(Editor’s Note: Si Cochran is a 2007 graduate of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and currently serves as the youth pastor of Southern Hills Baptist Church in Sioux City, IA. That would make him my youth pastor! Si blogs at “Holiness, Justice and Grace.”) As the old Italian proverb goes, “Translation is treason.” The treasonous nature […]
(Editor’s Note: I saw this post at Anthony Russo’s blog, “Throw Away Everything”, and thought it was something the readers of SBC Voices might enjoy. Things can get pretty heavy here and a little levity can relieve the tension. Enjoy the post. Check out Anthony’s blog. It is well worth reading or putting in your […]
I appreciate Dave Miller giving me the opportunity to weigh in on this topic for SBC Voices. This post is intended as a response to Dave’s interesting post “Be It Resolved: Resolutions Are a Waste of Time! Or Are they?” Dave concludes: At the current time, here’s my stance. I see a little value in […]
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 […]
Tell us about your preaching program during the Christmas season. I spent 14 Christmases at Northbrook Baptist Church in Cedar Rapids, IA. It was not easy to come up with fresh, biblical approaches to the Christmas story. How many sermons can you do on the angels on the hillside or the Manger in Bethlehem? So, […]
Really. Stop blogging. This is not the time for that.
(Editor’s Note: Thank you, Alberta, for sharing this with us. Alberta’s blog is “A Pastor’s Wife’s Journey” and here website is “So You’re the Minister’s Wife.”) Thanksgiving is the act of giving thanks to a person or to God. It should be a genuine expression and acknowledgement of what has been done for us. Ephesians 5:20 […]

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 […]
