(AlbertMohler.com) Southern Baptists will soon be gathering in Nashville, and the one big question looming over the Convention will be this — how do we move forward?
This meeting comes as several issues have been building in intensity for years, while others have erupted more recently. Some of the intensity is because the issues are genuinely important. But the fact is that many Southern Baptists left the Convention meeting in Birmingham in 2019 with real concerns about the future. It did not help the SBC that there could be no annual meeting in 2020. We must pray for Southern Baptists to show up in Nashville and deal with difficult issues and emerge stronger, and we must do so in a way that honors the Lord.
