This will not be a terribly long post. I have sermon preparation to do. Nevertheless, as I parsed the river of thought running through my mind, it occurred to me that I probably need to throw out into the public a response I’ve been making in my head to a mainstream argument coming from the immuno-vangelistic propaganda.
Why don’t Americans, especially discerning Christians, apply the principle of motive to their government?
What does God think about this hot-button issue?
Anachronistically, not statistically, I have gathered there to be two rather different responses to the current flow of information which comes by way of mainstream news media.
The method of theology matters, because it will ultimately determine whether or not a person has a true or a false theology.
That Christ now has one Church-Bride, betrothed exclusively to Him, comprised of all the elect at all times and in all places, who diligently awaits the consummate Marriage Feast: Baptists affirm.
Signs and types often bear the same names of the things signified or typified. Baptism might be called “regeneration” inasmuch as it signifies the inward work of the Spirit, though it itself is not regeneration.
The question is charged, because if someone says, “yes,” they can easily be accused of following a heathen philosopher rather than the Bible.
This article is a response to Landmarkism. The tone is irenic. I am indebted to men who espouse Landmarkism for much doctrinal fellowship, friendship, and sound counsel.
I appreciate this argument since its core concern is to preserve the sameness of the gospel under both Old and New Covenants, a concern both Baptists and paedobaptists ought to share.
