Lifeway Christian Stores Pull Gospel Today Magazine

Gospel Today Fox News is reporting that over 100 Lifeway Christian stores have pulled the current edition of Gospel Today magazine from their shelves and are now selling the magazine "under the counter". Lifeway stores are Southern Baptist bookstores and Southern Baptists are the largest block of Reformation Christians in America. Gospel Today is the largest Christian magazine. So, we have the largest group of Protestants hiding the largest Protestant magazine.

The controversial edition features five female Baptist pastors and an article on the growing trend of Baptist congregations ordaining women as pastors. Previous editions of Gospel Today featuring T.D. Jakes, a Oneness Pentacostal minister, were displayed and sold. Oneness Pentacostalism denies the Trinity. Lifeway either didn't have a problem with Jakes' denial of the Trinity or were unaware of his beliefs. But a feature on female Baptist ministers is beyond Lifeways' threshhold.

According to Fox News, Chris Turner, a spokesman for Lifeway Resources, said the cover was not the reason the magazine was pulled from Lifeway's shelves.

"The buyers said the statements that were in it took positions that were contrary to what we would say," Turner said. "It wasn't so much that there were women on the cover."

In the words of Fox's Bill O'Reilly, "what say you?"

Update

Wade Burleson, who has spent the last twenty five years pastoring Baptist in Oklahoma, has a really good post entitled "The Southern Baptist Convention Is Not a Cult: We Just Sometimes Act Like We Are". Recommend reading Wade's article and the 185 comments on it.

another "sign" of the times? women are trying for equal status and many are refusing the women's offerings. called by the Spirit is not something we are in control of but should be prayerfully attentive toward. time tells.
