I can honestly say from the perspective of one who is deeply saddened by the state of the Southern Baptist Convention that it is disheartening to see so many pastors in the denomination carried away by vain philosophies and dropped into the abyss of their own mass delusions. Dwight McKissic so happens to be one of the men at the forefront of this delusory movement that is consumed by such philosophies and doctrines of demons. I do not dislike Dwight McKissic and believe that he should be treated as a fellow image bearer. However, his continued attacks on those who oppose his unbiblical views must be dealt with in a way that is glorifying to God.

The Apostle Paul calls on Christians to refute these errors, to destroy these arguments raised against the knowledge of God, and to “punish every disobedience” for those who continue in this rebellion against God. The ultimate punishment for this disobedience is ex-communication—but we must remember that even ex-communication is done with the hopes that one will ultimately repent and return to the body.

While ex-communication is typically performed at the local church level, it has become clear at this time that it is apropos to consider the removal of Dwight McKissic’s church from fellowship. The refusal of the Southern Baptist Convention to deal with such factious rhetoric coming from Dwight McKissic only makes the denomination partakers in his sin at this point.

McKissic has continually lobbed the accusation of “racism” against faithful men and women simply for their refusal to participate in a carnal system designed to destroy Church. Critical Race Theory, a Marxist idea that has been baptized and introduced to Evangelical churches under the guise of “racial reconciliation,” has been one of the most divisive man-made philosophies to ever attack the Church. The Apostle Paul warns in Colossians 2:8:

See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.

And while many of us continue to fight against such wickedness, others, like Dwight McKissic are hell-bent on advancing it, promoting it, and opposing anyone who resists it. One of those people that McKissic continually opposes and attacks is Tom Ascol. Ascol, a Reformed pastor and committed brother who faithfully shepherds his flock and contends for the faith (as we are called to do in Jude), continues to receive the accusation of racism from McKissic. As we reported earlier today, conservative Southern Baptist leaders are calling on the Southern Baptist Convention to make a Constitutional amendment banning member churches from ordaining women to the pastorate. After Ascol posted that document to receive signatures on Twitter, McKissic immediately attacked him as a “racist.”

At what point does the denial of Scripture and attacks on the biblical fundamentals of the faith become factious and divisive enough to warrant action? There doesn’t appear to be a clear answer to that. But we do know that these situations require both prayer and biblical action and the failure to do demonstrates a breakdown in the priorities of the leadership.
