Tennessee Baptists Have a Board Nomination Policy That Openly Discriminates Against White Males

The world’s current obsession as it relates to social justice is “equity.” Succinctly stated, equity is equality of outcome, as opposed to equality, which is equal treatment. In other words, equity ensures that all people are treated how they need to be treated to achieve the same results.

In the social justice movement, this means such things as affirmative action, race-based incentives, and positive discrimination. People are not treated as equals. We see this played out in such things as wealth redistribution (which the Bible refers to as theft) and intersectionality (which the Bible refers to as partiality). Equity is an anti-gospel ideology and should be flatly rejected by the Church.

Yet, despite the unbiblical concept that masquerades as something good, many Evangelicals are either knowingly or unknowingly promoting this. Matt Chandler, a woke Southern Baptist mega-church pastor is famous for saying that he would hire an “African American 7” over an “Anglo 8” for no other reason than the color of their skin.

But the Evangelical woke movement isn’t about the gospel, it’s about fixing the world’s problems — real or perceived — in an effort to stay relevant to the culture and promote growth in the pews of dying denominations.

And this is exactly what’s going on with many Southern Baptist entities from the seminaries to the ERLC to individual churches—and even its various missions boards. And the state conventions are right there behind them. The Tennessee Baptists Mission Board (TBMB), in fact, has a hiring practice that will sidestep, if I may borrow the words of Matt Chandler, Anglo 8’s in favor of African American 7’s, in order to “increase the ethnic, gender and vocational diversity on Boards and Committees,” according to its website.

The TBMB clearly states on its “committee preferences for nominations” that it gives preference to people based on their skin color and gender. Of course, the Bible tells us that we should show no partiality—but who says these people care what the Bible says anyways?
