Every SBC convention brings about liberal drift. In 2017, they condemned the 50 person “alt right.” The next year, they joined the me too bandwagon. Last year, the Southern Baptist Convention yet again presented a politically charged, and well loaded, resolution on critical race theory (resolution 9).
No matter how the resolution is voted on, the Southern Baptists look stupid, foolish, and wrong. If they vote yes, they say to the world “we are abusers, rapists, etc.” The news will condemn them, bludgeon them over the head, and interest groups will use the resolution to push false ideologies, teachers, etc. to conform the church to the image of the world.
If convention votes no, they look like mongrels, in light of the recent news stories (of claims that are mostly one sided, unsubstantiated, and may also be falling apart).
We all know Russell Moore and Al Mohler are behind this effort. We also know the figurehead of biblical counseling in the SBC (Heath Lambert) has been offing as many people he disagrees with over “academic” reasons, of course.
If the convention, as a group, were smart, they would rebuke the author and sponsor of the resolution, institute them under church discipline (for condoning going around church discipline and using the media to humiliate the church).
That didn’t happen. Elites in the SBC, such as Mohler, Lambert, Moore, Greear, et al. have been successful in implementing a coup that’s been planned for years. They have successfully purged everyone who was involved in the movement that made the SBC take a conservative course decades ago. Now they are taking the SBC down the path to communism.
Let’s look at where we are today with the SBC:
- rebuking famous pastors who parted ways with them on the issue of social justice, and who are now suing civil authorities over Corona restrictions. All while supporting their own institutions(CHBC) who sue civil authorities over corona restrictions.
- Criticizing trump over trivial matters, while they never spoke out against Obama/democrats over similar behavior
- Silence on abortion
- Trend towards Acceptance of homosexuality.
