Podcast Episode 27

May 19, 2010

Today we have the privilege of presenting an interview with Dr. Jimmy Jackson, pastor of Whitesburg Baptist Church in Huntsville, Alabama.  He is also the current president of the Alabama Baptist State Convention.  Baptist Press has reported that he will be one of the four men who will be nominated for President of the Southern Baptist Convention when we meet in Orlando next month.

In this episode, we were able to ask Dr. Jackson questions pertaining to the GCR Task Force final report, his thoughts on appointments to the various convention committees and boards, and how we can best work for unity in the accomplishment of our Great Commission calling as believers in our local churches.

There are great points about this guy that make me hope he’s elected as president of the SBC. He’s a staunch conservative and has roots in the CR. I read where he is very supportive of smaller churches. He’s a compimentarian unlike that dude out of Georgia. I believe he will appoint like minded folks to boards and committees.

I think this is a very important year for the SBC. The moderates appear to have really picked up some steam, so to speak. Don Quixote and his little minions are licking their chops at the thought of beginning to take the convention back from those “dang fundementalists, by gawd”. Some have said Don Quixote has drifted to the left theologically and wants to see the SBC go that direction too. I am certain he and other moderates want to begin a Moderate Resurrgence [(c) Joe Blackmon 2008} and see this as the best chance to do it.

Remember, it only takes one baby step to the left to start down that road. Electing someone who is not solidly conservative would be a small victory for the moderates, I believe.

Joe,

Spoken like a true and staunch Southern Baptist–oh wait a minute–you’re not a Southern Baptist at all, are you? Didn’t you leave because all of us were too liberal for you?

Actually, John, all kidding aside, when we left the church we were going to we left becuase the pastor, with a doctorate that he got by clipping a couple of box tops froma Cracker Jack box no less, demonstrated his complete lack of integrity and the elders of the church would not hear anyone’s evidence against him. We were looking for another church and found one that we really liked but wasn’t SBC. We decided we were ok with that.

Actually, the doctrinal statement of the church has nothing in it that any SBC person who would affirm the BFM 2000 would not be able to affirm, I think.

Just FYI

Brother Joe,

Great insight.

John,

I do not see anything in Joe’s comment that would raise a suspicion on your part. Were you just looking for a time to place a “gotcha” comment? Look, we certainly desire to hear from SB, but if those who are non-SB desire to comment here they certainly have the right to do so. At least he isn’t posting as a SBC voice.

Blessings,
Tim

“At least he isn’t posting as a SBC voice.”

What does that mean?

Tim Rogers

Brother Jason,

Exactly what it means. Brother John seems to have taken issue with Brother Joe for his comments encouraging Dr. Jackson’s election. It appears the issue he has with Brother Joe is that Brother Joe is no longer a member of a SBC church. All I said was that Brother Joe did not come on here saying he was a voice for everything SBC.

Does that bother you?

Blessings,
Tim
