SBC Pressured to Ban Confederate Flag. Anti-Southerner Russell Moore Supports

Russell Moore, heading the public policy arm of the SBC, is making waves and leading the charge, for all practical purposes, in having the SBC officially ban the display of the Confederate battle flag from public view. May he and his liberal, politically correct, historically ignorant ilk be defeated, without prejudice – and to the […]

Russell Moore Summoned to Vatican, Happily Wags Tail

Later this month, Russell Moore – President of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethic and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) – will be attending a conference at the Vatican meant to bolster a defense of “traditional marriage.” As wonderful as it is that most Southern Baptists and the Bishop of Rome (and self-pronounced “Vicar of Christ on […]

How the SBC is Leading the Church Astray

Scripture: Exodus 34:12-16. Watch yourself that you make no covenant with the inhabitants of the land into which you are going, or it will become a snare in your midst. But rather, you are to tear down their altars and smash their sacred pillars and cut down their Asherim —for you shall not worship any […]

Ten Reasons to Be An Historic Baptist

We’re the only ones who can trace our doctrine back through Scripture to the Apostles – and no, we are not ‘landmark’ Baptists. We were never part of the Protestant Reformation, because we were never a part of the Roman Catholic cult. Everyone else…was. We make the best green-bean casseroles. We don’t have the problem […]

Al Mohler Madness: Mingling with Mormons

From Ralph Ovadal: Dear Friends, I am providing here a link to an article which was posted at Deseret News October 21, 2013. It is a report of Dr. Albert Mohler’s relationship with LDS officials and his recent speaking engagement at the Mormon Brigham Young University. I believe in civil and religious liberty. I believe […]

Dr. Russell Moore. Busted.

From Peter Lumpkins: Russell Moore – Claims WSJ headline on his article ‘awfully misleading’ Russell Moore, Southern Baptists’ newest president at its commission on ethics and religious liberty, indicates on a C-Span interview that the Wall Street Journal got his interview totally backwards—“The headline has missing a word,” a word right before “pullback.” The word […]

These Are Representing Baptist Doctrine?

Trevin Wax over at TGC has a series entitled “Know Your Southern Baptists,” giving a short bio, some quotable quotes, etc., of each featured individual. So far, here’s the list: Henry Blackaby Fred Luter, Jr. Rick Warren Beth Moore Billy Graham Shai Linne David Platt Charles Stanley New calvinists, charismatics, heretics, women who preach and […]

Bleating Wolves & Ecumenicals: The Meaning of Evangelicals and Catholics Together

Part of the immediate problem [within the Church] is that many so-called evangelical churches and leaders spent much of the mid-twentieth century separating themselves from those who preached separation from unbelief. The neo-evangelicals had such a horror of separation that they had to separate from the separationists. Carl Henry was one of the leaders of […]

Answering SBC President, Fred Luter

SBC President, Fred Luter, has asked a couple of very important questions. I’d like to answer them. But first… A couple months ago, we received a large box of books at church from the North American Mission Board (NAMB). It was a box of New Testaments, entitled FindItHere, a publication produced through a partnership between […]

The Futility of Contextualizing the Gospel

There is only one way in which the Church of Jesus Christ expands. It is not by contextualizing the Gospel, or trying to make the Gospel relevant to modern culture. Such silliness is futile according to Scripture. There are a plethora of marketing plans, business models and other man-made innovations, many of which are promoted […]

Too Much Tebow

Well, I waited. I tried to ignore the whole thing, because really, I just didn’t care. But, the blogosphere became all ablaze with Tim Tebow and his cancellation to speak at First Baptist of Dallas. Then, Dr. Jeffress responded publically. If I were politically correct and a bootlicker, I would rave and heap praises on […]

New Calvinism, the Internet & the Fragmentation of the SBC

Wm. F. Harrell had some interesting things to say in a recent issue of the Baptist Banner. While I agree with much of the original article, I am pretty confident that when Harrell says ‘Calvinism’, he actually means new Calvinism. He discusses the Acts 29 network of ‘churches’ as well as Mark Driscoll, et. al., […]

What Hath the SBC Wrought?

The decline [the high level of spiritual toxicity in modern evangelicalism] over the last twenty years is a damning (literally) indictment of Church growth pragmatism as the primary methodology, contemporary worship as the primary liturgy, the conservative resurgence of the SBC as the primary perpetrator of these heretical practices, and, of course, of that which […]

Southern Baptists, Ed Young & The New Pelagianism

Join host Jerry Johnson for this episode of Against the World, as Jerry discusses that many of the professed Arminians in the Southern Baptist Convention are not really Arminian, but they are semi-Pelagian at best and on the verge of embracing a full blown Pelagianism.

Why Fred Luter Was Elected Leader of the SBC

They say … this will say a lot to the kingdom of heaven that here’s a convention that was started as a result of slavery and the past that we have, now an African American pastor is leading them. I just feel that with my personality and my commitment to the Word of God, that […]

Trevin Wax & What the SBC Will Be Teaching You All

Dave Miller recently interviewed Trevin Wax, who is the managing Editor for Lifeway’s newest intensive Bible study, titled, “The Gospel Project”. It is a Sunday School curriculum for children, youth and adults that according to Wax “should be available by June” of 2012. This is not good news. It is not good news because as […]

SBC’s Hunt for the Calvinist Boogeymen

Something is rotten in the state of Denmark Nashville. Wait. Let’s start over. Hamlet, Act 1, Scene 4, 87-91….and Action! Horatio: He waxes desperate with imagination. Marcellus: Let’s follow. ‘Tis not fit thus to obey him. Horatio: Have after. To what issue will this come? Marcellus: Something is rotten in the state of Denmark. Horatio: […]

Peter Lumpkins Eaten By A Mohler Bear

Peter Lumpkins is no stranger to controversy. That’s unfortunate, but when one spends so much effort in stirring up false accusations and generally causing unnecessary trouble with the likes of Dr. James White and Founders Ministries among others, well, you make your bed…. This week, Peter may have bitten off more than he could chew. […]
