Well, today Z and I had a great lunch with a PCA brother at Chama River. Good times. I am always encouraged and amazed by how much we Christian types have in common when you get down to it (contra the world’s perception that we’re all sectarian backbiters). And you guessed it, the issue of Baptism came up. As expected, our brother Mike articulated his position the same way I’ve heard it 20 times now at Wscal and RTS. And as expected, Z and I left thinking…not converting, but needing to do our homework.
So, I want to raise a question to all of you…a simple one that I hope we can discuss with love, honesty, and patience…why do we baptist folk (-ben) believe the way we do? By way of confession, my most difficult issue here is that I can see clarity, continuity and good exegesis on BOTH sides. crap.
Your answer can be simple or complex, but lets stay honest. I’m really curious to hear your thoughts as well as read your resources. Go! Make disciples of all nations…and, well, how do we do what comes next?
