The Never-Ending SBC Apology Tour
If anyone doubts the intrusion of Critical Theory into the worldview of the average Southern Baptist Christian, or church, not to mention the Convention at upper echelons as expressed in the annual resolutions proposed and passed at conventions, one need only: a) Observe how many SBC leaders are now linking the pro-life cause with socialism / Marxism / redistribution of wealth / government nanny-state; b) Review the many resolutions expressing some kind of public apology for sins of the past.

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge, I reject you from being a priest to Me. And since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children” (Hosea 4:4-6).

A Prayer for the Southern Baptist Convention
“For we are powerless against this great horde that is coming against us. We do not know what to do, but our eyes are on You [Lord]” (2 Chron 20:12).
