    Missouri conservatives organize against their former movement
    By Bill Webb
    Published: May 21, 2007

    JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (ABP) -- Eleven ministers who supported conservatives' efforts to take control of the Missouri Baptist Convention now say that the people they put in power have taken conservatism too far.

    The group voiced its concerns publicly in a "Save Our Convention" information session May 15 at First Baptist Church of Harvester in St. Charles, Mo. The meeting was attended by an estimated 175 people.

    Let's see who wrote the article.....Bill Webb....hummmmm. Where do I know that name?

    OH! He is the editor of the Word and Way. The Word and Way is one of the entities that voted to have self-perpetuating trustees in violation of the will of Missouri Baptists who voted for the conservative change.

    And you expect him to be objective because.....???????

    peace to you:praying:

    Just as much as anyone else who has a point of view. It is good to see that some other Christians are stepping up to the plate to put and end to the fighting unlike the other MO Baptists who say nothing, do nothing and are afraid to stand for righteousness.
