‘God doesn’t need the SBC’ – Voddie Baucham Warns The Church

‘God doesn’t need the SBC’ – Voddie Baucham Warns The Church

In the midst of a flood of internal debates and controversies, two of Evangelical Christianity’s most well-known pastors are encouraging the nation’s largest Protestant group to oppose compromise.

Pastors Voddie Baucham and John MacArthur spoke at an event presented by the Conservative Baptist Network before of the Southern Baptist Convention’s annual convention this week in Anaheim, California.

The gathering on Sunday drew roughly 2,000 people and featured a panel discussion with CBN-endorsed candidates vying for SBC seats, in addition to statements from Baucham and MacArthur.

The CBN is described as a “partnership of Southern Baptists where all generations are encouraged, equipped, and empowered to bring positive, biblical solutions that strengthen the SBC in an effort to fulfil the Great Commission and influence culture.” It was formed in 2020 amid growing concern that the denomination is drifting from biblical orthodoxy towards more “social justice” theology and “woke-ism.”

Baucham, who lost a bid Tuesday to become the next president of the SBC Pastor’s Conference to a relatively unknown North Carolina pastor, touched on several topics that have roiled the SBC ranks, including critical race theory (CRT) and new revelations about sexual abuse and coverup within the SBC.

‘God doesn’t need the SBC’ – Voddie Baucham Warns The Church

He issued a stark reminder about the sovereignty of God in building His kingdom, adding that “we recognize that God doesn’t need the Southern Baptist Convention.”

“I love the SBC. I’ve been trained and educated and nurtured in the Southern Baptist Convention. I praise God for the Southern Baptist Convention,” said Baucham, according to Church Leaders. “But hear me when I say [that] God does not need the Southern Baptist Convention. Now, we pray that God will continue to use the Southern Baptist Convention, amen?”

Baucham, 52, currently serves as dean of theology at African Christian University in Zambia. He was nominated for president by Founders Ministries, a conservative group within the SBC for which he also serves as a board member.

But while his election loss didn’t occur until the following day, Baucham indicated that the conference was grappling with a decades-long history of abuse within the SBC due to God’s “judgment” falling upon both the Church and the culture outside its walls.

“I recognize that God doesn’t need America. … What I’m worried about is that there is this judgment that is happening simultaneously,” he said. “There’s this judgment that we’re seeing in our broader culture that is also being reflected in a kind of judgment that we’re seeing within broader Evangelicalism and a judgment we’re seeing within the Southern Baptist Convention.”

Baucham also cautioned against emphasizing benevolence and social justice over the Gospel in a country where Christianity is increasingly demonized and despised as an “enemy in the culture.”

“One of the things that happens when the Gospel becomes an enemy in the culture is that we want to appease the culture by doing the good without the name,” he said. “The work that we do is known as work that is social in nature [and] that has absolutely nothing to do with the Gospel. It’s work that anyone else can do, and you don’t need the name of Jesus in order to do it. And we do this because we recognize the animosity that the culture has toward the Gospel.”

“They’ve gone [from] arguing that we’re wrong to arguing that we’re evil,” he added.

Baucham specifically cited social justice ideology, which he said “argues that there is not only this sort of oppressor-oppressed paradigm but that the oppression is ultimately rooted and grounded in Christianity.”

Speaking later in the day Tuesday, MacArthur, who pastors the non-denominational Grace Community Church in Sun Valley, California, encouraged his fellow laborers in ministry to worry less about cultural trends and focus instead on the Word of God.

“All effective, uncompromising ministry starts with an understanding [that the Kingdom of God is not of this world],” MacArthur said. “The world provides nothing for you to advance the Kingdom of God — not politically, not in terms of power, not in terms of influence, not in terms of alliances, not in terms of connections. It offers you nothing.”

He referenced the trend of ministries and pastors working to accommodate more culturally-friendly services and sermons, saying, “You can hook yourself to the world and you can think it’s only the style, but they will drag you to the bottom.”

MacArthur also quoted Matthew 11:20, when Jesus denounced those cities “in which most of His miracles were performed because they didn’t repent.”

“​​I’ve never had any interest in providing what the children of the devil want. I don’t want to design a church service for the children of the devil,” MacArthur said. “I don’t expect to be popular with them. I expect to be hated.”

Despite the ongoing controversy over sexual abuse and other “denominational” rifts, Southern Baptists remain the largest Protestant group in the U.S., accounting for more than 5% of the adult population and nearly one-fifth of all Evangelical Protestants, according to a Pew 2014 study.

Southern Baptists, which evolved from 17th-century Baptists who settled in the American colonies, formed their own group in 1845 over disagreements with their northern counterparts regarding slavery.

Dr Abel Damina Was Wrong For Saying This About Dunsin Oyekan’s Song

Dr Abel Damina Was Wrong For Saying This About Dunsin Oyekan's Song

Dr Abel Damina Was Wrong For Saying This About Dunsin Oyekan’s Song

Trending on the internet is a video of Dr. Abel Damina who is known for his controversial take on issues concerning the body of Christ and is seen by many as a heretic or controversial preacher saying the song Channels Of My Spirit by Dunsin Oyekan is unscriptural. This has caused a mixed reaction from ministers, musicians and the general audience who are for or against Abel Damina’s take.

However, looking at the revelation behind the song, we would agree that Dr Abel did not understand the context. In the video below he referred to the channel as a frequency, not as a pathway for a body of water. The Bible says in JOHN 7:37b -39 feast, Jesus stood up and called out in a loud voice, “If anyone is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink. 38Whoever believes in Me, as the Scripture has said: ‘Streams of living water will flow from within him.’” 39He was speaking about the Spirit, whom those who believed in Him were later to receive. For the Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus had not yet been glorified

OUR TAKE 

A channel in the spirit could mean a pathway by which we reflect the embodiment of the Holy Spirit in us, in our everyday life, jobs, academics, careers and ministry that will in turn make others give glory to God. Anything that affords you the privilege to reflect the God in You is a channel of the Spirit. The Bible says by their fruits we shall know them.

Watch the video to have a full grasp of the concept and revelation behind this song which is proof that Dr. Abel was incorrect for berating the sanctity and revelation behind the song.  Above all, let love lead!! Let us refrain from the bathers on social media and pray for one another.

We are happy to see this happen after a long time, but this is much expected as the highest expression of Priesthood is Love!!. The enemy is fighting against the body causing discord and bringing many into contention and completion . But, if we stand together as a whole body united and in love we will defeat the enemy.

Apostle Arome Osayi & Apostle Mike Orokpo Reconcile

He has agenda to make the house divide against itself, for the scripture to be fulfilled. In Matthew 15:25 ‘Jesus knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom divided against itself will be ruined, and every city or household divided against itself will not stand. Therefor, anything that brings about unity and peace amongst shepherd must be encouraged.

Thus, we  are on body and we serve the Living God! See the Official post in the Image below;

THE ZARIA RECONCILIATION AND PEACE ACCORD.
We bless the name of the Lord of peace Himself who has brought peace between his servants Apostle Arome Osayi and Apostle Orokpo Michael.
The meeting which held on Monday June 3, 2024 in Zaria was specially summoned by Apostle Arome’s father in the Lord, Dr. John Akpami, the heavenly arbitrator who saw off all matters in a most Holy Ghost charged atmosphere of love after a blunt session of truth revelations and discernment.
Special appreciation to Dr. Paul Enenche who did everything within his powers to ensure that the meeting holds to bring the needed peace to the both parties cum the body of Christ.
