    B is for Baptist Distinctives

    Welcome to B is for Baptist Distinctives, a Distinctively Baptist Episode! This week Sam and David discuss the irony of the IFB movement being so dogmatic on denominational titles, yet very few would be able to give any insight on their own Baptist history, core beliefs, and identity.

Baby names!!!

You guys are AMAZING and I have listened to EVERY episode!!! Y’all are much younger than I, but as a former fundy myself and an almost “crowny” (thank goodness God protected me from that) but I ended up at TTU with JC lol so not much better LOL, I LOVE y’all and I’m so thankful for your podcast!

I too think Sam has the BEST laugh ever!

My husband and I were never able to have children so I would be glad to offer our baby names for y’all to use should you want!

For boys we were going to use:
Atticus Gerret
Oden Oliver

For girls we were going to use:
Sidalee Jo
Saphira Ann

I am so excited that y’all are having a baby and that it will get the opportunity to grow up in the freedom of Christ instead of the chains of fundamentalism and legalism! Praise the Lord for that freedom!!!

God bless and keep up the good work!

Favorite podcast!

Awesome podcast! I would definitely recommend it. I love the history behind each subject you talk about. Please please keep it up.

So relatable

Sam and I would definitely be friends if we lived closer!

Edit to add: David, I was raised ifb therefore don’t have any friends of the opposite gender. Maybe you could be friends with my husband.
Just kidding, you both are great and I’m sure I would be friends with you both! 😂😂
