Sermon of the Week: J. B. Jeter on "The Obligations of Baptists to their Distinctive Principles"
Jeremiah Bell Jeter (1802-1880) was a Virginia Baptist pastor, theologian, editor, and denominational statesman. He was a "gentleman controversialist." His sermon "The Obligations of Baptist to their Distinctive Principles" was delivered at the 54th annual meeting of the Baptist General Association in 1877. At the twilight of his ministry career, Jeter exhorts his Baptist brethren to contend earnestly for the faith once delivered to the saints (Jude 1:3).
