Jared Moore has asked us to remove his posts. There are a handful, like this article, which we’ve turned into a summary and left the comments section posted.
On May 25, 2017, in the midst of controversy surrounding the ERLC, Jared Moore advocated a special offering taken up specifically for the ERLC:
The church I pastor, Cumberland Homesteads Baptist Church in Crossville, TN, is planning to take up an offering for the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) on June 4, 2017. I want to encourage your church to do the same (Add it to your Church Calendar).
Jared explained some of his reasoning:
Who leads the ERLC? The ERLC President is Dr. Russell Moore. He has courageously and faithfully lead the ERLC since 2013. He has lead the ERLC to speak and act in accordance with our confession (BF&M2K, especially Article XVII. Religious Liberty), to carry out their responsibilities in accordance with the ministry statement approved by Southern Baptists… By all accounts, he is a faithful Christian, husband, father, Southern Baptist, leader, and preacher of the gospel of Jesus Christ. God has used him mightily and I look forward to seeing how God uses him and the ERLC in the future.
Follow in the comments section as some who are ERLC supporters thought this was an ill-conceived idea.
