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


Don't just do something, stand there!
Southern Seminary and the Abstract of Principles

11/1/2000
From The Southern Seminary Magazine,November 2000 (Volume 68, Number 4), pages 2-5
My design today on this day which will ever remain sacred in my memory as the occasion of my own public attestation of this confession is for us to consider the central role of the Abstract of Principles in structuring the identity of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. [Read More]

Baptists, the Bible and confessions
The need for statements of faith

From The Southern Seminary Magazine, November 2000 (Volume 68, Number 4), pages 13-15
Baptists have adopted creeds throughout their history. They probably have adopted creeds more than any other denomination.

A survey of the 2000 Baptist Faith and Message

From The Southern Seminary Magazine, November 2000 (Volume 68, Number 4), pages 10-12
On June 14, 2000, Southern Baptists gathered in Orlando, Florida, and revised their confession of faith. Our theological convictions and commitments were boldly set forth as we prepare to face the challenges of the next century. This revision of our confession was overwhelmingly adopted by the Convention in session. Not surprising, the secular press focused on one article (the Church and what it says about women serving as pastor), and more often than not, either misrepresented or misunderstood what we were saying.

For the Bible tells me so
Have Baptists replaced Jesus with a book?

11/1/2000
It must have been quite a business meeting. The word of what had happened at Berea Baptist Church had reached even to the editorial pages of the Kentucky Baptist newspaper, the Western Recorder. It was not a sex scandal or an embezzlement scheme. Instead, a guest preacher had dared to say that "our Christianity rests upon our experience of God," rather than on the authority of the Bible.

Doctrinal integrity paramount for Southern Seminary
11/1/2000
The debate over the Baptist Faith and Message has been one of the great clarifying events of Southern Baptist history. The Southern Baptist Convention's overwhelming endorsement of the proposals put forth by the Baptist Faith and Message Study Committee is a clear sign of doctrinal solidarity and consensus. Those who reject the Baptist Faith and Message demonstrate how far they now stand from the denomination's mainstream. [Read More]
