COMMINGLE THE MONEY WITH JUSTICE : &CAMPAIGN /TGC AND THE GATHERING

SYNCHRONIZING THE CHURCHES POLITICS WITH THE FUNDING 

HOW IS THE SOCIAL JUSTICE GOSPEL IMPREGNATING EVANGELICALS MINISTRY VISION AND IT’S POLITICS ? ANSWER – SAME OLD SONG AND DANCE OF LEADERSHIP NETWORK AND THE GATHERING . NOW &CAMPAIGN TAKES THE NEXT STEP LEFT .

 

Rev Thomas Littleton                                                                                          11/9/2019

For decades the evangelical  church has been invaded and infiltrated . How? The answer is simple – by MONEY and lots of it . With the funding has come a massive amount of influence from people, organizations and “thought leaders” whose goals have nothing to do with the true Biblical mission of the church. In the last couple of years things have grown far worse as the overt effort to wed “Biblical values & social justice” exploded . & Campaign is just the latest and now one of the most obvious of such efforts among conservative Christians  .

For thirty five years the influence of one organization ,Leadership Network , has been pervasive .You would likely have never heard of Bill Hybels  of Willowcreek or Tim Keller , or Randy Pope of the conservative Presbyterian Church of America (PCA) or Rick Warren, Ed Stetzer of the conservative Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) if not for their involvement with the organization.

It is highly likely there would be no “Gospel Coalition “(TGC) . ACTS 29 and other church planting organizations would not even exist without Leadership Network. Today they are names familiar to most in their circles and denominations and are sought after speakers whose ministry models are followed globally. Fifteen years ago they would  not dare to have been so open about the sources behind them or the progressive politics they promote. But the fruit of these men’s associations is now evident in the current trajectory of their ministries and in the progressive politics of their disciples.

How much  have things  changed ? A generation discipled in our own seminaries , who embrace the ideologies and the money brought with it- are now openly part of the left wing political  leadership even attempting to alter Christians positions on open borders,  sexuality and abortion and driving socialist economics while openly boasting their goal to  “Create the new politics of the the church”.

Tim Keller ,Rick Warren and their companions must be proud . Never mind the fundamental betrayal their entire careers appear to represent .

& CAMPAIGN – THE NEW EVANGELICAL POLITICS OUT OF THE CLOSET AND IN YOUR FACE  

The progressive & Campaign lead by Michael Wear of Obama’s Faith advisor now dubbed the “Obama Ambassador to America’s Believers ” and the Atlanta based Democratic Party strategist Justin Giboney is coming out and into full view in the 2020 election cycle.It is just one example of the 2020 effort but glaring in it’s brazen deception as a third way middle of the road movement with not a single voice from the conservative side .

Praxis co-founder Dave Blanchard ,according to his bio, has worked with The Gathering

( the term praxis is sued as meaning “action oriented towards changing society”)

” he’s had the privilege of speaking at varied venues including The White House, Harvard Business School, Q, and The Gathering. ”

WORDS MATTER 

“Praxis (from Ancient Greekπρᾶξιςromanizedpraxis) is the process by which a theory, lesson, or skill is enacted, embodied, or realized. “Praxis” may also refer to the act of engaging, applying, exercising, realizing, or practicing ideas. This has been a recurrent topic in the field of philosophy, discussed in the writings of PlatoAristotleSt. AugustineFrancis BaconImmanuel KantSøren KierkegaardKarl MarxAntonio GramsciMartin HeideggerHannah ArendtPaulo FreireLudwig von Mises, and many others. It has meaning in the political, educational, spiritual and medical realms”

FRANKFURT SCHOOL CULTURAL MARXISM AND “PRAXIS”

”  Young Hegelian philosopher August Cieszkowski was one of the earliest philosophers to use the term praxis as meaning “action oriented towards changing society” in his 1838 work Prolegomena zur Historiosophie (Prolegomena to a Historiosophy). The 19th century socialist Antonio Labriola called Marxism the “philosophy of praxis”.[5][6] This description of Marxism would appear again in Antonio Gramsci‘s Prison Notebooks[7] and the writings of the members of the Frankfurt School.[8]

PRACTICING PRAXIS IN THE EVANGELICAL WORLD PAYS WELL.

Justin Giboney & Michael Wear // AND Campaign

Coalition advocating biblical values and social justice in our politics.

Oct 18, 2018 · 2 min read

“The AND Campaign equips people to be active Christian witnesses in the public square and helps to unite the church through training, coalition building, and advocacy.”

(Justin Giboney & Michael Wear (Praxis Nonprofit Fellows 2018) pitch their venture, AND Campaign, during the Nonprofit Accelerator Finale segment of The Gathering in Miami, FL, September 2018)

“The AND Campaign is a coalition of urban Christians  ( ACTUALLY LEADERSHIP IS PROVIDED BY MANY TGC PASTORS) who are determined to address the sociopolitical arena with the compassion and conviction of the Gospel. Through training, coalition building, and advocacy, they equip Christians to be more than just conservatives or liberals in the public square. By opening up denominational and demographic silos, they help believers have a greater impact and further pursue reconciliation.”

HOW CHURCH PLANTING REDISTRICTED THE DENOMINATIONS 

“& CAMPAIGN IS A COALITION OF URBAN PASTORS ”

It is not made clear  to the reader but certainly important to notice that the churches this coalition of Urban Pastor operate are largely from denominational and affiliated church planting organization like the Southern Baptist North American Missions Board / Send Network and the TGC affiliated organizations that work within the denominations like 9MARKS and ACTS 29 planting networks. Like the Democratic Party whose governors win state elections at the turn of a decade as the census is conducted – these leaders have redistricted our denominations one church plant at a time and used our own funding (plus that of these outside influences)  and missions organizations to do it .

WHAT IS THE GATHERING 

Homepage

“IN 1985, FIVE PEOPLE MET FOR THE FIRST TIME  WITH A VERY SIMPLE AGENDA.”

“They were all engaged in Christian philanthropy and wanted to create a group of like-minded individuals to serve as a source of spiritual encouragement and a sounding board of peers. They wanted to set aside a time each year to find a safe, neutral place to relax, talk, and learn – and to hopefully bring their families. And so The Gathering began.”

“Our mission is to cultivate a community of givers who grow in their effectiveness and mature in their faith, while nurturing the next generation of philanthropists. The expressions of The Gathering have now expanded to include our annual conference of a few hundred people across multiple generations, as well as regional get-togethers and ministry trips throughout the year.”

In short The Gathering draws in big donors and ministries needing funding into the same event – in the same room to commingle and match make .

WARNING :

THIS IS WHY INVITING GIBONEY AND WEAR /&CAMPAIGN INTO THE EVENT IN SEPTEMBER 2018 SIGNALED BIBLICAL VALUES AND SOCIAL JUSTICE = AS SUCCESSFUL DONOR GOALS AND FUNDING LANGUAGE .

WHO IS FRED SMITH ?

Fred Smith
Founder

 

“Fred Smith is the Founder of The Gathering, which he led for three decades through the end of 2018. As well, Fred was the Founder of Fourth Partner, a local foundation in Tyler that was focused on philanthropy and community development within the East Texas area. He previously joined Bob Buford in founding Leadership Network, where he served as President for 12 years. Fred spent several years as a teacher and administrator at Charlotte Christian School in North Carolina and The Stony Brook School in New York. He is a Navy veteran and a graduate of Denver University and Harvard Divinity School.”

OUR MENTORS

FRED SMITH

“Fred Smith is a graduate of Denver University and Harvard Divinity School. Fred spent several years as teacher and administrator at Charlotte Christian School in North Carolina and The Stony Brook School in New York before moving to Tyler and joining Bob Buford in founding Leadership Network, where he served as President for 12 years. Fred was also the Founder of Fourth Partner, a local foundation that was focused on philanthropy and community development within the East Texas area. Additionally, Fred is the Founder and President of The Gathering, connecting an international community of givers focused on the support of Christian Ministries. His good friend Steve Garber of The Washington Institute has said this about Fred’s work. “…he has read widely and cared deeply, resisting the easy black-and-white responses that most of us are all-too-willing to live with…his personal beliefs do not find a home in the partisan politics we know so well. And over time, he has earned the trust of good people all over the country.” Despite a lifetime of accomplishment, Fred will tell you his true vocation is that of a Sunday School teacher and it is this role for which he would most like to be remembered. Fred and his wife, Carol, have two grown daughters and a son-in-law. They also have three well-loved grandchildren.”

A FEW OF THE GATHERINGS PARTNERS 

BOB BUFORD /LEADERSHIP NETWORK

Image may contain: 2 people, people smiling, indoor

FRED SMITH, BUFORD AND LEADERSHIP NETWORK “TRANSFORMING THE CHURCH”

Our Founder

OUR FOUNDER: BOB BUFORD

(BUFORD IS THE TEXAS BILLIONAIRE WHOSE GREAT ADMIRATION FOR PETER DRUCKER’S MANAGEMENT AND VLADIMIR ( Ilyich Ulyanov ) LENIN’S CENTRALIZED PLANNING BIRTHED LEADERSHIP NETWORK AND CORRALLED A GENERATION OF PASTORS.)

“Leadership Network’s Founder, Bob Buford, (1939-2018) achieved considerable financial success as CEO of Buford Television, Inc., a business started by his mother. It had begun with a single ABC affiliate in Tyler, Texas. It grew it into a network of cable systems across the country. In 1999 Buford helped sell the family business interest in order to create philanthropic initiatives designed to serve churches. He often joked that he hoped the last check he wrote just before he died would bounce—because he had given away the last of his millions.”

“Through philanthropy and personal engagement, Buford significantly contributed to three of American Christianity’s major landscape shifts over recent decades. First was the rise and proliferation of large-attendance Protestant churches led by innovative, entrepreneurial leaders. Second was the empowerment of Christian lay leaders making a second-career shift from “success to significance” through a “halftime” transition—terms that trace their popularity to Buford’s writings. Third was the formation of the Drucker Institute, a network of organizations designed to further the teachings of management expert Peter Drucker. Drucker not only extensively mentored Buford, but through introductions by Buford, also mentored several high-visibility pastors like Saddleback Church founder Rick Warren.”

“These three major emphases weave together under the umbrella of Buford’s later-life mission: to transform the latent energy of American Christianity into active energy.”

“In 1984, at age 45, Buford, Fred Smith, Jr. and Gayle Carpenter started Leadership Network as a way of trying to help the newly emerging wave of pastors who were breaking worship attendance barriers of 1,000 and sometimes 2,000 or more. During his business years, Buford had spent countless hours talking with and seeking guidance from Peter Drucker, the father of modern management, and he now tapped into Drucker’s guidance for how best to frame Leadership Network. He later remarked that Leadership Network would not be the same—in fact, might not exist at all—were it not for Peter Drucker. (Buford later developed that 23-year mentoring relationship into a book, Drucker and Me.)”

“Leadership Network  (LN) started in 1984 with a budget of $5,000, and held its first forum with 55 churches that had attendance of 800 and higher. By 2017 the organization was annually serving more than 400 larger churches through in-person events which included more than 1,500 leaders. Online conferences reached upwards of 25,000, and Leadership Network Advance subscriptions exceeded 50,000.”

 

BILL  AND MELINDA GATES FOUNDATION DOLLARS -LEADERSHIP NETWORK’S RICK WARREN PAVED THE WAY

BILL AND MELINDA GATES FOUNDATION  funding has been associated with Rick Warren’s global PEACE plan and it’s work in the “Global Health Initiative ” since at least 2007 .

Bill Hybels (another LN product) and his Global Leadership Network( a Leadership Network clone ) have hosted Melinda Gates in its annual GLN conference.

Why is this a problem , especially in global health ? Gates parents long time involvement with Planned Parenthood and support of global population control ARE CORE VALUES  . See Physicians for Life story documenting this disturbing Gates History .

SO LEADERSHIP NETWORK DISCIPLES DO NOT APPEAR TO HESITATE ABOUT GATES FOUNDATION ASSOCIATIONS  – ANY WONDER THE POLITICS OF & CAMPAIGN WERE INTRODUCED AT THE GATHERING ?

GATES FAMILY PRO ABORTION HISTORY 

GATES PBS INTERVIEW -MALTHUSIAN FEARS AND GATES FOUNDATION FUNDING

“In a lengthy interview with Bill Moyers released today, Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates reveals the inspiration for his funding of pro-abortion population control measures.”

“Responding to a question by Moyers on how he came to fund “reproductive issues” Gates answered, “When I was growing up, my parents were always involved in various volunteer things. My dad was head of Planned Parenthood. And it was very controversial to be involved with that. And so it’s fascinating. At the dinner table my parents are very good at sharing the things that they were doing. And almost treating us like adults, talking about that.”

“In the interview Gates says he is moved by measurable progress and on “safe birth reproductive family planning issues” he says.”

“There’s a measurable impact when you can go in and educate families, but primarily women, about their different choices. There’s real impact that you can have in this area. Anything to do with reproductive health.”

“He claims he has seen beyond Malthusian conceptions of useless eaters since, he says, he has seen that by improving health and education population decreases as parents decide to have less children.”

“Despite all his distancing from Malthus, Gates remains steadfast to the unfounded Malthusian fear of overpopulation.”

GATES FOUNDATION FUNDING/TRAINING  YOUNG LEADERS FOR SOCIAL CHANGE 

We The Future

We the Future showcases the stories of ten young leaders working to build an equitable and inclusive world through their respective social change movements. Inspired by Amplifier’s We the Future education campaign and co-curated with the Gates Foundation Discovery Center’s Youth Ambassador Program, the exhibit celebrates youth leadership and action across a range of social justice issues and invites audiences of all ages to imagine and become the change they want to see in the world.”

YOUNG LEADERS

Gates Foundation “Young Leaders of Social Change ”

“QUEER RIGHTS” INCLUDED IN GATES YLFSC VISION “

“The young leaders featured in this exhibition are shaping a new era of human and environmental rights. They are building organizations, passing legislation, creating media, and speaking out about climate justice, criminal justice reform, voting rights, queer rights, immigration justice, disability justice, and gun reform.”

THE CHURCH MISSION AND OUTSIDE FUNDING 

A QUESTION OF ETHICS AND VISION

 

So is The  Gathering moving Gates Foundation funding into their organization ? (see the post below from Oct 2018 ) Can The Gathering work to couple Christians- both donors and ministries with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation ? What is the wisdom or justification for the mingling of the Kingdoms great commission with the malthusianism of planned parenthood and the globalism of  organizations like the Gates Foundation funding ?

QUESTIONS 

A FEW HONEST QUESTIONS

How much  money from such sources is coming into Christian ministries?

How long have such partnerships flourished without the knowledge of the church?

How direct an impact does this funding have on the “new politics of the evangelicals “?

Why do missions organizations and ministries, church planting organizations, denominations  need our money if they are tapping  multi-billion dollar foundations coffers?

How are we so foolish to think we can wed the mission of the true church to the political structures and globalist ideas of the lost and godless organizations who see the answers to global problems in methods totally antithetical to the Word of the Living God?

CONCLUSION 
Over 35 years ago  Leadership Network began flooding the ideologies of secular leadership models and Peter Drucker into the church via “invitation only “outreaches  to selected “innovative young pastors “. Now those pastors are running much of the modern day evangelicalism machine.
Co-founder of The Gospel Coalition is a Leadership Network disciple and product of it’s promotion.Keller and TGC are at the very core of the progressive politics invading the church and the are driving the global urban vision. Rick Warren, another major Leadership Network “success story”  has taken the Purpose Driven vision globally and infected the largest protestant denomination in America with it.
From the publishing companies to media outlets like Christianity Today to the seminaries  , church  planting organizations to the pulpits themselves -the Leadership Network “investment ” in evangelicalism has saturated everything in the mainstream.
Now in the wedding of & Campaign/ “Biblical Values and Social Justice ” merged with The Gathering and the TGC leadership – and watch the SBC liberal Democratic “ETHICIST ” Russell Moore running into the mix- not only is the long game “SOCIAL CHANGE IN THE CHURCH ” plan in evidence but the pure PURPOSEFUL PERVERSION of the Gospel is bearing fruit .

Matthew 7:15-20

You Will Know Them by Their Fruits

15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.”

ERLC’s DANIEL DARLING IN INTERFAITH MOVEMENT LEADERSHIP

NEIGHBORLY FAITH PUSHING INTERFAITH DIALOG ON CAMPUSES LIKE WHEATON AND MOODY WITH THE HELP OF SBC LEADERS FROM ERLC/ LIFEWAY AND MORE

Rev Thomas Littleton                                                                                          11-6-2019

The efforts touted as evangelistic relationship building across faith boundaries may sound like good evangelistic strategy to the undiscerning until you consider the ultimate outcomes being served are “common good” consensus and to engender tolerance. Also when those strategies involve Christian and Muslim dialog -the effort tends to be one sided . When players from the Southern Baptist entities like the ERLC and international aid organizations like World Vision are involved – you can be assured that both progressive political goals AND grant funding from open borders foundations are involved. Experience has taught many believers not to take these efforts at face value or as merely “evangelistic ” strategies . Much more is at stake and the players involved have far more to gain. So why are Christian colleges and  universities facilitating such meetings and organizations ? And why is Russell Moore’s ERLC helping provide leadership and validation to it?

NEWSWEEK COVERED THE RECENT NEIGHBORLY FAITH CONFERENCE AT WHEATON.

“Muslim and Evangelical Christian students convened at a conference at Wheaton College over the weekend to explore what they could do to ameliorate relations between their two religious groups, a situation the event’s organizers called “the greatest interreligious challenge of our time.””The conference, which took place on November 1-2 was arranged by Neighborly Faith, an organization that bills itself as “a nationwide movement bringing Christians and Muslims together.”

The conference resulted from a partnership between Neighborly Faith and various groups evangelical college, according to a press release from the organization.

If past polling results are any indicator, the folks at Neighborly Faith are right to think that there is room for improvement in evangelical-Muslim relations, especially on the part of the Christians.”

“According to the results of a survey from the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding and PSB Research released in March, most evangelical Christians do not harbor much interest in “building bridges” with Muslims.”

“The survey (which used results from equal numbers of Evangelicals and Muslims), found that only 22 percent of evangelical participants said they had regular interactions with Muslims. A similarly small number believed “that such interaction helps the groups to understand each other better,” according to World Religion News. By contrast, 53 percent of Muslim respondents said they interact with Christians frequently.”

“Further, the survey indicated that 61 percent of evangelical Christians supported the so-called “Muslim ban” that the Trump administration implemented between 2017 and 2018, as opposed to only 20 percent of Muslims.”

“More than 20 speakers attended the event, which was designed for evangelical and Muslim students, according to the press release.”

OUTCOMES OF 2019 CONFERENCE CELEBRATED 

Neighborly Faith
@NeighborlyFaith

After the Wheaton conference (conservative evangelical students):
-88% more sympathetic to Muslim hardships in America –
77% more interested in studying Islam –
75% more concerned about how my church is treating Muslims –
82% more likely to participate in a Christian-Muslim event.
“Multi-faith is the way: It names & honors the irreconcilable theological differences to respect the essence of someone else’s identity. Such an approach builds trust, reveals strategy and accelerates practical collaboration for the common good of all faiths, and none.”
Neighborly Faith
@NeighborlyFaith

“Among conservative evangelical students, a post-conference survey showed that while 49% had neutral or somewhat negative attitudes toward Muslims before conference, only 6% remained neutral and 0% maintained a negative attitude after the conference.”

Most mainstream concerns over the present wave of “social gospel”/ “Social Justice ” perversions in the church today resulted from the April 4th 2018 MLK/50 conference co-sponsored by The Gospel Coalition and the Ethics and Religious Liberties Commission. At MLK/50 – the racial slurs and divisive rhetoric presently in play in the church came into the light of day and  have remained a constant. It was obvious to most who were paying attention that the same old social gospel of decades ago had found its’s way into the very heart of our church leadership . Not only had the divisive narratives of endless victimhood and racial politics taken root but the ML/50 was merely  a manifestation of a long game effort. Also it was clear much bigger tentacles of some creature of the political deep had gripped the leaders of TGC/ERLC. This was weaponized racism wearing a short skirt of reformed theology in a strong wind.

FROM THE TGC SITE ON MLK/50

MLK50 Conference

“On April 3-4, 2018, in Memphis, TN The Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission and The Gospel Coalition hosted a special event titled “MLK50: Gospel Reflections from the Mountaintop,” to reflect on the 50th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s tragic death.”

“The 50th anniversary of King’s tragic death marked an opportunity for Christians to reflect on the state of racial unity in the church and the culture. It created the occasion to reflect on where Christians have been and look ahead to where we must go as we pursue racial unity in the midst of tremendous tension.”

“Key speakers included Charlie Dates, Matt Chandler, Jackie Hill Perry, Eric Mason, Russell Moore, Trip Lee, John Piper, Benjamin Watson, and many others.”

ONE OF THE STARK HIDDEN REALITIES OF TGC/ ERLC’s MLK/50

Justin Giboney is a leader in the & CAMPAIGN which seeks the introduce the new politics of evangelicals and to “disrupt”  the 2020 election. They seek to combine “Biblical Values & Social Justice  to create  justice driven evangelical voters . The work already encompasses many young URBAN TGC church planters from the Southern Baptist Send Network and other planting organizations related to The Gospel Coalition.

JUST GOSPEL 2020 

Leaders like Russell Moore and David Platt -both Southern Baptist will be conferencing with Giboney in March in the “Just Gospel 2020 ” conference .

Home 1 – Classic Conference

“The Just Gospel 2020 conference goal is to help Christians think biblically and deeply about being Christians and taking our Christian identity and perspective into our political lives. We hope to aid each other in our discipleship. We are “strangers and exiles on the earth” who “desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one” (Heb. 11:13, 16). We hope to model how Christians who differ in secondary and political matters can nevertheless do so charitably and in a way that preserves both unity and freedom of conscience. We hope to make a difference—for the Church and the country.”

The State of Racial Tension in America

“The State of Racial Tension in America is a panel discussion with Christina Edmondson, Justin Giboney, Collin Hansen, Juan Sanchez, and Benjamin Watson that was delivered at the MLK50 Conference in Memphis, TN on April 4, 2018.”

The State of Racial Tension in America

TGC RAN A STORY AGAIN IN NOVEMBER 2018 FROM THE MLK/50 AND GILBONEY

FEATURING A QUOTE FROM GILBONEY

Navigating Racial Tension as American Christians

Navigating Racial Tension as American Christians

“Any way you look at it, black people have been enslaved in this country longer than we’ve been free. That’s one thing we have to understand. Then you have to understand the nature of slavery. The nature of slavery wasn’t just about physical bondage; it was about psychological warfare. And that psychological warfare does not go away in a generation or two.” — Justin Giboney

Date: April 4, 2018

Event: MLK50 Conference, Memphis, Tennessee

“You can listen to this episode of The Gospel Coalition podcast here or watch a video of the panel.”

GILBONEY AT MLK/50 ON THE PLATFORM

Christian media picked up the story-

https://www.christianpost.com/news/evangelical-trump-opponents-wept-because-global-witness-of-the-church-was-at-stake-erlc-panelist-says.html

“Justin Giboney, a Democratic political strategist and founder of the AND Campaign, explained that he believed that the 20th century Republican Party’s “Southern Strategy” was still harming race relations.

“First perfected by former President Richard Nixon, the Southern Strategy involved appealing to white Southern Democrats, often by expressing opposition to Civil Rights goals while not being overtly racist.”

“I don’t believe that white evangelical leaders, civic leaders, and also politicians, have ever truly divested themselves from the Southern Strategy,” Giboney commented.”

“I think they still believe they need the racists’ support, funding, votes to win. And so as long as they feel they need that to win, it’s going to be hard to come together.”

BUT TGC / ELRC ORGANIZERS OF MLK/50 DID NOT WARN US OF WHAT WAS TO COME JUST A SHORT 18 MONTHS LATER

&CAMPAIGN FOUNDERS

THE LAWYER | THE PASTOR | THE ARTIST

“Amidst the multitude of issues impacting the Church, the arts and the political landscape,  God led a Pastor, an Artist, and a Lawyer to gather a coalition of biblical Christians to engage in their context.  In doing so, the AND Campaign has united with faith leaders and influencers around the country that reflect biblical values and God’s heart for social justice.”

( FROM & CAMPAIGN SOCIAL  MEDIA )

Urban Christians that are bringing new thinking, new engagement and new politics to the sociopolitical landscape.”

“Urban Christians are determined to reassert ourselves into America’s political & cultural arena. We refuse to settle for civic & community engagement that forces us to either neglect our compassion or surrender our convictions. From mass incarceration to the right to life, it’s time to engage in advocacy that better reflects the love & truth of the Gospel.”

“Join Christian thinkers, strategists and artists on Saturday, February 27th, as we map out a path to New Thinking, New Engagement & New Politics. The next movement begins here….The AND Campaign.”

OVERVIEW

https://andcampaign.org/about

“As Christians, we are called to civic and community engagement.  We have a duty to impact culture in a manner that reflects the truth (&) love of Jesus Christ.  This commission includes participation in the political arena, wherein actions or inaction can have a profound effect on all aspects of society.  Life, freedom and the general well-being of all citizens can be significantly enhanced or diminished by political dynamics.”

“Urban Christians have a unique and powerful sociopolitical perspective that is not fully represented by either of the two predominant political ideologies.  It is a Gospel-centered worldview that is committed to redemptive justice (&) values-based policy.  However, we have allowed the urban political class to abandon the latter.”

“A lack of organization and a poorly maintained platform has left us in a situation where we are exploited for votes, but command little policy influence.  Urban Christians must find innovative ways to be critical, yet constructive participants in the marketplace of ideas.  We must rebuild our sociopolitical platform and infrastructure, while demonstrating that our faith is more important than our politics.”

“We do not have the luxury of either focusing on social justice or values-based issues; both affect the foundation of our communities and are inseparably tied together.   A new generation of urban Christians must address today’s dilemmas with courage, kindness and an unshakeable faith.  We must speak truth with compassion (&) conviction.  We must echo the good news in prayer and public witness for the common good.”

WHAT IS REDEMPTIVE JUSTICE?

“Redemptive Justice is justice which has its ends in reconciliation, peace, and flourishing for all parties. The “redemption” is not the spiritual redemption which only Christ could achieve on the Cross, but it does take Christ’s sacrifice as its model of self-giving love of neighbor. This understanding of justice differs from the view which says that justice is the overthrowing of all powers or the leveling of all positions. Rather, it acknowledges that power can be used for good or evil. Just as the Roman authorities used their powers to crucify Christ, but Christ used His power to heal, teach, and lead. Redemptive Justice challenges corrupt use of power and calls all people to use the power God has given them stewardship over for good.”

WHAT ARE CLASSIC VALUES?

“Classic Values are timeless moral codes and beliefs transferred through religious teaching, family, culture and community that have proven to be irreplaceable. ”

& CAMPAIGN CALL TO ACTION 

 

“Be prayerful and vigilant about the issues affecting our nation and your neighbors. When it’s time, answer the call to act together with the AND Campaign coalition. This could be a march or a vote, but it should be informed, strategic, and coordinated. Until then, consider how you can respond to challenges around you with compassion and conviction each day, starting now. When Christians speak together through the AND Campaign, it should be a megaphone for faithfulness already in action, not a surprise about what Christians believe.”

“To educate and organize Christians for civic and cultural engagement that results in better representation, more just and compassionate policies and a healthier political culture.”

 

VISION STATEMENT

“To improve how Christians engage politics and culture and to disrupt America’s sociopolitical arena by asserting the justice and righteousness of Jesus Christ.”

PROGRESSIVE POLITICAL JUSTICE DRIVEN ENGAGEMENT

BROUGHT TO YOU BY  PCAs TIM KELLER /TGC & SBCs RUSSELL MOORE /ERLC  AND THE

& CAMPAIGN – ALL LAUNCHED AT MLK/50

SMOOTH MOVE GUYS BUT YOUR SHORT SKIRT IS IN THE WIND .

Christians who have mistaken TGC and  the ERLC as CONSERVATIVE theological organizations must now face that they are NEITHER . These are political organizations operating within our own churches and denominations . TGC /ERLC  are  community organizing and they are promoting the politics of the Obama administration and Foundation / racial theory and are part of the determined effort to undermine conservative Christians influence in the culture at large and in the election of 2020 and beyond.

 

 

THE RATS NEST :WHITE TGC LEADERS USING RACE,HIP HOP-TO PUSH AGENDA

 

Rev Thomas Littleton                                                                                                     11-2-2019

The Gospel Coalition is collaborating with the Obama Foundation’s “Ambassador to America’s Believers Michael Wear and the radical – SOCIAL JUSTICE racial “& CAMPAIGN”.  The first two stories revealing this bizarre collaboration are linked below. This movement gets even more bizarre as we enter the 2020 election cycle .

The leaders of the Southern Baptist ,along with entities like Desiring God ( Passion Conferences ) and The Gospel Coalition have long used “Christian Hip Hop ” to platform young minorities billed as modern day prophets to the church and attract young white and minority audiences for their  urban church planting strategies . Never mind these SBC/ TGC  leaders look  like the nerdy white boys trying to appear “with it” -“hip”- because in reality Hip Hop culture does not fit with their tightly managed “reformed theologian scholars” image. Still there is a payoff for the “nerdy urds” of SBC/ TGC/ PCA leaders.

Having corralled the urban interest and placed the soundtrack of “Christian Hip Hop ” to the TGC brand of reformed theology and  folded in a HEAVY DOSE  of social justice false gospel – these change agent leaders from two major conservative Christian denominations (the SBC and PCA and others ) are attempting to migrate the young whites , African American and Hispanic minorities right into the “Obama Foundations Ambassador to America’s Believers ” Michael Wear and the “&CAMPAIGN” movement. The  effort is so seamless it goes almost unnoticed .

TGC OLD WHITE BOY LEADERSHIP OPERATE  LIKE SLAVE TRADERS SAILING THEIR JUSTICE GOSPEL SHIP.

Like the slave traders of old, TGC white evangelical leaders have loaded the cargo hold of their neo-reformed justice gospel ship with the souls of a generation and launched for foreign shores to sell them off and sell out their FAITH . Destination ? Securing their target cargo into the Democratic plantations where minorities have long been used and pandered to for votes for decades by people who care nothing about their real  “urban  plight ” or the lives or FAITH of those its slave trade ships have trafficked .

Some of these key TGC  leaders have no doubt learned their skills from the Democratic strategist . Some of the TGC are simply nothing more than Democratic Party/ Obama representatives . While others in  TGC may simply be just practitioners of the world’s oldest profession …and will bed down with anyone for a few dollars.

A HISTORY IN TGC’s ROLE IN “CHRISTIAN HIP HOP”

The Gospel Coalition and John Piper have been major promoters of the Christian Hip Hop scene .

SBC’s NAMB (North American Missions Board) RAPZILLA AND REACH RECORDS  have been at the cutting edge of this neo reformed + Christian Hip Hop  movement as Desiring God and TGC have featured the artist in their events , conferences , and publications for well over a decade .

SBC’S NORTH AMERICAN MISSION BOARD IS A SIGNIFICANT PARTNER

NAMB leader D A Horton is a leader in the &CAMPAIGN. Multiple other & CAMPAIGN  leaders are in the NAMB urban church planting leadership as well as TGC.

https://andcampaign.org/leadership

Horton has a long history in the Christian Hip Hop world working with Reach Records and was once the head of Atlanta based  Reach Records non profit “Reach Life Ministries” . RLM  is now shut down it’s remains converted into use with an urban school .

Reach Records deactivates ReachLife, shifts support to local school

D A Horton is a NAMB Send Network Church planter in Longbeach CA and a long time NAMB/ SEND leader . He is also an ERLC contributor for Russell Moore. ( more on Moore later )

“REBRANDING THE SBC” A PROUD HORTON AND NAMB 

 

D A Horton boasted in a 2016 interview about rebranding of the SBC by (TGC )leaders like Russell Moore- David Platt . Urban Church Planting and Hip Hop culture have played a significant part of the “REBRANDING ”  which Horton is so proud of in the SBC.

Why I Engage in the SBC: D.A. Horton

“Why I engage the SBC”

“To this day I’m often asked, “D.A. why are you still involved with the SBC?” My answer is simple; I walk them through the progress I’ve witnessed regarding my five convictions.”

  1. “Ministry leadership at; the ERLC, NAMB and IMB – Dr. Russell Moore, Kevin Ezell and David Platt have been game changers regarding the rebranding process of the SBC in the eyes of ethnic minorities. Not only have initiatives been created to recruit, train and send qualified minorities on the field for service, key leadership positions with influence and decision making capacities have been extended to competent and qualified emerging minority leaders.”

(FROM JUST GOSPEL 2020 CONFERENCE SITE )

NOTE THE THIRD WAY POLITICS AND ANTI TRUMP FOCUS

About

“No one saw the 2016 presidential election coming. No one predicted the effect the election would have on the country—and the Church. To some extent, our tribalism has been exposed and perhaps deepened. Unity has become more fragile.

In all likelihood, the Church will face the same stark choices and the same potential for misunderstanding, disunity and tribal politics. This time, however, we have an opportunity to approach politics and the election differently… like Christians… like the pilgrims and aliens we are in the world.

The goal of Just Gospel 2020 is NOT to engage in partisan debate or endorse any party’s platform. Nor is our goal to bind the consciences of attendees to a particular policy prescription the Bible does not require. We will not recommend or even comment on any candidate.

The Just Gospel 2020 conference goal is to help Christians think biblically and deeply about being Christians and taking our Christian identity and perspective into our political lives. We hope to aid each other in our discipleship. We are “strangers and exiles on the earth” who “desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one” (Heb. 11:13, 16). We hope to model how Christians who differ in secondary and political matters can nevertheless do so charitably and in a way that preserves both unity and freedom of conscience. We hope to make a difference—for the Church and the country.

We need and want healing conversations that serve the Church We need pilgrim politics that bear witness to Christ and Kingdom to which we are headed. Join us!”
