This book was written by a friend of mine and he does an excellent job in explaining how tradition has made its way into our baptist churches. While I do not agree with him on a few things, I did find my self revaluation a few things in my ministry and asking myself "Why am I doing what I am doing". It is a good read. http://fortheloveofthefamily.com/bookstore/travis-burke/
I have recently ran across an issue with our Sunday School classes. I am the Superintendent (that's hebrew for "you do this nOBody else wants to" ) of the Sunday School classes. We have a lady teaching the teens with the oldest ones being 15 which are her 2 sons (twins). The statement was made the other day that we didn't need to have a woman teaching boys over 13 years old. Since then I have inquired about the 13 year old rule. I have asked a few deacons, preachers, and friends. Only a few have a different answer. Most stick to the 13 year old rule. I decided to search out the Bible first
