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.
