I was raised a Bible believing, born again, Fundamentalist Baptist.

We were taught that the Bible was the literally inspired, infallible Word of God.

And we were Baptists because we aspired to be like Jesus, and Jesus was a Baptist.

How do we know that? Well, if you are baptized by a Catholic, what denomination are you? A Catholic. And if you are baptized by a Methodist? You are a Methodist, of course.

And who baptized Jesus? Was it John the Episcopalian? No. Was it John the Lutheran? No. It was John the BAPTIST.

How much more clear could it be?


fachad's standard Babble Faith Disclaimer:

My familiarity with religious ideas should not be mistaken for religious belief. I am an agnostic.

I not a Christian, I do not believe the Bible is the Word of God, nor do I believe in ANY revealed religion (i.e., religion that was revealed by God to some person or through some purported holy book.)

I am especially disdainful of religions that take mythological material, which is beautiful and meaningful in that it tells us about our collective unconscious, and claims that it is historical rather than mythical in nature.
