Baptist churches do indeed enjoy a great degree of autonomy, at least in my neck of the woods. I don't see autonomy as a problem as long as there are guidelines in place to protect people, especially the vulnerable.
mountain, I agree with you. Autonomy is not the issue but rather putting the comfort (idolatry/worship) of autonomy before personal discomfort when personal discomfort means doing the right thing.
The more I think about the phrase, it really apples to all organizations where leadership (or any member) becomes lazy rather than adhering to the ethos of the company/team/club etc. Simply because it is easier to "look the other way" and let somethin slide than stand up and speak out or be willing to be the lone person that raises their hand to say "no".
Jesus set up a system whereby those who were in authorative positions over the flock were to be servants of all. He demonstrated this when he wiped the disciples' feet. Peter at first rejected this instruction, but when it was pointed out to him what it meant, he embraced the principle eagerly. Those that you speak of are clearly throwing away the towel rather than using it. They are not true servants.
Perhaps exploring “amaterialism”. Those things that are not of materialism ? a(not)-materialism Hmmm
The materialistic world has a finite existence ( from the time of the creation of the materialistic world!)
But a brief analysis of the amaterialistic world( before creation) leads to understanding that the amaterialistic world has Existed since enternity past ... shattering the time frame of these materialistic believers? ?

Get off of TMB: Some of you folks are closer the grave than you want to admit. Why waste time here on this anonymous board? Spend time with family. Take vacations. See a psychiatrist to control your TMB addiction. Leave TMB and be much happier.

wally: thats probably best if you can't navigate the forum, but you might want to get comfy cause conventions might not come around for awhile...

shushy: The magnetic coils will heal us bz our energy is compatible. I have heard 5 G irritates the brain but no idea how it spreads the virus bz I dont believe in covid it has been a smoke screen for other thungs.

shushy: 5G will kill us off.
Nov 5, 2020 16:20:07 GMT -5
rational: Does Tesla make magnetic coils? How do they function on cellphone networks? And how does 5G spread the virus?
