An Expert on Baptist Polity?October 09, 2007
Ethics Daily ran my latest piece today. It is entitled "An Expert on Baptist Polity?" The piece deals with a recent announcement by the Missouri Baptist Convention that they will use Louisiana Baptist Convention executive director David Hankins as one of their experts on Baptist polity. His testimony is supposed to support the MBC's lawsuit against five Missouri Baptist ministries. However, as my piece demonstrates, Hankins has been involved with other Baptist convention conflicts that suggest he does not understand historic Baptist polity.
