Interesting Exchange

McAfee School of Theology ethicist David Gushee wrote an interesting piece following his recent participation in a meeting of educators that was convened by the Baptist World Alliance. In the essay Gushee lamented the absence of the Southern Baptist Convention from the BWA and counseled ex-SBCers to leave their anger behind and to practice forgiveness.

In response, Bruce Prescott, Executive Director of Mainstream Baptists of Oklahoma, wrote an article in which he said that for Baptist moderates to forgive and to seek unity with fundamentalist Baptists would amount to a violation of integrity and to a renewed submission to control.

It's an interesting exchange that's worth the few minutes it takes to read both essays.
