From Triumph to Trivia

On the back of Todd's post yesterday, about Steven Furtick and the Southern Baptist Convention, there comes this from his friend, Perry Noble

In his essay on the Brumaire coup, Karl Marx quotes Hegel as saying that history repeats itself, the first time as tragedy, the second time as farce.  I wonder if the heroic battles fought by a previous generation of SBC leaders over biblical authority will now be squandered by the current generation. They made the ecclesiastical streets safe for... silliness? Perhaps they won the battle for the Bible only to lose the war over trivia.  We have most certainly moved from tragedy to farce.  The question is: Will anyone do anything about it?
