    With so many different off-shoots of Baptists, and the great divide between Calvinists and Armenians, I have to ask whether heaven will be void of any other religion than Baptists; and which branch of Baptists will dominate heaven?

    "I say of the Baptist name, let it perish, but let Christ’s name last forever! I look forward with pleasure to the day when there will not be a Baptist living. I hope they will soon be gone. You will say, “Why?” Because when everybody else sees Baptism by immersion, we shall be immersed into all sects and our sect will be gone." ―Charles Spurgeon, "The Eternal Name"

    JESUS will and should monopolize heaven. Can't imagine anything less.

    That is when we ALL shall belong to the "true" Church of Christ!

    And van and Icon and all of us will realise that we all "saw as throguh a glass dimly" our precious truths and doctrines!

    Van sees Christ with polished-up bronze -- Icon sees the Lord with a modern mirror. Both do not yet see Him face-to-face. None of us do. But I think there are some clear distinctions down here. Yes, of course all the distinctions will fad away when we see our Lord face-face. Reminds me of a hymn!

    Not everyone who professes is going to belong on that day;
    Mt7:21-24
    The saints have always found truth and biblical doctrine precious.We live in a day where truth and doctrine are being despised.....I am not giving anyone a free pass.....God is their judge...not me. What you believe matters according to scripture.None of us are Apostles...so we are only responsible for the truth we have been given by God, This attitude that doctrine is optional is not one that I will ever support in this lifetime.I see where it will lead many to be mislead.I see it here on BB daily.

    The reason for the growth of mushy mega-churches....is this very thing...for the most part.
    No...doctrine and truth is precious to me as it is given by God.

    We are commanded to...contend for the once for all time delivered faith.

    Not be contentious...but rather to contend, teach and offer a defense of the FAITH.
    Jude 1:3

    Young's Literal Translation (YLT)

    3 Beloved, all diligence using to write to you concerning the common salvation, I had necessity to write to you, exhorting to agonize for the faith once delivered to the saints,

    I agree with you on the importance of having and maintaining sound docrines/practices, but my point was that when we see jesus, that those disagreements will be gone, as He will theologically straighten us all out!

    We will know as we are known, and we will reign with Christ in the new heavens and earth together.

    Thankfully "Baptist" is not a religion! It will be such a glad time to see the end of denominations.

    I can, however, see a quiet group building up the nerve, maybe after a few thousand years and an elected "you do it" person later, ask which denomination came closest to the truth.

    It will likely result in something like "the one that showed the most love," which will lead to the birth of a whole new planetary system because everyone will want to go try it again and try to get it right. :eek:

    We'll be too busy praising God to worry about it.

    Some of us 'stiff" and "proper" baptists once there mightfind out that there was a real "dancing in the Spirit", and might actually raise up holy hands and shout!
