John MacArthur exhorts Southern Baptists to stand courageously against the world.
John MacArthur, Tom Ascol, Voddie Baucham, Javier Chavez share spotlight at Conservative Baptist Network event.
Conservative Baptist Network makes closing case to Southern Baptist about Woke infiltration of the Church and the need to Change The Direction of the SBC.
Momentum appears to be with Tom Ascol as campaign enters its final days.
Over 1,200 people attended the Conservative Baptist Network Sunday evening event featuring John MacArthur. MacArthur shared the spotlight with Tom Ascol, a candidate for President of the Southern Baptist Convention, Voddie Baucham, a candidate for President of the SBC Pastors’ Conference, and Javier Chavez, a candidate for SBC Recording Secretary.
MacArthur’s sermon called on Southern Baptists to stand courageously against the world.
“You’re never going to advance the kingdom of God by being popular with the world. And if you think you are you are doing the devil’s work,” MacArthur said.
MacArthur also took aim at Pride Month—something important to Southern Baptists since a consulting firm hired by the SBC recently tweeted its support of LGBTQ ideology.
John MacArthur said, “Our nation spends one day, Memorial Day, to remember all who have died that we may have freedom and then spends 30 days celebrating LGBT perversion.”
Other highlights of MacArthur’s sermon included a look at how William Wilberforce’s theology influenced the abolition movement.
Standing firm on the Bible was the theme of the night.
Javier Chavez highlighted that the Bible should be our authority.
Chavez said, “We have an undeniable problem: Sin in the heart of men. But we also have a undeniable solution: La Biblia!! #WeHaveaBook #changethedirection #sbc22.”
Chavez has the endorsement of many conservative pastors and leaders. Also, Chavez has support from dozens of Hispanic pastors.
Momentum building for Tom Ascol in closing days of SBC Presidential campaign
It is hard to miss the signs that Tom Ascol is surging into the finish of the SBC election and that Bart Barber’s campaign is floundering. Ascol shared the spotlight with John MacArthur Sunday night and Tom Ascol garnered the Sunday morning endorsement of former SBC President Jack Graham.
CBN plans a Tuesday morning breakfast event. Tuesday afternoon is the vote for SBC President. There are three candidates so it is a possibility a runoff would be necessary.
The conservative candidates at this year’s SBC are also a diverse slate—something CBN’s Rod Martin noted.
Martin said, “At #SBC22: the most diverse candidates ever.
“President: @tomascol, Arab American
“PC President: @VoddieBaucham, African American
“1st VP: Victor Chayasirisobhon, Asian American
“Recording Sec: @jynchavez, Hispanic American
“Now watch the little Woke boys vote for the white guys.”
Indeed. The Woke in the SBC are no different than the Woke in leftist cities. It was noted that in the recent San Francisco DA recall election that minority communities supported the recall while rich, white neighborhoods supported the Woke DA. It is all virtue signaling. And so too in the SBC where the Woke will vote against Voddie Baucham and against Tom Ascol and instead vote for white Woke options.
