“Ben the Baptist” says that Sodomites who get saved are still going to hell

Ben Knight, AKA “Ben the Baptist” frequently has videos on Anderson’s New IFB channels. In this video he preaches the false New IFB reprobate doctrine that Sodomites cannot be saved. Partial transcript below the video.

There’s this march for freedom event which is happening in washington DC, and it’s going to feature a bunch of Ex-Sodomited proclaiming that they’ve been quote-unquote set free from their sin because they accepted Jesus Christ.

Now I’m here to tell you that it doesn’t matter whether or not a sodomite becomes an ex-sodomite, that person is still a reprobate, that person is still going to go to hell.

(…)

The only reason someone would be capable of committing the sin of homosexuality is if they’ve already been given a reprobate mind. (…) The truth is, no matter how many of these people claim to have repented of being a homo, by the way, being saved or getting saved has nothing to do with how many sins you’ve repented of anyway, it’s a free gift, so that right there should tell you what they’re trusting in for their false salvation, but no matte rhow many of them claim “oh, I’m no longer a homo” (…) it’s a fraud.

(…)

The Bible says the only reason they would have been a sodomite to begin with is that God gave them over to a reprobate mind because they chose to hate and reject God.

(…)

They chose to commit that sin that a normal person can’t commit.

My name is Joshua Lindsey. I live in Minnesota, and with my wife and baby daughter am a faithful member of my local independent Baptist Church. I have taught Sunday School classes and children’s classes, and also had the opportunity to preach at several churches. I teach Bible college classes on the Pentateuch, Atheism and Faith, Comparative Denominations, Bible Preservation (A defense of the underlying texts of the KJV), Bible Geography and Customs, Church Graphic Design, and some others. My father is an Independent Baptist Pastor in Wisconsin, and I grew up in a home full of love for the Lord. My parents raised me in the Bible, and are faithful to this day in witnessing and discipling. Although I was constantly immersed in biblical teaching and preaching, I did not personally believe in Jesus as described in John 3:16 until my freshman year in Bible college. In the many years since then, I have grown in grace and the Lord has given me opportunity to serve him in ministry. Among other ministries, I run my church’s print shop and participate in door-to-door evangelism. In doctrine, I affirm the truth that has been passed down from church to church since the time of Christ. I affirm the deity of Christ, his death, burial, and bodily resurrection, the personhood of the Holy Spirit, the Trinity, the virgin birth, the inerrancy and infallibility of the scriptures, the inspiration and preservation of the scriptures, the imminent return of Christ and his future literal millennial reign. I accept the canonicity of the 66 books of scripture, I believe that God commands all men to repent, that Christ draws all men to himself, that any person can believe and be saved. I believe salvation cannot be forfeited or taken away. I believe Christ’s command to go to all the world and preach the Gospel is still applicable to us today. I believe in a future literal judgment seat of Christ and a Great white throne judgment. I believe that no person will enter heaven except through Jesus Christ. I reject all false religions: Islam, Judaism, new Age, etc. I reject the teaching that God elects some men to damnation, giving them no chance to be saved. I reject the idea that God did not preserve his words and that recent manuscript discoveries provide us with a more accurate Bible that was not available to past generations of Christians. I reject the concept of a universal church. I reject the idea that Baptism plays a part in salvation. I believe many things additionally not listed here. My views align with the scripture and with the beliefs that faithful churches have held since the time of Christ, and have held under the title of “Baptist” for many centuries now.
