Twenty days ago, SBC Today, a blog owned and operated by Emir Caner and Truett-McConnell College faculty, posted a previously published blog post by a Southern Baptist pastor in Maryland, Ralph Green. The post criticized LifeWay’s new and very popular Sunday School curriculum, the Gospel Project. According to Green:
We found it to be biased in how it explains and interprets the study themes. There are numerous subtle seeds of the Calvinistic approach to Scripture and many that are overtly obvious. The more we read and studied the curriculum, the more convinced we have become convinced that this curriculum is not suitable for use here at Calvary. I am greatly disappointed because there is nothing wrong with healthy dialogue and wrestling with theological issues. But when a curriculum is designed to teach only one side of the issue, it is no longer a healthy debate but indoctrination; and we cannot allow that indoctrination to take place here at Calvary.
