It strikes me that both the SBTS statement & #GC2Summit (while steps forward) are haunted by the myth of evangelical exceptionalism. Everything changed for me when I realized evangelical theology is itself a product of culture, not some pure & unimpeachable exception to it.
The myth of evangelical exceptionalism often keeps evangelicals from seriously interrogating their own theology & culture, even when its fruit turns out rotten. We could acknowledge our individual sins, but we didn’t have cultural/systemic sins like “the world” or “the lost.”
It’s easy to say, “our predecessors abused the Bible to support slavery.” It’s much harder to examine the hermeneutics of the slaveholders and confront the fact that some of the same interpretative practices are being used to marginalize people today.

Me today, watching the #gc2summit on #churchtoo:
Kicking this thing off by singing the lyrics of "Amazing Grace"- a song about the repentance of a middle passage slave trader- I think is going to be pretty emblematic for today.

God loves us even thought we're BAD is probs going to be a major theme. #churchtoo #gc2summit
"Nothing can be healed without you, without your spirit."
