Scott Lamb recently interviewed me for The Pathway. The questions focused mostly on Founders Ministries and the Southern Baptist Convention. They have recently posted part of the interview on their website. Here is an excerpt with a link.
In what direction do you see Founders Ministries heading in the coming years?
Founders Ministries intends to continue encouraging Southern Baptists to be faithful to the Scriptures and working for the recovery of the biblical Gospel and the spiritual renewal of local churches. We also plan to become more involved in helping churches become actively involved in planting new churches. We will continue to expand our internet ministry, both in the materials that we make available through www.Founders.org (which is receiving over 800,000 hits per month) and our online Founders Study Center.
Do you see any encouraging trends in the SBC?
I am greatly encouraged to see how the conversation in the SBC has turned toward issues that Founders has been talking about for the last 25 years. It is gratifying to hear denominational leadership admitting publicly that most of our churches are in real trouble when it comes to the issue of regenerate church membership and biblical church discipline. At some point, the dialogue must necessarily shift to an honest consideration of how we got into this mess. Then, many of the unbiblical and unhealthy approaches to evangelism that have crept into our denomination can be reassessed.
Do you plan on submitting a resolution at the SBC annual meeting in San Antonio?
