Protestant unity is new confession's focus
A confession of faith aimed at expressing "interdenominational unity" among Protestants on the 500th anniversary of the Reformation has drawn endorsement from professors at all six Southern Baptist Convention seminaries and staff members at the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission.

The "Reforming Catholic Confession" also has been signed by professors from at least eight colleges affiliated with state Baptist conventions and by Southern Baptist pastors including Matt Chandler, J.D. Greear and James MacDonald. ERLC President Russell Moore was the only SBC entity president among some 930 signatories as of Sept. 18.

Malcolm Yarnell, one of two SBC seminary professors on the confession's drafting committee, told Baptist Press in written comments, "Combining my voice with others who treasure our common history is a great way to remind ourselves of certain truths that were rediscovered during the ...

Yes it does. On its own. Without qualifying the call and see v13.

The ordo salutis is 1) election/predestination (in Christ), 2) Atonement 3) gospel call 4) inward call 5) regeneration, 6) conversion (faith & repentance), 7) justification, 8) sanctification, and 9) glorification. (Rom 8:29-30)

WCF 10/1 All those whom God hath predestinated unto life, and those only, he is pleased, in his appointed and accepted time, effectually to call,a by his Word and Spirit,b out of that state of sin and death, in which they are by nature, to grace and salvation by Jesus Christ;c enlightening their minds, spiritually and savingly, to understand the things of God;d taking away their heart of stone, and giving unto them an heart of flesh;e renewing their wills, and by his almighty power determining them to that which is good,f and effectually drawing them to Jesus Christ;g yet so as they come most freely, being made willing by his grace.h
a. Rom 8:30; 11:7; Eph 1:10-11. • b. 2 Cor 3:3, 6; 2 Thes 2:13-14....."

To all you on here who state that the doctrine of receiving Jesus Christ as ones Savior and Lord is a works based salvation system. Saint John 1:12 states "But as many as received Him, to them gave He the power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on His name". Does that sound like a works based salvation system?

There will be a better chance of interdenominational unity among mainstream Christianity because birds of a feather flock together.

It's a shame that the bride of Christ cannot get along without egos and pride getting in the way.

John Y., I know the official policy and general practices of the Methodist Church! I was a Methodist for thirty years.
I know a lot about the Methodist practices also because I have 3 first cousins(Children of my Father's late oldest brother) who were raised Methodist. I know that the Methodist Church practices Infant Baptism, has First Communion and has Confirmation but the Methodist Church does not believe that Infant Baptism imparts salvation. I know because that guy Methodist Minister that I know does not believe that Infant Baptism imparts salvation.

""A confession of faith aimed at expressing "interdenominational unity" among Protestants on the 500th anniversary of the Reformation has drawn endorsement from professors at all six Southern Baptist Convention seminaries""

Since when did "Protestants" and "Baptists" agree with each other???

Baptists don't even know how to baptize babies yet!!!

FYI:-
"A Conversation Concerning Infant Baptism"

"The following is a conversation between a Presbyterian and a Baptist concerning infant baptism. I first observed this approach of the topic in “William the Baptist” by James Chaney."

Take a look at http://tinyurl.com/ydas4c93 (Martin Luther: The Idea that Changed the World)
A good program on Luther. [Note: this may only be available to the end of the month ] Some of the best comes around the middle of this nearly two hour video. So, take particular note at the 50 minute mark.
"God forgives and forgiven people want to help others"

It really falls down on pointing out that many Prtoestants don't consider Baptism a sacrament, http://tinyurl.com/j28kmyd (Martin Luther's Sacramental Gospel), or look upon Communion as a sacrament either, http://tinyurl.com/ya7yva9b (What is consubstantiation?) These should more properly looked upon as ordinances. See http://tinyurl.com/y8d8lxl8 (What is the difference between ordinances and sacraments)---"... Rather than requirements for salvation, ordinances are visual aids to help us better understand and appreciate what Jesus Christ accomplished for us in His redemptive work...."

I know a guy Methodist Minister(My Non Denominational Brother's former Minister before my Brother switched to a Non Denominational Church) who supports the five solas and he preaches the biblical doctrine of salvation. That Methodist Minister used to be a Baptist before converting to the Methodist Church years ago.

Excellent Reminder!

The Seeker Sensitive Church Growth Movement is infamous in its promotion of 'small groups' to employ the ungodly Hegelian dialectic http://www.crossroad.to/articles2/04/3-purpose.htm

in a cunning deception making the "unity" of the group more important than Holiness, the faithful separation from all false teachings and teachers to be fully faithful and pleasing to Jesus Christ, to be in the world and not of the world.

So by the grace of God may we give ourselves to
Romans 12:1,2
Jude 1:1-4

Being wise as serpents and harmless as doves, seeking earnestly and fervently to win souls to Jesus Christ and being faithful to all His will for us as His disciples, even if it costs us our li
