It is a practical impossibility for American society to remove all offensive imagery. The freedom of some constituency groups to express themselves runs up against the freedom of other constituency groups never to look at such expressions. The various images and groups are completely interchangeable.
Unfortunately, despite the broad scope of recommendations by the Great Commission Task Force, as yet, these reforms have not turned around the negative trends identified as signs the “Great Commission commitment is diminishing among us.”
after so much effort was expended to convince somewhat skeptical Southern Baptists that these actions were “of vital importance to the future of our denomination” and “key to making immediate progress toward a Great Commission Resurgence,” it is reasonable for Southern Baptists to expect to see some timely positive results.
As today’s left-wing intelligentsia hungrily anticipates the demise of the American Church, they lack a 2000 year historical perspective of church history.
The world has turned the church upside down. The modern church has not the spiritual strength to turn over a gumball, much less the world. Oh, how our churches are so highly adorned but little anointed!
