I am a member of God's church and will rejoice that my name is written in the Lambs book of Life.
Why do any of you care what one church does or another or whos right or wrong, There is Only ONE right and that is God. If we can't get along down here, how do you expect to get along Up there.

My dad has been a member of Old Regular for 46 years,, My mom (who has been married to dad for 47 years) heard God tell her it was time to be Saved in a Free Will Baptist, My sister is a United Baptist, I myself Free Will Baptist, Some of My other People are Penacostal...We all Love eachother very much,
I have attended all these churchs and I find that GOD is Present in Everyone , If they are standing on the Truth.
Though we may see things in other churchs that we dont agree with , Who are we to Judge...
God said let the Tares grow with the wheat , He will sort them out in the end.....
Lets just Love thy Brother...(and Sister)....

One thing about it Bro. Mike still speaks how he feels, not hiding his name. To the writer that said he should get back into fellowship with the Northern New Salem, well it appears to me the association has had steady decline each year as to most churches. Folks JEALOSY has not crept in it has made itself at home in the old baptist we have let it take over destroying many of the great men God has called. Paul spoke of himself as the cheif when it came to sinners and said in prison he was a stranger not but through it all still spoke he the truth and warned us of how things would come to pass. Wake up and realize things will not get better we are nearing the end and soon the war will be over and the victory won! Stop your idol tounges and your judgemental hearts and try to enjoy your salvation when the bible spoke woe unto the nation that forgets God, he wasnt speaking of a part of the world. When he said for all has sinned and came short he wasnt talking to the world you cant come short of something you dont have. It's not us but God, you show me what you had to do with being born into this natural world and Ill show you what you had to do with being born into the household of faith.
I Love you all I was raised old baptist and not ashamed of it, however it's rough on a blessed person with true gifts from heaven. Folks we have let men with little knowledge of the truth have to much control, instead of the truth being their guide they use the feeble mind and murder people. As Eld. Woody Pack always discoursed "I dont much, but do the best you can and that will be bad enough, If the Ritcheous scaresley be saved where shall the sinner and ungodly appear" ? Folks, the one at the mill and the one in the bed has already been taken.

I had to write in regard to the negative comments directed toward several of the Old Regular Baptist brethren.

I am a Primitive Baptist and I feel no need to force my opinion on anyone, likewise I do not appreciate anyone attempting to impose on my beliefs. I think that it is necessary to avoid conflict and confusion when at all possible.

However, I do not feel that one should neglect CHURCH DISCIPLINE for "so called peace." We are instructed to get along with one another and we are also instructed to MARK THEM WHICH CAUSE DIVISION. Mark 16:17'18

I have read many comments regarding the "traditions of men" in regards to the Old REgular Baptist brethren. Friends, I do not fully know or understand the conflicts which brought about this division, but can assure you that it was not OF THE LORD!

Furthermore, concerning traditions of men, the old fashioned tent revival is not so old fashioned, the mourners bench, Sunday Schools, Bible Study meetings and Youth Pastors are all relatively NEW INVENTIONS OF MEN! I am not pointing these things out to create arguments, only to prove a point. It is rather foolish for people to speak negatively about the Old Regular Baptist and the Primitive Baptist as well when many orders and denominations today are swamped by NEW INVENTIONS OF MAN.

A simple litmus test would be to ask yourself a question, when did these practices come into play?

For example, the first Sunday School was instituted in Kettering England in the late 1800's. That would put them about 1800 years to late to have been directed and ordered of the Lord, therefore we should ask the question, who else is following after the vain traditions and inventions of man?

You see by asking certain questions we find out that none of us are as perfect and holy as we might want to think. Most of the time when we find fault with others it is because we fail to see the fault within ourselves.

Let us not ridicule one group because of their peculiar ways, instead let us examine ourselves and try to seek out the purpose of our ways. By asking ourselves the question; am I doing this because I can find precept and example in the bible for it or am I practicing my faith based on customs of men or inventions of men?

I think that when you carefully examine this question, you will find that the Old Regulars and the Primitives are trying their best to adhere to the letter of the WRITTEN WORD and their "Old Foggey" ways are based on a SIMPLE form of worship, preaching, praying and singing! I see no precept nor example in the bible for these other institutions that are so commonly glorified by others.

These brethren more resemble Apostolic worship practices than do many others and I feel that to be found in the company of those brethren would be considered pretty good company!

Aside from Preaching, praying and singing, you will not find any other mode, method or instruction for Worship in the house of the Lord. Therefore, I ask is that something to ridicule, God forbid! It is something beautiful and something that is honoring to God and His Church.

I do not feel for one minute that brother Slone is indicating what you are suggesting.

On the contrary, the Church is Universal (it includes people of every nation kindred and tongue)it is also invisible by that nature. In other words it exists in the world, but cannot be identified by a name over a church door or by having your name on a church book. The visible church are the members that attend church and can be recognized by us as church members. We cannot discern a Child of God from an imposter in some cases. That is why it is not ours to judge but the Lords.

There will be people in Hell that were nothing more than "evil men who crept in unawares" here in our churches. But the Lord will separate them in the Last day.

How very sad. Why would a church turn it's back on anyone? Instead of concentrating on how to get rid of people it makes more sense to try to bring more people in.
Who gave these people or any person the right to decide what and whom should worship?
Thank goodness Jesus forgives us.

Please pray for the post from redneck, only a fool says there is no god. Who ever you are you must have had a bad experiance in your life and was directed by a false profit. May God help you to see there is life in him and he is real. Call on him and taste his goodness and pray that his mercies are still abounding to you.

No one knows the pain I have went through but blaming others and pointing fingers never helped but rather staying humble and pressing on has gave me more strenghth than anything I count it joy and it has paid off. We are not promised an easy road here but rather given a true hope of a better place than this. Our God is an awesome God.

There is only ONE GOD, ONE HEAVEN , All who think there is a Old Regular Babtist Box,A Pentecostal box, a methodist box, and all other religons are in for a suprise, also There is A LIVING GOD. Theres also A HELL and a HOT one. I can only tell someone about GOD, if they choose to reject him I will not be accountable for their soul, as I can only tell them about GOD. I know what he has done in my life. Those who say There is no GOD have come to late to convince me otherwise. The BIBLE says all will give account for all they do,good or bad. Without FAITH it is IMPOSSIBLE to please GOD. Why do the Old Regular Baptist not have any thing to do with other religions, theres other demonations who do the same. Didn't JESUS eat with sinners.

My gracious- you are one of those that thinks no one is right but you and I take offense at remarks made concerning my grandmother because I know that she and my aunt are in Heaven. I will not argue with you or waste my time on replying to your comments. You are in for a surprise when you get to Heaven and find out we are all there. You need to educate yourself on the true meaning of the Biblical passages before you pass judgement. Do you plan on fellowshipping with all of us if you make it to Heaven? I pray that the Lord will enlighten you. You should not be judging us. I do obey the word and live for the Lord daily and I do my best to be a good example before my neighbors and family. I am glad that God is the final authority instead of you. Don't bother to rply to this because I am not going to argue with you because it isn't pleasing to the Lord
Sounds to me like he will not be making the trip. Nobody knows what is in a persons heart but GOD. They killed Jesus they thought they were doing GOD a favor by killing his only begotten son. Most of todays rules that men follow are just that RULES OF MEN

I have never went to an Old Regular Baptist service. I was at a funeral recently and the "preacher" (?) who was an old regular baptist spoke (?).

I didn't understand what the message was about....why he kept making a noise with his throat.....hollering..... saying words over and over.

Instead of saying comforting words about the death of a wonderful person, he kept shouting words over and over.

I looked at the other people and you could see they were tense and not comforted at all. How sad.

Dear brother if you believe for one minute that the Baptist Church did not exist before the 1600's you are terribly wrong. The Baptist Church has roots all the way back to John the Baptist. Any professor of History or a Professor of Religion will tell you that the Baptist faith as some would call it, has been around for a considerable amount of time.

Although, the name has changed throughout the years, the practice has remained the same. The Church is not identified by the name above the door but by conduct, discipline, and practice that takes place within it.

May God bless,

I would also like to point out that the beloved Alexander Campbell was baptized by an Old Baptist Elder, because at that time there did not exist a C.O.C. minister that could perform the duties.

The patriarch of the C.O.C. was baptized by a Baptist!

"Alexander Campbell's family background was Presbyterian (they were from Scotland), but he and his father became Baptists in 1812. Campbell became a popular Baptist preacher and editor of a widely circulated paper, The Christian Baptist. Rejecting a variety of elements in the Baptist churches of his time, Campbell later formed the Churches of Christ denomination. Campbell rejected infant baptism and confessions of faith, especially the Philadelphia Confession of Faith (1742). Campbell's maxim was "Where the Bible speaks, we speak; where the Bible is silent, we are silent."

It is not appropriate to throw stones and then not acknowledge the truth, especially when the the stones are falling upon ones own house.

I feel religion is a personal preference. I also feel that each denomination is ruled by man made rules more than the teachings of the Bible. To many people put their trust and faith in preachers instead of God. Believe me I have seen what can happen to a congregation mislead by deceivers. As for the Old Regular Baptist church, I know many people who belong to it. I for one do not believe in their doctrine, or their methods. I feel they spend to much time talking about their experiences and how they feel. Very little of the bible is used in their preaching. I feel they mean well, but it is nothing I would want to be a part of. I feel as the older members pass away, the Old Regular Baptist Churches will eventually dwindle away. The younger people will not go there. I do not hold anything against any of the people who belong to the ORB church. I feel it is wonderful that they express their religious beliefs. They just aren't for me.
