Give me that Old Time Religion, it's good enough for me! If my parents and grandparents and my wife's grandparents and parents were saved through old fashioned Baptist religion, you'd better believe we are not going to be Catholics or non-denominational (which by the way is always attached to a denomination) or anything else. A Baptist led me to Christ, a Baptist led my wife to Christ. I don't want to be anything else. I'm not saved because I'm a Baptist, but no other religion carred about my soul. No other religion witnessed to my parents and grandparents. Our forefathers bled and died so we could have the distinctives that make us Baptist. The trail of blood is clear enough throughout history for me to know what I believe. If you've decided it's no big deal to throw out the doctrine that led to your salvation, shame on you. No church is perfect, but even a dog knows to chew the meat and spit out the bones. You shouldn't throw the baby out with the bathwater. Baptist doctrine is a precious baby! Cherish it, embrace it, promote it. Naaman tried to take some holy ground back with him to worship God on. You don't move holy ground. You stand on it!
By the grace of God we will always use the old King James Bible 1611. Praise the Lord for the Word of God! Satan loves to kill doctrine, The first place he seeks to do it is in the Word of God. He did it with the first Adam and tried it with the last Adam.
We love the old hymns of the faith. I have no appetite for contemporary christian music. I've seen good churches loose their identity starting with the music. I believe Satan loves to take out doctrine wherever he can. Songs, hymns, and Spiritual songs are enough for me
We have not arrived. We are being sanctified. Holiness is the goal. A righteous God told his people to be holy because He is holy. Jesus Christ is our standard. We are not perfect, but we are trying to be conformed into the image of Christ. While it's not our job to judge anyone else's standards we are asking God to separate our family. We want to be different. A peculiar people. A spectacle for our Savior.
