I like to read a wide variety of magazines,websites, blogs, forums, etc that purport to be Christian. Many of them claim to be Baptist, or have those claiming to be Baptist commenting on them. More and more I find some making statements that are downright disdainful of anyone who can state emphatically that they know when they were born again. Now, I get it that some have used the altar call and sinner's prayer in a manipulative way and that may have resulted in false conversions. Not what those I'm posting about are discussing AT ALL. Rather, there seems to be a disdainful attitude that basically says "I'm the better Christian because I ____ and you are a judgemental jerk if you claim to know when you were saved." Now, I might expect that from folks in some faith families. But I just don't get it from those claiming to be evangelicals and especially those claiming to be Baptists. Can anyone enlighten me as to what is causing this trend?
