No RX Vpxl, My previous post revealed the meaning and significance of an endorsement. To endorse literally means "to write on the back of, 50mg Vpxl, 40mg Vpxl, " and it implies the sanction or approval of all that is contained within the thing endorsed, protestations to the contrary notwithstanding, 150mg Vpxl. 750mg Vpxl, I thought this picture was needed, just to remind everyone that the official SBC establishment blog, Vpxl overseas, 1000mg Vpxl, previously guilty of questioning the character and leadership of entity presidents, carries the endorsement of the men pictured, 20mg Vpxl. Vpxl usa, This has further significance on a day when said blog has, without any shade of nuance, Vpxl us, Vpxl mexico, called one of those presidents, Dr, Vpxl india. Vpxl paypal, Paige Patterson of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, a liar, 250mg Vpxl. Vpxl japan, I can hear the objections now:
"They were just endorsing conversation!"
"They're not responsible for what we write!"
"They just think it's important to exchange ideas!"
My response to such nonsense is in the form of two questions related to my previous post:

Discount Hormone, Recently, I felt compelled to do a little bit of research on the origin and meaning of the word "endorse." The title of this post is the Anglo-French word from which the English word is derived, and it apparently has as its most literal meaning "to write on the back of."
This makes sense when one thinks about the word "dorsal," describing the back of something, and most commonly the fin on the back of a fish. It also makes sense to me as I remember my high school economics class, Hormone coupon, 500mg Hormone, where we learned all about endorsing checks. When I endorse a check in order to cash it, 200mg Hormone, 100mg Hormone, I am declaring that no matter what is written on the front of that check, I am good for it, 50mg Hormone. Hormone ebay, I am binding myself to stand behind it, and if it should turn out to be a worthless document, Hormone india, Hormone craiglist, I will be forced to pay to the penny the amount on that check.
"Endorse" is a transitive verb, Hormone us, 40mg Hormone, and its noun form, "endorsement, Hormone usa, 150mg Hormone, " has as the third definition "Sanction, approve, Hormone australia, 1000mg Hormone, " according to the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary. Clearly, endorsements and the act of endorsing are things not to be taken lightly, Discount Hormone.
I share all this research in light of some highly-touted endorsements of the new incarnation of SBCOutpost, Hormone overseas. 30mg Hormone, As you probably know, this group blog has been endorsed by three presidents of Southern Baptist Convention entities (and one university president), 750mg Hormone. 20mg Hormone, You might also be aware that writers on this blog have, in the last week, Hormone paypal, 250mg Hormone, made pointed and direct attacks against the character, intelligence, Hormone mexico, Hormone uk, and leadership of two men who serve as president at other entities.
I thought it might be helpful to share a little about what I've learned about the meaning and significance of this word, 10mg Hormone, Hormone japan, because I would expect that in short order we will hear, from some defenders of SBCOutpost, Hormone canada, assertions of how little those endorsements mean, and condescending statements to the effect that they should not be taken as an approval of everything posted there. Discount Hormone, In fact, after the endorsements are so minimized, one might be left wondering why they appeared in the first place, meaningless statements that they are.
As a public service, I've come up with a little exercise* that will help us all. The image in this post is of a check. It is made out for $1,000, and the "Pay to the order of" line is blank. Print that check out, write your own name on that blank line, endorse it, and cash it at the nearest branch of your bank. Then in a couple of days, when the bank calls to demand that you pay them $1,000 because the check was phony (assuming they don't laugh in your face to begin with), tell them that just because you "wrote on the back" of that check doesn't mean you were standing behind what was on the front of it. This will be a lesson you will not soon forget.
*OBLIGATORY DISCLAIMER: Please do not, under any circumstances,
attempt this exercise. The check, and the signature, are fake..

Discount Tindamax, In doing some research for a study this afternoon, I ran across an article written sometime between 1920 and 1925. It was titled "The Baptist Denomination is not a Free Lance Club, Tindamax australia, Tindamax craiglist, " though I suspect that headline was written when Baptist Press published the article in 2002.
It was written by Edgar Young Mullins, Tindamax india, Tindamax canada, fourth president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, and president of the Southern Baptist Convention from 1921-1924, 1000mg Tindamax. 10mg Tindamax, Dr. Mullins was the primary architect of the 1925 Baptist Faith and Message, Tindamax overseas, 20mg Tindamax, and in this article he defends the right of Baptist groups to publish statements of faith. Interestingly, in the article, he uses the terms "statement of faith," "confession," and "creed" interchangeably, Discount Tindamax. While I found some things in the article with which I do not readily agree, Tindamax paypal, 30mg Tindamax, I believe the paragraph below contains much wisdom that can be applied to our contemporary situation:
"The group has liberties as a group. Two men or two million men have the right to unite for common ends on a common doctrinal platform, Tindamax usa, Tindamax coupon, whether that platform be economic, political or religious, Tindamax mexico. 250mg Tindamax, This is an inalienable right of the group. Free and voluntary association on a common platform for common ends is what made America an independent nation, 50mg Tindamax. Discount Tindamax, A political party without a platform is unthinkable. Tindamax japan, A denomination controlled by a group who have no declared platform is heading for the rocks. The Baptist denomination has never allowed creeds to be imposed upon it by others, Tindamax ebay. 750mg Tindamax, It has never compelled anyone in the denomination to accept the Baptist confessions of faith. But Baptists have always insisted upon their own right to declare their beliefs in a definite, 200mg Tindamax, 150mg Tindamax, formal way, and to protect themselves by refusing to support men in important places as teachers and preachers who do not agree with them, 100mg Tindamax. Tindamax us, This group right of self-protection is a sacred as any individual right. If a group of men known as Baptists consider themselves trustees of certain great truths, Tindamax uk, 40mg Tindamax, they have an inalienable right to conserve and propagate those truths unmolested by others in the denomination who oppose those truths. The latter have an equal right to unite with another group agreeing with them, 500mg Tindamax. But they have no right to attempt to make of the Baptist denomination a free lance club."

My friend Robin Foster recently posted Petcam For Sale, a quote taken from an entry by Wade Burleson in a discussion forum. In this quote, Wade Burleson suggests that a parallel exists between the anger directed toward him by a fellow IMB trustee and the anger displayed by those involved in cults or dysfunctional families toward the one who reports the abuse taking place. In a comment on Robin's post, Petcam uk, Wade attempts to suggest that his analogy was an attempt to illustrate the reaction of the person who began the comment thread, but reading the remarks in context causes me to doubt that assertion. Petcam mexico, I was immediately struck by the continuation of a pattern exhibited by Wade whereby he will say something that can only be taken as a broad swipe at his fellow trustees, and then express shock when those statements are perceived by some as "gossip and slander."
I left a comment on Robin's post pointing out this pattern, and was soon (and not so gently) challenged to provide "one - and I mean just one - example" of this pattern. This post, 50mg Petcam, with quotes and links below, are my attempt to meet that challenge. Let the reader judge:
Conservatives who loved the battles of decades past have fallen victim to a crusading mentality of bloodthirst, Petcam For Sale. 750mg Petcam, Since all the liberals are gone, conservative cruasaders are now killing fellow conservatives.
A clear understanding of how this war is proceeding may be seen in the recent actions of the International Mission Board, an agency that I now serve as trustee, 40mg Petcam.
Why have some conservative crusaders now insisted on new policies at the IMB regarding tongues. 100mg Petcam, Again, it seems clear to me that some conservative crusaders have yet to learn how to sheath the sword, and rather than cooperate with fellow conservatives in reaching the world with the gospel of Jesus Christ, they have gone after the head of Dr, 500mg Petcam. Petcam For Sale, Jerry Rankin. I have been told by an authority in the crusading effort that there are some trustees who will settle for nothing less than Dr. Rankin's "head on a platter."
Trustees of agencies are being "vetted" or cleared by men and women who are of the opinion that no conservative is worthy of leadership that does not toe the party line.
Crusading conservatives are using private meetings at trustee meetings, an unethical violation of all agencies' guidelines, Petcam usa, to cram their agendas through. Crusading conservatives are influencing nominating committee members of various states to place on the different boards and agencies of the SBC those who are in lock step with crusader goals. Agency heads who are not the appointed leaders of crusaders, i.e, Petcam For Sale. Petcam us, elected by the crusaders themselves, are being forced to resign or simply removed.
Crusaders gather to elect chairmen of the boards and appoint committee chairmen. Crusaders have an agenda and if anyone steps in their way they become vicious, Petcam australia. Ask someone who has dared to speak out against a crusader.
I, and others, are now being attacked by conservative crusaders who want to rid our convention of fellow conservatives who don't interpret Scripture like they do. These crusaders refuse cooperation in favor of conformity, Petcam canada, and I really think it is because they have forgotten how to minister in the power of the Spirit through prayer, humility and cooperation.
Are there yet more examples, 150mg Petcam, you ask. Surely:
I have said that I believe there are just a few, 250mg Petcam, I reiterate, just a few trustees of the IMB who meet on a regular basis to subvert the leadership of Jerry Rankin.
I have stated that there seems to be an effort by some, not all, to purge anybody from service within the SBC who does not interpret non-essential doctrines he way some leaders say they must be interpreted, Petcam For Sale.
That which I have been most vocal about is a subgroup of trustees who seem to control the direction, Petcam craiglist, agenda and business of the IMB. I have much first hand information about this, 30mg Petcam, but have chosen not to go into detail in my blog at this time.
Are we going to allow principled dissent. I am just one trustee among over 80 trustees from around the world, 200mg Petcam. Petcam For Sale, Surely, the convention is big enough for people who disagree to work together. Cults conform. Christianity connects.
I have felt for some time that there are a few trustees who are dead set on opposing the direction, vision and leadership of Dr. Jerry Rankin.
Surely some trustees who sought to drive the new policy change on "private prayer language" did not do so to embarrass Dr. Rankin, who himself has a private prayer language, Petcam For Sale. Surely, 10mg Petcam, a majority of trustees did not blindly follow trustee leadership without personally thinking through the ramifications of such a significant policy change. Surely trustees understand that the new policy did nothing but disown certain people within our convention since the former policy already prohibited the public practice of tongues. Surely not.
What we tolerate, we validate. If we allow ourselves to be bullied we are ultimately cooperating with our own abuse. Petcam For Sale, It doesn't matter how much we seethe internally or complain to others, if we allow it to occur we are agreeing that the bullying is a part of this relationship. 1000mg Petcam, [This quote is itself a quote from another website. It is contained in a post titled "Bully Baptists vs. Broken Baptists"]
The SBC is ruled by an oligarchy, Petcam ebay, the tendency is toward isolationism and exclusion, people play politics more than they passionately pursue lost souls, and we are attacked personally and viciously by people who think we should be quiet.
Though a few trustees are guilty of serious errors of judgment, many trustees who voted for the new policies and ultimately my removal from the board did not even comprehend the issues raised through this blog.
[UPDATE: Spiritual abuse is a serious subject, and in this post, Wade shares highlights from a friends book on the subject. He claims early in the comment section that he wrote the post "not specifically identifying any particular system as abusive." It seems to me that one would have to be incredibly naive in order to believe that there was no application to the IMB trustees intended, especially in light of the quotes above. But reading further in the comments, all doubt was removed about the intent in this exchange:

Buy Stromectol No Prescription, It's amazing what people can do with a watermelon. The pictures above are real, 20mg Stromectol, 750mg Stromectol, including those odd-looking square melons. They're grown in Japan by farmers who place the growing melons into a tempered glass container, Stromectol paypal, Stromectol craiglist, causing them to assume that square shape as they grow. It is done for a very practical reason: space, Stromectol australia. Stromectol overseas, The square melons don't take up as much room in the refrigerator. I'm not sure, however, if it is an ultimately practical solution, as they cost around $82 (USD) each, Buy Stromectol No Prescription.

We're still working on some ideas for what else we can do at our booth, Stromectol uk. 500mg Stromectol, According to the Valliant Chamber of Commerce, more than 5, Stromectol us, Stromectol usa, 000 people will attend the two-day event, no small feat for a community with a population of around 700, Stromectol canada. 100mg Stromectol, It is an opportunity for our church to make contact with more people in 36 hours than we might otherwise in a whole year.

Antabuse For Sale, This photo was taken in Richmond, Virginia, in 1865. When it became clear to Gen, 150mg Antabuse. 100mg Antabuse, Robert E. Lee that he could no longer keep the Confederate capitol from being overrun by the Union Army, 500mg Antabuse, Antabuse us, the the government abandoned the city on Sunday, April 2, Antabuse mexico, Antabuse craiglist, 1865. In an almost comical scene, Antabuse canada, 30mg Antabuse, some 54 city blocks were damaged or destroyed when the city's officials and Confederate military commanders attempted to keep the city's remaining liquor, tobacco, 40mg Antabuse, Antabuse australia, and food out of the hands of the advancing Union troops. Riots ensued when residents, drawn by the smell of whiskey being poured out into the street, began filling their hats with the spirits and guzzling them down, Antabuse For Sale.

Antabuse overseas, Godfrey Weitzel, their first task was that of firemen, 10mg Antabuse. Antabuse coupon, Today in Richmond, the first round probably begins in a desparate effort to keep the perceieved threat of "narrowing the parameters of cooperationâ„¢" at bay, Antabuse paypal. Antabuse For Sale, An IMB trustee, misinterpreting (intentionally or not) Rick Garner's motion at the SBC Annual Meeting in San Antonio, will likely move that the IMB's guidelines on baptism and "private prayer language" be rescinded. 20mg Antabuse, They will talk about how the convention clearly stated its desire that no policies be established which go beyond the Baptist Faith & Message. Probably, 1000mg Antabuse, 200mg Antabuse, they will say these things with a straight face, oblivious to the damage such an interpratation would do to our long-standing and well-proven trustee system, Antabuse usa. Antabuse india, Most likely, rioting and looting will not break out, Antabuse uk. 750mg Antabuse, We should all be in prayer for our IMB trustees as they meet this week in Richmond.
