Over at Burleson Central Station there is quite a discussion going on. The blog comments have turned into CBF vs. SBC spitting contest. This isn't Wade had intented. Our thoughts are fairly straight forward about many of our friends in the CBF.
In my state, many of those who are active in the CBF are both theological and political liberals. We have sat with friends who openly state that most of the Old Testament is a fictionalized account of things that happened before Christ and that Paul was unoriginal and most likely inspired by Plato and Aristotle and not God.
They have argued with us until they are blue in the face that supporting legalized abortion and voting Democratic is the true Christian position. They clamor on and on historic Baptist principles, and at a moments notice will get busy blasting my “backward” Reformed theology, while telling me I am in the wrong denomination.
We're tired of the SBC being an extension of the GOP, sick of supposed “moral living” being substituted for righteousness, and fed up with the presence of pervasive legalism that ignores the very Bible we hold dear. That being said we also DO NOT approve of modern Anglican theology having a place in the SBC. We reckon there are a lot of people that feel the same way we do.
