What's going on in the Southern Baptist Convention?

I often read SBC Voices. They seem to be running headlong into a split regarding critical race theory, the Seminary Presidents, etc!

I understand that they were called the 'Battlin Baptists' for a reason.

I've long since left the SBC behind but it seems they are just looking for division, and strife. Terrible witness to the world.

Here is an example.

The bureaucrats (and a large number of the preachers) are no longer responsive to the churches of the Convention.

I gave up on them when they sealed the (IIRC) GCRTF minutes, including the open meetings, while having accredited people willing to redact the closed minutes (closed for mostly valid reasons IMO). The ones wanting them sealed outright extorted the Convention by stating that no matter what the Convention said, no group subordinate to or commissioned by the Convention would ever keep any minutes or records ever again if the Convention didn't vote to seal them.

It started with me when the SBC refused to set down Ergun Caner and his lies, adulterous life, etc. Page Patterson covering for Daryl Hilyard. Finally, it was the slippery slope of liberalism, CRT, IIRC.

I leave them with to the mercy of God.

What's sad is that it appears the bulk of the local churches are only about SBC to combine for a couple of mission funds and they only try to make sure those are funded (and honest) while ignoring everything else the big megachurches are pushing with the bureaucracy.

And I thought the blood letting in the early 80s was bad.
I graduated from TSBTS Dec '83. While there one of my fave professors Dale Moody who had been at TSBTS since before I was born, 40+ years, and who passed the mandatory retirement age was on contract as an adjunct professor, his contract was canceled because a mission director in AR objected to some of his teaching.

Ever wonder what the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes was? The deeds of the Nicolaitanes was sexual immorality whereas the doctrines of the Nicolaitanes is only a guess.. by the meaning of the name "conquest of the laity".

In scripture, the Presbytery is supposed to be in the city where the churches dwell. Nowadays, the Presbytery over a denomination of churches is located far away in a city. The difference between the 2 is obvious as the Presbytery is to be subjected to the Word of God as the churches are. The Presbytery today, you cannot do that. You do not know who those people are in the Presbytery nor can you vote for or vote out those governing from that position when they go astray Biblically.

So if a church or a pastor doe not like the direction the Presbytery is going, they risk being excommunicated and the pastor is out of a job. How is that for conquest over the laity? Just trick the churches that they need to belong to a Presbytery to avoid losing their church building somehow and the next thing you know, you have been punk'd.

So what good does a church belonging to a Presbytery do?

Jesus Christ is the Head of every believer and every Church for why the Word of God is Whom we are to be submissive to and how we can hold leaders accountable, yea, even the original Presbytery when it is in that city where churches can hold it accountable to the Word of God just as the Presbytery is supposed for the churches in that city.

I suspect the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes has the RCC fingerprints all over it as that would be something the Jesuits would try to create, if not infiltrate to sow discord and chaos from. God only knows since there can be other self serving carnal & egotistical believers, but He does hate the doctrines of the Nicolaitanes.

Is it any wonder why correcting a church doesn't happen for why believers are led to leave, scattered by the wolf that cares not for the sheep?
