(OneNewsNow) A pastor is urging the Southern Baptist Convention to take a stand next month against the social justice movement and its liberal worldview.
Grady Arnold, pastor of Calvary Baptist Church in Cuero, Texas, has submitted a proposal to the SBC resolutions committee for the annual meeting, scheduled for June 12-13 in Dallas.
The proposals are given to the committee which can accept them and present them to the convention “messengers” that represent South Baptist congregations.
Arnold writes in the resolution that “social justice by definition is based on anti-biblical and destructive concepts of Marxist ideology.”
The pastor’s main concern with “social justice,” he says, is the idea of “privileges” that must be reapportioned and redistributed by the Left, an idea that Arnold likens to Marxist ideas of redistribution.
“It’s a very damning theology and ideology,” he warns, “and it’s very dangerous to bring it into the church.”
