SALVATON ARMY WOKENESS LEADS ALL THE WAY TO “U N GLOBAL GOALS”, FEMINIST AGENDA AND TEACHING KIDS ABOUT”SOCIAL JUSTICE”

THE SLAVATION ARMY CAN NO LONGER HIDE THE TROUBLING FUTURE IT HAS CAST FOR ITSELF. THE WOKE JUSTICE MOVEMENT WHICH LED THEM TO DEMAND DONORS REPENT OF RACISM DID GAINED ATTENTION. YET THE APOSTATE COMPROMISE RUNS MUCH DEEPER.

Rev Thomas Littleton

12/3/2021

Another historic Christian Institution is gone down the worm hole of the United Nations Global Justice Sustainability Goals. There is NO coming back.

By 2014 it was obvious that the Salvation army was veering sharply to the left and appeasing activist culture like the Human Rights Campaign .

By the time you heard the Christmas donor bells ringing during shopping season the situation had obviously gotten much worse as the Salvation Army released a GUIDE asking white donors to repent of racism. YET a deeper look at the Salvation Army’s International Social Justice Commission and its work with the United Nations proves just how far the once Gospel centered ministry has fallen.

WHY WE SEEK JUSTICE

  • To promote a vision of justice based on the life and teaching of Jesus Christ.
  • To advocate and advise on social, economic, political issues and events which lead to the perpetuation of injustice in the world.
  • To amplify the voices of poor, marginalized and oppressed people and translate their real life insights into policies, practices and life-giving opportunities.

‘”God is still leading and blessing the Army. With that comes a clear call … to link who we are with the very essence of what we do, the mission that is ours. […] It is a call to be a justice-focused Army.’- The Officer – July-September 2018

THE FULL GLOBAL GOALS BUY IN OF SALVATION ARMY

The UN Sustainable Development Goals are the globalist dream list of redistribution and global governance attainments and how to nuance compliance of them by faith based organizations to serve in the grand scheme called Agenda 2030 . Other “Christian” organizations have already sold out to the Globalist like the Lausanne Movement , Rick Warren’s Purpose Driven and PEACE Plan and the Catholics current Pope Francis who in Sept 2015 fully embraced the scheme at the UN itself. At that time the shortened timeline for attaining the Global Goals controls had been by 2050 but the progress under the Obama administration had enabled 20 years to be shaven off the timeline and the movement renamed Agenda 2030.

HERE IS SALVATION ARMY IN ITS OWN GLOBAL GOALS ALIGNMENT WORDS

Why should we get involved with the SDGs?

“The fact that world leaders agreed on a set of goals reflecting values which The Salvation Army has promoted for 125 years is something to be welcomed – especially as it can result in positive change for the poorest and most vulnerable people. The goals identify issues and promote values very familiar to Salvationists: equality of all people with no discrimination; the well‐being of all people with all people able to flourish; being good stewards of the earth and its resources; seeking peace and security for all people. These are values that shine through the Bible and have inspired Christians for more than 2000 years. All people, without exception, are made in the image of God and are equally precious to him (Genesis 1:27‐31). In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus declared: ‘Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God’ (Matthew 5:9). Jesus declared that he came that we might ‘have life and life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10). The SDGs recognise a lesson The Salvation Army learnt many years ago – people and communities need to participate in their own development. In addition, The Salvation Army recognises the importance of integration. Just as God created people as integrated persons with body and soul so those seeking to participate in God’s mission to save the world should not fragment services or treat only the body while trying to ignore the soul and spiritual healing. General André Cox is encouraging The Salvation Army to focus attention on the SDGs in every programme. This does not mean only in the developing world. The goals are universal, for every nation, for all people, everywhere.”

“The International Social Justice Commission is The Salvation Army’s strategic voice to advocate for human dignity and social justice with the world’s poor and oppressed. Building on The Salvation Army’s participation in the United Nations since 1947, the International Social Justice Commission has embraced the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as a focus of its research, teaching, policy, and coalition-building work. The International Social Justice Commission staff are deployed in New York, Vienna, Geneva and Nairobi.The Salvation Army International Social Justice Commission (ISJC) promotes constructive conversation and respect among individuals. In participating on this page users agree to respect other people’s differences and engage in mutual understanding. The ISJC reserves the right to remove or edit any comments that it considers inappropriate or unacceptable.”

SALVATION ARMY WANTS TO THINK THE WORLD HAS ALIGNED WITH THE GOSPEL AND THE SALVATION ARMYS MISSION?

REALLY ?

While Intersectionality is ravaging the Southern Baptist Church and other denominations and setting them up to be pillaged by the feminist /metoo movement and forced into “Diversity Equity and Inclusion” culture -the Salvation Army has chosen to be an ally for the feminist justice /intersectionality march through the institutions.

NOTE the Salvation Army has always been an egalitarian movement so why does it need to champion feminine theory calls for “justice” ?

SOME OF THE KEY ELEMENTS OF THE PARTNERSHIP WITH GLOBAL JUSTICE

CRY JUSTICE “

The international Salvation Army is being called to prioritise prayer, specifically for justice on behalf of women and girls.

“In every context of injustice females suffer most. Globally, women do three times more unpaid care work than men. The gap is largest in Northern Africa and Western Asia, but it exists in every region. Globally one in two women who are murdered are murdered by a male partner or family member. 71 per cent of all trafficking victims globally are females.”

“Our hearts anguish to see the images and read the headlines. We cry out for justice in the streets, and before God in prayer.”

“We cry for justice because of the image of God in every human being, the God revealed in Jesus Christ, the One who loves justice, and works justice for all the oppressed (Psalm 33:5103:6).”

“Will you join us in seeking justice together, by crying out to God in prayer for justice in the earth, following the example of the persistent widow as described by Jesus? ‘And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off?’”

“WOMEN LEADING IN THE CHURCH”

(NOTE THE JUSTICE AND RACIAL NARRATIVES DEVELOPED BY THE QUESTIONS IN THIS SALVATION ARMY EVENT.)

What challenge have you faced as women of colour leaders? What has it been like to sit at the decision-making tables?

What difference do you think it makes to have Women of Colour at the table where decision are binging made? How has it taken shape in your own experience as leaders.

What violence against Women and girls do you see that needs to be eliminated in the context of the Church?

Is the Church ahead or behind of the larger society when it comes to embracing Women’s leadership? How do we model that in the church?

SALVATION ARMY WANTS TO TEACH KIDS SOCIAL JUSTICE INDOCTRINATION

WORKING WITH SAVE THE CHILDREN SALVATION ARMY IS PUTTING FORTH THIS GUIDE

“12 TIPS YOU CAN TRUST:
Talking with Children About Racism
and Social Justice”

“Every child has the right to grow up healthy, educated and safe – regardless of race, gender or socioeconomic status. Systemic change to end racism is essential to achieving this vision.
Save the Children was founded over 100 years ago to fight for universal values and
children’s rights. However, we also live in a society that still suffers from a legacy of
institutional racism. This is a difficult time for America, and for anyone who believes in and is fighting for a more just world.
Save the Children remains committed to fighting for what is right and against injustices. We proudly stand in solidarity with the Black community.
As you seek ways to navigate conversations with children in your life about recent events, including violence, and race in America, we are here for you. We know that these are not easy conversations to have. Nor are they a one-time occurrence. There is also no unique individual or organization that holds all the answers to every question that may arise. But we encourage you to use the following tips to start a conversation or as a continuation, aimed at helping children to better understand what is happening around them.”

THE SALVATION ARMY PARTNERSHIPS WITH THE UNITED NATIONS IN SOCIAL JUSTICE PROVIDE ANNUAL REPORTS. ON THIER APOSTATE ACCOMPLISHMENTS

“The high-level political forum on sustainable development (HLPF) is the core United Nations platform for follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals.”

“The meeting of the HLPF in 2021 was held from Tuesday, 6 July, to Thursday, 15 July 2021, under the auspices of the Economic and Social Council. This included the three-day ministerial meeting of the forum from Tuesday, 13 July, to Thursday, 15 July 2021

SALVATION ARMY PLAYS THE RACE CARD

“LET’S TALK ABOUT RACISM”

Consistent with its scriptural foundations, The Salvation Army stands against racism in all forms. Our International Positional Statement on Racism makes that clear.

“Elements of the recently issued “Let’s Talk About Racism” guide led some to believe we think they should apologize for the color of their skin, or that The Salvation Army may have abandoned its Biblical beliefs for another philosophy or ideology. That was never our intention, so the guide has been removed for appropriate review.”

SALVATION ARMY AND “REFUGEE CARE”

“THE SALVATION ARMY
INTERNATIONAL POSITIONAL STATEMENT
REFUGEES AND ASYLUM SEEKERS”

“The Salvation Army is gravely concerned for the needs of the millions of people who are refugees and asylum seekers. People are fleeing their homes and countries because of a well-founded fear of persecution. Many of these people have experienced significant grief and trauma, which have potential long-term consequences for their health and well-being.”
“The Salvation Army recognises that the ability to seek asylum is a basic human right, with all people having the right to life, liberty and security of person. The Salvation Army supports international efforts to eliminate persecution and displacement through the promotion of peace, tolerance, understanding and respect for human life and dignity.
God’s hospitable loving concern for the stranger and foreigner are evident in Scripture and therefore, The Salvation Army contends that individuals and governments should act compassionately and humanely towards persons seeking asylum.”

SALVATION ARMY LOST IN AND ENDLESS CIRCLE OF DEADLY DIALOG WITH NO GRASP ON THE GOSPEL

IDD

“International Discussion Documents aim is to stimulate personal reflection rather than to provide conclusive positions. The hope is that these documents will better equip Salvationists to contribute towards broader dialogue or help inform personal choices related to the issue.”

CONCLUSION

The Salvation Army provides ample proof that it has joined the growing list of lost organizations who have joined globalist to build TOWARD the very kind of end time prophetic fulfillment ensuring its own demise as a Christ honoring and Gospel proclaiming organization. NO organization- no matter how solid it was in its origins or how much fruit it may have born in the past – has ever recovered it’s God given calling from this apostate abyss.

Somewhere -someone -somehow enticed the Salvation Army to sell its most precious possession .

Genesis 25:29-34

29 And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint:

30 And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom.

31 And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.

32 And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?

33 And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.

34 Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.”

TIM KELLER, KERN $$/FAITH & WORK ,AND THE FEMINIST MOVEMENT TO DESTROY BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY

FOR YEARS NOW TIM KELLER HAS INHABITED THE LEADING EDGE OF CHRISTIAN “INFLUENCERS” PROMOTING “HUMAN FLOURISHING” /TIME TO FLOURISH/ FAITH AND WORK / AND THE GLOBAL PUSH OF SOCIAL JUSTICE AS THE HEART OF THE GOSPEL.

NOW KELLER’S FAITH & WORK TEAM HAVE JOINED WITH FULLER SEMINARY/ DE PREE CENTER TO DRIVE THE WOMENS MOVEMENT FOR DIVERSITY ,EQUITY AND INCLUSION WORLD WIDE.

Rev Thomas Littleton

11/30/2021

Tim Keller has long been credited as a leading Christian thinker and intellectual and was even crowned with titles like “the new CS Lewis ” or “the new John Stott”. Keller has driven a constant narrative of “Human Flourishing” /Thriving Cities/ Common Ground for the Common Good / and Christian Civility in a pluralistic society . But no other area of Keller’s efforts has more openly provided insight into his actual inspiration and the political motivations ( at least in part political) than his leading edge work with the Faith and Works Economics through his Redeemer Center For Faith and Works. It embraces the social justice narratives with fervor. Since at least 2019 the Fuller Seminary De Pree Center has been using Faith and Works programing funded by Kern Family Fundation and partnering with Tim Keller’s Center for Faith and Work leaders to drive a radical feminist justice narrative.

Some history -Keller Faith and Work Partnering organizations include :

MADE TO FLOURISH

ACTON INSTITUTE

ECONOMIC WORKS PROJECT

THEOLOGY OF WORK PROJECT

CENTER FOR PUBLIC CHRISTIANITY

THE GOSPEL COALITION (ALSO OF TIM KELLER)

FAITH FOR THE COMMON GOOD

And literally dozens more.

The primary coordination and funding for Faith and Works “economics “has come from Action Institute who provides the curriculum for the centers, schools and seminaries and funding has been through and from the Kern Family Foundation .By 2014 Kern took parts of its operations offshore to the Cayman Islands making it much more difficult to track the inflow and outflow of money. Oikonomia Network is a Kern Organization which solicits and trains scholars for placement in institutions and on campuses to promote the Faith and Works ideologies and OVERSEE the grants and outcomes.

Since at least 2015 this effort has been exposed to be the ROOT OF THE FALSE SOCIAL JUSTICE MOVEMENT in evangelical seminaries and institutions.

The Faith and Works efforts have relied heavily on public faces like Tim Keller and his Faith and Works developer Katherine Leary Alsdorf, and marketing resources like their coauthored book “Every Good Endeavor” in 2012 to promote the brand.

( Pictured Keller and Alsdorf in one of their multitude of F&W events)

NOW IT CAN BE DOCUMENTED THAT THE FAITH AND WORKS EFFORTS FUNDED BY KERN ARE PLAYING A KEY ROLE IN THE ADVACE OF “INTERSECTIONAL JUSTICE” FOR CHRISTIAN WOMEN.

Intersectionality is the movement behind the #metoo call for justice which is currently sweeping through Christian institutions. It goals are part of the use of Critical Theories on Race, (CRT) Gender, Sexual Orientation (Queer Theory) to drive social change within Christian faith. It presumes institutional guilt and makes the demand for justice and change.

The leading edge of the spear being tossed at Christianity is the Metoo movement which is said to address Sex Abuse scandals of the past and provide the “path forward”. That Path Forward “Road Ahead”,as we shall see, will be using tools like the Faith and Work for women and justice in the workplace including churches and Christian institutions. This is the application of Intersectionality to bring the justice cause of the “oppressed gender” (according to the narratives) to light and to sweep through the “oppressive systems dominated male toxic male masculinity and patriarchal male culture”. At least that is what is promised.

In the case of the current trend now clearly supported by Tim Keller/ Kern /Faith and Works (and many more ) this attack on masculinity is being perverted to be a Gospel issue and promise a better world despite its anti biblical , anti gender, anti family, anti Christ focus. (Anti Christ because the movement downplays the biblical role of women in faith, motherhood, family , and in the church.

WHAT IS INTERSECTIONALITY

“Intersectionality within CRT points to the multidimensionality of oppressions and recognizes that race alone cannot account for disempowerment. “Intersectionality means the examination of race, sex, class, national origin, and sexual orientation, and how their combination plays out in various settings.”[1] This is an important tenet in pointing out that CRT is critical of the many oppressions facing people of color and does not allow for a one–dimensional approach of the complexities of our world.” ( Activist at UCLA definition)

(DOUBT THE SEVERITY OF THESE FORCES CONVERGING? READ ON.)

SOMEWHERE OVER THE JUSTICE/ INTERSECTIONALITY RAINBOW

In 2017 Oikonomia Network -the Kern Family Foundation’s campus oversight and implementation organization -confirmed it had secured funding and influence into Fuller Seminary.

“One year ago, Fuller Seminary joined the Oikonomia Network because we embraced ON’s vision and were eager to join with other seminaries in the vital work of “helping pastors equip people for whole-life discipleship, fruitful work and economic wisdom.”

THE KERN FULLER WORK AT THE DE PREE CENTER

“Though Fuller addresses whole-life discipleship, including work and economics, in its classes and a wide variety of programs, Fuller’s Max De Pree Center for Leadership focuses its efforts on these issues. The De Pree Center exists to serve marketplace leaders so they might live intentionally and wisely as disciples of Jesus in every part of life, including their daily work. The center does this by serving both marketplace leaders and churches through theologically rich resources and contextual experiences that meet the needs of marketplace leaders and the churches eager to serve them.”

“For example, the De Pree Center publishes Life for Leaders, a daily digital devotional that makes regular connections between faith, work and leadership. Life for Leaders is emailed without charge to over 4,600 subscribers each morning. The center also sponsors the Church & Marketplace network, which is a “network of marketplace leaders helping churches become incubators of faith and work integration.” It offers resources, hosts events, oversees a speakers’ bureau, and serves churches that are eager to grow in vocational integration.”

WHERE THE MONEY AND THE INTERSECTIONALITY IS .

Fuller’s De Pree Center is part of the lager Faith and Works cabal network including the Made to Flourish, Common Ground , Keller, Marketplace Ministry, New City Fellows, Center for Public Christianity, etc organizations.

A DE PREE CENTER INTERVIEW WITH KELLERS F&W HEAD KATHERINE LEARY ALSDORF

“Lean in” is “lean into yourself” — “you can do it!” “You’ve got what it takes baby.” But whether you’re male or female, our “lean in” has to be “lean into God.” God wants us to be risk-takers and get out of our comfort zone and respond to our callings in the world — not on our own strength but by leaning into him. I want to meet her and I pray for her that she will understand that there’s a God to lean into in the brokenness of ourselves and the marketplace. How can change happen? How do we make this a better more flourishing world for everyone? We’ve got resources in the Word of God and in our relationship with God that provides so much more hope — a more realistic hope than just leaning into our own competencies.”

Missy Wallace Vice President Executive Director Global Faith & Work Initiative of Keller’s Center for Faith and Works is also involved in work at the De Pree Center at Fuller.

FULLER’S DE PREE CENTER FOCUS ON DIVERSITY EQUITY AND INCLUSION OF WOMEN IN THE FAITH AND WORKS PROGRAMING

DE PREE CENTER SAMPLES OF ACTIVSM IN “FAITH AND WORK”

ESTHER THE ACTIVIST

“Out of the tribe of Benjamin, forcefully living under the empire of Babylon, there was a certain young woman. She was not your average person. She could have been written off as a statistic with low chances of success. She was an ethnic minority, an orphan, and a female in a male-dominant society. Her name was Hadassah, and she was beautiful.”

Though queen, she too had a glass ceiling to which she’d become accustomed. Attempting to break it would mean getting cut.

“If the king didn’t extend his scepter to her, she would lose her life. Would he? In this moment, she did not approach him as his wife or his beloved. She came as the minority-queen-activist— Queen Hadassah-Esther: a Jewish woman of intellect and strategy, of position and power.”

BELOW THE GLASS CEILING

“As much as I’d like to imagine that the men I look up to as mentors or as bosses seek to include me as much as they do with my male peers, I have to face the reality that that’s not always the case. The reality that I’ve experienced is that, more often than not, the men I’ve worked with or around tend to stick together. This goes for Christian and non-Christian circles alike. In church leadership, in school, and in the workplace, there seems to be this unspoken bond of “apprenticeship,” that male mentors and bosses share with other men who are trying to work their way up the ladder.”

SHE IS RESOURCE

A rich portrait of how women have robustly participated in the work of God.

“We at Fuller’s De Pree Center are excited to present to you, She Is…, a study guide designed to help people engage questions of vocation through the stories of various biblical women. This collection of diverse perspectives shares the unique lens that each author sees these biblical women in.”

A SEAT AT THE TABLE

“Too often, women are enculturated to set the table rather than sit at the table in their work. It’s time for that to change—time for women to take a seat at the table God is calling them to.

You’ll learn more about: 1) a critical look at the landscape of women in work; 2) a biblical reframing of women who “sit at the table”; 3) a series of experiments to take out into the world; 4) questions to guide your reflection along the way.”

MORE ON WOMEN AS “VICITMS” OF BURNOUT

De Pree Center

“Are you feeling overwhelmed in your work? Considering a transition? Looking for tools to discern what’s next?The 2021 Women in the Workplace study revealed that working women are even more burned out than they were last year—and increasingly more so than men. Plus, right now, women lead men in quitting their jobs—as part of an overall shakeup in the workforce referred to as “The Great Resignation.”Over the past two years, we’ve been leading groups for women who are discerning questions of vocation. Now, we invite you to join four of our Road Ahead Guides as we unpack what we’re noticing and discuss what we’re hopeful for in this extraordinary season of transition and transformation. Click the link below to register. Even if you can’t join live, those who register will receive the recording afterwards!”

These kinds of programs and narratives are both pushing the victim status or women in the workplace and in Christian employment as well as intended to drive the increased “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion ” culture. Using the victim status of women in the workplace and applying it to the church is filled with tangled webs and minefields of inapplicable codes and metrics. Biblical fidelity precludes any across the board assumptions of diagnosis or cure for the problems. Add in the vengeful secular blood thirst for bringing down Christian institutions and the churches standard bearing call to be of salt and light against the cultural decline- the MeToo movement wed with intersectionality is the perfect weapon to engineer the institutional churches downfall. There are two prime examples of this battle currently underway in major Christian institutions of the SBC and Liberty University.

HOW THE FEMINIST #METOO MOVEMENT IS BEING ADVANCED FROM INSIDE THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION TO SERVE THE INTERSECTIONAL FEMINIST.

Two significant Institutions in biblically conservative Christianity, The Southern Baptist Convention and Liberty University, are currently under full on assault over sex abuse and scandalous reported “coverups” of it. The victims and justice for victims has come to play a very minor role in the effort compared to the agenda driven elements of “Diversity Equity & Inclusion” of radical feminist/racial / LGBTQ/ minority activist.

The tools of the trade are the victim coalition of intersectionality and its well honed critical theories providing the rhetoric. The OUTCOMES will be large legal settlements but also will focus on MORE Diversity Equity and Inclusive Cultures being forced upon the Complementarian institutions in the biblically conservative Christian sphere. No quarter will be given to the alleged “toxic masculinity ” and “patriarchal systems” of Bible based organizations espousing traditional faith and family roles and leadership.

Below is a Summary of the how unknown forces within the SBC have hardwired the MeToo /Sex Abuse scandal response /Task Force / legal teams /and DE&I Compliance partners to be taken down the denominations like a whipped puppy before the national media and the secular world with the help of feminist theologian “prophetesses” /victims advocates posing as justice warriors.

HOW WILL THE FAITH AND WORKS FEMINIST EFFORTS FACTOR INTO THIS?

On the other side of the take down -Christianity will need not only compliance officers and DE&I training after public contrition. It will need a just path forward to advance the intersectional movement players into leadership roles to ensure the future of this post #metoo world. Faith and Works will provide the directives for the “Road Ahead “.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY OF SEXUAL ABUSE FIRMS LGBTQ ALLIES

( This summary was provided to SBC leaders in several states working to counter the obvious selling out of the SBC by some inside it’s own leadership at the national level )

THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT SET OF FACTS ON WHO HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO THE TABLE AGAINST THE SBC TO SUPPOSEDLY ROOT OUT SEX ABUSE AND THE COVERING UP OF IT.

(Many of the same public theater players in the SBC takeover have now moved in on Liberty University sex abuse scandal .)

SBC SEX ABUSE INVESTIGATION SUMMARY

Information and links on the pro LGBTQ Equality law firm of the SBC Task Force, the investigating partner Guidepost Solutions and the SBC Executive Committee law firm for the SBC sex abuse scandal.

According to the SBC Task Force they have hired their own legal firm .“The task force explains this matter in its Sept. 29 letter: “The task force retained our own legal counsel, Linklaters attorneys Adam Lurie and Richard Smith. Both men are former senior Department of Justice officials with extensive back ground also in corporate law.”

This is the website for the firm the SBC Task Force hired.

It asserts that “Diversity and Inclusion are the Pulse of the Firm.”You can search various awards and goals in keeping with the LGBTQ focus of the firm at this link. https://www.linklaters.com/…/diversity-and-inclusion?

One of the recent accomplishments of the firm is to work with the radical Human Rights Campaign on developing legal strategy to eliminate discrimination against LGBTQ

“We have joined the Human Rights Campaign in a new initiative to pursue strategic litigation in U.S. state and federal courts to address discriminatory actions against the LGBTQ+ community.”

Video – one of many for “SBC task” force attorneys “We as a firm are totally committed to LGBT Equality. “https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpyeJmfm7UY The website is filled with such LGBTQ news, goals and accomplishments.

The Task Force Investigation partner is Guidepost Solutions.

Its vision statement says the company is a “Mosaic of Diversity and Innovation “ and is “totally committed to equality”.https://guidepostsolutions.com/careers/diversity-inclusion/

Also the SBC Executive Committee law firm boast they have received HRC Corporate Equality Index awards 5 years running. HRC gives these awards based on pro LGBTQ metrics and grading and based on companies funding the HRC full LGBTQ Equality agenda.https://www.lockelord.com/…/hrc-2021-corporate-equality…

“January 28, 2021 – Locke Lord has achieved a 100 percent rating in the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s 2021 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for the fifth consecutive year. A perfect score in this annual report evaluating policies and practices related to LGBTQ employees, culture and corporate social responsibility earns the Firm the distinction of being an employer of choice for LGBTQ employees.”

HRC has a horrific reputation on abuse and cover ups of its own. Human Rights Campaign co founder Terry Bean was charged with the rape of a 15 year old boy.https://www.advocate.com/…/watch-obama-friend-hrc…

Recently the head of HRC was fired over involvement in the Cuomo sex abuse cover up. https://www.yahoo.com/…/human-rights-campaign-leader…

These firms and Guidepost commitment to LGBTQ diversity and inclusion and both law firms support of HRC mean the abuse investigation of the SBC is EXTREMELY tainted and agenda driven and Baptist leaders look to be either utterly ignorant or totally compromised with these forces and thereby delivering the SBC up like the fatted calf to the very forces who would love nothing more than to destroy it.

The Firm which appeared in the October 5th SBC Executive Committee meeting was Blank Rome which has an even MORE aggressive pro HCR/LGBTQ stance with HRC awards 6 years running https://www.blankrome.com/…/blank-rome-earns-perfect…

Blank Rome is VERY proud of its HRC standing. Blank Lord Hosted a webinar with the now terminated HRC President fired for ties to Cuomo abuse coverup .https://www.blankrome.com/…/triumphs-challenges-road…https://www.blankrome.com/alumni-spotlight

The firm sponsored the Unite For Equality Event for HRChttps://www.blankrome.com/events/unite-equalityBlank Rome even has a firm member listed as speaker in the upcoming 2022 Lavender Law Conference in LAhttps://lgbtqbar.org/annual/program/2019-speaker-bios/It just keeps getting worse with every revelation of the partners involved.

CONCLUSION

The end game of activist using sexual abuse and wrongdoing by church leadership and Christian leaders is not justice for victims. The endgame IS rebellion against Gods divine order for family, motherhood, gender roles and FAITH. Whether players like Keller and Katherine Leary Alsdorf, and their literal swarm of Faith and Work advocates realize it- this rebellion goes to very heart of God’s design for the church and the family and is little more than a repackaged socialist economics system of thought using the worn tools of the trade from the Frankfurt School and long time Atheistic haters of all things related to FAITH in GOD. It will not destroy true faith or the real Gospel but it does have the potential already being realized to destroy the institutional church in the West which is are well on it’s way to a self inflicted demise.

DAVID PLATT NOW JOINS THE REVOICE CREW PUSHING LGBTQ+ CHRISTIANITY /RACE / & RETHINKING HELL.

WITH DAVID PLATT JOINING THE INTERFIATH / MULTIFAITH DIALOG AND GLOBALIST IN RECENT MONTHS IT SHOULD BE NO SURPRISE FOR HIM TO TURN UP WITH PRESTON SPRINKLE AND THE REVOICE ADVOCATES OF LGBTQ CHRISTIANITY/RACIAL JUSTICE / DENYING ETERNAL JUDGEMENT.

Rev Thomas Littleton

11/16/2021

David Platt has been dancing with the stars on the heretical fringe for years now. He is already in an intense battle over his false justice gospel agenda at his present church McLane Bible. Recently his Radical Intensive /Stratus brand promoted the use of globalist “global goals” data to drive the social justice agenda in missions giving in order to address the so called “great imbalance”. Platts global data partners include World Economic Forum, World Bank, United Nations, CIA mapping and even OPEC.

Of course then he surfaced last month meeting with the leader of Muslim World League which according to one federal prosecutor is “perhaps the most significant Muslim Brotherhood (terrorist ) organization in the world.”

So where is David Platt the social justice warrior misleading his following now? Platt is set to appear in the upcoming 2022 conference for Revoice leader Preston Sprinkle “Theology in the Raw” -EXILES IN BABYLON in March.

https://www.prestonsprinkle.com/conference

Yes it is as bad as it sounds. Sprinkle is not only a long time leader in the “Revoice LGBTQ + Thriving in historically (conservative) churches” but he also heads The Center for Faith, Sexuality & Gender which schools churches on LGBQ inclusion. His upcoming conference which includes Platt will also feature another long time Revoice leader and author of “Single Gay Christian” Gregory Coles. Coles was the “worship leader” in the original Revoice conference which was first incubated in 2017 at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary where Albert Mohler employed its founder Nate Collins as a New Testament teacher. By 2020 the Revoice movements footholds in the PCA and at it’s flagship seminary Covenant (CTS) had SPLIT THE PCA denomination which is still in steep decline as its leadership cannot find the will to condemn the movements assertions of LGBTQ and “Queer Christianity”.

“To be a Christian is to be an exile. The Bible has a name for the country we’ve been exiled to: Babylon.As exiles living in Babylon, we need to think biblically, Christianly, indeed exilically—not partisanly—through cultural and political issues.”

“At the Theology in the Raw conference, we will be challenged to think like exiles about race, sexuality, gender, critical race theory, hell, transgender identities, climate change, creation care, American politics, and what it means to love your democratic or republican neighbor as yourself. Different viewswill be presented. No question is off limits. No political party will be praised. Everyone will be challenged to think. And Jesus will be upheld as supreme.”

ACCORDING TO SPRINKLE

He is “Super stoked about our line up of speakers and artists and Theology in the Raw’s “Exiles in Babylon” conference! March 30-April 2 (in Boise, ID or stream online). We’re going to discuss race, sex, gender, politics, hell, the gospel, and what it means to follow a peasant prophet-King crucified by the state for treason. Registration is filling up fast and space is limited! Go to my website to register. Worship will be truly multiethnic; attendees can pushback and ask questions. Come, bring your presuppositions and lay them at the door, and be challenged to think deeply and love widely.”

SPRINKLE ON REVOICE/IS IT SIN TO BE GAY? AND THE THEOLOGY IN THE RAW CONFERENCE

“Is it a sin to be gay? Would you attend a church that has a gay pastor? What does it mean to be gay? There is still a lot of misunderstanding surrounding the term gay and what it means to be a gay Christian. I discuss these issues at length, which leads into Misty Irons’ incredible talk she gave at this year’s Revoice Conference. “

Theology in the Raw Conference – Exiles in Babylon
“At the Theology in the Raw conference, we will be challenged to think like exiles about race, sexuality, gender, critical race theory, hell, transgender identities, climate change, creation care, American politics, and what it means to love your democratic or republican neighbor as yourself. Different views will be presented. No question is off limits. No political party will be praised. Everyone will be challenged to think. And Jesus will be upheld as supreme”

RACIAL JUSTICE WILL ALSO BE ON THE AGENDA WITH TGC JUSTICE WARRIOR AND PLATTS BLM MARCHING PARTNER THABITI ANYABWILE

May be an image of 1 person and text that says 'THEOLOGY IN THE RAW CONFERENCE 2022 THABITI ANYABWILE RACE & RACISM IN AMERICA EXILES IN BABYLON'

Platt and Thabiti work at The Gospel Coalition together and were both part of the controversial ERLC/TGC sponsored event MLK/50 which in 2018 sparked the concerns leading to the current exposure and opposition to CRT/ Resolutions 9 , and BML invasion of churches.

MORE RACE AND LGBTQ ACTIVIST IN THE OFFERING WITH SPRINKLE

Sprinkle recently interviewed one of the primary inhouse racial activist on staff at SBTS Jarvis Williams in the Theology in the Raw interview series.

“I so enjoyed talking to my friend @drjjwilliams about his latest book “Redemptive Kingdom Diversity” on my recent @rawtheology podcast episode!”

“Jarvis is a friend and an incredible scholar. He has written and spoken extensively on issues related to race, ethnic reconciliation, and the gospel–which is the focus of our conversation. “

“Jarvis is Associate Professor of New Testament Interpretation at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he’s taught since 2013. He has published numerous books, including Christ Redeemed ‘Us’ from the Curse of the Law: A Jewish Martyrological Reading of Galatians 3:13 in the Library of New Testament Studies Monograph Series (T&T Clark, 2019), his commentary on Galatians in the New Covenant Commentary Series (Cascade, 2020), a commentary on Romans (IVP Academic, Submitted and Forthcoming 2021 or 2022), and his most recent book Redemptive Kingdom Diversity: A Biblical Theology of the People of God (Baker Academic, September 2021), which is the focus of our attention in this podcast.”

CONCLUSION

David Platt was one of the most popular Southern Baptist and evangelical pastors and speakers in America being the product of heavy promotion by the SBC & evangelical machine. His Radical brand has sold books & literally tons of study guides and Radical branding merch for two decades.

Now Platt is facing increasing exposure for his waltzing on the radical heretical fringe and false social justice gospel. He marched in DC during the Black Lives Matter protest and has been at the forefront of the effort to drive the church toward racist bigotry in the name of reconciliation and equity. Platt has joined the Globalist with pushing the church toward “Agenda 2030 Goals” of Sustainable Development with Lausanne Movement. Recently he launched deeper into error with “Multi faith” movement with Muslim Brotherhood organization and NOW with REVOICE LGBTQ + THRIVING. In the matter of Matthew 12 Jesus command to either make the tree good or make it evil- It appears David Platt has chosen the latter.

Matthew 12

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 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.”

MAVIN OLASKY, FORMER COMMUNIST-OUT AT WORLD MAGAZINE AFTER YEARS OF FLIRTING WITH CULTURAL MARXIST ADVOCATES.

FIRST PROGRESSIVE RUSSELL MOORE – NOW WORLD MAGAZINES “FORMER COMMUNIST” OLASKY ARE OUT OF THEIR BULLY PULPITS. NON STOP TRUMP VOTER BASHING AND THEIR STEADY PROGRESSIVE PARTNERSHIPS HAVE THEM SUFFERING A CREDIBILITY CRISIS.

By Rev Thomas Littleton

11/15/2021

Virtually no one in the evangelical press has been willing to call out Marvin Olasky for WALTZING AMONG THE LEFTIST ELITE except WORLDVIEW WEEKEND, Brannon Howse and this author at Thirty Pieces of Silver. But now Olasky has begun to reap his sowing his wild oats in the mushy middle with other evangelical leaders.

May be an image of text that says 'PATRICK PATRICK HENR PATRICK HENRY PATRICK PATRICK HENRY OLLEGE HENRY HENRY He COLLEGE OLLEGE COLLEG COL PATRICK PATRICK PATRICK PATRICK HENRY HENRY HENRY COLLEGE COLLEGE HENRY PATRICH PATRICK PATE HENRY HENRY COLLEGE HE OLLEĞE PATR PATR'
From WVW story “Marvin Olasky of World Magazine gives an affirmative interview at Patrick Henry College to Justin Giboney who is co-founder of the cultural Marxist And-Campaign and a Democratic strategist that was a delegate for President Obama.”

According to NY Times Marvin Olasky, long time editor of World Magazine, is out of a job. The Times blames the ouster on his anti- Trump rhetoric which the Times deemed “Biblical ” opposition. But it is far more likely his recent years of flirting with Obama Foundation and Democratic Party operatives which proved to be his downfall.

Olasky’s “compassionate conservatism” helped brand the Bush W era politics and policies including the dreaded and RUINOUS Faith Based Neighborhood Partnerships giving churches, denominations and Christian ministries access to federal grants. The church has NEVER recovered especially after the Obama administration revamped the FBNP to include radical LGBTQ funders and organizations along with Muslims activist. FPNB also allowed the far left evangelical wing nuts to sit down with conservatives like Southern Baptist Executive Committee CEO Frank Page and find “Common Ground for the Common Good…to get the public funding. This sweet spot of compromise set up conservative opposition for a fall -in fact resulting in an all out effort to collapse the Christian Conservatives into the left.

MARVIN’S TIDY FRIENDSHIP WITH CULTURAL MARXIST TRAINED OPERATIVES

If anyone should recognize a Cultural Marxist at work it would be a “former Communist” right? Not so for Marvin Olasky who boast in his testimony of conversion that he was a “card carrying” Communist by age 24 but came to faith after reading the New Testament in Russian. Olasky’s testimony gave him street cred among evangelicals and likely helped make him one of the key thought leaders among conservative evangelicals and Christian media via his positions at World Magazine and Patrick Henry College (Among many other places).

Olasky is reported to have disliked the rollout of the Bush W era FBNP he had helped inspire BUT Olasky has been uncomfortably familiar in his flirtatious relationships with the Obama era FBNP head evangelical recruiter Michael Wear who has become the Obama Foundations “Ambassador to America’s Believers”. Wear also played a key leadership role in the in the critical theory driven & Campaign’s “Biblical Values & Social Justice” movement which proved to be little more than THE key anti-Trump effort among evangelicals in the lead up to the 2020 election. The & Campaign is also lead by Democratic Party operative /Hillary and Obama delegate Justin Giboney. Both Giboney and Wear have been platformed and featured by Marvin Olasky in his roles at both World Magazine and Patrick Henry College.

YOU CAN READ MORE ON OLASKY’S FLIRTATIONS HERE

FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES ARTICLE ON OLASKY’S DEPARTURE

“As the longtime editor of World, a Christian news organization that has a website, a biweekly magazine and a set of podcasts, Olasky has delivered a mix of hard news and watchdog articles about the evangelical realm under a journalistic philosophy he calls “biblical objectivity.”

It involves taking strong stands where the Bible is clear, which has led World to oppose abortion rights and support refugees, he says, and to follow reportable facts where the Bible doesn’t provide clear guidance.

The concept served Olasky well from 1994, when he became the editor of World, until Nov. 1, when he submitted his resignation.

He had, he said, received an effective “vote of no confidence” from World’s board, which had recently started a section of the website, World Opinions, without fully consulting him.”

…” And its founder, Joel Belz, told me he believed Olasky’s departure was simply an episode of “painful growing pains.”

SUPPOSEDLY MARVIN OLASKY IS OUT BECAUSE OF SOUTHERN BAPTIST ALBERT MOHLER. REALLY?

Note the NY Times eludes to the establishment of the World Opinions section which World just established and which Albert Mohler has been invited to help lead. This move was done, according to NY Times , “without consulting Olasky”. YET Olasky and Mohler both share in the spread of the social justice diseased false gospel work of Tim Keller’s “The Gospel Coalition”. Again Marvin Olasky works for /with the Action Institute which has brought the socialist economics based Social Justice curriculum to once conservative seminaries including Albert Mohler’s SBTS in the “Commonweal Project”. Olasky and Mohler still remain joined at the hip in the neo-Calvinist movement which birthed TGC and other progressive false gospel movements impacting conservative denominations like the SBC and the PCA. This would not have been possible without the presence of and expertise in doublespeak by editors like Olasky and TGC Joe Carter who also works with Olasky over at Patrick Henry College. The evangelical room has been filled with such activist agents of change for decades now.

FAKE NEWS OUTRAGE OVER OLASKY TERMINATION

A quick look at who is supporting Olasky after his ousting at World is helpful. New York Times is calling his opposition to Christian’s voting for Trump “Biblical”. Does anyone think NY Times cares about or is a good judge of what is “Biblical”? NYT is virtually passing out tissues for those still clueless enough to morn Olasky’s departure. Also there is a bit of fake Twitter outrage by a long time Acton Institute employee and semi closeted leftward activist Anthony Bradley . Bradley gives the Olasky departure press an even more glaring feel of political theater attempting to rescue Olasky’s image and failed conservative credibility.


Anthony B. Bradley, PhD@drantbradley
“Marvin Olasky is pushed out of WORLD magazine by Mohlerish SBCers. The PCA partnering with SBC leaders has done nothing but made PCA platforms & conversations worse. Again, fundamentalism is toxic. This so sad & I’m overwhelmingly angry.”

THIS AUTHORS RESPONSE SHOULD PROVE HELPFUL IN SEEING BRADLEY’S ERROR IN JUDGEMENT EVEN IF HE IS TRULY OUTRAGED FOR HIS ACTON COHORT.

Thomas Littleton@revcoltom· Replying to dr ant bradley Anthony The PCA “partnering ” with the SBC is because of Tim Keller’s progressive @TGC of which Mohler is a part. Marvin’s troubles go much deeper than a supposed “toxic SBC fundamentalism” or “opposition to Trump”. Olasky’s credibility wounds are self inflicted. A former Marxist -should have known better.

To blame Olasky’s problems on his friend and fellow mushy middle conservative talking head Albert Mohler is as absurd as it can get. To blame the PCA denominations terminal problems on the co-mingling of these two movements under the influence of “toxic fundamentalism” (supposedly controlled by Olasky TGC pal Mohlers “Mohlerish SBC’s) is so stupid we can only hope Acton’s Bradley is faking his views as well as his outrage. It is painful and intellectually insulting for anyone to have to read his assertions.

Olasky has problems because he has caused problems for World Magazine … which is likely having problems with its readership after years of Olasky’s flirtations with the left and its evangelical operatives.

NNDB FULL OLASKY BIOGRAPHY. HIS TESTIMONY OF CONVERSION FROM COMMUNISM GAVE HIM A LONG TIME VOICE AMONG CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS

AKA Marvin N. Olasky

Born: 12-Jun1950
Birthplace: Boston, MA

Gender: Male
Religion: Presbyterian
Race or Ethnicity: White
Sexual orientation: Straight
Occupation: PunditHistorianJournalist

Nationality: United States
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.”

CONCLUSION

Russell Moore is out of the SBC and it’s Ethics arm the ERLC. The World Magazine board has purged itself of Marvin Olasky. We can only hope and pray it is a trend which is just getting started. Even if World and SBC leaders are attempting to save face and or retain their audiences -their motives are not quiet as important as the fact that both of the compromised voices are gone except for their sour grapes commentaries from far more progressive publications like Christianity Today.

We must pray it is the start of a trend and more of the well placed compromisers aiding in the deconstruction of conservative evangelicalism and who are being exposed will be sharpening up their resumes. Keep Praying.

RUSSELL MOORE JOINS DAVID AXELROD ON NEW CNN SHOW TO ACCUSE “RADICALIZED ” CHRISTIANS.

AFTER BEING BOOTED FROM THE ERLC, RADICALIZED LIBERAL ACCUSER RUSSELL MOORE JUST KEEPS EXPOSING HIMSELF.

Rev Thomas Littleton

10/30/2021

Thanks to Albert Mohler who mentored employed and promoted Russell Moore for nearly 3 decades, Southern Baptist now have a well credentialed professional theological accuser in the public square to point fingers at them.

THE LATEST ON MOORE AND THE COMPANY HE KEEPS

David Axelrod@davidaxelrod“10 yrs ago, I’d have parents concerned about their children losing their faith. Now I’m hearing adult children who are saying, ‘What do I do w/my mom & dad who’ve become radicalized on Facebook?’” @drmoore on radicalization among evangelicals #AxeFiles: https://link.chtbl.com/V-72qzJt

MOORE ON THOSE TRUMP VOTERS IN THE CHURCH

“Public theologian Russell Moore has long encouraged evangelical Christians to focus on practicing religion rather than engaging in culture wars, something he found increasingly difficult under former President Donald Trump. Moore left his leadership post at the Southern Baptist Convention earlier this year and now works for Christianity Today. He joined David to talk about how working for a conservative Democratic congressman on Capitol Hill reaffirmed his belief in the possibility of politics, why his dad didn’t want him joining the ministry, and why he felt compelled to call out issues he saw in the church, even as it led to his departure from the SBC.”

Russell Moore speaks on a panel moderated by columnists Sally Quinn and E.J. Dionne on June 20, 2017 in Washington, DC.

CNN COVERED THE INTERVIEW…WHICH WAS ON CNN.

“(CNN)Public theologian Russell Moore, a prominent evangelical leader who was an early critic of Donald Trump, says he doesn’t see support for the former GOP president waning and warns that it is “entirely possible” that Trump could seek the White House again and win.”I don’t think he’s had any change in terms of the support that he has. The question is, is there an alternative? And in looking around the Republican Party right now, it certainly is hard to see who could be an alternative for people’s- for people’s loyalty and votes. So I think it’s- I think it’s entirely possible that he could run in 2024 and win,” Moore said, speaking with David Axelrod on “The Axe Files” podcast.Moore said when he first spoke out in 2015 against then-presidential candidate Trump, most people in the evangelical social-conservative world, who would later be among Trump’s key supporters, agreed with him. But then, Moore said, he noticed a shift among evangelicals — “not because Donald Trump changed, but because he started winning.”

“He said he saw the decision as “choosing between my conscience under Christ and saying things that I didn’t believe. So it would have been- it would have been easy to say, well, this is who most of our people, this is who they’re with, and so I’m going to get on board. But to do that, I would have, I couldn’t have done it. I couldn’t have lived with myself,” he said.”

“Moore was heading the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, the public policy arm of the nation’s largest Protestant denomination. Moore left the role this year and now works for Christianity Today.”

WHO IS DAVID AXELROD?

“In 1984, David Axelrod’s campaign management team helped win Congressman Paul Simon a seat in the U.S. Senate. Axelrod has since led successful campaigns for numerous Democrats, and his client roster includes such names as Bill and Hillary Clinton. Axelrod has also gained national repute for helping African-American politicians get elected in landmark victories, most notably Barack Obama. Axelrod served as senior advisor to President Barack Obama, senior advisor to the Obama-Biden Presidential Transition, senior strategist to Barack Obama’s historic campaign for the presidency in 2008 and his 2012 re-election campaign. Today he serves as the Director, Institute of Politics at the University of Chicago.”

OBAMA CAME FROM THE CHICAGO POLITICAL MACHINE

Now Russell Moore shows himself at home in the realm of Chicago politics where he can bash Christians for their political views.

“The University of Chicago Institute of Politics occupies a rare place in America’s higher education landscape, offering our students pathways to civic engagement, opportunities for service, and a home for civil discourse and free expression.”

Our Mission

“The nonpartisan Institute of Politics is committed to fostering in our students a passion for public service, meaningful dialogue and active engagement in our democracy.”

RUSSELL MOORE IS ACTUALLY LISTED AMONG THE FELLOWS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO /AXELROD INSTITUTE OF POLITICS

Russell Moore

“Public Theologian and Director of the Public Theology Project at Christianity Today”

“Through “Evangelical Religion in American Politics and Culture” seminars, he will speak to the complicated relationship between American religion – particularly in its evangelical Protestant form – and the current political and cultural landscape.”

WHERE ELSE IS RUSSELL THESE DAYS ?

Russell Moore also has his own new program called “The Russell Moore Show”.

MOORE AND MOORE TOOK THE LOW ROAD AS VICTIMS

“NASHVILLE (RNS) — Two of the best-known ex-Southern Baptist leaders in the country got together at a Nashville church on Thursday (Sept. 9) for a night filled with Bible verses, banter and bittersweet memories.”

“The event, entitled “Lessons in Leaving (and Staying),” featured Bible teacher Beth Moore and ethicist Russell Moore — and was the first live event for a new Public Theology Project from Christianity Today magazine, where Russell Moore landed after leaving the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission.”

CONCLUSION

It is really all about politics isn’t it … and about the nasty habit of conservative Christians voting pro life pro family and Republican? In the end of the discussion it is really all about the political establishment of which Moore is a part, and their deep hatred of President Donald Trump and those Christians who support him.

Russell Moore is an avid “never Trumper” and a Mississippi Democrat. Now he is a full fledged member of the Chicago thug Democrat machine. Congratulations.

Moore has a need to be heard and Baptist have funded the need for years. Mike Huckabee famously ask “How long will Baptist pay Russell Moore to insult them?” At least now he is on Christianity Today’s payroll and whoever else will hire him to do what he does.

MFNN AND MUSLIM WORLD LEAGUE MEET AND BREAK BREAD

Image

October 26th 2021

Image
MWL welcomed a number of American evangelical leaders in Washington, DC to review the contents of the Charter of Makkah and its purpose to establish community and global harmony.

UPDATE – SINCE THIS ARTICLE WAS WRITTEN THE FOLLOWING INFORMATION HAS COME TO LIGHT .

A former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy who has testified before Congress and has investigated/ prosecuted terrorist in 2012 said the following about the Muslim World League :

Our Government and the Muslim Brotherhood
My Speech in Washington

by Andrew McCarthy
August 9, 2012

…the Muslim World League in Saudi Arabia, (is) perhaps the most significant Muslim Brotherhood organization in the world.”

As recently as 2018 many others have testified before Congress that the Muslim Brotherhood is “GLOBAL THREAT” DUE TO IT’S MASSIVE SUPPORT OF TERRORISM .

So David Platt and Bob Roberts , along with these other evangelicals meeting with the “World Muslim League”, are collaborating with the “most significant Muslim Brotherhood organization in the world “.

HOW FAR WILL ROBERTS,FRIES AND PLATT TAKE THESE INTERFAITH EFFORTS?

The Charter of Makkah (Mecca, officially Makkah al-Mukarramah )
“On May 28, 2019, the “Charter of Makkah” was endorsed unanimously
by an unprecedented group of the world’s leading Muslim scholars, who
gathered in the Holy City for the promotion of moderate Islam.
“The Charter of Makkah” offers Muslims around the world guidance on
the principles that speak to the true meaning of Islam.
The Charter of Makkah is orientated around the following principles:
1- All people, regardless of their different ethnicities, races and
nationalities, are equal under God.
2- We reject religious and ethnic claims of “preference.”
3- Differences among people in their beliefs, cultures and natures
are part of God’s will and wisdom.
4- Religious and cultural diversity never justifies conflict. Humanity
needs positive, civilized partnerships and effective interaction.
Diversity must be a bridge to dialogue, understanding and
cooperation for the benefit of all humanity.”

Our Beliefs

  • “MFNN believes that equipping faith leaders to engage with leaders of other faiths can help build resilient communities.
  • MFNN believes that when Pastors, Imams, Rabbis, and other religious leaders come together to build relationships and learn from each other, they become models for their own faith communities. By way of example, they remove fear and increase understanding within their own faith communities.
  • MFNN believes that multi-faith relationships allow everyone to hold onto their own beliefs while still building deep bonds with other faiths and serving their city together. Faith leaders can be a powerful, moral voice in society. Working cooperatively, they can model the very kind of society and world that all of us are trying to build – one where community, cooperation, and the common good are respected.”

WHATS MISSING ?

THE GOSPEL FOR ONE

There is a long history of the failure of God’s people to remain faithfully exclusive to Jesus and salvation in no other name and “on mission” to preach that exclusive truth to all people. We have NEVER been called to “Build Community” with other religions and false gods. Is someone in the leadership so ignorant of or blind to the problems this created for old testament saints?

Jesus has not made the faith less exclusive but even MORE.

Acts 4: Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them, “Rulers of the people and elders of Israel: If we this day are judged for a good deed done to a helpless man, by what means he has been made well, 10 let it be known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God raised from the dead, by Him this man stands here before you whole. 11 This is the ‘stone which was rejected by you builders, which has become the chief cornerstone.’ 12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

YET BAPTIST LIKE ROBERTS AND FRIES MUST THINK THEY KNOW BETTER THAN THE APOSTLES AND THE WORD OF THE LORD.

Our Methodology

“MFNN develops grassroots movements built on mutual trust and respect among individual faith leaders, their families, their congregations, and their broader communities. The Multi-Faith Neighbors Network initiative begins at the local level, in carefully targeted cities and towns across the United States and the World, based on polling data and the willingness of faith leaders and congregations to participate in this initiative.”

“We work with faith leaders to mobilize their congregations to use their vocation to serve others. Whether it is in their city or around the world, people of faith should be peacemakers by doing humanitarian projects together.”

“When pastors, imams, rabbis, and other clerics and religious leaders come together to learn from each other, they become models for their own faith communities.”

EVENTS

  • 2022-03-06
  •  KELLER, TX

Global Faith Forum

“The Global Faith Forum is a gathering of unlikely allies that venture down an unlikely path with the goal of building flourishing communities. We are moving from a conversation about others faiths, to a conversation with other faiths. A conversation that allows us to hear from those of different faiths, different worldviews, and different ideas that shape the way we communicate.”

“Featuring speakers like Christine Caine, Shaykh Hamza Yusuf, Ambassador Sam Brownback, Nobel Peace Prize winner David Beasley, and others, it’s going to be a powerful time. There is no cost at all to attend the event, but registration is required and limited.”

“A Christian Theology of Multi-Faith Partnership

by Micah Fries, Steve Bezner and Bob Roberts Jr

“Multi-faith is a challenge for many evangelicals. Evangelical Christians are not historically known to involve themselves in multi-faith, primarily out of a fear of sacrificing their evangelical distinctives and the exclusive truth claims of the gospel and as a result, evangelicals have unfortunately often created a subculture that isolates them from substantive relationships with people of other faiths. This is disconcerting as we believe both in multi-faith and the exclusive truth claims of Jesus as demonstrated in the Bible. We firmly believe that, not only are these concepts not in tension with one another, but they are in harmony with each other.”

“Multi-faith partnerships also serve to provide clarity between the Christian faith and other faiths, as well as strengthening our own faith. When we represent other beliefs outside of our own, too often we fail to do so in a way that those who embrace those other beliefs would affirm. This is often an act of dishonesty. As Christians we must tell the truth. It is difficult to know the truth apart from interaction with those we are trying to understand. It is also difficult for those who disagree with us to know what we believe, unless we have a relationship with them as well. There is also a tremendous benefit to our own faith when we examine it, and have it examined, by those who do not hold to the same set of beliefs that we do.”

SPORTING THE GRAND DECEPTION

RELIGIOUS FREEDOM FOR ALL

“At the heart of the American ideal, since its foundation, has been the principle of religious freedom. This commitment owes its foundation and strength, in large part, to Baptist pastor Roger Williams who demonstrated, theologically, that religious freedom is a biblical expectation. We believe that faith is a personal decision, and that each person must make a decision for themselves, without coercion, that determines what they believe. [Romans 14:5, 1 Corinthians 10: 29] Because we believe that this decision must be made without coercion, and that each person is eternally responsible for their own decisions, faith must then be allowed to exist on a level playing field. We do not believe that any faith should be prioritized or privileged over another. To do so would be to lean into coercion, and it would also deny our fundamental faith in the gospel of Jesus Christ. This appeal is also rooted in the dignity of every person. Each person is created by God with inherent worth and value and that worth is demonstrated by each person’s own volition.”

THE GRAND JUSTIFICATION OF MODERN DAY ERROR

WORKING FOR THE COMMON GOOD

“This is an often overlooked, and yet vital component of our collective Christian responsibility, and has been throughout Christian history. Through the years Christians have been involved in starting hospitals, universities, facilities for the aged, and orphanages. These are all activities that serve the common good, and which care for those who are in need. The commitment to serve the common good is evidenced in both the Old and New Testaments. God called the exiles in Babylon to live in such a way in their ungodly community so as to cause the blessings of God to be present. [Jeremiah 29: 4-14] We are told that our responsibility as followers of God is to pursue good, and not evil. We are to seek justice. [Amos 5: 14-15] Our pursuit of good government is an example of the biblical and necessary responsibility to pursue the common good of society.”

PARTNERS AND LIKELY FUNDING

BUILDING RESILIENT COMMUNITIES

“We have partnered with organizations such as the Templeton Religion Trust, the Doha International Centre on Interfaith Dialogue, The Institute for Global Engagement, Forum for Promoting Peace in Muslim Societies, El-Hibri Foundation, and continue to partner with similar organizations to build relationships between clerics – that spreads to grassroots action – in order to bring down tensions and build flourishing communities.”

THE SINGLE BIGGEST FALSEHOOD

Most of these focus , especially those based on refugee resettlement are funded by large government grant programs and therefor prohibit ” “, any explicitly religious activity, giving away Bibles, Bible Studies , prayer, or similar activities.

Yet Multi Faith Neighbors network claims the work is a Gospel opportunity.

LOOK HARD BUT YOU WILL NOT FIND A CLEAR GOSPEL MESSAGE IN THE WORDS BELOW.

THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE OUR FAITH

“Our faith is best shared in the context of relationships. Like most any other piece of good news, while it is certainly possible for us to share it outside of a relationship, it is not as certain that it will be meaningful outside of a relationship. As evangelicals who believe in the importance of sharing our faith, multi-faith partnership provides a level playing ground where we can hear from and learn about the faith of others, but it also provides a unique opportunity to share our own faith with those who are interested. We believe that sharing the gospel is a responsibility of the follower of Christ. [1 Corinthians 9: 16] We believe that the gospel is a message for all people. [Romans 1: 16] Our declaration of the gospel is rooted in our desire to share with others the encouragement and hope that we have received from the gospel. [1 Peter 3: 15] Further, the gospel is rooted in God’s love for the world and is intended to be expressed as a depiction of our love for the same world. [John 3: 16] Multi-faith partnerships, then, provide an opportunity to build real, genuine friendships with people of other faiths, where they have the opportunity to share with us about why their faith is meaningful and significant in their lives, and we, in turn, can share with them about how the gospel has been transformative in our lives. This opportunity also exists to share the gospel in a way that the gospel is not artificially advantaged. Christians in America, in particular, seem afraid of placing the gospel on the same level with other beliefs, which seems to betray a lack of confidence in the gospel. We believe that the gospel is beautiful and should be able to be seen as such when placed on a level playing field beside other faith traditions. [Romans 1: 16]”

CONCLUSION

At no place in the New Testament do we see Jesus or the Apostles engaging in community building with the plentiful rival religions around them. NONE- EVER. The modern day narratives of evangelical leaders like Roberts and Fries serve to build one of the globalist grand deceptions of a false GLOBAL SPIRITUALITY ” and have nothing to do with the true Gospel or the exclusive and eternal HOPE it offers only in JESUS.

PAUL WAS NOT COMMUNITY BUILDING ON MARS HILL AMONG THE IDOLS

ACTS 17:

Addressing the Areopagus

22 “Then Paul stood in the midst of the [a]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 [b]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.”

NEO-CALVINIST T4G CLOSURE MAY SIGNAL COLLAPSE OF SOCIAL JUSTICE STRANGLEHOLD ON BELIEVERS

LAST WEEKS ANNOUNCMENT TO END THE MOVEMENT AT THE “TOGETHER FOR THE GOSPEL” EVENT INDICATES THE OPPRESSIVE REGIME MAY BE COMING TO AN END.

Rev Thomas Littleton

10/23/21

At the recent T4G Conference Mark Dever and Ligon Duncan announced that the events will end in 2022. Christianity Today reported on the Neo Calvinist news story.

T4G Conference Will End in 2022

“With another cofounder leaving, Together for the Gospel prepares for its final event.”

REALITY CHECK FOR NEO CALVINIST !

No amount of explaining or excuses can deflect the hard reality that all is not well in the Neo Calvinist world. The false social justice gospel heralded by the overlapping leadership of T4G and The Gospel Coalition have taken a hard hit and suffered major divisions and defections since the failed 2018 TGC/ERLC co-sponsored event MLK/ 50 . That event in Memphis was said to mark 50 years since the death of Martin Luther King Jr. but in fact was a full reveal of the long cloaked and often denied false gospel of the Neo Calvinist behind the Young Restless and Reformed movement.

Leaders like Mark Dever of 9MARKS , Albert Mohler of SBTS and Ligon Duncan of RTS have long enjoyed unquestioned respect and recognition as conservative theologians. But their conservative credentials failed to provide sustainable cover for their radical departures from the Gospel and even historic Reformed Theology. Trust faded as they descended into the false “Faith And Works ” social justice economics, Diversity Equity & Inclusion cultures and “Equity” -re distribution mission of their movement.

FROM THE CT ARTICLE

“The popular reformed evangelical pastors conference Together for the Gospel (T4G) will hold its final gathering in April 2022, following the departure of one of its founders, Albert Mohler.”

“Dever, Duncan, Mohler, and C. J. Mahaney developed the idea for T4G out of their friendship in ministry. They held the first T4G conference in 2006, drawing 3,000 attendees.”

“We were all surprised how many people came,” said Dever, who leads Capitol Hill Baptist Church in Washington, DC.”

MAHANEY AND MOHLER ARE ALREADY OUT

C J Mahaney’s participation ended ,sort of belatedly, after a rather disgusting sex abuse and coverup scandal .

Mohler is now leaving according to CT. “

“The end date for T4G comes as Mohler, the president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, moves on.”

“In a video discussion on the T4G site, Dever said Mohler recently told them, “Brothers, I love you guys very much, but I’ve just got to do other things now.” Dever and Duncan cited Mohler’s involvement with a new opinion section at World magazine and his role in the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC), which is facing deepening divides and institutional shakeups.”

SOUTHERN BAPTIST DIVIDES ? YES AND MOHLER DISCIPLES ARE AT THE EPICENTER

Yes the SBC has problems and much of it is due to Albert Mohler’s long list of Social Justice warriors like Russell Moore who spent 24 years at SBTS as a student, professor, dean and provost. Moore also spent a disaster filled 8 years at the ERLC misrepresenting Southern Baptist and is now being sued by a former member of the SBC Executive Committee for defamation after Moore’s “leaked emails” somehow found their way to his good friends at secular news outlets like the Washington Post.This was all just in time to impact the SBC annual meeting and the Presidential race for head of the SBC in 2021 .This was a race in which Mohler himself was running and lost by a shamefully distant and telling 3rd place despite his protege’s efforts to vilify Mohler’s key opposition.

Mohler disciple Moore was part of the planners of MLK/50 at which he had accused Baptist in the South of “Worshipping Jim Crow as Jesus “. Moore and Mohler never backed off their narratives and by June in Dallas TX for the annual SBC meetings they were pushing Critical Race Theory (CRT) openly with multiple SBTS professors in tow. By 2019 this same Mohler CRT team of SBTS profs were heading the SBC Resolutions Committee which altered a resolution condemning CRT and Intersectionality into affirmation of them as “Analytical Tools” with the Gospel. CRT has since become THE core issue dividing both the SBC /PCA and even the general public related to education. Secular media has now been covering the broader controversies over CRT among it’s top stories almost daily for over a year.

Mohler and his underlings simply had the SBC early to the issue and ahead of the curve with its deceptions by several years.

Also by 2018 a 15 year Mohler disciple and SBTS New Testament teacher Nate Collins had launched the Revoice “LGBT+ Thriving in Historic Christian Tradition ” movement which further shook up both the SBC and PCA confidence in their “conservative ” theologians. Unless you can agree that “Queer Culture and Queer Theory” will bring with them “treasures into the New Jerusalem” and that the “Nuclear Family is an Idol” as 1990s Feminist Theologians asserted , then you cannot help but reject Revoice or the Seminaries like SBTS and the PCAs CTS who incubated and supported it. The radical LGBTQ “Christianity ” movement came home to roost with the Neo Calvinist who helped birth it.

The full hand of intersectionality against Southern Baptist has yet to be played . Intersectionality engages the kind of feminism behind the Me-Too movement which Mohler and friends look to have used to remove another Baptist seminaries leader /non Neo Calvinist Paige Patterson from office as President of SWBTS.

Mohler called it:

“The Wrath of God Poured Out—The Humiliation of the Southern Baptist Convention.”

That was May 2018 but efforts to platform the Wrath of God blew up once the SBTS Revoice ties were exposed and simply would not go away. The Patterson story faded and only with the February 2019 Houston Chronicle SBC Sex Abuse Scandal ( the one Mohler protege Moore is being sued for defamation over related to his accusations and leaked emails ) brought the Me-Too movement and the obviously expected “women’s empowerment ” movement back into full swing aimed at the SBC.

WHAT OF LIGON DUNCAN ?

Ligon Duncan’s PCA denomination is in a similar pickle due to MLK/ 50 and the resulting exposure of CRT and of the tolerance and outright promotion of the Revoice movement as well.

Duncan famously declared in the face of the groundswell of controversy that “Ligon Duncan ain’t groovin with no Cultural Marxism “. But of course he was even if he did not understand it given that CRT has it’s origins in Cultural Marist ideologies.

(From the CT article on Duncan)

“In 2018, Duncan repented of racial blindness and discussed his friendship with African American pastor Thabiti Anyabwile, who spoke at T4G events from 2008 to 2018. David Platt preached from Amos on race, asking why so many evangelical churches and ministries, including T4G, were so white.”

The country boy “ah shucks” manner of Duncan often makes him the object of jokes even in his own reformed circles and to further detail his failure to resist the invading forces which are likely dismantling their Neo Calvinist movement would almost seem cruel and unfair given his apparent limited ability to understand it .

MARK DEVER AND 9 MARKS HAVE BEEN DUMPSTER DIVING

DEVER AND MOHLER HISTORY

Mark Dever must see the handwriting on the wall that God’s judgement is on their movement and it is collapsing.

It was Dever who first said in 2017 Phoenix SBC annual meetings that Mohler was a liberal theologically in his undergraduate days and made such a radical shift to the right that his liberal base thought he was faking it and following the prevailing winds in the SBC. These revelations were in an interview with Tom Ascol of the Founders Movement . Founders is a more historic Reformed movement in the SBC of which Mohler has long been a part. Of course none of Mohler’s remaining faithful flock have connected the fact that Mohler was a student at SBTS while it was on its death slide into liberalism. It was Mohler who is credited with saving the SBC flagship seminary from liberals grasp yet he began immediately turning out and promoting liberals like Russell Moore into SBC LEADERSHIP.

That is all a lot to think about and digest so take your time.

Back to Dever

Mark Dever’s Capitol Hill Church and 2 other 9MARKS affiliates were the first state side group of churches to bring in the Church of England / TGC/ Tim Keller/ Living Out promoted “LGBTQ inclusion Church Audits ” to force conservative churches into welcome & inclusion, Sharing Children with and hiring LGBTQ staff.

Dever also has his own version of Russell Moore in the 9MARKS editor Jonathan Leeman, who Dever ( and not Leeman’s own TGC or 9MARKS bios) revealed is a graduate of Fabian Socialist place of origin London School of Economics. Leeman, like Moore loves to accuse Baptist and other Christians of things like “Christian Nationalism ” and “Waging a Culture War” for having biblical convictions which are reflected in their worldview, appreciation for America or voting for people like President Donald Trump.

Dever, Leeman and the 9MARKS crew LOVE to lecture on and promote their version church leadership THEY call “Plurality of Elders”. The assertion is that this is the Biblical model for the church. But for any who have experienced it’s (and TGC in general) tyrannical and oppressive applications against concerned believers and whistleblowers -the lack of Biblical basis becomes obvious and the reality of it’s extreme abuses equally as glaring.

In fact the Neo-Calvinist mode is built on being extremely abusive and deceptive. While it promotes itself as a conservative theological movement- it in fact betrays itself by it’s own teachings and political focus as a progressive political movement seeking social change …NOT Gospel transformation.

MORE FROM THE CT ARTICLE AND THE SHUT DOWN OF T4G

“Mohler said in a statement to CT, “Each of us faces questions of urgency and priority in life and ministry. At this stage in my life, I need to concentrate on helping the SBC and working on some important new priorities, including WORLD Opinions.”

“Ligon Duncan and Mark Dever are two of the closest and dearest friends I ever hope to have on earth,” he said, “and I pray God’s blessing on the T4G 2022 gathering, which will be a tremendous blessing to pastors.“

“Pastors David Platt and Alastair Begg were added to the April 2022 lineup, with Mohler taken off.”

TGC/ YR&R LEADER CONFIRMS TO OBVIOUS TO CT

“The Gospel Coalition’s Collin Hansen, in a tribute to T4G, called it “the visible manifestation of the ‘Young, Restless, Reformed,’” the name of his book about the movement, and celebrated it as an early gathering place for Reformed pastors.”

“T4G’s lineup has shifted over the years, especially as it addressed issues like sexual sin and racism.”

CELEBRATING YOUR DEMISE?

“Dever and Duncan said there’s something exciting, or even freeing, about it being their final conference.”

“They emphasized being able to use the T4G stage to introduce new, lesser-known speakers this year who aren’t on what Duncan called the “celebrity circuit.” Four of 14 plenary speakers in the 2022 lineup are African or African American.”

“I’m pretty pumped about this being the last one and maybe being the best one,” Dever said.”

CONCLUSION

What is likely happening is that T4G and TGC are not able to deliver the kind of influence they once peddled for their backers and TO the aging YR&R base. In short they are exposed and Christianity Today is pretty much admitting it.

The party is over. The attendance is likely down and made the conferences no longer profitable. Perhaps they are just tired of hearing their own voices in the echo chamber. It is highly likely that they just know that to continue will mean even greater exposure leaving little hope of living out their days as some icons of Neo Calvinism. Also it just might be that the whole smelly mess corrupting evangelicalism for the last decade and a half is being completely collapsed by Divine Judgement and also that Mohler was half right but just missed the reality that God’s target was not the resurgence old guard but was actually the Neo-Calvinist themselves.

We can thank God for that and pray for His mercies to restore the damage the Neo Calvinist have done for so many years.

Ezekiel 11

Vision of Israel’s Corrupt Leaders

11 “The Spirit then lifted me up and brought me to the eastern gate of the Lord’s house, which faces east, and at the gate’s entrance were 25 men. Among them I saw Jaazaniah son of Azzur, and Pelatiah son of Benaiah, leaders of the people. The Lord said to me, “Son of man, these are the men who plan evil and give wicked advice in this city. They are saying, ‘Isn’t the time near to build houses? The city is the pot, and we are the meat.’ Therefore, prophesy against them. Prophesy, son of man!”

SOUTHERN BAPTIST ABUSE TASK FORCE INVESTIGATIVE PARTNER “A MOSAIC OF DIVERSITY AND INNOVATION”.

AS THE SBC SEXUAL ABUSE LAW & INVESTIGATIVE PARTNERS TAKE SHAPE THE END OF THE CONVENTON LOOKS TO BE NEARER THAN EVER. WHO IS DIRECTING THE DECISIONS AND FINDING THESE SECULAR LGBTQ, DIVERSITY, INCLUSION SPECIALIST FOR DETERMINING THE FUTURE OF AMERICA’S LARGEST PROTESTANT GROUP ?

Rev Thomas Littleton

10/1/2021

As the weeks pass and the full range of partners at the table with the Southern Baptist Conventions independent task force and investigation partners come to the table the less the investigation looks like a search for justice for abuse victims and the MORE it appears to be the SBC is being positioned for it own demise.

One example as a basis for such concerns is the CHOICE of the SBC Task Force attorney firm who celebrates the following on its website:

  • “We contributed to the landmark case in Hong Kong concerning LGBT+ rights – QT v. Director of Immigration. The ruling paves the way for greater LGBT+ equality in Hong Kong.
  • We have joined the Human Rights Campaign in a new initiative to pursue strategic litigation in U.S. state and federal courts to address discriminatory actions against the LGBTQ+ community.
  • Our Firmwide Managing Partner, Gideon Moore, was part of the delegation that attended an exclusive meeting at the Vatican to present a preliminary research report on the human rights abuses that arise from the criminalization of same-sex acts in the Caribbean.
  • We were named as a Stonewall’s 2019 Top 100 Employers for LGBT people in the UK.”

Not everyone would be sad to see the Southern Baptist taken to the woodshed by the Diversity and Inclusion specialist law firms and the independent investigation partners “mosaic of diversity and innovation” culture . But the really odd part of recent revelations it that the SBC leaders look to have delivered themselves up to secular partners and allies who do not share their own core values in the least. You would expect the opposing law firms in the pending class action suit representing the victims to take this line of attack to plunder the massive treasuries of the Convention. BUT there is a BIG problem with these kinds of allies on your own team. Why say this? Because these words and ideas espoused by the partners tend to reflect political and social agenda’s not justice. They certainly do not reflect the Gospel or the original mission of any protestant denomination.

You may say the SBC deserves it and it’s demise is coming at it’s hand but whoever is choosing these firms and solution partners for SBC leaders -or whoever is encouraging them toward these partners looks to be ensuring a major failure of the entire process. Political ideologies cannot bring about true justice. They only twist it.

THE CURIOUS CASE OF THE CASE AS IT SHAPES UP.

HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN AND DIVERSITY PULSE ALLIED LAW FIRMS

You can read about he two law firms partnering with the Executive Committee and the Task Force here:

THE SBC ABUSE TASK FORCE INVESTIGATING PARTNER

A quick look at the partner chosen by the Task Force for the investigation causes further concerns about the players on the inside. Again who is directing the SBC leaders decisions toward these partners?

Baptist News Global reported on September 10th 2021 that the task force had hired the same firm the Executive Committee had sought to hire. Is there not a problem with objectivity for this partnership as the internal battles develop?

“SBC task forces hires the same investigative firm the Executive Committee wanted but on different terms”

The independent firm originally hired by the Southern Baptist Convention Executive Committee to investigate itself has been chosen for that task again — this time by the special task force created by SBC annual meeting messengers in a rebuke to Executive Committee leadership.”

“The letter of engagement with Guidepost Solutions, however, makes clear that the investigation into possible mishandling of sexual abuse claims will occur fully independent of influence by the Executive Committee and its leadership.”

The concerns over a problematic outcome to the investigation surfaced in the annual Convention and continue to be discussed in media reports like this one in Baptist News Global. BUT according to some the process appears to be ensuring greater transparency. What does not look reassuring is the compatibility of this partners vision and the Christian Convention and the over 47,000 churches it represents.

GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS

VISION AND MISSION

Vision Statement

“A mosaic of diversity and innovation.”

Mission Statement

“Guidepost Solutions fosters an inclusive environment of professionals who share common values of diversity and equality. We treat each other with respect. We listen to and learn from one another with compassion and empathy. We encourage diverse viewpoints as we provide innovative solutions for our clients’ complex challenges.”

“A dedicated Diversity + Inclusion Committee brings our team together by offering educational presentations, open platforms for listening and discussion, and learning opportunities. We incorporate these activities into our workday and beyond.”

THE GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS VISON AND MISSION LOGO

Many of our team members are actively involved in community organizations and programs supporting diverse communities. Some include:

(Sample of how the mosaic is represented )

HUMAN RIGHTS FIRST

Human Rights First works to create the political environment and policy solutions necessary to ensure consistent respect for human rights — whether protecting refugees, combating torture, or defending persecuted minorities.”

TYPICAL OF TODAYS CORPORATE WORLD BUT NOT REASSURING

Though these kinds of values and vision statements are typical in todays corporate climate the SBC looks to have either failed to recognize that such statements reflect something deeper than mere words or the SBC are being misled by someone inside their own inner circles.

THE SBC LOOK TO HAVE COME TO THE DANCE WITH SOME ONE ELSE GIRLFRIEND.

In light of the Executive Committee law firm’s HRC / PRO LGBTQ stance and the “Diversity and Inclusion Pulse” of the Task Force law firm- the decision to engage Guidepost with its “Mosaic of Diversity” looks to be troubling indeed. The SBC leadership look to be in over their heads if no one noticed the clash of cultures in the partners they have chosen.

CONCLUSION

Something feels OFF here in the entire process and raises concerns of a predetermined outcome that will have more to do with the demise of the Southern Baptist Convention via the political and cultural forces and ideologies long opposed to it and little to do with the actual justice for the actual victims of abuse.

Many are expressing concerns. These CULTURAL realities among the partners and allies chosen so far look to confirm the concerns.

One has to ask “where is the Gospel in all of this ?” or maybe that should have been asked by Baptist leaders long before it ever got to this stage in the process. Again “Who is directing these decisions and setting this trajectory on the inside at the SBC?”. That person or persons should NOT be trusted.

SOUTHERN BAPTIST HIRE PRO-LGBTQ LAW FIRM(S) FOR SEX ABUSE INVESTIGATION

MANY LAW FIRMS HAVE SUCCUMB TO THE HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN INCLUSION METRICS OVER THE YEARS. BUT WHY IS THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION HIRING A LAW FIRM WHO BOAST ABOUT IT’S HRC /LGBTQ APPEASEMENT?

Rev Thomas Littleton

9/28/2021

The Southern Baptist Convention is in a nasty internal brawl with how it will handle sex abuse and allegations of long term cover up of it. Even Baptist are confused about what is going on with all the players in the room. For example the seminary heads who historically are under the directorship of mentor Albert Mohler are making open demands of the leadership in the Executive Committee. The central issue at the moment is about calls for the Executive Committee to “waive attorney client privilege ” so as not to impede the investigation by a recently appointed “Task Force”.

According to “The Baptist Paper ” on September 21th -the SBC executive Committee and others involved in the “task force” investigation into the years long sexual abuse and coverups have approved the hiring of a major law firm to help with the investigation.

THE LAW FIRM NAMED WHO WAS HIRED WITH THE APPROVAL OF THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE.

“The survivors as well as friends attending with them said they are hopeful as they prepare to watch the business proceedings take place again today. Some also noted they understood the need for the Monday afternoon executive session. The executive session was approved 54 to 23 in order to discuss the situation with attorneys from the law firm of Locke Lord, a firm recently hired with the approval of the EC officers.”

BAPTIST GLOBAL MEWS PROVIDES THE FOLLOWING ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

“…However, one of the Executive Committee attorneys, Paul Coggins of Dallas, “rejected the offer of speaking with our attorneys in the meeting and also rejected their opinion that the task force could be the contracting party for the investigation,” the statement continues.”

“Coggins, an attorney with the law firm Locke Lord in Dallas, based his opinion on the judgment of longtime SBC attorney Jim Guenther of Nashville, according to the task force.”

SOME HISTORY ON THE SBC ABUSE SCANDAL :

According the to the Houston Chronicle who first reported the sexual abuse and coverup scandal in 2018 -there are hundreds (over 700 ) of abuse victims .Many of these were children at the time. Based on other media reports and statistical realty -some are same sex sexual abuse. Sex with minors is still classified as pedophilia .But you are not likely to see words LIKE THAT OR homosexual used in any of the SBC stories.

SO WHY IS THAT?

Another good question might be “why was this law firm chosen?” when it expends a significant amount of its webpage introduction to its “LGBTQ INCLUSIVE CULTURE and Human Rights Campaign awards for Corporate Equality Index” in 2021 and for “five consecutive years?

PERHAPS SOUTHERN BAPTIST LEADERS INVOLVED IN THIS CHOICE MAY DO WELL TO RESPOND .

THE SBC HAS FEATURED SEVERAL ABUSE SURVIVERS BUT SO FAR NONE HAVE BEEN FROM THE LIST OF SAME SEX OR HOMOSEXUAL ABUSE.

In spite of almost weekly reports of same sex abuse of children by pastors, including Baptist /SBC pastors and the original reports having indicated this reality- NONE of the SBC / ERLC/ Press featured survivors have been from same sex abuse. None of the abusers of survivors (who were children) at the time are being named as pedophiles.

AT ONE TIME A WEBSITE DEVOTED TO “STOP THE BAPTIST PREDATORS” LINKED TO THE ONGOING NEWS STORIES OF PEDOPHILE AND HOMOSEXUAL ABUSE CASES.

That site was folded into another abuse survivor site several years ago.

Are the SBC / the Executive Committee /The Task Force leaders blind to the reality of same sex sexual abuse in their midst or have they hired a law firm which boast its inclusion and HRC awards for some other reason?

SO WHAT IS REALLY GOING ON?

Will those victims/ survivors of same sex abuse also be included in the impending CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT ? Or will they continue to be ignored and further abused by a culture of “inclusion” that winks at inconvenient facts?

FROM THE 2018 HOUSTON CHRONICLE 3 PART SBC SEX ABUSE STORY

“Houston Chronicle: Abuse of Faith Series on the SBC”

Houston+Chronicle.jpg
Photo from the Houston Chronicle 2018 articles

Excerpt:

“It’s not just a recent problem: In all, since 1998, roughly 380 Southern Baptist church leaders and volunteers have faced allegations of sexual misconduct, the newspapers found. That includes those who were convicted, credibly accused and successfully sued, and those who confessed or resigned. More of them worked in Texas than in any other state.

“They left behind more than 700 victims, many of them shunned by their churches, left to themselves to rebuild their lives. Some were urged to forgive their abusers or to get abortions.”

Where are the rest of the victims/survivors and when will their presence be acknowledged ?

HRC AND THE SBC HISTORY:

HRC has a long history of attacking Southern Baptist for their biblical stance on sexuality and gender. HRC has been working since 2014 with Project One America ” to press their cause in the deep South states where the SBC churches are mainly located.

HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN EVEN HAS A GUIDE AND SCORING METRIC FOR BAPTIST

CONVERSATIONS PUSHING THIER INCLUSION NARRATIVE .

Example of HRC direct focus on SBC

https://www.hrc.org/resources/stances-of-faiths-on-lgbt-issues-southern-baptist-conventio n

“The Southern Baptist Convention, the largest Protestant denomination in the United States, with over 16 million members, has discriminated against gay and lesbian people for more than a quarter-century”

LGBTQ EQUALITY

ON SEXUAL ORIENTATION & GENDER IDENTITY

“In a 1996 “Resolution on a Christian Response to Homosexuality,” the SBC declared that “even a desire to engage in a homosexual relationship is always sinful, impure, degrading, shameful, unnatural, indecent and perverted.”

“In the 2000 Baptist Faith and Message statement, the SBC equates “homosexuality” with adultery and pornography, declaring, “In the spirit of Christ, Christians should oppose … all forms of sexual immorality, including adultery, homosexuality and pornography.”

“The SBC calls on its members to a “love the sinner but hate the sin” approach and affirms the possibility of reorientation from same-sex attraction and supports “ex-gay” ministries. As the SBC website states: “Christians can, and should, minister to homosexuals in a kind, yet firm manner. The church should never turn its back on homosexuals who are searching and seeking to heal the hurts within their lives. … While God hates the sinner in his sin, we are called to love the sinner and hate the sin. In doing so, Christ can work through our lives to touch those lost in a world of confusion and darkness.”

“Likewise, the SBC website also asserts: “We affirm God’s plan for marriage and sexual intimacy – one man, and one woman, for life. Homosexuality is not a ‘valid alternative lifestyle.’ The Bible condemns it as sin. It is not, however, unforgivable sin. The same redemption available to all sinners is available to homosexuals. They, too, may become new creations in Christ.”

“At the 2012 SBC Annual Meeting, the SBC passed a resolution affirming “that gender identity is determined by biological sex and not by one’s self-perception—a perception which is often influenced by fallen human nature in ways contrary to God’s design (Ephesians 4:17–18).”

“In 2017, top leaders of the SBC joined ined other evangelical leaders in a statement Aug. 29 denouncing LGBTQ people and their identities as “inconsistent with God’s holy purposes in creation and redemption.”

ON MARRIAGE EQUALITY

“In 2003, the Southern Baptist Convention issued a statement reaffirming its opposition to marriage equality. It called on “Southern Baptists not only to stand against same-sex unions but to demonstrate our love for those practicing homosexuality by sharing with them the forgiving and transforming power of the gospel of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 6:9-11).”

“At at the 2012 SBC Annual Meeting, the SBC also reiterated its opposition to frame marriage equality as a civil rights issue.”

ON NON-DISCRIMINATION

“The SBC does not support anti-discrimination protections for LGBTQ people and opposes LGBTQ equality. to the current repeal of the policy “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” that prohibited LGBTQ individuals to serve openly in the military.”

“In June 2010, a resolution (On Homosexuality and the United States Military) passed that states: “we oppose changing current law to normalize the open presence of homosexuals in the armed forces, and insist on keeping the finding of Congress that sustains current law, which states that even ‘the presence in the armed forces’ of persons demonstrating ‘a propensity or intent to engage in homosexual acts’ creates ‘an unacceptable risk to . . . the essence of military capability.’”

ON ORDINATION

“The Southern Baptist Convention does not ordain openly LGBTQ people, nor does it ordain women. However, alternative Baptist denominations such as the Alliance of Baptists do ordain both women and LGBTQ people.”

IN 2014 HRC ATTACKED THE SBC AFRESH WHILE IN REALITY WERE INVITED TO A MEETING WITH KEY LEADERS LIKE RUSSELL MOORE OF THE ERLC AND ALBERT MOHLER.

As Southern Baptists Meet To Talk Same-Sex Marriage Strategy, Don’t Be Fooled By “Softer” Rhetoric

October 27, 2014

SBC Remains One of Nation’s Most Virulently Anti-LGBT Denominations

“WASHINGTON – As members of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) gather today in Nashville for a conference aimed at devising strategy to combat the movement toward marriage equality for LGBT Americans, the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation has called for an end to the denomination’s vilification of same-sex couples.”

“Though the SBC has characterized the conference, organized by its Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, as an effort to find new ways to discuss the growing acceptance of marriage equality, there should be no confusion that its well-publicized campaign to mask harsh LGBT rhetoric does not represent change in either practice or policy.”

“The head of the HRC Foundation’s Religion and Faith Program, who is attending the conference, said: “LGBT people are routinely spiritually, emotionally, and even physically harmed by the rhetoric that originates in church pulpits and seeps into playgrounds, classrooms, workplaces, and even into dinner table conversations.”

SBS LEADERS WELCOMED HRC LEADERS WHO STILL MADE A SHOW OF FIERCE OPPOSTION

“The Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) may be dressing up its upcoming conference with “softer” rhetoric, but SBC policies and practices remain the most stridently anti-LGBT among religious organizations in the U.S.”

“A sampling of typical LGBT animus from ERLC/SBC this year alone:
*ERLC President Russell Moore announces a conference to ostensibly help pastors answer community questions and asserts that “homosexual behavior is still a sin,” and “same-sex marriage Biblically forbidden.”

WALL STREET JOURNAL, WHO HAD LOVED MOORE’S MORE “WINSOME TONE” TOWARD THE LGBTQ ISSUES TOUTED THE ERLC/HRC MEETINGS AS A BREAKING OF BREAD CELEBRATION

Southern Baptists, Gay Community Break Bread at Conference

Baptists Strike New Tone on Homosexuality From the Pulpit, in Private

YET MOORE AND OTHER LEADERS MET BEHIND CLOSED DOORS WITH HRC LEADERS.

According to HRC individual reports and to social media of activist in the LGBT camp – the ERLC head Russell Moore all met together behind closed doors to chat it up …about about …well no one outside the room has ever been told and NONE OF THE BPATIST LEADERS PRESENT has ever written about this private meeting .

YES A SECRET PRIVATE MEETING WITH SBC LEADERS AND HRC IN TOOK PLACE IN 2014

Albert Mohler who admitted to “being wrong about homosexual orientation” at the 2014 PUBLIC meetings departed from his long held position that orientation was a “construct of homosexual activist hermeneutic to undermine the authority of scripture and it’s clear condemnation of homosexual behavior”. Mohler sited his concern of how his denial might make some people feel in his flip flop of convictions about the Bible vs “orientation”.

MOHLER HAD MET PERSONALLY WITH ANOTHER LGBTQ ACTIVIST THE SAME WEEK

“Mr. Mohler, head of the theological seminary, said he hoped the conference would make Christians “motivated to be unafraid to engage with LGBT persons.”

“Mr. Mohler this week met with Matthew Vines, an openly gay Christian author who argues the Bible doesn’t prohibit lifelong same-sex marriage. Mr. Mohler wrote a response to Mr. Vines’ book, “God and the Gay Christian.”

“It was a gracious, honest conversation. I think all evangelical Christians are having to learn anew how to discuss these issues,” Mr. Mohler said.”

“The pair agreed to keep in touch over email, and alert each other if one ever felt wrongly portrayed by the other.”

“This was an amazing event,” said Mr. Vines. “Not for the public sessions but for the private meetings. It’s not like anyone is suddenly pro-gay,” said Mr. Vines. But, he added, “it feels like a new era.”

HRC AND OTHER SOUTHERN BAPTIST HISTORY

In 2009 the Obama Administration brought faith leaders together in his Faith Based Neighborhood Partnerships overhaul and grant program. The SBC Executive Committee CEO at the time Frank Page joined the Obama team for the Faith Based Partners grant programs. SBC moved into position to find “common ground for the common good ” and the common motivation of grant money from tax dollars for community development and other related projects. Among the partners the SBC CEO Frank Page sat down along side was the leader of the Human Rights Campaign Religion & Faith Program,

Inaugural Advisory Council

The inaugural Advisory Council published its report of recommendations to the President in 2010. Chapters of the report are devoted to each of the following six subject areas.

Harry Knox
Director, Religion and Faith Program, Human Rights Campaign Foundation

Dr. Frank Page
Pastor, Taylors First Baptist Church; President Emeritus, Southern Baptist Convention

(Page was also the CEO of the Executive Committee until forced to step down years later due to an unspecified moral failure)

THE TASK FORCE SELECTED ITS OWN PRO LGBTQ LAW FIRM

(Information from Baptist Global News coverage of SBC meetings)

“The task force explains this matter in its Sept. 29 letter: “The task force retained our own legal counsel, Linklaters attorneys Adam Lurie and Richard Smith. Both men are former senior Department of Justice officials with extensive background also in corporate law. “

“LINKLATERS BOAST “DIVERSITY & INCLUSION IS THE PULSE OF OUR FIRM”

We want to be known as the ‘best in class’ firm for Diversity & Inclusion – a diverse and inclusive workplace where everyone feels they belong, and diversity is celebrated.

Our motivation

“We know that our differences make us a better law firm. Our diversity enables us to attract the best talent, drive innovation, and deliver the best experience to everyone who comes into contact with us. That’s why being a leader in Diversity & Inclusion is an integral part of our firm’s vision and strategy. As a responsible business, it is important to us that we represent the diversity of our people, our clients and our communities, and that we create an inclusive culture in which everyone – regardless of background, identity and circumstance – can reach their full potential.”

“GLOBAL PRIORITIES OF THE FIRM INCLUDE LGBT “

Strange days have indeed found the Southern Baptist Convention during it’s sexual abuse scandal and the efforts to see it investigated.

CONCLUSION

So the Southern Baptist Convention and many of it’s key players in the sex abuse scandal investigation have a long and curious history with the LGBTQ lobby and Human Rights Campaign in particular. NOW they are adding to both that history and the curiosity surrounding it by overlooking or omitting or blind to the same sex sexual abuse in their midst -while in the middle of the present investigation into the abuse. And by choosing a law firm which boast of its own inclusion and diversity and multi year AWARD WINNING STATUS with HRC, the Southern Baptist investigation is beyond the bounds of curiosity and falls far short of the integrity the Task Force and the Southern Baptist leadership are saying they seek to ensure in the investigation. The combined realities actually INVITE and provide massive license for suspicion and outright doubt over the entire process and intentions. And the surviving victims look to be set up to be abused all over again.

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 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 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.””

MORE EVANGELICAL COLLABORATION WITH COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS

IN FEBRUARY 2021 THE BIDEN ADMINISTRAITON RENEWED THE FAITH BASED PARTNERSHIPS FUNNELING FEDERAL DOLLARS TO CHRISTIAN MINISTRIES AND DENOMINATIONS. BY MAY 2021 LEADING EVANGELICALS WERE WORKING WITH FBP DIRECTOR AND THE GLOBALIST COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS ON “RELIGIOUS COMMUNITIES ROLE IN” COVID MANAGMENT.

Rev Thomas Littleton

Revelations of continued collaboration by key evangelical leaders like Ed Stetzer with the Council on Foreign Relations have been unsettling confirmation on what some have been warning about for decades. The once biblically conservative evangelical church cannot blindly follow their leaders unless they wish to be delivered into the hands of anti-Christ global forces, groomed into “useful idiots” and trafficked as the volunteer workforce of the future.

“The Religion Community’s Role in Managing COVID-19”

Wednesday, May 19, 2021

Speakers

Jacqueline J. Lewis

Senior Minister for Public Theology and Transformation, Middle Collegiate Church

Melissa Rogers

Executive Director, Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, White HousePresider

Walter Kim

President, National Association of Evangelicals

THE HEAD OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF EVANGLEICALS IS MODERATING THE CFR EVENT

Religion and Foreign Policy Workshop

“KIM:Thank you. Greetings, I’m Walter Kim, president of the National Association of Evangelicals, an organization that connects forty denominations and scores of Christian institutions and ministry. I’m delighted to be part of this conversation on the religion community’s role in managing COVID-19. And along with me, as conversation partners, are Reverend Jacqui Lewis, senior minister for public theology and transformation at Middle Church in New York City. She is an author and activist preacher, public theologian, working particularly in the areas of racial justice, but also seeing the church as a place for social transformation. And with us, also is Melissa Rogers, executive director at the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. A role that she held previously with distinction and now has renewed. Melissa is not only an expert on religion in America, but she is also supremely capable leader to bring together people from various segments of society to address our country’s greatest needs and possibilities. So, Jacqui, Melissa, thank you for joining in this conversation.”

“ROGERS AND LEWIS: Delighted to be here. Thank you.”

THE ROLE OF FAITH BASED PARTNERSHIPS IN SEDUCTION OF THE CHURCH

MELISSA ROGERS

“One of the things I’ve mentioned is the Equity Task Force that the Biden administration has put in place along with the COVID response team. And I think that leadership and leadership in the faith community in particular in this area has launched a new conversation. And that has been all to the good.”

THE FOCUS ON INTERFAITH WORK IN THE FBP

LEWIS:

“Thank you, Melissa, for those reflections. I wanted to dovetail into this idea of resilience and maybe even to put resistance in that. I think faith communities across denominations and across Jews, Muslims, Buddhists, Sikhs, Christians, I think I’ve seen my colleagues across the nation really show the ways love, revolutionary love, has no bounds.”

BOASTING ABOUT THE 2020 THE ELECTIONS

“So I think there was, again, across the nation across denominations, ways that faith leaders found to tap into creativity, to art, to community organizing, to protesting, to voter reform—look what we did in the elections during COVID. The way that we organized ourselves to learn issues, to share, to share resources, the Poor People’s Campaign, Vote Common Good, just some of the allies that we work with. “

(NOTE: Vote Common Good- is one of the radical progressive efforts to move Christians left in their voting in order to ensure a defeat of President Donald Trump in 2020.It was headed by Emergent Doug Pagitt whos radical funding and associations have been exposed on Worldview Weekend broadcast as well as this website.)

RACE AND INTERSECTIONALITY WERE THEIR ALLIES

“We had a tough year, not just with COVID, but the George Floyd murder, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, all of these moments of kind of racial crisis, the rising violence against Asian communities. We also, as faith communities, resisted oppression, resisted violence, and resisted racism, and actually bound ourselves, I think, together in an interfaith and multi-ethnic, multi-gendered movement for justice. And so I’m really proud of that.”

SHAMING FAITH LEADERS WHO DOUBTED THE PANDEMIC RESPONSE

“And I would say maybe one more thing, not to be polemic, but to say, in some places, faith pretended that the pandemic wasn’t real, okay. In some places, faith-based leaders gave their folks a sense that wearing a mask or distancing from one another was against faith, that if God was real and good that we wouldn’t have to do that. And I struggled to understand that, I just want to make sure I say that out loud, to understand how responsible we are, for the ways our congregants take in information through the lens of faith leaders who they trust, and how powerful that is, right? And how important it is that we steward that power well.”

BACK TO KIM CELEBRATING THE THEOLOGY OF PANDEMIC MEDICINE

KIM:

“I’ve heard words—resilience, resistance, engagement, creativity. And I sense that the work of the NAE  face very similar issues. And, we’ve been seeking to engage in a few different ways. One is to inform. And so very early on, getting information out there, not only about the nature of this virus, but also about responses and—Jacqui, to your point, getting good information that puts it, not only in medical terms, but also in theological terms—medicine as a gift from God, the kind of creativity that was required to engage with worship service that both of you have mentioned, and in some ways, this has been a remarkable moment of entrepreneurial spirit within churches, spirit-led creativity that I would wish to highlight. But it’s been complicated, right?”

KIM PLAYS THE ASIAN RACE CARD BECAUSE OF WUHAN ORIGINS OF THE VIRUS

NOTE THE SOCIAL AND RACIAL JUSTICE SCRIPT

“And so, we’ve not only had to inform, but we’ve had to collaborate on a variety of issues, not only the medical issues, but the racial justice issues, and certainly as an Asian-American, I sense deeply the recent turns that really are revelation of long standing issues, that perhaps in the Asian-American, Pacific Islander community have been more silently endured.”

“NAE that we’ve been seeking to do is engagement, of actually participating, not just talking and building alliances, and developing this sense of solidarity, but engaging and becoming vaccinations sites at churches, or engaging with advocacy issues that deal with Black and Brown communities that have been disproportionately impacted. So, I sense, along with you, both this creative moment, but also challenging moment. And now I want to dive more specifically in why and how religious communities are particularly important to our national response to COVID. And by COVID, I’m not just meaning the virus, physical virus, but I mean, this whole last year and what has been revealed in our social settings. “

LEWIS GOES TOTALLY OFF THE GRID IN RACIAL CLAIMS WITH COVID

” And there’s this way in which what COVID showed us all is Black and Brown people die first—are most devastated. In fact, whole generations of Latinx, Hispanic men are actually lost to COVID. The ones who are on the frontlines, the one who are in the bodega jobs, the ones who drive the taxis, the ones who drive the Ubers.”

THE CHURCH IS CHARGED WITH ECONOMIC JUSTICE

“So there’s an economic reality that faith communities can help people understand—that our economy, if our economy is going to be God’s economy, how do we think about paying people more who work less? How do we—who work in these frontline jobs? How do we think about paid leave for moms and dads? How do we think about a living wage? How do we think about giving, making sure that everybody has healthcare? All those economic issues show themselves to us. Along with, again, the racial issues show themselves to us. We found out that we’ve not overcome, we’ve not overcome the way caste and race cause us to oppress one another. And I think those of us who do theology have an urgent responsibility to teach our congregants, to teach our faith leaders, the oneness of God, the many languages God speaks, the value that God has on all human life. The way that we are one people called to one, one hope, one ethic, and I think that we not only have a responsibility, we have an urgent calling, to make sure that these theologies of welcome, these theologies of love and justice become like air we breathe, and not so much caught in creed, and culture.”

MELISSA ROGERS JOB -ENGAGE THE FAITH COMMUNITIES IN BIDEN ADMINS AGENDA

KIM:

“Melissa, your job is to get faith communities engaged. So I imagine you have a lot of why’s and how’s.”

ROGERS:

“There are some why’s and how’s, yes. One of the things that I think has become even more clear during this period, is that because of the role that faith plays in our country, religious leaders and faith-based organizations are vital to public health. And you don’t have to be a person of faith necessarily to see that, and let me just talk through one example. When we were thinking about early on getting facts to people about the virus and the vaccination, and you reference this, Walter, and also Jacqui as well, we knew that working with faith communities was going to be essential. It wasn’t a choice. It was something that had to happen in order to effectively meet people across the country and around the world. And some of the reasons for that are just very factual. Houses of worship are pervasive, and they’re familiar to many Americans. Religious leaders are among the most trusted figures in our communities, and vast majority of religious leaders are enthusiastic about helping, and one of the great bright spots of this has been that, for the most part, this has brought faith communities together, and saying, we can work on this together,”

“SEEING TRUSTED FAITH LEADERS GET THE VACCINE” HELPFUL IN BUILDING TRUST

MELISSA

“This love your neighbor moment has brought us together. We know that people have fears and anxieties, questions that need to be answered. And we know that when they see someone they trust getting the vaccine, talking about the facts here, that that can really change their willingness to get the vaccine. And that matters a lot.”

FAITH COMMUNITIES KEY TO HEALTHCARE /COVID JUSTICE / HEALTH EQUITY

“We also know that many faith groups are exceptionally good at reaching underserved communities. And that matters a great deal. We also know that houses of worship are often gap fillers for a lack of culturally-sensitive healthcare. They help people you know with language barriers or with information barriers or other kinds of access barriers, for example, many minority groups and immigrants. And so it’s just shot into the public recognition, I think, that faith communities are absolutely central to public health, including to this virus but not limited to this virus”….. because we’ll face other challenges in the future and we want to make sure we’re ready. So one thing I’m really grateful for is that President Biden has understood this from the very beginning. And he was very clear that we should be working with faith communities of all kinds, and indeed, has himself visited pop-up vaccination clinics at a chapel recently, and has always taken a great interest in this. So it’s a great moment, I think, to think about how the government works with faith communities in a way that respects church-state separation, and religious liberty for everyone, and partners on shared goals, and make sure that no one is left behind.”

KIM ADDRESSES THE ONGOING CHALLENGE OF VACCINATIONS

KIM:

“There’s a tremendous kind of collaborative spirit that’s developed as a result of this challenge. And, of course, there are moments of fragmentation, we are human. And despite the call to shared humanity, there is a streak of obstinance in all humans. But, by and large, I have entered into all sorts of conversations I don’t think I would have had otherwise. Tomorrow night, I’ll be with bBlackdoctors.org, in a collaborative event, a multi-racial approach to this challenge of vaccination. “

“And these are relationships and partnerships, these are collaborations that maybe would not have existed. But the new kinds of friendships that develop from this, hold a promise far beyond this pandemic. They are friendships, they are relationships, that could be leveraged for other sorts of social challenges in the future, that the faith community could be using this as an occasion, not just to solve a problem of this past year, but to engage with problems in the coming years that beset us. “

KIM CONFIRMS THE NAE WORK WTH AD COUNCIL /COVID COLLABORATIVE

“So at the NAE we collaborated with the Ad Council and faith leaders in Black and Brown communities to produce ads that the NAE—we could not have produced. But the Ad Council, that’s their job, that’s their expertise, and to be able to use that in the collaborative effort to get information out, but distributed in these trusted places. Both of you talked about the church as being this trusted, localized, trusted place. And these are very powerful issues, because, you know, if we’re going to address issues of racial justice, yes, they’ll be national conversations, but they’re going to be localized efforts that need to move the needle for change, the conversations on the local level. So this has been very heartening for us to broach these opportunities together.”

MELISSA ROGERS TOUTS THE BIDEN ADMINS PUSH FOR FBP ACTIONS

ROGERS:

“Okay. Sure. Yeah, well, so this week has been a landmark week, as the President announced more than 60 percent of people eighteen years and older have received at least one dose of the vaccination. Cases have continued to decrease, hospital admissions are down, deaths, thank God, are down, and we’re vaccinating between about 1.5 to 2 million people per day. So I think we are winning the war against the virus, but the battle is not done. There is an incredible amount of work ahead of us, particularly this summer. The President has set a goal that 70 percent of the country’s adults will have at least one vaccination shot by July 4, and 160 million Americans will be fully vaccinated by July 4. And in that regard, I’d just like to mention, if I could, several things that, and I know I’m preaching to the choir here, but I hope that we can all redouble our efforts this summer and just want to mention a few resources that you can take advantage of, some of which are new. One is vaccines.gov, to help people find a location near them where they can be vaccinated. They can also text their zip code to 438829, that’s 4388292, to find a vaccination near them. There’s an 800 number that they can call. And also, we’re having a Digital Day of Action this Friday, May 21.”

KIM SPEAKS OF BREAKING BREAD AS A COVID CORPS MEMBER PASTOR

” Speaking as not only president of the NEA, but as a local pastor, reengagement of all that church represents. The breaking of bread together, the studying of the Bible in small groups, the being on mission in our neighborhoods, sending short-term mission teams overseas in different contexts to help out, I mean all the myriads of ways that the church represents an opportunity of service. And this is true of other faith traditions as well. And it’s in part why I joined with the COVID Community Corps and recently put out a Trusted Voices video with the Department of Health and Human Services that followed me around as I got my second vaccination shot, and one of the most compelling things about that second vaccination shot for me was to see the people gathered there.”

KIIM/NAE VISION OF “WHAT AMERICA COULD BE”

KIM:

“I mean, men, women, old, young, racial diversity, ethnic diversity represented in the line as I was standing, waiting to get my shot. And it really was the sense that we can do this. And we are doing this. And it really does take everyone. And that’s a very compelling vision of what America could be. And in its better moments, really is, but we need to continue to persist in this. “

CONCLUSION

For 18 months this writer and a few others like Brannon Howse have warned that very influential evangelical leaders were aligning the church with globalist in the pandemic. No doubt the church should play a role in relieving suffering and grief but not as partners with government funding in Faith Based Partnerships with the Biden administration or with Council on Foreign Relations view of “What America could be” since their global dreams began in 1921.

Evangelicals like Ed Stetzer and Russell Moore (who has worked very closely with Kim and the NAE with the Ad Council /Facebook for Faith) have lost sight of their own vision and calling if they ever had it. God has never called on the church or it’s leaders to be partnered with the very forces seeking to destroy it’s influence and ability to bring the Gospel and REAL HOPE to the dying .Eternity is the vision most needed by those who faithfully serve the living God. Not the Faith Based Partnership justice and equity gospel nor the Council on Foreign Relations anti-Christ, enslavement vision honed over the last century.

Nothing could be farther from the work of God than these godless agendas. The deception at this level is well beyond ignorance. It is demonic.
