I predicted in this post that some sort of branding and ostracism would come about in efforts to strongarm people into affirming the Great Commission Resurgence document. In addition to whatever has taken place behind the scenes, Timmy Brister has contributed an online drive-by to make the effort more overt.
Do you have any questions about the GCR document? Have you hesitated in signing a blank check for an unblueprinted complete renovation of the SBC? If you have, then according to Bro. Timmy, you are a part of a vast cabal spanning several years marshaling forces to oppose any sort of a Great Commission resurgence in the Southern Baptist Convention.
- All of this talk about "Baptist Identity"? Just an anti-GCR ploy, shrewdly developed before anyone knew that there was a "Great Commission Resurgence" document.
- The 2008 SBC Presidential election? Frank Cox was really running to keep Johnny Hunt from carrying forward the Great Commission Resurgence. And what's really remarkable about this is that Frank Cox somehow knew that Johnny Hunt was going to run as the "Great Commission Resurgence" candidate before Johnny Hunt purportedly knew that he was going to run at all. Not to mention the remarkable foresight of someone like me, to endorse disingenuously one of the original co-sponsors of the GCR document (Al Mohler), knowing all along that health problems would keep him from running in the end and thereby providing plausible deniability for my covert scheme to thwart any resurgence in our faithfulness to the Great Commission.
- My blog post praising the Great Commission Resurgence document for containing within itself the core ideas of "Baptist Identity"? Actually a veiled attack against the Great Commission Resurgence document for NOT being in line with "Baptist Identity". You see, what I REALLY MEAN is often the exact opposite of what I write.
We owe a great debt to Bro. Timmy for his analysis. He is irreplaceable. I mean, I certainly couldn't have figured any of this out apart from his help.
