CBF Response to SBC Articles
Earlier this week Baptist Press, the official news agency of the Southern Baptist Convention, posted two articles attacking the CBF in one way or another. You can read them by clicking on the links below:
CBF church count violates church autonomy, scholars say
SBC, CBF seminaries differ in educational approach, profs say
I commented on the second article briefly in one of my earlier posts. It is interesting that both articles are written by the same person and both articles use the same scholarly sources. The SBC doesn't want moderates (although we are soon going to have to replace the word moderate with the phrase "anyone that doesn't agree 100% with a small group of SBC leaders) to come back, and yet they don't see to want to let us leave and do our own thing either.
CBF has responded to these two articles, and you can read that response here:

The Red Herring starring the CBF
Remember that crisis in leadership thing I was talking about? I think that certainly applies to the SBC as well.
