Selected Quote

"There should be an 'Abstract of Principles', or careful statement of theological belief, which every professor in such an institution must sign when inaugurated, so as to guard against the rise of erroneous and injurious instruction in such a seat of sacred learning."

James P. Boyce
from "Three Changes in
Theological Institutions"
- summarized by John Broadus, 1856



Baptist Polity- As I See It, rev. ed.
by James L. Sullivan

Broadman and Holman Press., Nashville, TN, 1998

To ask the privilege of withholding funds from certain causes supported through the Cooperative Program shows a basic misunderstanding of Baptist Polity itself. Contributions are not for coercion or control. Trustees are for that. Contributions are for support" Mr. Sullivan's observations are most interesting these days. According to this line of reasoning, the "Texas Baptist Way" is not Baptist and BGCT leadership does not understand Baptist polity.
