Call To Die

Then [Jesus] said to them all, "If anyone wants to come with Me, he must deny himself, take up his cross daily, and follow Me. For whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life because of Me will save it. (Luke 9:23-24, HCSB)

Late notes on the SBC

As anyone who cares about the Southern Baptist Convention probably knows already, Vance Pitman won the vote over Troy Gramling to become the next president of the SBC Pastors' Conference. I take full credit for this development due to my previous article. [The last sentence is a joke, because probably about 5 people read that article, and I'm not sure how many of them went to Orlando.]

Also, Bryant Wright won a run-off vote over Ted Traylor for President of the Southern Baptist Convention. To the best of my knowledge, both men fully support the biblical convictions expressed in the Baptist Faith & Message, and both men are committed to evangelism and world missions. I think I agree with the sentiment that a run-off vote between such men is a good thing, indicating that the SBC is not controlled by any sub-group within the Convention.
