Blogs have an effect on the Church

Think blogs don't have any effect on the church? Check out this article from Associated Baptist Press about the upcoming SBC's annual meeting in Greensboro, NC. (This is just down the road from us.) Blogging has caused a huge uproar in the SBC over the past year, and for the first time in a long time, the outcome of the presidential election in the SBC is uncertain. Here are two links that may be of interest, the first is the ABP article, the second is a link to the blog that has caused so much controversy:

I am not posting this message to SBC bash. Rather, I am posting it because it concerns the impact that technology is having on the church. I wrote a paper on this topic for Christian History II which I will post on the blog shortly.
