Most of my readers are aware of my views on the public schools, especially concerning being “salt and light” as well as missionaries in the public schools. The entire system has a base rotten to the core.
Another fact that some readers may be aware of would be the fact that I am Southern Baptist. I don’t really talk a huge amount about it because that’s just not my focus, but when Southern Baptists are doing something great that I may be a part of, I like to talk about it. And, yes, there are some Southern Baptists doing something extremely interesting this year. At our Convention, held in Greensboro, where I will be live-blogging, some Southern Baptists, including Dr. Bruce Shortt, author of “The Harsh Truth About Public Schools,” will be working to pass a resolution urging Southern Baptists to begin removing their children from the Public Schools.
Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee member Roger Moran stated that the “public schools have had “a major role in infiltrating and destroying the faith of those we have been commanded to train up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord. Dr. Al Mohler’s call for responsible Southern Baptists to develop an exit strategy from the public schools was not only wise, but courageous, for multitudes of our own people still don’t see the inherent dangers. The time has come for the debate to begin.”
That’s just one resolution I hope to support. Another one would be to clean the rolls of Southern Baptists churches, working to make sure we a properly recording legitimate members, and not inflating the list.
It’s really an exciting time as we near the convention in June, and I hope you will pray for me as well as those voting. It is important to see what groups of Christians are doing when they gather to pass resolutions. There will be more on that later, but for now, please pray.
