Baptists In Decline

According to the Florida Baptist Witness, which cites further sources, the Southern Baptists are in decline and have shown four straight years of such decline.  Ironically, while the overall numbers are in decline - the number of Baptist churches in Florida actually increased!

Normally I don't really get into such trivialities, but so often we see those who oppose us seeming to delight in any negative news regarding the Catholic Church.  While we have had years of decline as well - well, the moral is that those who live in glass houses, shouldn't throw stones; or considering the log in thine own eye before attempting to remove the mote in the eye of another.

I have no control over which messages get caught in the spam filter and those that do must wait for me to mark them as "not spam." A message caught by the spam filter may show up for a moment, making you think it posted, and then disappear. Do not assume I have deleted your comment, it's probably just the spam filter and it will show up.
