More evidence of downgrade in moderate SBC life
As if we needed more evidence of downgrade in moderate SBC life, the Associated Baptist Press had an article yesterday on Royal Lane Baptist Church in Dallas, TX and its new website which announces, “Royal Lane Baptist Church is an inclusive, multi-generational congregation joined in Christian community. We are a vibrant mosaic of varied racial identities, ethnicities, sexual orientations and denominational backgrounds." The church is affiliated with the Baptist General Convention of Texas and the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.
I was reminded of a line from Psalm 12 which we read in worship last Lord's Day: "The wicked prowl on every side, when vileness is exalted among the sons of men."
