First Baptist Church Naples
A Straight and Sharp Arrow
During my growing up years, my dad and I were memberso the “Black Feather Bow Club” in Arizona, which includedall ages o archers. But I sometimes got in trouble borrowingmy dad’s heavy-pound Ben Pearson bow. I once shot hisaluminum target arrows through the target on bales o hay in our backyard into a neighbor’s pool! I learned thetechnique o stringing the bow, as well as the necessity o unstringing it. I the latter is not done daily, then ultimately the bow withlose its tautness and power. This is my last week o vacation in Coloradospent “unstringing my bow.I am very grateul and will return next weekendhopeully shooting straight and true rom Psalm 37 – “Being In the Lord inthe In-Between Times.Our guest preacher this weekend is no stranger to Naples or to hunting.

, the renowned President o Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, has spoken here beore and has been my riend,hero, and encourager or many years. A lover o big game hunting, hisoce is lled with taxidermied trophies rom various hunts in Arica. Hisbiblical position and sense o humor are seen in a stufed monkey wearingglasses and reading Darwin’s treatise and evolution, Origin o the Species.Dr. Patterson has shot at close range an attacking lion, but he has beeneven more efective in shooting the arrows o truth in a straight and strongmanner or years.I have been associated with Dr. Patterson during his presidency o Criswell College, and I also served on the Board when he was Presidento Southeastern Baptist Seminary. When history records the greatmovement o God in the last part o the 20th Century and in these yearso the 21st Century, his role will be recognized as the primary visionaryand theological architect o the conservative resurgence o the SouthernBaptist Convention. As someone noted, “What drits to the let must bedriven to the right.” Only a man o his courage and intellect could havedone that.Dr. Patterson is also a highly respected New Testament scholar, missionarystatesman, and preacher.
