I wanted to point any readers interested in the current controversy in the South Baptist Convention over “private prayer language” to this letter written by Dr. Allen McWhite.

I know Dr. McWhite and have read many of the correspondences he makes mention of in his letter. They are from the heart and seek only to defend Scripture, not himself.

Since he has offered to send his letters to IMB trustees to anyone who asks, I feel it is okay for me to post portions of the letters here (I will do so tomorrow).

The Baptist Courier, SC’s Baptist paper, has other articles dealing with the issue. Here are some others of interest:

South Carolina IMB trustees disagree on ‘private prayer language’ policy
IMB officers seek withdrawal of request to remove trustee

UPDATE: Unfortunately, I did not post the letters the following day. But I have posted portions of the letters now. You can read those here.
