Dr. Bobby Welch really shouldn’t mess with bloggers.
Welch said heâ€™d been wondering about Southern Baptists and that if â€œweâ€™d spend less time on these websites that weâ€™d be able to spend more time witnessing?
â€œDo you think if we spent less time blogging we might have more time to do some baptizing?
â€œDo you think if we spent less time fumbling around with those computers we might have more converts?â€
Welch advised the crowd not to gloat that heâ€™s chiding â€œthem blogginâ€™ boys. Why, you run around with that wireless telephone up in your ear all day long like a pacifier.
â€œYou think if weâ€™d spend less time with those wireless telephones and more time on the street we wouldnâ€™t win more people to Jesus?â€
Now, of course, I said that somewhat jokingly, mainly because I know that Albert Mohler blogs, as does Russell Moore. Come to think of it, so does Morris Chapman. And I’m certain that Brother Bobby probably wouldn’t mind my blog, but who knows. All in all, he has a good point–we can’t just sit around and blog, whether it be to uplift or criticize. We need to be hitting the streets, even if it means we lose some of our readership. Preach it brother!
