No joke, our church's official start time for Sunday School is 945 but it doesn't start till 9 because it takes 15 min for buses get in and kids settled for the service.

...You criticize religions that say their religion is the only way to heaven, but then you act like Baptist are the only ones who will be there.

🤭 Did I just say that?

If you make it to heaven then you were Baptist even if you didn't realize it.

You do realize that Baptist are not the only ones who believe Biblical salvation, right? If you have Biblical salvation correct, but you don't hold other Baptistic doctrine, you aren't a Baptist.

Speaking of Independent Baptist, The autonomy of the the church.

Furthermore, you can believe in Baptism through some other form than emersion without believing it to be necessary for salvation.

And what group would that be? And what would that group say Baptism represents?

Not speaking of a group, but rather of an individual.

Ah, so a person with private interpretations. Anything is possible to believe even when its not consistent with any tradition of faith. However legitimate baptism requires a church to join which practices it. If no church practices what an individual believes about baptism then its an opinion on a church matter that doesn't matter.

Never said the person was right, I just said they can still go to heaven. Baptists will not be the only ones in heaven. And contrary to what some may believe, All the Christians in the world that have the right doctrine are not necessarily Baptist. Look, I'm an Independent Baptist. I know why I'm an Independent Baptist, and I will most likely be an Independent Baptist until the day I die. But I'm Baptist Because I'm a Bible believer, I'm not a Bible Believer because I'm a Baptist. 

Anyway, I digress. I wouldn't have pursued this dialog except for the fact that is the personification of exactly what I said. Independent Baptist seem to think they'll be the only ones in Heaven.
