Liberal Baptist denomination exposes its true agenda

From The Christian Post...

Just three months after the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship’s General Assembly decided to remove explicit references to “Jesus” from the its constitution, the group’s national leaders voted to add a preamble that mentions the text in hopes of quieting critics of the initial change.

At an Oct. 13-14 gathering in Atlanta, Ga., the 69-member Coordinating Council approved a preamble to the constitution that reads “We gladly declare our allegiance to Jesus Christ as Lord and to His gospel as we seek to be the continuing presence of Christ in the world.” 

The change came amid sharp criticism – from both within and outside of the Fellowship – regarding an initial decision to replace “gospel of Jesus Christ” with “glad obedience to the Great Commission” in the group’s constitution. 

During a national meeting in July, supporters of the decision said the replacement would better reflect the Fellowship’s new mission statement, which says the group’s purpose is to “to serve Christians and churches as they discover and fulfill their God-given mission.”

Back in the late 80's and early 90's these Liberals (who call themselves “moderates”) tried to hi-jack the Southern Baptist Convention. I was a the main SBC seminary at the time and their antics were childish, which is typical of Liberals. Eventually they snatched their marbles and stalked away, pouting, to start their own denomination, the CBF. It seems their ruse of pretending to be “moderate” is wearing thin.

I see no biblical example for any body claiming to be Christ's church having any 'constitution', except for the Word.

There's also no biblical example of Christians using the internet. So what are you doing you evil sinner!!!

(In other words...use a little common sense.)
