Not a New Direction
Here's a piece on the direction of the Southern Baptist Convention. First is the rejection by the new denomination's president not only of women's ordination but also including women as deacons.
That's an odd stance because women are certainly deacons and recognized as such by Paul in the last chapter of Romans. I'm not sure how one is able to relate the SBC's stance and Paul's assertion that our central identity is found in Christ, not on our gender.
The new president also argued that the denomination needs to set greater parameters in defining beliefs for its members, especially its leadership then what Baptist Faith and Message has. An example was speaking in tongues which he would forbid in the church.
And with this we can be sure that soul competency, congregationalism and non creedalism is dead in the Southern Baptist Convention. Rather a church which regulates individual conscience has been put in it's place. No one has to worry about moderation from this church.
