Whispering Sexually Sin, Ed Litton (SBC)

Rapp Report episode 178

Ed Litton, president of the Southern Baptist Convention, preached a sermon where he said, “In the Bible, sexual sin is whispered, compared to the shout God makes about greed and judgmentalism.”  Andrew and Bud discuss the issue of homosexuality in the Bible and examine if God actually “whispers” about sin especially compared to other sins like greed and judgmentalism. The Bible is clear on its position about homosexuality, even if Ed Litton is not. The discussion focus on the issue that truth matter and theology matters but for Ed Litton of the SBC, it is that the narrative matters.

The problem with Litton’s sermon does not stop with that quote. It seems that much of Litton’s sermon is directly from JD Greer, the previous president of the SBC. The role of a pastor is to study to preach the Word of God. If a pastor is getting his sermon from others then is he neglecting their primary role as a pastor? Did Litton use Greer’s sermon, or could it be that neither of them wrote that sermon by pay for a sermon service?
