Baptist Distinctives: Lesson 3 Links

1)  We talked about the pamphlet William Carey wrote called "An Enquiry into the Obligations of Christians to use means for the Conversion of the Heathen..." and you can read it here.  Even if you don't intend to read it all, just browse through to see what his main points were and think of how they relate to what we talked about on Sunday. 2)  A website where you can learn a bit more about Anne Steele and look through some of her hymns. 3)  A short article about the role of confessions in the church.  The first line is: "I recently received an email from an individual complaining about churches that require their members to “subscribe to a man-made fallible doctrine-of-man human tradition creed.”'

Baptist Distinctives: Lesson 2 Links

My apologies for not getting these up sooner.  I'll be posting the reccommended links from each lesson up here each week but I'll also let you know on FB when I do.   CHRIST AS LORD AND HEAD 1.  Audio from a biography message that John Piper did on John Bunyan.  This will help give you a better picture of being a Baptist in the 1600's in Britain and also a greater appreciation for Bunyan. 2.  A sermon you can read from Charles Spurgeon, another Baptist that we'll look at later on.  The sermon is on Colossians 1:18 and explores what it means that Christ is the head of the Church. Enjoy!
