Russell Moore: From Moral Majority to 'Prophetic Minority'
'The Bible Belt is collapsing," says Russell Moore. Oddly, the incoming president of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission doesn't seem upset. In a recent visit to The Wall Street Journal, Mr. Moore explains that he thinks the Bible Belt's decline may be "bad for America, but it's good for the church."

Why? Because "we are no longer the moral majority. We are a prophetic minority."

The phrase is arresting coming from such a prominent religious leader—akin to a general who says the Army has shrunk to the point it can no longer fight two wars. A youthful 41, Mr. Moore is among the leaders of a new generation who think that evangelicals need to recognize that their values no longer define mainstream American culture the way they did 50 or even 20 years ago. ...

Chris, one thing that Mr. Moore did bring up is the problem of abortions that are not done in the "standard" way, off the books if you will. This article about what is happening in Nebraska Report: Abortions in Nebraska fall to 20-year low also reflect on that.

So, this article did have relevance on that problem, though abortion has much more to do with the inner workings of a woman's character than it does with external measures to try to control actions.

And yet, Mr. Moore continually refers to Jesus as an illegal immigrant. Someone who blatantly disregarded laws enacted by governments that were put in place by God Himself. Just because Mr. Moore calls himself a baptist doesn't make it so.

Baptist churches have always stated that Jesus is sinless. Dr. Moore is baptist. Therefore, Russell would believe that Jesus didn't sin.

Jim said "He makes some interesting comments on politics and abortion. He is good at talking at of both sides of his mouth"

Jim's right, you've got to be conflicted these days to take a stand for Scriptural morality and to have worked for a democrat congressman which by default are opposed to most things biblical. Let's hope he's since seen the light.

One of those WSJ articles! It's not a bad article, in fact fairly good, but like them all somewhat ephemeral I'm affraid. Here's an excerpt about Mr. Moore who will replace Richard Land in the SBC hierarchy.

'The easy days of mobilizing a ready-made majority are gone. By "prophetic minority," he means that Christians must return to the days when they were a moral example and vanguard—defenders of belief in a larger unbelieving culture. He views this less as a defeat than as an opportunity.'

He makes some interesting comments on politics and abortion. He is good at talking at of both sides of his mouth, however, q.v., Is There a Future for Israel? as to what Gil Rugh has to say on the subject, Israel & the Church are Different People. Or for that matter, some printed material, Does God Have a Future for Israel?: A Study of Romans 11.
