Beth Moore Leaves the Southern Baptist Convention. What Does This Mean? The Convention is Dying…

In an interview with the Religion News Service Beth Moore explains that she is leaving the Southern Baptist Convention. Issues such as sexual abuse and how women are treated are part of it. But the rise of Christian nationalism and the embrace of Donald Trump in 2016 stunned her.

This article is an overview of a number of issues that Beth Moore had with the Southern Baptist Convention. What does her departure mean? Well the Convention is dying.

How White Evangelical Christians of the United States Never Learned From the Christians of Nazi, Germany

It is some of the bleakest times in European and German history. In the 1930’s the Nazis obtained power in Germany and they used their influence in some of the darkest ways in human history and they tested German Christians in the process.
