Conservative Baptist Network launches amid Liberal rage on Social Media.
Pastor alleges new conservative group is about Love of Donald Trump and ‘Butt Hurt’ Paige Patterson fans.
Beth Moore tweets confusing tweet about group.
The Southern Baptist Woke Elite were furious today as grassroots conservatives announced they would launch a network of Baptists based on conservative principles. The pastor tweeted,
“This new baptist network thing is about love of Trump and being butt hurt about Paige Patterson. Don’t be fooled. ‘Inerrancy and sufficiency of scripture,’ then do video of right wing political talk that has nothing to do with scripture and an unbeliever could agree with.”

Love of Trump?
Dean Inserra is pastor of a Southern Baptist church in Tallahassee, Florida. He holds an MA from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary and a D.Min. from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
That’s a fine representative of Midwestern and Southern seminaries.
But, what else can you expect from the Woke Southern Baptist Elites?
They fear a grassroots movement of conservatives that will hold them accountable for the leftward drift led by Russell Moore and his enablers.
One criticism of the new group came from Southern Baptist preacher, err, Bible teacher Beth Moore. Moore took issue with the group’s stand for biblical inerrancy. She tweeted,
“I hear and understand what you are saying, Bart. But none of us obeys all that is said in our inerrant Scriptures. Many of us don’t discipline our children with rods, for instance. Most Baptist women I know don’t wear head coverings nor do their men raise holy hands.”

And this Bible Teacher is platformed by Lifeway.
So, why all the rage?
Grassroots conservatives launch network to retake the Southern Baptist Convention from liberals.
If conservatives hope to defeat the liberal Elites controlling the Southern Baptist Convention, then it will take a broad grassroots base. The Woke elite know it and fear it. So, when the pastors and laymen announced the creation of the Conservative Baptist Network.
Brad Jurkovich, pastor of First Baptist Church in Bossier City, La. and the spokesman for the Network, said in a statement released to the press, “We are concerned about the current road our Southern Baptist family is traveling. It is a road that is twisting what God’s Word is saying about things like human sexuality, biblical racial reconciliation and socialistic justice.”
Also at issue is proper political theology. What is the right way for a Christian to view patriotism? What is the right way for a Christian to participate in politics?
Jurkovich asked, “As Southern Baptists can we not love both Jesus and America? Is it no longer okay to be a pastor and a patriot?”
For the Conservative Baptist Network and Jurkovich, the answer is Yes! It is OK to be a pastor and a patriot.
That’s good news. It replaces the Hate America mentality of the Woke SBC Elite.
And that frightens the Ivory Tower Elites.
Their arrogance of the Ivory Tower SBC Elites led them into forcing Resolution 9—the infamous resolution approving the use of Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality as “Analytical Tools.” This sparked outrage among conservatives who reject Racial Identity Politics.
The Conservative Baptist Network launched because: “A significant number of Southern Baptists are concerned about the apparent emphasis on social justice, Critical Race Theory, Intersectionality, and the redefining of biblical gender roles. Many fear that these issues have received more attention than evangelism and spiritual renewal – the emphases that helped to make Southern Baptists the largest evangelical denomination in the nation.”
This is great news for conservatives.
And we know it generates fear among the Status Quo supporters. A reminder: Dr. Albert Mohler is the Status Quo candidate—a man who promotes and enables Liberal Russell Moore to remain at the ERLC. Conservatives should reject Mohler as SBC President in Orlando.
Also, get involved.
