In this podcast episode, Christ the Center welcomes, “seminary presidents Albert Mohler and Peter Lillback to discuss the role of the seminary in today’s world.”
The conservative resurgence (CR) of the Southern Baptist Convention was a movement to reclaim institutions for a conservative theology and mission. Preeminent among those institutions marked for reclamation were our six seminaries, which had, to varying degrees, come under the influence of a left-leaning theology in the decades preceding the CR, which began in 1979. As a result of the CR, the seminaries have now been under the leadership of conservatives for a few decades, but state Baptist colleges and universities continue to represent a much wider theological spectrum that includes left, right, and middle. The reason for this discrepancy between seminaries and colleges is, of course, because the CR operated at the level of the national convention, to which only the seminaries are directly accountable. The CR was not an organized movement at the level of state conventions, to which state Baptist colleges and universities are directly accountable.
According to the video description, W. A. Criswell preached this message in San Antonio, Texas for the Southern Baptist Convention Pastors’ Conference in 1988.
In this podcast episode of Christ the Center, non-SBC author, “Darryl G. Hart speaks about J. Gresham Machen’s classic work, Christianity and Liberalism. In becoming familiar [with] the content and historical context of this book, people will gain an understanding not only of twentieth century Presbyterianism but also of global Christianity to a degree. And in contemplating the lessons of this era, people will also be better equipped to meet the challenges that face the contemporary church.”
In this podcast episode, the hosts focus on, “Ideas like: intersectionality, whiteness, and privilege, among others. All of these ideas have their roots in something called Critical Theory. Today, we talk with Neil Shenvi and Matt Warner, who discuss whether Critical Theory is a threat or is something that can be edifying for Christians to employ.”
In this podcast interview, non-SBC speaker Rosaria Butterfield explains, “Gay Christianity is a different religion. I’m not standing in the same forest with Greg Johnson and Wes Hill and Nate Collins looking at different angles of the trees, I’m in a different forest altogether.”
According to the Youtube description, Battle For The Minds is a “[d]ocumentary about Fundamentalist Takeover of the Southern Baptist Convention and their attempt to keep women out of the ministry.”
In this thread, Josh Daws addresses what is, “a common misconception that the concern about Critical Theory in the church is *really* about promoting Trumpism and right-wing politics.”
