(HOUSTON CHRONICLE) — Southern Baptist Convention President J.D. Greear will call on churches to reexamine ordination processes and “repent for a decade of inaction” on sexual abuse when he speaks to SBC leaders Monday night.

“We must repent of appealing to autonomy as a cover up for lack of accountability. We believe in autonomous churches, but we cannot practice that in a way that allows safe harbor for predators” Greear said in a comment to the Chronicle.
