Why I am Thankful for Older and Younger SBC Conservatives

B21 is grateful to post a guest blog from Pastor David Prince. Prince is the Pastor for Preaching and Vision at Ashland Avenue Baptist Church and is also an Assistant Professor for Christian Preaching at Southern Seminary. This piece was originally posted at his website Prince on Preaching and has been reposted with his permission.

“General William Tecumseh Sherman got it wrong. Peace is hell. In war people think about the country. In peace all they think about is themselves,” said war veteran and wartime president of the United States, Harry S. Truman. From 1979-2000 the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) fought a battle for the heart and soul of the world’s largest protestant denomination, which is commonly referred to as the conservative resurgence (or fundamentalist takeover from the liberal side of the conflict).

The battle for the Bible extended well beyond the borders of the SBC, but the fiercest battles raged within the denomination. I fear Truman’s observation is proving correct in the SBC. The denominational struggle in the SBC produced unity among a broad and diverse group of SBC theological conservatives. The conservative resurgence SBC leaders put biblical gospel fidelity and the future of the SBC ahead of personal preferences and differences. But over a decade after the symbolic final victory of the resurgence at the 2000 SBC annual meeting, the harmony among SBC conservatives seems to have lessened. At least from my vantage point, we conservatives seem far more willing to fight and nitpick each other.

1. Will you give us a brief introduction to who you are and what your passion in ministry is?

I am a follower of Jesus Christ, a husband to Jeana for 37 years, a father of two godly sons, a grandfather of six, a pastor for 37 years pastoring the same church 27 of those years, and a very passionate leader who wants to spend the rest of his life influencing and investing in others to win the world to Jesus Christ. Being raised in a small Texas church pastored by bi-vocational pastors, God saved me, called me, and sent me out to advance His gospel globally. I love the Lord, His gospel, His church, and the work of our Southern Baptist Convention, being most passionate to see the church revived, the nation awakened, and the Great Commission escalated to its rightful priority and accelerated to its completion in our generation.
