I wanted to add something else, I think most âflat earthersâ have a desire for biblical truth, they donât want to compromise, etc.
This is something that should be approached in a respectful way. I must say that itâs not really on my priority list, not because I donât think itâs important, itâs just that I have my focus on other things like The authority of scripture, Textual Criticism, Church History, Mormonism, Logic, etc.
Watcher, you didnât address the category errors you made, you didnât answer the questions I asked, all you did was direct me to a 600+ page pdf. That is unreasonable.
I donât know about you, but I donât have the time to read that book, Iâm trying to read 3 books a day (I spend about 40m a book per day and I should be able to finish the books in 2weeks) and my schedule is busy. Although Iâll try to read the book next year, I also plan to listen to Rob Skibo.
Although I gave a quick gander and Dr. Robert Carter (and CMI) comes under attack, I quote,
âDr. Carterâs disrespectfulâphenomenolog ical languageâ theory for bible passage goes hand-in-hand with the fact that he seems not to truly believe Godâs promise to preserve his word.â Pg. 663
To my fellow IFB, letâs follow the wisdom of the moderator and donât pay attention to Jim who is trying to start a ruckus.
But to add to what I was saying earlier, we use titles to distinguish ourselves from pseudoChristian cults like Mormonism. We say we are monotheists thus we affirm the scriptures (Gen 1:1, Deut. 6:4, Isaiah 41-45, etc.) and reject Mormonism.
By saying I am a Reformed Baptist, I am saying that I am a monotheistic, trinitarian, Calvinist, who holds to the innerancy and inspiration of scripture and I might take a liking to the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith and the Westminster Larger Catechism.
And itâs already assumed that Iâve said, âI am a Christian.â The whole Reformed Baptist label would give you a general idea of what I believe.
Thus I think the terms âWesleyan, Lutheran, Presbyterian, IFB, etc.â are quite appropriate.
