When you go woke, your theology gets broke

by Mike Ratlif

39 And He went a little beyond them, and fell on His face and prayed, saying, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from Me; yet not as I will, but as You will.” Matthew 26:39 (NASB) 

A few months ago, on Good Friday, Dr. Josh Buice posted the following on Twitter:

As We behold the slain Christ on the cruel cross on this Good Friday, we must never forget the truth!

Jesus was not the victim of injustice.

Jesus was the predestined substitute for sinners crushed under the wrath of the Father in order to fulfill holy justice.

Isaiah 53:10

Here is Isaiah 53:10:

10 But the LORD was pleased
To crush Him, putting Him to grief;
If He would render Himself as a guilt offering,
He will see His offspring,
He will prolong His days,
And the good pleasure of the LORD will prosper in His hand. Isaiah 53:10 (NASB) 

This started a firestorm reaction from several theologians from the largest SBC Seminaries such as Southern, Southeastern, and Southwestern.  Others who objected were pastors. What was their complaint? They accused Dr. Buice of heresy because his doctrinally correct statement violated their Wokism theology that sees everything through the eyes of Critical Race Theory, that is, Social Justice. Their responses to this statement even showed that they no longer had a clear understanding of the doctrine of the Trinity.

Here is a video that does a much better job of explaining this than I could ever do.

I have listened not only to this, but also to Tom Ascol and others who have not given up on the SBC. They are actually optimistic that there are growing numbers of conservative SBC members who are not going to stand for the liberal nonsense that the SBC elites have been about for quite some time. However, what we must do is pray that God’s Truth will prevail, that what is being hidden will be revealed and that these men in leadership positions in our denomination, seminaries and churches who are actually hardened in unbelief will be exposed unless they repent.

Soli Deo Gloria!

  1. The difference between the SBC elites and the SBC churches like our’s is night and day. The elites are in the Kingdom of Darkness because they are tied to the world and its ways. We are the exact opposite, we have to be.

  2. Reblogged this on Talk Wisdom and commented:
    I knew about the “Social Justice” angle of the SBC “elites.” They have been very vocal about SJ for years. But finding out that they are now embracing “Critical Race Theory” is disheartening to learn, and it is causing a major riff (and possible split) within the denomination. The title and post by Mike Ratliff caught my eye, since “woke-ism” has been the new buzzword in politics. People who have attempted to just have a discussion about the beliefs of those in the woke crowd vs. what others think, mostly get the “I don’t want to hear it” reaction. Well, Mike Ratliff nails it with his title, and explanation in this post! Be sure to watch the video link within Mike’s post. It’s excellent! As Christians, we are to be discerning in order to recognize truth from error, just like the Bereans.

  3. I think the answer might be Mike Stone and the Conservative Baptist Network breaking off from the SBC. Just my opinion. Have a nice day.
