Memorable Snippets from Last Night's Reading

From Dr. Steve Lemke's article cited in my post here yesterday:

Slavery to tradition:
Just the fact that there was some question about this long-standing evangelistic tradition [invitations] was troubling enough for me.
Argue the point if you want, but because we've done something for 150 years makes untouchable?

There is always a danger of convention executives and staff forgetting that they exist not to direct the churches of the SBC but to serve them.
Like when seminary provosts take shots at Founders churches?

This is the first generation in which 1st John, 2nd John, and 3rd John have had more impact on Southern Baptists than have our denominational leaders and denominational publishing house (I refer, of course, to John MacArthur, John Piper,and John Maxwell).
And that's a bad thing? I mean, 2/3 ain't perfect, but it's an improvement.
