Earlier this week, Shane Pruitt shared his thoughts regarding division in the American church, arguing that splitting over secondary issues exposes how “privileged” we are.
Pruitt serves as the National Next Gen Director for the North American Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). He is a husband, father, evangelist, Bible teacher, and author.
The evangelist, who was featured at the popular Winter Jam tour earlier this year, began his Facebook post with a bold headline: “CHURCH DIVISION IS A PRIVILEGE.”
“Let me explain,” Pruitt wrote. “When the Church in America has the ability to fight and split over secondary issues and preferences—it reveals how spoiled, rich, and privileged we really are.”
