“The conference is designed to garner sympathy and effect a paradigm shift towards egalitarianism in the Southern Baptist Convention. They will still call it complementarianism, but it will be redefined to look nothing like what the Bible teaches.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) The Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) is really nothing more than a pandering bridge-builder between the professing Church and the Pagan culture. At every opportunity, the ERLC seeks some kind of common ground — friendship, if you will — between the world and Christianity. Essentially, the ERLC is on a never-ending image campaign that attempts to appease the world by speaking nuance into the consciences of a world in rebellion to God.
This year, the ERLC was scheduled to hold a gospel conference. Its theme was “Gospel Courage: Truth and Justice in a Divided World.” Seems like a noble topic for the Church, especially since the Great Commission of the Church is to go out into the world and make disciples. Yet, the ERLC — like any progressive outfit that never seeks to let a good crisis go to waste — has dropped the gospel-themed conference in favor of a #metoo cry-party.
