God cannot bless the Southern Baptist Convention until all this evil is dealt with as JESUS would have it!!!! IT CANNOT BE SWEPT UNDER THE RUG!!!!!!!!!!! SHAME!!!!!!!!!!!!!! CLEAN IT UP!!!!!!!!!!! The sexual abuse in the Southern Baptist Convention has caused much damage in many ways.
Flee from sexual immorality. Every other sin a person commits is outside the body, but the sexually immoral person sins against his own body. Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6: 18-20
Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God. 1 Corinthians 6: 9-11
From Jesse T. Jackson in CHURCHLEADERS:
In an ongoing effort to find out who is responsible for leaking a highly personal story detailing her abuse, Jennifer Buck reached out directly to Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) President Bart Barber requesting an in-person meeting to discuss events that happened earlier this spring.
Jennifer, who is the wife of outspoken SBC pastor Tom Buck (First Baptist Church in Lindale, TX), had detailed in writing her personal story about early, difficult years in her marriage. The writing also included information about sexual abuse she says she experienced during childhood. More Here
