It's a fact that Southern Baptists always have something they're at odds about. This year it's alcohol, private prayer languages and Calvinism. In the past it's been about the CBF, BWA, BGCT, etc and ad nauseum. I predict that nothing will change and we'll always be fighting about something.

Enter my new bird dog puppy. She's a Llewellin Setter and more pup than I've ever owned before and she worships the ground I walk on.

Now that's a refreshing attitude for a Southern Baptist Preacher. Usually I have several somebodies who want me fired and a lot of folks who always think I'm overpaid and underworked. Not "Patch." She's never had an ill thought toward me unless it's in the early morning when I'm a little slow on the food delivery.

Gee, but I wish I had a congregation full of attitudes like Patch's.

Wouldn't it be refreshing if everyone was as accepting of other Southern Baptists as puppies are of their masters?

Come to think of it - Wouldn't it be refreshing if we Baptists were just as accepting of other Baptists as the Father is of us?

I am a PCA member and I am amazed to find that I like Baptists better than some Baptists like Baptists. I also like cats better than dogs. But dogs are second.
