Dr. Ed Stetzer releases some sobering statistics, and in my estimation a painfully accurate interpretation of those numbers. We in the SBC have crowed over our numbers far too long. Many of us have known that membership and baptism statistics were hardly a reflection of the true health of the SBC. Now those numbers we have been so proud of are trending downward. Let us hope that this leads to some sober reflection within our denomination.
