Baptist Press, the news arm of the Southern Baptist Convention, published my article, "Theological Liberalism in the SBC," yesterday in their First-Person section.
I attended a
liberal religious college.
Though a fourth-generation Southern Baptist and grandson of a Southern Baptist pastor, a scholarship and my best friend convinced me to go to a school associated with the Presbyterian Church in the United States of America [PC(USA)]. The previous summer, at a Jericho Missions Conference at Glorieta Conference Center, I sensed a calling to pursue vocational ministry, and I entered my collegiate studies with that intent.
It did not take long to realize that, theologically, I was not in Kansas anymore.
