Discussion on Biblical Authority? No discussion at all !

In my mind this year’s Annual Conference will go down as a year with great preaching and the “same old same old,” when it came down to business.

When I heard that we were going to have discussion on Biblical Authority, this year, I thought it would be great.  I was especially excited after hearing the amazingly good sermons this week, so far.

But, ultimately, we didn’t have a conversation about Biblical Authority, we simply affirmed a paper from 1979 that offers a choice on Biblical Authority.   I heard from many friends, who told me, this is just the best we are going to be able to do now.

One other thing to note, in our denominations own research,  it was shown that those who see the Bible as God’s inspired Word ARE the clear majority in the COB.
