The good of the Conservatives: A firm commitment to Biblical authority, inerrancy, etc A firm commitment to evangelism and missions both home and abroad The bad of the Conservatives: A "college of cardinals" still picks the SBC president four months prior to a Convention where a president will be elected. The new state conventions in TX and VA are primarily instruments to support the SBC, and not-so-much to support missions in their respective states. Too many churches seem to be program and activity oriented, instead of being purpose-driven The good of the Moderates: They have discovered strategies for mission work never considered before(no segregation of home and foreign missions) They stress the need to do Christ's work according to the Acts 1:8 pattern The not-so-good of the Moderates: Their opposition to winning Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Mormons, etc., for Christ. Some moderates feel the "salvation" experience of a follower of these faiths is equally valid with the salvation of a Christian. Their concerns about the Bible not being "inerrant" make me wonder if they are trying to water down God's word to make it feel good for themselves. Their Sunday-school curriculum seems more academic than inspirational. Just as they claim "fundamentalists" are trying to force their agenda on everyone, I feel some moderates are trying to force their agenda on everyone(eg, gender-inclusive language at Seminaries; liturgical, high-church style of worship; acting like the NRSV Bible is the only real Bible--just like some "fundies" insist the KJV is the only real Bible. The continued criticism of the SBC by several moderates(can't you guys find something better to pass the time). Forcing churches to call female pastors and allow females to serve as deacons. Worship of "Mother-God", "Christ-sophia", etc at CBF general assemblies. Finally, something I have noticed within the struggles between Baptists in Texas. It seems like Conservatives want their churches and members to be SBC-only, while Moderates want their churches and members to be BGCT-only.
