Baptistm and Alcohol

I don’t speak about SBC politics too often here. However, I am intrigued with all the talk that is going on in the blogging world concerning baptism and drinking.

There is a church in Oklahoma that is considering dropping baptism as a prerequisite for membership. Now, they aren’t saying that baptism is not important. They are just saying that it is not a requirement for membership. If you want to read more about it, check out Henderson Hills Baptist Church’s website.

Another hot issue in the SBC is the resolution that was passed at the convention concerning abstaining from alcohol. It has caused a stir among many.

What are your feelings? Are these issues important to you?
