I have really been blessed by "meeting," and corresponding here with all of you. Thank you for that. I have found it hard to remain proper in my role here since men read here. In addition I realized recently that I cannot support Baptist doctrine. We just left a Baptist church due to gross immorality. And I am praying for a Bible practicing church for us. But, what I have read here and seen in the various Baptist churches I have been in makes me realize that I cannot support Baptist doctrine. If my husband leads us to another Baptist church than I will be one. These are the things which I see here and in the Baptist churches I have been a member of that I cannot support: Feminism (1 Timothy 2:9-15, 1 Corinthians 14:34-36) Immodesty and lack of concern for making a brother stumble, (1 Timothy 2:9-15, 1 Peter 3, Isaiah 47:2-3) Lack of teaching and modeling gender distinction in clothing and behavior, (Dueteronomy 22:5, Titus 2:3-5) Children taken out from the authority of the parents and taught by others, ( Dueteronomy 6, Ephesians 5) Divorce statistics amongst the saved as high as the unsaved, (1 John 3:10) Adultery and fornication and the lack of church discipline, (Matthew 18, 1 Cor 6) An attitude that children are a burden not a blessing, (Psalm 127, Psalm 128) A lack of Titus two teaching, instead encouragement to women to work in careers and "ministries." (Titus 2:3-5) I thought that I could remain a Baptist while wearing a headship veiling as a symbol of my submission to my husband. But, instead I have been mocked, and told that women who wear this are legalistic, and do not bring glory to their husbands, but rather that women who flaunt their bodies and hair before other men are the ones who bring glory to God. It is evident here and in the Baptist churches that we have been a part of that it is seen as more holy to flaunt one's hair and body before other men and God than to keep it as a special part of a gift to one's own husband. But, the Word of God says, 1 Corinthians 11:5, "But every woman that prayeth or prophesieth with her head uncovered DISHONOURETH HER HEAD: For she is even all one as if she were shaven." I will check my pm's for the next few days. I may check in every once in a while, but I need to focus upon my ministry which is my family. And I am truly sorry to those whom I have offended by my many statements about these topics. I never meant to offend anyone, but to see if perhaps there were Baptists out there who believed in a similar way. I know there are some, we have talked via pm and on the boards. But, generally it seems that the views I hold are very, very strange to so many here and in the Baptist churches we have been a part of.
