You Might be a Baptist If ...

Another repost, but this time it's timely. David over at Jollyblogger has posted You Might be a Presbyterian If ... and has challenged the rest of the blogosphere (or at least our part of it) to follow suit. I like his take on Baptists in that post (he used to be onw, after all), but a while back I added these: * If you believe that Jesus fed 5,000 people with catfish and hushpuppies, you might be a Baptist.
* If you have never sung the third verse to any hymn in the hymnal, you might be a Baptist.
* If the first question you ask a pastoral candidate is, "Do you like chicken?" and question his salvation if he answers "No," you might be a Baptist.
* If you've ever collected an offering using Kentucky Fried Chicken buckets, you might be a Baptist.
* If you think that a Biblical benediction is seventeen verses of "Just As I Am," you might be a Baptist.
* If, when someone says "AMEN" during a sermon, you look around to see who the visitor is, you might be a Baptist.
* If your definition of "fellowship" involves fried chicken and sweet tea, you might be a Baptist.
* If you believe that the Marriage Supper of the Lamb will be potluck, and leave instructions in your will to be burried with a covered dish, you might be a Baptist.
* If you have a bumper sticker on your car that says, "In the event of Rapture, this car will be unmanned," you might be a Baptist.

Credit for some of these should probably go to Grif.net, though I'm really not sure which ones -- that's the one place I know I've seen a list like this before.

1 I grew up baptist, and you def. hit the nail on the head. The one about not singing the third verse is so true.

2 Yeah, what's up with that? Why not sing the third verse? I go to a Reformed Baptist congregation and we sing all the verses.

3 Odd thing is, the Southern Baptist church I go to now sings EVERY verse of EVERY song, no matter how long it is.
