I have to admit a small degree of jealousy of David Platt. I have preached this exact point myself. But somehow, it just sounds more compelling and powerful coming from him. Most of you probably read Provocations and Pantings (you should if you don’t) and have already viewed this, but I thought that I would […]
Since the brouhaha about the 2011 Pastor’s Conference hit the blogs, there has been a somewhat surprising silence from Vance Pitman, the president of the PC and the one responsible for the slate of speakers. Associated Baptist Press has an article up in which Pitman responds to some of the criticisms that have been made. […]
Because I said so! Don’t argue with me, y0ung man. As long as you blog on my blog (it’s not really mine, I know), you will blog by my rules. Respect your elders! Maybe bossing you around isn’t the best approach. But David has written an excellent article at sbcIMPACT on “The One True Universal […]
It is stunning. Here’s the deal – watch the video for 6:22 seconds and as you do, pray for the people whose lives have been devastated. Pray for Christians and their response. Just pray.
Contrary to those doubters, the final day has come! Wednesday is the last day to nominate your favorite blog to make the tournament Blog Madness will begin later this week, with the 4 regionals and first round voting. Nominate up to 10 blogs. Even if someone else has already nominated them, you tell us who […]
I had a playful argument with my daughter yesterday about whether is such a thing as Christian rap. It is hard enough for me to go and hear my son’s Christian rock band (earplugs help), but I’m an old fogey and rap just ain’t my cup o’ tea. She reminded me that I was, in […]
Blog Madness is back for 2011. Over the next few weeks, while some little basketball tournament is being played, we are going to be holding our own “favorite bloggers” tournament, with a prize for the winner of LESS THAN $1 Million. (Lot’s less – mostly just the joy of being selected). This year, the readers […]
I had an idea last night that I want to share. Was it a good idea? Well, I guess you good folks will be the judge of that. You may tell met that it is a hare-brained idea. But, I’m going to put it out there anyway. Here it is: let’s run a regular guy, […]
When major sporting events are on, (such as NCAA Basketball Conference Tournaments), blogging hits tend to go down. Hope your team wins (unless it is Duke, UNC, Texas or Kentucky).
You are probably aware that a new controversy has broken out about the future of the SBC. Actually, no. A very long-standing conflagration has burst forth from the depths again. For many years, the SBC has been a traditionalist haven. The Pastor’s conference was one white man in a blue suit followed by another white […]
To President Bryant Wright and the Members of the SBC Committee on Nominations, Race has been a hot topic in the SBC recently. Dwight McKissic offered a motion in Orlando last June to include racism along with homosexuality as a sin that will eliminate a church from SBC participation. Johnny Hunt referred the motion to […]
I put out an appeal for help in posting at SBC Voices and the response was gratifying and overwhelming. I want to tell you a little about what we want this site to become – “the vision thing.” Then, I want to introduce you to our new team of regular contributors. Of course, we will […]
