    rsr,

    WOW!!! :eek: That so LOT of groups among 'Baptist' churches in America!!

    I do not realized there are so lot different groups among baptist churches in America. I thought there are only 3 or 4 different kinds of baptist organizations - SBC, IFB, Freewill, and Calvism. But, I read another thread, that you opsted it. Unbelieveable!

    Apostle Paul tells us, that he begged us to have same mind in Christ, not let there are divisions among the Body of Christ.

    Even, there are already divided among Christians in churches in America, also, over the world everywhere.

    Why cannot we all have same mind on Jesus Christ, and teaching the same doctrine?

    Bible is the only one book that have everything to answer.

    But, we all are human, our understanding are limited. God's knowledge is more beyond ahead over us. God commands us to study Bible, to keep our belief to be defend and lest us lead into errors and ahead toward destruction(Matt. 7:13-14).

    No way that we can make all Christians to be unity and have same mind on the doctrines from Bible over America. Till we get in heaven, then there is no division there. Also, when Christ comes to earth at second coming, there will be no more divisions among the Body of Christ again for forever and ever.

    I consider, many religions- Lutheran, Methodists, Baptists, etc. all come from Roman Catholic, I called Catholic, the Mother of all religions.

    I am baptist, but I am not allowed to become missionary or to teaching at IFB church, because I am posttrib & amill.

    rsr, I wonder, do you know any 'baptist' church in America teaching on posttrib & amill? My desire to serve the Lord, to be involve with the church that have almost same doctrines as what I believe.

    In Christ
    Rev. 22:20 -Amen!

    How to count baptists?

    You go into church, total up the number of shoes, and divide by two.

    Or just ask the number of opinions and divide by three.

    Deafposttrib,

    There is a Baptist preacher that promotes your rapture position. His name is George B. Fletcher.

    You can read what he has to say at the following links:

    http://www.pbministries.org/Eschatology/fletcher_01.htm

    http://www.midcry.org/ls&w5.htm

    The first link is to the website of Providence Baptist Ministries of Granbury, Texas.

    This site is a "collage" of writings from hyper-Calvinist authors, who are posttribulational.

    Following your examination of these articles by Fletcher, I would invite you to read a REFUTATION of Fletcher's articles at the following link:

    So how does that work if you are at "The Barefoot Baptist Church"? (I'm sure there is one somewhere, or will be soon ...)

    Regards

    You obviously belong to a united baptist church .. Some i know can have 3 opinions for every 2 people who are members.

    Regards

    How do you count Baptists? Have them raise their hands by vote, and add 45.
