The Elephant Room is an event that clearly focuses on where we are headed as a convention. This upcoming event is not only being simulcast by an established SBC church that was the hub of the Conservative Resurgence, but it is also being simulcast by a NAMB funded church plant. Add to that the program personality of Dr. Jack Graham and one has a recipe that produces a full blown case of Evangelical Ecumenicism. Thus, in the following OP I want to reveal a simple formula that leads to this ecumenicism.
THE ELEPHANT ROOM I
The Elephant Room has been assessed and presented by various people within the SBC while having SBC pastors participate. While every pastor is free to participate with whomever one feels led by God, there is always a fine line of ecumenicism that most pastors have refused to cross. In Elephant Room I there were four Pastors that are affiliated with the SBC in a loose status at best. Dr. David Platt, Rev. Stephen Furtick, Rev. Perry Noble, and Rev. Matt Chandler are those that are affiliated with the SBC. If we are honest Dr. David Platt would be one that is the most connected but he is very loosely connected in his affiliation and support of the SBC.
