Robin Years ago I came upon that quote by Spurgeon on the Reformed Reader site myself. As much as I am a big fan of Spurgeon, like all Christians all quotes like that just prove he was human and as such was prone to error. I don't know the full cont

Haha, my goodness... I'm embarrassed that so many Baptists can be so arrogant as to claim roots preceding the Reformation. Refer to the London Baptist Confession and you find it identical to the Westminster Confession except for: The hermeneutic, &

Thank you for the response and the links that I will certainly get into this week,.. and for the correction in the titled spelling by myself, the audio on the link I was referring to was not as clear as it could have been.

Thanks for the links. That clears things up for me. And just for giggles, I would agree with Lee Gatiss' view. Oh, I thought I might add something which some prof I had at one of the 3 seminaries I studied at taught me in regard to sermon preparati

Ah..... spoken like a true Baptist! But unfortunately, Spurgeon's statement is most surely bias, exclusionary and without warrant. But to run with his statement that Baptists "...have an unbroken line up to the apostles themselves." it isn

I believe that we can all trace our roots especially as being of the Reformed camp to the time of the Reformation, and historically to the teachings of Augustine, but I have heard and read from a site, I think from an old Boice site, that they are pr

Although I identify myself as a Baptist, there are issues that I think are not worth discussing. I believe the claim that Baptists are descendants of John the Baptist is actually arigantly saying that no other denomination can make that claim. I woul

Thank you, I as well have heard that some Baptist make the claim that they are of the ''true religion'' based on or from the link with John the Baptizer, I heard as well that there was no need to be reformed because they were before the Reformation,
