Yes, They Do Exist!
April 17, 2014
It seems that before I joined Carl and Todd on the MoS podcast, they managed to offend (I know, shocking) the Confessing Baptists. Basically, in a discussion about ecclesiology, they neglected to mention the confessing Baptists altogether. And so Tom Chantry wrote a post that took issue with his seeming nonexistence. Since then, the guys have sent me on an investigative mission to get to the bottom of this whole invisible denomination. And so I risked my own safety while I was flying to Texas to speak at a women’s retreat, and arranged for the “wife” of a Confessing Baptist to pick me up, take me out to lunch, and conduct an interview for the “Confessing Baptist” podcast before I headed to my final retreat destination. I did manage to send the guys a quick email before my flight took off, documenting that if I went dark for too long, then they know that the Confessing Baptists found it fit to punish me for their sins against them. One way or another, I was going to get to the bottom of this mystery. I am writing to affirm that the Confessing Baptists do in fact exist, and one of them has a truly wonderful woman for a wife. Christina Jesuroga and I have so much in common, and I enjoyed every moment of our time together. And so maybe a bridge has been built, at least by us women, between the two confessing denominations and podcasts. Christina interviewed me on many questions concerning theology and women, beauty, modesty, parenting, aging, the church, and culture. She also asks me how I got myself into co-hosting with the likes of Carl Trueman and Todd Pruitt. If you haven’t already listened to the interview, or are not familiar with the Confessing Baptist podcast, I encourage you to take a listen here.
