LOUISVILLE--When Joseph heard of Mary’s unexpected, miraculous pregnancy with Jesus, he was in a dilemma, grappling with love and law, so he planned, Charles Frazier, newly elected Kentucky Baptist Convention president and pastor of Zion’s Cause Baptist Church in Benton, told members of the KBC Mission Board during their meeting on Monday, Dec. 11.
“This righteous man developed a plan to take care of Mary, but his plan was not God’s plan,” continued Frazier. Joseph, legally, could have had Mary stoned, he noted. Yet, his choice was the loving option of quietly divorcing her.
