Granted, it's no secret that Calvary Chapel's leadership are, how shall we say, not exactly friendly with the doctrines of grace, but the denomination that's not a denomination has now taken it upon itself to revoke the ordination of Daniel Cassady.
By way of comment...
1. I gather CC claims not to be a "denomination" but a fellowship of churches. However, if that's so, then why is it revoking ordinations based on what is "magisterium" says about the doctrines of grace? What's also interesting to me here is that they organize on recognizably Baptist principles, but then here act remarkably like Presbyterians - or worse, Roman Catholics. Now, the General Baptists in England have been characterized as somewhat "Presbyterian" by some, but, in this day and age, this is rather odd behavior indeed.
2. What's truly sad about this is Brother Daniel was very explicit about his doctrinal beliefs, so they aren't doing this after the fact. Rather, they ordained him knowing full well what he believed.
3. Which gets us to the whole claim that Calvinists are dishonest when entering denominational service or ministry, a charge sometimes leveled by those in Baptist circles. It seems to me that to ordain a man who is up front with you and then revoke his ordination because you later find out he's a Calvinist smacks of one or more of the following: carelessness, ignorance, duplicity. Carelessness because he wasn't ordained just a few days or weeks before you revoked his ordination; ignorance if you read his answers and couldn't see what he was saying about what he affirmed soteriologically, and duplicity if you ordained him knowing his beliefs and thought he'd "shape up" in time.
My advice to Brother Daniel: get involved with a good congregation and bide you time before starting a church on your own. There are many good Baptist(ic) folks out there who affirm the doctrines of grace but have no church home. They could use a good pastor to gather them into a church.
