Grand Opening of the SBC Open Forum!

Welcome to the SBC Open Forum. These days, discussion has become more important than ever to Southern Baptists, as controversies and theological differences abound. The internet, and especially the popularity of blogs, has greatly multiplied the avenues available for such discussion; but blog discussions tend to be fractured and are generally inadequate to a full, satisfying discussion. Having seen the limitations on discussions of real interest on many blogs, where the lengthy comments are frowned upon, and where the few determine the topics for the many, we decided it was time to do something different — to empower the readership to post articles, drive the discussions, and turn a blog into an open forum.

If you are a Southern Baptist, then this is your “unofficial” forum. Once you have either subscribed to this blog or made your first comment, upon approval of the moderator you will be added as a “author,” with the power to post articles and edit them as you see fit (but be sure to first read the guidelines in the “About” page). Forget everything you know about “blog etiquette” regarding such things as limiting the length of comments — no one here will tell you, “Go get your own blog.” This is a discussion forum. So, discuss…

    I should be added as a contributor. Or…
    what else do I need to do?

    Mike,

    I’ll have to put you in again, as it did not seem to work the first time. I’m sorry for the inconvenience. I’ll email you.

    I have edited this article to make the following change: participants will be accepted as “authors” and not merely “contributors.” These are WordPress names for roles: a contributor cannot post his own article immediately but must wait for approval of the administrator, and a contributor cannot edit his own articles; but an author can post without waiting for approval, and can edit his own articles as needed.

  6. We are now sbcopenforum.com

  7. Les says:

    Thanks for this Ken. I look forward to participating.

  8. Finally! You’re in, Mike! 🙂
