Quick Hits :: May 21, 2006
* Frank Page, pastor of First Baptist Church in Taylors, SC has announced that he has accepted the nomination for president of the SBC. Info about Page can be found here. Wes Kenney also provided a chart for the church's giving to the CP. While there are some questions about his views on Calvinism, he seems to be getting some support (including Wade Burleson). Also, Tad Thompson has posed similar questions to Page as he did with Dr. Floyd (which he did not answer). * Slice of Laodicea writes about the new idea of "Godcasting" and virtual sermons. As I have mentioned in the past, I am no fan of the multi-site campus church even though it appears to be the lastest move of the church growth movement. As one has asked, "I wonder if a video church meets the requirement of a New Testament Church?" * Tim Challies recently reviewed Mark Driscol's latest book Confessions of a Reformission Rev. and has sparked a lengthly discussion (160+ comments). The iMonk also recently reviewed this book as well (however his "truly reformed" addage is really annoying). * Joe Thorn has been interacting with Dr. Russell Mooore's article on Pop Culture found in SBTS' recently released magazine. Steve McCoy points out that Moore mis-stated Ed Stetzer and makes a correction. * Mark Lauterbach wrote a helpful piece on Humility and Blog Slander. I think Mark's pastoral words are timely and should be welcomed by all bloggers. * Alex Forrest shares his frustration over Pat Robertson's latest prediction. It looks like Robertson is God's divine weather forecaster. * Daniel Randle recently had a lengthy exchange on the issue of homosexuality and the American Baptist Association's recent split. He has added additional thoughts here and here. * Gene Edward Veith shares about the situation at Patrick Henry College and why he is leaving WORLD Magazine. * Tom Ascol has reported on two of the most ridiculous forms of trying to be relevant with the gospel. I guess you can call this hyper-contextualization. The first has to do with NASCAR and the other with wrestling. Does these two have anything in common? * Marty Duren posts the Memphis Declaration which was drafted by 30 people earlier this month. I think some important things were said and encourage you to read it. * Mark Devine, new on the blogosphere, has written on Emergent's Anti-Doctrinal doctrinal statement. Funny yet true. The blogosphere is abuzzin' of late, and I will try to keep you up on some of the pertinent matters through frequenting "Quick Hits." Have a great week!
