TS&TT: A Call to Action for Southern Baptist Pastors - Staying Long in the Fight
Today on The Sword and The Trowel, Tom Ascol and Graham Gunden discuss life in the Southern Baptist Convention. Founders was born out of concern for the SBC and we're still very much invested in what's going on there. With all the decline we see, why should churches stay in the SBC? Is there still reason to continue to fight for the health of our institutions and agencies? Or is it too far gone?   A Call to Action for Southern Baptist Pastors - Tom Ascol article | https://founders.org/2022/01/05/a-call-to-action-for-southern-baptist-pastors/ My Endorsement for SBC President - Heath Lambert article | https://fbcjax.com/my-endorsement-for-sbc-president/ Ed Litton, Southern Baptist Leaders, and Judgment Day Honesty: A Call for Accountability and Action by Southern Baptist Churches - Tom Ascol article | https://founders.org/2021/09/08/ed-litton-southern-baptist-leaders-and-judgment-day-honesty-a-call-for-accountability-and-action-by-southern-baptist-churches/ The 2021 Southern Baptist Convention: What Just Happened? - Tom Ascol article | https://founders.org/2021/06/17/the-2021-southern-baptist-convention-what-just-happened/ 2022 National Founders Conference Livestream: https://press.founders.org/armory/2022-conference-livestream/ Shop the Founders Press Store: https://press.founders.org/ Become a part of the F.A.M. https://press.founders.org/fam/ The Institute of Public Theology: https://www.instituteofpublictheology.org/ Wield The Sword: https://founders.org/wieldthesword/   Follow Founders Ministries: Website: https://founders.org Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/FoundersMin/ Twitter: https://twitter.com/FoundersMin Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/foundersministries/   All Founders Ministries resources are copyrighted and any use and distribution must be approved by Founders Ministries.
