[quote=Malachi4U]I was reading that most Southern Baptist preachers now teach subordinationism. Catholics teach the Trinity.
This is from the SBC website. It sounds like the trinty to me, what’s your source?
There is one and only one living and true God. He is an intelligent, spiritual, and personal Being, the Creator, Redeemer, Preserver, and Ruler of the universe. God is infinite in holiness and all other perfections. God is all powerful and all knowing; and His perfect knowledge extends to all things, past, present, and future, including the future decisions of His free creatures. To Him we owe the highest love, reverence, and obedience. The eternal triune God reveals Himself to us as Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, with distinct personal attributes, but without division of nature, essence, or being.
Here’s a link. I believe that it means that either the Son or the HS are subordinate to God the Father
According to the CCC, anyone can baptize if they use the trinitarian formula, so I would say that Baptist baptisms are valid.
says it has always been around, and that it was suggested in the writings of Justin Martyr and Tertullian.
I trust that your intentions are good in bringing this up, but just as Protestants should not assume that all Catholics are sedevacanists just because a few are, one should not assume that an entire denomination believes a heresy like this.
If you are looking for information on what Roman Catholics believe, you go to the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Likewise, it would be appropriate, when wanting to understand what Southern Baptists believe, to go to an official church teaching or website.
The CCC suggests that we should look for common ground with our Protestant brothers and sisters, and treat them with respect.
I have never met a Southern Baptist who believes this heresy, and the ones I have met have been good, honest people trying to serve the Lord.
