In the weeks preceding this year’s John 3.16 Conference (see ad to right), SBCToday will post interviews with each person scheduled to speak at the Conference.
The following interview is with Dr. Eric Hankins, pastor of First Baptist Church, Oxford, Miss., who is the author of “A Statement of the Traditional Southern Baptist Understanding of God’s Plan of Salvation” (see May 30 post) and the Resolution on the Sinner’s Prayer, a heavily edited version of which passed at the SBC in New Orleans last year.
Ed.’s note: Readers may be interested to know that Dr. Hankins’ Sinner’s Prayer resolution was offered for consideration in five state Baptist conventions last fall, and it passed overwhelmingly. The state Baptist conventions of Alabama, Mississippi, Tennessee and Louisiana passed the resolution verbatim. The SBCT (Texas) passed an edited version as part of a resolution on evangelism.
