Some Conservative Evangelicals Seem Closer to Fundamentalism Than You Might Think...

3. Gay marriage supporters have become the new fundamentalists. They require not merely tolerance of gay marriage, but total approval and endorsement.

This kind of rhetoric reminds me of some of the comparisons I heard from fundamentalists when they made uncharitable comments about evangelicals. Irony.

“A Conservative Christian Declaration”

Religious Affections Ministries released something called "A Conservative Christian Declaration" yesterday, and I was curious to get feedback on it.  I read portions of it last night, and (as seems to be usual with RAM) agree with portions of it and scratch my head at other sections.

Dealing with Sexual abuse in the church


After years of being a member of SI, I am finally starting a thread.  The above article is important for all of us, but especially those of us who are pastors.  I have met and several conversations with the lady in the article.  Her story is very tragic, and yet, she has still kept her faith.  I know we have discussed this issue at length, but this article sheds light and I believe is an important one for us to discuss.

Hamilton Square Baptist Church: A Historic Northern Regular Baptist Church

Hamilton Square Baptist Church

A Historic Northern Regular Baptist Church

By Robert K. Fall

Church Historian


The subtitle of this article is based on what I answer when I’m asked kind of church I attend.  This is a mouthful and throws my questioner off his\her train of thought.  The usual answers include, “An Independent Fundamental Baptist Church”, “A Southern Baptist Church,” “A Conservative Baptist Church,” ect.
