Why Southern Reformation?

Some may wonder why the name of this blog is Southern Reformation. In some ways the answer is simple; in other ways the answer is the furthest thing from simple you can imagine.

I am proudly, and deeply, Southern. My late Grandfather would have said, “That boy’s Southern to the bone.” And he would have been right!

You see, the South is slam full of churches; it’s covered up with them like ticks on a redbone hound, in fact. But the churches of the South are largely gospel-less gatherings that largely teach what Christian Smith has called therapeutic moralistic deism. Our Southern churches have begun the dangerous process of assuming the gospel; once that happens, you’re only one generation away from apostasy.

The burden of this blog is to call the churches of the Southern United States back to a full-orbed presentation of the gospel, specifically as the Word is ministered from the pulpit. This blog exists to help pastors; if there is any way at all that I can be of assistance to you, please comment anywhere on the blog and I will respond just as quickly as possible.

  1. While I am not a pastor, for whom you state this blog exists, maybe you would like the name of a pastor that could help you in your mission of Southern Reformation. Perhaps you are already aware of him: Pastor John Weaver of Georgia. His sermons on “Why the South Must Rise Again” are most excellent. https://www.facebook.com/pages/Dominion-Ministry/217170895010794?sk=page_map

    Another pastor is Thomas C. McConnell of Rayville, Missouri, who is reformed Presbyterian. Both Pastors Weaver and McConnell are regular guests at the Old Paths Conference at the church at Kaweah in Kaweah, Calif. One of the most endearing traits of Pastor Weaver is his thorough knowledge of Southern history, the TRUE story, not that necessarily written by the victors. He is the most knowledgeable Man of God regarding the Christian and Civil Govt. that God has gifted His people with in this era. Pastor McConnell is thorough with his teaching on Biblical Agrarianism and cuts to the marrow with his indictments of the current dominance of pagan agrarianism.

    My husband Mike and I just returned last week from this year’s conference, and we would love to find a church that embraces these teachings. http://thechurchatkaweah.org/

  4. Yeah, I was born in Georgia and raised in Florida. I’m a southern cracker. I agree with your assessment. The south is full of churches–and many of them are liberal. It took me awhile to realize that Pentecostalism is a heresy. God is sovereign. See my blog at Reasonable Christian

"I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. For such persons do not serve our Lord Christ, but their own appetites, and by smooth talk and flattery they deceive the hearts of the naïve." (Romans 16:17-18) Please read "The Comments Policy."
