Southern Baptists and Church Membership

I am thankful that a resolution on church membership was adopted at the SBC's annual meeting this week. Perhaps it could signal a change in our sloppy accounting. What will be needed however is for pastors like myself to cease worshipping at the feet of our idol: the crowd. Check out these helpful posts (here and here) by Tom Ascol who has been courageously pushing for such a resolution (along with corporate repentance) for at least three years.
