What will be the response to Paul Proctor?

Adrian Rogers, longtime pastor, preacher and denominational leader in the SBC, passed away today. A faithful Gospel warrior, he fought the good fight. But according to Paul Proctor, another deceased Southern Baptist pastor, Kyle Lake, was probably killed by God to send a warning of his judgement to the emerging church.

The Sexual C.S. Lewis

Get Religion covers the latest fad in Lewisania: speculation that a young Lewis had premarital sex with his longtime housemate, Mrs. Moore. (yawn.) London newspapers have been teasing this stuff for a week and now the New York Times is in on the act. American media only know that Lewis is popular with evangelicals and […]

The “Look At Me!” Offering: Trying To Hear What Jesus Says About Public Compassion

I miss the old days. If I’m saying that, you know that the birthdays are piling up, right? But I do. I miss the old days. What old days? The old days when you weren’t obligated to tell everyone how much you cared, how much you were doing for whomever is less fortunate than you, […]

Kyle Lake: Laughter In The Waters of Death

Kyle Lake died in the waters of Baptism at the University Baptist Church in Waco this past Sunday. You’ve all read the story, and I’d like to, respectfully, say a few words about a fellow minister whom I did not know, but whose life, ministry and death represent all preachers, and all Christians.

A Reformation Day Meditation

Jesus, Mom and Michael

I’ve been to school the past week. The school of life. God’s school. The best teacher of all, with lessons that will never leave you asking, “Now how am I going to use that in real life?” The class I’ve been taking is called “The Only Child Cares For The Aging Parent.” There are other […]

Smelling Calvinism On My Breath: How The SBC Looks From Under The Table

Every so often, I daydream about what I would say if I had to defend myself as having been a member of or sympathetic with that nefarious group known as “The Southern Baptist Founder’s Movement.” The Founder’s Movement is a group of self-conscious, non-apologetic Calvinists who want nothing more than to return the SBC to […]
