The General Baptist Discussions, and the Baptist Theology & Bible Study seem to be geared to foster debate. If debating is forbidden on BB, can BB continue its mission? If permissible will begin a Sobriety 2 thread shortly if someone doesn't beat me to it (Have to rake leaves after this post), for I have questions to me unanswered, and I am sure others also. I find debates as we find here to be instructive, as this is how we learn, and teach the Word of God. I see discussion here for the most part as the pros and cons of issue's we find in His Word. If we do not agree in all points, is that cause to "quarrel". If those that see it as just "quarrelling" then to them it is "quarrelling", and they should stop as they see it is not suitable for them to be doing. I see discussing His Word to be fruitful to those who wish to discuss. If they want to "quarrel" I'll still discuss a subject with them. Perhaps it will teach that our "discussions" are not of me against them, but what is the Word telling us. Is the Word right, or do we decide WE are right. From here each of us can stand or fall according to our faith. In "discussions" over the years I realized I truly did have my own Apostle. Some here know that, but many look to All the Apostles, unable to ferret out the faith each of us reach Holiness. Are we of the "Kingdom Gospel", or of the "Body Gospel"? I know where I stand and I found this in His Word. Any care to give account of which Gospel they stand in, or does it make any difference? I'll discuss, and if you wish to quarrel, I'll also stand my ground in Him.
