Spent some time with baptists and evangelicals. Most of the time online. After a while I sensed that the main issue, as always, is the question who is saved or not? That is where they end up. Most of them in the debate.
Some people get fruit in their lives and at the same time someone point out that they are saved another person point with another finger and says that is not being saved it is trying to be righteous through work effort. But wait wait, that is a blessing?? Do you not see it. No no, that is of the "world", store your wealth in heaven instead. But do not cut anyone some slack, you repent and make something out of the life you got as a gift from God who was not obligated to give you anything! Be rich but not happy in this life, but do not forget to be grateful! Grateful in the right sense, you know, grateful that you store things in heaven for eternity, do not live of this world, but wait!!!... On and on..
What is the problem in this ever-changing milieu? Well, I sense that it is that no one can prove that one is saved or not.
So after spent months with the baptist online community I came to conclusion that Jesus done it all and there is no use being part of a community that "works" most of the time to prove something that can not be proved in the eyes of any human. If we go to scripture alone it means that no amount of time should be spent on anything because God and his son is doing everything and already did it on calvary. Baptists are stuck in the 1950s. They got idols in the attributes and hymns?
My conclusion is. Jesus did it all. Do not spend your time to prove it in the community. He just did it on Calvary. Believe him and be saved. Do not say that you are saved because it is not possible to prove.
People taking part in the community participate in emotional abuse.
