SBC Gives DC Baptist Convention 90 Days to Sever Ties With Church Led by Lesbian Pastors

The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) Executive Committee (EC) has given the District of Columbia Baptist Convention (DCBC) 90 days to “secure” the “the removal of any churches from its fellowship that have demonstrated a faith or practice affirming, approving or endorsing homosexual behavior,” according to a recommendation adopted by the EC Feb. 20.

If such churches remain in friendly cooperation with the DCBC after that period, the DCBC will lose its authorization “to receive and disburse Cooperative Program and other SBC contributions,” the EC stated during its Feb. 19-20 meetings in Nashville. ...

Steve Doring, there must be dozens of Bible verses prohibiting 9:30 Sunday school classes and 11 o'clock worship services. Would you mind sharing five or six of them with us?

Yes, DC is definitely full of liberals, even in the churches.
And good to see SA get back to the main theme of news items--sodomites.
But I thought Baptist churches were only 'loosely affiliated' and their annual convention never comes up with a New Policy To Be Obeyed (or else!). I could understand it if they wanted all services in all their churches to start at 11:00am Sundays, with Sunday School starting at 9:30am so they have time to finish and go to the service. I don't know if they want to go as far as adding a New Policy on Sunday night services.

Hi CV and thanks for your response. It's taken me a very long time to come to that position, and I am still working on it, trying to put aside the traditions of men (which are not all wrong, of course) and follow the pattern laid down in scripture under the inspiration of the Holy Ghost.

John UK,
You mean proof texts? For independency and autonomy?

I arrived at that position by reading the New Testament over and over. That's the best way to get new covenant doctrine.

If you check out church history also, you'll find power struggles within all the major denominations and other so-called Christian churches. But there will always be a biblical remnant who abide by God's word, formulating their church structures from it, rather than traditions of men.

If you take, for example, the Anglican church, and see if you can find any biblical warrant for all the church "offices", such as Reverend, Right Reverend, Dean, Archbishop, Bishop, rector, vicar, reader, and so on, they just aren't there.

I greatly believe in the regulative principle and the principle of Sola Scriptura.

I hope that answers.

Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

Hard to do but it makes a clear line--

"11 For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost."
Mtt 18
They need to know their status to respond to the
In Christ.
Acts 8"35 Then Philip opened his mouth, and began at the same scripture, and preached unto him Jesus.
36 And as they went on their way, they came unto a certain water: and the eunuch said, See, here is water; what doth hinder me to be baptized?
37 And Philip said, If thou believest with all thine heart, thou mayest. And he answered and said, I believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God.
38 And he commanded the chariot to stand still: and they went down both into the water, both Philip and the eunuch; and he baptized him."

A true Baptist stance-

DC is one of the most progressive cities in America. It would seem a tall order for the DCBC to cut ties with those churches.

Good to see the SBC establishing and maintaining a standard. Indeed, come out from amongst them.
