Southern Baptist Mistake?

What do you think about the events that took place at the SBC this year? In June, you could find answers to this question all over the blogosphere, state papers, and so forth. Some answers were insightful. Others were not. Here in August, you'd be hard pressed to find much on this topic. Fortunately for us, Southern Baptist pastor Dr. Mark Dever is still giving attention to the events that took place in Greensboro. It may surprise you to learn that he's not speaking about SBC hot topics like alcohol, baptism, or private prayer languages. Instead, he's speaking about the importance of regenerate church memebership. Why this issue? Well, to put it simply, it was an issue that was dealt with on the floor of the SBC. And, Dr. Dever argues, it was delt with poorly. Check out his commentary and let us know what you think. Did the SBC miss this one? Has Dever overstated the situation? Why or why not? What do you think we should do about it? This subject is too important to neglect. Hope to hear from you soon. You can find his comments here:

Here's a little preview. Dever writes:

"Of course there are hypocrites in the church, but they shouldn't be there with our approval. We should ourselves be constant repenters and trusters in Christ. We should not aid unrepenting sinners in their own delusions of being saved."
