Southern Baptist Sexual Revolutionaries

In this commentary, Dr. Russell D. Moore reveals what he thinks is the most significant theological issue facing Southern Baptists right now. Dr. Moore is the dean of the School of Theology at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and one of my professors.

We rail against a decadent culture, but only those aspects of the culture that we haven't yet adopted. Just look at the difference between the way we speak of gender reassignment surgery versus the way we speak of divorce. Could it be that the difference between the two modes of discourse is because we have fewer transgendered deacons and Sunday school teachers than divorced ones? Or, worse, could it be because divorce now seems "normal" to us?

Wow! I encourage you to read the commentary and the journal article (it's long) he references.
