Former SBC President Promotes ‘Gospel Sermon’ of Openly Sodomite Son

“If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his own father, mother, wife, children, brothers, sisters, yes, and even his own life, he cannot be My disciple.” Luke 14:26

Pastor James Merrit, the former President of the Southern Baptist Convention has created a bit of buzz on social media after releasing a message encouraging his thousands of followers to listen to a sermon from his son, commending it as both “brilliant” and “faithful to the gospel.” In turn, his son took it for the ringing endorsement it was intended to be, retweeting it to his own 70k followers.

This would be controversial if not for the fact that his son is an unrepentant homosexual, preaching a message at a pro-LGBTQ church. Also, the sermon is terrible!

Jonathan Merritt is a journalist who has become a favorite of the Evangelical Intelligentsia who we’ve written about before and was last seen promoting “theistic evolution” and arguing that women can lead churches because they have cracked nipples when they breastfeed. Though we have known he was gay for over a decade, he only finally came out publicly a few months ago, much to the joy and celebration of the usual suspects of celebrity Christians.

As it pertains to this, the scripture is very clear in how we treat those who are proudly sexually immoral while claiming the name of Christ, irrespective of their familial ties.

“But actually, I wrote to you not to associate with any so-called brother if he is a sexually immoral person, or a greedy person, or an idolater, or is verbally abusive, or habitually drunk, or a swindler—not even to eat with such a person. For what business of mine is it to judge outsiders? Do you not judge those who are within the church? But those who are outside, God judges. Remove the evil person from among yourselves.” 1 Corinthians 5:9-11

Consequently, several discerning souls offered up some much-needed correction to a man who you’d think would absolutely know better, being the famed preacher and denominational leader that he is.

As far as the sermon, based on Mark 13, though the end is “ok’ it starts off terrible, with Merritt castigating Jesus and describing him as being rude, overreactive, grumpy, engaging in PR stunts, and calling him a “buzzkill” repeatedly.

Here is a brief clip. To set the scene, he just described bringing his grandma to New York on a vacation and putting her up in a hotel room on the 44th floor, as she’s in awe of the sights and sounds.
