    Two East Tennessee Baptist pastors were nominated for president of the state convention at the annual meeting of the Tennessee Baptist Convention Nov. 11-12 at West Jackson Baptist Church in Jackson. For the full story see Nominations Link

    Interestingly neither of these Pastor's churches have ties to the CBF.

    I did notice that a conservative group in TN attempted to make amendments to the Committee on Boards and the Committee on Committees nominations lists; however, the amendments failed to be enacted. :(

    My is, in two of the states where the SBC fundamentalists should be the strongest, TN and TX the moderates have at least as much sway as do the fundamentalists.

    I personally do not care much for the CBF myself, there is a liberal wing - albeit small, that I think damages the credibility of the CBF. The fact that the moderates were able to elect a president who is conservative theologically and moderate politically is very important in TN. It is also important that the moderates were able to defeat the ammendments to the committe on boards and committees.

    My pastor here in TN is probably too conservative to ever be voted in as President of the State Convention. I think sometimes he may be too conservative for the conservatives...LOL But, I love him to death.
