Another reason why I'm thankful to be out of the denominational loop (see also here, here and here). And you thought the government had the corner on politicking...
On the other hand, some hard questions need to be asked. What basis do we even have in scripture for churches being "funded" in this way? Take a step back: what basis do we have in scripture for "denominations"? Or is this whole mess another case of piling unbiblical practice upon unbiblical practice, and then wondering why the whole thing tumbles down?
I know we have some Southern Baptist readers; any thoughts from you all?
