I cringe when I see anyone say 'I'm a Calvinist'! Many have aligned themselves with a mortal man and claim to follow his 'teachings'; is that what the Bible calls us to do? Let us always remember these words from our Lord, "Follow Me!"
Read the Bible wrote: Baptists delete the verses of the establishment of the Covenant of Grace with Abraham in Genesis 17. The reason they do this is because GOD ordains and demonstrates that the sign and seal of the Covenant is to be administered to babies. And as you know Baptists exclude babies because they cannot speak. The Baptist church does not have babies in its Tradition contrary to God's ordained Word and Covenant law. Christ Jesus is the Mediator of the Covenant of Grace and the Baptists by their Tradition refuse to bring their infants to Jesus. Matt 19:14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven.
Concerning Matthew 19:14-------------------------- "To this we give this one word, see that ye read the Word as it is written, and you will find no water in it but the Lord Jesus only. Are the water and Christ the same thing? Is bringing a child to a font bringing the child to Christ? Nay, here is a wide difference, as wide as between false doctrine and the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ". C.H. Spurgeon

The real issue is this particular Sunday is elevated above every Sabbath which is The Lord's Day. This is done in connection with the RCC calendar just as the harlot puts all her "holidays" above the Sabbath,

GS.....my husband and myself are of the baby boomer generation, and we are experiencing the same as you in our age group. Lots of church talk, but none have a desire to fellowship around the things of the Lord Jesus and His precious word. But you have certainly refreshed me over the past year with your posts!
Concerning the Presidents remarks of the Lord Jesus Christ....James 3:11-12. Doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter? Can the fig tree, my brethren, bear olive berries? either a vine, figs? so can no fountain both yield salt water and fresh.

Michael Hranek wrote: Hmmmm? IMHO our "friend" JY brings up an interesting thought: "Baptist" is a telling word, and here I mean "Baptist-Type Believers". Someone has said, 'All early Christians were "baptist". Basically Baptists are a uncomfortable reality that cries out we are all NOT THE SAME Misslabeling "Baptists" as Protestants avoids many things Catholics don't want to face up to Early Christians, again as someone said were all "Baptists" believed such things as: The Bible is the word of God, above the authority of any "magisterium" or "tradition", AND EVERYDAY PEOPLE had the right to read it and believe it for themselves. One must be genuinely born again to be saved (Jesus said so). Baptism was for believers only by immersion upon (after) profession of one's faith in Christ. Holiness, separation from the world and false teachings, to be faithful to Christ. BTW including refusing to deny Christ even if it meant martyrdom. Prayer, coming to the Father in the Name of His Son. The priesthoood of the Believer not priestcraft. Witnessing the Gospel of Christ to everyone was a sacred debt, priviledge and responsibility for every child of God.
Lady _Virtue...I for one, am encouraged when I read your posts. You are wise to ignore those who sit at a keyboard and viciously attack others. Thankfully there are only a handful on this forum that do this. You have a blessed day, sister.
Hello JuneAnnette....a Bessed Lords Day to you and your husband. Reading your testimony was like reading mine. So similar in many ways! What a gracious, loving, merciful Lord & Saviour we are most privileged to serve and witness of. Thanks again for sharing your wonderful testimony!
