Hi, my name is Wes, and I just signed up here as Winman. Some of you may know me from Baptist Board where I am temporarily banned for making "inflammatory posts" (translation- I refuted Calvinism with scripture). It is only temporary and I will be allowed to post there again soon.
I was saved in a Baptist church 50 years ago when I was a ten year old boy in Panama City, Florida. It may have been Hugh Pyle that preached the fire and brimstone sermon that convinced me I needed Jesus Christ to save me from my sins, but I am not absolutely sure. I do know I asked Jesus to come into my heart and save me from my sins that day and I have not been the same since.
I have always belonged to IFB churches and am pretty orthodox except in one area, I do not believe men are born guilty of Adam's sin (original sin). I do believe all men are born "flesh" with a propensity to sin, but I do not believe God judges men as "sinners" until they are old enough to know between good and evil (Ecc 7:29, Deu 1:39, Isa 7:16, Jon 4:11, Mat 18:3, 10, Luke chapter 15, Rom 7:9-11, 1 Pet 2:25 among others). This view of mine does not sit well with many Baptists, but I believe I can support it from MUCH scripture.
Other than that, I am very conservative and King James only which is considered heretical at BB. That's OK, I believe the Word of God.
I look forward to posting here, I especially enjoy debating Calvinism which I firmly believe is false doctrine. I have read some posts here and see I am not alone in this view. I do believe it is important to confront this doctrine, we are commanded to contend for the faith.
