Nathan Finn on Spiritual and Structural Problems in the SBC

Nathan Finn writes an excellent piece at Between the Times regarding the two natures of the problems in the SBC.  I have been told in person and elsewhere via conference calls by denominational employees that the problem is spiritual, not structural, and all that we need to do is keep doing what we do while hoping for revival.  I’m grateful that the GCR Task Force has not bought into this line of thinking and is attempting to make some significant reform.

Here’s an excerpt from Finn’s article:

The structural and the spiritual coincide. To argue otherwise is to perpetuate a false dichotomy. Structure to varying degrees reflects spiritual concerns, and at times spiritual issues are exacerbated by structural shortcomings. The SBC needs a renewal in both areas.

Be sure to read the whole thing.
