My recent series – “Declarations, Announcements and Observations” – represents why I have added my name to the Memphis Declaration. For example, I apologize to the leadership and members of the Baptist World Alliance for the way in which the leaders of the SBC acted with regard to our pulling out of the very organization we helped to found. No amount of spin will convince me this was anything but the result of making room for the CBF. I apologize that we looked for uniformity rather than unity. May God continue to bless your work.
