It is likely that you are familiar with the recent controversy surrounding Saddleback Church, previously led by Rick Warren and presently led by Andy Wood. The Southern Baptist Convention made the decision to disfellowship the church due to its ordination of women to the pastorate, following an investigation by the denomination’s credentials committee and subsequent recommendation to the Executive Committee.

While the committee encountered difficulty in immediately determining whether or not Scripture or the Baptist Faith and Message permitted women to serve in such a capacity, after extensive “research” and “study,” and under pressure from select conservative voices within the denomination, the correct decision was ultimately reached in disfellowshipping Saddleback.

However, this action prompts further inquiry. Although the decision to disfellowship should be applauded, it is pertinent to question why it took so long to reach this conclusion, as well as why it was a challenging decision to make.

Despite all of this, some Southern Baptist pastors are still lamenting the loss of a hopelessly progressive organization that masquerades as a church while lifting its proverbial middle finger to the commands of the Lord to lead according to His word. While castigating William Wolfe, an SBTS employee for publicly stating his desire for all of the truth surrounding the January 6 “insurrection” to be revealed by releasing all of the footage, SBC pastor, Dwight McKissic then makes the assertion that he believes that the decision to disfellowship Saddleback will be overturned at the annual meeting in June.

Given the current demographics of the Southern Baptist Convention, it’s not unreasonable to believe that McKissic could be on to something here. After all, These are the same people who voted for JD Greear, Ed Litton, and Bart Barber as convention presidents for five consecutive years and have no remorse for doing so.

If the Southern Baptist Convention actually does overturn the decision to disfellowship Saddleback Church, then the denomination has clearly caved to the effeminate-feminist agenda and has clearly adopted the position that women can be pastors. At this point, all bets are off and it will be clear that God’s hand of restraint has been removed from the denomination and there is no limit to the amount of rebellion not just on this issue, but other issues as well.
