(Worthy News) - Amid the ongoing fallout from the firing of Paige Patterson, one of the most prominent leaders in the Southern Baptist Convention, many are calling for "repentance" and "reformation" ahead of their denomination's annual meeting.

In a Sunday blog post titled "What the Southern Baptist Convention Needs Right Now," Sam Rainer, who is the lead pastor of West Bradenton Baptist Church in Florida, echoed The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary President Al Mohler's May 23 essay describing how the judgment of God is on the denomination.

"God's wrath is upon us. Our God is a consuming fire. Excuses will work like tiny strands of straw standing against a raging wildfire. There should be no sermon at this year's annual convention. Leave the pulpit vacant. Let the room be silent and call the messengers to prostrate themselves in repentance," Rainer said. [ Source: Christian Post (Read More...) ]
