Beating a (Slightly) Dead Horse

I wish I had read this before the whole BWA/SBC debate. I'd have certainly included it in my comments on the whole controversy.

For Christians to be linked in association with ministers who do not preach the Gospel of Christ is to incurr moral guilt.
A[n Alliance] which can continue irrespective of whether its member churches belong to a common faith is not fulfilling any scriptural function.
The preservation of a denominational association when it is powerless to discipline heretics cannot be justified on the grounds of 'preservation of Christian Unity'.
It is error which breaks the unity of churches, and to remain in a denominational alignment which condones error is to support schism.
That's a quote from 1888, by C. H. Spurgeon, after he left the Baptist Union over the increasing influence of liberal theology. Something for us all to think about.
