This forum exists only to promote free discussion between Southern Baptists (and those interested in the SBC). There is strength in unity and in numbers. It is relatively easy for an individual to start a blog, but not so easy to engage the SBC community in discussion, since they must come to the blog in order to engage. One may “make the rounds” and comment on various popular Southern Baptist blogs, but the agenda is set by the blog authors, the topics are controlled and the comments are often restricted. But by gathering together at a single forum, where every reader is an author and the users set the agenda by posting their own topics, the SBC community can engage in discussion that is truly free and open!
