There are several people on this forum who are supporting/defending the recent actions of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. There are several points I would like to make to ALL of you. 1. Stop allowing your loyalty to an institution to cloud your spiritual discernment. Good schools make bad decisions, and good schools sometimes go bad. Just because this is "THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST SEMINARY" does not mean that everything they do is right, or defendable. 2. If another school did what Southern has done, Mohler would be on the air within the week condemning the school. Anyone like to challenge me on this? Go ahead. I know of things other "Christian" schools have done that have resulted in Mohler's public condemnation of them. Some deserved it, others did not. However either way it should be clear that Mohler would not tolerate another "Christian" school hiring a company that celebrates homosexual diversity!!! Period!! 3. The company Southern has hired (Sodexho) proudly brags about celebrating the HOMOSEXUAL lifestyle in their brochure on diversity (pg 7 at http://www.sodexhousa.com/2004_Annual_Div_Inc_Rpt.pdf ). The Bible (our FINAL authority on ALL matters) condemns homosexuality and those who celebrate it (1Cor 6:9-10 Rev 21:8 Rom 1:24-32). This is a company that celebrates what God condemns, NO CHRISTIAN organization should do any business with this company when there are other options open to them. Period. 4. The school is free to have whatever programs it desires, and to structure their school any way they like. However they are not free to avoid the results of their bad choices. Here Southern has made a bad choice, period. Let's stop trying to pretend they have not. ALL Bible believing Christians should, with a loud and united voice, call for a reversal of Southern's actions. If the school refuses to obey Scripture, the Southern Baptist Convention should abandon the school. 5. Someone, below, made the comment that Southern will be very upset that I no longer trust them (meaning that what I think does not matter to them). Look: The Southern Baptist Seminary needs to worry about God, and their violation of His Word, and not me. They are accountable to God Himself, not me. If you don't like what I have said please provide SCRIPTURE to show me where I am wrong. Where does Scripture allow for the mixing of light and darkness? What happened to the, "do not be unequally yoked", principle? Has Mohler and Southern forgotten that? Sounds like they have. Again this is a sad day for the Southern Baptist Convention. In Christ, Martin.
