If you haven’t heard already, Southwestern Baptist Seminary has been all over the news this week. What’s the issue? A nearly unanimous decision by the board of trustees to affirm the following statement:
“Southwestern will not knowingly endorse in any way, advertise, or commend the conclusions of the contemporary charismatic movement including ‘private prayer language.’ Neither will Southwestern knowingly employ professors or administrators who promote such practices.”
There are people who are weighing in on this subject all over the country, and I want to point you to a couple of resources to think through it:
- What is the press saying? Here is a compilation of press coverage
- What are good thinker/bloggers saying? Here is a good post by Denny Burk
- What should you think about the issue of tongues in general? Here is the latest issue of the Criswell Theological Review which focuses on this topic.
