How Alexander Campbell
Relates to the
Heresy of Decisional Regeneration

alexander campbell Alexander Campbell's (1788-1866) view of saving faith was close to that of John Locke ... the"bare faith" that Christ is Messiah and was raised from the dead. The intellectual assent to the truth of the Gospel for Campbell was to be exhibited in water baptism, considered the moment of regeneration. Campbell took thousands of converts from Baptist churches he previously communed with. Campbell's Millenial Harbinger constantly ridiculed Baptist, New Light Calvinist and Methodist views of the necessity for supernatural regeneration and the indwelling of the Holy Spirit in salvation. Campbellism salvation is based on the PRESUMPTION of implicit faith as saving faith.
