I would like to know how you define "liberal" as it is used in our churches. When I was a fundamental bapist, I heard that word used thousands of times, from the pulpit & from individuals to describe those who do not ascribe to their set of beliefs & doctrines. However, none of the pastors or church leaders could/would give a satisfactory answer as to the definition & Scriptural use of such a derisive name. I left the IFB movement less than ten years ago, and joined a conservative SBC. In that time, I've never heard the term used against non-SBC'ers. Is the term only used by fundamental baptists, or do other denominations use it as a spiritual term as well?
