Question
I just don't get it. Was the earth really made is six days? This is crazy talk.

Looking forward to your answer.

Answer
Yes, the Baptists take the words of God literally and reject the spiritual meaning.  There is scripture talking about trees clapping their hands. Do trees have hands? Are Baptists plucking their eyes out and cutting off their hands??  

Crazy Talk. Apostasy has overtaken the Baptist faith. The Baptists teach us that the KJV is to be interpreted literally but I never had a Baptist share the good news about the Messiah.  "Simon Peter answered, "You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God!"-Matthew 16:16 GWT

How do Baptist get that Jesus is part of a triune God from this verse??  CRAZY TALK! Didn't God send his only begotten son??  How can this not be LITERAL?

I can answer questions about the Bible of all translations and the various theologies of it's passages. Experience in how the Baptist Religion was founded in it's infancy and how it has splintered into many sects of different theology. If you enjoy the deeper things of God. I would love the opportunity to share the meanings of the true scripture as the meanings are hidden from many. Teaching an eternal burning hell is to reject "that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures"-1 Cor 15:3. The Bible Literally teaches us that "death and hell delivered up the dead which were in them"-Revelation 20:13. This is truly a marvel and the gospel of Jesus Christ that hell gives up the dead to be Judged. Please note the last half of the scripture "they were judged every man according to their works." We would be in error to say works don't matter, if we are literally judged by them.

Experience

Intensive study of Biblical Christianity and where it got it's start. I've learned that being a KJV only can lead a person to being narrow minded and somewhat short sided to Christ's full message of Salvation. Sometimes comparing Bible translations actually leads to a far deeper understanding of God's Word. Punishment in hell after death is double jeopardy and unjust.

Organizations
Once Saved Always Saved is not a Biblical doctrine. Paul told Christians who had already accepted Christ to: “Keep working out your own salvation with fear and trembling.”— Philippians 2:12.

Education/Credentials
Baptist Sunday School and intense study of different translations. Studying several different translations gave me more understanding than reading KJV Only. Without grace who of us could get saved and stand before the throne of God? I believe that the antichrist has entered the church and leading many astray by the works of the flesh and an apostasy is now occurring among believers who through bad works are sinning their grace away. "Can it be that I have become your enemy for telling you the truth?"- Galatians 4:16
