In the past, we have alerted you to the disturbing reality that First Baptist Church Orlando, a Southern Baptist megachurch located in Orlando, Florida, has openly been baptizing practicing homosexuals. Shockingly, there has been a complete lack of accountability from the Southern Baptist Convention regarding these egregious actions to this day.
As early as 2016, The Dissenter shed light on First Baptist Church Orlando’s surrender to the ideologies of the gay movement, exposing how the church not only welcomed a group of homosexuals onto their pulpit following the Pulse Nightclub shooting but also allowed another pastor to declare that the “LGBTQ community” was the “chief cornerstone” of Christianity.
However, the situation escalated further in 2021. The associate pastor, Danny de Armas who also held the position of chair at the North American Mission Board (NAMB), shamelessly boasted from the stage about how their Southern Baptist church fully embraced homosexuals, transgender individuals, pro-abortion activists, and every other form of God-hater, granting them positions of service within the church.
Just one week later, the lead pastor, David Uth, doubled down and declared that not only would they continue down this path, but they were even partnering with NAMB to establish additional churches based on the same unscriptural ecclesiology.
Thanks to the diligent research of Justin Peters and Casey Butner, we have uncovered irrefutable evidence of the church’s affirmation of homosexuality at the Florida megachurch, First Baptist Orlando.
However, this past weekend, David Uth preached a sermon on the “awkwardness” of confronting sexual sin and sexual immorality. In typical David Uth fashion, the sinfulness of homosexuality and sexual immorality was completely downplayed and Uth took the typical Evangelical soft-pedaling stance on sexual sin to a new extreme, declaring that if you have desires to sodomize another man or if you’re tempted to fornicate every time you go out on a date, you’re not actually in sin unless you carry out these desires.
