    According to the article in the Associated Baptist Press, the BWA is alive and well - took in more in contributions in 2004 - even after the loss of SBC funding, than they took in in 2003. The BGCT and BGAV have now decided to join as well. The SBC may be able to manipulate the vote as the executive committee wants them to, but evidently the people of the SBC are voting with thier pocketbooks! Paige wont be happy.

    I know of several SBC churches that are sending specific funding to the BWA and cutting it out of their Cooperative Program funding.

    Anyhoo...does anyone know if P-Diddy (Patterson) recanted on his false testimony about the BWA at the SBC annual meeting? that whole homosexual thing?

    It doesn't matter to me if the BWA is alive and well or who joins it! I stand completely behind the SBC withdrawing from it and feel it should have happened years ago!

    And that is totally fair enough, no one in any SBC church should have to have monies given on their behalf to any mission or Bible college / schooling group without their permission first being sought, hence the church specific programme where as we see more funds are comming in from. When people are given choices they will vote with their own cheque books to what they think is appropriate.

    God is doing some powerfull miracles within the BWA in respect to missions, lets pray that the growth continues and many many more come to the Lord.

    Refresher for some of us non-SBC types. BWA is the liberal (er, moderate) bunch and the SBC Cooperative Program is the conservative, right?

    The Seventh Day Baptists are anything but Liberal, either are any of the other Baptist denominations to my knowlege, in fact compared to some SBC congregations, the SDB make them look liberal - being that they are into headcovering and stuff like that!

    I agree. The BWA is a worthless, liberal, anti-American, pro-UN organization. I am glad the SBC has nothing to do with them anymore. May it continue to be so.

    Well, It cost God the life of His Son Jesus? </font>[/QUOTE]I am not referring to that cost. I am talking about your statement in a pervious post that the BWA was growing, etc. And my point is growing at what cost? They support liberal theology, etc. Is the growth worth the cost of throwing away sound doctrine?

    I'm glad the SBC left the BWA too. Now I can much more comfortably support the BWA. The SBC is increasingly separating itself from every group of Christians in the world who are not afraid to use their brains.

    They are liberal. They are worthless. They have the spirit of Anti-Christ. They are anti-American. Good Riddance. If you want to know more about why I think this way, check the archives back when this topic first came up over a year ago. Maybe compared to Michael Moore, they are conservative. But not in my mind.

    Would you say that Billy Graham, a strong BWA supporter, is worthless? Are the thousands he has led to Christ false converts? Worthless is strong word, and shouldn't be thrown around too loosely.

    I would say that Graham is misguided and wrong to support an evil organization.

    You are extremely careless with your words Mr. Botwinick. It is obvious that you are misguided, and if not, then you are evil, for calling that which is good evil, and that which is valuable to God worthless. I would not call you worthless, for no one is in God's eyes. But you verge on being a fool if you think men like Kim and Graham are misguided in their supportof the BWA.

    I think Jbot hit it pretty square. Not careless at all.

    Most of us deplore groups that are "soteriological" (that is, if folks get saved it must be all right) in motivation.

    Faithfulness is the only requirement God gives to His servants, and fidelity to the Word of God leads one to a "doxological" motivation. That is missing from the BWA.

    Graham is a key example of a misguided errant minister. His support for the BWA is typical.
