Last Saturday, August 4th, a number of Southern Baptist leaders met to discuss the impact of Calvinism upon the Southern Baptist Convention. It was mentioned that the issue of Calvinism is causing a great divide among churches in the convention.
Richard Land, the Baptist radio host who took a beating for some controversial remarks he made on the Trayvon Martin shooting, plan to retire in 2013. He has been facing an ethics probe into both the Martin comments and also accusations that he plagiarized material for his radio show.
He has been the president of the Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission for 25 years.
