(This is part 3 in a series and is based on what has gone before. Read Part 1 here. Read Part 2 here.) A Shocking “Exegesis” of Scripture I apologize for what I am about to tell you – in advance. I used to have a book in my library that was written in the […]
There seems to be a lot of that going around – not just here but on other sites as well. I’d tell you I was “working on the problem” except I know nothing about websites or programming or troubleshooting. My hope is just that the difficulties will disappear and all will be back to normal. […]
Bart has just posted an article called, ” A Bloated Baptist Bureaucracy We Could Do Without.” Wow! You may love it like I did. You might get mad at it, as I am sure some will. But you ought to read it without question. I’m not going to have comments open here – follow the […]
Denny Burk put up links today to an important review that appeared in the Journal of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (JBMW) . Millard Erickson has written an important new book called “Who’s Tampering with the Trinity? An Assessment of the Subordination Debate” which deals with the issues in the nature of the Trinity that form […]

While some explained the context and import of that resolution, it is fair to say that many of us saw this as another in a long line of vapid resolutions at state conventions […]

Really. Stop blogging. This is not the time for that.
If you are reading blogs today, do something in the spirit of the Thanksgiving season. Take a moment and share with us what you are thankful for. This is a politics-free, theological-squabbles free opportunity to glorify God.
Ever watched a spoiled child in action? No matter how much his parents give him, he throws tantrums at the slightest deprivation. She believes that it is her natural right to get everything she wants and will let you know it if you do not please her. There are few things more annoying in life […]
We debate a broad range of topics here at SBC Voices. But starting Monday, and lasting through Thanksgiving, we are going to focus on praising God and giving thanks to him at this blog. Many of our regular contributors are producing devotional posts which will lead us in giving thanks to God. I do […]
(I published this Monday over at sbcIMPACT. This is a subject I feel passionate about, so I decided to repost it here, for anyone who wanders by over the weekend.) Christians put their faith in a powerful, living God who works in and among his people in grace and strength. When we submit to him […]
