I just joined the Baptist Board. Thank you for allowing me to participate.
I was saved about 40 years ago and have been Independent Baptist for decades.
After fasting (three times), praying (earnestly), and studying God's Word (diligently) decades ago, I came to the settled conclusion that remarriage after divorce from a "covenant" spouse is adultery. I believe that this truth must be spoken in love because, if not, it can be extremely harmful.
I also believe that churches must...
Reply from David Cloud:
So the idea that I have simply refused to correct an error is wrong. I am all about truth, my friend. God knows my heart.

I know of a case where David Cloud did not correct a factual error that he had quoted from D. A. Waite concerning the number of differences which affect the sound between the 1611 edition of the KJV and the Oxford KJV...
One of BB's new members, Cynthia W. Toles, asked a question in her new member introduction, and asked to spread it around for responses. I am starting a thread here in hopes of helping.
I am a Bible teacher at my church and I am studying for my Masters in Biblical Teaching...Can you help spread that question to get some responses? Thank you
I have asked a question to get some responses. What do you think a women role is in the Baptist Faith? Are women called to pastor?
At the moment you were born-again … you were only forgiven of the sins you had committed up to that point in time!
“For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness, and has forgotten that he was cleansed from his OLD sins. Therefore, brethren, be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for IF you do these things you will never stumble; for so an entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” (2...
So who has the authority to baptise? Is it only the ordained? elders? only male Christians? or all those who are in Christ?
I maintain that all Christians can Baptise new believers. For the Priesthood of all believers. However for Good order, a Pastor should usually do so.
Which do you support? Why?
Churches that practice “open” communion invite all professed believers in Christ to join them in observing the ordinance. Churches that practice “closed” communion limit involvement in the Lord’s Supper to their own local body/denomination—only official members in good standing are allowed to partake.
There are three modes of Baptism that are implemented. These are; Aspersion(sprinkling), Affusion(pouring) and Immersion(submerging).
Would it be an acceptable Baptism if it was done through any/all these modes?
Would there be any exceptions, such as too infirm or health reasons where immersions could not be done?
If some modes are not acceptable would you expect them to be Baptised properly?
I'm trying to come to a conclusion on this topic.
Biblical errancy is real.
Biblical errancy typically has one or more of 3 causes: 1) The reader not correctly understanding what is read. 2) Translation problems. 4) Copyist errors.
It is God who is inerrant and His word. The written word of God which we have in our translations of the Bible are inerrant in their original autographs. The books of the Bible were the inerrant word of God at the time they were written.
This thread is about translation as I would like to see done. From time to time I will post one.
Others should feel free to do the same. But be prepared to accept the fact there may be some who will disagree.
(KJV is the starting base.)
Here is my first suggestion:
". . . Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born over, he cannot see the kingdom of God. . . ." -- John 3:3.
". . . Marvel not that I said unto thee, Ye must be born over. . . ."...
