American Southern Baptists Declares Stand Against Racism And White Supremacy

4

The President of the Southern Baptists Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission has strongly condemned white supremacy and racism as “anti-Christ.” Southern Baptists “must have the clarity and courage to apply the Gospel to the anti-Christ doctrines of blood and soil racism and white supremacy,” Russell Moore said.

“What would it say to the world around us if they saw our churches made up of every tribe and tongue and nation and language serving one another, loving one another?”

“What they would see is a sign of contradiction to the outside watching world.”

“When the rest of the world wants to retreat back into ethnic silos, we instead should make it clear that we are one family, that we are one body, and that an attack on one part of the body is an attack on the whole, including the head, the Lord Jesus Christ,” Moore continued.

“We should lead with gospel clarity and we should do so not with a sense of hopelessness as the lost world sometimes does but with the understanding that Jesus can change people and that the gospel can change things … the arc of the moral universe is long and it bends toward Jesus.”

  1. I WOULD LIKE HIM TO ADDRESS THE SEX ABUSE OF CHILDREN AND WOMEN IN THE CHURCH. THEY RELEASE ‘OLD’ RECORDS BUT WHAT ABOUT THE SYSTEMIC ABUSE THAT HAS GONE ON LONG ENOUGH. I HAVE NEVER HEARD AN APOLOGY TO ALL OF US. AND THE FACT THEY REFUSE TO LET WOMEN PREACH OR TEACH TO MEN??? NO OTHER COUNTRY FORBIDS THIS, ONLY THE MALE CHAUVINISTIC AMERICAN CHURCH.

    • The bible said women shall not have authority over men in the church. Baptists aren’t known for child abuse. You’re speaking of Catholics.

      • God gave gifts to all, male and female. period. the American Church is the most misogynistic church in the world, keeping women down. Paul was not preaching to us, he was talking to the Jewish synagogue/churches. to this day their synagogues are separated by sexes…not so under Christ. YOu would put women under this law, and not grace for sure. it is nothing more than American men wanting to ‘lord’ it over women, period. Also, you better research the Southern Baptist church recently release a big report on all the sexual abuse of children and girls in the church. google the subject you will see.

  2. Blood and soil isn’t racism or anti Christ. God divided the nation’s and peoples. Love for ones nation and people is not hatred of other nations and peoples. I can love every race and nation whilst retaining my own and a fervent love for Jesus. The opposite is anti Christ.
