What did the trustees know and when did they know?
The SBC presidential candidate calls for transparency and reform in response to doctrinal errors found in churches affiliated with the North American Mission Board.
Southern Baptist Convention presidential candidate Randy Adams called for transparency and reform following revelations that North American Mission Board (NAMB) affiliate church plants included at least five churches with female pastors. The history of church planting was shattered by Conservative resurgence: voice.
Randy Adams said: “Today’s post by @voices_cr about several @NAMB_SBC church plants that clearly appear to violate BFM2000 should raise concerns and further illustrate why we need transparency and partnership at local, state and national level. Here’s whyâ¦ As recently as last week, administrators said they know everything NAMB does. Are they aware of this? If not, could it be that they don’t know everything that is going on at NAMB?“
Adams refers to the now infamous quote from NAMB Chairman of the Board, Danny de Armas, saying that the directors are supportive of everything that is happening at NAMB.
He said: âSeveral directors have expressed frustration with the idea that some are arguing that the directors at NAMB are not doing our job and that we don’t know what is going on at NAMB. Not only do we know what is going on, in most cases we have initiated and in all cases we affirm the strategies and changes that are implemented.
This forces us to ask ourselves the question: What did the trustees know and when did they know?
We must have answers.
So, Mr. Chairman of the Board of Trustees, have you and your fellow Trustees initiated these strategies leading to churches with female pastors?
If not, did you know them?
If not, then maybe you are not as familiar with things as your statement would have us believe.
As we noted earlier today, of what use are trustees if they do not apply doctrinal standards to the SBC entities they oversee?
Now it’s just a layman talking, but the doctrine seems to be pretty important.
If you can’t trust the trustees on doctrine, how can we trust them on business matters?
This incompetence of administrators extends to almost all SBC institutions. The seminars are trash fires ranging from known liars at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary to heresy promoting SEBTS and even SBTS sacking conservatives while promoting Woke. And there are obvious ethical issues as the directors of LifeWay were not involved in questionable severance pay for the failed former CEO of LifeWay. Plus, ERLC allows Russell Moore instead of controlling him. And this is not an exhaustive list of the errors and incompetence of your Southern Baptist Convention entities.
After all of this, who in their right mind would trust administrators?
The responsibility begins now. Demand a response to what and when NAMB administrators knew.
