Are you a member of a Southern Baptist church and concerned about the recent trajectory of the SBC? Are you concerned that a portion of your tithes and offerings are being forwarded from the offering plate at your local church to the unaccountable and wasteful bureaucracy of the North American Mission Board? Are you concerned that you are helping to pay for the “Office of Kingdom Diversity” at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary or the progressive social justice agenda of the Ethics and Liberty Commission? If your church participates in the Cooperative Program, you are paying for these things. You don’t have to. It’s time for you and your church to consider direct giving. You can learn how to give around SBC waste and defund liberalism by reading The Cooperative Program and the Road to Serfdom 2nd Edition, now available in paperback and on Kindle. I wrote this short book to explain what is wrong with the Cooperative Program, its progressivist founding, its inefficiency and corruption, and what Southern Baptists can do about it to save their Convention from itself.
From the foreword by JD Hall:
“What Seth has presented in this small book are a list of ways that we can cooperate without throwing our dollars away as poor stewards, along with a thorough analysis of how Cooperative Program funds are terribly abused and ineffective. As an accountant and a Southern Baptist, Seth is uniquely positioned to give a thoroughly economic understanding of the Cooperative Program and why we need to rethink how we go about our financial partnerships.”
