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 […]
1) Who is going to Phoenix? I had a great time last year in Orlando, getting to know people I had blogged with (and against). I discovered that rumors that Tim Rogers has horns are greatly exaggerated. I found out that CB Scott is a real person, not a myth. It was great fun. This […]
I received an email from someone who was “in the know” relative to some of the decisions that I have been critical of here. I’ll call him Jason Bourne (Obviously, NOT his real name). He responded in a reasoned and forthright way to some of the comments that I (and others) have made here about […]
I got an email a couple of days ago telling me what I had already heard. Sometime this year, the SBC’s best state executive director will be retiring. We Iowa Baptists don’t have a lot to brag about. We are one of the smaller conventions – so small we don’t even get representation on our […]
Dwight McKissic said something to me the other day that absolutely shocked me. He had called me about another matter, and but he told me something that really disturbed me. The podium at the SBC Annual Meeting last year was just like me – lily white! When he made his motion to make racism as […]
Read Denny Burk’s latest post. He denies the gospel, abandons the biblical gospel, and unmasks himself.
