(The Dissenter) In a decision that undoubtedly exposes the theological and moral lapses within certain corners of modern evangelicalism, JD Greear, the highly influential pastor of Summit Church in Raleigh, North Carolina, recently hosted Durham County District Attorney Satana Deberry for what was termed a “family discussion” on racial issues and faith. Let’s be clear: Greear’s decision to give a platform to Deberry, an openly lesbian and pro-abortion activist, is nothing short of a blasphemous betrayal of biblical Christianity and dereliction of his pastoral duties.
Greear, with a past tenure as the President of the Southern Baptist Convention, wields considerable influence not just over his local congregation, but over the broader American evangelical landscape. When someone of his stature makes a move like this, it should be universally condemned by the Church. Yet, instead, most Evangelicals celebrate such rubbish.
