Critical Theory, The SBC, and The Local Church with Neil Shenvi

On this episode of the new CR:V Podcast apologist Neil Shenvi sits down with Jeff Wright to talk about Critical Theory’s impact on the world, Christianity, the Southern Baptist Convention, and the local church.

Neil offers analysis of the origins and ideology of Critical Theory (and it’s derivative, Critical Race Theory) as well as the controversial Resolution 9 coming out of the 2019 SBC Annual Meeting in Birmingham, and how church members should respond when and if they see Critical Theory making inroads into their local church – plus more!

Is Preaching the Gospel Sufficient to Combat Racism?

It seems that we could generate much more light, instead of mere heat, if we would take the time to define the terms of our controversies. In the past few years, a social media divide has emerged among Christians who argue, on the one hand, that we must address racism by preaching the gospel, and those who argue, on the other hand, that while the gospel must remain central to the church, wider forms of social activism are also necessary as legitimate implications of the gospel. This common method of framing the debate is actually too crude to be helpful. What we need is a nuanced look at what, exactly, is being argued on each side.

“Owing Nothing to Anyone” (Hohn Cho)

In this post, non-SBC author Hohn Cho writes, “it is at best disconcerting when certain people point their fingers at me, and others like me, and claim that we owe them something, when to the best of my knowledge and recollection, I owe nothing to these folks. In many cases, I’ve never even met them before! How and when does this happen? Well, in the United States, we often see it in the context of discussions about ‘privilege’ and social justice.”

“Drew Brees Involuntarily and Interminably Catechized by the Church of the Left: You’re next.” (Mark Devine)

In this article, Mark Devine addresses a statement from Drew Brees and explains, “Brees’ words violated dogmas of the largest, fastest growing religious group in America — the Church of the Left — the Woke Church. Once he’d uttered those words, church inquisitors cornered Brees with mechanical efficiency and his public doctrinal examination commenced.”

Women Preachers in the Southern Baptist Convention: We Should Be Worried (Part 1)

There’s a common misconception going around in some circles that anyone who professes Christ yet believes women can be called to the pastorate or preach to men cannot be a true Christian. This is demonstrably untrue. When people believe that women can be preachers called by God it doesn’t necessarily mean those people aren’t Christian, it just means they’re wrong.

But what do the churches of the Southern Baptist Convention think? Southern Baptists reached an agreement about this issue a long time ago and they believe it’s not only theologically incorrect to have women preach, but sinful for women to take up the role of preaching as it goes against explicit commands given in God’s word. This is why women preaching in the Southern Baptist Convention is such an obviously divisive issue.

Clarifying the Gospel, Part 2: How the Apostles Preached Christ

[See Part 1 of this series.]

Although the salvation accomplished by the cross work of Jesus Christ entails multiple dimensions of deliverance—from the power of Satan, from the dominion of sin, from this present evil age, etc.—there is no greater deliverance accomplished by Christ than that which is from the looming judgment of God over humanity. Having surveyed this theme in the Old Testament, my purpose in this installment is to show that the preaching of the gospel by the apostles in the book of Acts demonstrates the same truth.
