The few lines dedicated here about restoration of the BGCT are the direct result of Marv Knox's editorial from last week. If the words he wrote had come from anyone else, they could be dismissed as jaded and cynical. Mr. Knox admits the BGCT cannot afford all its programs (employees?) and confesses this may be because of previous scandals, leading to mistrust. In addition, he professes to understand that many of the programs (employees?) are of low quality and tend to pull down the others. He insists that excellence in the programs and honesty in the administration will restore the convention to life.
Imagine, a well known baptist writer who acknowledges these obvious things; inefficiency hurts, mis-administration hurts worse and dishonesty destroys. Mr. Knox reviews the last decade as if to call these "the years of the locust."
If Mr. Knox keeps this up, he might someday get his own blog.
