You can edit Wikipedia

I was over reading Wikipedia and found their article on SBTS is still in "stub" form. I also found out that any user can edit most content on Wikipedia without even being registered. So I added a few details to their article on Southern. Dr. Dembski has a massive article.

Maybe some of us can spare a little time this Summer to make the internet a better place.

Will The Next Generation Treasure Christ? is a dialog on reforming children’s ministry and equipping parents - for the glory of Christ and the joy of our children.

Blog - smog. I'm talking about rewriting the internet encyclopedia! WWYD - what would Yoda do?

Thanks for posting this, sometimes it gets lonely in wiki land defending Christian material and it would be great to have more people over there. Also, theopedia is a wiki and very helpful for seminary students.

How dare you call SBTS a theological innovator? I quote: Southern Baptist Theological Seminary has been an innovator in theological education since its founding in 1859

I should hope we hold to the historic Gospel of Christ, once for all delivered to the saints, and not to innovation.

Okay, so I took your statement out of context. But still? Innovation + Theological education= bad.

It's also interesting to try to figure out who was responsible for the rise of liberalism at Southern. Judging by the timeline, it must have been her longest sitting president, McCall, who served from 1951 to 1982, for a total of thirty one years!

innovator - that was already there. All I added was the link to the META blog and the listing of presidents. I think it actually comes from southern's website.

Brush up on the history of Southern before you go delete "innovator". Boyce's inaugural lecture at Furman, "Three Changes in Theological Institutions" was revolutionary. Broadus called it "epoch-making in the history of theological education of Southern Baptists".

The three changes were:
openness
a seminary for everyone called regardless of prior academic experience

excellence
a course of instruction with first rate standards

confessional integrity
an abstract of principles which every professor would profess and teach in accordance with
