Whew! So we ask ourselves ... is the SBC currently populated by men of God in the pulpit or preacher boys? What do you reckon the proportion would be compared to past generations of pulpit leadership? The destiny of an individual church is charted by one or the other. May God turn preacher boys into men of God! A lost world is waiting for them to grow up.

yeah, Max... and God is not finished with us yet, so I suppose we are going to see some preacher boys rise up...in His time. in His time.

"we are going to see some preacher boys rise up...in His time"

John the Baptist was in the wilderness waiting for his time to come forth ... Jesus spent wilderness time before his earthly ministry ... Moses was prepared in the wilderness ... Paul spent 3 years in the wilderness after his Damascus Road encounter with Jesus ... the prophets were refined in the wilderness, etc. Praise God for the wilderness and not the seminary!! I have to trust that the Lord is preparing sons in a desert place right now to come forth in His time ... and they won't look like anything in our pulpits now! Lord, let it be!!

Max, I could not agree with you more. We do have some who are faithful right now. And it only takes a spark to get a fire going. We have to focus on that which the LORD is doing, and I find it refreshing to hear of people like your daughter and her hubby and others whom I know personally who are faithful to His call on their lives. The others will not produce anyway. A thistle does not bring forth wheat. And the LORD said to let the tares grow up among us. We shall see what He will do...and until then we must "16 Rejoice always! Pray constantly. Give thanks in everything, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus." 2 Thessalonians 5:16-18 I am rejoicing in the Lord, and praying constantly for others to do the same and also giving thanks for soul-burdened men and women like yourself who are following God's will in their lives...and are also praying constantly as I. I am not alone and that is a good feeling. selahV
