Disappointed at Falwell's endorsement of secular politics at BSC meeting

I read with interest the letter concerning the message delivered by Dr. James Walker of Asheville at the BSC annual convention. I was unable to attend but do know the Biltmore Baptist Church has been blessed. Our representatives who did attend remembered his words on what makes a spiritual church - prayer and commitment. My disappointment is the fact we had Jerry Falwell as the keynote speaker at the Ministers Conference. After reading an excerpt in the Biblical Recorder, I was disappointed to see we once again allowed secular politics to become part of our convention. I have pastored for over 24 years. The Lord called me to preach the gospel in its simplest form. We cannot legislate morality; it must be a rebirth through Jesus Christ. We need to get back to basics.

The pastors that continue to preach the word have two issues to deal with. Those being the unsaved and the world, in addition to the pharisaical views of Falwell, that if we are not actively involved in secular politics we are not bold. His definition of involvement and boldness is certainly different than mine.
