There have been a few within the SBC who have a hard time understanding that any current discussion in the SBC is not over the nature of Scripture, but rather, the interpretation of the sacred text.
This next week, beginning Monday, I will offer five messages on this blog site that will deal with five major doctrines of the Christian faith based upon either individuals or events recorded in Genesis. I realize that the next few posts may not generate much discussion, for which I am glad :).
My intention in posting these messages over the next few days is to help us refocus on what is important --- the gospel of Jesus Christ.
Recently I received this quote via email:
"Christian conservative voters, believing the GOP-led Congress and President Bush have failed to push strongly on so-called values issues like marriage,may stay away from the voting booth in November or possibly vote Democratic.It has not escaped our notice that they waited until just a few months from the November elections to address our agenda, said Kenyn Cureton, vicepresident for convention relations with the executive committee of theSouthern Baptist Convention."
Kenyn is a great guy, and I know that he speaks for all of us who have a concern for the direction of the politics in our land, but I would propose that our truest agenda is the proclamation of the gospel of Jesus Christ.
That's who we are as Southern Baptists and I will offer the following the next few days as my small attempt to refocus on the gospel through this blog.
The Gospel in Genesis
Adam --- The Doctrine of Representation
Abel --- The Doctrine of Propitiation
Abram -- The Doctrine of Justification
"The Angel" -- The Doctrine of Sanctification
"The Ark" ---- The Doctrine of Glorification
I hope you have a wonderful Lord's Day tomorrow.
Blessings to all,
