Southern Baptist ‘Resolution’ A Microcosm of the Problem

(Photo: Screengrab/SBC Annual Meeting)

In what can be described as another wildly misguided missive poorly aimed and good only for virtue signaling to a cadre of reality-oblivious followers, William Dwight McKissic, an African-American Texas pastor, drafted a resolution that was considered at the annual Southern Baptist Convention meeting in Phoenix this week. What was misguided about his resolution? Simply this – McKissic sees in the so-called Alt Right, a source of unparalleled evil and hatred such that any rational individual would condemn it.

The Christian Post writer Michael Gryboski states in his write-up about the Resolution that, “The Alt Right is a political movement generally associated with white nationalism and known for launching intense attacks on ideological enemies on social media.” Oh the evil of such individuals who would oppose other people’s viewpoints along ideological lines! Note to Gryboski – this IS political discourse in America today. Social Media IS a political battlefield occupied by people of all ideologies including black supremacists, Hispanic and Latino supremacists, and every other ethnicity who has a grievance to advance.

Matthew 7:1-6 – Why the Confusion About Judging?

 

The following story appeared in a recent edition of Leadership Journal.

“A traveler, between flights at an airport, went to a lounge and bought a small package of cookies and a newspaper.  The woman found an empty seat in the gate area and sat down next to a man reading a magazine.  After a couple of minutes she became aware of a rustling noise.  From behind her paper she peeked to see the man sitting next to her helping himself to her cookies.  After the initial shock she decided not to make a scene so she reached over and took a cookie for herself.

A minute or two passed and then came more rustling.  The woman peeked from behind her paper and sure enough, the man was helping himself to another cookie.  Again the woman decided not to make a scene and instead reached over and took two cookies for herself.  This same process occurred several more times until there was one cookie left.  The man broke the cookie in two pieces, ate half, and slid half over to the woman, got up and left.

The woman couldn’t believe the audacity of the man and was still fuming over the whole affair when she boarded her flight.  After takeoff the woman needed something in her purse and when she opened it up the first thing she saw was her package of unopened cookies.”

Our assumptions can be misleading more often than we want to admit!

To Serve Man: Larry Nichols, Coach Dave, Tim Alberino & Steve Quayle – Jon Robberson

Thursday May 11, 2017

Tonight on the Hagmann and Hagmann Report…

7:00pm EDT  Welcome return guest, former Clinton operative (now whistleblower) and author of 28 Years to Nowhere, Larry Nichols.

In an early morning conference call with Doug Hagmann, Larry indicated his concern that the average Trump-supporting newshound is blissfully unaware.  Unaware that the soft coup, perpetrated by Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama has not ceased, but is, in fact, very much alive in the form of Antifa, the Battle of Berkeley, the MSM driven narrative of urban chaos and a nation divided.

Is it possible that the only obstacle between our normal way of life and the tyranny that is martial law is the simple fact that the-powers-that-be cannot allow a full suspension of the Constitution with President Donald J Trump residing in the White House as the Chief Executive?

 

Further concerns on Mr Nichol’s radar: the methodical and effective silencing of mainstream conservatism by the rankled left, the continued violence and racial divisions driven by Soros funded NGO’s and the recent bloodbath at FOX News.

Also to be discussed, what is the FEMA strategy known as Continuity of Government or COG?

Mastering Flexibility And Adaptation – The Amateur Society with Steven Menking

Following up on last week’s discussion of change and growth, we now turn to the related concepts of flexibility and adaptation. Change and growth are certainly necessary ideas for us to grapple with, but in order to understand this dynamic we must also understand our threshold for change. From a worldview perspective, flexibility and adaptation match this concept nicely.

What do flexibility and adaptation mean in this context? Where are the lines for ‘not flexible enough’ and ‘too flexible’ in the process of change? How are those lines determined? What do differing worldviews have to say about this concept? Why should we care?
