Standing unashamedly for the King James Bible

TRAVELING PREACHER SENTENCED FOR 'VIDEO RAPE’ 14 September, 2012 (Edited by DCB) – Southern Baptist evangelist “Sammy Nuckolls, was handcuffed and taken directly to jail after being sentenced to 10 years for video voyeurism.” In court the police investigator “...played a chilling tape during which Nuckolls can be seen time and time again, meticulously positioning a spy camera in bathrooms to videotape female guests as they undressed and showered. One of them says she was 17 years old at the time.”

Sadly this situation of preachers committing sexual sins is becoming more prevalent among supposedly “ministers” of the gospel.  

New Format for Sunday Services                                                                                                   We will adopt a new format for Sunday morning services. There will be a “classic” service and a “contemporary” service.”

YES, there MUST be a classic or traditional service for the “old” fogies and a contemporary for the modern thinking crowd. It is certain the two services really revolve around the different music offered!

Then there is the defense of or reason for;

“Why are we changing our name?

        • The church’s name will change to Church of the Highlands.
        • Our church has met in 3 different locations in our 122 years of ministry and every time we moved we changed our name to fit the location:
          • 1890 – Founded as Orchard Knob Baptist church at Orchard Knob School House
          • 1891 – Relocated to Beech Street and became Beech Street Baptist Church
          • 1904 – Relocated to our current location and became Highland Park Baptist Church
        • As the church will no longer reside in the Highland Park neighborhood, it will confuse people who may be looking for Highland Park Baptist Church.
        • As the church will be located at the peak of a mountain, it is on the high land so Church of the Highlands if befitting of the surroundings.
        • Further more, the new name grasps some of our history as HPBC.
      • Are we still going to be Baptist?
        • Absolutely!
        • Only our location and name is changing – not our theology.
        • Methods must change in order to minister to a changing culture with God’s unchanging message.
        • We are Baptist, we want to be Baptist, we will continue to be Baptist and cooperate with our Independent Baptist missionaries and the Southern Baptist Convention.”

If they are going to be “Baptist” why do they have to defend it? Also why is it that churches like this say they will continue to be Baptist but then they drop the name. Why couldn’t the church name be changed to Highlands Baptist Church? Another point that is interesting to me at least is that this church will “cooperate with our Independent Baptist missionaries and the Southern Baptist Convention”. Does this bother anyone?! Is there no longer ANY DIFFERENCE between being independent and being in the Southern Baptist Convention?!!!
