    Correction- "...the second-largest association of churches in America,..."

    The SBC is NOT a "church" as the Methodist or other groups are!

    I'll sign up if it is changed to “Confederate Baptist Convention.”

    >The SBC is NOT a "church" as the Methodist or other groups are!

    This is a silly argument.

    The SBC conforms to the 1st definition.

    I agree with you on the term denomination - its "Church" (as opposed to church) I disagree with.

    Hmm Confederate - not bad - I assume you are talking about the Article of Confederation - meant to be a very, very loose organization ( I esp like Article II)

    JIM - You might be interested in Article XI
