Southern Baptists Denounce Oil Spill, Pro-Gay Bills, Divorce in Churches
"God has designed us with a dependence on the natural resources around us and has assigned us a dominion of stewardship and protection of those resources for future generations," states the resolution addressing the BP oil spill, the worst in U.S. history.
"Our God-given dominion over the creation is not unlimited, as though we were gods and not creatures, so therefore, all persons and all industries are then accountable to higher standards than to profit alone."
As the article stated, 'Lamenting the pervasiveness of divorce in the church, Southern Baptists agreed they need to "address the spiritual wreckage left in our Southern Baptist churches by our own divorce rates and our silence about the same" and realize "how damaging Southern Baptist accommodation to the divorce culture is to our global witness for Christ."' Yes, it is a case of Divorce on Trial. It appears that being part of a denomination hasn't made many of the members of the SBC aggressive enough about Church Discipline. It really sounds like they have some other items higher on the agenda than oil spills. Evaluating the Church Today
