As a young Southern Baptist seminarian, I really benefited from MWBTS President Jason Allen’s recent conversation with SWBTS President Paige Patterson and Conservative Resurgence leader Judge Paul Pressler. At the end of the day, our faith’s orthodoxy will rise and fall with our faith in the Bible as the true, inerrant word of God. We owe a great debt of gratitude to these men and ought to listen to their story.
Of particular importance to me was the discussion on Adrian Rogers. In the Southern Baptist Convention today, it’s clear that we don’t agree on everything but I think we can agree on this: standing in uniform agreement upon the authority of Scripture, the SBC is better today because of the work of men and women like Adrian Rogers. Dr. Patterson is right. To be known as a man of God is the highest honor. Adrian Rogers was such a man.
So, without further adieu, enjoy this video with 2 SBC heroes (also featuring a less than conspicuous hat/jacket combo I couldn’t stop looking at — sorry, had to!).
