I understand that the SBC leadership wants those that disagree with the current direction of the SBC to leave. I don't really have a problem with that, in fact I think it is a good idea. Let both sides serve how they feel God is leading them to, without all the fighting. What I don't understand is why is the SBC is opposed to the CBF becoming a member of the Baptist World Alliance? If you wanted them to leave, and now they want to leave, why the oppositon to BWA membership? Anyone have something to this story that I am missing? It also should be noted that Morris H. Chapman, SBC Executive Committee president has stated that this move by the BWA to grant memebership status to the CBF may have damaged beyond repair the relationship between the SBC and the BWA. What's that all about?
