In the words of Yogi Berra, “It’s like déjà vu all over again.” Just when you thought churches were starting to address real issues like abuse and unhealthy leadership, the Southern Baptist Convention disfellowships Saddleback Church for hiring female clergy. Just when you thought our racial sensitivity was increasing, Scott Adams takes to YouTube for a wild rant that spews white nationalism. Is there hope of things getting better, or are we sliding further down a slippery slope?

This week on The Bulletin, hosts Mike Cosper and editor in chief Russell Moore discuss the dangers that come with majoring on the minors and missing the majors altogether. Conversation begins with incisive critique of the SBC’s recent decision to remove Saddleback Church from its rosters and flows naturally into talk about FOX News executives’ deception about the 2020 election. The episode ends with critique of Scott Adams of Dilbert fame and those who unabashedly stand beside voices calling for white nationalism. Tune in for lively discussion about racism, church conflict and lying media that’s anything but déjà vu.
