Southern Baptist Pastor Doubles Down on Threat to Leave SBC if Critical Race Theory is Denounced at Convention

A prominent Southern Baptist pastor is doubling down on his threats to leave the Southern Baptist Convention if Resolution 9 is rescinded, promising that he will jump ship and join other personalities like Charlie Dates, John Onwuchekwa, Beth Moore, and Russell Moore as people that have publicly parted ways with the embattled denomination.

At odds is the utility of CRT and intersectionality within the life of SBC congregants. At the last convention Resolution 9 snuck in unawares and was adopted before people knew much about it. Of particular concern was this troublesome section:

WHEREAS, Critical Race Theory and intersectionality alone are insufficient to diagnose and redress the root causes of the social ills that they identify, which result from sin, yet these analytical tools can aid in evaluating a variety of human experiences, and

Super gross.

Conservatives are hankering to take it out, but the progressives want to keep it in. It was the very presence of this threat of removal that saw Dwight McKissic, who by the way is a race-baiting Cultural Marxist who routinely terrorizes the SBC annual meeting with resolutions forcing messengers to vote for his policies or suffer looking politically incorrect in the press, drew a red line in the sand by saying 5 months ago:

Lest we think he stuttered, he reiterated it today in an op-ed in the ne’er-do-well SBC Voices, writing:

It takes great audacity, given the SBC’s history, to take such a bold step, to denounce the entirety of CRT—particularly with the National African American Fellowship of the SBC unanimously opposed to denouncing CRT in its entirety.

I am often asked how many Black churches may leave the SBC if Resolution 9 is rescinded. I honestly have no idea, and no desire to influence any to leave, which is one major reason why I am not going to attend the Nashville meeting. I do not want to be accused of leading churches away from the SBC.

But what I do know is—as for me and my house—if the major thesis and thrust of Resolution 9, passed by a majority in Birmingham 2019, is gutted or rescinded—we will exclusively align with the National Baptist Convention and the Baptist General Convention of Texas.

This, of course, would be a blessing. We pray these are not empty threats, but rather promises.

At this point, we have no reason to suppose that the SBC can pull itself out of this liberal pit without a mass exodus of all the unsavory types, but certainly having McKissic leaving out to help a little.

He is a pus-filled boil that should have lanced and drained from the armpit of the Southern Baptist Convention a long time ago. Instead, he was left to fester for years and years, infecting and spreading his particularly potent leaven. With him gone, the SBC has a chance, but we’re not holding our breath.

  1. The cucks at SBC Voices are virtue signaling and falling all over themselves kissing McKissic’s backside over his sinful attempt to manipulate the votes of the cowardly milquetoast SBC’ers. I don’t know if there is even a single person over there who is not a habitual liar. They are poison. Wolves in Sheep’s Clothing. And shamefully weak of discernment and character.

    And not terribly bright. I quote one Jack Matthews:
    ____________________
    “And if Southern Baptists are so fearful of the influence of ‘Marxism’ why are there no resolutions denouncing the former President’s close relationships and associations with Kim Jong Un or Vladimir Putin?”

    Behold the unassailable logic of this liberal “Christian.” Is this guy someone’s pastor? I certainly hope not.

  2. I’m sure people threatened to leave the convention back in the day when they were considering rescinding support for segregation, but those racist voices were ultimately ignored back then like they should be now as well. Segregation and CRT are both extremely divisive… by design.

  3. Amazing how some pastors think they are indispensable to a denomination and God. Maybe he should humble himself and check his attitude before making such statements. God may remove him in a way he won’t like

  4. Good for this pastor to stand with justice. We true evangelicals stand with 🇺🇸🇮🇱🏳️‍⚧️🏳️‍🌈

    1. Johnny, you really don’t have a life do you? Step out of your basement closet and into the real world..if possible.

    2. “Justice?” What’s just about a lie? If you had the slightest knowledge of Scripture and/or history, you’d denounce this heretical idiocy.
      Johnny, you remain just a godless troll who receives some kind of perverted joy in visiting Christian websites to insult real Christ-followers. I’m guessing you hate yourself.

  5. I attend a real evangelical church. We stand with Israel, the US military, President Biden, BLM, Tim Keller, The Gospel Coalition and LGBTQAP++. We take our vax and wear the mask. We love our neighbor, especially people’s of color.

    We stand against racists, fascists, transphobes and domestic terrorists. Can you say the same??

    1. Especially people’s of color. Let me ax you something…….what do you do with all the scriptures strongly condemning homosexuality? Don’t you believe ALL lives matter, as Christ does? Don’t you consider BLM burning down businesses and killing people “domestic terrorism”? What will you do when it’s proven conclusively that Biden is just Resident, and not President?

  7. Ezekiel is the anti CRT book of the bible. When God gets fed up and decides to lay waste to the region he explains why.

    Critical Race Theory in the church hinges on grouping people. It also says those people are not individuals and should repent of past sins they have not committed. Using critical race theory is no different than how Esau’s decendants acted in Ezekiel 35

    Ezekiel 14 talks about no one man’s righteousness can cover someone else. It says that if Noah,Job and Daniel were in the land when he struck it , that they could only save themselves with their righteousness no one else.
    Ezekiel 18:1-32 God tells them to quit saying he is punishing them for their parents sins. It goes into full detail how he holds those who have committed the infraction responsible and no one else
    Ezekiel 35:5 Because thou hast had a perpetual hatred, and hast shed the blood of the children of Israel by the force of the sword in the time of their calamity, in the time that their iniquity had an end:

    What about Mathew 7:1

    “Do not judge, or you will be judged. 2For with the same judgment you pronounce, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.…

    If because a person is white would Judge them and hold them responsible for another white person’s actions then you should be surprised when God looks at you and says. I know you did great and awesome things, but If I judge you how you Judge others then…. See those two black guys ? They were evil and unforgiving so since you look alike I must punish you for their sins also.

  8. Hi Protestia, can you add a thumbs up, down and a report button so we can start getting rid of bad commentators please

  9. How long has he been promising to leave? He won’t do it. The race hustlers in the SBC need the SBC in order to to have a social media foil, A great big group of conservatives to threaten and scold and forever attempt to shame. Otherwise no one is listening to them. Just being another National Black Church won’t matter enough. These guys need whitey to stay relevant.
