I've watched a couple of his resent sermons on TV and he is one sermon away from being a Christian version of the Taliban.

Why are otherwise reasonable prople listening to him?

Not sure. I have distant relatives that go to this church and in the past they were reasonable people, as you said. Now my family refers to these as the cult worshippers and are sure that they've gone "round the bend".

I can't even listen to the ads on the radio. I turn him off and would love to not ever have to hear his name again. I lost all respect for the man when he started the smear campaign against the owner of Oddities years ago.

I agree. He's nuts and distributes kool-aid...

I am amazed people sit there in that church and listen to that mess and don't stop going there.

Reminds me of Obama and how he sat there through all of the hateful sermons from Jeremiah Wright. I know it was his church, but at some point, you have to listen to what you are hearing and realize how ungodly it is.

You may not be able to fix it, but you can not participate in it and approve it through you attendance.

Even worse, for parents to let their kids takeaway this world view. Its going to leave them scared for life when later they realize what their parents condoned.

Think people. THINK!!!!

We sure do get our panties in a wad when someone's views are different than ours, don't we? I have never met another Southern Baptist who didn't.

Its amazing how we are so quick to judge everyone but ourselves and the group we identify with.

Until these people start Jihads, I know I'm not going to hate on them. Any of you who claim to be Christian should chose not to as well.

Judge and you will be judged with the same measures. Even on anonymous topix, God knows.

Brother Dwayne seems to have this obsession with the devil. I don't think you can believe in one without the other. If the love of God doesn't trump the power of the devil where does that leave us.

Southern Baptist that remains tolerant on others' particular viewpoints and beliefs - RIGHT HERE! ;) The reason you don't hear from some Southern Baptist is because of the bad reputation caused by just a few. As all brothers/sisters in Christ, people fail to realize that many denominations, Baptist and Methodist included, were sprung up from the 1870's Women's Temperance movement. Even Joseph Smith's Mormon faith outdates it! It does not matter what particular denomination that you are, but that you keep your faith and provide opportunities for others to come to know Christ. If someone rejects that opportunity, it is not our responsibility to be hateful, but accepting. Love your brothers and sisters, but despise the sin. God will handle the rest. It is just as sinful to start protests and deter people from Christ just as it is to live an unclean lifestyle.

With that said, from what I have heard, those that protested the Chippendales were peaceful, and I am grateful that we have people that join to oppose a cause in an adult manner. With what is seen in Westboro, KS, we are lucky to have such respectable people that can keep cool heads. Just don't let the crazy venom infiltrate our town.

If he was in it for the money he sure wouldn't be living in the modest house he lives in, driving used vehicles and spending most of his free time with his family. I have known him for many years. Do I agree with everything he preaches? No, but I know he has a heart for people and I have no doubt he loves Debbie and those kids and would do anything for them. That says enough for me. Leave them alone.

First I'm not a Southern Baptist. Second, as I said in the original post, he is just one sermon away from calling for just that. Finally it is, from the sermons I've heard, Bro. Dwayne that is the one that is quick to judge anyone who doesn't believe EXACTLY as he does. Hence the Christian Taliban reference.

And it is just a matter of time before one of his empty headed followers infers that he is calling for Jihad against something and does something stupid.

And don't get me wrong, Bro. Dwayne has the right to believe and say what ever he wants. But it is because good Muslims don't speak out against the fundamentalist wackos that all Muslims are thought of as terrorist. So, I and others have the right, no duty to say that we think he is nuts as well and to try to get people not to listen to his crazy ramblings.

Every few weeks someone starts up on Cross life Church. This is a strange obsession. There are lots of people I don't agree with so.....I don't listen or go around them. As far a s I know no one can make you listen nor attend any church or organization. I don't attend Jehovah's witnesses nor Morman nor Catholic churches for example. They haven't forced me too either. I have never attended Cross Life. I don't know the pastor. So what is this obsession with Cross Life about? This constant yammering about them is stranger than any cult. If you don't agree with them, then don't go around them or listen to them. Give it a rest.

I'm sure there are many of those who beleive in Islam that said pretty much the exact same thing about radical Islam 30-40 years ago.

mymy, you got me to thinking of Southern Baptists. I grew up one, going to tent revivals, VBC, the whole shebang. Got growed up and saw all the little games going on with the so-called leaders and deacons. What a mess! Finally quit going to church at all. But, still had these three deacons on my bowling team. I'd bring a bottle of Jim Beam hid out in my bowling bag to the lanes. All three of them deacons wanted a drink, but had to hid it from the other two. I was constantly slipping my locker key to one of them. Fast as he'd get back with a spiked coke, another would want that key. What a farce! By the end of the night, the quart would be gone and them deacons would be slurring their words, slobber dribbling down their chin, and grinning like a fool thinking the others didn't know. I loved being a Baptist. Baptistry and Bowling go together like a horse and carriage.

Wikipedia - Baptists in North America

Roger Williams and John Clarke, his compatriot in working for religious freedom, are variously credited as founding the earliest Baptist church in North America.[27] In 1639, Williams established a Baptist church in Providence, Rhode Island, and Clarke began a Baptist church in Newport, Rhode Island. According to a Baptist historian who has researched the matter extensively, "There is much debate over the centuries as to whether the Providence or Newport church deserved the place of 'first' Baptist congregation in America. Exact records for both congregations are lacking."[11]

The Great Awakening energized the Baptist movement, and the Baptist community experienced spectacular growth. Baptists became the largest Christian community in many southern states, including among the black population.[3]

In 1845, the Baptists congregations in the United States split over three main issues: slavery, missions, and doctrinal integrity. The northern congregations were opposed to members in the southern congregations owning slaves, and tried to prevent slaveholders from being missionaries. However, not appointing a proportionate number of missionaries to the southern region of the US sparked animosity from the southern churches. The southern congregations were also concerned over perceived liberalism in the north, accusing some missionaries of denying virgin birth and divinity of Jesus. The split created the Southern Baptist Convention, while the northern congregations, then known as Northern Baptists, formed their own umbrella organization now called the American Baptist Churches of the USA (ABC-USA).

After the American Civil War, another split occurred: most black Baptists in the South separated from white churches and set up their own congregations. In the late 1860s, they rapidly set up several separate state conventions. In 1895 their three national conventions merged into the National Baptist Convention. With 8 million members, it is the largest African-American religious organization and is second in size to the Southern Baptist Convention.
