Dr. Kelley is right on point. I am a professor and church planter, and as much as I love church planting, only the DNA of evangelistic discipleship in a local church (whether plant or established) can foster true evangelism in a church and community.

Easy believism, decisional regeneration, entertainment worship, seeker sensitive, purpose driven, moralistic therapeutic deism, churchianity, numerolotry–admit it or not, one or more of these are the hallmarks of most Southern Baptist churches. What did you think would happen in the Southern Baptist Convention?

    Could be wrong, but would initially think that the current “hallmarks of most Southern Baptist churches” might be directly influenced by what’s being promoted, if not taught, in Southern Baptist seminaries and promoted by SBC agencies.

    Is something wrong with making the decision to follow Christ? And as a result God graciously regenerating us?

    It is really not all that removed from Calvinism when you view the approach to sin. Both believe in a variation of total depravity that makes sin “not your fault”. The above you mention dumb it down and Calvinists are just totally unable.

An impressive message. I can understand why you’ve made the impact you’ve made in the church and NOBTS.

I’d like to state, the ‘Great Commission’ was commissioned to those who knew what a ‘disciple’ was. They were able to go forward to ‘make disciples’ because they were first disciples.

Jesus said this , ‘And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.’

It is each person’s ‘personal ‘cross’ that usually gets in the way of most believers from being Jesus’ disciple.

If they can just get rid of that cross and still be His disciple would make things so much easier. But that’s not the way. Either ‘take up’ your own cross or you’re not a disciple.
