In A.J. Smith’s book of “The Making of the 1963 Baptist Faith and Message”, it looks to build up that Herschel H. Hobbs endeavored to maintain a strategic distance from a division inside the Southern Baptist group by modifying the Baptist Faith and Message so as to conciliate both the preservationist and liberal groups in that category. He does so by investigating the foundation of the contention prompting the update, examining the variables that are engaged with the discussion lastly clarifying the amendments that were made. Discussions were forced out among the Southern Baptist Convention as two Southern Baptist Theological Seminary educators tested the customary and traditionalist understandings of Scripture that were held by most SBC ministers. Educator Dale Moody embraced an ecumenical logic which seemed to challenge the long-held perspectives concerning the endless security of the formal agreement that was boundby contract. Educator Ralph Elliott distributed “The Message of Genesis” which, among different issues, denied the Mosaic creation and deciphered the initial eleven parts of Genesis asmetaphorical andnotliteral. This led to an uproar of the same number started to ask why these men who have held to such convictions were not compelled to submit to the BFM. Seeking for the truth was raised, should educators be given some dimension of scholarly opportunity or would it be advisable for them to be compelled to acknowledge the group’s announcement of confidence as a tightening limit?
