In this two-part sermon series, Ryan Fullerton preaches on Romans and Critical Theory.
Todd Benkert’s recent piece on Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality (CRT|I) at SBCVoices.com is helpfully clarifying in at least three ways. First, Benkert straightforwardly admits that both he and others within the Southern Baptist Convention are using Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality. Benkert indicates they are not merely using the language of CRT|I, but itsContinue reading “Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality in the Southern Baptist Convention: Defense (Part 4 of 4)”
In this statement, non-SBC author Carl F. Ellis, Jr. offers seven points of clarification on Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality.

In this article, non-SBC author Lisa Spencer asks, “Does Jesus really need to look ‘just like us’ in order to be acceptable to us? Do we really need to circumvent the reality of sin so that it doesn’t offend our sense of ethnic affirmation?

God blessed the Southern Baptist Convention with victory in a battle for the Bible during the Conservative Resurgence. But theological giants from that era now warn of a looming threat outside of the concern for defending the doctrine of the inerrancy of Scripture.

I gave into the desire to see myself asContinue reading “Femininity and Faithfulness”
