The shame on Southern Baptists

I have repeatedly held that Moslems have a burden to more vocally oppose the actions of extremists like Bin Laden and the other terrorists. Those terrorists use the name of Islam to do their evil, therefore Moslems bear the weight of distancing themselves from those actions and ideas.

I can do no less for Southern Baptists, which I am one. The murderous Judge George Greer claims to be a Southern Baptist, and until his church quietly requested he remove himself from membership. The MSM repeats that he is supposedly a Southern Baptist. While the Florida Baptist Witness has been one of the leaders in renouncing the evil done by this horrible man, there is an appalling lack of condemnation from other Southern Baptist entities.

Of course I must note that Dr. Richard Land, president of The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, the Southern Baptist Convention's official entity assigned to address social, moral, and ethical concerns is speaking clearly against Terri's murder.

But what is painful to note is that here in Oklahoma our state Baptist paper, the Baptist Messenger, seems to have no idea that anything is going on in Florida. At my own church few people are even aware what is going on past the lies being told by the MSM. It's a non-issue to most.

Our inaction condemns us. That a judge, claiming to be a Southern Baptist does such a purely evil thing as George Greer is doing, demands we speak. Yet we are for all intents and purposes, silent. We are the scribe that passes on the other side of the road, to busy to help the injured man -- that the Samaritan eventually aids.

Unfortunately, Judge Greer has brought a stain against all Christians, a hideous stain on the Church, the body and bride of Christ.

As Christians, we must all thoroughly reject the actions of Judge Greer. By his actions he has declared himself apostate. He has utterly rejected Christ. He must be considered excommunicated by all Christians, not just Southern Baptists.

Look at I Corinthians 5:1-8. Here's a member of that congregation carrying on a public affair with his step-mom. Paul orders them to excommunicate the dude at once!

What's worse - sleeping with step-mom, or deliberately ordering an innocent human being's execution? The answer should be obvious.

So excommunicating Greer is the right thing to do.
