Russell Moore: The Blurring of Theological Lines to Help Promote a “Neo Southern Baptist Convention”

by Richard Haas


I am not a fan of the neo-Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) and where it is going with the promotion of a false sense of unity and reconciliation. The leader of this neo-unity promotion seems to be Dr. Russell Moore. Whether he in promoting false theology/teachers or with a false form racial unity under the guise of reconciliation. Moore seems to be trying to make way for a Cultural Marxist neo-SBC.

First, let me address the issue of race, reconciliation, and Christianity. There is no need for “racial reconciliation” among born-again believers. There are only two races on the planet; those who belong to the world and those who belong to Christ. Since believers have been regenerated and are in Christ, there is no need for any believer to need to be “reconciled” to another believer for past racial reconciliation of past generations. Christ is clear in the Bible that our sins have been and are forgiven at the Cross. If Christ has left our sins at the Cross, we need to be the same. Russell Moore’s racial reconciliation efforts are going against the teaching of the Bible on the forgiveness of sins and true unity in Christ.

As far as theological efforts to support false teachers and problematic teaching Russell Moore and his neo-Southern Baptist Convention again play their hand to the fullest. Moore recently tweeted on Twitter…

While this tweet seems pretty innocuous, it is actually an indicator of Russell Moore’s inability to show proper discernment. Russell Moore along with others in the neo-SBC build themselves up to be the men that churches and Christians should turn to for leadership and discernment. Still, Moore shows little to no discernment abilities by paying homage to Beth Moore. Russell Moore’s complementing of Beth Moore only leads to a blurring of theological lines that unseemly allows for the unofficial “okay” to accept Beth Moore as a worthy teacher, which she is not. I explain why Christians should not follow Beth Moore in a recent article I wrote under our False Teachers section.

It is continuous actions like these by Russell Moore that only go to raise questions about his true intentions as a spokes piece for the Southern Baptist Convention. It is Moore’s cultural neo-Marxist worldview that is so concerned. As discerning biblical believers, we need to be aware of what Moore and others are trying to do within the Southern Baptist Convention by promoting their neo-Marxist theology and worldview.
