By this point, almost everyone knows that Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, free from the conservatism of Paige Patterson and newly staffed by an army of Social Justice drones from Albert Mohler’s Southern Seminary, fired Dr. Robert Lopez because he kept preaching that God would change the desires of homosexuals if they’re born again.
Dr. Lopez is one of those who God washed, saved, and sanctified from homosexuality (1 Corinthians 6:11), so he was just telling his own testimony. However, the influence of progressivism is pervasive in the SBC thanks to The Gospel Coalition tentacles reaching places like the six seminaries and the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC). Their message is clear; homosexual desire is not a sin unless acted upon and a homosexual cannot expect to be set free from their desires.
After threatening Lopez and trying to intimidate him into silence, Lopez was fired. Southwestern denied it had anything to do with his position on homosexuality and claimed in a press release they had no problem with his perspective. Then, Dr. Lopez released audio of his personnel meetings, email correspondence, and multiple witnesses that verify beyond a doubt that he was fired for his position on Same-Sex Attraction and under pressure from the ERLC.
