    You all seem to spend most of your time deciding whom God should send to Hell.

    Not when you are dealing with heretics and the heretical! I don't know if you noticed it or not but the name of this forum is "Other Christian Denominations." It is designed to debate, discuss and argue differences not get together and sing cum by ya.

    Is not the Bible the Word of God? Is not this passage a 2 edged sword?

    Acts 5
    33 When they heard this, they were furious and wanted to put them to death. 34 But a Pharisee named Gamaliel, a teacher of the law, who was honored by all the people, stood up in the Sanhedrin and ordered that the men be put outside for a little while. 35 Then he addressed the Sanhedrin: “Men of Israel, consider carefully what you intend to do to these men. 36 Some time ago Theudas appeared, claiming to be somebody, and about four hundred men rallied to him. He was killed, all his followers were dispersed, and it all came to nothing. 37 After him, Judas the Galilean appeared in the days of the census and led a band of people in revolt. He too was killed, and all his followers were scattered. 38 Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. 39 But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.”

    First, those you give as an example are lost people.

    Second, this forum is designed to contend for the faith not roll over and play dead.

    Third, Pollyanna positive only Christianity may be good for building up the saints and reaching the lost but is disobedience when dealing with heresies and heretics.

    But why is most every thread under "Other Christian Denominations" about bad mouthing every one but the right kind of Baptist? Where are the threads for finding good in non-Baptist denominations?

    If you think I treat the majority of "Baptists" any different than I do "non-Baptist denominations" you really are misinterpreting me. The term "Baptist" is just another generic title that has every heresy under the sun under that general unbrella. The term "Baptists" mean nothing to me, it is just another meaningless name in most cases. Hersesy and heretics hide under that titlle as much as any other title.
