Well, John the Baptist lived in the first century and the first Baptist church was founded in the 1600's. You do the math, but he was "the Baptist" because he was baptizing people, not because somehow he was part of an organization that wasn't founded for one millennium and a half after he died.

The traditional churches (Orthodoxy and Catholicism) practice a baptism in the name of the holy trinity. Modern baptist churches commemorate a baptism of forgiveness , the type that John the Baptist used to practice. That is the reason why Orthodox priests officiate "the real thing" when a Baptist wishes to join Orthodoxy. It's simply not the same kind of baptism.

For all I knew JTB was the reason for the fouding of the Baptist Church and then they started performing Baptisms. I don't exactly research individual sects of Christianity. It'd take me forever and I'd get em all mixed up anyway.

The one with the beard is the Orthodox Patriarch Teoctist. The other one is Pope John Paul II in a friendly visit. They celebrated mass together.

My speculations on Anglicanism are as good as yours.

Greetings, sister. May the forces of evil become confused on their way to your house... or something.

Oh, no Hallucinations 4:11 says the 'gilded sheep should be stewed in rat blood' but Morons 5:16 contradicts it. (Chas)
