Relatable with Allie Beth Stuckey: Today we’re talking all things revolving around the Baptist church. Popular Southern Baptist pastor Matt Chandler announced over the weekend that he’s temporarily stepping down from his role as lead pastor of his church in the aftermath of an inappropriate online relationship. We discuss his impact on the church during his rise in popularity and why this seems to be a good example of how a church should discipline pastors. This comes at the same time that the Department of Justice investigates the Southern Baptist Convention. We take a look at this and ask the question: Is this investigation legitimate? Then, we discuss a recent Presbyterian podcast in which one contributor claimed Baptist theology caused transgenderism. We finish off with a quick comparison between Baptist theology and Presbyterian theology.
