Anyone (I'm referring to the six or seven folks who read my blog) mind an excursion away from SBC annual meeting news?
I've never met David Montoya who, through his blog, the oddly named Spiritual Samurai might be said to have hastened the decline of the grand Baptist General Convention of Texas because of his incessant blogging on what he saw was waste of perfectly good Texas mission dollars. Turned out that his tiny voice was effective when louder voices were silent on the matter.
That was then. What's up now?
Well, I don't quite follow all he is trying to say about the BGCT wasting more mission dollars, this time hunger funds, but he is getting attention.
He may be right. He may be wrong. He has usually been right and occasionally wrong but his reputation as an ornery, stubborn little Baptist bulldog does cause him to get fed some quantity of inside information. He now claims that the BGCT administration is checking phone logs in an attempt to sniff out a mole from among BGCT employees.
"Paranoia!" critics shout.
Maybe so, but my money would be on Montoya.
Rather than spending more mission dollars rooting around for moles, what would be wrong with giving Montoya or any other Texas Baptist whatever information they might want to have about how the BGCT spends their money?
It's a radical idea, I realize, but that would be one sure way to stop leaks.
