Absolutely not any of my fellow Baptists believe that. We believe that anyone is capable of going to heaven that accepts Christ as their savior. No matter what "religion" they are.

I have been a Baptist all my life and I have never heard of any that believe that way. It's all about Jesus, not denominations. There may be some that do, but they are in the minority because it isn't what Baptists believe.

Baptists just don't approve of dancing because it looks too much like sex standing up.

All religions think in some way that they are the only ones even if it is just that Christians are the only ones going to heaven. All are similar to CoC on this; the CoC do not try to keep it a secret and others are more subtle. The message is still there if you listen.

What is confusing you? I said in a previous post that if God decided to save Gandhi it was of no effect to me. The simple fact that God makes a decision to save puts one in Christ's fold. Most would say that you can only be saved through Christ and if you are not one of his followers you are doomed. Meaning if you are not a Christian you are going to hell. I believe I will leave that to God. I believe Jesus even mentions those of another fold. I just try not to say this is this no exceptions as I am of no authority to decided one thing. God has all power and his decisions will not be in conflict with anything I might believe. They might conflict with my understanding but who am I to try and limit God? You see I make no claim as to having it figured out. Is is much easier for me to see when things are said that are not true or there might be exceptions. People take their understanding of things and try and limit what God did or does simply because of their understanding. What it is is usually their misunderstanding. An example is your belief of the creation and how you have decided it to be because of your understanding and to me it could be your lack of understanding. You simply have to have a young earth or your beliefs well melt. I am not even sure that evolution violates the creation mentioned in the bible. Too many say if it is not in the bible it did not occur as if it is God's duty to inform them of all his workings. This could be seen as self importance ruling our thought. I try not to let my lack of understanding limit what the true power of God and his workings are. Too many are just the opposite. Do you really understand the mystery of God? If the World is millions of years old does that really change one thing? We are furnished with enough information to do as needs to be done toward God but not very informed as to the mysteries of God.

No just one way. God adds those to the church such as should be saved. This is the only way. Many will say that you have to be christian or you are going to hell. What I say is if God makes the decision to add you to the church you automatically become Christ. This means that if God were to decide to save one like Gandhi it would not be a violation of my beliefs. All power to God none to me. Who am I to try and limit his power. Whether he does this or not I make no claims. Remember you are the one with the answers and have it figured out. I am one with many things not answered, but do not intend on limiting God.

I thought I was the only one,who talked in circles. Lol
If God saves Gandi,then Gandi would be a christian,would He not?
You say you don't limit God,and thats true-no one can,yet you turn around and say it's our free will,and good works that get us to Heaven?
I simply say it's God,that gets us to Heaven.
I know how you think,I to have had those same thoughts. This is why you realy should be around other Christian men,as Iron sharpens Iron,remember?
Now if you are reading an NIV it will say things like"little children how hard it is to enter the kingdom of God". Same verse in the KJV says little children how hard it is "for those who trust in riches" to enter the kingdom of God. The same mess happens when Philip and the eunich is talking,the niv goes straight to the baptism,and will skip an entire verse about believing on Jesus,why? Could be that the coc had alot to do,with the NIV? God will open the scriptures to you,and help you rightly divide. I also don't have "it" all fiquered out,but I am teachable,and when I am wrong,I will recant what I have said about that,but when it comes to salvation I am right,and will never recant on that one.
Now talking about "walking the walk"
right after I was saved I had my tv cut off,and went 7 years without it,I would not even give my dogs water on Sunday,if I had forgotten to the day before,I became very legalist for a time.
This stuff is'nt just hard to live by,it's impossible,and you spend all your time thinking about"you".

Do you believe that opportunities afforded you may put you in a different situation then one who may never have heard the word all all?

I have never said that works save. You are the one deciding what is a work. You say to be baptized because you believe is a work but believing is not a work. You say this because of what reason? Why not just say the grace covers all and all are going to heaven no matter who or what they are. No requirements necessary the grace saves all including Hitler. Anything less would be a work on our part. I say baptism is not a work it just opens the door to grace. It could be required if the circumstances are such that you could have taken advantage of that opportunity. Gold still has power to save those he sees as should be saved even if they are not held to the same requirement as me. Circumstances could be different. Even ability to understand is a factor. Do you think God will hold a person responsible for something he had no capability to understand. Now I am not going to use examples of what would happen about the iron lung or death bed confession and base my doctrine on such convoluted outcomes.

I have no problems with someone being baptized,and realy do not view it as a work,in the scope of things,it realy is not much at all to ask. We should do our reasonable service,but most who say baptism "triggers" grace,don't stop at that.
They have other vague things,that they say you must do.
At the same time ,they can't tell you where the "drop point"is?
They feel by attending church,being baptized,partaking in the Lord's supper,and bing a "good person" that they are ok,like you have said,you are ok,but it's the other guy,you know "that guy" that may be in trouble. Lol
now we need to know what the way to Heaven is,which is Jesus was born of a virgin-lived a perfect life-took on the sins of world,died on the cross,and rose again. Now if any other man,angel,or anything preaches any other gospel,then I am suppose to let them be accursed.
Romans talks about what you are referring to,when you speak of someone who has never heard the gospel. Just what we see around us,is enough to let them know,that there was a creator,and that there is a higher power.

Yes it is true. I have many Baptist friends that have told me that over and over. My best friend and her family is Church of Christ and they do NOT beleive that for the person who posted that. I am Methodist and have asked my Baptist friends to read their bible and not to say that but they do not agree with me.

there are many baptist that will go,and many who will not. Same in All denominations.
Those who have tne Son hath life,those who have not the Son of God hath not life. Pretty simple,yet to so many,very complicated.
