    Yes, it is very sad. I cannot prove it, but I expect there are many undiscovered Baptist ministers who are predators. We know they exist because of web sites like this one. As Baptist are independent it is very likely that many go undiscovered.

    From the exposure of adulterous affairs, etc., there is, IMHO, no reason to believe the percentage of predators among Baptist is less than in any other group.

    This is just one of many reasons I believe lots of folk are walking away from the Church and Christianity .... confusing the two as one.

    Man ....do not get me started with this.....I can point you in the right direction to a church in NE Pennsylvania ....but there and again I can point you to a RCC one that has had allot of press in my neck of the woods. I solace myself with the thought that there is a place in hell reserved for each of these miscreants.

    Don't make the mistake of thinking of this as a Baptist problem. Also, don't make the mistake of thinking if we had less autonomy this wouldn't be an issue. Sin is simply beyond such things.

    you forget that most in here consider me to be a Calvinist & Calvinists believe in depravity through sin. Human beings are sinful no matter what stripe.
