One Reason Baptists are Declining

Oh, the reasons are legion, to be sure, but after reading Don Hattaway's 07/30/09 article in the Christian Index (the GA Baptist newspaper) I see the main problem is that Pharisees are running the church, more concerned with tradition & power than with people.

More on that topic later on, but for right now, I found this video & believe it to be the right initial response to Hattaway's poor theology & out-&-out legalism.

I'll bet a year's salary that Hattaway wouldn't dream of allowing this as a wedding in his church, despite the fact that most people loved the wedding entrance. News flash, Don --- when people see you as irrelevant, the Jesus we proclaim is cast aside. Maybe the problem is not the message but your method, a method that is driving people away.

Let me know what you guys think about this wedding entrance.
