A Tale of Two Southern Baptist Leaders & the Lawlessness in America
There are two types of Southern Baptist leaders. The first SBC leader knows the truth and talks about it clearly. The second SBC leader pleases the Woke mob. Let’s examine the contrast between the former Southern Baptist Convention president Jack Graham and current SBC president J.D. Greear.
Graham tweeted this morning that conservative Christian evangelicals leaving the White House were abused with hateful, profane language.
“About 150 faith leaders were invited to the President’s speech and afterwards we were confronted by Marxist, leftists, thugs….filthy blasphemous infidels. We saw with our own eyes and up close the evil of the anarchists and anti-Christ lawlessness. The insanity has to stop.”
Other Southern Baptists told similar stories including Malachi O’Brien.
Of course, it wasn’t only Southern Baptists facing the wrath of the mob. Sen. Rand Paul was saved by police. He said, “Just got attacked by an angry mob of over 100, one block away from the White House. Thank you to @DCPoliceDept for literally saving our lives from a crazed mob.”
Also, Jack Graham made clear his support for the police. He said, “So very grateful for police officers and those who are doing their best risking their own safety to protect others. The stakes of the 2020 elections could not be more obvious. Law and Order vs the socialist agenda vs the left.”
Contrast this clear and needed condemnation of the mobs ruining America with J.D. Greear’s enabling of these Woke mobs. In comments on the clearly justified police shooting of a man in Wisconsin, Greear said he was confused at how to react?
Resisting arrest, breaking into a woman’s apartment and diving into a car where a weapon was located is a recipe for having the police shoot you. Color would be irrelevant and there are many police shootings of all races that illustrate that point.
Anyway, here is what Greear had to say: “I’m deeply grieved and confused by this #JacobBlake video. As a dad, my teens are trying to process it and I’m not sure how to coach them, as many of you are. We grieve a deeply racialized society that gives birth to hostility and suspicion. We want to live in a country… To be clear, I’m not attempting to play judge and jury. As a pastor, I’m neither called nor—from my vantage point—competent to do that here. I am grieving the devastation of a family, the racialized society in which this happened, which gives rise to seemingly incessant… a question in how justice is administered. In the meantime, we can bear each others’ burdens. The humility, compassion and healing necessary to tear down these walls of hostility are found only in the cross.” https://twitter.com/jdgreear/status/1298269020550909955
Buddy, you grieve a racialized society? You helped create it. You’ve approved of and helped spread the scourge of Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality in the Southern Baptist Convention.
Repent of what you’ve done to harm the Church, the Southern Baptist Convention and the United States of America.
That is what a real leader would do.
Otherwise, we will know you really did mean it when you said it is “great” if a Christian votes Democrat.
