There are those cynics in the world who believe that Christians are incapable of dealing with problems in their midst, until forced to face them by the world.
Thankfully, it seems as the information age has allowed God's people called Southern Baptists to be able to police themselves.
Rather than go into the details of events at Bellevue Baptist Church in Memphis, Tennessee, I would suggest you simply read this article and pray . . .
Already this morning I have prayed for healing in the life of a young lady, her family, and Bellevue Baptist Church. I am also praying for the pastors of Bellevue during this trying time -- that if any crime has been perpetrated that the criminal will be justly punished by the law and the courts, and that any Christian guilty of such crimes will be graciously forgiven upon repentance, and all those pastors affected by the actions of another pastor, if found to be guilty, would not lose heart in the face of trial.
Thank the Lord this issue has come to light.
The seed of transparency, when watered by God's people, always blossoms into the flower of mutual accountability.
In His Grace,
Update: I have been told the child was a boy. Just as sad. Please pray for him and the family.
