Like Greear, New SBC President Says the Bible “Whispers” About Homosexuality

There must be a conspiracy in the Southern Baptist Convention to elect presidents who hate the Word of God and deny its power. Following in the footsteps of former Southern Baptist president, JD Greear, the newly elected president, Ed Litton–whose church website denied the Trinity as recently as last week–makes the exact same mistake with nearly identical wording–which was taken, according to Greear, from Village Church lady-preacher, Jen Wilkin (who also says that women’s periods are a parable of the crucifixion)–that the Bible only “whispers” about homosexuality while it “shouts” about other sins.

Homosexuality is the only sin in Scripture in which two cities were wiped off the face of the earth for not only committing, but celebrating. The notion that God does not see homosexuality as far more egregious than other sins is despicable. Paul taught that some sins are worse than others, and had a particular revulsion toward homosexuality (Romans 1:24-27, 1 Corinthians 5:1-12, 1 Corinthians 6:9, 15-17, 1 Thessalonians 4:6 )

Litton also mangles the entire plot of Romans 1, stating that he often “misinterpreted” the text in Romans 1 to understand that Paul was concluding that homosexuality is a worse sin than others–but he no longer believes that.

Either Litton has lost his mind or has a severe lack of theological understanding of the consequences of sin. Not only does God’s law treat homosexuality as more egregious than these other sins, but of course, Paul thought of homosexuality as more egregious as well. Paul wrote in Romans 1:26, “For this reason, God gave them over to dishonorable passions…” It is for “this reason,” that is, other sins like the ones that Litton is listing off, that God gave them over to the most corrupt form of judgment on earth–homosexuality.

Should we really be surprised that the Southern Baptist Convention elected another JD Greear clone as president? This is where the denomination is–it is theologically bankrupt and at this time, the best thing that could happen is that God burns it down to the ground.
