A Collection of Retrospective Blog Responses to the SBC Annual Meeting in New Orleans

July 8, 2012

The following are a collection of a few blog posts out of the hundreds of posts responding to the SBC annual meeting and the issues arising from it. These are listed simply to pull these diverse posts into a single forum (since most people probably missed at least some of them) to facilitate further dialogue. Of course, SBC Today does not (and could not possibly) endorse all of the diverse perspectives presented in these posts.

About the “Traditional Southern Baptist” Statement on Salvation

  • Of Unity and Heresy,” by Rick Patrick in SBC Voices, with an evaluation of the Unity resolution and a rejection of the charge of heresy by some against the traditional Southern Baptist understanding of salvation statement.
  • Chris/SBC,” by Chris Justice in The Bridge blog, with his reflections on the SBC in general and the salvation statement in particular.
  • Traditionalist Troublemakers? The Truth,” by Bart Barber in the PraiseGod Barebones blog, with a reminder that the framers of the document did not, in fact, do what they said they would not do with the statement, and not the rather paranoid projections of its critics.
  • Puzzling Ideas and Views of the Anti-Traditionalists,” by Hariette Peterson in the SBC Encounters blog, with their commentary about how strange and unreasonable she has found the responses of the Anti-Traditional Baptists has been to the modest proposal they have made public.
  • Breaking News: Baptists Do Dance,” by Tim Guthrie in the Winning Truth blog, noting Baptists “dancing’ between the soteriological divide between Calvinistic Baptists and the majority of Baptists.
  • My Take on the ‘Statement of a Traditional Southern Baptist Understanding of God’s Plan of Salvation,’” by Trey Medley in the WhyTheology blog, with reflections on the Salvation statement, and a withering critique of some of its critics.
