I Have A Dream…

I say to you today, my friends, so even though we face the difficulties of today and tomorrow, I still have a dream. It is a dream deeply rooted in the Baptist dream.

I have a dream that one day this Convention will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: “Cooperation is desirable between the various Christian denominations, when the end to be attained is itself justified, and when such cooperation involves no violation of conscience or compromise of loyalty to Christ and His Word as revealed in the New Testament.”

I have a dream that one day on the scholarly hills of our Seminaries the sons of Baptist Identity proponents and the sons of the Great Commission Resurgence will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.

I have a dream that my two little children will one day live in a Convention where they will  be judged not only by their commitment to Baptist principles but also by their commitment to missions.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day, down in Nashville, with its vicious Calvinists, with its non-Calvinists having their lips dripping with the words of interposition and nullification; one day right there in Nashville, little Baptist Identity boys and Baptist Identity girls will be able to join hands with little Great Commission Resurgence boys and Great Commission Resurgence girls as sisters and brothers.

I have a dream today.

I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight, and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.

This is our hope. This is the faith that I go back to the Southern Baptist Convention with.
