I've been enjoying reading Baptist history lately, but keep running up on some very illogical arguments. One concerns postmillenialism. Now, we could have an enjoyable and vigorous scriptural debate about millenialism. But I keep reading (even on BB) that WW I and WWII and the Depression proved postmillenialism wrong. Uh, no they didn't. They might have discouraged folks from believing in it. But they proved nothing. That is like saying Job really should have cursed God and died, or like saying Abraham should have tried to get Sarah in the family way a reasonable amount of time and then given up. Postmil may be right or may be wrong scripturally, but current events should not logically determine our endtimes beliefs. Another--from both sides of the creation fence--is that either you have to accept YEC or godless evolution. Uh, no, there are more options. It isn't that cut and dried. Another issue is apostolic succession. I grew up where landmarkism was rampant, and got taught a rather illogical view that Baptists didn't believe in it AT ALL, that was RCC, and yet that we could trace our "apostolic succession" through the trail of blood all the way back to John the Baptist. Well, pick one view and let the other go. Without debating the issues of endtimes or creation or apostolic succession, are there other illogical teachings you see floating around?
