Meet Jim Richards...

Dr. Jim Richards serves as founding Executive Director of the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention. A native of Louisiana, Richards earned the M.Div. degree from New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and the D.Min. degree from Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary. He has been honored as a Distinguished Alumnus by both seminaries. Before coming to SBTC, Richards served for 21 years as a pastor in Louisiana, and then as a Director of Missions in Bentonville, Arkansas. He is a popular preacher, and has helped guide SBTC to unprecedented success. The SBTC will be hosting the Southern Baptist Convention in San Antonio this month.

From the San Antonio News:

It's not about personalities and individuals. It's about organizations," [Jim] Richards said. "The SBTC stands ready to dialogue with any group willing to affirm our faith statement."

This is supreme arrogance (if true). It's amazing that we (hopefully anyways) invite people to come to Christ as they are, but we can't invite OTHER CHRISTIANS to come as they are to work together to build the Kingdom.
