Is anybody awake in the history forum? No one has posted here since the 22nd, so I thought I'd try to sound a wake-up call. In a thread in General Discussions, J. R. Graves mentioned the following: He also defined alien immersion in this way: "Historically alien baptism has been defined as baptism administered by a non-Baptist church. However with the demise of denominationalism, we must define what a non-Baptist church is." Perhaps J. R. will notice this thread and post. I'd like to hear more about this survey. Perhaps we can start from there with an historical investigation of the rise of "alien immersion" among Baptists in the southern U.S. in the 20th century (or something like that). Any takers?
