Today, let me show you some responses to the news, and what I discovered when I went to find out what Christians plan to do about it.

Frank Page Shows Us What a Mighty Fine Clean Cup the SBC Has (LSP #36)

Reading Time: 10 minutes Well! Welcome back from Easter and our Prodigal Planet special! I wanted to segue briefly to show you something that happened last week in the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC).
