Carter Strikes Baptists Again

Well, Jimmy's at it again. Only this time, instead of meddling in global affairs, he's once again meddling with Christian theology, and more specifically with conservative, Bible-believing Baptists.

Check out this Christian Post article about Carter's "New Baptist Covenant." As you'll see, he's not really doing anything more than he's always done — to try to water down biblical authority and orthodox doctrine with liberal theological bromides. Here is a short clip from the Post article:

As the creator of the New Baptist Covenant, Carter sought to make “a positive, non-exclusive program of sharing the Gospel of Christ” that lacked “the legalistic interpretation of Scripture.”

The New Baptist Covenant has a three-fold mission that involves creating “an authentic and prophetic Baptist voice,” emphasizing “traditional Baptist values, including sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ,” and the promotion of various social causes like feeding the hungry, sheltering the homeless, and protecting religious diversity.

When you flesh out what he means by "legalistic interpretation of Scripture," you will no doubt find holes large enough to accommodate a Greyhound bus. Carter is clueless not only about "traditional Baptist values," he's also clueless when it comes to biblical doctrine.
