(The Christian Post) Renowned Southern Baptist preacher Voddie Baucham, who denounced critical race theory and the social justice movement in his latest book, Fault Lines: The Social Justice Movement and Evangelicalism’s Looming Catastrophe, confirmed Friday that he has been asked to “accept a nomination for SBC President.”
Responding to questions from The Christian Post about the prospect of his nomination, which was first rumored online, Baucham, who considers himself an “outsider” in the halls of power of the nation’s largest Protestant denomination, said he isn’t sure he is eligible to accept the nomination.
“I have indeed been asked to accept a nomination for SBC President. While I am honored to have been asked, I am not sure I am eligible,” Baucham said in a statement. “There are questions about the way church membership is considered for missionaries (SBC Article II and Article VIII).”
