“church history”

Taken from an advertisement from a certain church in the local newspaper: “This class will outline the history of Protestants from the first-followers of Jesus, through the Reformation and Baptists in the — area.” I’m guessing they refer to the “first-followers” of Jesus referred to in John 6:66: “From that time many of his disciples went back, and walked no more with him.” … It is tempting to attend this course and it would be quite entertaining but a) it is on Sunday’s during the divine liturgy and 2) it costs $20 – that kind of entertainment isn’t worth $20.

  1. I took a Baptist history class in college (it was required). And yes, there is a group of Baptists who believe that there has always been a Baptist-like group of Christians from the beginning.

    Most educated Baptists either tend to ignore early Church history or claim that everyone erred in certain points of theology.

    At any rate, I hardly consider it entertaining. I usually get very angry.
