Southern Baptist Convention - Liberal Resolution
Southern Baptist Liberal
Johnny Hunt endorses liberal Southern Baptist SBC Resolution in Honor of President Obama
Is Southern Baptist going liberal? Johnny Hunt does not support conservative agenda of previous SBC Presidents
A resolution has been proposed to honor President Obama at the upcoming Southern Baptist Convention. Chances of its passage has been greatly enhanced by endorsement of this resolution by Southern Baptist President, Johnny Hunt.
As we see President Obama taking aggressive action to move America away from its moral foundation and Christian heritage, it would be the wrong message to America to honor a President whose polices are very anti-Christian.
A resolution to honor President Obama would be sending the wrong message to America and would distort the Biblical based image that the conservative reformers of recent years have been trying to restore. President Obama has pushed the abortion agenda in his past life as a US Senator and the liberal abortion polices has been aggressively pursued by his current administration.
The Obama abortion polices are simply the killing of babies, a direction violation of the Commandment, "Thou shalt not kill", and is the most horrible abomination in our society. Do Southern Baptist and its President wish to honor such a man who promotes the killing of babies?
Just this past week, the Obama Administration announced the promotion of the Gay agenda by instituting gay domestic partner insurance polices for federal employees. President Obama is pushing his form of morality. The liberal media has instructed us Christians, that we should not do that. But it is okay for the President to impose his immorality and religious beliefs upon us.
The Bible teaches a position contrary to the positions of President Obama:
Leviticus 18:22, 24
Thou shalt not lie with mankind, as with womankind, it is abomination. Defile not ye yourselves in any of these things
1 Kings 15:11-12
And Asa did that which was right in the eyes of the LORD, as did David his father. And he took away the sodomites out of the land, and removed all the idols that his fathers had made.
Stepping to the low depths of ungodliness, we have a President who pushes evil polices and the destruction of our Christian heritage. So do we wish to honor such a President with a resolution of honor?
Southern Baptist have been on the rightward swing for the past several years to restore Biblical foundation. Previously liberals controlled the organization and seminaries were full of professors who did not believe the truth of the scriptures and many of them were not born again. With the previous election of Adrian Rogers, the current generation of Southern Baptists have done much to restore Biblical foundations and hire Godly Bible believing professors in the seminaries. President Johnny Hunt is sending mixed signals and the movement to restore the conservative Biblical positions appears to be going backwards. While great efforts were made to separate Obama policy with the fact that the Obama type could be elected as President, the newspapers took advantage of the situation, and the many headlines painted the picture as Southern Baptist as being liberal Obama supporters. While many SBC thought they could be close to the pig, but not be a part of endorsing the Obama policies, and paint a pious righteous picture, they wound up getting in the mud with the pig and looking like a bunch of fools.
Our Christian Heritage Educational Thinking Is Going Away From America's Foundation
In the roots of the history of American Christian Heritage, let us always be mindful of the Biblical roots that our forefathers gave us. It was a philosophy based on the Bible as we are reminded of the story of Exodus, to get out of Egypt. This Christian education thinking must be passed on to the next generation.

Conservative Resolutions on several subjects need to be passed. The truth is that the last couple of SBC Presidents have not been conservative and are not promoting on the traditions of Adrian Rogers.
WOODSTOCK, Ga. (ABP) -- The President of the Southern Baptist Convention has voiced support for a proposed SBC resolution celebrating President Obama's election.
SBC President Johnny Hunt is pastor of First Baptist Church in Woodstock, Ga. SBC president Johnny Hunt said the denomination can support the resolution without supporting Obama's politics.
"I think it is certainly a great thing to do, to celebrate the election of an African American," Hunt, pastor of First Baptist Church of Woodstock, Ga., told One News Now, a media outlet affiliated with the American Family Association.
"That was a great day in our country," Hunt said. "We celebrate it as a country, and I think, [as] Southern Baptists, we can do that."
Dwight McKissic, pastor of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Arlington, Texas, has submitted a resolution celebrating Obama's election "as a significant contribution to the ongoing cause of racial reconciliation in the United States."
McKissic, who is African American, said he didn't expect any major opposition to the proposal, even though the SBC in the recent past has embraced Republican presidents and criticized Democrats, including one of its own -- Bill Clinton, a member of Immanuel Baptist Church in Little Rock, Ark.
In a comment on McKissic's education blog, Utah pastor Jason Epps expressed skepticism about McKissic's optimism over the resolution's philosophy support in the SBC. The comment was quoted in a story in the Christian Post, an Internet news service based in Washington.
Utah pastor Jason Epps says while he didn't vote for Obama, Southern Baptists should celebrate the election of an African-American president. "I sincerely hope you are correct, but the cynical part of me wonders what the good ole boys might have to say about this," Epps commented. "I guess we'll just have to see."
"I agree with Johnny Hunt" on Obama's election, Epps said in an interview June 17. "I think it's a bittersweet thing."
"I think it is great Obama was elected, being an African American," he said. "At the same time his policies are very dangerous, but we just have to find the good in it.
Many of the good ole boys who are Southern Baptist should not simply say anything good about Obama, no matter what the spin is. The stupidity, lack of wisdom, and lack of conservative thinking is reflected by the SBC in this resolution as history will show. We are turning away from the heritage of Christian America.
What you can do?
1. Contact all of your Southern Baptist friends and ask them to take a stand. Every pastor of every Southern Baptist Church has a right to vote at the convention and churches may send several messengers. Thousands of them will attend.
2. Call the Southern Baptist Ethics Commission and leave a message. 1-888-324-8456 or (615) 244-2495.
3. Forward this email to others and ask them to actively contact their friends as well.
To restore our great Christian republic, this is the wrong message to send to America. The creditability of Southern Baptist Churches are at stake. Southern Baptist Churches need to be at the forefront of leading a revival in this country, not play the role of comprise and political correctness.
4. Next time, at state and national level, elect conservatives to leadership positions.
12 And now, Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul,
13 To keep the commandments of the LORD, and his statutes, which I command thee this day for thy good?
