The Southern Baptist Convention and “gospel diversity”


J.D. Greear, President of the Southern Baptist Convention, calls for “gospel diversity”

Pulpit&Pen relates a sense of the insanity of the statement by the President of the Southern Baptist Convention.

Okay. Maybe we’re being trolled here. Surely Greear is trying to bait us by using the term “gospel diversity” in a recent message about racial healing. What in the σκύβαλον does that mean?

In case you’re wondering, σκύβαλον is the Biblical way to say crap.

Rubbish. Malarkey. Huey. Bunk. Hogwash. Twaddle. Bunkum. Drivel. Poppycock. Feces.

You get the point. What in the stinky world of manure is “Gospel Diversity?” It’s like a mean practical joke we’re not in on. I feel like Greear just said that to make polemics ministries angry and any second now he’s going to pop around the corner like a fratboy gesturing devil horns and his tongue sticking out and be like, “Lol. Punk’d you guys. Psyche!”

But alas, I think this is real. This is today’s Southern Baptist Convention. It’s a farce.

Here’s what President Skinny Jeans said…

Not only did JD Greear use the term “gospel diversity,” but some slackjaw dumbletwit at the Executive Committee thought it made enough sense to tweet it.

Is this what Paul warned us of?

In Galatians 1:8-9, Paul warned the church:

But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to what we have preached to you, he is to be accursed! As we have said before, so I say again now, if any man is preaching to you a gospel contrary to what you received, he is to be accursed!

Is this statement from the President of the Southern Baptist Convention the sure warning to get out of Dodge? Has God sent another set of angels to Sodom only to have the crowds beating at Lot’s gate and those of us inside to be presented with only one true choice?

I certainly hope not. However, by the fact that critical race theory has inched into the discussion of Southern Baptist circles, one has to wonder.

Additionally, since Russell Moore has long been within the leadership of Southern Baptists and has been instrumental in suggesting that Christians take a step back in regard to engagement against abortion, has made a number of Democrat-advancing proposals, and has pushed for acceptance of an LGBT conference — this all gives me pause.

  1. The first thing that came to mind (after Galatians 1:8-9) was “Really?”

    I know these guys likely went to seminary. Therefore, it would seem that their focus would be less on social justice tripe and more on sharing Christ and meeting needs.

  2. In all the times that I have helped at a mission, I have had a few thank me for the plate of food. I have had some pray with me for their problems. However, I have never had any of them say “There’s too many Whites serving” or “Too many Hispanics serving” or any other statement on the race of the servers.
