Title: Southern Baptists want to change their name to "Great Commission Baptists" because the word "Southern" is triggering (Not satire)

Don't do it, SBC. Don't feed the Woke Monster.

From the Washington Post today:

Leaders in the Southern Baptist Convention are increasingly dropping the "Southern" part of their Baptist name, calling it a potentially painful reminder of the convention's historic role in support of slavery.

The 50,000 Baptist churches in the convention are autonomous and can still choose to refer to themselves as "Southern Baptist" or "SBC." But in his first interview on the topic, convention president J.D. Greear said momentum has been building to adopt the name "Great Commission Baptists," both because of the racial reckoning underway in the United States and because many have long seen the "Southern Baptist" name as too regional for a global group of believers.

"Our Lord Jesus was not a White Southerner but a brown-skinned Middle Eastern refugee," said Greear, who this summer used the phrase "Black lives matter" in a presidential address and announced that he would retire a historic gavel named for an enslaver. "Every week we gather to worship a savior who died for the whole world, not one part of it. What we call ourselves should make that clear."

The shift takes place at the end of a summer of racial unrest, when Confederate monuments have been removed, schools have been renamed and Washington D.C. has decided to change the name of its football team.

"Our Lord Jesus was not a white Southerner but a brown-skinned Middle Eastern refugee," Greear said. OK? So? What point is he trying to make? Are they going to rename the denomination "Brown-Skinned Middle Eastern Refugee Baptist Convention?"

And don't try to feed me that "the name is too regional" garbage. That is NOT the reason why and everybody knows it.

More from the article:

The convention will continue to legally operate as the SBC, officials said, citing the hefty cost and complexity of a legal name change. But since August, the its website has declared "We Are Great Commission Baptists," an alternative moniker that refers to the verses in the New Testament when Jesus commands his disciples to baptize believers in all nations.

Ronnie Floyd, who heads the convention's executive committee and was on President Trump's evangelical advisory council during the 2016 campaign, addressed fellow Baptists in a recent letter as "Great Commission Baptists." Greear says hundreds of church leaders in several Southern states have committed to using the alternate name. And Greear announced Monday that his church will use it as well, and that the theme of next year's annual gathering for the denomination will be "We are Great Commission Baptists."

If the largest Protestant denomination in the United States, which has been historically conservative, buckles under the weight of Wokism, the implications will be enormous.

What's going to come next? Doesn't the SBC know they know that the more they give in the more they will be EXPECTED to give in?? THIS IS A SLIPPERY SLOPE.

Say it with me:

The Woke Monster can never be satisfied. The more you feed it, the hungrier it gets.

calling it a potentially painful reminder of the convention's historic role in support of slavery.

The Catholic church apologized for its treatment of Galileo. It took some 300 years but they did manage to do it without renaming Vatican City.

Changing the SBC name makes it look like they are running away instead of apologizing for whatever misdeeds the church endorsed in the past.

I know J.D. from long ago. He is a man of honor and integrity. In fact, guys like him don't usually make it into places of such high leadership.

He has, however, made two massive mistakes...

The first is recognizing Marxist BLM. He should have waited but he reacted when emotions were ruling the day, rather than wisdom.

The second is changing the name of the SBC. Which is akin to "removing the ancient landmark, which thy fathers have set". All this will do is lead to more confusion.

He needs to correct his mistakes (renounce BLM), stop this foolish name changing business, and just stand down.

I'm sure there are plenty of racial divides that need to be addressed in the SBC, but the last time I was in a SBC church (20 years ago when I preached my father's funeral), there were a fair number of black folks there, who were members of the church, and loved.
