David Rogers and David Miller's last two comments were interesting indeed.
While I especially appreciate the earnestness and in my experience apparent good will of David Rogers and hold no particular animus toward Miller--just find him little vacuous on too many subjects he appears to think he has mastered; there is something pretty sophomoric seems to me in this framework they espouse for autonomy and solidarity.
Nice sounding words but for me it rings hollow given all the good Baptists that have been arbitrarily excluded from the conversation in the last 50 years.
To cut to the chase, Bill Hull's new book on the differing approaches of Roy Honeycutt and Duke McCall to resolve a much greater conundrum they faced in the early 80's as they tried to navigate the unwieldly baptist ecclesiology of autonomy and cooperation I think provides a much more substantive framework than Rogers has laid out abvove, though he expresses his point pretty well.
I mean this with no arrogance or nothing of the sort; just an honest take on your batting about here.
The virtue in the grand notions of autonomy and cooperation in Baptist life was taken down considerable notches in the 80's, and there is something a little unwittingly simpleminded in your attempts here to act as if your chastity in this matter is intact.
Again I hope you appreciate my sincerity in this strong reprimand here.
