Hey Jerry, Jeff never said ANYTHING about only Baptists getting to heaven. Why do people run off to their own conclusions without any justification? The issue is DO ANY OF YOU GUYS SCREEN YOUR PEOPLE WHO COME TO YOU WANTING TO JOIN YOUR CHURCH? And if you do, are you strict or loose? We take church membership serious. Pastor Craig Ledbetter Ireland -----Original Message----- <snip> So you believe that only "baptized Baptists" will get into Heaven??? If God accepts them as members of His family and Body, then why do you and your church reject them as members of your local fellowship of believers (church)??? Is this religious (Baptist) tradition or New Testament Doctrine (teaching)???
