What are we becoming? The Southern Baptist Convention has been blessed by God down through the years. … One of the reasons is because we have been people of the Book (the Bible).
We need to take heed to what Paul wrote to Timothy in 1 Timothy 1:3-7 (KJV), “As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightiest charge some that they teach no other doctrine, neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do. Now the end of the commandment is charity out of a pure heart, and of a good conscience, and of faith unfeigned: from which some having swerved have turned aside unto vain jangling; desiring to be teachers of the law; understanding neither what they say, nor whereof they affirm.”
Does being a Baptist mean anything anymore? Are we heading down the ecumenical highway? What are we going to become? If we start forgiving the devil, then we are certainly in for ruin. I think it is time to start preaching what the Bible says and certainly following the Great Commission; just because you change your name does not mean you are going to be faithful.
