The second-largest Southern Baptist Church in the world has proudly announced that they have chosen to ordain their first three women pastors, ending 40 years of having only men as elders and repudiating their former convictions that the office of pastor is off limits to women. This violation and gross face-saving to culture is a clear violation of the scripture, as well as the Baptist Faith and Message 2000 they claim to believe and follow.
This sin isn’t particularly shocking coming from the 25,000-member, 14-campus Saddleback Church, who for decades now has been peddling poison and spiritual strychnine in the form of The Purpose Driven Life. Eager to reach the new generation, they’ve traded that little demoniac for the equally repulsive and heretical Critical Race Theory.
How else can you explain five months ago when the church announced that there were having a “Blacks Only worship service” where no white members were allowed in, so the “black fold” could have a “safe space” to “heal?” Or a few months after that where Warren blasted white Christians for having no discernment and not caring about black people.
With Bible in hand, Warren publicly commended and praised three women to the pulpit last night, all which are already functioning as “ministers” or “pastors” in the church, making this more a formal change in title and not role.
Cynthia Petty is the Children’s Minister, Liz Puffer is a Minister of Pastoral Care, and Katie Edwards has been the Junior High Pastor for a long time.
For years women have been doing everything the men have been doing in the church, and so Warren believes that now is the time to formalize it.
At the same time, we wonder if anyone from the SBC Executive Committee is going to speak up about this and commence the process of kicking them out and finding them not in cooperation with the Convention? Only time will tell.
