Dr. Voddie Baucham is a new member of the Steering Council of the Conservative Baptist Network. He was kind enough to answer a few questions about the state of the SBC, why he joined the CBN, and upcoming projects. We think you will find the answers informative as the Southern Baptist Convention prepares for another heated Annual Meeting.
A quick Q&A with Dr. Voddie Baucham on his joining the Steering Council of the Conservative Baptist Network.
Capstone Report: What led you to join CBN?
Dr. Voddie Baucham: “I have been watching recent events in the SBC with both interest and concern. I love the SBC. I owe a great debt to the SBC. I was educated, discipled, and nurtured in the SBC. I am saddened by the recent ‘awokening’ among Convention elites. The unwillingness to name, let alone address CRT at the Convention last year was shameful. The refusal to acknowledge and/or address the Ed Litton scandal was sinful, and quite revealing (as was the refusal of the press to pursue the issue). Then to discover that a number of SBC elites were having their sermons written by the Docent group, SBC Seminaries were continuing to harbor professors who promote Cultural Marxism, CRT, and Liberation Theology (among other errors), not to mention the scandalous leftward drift of the ERLC. Things are unraveling in the SBC… AGAIN!”
“When Rod Martin approached me to see 1) if I was still part of the SBC, and 2) if I would be willing to play a role in the CBN, I was happy to lend a hand in hopes of playing a role in rescuing the Convention that has meant so much to me. My sending church is SBC, so I am still part of the family. I am not sure what I will be able to contribute, but I am not the kind of guy who calls others to arms then sits on the sidelines.”
