Just so I understand. Are you saying being part of a denomination like Baptist,(by the way isn't "non-denominational" a "denomination" being as it is not one of the other groups) humanistic and/or pagan? Is that what you are saying. I ask that because I always thought I knew what both a pagan and a humanist was and the tenets of both of those entities do not match at all what I believe as a Christian who goes to a church with Baptist on the sign to be. But, I do think we are making some progress here and I appreciate your time.

I really do not understand what you are saying here. My point is that pagan idolitry and humanism have not place in the church.
