In 1979 the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) formally entered into the “Battle for the Bible” that was raging within North American evangelicalism. Over the next 15 years, the SBC was returned to its historic commitments on the inerrancy and infallibility of Scripture. Many of those who resisted this conservative resurgence were driven by religiously progressive convictions.
Their advocacy of ideals and positions that developed out of radical feminism and deviant sexualities were exposed and refuted by those holding to orthodox, Protestant and historic Baptist positions on the issues.
Now, 25 years after the clear success of the conservative resurgence, it seems like evangelicals, including Southern Baptists, are in danger of loosening their commitments to those basic, Christian commitments. Dangerous ideologies like Critical Theory and Intersectionality are gaining inroads into the thinking of some leaders, churches and organizations.
These ideologies are even being promoted among some evangelicals as reliable analytical tools that can assist our understandings and efforts in gospel ministry.
Your financial support will help us make this film available to pastors and churches in the Southern Baptist Convention and beyond. We believe that, as God’s people are informed about the nature of the worldly philosophies that are infiltrating evangelical congregations and institutions today, they will rally to the call to “contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints” (Jude 3). Thank you for investing in this vitally important effort.
Estimated delivery of incentive items is February 2019.
