Yes, we need change, but . . .

Brother Brim has done a superb job of describing the situation in which we find ourselves, and he has also done a fine job of telling us what any reforms brought about through the general conference need to accomplish. I am still reading and studying about the Call to Action proposals. I do believe that boards and agencies are generally too far removed from the concerns of the local church and from the Great Commission. I fear that some of the proposals which I have read may make this worse rather than better, however. I believe that we also need to do something about the seminaries which seem so far removed from the concerns of the local church and from the Great Commission, especially if we are going to spend a lot more money on them.

“The idea that moral hypocrisy hurts you among evangelical voters is not true, if you’re sound on all of the fundamentals. Being sound on the fundamentals depends on what the evangelical community has decided the fundamentals have become. At this time, what is fundamental is hating liberals, hating Obama, hating abortion and hating same-sex marriage.

– Wayne Flynt, an ordained Baptist minister and one of Alabama’s pre-eminent historians, quoted in a New York Times article, "For Alabama Christians, Governor Bentley's Downfall Is a Bitter Blow."
