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


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. Either way, I think SBC Voices should be a place where outliers find their place. He earned a brief time-out the Jonathan Merritt posts. That seems over except for a few private grudges.

Who Knew Good Seminaries Could Be So Dangerous?


I spend almost 8 years in a very good Seminary & Bible College. I am greatly blessed by the correct information I received. 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 […]

The Future of SBC Voices?


Just to start this thing out, let me say that I don’t really read this blog. While I am the one who launched it a few years back and worked to get it off the ground, I’ve moved on. It’s just not something I think about more than once a month. The rare exception is […]

Pastor Appreciation Day: The Rest of the Story?


I was doing a little research last night about Pastor Appreciation Month. It turns out this unofficial holiday is better known as “Clergy Appreciation Day” or “Clergy Appreciation Month.” No Wikipedia page = more work. I found some clues on the Hallmark website. Notably the holiday only dates back to 1992 and is always celebrated on […]
