HISTORY of Christian Theology

Is a radical movement among a minority of Southern Baptists beginning in the 1850s that stressed its complete separation from all other Christian sects. They refused communion to other Christians including other Baptist who were not from their congregation and refused to recognize even baptism by immersion performed by other Protestant sects. They refused to participate in missionary societies with other Baptist and Protestant congregations and claimed direct authority from Christ through a questionable successionist history asserting it was handed down through the ages independent of the Roman Catholic Church.
