Jerry Rankin: Leaders in Denial

We at BtT would like to make you aware of Jerry Rankin’s recent post, “Leaders in Denial, at his blogsite Ranking Connecting. In the post, Rankin argues that some SBC leaders are in denial, thinking that the SBC is in good shape, that it actually has 16 million members, that the “Covenant for a New Century” actually poised us for the 21st century, and so forth. But the reality, he argues, is that the SBC is not in good shape, has seen a 20 year decline in baptisms, is divided by many factions, and gives approximately 2 cents on the dollar to world missions. In the end, he argues, we need to examine ourselves thoroughly and be willing to change what needs to be changed so that we can fulfill God’s calling.
