    Let's not because it's not true.

    Obviously John the baptizer (as Chuck Swindoll is careful to say) is not a Baptist. (In fact, it is not clear that he was even trinitarian).

    The group of Jewish leaders that dominate the Christian church and direct it's doctrine in Acts 15 are certainly not Baptist.

    But the practice of Baptism - of believer's baptism DOES go back to the days of John the baptizer - to be sure.

    Infant baptism - praying to the dead, purgatory, magic sacraments that have the power to turn bread into God etc -- those errors came long after John the baptizer - many centuries later.

    In Christ,

    Bob
