The SBC Executive Committee has just announced on Twitter that they have moved to create a task force to review the activities of the controversial Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission headed by Russell Moore.

The motion adopted during the session on February 18 read: 

That the task force review the past and present activities of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission in the fulfillment of its Convention-approved ministry assignments and; That the task force assess whether the actions of the Commission and its leadership are affecting Cooperative Program giving or the further advancement of the Cooperative Program.

Russell Moore, a former Democrat staffer and a progressive has single-handedly led the Southern Baptist Convention to the far left. Many conservatives are highly concerned about the direction the denomination has taken since Moore has been in office. Southern Baptist churches have withheld funds and even left the denomination altogether.

For more information on the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission and its leftward drift, see here.

UPDATE 1: The purpose of the task force is to study the negative effects that the ERLC has had on Cooperative Program giving.
