SBC Baptist Press - FIRST-PERSON: Are 'Baptist' and 'Biblical' synonyms?: "Thus, the issues that are driving younger leaders away are not theological; they are cultural and missional. They are tired of being told that dress, worship style and traditional practices are biblical mandates when they are found neither in the Bible nor in the denomination's faith statement.
There is a gap between our talk and our practice -- we say it's all about theology and mission, but it appears to be more about doing things a certain way, a way based more on 18th century practices than first century Scripture."
