1.) “If some people in this room were as passionate about the gospel as they are about (opposing) critical race theory, we would win this world to Christ.”
Former Southern Baptist Convention president
“If some people in this room were as passionate about the gospel as they are about (opposing) Caesar worship, we would win this world to Christ,” said nobody in the early Church.
I wonder if James would agree with this,
“If some people at this council were as passionate about the gospel as they are about (opposing) the idea of Christ as a created being, we would win this world to Christ.”
“If some people in this debate were as passionate about the gospel as they are about (opposing) freewill and the innate goodness of man, we would win this world to Christ.”
If James wasn’t so stupid he’d know the meaning of a false dichotomy… he’d know that someone could be passionate about opposing CRT because they are so passionate about winning the world to Christ. If James wasn’t so stupid he’d realize that the World can’t be won to Christ by those holding to CRT and so we need to be passionate about stopping CRT in the Church.
2.) Pastor Bryan Kent of Compass Church in Mason, Michigan, commended outgoing Sothern Baptist President Greear’s remarks, saying that if critical race theory “has an echo of truth among our brothers and sisters of color… we should not be in such a rush to condemn.”
So all it takes to not be in a rush to condemn obvious in your face heresy (CRT) is minorities hearing an echo of “truth.” What if I said I heard an “echo of truth,” in polygamy since it is in the Bible? Would Pastor Bryan Kent decide not to be in such a rush to condemn? What if I said I heard an “echo of truth” in owning slaves since it is in the Bible? Would Pastor Bryan Kent decide not to be in a rush to condemn?
Or is it the case for Pastor Bryan Kent that one has to be a minority before they can hear echoes of truth that mean that we decide not to be in a rush to condemn?
3.) During its annual meeting in Nashville, the Southern Baptist Convention approved a measure rejecting “any theory or worldview that finds the ultimate identity of human beings in ethnicity or in any other group dynamic.”
Any other group dynamic?
The promise is to you and to your children…. Acts 2:38
There goes covenant theology out the window. Well, I guess we shouldn’t be surprised that Baptists don’t desire to find their ultimate identity in Christ as their families rest in Christ.
4.) File Under: The New SBC President’s explanation of the Trinity.
“God is the creator and ruler of the universe. He has eternally existed in three persons: the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. These three are co-equal parts of one God.”
5.) File under: I need to start a blog called “The Stupid Things people say.”
“There are a lot of conservatives with a Biblical Worldview that are going to go to hell because they don’t know Jesus.”
Ummm … except it isn’t possible to have a Biblical Worldview if you don’t know Jesus. This is idiocy at its finest.
