Recommended Websites for Biblical Discernment:
"Fighting for the Faith" and "Apprising Ministries"
After retiring from the military chaplaincy, I felt I had awaken from a bad dream: heresy in our Southern Baptist Churches was rampant, including the one I grew up in.  It was like the story of "Rip Van Winkle," awakening from a deep sleep, and discovering, in this case, much to my horror, the unthinkable occurring in our churches.  Heresy, Vision Casting, Eisegetical Sermons, Entertainment on a platform complete with "7-11" hymns and Praise Singers; dancing and other sinful entertainment; Seeker Sensitive nonsense, and the list goes on, ad nauseam.

Fortunately, there are some good, biblically sound theologians who are standing up for the faith and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  I recommend these websites for those who want to understand the full scope of what is happening all across the country, not only in SBC churches, but other evangelical denominations as well.

Pastor Mac Brunson has served as Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church, Jacksonville, since 2006. He holds degrees from Furman University (B.A.) and Southwestern Seminary (M.Div., D.Min.), and has pastored churches in South Carolina, Virginia, North Carolina, and Texas. A native of Greenwood, SC, Pastor Brunson is married to his childhood sweetheart, Debbie. They are blessed with three children (Courtney, Trey, and Wills) and three grandchildren (Broc, Asa, and Audrey).

Pastor Brunson is a gifted and faithful teacher whose messages combine sound, Biblical preaching and practical, candid application. His extensive historical knowledge provides context, insight, and understanding as he encourages his listeners to join him in becoming a student of God’s Word.

Committed to missions and ministry, Pastor Brunson has led FBC Jacksonville to continue its support of pastors through the annual Jacksonville Pastors’ Conference, increase financial support of missions around the world, educate students through the First Baptist Academy of Jacksonville, and serve the community through special projects and a satellite campus in St. John’s County.

Beloved for his candor and sincerity, Pastor Brunson claims the truth of Jeremiah 29:11. “‘For I know the plans that I have for you,’ declares the LORD, ‘plans for welfare and not for calamity to give you a future and a hope.’”

The sermons Pastor Brunson preaches at FBC JAX are available on iTunes Podcast for download.
