CAN THE BODY OF CHRIST SIMPLY BE SHIFTED OUT OF WHAT GOD HAS CALLED IT TO BE AND INTO ZUCKERBERG’S VISION OF THE WORLD HE AND OTHERS LIKE HIM WILL LORD OVER?
Rev Thomas Littleton
For over four decades a subversive and seductive influence of outside money, socialist thinking, ego stroking, church paradigm shifting organization called Leadership Network has influenced pastors, church strategies, Christian media and entire movements with little notice from the average Joe. Bob Buford started LeadNet in 1984 to spread the influence and vision of Austrian Economics /management guru Peter Drucker from the corporate world and into the evangelical church . The same type of effort was carried out among Catholics.
Leadership Network gave us the cursed metrics which fueled the Church Growth Movement, Multi Site, Purpose Driven, “Internet Church” as well as leaders like Bill Hybels, Rick Warren, Ed Stetzer and a host of other Drucker indoctrinated thinkers who no longer understood the distinction between the Body of Christ and Corporate strategies and expansion schemes. Success has been measured in head counts and media blitz and the method has been coaching ego driven and ambitious young preachers toward the end game of socialist false Christianity leading congregants primed to become big time volunteers creating “Community” and serving as “giving units” to fuel the Drucker Three Legged Stool vision. The church of the future will be lockstep with globalist and tyrants who see it as a useful tool toward achieving there “great society”.
Drucker’s Frankfurt School influences from his youth have paid off well giving the evangelical church tainted vision SUPERSPREADERS like Tim Keller and Ed Stetzer ,Rick Warren ( and thousands upon thousands more) along with ever more obvious progressive globalist perverversions of the Gospel.Entire seminaries and denominations are now steeped in decades of these errors and blind to how far off the eternal Gospel path they have trodden.

SOME RECENT /PANDEMIC HISTORY OF EVANGELICALS AND FACEBOOK
See how evangelical leaders like the now Defrocked Russell Moore joined Facebook to form “Community ” and set “standards ” and controls on how Christians behaved and spoke on /in social media outlets like facebook even as globalist sought to censor free speech and even Christian witness.
THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST ETHICS AND RELIGIOUS LIBERTIES COMMISSION EVEN RECEIVED FACEBOOK GRANTS TO HELP IMPLEMENT CONTROLS .FREESPEECH STANDARDS/WHILE PROMOTE VACCINES AND HELP LURE CHURCHES INTO THE ZUCKERBERG /GLOBALIST FUTURE .
EXCERPT FROM THE ERLC FACEBOOK GRANT ANNOUNCEMENT
“The project, Thacker said, will help answer such questions as:
- What is the proper role of government in digital governance?
- How do I disciple other people if they’re primarily being shaped by technology in their use and habits?
- How do we champion free speech and religious freedom in an increasingly polarized society?
“The resources to be provided during the next 18 months consist of four major elements, he said: (1) A “state of digital governance report” that will present a portrait of current and future technological issues; (2) an evangelical Christian statement of principles on “content moderation and digital governance;” (3) a church resource kit scheduled to be released in the summer of 2022; and (4) two books to be published next year – “Following Jesus in the Digital Age” and “The Digital Public Square: Ethics and Religion in a Technological Society.” Thacker is writing the former for Broadman & Holman Publishing and editing the latter for B&H Academic.”
“Given the current state of debate over the proper role of free expression and religious freedom and digital governance,” the ERLC believes this is an important area in which to invest, Thacker told the trustees. It will produce “substantive resources” and “seek to equip the church in the digital age and allow us to advocate for these principles in this important arena,” he said.”
NOW ENTER THE METAVERSE MOVEMENT FROM LEADERSHIP NETWORK
4 AREAS OF FOCUS
- METAVERSE DISCIPLE-MAKINGHow will metaverse technologies like VR, AR, mixed reality, and even artificial intelligence help complement the disciple-making process in the metaverse as well as in physical churches?
- METAVERSE MISSION FIELDHow does engaging in metaverse communities like VR’s AltVR, VR Chat, Rec Room, Facebook Horizon, or other avatar-based communities open up a new mission field? The harvest is BIG. The workers?
- METAVERSE CHURCHESHow does a metaverse church follow a biblical ecclesiology? Can a biblical church function in virtual reality? What will augmented reality do to strengthen the mission of the physical church?
- METAVERSE TECHNOLOGIESHow will metaverse technologies like AI, machine learning, and even blockchain and cryptocurrencies, help physical churches and their mission? How will our culture’s move towards decentralization affect the church?
THE WORLD IS CLOSER THAN EVER BEFORE!
Are we opened minded enough to use new ways to reach more people?
“Culturally we’re approaching the Metaverse, the third version of the Internet. The first version, the www, was all about information. The second version, web 2.0, was all about social aspects. The third version, web 3.0, is all about experiences.”
“As culture begins to adopt the Metaverse, we the church need to begin to explore our role in these new technological advancements. We must understand the Metaverse experience.”
“As the Metaverse continues to expand… Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Crypto… we should be looking at these technologies as opportunities to advance the Kingdom, not in the spirit of fear.”
“So, let’s explore how the Metaverse can expand our view of Disciple-making, create new opportunities in the Metaverse Mission Field, and multiply ecclesiologically stable Metaverse Churches.”
NOTHING COULD BE FARTHER FROM THE GOSPEL THAN TO MOVE THE BODY OF CHRIST TOWARD GLOBALIST VIRTUAL VISION
WHY? The reasons are many but the most simple and easily understood is the motivations and controls sought by those who own this emerging virtual world and what their vision for CONTROL limiting the function of the church and ability of believers to speak truth and BE SALT AND LIGHT in a world entering its darkest hour.
God is not calling the church to build the METAVERSE or rebuild the Tower of Bael.Instead He is calling her to come OUT of before it is judged by Him.
The Fall of Babylon the Great
18 After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. 2 And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! 3 For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”
4 And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. 5 For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. 6 Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. 7 In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’
