Competent before God

Southern Baptist Women and Soul Competency

(p.246) 8 Competent before God
God Speaks to Us, Too

Susan M. Shaw

University Press of Kentucky

This chapter discusses soul competency, which claims that the individual can know and deal directly with God. At the root of Baptist identity is the notion that each person can go directly to God without the need for any mediator. The Southern Baptist women in this study share an unwavering sense of their own ability to hear the voice of God and act on what they believe God calls them to do.

Keywords:   soul competency, God, Baptist identity, Southern Baptist women, mediator
