Upon further reflection I’m forced to agree with Pastor Ken Silva’s new definition for the acronym “SBC” which I used to think stood for “Southern Baptist Convention.
Pastor Silva (who is himself an ordained SBC minister) has irrefutably demonstrated that with its ever deepening dive into secular culture, its dabbling in contemplative spiritualism, and its experimentation with Eastern Mysticism that a more accurate descriptor for the SBC is Slowly Becoming Catholic.
If they continue in the direction they’re heading I suspect there will be many serious minded, Bible believing children of the Lord leaving the SBC as it apostatizes right along with the rest of the last days harlot professing churches.
Certainly the Lord preserves remnants of His own even – and especially! – under the direst of circumstances, and I pray that those who remain faithful to the Lord of Hosts within the rapidly apostatizing SBC will hold fast to their first love and magnify Him above the wood and stone idols of men which continue to set themselves up as objects of worship in direct competition with The One True Living and Most High God.
2 Kings 17:11-12
And there they burnt incense in all the high places, as did the heathen whom the LORD carried away before them; and wrought wicked things to provoke the LORD to anger: For they served idols, whereof the LORD had said unto them, Ye shall not do this thing.
