An update from Religion News Service. Dan Darling is a gentle man of God who advocates for godly conversation and a biblical regard for one another as fellow image-bearers. He has written excellent books on online conversation and how we can better reflect Christ in them. In his conversations with others, he lives that out. […]
I first went to Africa in 1988, a life-changing trip to Tanzania. Eastern Africa teems with exotic wildlife and our missionary host told us many stories about encounters he’d had with the animals people travel the world to see. One interesting tidbit he shared with us stuck with me. He asked us what we thought […]
I have so many things I would like to say. I came into this week completely bumfuzzled about what would happen and everyone I talked to said the same. What a wild week it was. Almost everything we hoped would happen has happened. Ed Litton got elected. Hallelujah. The EC Business and Financial Plan was […]
The theological vultures didn’t wait long after Ed Litton’s election to start their attacks. One messenger asked Dr. Mohler to opine on the wording of the doctrinal statement of Litton’s church. There is some theologically imprecise language in the statement and instead of contacting Ed or the church to clarify their position (which is solidly […]
Congratulations to Dr. Yeats. Adam garnered 46% of the vote against a powerhouse SBC leader, even after one of the oddest series of events I have seen in an election. Last night, while I was giving my speech, the parliamentarians suddenly decided that quorum did not exist. They decided to vote this morning without allowing […]

Resolution 1: James Merritt moves Resolution 1. Baptist unity and maintaining our public witness. An amendment adding the word secondary to the second resolved section. Amendment failed. Nit-picking wordsmithing is now happening. Passed by about 99% Resolution 2: on the Sufficiency of Scripture for Race and Racial reconciliation Again, this is a biblical and unifying […]
H.B Charles is nominating Dr. Mohler. Emphasizing Mohler’s CR fidelity and Baptist Heritage. Dean Haun (?) is nominating Mike Stone. Emphasizing “Pastor Mike Stone.” David and Goliath references. Authority and sufficiency of Scripture. Fred Luter is nominating Ed Litton. Bold, but kind leadership. “Take it from Fred, vote for Ed.” Mary Habila (?) is nominating […]
I am way behind. In posting this. Most will be referred or ruled out of order. 1. Jay Adkins from Louisiana moved we consider having separate counsel for the EC.and convention. Will be referred to EC. 2. Allen Nelson offered a convoluted motion prohibiting paying 3rd party investigation groups until some kind of pastors review. […]
I have never come into a convention with less of an idea of how things will go. There were two votes that may give a hint. First, Tom Ascol made a poorly constructed motion which was ruled out of order, asking that any entity that affirmed CRT be defunded. He appealed the ruling of the […]
The Executive Committee is meant to be a coordinating and enabling group but in the last couple of years they have lost sight of their purpose. Gradually, they are seeking to take more of control over other entities. Instead of doing what they are supposed to do, they are gradually seeking to become the ruling […]
