10:46 PM - Ronnie Floyd, the SBC, and Contemporary Wolves
In yesterday's article (“Pope Francis Joins Lecrae, Hillsong at Historic 1 Million-Strong ‘Together 2016' DC Event,” The Christian Post, June 7, 2016), I read something that sufficiently explains (for me anyway) why Ronnie Floyd [pictured] and the Southern Baptist Convention have got problems (“Floyd: A few thoughts about Southern Baptist statistics,” Baptist Press News, June 8, 2016).
He claims that the decline has to do with eight or nine thousand SBC church pastors disobeying protocols and not filling out their Annual Church Profile Reports, but that’s not the problem. It’s got everything to do with fifty or so thousand SBC churches being given over to apostasy, by God Himself, because of their willful compromise and disobedience to His Word.
I read in the article yesterday that “Together 2016 will be held on July 16 at the National Mall in Washington, D.C.,” and that “confirmed guest speakers and artists include: Hillsong United, Kari Jobe, Francis Chan, Lecrae, Nick Hall, Passion, Crowder, Kirk Franklin, Ravi Zacharias, Jeremy Camp, Andy Mineo, Michael W. Smith, Lauren Daigle, Christine Caine, Mark Batterson, Matthew West, Jo Saxton, Mike Kelsey, Casting Crowns, John K. Jenkins Sr., Josh McDowell, Laurel Bunker, Luis Palau, Tedashii, Tasha Cobbs, Lacey Sturm, York Moore, Trip Lee, Samuel Rodriguez, RONNIE FLOYD, Reid Saunders, Bob Lenz, Jose Zayas, Jennie Allen, Nabeel Qureshi, Ann Voskamp, KB, Christine D'Clario, Matt Maher, Sammy Wanyonyi, Lindsey Nobles, Amena Brown, and Josh Brewer.”
I also read in that article that, “Adding his name to the lineup of prominent guest speakers and musicians is POPE FRANCIS, who will deliver a video message addressing the crowd.”
Does Ronnie Floyd ever read a Bible? Even a modern, corrupt translation will tell you that you can’t make yourself an enemy of God and expect everything to go well.
