Special Note to SBC Bloggers

My dear fellow SBC bloggers,

I have received several emails in the past week asking "who's side" I am on, that is, am I "for or against Wade Burleson".

I am on Jesus' side.

Please accept my declining to engage in political blogging on the basis that it, in my humble opinion, does not serve any real purpose but to divide.

To be honest, this whole "political thing" within the SBC is absolutely disgusting and quite discouraging. In the pathetic words of Rodney King, "Can we all just get along?"

Now then, how about everyone deciding today what you are going to give to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering this year. Then, go out and tell somebody about Jesus.

God bless you!

Pray for missions.

PS: This post is not "aimed" at anyone. There is no intention of offending anyone. If I somehow accidentally offended you, please accept my sincerest apologies.

Bless your heart, man. There are probably very few missionaries out there who would ever want to engage in SBC politics. What so many don't seem to understand is that all we ever really wanted to do is just somehow allow the Lord to work through us in the cultures in which we were led to live. If we had wanted to engage in the political debate, we would have chosen to stay home.

It's disheartening that some who think themselves "champions" of SBC missionaries really haven't a clue. Thus the reason why I rarely comment on any of these blogs.
