I was raised on the old B-A-P-T-I-S-T below. These are the things that supposedly made us 'distinctive' in our faith. But as I'm reading and learning, I'm discovering that most -if not all- of these do not mean what they used to... what they're supposed to. This post will focus on the Priesthood of the Believer & Individual Soul Liberty.
It’s one we don’t think about. I imagine you haven’t heard a sermon on it in a long time, if ever. It first came up in Deuteronomy and was re-emphasized a few times in the New Testament. More importantly, it has incredible potential to keep you and me out of deep messes. We can hardly imagine why it is important at all, but it got enough mileage in Scripture to show us the Lord thought it a worthy concept.
