EVANGELICAL CARPETBAGGERS IN CHRISTIAN EDUCATION


IF IT IS TRUE THAT BELIEVERS LOST WHAT PROGRESSIVE EVANGELICALS DUBBED “THE CULTURE WAR” -THEN THESE JUSTICE WARRIORS AND THEIR SECULAR PARTNERS ARE HERE TO SIEZE THE SPOILS: OUR CHILDREN

Rev.Thomas Littleton 11/1/2020

Virtually everyday some parent contacts this writer with concerns about what they see happening in their children’s Christian Schools. Christian teens are coming home defending radical social movements like BLM and LGBTQ and complaining to their parents that they have been raised in “White Privilege ” and Systemic Racism”. Some students are singing the virtues of Islam and defending the rights of Muslim Refugees and Mosque building in the U. S. saying real Christians should support these “justice issues” because they are at the “heart of the gospel”.

How are these narratives infiltrating Christian Education ? The answer is two fold. Some are coming from without by secular partners Christian schools have either wittingly or ignorantly taken in through funding and online partnerships .The other is coming from within the church through curriculum, videos, and media materials from the VERY epicenter of the social justice false gospel machines like The Gospel Coalition and it’s stable of justice warriors.

THIS ARTICLE IS A FOLLOW UP OF SOME PREVIOUS EFFORTS TO CENTRALIZE CHRISTIAN EDUCATION BY TGC LEADERS IN AN ORGANIZATION CALLED IACE.

RIGHT NOW MEDIA- JUSTICE VIDEOS

Right Now Media is one prime source of the inside infiltration impacting pastors, educators, and students. Meanwhile your Christian Schools on line service has likely provided access to justice driven organizations seeking to “create a better world ” by data mining and brainwashing a generation of Children in Faith Based /Christian Schools .

ALTHOUGH MORE SUBTLE AT THE MOMENT, THE LIFEWAY PRODUCT “THE GOSPEL PROJECT” CONTAINS MANY OF THE SAME TGC JUSTICE WARRIORS IN IT’S BRAIN TRUST.

CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS AND DAY CARES ,AS WELL ARE CHURCHES ARE USING IT.

THE JUSTICE DRIVEN DATA MINERS IN CHRISTIAN EDUCATION

A Christian couple from North Alabama, like many parents around the country, had begun to investigate the Christian Schools where their children are enrolled. This was after they began seeing some of the same indicators of the infiltration.

The parents, along with this writer, began to research the issue and these are the shocking results of how a “Change Agent” globalist secular organization has infiltrated many Christian School and is able to gather data on and score students, families and faculty in Christian Schools across the nation.. It is as simple as looking at the on line service the schools have chosen .

In the North Alabama case this is the school and how the infiltration of CARPETBAGGERS has taken place:

COVENANT CHRISTIAN SCHOOL​

https://www.ccseagles.com/

“Our aim is to provide an environment of Christian academic excellence that will enable our students to develop a Biblical world and life view.”

COVENANT’S APPROACH

“Covenant Christian School serves K-3-12th grade. The Covenant family comes from more than 60 churches throughout the Shoals. It exists to sow truth and light into the lives of its students and prepare them for life. Covenant was founded to reinforce the teaching of Christian parents and churches in leading their children to know God and evaluate all knowledge and life by God’s truth. 

“With a standard of academic excellence, attention is focused on development of the whole child–spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical.”

WHETHER OF NOT THE SCHOOL IS FULLY AWARE OF IT- THE ACADEMIC BAR “DROP DOWN” SHOWS THE MISTAKE MANY CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS HAVE MADE .

THE DROP DOWN UNDER “ACADEMICS” SHOWS THE USE OF RENWEB AS ONLINE SERVICES PROVIDER.

“RenWeb Learning Management features a simple user interface that allows teachers and students to interact within Class Chat, an instant messaging service and a social media-style course discussion board. Teachers can organize class content into units and topics that include announcements, assignments, discussion threads, quizzes, tests, and more. Most importantly, a teacher’s course, roster and gradebook data will seamlessly flow back and forth between RenWeb Learning Management and the My Classroom area of the RenWeb SIS—a level of integration that is unmatched in the marketplace today.”

“Our native LMS platform combines the key elements of classroom collaboration, blended learning instruction, and full SIS integration,” DeeAnn Wenger, President of FACTS, said. “Today’s competitive private school environment and the desire for edtech in the classroom demands an effective, user-friendly LMS solution. We believe RenWeb Learning Management will not only meet customer expectations, but will surpass them.”

BLACKBAUDS COMMITTMENT TO UNITED NATIONS GLOBAL SUSTAINABILITY GOALS/ AGENDA 2030

https://www.blackbaud.com/newsroom/article/2018/09/21/blackbaud-s-cmo-catherine-lacour-reflects-on-blackbaud-s-sustainable-development-goals-commitments

“As I look ahead to UN Week and the bustle of activity it brings as world leaders, diplomats, business leaders, nonprofit organizations and others together to discuss the world’s most pressing problems, it’s also a great time to pause and take pride in what Blackbaud has been able to contribute in the last two years since we first made our commitment at the 2016 UN Private Sector Forum in support of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), 17 interconnected global goals adopted by 193 member states during UN Week 2015 that address various global challenges. We were honored to participate in the Private Sector Forum, which brings together CEOs, Heads of State and Government, and leaders from the UN and civil society each year to address global challenges, and I look forward to representing Blackbaud at this year’s Forum. ” 

“In support of SDG 17 (Partnership for the Goals), at the 2016 Forum we pledged to “map over 35,000 customers and partners, trends in giving and collaborative ways to increase innovative investment to grow the social economy in order to develop an ‘ecosystem of good’ framework for normalizing and explaining the SDGs in the U.S.” Since that time, Blackbaud has made great strides toward achieving that commitment, both through its position as a natural convener in the social good community and through our technology solutions.”   

Progressing the SDGs Through Thought Leadership
“As head of the Blackbaud Institute for Philanthropic Impact, I could not be prouder of the work my team has done to release leading-edge research and insight that accelerates the impact of the social good community. These publications help inform organizations in how they can be more effective, allowing them to do even more. From our annual npEXPERTS series, which brings philanthropic leaders together, delivering actionable insight and perspectives on pressing topics in social good, to our Next Generation of Giving research series that uncovers how organizations across the globe can better connect with supporters of all generations, to resources like our Financial Management Toolkit, which provides step-by-step guidance on how nonprofit finance and development departments can drive greater mission impact by working together as true strategic partners, the Blackbaud Institute is helping to drive the social good community forward and accomplish more good that supports all aspects of the SDGs. “

“Looking back on all we’ve accomplished so far has made me even more excited for the week to come. We’re not done yet, and I look forward to meeting with colleagues from across the social good community at events like Global Citizen Movement Makers, the Goalkeepers Summit and others to further explore how we can work together to advance the SDGs in meaningful ways through future partnership, convenings, research and technology innovations. “

BESIDES THE SOCIAL JUSTICE AND GLOBAL SUSTAINABILITY DRIVEN DATA INTEL- THERE ARE OTHER CONCERNS

BLACKBAUD WAS THE TARGET OF A SUCCESSFUL CYBER ATTACK WHERE IT’S CLIENTS INFORMATION WAS COMPROMISED .

THE COMPANY WAS LESS THAN FORTHRIGHT ACCORDING TO REPORTS

Cyber attack

“In May 2020, Blackbaud fell victim to a cyber attack. Customer data was stolen and Blackbaud paid the criminals a ransom in exchange for “credible confirmation” that the stolen data was deleted.[31] Customers who were affected include at least twenty universities and charities based in the United Kingdom, the United States, the Netherlands and Canada.[32][33][34] Blackbaud externally disclosed the incident in July 2020,[35] weeks after the company learned about the attack. Blackbaud received criticism for paying the hackers’ ransom and its delay in disclosing the attack, as large data breaches must be reported to data authorities within 72 hours of learning about an incident under European General Data Protection Regulations.[36] In a September 29, 2020 Form 8-K filing, Blackbaud CFO Tony Boor admitted, contrary to earlier claims, that customer “bank account information, social security numbers, usernames and/or passwords” were compromised.”

CONCLUSION

Your children IN CHRISTIAN EDUCATION are getting exposure to the social justice false gospel of The Gospel Coalition and many of its trained change agents via carefully crafted and packaged Christian media like these “justice ” videos of Right Now Media aimed at Christian Schools. Who knows how deeply other curriculums and resources are infiltrated?

THESE ARE THE CONCERNS COMING FROM WITHIN.

But perhaps an even greater unseen threat has become deeply imbedded into Christian education via the service provider for your online portal. In the case of RenWeb / FACTS just one layer into the company which provides online registration, testing, teacher evaluation, tuition collection, centralized communications including parent to teacher relations and teacher to students relations…lies a FULL ON SOCIAL JUSTICE “INDIVIDUAL SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY ” /CHANGE AGENT GLOBAL ACTIVIST COMPANY. Blackbaud waste no time in making its capacities and intentions known.

The sad fact is that these organizations, though working with the Christian School market, are clearly not Christian and do not share our vision or goals for Christian education. The average parent enrolling children in a Christian School has zero idea that these organizations are involved just one layer into the mix in Christian education. Schools may be singed on for no other reason than to ease their own responsibilities but in the same way many are already compromised by taking government and corporate funding – the access to students and families by online services and portals SERIOUSLY ENDANGER THE STUDENTS, THE FAMILES, AND THE FACULTY inside Christian Schools. Add to that- the dangers of cyber attacks like the May 2020 event and the overtly social justice driven false gospel from Evangelical Carpetbagger Partners- living and learning inside Christian education is a dangerous world indeed.

Buyer BEWARE- YOU LIKELY ARE NOT GETTING WHAT YOU ARE PAYING FOR…A “CHRISTIAN EDUCATION”…. AFTER ALL.

ALREADY WE HAVE SEEN UNDISCERNING LEADERS IN MISSIONS ORGANIZATIONS TARGETING OR ALLOWING YOUR CHILDREN TO BE TARGETED FOR RECRUITMENT

PROVERBS 22

Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.

The rich rules over the poor,
And the borrower is servant to the lender.

He who sows iniquity will reap sorrow,
And the rod of his anger will fail…

Sayings of the Wise

17 Incline your ear and hear the words of the wise,
And apply your heart to my knowledge;
18 For it is a pleasant thing if you keep them within you;
Let them all be fixed upon your lips,
19 So that your trust may be in the Lord;
I have instructed you today, even you.
20 Have I not written to you excellent things
Of counsels and knowledge,
21 That I may make you know the certainty of the words of truth,
That you may answer words of truth
To those who send to you?

WITH THE WORD OF GOD IN HAND AND KEEPING THE CARPETBAGGERS OUT -CHRISTIAN EDUCATION SHOULD NOT BE SO DIFFICULT.
