Southern Baptist Elites are worried about the new Conservative Baptist Network. Should you? Here’s what you need to know about this new group of Conservative Baptists.
1. The Conservative Baptist Network believes patriotism is a good thing for a Christian.
Unlike many hip Southern Baptist leaders who despise President Donald Trump and recoil at the American flag, the Conservative Baptist Network believes the Bible encourages patriotism. They are right. The Bible encourages the Christian to a responsible devotion to his state. The Apostles Peter and Paul respectively in their epistles commanded Christians to obedience, subjection, honor and duty to the government.
Of course this must never conflict with one’s duty to God; however, the Christian must recognize the state is part of God’s divine plan. He created government for man’s good. Failure to render it duty is to rebel against God.
2. The Conservative Baptist Network rejects Identity Politics—something embraced by Southern Baptist Elites.
No? You didn’t know that?
Well, you should. Al Mohler is running for SBC President. He expects to be crowned in Orlando.
However, if you are a Conservative Southern Baptist, then you should ask if Racial Identity Politics is a good thing in the church. And you should be asking why Mohler’s professors were intimately involved in the crafting of the infamous Resolution 9—the action where the Southern Baptist Convention endorsed the use of Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality as Analytical Tools.
Fortunately, the Conservative Baptist Network rejects these Analytical Tools of division.
The Conservative Baptist Network said in a statement on Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality, “However, they are far more than just tools; they are ideologies that have their roots in Neo-Marxist, postmodern worldviews. While the committee may have meant well in presenting the resolution, many messengers left Birmingham confused about Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality, and others left feeling that they had been misled or deceived.”
Unlike Mohler who is playing all sides in his cynical campaign for SBC President, there are now real conservatives standing against the Never Trump Elites.
3. Unlike the lies spread on social media about the Conservative Baptist Network, black Southern Baptists are involved.
They said no self-respecting African American would be involved.
What an insult to great Southern Baptists like Lorine Spratt. Spratt is even featured in a video on the front page of the Conservative Baptist Network’s website.
Spratt is a lay member of a SBC church and made this stirring and encouraging statement:
“I have been a member of Southern Baptist Churches for over 25 years. I chose Southern Baptists because of their strong emphasis on the inerrancy, supremacy, and sufficiency of the Word of God – not just preached but lived out in everyday life. But now, the emphasis has shifted in a direction that is diametrically opposed to the Word of God. Critical Race Theory/Intersectionality has been introduced and touted as “an analytical tool” in the SBC. I am embarrassed and insulted by this tool for many reasons but the main reason being – the Gospel of Jesus Christ is the only tool needed to heal and rescue the heart of sinful men, women, boys, and girls of every nation, every people, and every tongue. In the book of Acts, Phillip, when commanded by God to join himself to the chariot of a eunuch to help him understand the Word of God, was perfectly capable without “an analytical tool” because he was empowered by the Spirit of God. So ‘let’s beware that we are not spoiled through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, and after the rudiments of the world…’”
4. The CBN is a group of Calvinists and non-Calvinists (Traditionalists & others).
Unlike many groups in Southern Baptist life, this is not an exclusive club—something that excludes one based on soteriology (a view of salvation). The Conservative Baptist Network declares it is open to anyone who holds an orthodox understanding of salvation.
The Conservative Baptist Network declares that it is not, “a group exclusive to one soteriological view or another.”
This is an opportunity to build bridges among conservatives for the critical fight against the infiltration of Progressives.
5. The Conservative Baptist Network is growing…fast.
The Conservative Baptist Network is growing at an unbelievable pace. The group surged to 800 churches involved in the first three hours after the announcement of the group’s formation. And by Saturday, the Conservative Baptist Network announced it had surged to over 2,000 signed up to join.
This should encourage everyone. And, if you want to join the Conservative Baptist Network, then you can visit their site and use the form.
We encourage you to do so and stand against the Liberal Elites running the Southern Baptist Convention.
