This tends to confirm my thoughts on the emerging trend of many soteriologic calvinistic Baptistic churches to find common ground with southern Presbyterians. And the southern Presbyterians return the favor by joining hands in dozens of conferences. Since there is no sacramental unity, this marriage is bound to occur.
Calvin’s understanding of what constitutes a healthy Reformed church is a more biblical model:
“Wherever we see the Word of God purely preached and heard, and the sacraments administered according to Christ’s institution, there, it is not to be doubted, a church of God exists. … If it has the ministry of the Word and honors it, if it has the administration of the sacraments, it deserves without doubt to be held and considered a church. For it is certain that such things are not without fruit” (Calvin, Institutes, IV.i.9).
