A church in Dallas is now at odds with the Baptist General Convention of Texas after a recent decision on welcoming gay worshipers.
A letter was sent to the senior pastor at Wilshire Baptist Church in Dallas threatening expulsion after a recent decision adopting a ‘welcoming’ stance on LGBT worshipers.
The Baptist General Convention of Texas is aligned with the Southern Baptist Convention, which states, “homosexual behavior is a sin.”
This comes after a Baptist Church in Austin got a similar letter that it alleges was the result of churches that do not plan to welcome gay worshipers putting pressure on the general convention by threatening to stop giving them money.
Wilshire Baptist has been told it is “on notice” for expulsion for the vote backing the hosting of gay marriages and allowing gays to serve as deacons.
Royal Lane Bapist in Dallas was the last to be scolded by the convention six years ago for appointing gay deacons.
