Since Russell Moore departed the Southern Baptist Convention earlier this year, he has been on an inevitable slide toward complete and total apostasy. While some of us have been sounding the alarm against Moore since he took office at the Southern Baptist Convention’s (SBC) Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) in 2013, it took the majority of the denomination years to realize that Moore was nothing more than a political operative who infiltrated the Church to turn it sharply and decidedly to the left.
Since his departure from the SBC, Moore joined the rank apostate publication founded by the late Billy Graham, Christianity Today, which has been on a notable downward spiral for the last two decades into both theological and political leftism. Moore is no different and he has used his platform to expose himself for the Democrat that he is.
Russell Moore—who has unabashedly called on conservatives to stop fighting the “culture wars” because that’s not what Christians are supposed to do, apparently—still in many ways represents the progressive wing of the Southern Baptist Convention. Moore’s ideological assault on conservatism didn’t end when he departed the denomination last year, he simply moved his offensive to a different arena.
And guess what, he’s out there fighting the culture wars—he’s just doing it from his own political leftist perspective.
In 2013, when Moore took office at the ERLC, even I wouldn’t have guessed that he’d fall off the reservation this far. I mean, we knew he wanted to slide the Overton Window of Evangelical conservatism to the left, but most of us would not have guessed 9 years ago that he’d be sharing the stage with a homosexual politician and Hillary Clinton. In fact, he has joined dozens upon dozens of far-left politicians and political activists at a political conference in Texas.
Here’s Moore, at the Texas Tribune Festival, in front of an audience of thousands of leftists and among dozens of Democrat politicians and activists he’s sharing the platform with, lecturing us about the future of Evangelical Christianity in America.
So who else is at this conference? Well, among the featured speakers are homosexual activist and political operative, Pete Buttigieg, and his favorite Democrat presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton.
Why is Russell Moore here? Because this is who he is. These are the people he identifies with. And this is the political atmosphere he has fought for in the Southern Baptist Convention and the Evangelical Church for the last decade. And, sadly, so many Southern Baptist pastors and leaders have been moved by his activism, naive enough to follow him, and blatantly stupid enough not to listen to the few voices in the wilderness who have been warning the sheep about him for the last several years.
Hopefully, Evangelical leaders will wake up and embrace the gift of discernment that God has given the body of Christ and instead of writing the gift off as “divisive,” use it to edify the saints and purge the Church of these evil men and women before the damage is done.
