Spirit


I saw this on FoxNews this morning but I wonder if they are going a little overboard with this. It is one thing to be a cessationist but quite another to “despise prophetic utterances” to the point where you will no longer “tolerate” it. I think that Southwest Baptist is in serious error which will promote disunity. It also makes me question the SBC in general as it seems that they are taking some extreme stances which clearly are NOT Biblical (see Mark’s prayer for the SBC from several months ago).

For if you live according to the flesh you will die, but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live.” Romans 8:13 (ESV)

“Hatred of sin as sin, not only as galling or disquieting, a sense of the love of Christ in the cross, lie at the bottom of all true spiritual mortification.” – John Owen from Mortification of Sin in Believers
