  • We should always be about sharing the gospel

    February 13 2012 by Carson D. Hilburn, Forest Acres Baptist Church, Lumberton, N.C. | with 0 comments

    The question should not be either/or. In the guest column (“SBC needs greater focus on revitalizing dying churches” by Paul Roberts) of the Biblical Recorder on January 21, the writer was discussing resources and energy being spent on church planting versus revitalization of dying churches. It should not be either/or, but it should be both/and. The matter should always be about sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ whenever, wherever, and however we can do so.

  • Being liked shouldn’t be a priority

    January 17 2012 by Jack Marshburn, Tar Landing Baptist Church, Jacksonville, N.C. | with 0 comments

    According to a guest column in the December 10 BR, if we change our name from Southern Baptist Convention, and if we cease being known for our opposition to immoral practices like homosexuality, and if we avoid any common ground that may be shared by some in political circles, then more people will like us.

  • Why change name?

    January 16 2012 by Doug Ewing, Belmont, N.C. | with 1 comments

    Why change? In the December 24 edition of the Biblical Recorder, Erin Roach reports that the MAJORITY have a favorable impression of Southern Baptists while only 40 percent are unfavorable.

  • We do ‘get it!’

    December 21 2011 by Anonymous | with 0 comments

    In response to the editorial, “Pastors, do we get it?” (BR, Nov. 26) as a pastor in North Carolina, at first I was angered and frustrated by this question.

  • Special thanks from Pennsylvania

    December 20 2011 by Roger Carlson | with 0 comments

    A very special “THANK YOU” to approximately 40 churches and associations who came to Pennsylvania this year to help us in the “fields that are white unto harvest and the laborers are so few.”

  • Thank you for giving to Lottie Moon

    December 5 2011 by Anonymous Couple | with 0 comments

    When we were fresh faced and new to the mission field, our then 8-month-old son was hospitalized and required surgery. It was our first week of language school. With all the challenges that came our way during those days, financial concerns were not one of them … thanks to the Lottie Moon Christmas Offering (LMCO).

  • Revival definitely needed

    November 21 2011 by John Alden Tagliarini, First Baptist Church of Bryson City, N.C. | with 0 comments

    I heard and greatly appreciated the words by theme interpreter, Al James, and convention sermon pastor, Darryl Craft on Tuesday evening (Nov. 8). Resonating powerfully was the call for unity and love of each other as believers.

  • A simple formula for cooperation

    November 7 2011 by W. Scott Thompson, Fruitland Baptist Bible Institute | with 0 comments

    In an effort to explain why Christian organizations and associations fail to cooperate effectively, a retired pastor in Western North Carolina compared Christians to children on a playground.

  • Giving Plan Study Committee Vote…

    November 18 2008 by C.J. Bordeaux, Durham | with 11 comments

    I am still overwhelmed at the voices of “friends” who have known me for many years, asking me at the end of the convention “When did you switch over to be a Cooperative Baptist Fellowship (CBF) person?” I assure them, I have neither flipped nor flopped to the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship.
