I was saved at the age of 10, at a Methodist Youth Fellowship meeting, where the man came out and "had a message to share with us".
- Favorite Verse:
- I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ Liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the Faith of the Son of God, Who Loved me, and Gave Himself for me." Galatians 2:20
I had no Bible or church of any kind, until my early twenties.
A man gave me 500 sermonists on Salvation, sinners are dead, The Lord's churches, and Authority in Baptism. It all seemed right and when the Preacher turned from text to text to text and THEN said, "Here's what God says", I picked up on things rather quickly.
Why not? The Holy Spirit had been with me as I traveled out to believe I came from a monkey, back to hearing for the first time that there was a Book called, "Genesis" and Two Testaments, in the Bible, and four Gospels...I didn't know.
I was handed the works of C.D.Cole, then had T.P. Simmons' book assigned in Bible College.
I saw a Billboard Ad for Lexington Baptist College and decided to "go to learn what I'd missed in Sunday School".
Sure enough, I heard the name, "Abraham", for the first time, there, etc.
The Lord called me to preach and I've done supply preaching and Vacation Bible Schools for the kids.
We are currently IN PUBLIC SCHOOLS through the Good News Club.
I teach devotion on Sunday Mornings and have "a work", online,
and discuss the Index to Revelation, here: at WordPress.com

To me, the works of these men, A.W. Pink, James Petigru Boyce, etc., and those of my Teachers at school and Preacher friends and, believe it or not, "The BIBLE", is what I consider I am, as opposed to, "A Calvinist", although, I get it.
I put in those 600+ blog posts "What I Believe" and it is a work in progress.
I consider my participation in Baptist Board Forums a ministry.
"Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the laborers are few: pray ye, therefore, the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth laborers into his harvest."
No reason to leave "Calvinism", since I first heard it.
King James Bible
"Then Simon Peter answered him, Lord, to whom shall we go?
thou hast the words of eternal life." John 6:68
No reason to leave The Lord's Kind of Church, where I first heard it.
My current church home, Bryan Station Baptist Church, was founded in 1786 and still believes the same as it has through 40-something Presidents (Kentucky was not yet a state and John Handcock was President).
We are Missionary and have started several works throughout the states, including my first home church, and around the World.
Messages by my first Pastor, if you want to know "how I cut my teeth"
Speaker: Bill DeRossitt
Will you be His Disciple
Have we Left our First Love
Do we Hunger for God
Message by my current Pastor, i.e., Sound and Balanced, Informative, and Compassionate:
0.0.10 ALARM #22:
“GIVE ME A GOOD REASON YOU WANT TO GO TO HELL” or BOW YOUR HEAD!
His message; Pastor Brent Spears: "A Passion For Souls" (Proverbs 11:30)
"The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life, and he that winneth souls is wise."
We might as well take a loaded gun to people’s heads.
begin at 24:00 minute mark.
Can you be Eternally Saved by just “deciding to”, signing a Commitment Card, or even “Praying”?
Can anyone, “Make a Decision” for Christ??
or “Make Jesus your ‘Lord'”?
You may think you have done some of these things and yet still do not “feel” saved.
Well, it may not be “Well with your soul”, so BE SURE.
YOU MUST BE BORN AGAIN.

GOD of THE BIBLE,

The ACTS of CREATION

The Entire THEME

The BIBLE is Written to Show:
The ACTIVITY of ALMIGHTY GOD
in the ETERNAL
SALVATION of the SOUL.
SALVATION of the SOUL
is The ACTIVITY
of ALMIGHTY GOD
GOD HAS SAVED SOULS
through "THE WAY",
THE SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST
in the SAME WAY;
from the fall of the first man,
and GOD WILL SAVE SOULS

THE SAVIOR, JESUS CHRIST,
Until Jesus Comes Again.
GOD SAVES SOULS, NOW,
And GOD WILL SAVE SOULS

Salvation of the Soul
is the FULFILLMENT
of an Agreed Upon

Among and Between
GOD the FATHER,
JESUS, GOD The SON
GOD The HOLY SPIRIT;

Agreed to take His Part
in the Administration
of the Gift
of man’s Eternal Salvation,
AS SHOWN IN THE BIBLE
by THE GRACE OF GOD
UPON HIS CHILDREN,
throughout Recorded Time.
I go with The Bible and John Gill's understanding of Reprobation, but again, we are Missionary.

"Remove not the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set." Proverbs 22:28
"Truly the old landmark once stood, and having fallen, it was deemed proper to reset it."
(The Baptist Encyclopedia, 1881, p. 868.)
"[T]here are many elements in Baptist history which bear an obvious and direct relationship to the tenets of the Landmark system and which clearly demonstrate that the architects of the movement, 'the Great Triumvirate,' were building on a foundation in Baptist life which was already laid." - LeRoy B. Hogue, "The Antecedents of Landmarkism".

As to the O.P.'s interest in "leaving", I am more, unashamedly, included to point folks my way.
I work with Homeless folks every day, in and out of my home,
and I ask them, "Do you think Jesus will Come Back today?"
SignatureKing James Bible
"For this cause we also, since the day we heard it,
do not cease to pray for you,
and to desire that ye might be filled with the knowledge of His will
in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; Collosians 1:9"
