    Default Specific Religion

    Good morning. I seek understanding and I pray that I do not offend anyone. My question is, regarding the Baptist religion, is it true that this particular religion holds back from informing the people who belong to this religion all of the information about the Bible says. Because I know some people who claim the Baptist religion to say "I know enough and that is enough" just to the point of being saved by belief in the death and resurrection of Christ. And in this, many of them have not even read the entire Bible through and through and if attending a sermon at a church that does not claim to be of any certain religion except that of being a Christian when in the message it is a lecture prompting conviction to a person for issues that may be apparent in themselves then decide that at this point they do not like the church because it is a lecture.

    My belief is that this is what church is about. To remind us of the ways that we should live and to try to live betters lives when repenting of the sin that should be dealt with.

    The Baptists have the same problem the Presbyterians have -- enough divisions that there is little meaning in the word, other than we all go to church on occasion. You can be an atheist, an agnostic, or a Christian and still be called "Baptist" or "Presbyterian." It's the rest of the name of the denomination that tells a little more of which things you believe. (BTW, I'm Presbyterian, so not picking on the Baptists.)

    So, there is no answer to your question without knowing which branch of Baptists you're referring to.

    And even if someone is in a Christian branch, there is still no knowing. Because there is the visible church -- the people you see going to church every weekend -- and the invisible church. The invisible church are the ones who truly have been adopted by the Lord, and still go to church every weekend. Some of us don't, but there you have it. You really can't judge a church by talking to a couple of people in it.

    Also I study my Bible daily and also seek other literature about the Bible and Jesus. I guess that I feel that I have decided to follow Jesus and that I have grown to love Him so much that I constantly hunger and thirst for more and more of Him everyday.

    First Baptist is the name, not the denomination.

    A church with the name "First Baptist" could an American Baptist, Southern Baptist, Free Will Baptist, Full Gospel Baptist, or even an independent church that just attached Baptist to their name.

    There are dozens of Baptist denominations just here in the US Some of them are spot on with the Gospel, others got a bit of crazy mixed in.

    PS. Even within a specific denomination, there can be variations from one congregation to the next depending on the pastor and church leadership. I grew up in an American Baptist Church that was out of line with the rest of the denomination.

    I think you've confused Baptists with Momo's.
    Go ask your average Momo about some of their church's more controversial
    doctrines, and they'll likely not even know what you're talking about.
