Reconciliation forum plans
meeting early next year
___By Marv Knox
___Editor
___IRVING--The Reconciliation Forum will sponsor an open meeting early next year to allow Texas Baptists to discuss harmonious resolution of their differences, leaders of the group have decided.
___About 40 members of the forum, a 70-member multi-partisan group of the "reconciliation movement" within the Baptist General Convention of Texas, met at First Baptist Church of Irving in early October. They assessed the group's 18-month history and explored ways to continue its cause.

BF&M review may
focus on Scripture

___LOUISVILLE, Ky. (ABP)--As the committee appointed to review the Baptist Faith & Message statement prepares to begin its work, anticipation is growing that it will focus initially on the statement on Scripture.
___The Virginia layman who first asked that a review committee be appointed said in a recent interview that he hopes Article I will be altered to state more explicitly a belief in the inerrancy and infallibility of Scripture.
___The statement, which is considered a doctrinal guideline for the Southern Baptist Convention but not a creed, currently says the Bible is "the record of God's revelation of himself to man," is "a perfect treasure of divine inspiration" and has "truth without any mixture of error for its matter." It further states that "the criterion by which the Bible is to be interpreted is Jesus Christ."
___Calling the Bible "the record of God's revelation of himself to man" is "somewhat loose wording and is open to a variety of interpretations, some of which would be unfortunate," said T.C. Pinckney, editor of Virginia's conservative Baptist Banner newspaper and the author of a motion at this summer's SBC annual meeting calling for the review.

Layman wants all
Texans to see 'Jesus' film

___By Marv Knox
___Editor
___DALLAS--By next Easter, everybody in America should have the opportunity to see Jesus, Alabama layman Bob Cosby believes.
___Cosby already has done his share to make that vision a reality. He's contributed almost $3.5 million and three and one-half years to distributing "Jesus," the film biography of Christ, to every household in Alabama.
___The "Jesus" film, produced by Campus Crusade for Christ, has been translated into 500 languages. More than 1.5 billion people have seen the film worldwide, Cosby said.
___And half the viewers have made professions of faith in Christ, said Dustin Etheredge, national coordinator for Campus Crusade's "Jesus" video project.
___The "Jesus" film provides "a wonderful opportunity to share our faith with people who need to hear the gospel," noted Gary Cook, president of Dallas Baptist University, where Cosby and Etheredge spoke on a "barnstorming tour" to promote nationwide home-by-home distribution of the video.
