Crack Research Journalist Can’t Read The Original Source Material, To Wit: The Bible

KCMO 6.10.14 Ben Folds mjog

Dear WBC, 

I’m looking for a document that summarizes the beliefs and theology of the WBC. Like “This is what we believe and why.” I appreciate your direction/references to Biblical scholars, but do not have time to do original source reading myself. Is there something besides TULIP that explains what the WBC believes and how  those beliefs are then translated into action? 

Perhaps also how, specifically, how the WBC differs in their beliefs from other Primitive Baptist, Baptist and other Protestant denominations? Like a comparison and contrast listing?

No rush, this is a long-term project.  

Thank you.

Dear CRJ

I canvassed some of our people about your question. Several suggested that you read the Bible from cover to cover for your answers. Several said is a goldmine. If only you would peruse it a little bit.

For example:

Regarding “what we believe and why,” I think our very first FAQ fits the bill: Who are you, what do you do, and why do you do it?

In regards to how WBC differs from other churches — may I suggest THE CHILDREN OF LIGHT VS. THE CHILDREN OF DISOBEDIENCE It is a letter to the Christian Post after they wrote an article entitledStone Throwers vs. the Caring Spirit.” WBC being the “stone throwers,” of course, while “the caring spirit” is every other church.

Also, this Open Letter to All Primitive Baptists From Westboro Baptist Church looks like it’s the ticket!

Another suggested that there are three confessions of faith (London, Savoy and Philadelphia) on the web site You can also Google these to get the full texts. Most mainline religions have in the formative state believed most of the these things in these confessions of faith. They’ve apostasized from the truth; we haven’t.

1 Corinthians Chapter 13 does a good job of describing what we do and why and how it is translated into action. 2 Timothy 2:10: “Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.”

There is a great deal encompassed in your questions and it requires study. There are no glib responses. If you wanted it in a summary fashion it could be taken from the wisest man that every lived, Solomon, to wit: Ecclesiastes 12:13: “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.” The entire chapter is instructive, too.

Lastly, there are several documents found at the download center at that are useful:

Thanks for writing.
