A Resolution On Theological Evagation

May 28, 2008

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.
