I caught this collection of quotes coming across my Google Reader. While I suspect these comments come from a critical spirit, there is something we can learn about being Baptist.
“Having attended several denominations, and read/heard about many others (mostly Protestant), I’ve concluded one thing they all have in common is they are all wrong — doctrinally — about something. One of my biggest frustrations is that so many denominations serve their denomination as much as their God. I don’t think church growth should be a goal. I don’t think denomination status, tithes, attendance, etc., should be priorities.”
“The world in need needs a sign that people of Christian faith care for more than themselves and their need to be right.”
What do you think? Are denominations stumbling blocks when we share Jesus? Are we, as SBCers as bad as these people seem to think?
