“We are concerned about the current road our Southern Baptist family is traveling. It is a road that is twisting what God’s Word is saying about things like human sexuality, biblical racial reconciliation, and socialistic justice.”
(Pulpit & Pen) Southern Baptist leaders most responsible for the liberal drift in the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) – chiefly Albert Mohler and Danny Akin, presidents of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary respectively – claim there is no liberal drift in the denomination. Meanwhile, both seminaries have sold out to the leftist ideologies of Critical Race Theory, Cultural Marxism, and progressive Social Justice.
This year’s pastors conference will feature numerous speakers who have female pastors in their church and will include at least one female pastor herself. Beth Moore, who has come out of the closet as a gay-friendly feminist, was recently lauded as a possible next president of the Convention by denominational heavy hitters (this year’s honor will go to Mohler instead). The SBC’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) has done everything possible to redefine “pro-life” to include socialist welfare programs, poverty eradication, gun control, and amnesty for illegal aliens, and its army of “research fellows” are doing everything possible to keep evangelicals from voting Republican. Meanwhile, the ERLC has been almost completely silent on pro-life legislation that zoomed through the legislatures in 2019. In fact, the ERLC told us not to preach about abortion from the pulpit. The ERLC and SBC president JD Greear have been using an Obama staffer and Democrat campaign staffer to lecture Southern Baptists against voting Republican. JD Greear also told us to use preferred gender pronouns.
