The Southern Baptists will be destroyed soon. It’s not if; it’s how.
Will it be because they stand firm or because they don’t?
They’re the Pin in the Homo Grenade
To me, the Southern Baptists are clearly the ultimate pin in the homo grenade.
Note: The homo grenade is not for the homos. It’s for good and only the good churches and will be launched at them by the homos through the criminal and civil courts.
Of course the Episcopalians, Roman Catholics, United Methodists, and United Presbyterians will be celebrating homo marriages soon. They’ve been celebrating being a homo for decades under one guise or another so something like “marriage” isn’t a big deal to them. (It shouldn’t be a big deal to us either. As my brilliant friend Will Duffy points out so wisely, the issue is not a church’s adoption of gay marriage – it’s the church’s adoption of gay existence.)
Back to the Baptists
The Southern Baptists (I’m not one by the way) is the largest “traditional” and “fundamental” denomination in America. They will either be brought down by:
- Refusing to let homos marry in their churches, or
- Allowing it
Note: The Presbyterian Church in America (PCA) will surely refuse homo marriages. Nevertheless, they are in such small numbers as to not be considered a player in this. The sheer numbers of Southern Baptists is what makes them the key.
How I Pray the Southern Baptists are Destroyed
I pray the Southern Baptist denomination stands firm, refuses the homo litmus tests that are coming its way quickly and in huge numbers, and will be brought down by their refusal. Because as they refuse, the government and lawsuits will destroy them.
I pray they are not brought down by accepting the existence of homosexuals inside their church buildings for anything, including marriage ceremonies.
I pray that the Southern Baptists will not make sinful statements such as, “We acknowledge all are children of God” or “we love the sinner but hate their sin,” or “We don’t agree with their lifestyle but do agree with their right to have it” as they are destroyed in the coming weeks, months, and years.
