The New Founders

In case this flew right under your radar:

Clinton and Carter seeking "New" Baptist voice.

Carter said there was a need for a new voice for "progressive"(read, "we don't like the Bible telling us how to live") Baptists after the terrible schism that occurred during the 1980s.

Well, if we remember our SBC history, that schism was centered around the infallibility, inerrancy, and authority of God's Word, and as I recall, the trouble makers, like Carter and Clinton, didn't like the infallibility, inerrancy, and authority of God's Word because it conflicted with their apostate, liberal beliefs like abortion and women preachers. Ten plus years later the Bible conflicts with even newer apostasy like the embracing of homosexuality as normal, postmodern relativism, and religious pluralism.

Carter also noted that he has felt isolated over the years from the SBC. I can sympathize. I have felt isolated over the years from the SBC, but for entirely opposite reasons. Whereas Carter and Clinton believe the SBC takes the Bible too seriously so that it causes division, I believe they don't take it seriously enough.

I guess we'll see what happens.

A denomination for Israel hating womanizers. Should be interesting.

Isn't that the American Episcopalian Church?

Why they want to pick on the Baptists is beyond me. Couldn't they be New Something Else? Of course this is old something else.
Itching ears etc.
