An unfortunate reality has become apparent in the nation’s largest Protestant denomination. A once-conservative network of autonomous Baptist churches has caved on almost every single distinctive of their faith. Today’s Southern Baptist Convention is no longer the bulwark of conservative Christianity and has now become yet another mainstream denomination to cave on its core principles in the name of political correctness. And this record-breaking turn of convictions in the SBC is largely due to the systemic Black Privilege that liberal African Americans now enjoy in the once-great denomination.
The Southern Baptist Convention was considered the last, best hope for conservative evangelicalism. Unlike the United Methodist, the United Church of Christ, the Episcopalians, the Presbyterian Church USA, and the American Baptist Convention, the SBC eschewed worldliness, liberalism, and compromise even in recent memory. But something has now changed.
Denominational leaders led primarily by Albert Mohler have turned a blind eye to the rampant liberalism that has overcome the institution that helps 45 thousand churches and 12 million church members cooperate for a Gospel-centered purpose. The cause for this turn of events is largely due to the carnal and sinful fear of denominational leadership being accused of politically incorrectness, and under the guise of “inclusivity” they have opened the door to virtually any subversive teacher who desires to rip the doctrinal guts out of the denomination…so long as they are black.
If an Anglo preacher helped bus rioters to race protests to assault police officers, they would be disfellowshipped out of the denomination in no time.
If an Anglo preacher espoused hyper-charismaticism of the Pentecostal variety, they would be disfellowshipped out of the denomination in no time.
If an Anglo preacher espoused support for a Democratic candidate whose chief policy proposal is the rip apart babies in their mother’s womb, they would be disfellowshipped out of the denomination in no time.
If an Anglo preacher advocated for female pastors – and if they called their own wife their “co-pastor,” they would be disfellowshipped out of the denomination in no time.
And all of these things have been done regularly by Dwight McKissic, a hateful, race-baiting, hyper-charismatic, pro-abortion charlatan who spends his time in the pulpit campaigning for Joe Biden.
McKissic is a godless unbeliever who would be far more at home in the Evangelical Lutheran Church Missouri Synod or the Unitarian-Universalist Church than in the Southern Baptist Convention. But as it turns out, McKissic has one (and only one) thing going for him…he’s black.
Because he’s black, he can assault the Sufficiency of Scripture with his charismaticism. Because he’s black, he can assault conservative Southern Baptist values like being pro-life. Because he’s black, he can assault Complementarianism and promote feminism. Because he’s black, Albert Mohler will pick up the phone and coddle him (how many other random Baptist pastors could expect Albert Mohler to answer the phone for their call?).
Being black in the Southern Baptist Convention allows Ron Burns (Thabiti Anyabwile), Eric Mason, Curtis Woods, Jarvis Williams, and Dwight McKissic to terrorize the denomination with their incessant vitue-signaling harassment that always drives the denomination to the left, not the right.
No Ango pastor could remain in good relationship with their local association, state convention, of national denomination and espouse the views and doctrinal compromises as these black men.
So instead of following Scripture and not judging someone by the color of their skin (Galatians 3:28), Southern Baptist leaders have bent over backwards to accommodate the liberalism of black Cominterns who have invade our churches to take it captive with their vain philosophies (Colossians 2:8).
Instead of rebuking those who teach falsely by marking and avoiding them, (Romans 16:17-18), the whitest-of-white SBC leaders (JD Greear, for example) have done everything possible to prove themselves a respecter of people (Acts 10:34) for no other reason than that they have darker skin.
In the Southern Baptist Convention, being black is the surest and quickest way to have your voice heard, to be nominated to boards, to be appointed as trustees, and to be nominated and elected as denominational leadership. Even Matt Chandler was blunt about this reality, promising that his church would happily hire a black man over a more-qualified white man. Almost every single Southern Baptist blog – like SBC Voices – has advocated vigorously for a denominational quota system that would appoint black people over white people, no matter their qualifications.
God hates favoritism (James 2:1-13) and God hates the Southern Baptist Convention’s bequeathing of Black Privilege. And the problem isn’t only that black candidates are clearly favored over their white counter-parts, it’s that – as Burns (Anywabile), McKissic, Wiliams, Strickland, and Mason all show – the Southern Baptist Convention is willing to scrape the very bottom of the barrel to find token negros to promote to the top.
In every single conceivable way, white people are equal with black people. There is one race, and in Christ, there is one chosen people for God’s possession. When the evangelical community forgets that – or buys into the Marxist Critical Theory and the concepts of White Guilt, White Privilege, or White Fragility – we will end up with the least qualified men possible to lead our institutions just because of the color of their skin.
Albert Mohler and the woke Social Justice gang, in the promotion of sub-quality and subversive leftist ideologues only because they are black men, are committing sins even worse than the Convention’s slave-holding founders, Boyce, Manly, and Broadus. At these forbears of our faith weren’t both racist and patronizing at the same time.
