'Regenerate church membership' adopted by SBC messengers
INDIANAPOLIS (BP)--Biblical standards for church membership, accountability for living like disciples of Jesus and trying to restore members who have dropped out of church life were the focus of a resolution adopted June 11 by messengers to the Southern Baptist Convention annual meeting in the Indiana Convention Center.

As presented by the 10-member resolutions committee, "On Regenerate Church Membership and Church Member Restoration" urged Southern Baptist churches to "maintain a regenerate membership by acknowledging the necessity of spiritual regeneration and Christ's lordship for all members, ... maintain accurate membership rolls for the purpose of fostering ministry and accountability among all members of the congregation and ... implement a plan to minister to, counsel, and restore wayward church members based upon the commands and principles given in Scripture." ...

This falls again under the "Hmmm" category.

Church Discipline, In this Pastor Rugh pointed out,"....The congregation should be in prayer about this matter and for the individual for a specified period of time, perhaps two or three weeks. If the Lord burdens a particular member of the body to make personal contact with that person to encourage him to repent of his sin, by all means, he should do so. If during the specified time, the individual recognizes the gravity of the sin and turns from it, he is forgiven. The process is completed."

Repentance not regeneration as such is called for.
