NO ISSUE HAS ROCKED THE SBC AND OTHER DENOMINATIONS AS DEEPLY AS THE REVELATIONS OF CRITICAL THEORY BEING TAUGHT ON SEMINARY CAMPUSES. THE FALSE GOSPEL INFILTRATION MANIFEST ITSELF IN MANY WAYS YET NONE SO DAMNING AS THE GENDER AND QUEER THEORY BEHIND REVOICE FROM SBTS IN LOUSIVILLE KY.
Rev Thomas Littleton
As 2020 drew to a close Russell Moore’s ERLC finally, after years have denial, shuffling, and lying to Baptist messengers in Dallas TX -to the media and about this writer- TOOK OWNERSHIP OF REVOICE founder Nate Collins. Full ownership came when ERLC released its new “Parents Guide to Teaching Your Kids About Gender”. The document repeatedly quotes Nate Collins the Revoice founders book ” All but Invisible: Exploring Identity Questions at the Intersection of Faith, Gender, and Sexuality.”

The first quote is the 4th footnoted source VERY early in the document and is one of 5 Collins Quotes . In fact Nate Collins is one of the MOST QUOTED SOURCES of the GENDER guide for parents in spite of the Revoice controversy and his belief and SBTS writings that “virgin” is proof of a secondary or third gender in the New Testament. Recall Revoice founder Collins was teaching New Testament at Albert Mohler’s SBTS at the time he wrote the book quoted in the ERLC guide. At least now- at long last we can see full ownership of the SBTS/ERLC role in producing Revoice.
Starting on page 47 of the footnotes:
4 See Nate Collins, All but Invisible: Exploring Identity Questions at the
Intersection of Faith, Gender, and Sexuality, (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 2017), 208.
7 Collins, All but Invisible, 212.
23 Collins, All but Invisible, 218–19.
26 Collins, All but Invisible, 220. Also see Walker, God and the Transgender
38 Collins, All but Invisible, 9.
ERLC’s Andrew Walker, SEBTS/ Liberty Universities Karen Swallow Prior and Russell Moore himself are also used as sources for the “Parents Guide to Teaching Your Children About Gender”.
Why is this so revealing? Collins was disowned by his fellow SBTS mentors after Revoice LGBT+ Thriving in Historic Christian Tradition made it’s bow in April/ late May 2018 .Revoice blew up into a major controversy for the SBC and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. The problem was the movement and upcoming July 2018 Revoice conference featured a celebration of “Queer Theory and The Treasures of Queer Culture and Queer Literature.” Revoice even discussed in one breakout session the “Treasures of Queer Culture that will be brought into the New Jerusalem”.
Collins also promotes the “Idolatry of the Nuclear Family ” from Janet Fishburn of hard left and feminist theory theology from Drew Divinity School. Russell Moore and his ERLC LGBTQ advocate Sam Allberry have also promoted the feminist theologians ideology that the “nuclear family is a idol and must be “REDEFINED ” by the liberal church.
“REDEFINING FAMILY THE SBC “PROPHET” -MOORE MAY BE PROVING HIMSELF AN EVANGELICAL PARIAH.”

ERLC AND RUSSELL MOORE DENIALS ARE NOW PROVEN TOTAL LIES
This writer asked Russell Moore personally in an interview during the 2018 Dallas SBC annual meetings about Revoice concerns and that fact Revoice had it’s origins at SBTS and that Moore’s ERLC fellow Karen Swallow Prior, who is quoted in the Parents Guide as well, had promoted Revoice on it’s website. Moore then lied to the entire SBC 2018 Annual gathering when asked from the floor about Revoice .After this interview Moore still denied any knowledge of Revoice, jumping quickly to divert and ask for prayer for his friend Prior who had recently been “hit by a bus” in Nashville.
This Writer was no longer in the building at this point at the SBC Dallas meetings because the Moore ERLC staffer who was witness to and attempted to prevent the previous days interview about Revoice concerns had (allegedly ) lied to the Dallas Police providing security for the event and had this writer removed from the Convention building hours before Moore took the Stage for the ERLC report the events closing day.

each. This involves my self-understanding—how I think about myself.2

YOU CAN READ MORE ABOUT THE REVOICE HERESY AND THE CONTROVERSY SURROUDNING IT HERE:
There are over 40 articles on Revoice on the Thirty Pieces of Silver page and doubtless this story is not over.
When Albert Mohler- Russell Moore and Nate Collins mentor finally mentioned Nates Collins in his August 2nd 2018 article “condemning” Revoice – Mohler mentions Nate Collins 9 times but never admits that Collins is a long time SBTS student. for almost 15 years, or that Collins Father Chip was a teacher at SBTS undergrad Boyce College. Mohler has never admitted that Collins wrote his Dissertation for SBTS alleging that the New Testament use of the word Virgin is proof of the existence of a secondary or “Third Gender” . Nor has Mohler ever admitted that Collins wrote the book the ERLC “Parents Guide” is now using as a resource for it’s officla ERLC “resource” while teaching New Testament at SBTS Mohler’s flagship Baptist Seminary SBTS.
See the August 2 2018 article here and notice the deceptive shuffle.
Prior to this Aug 2nd Mohler article no Baptist writer working under Mohler, nor TGC writer Kevin DeYoung (also quoted in the ERLC guide) had ever mentioned Nate Collins Revoice founder by name even though all these writers knew him from SBTS, ETS presentations, and all are fellow TGC contributors. This is all ignored – and even including the reality that it was Nate Collins who wrote the 2013 review of ERLC/ TGC own inhouse LGBTQ advocate Sam Allberry’s book “Is God Anti Gay”.
Russell Moore has lied to Baptist for years denying Revoice . Now he and his ERLC own it and want to recommend its founders book to Parents for the all important discussions on Gender. Never mind that Collins is a self identified “Gay man in a mixed orientation marriage” and his SBTS work shows he believes and promotes that Virgin is a Third ( SECONDARY) Gender in the New Testament.
