In response to the report “Calvinism on the March,” which I recently republished, a couple of men commented on the statement from a pastor who said that there is an underground of Calvinism at Pensacola Christian College.

Nick Clayton wrote:

“I cannot say with absolute certainty that there are no ‘closet Calvinists’ on campus at PCC.  I can't even say with certainty that, if there are such individuals, they don't ever gather into groups and have theological discussions. What I can say is that, if there are such individuals on campus, the college certainly does not endorse their actions and if their actions came to light, the college would most definitely take action. In fact, the college most definitely HAS taken action in the past against students that were promoting Calvinism on campus. Furthermore, I can dogmatically say that NONE of the Bible/Seminary faculty espouse Calvinism, but are strongly opposed to it.”Marc Monte wrote:

“Thanks for your timely article on Calvinism.  I fully concur that Calvinism is a serious problem in both evangelicalism and fundamentalism.  The evidence is overwhelming:  Calvinism is indeed on the march. I would, however, like to correct one assertion made by one of your contributors.  He claimed that there is a Calvinist ‘underground’ at Pensacola Christian College.  As a graduate of the seminary and adjunct faculty member, let me assure you that there is no Calvinist underground at PCC.  In a large institution like PCC, there may arise from time to time isolated incidences of Calvinism--particularly from among the diverse members of the student body. I know for an absolute fact that Dr. Horton deals swiftly and decisively with anyone promoting Calvinistic ideas on campus. ... Pensacola Christian College does not knowingly tolerate Calvinism in its student body or faculty.”   

Tisha Martin wrote:

“Being a student at Pensacola Christian College, I was here when that faculty member told his Bible class students he believed in Calvinism, ‘but don't tell anyone,’ he said. Students who were privy to that bit of information told me firsthand. It was a few short days later, and the Bible teacher was dismissed. He is no longer here. I know Dr. Mullenix teaches against Calvinism, and if the college students discuss it among each other, he will mention that there should be no talk about it. ... Granted, there are students who attend who are Calvinists, but they are discouraged and warned not to talk of it to other students.”
