For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. — Matthew 6:21

Last Month, Southern Baptist President JD Greear called on his church and other Southern Baptist churches to join them in anti-government anti-police protestors who called for such drastic measures as defunding the police and the destruction of historic statues in the North Carolina State Capital of Raleigh. The protests, led by Greear’s associate pastor, Mike Georges, was dubbed “Protest and Pray” and Georges, along with others, sported official Black Lives Matter gear featuring George Floyd’s infamous words, “I Can’t Breathe.”

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore. This reduces our traffic and causes us to move more of our work exclusively to Substack.

These protests were encouraged by leftists, including the state governor, Roy Cooper, who was seen marching alongside these protestors breaking his own executive order and not wearing a mask. But Greear and his church gathered in mass gatherings as well not to worship corporately with their local church and body of believers, but to protest the government.

Now, amid the coronavirus and renewed calls for lockdowns due to a spike in cases which were caused by these mass protests of last month by Greear’s church and others, Greear says his church will not meet again for corporate worship this year…at all.

According to Summit Church’s official COVID-19 information page,

For the remainder of the year, we will not gather in person at our campuses on the weekend. Our plan is to equip you to be the church in your homes, in your communities, and online in order for you to continue being disciple-making disciples. So even when you can’t come to church, you can still be the church. 

Replacing actual corporate worship and discipleship with online talks while neglecting fellowship with the saints and personal interaction from pastors is not church. Pastors cannot lead their flock if they don’t see them. There is no interaction — a key component of fellowship. There is no pastoral relationship. Greear is essentially turning his flock over to the pagan culture indefinitely and failing to lead his church.
