I am not being argumenitive, just making sure that we are all clear. From the above site........... "Within the U.K. most Brethren churches are 'Open Brethren'. There is, however, another, separate group, known as the 'Exclusive Brethren'. As with most Christian denominations there are always those who do go away from the tenants of the faith and do goofy things. In Tenn. and Ga. there are "Baptists" who handle rattle snakes and temp God by doing so. They are Baptists in name only not in actions.
