Drastic Changes have Occurred Behind and in Front of the Pulpit

Pastor-Shawn-Oshields_Page-01Rev. Shawn O’Shields, Senior Pastor of Renfrew Baptist Church  in Travelers Rest, was the invited guest speaker at the June 26 dinner meeting of the 16th Regiment, Sons of Confederate Veterans, held at the Phoenix Inn in Greenville.

Pastor O’Shields, a passionate student of the Word of God and Southern History, was asked to compare the Christian Church of 1861 to the Church of 2014.

He said he would talk from the perspective of a Southern Baptist since that was his denomination and leave discussion of other denominations to their own.

Pastor O’Shields is a dynamic speaker, speaking rapidly for a Southerner, skillfully blending humor with hard facts while carefully adhering to Biblical and historical truth.

Shawn O’Shields is a unique pastor serving a unique church. Renfrew Baptist is apparently the only Southern Baptist Church in Greenville County with both an integrated congregation and pulpit.  Renfrew may also be the only Southern Baptist Church anywhere that continues to proudly honor their ancestors with a Confederate Memorial Day Service.

Pastor Responds to Tebow Cancellation of Speaking Engagement

New York Jets Quarterback Tim Tebow had been scheduled to speak at the dedication of Dallas, Texas, First Baptist Church’s new $130 million campus next month.

First Baptist Pastor Robert Jeffress has been a strong advocate for traditional marriage between one man and one woman and has been an uncompromising supporter of Biblical truth.

The liberal media, politicians and some so-called Protestant pastors have attacked Pastor Jeffress for his lack of support and agreement with Muslim, Catholic and Mormon doctrine.

Many people believe that Evanjellyfish Christianity is rapidly displacing Evangelical Christianity in the United States and Britain. A historical analysis of this increasingly popular and trendy adaptation of Christianity reveals surprisingly deep roots and a well-established set of principles.

The first principle of Evanjellyfish Christianity is TOLERANCE. Tolerance is their ultimate, unquestioned virtue. The underlying multiculturalist principle here is that all moral or theological truths are relative and equal no matter what their source. In this chaotic system of theology, one truth is as good as another, and nobody’s truth is ever questioned—unless they believe that there are absolute truths. Believing in absolute truths is intolerant because it implies that some people are in serious error. Having to defend serious error and all sorts of nonsense and to suppress even obvious absolute truths for the sake of tolerance tends to make Evanjellyfish Christians fact and logic averse. Thus emotion always trumps facts and logic in their discourse, usually accompanied by much rambling nonsense.

Greetings to all,

First, I want to express my profound appreciation to President Barak Obama for doing what all of the Republican candidates have not been able to do for months: he unified the Bible-believing church in America in one week over the issue of abortion.

When the President ordered the Catholic Church to provide contraceptives to prevent the birth of new life, he hit a nerve in the heart of every true Catholic and Evangelical.
