I understand that the Southern Baptist Convention is meeting in Nashville, TN, this week and is expected to be a knock down drag out. The last time I heard of this was in the 70s. The conservatives won that battle, but I'm not certain what will happen now. I told my mother that I thought the SBC should split, let the liberals go their own way. The thing is churches in the SBC are not governed by the convention, which is a loose confederation, that is supposed to be banded together mostly for the purpose of the furtherance of the Gospel-- missionary work. If there is a huge difference in doctrine in the churches, they should separate. I would be fine with this solution, although I'm sure there would be a titanic struggle over the money, possessions, and publishing company. Lifeway has not been much punkin in years though, and they closed all of the physical stores.
