"A native Floridian, John was born in Tampa and raised in Sarasota. John‚Äôs mother is the original ‚ÄúGirl named John.‚ÄĚ Her mother was a special education teacher who died unexpectedly when John was 14 years old. John's maternal grandfather, Dr. William Fitts, promised his World War II buddy and fellow Army medic to name his second child in his memory. John's parents chose to continue this legacy and named their second child, also a girl, the same way. John is proud of her name as result of this tradition and she and her husband continue the legacy."
Looking for information on Early Rain Covenant Church I came across the following speaking of a dialogue between the imprisoned and the imprisoning from China Partnership: "The officer said: 'Security is more important than anything'. I responded, 'The value of a soul is greater.' After completing the record the officer asked, 'What doctrines do you all teach?' I sat up straight and recited, Q. What is your only comfort in life and in death? A. That I am not my own, but belong body and soul, in life and in death - to my faithful Savior Jesus Christ." 1Co 6:20 For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God's. 1Co 7:23 Ye are bought with a price; be not ye the servants of men. Rev 17:14 These shall make war with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them: for he is Lord of lords, and King of kings: and they that are with him are called, and chosen, and faithful.

The real church doesn't make such distinctions.It's almost as if it's a pride issue. How can one be proud over something for which they can take no "credit"?
it was the writer who called it an African-American church, maybe the complaint about that should go to the email provided.
One would also wonder if the choir pictured is the one that sings in the church that is mentioned.

I did not run into that issue when clicking on the link.
Bible Doctrine wrote: 4. ... but also the infants of one or both believing parents are to be baptized.b a. Mark 16:15-16; Acts 8:37-38. ‚ÄĘ b. Gen 17:7, 9 with Gal 3:9, 14 and Col 2:11-12 and Acts 2:38-39 and Rom 4:11-12; Mat 28:19; Mark 10:13-16; Luke 18:15; 1 Cor 7:14.
I read every Scripture proof you gave me very carefully and could not find infant baptism being taught in any of them.
The Biblical Method wrote: WCF 7/6. Under the gospel, when Christ the substancea was exhibited, the ordinances in which this covenant is dispensed are the preaching of the Word and the administration of the sacraments of Baptism and the Lord‚Äôs Supper;b which, though fewer in number, and administered with more simplicity and less outward glory, yet in them it is held forth in more fulness, evidence, and spiritual efficacy,c to all nations, both Jews and Gentiles;d and is called the New Testament.e There are not, therefore, two covenants of grace differing in substance, but one and the same under various dispensations.f a. Col 2:17. ‚ÄĘ b. Mat 28:19-20; 1 Cor 11:23-25. ‚ÄĘ c. Jer 31:33-34; Heb 12:22-28. ‚ÄĘ d. Mat 28:19; Eph 2:15-19. ‚ÄĘ e. Luke 22:20. ‚ÄĘ f.

I don't understand what you are trying to convey.
There is only one Covenant of Grace. As I said before it is the regenerating work of the Holy Spirit that brings us into the Covenant of Grace not infant baptism.
Reproving, rebuking and warning is also part of loving our neighbor.
"John, the apostle of love, began his third epistle with these words, "The elder unto the well-beloved Gaius, whom I love in the Truth." What a needed word is this for today, when so much that passes for love, even in avowedly Christian circles, is nothing but a sickly sentimentality at the expense of the Truth. One of the outstanding cries in the religious world, is to this effect‚ÄĒ "though we have differed in our beliefs and practices, let us now sink our differences and come together in love." A.W.

John UK "Oh, they're all on website forums or Facebook slamming her for being so wicked."
She is being wicked and she needs to be told to repent. She is a very bad influence on young people and others.
"Merck, the pharmaceutical giant, is facing a slew of controversies over its Measles-Mumps-Rubella (MMR) vaccine following numerous allegations of wrongdoing from different parties in the medical field, including two former Merck scientists-turned-whistleblowers.

The Council of Trent CANON IV. "If any one shall affirm, that man‚Äôs freewill, moved and excited by God, does not, by consenting, cooperate with God, the mover and exciter, so as to prepare and dispose itself for the attainment of justification; if moreover, anyone shall say, that the human will cannot refuse complying, if it pleases, but that it is inactive, and merely passive; let such an one be accursed"!
‚ÄúCanon IV: was declared to be offered upon the basis of human cooperation with divine grace as opposed to the Protestant doctrine of passive reception of grace.‚ÄĚ
‚ÄúDR. GRAHAM DECLARES HIS GOSPEL TO BE THAT OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH. Speaking at the Roman Catholic Belmont Abbey College..., Dr. Graham said: "The gospel that built this school and the gospel that brings me here tonight is still the way to salvation" ‚Ä¶vice-president of Belmont Abbey College, Rev.

Billy Graham is preaching a moral and evangelical theology most acceptable to Catholics." (Personal letter reproduced in Billy Graham and the Church of Rome, by I.R.K. Paisley‚Ä¶)‚ÄĚ
