The Narrow Parameters?

In this article from Christian entitled Baptist Pastor Questions ‘Narrow Parameters’ of Fellow Baptists, we see yet again, another example of the contemporary downgrade of the evangelical church. In this story, yet again, it is within the Southern Baptist Convention.

Referring to Missouri Baptist layman Roger Moran, Wade Burleson, pastor of Emmanuel Baptist Church in Enid, Okla. said, “I find it reprehensible and unconscionable that someone would call a Southern Baptist Church in Missouri, one that is reaching people for Christ and now running over 1,200 in worship, ‘deceptive’ and ‘dangerous…..I can’t figure out why some wish to continue to narrow the parameters of cooperation and exclude fellow, Bible believing Southern Baptists from missions participation and convention leadership.”

I am sure Roger Moran expected all of the fall out from his comments regarding the dangers of the emergent church. But when are some going to wake up and see the Truth.

Nothing, NOTHING, is worth sacrificing the Truth of Scritpure. When you are willing to sacrifice the Truth of Scripture in exchange for “fellowship”, even if it comes under the heading of Southern Baptist, then you are deceived.

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. ” Matthew 7:13,14

    Thank you for writing this post. It says much about your heart to put your life where your words are. I commend you my brother and I will happy to share a foxhole with you as this Truth War escalates…and it is going to…

    You asked: “But when are some going to wake up and see the Truth…” I’m afraid only the remnant willing to listen to the Great Shepherd in our generation will awaken from their slumber. But how humbled we are by 1 Corinthians 15:10 to see how it is that our ears hear.

    To the end; no matter what, in Christ…

    Please do better research so that you get the story right. Moran violated the truth by dealing with his concerns publically and never going to the pastor of the church in question. It is good to stand for truth, as long as we line up with the truth as we are trying to expose error
