One grain may tip the scale. One man may make the difference between victory and defeat.

How would you like to REALLY rock the vote?

The Founders Blog is in the Final Four of a "best SBC blog" competition and executive director Tom Ascol needs your vote.

If you're not familiar with Founders Ministries, I encourage you to check out their scene as well.

(conferences - journal - resources)

The gist of it is a group within the SBC committed to its reform and committed to the historic theological roots of the SBC (i.e., Reformed theology).

There are some great resources on the site and some great folks associated with the ministry.

Tom is one of the nicer guys you'll ever meet and is also an Aggie, so he's got that going for him ... which is nice.

Still not convinced? Tom makes a pretty convincing case, complete with some serious "trash talk."

P.S. The polls will close around 8PM (Eastern) on Monday night.

Is this about reform, or about the "whoop" Aggie factor? ;)

After praying the Prayer of Jabez and a quick look at my WWJD? bracelet, I knew I didn't want Tom to get Left Behind.

As an Aggie, he deserves his best life now, but his reformed purpose driven life is really the key to his worth in the blogosphere.

Thanks Gunny. I feel the love all the way down here in southwest Florida.


What's the difference?!? ;-)

I'll have you know I voted for you, but only because Steve McCoy made the foolish campaign promise to make Joe Thorn grow his hair back. Well, actually, I voted for you before I read that promise, but if I still lived in the Chicagoland area, I would've used the local and established voting practices and given you at least my allotted 575 votes. :p

Good movie, but not the right answer as to the source of the quote/post title.

Okay, I (over)heard this one recently while the kids were watching the cartoon Mulan.

Well ... I didn't see this coming ... a RECOUNT was called for and received.

The votes have been recounted - and yes the final score has been overturned!

The total vote count was 666 [includes all 4 of Final Four]

Adjusted Final Score:
Reformissionary - 299
Founders - 295

Bad bull, Ags!
