This isn’t a continuation of my previous post, just a quick link to a story that Baptist Press (the SBC’s news service) ran earlier this year. The original blog post by Dr. Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, KY goes a bit more in depth than the blurb on the BP.
When I read this I realized that there are probably many others involved in the ministry who have come to disbelieve their faith, either become agnostic or atheist or at least doubt some key tenant of their denomination and yet are unsure of what to do about it.
Of course, Dr. Mohler says that we are terrible, horrible monsters, preying upon the faithful. I used to feel a bit like that, but I no longer do. I do feel dishonest, but as of right now I have no other option than to be something I am not.
I know this is included at the end of Dr. Mohler’s blog, but I felt that I should include the link to the actual study here. It is a PDF file.
