Will Southern Baptist pastors still preach using Scripture rather than telling stories like many do? God has promised to bless His Word so I beg, preach and use Scripture.
Many Southern Baptist preachers skip over the scriptures that address homosexuality, abortion, adultery, alcoholism, etc. In fact many Southern Baptist indulge in drinking and see no harm. Of course the Bible speaks of the last days and many will fall away.
The scripture warns of not being a drunk. It does not say do not drink any alcohol. In fact Paul tells Timothy to take some wine for his stomach. And yes it was alcohol. Abortion is not directly mentioned in scripture except that it’s murder. The best way to address the LGBTQ issues is one Marriage is between a man and Woman period! Sex outside Marriage is a sin! Answers the homosexuality question and Jesus also states the marriage issue in the Gospel. However we also need to make that same point for heterosexual’s too!
“Woe unto him that giveth his neighbour drink, that puttest thy bottle to him, and makest him drunken also, that thou mayest look on their nakedness!”
Habakkuk 2:15 KJV
Woe is an abomination.
Since giving wine to someone is an abomination, Then the Oinos that Jesus gave at fhe marriage was grape juice. If it were alcoholic, fhen Jesus would have disqualified himself as the perfect sacrifice for our sin.
He’s either your Lord or bootlegger but not both.
Why do people drink?? Many drink to relax or relieve stress. Isn’t that what God is for? Do people use alcohol in place of a relationship with God?
An alcoholic cannot become addicted if they never try alcohol.
Do the SBC believe in the rapture? and if so, what scriptures do they use to show it is biblical?
Yes they do. However there is no specific point in Revelation that everyone agrees on when it takes place. I’m sure that there are some who don’t believe in the rapture. As it is not specifically addressed in scripture it’s really not a hill to die on.
