Above you will find the link to the recent post by Christianity Today on this issue. Below you will find Wade’s response last month regarding the censure:
I have followed this whole debacle since the first blogging incedent occured with Wade and the IMB Trustee Board. I cannot say how upset and dis-heartened I am to find out about this most recent attempt to censure Pastor Burleson. As of today, I can tell you that you should continue to support the IMB if you currently do, but that you should seriously consider protesting the action of the trustee board by letter or phone call. If the trustee board continues to affect bad policies on the IMB and it’s missionaries, I’m not sure what should be done except to say that those trustees should be gagged and bagged and tossed out for the sake of God’s Kingdom. Ultimately it is up to the SBC messenger to deal with these problems at the yearly SBC meeting. I just don’t know if that is going to happen any time soon.
Pray for the IMB Board of Trustees and pray that they will stop this non-sense!
