To all who have ears to hear: For full disclosure purposes before I begin: I am a Southern Baptist, I am a conservative-evangelical, I am a "fundamentalist" (if you let me define the term), I am a "trench warrior" of the SBC "Conservative Resurgence" (my credential is my Mid America degree), I am a grad of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (since Al Mohler has been president), I am a "cradle roll" Southern Baptist, I am a "Five Point (Dortian) Calvinist," et al. Most of you know me. Having said all of that I want to post, what I think, is one of the best articles I have read in Christianity Today in a very long, long time. I think the article is accurate (from my perspective). I think it is even handed. I think it is well written. All of these testimonials are considered from my view as an insider. I am posting it here to get some feedback, especially from those who may not be SBC. I would like the article to generate some lively discussion concerning any of the issues I have cited or the article itself cites. Here you are, and happy (or not so happy) reading: http://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2010/october/3.18.html Let me hear from you, whatever your opinion. :smilewinkgrin: "That is all!"
