Whistleblower exposes the Social Justice Gospel perverting missions at the North American Mission Board (NAMB).
NAMB VP Dhati Lewis is Social Justice Warrior. Church supported Democrat front group the And Campaign.
A church planter was told by the Southern Baptist Convention’s church planting leadership that Social Justice was a necessary part of the Gospel and that anyone not preaching Social Justice was teaching a half-Gospel. The bombshell revelation exposing the perversion of the Social Justice Gospel in the SBC was made by a church planter in a video released on YouTube.
Church planter Kyle Whitt detailed how the North American Mission Board (NAMB) through its church planting arm the SEND Network was promoting works as a necessary party of the Gospel. Whitt detailed emails and conversations with NAMB staff including SEND Network Vice President Dhati Lewis.
According to Whitt, Lewis said that Social Justice through “holistic restoration” was a necessary part of the Gospel and failure to emphasize that is a half or partial Gospel.
“When you tell someone that they have a partial Gospel or half-Gospel, you are telling them that it is false,” Whitt said.
According to Kyle Whitt, Dhati Lewis said that “holistic restoration is not a work of those who have been saved by the Gospel but that is the Gospel.”
Whitt detailed how NAMB has elevated the “Great Requirement” into equal status with the Great Commission and the Great Commandment.
Whitt then read from Chapter 7 of the SEND Network Kingdom Values digital ebook.
Here is the excerpt:
Have you ever heard the saying, “Save the soul, and the rest will follow”? This unfortunately characterizes the historic actions of many American evangelicals. We’ve reduced the gospel to the Great Commission, “Go therefore and make disciples,” and the Great Commandment, “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength … and love your neighbor as yourself.” Yet, in all our evangelistic zeal, we have tragically missed a key component of the gospel: restoration through the Great Requirement.
We see the Great Requirement in Micah 6:8:
Mankind, he has told each of you what is good and what it is the Lord requires of you: to act justly, to love faithfulness, and to walk humbly with your God. God requires us to do justice, love kindness, and walk humbly with Him. The Great Requirement does not happen separately from our commission and commandment.
Whitt pointed out that the language here implies that the Gospel does not happen without this additional Great Requirement.
And making it even clearer how far down the Woke Social Justice Gospel that NAMB and its leadership have fallen, emails posted by Whitt involving Dhati Lewis make it clear.
According to one email from Dhati Lewis, “The gospel is the power we have to be ambassadors for the Kingdom, bringing holistic restoration to our communities and cities to show how the gospel transforms every single area of life.”
Thus, NAMB has made Social Justice a Works Requirement of the Gospel.
Is it shocking that the SBC is in terminal decline?
NAMB Rep says organization does not need to be transparent
Kyle Whitt was told by the local NAMB missionary that “NAMB has no responsibility to be transparent,” Whitt said. “Yes, I was told that. I was told by him that NAMB has no responsibility to be transparent.”
Whitt said this is a problem for the Southern Baptist Convention. He said the SBC needs accountability.
“People need to know how their church planters are being trained,” Whitt said. He said this is the only way for the SBC to have restoration.
Many in the SBC have made calls for greater transparency from Kevin Ezell and the North American Mission Board. In fact, many state executive directors detailed serious violations of biblical ethics by Ezell.
And just a reminder, but Kevin Ezell was Al Mohler’s pastor and has deep connections with Mohler as this map handily illustrates all the Woke people connected to Mohler’s influence network.
