After Major Pushback, Southern Baptist Leader Drops Partnership With Gay-Affirming “Evangelism” Ministry

For the last several days, The Dissenter has been reporting on the newly-proposed partnership between the Southern Baptist Convention’s North American Mission Board (NAMB) and a heretical “evangelism” ministry called He Gets Us. He Gets Us, as we demonstrated, is not only a gay-affirming ministry that will help you find a pro-LGBTQ church, but it also preaches a false gospel of inclusivism. He Gets Us is essentially a PR campaign for Jesus that attempts to make Jesus more palatable to the world.

NAMB, which is led by Kevin Ezell, has a historical pattern of partnering with organizations without doing his due diligence. For example, NAMB is still in partnership with a major megachurch in Florida that is regularly baptizing openly practicing and unrepentant homosexuals to plant churches. NAMB also regularly plants churches with women pastors in opposition to the SBC’s statement of faith.

So it really came as no surprise that Ezell was more than willing to jump on board with a false Christian ministry designed to smear conservative Christianity while making Jesus look like a great social justice leader.

Thankfully, however, there was enough pushback against Ezell’s new proposed partnership with He Gets Us after The Dissenter and others exposed the false gospel and heresy of this ministry publicly. Ezell released a statement apologizing for not doing his due diligence, stating “upon further consideration, the effort is too broad for us to directly connect with the campaign. In my desire to help our churches, I did less diligence than I should have. That’s on me and I apologize.”

However, the He Gets Us campaign has been public for several months and the message of the campaign has remained the same all along. If Ezell were serious in his apology, he should resign. As stated, this is a pattern of Ezell not doing his due diligence when seeking partnerships. It took many of us less than 10 minutes to peruse this ministry’s website and YouTube channel to clearly see that this group’s message was incompatible with biblical Christianity, yet, Ezell, who is paid a hefty salary to vet these ministries that Southern Baptists partner with claims that he was unaware. So either Ezell is incompetent or he’s lying—either way, he should resign.
