Shall I be a Great Commission Baptist or a Southern Great Commission Baptist? or a North of the Mason Dixon Line Great Commission Baptist? or an Southern Oklahoma Great Commission Baptist? Well, uh...I think I'm just a Christian in a convention of Southern Baptist churches who believes Jesus said to go into all the world and tell others about Him and to baptize them in HIS name and teach them to observe all things He said and did, so that they will also go and tell.
Maybe we oughta be "Go-Baptists". Or Go-and-Tell-and-Baptize-Disciples.
Should I say I'm not a Southern Baptist 'cause well, they use to believe in slavery?
And I'm not a Southern Baptist because they offend folks with their narrow-minded stubborn adherence to Scripture?
And I'm not a Southern Baptist because well, they argue too much and they just aren't perfect?
Yeah! I wanna be identified with a group of Believers who are perfect. Oh, wait, not one of us is righteous...outside of the righteousness of Christ. Our righteousness is as filthy rags. But...there is hope.
"For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus." Philippians 1:6
Call me, uh...selahV today. I'm not finished yet.
