Let these stones be a witness to what we have done here this day.

Morris Rocks!

You simply must watch Morris Chapman’s address to the SBC.

He has called us in the most powerful terms to adhere to the BFM alone and not allow these tertiary issues keep us from reaching the lost.

Thank God for leadership willing to do this.

By the way, dude can preach.

[addendum] In the speech he quoted Boyce who said that when the Convention can’t decide on something, the Seminaries should remain silent.

Wow. This reveals where the other leadership of the SBC is. This is not a blogger issue. [/addendum]

    Other leadership?!?! Blogger issue?!?! Surely you haven’t started believing other people’s press. These issues have always been important in the SBC at large. Thanks for the update.

    It’s not that I have EVER believed it, but it is often spun that this is an issue for malcontented bloggers.

    That’s all.

    Hasn’t it ever crossed anyone’s mind that the BFM is a starting point… guidelines that we must operate within, but should whatever means we have to maximize those guidelines.

    The problem lies in people who what to BLUR the lines that the BFM draws in the sand, rather than operate within them.

    Actually, he did not limit it to tertiary issues. He stated that we should not allow secondary or tertiary issues to play this role.

    – and, indeed, he was correct.

    Bart asked Dr. Mohler a clarification of the words “secondary” and “tertiary.” It appears that the implication that Bart is tying together is that secondary issues are those that seperate Baptists from others would allow for the agencies/institutions of the SBC to go beyond the BFM on issues that are “not Baptist.” Who gets to define that?

    Well, if anyone doubts that Morris is calling for our agencies and institutions to not go beyond the BFM, read the EC report to be debated tonight, or just watch the video at sbc.net.
