JD Greear recently RT’d the political views of a leftist lesbian writer. The lesbian aspires to teach men how to preach, finds “Gospel themes” in pornography, and promotes Democratic talking points as though they were Gospel-centered ideas. Greear, the “frat boy president” of the SBC, seems to suffer from a catastrophic lack of discernment.
Pulpit & Pen first wrote about McLaughlin in February of 2018, because she wrote a post finding supposed Gospel themes in the 50 Shades of Grey series, which is about the BDSM sexual fetish.
McLaughlin also wrote an article saying that “God is raising up homosexuals to lead us.”
McLaughlin is one of many (non-practicing) homosexuals used by The Gospel Coalition (TGC) to change the way evangelicals think about sodomy. McLaughlin, who says that she is still sexually attracted to women and could envision herself married to another woman, seeks to convince Christians that Same-Sex Attraction is not a sin unless acted upon. TGC frequently uses Same-Sex Attracted individuals like McLaughlin, Jackie Hill Perry, and gay priest, Sam Allberry, to argue that God will not change someone’s sexual orientation through the process of sanctification.
McLaughlin is also an outspoken advocate for the left-of-center political spectrum (as you would expect).
This tweet, in particular, is frustrating. First, implying that nationalism (a belief that the nation-state political system is important to ensuring civil liberties and human flourishing) is somehow necessarily “white-centric” is pure silliness, and is an argument made by communitarians and globalists, like those who comprise TGC.
Secondly, the number of those who do promote white supremacy within evangelicalism pale in comparison to those who promote Critical Race Theory and Black Nationalism (like TGC author, Thabiti Anyabwile). McLaughlin and Greear might as well be tilting at windmills.
While the Bible speaks to the subject of ethnic disharmony (particularly through the Jew-Gentle dynamic of the New Testament), the Bible’s solution is color-blindness as found in places like Galatians and Corinthians.
There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus (Galatians 3:28)
And yet, the Critical Race Theory of Greear and McLaughlin insists that people be viewed in respect to their ethnicity or perceived victimhood identity status.
When will Southern Baptists wake up and realize that they should flee the denomination? One would think it’s about the time its president is retweeting a liberal lesbian feminist.
