    John Q. Adams "Baptists, the Only Thorough Reformers"?

    If you have ever read it what are some of your thoughts?

    I am not familiar with this one. Sounds interesting, though.

    I have heard of this one, but never read it. It is available online at Reformed Reader. I find it hard to do lengthy reading online. Perhaps some of you can make use of this.

    More interesting reading: "Why Baptists Are Not Protestants", by Vernon C. Lyons. Found on the www.

    Choose wisely.

    Why Baptists are not Protestants
    Sigh...
    When it comes to choosing wisely what to read it would be better to ignore this brochure and read something a little more substantial and uplifting, like say a prince Valiant comic....

    Interesting how the paradigms of "ecclesia" are so different. This may go back to one of the earliest errors: universal/visible and fourteen centuries later, universal/invisible church.

    What if the assembly is local-visible only? Is this something for the DD's to haggle about? Seems like an important issue--for the rank and file laity.

    Selah,

    Many early errors have been purged by Baptists and others.

    Transubstantiation/Consubstantiation, Baptismal regeneration, Sacerdotal priesthood, sacramentalism, conditional salvation, etc.

    I have read both and thoroughly enjoyed them.

    When I find online reading difficult download, save to MS Word and print small portions.

    Thats just me.

    I found it at the Hall of Church History under the Baptist links.

    Printed a full copy in 1999, and gave it to my pastor.

    He enjoyed it also.

    We are both local/visible church only. the only universe we know of is the one God created.

    But I hear there is a universal studio in Hollywood, never seen it though.

    Anyway, Both works are worthy of reading imho. I think Spurgeon used Adams' work as a text in his pastor's college and made some comments about it being the best work on its subject matter he had ever read (paraphrazing, so don't quote me on that, although Spurgeon did say something similar, but not exactly the same).

    then he made a joke about his pug bull dogs and everyone laughed and retired to the parlor.

    Well, ok the last part I am not sure about, but the rest of it, even the dogs, that is true.

    Spurgeon had them trained to sit quietly when he mentioned prayer, proved it to a deacon once and other visitors; then remarked how he was certain the Lord had a sense of humor, or else he would not have made a creature so ugly, (again a paraphrase)

    Ok guys, I am going to bed right now, I have read too much online for thisevening.

    May God Bless,
    Bro. Dallas
