Ok, in the "How dare you" thread there is a discussion about whether or not missions is for the church today. I am interested in 1) knowing what "flavors" of Baptists support missions, and what "flavors" of Baptists do not support missions 2) and what theological belief is your foundation? Here are my answers 1) I am ABC and we fully support missions. 2) We hold that the great commission is for us today. We also believe that God through his Sovereignty has allowed us (remember He can do anything He wants) to have free will to choose Him, or reject Him. This of course means that it is our responsibility to reach the world to tell others about Christ... henceforth ... missions. (Mods, I would like to keep this here instead of in the missions forum, because the issue of whether or not to be missional minded affects all Baptists. But if I am wrong, and it has happened believe it or not, then move it on.) OH, one more thing... I realize we are not going to agree. So let's not try to convince one another that the other person is wrong... let's debate this from an educational perspective... Let's just learn about our brother's and sister's beliefs. The more we learn about others, the more we know what why we believe what we believe. Oh, and be "tasteful" lol Get it? "flavor" and "tasteful" haha :tonofbricks: Oh boy, we have a hard crowd in here today!
