It is with great sadness that the Editors of B.A.N.A.S.H. have taken a decision to distance themselves from the Lighthouse Trails Research (LTR) website. Recently they expressed their intention to promote a book entitled "Calvinism, None Dare Call it Heresy". We wrote to the editors of LTR to express our concerns and to graciously outline our personal beliefs. We received a very brief reply, which raised our expectations that a final decision had not been taken on the promotion of this book. However, a few days later they posted their very clear intention to proceed with this divisive action, stating that the many letters of opposition they received had convinced them to proceed with the promotion of this book.
We are grieved in our spirits, not so much with LTR's intention to promote this anti-Calvinist book, but with their approval and publication of letters that demonstrate a slanderous hatred of the godly Calvin's ministry and even more shockingly, express blasphemous opinions of a God who would exercise His sovereignty over a sinners salvation, a truth that is clearly taught throughout all of the Scriptures and a truth that we firmly believe!
Therefore, in order to be faithful to God and His Word, we have no alternative other than to separate from LTR and remove all of our links into their website. We will endeavour to replace the articles removed with alternative sources of information as soon as possible.
