Southern Baptists list
Men disguised in ornate robes
Cower behind God
“Protestants can be very arrogant when pointing to Catholics… I think we are worse.“Boz Tchividjian, a Liberty University law professor and grandson to Billy Graham
The Southern Baptist Convention hid a list of pastors who were credibly accused of sexual abuse for 15 years or more. The Executive Committee finally released a list recently which caused an uproar. How are we to measure the standard for morality when our church leaders are sexually abusing the audience who idolize them? How long will our churches keep hiding the abusers? How many other Christian organizations are cowering behind God?
Don’t baptize babies
Only adults say Baptists!
Not programmed enough
“To deny in a child after baptism sin remains is to treat with contempt Paul and Christ.”Pope Leo X
Baptism is either one of two of the sacraments or one of seven of the sacraments depending on what Christian denomination you subscribe to. Were you baptized as a baby or a young child or an adult? How and when you’re baptized depends again on what Chrisitan denomination you subscribe to. I can’t tell you which way is correct because the Bible covers it all. There’s a lot of debate on how you’re baptized: sprinkling, immersion, or pouring. Paul even re-baptized (Acts 19:1-6) others when he discovered that they weren’t baptized according to his methods. Should we baptize babies? There were entire households that were baptized and I would guess that there were probably babies and young children present.
