If You’re a Southern Baptist and you Want to Change the Name of the SBC…

Posted on

It can only mean one thing: you’re ashamed of who you are and what you stand for.  You simply wish to be more ‘pleasing’ to society and people who live to please the world aren’t exactly the sort that should be elected representatives of the SBC.

The announcement from Southern Baptist Convention President Bryant Wright of a presidential task force to study the prospect of changing the convention’s name sparked a lively debate during the SBC Executive Committee meeting Sept. 19 in Nashville, Tenn.

If you don’t want to be known as a Southern Baptist, get out.  Become an Independent Baptist or Northern Baptist or American Baptist or Seventh Day Baptist or whatever.  Bryan should resign if he doesn’t feel honored to be called a Southern Baptist.

    I am sure it will be something inane and stupid.
