    What is the reason your church does not have a nursery?

    I suppose part of it is historical/traditional, where our rural churches had large families and no nurseries and had no idea that any such thing was needed. We and a few others have continued under the idea that no such thing is needed, and have consciously (iow, not accidentally) continued on the past course. The way children learn how to behave at the church meeting is by being at the church meeting. If church services are absent of children, soon both adults and children are warmed to the idea that they shouldn't be there (iow, we don't do children's church either).

    Rivaughn - thank you for your sincere and reasonable answer.
    So as not to hijack the OP of this thread - I have started a new thread.

    As I read through the article, in what areas does the B.B. membership not argue over?

    In this from wiki:

    “Faithful Word Baptist Church believes that the King James Bible is the inspired Word of God and is without error. The church also believes in the post-tribulation rapture, salvation by grace through faith, and eternal torment in hell for the unsaved. Among the church's beliefs are the view that life begins at conception, that homosexuality is a sin and an abomination which God punishes with the death penalty, and opposition to worldliness, formalism, modernism, liberalism, and modalism.[6]”.​

    The reason behind post # 85 is that too often the typical thinker just writes off a whole group and therefore bring a short of condemnation upon what they may actually find acceptable in their own view.

    Such a discussion must (as it pertains to a certain preacher or even assembly in which there is disagreement) be very specific as to exactly the extent and boundaries of both agreement and disagreement so that clear distinction is made.

    For example:
    I am clearly not KJV only, and although I may celebrate quietly if visiting such a church, would if ask make such a distinction as unoffensively as possible to a member. ​

    In the realms of rapture, I am a rapture at the will of the Father hopefull, yet I am also a physical return of Christ with all believers for the millennium thinker. ​

    When it comes to the promise of God to the nation of Israel, I most certainly do not hold to a replacement theology (supersessionist) as some are.​

    Therefore:
    Could I join such an assembly? No.

    Could I find fellowship in some members of the assembly? Possibly, dependent more upon them then me.

    Could I bring accusation against the assembly and the leadership? Possibly, but it would be very specific and upon matters of doctrinal conviction and not upon preferences.

    Ultimately one must be very careful and specific when calling an assembly and that assembly’s leadership into question.
