The other thread that "stilllearning" started claimed something to the effect that Conservative independent baptist do not use modern english translations. So, my question is, can anyone show any support whatsoever to show that historically conservative baptists, fundamental baptists etc have held to a single translation only view? By the way, I attend a Baptist church that is not affiliated with any denomination so that makes us independent. We are not liberals, so I guess that makes us conservatives. We hold to all of the historical fundamentals of the Christian faith. So I guess that makes us "fundamentalists" However we use the ESV and the NIV both in services and various members use the NASB and NKJV in private use and occasionally in classes. I would like to know, does that make us not fundamentalists? Does that make us liberals? I should also state that we hold to the Bible as out ultimate authority and hold it to be the God Breathed Word of God. Inerrant and infallible. Anyway, this has been stated more or less a million times but I would like someone to come out and say that we are liberals, since that is what is often implied.
