I can't let this one lie (pun intended), during the time frame suggested I was in an SBC church, both a deacon and a delegate to the state convention. I had left by the time (I think about 2000) Carter joined the SBF a more liberal group than the SBC. I can speak with authority and certainty that no sermon requirements came forth from either the state or the national SBC organizations. There may or may not have been suggestions but pastors choose their own messages with impunity as they are beholden to no-one but the deacons and the local congregation that called them.
