Burleson Prepares for Battle

Wade Burleson, an IMB trustee from my home state of Oklahoma, has recently crafted a very compelling and heartfelt message to the churches of the Southern Baptist convention: join the fight to be a cooperating convention or stand by and let some continue to restrict Baptist identity. He has aptly titled his work Crusading Conservatives vs. Cooperating Conservatives: The War for the Future of the Southern Baptist Convention.

I am not sure what the next steps will be. However, I do know that this is an issue worth taking a stand over and a battle worth fighting. I pray that these issues will quickly be resolved, but my convictions cannot allow me to stand by while some try to redefine Baptists in ways I deem unbiblical and unfaithful to our historic beliefs.

I read the blog post and the comments. Good stuff. I think Burleson is right on the money. I supsect that a professor at my former seminary would disagree, which would only confirm me in my opinion here.

Hey man, time for another post. All my readers always chide me for going to long without writing, so I felt you needed a little whipping as well. Get to writin' boy! BTW, you need to check out my most recent blog entry about a fellow Okie. I imagine you've heard of him.

Well, apparently, my Opera browser running on OSX does not support HTML insertions...

Let me try it a different way:

Sorry Krelly, but glad to see you are finally willing to correct my English. If my wife were only here to enjoy the moment.
