Since September, 2006 I've focused mostly on either current issues in the SBC--including what we dub "denominational politics"--or the Calvinist Resurgence which, for me, remains a deal-breaker for the future of the largest Protestant denomination in the United States. If Southern Baptists continue to lallygag around while the Mohler-Founders Coalition transforms the fabric of the Southern Baptist Convention into the Particular Baptist Convention of America, the SBC possesses, under the best conditions, a half-generation of existence.
Mark it down...
When the theological giddiness of the "young, restless, and Reformed" wears off, Hyper-Calvinism--including its atrocious kid-brother, antinomianism--will sweep across the hundreds of new Calvinist "church-plants" the Calvinist Coalition envisions starting with non-Calvinist church dollars given through the Cooperative Program. The SBC would, under such a scenario, remain but an empty ecclesic hull, a living reminder of the theological, ecclesiological devastation "Reformed" bodies in Europe continue to exhibit.
Ah, but more on that later!
I've much appreciation for the readership I've gained over the past few years.
And, be sure to switch to the new RSS feed when the change of platforms happens (I'll keep you posted).
Grace today and always.
With that, I am...
