John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

J. D. Greear Elected Youngest Southern Baptist President in Decades

Christianity Today

The popular North Carolina megachurch pastor takes over amid significant membership declines and a public reckoning over abuse cases.

J. D. Greear stepped out of the 2016 election for president of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) in the third round of voting. But today, it only took one ballot for thousands of delegates to elect him to the helm.

 

Greear, a 45-year-old whose North Carolina megachurch has become a missions juggernaut, beat out former seminary head and SBC statesman Ken Hemphill by a margin of 69 percent to 31 percent at the 2018 annual meeting in Dallas, becoming the denomination’s youngest president in 37 years.

Several pastors and fellow leaders cheered his election, saying Greear’s victory signals a “new day in the SBC” and leaves them “optimistic about the future.”

 

[...]

 

He's seen as somewhat of a bridge-builder between generations—and between younger, Reformed and Calvinist leaders and “traditionalists” who believe in an Arminian view of salvation—having studied at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS) under one of the most historically prominent leaders in the denomination, Paige Patterson. (In recent weeks, as controversy surrounded Patterson—forcing him out of seminary leadership and off the annual meeting agenda—Greear has had to make his own statements condemning abuse and addressing the backlash against his mentor.)

I hope he builds some bridges as he and others are overtaking our seminaries and leadership positions. Now where doe that leave people who are not in his selected group. Unless he builds a bridge a split in the SBC seem close.

I agree!  Mega Church Pastors are generally  Bean Counters and in 2Thes 2 we find:

2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 New King James Version (NKJV)

The Great Apostasy

2 Now, brethren, concerning the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gathering together to Him, we ask you, 2 not to be soon shaken in mind or troubled, either by spirit or by word or by letter, as if from us, as though the day of [a]Christ had come. 3 Let no one deceive you by any means; for that Day will not come unless the falling away comes first, and the man of sin is revealed, the son of perdition,

 

I know, up close and personally, most will not agree but the truth is, the Church is in decline and tis period of decline is foretold by the One that sees the beginning and the end at the same time, YHWH.
