Back in 1976 I was nothing more than an impressionable middle-schooler with a friend who liked KISS. Even though I went to a Christian School, my classmate introduced me to the group, and I thought they were kinda cool. Sorta.
Like I said, I was impressionable, and I wanted to be liked. Maybe that’s why I fell for the whole “KISS actually stands for Knights in the Savior’s Service” line. I guess it sounded cooler than “The Old-Fashioned Mountain Top Gospel Singing Boys from Bryson City, North Carolina.”
Now, to be fair, I never listened to KISS. It only when “Beth” came out that I actually heard them on some TV variety show. This song was unlike anything else they performed, and the one line that I’ll never forget was, “Beth, what can I do?”
What does this have to do with anything?
Well, it’s just that this year Beth Moore, the former darling of SBC women’s study groups, left the Baptists and the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 and went full-on liturgical Anglican.
Beth, what can I do. . . but say, “I told you so”?
Beth, what can I do. . . but shake my head at all the money you made off the backs of Lifeway shoppers while you secretly disavowed their beliefs?
Beth, what can I do. . . but wonder how many more there are like you within the Southern Baptist Convention secretly denying our unifying beliefs while attempting to undermine the greatest missionary-sending organization in history with woke heresies?
I guess the irony of all this is that unlike the ’70s hit from KISS, you’re not waiting at home alone while the boys are out playing; you joined EISS (Egalitarians in Satan’s Service).

That cracked me up.
On a serious note, imagine how much damage could have been prevented if the SBC still went by the Bible?
But I suffer not a woman to teach, nor to usurp authority over the man, but to be in silence.
To many people in leadership afraid of wokestapo.
You made me laugh and that’s a good thing! In my neck of the woods Beth is like an idol or something and if you express even the slightest bit of doubt about her, you dont get invited to sit with the cool kids anymore.
LOL! I’m glad I brought some Christmas cheer 😉
Nice to see the religious cults sow division.
Well done Anthony, now write a blog about how it’s the MSM that sows division.
Merry Christmas to you, too.
And Gods’ blessings and grace to you and yours. May you all extend more grace than you’ve received.
May we all extend the grace of God to all in this season and beyond.
