A Southern Baptist pastor is urging LifeWay Christian Bookstores to remove a number of books from its shelves that he believes undermine key Christian doctrines.
Channing Kilgore, associate pastor of South Whitwell Baptist Church in Tennessee, introduced a motion at the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) annual meeting last month that called for LifeWay to remove books by teachers T.D. Jakes and John Hagee, any Catholic Bibles, 90 Minutes in Heaven, and The Shack.
SBC president Johnny Hunt ruled Kilgore's motion was not in order because it would have asked the convention to act like trustees. Kilgore says the books he wants removed from LifeWay stores are "contrary to the gospel" and the 2008 Baptist Faith and Message statement.
