What manner of man is this?

I know I am in the middle of a brief series on Reforming the Black Church, but this is just too scary pass up. Did you know he was here? Make sure you check out the video.

i'm confused. So does this mean that we've all been "Left Behind"? Or could it be that *historic* premillenialism is true? :-)

I like your emphasis on the individual. I am more encouraged thinking about reform in those terms, because I think you're correct when you say reforming the institutions is daunting. So, I'm all for a fubu Ligonier-like effort to reach folks somewhere between Sunday school and seminary with the truths of Reformed theology, and the maturing (I can't think of a better word) of many African American Christians to the point that the fubu (while actively developed in one sense) isn't required.

In addition to faith in an omnipotent and good God, one thing gives encourages me where the institutions are concerned. The recent history of SBC. If that behemoth can be recovered and reformed (small "r") and increasingly Reformed, then I'm hopeful even where predominantly Black institutions are concerned.

One question: What do you think is the entry strategy for a popular movement aimed at individual African American Christians?
