We will not necessarily agree with every person at the Truth for a New Generation event. But the overall mission of making much of Jesus in our country is good and biblical (Philippians 1:12-18).

Then you'll have the facts, albeit interpreted your own way, but you would at least have some standing to discuss the event in a reasonable manner, instead of overlaying it with your bias, and drawing a completely and totally irrelevant, unrelated conclusion weighted down by your pseudo-intellectual cabal.
I doubt that Balmer, Worthen or Frady would bother with this. Pseudo-intellectual liberals tend to avoid Christian apologetics since they are not abstract, and they undergird and affirm more conservative interpretations of scripture.

Google and listen to her testimony online yesterday from NPR's Here and Now.
Sandy wrote:It's North Greenville University's conference, not FBC Spartanburg. Nothing you've posted has anything to do with either the conference itself, or FBC Spartanburg. Or North Greenville University for that matter.
I'll bet that Fox News doesn't even mention the conference, the church, the university, Pressler, Gowdy or Billy Graham in a single related news item.

Sandy wrote:Perhaps the political undertones were more subtle, but as I recall, the New Baptist Covenant beamed its satellite transmission from the conference it held at Second Ponce De Leon Baptist Church in Atlanta. I don't see much difference, since there were political influences at work there as well, couched in the content of the conference.
