Found this and just figured I'd share.


C. H. Spurgeon on Baptist Perpetuity

"We believe that the Baptists are the original Christians. We did not commence our existence at the reformation, we were reformers before Luther or Calvin were born; we never came from the Church of Rome, for we were never in it, but we have an unbroken line up to the apostles themselves. We have always existed from the very days of Christ, and our principles, sometimes veiled and forgotten, like a river which may travel underground for a little season, have always had honest and holy adherents. Persecuted alike by Romanists and Protestants of almost every sect, yet there has never existed a Government holding Baptist principles which persecuted others; nor I believe any body of Baptists ever held it to be right to put the consciences of others under the control of man. We have ever been ready to suffer, as our martyrologies will prove, but we are not ready to accept any help from the State, to prostitute the purity of the Bride of Christ to any alliance with the government, and we will never make the Church, although the Queen, the despot over the consciences of men". (From The New Park Street Pulpit, Vol.VII, Page 225).

Good read Brian but I think many of the congregations have let politics in the pulpits in the last couple of decades and have indeed allied themselves with the government.

Dunno about allied? Politics in the pulpits is a must in the sense of having a voice in it! Allied in the sense of a state religion? No way!

Over time you will see the Baptist part of sign be replaced with "Christian" or other spiritual type sayings.

Or not. Most of us are independent

The problem is that nowadays the name "Baptist" doesn't mean much. Baptists today run the range from David Duke to Jesse Jackson; I think even "Reverend Al" is a Baptist.

All those naysayers about religion in general should thank the Baptists for the fact that we don't have a Government run church. In the early days of our Country it was the Baptists from western Pennsylvania who vehemently protested the idea of establishing a State religion. I think it was the Congregationalist Church that we almost had for an official State church.

You had better have thick skin if you want to get involved with running a Baptist church. Baptists really do love to spar with each other; sometimes about the dumbest things, like what color to paint the church. Baptist hate hierarchy.

Yeah

Read some early stories about Baptist who were persecuted here before we gained our Independence! Some rough neck individuals. Was no backing down they knew of.

Read one story about a guy they beat so long and so hard in a prison because he wouldn't renounce Christ. The inmates ended up fighting the jailers on his behalf.
