MY ORIGINAL POST ON THE ABOVE TITLE WAS EATEN, SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE. It took me 5 hours to prepare this post so I don't think I will bother rewriting it in its entirety. Though I had more links for you to peruse, I have but one that is most necessary in understanding its origin and claim.
I encountered an interesting post by Trey Medley, a Phd. Student in England. He challenges a few critics, as well as the Gospel Coalition's assertions, of the Traditional Statement recently published at SBC Today. I do hope you take time to read Trey's well-written, easily understood, article entitled My Take On the Statement of the Traditional Southern Baptist Understanding of God's Plan of Salvation.
