Short Take from The Christian Worldview program on Incitement Impeachment and the Wickedness of Slander.

Listen to the entire program here:


Here is another short take from The Christian Worldview with David Wheaton. The head of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, the ERLC, his name is Russell Moore, maybe you've heard of him. He tweeted this past week and said, Mr. President, people are dead. The Capitol is ransacked. There are 12 dangerous days for our country left. Could you please step down and let our country heal?

That was his tweet. Russell Moore, the head of the Southern Baptist Convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, which is a public policy, political really, political arm of the Southern Baptist Convention, I believe they're based in Washington, DC, and they advocate for the Southern Baptist Convention on certain issues. He also said, Russell Moore said in an email, if I were the president, I would resign. If I were the vice president, I would assemble the cabinet in accordance with the 25th Amendment. If I were a member of Congress, I would vote to impeach. And if I were a US Senator, I would vote to convict. And I would be willing, if necessary, to lose my seat to do so. As a matter of fact, I am willing, if necessary, to lose this seat.

Just think about that. The head of an evangelical organization making accusation against the president, joining with the left, by the way, it's not just making accusation but joining with the left and the worldview they stand for. As a matter of fact, the Capstone Report had an article about Russell Moore supporting the impeachment of the president. It says, yes, this is a dog bites man story. In other words, why is this, this story doesn't have much, you know, a common story.

What's the big deal? A Democrat, that's what Russell Moore has claimed to be, calls for the resignation of the Republican president. However, since Southern Baptists pay this Democrat's salary, you should know about it. Healing, Russell Moore called for healing?

Please. Russell Moore's demand will only divide the country further. It will also divide the church. Of course, this is what Russell Moore wants, the Capstone Report writes. He staged the abomination of the MLK50 conference, the Martin Luther King, kind of the social justice woke conference, that trafficked in racial identity politics and the grievance gospel. If you are Southern Baptist, he's referring to, then you pay Russell Moore's salary. You should stop tithing and giving offerings of any sort until the Southern Baptist Convention fires this Democrat.

This is the Capstone Report writing this, not me. There is no room in a church for someone who, while employed by Al Mohler, the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, yes, that quote, conservative theologian, he puts it in quotes, bragged to people that he was a Democrat. That was Russell Moore bragging to people he's a Democrat.

Then the article goes on to say how inconceivable it is for a professing born-again Christian to support the party where one of their sacraments is the killing of the unborn. So this is what some of the accusations flying around this past week were taking place. But why is it a false accusation?

Is there any truth to these accusations against the president? Well, you have to define terms, I think, first of all. What is incitement? Incitement, dictionary definitions here, incitement means the provocation of unlawful behavior, and an insurrection is defined as a quote, violent uprising against an authority or government. Well, you could certainly say what happened to the Capitol was an insurrection. It was a violent uprising against the government that day. It's even sedition. Sedition is defined as incitement of discontent or rebellion against the government. You could say it was that. A riot is defined as a noisy, violent public disorder caused by a group or a crowd of persons.

It certainly was that, it was mayhem. But then the level the charges of incitement by the president is, I believe, as you read his speech and the rally he made that day, much too far of a leap, at least for me. As I have looked at his speech, I don't see any incitement at all.

The president certainly did lay out all the evidence that he has for voting fraud, and it is very extensive. We have linked right now on our website,, that speech as we did last week. I would really encourage you to read the speech.

Now for a second reason. Last week I wanted you to read it just to get an idea of the level of voting fraud in this past election that was being alleged by the president. But now I want you to read it for a second reason, to look for what you can pull out as him inciting people to breach the Capitol. I don't see any of that in there. As a matter of fact, to the contrary, the things the president was saying, he clearly said there should be a peaceable walk to the Capitol.
