“How can a seminary, of any denomination, allow a plagiarist to speak in chapel to students threatened with expulsion if they plagiarize? Blows my mind!” @PastorLunsford
Mere weeks after Southern Baptist Theological Seminary president Al Mohler took to the Briefing and gave Ed Litton a paddlin’, explaining that plagiarism was “theft, that “we at Southern seminary take plagiarism of first-rank priority.” and that Litton was “precisely not what we are trying to teach or to hold up as an example here, ” another SBC seminary President apparently doesn’t feel the same way, with Litton being invited by Adam Greenway to speak at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas about ‘serious issues’- none which are his plagiarism.
Of course, there are a few people who know what’s up.
Though many have accused us of treating this as a mere exercise in equine beating, this is not the case. This will continue to adversely affect his presidency and bring reproach on the name of Christ until he comes clean and does more than denying all blame and culpability, with having real-world ramifications on what he even preaches at SWBTS.
Nathaniel Jolly notes that some of the things he can’t talk about are “Integrity, sermon writing, sermon delivery, pastoral faithfulness, study habits, living in the Word you preach, being filled with your own sermon, work ethic, righteous living, humility, and repentance.”
Adam Greenway is not doing his students by having him speak, but rather is lifting Litton up as one big middle finger to them, a living emblem of what it means to get a pass and have your sins covered up by virtue of being in a position of power.
A CALL TO ACTION
Enjoy our content? GREAT! Unfortunately, ad revenue for truth-telling websites has been severely hampered by consorship and de-platforming. This ministry isn't free to run, and finding people willing to support polemical theology is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.
So we have some great ways for you to EASILY support our work that will take less than 3 minutes of your time to do.
First, check our our page explaining this all at detail at https://supportpolemics.com
But in short, you can support us on Patreon and get exclusive rewards like the FULL non-truncated episodes of the bi-weely Polemics Report podcast ONLY available on your Patreon app. It's super easy to use. Get exclusive updates from JD. Get all that and support our work for only $5.95 a month. You'll also get a PAID subscription to 'The Insurgency' "banned news blasts" once a day for 50 news links to banned content you can't find in social media. For other patron tiers, you can join us live via zoom to interact with JD during the Bulldgomatic Bible study, get free theology books in the mail, and more.
Or, if you don't want to use Patreon and don't want the rewards, subscribe to 'The Insurgency' "banned news blasts" for free (three days a week) or $7 dollars a month (notice that's a dollar more than getting it through Patreon) or $70 dollars a year. Instead of you scouring the news, let our Gideon Knox News team do the news-hunting FOR YOU and it will save you time finding real news.
And finally, you can give a one time financial gift through Giving Fuel . It's also super-easy to set up and takes only minutes.
Because JD gets banned in Facebook a lot, you can also find him on Twitter here And if you're into politics, check out Montana Daily Gazette. If you just want his sermons, check out his SermonAudio feed
