David Schrock, SBC pastor and professor, over at Via Emmaus offers a helpful analysis of the SBC 2021 annual meeting. He offers 3 reasons for conventional concern:
- First, the unwillingness to clarify the language of Resolution 1 evidences an aversion to the task of doing theology.
- Second, the unwillingness to name Critical Race Theory highlights a commitment to superficial unity over biblical truth.
- Third, the unwillingness to engage matters theologically reveals an ongoing malady in the health of the convention.
Schrock expounds upon each point here. His full analysis is worthy of your time.
