    A new Conservative Baptist Network has been formed within the Southern Baptist Convention. Their website begins with five bullet points:
    • The Network affirms the longstanding Baptist beliefs as expressed in the Baptist Faith and Message 2000.
    • The Network affirms the inerrancy, supremacy, and sufficiency of the Bible in all facets of life and application.
    • The Network affirms religious liberty and encourages Christian individuals and churches to influence the culture by engaging in the public policy process and demonstrating their patriotism.
    • The Network rejects various unbiblical ideologies currently affecting the Southern Baptist Convention such as Critical Race Theory, intersectionality, and social justice.
    • The Network is committed to seeing the SBC function biblically — efficiently, and strategically — believing Convention entities and leadership are accountable to and encouraged by the autonomous, local churches that cooperate together.
    It also says there will be a "Launch Event" June 8, 2020.

    Christian Post reports this:
    Conservative Baptist Network launched amid 'woke' trend in SBC, emphasizing Scripture, evangelism

    Well I haven’t noticed any “woke” movement in my Church. I can imagine Satan has wiggled his way into the SBC tho.

    I suppose I should get out more

    Dave Miller at SBC Voices does not like the new CBN.

    Of course he doesnt. Further, he downplays Russel Moores attacks on those who support and or voted for Trump. If you offer any criticsm on his blog he and his minions will come after you in full force. That is if ole Dave doesnt delete your post. They fully support this feaux racism in the convention and crt as well as intersectionality

    They had a similar group back in the late 60's and early 70's. I forget the exact name but it did have the name conservative in it- does anyone remember?

    And importantly:

    WE ARE NOT

    • A new denomination
    • A blog or social media page existing solely to air grievances
    • A competitor with other like-minded ministries
    • A group exclusive to one soteriological view or another

    Yes, been there, done that -- experienced the wrath of (some of) the g.o.d.s. of SBC Voices (Good Old Dave and Good Old Debbie) when I had the audacity to question some of the accuracy of The Butler when Dave recommended it for the glorious education of everyone. They implied I was a racist for mentioning a "based on a true story" movie might not be the true story, and did not have either the guts, honesty, or courtesy to apologize when shown to be wrong.

    Just noticed something else about the two articles at SBC Voices concerning the Conservative Baptist Network. They tell readers what they want them to think, but are unwilling or unable to link to the Conservative Baptist Network web site so readers can judge for themselves. (There is not a lot there on the CBN site yet, so there is quite a bit that needs to be filled in about this group. But SBC Voices, Dave Miller especially, wants us to accept their version based on secret conversations they cannot reveal!)

    Yes, yes — the similarly named 'Conservative Baptist Fellowship' which separated from the Northern Baptists in the 1940s, and from other conservatives in the 1960s. It then renamed itself the 'Fundamental Baptist Fellowship', and the Bob Jones University crowd has since become one of its main constituencies:

    Encyclopedia of Southern Baptists (Nashville: Broadman Press, 1971), s.v. "Fundamental Baptist Fellowship":

    [The group began as Northern Baptist Fundamentalist, but over the years became increasingly Southern-fried, to the extent that now it's headquartered near Bob Jones University (both have addresses on the same street: Wade Hampton Boulevard)]

    I am guessing the idea is to say baptists should vote for pro-life republicans. I there anything more being said (unsaid).

    Pro-life is not the only issue - we need to look at many issues

    Right between those two quotes was this very telling bit of shadiness:
    It's important to know that:

    Chuck Kelley is Dorothy Patterson's brother.

    Brad Jurkovich, the spokesman for this reactionary outfit, was brought on to share the platform with Paige Patterson at the recent Pigg conference.
