“Here’s the bottom line that the SBC’s “woke” leaders better wake up to (no pun intended): Most of the 14 million Southern Baptists in the denomination’s churches will not sit and be propagan…
It has been coming, for the last 30 years or so, SBC = Slowly Becoming Catholic and about a decade ago, I saw too many disturbing things.
1. A men's conference where the lead teacher/preacher taught his sermons with dry ice smoke and lights highlighting him in what looked like a mystical manner. No real problem with what he was teaching, but it wasn't on fire either. In a breakout, we were in a younger kids' classroom and along the way there and in the classroom were life size pictures on cardboard of the preacher like he was some kind of saint.
2. The entire coverup and sealing of the records of the GCRTF (think that was it) meetings, including the open ones the public could attend. The big SBC leader types cited privacy concerns in the closed meetings, despite having several legal firms with SBC members offering to pro bono audit to remove private information. The leaders threatened the Convention with never keeping records again if the Convention didn't give them the right to seal their meetings.
3. The official SBC websites publishing positions not agreed upon by the Convention, but in line with their "expert opinions", in defiance of what the messengers agreed was to be the SBC official position.
There are several other earlier incidents that, as I noted above, extended further in the past.
Depends on the church response to COVID. Yes, it was a real disease, a novel common cold virus that was obviously at least partially weaponized (from long incubation and duration) with a higher level of mortality among the elderly and sickly, but the response was a plandemic one. Actually, the only thing I'm aware of from my research on the topic was for something on the level of a zombie apocalypse.I think covid has revealed the remnant church. Bible believing, preaching and living born-again Christians are the remnant. The rest have passed to wokeness, seeker friendly, watered down "God accepts everyone" rhetoric. And the persecution of true Christians, uncompromising in following and living the Lord's words, is growing. Consequently we are becoming more and more outliers in all strata of societies, worldwide. We should continue to be armored up in the armor of God as we prepare for His imminent return. Keep your lanterns full brothers and sisters.
What does the Bible mean when it refers to a remnant? What are the various meanings of the term 'remnant' in the Bible?www.gotquestions.org

Which is why the entire idea of a "COVID shot" like the DeathVax is stupid... It is a COMMON COLD virus, all of which mutate so quickly that there is no immunization, no herd immunity, no cure to it other than the usual ones for colds.
The miracle of 2020 was that despite this being a reputed "killer virus", about the same number of people died in 2020 in the US as died in the previous 10 years.
Back on topic, certain common sense measures should reasonably be taken. Not come to church if you are sick (or just feel puny since you may have it and be infectious), more ways to sanitize hands, some degree of social distancing (church is one place where normal US social distancing doesn't apply), no hugging everyone if there was an outbreak in your area, etc. These and similar measures are what was done during the Spanish flu outbreak a century ago from my personal talks with people who lived through it.
