When we decided that not ALL Baptists were going to hell so we might talk to a few of them without sinning over much. :lol:

And, Ed we've argued in the past (ad nauseam) as to if homosexuality is sin or not. We have different views and that hasn't changed.


Ed: The struggle that you agree Methodist have with the issue of Homosexuality demonstrates that only some Methodist compromise with this particular sin. and it is not something to snicker about let alone to laugh out loud. :brick:

I am surprised at their reaction as well. They've been part of CBF all along, but not now? And the question is, since the governing board moved ahead with this, can they go back now? I don't think they can, at least, not without some resignations. It may take a while to see how many churches decide to follow the state convention leads and stop contributing. A couple of months should tell.

I do not know for certain, but what I am hearing in VA is that this may hurt the BGAV more than CBF because the individual churches will each have to determine the percentage of their contributions to go to CBF and to BGAV in a BGAV only plan. I have no idea about Texas.
