southern baptists are so judgemental. they attempt to make themselves appear righteous by tearing everyone else down, pointing their critical finger and sending others to hell based on their man-made doctrines. they continually nit pick yet ignore compassion for others. their behavior is truly reprehensible.

That can be said about every denomination out there. Not all Baptist are like that.
Then again you may not like them b/c they point out sin. Take homosexuality for example. The bible clearly states its a sin but Christians are called homophobes and bigots if they speak out against it.

By the way aren't you being judgmental your ownself?

pointing to the scriptures to prove wrong behavior is just fine, as in the example that you mentioned regarding homosexuality. however, going beyond what is written and hating people rather than behavior and finding great satisfaction in contemplating the eternal torture of those unlike yourelf is what the southern baptist churchians do. this is not christian behavior. it is self-proclaimed righteousness based solely on the opinion of imperfect people who have made themselves judge and executioner in place of god. satan and his demon hoards are the only others who find such delight in human suffering.

Yes there are some selfrighteous people in the southern baptist church just like in the Presbyterian, Catholic,Pentecostal,andghe non-denominational denomination. I don't see how you can say all Southern Baptist are selfrighteous.

to begin, all that i've had the displeasure of knowing are and as a denomination the one thing that they are in agreement about is their view of themselves in relation to others. sbs are the most vocal and pushy of the other denominations. yes, there are others who are self-righteous but not to the extent that sbs are. besides, i've never heard a presbyterian put others in hell. the catholics also hate everyone but themselves but are not so cocky anymore because of their current scandals. pentecostals are just exciteable. none of them preach from their pulpits the glory of watching others suffer forever in hell as they wach from heaven. this is a fundamenal subject in the sbc and their adherants eat it up.

I completely agree about SBs! Never have I known a more arrogant group of religious hypocrites. Seems, though, that they cannot be defended very easily since there is such a glaring absence of defenders on this forum...hahaha....no surprize.

My expereance with Baptists have all been very negitive , yes I find them very self rightous & hard headed ( my way or the highway ) I now avoid them at all cost . I know they cant all be like that but my time with them has been very negitive , & unable to carry on a decent conversation ( about God ) with them .

I've been a southern baptist for thirty years an have never heard one preacher preach the glory of watching others go to hell or put someone in hell. What denomination are you?
I've had people from the church of Christ tell me I was going to hell b/c I worship in a Baptist church. All the pastors and preachers I've heard preach Gods word. They preach if you don't have Christ as Lord and Savior you will go to hell. If you have a problem with that then you have a problem with my Lord. You talk about Baptists being judgemental why look in the mirror and stop judging.

I'm so sorry to hear that you are a baptist. I am no denomination. All the churches are hypocritical and full of hate, judgement and self-righteousness. Baptists may 'preach' Christ but they, none of them, live it! And the foundational and fundemental teaching and belief of the sbs is hellfire. They may not outwardly speak about it the way they used to but all I hear from the MANY I've had the displeasure of talking to us hellfire, torture and suffering forever for those they feel are deserving of that. They all also spoke of it as a time they greatly look forward to.

Correct and I believe that the OP (Original Poster) may actually be one of them.

Jesus said this:

John 13:35 By this shall all [men] know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

I ask: If the OP is a Christian should he not want to speak better of other self professing Christians? Otherwise has he not gone and done the thing he detest the most and acted like he was better than the other guy?

Luke 18:9-14 To some who were confident of their own righteousness and looked down on everybody else, Jesus told this parable: 10“Two men went up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisee and the other a tax collector. 11The Pharisee stood up and prayed about himself:‘God, I thank you that I am not like other men—robbers, evildoers, adulterers—or even like this tax collector. 12I fast twice a week and give a tenth of all I get.’

13“But the tax collector stood at a distance. He would not even look up to heaven, but beat his breast and said,‘God, have mercy on me, a sinner.’

14“I tell you that this man, rather than the other, went home justified before God. For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”

There is much to be learned from this; our Lord's words and BTW - this baptist owns no righteousness but that of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Given freely to me but He had to die for me to get it.

For His Namesake, PRAISE KING JESUS! PRAISE HIS HOLY NAME!!

Unfortunately what the OP said is more often than not a true observation. In fact, it's for that reason and some others that I felt it necessary to discontinue attending the sb church. This is not to say all are this way but my personal experience was very bad. It wasn't just 1 church or just a few people that were that way.

If that is true then that is truely a shame.

You are all welcome to attend my church. We have a very down to earth loving church family.

And we don't call ourselves southern baptist - we are in the south so we are just called baptist.

Jesus calls you by a new name , why would you exalt the name baptist over the new name that He calls you by. You probably don't know that name.

What is the new name He calls us by? Oh yeah you were baptized in the name of the father son and holy ghost. So you have counted your self unworthy of the new name. Why do baptist do that?

Judging from most (not all) that I have read on these chat boards, Satan must be happy. Christians are cutting each other to shreds. One other thing I wonder, why does Soutern Baptist Forum have horoscopes in the right margins of its threds? And why do so many fail to use proper English?
