Open Letter to Voddie Baucham: Please Walk Away From Sing Conference
Dear Dr. Voddie Baucham,
I have enjoyed your ministry over the years, listened to countless sermons by you, and have supported you when feasible to do so. Your preaching and teaching have edified me and my family and your steadfast commitment to the truth of God’s word has been an encouragement to many.
I pre-ordered your book, Fault Lines, and I was one of the first to read it when it came out. I found it to be refreshing and encouraging, taking a hard, no compromise line against the influx of social justice and progressivism in the Evangelical Church. Rarely do we see high-ranking men take such a strong stand; we need more such men like you.
This is why I felt compelled to write to you openly regarding your association with the Sing! Global 2021 Conference. I understand that your position is that you will faithfully preach the gospel as you always do. Further, I understand that your presence at this conference is not necessarily a direct endorsement of others who are attending. However, it is a tacit endorsement. And many of the ones you will be sharing the stage with at this conference are those who hold to and advance the same ideology that you refer to your book, Fault Lines, as dangerous and at odds with biblical orthodoxy.
In your book, on page 67, you write, “The antiracist movement has many of the hallmarks of a cult, including staying close enough to the Bible to avoid immediate detection and hiding the fact that it has a new theology and a new glossary of terms that diverge ever-so-slightly from Christian orthodoxy.”
Let me be clear: most–not all–but most of the speakers attending this conference are…

Conference looks great!!!
Please don’t go if you’re from Protestia, division should be kept in bad “discernment” ministries
Baucham is yet another opportunist; as he was shilling his book on the (Pentecostal/Charismatic) heretic Eric Metastasized radio show.
1 Timothy 6:10 For the love of money is the root of all evil: which while some coveted after, they have erred from the faith, and pierced themselves through with many sorrows.
Baucham: I am a black man with a book against an obvious evil.
White Christians with a soy face: “OHHHHHH!!!! YOU ARE THE GREATST THEOLOGIAN WHO EVER LIVED!!!!”
Him needing to be told that attending this conference is not wise is a head-scratcher. Add to that his recent apology to leftist Christians regarding not-so-clear quotations in his book was so unnecessary.
I think Baucham wants to be liked, period.
It could be he wants to go to challenge all of the false teachers that have been invited. Seems odd how quick you all are throwing Voddie under the bus.
Has anyone ever done that? Nope. You are known by the company you keep. I don’t see this as “throwing Voddie under the bus.” I see it as words are cheap. Your actions tell the true story. If he gives his message (speech) and rebukes the others, then we will see. Do I think that will happen? Sadly, I don’t. Hopefully I’m wrong.
That’s what I think. I hold him to be a brother. Jesus ate and drank with sinners so I don’t see a problem here. I’d be surprised if he didn’t rebuke the other speakers for their positions, even if in subtle way. At least the people in attendance will hear from a biblically solid teacher.
Ye know nothing at all
