TGC EMPLOYS OBAMA “AMBASSADOR TO AMERICA’S BELIEVERS” FOR 2020

MICHEAL WEAR AND HIS FORMER BOSS ARE TARGETING  EVANGELICALS CONCERNED OVER WOKE BY ACTING CONCERNED OVER WOKE WHILE WOKE AS WOKE CAN BE.

Rev Thomas Littleton                                                                                                      10-30-2019

 

How politically gullible are many evangelical Christians today? Recent efforts to manipulate the conservative and the WOKE base appear to be glaringly obvious so we might at least assume that the most dedicated progressive political operatives think we are virtually clueless.

RECENT STORY FROM BUSINESS INSIDER

HEADLINE

FORMER PRESIDENT OBAMA USES HIS FOUNDATIONS MEETING AS A MEDIA MOMENT TO THE WOKE GENERATION

“Obama laid into young people being ‘politically woke’ and ‘as judgmental as possible’ in a speech about call-out culture”

“Former President Barack Obama derided “call-out culture” in a speech at the Obama Foundation summit on Tuesday, saying achieving real change was more complex than being “as judgmental as possible.”

“This idea of purity and you’re never compromised and you’re always politically woke and all that stuff — you should get over that quickly,” Obama told a crowd in Chicago.”

“He added: “I do get a sense sometimes now among certain young people, and this is accelerated by social media, that the way of me making change is to be as judgmental as possible about other people and that’s enough.”

“Like if I tweet or hashtag about how you didn’t do something right, or used the wrong verb, then I can sit back and feel pretty good about myself because: ‘Man, did you see how woke I was? I called you out.'”

“The world is messy,” the 44th US president said. “There are ambiguities. People who do really good stuff have flaws. People who you are fighting may love their kids and, you know, share certain things with you.”

“That is not activism,” he concluded. “That is not bringing about change. If all you’re doing is casting stones, you are probably not going to get that far.”

A WARNING ON WOKE MARKETING

FOX NEWS COVERED THE STORY

https://www.foxnews.com/media/tomi-lahren-barack-obama-woke-liberals

“There’s something wrong in the Democratic Party when former president Barack Obama is “looking like the voice of reason” to RepublicansFox Nation host Tomi Lahren said Wednesday.”

“Appearing on “Fox & Friends” with hosts Steve Doocy, Ainsley Earhardt and Brian Kilmeade, Lahren said that “that’s when you know the Democratic Party has gotten this bad.”

WHILE WOKE IS THE NEW BLACK IN TGC /EVANGELICAL CIRCLES COUNT ON THE OBAMA RHETORIC TO BE MARKETED TO EVANGELICALS AND INFORMED BY HIS “AMBASSADOR TO AMERICAN BELIEVERS MICHAEL WEAR. …WAIT FOR IT …..

WOKE EVANGELICALS AND TGC

Woke Is . . .

Woke Is . . .

 |  

 

“Yesterday a dear brother asked me, “What do you think about woke church?” Seems these days all my blogging is answering questions of one sort or another. And this seems like a good question to answer publicly, since there’s so much talk about being “woke” or “wokeness” from both advocates and opponents.”

“I’m not sure this adds much to the discussion, but it’s the gist of my answer yesterday.”

Woke: A Lineage

“First, being “woke” isn’t at all new. I know Carl Ellis has been trying to help people understand that in some of his public talks. But it seems a lot of younger people think they’re experiencing something new. Solomon taught a long, long time ago, “there’s nothing new under the sun.”

MICHAEL WEAR LECTURE

 

Wears snappy screen quote is a bit ironic since HE has found his HOME both in the Obama camp AND in The Gospel Coalition .

This is what it looks like when the most progressive President in US history speaks as the voice of concern to ill informed conservative evangelicals over #WOKE . Lesson Obama’s long time faith outreach guy @MichaelRWear  now works for  @TGC
In Fact the Obama comments were not directed at young WOKE evangelicals but were on the stage of his Foundation’s event and the WOKE  young evangelicals are avid consumers of left wing news outlets. It goes without saying Obama is playing to the self identified ” Woke ” and to those concerned about it in the conservative and evangelical community. Fox News took the bait.

TGC KERN FAMILY FOUNDATION AND MICHAEL WEAR 

Greg Forster of Kern Family Foundation and Oikonomia Network which funds and coordinates on campus “Social Justice” and “Faith and Work” programs in TGC affiliated seminaries in the Southern Baptist and conservative Presbyterian circles is offering Hope for evangelicals while promoting Wears work to TGC audience .
GREG FORSTER IN 2017 – “WHAT THE WORLD NEEDS NOW IS… (NOT LOVE SWEET LOVE BUT)….MORE DEMOCRATS LIKE MICHAEL WEAR “
“If you asked me what the American republic needs most right now, at least at the human level, I would say: “more Democrats like Michael Wear.” And if you asked me what the American church needs most right now, on the human level, I would say: “more Democrats like Michael Wear.” Wear’s Reclaiming Hope: Lessons Learned in the Obama White House About the Future of Faith in America is more than just another good political memoir; it’s a window into how Christianity can find its way back toward a faithful and responsible participation in American public life.”

Hope in a Polarized Age

“Wear is an evangelical Christian whose faith led him to seek justice and mercy in the world, and he sees that fulfilled through his work as a progressive Democrat. But he also longs to overcome polarization and find ways to work with conservative Republicans—including a candid assessment of our persistent disagreements—in order to move forward together toward the justice and mercy we all seek.”

 

“Wear identifies three tangible ways our Christian hope points the way to political hope:

  1. commitment—active involvement in pursuing the authentic good of our communities rather than withdrawing into selfish isolation;
  2. justice—a firm conviction, expressed in action, that doing right is better than doing well; and
  3. humility—overcoming the domineering passions of the culture wars and seeking to be of real use to others rather than to be in charge of others.”

Deeper Understanding

“Part of the agenda of Reclaiming Hope is to establish that, in spite of the dysfunctions of the culture war, politics is good; it’s a primary mode of doing justice and mercy in God’s world. ”

FORSTER AND TGC IN PRAISE OF WEAR IN PRAISE OF OBAMA 

“This book helped answer a question I and many others have long wrestled with: Why do people love Barack Obama? The admiration of Obama is hard to understand for those of us who have been on the receiving end of his untruths and broken promises, of IRS investigations designed to shut us down illegally, and many other abuses of power. We could see through the “hope and change,” “yes we can” nonsense; why didn’t they?”

“Wear shows that Obama did exceptionally well one of the most important jobs we rely on our political leaders to do: use words to express publicly our national commitment to justice and mercy. One reason America is going south in a handbasket is because very, very few of our political leaders are able to do this well. For those who paid more attention to him than people like me did, Obama did this job masterfully.”

“Unlike most political memoirists, Wear is often delightfully self-aware about his own foibles and those of his colleagues. (At one point he and other volunteers on a long car trip pass the time by singing together; after they sing a somewhat risqué song, one remarks: “This is exactly how Republicans imagine a Democratic faith outreach operation.”)”

“Wear’s defenses of Obama’s decisions are sometimes surprisingly persuasive. I didn’t expect to be convinced that it was good Christian prudence for the Obamas not to become members of a local church in Washington. I’m just about as militant a churchman as you’ll find, but I was persuaded by Wear’s case that a modern president brings through the door with him problems and complications sufficient to severely hamper the worship and community of any congregation he enters.”

Moral Consensus

“Nonetheless, Wear is what the nation needs more of, because the nation can have no moral consensus—no shared basis for doing justice and mercy together—if religion is only welcome in one political party. And he’s what the church needs more of, because the church can’t effectively bear witness for justice and mercy—which it must do in order to preach a gospel of justice and mercy!—if all the faithful Christians are in one political party. My judgment that conservatism (to the small extent it’s still a meaningful word) is preferable to progressivism is far less important than the undeniable fact that what the nation and the church need most is a moral consensus that transcends polarization.”

What the nation and the church need most is a moral consensus that transcends polarization.

“Conservatives and progressives are both defined by their strong sense of alienation from the advanced modern life they see around them; both view modern life as morally empty. Progressives like Wear tend to believe our moral emptiness consists of insufficient concern for the well-being of those in greatest need. Conservatives tend to believe the moral emptiness of modern life consists of an excessive focus on people’s material circumstances as the measurement of their well-being, to the exclusion of personal virtue and authentic spiritual community.”
