Over the past month or so, there has been has been quite a bit of discussion about the state and direction of the Southern Baptist Convention in Baptist newspapers and blogs. The discussion was set off by South Carolina pastor Brad Whitt, and a few weeks later I had the privilege of offering a published response in our Tennessee Baptist newspaper. Soon thereafter, Baptist Press of the Southern Baptist Convention approached Whitt and myself about running our articles as a point/counter-point. Today they were published together at the Baptist Press website.
