Quoted from gb93433. I have to ask, is this true? How could a person who believes in salvation by grace alone depart from this to enter into heresy? This may seem naive, the whole "if they were not part of us they would not have left us." I mean come on, I came out of heresy, so I find this a BIG deal. I will say, before I left heresy, the church I was attending was joined by a former Baptist pastor and his family. Again, if he had a Biblical understanding of Sola Gratia, how could he had left? What am I missing? Do not all baptists believe sola gratia, sola fide? Do some want to be part baptist, part something else, i.e. pentecostal, mormon, etc?
