challenging the Arminians, so I’ve tried to speak out as much as possible against the tendencies of the hypers."
I am convinced that many in the Reformed Baptist moving are going higher and higher in their 'Calvinism' because of the recent attempts to re-introduce John Gill into Baptist circles, with the attempt to exonerate him of all hyperist charges. More and more are buying into his para-calvinist categories such as the denial of the well-meant offer, and that God desires the salvation of all men.
Sometimes I think folk have forgotten the work of Fuller, Carey and Spurgeon, and how Gillite-hyperism really did debilitate Baptist churches. I think some of these folk are the true revisionists.

My friend Trey Austin (2) (aka TreyFrog) has a new blog called Water From a Rock. He has an excellent post on Calvin v. (Some) Calvinists on the interpretation of 2 Peter 3:9.
Update: He also recently posted on the High Calvinist interpretation of 2 Peter 3:9 that deals with equivocation and a different Jehovah. I originally dealt with the equivocation issue HERE.
