Sam Hodges of the Dallas Morning News reports that Dwight McKissic and the trustees of Southwestern Seminary have made amends. This is welcome news since the scuttlebutt had been that the trustees were going to ask the Southern Baptist Convention to remove him from the board. I hope this peace sticks. Here’s the statement that Southwestern just released from the trustees:
The officers of the trustees of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary have met with trustee Rev. Dwight McKissic and have jointly agreed to put past issues behind us. We look forward to working together for many years to impact SWBTS and the world for Christ.
T. Van McClain, Ph.D.
Chairman, Board of Trustees for SWBTS
I’m glad to see McKissick getting to stay.
Yes, but isn’t a “secret prayer language” unbiblical? And if that’s the case, why would you keep a guy with such staunchly unbiblical views on your board?
After all, I always thought that in order for there to be tongues, there had to also be interpretation. Or am I wrong there?
interesting that I’m not getting an answer here…
is ignoring people part of the southern baptist M.O.?
I’ve written previously on this. Here’s the link: https://www.dennyburk.com/?p=400.
