On Leaving the SBC

The entire ministry of Pulpit & Pen began as a web-log of doctrinal Downgrade in the Southern Baptist Convention. Having been born, raised, educated, ordained, and working for the Southern Baptist Convention virtually my entire life, I saw the ground gained in the Conservative Resurgence on Scriptural inerrancy crumble into sand by the Convention’s general growing denial of Scriptural sufficiency.

I set about to write a list of my problems with the SBC, in one final swan-song of separation from this unrepentant beast of an organization. But then, I realized that’s basically what Pulpit & Pen is, in total. Why repeat what has been documented daily and so with so many details on this website?

Betraying the Gospel in the name of political correctness at the SBC-sponsored MLK50 event was final straw. Yesterday, I said goodbye. Watch the video below.

Bringing you discernment news and commentary from a biblical, polemical perspective means it is tough out there on social media. We’re constantly getting kneecapped and constrained by tech companies who find our fidelity to the scripture and pursuit of truth to be intolerable, resulting in our reach being severely throttled.

For this reason, we ask you please consider supporting us a few different ways. The first, by liking and following our new Facebook page, our home where we share new posts and interact with our members. The second, by following and retweeting our Twitter page. The third, by signing up for our newsletter below.

And last, through direct support. You can catch our free weekly episodes of the Polemics Report by subscribing at BTWN. If you like what you hear and desire to hear more, you can get the VIP full-length version for only $5.95 per month on Patreon. Also, you get other freebies for additional monthly pledges.
