My 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith arrived today. I'm interested to see why we believe what we believe.
I like the 1689 :D
If I were to start all over again, I would join a congregation that holds to the 1689 as their confession.
Our church adopted an amended version of the 1689 confession several years ago.

(Former Southern Baptist here)

The thing is, when you're driving down the road and see a "baptist" church, there's a lot of ambiguity as to what exactly they believe. Pretty much the only guarantees are the core doctrines derived from the Apostles creed, credobaptism via immersion, and church autonomy. Beyond that, the doctrinal particulars are rather diverse - ecclesiastical autonomy run amok.

Then there's the category of secret baptists - those urban/suburban churches with abstract names to them that don't include "baptist" anywhere in their name or signage, but after getting involved you eventually find out that technically speaking they're affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention - I've been to a few of those in my days.
I tend to find the doctrinal books often more helpful in devotion than the devotional books.... I believe that many who find that "nothing happens" when they sit down, or kneel down, to a book of devotion, would find that the heart sings unbidden while they are working their way through a rough bit of theology with a pipe in their teeth and a pencil in their hand.

Regrettably, you'll find far more churches that ascribe to the Baptist Faith & Message (SBC) than those who ascribe to the 1689 LBCF. In all the SBC churches I've ever been a part of I never saw anyone really try to use the Baptist Faith & Message for any kind of instructional purposes. It was just a little gold colored pamphlet that would be sitting on a table somewhere with other materials, or in a hanging wall rack with other tracts and whatnot. No catechizing or anything. Besides - if a church is going to really teach doctrine as such, the 1689 LBCF is a far better document.

Good observation. I think the purpose of the BF&M is different from a document like the 1689 confession. The circumstances for the production of the LBCF were much different. During the reign of Charles I there was an attempt to revise the 39 Articles and unite the English and Scottish church and lots of drafts were made to establish a common confession. The Westminster Confession 'failed' in this regard but took off in Scotland. Presbyterians/Baptists/Congregationalists weren't looked too highly upon until after the Glorious Revolution. From that point on the Baptists (and others) were able to freely worship and the LCBF, written more or less at the same time as the WCF, was now published and served as a common confession for Particular Baptists. This outlined the vast similarities and important divergences between the Baptists and other non-conformers.

The BF&M, while it can certainly trace a type of lineage back to 1689, was more or less created, not necessarily to expound upon the similarities and differences of the faith they confess, but more to unite autonomous congregations for the Southern Baptists as sort of a baseline standard for inclusion. Since that is the purpose, it stands to reason that it would be a much smaller document and rather open ended or silent on various theological points (such as calvinism or arminianism).

In Southern Baptist news: LifeWay to Close All 170 Christian Stores

I've visited LifeWay stores before. It was like 10% good to decent stuff, 40% heretical and/or worthless stuff, and 50% Christianized kitschy crap. Gee, I wonder why they're closing? The only problem is that now people are going to have a hard time finding Testa-mints.
