[ACMPress] – RED BANK, SC – Just days after voting to have a statue of Jesus removed from their church, the members of the Red Bank Baptist Church voted to remove the remaining 66 books of the Bible for also being ‘too Catholic’.
“We’ve decided as a congregation to remove the remaining books of Holy Scripture because too many passages, chapters, and quotations are perceived as supporting Catholic claims, causing confusion,” according to part of a letter church leaders issued to the membership, as obtained by ACMPress.
“Once we determined that the statue of Jesus – despite having been here for eleven years – was too Catholic in nature, we took it upon ourselves to review everything else that might remind us of Catholicism,” the letter further stated. “We’ve come to the conclusion that while Holy Scripture is not entirely a Catholic icon, many people might perceive it in these terms. As a result, it is bringing into question the theology and core values of Red Bank Baptist Church.”
Red Bank Baptist Church has not announced what texts it will use during services moving forward, but a shipment of Rob Bell books was seen being delivered yesterday afternoon.
