I have been a Southern Baptist most of my life. I was saved at the age of 10 at a revival meeting in a Southern Baptist church in West Tennessee. I graduated from Union University in Jackson, Tennessee and attended Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville. I am a proud product of Cooperative Program giving. I have been proud of my association with the SBC because of the Cooperative Program and the opportunity it affords so many to partner in sharing the Great Commission in so many ways. Sadly, this attitude is swiftly changing.
I am very concerned about the soon coming election of the next president of the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention. If the trustees look to Louisville for their next president, our church’s giving to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering will follow our giving to the Annie Armstrong Easter Offering: $1.
I am sick and tired of this ever-growing list of appointees being chosen to lead the entities of the SBC and their ties to Louisville and this Reformed revival in the SBC. I do not believe I will be alone in this position. In fact, I KNOW I will not be alone in this.
