Talk is Cheap – SBC and Structures

Today marks the beginning of the Annual Meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention. One of the issues up for discussion/debate will be Johnny Hunt’s proposed Great Commission Resurgence. I suspect we will approve the matter and gain another code word for, “one of the good guys.” I think David Phillips told me Mac Brunson suggested that no one was against the Great Commission. I remember the days when others would say, “No one is agains the Bible,” in Southern Baptist life. So, as it goes we will ferret out the pretenders, those who refuse to sign or announce they are for inerrancy Great Commission Resurgence.

Part of the GCR, anyone more in love with acronyms that the SBC, notes the bloated bureaucracy need for better management. Those for and agin’ will line up at microphones and wax either nostalgic or poetic. One suggestion will not be heard but should be read. It is offered by David Phillips. Take a read and interact there or come back and announce your agin’ it.
