A Resolution On Theological Evagation

As previously mentioned I wanted to evaluate the Mann Resolution that will be presented in Indianapolis in a few weeks. This should be brief.

It is a resolution calling for doctrinal precision in Southern Baptist life.

It is a resolution that is, itself, doctrinally imprecise. It’s motto should be, “A wandering Aramean is my resolution.”

We had to wait all the way up until the very first comment was published for the doctrinal imprecision to be exposed.

When Mr. Mann was repeatedly asked to be more doctrinally precise as to his meaning he repeatedly declined. He even invited people to vote against it because of his lack of precision.

Mr. Mann believes in his resolution in theory, but apparently not in practice.

It should be rejected by the messengers in Indianapolis because it is just short of being devoid of any real content.

It will be unanimously approved by the messengers in Indianapolis because Southern Baptists love doctrinal imprecision and because Southern Baptists love irony.

    Whereas resolutions in the SBC are the subject of great controversy and debate, and
    Whereas resolutions have no binding effect on SBC churches and are uniformly ignored by anyone who disagrees with them, and
    Whereas denominational agencies are run by the BoT’s and do not have to respond to resolutions
    Be It Resolved that all resolutions should be done away with.
    Be it further resolved that those who offer resolutions except those of appreciation to host cities, etc, shall be shot (not killed, just winged).
