Why Jesus couldn’t be a Southern Baptist

I remember this same debate taking place at my church when I was only 18.

The ‘rules’ were that if you wanted to be a church member you weren’t allowed to drink alcohol or smoke tobacco. I didn’t do either of those things so I didn’t make any argument.

However a few of my older friends/mentors took it right up to the super-fundy powerbrokers and went head to head on the issue.

Eventually it was removed from the requirements of membership.

I was surprised at the vehemence with which my older friends went after this issue, but with the benefit of a few more years I am now able to see the significance of it.

We all have our denominational idiosyncrasies, but I just wonder what Jesus would say to the Southern Baptist about this decision…
