Yes, and the Southern Baptists preach from the Bible and are not that kind of suicide cult and their not being a suicide cult doesn't make everything OK with the Southern Baptists.

I can state the same kind of obviousness but it doesn't mean anything other than the implications that must be intended.

To me, the Local Church looks like the Southern Baptists in their use of the Bible.

But even Jim Jones used the Bible so the Southern Baptists don't have a "get out of jail free" card either on that account.

Unless you mean that the Southern Baptists are a cult!

Yeah, I guess Jim Jones did it too, but I'm not sure why that's relevant.
