Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary graduate accused white member of ‘generational sin’ because his ancestors might have owned slaves. The reason? The white member shared the same last name as a black church member.

SEBTS graduate promoted the welfare state and income redistribution at his Raleigh church, according to a shocking new video interview of the former church member.

A Southern Baptist pastor with ties to Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS) told a white church member that he was in “generational sin” because he shared the same last name with a black church member, according to shocking details in a new video interview with the former church member.

James High tells his story to Enemies Within The Church.

High said his reaction to the pastor’s stunning and ignorant allegation was shock.

High said he was “almost speechless to be honest.”

The video was released this morning and is a combination of infuriating and saddening. It is proof of the bitter fruits of Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality’s infiltration of the Southern Baptist Convention churches via Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary.

As the New York Times revealed in a shocking article, a professor at SEBTS routinely uses the teachings of black liberation theologian Dr. James Cone, but hides it from unsuspecting Southern Baptists. According to the liberal paper of record,

“It is significant that Mr. Strickland has brought a thinker like Dr. Cone into the heart of the conservative Southern Baptist Convention. Mr. Strickland spent years studying in majority-white evangelical schools, where he mastered the idiom of the Christian right. When he speaks to conservative white congregations, he is careful: ‘While Cone’s ideas are in play, I don’t mention him by name, because I don’t want to put unnecessary stumbling blocks in their way.’”

And of course, SEBTS has “given voice” to Malcolm X and had a speaker at the seminary who cited Rev. Jeremiah Wright—you know, the guy who in a sermon said G-d D… America—as a ministry hero.

Socialism & the Southern Baptist Convention

The church at the center of controversy was a plant in Raleigh and led by a pastor who taught that the welfare state and income redistribution were “a good thing.”

“The government role in terms of helping people financially was something, instead of the family and the church, should take a central role, a prominent role,” the former church member said in the video interview.

Is this the logical conclusion of Russell Moore demanding that Southern Baptists be pro-life from womb-to-the-tomb?

Another thing to note in this video is the reaction of a Southern Baptist pastor when confronted with a theological question by a church member.

In the video, High says he approached the pastor about complementarianism and what seemed to High as being the pastor’s lack of commitment to the practice. The pastor’s response was to immediately accuse High of the “generational sin” of having ancestors who owned slaves. (Something High claims was inaccurate and irrelevant.)

Is this how a Southern Baptist pastor should respond to theological questions from someone in the church?

It sounds abusive.

It illustrates that too many pastors today think they are somehow better and different than the people who sit in the pews. It smacks of an SBC Elitism that is destroying the Southern Baptist Convention.

So much for the priesthood of the believer.

We’ve entered a new time where there are one set of rules for the serfs sitting in the pews and another set of rules for the SBC Elites.

Sad times.
