BP This Week: Another Abuse Scandal

Individuals, Institutions, and a Theology of the Fall

John Stonestreet and Ed Stetzer discuss the astounding report by the Fort Worth Star Telegram about widespread sexual abuse among independent fundamental Baptist churches—and how by covering up the evil in our midst, we actually end up participating with evil. Ed also talks about the recent conference on abuse held at Wheaton College.

Finally, John talks about his ordination to the diaconate in the Convocation of Anglicans in North America and what it means to be under the authority of a church.
