Origins[ edit ] Baptist historian Bruce Gourley outlines four main views of Baptist origins: Both individuals and churches were willing to give up their theological roots if they became convinced that a more biblical “truth” had been discovered. There were some Christians who were not content with the achievements of the mainstream Protestant Reformation. Of those most critical of the Church’s direction, some chose to stay and try to make constructive changes from within the Anglican Church. They became known as ” Puritans ” and are described by Gourley as cousins of the English Separatists. Others decided they must leave the Church because of their dissatisfaction and became known as the Separatists. Reared in the Church of England, he became “Puritan, English Separatist, and then a Baptist Separatist,” and ended his days working with the Mennonites. Smyth and his lay supporter, Thomas Helwys , together with those they led, broke with the other English exiles because Smyth and Helwys were convinced they should be baptized as believers. In Smyth first baptized himself and then baptized the others.

The Preaching of St. John the Baptist by Pieter Bruegel the Elder The Gospel of Mark introduces John as a fulfilment of a prophecy from the Book of Isaiah in fact, a conflation of texts from Isaiah, Malachi and Exodus  about a messenger being sent ahead, and a voice crying out in the wilderness. John is described as wearing clothes of camel’s hair, living on locusts and wild honey.
John proclaims baptism of repentance for the forgiveness of sin, and says another will come after him who will not baptize with water, but with the Holy Spirit. Jesus comes to John, and is baptized by him in the river Jordan. The account describes how; as he emerges from the water, the heavens open and the Holy Spirit descends on him ‘like a dove’.
A voice from heaven then says, “You are my Son, the Beloved; with you I am well pleased. It is introduced by an incident where the Tetrarch Herod Antipas , hearing stories about Jesus, imagines that this is John the Baptist raised from the dead. It then explains that John had rebuked Herod for marrying Herodias , the ex-wife of his brother named here as Philip. Herodias demands his execution, but Herod, who ‘liked to listen’ to John, is reluctant to do so because he fears him, knowing he is a ‘righteous and holy man’.
The account then describes how Herod’s daughter Herodias NRSV ; other translations refer to the girl as the daughter of Herodias dances before Herod, who is pleased and offers her anything she asks for in return. When the girl asks her mother what she should request, she is told to demand the head of John the Baptist. Reluctantly, Herod orders the beheading of John, and his head is delivered to her, at her request, on a plate.
John’s disciples take the body away and bury it in a tomb.

These believers have an individual relationship with God. This view, known as the priesthood of believers, is a foundational issue for the Baptist faith. Since the beginnings of Baptist thought, this individual freedom has been a basis of doctrine. Because of this insistence on individual conscience, Baptists have always rejected formal, binding creeds. Refusing to hold such creeds as infallible, Baptists have suffered persecution. Banishments, torture, and even executions fill Baptist history.

History[ edit ] George Leile , a slave who in was the first African American licensed by the Baptists to preach in Georgia , played a part in the founding of the Savannah church by converting some of its early members. His initial licensing as a Baptist was to preach to slaves on plantations along the Savannah River , in Georgia and South Carolina.
Leile’s master, a Baptist deacon , had freed him before the American Revolutionary War. Over the next few years, Leile converted and baptized slaves in the area. George was appointed an elder and preacher, and attracted nearly 30 members over the next few years. After the Revolutionary War started, in Leile made his way to the British-occupied city of Savannah, to ensure his security behind British lines.

This forum is living proof that those who are KJVO and those who are not have a hard time getting along. If that is a conviction she holds dear then she should find somebody that feels the same. I wouldnt make it the number one criteria but it should be highly considered if that is a deeply held conviction. Larry you know you would start an arguement by claiming that those who are KJVO do not have a high regard for the Word of God.
That was a cheap shot in my opinion due to the fact that it wasn’t even the main point of her thread. I know lots and lots of pastors who use the KJV and their greek testament to do their study. They just don’t feel comfortable using more recent versions. They are very Godly men who have a very high regard for Scripture.
