Maybe the SBC Isn’t for You?

362 comments

I’ve been a regular attender of an SBC church since 9 months before I was born. It’s all I’ve known.

You are in a desert wasteland. You haven’t eaten food in days. The last time  you had a drink of water was two days ago. You are parched and your stomach is screaming at you. You don’t know when your next meal or drink will be coming. In the distance you see Monty Hall and boy does […]
