By now most of you are no doubt aware of the "statement" made by a handful of people claiming to represent all traditional Southern Baptists. Aside from the fact that they don't, by far, and that this statement is nothing but a straw man to build division, I don't know what the point is.
I have been trying to decide what I want to say in response to this, but right now I'm just sad and speechless. This statement is historically and biblically inaccurate, mean-spirited and just plain divisive. I don't know what these folks are after. I guess it's just part of that depraved sinful nature that makes us like to stir things up. Oh, wait, I'm sorry. I guess my "calvinist" beliefs colored my thinking. Maybe they aren't really depraved after all.
Anyway, I may still come up with something worthwhile to say about all this. In the meantime, here are some good words from our friend Gregg at Gospel Driven Disciples.
