    1st of all, I am posting this here after inadvertantly posting it on the wrong board. So, I want to ask the moderator here to please DELETE the post over on the "General Baptist" board. This is where it should have been posted.

    Here is the post...

    I wonder what these hucksters are thinking when spewing their false teachings. It is pretty obvious they are in it for the money so are they truly hoping anyone is genuinely saved at one of there meetings or are they just interested in the loot they can carry away?

    I feel bad when a Word of Faith speaker tells something false and a person is watching and believes the falseness, but I am so glad when someone tunes in and hears something biblical. Even if the preacher is only after the money, for Paul says, “But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice. Yes, and I will continue to rejoice, Philippians 1:18.

    Again, though, sad to hear when falseness is preached.

    SAY AGAIN? The RCC and some other Christian denominations teach that the validity of the sacraments does not depend upon the spiritual state of the person officiating.

    But Baptists don't "believe in" the existence of sacraments so I don't understand how, in what terms, this matter can be discussed. Say a Mormon elder should come to a person's door and gives a standard legit Christian sales pitch about believing that Jesus was raised from the dead for his sins. This person doesn't know anything about the Christian or Mormon religions. The person "believes" and "invites Jesus. . . ." Would God recognize the person's conversion?
