Fat Pastor, Fit Pastor – Would losing weight help your ministry?

I’m not going to say waist size is even a top 10 issue in the ministry, but in our superficial society we can assume our personal appearance communicates a good deal about our character. Would you listen to a doctor who smokes in his office? What about a dentist with bad teeth? What about an […]

Yes. Peter Lumpkins Got a Time-Out

Baptist Peter Lumpkins Blog

I usually defend Peter’s blog as an interesting side-note to the Baptist conversation. Other times, I call him our weird cousin from Georgia.

In the past, I’ve considered a full SBC name change a worthy idea. But it’s more fun to be negative, so here are # reasons why the proposed “Great Commission Baptists” naming scheme is a failure. It’s a deceitful label. With declining baptisms and missions giving, this looks like wishful thinking. “Rainer said Baptists need to spend more time […]

But when I look back there was some dangerous lessons that never made the official syllabus. Who I am supposed to admire… What I am supposed to believe… Where I am supposed to […]

Tyler Durden & the Truth about SBC Voices

If you think this is a joke, then maybe (just maybe) the joke is on you.

In light of the most recent controversy surrounding SBC Voices, the editorial staff convened an emergency meeting to revise our policies. As this meeting progressed, some deeper issues came to light. We must now disclose a painful truth to our readers. Matt Svoboda and Dave Miller are not real people. They are merely projections of Tony Kummer’s subconscious. They […]
