Two Proposed Revisions to The Baptist Faith and Message

Both of those revisions seem

Both of those revisions seem justified (no pun intended). If I was a SB I would also want some revision to the fatherhood section to clarify that God is not the Father of the unbeliever. Never knew that the BFAM was based on the New Hampshire!

No, I was not responding to any post.  I had in mind working on my own statement of faith for ordination, and then revising our church's doctrinal statement.  I felt a tension between declaring succinctly what I/we believe on the main things, yet feeling at every point that I needed to add a sentence or two about this, or a paragraph about that.  At the rate I was going, I would have produced a small book.
