Why I, as a Non-Calvinist, Support Tom Ascol for SBC President

By Ronnie W. Rogers / June 17, 2022 / Comments Off on Why I, as a Non-Calvinist, Support Tom Ascol for SBC President

As many know, I am adamantly against Calvinism’s soteriology and have written numerous articles and three books laying out my reasons.

By Ronnie W. Rogers / June 18, 2019 / Comments Off on Resolution 9 on Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality: Some Suggestions

The 2019 SBC annual meeting met on June 11-12. The messengers adopted several resolutions, one of which was a resolution on Critical Race Theory (CR) and Intersectionality (IN).[1] While I appreciate the Resolutions Committee seeking to speak to current issues from a biblical perspective, I think this resolution lacked due consideration.

The Right and Wrong of the Houston Chronicle’s Articles on “Abuse of Faith”

Everyone by now is aware of the child abuse that not only went on in the Catholic Church but was actually covered up by the leaders of the Catholic Church. That immorality and abuses will happen in the church is inevitable since the church, like any other organization, is filled with people who are sinners.…
