Let the church roll on . . .


Baptist Press has released an article quoting extensively from an interview with New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary President Chuck Kelley. His controversial sermon from last week’s chapel was widely criticized across the Southern Baptist Convention. In today’s response, Kelley reassures Southern Baptists that his goal was “unity” not an “attack.”

Kelley admits he “might change a thing or two” upon reflection, but he stands by the majority of what he said in the message.

Dr. Kelley may have aimed for unity, but what he got was more confusion, division, anger, and lots of hurt on all sides. The Greek word for sin, hamartia, means “to miss the mark.”

If ever a sermon missed the mark, this is it.

But like Mahalia Jackson sang, “Let the church roll on.”
