Why would a Baptist be heavily involved in an interfaith organization? Arenâ€™t we known for our unreserved advocacy and commitment to Christian conversion? Shouldnâ€™t our energies be focused on the advancement of gospel sharing? Is cooperation with other faiths a form of endorsement to their claims of spiritual legitimacy?
These are the sorts of questions I have received in various forms from others when encouraging their involvement in the Interfaith Alliance of the Bluegrass (TIABG), where I serve as corresponding secretary.
