Truth overview: Baptists do not stem from the Catholic Church or from the Protestant Reformation. Baptists have always been separate and have dating back to the time of Christ and John the Baptist. However, such rich history is being undermined today by lukewarmness, legalism, compromise, conventions, and many false teachers and preachers crept in unawares.
Jude 1:4 "For there are certain men crept in unawares, who were before of old ordained to this condemnation, ungodly men, turning the grace of our God into lasciviousness, and denying the only Lord God, and our Lord Jesus Christ."
2 Timothy 2:15 "Study to shew thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth."
