I've been watching this as its streamed live over the internet. Pretty fun stuff to sit at work and watch my convention perform its yearly functions. Watch it here! Some interesting stuff has already gone on. The SBC pulled out of the BWA formally, which isn't too much of a surprise. One of the surprising items that came from this was Dr. Paige Patterson's accusation that the American Baptist Convention had a group of churches that was called the "Evergreen Baptist Association" which are a network of homosexual churches. Thus the SBC should use this as a good reason for departing from the BWA. I've checked the ABC website and haven't found the "silver bullet" which he said was on their website. This was an interesting accusation to make, for it seemed to prate on messenger's concerns about the homosexuality issue. Another matter brought up by Dr. Patterson during his time was that because the "A" in BWA means alliance and anything we are allied with reflects what we endorse and believe that we as Christians should be mindful of that. I'm curious to hear other's responses on that. During the discussion of the New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and SBC sole membership a ballot vote had to be taken due to the close number of votes. The presentation was decisively one sided towards the recommendation of the executive committee, and I believe the messengers noticed that. Should be interesting to see how the decision plays out and what becomes of the sole membership issue. (Also whether or not the Executive Committee will allow themselves to be under the sole membership matter too.) The Pastor's Conference was good too. You can watch the various messages on the internet too at the above link.
