    WAKE FOREST, N.C. (BP) -- Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary President Danny Akin encouraged 169 new seminary graduates and 30 undergraduates Dec. 7 to trust in the steadfast promise that God will never abandon them.

    Akin highlighted two points in his commencement message from Hebrews 13:5. First, he said God is the one who makes this promise. Noting similar Old Testament promises from Deuteronomy 31:6,8 and Joshua 1:5, Akin explained that God has promised to never leave His children in the past nor will He leave His children in the present.

    "This is a truth that was real for Old Testament saints; it is a truth that was real for New Testament saints; and it is a truth that is real for you and me today right where we are," he said. Read More
