GREEARS SUMMIT NETWORK & NAMB/ SEND NETWORK CHURCH HOSTING OBAMA FOUNDATION & CAMPAIGN !

EVERY DAY IS A WINDING ROAD IN SBC LIFE AS MORE AND MORE MAINSTREAM LEADERS OPENLY FLIRT WITH OBAMA ERA FAR LEFT POLITICAL OPERATIVES.

J D Greear has been the figure heading some of the most radical goings on in the Southern Baptist in its long history. Under his watch as President the SBC 2019 buried the concerns of “Queer Christianity ” from Revoice Conference and “approved  Critical Race Theory and  Intersectionality as helpful analytical tools with the Gospel”.  Greear is too young and apparently too dull to understand that his “leadership ” is little more than an opportunity for those behind the SBC curtains to put a smiling mega-church pastor’s face on their progressive political strategies.

GREEARS PASTY WHITE BOYS IN A SUMMIT PLANT IN ATLANTA AREA ARE PUSHING THE RADICAL /RACIAL SOCIAL JUSTICE OF & CAMPAIGN.

Image Church boast the popular narrative of “Community “and the “Church as Family “.

IMAGE CHURCH 

COMMUNITY

“the church is a family”

“The church isn’t an event, it’s a group of people living in life-on-life relationships together. That means that the weekday is just as important as the weekend. We want to be a church that lives in authentic, transparent relationships with the ability to be vulnerable. We have created a safe space for this in our Community Groups. These groups are based around where you live so that you can do life together. Growing as disciples of Christ happens by living in community where accountability, love and service take place as a result of our gospel-identity. We want to put the gospel on display in the way we love one another by being in regular intentional community (John 13:34-35).”

ON SEPTEMBER  2019 THIS SUMMIT NETWORK CHURCH NEAR ATLANTA HOSTED THE & CAMPAIGN LEADERS IN IT’S CHURCH EVENT. 

“THE PURSUIT OF UNITY “

 

“RACE • SOCIAL JUSTICE • POLITICS • POLITICAL PARTY DIVISIONS AND PLACES TO FIND UNITY • THE IMPACT OF POLICY FOR MINORITY CULTURE”

& CAMPAIGN’S THIRD WAY COMPROMISE 

No photo description available.

WARNING TO CONSERVATIVE BELIEVERS IN SBC CHURCHES:

&CAMPAIGN POLITICAL PLATFORM CALLS CONSERVATIVE EVANGELICALS  TO COMPROMISE ON IMPORTANT (BUT “DIVISIVE “) ISSUES.

LGBTQ RIGHTS – IMMIGRATION AND BORDER CONTROLS- INTERFAITH DIALOG – POVERTY -NATIONALIZED HEALTHCARE (OBAMACARE) – RACIAL EQUITY-CRIMINAL JUSTICE REFORM- “DISCOURAGING ” BUT OUTLAWING ABORTION ARE EXAMPLES.

THERE ARE NO CONSERVATIVE VOICES IN & CAMPAIGN LEADERSHIP YET IT IS MARKETED AS A COLLABORATION OF LEFT AND RIGHT.

THE HYPOCRISY ON THE ISSUE OF ABORTION ALONE IS ASTOUNDING AS WEAR’S WORK WITH OBAMA ADMINISTRATION PROVES. OBAMA PROVIDED $530 MILLION PER YEAR TO PLANNED PARENTHOOD AND THE GLOBAL ABORTION MACHINE.

LGBTQ “RIGHTS” ACTIVIST SEEK TO REMOVE ALL RELIGIOUS EXEMPTIONS WHICH PROTECT CHRISTIAN CHURCHES AND PASTORS.

IMMIGRATION REFORM IS BEING DRIVEN BY OPEN BORDER SOCIETIES AND MUSLIM MIGRATION INTO THE US IN THE NAME OF REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT.

POVERTY IN THE SOCIAL JUSTICE & CAMPAIGN SCHEME OF THINGS IS RELIEVED BY WEALTH REDISTRIBUTION AND REPARATIONS .

HEALTH CARE IN THE HANDS OF GOVERNMENT MEANS MORE ABORTION – MORE TRANSGENDER PROMOTION – AND MORE TOTALITARIAN CONTROLS OVER OUR BODIES AND REPRODUCTION .

THESE ARE JUST  A FEW EXAMPLES OF WHAT IS FALSE ABOUT & CAMPAIGNS APPEAL TO EVANGELICALS .

 

Picture in the &Campaign blog Church Politics the logo implies both blue(Democratic ) voices and Red( Republican) voices are involved. In fact of those people pictured in the logo Giboney is a Democratic Party Strategist and Convention Delegate and Wear is the Obama Foundations “Ambassador the America’s Believers”. There are no Republican conservative voices in the room.

ACCORDING TO THE IMAGE CHURCH WEBSITE LINKS IT IS PART OF THE NAMB “SEND NETWORK ” CHURCH PLANTING MOVEMENT.

FOR SOUTHERN BAPTIST IT IS IMPORTANT TO TAKE NOTE. THIS CHURCH IS PART OF BOTH OUT NORTH AMERICAN MISSIONS BOARD PLANTING NETWORK AND THE SBC PRESIDENT J.D. GREEARS SUMMIT NETWORK OF CHURCHES & IT IS HOSTING THE FAR LEFT POLITICS OF THE OBAMA FOUNDATION FAITH LEADER AND A DEMOCRATIC PARTY STRATEGIST.
It is highly likely that your missions offerings have helped plant this church and pay the salaries of its pastors as it recruits the hearts and minds of your children and  grandchildren in the church you helped build.

IS & CAMPAIGN THE POLITICS OF THE NEW SBC-GREEAR AND NAMBS SBC?

ARE THESE THE FACES OF THE FUTURE OF THE SBC?

The SBC and its long reputation for Biblical conviction are quickly giving way to the standard, all too familiar stench of left wing nut politics and social justice false gospel.
Perhaps there is still life in and an understanding of the true GOSPEL left somewhere in the Southern Baptist Convention. We are prayerful and waiting.
THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY DROVE GOD FROM THEIR PLATFORM AND CONTINUE THE EMBRACE OF IDOLATRY IN ABORTION ON DEMAND AND THE LGBTQ AGENDA. DO SBC LEADERS THINK THESE ALLIANCES ARE NEUTRAL?

Executive summary: The Tragedy of American Compassion

Marvin Olasky stands as one of the first major intellectual successes in the American conservative movement, a man whose views on welfare were codified into law in the late 20th century. Born into a Jewish family in Boston, Marvin Olasky became an avowed Atheist and Marxist in high school and a member of the Communist party in 1972. While attending the University of Michigan, Olasky’s beliefs made a complete reversal after a spiritual awakening: either due to a decision to read the New Testament in Russian or a sudden existential crisis while reading Lenin, Olasky found himself a fervent supporter of the Christian conservative movement. He was baptized into the Presbyterian church in 1976; in 1992 he helped found the Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Austin, TX.

Olasky has taught in the journalism department at the University of Texas at Austin since 1983, becoming a full professor in 1993. Midway through his term as associate professor, he came to the attention of Reconstructionist philanthropist Howard Ahmanson, Jr., who gave him the editorship of the Turning Point series of books via his charitable arm, the Fieldstead Institute. Olasky wrote its first installment, A Christian Worldview Declaration (1987), as well as the Capital Research Center series Patterns of Corporate Philanthropy.

This initial work brought him to the attention of the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, which funded him as a two-year Bradley scholar at the The Heritage Foundation. His two 1988 books on the mass media, Prodigal Press: The Anti-Christian Bias of American News Media and The Press and Abortion, 1838-1988 outlined philosophies that harmonized with the Christian agenda of World magazine, of which he became editor in 1992. He was instrumental in that periodical’s 1998 spawning of the World Journalism Institute, which seeks to recruit and train Christian journalists and inject them into the mainstream media.

He has since written over 16 books, most notably The Tragedy of American Compassion (1992), which blamed the countercultural revolution of the 1960s for society’s ills thirty years later and claimed that welfare needed a basis in Christianity if it was to have any lasting effect. The book gained the endorsement of William Bennett, who passed it on to Newt Gingrich, who in turn shilled it to every Republican in the House of Representatives. In January 2001, he saw the policies outlined in this book put into law with the creation of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. George W. Bush has called him “compassoniate conservatism’s leading thinker”; in 1999, he chaired an advisory subcommittee on religion and public policy for the then-governor.

MARVIN OLASKY AND GEORGE W & “COMPASSIONATE CONSERVATISM”

Olasky is known for having literally “written the book ” (The Tragedy of American Compassion) on Christian charity and volunteerism that in many ways brought about the “Compassionate Conservatism” strategy and embrace of the now infamous Faith Based Partnerships of the George W Bush Presidency  . Bush first applied the Olasky ideology in Texas as Governor and then nationally as President. In the view of some, including this writer, these programs have greatly compromised Christian understanding of and ministry vision and the church in America has never recovered .

 

EVEN OLASKY HAD CONCERNS…OR DID HE REALLY?

Though credited with having inspired the “Compassionate Conservatism” of President  George W. Bush, Olasky was among those who expressed concerns over Faith Based Partnerships model. Was this nothing more than DIALECTIC dialog for the public consumption?

As we shall see Olasky is now working to promote one of the organizations called the & Campaign  co-led by Michael Wear whose work in the Obama FBP made the “worst fears” of Olasky over these programs become a horrifying NIGHTMARE reality for American Christians and their churches.

SOME CONTEXT FOR THE CONCERNS FROM THE NYT

“The White House, which opened its Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives just last week, was prepared for attacks from civil libertarians and religious leaders who have said his plan will undermine the separation of church and state.”

“But now the initiative is under fire for different reasons from conservative religious leaders who should have been Mr. Bush’s staunchest allies. In recent days two longtime Bush supporters, the religious broadcaster Pat Robertson and Marvin Olasky, author of the book ”Compassionate Conservatism,” have attacked the idea of encouraging partnerships between government and religious groups, and other conservatives are raising similar doubts.”

“Their concerns reflect long-held fears among conservative and evangelical Christians that by accepting government financing for endeavors from homeless shelters to job training programs, religious programs invite government meddling in their mission and message.”

CONCERNS CONFIRMED  WHEN FBP FELL INTO OBAMA HANDS LED BY MICHAEL WEAR NOW OF & CAMPAIGN 

This writer has reported a great deal on the concerns about the Obama era reforms of the FBP and how it was used to compromise Conservative Christian denominations and ministries like the Southern Baptist whose head CEO of the SBC Executive Committee joined WITH radical homosexual lobby and funding groups like the Human Rights Campaign and ARCUS to “find common ground for the common good”. These “partners ” were also joined by radical Islamist group leaders and socialist “Christians” like Jim Wallis and Joel Hunter for a opportunity to cash in on big tax dollars.

OBAMA’S FBP LEADER MICHAEL WEAR NOW CO-HEADS THE &CAMPAIGN

OLASKY IS PROMOTING BOTH WEAR AND &’S JUSTIN GIBONEY 

https://andcampaign.org/leadership

The & Campaign’s stated purpose is the “disrupt the 2020 elections” and to promote “Biblical Values & Social Justice . One of the & executive leaders is Justin Giboney an Atlanta Attorney and a Democrat Party strategist and Obama 2012 delegate and a (presumed Hillary Clinton) Democratic delegate for 2016 election.

Michael Wear is & Campaigns other executive leader .Wear was a 20 year old White House staffer and helped oversee Obama’s FBP reforms and draw conservative evangelicals into it’s dangerous compromises. His key role in this work is recounted and celebrated by other sell out evangelicals like Russell Moore and Tim Keller in Wear’s book “Reclaiming Hope”

Come Hear National Leaders: Newsmakers Interview Series 2019

Posted by Stephen Allen on 3/29/19 9:00 AM

Patrick Henry College (PHC) Newsmakers Interview Series with Marvin Olasky

Dr. Marvin Olasky, Editor-in-Chief of WORLD Magazine is back for another week of “Newsmakers” interviews! This April, he will be interviewing 11 national leaders covering topics of political strategy, public policy, religious liberty, criminal justice reform, gender identity, and philanthropy. ”

“Join us April 2-10, 2019 in the Barbara Hodel Center in person or online to participate in these sessions.  We encourage you to share this exciting opportunity with your local community. Admission is free and open to the public.”

1. Justin Giboney: The “And Campaign” for Redemptive Justice

“Atlanta attorney and political strategist. Co-chair of Obama for America’s Gen-44-Atlanta Initiative”

NOTE: Obama Administration’s Michael Wear the & Campaign’s other executive leader  was interviewed by Olasky two years ago in the same Patrick Henry College forum.Wear is pictured above third from left on the bottom row.

SOME DISTURBING DETAILS OF THE  JUNE 2016 GIBONEY  INTERVIEW

*Olasky openly promotes the & Campaign and its website .

*Olasky promotes the social justice agenda of & campaign as compatible with “Biblical Values” ( as a former communist how does Olasky NOT recognise the socialist/ Marxist ideologies behind the Social Justice narrative of &Campaign and Giboney?)

*Giboney is not debated or challenged by Olasky on ANY of this crafted talking points. Instead Gilboney is allowed to recruit from the students of Patrick Henry College, most being from conservative Christian families and many homeschooled .

*Olasky promoted the same perspective as & Campaign and others like 9MARKS  Mark Dever and Jonathan Leeman on  the” problematic position” for Christians politically being  “single issue voters”  or pro life /anti-abortion. Lots of fake talking points and carefully crafted effort going on here.

*Olasky is openly promoting Third Way political compromise WITH Giboney

*Giboney and Olasky promote the DEADLY  “Third Way ” compromise of “Fairness for All” on Religious Liberty and LGBTQ rights .

*Olasky ask for Giboney to refer Conservative Christians to news sources “from the other side” to better understand them. Giboney recommends Communist Van Jones of CNN and the Obama administration.

Van Jones was “outed ” by Conservative talk show host Glenn Beck and forced to resign and be reassigned in a less visible role in the Obama regime.

Guest: Tom Littleton. Tom joins Brannon in studio as they bring us an update on the And Campaign and Neighborly Faith. Topic: Hardly a week goes by that conservatives don’t find themselves being disappointed by another personality or institution that is giving credibility to the Marxianity that is engulfing evangelicalism. Brannon and Tom discuss Patrick Henry College recently sponsoring a forum with Marvin Olasky of World Magazine interviewing Justin Giboney of the And Campaign. The And Campaign is run by two Obama, Democratic operatives that are seeking to infiltrate evangelicalism for the 2020 election voters. Olasky not only praises Giboney but does not push back when Giboney recommends people read radical Van Jones. Topic: Brannon and Tom have spent some time researching the background of some of those working with Neighborly faith that is touring American, Christian colleges and universities. Did you ever think that Moody Bible College, Wheaton College, Taylor University, InterVarsity, CRU, and The Southern Baptist Convention would take part in brainwashing students on the campus of Christian colleges through interfaith dialogues with jihadis? Topic: We take your calls.

 

THE QUESTIONS THAT LINGER

 

Marvin Olasky

* Why is Patrick Henry College hosting & Campaign’s Giboney or Michael Wear Obama Foundations “Ambassador to America’s Believers “?

*Why is Olasky allowing the  promotion of the propaganda of Fairness for All” ?

*Why is a former Communist like Olasky unable to recognize and leave & Campaign/ Giboney’s Cultural Marxist ,Social Justice and Third Way politics unchallenged?

*Why is Olasky in agreement with Giboneys positions above- especially on Third Way political strategy given its origins and Olasky’s past?

*Why does Olasky NOT challenge Giboney’s promotion of Communist Van Jones ?

 

WORLD MAGAZINE , PATRICK HENRY COLLEGE AND OLASKY

Is World Magazine COMPROMISED  or compromising with & Campaign politics?

Is Patrick Henry College a safe place for your conservative Christian STUDENTS and homeschool graduate?

Is Marvin Olasky still a communist at heart? Then why as a Christian does Olasky NOT SEE that & Campaign is clearly a Democratic Party/ Obama Foundation operation FILLED with Cultural Marxist ideology? WHY is he promoting it ?

 

 

 

WHY ALBERT MOHLER IS RESPONSIBLE FOR SWBTS PROBLEMS WITH DR. LOPEZ

I DO NOT OFFER MUCH PERSONAL COMMENTARY BUT DR LOPEZ STORY SHOWS ALL THE ELEMENTS OF WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE SBC AT THIS PLACE IN ITS HISTORY

Rev Thomas Littleton                                                                                         12/5/2019

I have known Dr Robert Oscar Lopez for several years and we have worked together on projects , articles and several conferences. He has a powerful testimony of deliverance from homosexuality and from having been raised in a lesbian household in an  Ivy League ,achievement driven, family. Dr. Lopez is a writer, educator, thinker, speaks 8 languages and is Yale educated. He does not shy from the truth about his past or his conversion to faith in Jesus and has paid a price for standing up in secular academia for the Gospel . One such stand left him embattled and jobless in California. In the heat of this battle and aftermath Dr. Lopez was contacted and offered the chance to teach at SWBTS in Ft Worth by then President Paige Patterson who himself was destined to become the target of progressive forces in his own Southern Baptist Convention .

Once Paige Patterson was forced out of office at SWBTS in the Spring of 2018 Dr. Lopez and his closest friends all knew he was now in a perilous place with his employment. From all outside appearances it was the #MeToo movement and the secular press who “caught “Paige Patterson “covering up” a long history of abuse. But once the new administration for SWBTS came on line it was fairly clear that the power behind Patterson’s removal was Albert Mohler as his “team”, including Randy Stinson (who became SWBTS new Provost),  were moved into place to complete the Mohler machine take down and take over of the Ft Worth Seminary.

LIFE IN THE MOHLER CROSSHAIRS 

The day after Thanksgiving 2019 Dr. Lopez finally received “official notice” of his termination from SWBTS. Supposedly he was “laid off” because curriculum changes eliminated his position when in fact Mohler’s people, including Stinson, had been targeting and intimidating Lopez for months. They called him into meeting after meeting with the Dean and the Provost – demanding he not do interviews or write on issues related to LGBTQ and his testimony without gaining permission from a new young staffer Colby Adams. who was also from the Mohler camp as Mohler’s Producer for his program”The Briefing” producer.

Lopez is a prolific writer and commentator on cultural issues and academia so such restrictions were too vague, open ended, not put in writing and restrictive for Lopez to discern, comply and follow. Adams inability  to respond in a timely manner cost Dr. Lopez opportunity to speak to such concerns in national publications. Yet this expectation by the new Mohler leadership at SWBTS came with threats that Lopez writings and opinions  “would force them to fire you” and “if you are going to write that you will have to do it from somewhere else”.

Mohler underling and SWBTS Provost  Randy Stinson personally slid resignation paperwork across his desk demanding Lopez resign. This was several months ago. Now that Dr. Lopez is going public, Stinson released a statement on the situation and why he and SWBTS insist Dr. Lopez was terminated. In the statement Stinson denies Dr Lopez recent statements on his termination and even counters his own documented position in the matter. Stinson’s SWBTS statement also descends into the level of personal attacks on Dr Lopez.

Here is Mohler’s SWBTS Provost Randy  Stinson’s “Official” Statement. Mark these words which will soon be sinking to the bottom of a VAST sea of truth.

https://swbts.edu/news/releases/statement-southwestern-seminary-s-commitment-biblical-sexuality/

Having followed this story from the time Paige Patterson was forced out of SWBTS to today, I can affirm that the issues involving Dr.Lopez at SWBTS, a Southern Baptist institution, have everything to do with Albert Mohler and the problems his own progressive movement in the denomination has created.

Here they are in no particular order

  1. Dr. Lopez’s testimony of deliverance from homosexuality and full restoration to heterosexual norms is counter to Albert Mohler’s ownership of the myth of “unchanging homosexual orientation ” which he embraced in 2014 at the ERLC conference on “The Gospel. Homosexuality, and the Future of Marriage”.
  2. Provost Randy Stinson is Mohler’s key man on the ground at SWBTS after Mohler’s people took charge of the administration and began their overhaul of the curriculum. Stinson himself and SWBTS leadership confirm with the “layoff” of Dr. Lopez that THEY are overhauling /changing the curriculum. The embedded faculty at SWBTS who already had contacts and funding from the Social Justice invasive curriculum which has previously made its way into SBTS and SEBTS, were quickly – if not pre-selected to lead out the curriculum overhaul at SWBTS. This is the Kern Family Foundation funded, Oikonomia Network oversight, Acton Institute -Libertarian Catholic Social Justice curriculum which is at the root of the Mohler -Critical Race Theory /Intersectionality / James Cone/ Liberation Theology “Social Justice “controversies in the SBC. I first documented these connections and networks in 2016 article titled “the Evangelical Deep State”. Mohler has welcomed this agenda driven curriculum  and funding not only into SBTS but now into SWBTS.  It may VERY WELL be the impetus behind their desire to oust Paige Patterson.
  3. Provost Randy Stinson is an ERLC Fellow and speaker. He contacted ERLC leaders about Dr Lopez and used the ERLC poor “assessment ” of Lopez in his threats and efforts to force Dr. Lopez resignation over the last several months. ERLC is led by controversial Albert Mohler disciple Russell Moore. ERLC trained staff give the main official support to the “unchanging homosexual orientation’s” talking points which Albert Mohler has openly embraced and promotes to the SBC churches.  Dr. Lopez’s testimony and professional work and ministry do not conform to this ERLC leading narrative
  4. The real race problem in the SBC is in the Mohler circle as Mohler and his disciples continue to bear the heat of pushback from SBC 2019 justification of Critical Race Theory  and Intersectionality as “analytical tools” with the Gospel. Also efforts are ongoing to drive the #MeToo movement into the SBC as an abuse prevention. Dr. Lopez  made the point that efforts addressing sexual abuse by ERLC/ Moore /Mohler are problematic when it ignores the reality of Same Sex Abuse and that promoting LGBT+ in the SBC will ensure more not less abuse. Mohler called #MeToo movement against  SWBTS former President Paige Patterson “the Wrath of  God Poured on the SBC”. (  https://albertmohler.com/2018/05/23/wrath-god-poured-humiliation-southern-baptist-convention/ ) Meanwhile in the midst of the talking points and media blitz the SBTS/ Mohler regime at SWBTS have in fact fired 13 minority  faculty including  Dr. Lopez. Stinson and SWBTS have replaced 6 of them with pasty white boys from Mohler’s SBTS institution. Mohler, while pushing CRT, Intersectionality and #MeToo in the SBC is either allowing or directing his people to purge SWBTS of people of color and minority faculty. In the case of Dr. Lopez this is counter to his own intersectional humanity as a Latino,  former homosexual, former liberal academic turned Baptist believer. He now finds himself out of a job and being lied about in public by Mohler disciples at SWBTS.
  5. Dr. Robert Lopez is a problem for Albert Mohler, for the ERLC, Russell Moore, for SWBTS Randy Stinson, and the SWBTS faculty position BECAUSE he is NOT Sam Allbery or Rosaria Butterfield or Jackie Hill Perry or Christopher Yuan or Nate Collins of Revoice (an SBTS graduate and NT Teacher) or Karen Swallow Prior, or J D Greear, or Andrew Walker and Daniel Darling (employees of the ERLC). Dr. Robert Lopez  counters all their talking points of Same Sex Attraction and “unchanging homosexual orientation”. He is not standing in ERLC conferences demanding SBC churches be more “hospitable ” welcoming of  LGTQ+ Community, pining after deeply cherished homosexual desire toward the same sex (SSA). Dr. Lopez is NOT  calling for SBC churches to audit their churches for LGBTQ+ inclusion ( like Sam Allberry/ Living Out). He is not demanding SBC people hire LGBT+ staff or support Single  SSA Christian adoption and foster care. Lopez is not insisting that Queer Culture holds treasures for the New Jerusalem as SBTS Graduate /NT Teacher REvoice founder Nae Collins website did . Lopez instead wrote an Amicus Brief for SCOTUS Obergefell defending the rights of children to know birth parents in the quagmire being created  by unnatural  circumstances  around  same sex  “parenting”.
  6. Dr. Lopez is ALSO  a target because he spoke up. This includes two recent resolutions submitted to the SBC. One to stand up for so called “Ex Gay ” ministries and Counseling and the other ironically  to protect Whistle Blowers in the SBC. Both were crushed by Mohler influence in the SBC Resolution Committees .

    “I published this article under a false name on September 13, 2019. Why the pseudonym? Because SWBTS officials told me they were worried about the subject matter drawing unwanted attention to the institution. Note the date. Note the text of the resolution I submitted about sex abuse to the Southern Baptist Convention in April 2019, and the resolution I submitted in May 2018. I am not asking you to jump to any conclusions. Just note the timeline. Think real hard about the content. If you do so, the pieces of the puzzle will come together. And you will see the truth, because light wins over darkness.”

    “More light is coming.”

    https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2019/09/to_affirm_lgbt_ideology_is_to_support_abuse.html

    While living under the threats of Randy Stinson and the SWBTS Mohler disciples Dr. Lopez had to publish this truthful and disturbing warning ABOUT SEX ABUSE outcomes under another name. The trajectory Albert Mohler and ERLC/ Russell Moore and others have placed the SBC on is encouraging MORE sexual abuse with its false and unbiblical SSA/ Orientation. Read it and be warned and remember this is Albert Mohler’s SBC …if he is allowed to continue the establishment of his movement. More bold truth tellers and whistleblowers will fall victim to this regime unless everyone stands up together and says “Enough “!

    How do I know ? Because I have both lived it and am watching my friend Robert Oscar Lopez walk though it as we speak.

     

 

 

 

PCA’s RANDY POPE /PERIMETER CHURCH AIDING OBAMA &CAMPAIGN SOCIAL JUSTICE PARTNER

RANDY POPE AND HIS ATLANTA CHURCH FOUNDED AND PROMOTE THE MINISTRY OF AN OBAMA FOUNDATIONS &CAMPAIGN  CO-FOUNDER

Rev Thomas Littleton                                                                                       12/3/2019

( THE FOLLOWING ILLUSTRATES THE REALITY THAT CONSERVATIVE CHURCHES AND MOVEMENTS WHO TRY TO PARTNER WITH URBAN ACTIVIST , GOVERNMENT PROJECTS, WELFARE PROGRAMS AND COMMUNITY TRANSFORMATION ALWAYS BECOME LOOSED FROM THEIR BIBLICAL MOORINGS  AND FIND THEMSELVES DROWNING IN A SEA OF PROGRESSIVE POLITICAL IDEOLOGY .THIS NEVER …NEVER ENDS WELL.)

Thirty Pieces of Silver .org was born in part out of the disturbing revelations at this writer’s own church home in 2012 when it adopted Randy Pope’s  “Journey Curriculum” -“Seeking the Welfare of The City ” and Community “Connector ” VISION  of the church as the hub for community development . The vision of Randy Pope /Perimeter Church became this writers church -NEW vision. Randy Pope had been selling his ideology  through  the Journey Curriculum which had a justice and community narrative with a plan for “mobilization ” of the congregations at his own church and other churches who followed it.

By 2013 Pope visited this writers Birmingham Alabama church and helped launch its own smaller scale “Connector” project. That church, Shades Mountain Independent, had quickly gone from being a growing church with solid evangelistic / discipleship model to a becoming a rapidly declining congregation with ministries taking government funding and attempting city wide community development role in the social justice vein . Today SMI- now renamed Shades Mountain Community Church , continues its steep decline and is teetering on the verge of collapse under the “Connector Project ” debt and the failing “vision”.

Birmingham Alabama Briarwood PCA Church pastor Harry Reeder was involved in the vision with SMI church through it’s mutual interest in the “City Reaching ” / justice model of the local “Mission Birmingham ” following in the footsteps of Pope’s Atlanta organization. (More on that in a moment )

This writer contacted Randy Pope about his “vision casting ” which split the SMI congregation and took it deeply in to debt -creating an uncertain future for the declining church . Pope was not interested in discussing the issues and provided only  a very brief response to the details of the concern. He called for agreement to “agree to disagree” without any discussion of the facts.

RANDY POPE CALLS PERIMETER CHURCH TO GO “ALL-IN” $75 MILLION WORTH

Randy Pope at the same time led his own church to  LAUNCHED ITS OWN capital campaign called “All – In Kingdom Impact ” to raise funding to update facilities and budget for the community development vision of the “Connector Program “. ( At the same time Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church  was raising $73 million to do the essentially same on it’s campuses .)

As part of this vision Pope would engage the Rick Warren “Purpose Driven ” model from the same Faith Based Partnership ideals Pope / Warren/ fellow PCA “visionary ” Tim Keller learned from Peter Drucker and Bob Buford’s Leadership Network. Drucker was a corporate “social responsibility ” management  guru whose ideology was used by  Buford’s organization Leadership Network to lure and “train many “innovative ” and personally ambitious , pragmatic young pastors like those mentioned above. These young pastors like Pope and Warren were enticed  into embracing  the Drucker model . Leadership Network has been very successful in enticing many others over the last 35 years with little notice by the average congregant in churches like Perimeter and Saddleback..

RANDY POPES “TESTIMONY” OF THE INFLUENCE OF BUFORD / DRUCKER 

In 2014  LeadNet posted this Pope /Perimeter  interview of Randy Pope with Buford about the history of Pope in the Drucker leadership “education”.

 

The Drucker / Buford vision sees churches and ministries  as a valuable part of “mobilizing volunteers “and “creating community ” for recasting the role of the church in society as one of three sectors .The job of the church is to “care for souls”  in Druckers, three legged stool approach. This role ,as Drucker envisioned it , sees the churches become the hub of social services , health care  , and community human services . Between FEMA during a local disaster response and the housing of “free ” or indigent medical clinics in the churches, to continuing education programs -the church is redefined as providing help and equitable distribution of goods and services at the local level. However the church cannot PARTNER  with other outside entities, especially government entities and funding  and retain it’s Gospel mission. Common sense warnings abound as do outright restrictions on prayer, witness, Bible reading and any explicitly religious activity or any “discriminatory ” policies by those accountable to the Government entities who have direct oversight of such collaborations .

PRAGMATISM – THE DEATH OF GOSPEL  MISSION

RANDY POPE AND MANY OTHER PASTORS WERE MOST LIKELY  PRAGMATIC ENOUGH TO PERSUADE THEMSELVES THEY COULD DO THE GOSPEL WITH GODLESS PARTNERS.

ALSO PERIMETER CHURCH LIKELY DID NOT THINK SUCH WORK AND PARTNERS WOULD IMPACT THEIR SOCIAL POLICY AND POLITICS TO THE POINT OF PLACING THEM DIRECTLY IN LEAGUE WITH OBAMA FOUNDATION GLOBAL AGENDA .

IF NOT THEY WERE WRONG .

OVER THIRTY YEARS LATER- THE ERROR AND FAILURE IS NOW OBVIOUS .

Mission Birmingham has recently shut down operations in Birmingham after receiving government grants and buying into the Randy Pope style Vision expansion. )

ENTER  THE LEFT ACTIVIST JUSTICE  POLITICS 

ONE OF THE MINISTRIES UNDER THE POPE /PERIMETER  “ALL-IN KINGDOM IMPACT ” VISION IS “TERMINUS COLLECTIVE .

ITS EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR IS

Amisho “Sho” Baraka

  “SHO “AN ARTIST ACTIVIST WHO IS A COFOUNDER OF THE &CAMPAIGN AN OBAMA FOUNDATION / DEMOCRATIC PARTY INFLUENCED MOVEMENT FOCUSED ON THE “PROBLEMATIC”  TRUMP ADMINISTRATION AND THE 2020 ELECTION 

https://andcampaign.org/leadership

“After being educated at Tuskegee University and the University of North Texas, where he studied Television/Film, Anthropology, and Public Administration, Sho Baraka has spent the last decade traveling the world (5 continents, nearly 20 countries) as a recording artist, culture curator, and activist. His oversees activism has ranged from race relations in South Africa to establishing musical cohorts in Indonesia. Sho is a three-time Billboard charting, award-nominated (Stellar, Dove) artist, founding member of internationally known hip-hop group 116 Clique, and founder of Forth District and The And Campaign.”

“Currently, Sho is combining his artistic platform with his academic pursuits, contributing a unique perspective to both arenas, while attempting to raise the culture. In addition to regularly traveling for concerts, speaking engagements, and consultation projects, Sho serves as the Executive Director of Terminus Collective, a network that is active in civic and cultural innovation. Sho lives in Atlanta, GA with Patreece, his wife of fifteen years, and their three children; one daughter and two sons.”

SHO BARAKA CAUSED  CONTROVERSY IN 2017 OVER HIS SONG LYRICS

LIFEWAY PULLED HIS PRODUCTS OUT OF THIS RETAIL STORES .

“Originally, LifeWay embraced Baraka’s album, describing it on their website as being “saturated in a Gospel worldview.” The Narrative received a positive reception on iTunes as well, making the top 10 list last fall when it debuted.”

“The objection comes over an anatomical reference in the last song on the album, “Piano Break, 33 A.D.”:

“I was an insecure boy who just thought he was a genius
But always p****d off, that’s because I thought with my p***s
It’s all strategic, I’m just asking us the reason
Share my faith on the track, I’m just exorcising demons”

“While it may seem like mere pushback for lyrics considered inappropriate to some Christians, Baraka feels the decision on LifeWay’s part to pull the record points to a greater schism between cultures within the evangelical sphere. As the Washington Post words it, Baraka “believes his own culture, one shaped by a love for hip-hop and a pride in his ethnic heritage, is at odds with a Christianity dominated by white, political conservatives.”

 

CHRISTIANITY TODAY DENIES THAT BARAKA IS “ADVOCATING PROGRESSIVISM IN THE CHURCH”  IN ITS 2017 RESPONSE .

BUT NOW WITH &CAMPAIGN THAT DENIAL IS PROVEN TOTALLY WRONG. 

“Not that Baraka is advocating progressivism in the church per se, but rather calls for a third way, outside of the binary systems the evangelical church has placed itself in. His viewpoint is best expressed in an article he wrote last year about the election. In it, he voices his frustration over having to choose between the democratic party whose supporters are marching toward a “secular utopia” and the republican party that is backing a candidate who wants to “resurrect bigoted ideologies.” Baraka argues this leaves the black Christian without a representative.

Terminus Collective – Perimeter Church

[PDF]

ACCORDING TO PERIMETER CHURCH PDF ABOVE TERMINUS COLLECTIVE IS PART OF THE RANDY POPE/ PERIMETER CHURCH “ALL- iN KINGDOM IMPACT ” CAPITAL CAMPAIGN AND MINISTRY VISION .
“Through ALL IN, Terminus Collective Is Influencing Leaders in
Secular Channels of Cultural Influence”
“Who are we?
“Our vision:”
“In partnership with local churches inside and outside of I-285, Terminus Collective desires to see men and women who work in different channels of cultural influence (e.g., business, education, the arts, government, etc.) equipped with a Christ-centered world and life view for the glory of God, the good of their neighbors, and the common good of Atlanta. Our mission Our mission is to organize and equip leaders for the flourishing of Atlanta through the integration of faith, industry, and community. Areas of focus: work (vocations in and around Atlanta) and cities (Atlanta-area communities, inside and outside of I-285).”
THE TERMINUS VISION AND THE FAITH AND WORK SOCIALIST ECONOMICS
OF TIM KELLER
” What is the problem we are trying to solve, and what is a solution?
“In nothing has the Church so lost her hold on reality as in her failure to understand and respect the secular vocation. She has allowed work and religion to become separate departments, and is astonished to find that, as a result, the secular work of the world is turned to purely selfish and destructive ends, and that the greater part of the world’s intelligent workers have become irreligious, or at least, uninterested in religion.” – Dorothy Sayers, mid 1900s”

“It is often a challenging endeavor to flesh out the implications of the gospel in and through one’s vocation. It is even more challenging to connect one’s faith with one’s vocation, in hopes of impacting one’s neighborhood and city.”

“Currently, there is limited training for people trying to figure out how the biblical plot-line of creation-fall-redemption restoration connects to their work, especially “mundane” work. This is beginning to change, not just in Atlanta, but in a
number of other cities through creative endeavors such as the Center for Faith and Work (Redeemer Presbyterian Church in NYC), Surge School (Phoenix, AZ), and the Denver Institute for Faith and Work (Denver, CO). “
“• Non-formal education (the school). The “school” will have semester-long tracks that provide the participant with a Christ-centered world and life view. The curriculum will be designed to equip people who serve in private, public, and social sectors. The “school” will expose the participant to theologies of vocation and place, combined with
components necessary for a community to flourish (e.g., healthy economy, healthy public sector, the public square). “Classes” will take place monthly (sometimes 2x/week+) and will be interactive, consist of a curriculum, and leverage a repository of Atlanta-area leaders identified through our partnerships.
• Community research and consultation. Not only do we hope to provide excellent data on Atlanta-area communities, but we also want to eventually be a go-to service for helping to convene community stakeholders — again, through local churches — to help bless their communities. “
POPES VISION WITH TERMINUS RECRUITED CAMPUS PCA MINISTRY “CAMPUS OUTREACH ” VOLUNTEERS FOR TRAINING 
“What are some initial results from our beginnings (fall 2015 – summer 2016)
• Through Terminus Collective’s monthly forum (City Syllabus), an estimated 200+ attendees were exposed to a redemptive grid through which to view their work and city.
• By partnering with Campus Outreach and providing training for CO’s summer leadership project in June and July, Terminus exposed more than 60 Campus Outreach college students to a conversation centered on the gospel, work, and the intersection of faith and work in different industries, in and around Atlanta.
• Terminus Collective worked with a strategic planning team made up of people from at least 10 different churches, inside and outside I-285. “
ANY CONSERVATIVE PCA MEMBER SHOULD BE CONCERNED IF THEIR COLLEGE AGE CHILDREN WORKED IN CAMPUS OUTREACH AND THESE SOCIAL JUSTICE PROJECTS

Why Terminus Collective?
“Atlanta, like many metropolitans, has the potential of great flourishing by way of rapid development, a burgeoning entertainment industry and a venerated history of social impacts. However, Atlanta also has a profound tangle of racial, social, and economic challenges. Atlanta ranks near the top in income inequality, sex trafficking, while compounding that with racial tensions, housing and community decay, and other forms of social dislocation. We at Terminus believe that the passive manner in which we view vocation is represented in the misfortune of the city. Terminus Collective is structured to inhibit such a plague by introducing an emerging philosophy to work while constructing vocational opportunities.
WHO is Terminus Collective?
Terminus Collective is a collective of Creatives and Makers from multiple industries such as; Film, Music, Fine Arts, Artisans, Dance and more. This collective desires to use their time, talent and treasure for the benefit of others. Our Executive Director, Amisho Baraka, has worked in the film and music industry for over a decade. We desire to forge an ecosystem where creatives work together, learn together and create together.”

CHRISTIANITY TODAY AND POLYMATH TIES TO BARAKA ORGANIZATION

 

ANOTHER PARTNER/ SPONSOR OF SHO’S PERIMETER CHURCH ORGANIZATION IS “POLYMATH ”

Partners

POLYMATH IS A “BRANDING ORGANIZATION ” WHICH ALSO REPRESENTS THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST ERLC UNDER PROGRESSIVE RUSSELL MOORE, Q IDEAS , AEI  AMONG OTHER ORGANIZATIONS.

Social Justice is the common theme of most of these organization TODAY .

POLYMATH BRANDING IS LED BY TIM DALRYMPLE -NEW CEO OF CHRISTIANITY TODAY

https://polymath.io/team/tim-dalrymple/

“Tim is a national champion gymnast with degrees from Stanford, Princeton Theological Seminary, and Harvard. A true polymath, he has taught at elite universities, helped to launch the world’s largest religion website, and published in books, journals, magazines, and newspapers. He launched Polymath in 2013 to gather talented creatives around projects that matter.

“Tim currently enjoys less dangerous sports than gymnastics while spending time with his amazing wife and Star Wars-loving daughters”

DALRYMPLE IS ALSO NOW  A MEMBER OF PERIMETER CHURCH

https://www.christianitytoday.com/news/2019/february/christianity-today-appoints-timothy-dalrymple-as-new-presid.html

“The president-elect was raised in California, where his father served in several pastoral roles. He began to preach and teach at a young age. He was also a national champion gymnast and saw God’s faithfulness in victory and defeat alike. He took his passions for ministry, learning, and athletic achievement with him to Stanford University.”

“When his gymnastics career ended in a broken neck, he plunged into campus ministry and overseas missions trips. He became president of Stanford’s Campus Crusade (Cru) chapter.”

“It was also at Stanford where he met his wife, Joyce. Both helped to lead a Christian unity movement on campus that brought together students from all the university’s Christian fellowships to worship God with one another.”

“After graduating from Stanford with a double major in philosophy and religious studies, Tim earned an MDiv at Princeton Theological Seminary and a PhD in modern western religious thought at Harvard University’s Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Along the way he also served in youth ministry, prison chaplaincy, and graduate and faculty ministry with InterVarsity Christian Fellowship.”

“Tim’s desire to thoughtfully engage the public square and to find creative ways of sharing the gospel in the new media marketplace found expression after Harvard in his work with the multi-religious website Patheos (2008–2014). First he was managing editor of Patheos’s evangelical channel, then director of content and vice-president of business development.”

“In 2013 Dalrymple founded Polymath, a creative agency that helps clients with branding, design, web, video, marketing and communications, and content development. Its clients have included the Museum of the Bible, International Justice Mission, the American Enterprise Institute, and Indiana Wesleyan University.”

“Today, after 18 years of marriage, Tim and Joyce have three daughters; the family is currently active at PERIMETER CHURCH  in Johns Creek, Georgia.”

DEFEATING TRUMP BY SELLING “THIRD WAY “POLITICAL ENGAGEMENT TO EVANGELICALS 

The vision of & Campaign is to shake up the 2020 election.

The Terminus project of & Campaign co-founder Sho Baraka seems disturbingly similar to the Atlanta based  anarchist group “Capitol Terminus Collective ” but with a faith based focus twist .

THE TERMINUS  NAME HAS HISTORY IN ATLANTA ANARCHIST POLITICS

“It was the idea of a few Atlanta attendees of the Million Worker March in 2004 to create an anarchist collective in Atlanta, and early in 2005, a few locals began holding study groups on anarchism and political theory. Apart from the study groups, the collective began organizing to promote the idea of a Southeast anarchist-communist federation, much like that of NEFAC, or FAI of Iberia.”  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capital_Terminus_Collective

It is unclear where Perimeter church leaders and Randy Pope got the name for their in house Terminus Collective but it is VERY CLEAR where it has landed them.

WHERE DOES IT ALL LEAVE THE CHURCHES WHO SUBSCRIBE TO THE KELLER /POPE/ WARREN/ DRUCKER /COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT VISION?

FOR NOW THE MOST OBVIOUS PLACE IS IN THE POCKET OF THE OBAMA FOUNDATION FAITH OPERATIVE AND THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.

PCA people who support Tim Keller and Randy Pope and others in their denomination plus the multitudes of Baptist who follow Rick Warrens “Purpose Driven ” models -have no idea where it all came from. These leaders are taking the church into a massive vortex of social justice and socialist economics while telling them it is the vision of the future for the ministry of the Gospel . If your church is driving “Community Development “and economic justice – then you are being deceived  INTO FUNDING MUCH OF IT WITHOUT EVEN KNOWING IT .

EVEN LESS  OBVIOUS HAS BEEN  SLIGHT OF HAND BY WHICH THE GOSPEL COALITION AND ITS ILK HAVE TURNED THE NEXT GENERATION BELIEVERS INTO SOLID SOCIAL JUSTICE DEMOCRATIC VOTERS IN THE PROCESS.

IT IS VERY DISTURBING TO SEE THE END GAME ….IF YOU WERE PAYING ATTENTION .

QUESTION IS ARE YOU …PAYING ATTENTION ?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RELIGIOUS LIBERTY REDEFINED THRU THE LENS OF ISLAMIC /LGBT RIGHTS

 

URGING “COMMON GROUND” WITH LGBT AND ISLAM IS ONE OF THE WORST BETRAYALS COMING FROM WITHIN THE CHURCH.

By Rev. Thomas Littleton                                                                                          11/29/2019

Religious Liberty in America is at the HEART of the freedoms set forth in both the US Constitution and the founding of the nation. This guaranteed freedom is one of the most appealing personal freedoms about being an American whatever your point of origin . However to assert that the Constitution does not speak to Religious Liberty through the lens of Christianity  is to perpetuate a modern myth with far more political ,universalist and globalist overtones than historic fact. ALSO efforts to feature  issues and  systems antithetical to the heart of Religious Liberty and Christian FAITH to ” RE-interpret Religious Liberty” in America are nothing more than classic deconstructionism.

Today there is a New /Redefined Religious Liberty being promoted  not only by those who would have something obvious to gain from it but by the trusted leaders in the Christian faith. Like a creative dance of illuminary beings flashing in a darkened sky -the talking points of Interfaith Dialog and securing Religious Liberty for all are flashing in the eyes of believers young and old .

Historically such freedoms prevent a State establishment of a state church and prevent prohibit the free exercise of religion . Clearly the Constitution speaks through the lens of Christian faith and the struggle colonials had with the Government and it’s state church from which it declared Independence. While relevant  to a broader religious application , the Constitution does not project the opportunity to disadvantage historic Christian freedoms as it is interpreted to be more “inclusive” or “non discriminatory “. These lines only blurred when promoting the normalization of things in direct opposition to Christian faith as necessary to redefining Religious Liberty.

The problem in American Christianity concerning Religious Liberty is that the very people and organizations employed and engaged by Christians to defend their freedoms are the key players in the modern day “dance of the fireflies ” to strip all real Christian foundations from the heart of Religious Liberties  as it is redefined “for a pluralistic society”.. As is the case in the gardening board game by the same name….  ” not everything in the  (Gospel ) garden will be rosy as the game plays out.” We are awakening to find strangers have sown tares in the fields of Religious Liberty .

CHRISTIAN WORLDVIEW APOLOGETICS ARE EMBRACING INTERFAITH DIALOG 

One of the areas most active in the New Redefined Religious Liberty through the lens of islam and Christian / Muslim dialog is in Christian Apologetics ministries .In the name of evangelical outreach and hospitality, apologetics groups are bringing in Muslim Speakers and taking teens and adults to local  Mosque , Islamic Centers open house events to be instructed by the Mosque leaders on the history and devotions of Islam. Christians are being encouraged to study the Koran and “get to know Muslims around them”. Now this effort is doubling down on the very campuses of Christian institutions of higher education .

APOLOGETICS MINISTRIES MYTHS DRIVING INTERFAITH DIALOG 

Many see such Apologetics efforts through the hope of providing for evangelism yet the advocates of the New Redefined Religious Liberty are quick to say that “Christians should not be viewing their Muslim neighbors as evangelistic projects ” but should instead be “getting to know and accept people for who they are “. The Evangelism goal is a modern myth perpetuated in the talking points for more Biblical conservative participants  .

In this writer’s area by 2016 a Christian Apologetics group working within SBC and PCA churches and associated with Biola Universities  “Stand  to Reason Apologetics ” began bringing a professional Muslim lobbyist from a DC think tank into PCA and SBC churches and Christian Schools .The message  overwhelmingly misrepresented Islam by  advocating that:

(Some Myths perpetuated about Islam by current apologetics ministries)

1-“Muslims and Christians worship the same God”

2-“The US Constitution and Sharia Law are compatible”

3- “Islam promotes Religious Freedom and tolerance ”

4- “Islam is compatible with American ideals of Religious Liberty”

SOME MUCH NEEDED HISTORY FOR CHRISTIANS TO KNOW

“COMMON WORD AND COMMON GROUND “AT ROOT OF INTERFAITH MOVEMENT 

This movement appears to have crystalized in 2008

https://faith.yale.edu/common-word/common-word-christian-response

Religious Peace—World Peace
“Muslims and Christians together make up well over half of the world’s population. Without peace and justice between these two religious communities, there can be no meaningful peace in the world.” We share the sentiment of the Muslim signatories expressed in these opening lines of their open letter. Peaceful relations between Muslims and Christians stand as one of the central challenges of this century, and perhaps of the whole present epoch. ”

COMMON GROUND

“What is common between us lies not in something marginal, nor in something merely important to each. It lies, rather, in something absolutely central to both: love of God and love of neighbor. Surprisingly for many Christians, your letter considers the dual command of love to be the foundational principle not just of the Christian faith, but of Islam as well. That so much common ground exists – common ground in some of the fundamentals of faith – gives hope that undeniable differences and even the very real external pressures that bear down upon us cannot overshadow the common ground upon which we stand together. ”

YOU NEED TO KNOW:

THE NEW (REDEFINED) RELIGIOUS LIBERTY ,HOW IT WORKS AND WHO IS PLAYING THE GAME OF “THE DANCE OF THE  FIREFLIES”.

At the moment this confusing message looks to be coming at the church from all directions.

IMMIGRATION REFORM AND RELIGIOUS LIBERTY .

The push for “immigration reform” brings many partners together. Large corporations who want cheap labor , open societies foundations who want open borders , Democratic Party strategist who want more welfare recipient voters. Progressive evangelicals like Russell Moore who help the strategy of all those mentioned above by moving conservative Christians toward the progressive policies . The partners all find their common ground and mutual benefit.

Perhaps Moore and others added benefit is the push for more immigration means the perfect justification for redefining the “New Religious Liberty ” in a pluralistic society ” as they push for reforms that will flood the culture in America with an even more diverse religious landscape. Part of the end goals for evangelicals in this strategy is very simple . It pays well to be pro immigration IF you are on the receiving end of grants coming from all other parties involved.

The new Religious Liberty has very little to do with Christian faith or the Constitution or protecting either of them. It has far more to do with the political winds for social change AND the massive funding that fuels the movement. In short,especially in the SBC it could be perceived that the one person and the entity he heads employed to protect Christians Religious Liberty is doing far more to undermine and redefine it than in any way protect it.

CIVILITY A KEY “POLITICAL ENGAGEMENT ” TALKING POINT 

ERLC recently released its 2020 voter guide .It is the ERLC sounds the charming chime of “Civility” which might well be understood to mean “True Biblical Conservatives STAND DOWN and be nice while we progressives do what  we do and redefine your world”. Moore’s 2020 election guide was drafted by a Georgetown Professor and a new age globalist spirituality / universalist think tank .

“The extreme polarization in our political parties has become a barrier to compromise and progress on policies that could improve our country and the American people. Our country’s biggest challenges have become political battlegrounds, no better example than the current immigration debate. Hear from highly regarded and influential thought leaders on how we can bridge ideological differences and come together for meaningful change.”

WEARS NARRATIVE ON LGBT & PROTECTING RELIGIOUS FREEDOM AND REFORMING IMMIGRATION TARGETING THE 2020 HOPEFUL DEFEAT OF TRUMP

https://andcampaign.org/2020

&CAMPAIGN COUPLES LGBTQ AND RELIGIOUS LIBERTY

“RELIGIOUS FREEDOM AND LGBTQ RIGHTS”
“All attempts to remove more traditional religious beliefs from the public square should be opposed. We, like many other Americans, affirm the historic Christian sexual ethic, and we also believe that religious freedom and LGBTQ civil rights are not necessarily in
irreconcilable conflict. Faith-based charities, hospitals and colleges should not have to choose between surrendering their convictions and closing their doors. At the same time, LGBTQ people should not lose jobs and housing because of how they identify. We must
pursue ways to disagree and live together without bullying or compromising our conscience. Towards that end, we encourage all 2020 candidates to support the Fairness for All Act, which will grant basic civil rights for LGBTQ people while also protecting religious freedom for all faiths.”

SCOTUS PROVES & CAMPAIGN AND WEAR WRONG ON RELIGIOUS LIBERTY VS LGBTQ

REDEFINING MARRIAGE AND FAMILY ACCORDING THE THE SUPREME COURT SETS IN MOTION A CONFLICT BETWEEN LGBTQ RIGHTS IN THE FRAMEWORK OF CIVIL VS RELIGIOUS MARRIAGE AS AN INSTITUTION .

No issue is more contradictory to Christian faith in the culture  than redefining human sexuality and supporting the radical LGBTQ agenda . FEW younger Christians are aware of the  history or goals of this global movement or its radical , militant anti-Christian stance. The ERLC / Moore have done NOTHING  to educate Christians on the agenda they face or what is coming into education at every level and impacting Christian families across the spectrum of churches and Christian institutions and ministries . To the contrary ERLC leaders have acted like the massively funded and organized pro LGBTQ groups like Human Rights Campaign do not exist while they have held meetings in private with them  behind closed doors.

ALREADY PARENTAL RIGHTS, “HUMAN DIGNITY ” AND THE DEVELOPING LEGAL LANGUAGE OF SEXUAL ORIENTATION/ GENDER IDENTITY AKA “SOGI” ARE IN PLAY

The legal construct for furthering the most radical of LGBTQ rights is the language of Sexual Orientation Gender Identity or SOGI. Though considered the legal gold standard internationally SOGI in fact embodies the very conflict that the movement represents within its own agenda and should expose its weakest legal standing.

To assert that S.O. Sexual Orientation is something  akin to being  “inborn / fixed /unchanging ” while at the same time, in the same phrase , asserting that biological gender is simply an “identity ” or G.I. – therefore it is “fluid and changing” is a total contradiction. NOW global legal human rights issues must be defined and interpreted by this totally subjective contradiction. Fixing and assigning legal standards and discrimination laws to unscientific “orientation arguments  and fluid gender identities is a fools errand and a seed bed for legal malpractice.  Tossing Religious Liberties into this legal quicksand can be little more than an effort to distort if not destroy it altogether .

Assuring Human Dignity for the SOGI populations of the nations must now redefine human rights all together by redefining what it means to BE HUMAN. ERLC/ Russell Moore have only reinforced these efforts and never exposed the contradiction or challenged it or its terminology .

LGBTQ remains one of the greatest threats to ALL RELIGIOUS LIBERTY  that is not willing to be reshaped around it’s ever changing  ever expanding desired narrative.

EQUALITY ACT  ENDS RELIGIOUS LIBERTY NOT COMPLIANT WITH LGBTQ AGENDA

NEXT IN LINE IS THE EQUALITY ACT THAT REDEFINES  ALL OPPOSITION TO THE NORMALIZATION OF THE FULL LGBTQ AGENDA AS HATE SPEECH AND DISCRIMINATORY

This Bill which has been lodged in committees throughout the Obama era and waiting for the right crisis to attach itself to is the END of Religious Liberty as we know it

https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/5/text

AN ACT

“To prohibit discrimination on the basis of sex, gender identity, and sexual orientation, and for other purposes.”

“Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled,”

SECTION 1. SHORT TITLE.

This Act may be cited as the “Equality Act”. SEC. 2. FINDINGS AND PURPOSE. (a) Findings.—Congress finds the following:

1)Discrimination can occur on the basis of the sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, or pregnancy, childbirth, or a related medical condition of an individual, as well as because of sex-based stereotypes. Each of these factors alone can serve as the basis for discrimination, and each is a form of sex discrimination…….

THE & CAMPAIGN /MICHAEL WEARS  IMMIGRATION REFORM /PRO ISLAMIC RIGHTS MOVEMENT. CLEARLY ANTI TRUMP BUT MUCH MORE .
IMMIGRATION
“The Trump administration has failed to treat undocumented immigrants with dignity and care, especially at the U.S.-Mexico border. In light of God’s special concern for the immigrant and the sojourner, we are deeply dissatisfied with the federal government’s continued negligence when it comes to passing comprehensive immigration reform. The current administration’s willingness to use draconian, manipulative measures to stoke fear in immigrant communities and pit family members against one another is reprehensible. Our government must seek to be both just and compassionate regarding immigration policy, especially in protecting Dreamers and upholding longstanding laws regarding refugees fleeing violence, lawlessness and oppression.”

WEAR /&CAMPAIGN FALSE CONCLUSION

“CONCLUSION”
“Our nation desperately needs Christians to live out their faith in this political sphere for the good of all Americans, and the 2020 presidential candidates need to hear, respond to, and respect our voice and earn our vote. Through advocacy and protest, we are
committed to supporting candidates, no matter their political affiliation, when they promote civility and human dignity, and we will actively oppose politicians, policies, and parties when they undermine these values.”

LEGAL ADVOCACY FOR ISLAM IN AMERICA BECKET FUND AND LUKE GOODRICH

RUSSELL MOORE ON LUKE GOODRICH / book FREE TO BELIEVE

“Luke Goodrich is one of the nation’s most respected thought leaders in the arena of liberty of conscience.I hope many people ,both religious and secular will read this volume and recommit to a society where all consciences are free to believe, to worship,to serve, and to live.”
–RUSSELL MOORE, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention”
Goodrich and Becket Fund look to be offering a classic “Third Way” compromise for limited protections of Religious Liberty which the trained Biblical conservative eye will recognize as “conservatives yield protections  while progressive gain dominance
THE TOXIC MIX OF ERLC /&CAMPAIGN/ NEIGHBORLY (INTER) FAITH AND THE NEW RELIGIOUS LIBERTY ARE BOLSTERED BY THE “LEGAL ” ARGUMENT. 

ONE OF THE MAJOR PLAYERS IN THE NEW RELIGIOUS LIBERTY IS LUKE GOODRICH. 

HIS COLLABORATIONS AND BOOK TOUR RUN ACROSS THE SPECTRUM OF THE NEW RELIGIOUS LIBERTY ADVOCATES. 

Luke Goodrich of Becket Fund for Religious Liberty makes his case for Christians supporting Islamic rights in America  like the building of Mosque , Islamic Centers and Islamic Schools .His three point case for Christian support  reads like a heart felt -feeling your way through the issues. The narrative appears naive  while  being fully persuaded that the face of progressive leaders in America is the historic reality of Islam. The feel of the arguments are decidedly postmodern and ends with the social justice justification providing  mass appeal to young Christians  .

From Luke Goodrich book “Free to Believe ”

1.”An argument of Self Interest: Protecting Religious Freedom for Muslims helps protect religious freedom for Christians .”

2″An argument for Evangelism : Protecting Religious Freedom for Muslims helps more Muslims come to Christ “. ( however in presentations at Interfaith dialog groups like Neighborly Faith the “evangelism justification ” is refuted strongl. )

3:”An argument of JUSTICE : Protecting Religious Freedom for Muslims is the right thing to do. ”

Becket Fund and Goodrich regularly represent the rights of Muslims in the name of the New Redefined “Religious Liberty”.

ERLC’s Russell Moore has  been an aggressive public advocate for Muslim rights and the building of Mosque .

BECKET FUND IS ERLC’s RUSSELL MOORE RECURRENT  LEGAL PARTNER IN THE ADVOCACY FOR MOSQUE AND ISLAMIC RIGHTS.

“Joining the ERLC in the amicus brief were the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, International Society for Krishna Consciousness, National Association of Evangelicals, Sikh Coalition, South Asian Bar Association of New York and the Unitarian Universalist Legislative Ministry of New Jersey.”

 

TGC PROMOTION OF GOODRICK TALKING POINTS

Religious Liberty Is for Everyone’s Good

“According to Luke Goodrich’s new book, Free to Believe: The Battle over Religious Liberty in America, my high-school friends and I were surprisingly typical manifestations of how many evangelicals understand religious freedom in America.”

“For example, he explains how a bad Supreme Court decision on peyote-smoking for Native Americans created a precedent that, decades later, left Christian pharmacists no protection from being forced to distribute abortion drugs. Then there’s the story of how a court decision permitting a Muslim prisoner’s halal diet set the stage for a ruling protecting the Christian owners of Hobby Lobby from providing abortion drugs to their employees. Another story tells how a counseling student was expelled just a few credits short of graduation, because she asked to be recused from giving homosexual relationship advice to a client. She ended up winning in court and having her expulsion erased because, as the court explained, “Tolerance is a two-way street.”

“Gospel-Grounded Religious Freedom”

“Free to Believe explains some of the theology behind our concept of religious liberty and takes a deep dive into ways it’s both applied and also threatened in our country. The book offers stories, information, and practical points of action for people to defend their own religious liberties in ways that also respect others.”

“Most importantly, though, the book grounds its explanations not in tactics, strategy, or self-interest, but in the gospel. “Ultimately, our calling is not to respond to the religious freedom challenges ahead,” Goodrich says. “Our calling is to respond to Jesus.” That’s a worthy goal to keep in front of us as we navigate the details of what it means to walk as Christians in society—in Irmo and across our land.”

THE TGC REVIEW AUTHOR ALSO WORKS FOR GOODRICH FIRM

Ginger Blomberg is a homeschooling mother of five children, with students in high school, middle school, elementary school, and pre-K. She also manages one naughty beagle, two noisy gerbils, and a religious liberty attorney at Becket. She has been published in outlets such as The Federalist.”

A REALITY CHECK

LUKE GOODRICH VIEW OF WHY CHRISTIANS SHOULD SUPPORT MUSLIMS EFFORTS FOR RELIGIOUS LIBERTIES ADVANCE ISLAMS GROWTH IN AMERICA. 

BECKET FUND IS FIGHTING FOR MOSQUE IN CITIES LIKE MURFREESBORO TENNESSEE.

“Becket defends the Muslim community’s right to build a house of worship.”  

“The case was urgent—the congregation wanted to be allowed to use its mosque in time to celebrate Ramadan, the holiest time in the Muslim calendar.”

“So Becket filed a federal lawsuit seeking an emergency order allowing the congregation to use its mosque. We argued that subjecting the mosque to a higher legal standard than a Christian church violates the Free Exercise and Equal Protection Clauses of the Constitution.”

SPILLING OVER INTO CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN MEDIA 
JANET MEFFERD CONSERVATIVE TALK RADIO SHOW HOSTED NEW “RELIGIOUS LIBERTY ” /MOSQUE ADVOCATE LUKE GOODRICH ON HER PROGRAM OCTOBER 24 2019 .
THIS THE DAY BEFORE HE WAS ON THE PROGRESSIVE & CAMPAIGN PODCAST.

(NOTE this author has been on Janet Mefferd’s conservative program many times and she helped expose the radical Revoice LGBT FLOURISHING conference in the SBC and PCA circles in 2018 . What has changed since that time is uncertain but some people  have BEGUN expressing concerns that something is going on behind the scenes to impact such decisions on guest and programing of late. It is very disturbing that Janet Mefferd is promoting Luke Goodrich New Redefined “Religious Liberty”  ideals book to her conservative audience. )

10 – 24 – 19 – Janet – Mefferd – Today – Luke Goodrich (Religious Freedom)

 

Janet Mefferd has been very critical of INTERFAITH DIALOG by people like James White and of Russell Moore’s advocacy for the building of mosque in America yet she promoted one of the leading partners in both movements and his book to her radio audience just one day before Goodrich appeared on Wear’s &Campaign podcast.

Mefferd was also critical  in advance of the Wheaton Event before it was held on November 1st 2019 by Neighborly Faith and yet Luke Goodrich was a speaker at the Wheaton EVENT just days after appearing on her program to promote his book.

Goodrich book may need a warning label for Conservative Biblical Christian readers  who oppose redefining Religious Liberty and the promotion of Interfaith Dialog .

@shadihamid
“Evangelicals, in their engagement with Muslims, should feel comfortable being open and unapologetic about their commitment to Christ” This and some of my other thoughts in @Newsweek about a landmark Neighborly Faith Conference I recently attended:”

WHY PROMOTE THE NEW RELIGIOUS LIBERTY AND PROGRAMS RELATED TO IT ?

SIMPLY PUT -DEFENDING A REDEFINED RELIGIOUS LIBERTY AND IMMIGRATION REFORM MEANS FUNDING FOR THOSE WHO EMBRACE IT .

Organizations from World Relief to World Vision to the CCCU to denominational missions efforts like the SBCs INTERNATIONAL MISSIONS BOARD  likely find partnering with the New redefined Religious Liberty can pave the way  for grants and more large donors.

 

CHRISTIAN LEADERS AND “FAIRNESS TO ALL”  RELIGIOUS LIBERTY 

FINALLY IS “FAIRNESS TO ALL ” THE FULL SURRENDER OF CHRISTIAN RELIGIOUS LIBERTY IN AMERICA ?

HISTORY WILL MARK THIS SELL OUT BY SEVERAL MAJOR CHRISTIAN ENTITIES AS A MAJOR TURNING  POINT IN THE LOSS OF THE HISTORIC RELIGIOUS LIBERTY PROVIDED FOR CHRISTIANS IN THE US CONSTITUTION .

“LGBT-driven ‘Fairness for All’ adopted by evangelical organization will be ‘special rights for a few’

https://www.christianpost.com/voice/lgbt-driven-fairness-for-all-adopted-by-evangelical-organization-will-be-special-rights-for-a-few.html

“The recent action by the boards of two organizations who have been nationally visible as representing conservative evangelicals is “The Great Evangelical Sellout” for a number of critical reasons, not the least of which are wrongfully capitulating to one of the most deceptive Straw Men of modern cultural and political issues.  The National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) and the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) are supporting the inclusion of sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression in federal Civil Rights protections, a patent rejection of biblical truths, moral law and sound Constitutional principles.”

‘Fairness For All’: Smart Politics, Or A Sellout?

“Yesterday, World magazine published a big scoop, reporting that two major Evangelical Christian organizations backed seeking a compromise between Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity (SOGI) law supporters and those defending religious liberty. The “Fairness For All” idea is that these Evangelicals would support adding SOGI protections to federal antidiscrimination law in exchange for religious liberty guarantees written into the same law. Excerpt:”

The boards of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities (CCCU) and the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) quietly passed similar motions in recent months, advancing a multiyear effort they say is necessary to preserve religious freedom.

“As Christian higher educators, we are increasingly persuaded that the most viable political strategy is for comprehensive religious freedom protections to be combined with explicit support for basic human rights for members of the LGBT community,” Houghton College President Shirley Mullen—one of several people who sit on both boards—wrote in a position paper provided to NAE board members.

CCCU President Shirley Hoogstra announced her board’s vote to member presidents in August, but did not publicly announce the move.

The NAE motion—obtained by WORLD—unanimously passed in October. It’s titled “Fairness for All” and calls on Congress to consider federal legislation consistent with three principles:

• We believe that God created human beings in his image as male or female and that sexual relations be reserved for the marriage of one man and one woman.

• We support long-standing civil rights laws and First Amendment guarantees that protect free religious exercise.

• No one should face violence, harassment, or unjust discrimination on the basis of sex, sexual orientation, or gender identity.

“Some of my conservative friends — Catholic Ryan T. Anderson, and Evangelicals Denny Burk, Andrew T. Walker, and Russell Moore — have already criticized the proposal  as surrendering too much.” Rod Dreher

YET RUSSELL MOORE /ERLC CONTINUE THEIR OWN PATH TO SURRENDER OF RELIGIOUS LIBERTY FOR CHRISTIANS

IF THE CCCU IS WRONG ON “FAIRNESS TO ALL” WHY ARE ERLC AND RUSSELL MOORE WORKING WITH THEM IN SOME OF THE VERY ORGANIZATIONS LISTED IN THIS REPORT?

CCCU President Shirley Hoogstra is part of the Neighborly Faith “CONTRIBUTORS ” along with ERLCs Daniel  Darling a Russell Moore disciple .

Shirley is president of the Council for Christian Colleges & Universities.  Prior to her work with the CCCU, she served as Calvin College’s vice president for student life.”

The SBC ERLC and its’ International  Mission Board have filed legal briefs on behalf of Mosque.(with the Becket Fund of course)

“The International Mission Board (IMB) and Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) were 2 of 18 religious groups that filed an amicus brief decrying the Township of Bernards’ zoning board decision that required the proposed mosque to have more parking spaces than Christian or Jewish places of worship.”

The NAE offers its Voice with the Beckett Fund to support Mosque and the new Religious Liberty for Islamic Rights.

“The amicus brief, which was also signed by the National Association of Evangelicals and the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, argued that “such unequal treatment of the mosque in this case represents a potential threat to the free exercise rights of each of the amici represented here and is a affront to our nation’s commitment to religious liberty for all.”

WHERE WOULD REAL CHRISTIAN LEADERS LIKE THE APOSTLES AND PROPHETS BE ON SUCH EFFORTS? 

Addressing the Areopagus

IN ACTS 17 IN THE MIDST OF THE IDOLS OF ATHENS PAUL DID NOT FIND AFFINITY WITH OTHER RELIGIONS OR THEIR GODS BUT PREACHED THE ONE TRUE GOD AND AFFIRMED THE MESSAGE OF THE GOSPEL “THAT GOD COMMANDS ALL MEN EVERYWHERE TO REPENT ” .

The advocates of the New Religious Liberty are not confronting or calling on people of other religions to REPENT but seeking to find and encourage affinity with them.

Acts 17: 22 Then Paul stood in the midst of the [i]Areopagus and said, “Men of Athens, I perceive that in all things you are very religious; 23 for as I was passing through and considering the objects of your worship, I even found an altar with this inscription:

TO THE UNKNOWN GOD.

Therefore, the One whom you worship without knowing, Him I proclaim to you: 24 God, who made the world and everything in it, since He is Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in temples made with hands. 25 Nor is He worshiped with men’s hands, as though He needed anything, since He gives to all life, breath, and all things. 26 And He has made from one [j]blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings, 27 so that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us; 28 for in Him we live and move and have our being, as also some of your own poets have said, ‘For we are also His offspring.’ 29 Therefore, since we are the offspring of God, we ought not to think that the Divine Nature is like gold or silver or stone, something shaped by art and man’s devising. 30 Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, 31 because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”

 

JEREMIAH 2:7-13 

7. I brought you into a bountiful country,
To eat its fruit and its goodness.
But when you entered, you defiled My land
And made My heritage an abomination.
The priests did not say, ‘Where is the Lord?’
And those who handle the law did not know Me;
The rulers also transgressed against Me;
The prophets prophesied by Baal,
And walked after things that do not profit.

“Therefore I will yet [c]bring charges against you,” says the Lord,
“And against your children’s children I will bring charges.
10 For pass beyond the coasts of [d]Cyprus and see,
Send to [e]Kedar and consider diligently,
And see if there has been such athing.
11 Has a nation changed its gods,
Which are not gods?
But My people have changed their Glory
For what does not profit.
12 Be astonished, O heavens, at this,
And be horribly afraid;
Be very desolate,” says the Lord.
13 “For My people have committed two evils:
They have forsaken Me, the fountain of living waters,
And hewn themselves cisterns—broken cisterns that can hold no water.

 

Matthew 12:33-37

A Tree Known by Its Fruit

33 “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit. 34 Brood[a] of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 35 A good man out of the good treasure [b]of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. 36 But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. 37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

J.D. GREEAR USE TRANS PRONOUNS FROM REVOICE LEADER .

GREEAR MIGHT BE SBC PRESIDENT BUT HIS VIEWS ON LGBTQ+ SEXUALITYCOME STRAIGHT FROM REVOICE AND THE CULTURAL ABYSS 

By Thomas Littleton                                                                                                 11/24/2019

J D Greear is in his second term as President of the Southern Baptist Convention and the worst nightmares for those concerned about his less that Biblical moorings are coming true. This week it surfaced on his “Ask Me Anything ” podcast that Greear affirms the use of “preferred pronouns for transgender people”. Greear sources others in his position including Catholic Ryan Anderson and ERLC Andrew Walker but more shocking than his FOOLISH ASSERTION is that he uses a REVOICE LGBTQ FLOURISHING LEADER Preston Sprinkle  as his main source to make his  point that “using transgender pronouns is “PRONOUN  HOSPITALITY “. More on that in a moment .

Some of the Preston Sprinkle TRANS PRONOUN REASONING Greear uses .

“The arguments against pronoun accommodation summarized above all rely on two important assumptions about the nature of language. These assumptions are all the more powerful because they remain unstated:

  • Assumption #1: Pronoun gender always and only refers to an individual’s appointed sex.
  • Assumption #2: When our definitions of words differ from other people’s definitions, ‘telling the truth’ means using our own definitions” (11.6). “

(more on  problem with J.D. Greear using  Prestons Sprinkle as a source later)

This sad truth telling  of Greears  warped views  garnered some open rebuke .

Even the author of “The Benedict Option Ron Dreher saw Greears position as surrender. It really can’t get much worse than for Dreher to think your soft peddling LGBT.

A Top Pastor’s Culture War Surrender

“A Top Pastor’s Culture War Surrender”

 

J.D. Greear, president of the Southern Baptist Convention. His pronouns are he/him (ERLC screenshot)

Ron Dreher’s criticism –

Dreher critiques a bloggers view  and then tries to weigh in from the middle but comes back to some hard realities on what Greear is promoting .

“If the Democratic Party has its way, and passes the Equality Act — it passed the House this year, but the GOP Senate didn’t take it up — then the use of preferred pronouns will become a federal civil rights mandate.”

“So, look, I understand the desire for a pastor to be gracious to people he’s trying to evangelize, and not to enter into conversations with them from an adversarial position. But the pronoun issue is not merely a matter of courtesy. It means something substantively. The use of language creates social realities. ”

Others like Robert Gagnon expressed concern with “What is Happening to the SBC ” in a  Facebook post too long to repost here.

GREEARS VIEWS ON PRONOUN USE ARE A BIG DEAL SINCE HE IS SBC PRESIDENT. BUT FAR WORSE IS THE MAIN SOURCE OF HIS VIEW BENG FOUND IN THE REVOICE MOVEMENT.

It is likely far past time for Greear and other  SBC leaders like Russell Moore and Albert Mohler to own the reality that – REVOICE IS THE LOVECHILD OF THEIR LONG AFFAIR WITH LGBTQ ACTIVIST AND THE FAR LEFT .

GREEAR’S TAINTED WELL OF RESOURCES EXPLAINING HIS POSITION

When talking with a transgender person, which pronoun should you use?

When talking with a transgender person, which pronoun should you use?

NOVEMBER 18, 2019

Pastor J.D. discusses transgenderism, gender ambiguity, and the concept of pronoun hospitality.

“A glimpse inside this episode:”

Old maxim: Behind every question is a questioner.

  • When I hear a question like this, I immediately imagine the sort of person asking it. Sometimes it may be someone trying to pick a fight.
  • But behind those who identify as transgender, that experience is invariably a person filled with confusion, pain, and rejection.
  • Sadly, the church has often failed to be the sanctuary of the hurting for people in the LGBTQ community. We need to acknowledge that and repent of it.
  • Behind every case of ssa or gender dysphoria is a question about unanswered prayer.

Before we talk about trans pronouns, I think it may be helpful to talk a little bit about transgenderism more broadly.

WHO DOES GREEAR SOURCE 

A Catholic- Ryan Anderson

” Ryan AndersonWhen Harry Became Sally: Responding to the Transgender Moment

        • “He deals with these questions (about sex vs. gender, pronoun usage, etc) in a very straightforward while (usually) grace-filled way/”

 

ERLCs Andrew Walker – a Russell Moore disciple and Employee  a VERY close                                                                friend and coworker of Revoice leader Matthew Lee Anderson

 

Russell Moore’s disciple and employee says –

Andrew Walker: “My own position is that if a transgender person comes to your church, it is fine to refer to them by their preferred pronoun. .. If and when this person desires greater involvement or membership in the church, a church leader will need to meet with them and talk about how they identify. … The best solution is to avoid pronouns altogether if possible. Calling a person by their legal name or preferred name is more acceptable because names are not objectively gendered, but change from culture to culture.”

  • Best if you use the proper name over and over, even if it means it sounds weird

GREEAR DRAWS HIS PRONOUN USE FORM REVOICE SPRINKLE -THE FULL QUOTE

The full citing by Greear of Revoice leader Preston Sprinkle is below :

“Preston Sprinkle, who heads up The Center for Faith, Sexuality, and Gender, has a similar approach:”

  • “He calls it “pronoun hospitality.” 
  • The Bible appears to use accommodating language. ACTS 17. We know there is only one God.
  • You might find a correlation in “wives” in polygamous society / to a divorced man: “your adulteress”
  • I wouldn’t invest too much into language–”oh, I am lying” You can be clear in other ways.
  • “I’ll argue in this paper that the most biblical response to transgender people’s pronouns is a posture of unequivocal pronoun hospitality.”
  • That is, I believe that all Christians can and should use pronouns that reflect the expressed gender identities of transgender people, regardless of our views about gender identity ethics. If a person identifies herself to you as ‘she,’ I hope you will consider it an act of Christ-like love to call her ‘she’ out of respect, whether or not you believe that the way she expresses her gender identity is honoring to God” (11.1).
  • “What does it look like for people who think differently about gender identity ethics to speak truthfully and effectively about one another? This paper considers the common reasons given by Christian conservatives for rejecting the idea of pronoun hospitality, then challenges two assumptions about the nature of language that such arguments make and lays out an affirmative case for pronoun hospitality based in a robust understanding of how language works” (11.1).
    • “Christian arguments against pronoun accommodation—that is, using the pronouns with which trans people identify—are generally rooted in the importance of truth-telling. According to this view of language, the purpose of a pronoun is to make a statement about a person’s appointed sex” (11.4).
    • “Whereas [the truth-telling position] emphasizes the importance of truthfulness for the sake of personal integrity before God, Andrew Walker’s position focuses primarily on how his truthfulness will impact others who are listening to his words” (11.5).
  • “The arguments against pronoun accommodation summarized above all rely on two important assumptions about the nature of language. These assumptions are all the more powerful because they remain unstated:
    • Assumption #1: Pronoun gender always and only refers to an individual’s appointed sex.
    • Assumption #2: When our definitions of words differ from other people’s definitions, ‘telling the truth’ means using our own definitions” (11.6).
  • “When we apply Paul’s linguistic approach to the pronouns we use about transgender people, I believe we arrive at a posture of pronoun hospitality: a willingness to accommodate the pronouns of our transgender neighbors regardless of our own views about the Christian ethics of gender identity” (11.10).
  • Based off of Acts 17″

Southern Baptist president says he prefers to call transgender people by their chosen pronouns

No one was ever told what happened in this ERLC/ LGBT activist sit down in 2014 but we do know is that those SBC speakers like Moore. Mohler and Greear almost never mention that the LGBT agenda exist or speak to the end goals like the Radical Comprehensive Sexuality Education the activist seek to mandate in Pre K3 thru 12.

THE HOSPITALITY MYTH

Others in the SSA / Gay Christian TGC/ ERLC  conversation like Sam Allberry and Rosaria Butterfield use the “Hospitality Narrative” .

THE HOSPITALITY NARRATIVE  IS REALLY  WORN AND FLIMSY .

Rosaria Butterfield Calls You to (Radically Ordinary) Hospitality

https://www.christianitytoday.com/ct/2018/april-web-only/rosaria-butterfield-gospel-comes-house-key.html

https://rosariabutterfield.com/testimony-conversion-1

Singleness, Same-Sex Attraction, and the Church: A Conversation with Sam Allberry, Rosaria Butterfield, and Christopher Yuan

THE “HOSPITALITY NARRATIVE” IS BASED ON EZEKIEL 16 MENTION OF THE SIN OF SODOM

48 As I live,” says the Lord God, “neither your sister Sodom nor her daughters have done as you and your daughters have done. 49 Look, this was the iniquity of your sister Sodom: She and her daughter had pride, fullness of food, and abundance of idleness; neither did she strengthen the hand of the poor and needy.”

“GAY CHRISTIAN” AND OTHER LGBT ACTIVIST LOVE TO POINT TO THE VERSES ABOVE BUT CAREFULLY OMIT VERSE 50 & THE MENTION OF “COMMITTING ABOMINATION ”

 50 “And they were haughty and committed abomination before Me; therefore I took them away as I saw fit.”

LETS FORGET THE SENSITIVITY / HOSPITALITY  NARRATIVES AND COMMIT TO THE WORD OF THE LIVING GOD.

HAS THERE EVER BEEN A TIME WHEN THE BIBLE REFLECTS THE NEED TO REFLECT THE VIEWS OF THE WORLD AROUND US TO SHOW HOSPITALITY ? NO JUST THE OPPOSITE .

Living Sacrifices to God

Romans 12 I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your [b]reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

 

 

 

 

“ALMOST AL” MOHLER WANTS TO BE SBC PRESIDENT: ACTUALLY AL HAS CONTROLLED THE SBC FOR YEARS.

By Thomas Littleton                                                                                          11/22/2019                  WHY THE SBC DOES NOT NEED MORE ALBERT MOHLER LEADERSHIP

The Southern Baptist Convention is in trouble. Few doubt this reality. Many anticipate the SBC will split in the very near future over deepening divides like the false social justice gospel , women in the pulpits ,Revoice LGBT+ flourishing in the church and the open promotion of Critical Race Theory as a useful tool . An Albert Mohler SBC Presidency is seen by some as the answer to all that troubles Southern Baptist .

Mohler, prominent Southern Baptist, will be nominated to lead denomination

Is Mohler the answer ?  A close look at Albert  Mohler during all this proves he is at the epicenter of the problems plaguing Southern Baptist . One stark example is Mohler has boasted the pro egalitarian  #MeToo movement coming into the church is  the “Wrath of God Poured Out” on the SBC .

SOME REALITY CHECKS 

The persons who played the most active role in creating  the present atmosphere of division and “us against them ” climate in the SBC and who are driving the talking points of Social Justice , women’s rights , and Critical Race Theory / Intersectionality are part of the Mohler run SBTS institutions. Albert Mohler 20 plus year protege’ Russell Moore is the most polarizing figure , by design , in the SBC landscape . Most of the African American’s giving leadership to CRT promotion as a “useful analytical  tool when used with the Gospel ” are Mohler employees.

The emergence in 2018  of  the Revoice “LGBT+ Flourishing in (Conservative) Historic Tradition ” (like the SBC) was founded by one of Mohler’s long time SBTS disciples Nate Collins. Collins spent 14 1/2 years ,earned two degrees  at Mohler’s seminary , is the son of a faculty member, authored his pro LGBT+ Christian book “All But Invisible” AND launched Revoice while TEACHING NEW TESTAMENT  for Albert Mohler .

“ALMOST AL’s” HISTORY AS AN UNCERTAIN CONSERVATIVE 

Mohler enjoys great public respect for his reputation reforming SBTS and “saving it from the hands of liberals” in 1993 .While history makes Mohler out to be the brave conservative champion who played a major role in the “conservative resurgence”- Mohler’s close friend  MARK DEVER  of 9 MARKS confirms that during his formative years in two SBC institutions Mohler was “an egalitarian and DID NOT BELIEVE IN THE INERRANCY OF SCRIPTURE”.

( Watch the last 15 minutes of this 2017 interview with Founders Ministries Tom Ascol )

(MOORE SPEAKING UNDER THE WATCHFUL EYE OF MENTOR ALBERT MOHLER )

It is certainly not news that MANY Southern Baptist do not like Russell Moore. Moore launched his leadership of the ERLC in 2013 by declaring the “Culture war was over- we lost and we should stop the hateful rhetoric and just love our gay and lesbian neighbors”.

MOHLER AND MOORE HISTORY 

Moore is the boyish looking Mississippi Democrat who Mohler helped educate and who Mohler employed at SBTS for 20 YEARS before his ascent to the ERLC. Unlike Mohler, Russell Moore likes his high visibility role in the SBC. For some reason many who see Russell Moore for who he is fail to connect Moore to his mentor “Almost Al” Mohler .

MOHLER FROM 2013 INAUGURATION OF RUSSELL MOORE

MARKED URGENT

“The Man from Issachar—An Address at the Inauguration of Russell D. Moore”

“First, I point to the character and giftedness of this man. I can remember the very first conversation I had with Russell Moore. In that first meeting, I caught a glimpse of his intelligence, his conviction, and his ambitions. I knew then that he was out to change the world, but that his first loyalty and constant horizon is not this world, but the world that is already but not yet—in other words, not the kingdoms of this world but the Kingdom of our God and of His Christ.”

“His intellect is first rate, as is his scholarship. He came as a Doctor of Philosophy student and transformed his doctoral dissertation into a manifesto for kingdom ministry and cultural engagement. His intelligence is energetic and his wit always on hand. To talk with Russ is to enter into a world of ideas undergirded by conviction and footnoted with readings.”

“He is not merely fascinated by ideas, he is a true public intellectual. He belongs to that class of thinkers who are not merely collectors of ideas but movers of minds. He is a master of communicating those ideas and he knows how to make truth come alive as a living force.”

“He is one of the most natural conversationalists I have ever encountered. He is like the Victorians who could enter any room and join the conversation and immediately add to it. He is a voracious reader who is a walking bibliography and a library on legs. He comes alive when a book or an idea or a problem or a personality comes to attention.”

“In 1 Chronicles 12:32, we read of the men of the tribe of Issachar, “who had understanding of the times, to know what Israel ought to do.” We know Russell Moore as a man from Mississippi. I think he is really a man from Issachar. I think he has an understanding of the times, and he knows what God’s people ought to do.”

“”The man and the moment have come together and, like you, I don’t for a moment believe it is a coincidence.

RUSSELL MOORE – NEVER TRUMPER WAS PLACED ON A SHORT LEASH BY THE SBC BUT NOW OPENLY PARADES HIS  COZY RELATIONSHIP TO OBAMA POWERBROKERS 

At 20 years old Michael Wear was appointed to Obama’s Faith Based Partnership leadership in 2008 and then served as his Faith Outreach coordinator for the 2012 re-election campaign. Today he serves as the Obama Foundation Ambassador to America’s Believers”.

Al Mohler’s protege’  Russell Moore and Michael Wear work TOGETHER in The Gospel Coalition and the Social Justice movement . Moore and Wear just appeared AGAIN in the open borders funded National Immigration Forum pushing for amnesty and for more MUSLIM refugee resettlement in the US in the name of “immigration reform”.

WEAR AND THE & CAMPAIGN 

Also Wear just recently helped launch the 2020 election statement of the “& Campaign” which seeks to influence CHRISTIAN VOTERS toward progressive political views marketing them as “Biblical Values & Social Justice”

Mohler’s Protege’ Moore endorsed the Michael Wear book “Reclaiming Hope ” about Wear’s years in the Obama Administration.

“We can Hope, this book Can Help us”. Russell Moore

“Reclaiming Hope: Lessons Learned in the Obama White House About the Future of America (Nelson Books; $25.99; see our 20% off sale price at the order link below.)  I think many readers will enjoy it, will learn much, and that regardless of one’s affiliation (or non-affiliation) with a political party, it will be a valuable, even important read.  The book is graced with bunches of rave reviews from significant political leaders from across the political spectrum (from several countries, no less) and many respected Christian leaders – from Tim Keller to Russell Moore, pundits, (from Kirsten Powers to E. J. Dionne) and writers as different as J.D. Vance and Ann Voskamp, all insisting this is an important, graceful book.”

Beth Moore

“Beth founded Living Proof Ministries in 1994 with the purpose of teaching women how to love and live on God’s Word. She has written numerous books and Bible studies that have been read by women of all ages, races, and denominations. Through the years, American missionaries and expatriates have taken the Bible studies overseas, resulting in Beth Moore Bible study groups popping up all over the world. Beth’s Living Proof Live conferences have taken her to all fifty states since 1994.”

RUSSELL MOORE HAS BEEN ON A BETH MOORE TARE FOR YEARS.

Beth Moore reignites debate over whether women can preach

The  #Metoo movement has been the perfect tool for Mohler disciple Russell Moore to drive the issue of women in ministry in the SBC in order ” to prevent more sexual abuse and the covering up of abuse”. Russell has made her part of his effort to launch a task force of “SBC Brown Shirts” to seek out , INVESTIGATE and address reports of sexual abuse. These efforts culminated at the 2019 SBC annual meetings in Birmingham Alabama in the approval of the “Repurposed Standing Credentials Committee “. The Committee makes possible a  power grab over local church autonomy and a perfect vehicle for driving the #MeToo movement in the SBC to desired end of some  : total pro egalitarian policy.

(SBC present leadership seems to like creating theater  to drive it’s political views and goals the recent Naples FBC dust up over racism over  an SBC Executive Committee Members failed bid for the pastorate looks to be the perfect case for the “Committee’s” intervention and in Florida where the 2020 Convention will be held.)

FLORIDA SBC 2020 LOOKS TO BE SETTING THE STAGE 

 

The Standing Credentials Committee, according to Mohler trained  leader Curtis Brown,  will also address racial and homosexual discrimination /abuse issues in SBC churches . “BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (BP) — Sexual abuse and racism would draw heightened action within the Southern Baptist Convention under recommendations to be considered during the June 11-12 SBC annual meeting in Birmingham, Ala.”
“A key recommendation, approved by the SBC Executive Committee in its June 10 meeting, calls for repurposing the SBC Credentials Committee to field claims against churches in regard to SEXUAL ABUSE and DISCRIMINATION  based on ETHNICITY  as well as matters such as HOMOSEXUALITY  that would call their relationship with the SBC into question.” ( NOTE that Discrimination is the only target here but not only against women .This is the social justice VICTIM COALITION framed by Cultural Marxist thought)

MOHLER /MOORE AND LGBTQ+ 

MOHLER AND MOORE DISAVOW THE GOSPEL /OWN LGBT ORIENTATION IN 2014 ERLC CONFERENCE TOGETHER  THE LGBTQ+ SBC CONFERENCE THAT CHANGED EVERYTHING AND NOTHING .

In 2014 the ERLC held its game changer event on the LGBT+ narrative .

THE ERLC National Conference on “The Gospel, Homosexuality, and the Future of Marriage”

https://erlc.com/resource-library/event-messages/by-conference/2014-national-conference

In his opening speech Albert Mohler completely abandoned his long asserted Biblical stance denying the existence of a  “homosexeual orientation ” . Mohler apologized for himself and Southern Baptist for being “wrong about sexual orientation “. Mohler then owned  the APA version of human sexual norms  and then abandoned so called “ex gay ministries” and efforts to help people wanting out of homosexuality .

https://erlc.com/resource-library/event-messages/aftermath-ministering-in-a-post-marriage-culture-albert-mohler

After raising eyebrows ( and grave concerns ) with the ERLC homosexual orientation speech Al Mohler set out to explain in this episode of “The Briefing ”

https://albertmohler.com/2014/11/13/sexual-orientation-and-the-gospel-of-jesus-christ/

“One of these issues is sexual orientation. As I explained in my address, I had previously denied the existence of sexual orientation. I, along with many other evangelicals, did so because we did not want to accept the sexual identity structure that so often goes with sexual orientation. I still reject that notion of sexual identity. But I repented of denying the existence of sexual orientation because denying it was deeply confusing to people struggling with same-sex attraction. Biblical Christians properly resist any suggestion that our will can be totally separated from sexual desire, but we really do understand that the will is not a sufficient explanation for a pattern of sexual attraction. Put simply, most people experiencing a same-sex attraction tell of discovering it within themselves at a very early age, certainly within early puberty. As they experience it, a sexual attraction or interest simply “happens,” and they come to know it.”

Yet Mohler’s historic 2005 Biblical denial of the APA and LGBT+ activist  efforts to normalize homosexuality via the assertion of “Homosexual Sexual Orientation “was clearly explained in a statement linked below  .

Why did he change his position given what he admits the Authority of SCRIPTURE is at stake in abandoning the Biblical position  for the “orientation narrative ?

NOTE THE 2005 POSITION OF MOHLER ON THE BIBLICAL VS ORIENTATION NARRATIVE

““The critical issue used as a hermeneutical device by the revisionists is the concept of sexual orientation. The modern “discovery” of sexual orientation is used to deny the truth claim clearly and inescapably made within the biblical text. For example, in regard to the Romans text, Janet Fishburn of Drew University Theological School argues: “Yet, some biblical scholars point out that this passage can only refer to the homosexual acts of heterosexual persons. This is because the writers of the Bible did not distinguish between homosexual orientation and same-gender sexual acts. If this distinction is accepted, the condemnation of homosexuality in Romans does not apply to the sexual acts of homosexual persons.”

https://albertmohler.com/2005/10/04/homosexuality-in-theological-perspective-part-two/

IN MOHLER’S ERLC 2014 SPEECH AT PROTEGE’ RUSSELL MOORE’S EVENT MOHLER TOOK THE SBC TALKING POINTS OUTSIDE THE AUTHORITY OF SCRIPTURE AND INTO THE ACTIVIST LANGUAGE AND FRAMEWORK. 

This ERLC 2014 event also introduced a herd of new speakers  like Sam Allberry , Rosaria Butterfield , Christopher Yuan , Jacky Hill Perry. They along with other Same Sex Attracted “Christians ” engage an ongoing conversation in the SBC to hard sell homosexual orientation and engage the ERLC’s and TGC Process of Social Change in the SBC and conservative Christian churches and institutions .

MOHLER’S CRITICAL RACE THEORY DISCIPLES 

Mohler was part of the 2015 book “Removing the Stain of Racism in the SBC” .At the SBC Dallas 2018 meetings they featured the three year old book on the CP stage and free copies of it were provided in the press room .A stage panel presentation of the book in 2018 including Mohler made a casual mention of Critical Race Theory but did not draw any attention to it. This was perhaps best understood as a public test run of CRT for SBC 2019 in Birmingham where some of the very same SBTS/ Mohler disciples took CRT to CENTER STAGE  in Resolution 9 “approving CRT and Intersectionality as a useful analytical tools with the gospel ” ( for identifying discrimination would be the implication of its use).

The Gospel Coalition of which Albert Mohler is a part also promoted this event to it’s Themelios pastors audience .

Jarvis Williams and  Curtis Woods are both SBTS educated and part of the CRT practitioners in the SBC . Both served in the 2019 Resolutions Committee which altered the resolution condemning CRT into an affirmation of it. Both teach at SBTS under Mohler .

JARVIS WILLIAMS AT SBTS

CURTIS WOODS AT SBTS

This same team of CRT experts led a two year effort to purge SBTS of it’s own history of racism which went public  in December 2018. The “report ” exposes some horrific history like that of Joseph Emerson Brown whose wealth and “generosity” twice “saved SBTS” from bankruptcy and endowed a Theological Chair at SBTS .

“Almost Al” Mohler and the Report stop short of exposing that Albert Mohler sits on the racist Joseph Emerson Brown’s endowed Chair of Theology at SBTS. It took  a student confronting Mohler in one of his “Ask Me Anything ” public appearances to bring out that fact.

ALMOST TRUTH ON LGBTQ+ REVOICE 

THE WHOLE REVOICE STORY AL MOHLER WILL NOT TELL 

Revoice is promoting LGBT+ Flourishing under the banner of  SIDE B “celibacy or mixed orientation  marriage ”

Nate Collins is Revoice founder and is an SBTS long time student , graduate and New Testament Teacher at the time Revoice was founded .

Revoice Nate Collins taught New Testament at Mohler’s SBTS as Nate and his father Chip, also a teacher at Boyce College SBTS undergrad were working with Exodus International during it’s 2013 collapse . This was the start of abandon of the idea of EX GAY MINISTRIES . It was also SBTS Collins who reviewed and promoted Sam Allberry’s book”Is God Anti Gay” for The Gospel Coalition as Allberry was launched to the US church audience by the 2014  ERLC “Homosexual Orientation “conference of Mohler and Moore .

THE REVOICE CONTROVERSY WAS HUGE AND MAY YET PLAY A KEY ROLE IN SPLITTING THE SBC AND CONSERVATIVE PRESBYTERIANS LIKE THE PCA

In Al Mohler’s belated “Almost” condemnation of Revoice in August 2 2018 episode of The Briefing  Mohler at LONG LAST  mentions Nates Collins . In fact he names Collins 9 times but NEVER CONNECTS Nate Collins to SBTS -Mohler’s seminary

CAN TWO WALK TOGETHER UNLESS THEY ARE AGREED ?

MOHLER AND MOORE NOW HAVE A NEARLY THIRTY YEAR HISTORY.

(From 2013 “Southern Baptist Theological Seminary’s outgoing theology school dean Russell Moore, left, and President R. Albert Mohler Jr., lead a graduation procession at the seminary on Friday, May 17. Moore, who has also been the senior vice president for academic administration, officially becomes the president of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission on June 1. Photo courtesy of Emil Handke/Southern Baptist Theological Seminary”)

“Almost Al” Mohler and Russell Moore are birds of a feather. Mohler , according to good friend Mark Dever and Founders Ministries , held very liberal views as a young  undergrad at Samford University . Mohler then attended liberal SBTS for his graduate degrees. The “conservative Mohler ” emerged SUDDENLY  to the shock of both his liberal friends and his new found conservative resurgence companions in the SBC.

TODAY overwhelming indicators from SBTS role in Critical Race Theory and Revoice to Mohler protege Russell Moore’s push of Beth Moore and Obama Foundation politics of Michael Wear prove the influence of Mohler in the SBC could  hardly be viewed as conservative at all.

In recent days Mohler’s presidential aspirations were lauded by liberal non profit publication Religion News Service . In the article RNS portrays Mohler as the moderate uniter .

Mohler, prominent Southern Baptist, will be nominated to lead denomination

So who is “Almost Al” Mohler really? Is he the same man of his youth – a pro egalitarian and anti- inerrancy student who changed his appearance ,climbed the SBC ladder and simply hid among the conservative resurgence leaders for decades at SBTS? Or has the reborn truly conservative Al Mohler backslidden into his old ways ? Can Mohler be the “moderate uniter” as the RNS now seeks to portray him as they further seek to vilify the conservative resurgence as RACIST?

The one certainty is that Albert Mohler has already been leading the Southern Baptist for years and we still really do not know who he is.

What we should know is we do not need him for SBC President nor do we need the Obama Politics of his protege’ Moore  nor the promotion of more Beth Moore  by Moore in the SBC. We do NOT NEED the CRT of Mohler’s  hand picked minority task force at SBTS nor the Revoicing for LGBT Flourishing of Mohler’s long time disciple SBTS New Testament professor Nate Collins.

The SBC needs help. It has had more than enough of Almost Al Mohler .
