ANALYSIS: Even these Texans noted problems in the religion dept. years ago

DALLAS (BP)–Long ago, there were problems in how at least one Texas Baptist university — Baylor, which now has its own seminary — presents the Christian faith to its students.

Signers of evangelical-Catholic accords publicly urged by to repent

SOUTHLAKE, Texas (BP)–Deciding no longer to seek redress on “this very grievous matter” through private means, organizers of a conference critical of the controversial “Evangelicals and Catholics Together” documents took their protest a step further March 27 by issuing a “public call to repentance” to some 20 evangelical ECT signers.

Divergent views of salvation fuel Catholical-evangelical division

DALLAS (BP)–If they had left out theology, maybe they could have gotten somewhere.

Packer, issued “Evangelicals and Catholics Together: the Christian Mission in the Third Millennium” (ECT), opposition ensued from other evangelicals, such as […]

Fossils like ‘Little Foot’ fail to prove evolution, prof writes

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (BP)–When it was reported worldwide Dec. 9 that “Little Foot,” a “3-million-year-old [bipedal] hominid skeleton,” had been uncovered in South Africa, paleoanthropologists announced the almost-complete fossil would force the rewrite of human evolutionary history.

Patterson to Texas conservatives: God blesses witnessing churches

GARLAND, Texas (BP)–Being “inadequately grateful” is the only conceivable reason why Christians do not become soul-winning or witnessing people, said Paige Patterson, who will be nominated as Southern Baptist Convention president in June, in a keynote address at a statewide rally of the Southern Baptists of Texas April 24. The SBT, which held its rally […]

Law prof out to change strategy in creation-evolution debate

FORT WORTH, Texas (BP)–With Darwinian evolution soon to collapse under the weight of its own internal inconsistencies, creationists need to be unified in drawing attention to the bad science and the underlying bad philosophy within the evolution camp rather than debating theological differences among various creation alternatives, according to evolution critic Phillip Johnson. Johnson, a […]
