    Moderate Baptists urge respect for 'fundamentalist brothers'
    July 2, 2003 - Volume: 03-62

    By Hannah Lodwick


    CHARLOTTE, N.C. (ABP) -- Although fundamentalists have made "separatist" decisions in recent years, mainstream Christians should try to understand their beliefs in order to "relate to our fundamentalist brothers and sisters," two moderate Baptist leaders said.
    "We are committed to being respectful of fundamentalism," Fisher Humphreys told those attending a breakout session of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship June 27. "We must be careful to not become contemptful of people who think differently than us."

    Me too. It's nice to know that somebody in the whole SBC takeover fiasco is practicing what they preach.

    People need to bear in mind the way "Fundamental" is applied. In most countries the Assemblies of God are considered a "Fundamentalist" church.

    I dont see how being 1611 KJVO and Cessationist, and banning Alcohol makes a church Fundamnetalist when these three doctrines are in error by the Fundamental word, the Bible.

    Now that this has been accomplished, perhaps we could next urge fundamentalist Baptists to respect their moderate brothers. :eek:

    ColoradoFB,

    When you're trying to get money out of someone it makes real good sense to feign respect for them. Kinda like back in the days of segregation - the whites didn't want to socialize with the blacks, but they sure didn't mind taking hard earned black money in white owned businesses.

    "How long, oh Lord!"
