    I don't have time to watch the whole video right now but there are very few Baptists who can sing harmony in a cappella like these folks do.

    A Cappella is a musical artform ...ancient in fact. 1st is a Primitive Baptist Church in Tenn Smokey Mountains performing Shape Note/Sacred Harp Music.

    And another PB Church in Southwest VA singing lined out singing--this is from Great Britain (mostly Welsh, Scottish, Ulster & Cornwall). Resides today mostly in the Appalachian Mountains.

    And if you do ever get to it you will see that the Baptists , because he stated he did not disagree on several doctrines, they gave him the bums rush vs having long conversation with him. now his entire male family (almost) are C of C clergy, including himself.....LOL!

    Since I have zero experience with these guys .....ya know its difficult to access them.

    Roman Catholics & apostate Methodists, PCUSA & Lutherans, I have experience with.

    The folks we should be concerned with are the RCC.....they can be formidable (Especially up North where you have allot of immigrants)......also Texas, California & NM, Right!

    Actually the CoC has the heaviest influence in NM nearest I can tell. Mormons used to have the northern part of the state covered but that seems to be rapidly dwindling.

    Well out here regardless of the denomination there is a lot of anti-intellectualism and back woods theology.

    Church of Christ= Campbellites from the 19th century. They still preach baptismal regeneration. They are not by themselves of course--the majority of christendom believe sins are washed away by baptismal waters.

    This is still false doctrine. It matters not what your x-y co-ordinates might be, nor your IQ.

    Now what?

    Even so, come, Lord Jesus.

    A lot of folks out here get their world view based on their own little life's experiences right here and they do not want to be told otherwise. There is a strong idea that any judgment of anyone for any reason is wrong. At the same time a lot of folks believe that a believer cannot struggle with sin like drugs or alcohol. They do not believe in influence from great men of God past and present. I could go on but you would have to be here to see the inentional ignorance among a lot of folks. Any day I am expecting to see the snakes come out. And really it is not as much about what they believe as it is how they got there and the fact that they hate outside influences.

    He makes a reference to the 18 articles of faith that Baptists are "supposed to believe" -- sort of like the "Baptist confession of faith".

    Maybe nobody told him that there is no such thing as something all baptists are supposed to believe. If they had told him - maybe he never would have left.

    Rough as bagers ...then you'd have to focus on the young. See I'm probably unusual in that I saw the light at 53 yo...after I thought I was set in my ways so its a strange and different environment ...one at times I wish didn't happen cause it changed me so radically. Now I cant accept the "same old same old " and ive become radical...everything. has to be done from the mind of Christ without regard to outward tradition...and that alone riles allot of people. So I know where your coming from...braking comfort zones isn't easy!

    "they just bounced him" but the problem is "they" is undefined and in fact if one were to believe all the "you can't pin Baptists down as believing any one set of actual Bible doctrines" is to be believed on this board - then there is in fact no "they" that is qualified to say that any so-and-so's doctrine is not "Baptist".

    If the guy making the video had fully realized the implications of such amorphous doctrinal claims - he could easily have accommodated his view into something that ends with the word "Baptist" since I think the Church of Christ doctrinal set (like the JW's , Baptists and Seventh-day Baptist, Seventh-day Adventists etc) also includes Believer's Baptism - by immersion -- as the only valid form of Baptism.

    in Christ,

    Bob

    Bob.... did you play the video in its entirety? If not, he had other issues---for example, OSAS.

    However, I believe the real issue in a nut shell was how he got into the Baptist church in the 1st place....I would describe it as easy believism.
