Southern Baptists for Abolishing Abortion

Southern Baptists for Abolishing Abortion is a website devoted to mobilizing Southern Baptists to consistently apply their biblical worldview to the issue of abortion:

Southern Baptists, we have a membership of over 50 million men and women and represent over 47,000 churches. It is time for us to rise up with one collective voice, pray for God’s mercy and forgiveness, pray that He would heal our land, and act now to abolish abortion in our nation without exception or compromise. It’s our day to stand.

Capitol Hill Baptist Church Sues District of Columbia

In this Washington Post article, “Prominent evangelical church is the first to sue D.C. over covid-19 worship limits,” Michelle Boorstein writes:

The suit comes at a complicated time for Capitol Hill Baptist, which has no online ministry and says in its suit that worshiping together in person is required for a “biblically ordered church.” The 132-year-old, largely White, conservative congregation has spent much of the year in intense internal conversation about racism, politics, the overwhelming White evangelical support for President Trump, and what it all means for the Christian witness. There have been church book groups discussing White privilege, and clergy this week are launching a teaching series on how to remain close amid disagreements on race and politics.

Neil Shenvi on Critical Theory, Post-Colonialism, and Missions on The Missions Podcast

Neil Shenvi recently appeared on The Missions Podcast to talk about a host of issues.  From the podcast’s website:

Social justice. Critical theory. Post-colonialism. Intersectionality. These issues have divided believers and unbelievers alike in the church over the last few years, and in 2020 the issue is impossible to escape. Is conservative evangelicalism beginning to compromise biblical teaching on complex social issues? And if so, what effect does that have on missions?

Evangelical Third-Way Political Theory and Its Historical Problem

The following was published initially on Twitter here.

That phrase – “…we’ve never known before” frustrates me deeply. Let me start here: Ray & I, as best I can tell from his tweets, see Christian faithfulness in 2020 in profoundly different & significant ways. I do, however, think he is a brother and I want to respect our common confession of faith & him as an older believer to the greatest degree I can. So, my frustrations: This newly discovered, high-minded, third-way-is-faithfulness approach that Ortlund is praising (and that shows up the writings of The Gospel Coalition, David French, Thomas Kidd, etc. – to name some recent examples) is particularly exhausting for those of us in the evangelical camp who were saying we were politically homeless years and years and years ago.

The Dead-end of Research Justice (Denny Burk)

In this post, Denny Burk comments on the topic of research justice in the new book, Cynical Theories: How Activist Scholarship Made Everything about Race, Gender, and Identity–and Why This Harms Everybody, writing, “Critical Theory values epistemic diversity—as if spiritism or superstition are just as valid as rational and evidentiary forms of knowing. But we must insist that reason and evidence are universal values, not white ones. They are universal because they are gifts from God to be used for his glory, not to be discarded as racist constructs.”
