FrontLine Jan/Feb 2012

The subject of the first issue of FrontLine for 2012 is a topic brought to the fore by blaring headlines in 2011. From churches to playing fields to colleges to schools to almost any place where children interact with adults, we hear horrific stories of terrible situations involving vulnerable children.

We can’t answer all the questions in a magazine, but we do want to raise the issue in the minds of our readers, especially about the notion of proactive protection of children. Far better to set policies that will help protect children than to deal with the troubling aftermath of abuse.

Much more needs to be said on this vital issue, but we hope that our magazine might stir God’s people to further research and wise and godly practices in their ministries.

We will be running a serialization of this issue of FrontLine here on Proclaim & Defend. A pdf copy of the serialized articles will be available as soon as serialization is complete.

Although Proclaim & Defend is the blog of the FBFI, the articles we post are not an expression of the views of the FBFI as a whole, they are the views of the author under whose name they are published. The FBFI speaks either through position statements by its board or through its president. Here at Proclaim & Defend, we publish articles as matters of interest or edification to the wider world of fundamentalist Baptists and any others who might be interested.
