“DAVOS FOR CHRISTIANS” FAITH DRIVEN INVESTING OR JUSTICE DRIVEN DECEPTION?

FAITH DRIVEN INVESTORS IS A COLLABORATIVE OF CHRISTIAN FINACIAL ORGANIZATIONS WHO ESPOUSE INVESTING 100% OF GOD’S RESOURCES YOU STEWARD INTO THE KINGDOM. BUT WHERE IS THE THE KINGDOM OF GOD IN THE VISION OF DAVOS / WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM / DIGITAL CURRENCY / AGENDA 2030 AND RABID SOCIAL JUSTICE DRIVEN GLOBALISM?

Rev Thomas Littleton

3-14-2022

Nothing has alarmed the people of the entire world MORE than the disturbing controls and power grabs related to the economic ,societal impacts and frightening losses of personal freedom resulting from the Pandemic of 2020. In case you only want complicit media check out social media post from Europe, Canada , Australia , Asia ,Latin America and cities across the US and see that even young millennials indoctrinated and drowning in socialism have taken to the streets in mass to protest for their freedom from the grip of globalist .

OPPRESSION IN THE MORNING JUSTICE FIRES BY NIGHT

As the world’s populations were forced to lock themselves in their homes, social distance, mask their faces, keep their kids out of schools ,cancel Christmas and other family holiday gatherings, funerals, weddings and anything resembling normal life- the reality emerged that a small group of billionaires and financial powerbrokers making up the World Economic Forum and its annual meeting in Davos Switzerland had been planning and dreaming …wishing and hoping for just such a Pandemic to provide the perfect catalyst for their global seizure /power grab. And now they finally had it firmly in hand. THEN THEY LIT THE FIRES OF JUSTICE .

JUSTICE RISING AS THE LOCKDOWNS CONTINUED BLM SETS THE WORLS ON FIRE

Yet as “lockdowns and oppression continued then the same forces and funding helped the world burst into flames after the death of George Floyd and promotion of the radical the Black Lives Matter Movement swept the globe. The Pandemic and it’s media blitz turned to massive public memorial services and protest marches with no concerns for spreading the Pandemic .The marches quickly gave way to violence and flames.

To the politicians, preachers and city leaders who took to the streets with BLM -the fears of the virus seemed to go away as the cry for justice rang out.

DO NOT THINK THIS WAS HAPPNENSTANCE

For the average Jane and Joe watching the sudden shift from fear to activism was confusing enough. It was hard to fathom the mindless support of the RIOTS DESPITE potential spread of the Virus .Then came utter lawlessness ,calls for defunding police feeding the global media circus of both the Pandemic and BLM,The citizens of the nations began to doubt the narratives of their leaders and question the obvious opportunism and Delusions of Grandeur of globalist as players like WEF, Gates, Soros, Klaus Schwab and Davos emerged to own the day. Why had these people planning well in advance to seize upon the opportunity provided by the prediction of a global pandemic to make their economic and justice power grab? Remember Event 201? This is the reason many began to call the global events and controls a “Plannedemic “.

DON’T FORGET WHERE THE SELF IMPORTANT PREACHERS PLACED THEMSELVES!

AT THE FRONT OF THE PARADES FOR BOTH THE PANDEMIC AND THE PROTEST.

Self made icon evangelicals like Ed Stetzer took to the streets with BLM after having led the narrative for the church on the pandemic responses. So Covid and Christian justice go hand in hand .

WORLD ECONOMIC FORUMS BIG “POST COVID IDEAS”

SHAPING THE POST COVID PANDEMIC ERA

“The idea that we need to rebuild differently after COVID-19 is widely shared. The window for action is open and Shapers responded”

“In the post-pandemic era, a prosperous future demands a new and ambitious culture of leadership. One that is inclusive, transparent and accountable, and that proactively seeks to raise standards of justice, equity and sustainability”

SO JUSTICE RISING IS THE REAL AGENDA?

WEARISOME PHRASES NOW DOMINATE THE WORLD AND THE CHURCH

HERE IS WHAT IS NOW ON THE TABLE

GLOBAL JUSTICE

ECONOMIC JUSTICE

DISTRIBUTIVE JUSTICE (WHO GETS WHAT )

PROCEDURAL JUTICE

RETRIBUTIVE JUSTICE

RESTORATIVE JUSTICE

INTERSECTIONAL JUSTICE

PICK ONE AND RUN WITH IT ? OR COLLABORATE WITH THE WHOLE

ENTER “THE DAVOS FOR CHRISTIAN LEADERS/CHRISTIAN ECONOMIC FORUM

The Christian financial industry look to have chosen economic and distributive justice along with direct inspiration and partnering with World Economic Forum people and ideology and global players like BlackRock INC. to move the market of Christian investing toward United Nations Global Sustainable Development Goals. They even a herd of well know preachers as pitch men at the front of their own parade.

Crown Financial -a leader in the Christian financial world led by Chuck Bentley has been inspired to found a movement following in the wake of Davos and WEF and Global Justice

IS THIS STOCKHOLM ( OR DAVOS ) SYNDROME OF JUST WRECKLESS IGNORANCE?

FIRST ARTICLE ON THESE CONCERNS

NOTES FROM -INTERVIEW ON THE FOUNDING OF “CHRISTIAN ECONOIMIC FORUM”

https://www.faithdriveninvestor.org/podcast-inventory/episode-27-chuck-bentley

“Every once in awhile, we get to have conversations with living legends. Today is one of those days. If you’ve been around the faith driven conversation, you’ve most likely heard the name, Chuck Bentley. “

“Chuck is the CEO of Crown Ministries, as well as the Founder and Executive Director of the Christian Economic Forum. His fingerprints are all over the Faith Driven Investor and Entrepreneur websites, and today’s episode is a reminder of why. “

“He’s been a faithful steward of this conversation, he freely shares his wisdom born out of experience, and our conversation with him today is one you’ll enjoy…”

NOTES- FROM THE INTERVIEW

Chuck Bentley  is being interviewed by Henry Kaestner co-founder of Faith Driven Investor . “Stewardship is big deal” is a central part of the agreed upon narrative.

NOTE: Stewardship is a way of reminding you that your possessions are not your own but Gods entrusted to you . Fine but let the steward decide when and where to use what they are entrusted with rather than the outsiders like politicians or in this case perhaps the “Great Reset ” driven investment firm ?

“Money flows toward trust like water goes down hill” is Bentley’s mantra BUT isn’t it fair to ask “how can Christians trust The Great Reset” or BlackRock , Agenda 2030 or World Economic Forum with God’s resources entrusted to them? What about the basis of “trust” for Faith Driven financial firms who subscribe to and openly espouse the same global justice mantra as WEF?

Chuck Bentley and Kaestner believe CEF really good and really helpful and discuss the “founding of Davos for Christian Believers”.

HOW DID CHRISTIAN ECONOMIC FORUM/DAVOD FOR CHRISTIAN LEADERS COME ABOUT ?

Henry Kaestner: ” So tell us about the Christian Economic Forum. It was born out of much of the work that you’d seen happen with Crown and people that had been gathered around. But tell us how it started. Tell us about the work and how it’s grown and why I think it’s so cool.”

Chuck Bentley: “One of the things that happened to me as I was traveling the world opening crown offices, that was my job for many years. So I’ve been to every continent except the cold ones, except the ones where they’re covered in tundra. And we were starting offices and the people that would greet me at the airport were invariably the top Christian leaders in those countries. And I could just go around the world and just point out who’s who of people who were the best Christian investors, the best Christian entrepreneurs, the best Christian stewards in their country”….” The idea came when I was standing in the airport with my wife in Zurich, Switzerland, leaving a meeting where I’d met some of these great Christian leaders. The world was coming in to go to Davos, but I thought, we need something on par with that. That’s got the same professionalism, but allows people with the Christian world view to really share their hearts where they’re not going to be asked for money. They’re not going to be given a job to do, but they’re going to be able to share their knowledge and wisdom with other people. So that’s how we got started.”

CHUCK BENTLY BOAST OF HIS FREINDSHIP AND KINSHIP WITH A CHIEF CHINESE ECONOMIST IN – WEF”STORIES”

Chuck Bentley: “Well, I’ve got lots of favorite stories, Henry. One of them is the fact that the top Christian economist inside of China is a part of our forum. He was an atheist, sent to the United States to study the reason for our prosperity. He did an academic study. All of his research went back to China at the risk of his own life. And as an atheist said, I’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is I’ve discovered the secret of why America is more prosperous in China. The bad news is you’re not going to like the answer. Christianity. And he documented the fact that the Judeo-Christian ethic, the values and the operating principles of God’s economy are what accelerated us ahead of the rest of the world. And he defended that in a white paper that was read by 100 hundred million people at the risk of his own life. And through that research, he came to faith in Christ. And when I read the paper, I read it in The Wall Street Journal. And I said, you know, this guy is a kindred spirit with me. I believe that is the solution to the world’s economic problems is to know God’s principles. And so through a series of really miraculous events in my life, I ended up sitting at a conference next to the author of that whitepaper. We had never been introduced. And there we were side by side. I didn’t speak Chinese and he didn’t speak English. But through a translator, we met each other. And that began a lifelong friendship of two people who believe that we need to perpetuate the advancement of God’s financial principles to the whole world. And so he became somewhat of a partner, a silent partner in this endeavor. And he continues to help us to grow the forum and to spread that truth to every nation that we possibly can. That’s just one of them, Henry. Tell me your favorite story and that will stimulate some more of mine.”

REBUILDING THE TOWER OF BABEL …FOR THE RIGHT REASONS ?

MOST OUTLANDISH THOUGHT? DE -TOWER OF BABLE REBUILDING THE TOWER FOR THE RIGHT REASONS ?

Chuck Bentley: Well, I think a couple of things. I hope that there’s more collaboration. I’d really appreciate some of the terminology that you and Luke have introduced to the movement to try to thank you. Say to try to de-tower of Babel this thing is it.

Henry Kaestner: It is. And for our listeners, we’ve got the video going right now. And so Chuck can see this picture of the Tower of Babel is behind me on my wall. I continue to be fascinated by what does it look like when the body of Christ comes together to build something not for their glory, but for God’s glory? And how special might that be if, you know, Brueghel’s painting, you know, the intricacy and the detail and the scope of this tower that they are building that, of course, was doomed for failure because there are building for the wrong reasons. But Chuck is talking to of course is what does it look like for a bunch of us to come together.”

DID HE REALLY SAY THAT ?

YES HE DID- YES THEY DID – AND SEEM TO THINK IT IS ALL A GOOD AND MARKETABLE IDEA.

THEOS THINK TANK OF THE UK BOAST THAT THE “GREAT RESET NEEDS A THEOLOGY”

“Why the ‘Great Reset’ needs theology”

“Whilst the World Economic Forum’s own promo video recognises the need to engage its detractors and bring a more diverse group of individuals to the conversation, in an era of mistrust of elites we might do well to look elsewhere altogether. Perhaps this is the opportunity for a great reset not only in our systems, but also in our sources of wisdom.”

“Christian ethicist and theologian Cynthia Moe–Lobeda writes that,”

When something new is required of humankind, something new is required of Earth’s longstanding faith traditions, primary sources of moral wisdom and moral courage.’[3]

“Often our discussions of the role of faith groups in a crisis are too economistic, conflating their importance with the practical value they demonstrate in food banks and the like. But the cultural and intellectual capital of religious traditions matters even for those who do not share its metaphysical premises. Theology offers a valuable moral and spiritual anchor for a world in crisis.”

” Perhaps uniquely, the social doctrine expressed in papal encyclicals is equally critical of both left– and right–wing ideologies and thus offers the hope of a non–partisan challenge to unconstrained inequality. In this vein, our current Theos work on inequality, drawing on last year’s Bridging the Gap, seeks to explore and articulate what Christian theology in particular can contribute to the dialogue about economic inequality.”

CHRISTIAN ECONIMIC FORUM -AS A “DAVOS FOR CHRISTIAN LEADERS” LOOKS TO BE PREPARED TO NOT ONLY HELP IN BRINGING CHRISTIAN THEOLOGY BUT ALSO CHRISTIAN “INVESTMENT ” TO THE TUNE OF A POTENTIAL $150 TRILLION (WITH A T ) TO THE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUMS TABLE FOR “THE GREAT RESET”.

-SEE BELOW- ZERO DOUBT IS LEFT ABOUT THE “THEOLOGY ” OF SOCIAL JUSTICE AS A CORE ELEMENT OF CHRISTIAN ECONOMIC FORUM AND “FAITH DRIVEN INVESTOR” COLLABORATIVE

CHRISTIAN ECONIMIC FORUM’S BRANDING A “NEW VISION FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE” VIA NY TIMES ARTICLE DAVID BROOKS AND WHEATON ACTIVIST

Follow carefully the nuanced NYT article branded by “faith driven Investors on social media April 2021

(NOTE: Christian economic Forum promoted a NYT piece by David Brooks in which he highlighted a social justice warrior /activist professor of NT from Wheaton. He is pictured in the post above on Faith Driven Investor social media branded with their logo.

THE NUANCE IN THE POST IS SHOCKING

THE FAITH DRIVEN INVESTOR POST LEAVES OUT THE SUBTITLE

THE FAITH DRIVEN INVESTOR POST :

“A CHRISITAN VISION FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE “

by The New York Times

“Like a lot of people, I’ve tried to envision a way to promote social change that doesn’t involve destroying people’s careers over a bad tweet, that doesn’t reduce people to simplistic labels, that is more about a positive agenda to redistribute power to the marginalized than it is about simply blotting out the unworthy. I’m groping for a social justice movement, in other words, that would be anti-oppression and without the dehumanizing cruelty we’ve seen of late.”

“I tried to write a column describing what that might look like — and failed. It wasn’t clear in my head.”

THE NEW YORK TIMES, BROOKS HEADLINE SUBTITLE WHICH IS LEFT OFF AT FAITH DRIVEN INVESTOR “CHRISTIAN ECONOMIC FORUM POST.

NOTE- David Brooks has proven himself a rabid critic of Biblical Conservative Christians and is a close associate of “Shamer in Chief ” /defrocked “Baptist ethicist ” Russell Moore . Brooks most recent piece on evangelicals seeks to “Save Them From Themselves ” in a condescending rant .

SAMPLE OF BROOKS RECENT RANT SHOWS HE IS NO FRIEND OF CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVES TO SPEAK FOR THEM

“Think of your 12 closest friends. These are the people you vacation with, talk about your problems with, do life with in the most intimate and meaningful ways. Now imagine if six of those people suddenly took a political or public position you found utterly vile. Now imagine learning that those six people think that your position is utterly vile. You would suddenly realize that the people you thought you knew best and cared about most had actually been total strangers all along. You would feel disoriented, disturbed, unmoored. Your life would change.”

“This is what has happened over the past six years to millions of American Christians, especially evangelicals. There have been three big issues that have profoundly divided them: the white evangelical embrace of Donald Trump, sex abuse scandals in evangelical churches and parachurch organizations, and attitudes about race relations, especially after the killing of George Floyd.”

NOW BACK TO THE NEW YORK TIMES PIECE BY BROOKS OF THE NEW VISION FOR CHRISTIAN SOCIAL JUSTICE INCLUDING THE SUBTITLE.

AGAIN WHY DID FAITH DRIVEN INVESTORS LEAVE IT OUT ?

OPINION

DAVID BROOKS

The Dissenters Trying to Save Evangelicalism From Itself

Faith Drivan Investors chose Brooks and New York Times along with quotes from a racial justice activist professor from Wheaton to communicate Faith Driven Investor collaborative with Christian Economic Foums vision of Social Justice . IT is totally articulated as wealth and power redistribution .

WANT TO “INVEST ” in wealth redistribution? Seems an oxymoron or a bad joke.

A Christian Vision of Social Justice

Social change can be pursued with mercy and hope.

March 18, 2021

Social Change is not the narrative to try and market to conservative believers you want to lure into “investing”.

DEFINITION OF SOCIAL CHANGE- IT IS NEITHER BY THE GOSPEL FOR THE GOSPEL OR TOWARD THE GOSPEL- “Sociologists define social change as changes in human interactions and relationships that transform cultural and social institutions. These changes occur over time and often have profound and long-term consequences for society.”

FROM BROOKS NYT ARTICLE

“But this week I interviewed Esau McCaulley (activist professor pictured) a New Testament professor at Wheaton College and a contributing writer for New York Times Opinion. He described a distinctly Christian vision of social justice I found riveting and a little strange (in a good way) and important for everybody to hear, Christian and non-Christian, believer and nonbeliever.”

LET US HEAR THE END GOAL OF THE NYT BRAND OF “CHRISTIAN SOCIAL JUSTICE ” THE CHRISTIAN ECONOMIC FORUM GUYS AT FAITH DRIVEN INVESTOR ARE TOUTING .

In Brooks on words.= REPARATIONS FOR RACISM- DISEMPOWERMENT -AGAIN AND AGAIN.

“The concept of sin gives us an action plan to struggle against it: acknowledge the sin, confess the sin, ask forgiveness for the sin, turn away from the sin, restore the wrong done. If racism is America’s collective sin then the tasks are: tell the truth about racism, turn away from racism, offer reparations for racism.”

“That is the ethic of self-emptying love — neither revile the reviler nor allow him to stay in his sin. The Christian approach to power is to tell those with power to give it up for the sake of those who lack.”

” It has to come with justice and change: “Why is Black forgiveness required again and again? Why is forgiveness heard but the demand for justice ignored?”

“When the church is at its best it opens up to the possibility of change, to begin again.”

“But, as McCaulley writes in his book “Reading While Black,” “the Old and New Testaments have a message of salvation, liberation and reconciliation.”

TIM KELLER ,DAVID PLATT & J D GREEAR ARE PITCHING THE FAITH DRIVEN INVESTOR TO INVESTORS AS KELLER TGC/THE GOSPEL COALITION NUANCES CONCERNS OVER THE “GREAT RESET”.

https://www.faithdriveninvestor.org/

Former Southern Baptist President J D Greear and influential Presbyterian Tim Keller yuk it up.

In March 2020 as concerns about “the Great Reset” began to creep into the mainstream- Tim Keller’s “GOSPEL COALITION rolled out an article to speak to those concerns .

Five Questions Christians Should ask about The ‘Great Reset’

03/12/2020  |  CHRIS WATKIN

WHO AUTHORED THE TGC ARTICLE?

AN AUSTRAILIAN WHOSE WORKS INCLUDES SETTING UP THE “SOCIAL CONTRACT ” FOR AUSTRAILIA .

“Chris Watkin grew up in Yorkshire and now lives in Melbourne with his wife and family. He is an Australian Research Council Future Fellow in the Arts Faculty at Monash University where he leads a research project into the contemporary social contract. In addition to publishing academic articles and books in French philosophy he seeks to bring philosophy and theology into conversation in volumes like Thinking Through Creation: Genesis 1 and 2 as Tools of Cultural Critique, and theological explorations of DerridaFoucault and Deleuze in the P&R ‘Great Thinkers’ series. He keeps a blog about theology, philosophy and culture at thinkingthroughthebible.com

“Social Contract Research Network”

“Addressing theoretical and practical questions related to the contemporary social contract to foster more resilient, freer and fairer societies.”

“The Social Contract Research Network (SCRN) is an interdisciplinary research hub located in the Faculty of Arts at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.”

THE TGC ARTICLES CONCLUSION:

“in a few years’ time, the ‘Great Reset’ brand will most likely become a curiosity for the history books. But the questions of how to build a just, sustainable and digitally fair society for all people will not. So let’s play the long game and engage with those issues, nudging the public debate where possible towards a biblical understanding of what is at stake in rewriting the social contract.”

SOCIAL CONTRACT DEFINED -“Social contract theory says that people live together in society in accordance with an agreement that establishes moral and political rules of behavior. Some people believe that if we live according to a social contract, we can live morally by our own choice and not because a divine being requires it.”

CONCLUSION

World Economic Forum wants to accomplish the Global Sustainability Goals ” which include The Great Reset and Agenda 2030. It wants to use Global Warming/ aka Climate Change to apply continued pressure to the global economy it helped weaken with Covid 19 responses. These were undeniably planned out in October 2019 exercise called “Event 201 Pandemic EXERCISE” response protocols.

Working with BlackRock and the driving of secular investments toward “Global Justice ” and a new global “Social Contract” -the WEF does not have a “Faith Driven” set of goals nor are their stated goals akin to the Great Commission and yet WEF and the mirror image Christian Economic Forum are being merged by the Christian financial industry and major players in this “space” as they like to say. Impossible ? YES- Why?

Impossible because of two distinct ignored realities in the Faith Driven Investor narrative.

FIRST GREED and LUST and PRIDE drive globalist who hate GOD and Christians and would be MORE THAN GLAD to exploit God’s resources entrusted to HIS people if some willing partner were there to deliver them up.

SECOND THE GLOBALIST goals are not only godless but actual evil does exist and runs lockstep with the prevailing anti-Christ spirit of the age. Globalism filled with the rot of corruption and such corruption cannot inherit incorruption and flesh cannot inherit or for that matter help envision or construct God’s INCORRUPTABLE Kingdom on the earth or aid in God’s Kingdom Come.

AGAIN it appears that it would take a special kind of delusion or RECKLESS INGNORANCE- DARE WE SAY STUPIDITY – and biblical ignorance to even think these two worlds can merge.

PSALM 2

The Messiah’s Triumph and Kingdom

Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed,[d] saying,
“Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”

He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:
“Yet I have set My King
On My holy hill of Zion.”

“I will declare the decree:
The Lord has said to Me,
‘You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.
Ask of Me, and I will give You
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.
You shall break them with a rod of iron;
You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’ ”

10 Now therefore, be wise, O kings;
Be instructed, you judges of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear,
And rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest [j]He be angry,
And you perish in the way,
When His wrath is kindled but a little.
Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him
