Mainstream Baptist Correspondence 

with

Paige Patterson, SBC President

In the September 1999 issue of the Mainstream Messenger we advised our readers that one of the chief dangers of Fundamentalism is Bible idolatry -- exalting the Bible to the status of a divine mediator between God and man.  

In that issue I quoted an article in the Atlanta Journal Constitution ("Southern Baptist leader calls for conservative stance" November 15, 1998)

In February 2000 Scott Shaver, Coordinator for Mainstream Louisiana Baptists, circulated a draft of the first issue of that organization's newsletter.  Shaver wrote an article based on our September 1999 article.  Shortly thereafter an aide to SBC President Paige Patterson called Shaver and inquired about the source of the statement attributed to Patterson.
