On November 30, 2020, SBC Seminary presidents affirmed that critical race theory (CRT) is incompatible with the Baptist Faith and Message.  While I appreciate their declaration, the message has been inconsistent, particularly from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (SBTS) where Dr. Moler serves as president, and South Eastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS) where Danny Akin serves as president. I mention only two of my concerns in this article. First, Jarvis Williams, a professor at SBTS, and Curtis A. Woods, a former professor at SBTS, endorse critical race theory. Continue reading →
Dr. Albert Mohler is the president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Some of us who have agreed with and supported Dr. Mohler for many years now see an unsettling inconsistency in some of his positions. One is regarding Critical Race Theory (See my book A Corruption of Consequence, chapters 9 and 10), and the other relates to homosexuality. This article addresses what I believe is his dangerous accommodation to homosexuality. Let me first and clearly say that I believe Dr. Mohler emphatically regards homosexuality as a sin. I have seen this expressed in his writings, and I hear this when he speaks as well. Continue reading →
On March 14, I preached two messages with the same title as my book, “A Corruption of Consequence. I explained such things as how Critical Race Theory and Martin Luther King are in conflict, the fallacy of equal outcomes, how the views of leading neo-Marxists Max Horkheimer, Antonio Gramsci, and Herbert Marcuse, are driving the social justice movement, and why the left is not condemned or censored like the right. I believe it will help you make sense out of what is going on. Here is the link.
Dr. JD Greear serves as pastor of The Summit Church in Durham, North Carolina, and as president of the Southern Baptist Convention. Greear promotes the use of transgender preferred pronouns. He said, “When we apply Paul’s linguistic approach to the pronouns we use about transgender people, I believe we arrive at a posture of pronoun hospitality: a willingness to accommodate the pronouns of our transgender neighbors regardless of our own views about the Christian ethics of gender identity.” He based this on Acts 17.
On January 19, 2019, he preached a sermon entitled How The Fall Affects Us. While he did speak about homosexuality in a manner that leaves him able to defend himself against charges of not believing homosexuality is sin, we can say he worked arduously, both directly and indirectly, at minimizing homosexuality’s sinfulness as depicted in Scripture. (See my blog, Subjective Transgenderism Contradicts Scripture.) Continue reading →
I have written this very readable book to help Christians and pastors understand cultural Marxism and its influence on social justice, critical race theory, intersectionality, and to understand the clear and present danger to the gospel, Christianity, and America. Because, Marxian social justice poses an imminent and grave threat to every American, including our children and grandchildren. It will take an informed and courageous church to stand against cultural Marxism’s advance under the guise of social justice.
Why read this book? Because there is a grave danger that lurks behind the seemingly friendly term of social justice. Contemporary social justice endangers our country, families, and, most importantly, the gospel of Jesus Christ. Social justice is, in many ways, a euphemism for cultural Marxism. What has made its threat even more treacherous is that cultural Marxism ideas have made their way into conservative evangelicalism and the Southern Baptist Convention. If Christians believe that social justice is the same as God’s impartial justice, they will unintentionally facilitate godless Marxism. They will be instruments of corrupting the gospel of Jesus Christ. This book provides a biblical critique and understanding of social justice, which prepares Christians to stand firm against the culture and for God’s impartial justice, truth, love, and the gospel.

Dr. Russell Moore is the head of the Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission. Moore’s accommodation of the homosexual community is related to reparative therapy (RT). RT is a term for various therapies or Christian approaches that provide help to those with varying degrees of involvement in homosexuality so they can contentedly live as a heterosexual for those who desire to do so. Dr. Nicolosi is the originator of RT. He began his work in 1981. He said RT “was aimed at people who do not identify with their same-sex attractions.” It was designed only for those who desire change. Both Nicolosi’s work and Christian ministry approaches believe change is possible, but rely heavily upon the desire of the individual for success. The same is true of evangelism. While change is available, the person’s desire is essential. Continue reading →
This is the second article in this series on The Homosexual Compromise. You can see the first article on Revoice here.
Beth Moore is a well-known Bible teacher. She wrote her position on homosexuality in her book Praying God’s Word, which she later became convinced went beyond the Scripture. When the book was reprinted, she deleted nearly six pages of material, amounting to half the chapter, including the following words from page 279. Continue reading →
This is the first article in this series on The Homosexual Compromise.
Some of our leaders and well-known Bible teachers in the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) display an excessive, and I believe, unbiblical willingness to accommodate the homosexual agenda. This unwise adjustment in their language and position furthers the quest of homosexuals, which is ultimately to be accepted into conservative Christianity. Their significant inroads into cultural normalcy and notable acceptance within Christianity have been gained by sheer tenacity, as they press toward their goals incrementally. I think some of our leaders are either wittingly or unwittingly facilitating the full acceptance of homosexuality. I do need to say, at the time I am writing this article, those I mention do in various places either emphatically proclaim homosexuality as a sin or maintain that sexual relations are only permissible in a heterosexual marriage. Continue reading →
Our culture has descended from recognizing the biblical understanding of man, woman, and marriage (Gen 1:26–28; 2:18–25; Matt 19:4). We have seen for many years the advancement of the normalization of homosexuality. Then on June 26, 2015, the Supreme Court ruled in a 5–4 decision that all states are required to grant and recognize same-sex marriages. Continue reading →
My most recent book “Does God Love All or Some?” includes thirty-four chapters that address Calvinist arguments such as libertarian freedom undermines God’s sovereignty, rejecting Calvinism requires a weak view of depravity, what about those who never hear the gospel? I show how we know God’s salvific love is Extensive, extends to every person, rather than limited to Calvinism’s exclusive group, the unconditionally elected. I establish how we know God gives every person an opportunity to be saved, and how human acts like prayer really can affect a person’s salvation, something which true Calvinism precludes.
