I am looking forward to seeing it. My wife read the book. I would be comfortable going with you Steve. You are buying? Are we going to have dinner? I usually don't kiss on the first date is that ok? Does anybody else find the name of the movie interesting? Straight = heterosexual; Brokeback a movie about two homosexual cowboys? Not very subtle. I'm probably crossing to many lines....

Wade, great article - is that going to be published somewhere please say that it is going to be published somewhere! Please send it to the Baptist Messenger here in OK! Please send it to Mohler! The SBC is in desperate need of more Pastor's like you with BALLS to say what needs to be said!

Joel, I think you are somewhat pretending that the "don't drink" side of this argument doesn't dominate and prevent discussion. I would hardly call steve bringing it up forcing the issue. The flant it guys are few and far between those who will fire you on the spot for even discussing the issue. I think we would all like change to happen slowly, but sometimes a guys gotta get his stuff together and post it on the door of the church to get change rolling.

JoJo (Joe and Joel), I think you guys have hit on a issue that is important, Baptist ecclesiology. Is it odd to anyone else that the SBC is supposed to be controlled from the bottom up? The people least qualified to make decisions of this nature are the ones that get to make these decisions, by least qualified I mean trained. Joe, by the way Mohler has serious ethical issues if he is unwillingly to represent Scripture faithfully for fear of losing his job. Even at my church where drinking is frowned on we stood up for the fact that Scripture does not forbid it and that drinking is in no way possible as sin.

D.R. - thank you for helping me "think through my actions" and for "helping me see what you were saying". Augustine and Spurgeon do not fall into the category of teetotalers. And I am still suspicious of you, but not so much because of the alcohol stuff, but because you are FREAKING OUT WITH THE CAPS LOCK BUTTON! I think you miss a big point, so let me help you see what I'm saying, 1 COR. 10:31 IS NOT ABOUT WHAT YOU DO OR DON'T DO IT IS ABOUT YOUR HEART! (man this cap locks things is fun!) I THINK JESUS SAID SOMETHING OF THE SAME AFFECT TO THE PHARISEES! It really has very little to do with what or what not is being consumned. There is no way to make a case for not consumning alcohol from the Bible without back dooring your way through a passage about food sacrificed to idols, so why not drop it. I truly can consumn whatever I want if my heart is right. And the person who wants to legislate what I consumn can kiss my butt.

I was in a class this week about popculture, Dr. Taylor said that advertising and commercials have become our stories and replaced the old stories. They tells what to dream. "Be all that you can be." "Just do it." They are the narratives that set the stage for life in a way a book, or story would have done in the past.

Great thread - good discussion at Joe's too. Funny how this is considered an unimportant issue, do all your posts get 67 comments? The biggest sin to me? Drinking mass marketed domestic beer - Bud, Coors, Miller ;) Tim, I'm sure you are a great guy sorry I got you so worked up. You don't have to talk about me behind my back:)

Dude, I don't know how Keith Cawley is, but I'm glad you listened to him. I've suggested that movie a couple times over at Emergingsbc/missonal/leaders/baptist/blog, as well at the Young Leaders mess over at Lifeway, and it has pretty much been ignored. We watched that movie with a group of our college students a couple of years ago, and the responses were mixed. I would really like to see some discussion here about it. Has anyone else watched it? What did you think of their conclusions?
