Tonight another brief report from the SBC Pastor’s Conference because it’s late again and I’m tired. The convention starts tomorrow so the only news of the day was in this article on Baptist Press. Though I learned about it from Al Mohler. Also we learned that Mike Huckabee has changed parties. He recently switched from PC to Mac.
I was at the conference for 5 preachers. Here are the day’s best quotes.
Tom Elliff “If you cannot forgive, you cannot claim to be a man or woman of faith”
Michael Catt “Our preferences have overridden our principles”
“Carnal people will never care about lost people” –in reference to our need to be spirit-filled
Fred Luter Seriously, who in their right mind would try to quote Fred Luter properly? I just felt bad for whoever was doing the captioning.
Mike Huckabee “It’s not that the job is too big but that it is too small. They thought they would be leading a battleship but it turned out to be the love boat and making sure everyone is happy” –in reference to why so many leave the ministry
Alvin Reid “100 years from now nobody will remember Oprah”
