What is a Baptist?
« on: December 17, 2003, 08:51:37 PM »
Can someone give me a quick brief explanation?

Most hip-hop is now keyboard driven, because the majority of hip-hop workstations have loops and patches that enable somebody with marginal skills to put tracks together,...

Unfortunately, most hip-hop artists gravitated towards the path of least resistance by relying on these pre-set patches. As a result, electric guitar and real musicians became devalued, and a lot of hip-hop now sounds the same.

It's basically a christian who believes the tantamount or central concept of the christian religion is that by being baptised into Christ's church, you are forever saved and guaranteed a place in God's kingdom.  That's kind of the modern day explanation.  

Other denominations of Christians believe that while you have to be baptised, you also have to lead a good life, do certain rituals, etc.

A baptist, at heart, though believes that even if you are a pretty bad person, you'll be saved if you were baptised into christ's church, because through baptism (to them) you are forever forgiven of your sins.
