    Hi Everyone,

    I've known a few Baptists in Australia and they're all great people whose beliefs and theology are pretty close to my own.

    Never the less I know there are very different beliefs and theological underpinnings among Christians. I've visited a number of different Christian forums and found that different beliefs are not just different - they're often polarised to the point of bloody minded tribal fisticuffs.

    I know there are some diverse views on this site also, but from the little I've seen you seem to maintain a little more decorum in your discussions than is the case elsewhere.

    With your indulgence I'd like to stay around a while and talk.

    Welcome to the site. You will notice that some areas will be read only for you and limited to baptists. There is an area open to all.

    I grew up Church of England and became a baptist after my discharge from army as an Anglican Chaplain.

    I came to Canada in 1948 from England and now live in Ontario, Canada..Long time retired though.

    Cheers, and bless,

    Jim

    Yes, the differences there are probably fine enough to give plenty of scope for misunderstanding.

    I sit on the Calvinist side of the fence.

    I was really thinking of dispensation vs covenant and bible versions.
