Besides foreign missions, this infinitesimal elect trickle from SBC loins barely adds even a drop every year to its membership bucket.
Baptists birth devil spawn. To fix this most have hooked up with Margaret Sanger. Don't ever let Baptist children sing "Jesus Loves Me" because He probably doesn't. They're all damned unless or until that elect one, walks the aisle, says the sinners prayer, gives a public testimony and gets baptized.
The big money is on international missions where they convert millions of elect and godly children from the pagan.
If a baptist ever tells you his child is of the covenant, he's a crypto-Presbyterian or worse.
