G. Burch left this comment (completely off subject) on a previous thread:
Ten dollars to hear you speak at a breakfast? What’s up with that? There’s a guy (who will remain anonymous at this time) who is going to be in the room next to you wrestle his deacons in a cage match then give the spirtual application for only 8.99. I’m going to that one Tom!
Well, I have to agree that $10.00 to hear me speak would be a ripoff! But, I am not the speaker at the upcoming Founders Breakfast in Greensboro, NC. Mark Dever is and I assure you, he is worth every penny.
Mark is the pastor of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC. He is also the author of numerous books and the founder of 9 Marks Ministry. On Tuesday morning, June 13, before the opening session of the Southern Baptist Convention, Mark will be speaking on “Election, the Gospel and Evangelism.”
Granted, it’s not quite a cage-wrestling match, and it does cost a tad bit more than $8.99, but you do get a breakfast thrown in with the deal. Besides, preachers wrestling with deacons is not all that unusual in the SBC. But how often do you get to hear an honest treatment of the biblical doctrine of election at one of our annual meetings? 🙂
This is simply one more reason to make plans to be in Greensboro for the SBC. Tickets are available online, but only for a couple of more weeks.
