Southern Bapitists officially bar Jesus from serving....

According to this:

"Also Wednesday, the SBC unofficially barred members who drink alcohol from serving as trustees or members of any SBC entity.
The ban, part of a larger anti-alcohol resolution that was easily approved by delegates, was proposed by Jim Richards, executive director of the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention. While stopping short of officially preventing drinkers from serving, it "urges" that no one be elected or appointed to SBC offices if they are "a user of alcohol."

Jesus, himself, would not be allowed to serve as a trustee or member of any Southern Baptist Convention entity.

Here's the whole article:

You hypocrites! Isaiah was right when he prophesied about you: 'These people honor me with their lips, but their hearts are far from me. They worship me in vain; their teachings are but rules taught by men.'

Jesus called the crowd to him and said, "Listen and understand. What goes into a man's mouth does not defile him, but what comes out of his mouth, that is what defiles him.

Nothing that enters a man's mouth can defile the man. Nothing.

He who has ears to hear, let him hear.

I guess booze passing over the lips toward the stomach cannot defile him
