WASHINGTON (RNS) “Jesus is convictional,” Russell Moore said in an interview as he began to adjust to his Washington office just off Capitol Hill. “He speaks clearly about sin, righteousness and judgment but Jesus is not panicked or outraged.”

    The SBC and Muslim extremist are opposite sides of the same coin. Both have this puerile view of inerrant books. Not only should the SBC not be able to have lobbyists, they should be put on the terrorist watch list.

    The members of SBC are the cause for misogyny, homophobia, and xenophobia in America. This is a dangerous organization.

  • Was encouraged to hear Moore may not be as judgmental as Land, who, I thought humble men, do not worry about a “legacy.” Also, am disappointed in Luter for letting the smear campaign go on from behind Southern Baptist pulpits against the President of the United States. In the future, when this President is out of Office, and it will be shown none of the things Christians have accused him of being…tsk tsk. High level SB were silent, just like in Germany when 70% of Christians were silent as they dragged away their Jewish neighbors. The reason SB membership is down, is because you ran off all the Democrats. If my memory serves me, the Biblical Prophesy states the Church is Apostate in the end of days. You have your work cut out.The reason I am so hurt is that I was Baptist born and bred, father Deacon, parents SS teachers, Wed. pm prayer meetings, choir on Thursdays, Training Union on Sunday night, ten (10) years SB church secretary, worked for six (6) pastors (none not up to the post)…and straight A’s at the Liberty U. Home Bible Institute Program. I do, indeed know what Jesus said. SB have fallen way short. It’s a shame.
