Thank you, Acts 29

Acts 29 has posted a statement mostly dealing with the baseless accusations made by the Missouri Baptist Convention “Theological Sub-committee.” Thank goodness for this article. It uses biblical exegesis and careful scholarship to debunk the MBC’s statement and makes it (the MBC’s statement) look laughable in comparison. It’s almost like comparing a first year theology student’s work against the professor’s. Too bad the MBC couldn’t put forward a document as well thought out, biblically based, and intellectually cogent as this one. Oh, wait, I guess they were presented that and chose to look the other way.

At any rate, you can read the article from Acts 29 here.

Micah is a husband to Tracy & a daddy to Grace, Kessed & Haddon. He’s Senior Pastor at Brainerd Baptist Church in Chattanooga, TN. Most of all, he’s a debtor to grace.

  1. I would offer one clarification. I would not call it yet an “MBC statement” because that implies sanction or approval by the MBC. Right now it is a “preliminary” statement of a MBC committee and I hope it is much revised before it reaches finality and some sort of MBC sanction.

  2. Is it true that the NAMB.NET DVD titled IN THE NAME OF JEHOVAH features a closet homosexual as one of the Southern Baptist Church’s main witnesses against the teachings of the Watchtower?

  3. Maria-

    To be honest, I don’t have any idea. I would imagine, however, that if someone was a “closet” homosexual, we wouldn’t be aware of their orientation.

    If the person, however, was open about their sexual orientation I would be very surprised if they were used as an integral part of an SBC production.
