Inactive Church Members

Tom Ascol has a good blog today re: his resolution on integrity in church membership which he proposed at the SBC last year in Greensboro. The Resolutions Committee never brought the thing out of committee. One of the opponents of the resolution, Tommy French stated: it was a good thing to keep them [inactive members] on the role (sic) because they are good evangelism prospects... Is he serious?

I personally know of a church that found "members" on their roll that had been deceased for years. Highly unlikely they are prospects.
