“If you make a documentary about enemies within the church, but fail to mention the guy who took money from seminaries or the judge accused of molesting boys, then I’m gonna call bs (sic),” said pastor Mike Leake, likely referring to Paul Pressler and Paige Patterson.
Despite this, the Conservative Baptist Network has continued to support the film, promoting its premiere at MABTS on Saturday, November 19.
In response to an open letter written by SWBTS president Adam Greenway that criticized the film’s “untruthful attacks,” the CBN released a statement indicating that they didn’t believe the attacks to be untruthful or unfair.
“We are extremely concerned about the documented evidence [the film] presents, as should be all Southern Baptists, the statement said. “Southwestern Seminary’s inclusion in this film does not appear unfounded.”
The statement then went to outline a number of accusations against SWBTS, providing no context or specific information regarding any of the claims. The statement then ended with a quote from Adrian Rogers: “It is better to be divided by truth than united in error.”
The film is available to stream at enemieswithinthechurch.com.
