For obvious reasons I thought this post would be better posted in this section.

Most of us are Church Leaders and sometimes all of us have forgotten what the attitudes of leaders should be like.

Let's make a CONVENANT with one another to debate/argue in a godly way from now on and set the tone for all of the others. Blessings

I did not want arguments and I wanted this not to be a thread that made people mad. It was to make those who frequent it the most think!

There have been many "call outs" of this nature....


2 b honest I kind of like the passion that we see on threads. If we don't have passion about Jesus, and what we beleive, then that is just sad!

Granted the name calling and cutting eachother down needs to stop.....

something about out your mouth, your heart speaks .


Peace ouT!

Pappy,
I think a lot people get upset with it, because it is so simple. All we have to do is follow what God want's us to do, why he tells us. It's that simple.

Never think that we laugh you. I know I admire you and your sticking to your guns about A238.

Elijah,

I understand what you are saying, but it does seem impossible for any of us who have a conservative or traditional RM view to be able to post that view without certain ones going into hysterics. That's not to say that we haven't thrown some stones back - we have, and we should exercise better self-control.

But it's almost impossible to have a civil discussion on these boards on any of these cherished beliefs (baptism in particular) without being called "water-regenerationists" or simple unenlightened folk in need of the sympathy of our more progressive, more enlightened brothers. If people continually roam these boards looking for a fight, it will be impossible for any of "us" to post what we believe and have a civil discussion.

I think the answer would be to simply ignore the attack dogs. When they post, don't take the bait (as I at times have), but ignore their spiteful posts and simply reply to the civil ones as though the agitator never even posted. They post trash, we respond to the person who posted before them as though they never even entered the conversation. Now, that might work!

Ok here is where I show bible college education at work. What is water-regeneration? I have heard that term passed around here alot lately but honestly do not know what it is.

I don't think I want to be one.

What gets my undies in a wad is being called a legalist?

To me that is worse than being called a liberal.

Simply put: water-regenerationists believe it is the water that saves you.

It's a sacramental view of baptism that believes that taking a bath saves you (even absent of faith repentance etc.) That is not what most of us - I'd guess none of us - on these boards believe. But the moment we begin to talk about baptisms role in the salvation process - especially as described in Acts 2:38 - the easy thing for those who disagree is to simply call us a name (that being "water regenerationists"). It's a cop-out and it squelches further profitable discussion.

It was at the National Preaching Summit two years ago I think, it was in Indianapolis. It might have been three years ago. That is the only real thing I remember from that Summit.

I remember it because it was and so true and real to my situtation at the time.

Hunter,
For the most part I would recommend it highly. There are always some low points and some High points. There are somethings that you wish you did not have to sit through and others that you wish would never come to an end. I have been to the last 4 (since I started preaching) and will go again this year. I have not received any details as of yet, but it is usally in March in Indy.

The link below will take you to the College Press website. The dates are March 12-13, 2007. Of the 4 I have been to only one I thought was not worth it. Of course that is my humble opinion

How is it that many threads that have nothing to do with baptism become about baptism and have this same post over and over? God expects much from his senior saints. Lets make sure we are leading by example.

Perhaps, if you have a strong desire to discuss leadership without the main foundation, you should try a business school's website. Your intial plea on this thread was to discuss in a godly way, and yet you now are telling Pappy that he is setting a bad example by reminding us about that foundation. Such an approach belongs over on the dark side, not here, and violates your initial plan. With this turn of events, the thread might as well be called "Walk like an Egyptian."

By the way...most of us on CCT, and especially on the lighter side, appreciate the reminders, so thanks, Pat.

Normally I grab a cart and take it in with me at Wal-Mart, to help out the cart shagger.

But this time his evil inspired me, and I didn't take a cart in, and when I left, I took one out and left it in the parking lot.


and not in the cart corral either!

I just wanted to go back and see what started this whole train wreck.

And there it is. No wonder it's been such a mess.

How do you debate in a godly way? Does the Trinity each take a cloud and argue?

When I was a kid I wondered if God ever went fishing. In my mind, as I sat on a warm creek-bank in central Kansas, I couldn't imagine God not taking time to fish.

Now I'm confronted with "debate in a godly way". I just don't see it.

Now, I can relate to debating like Mom taught me to do a million other things. Be kind, watch your manners and don't say anything you wouldn't want said about you.
