RTS/CRU/TIM KELLER INSPIRED /KERN FAMILY FOUNDATION FUNDED POLIS INSTITUTE OPENLY EMBRACES U N GLOBAL GOALS.

AN UPDATE FROM THE EVANGELICAL DEEP STATE- BRAZEN INDOCTRINATION OF YOUR CHILDREN FOR GLOBALIST IN THE NAME OF “CHRISTIAN EDUCATION”.

Rev Thomas Littleton

8-19-2022

Tim Keller is a globalist and of course so is his ministry focus called City to City. Even to the untrained eye and uninformed soul -it is obvious that his concepts of “human flourishing” and “redeeming culture” and planting his brand of churches across global cities goes way beyond any conservative biblical interpretations and into the realm of fitting the church for global citizenry.

The much lauded intellectual/ christian thinker Keller also has few original thoughts but is able to make himself appear contemplative as he discusses talking points like “The Theology of Cities ” or “Human Flourishing” but these concepts come from a larger deceptive influence which has spent over a decade sweeping through reformed (and other) seminaries, Christian literature, curriculum and media and missions organizations. MUCH of this language and terminology have come from think tanks like Keller’s favorite the “Institute for ADvanced Studies in Culture ” (IASC) at the University of Virginia .

As Critical Theories / CRT/ Intersectionality and the false social justice gospel manifest like a demonic hoard across evangelical Christianity by 2018, the Frankfurt School inspired poisons and tools of the trade for Cultural Marxism had been the inspirational seeds of Keller’s friends at IASC.

IASC FROM ITS “ABOUT “PAGE PRIOR TO BEING EXPOSED

“From its inception in 1994, the Institute has had three central objectives. These are 1) Scholarship: to develop and offer the highest level of scholarship on the most important questions of the contemporary world; 2) Formation: to train, mentor, credential, and place—in colleges, universities, foundations, and think tanks—a generation of young scholars who will carry this task into the future; and 3) Outreach: to offer this knowledge in service to the common good. All of these we pursue in service of a larger ambition—to create the conditions conducive to an alternative school of thought in the humanities and social sciences and to carry it into practice in the academy and in the wider world. We exist, then, to challenge the scholasticism, nihilism, and politicization that mark so much of the academic world and to contribute a school of thought that affirms the possibility of a humane alternative to the dominant cultural currents of our historical moment. Our institutional inspiration comes from the close-knit intellectual fellowships of the past (such as the Frankfurt School and the Vienna Circle); our philosophical inspiration comes from a thoughtful re-appropriation of the theologies and classical philosophies which characteristically champion the dignity of the person, the pursuit of the just life, and the flourishing of the human community”

TIM KELLER’S WORK WITH IASC PROJECT CALLED “POLIS INSTITUTE” AT ORLANDO’S REFORMED THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY PARTNERING WITH CRU.

RTS is headed by Tim Keller friend / The Gospel Coalition leadership partner Ligon Duncan who boast that he “don’t groove with no Cultural Marxism ” yet his RTS institution is steep in IACE project Polis Institute and the social justice driven Kern funding.

Kern Family Foundation and its oversight organization Oikonomia Network have flooded funding into once conservative seminaries like RTS since 2009. The primary behind the scenes entity in the evangelical community to embrace the UN Global Goals OPENLY has been Lausanne Movement of which Tim Keller and other globalism compromised leaders like Rick Warren and Ed Stetzer are a part.

Lausanne and the Frankfurt School inspired IASC produced the “CIVILITAS” Covenant documents together with Warren and Keller endorsement urging “Third Way” compromise and “CIVILITY” among Christians as progressive globalist invaded and infiltrated every aspect of Christian faith and life and Christian education . Civilitas narrative asserts that “lack of civility” not global goals deceptions and false justice gospel represent the biggest threat to civilization in the world.

Lausanne and Keller and TGC have all furthered the deceptions which they refuse to admit are the real dangers faced by a church in bed with and heavily yoked and funded by the world which hates them. Polis Institute is but one more nail in the coffin of institutionalized Christianity in the US and the West.

Some helpful history of the origins of Polis Institute at Reformed Theological Seminary Orlando campus , it’s partnership with CRU/aka Campus Crusade and Keller’s role in its development can be found here .

This partnership collaboration began in 2005 and birthed Polis Institute at RTS by 2009. Now in 2022 it is openly part of the UN Global Sustainability Goals of Globalist .

Polis Institute launched from a flimsy and out of context use of one bible verse in Jeremiah warning to Jewish captives which had been taken away from Jerusalem to Babylon due to their long history of idolatry and unfaithfulness to God and informing them that their captivity would be a long one.

Jeremiah 29:

And seek the peace of the city where I have caused you to be carried away captive, and pray to the Lord for it; for in its peace you will have peace.

RTS/ Keller / CRU / Polis used this one verse to say that a core element of Christian faith is to “care for cities” and they built an entire global shift in Christian mission around it calling it “Seeking the Welfare of the City”. The Human Flourishing/ Theology of Cities narrative is all built around this flimsy narrative which is an attempt to retro-fit Christianity for globalist outcomes with origins from a Frankfurt School inspired think tank IASC. COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT is now the future role of the church according to this grand globalist scheme.

POLIS FOCUS ON CITIES AND CITY PLANNING LOCKSTEP WITH GLOBAL GOALS

“CITY PROFILE EXECUTIVE SUMMARY”
“Cities are never blank slates. Every urban ranking and rating begs
acknowledgement of lasting cultural legacies and histories. It is essential that any quantitative assessment not stand outside of context. At stake is the difference between possessing sheer quantities of Information, on the one hand, and quality knowledge, or wisdom, on the other. In order to put data Into a context for wise action, Thriving Cities has created distinct city profiles for its pilot cities.”
These profiles are central in that they characterize a given pilot city in relation to the Project’s distinctive “human ecology” framework and research design. In applying the human ecology framework, profilers collected and analyzed both quantitative and qualitative data on each city according to the six fundamental community endowment areas. Additionally, the profile assesses the unique ways in which the community endowments interact with and relate to each other in the context of a particular city.
City profiles include conventional demographic, economic, and political data, but also incorporate information pertaining to a city’s historical peculiarities, cultural norms, and community perceptions, at both the macro-community and the micro-sub-community (e.g., neighborhood) level. They will stand alone as important resources about and in service to their communities.”

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY
“This report was created for the Thriving Cities Project of the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture (IASC) at the University of Virginia. The report was prepared by a five-member Orlando Profile Research Team (OPRT) that identified “leading voices” in Metro Orlando with key influence or an understanding of the Six Endowments outlined by the IASC. The OPRT conducted unstructured interviews and assessed the public comments of the leading voices in order to create a list of Essential Subjects for each Endowment—the areas of greatest threat or potential.
To facilitate its work, the OPRT created a working definition of thriving: “where the sum of past decisions meets the collective hope for the future.” For Metro Orlando, past decisions have helped build America’s most visited city, which received 59 million visitors in 2013. Orlando was also the ninth-fastest-growing city in the United States in terms of population in 2013. Rapid population expansion is nothing new to Orlando. The growth of its Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA), which includes Orange, Seminole, Osceola, and Lake Counties, has remained very strong since 1970, averaging a net gain of eighty-eight people per day between 1970 and 2010. 1
This tremendous growth has been fueled by the tourism and hospitality industry and its leading purveyor, Walt Disney World, which opened its doors in 1971. And it is this same growth that has created Orlando’s greatest challenges and opportunities.
Orlando’s hope for the future is that its economy will sufficiently strengthen and diversify so that all residents can have a greater opportunity to prosper. Its service sector work force is vulnerable to the rapidly changing tides of not only a regional economy but, because Orlando is an international destination, the global economy as well. The cyclical nature of the tourism economy creates seasons of widely varying demand on social services that make it difficult to develop a viable independent sector.
It is believed that if Orlando forms a cohesive identity that incorporates its successful tourism brands while not being exclusively defined by them, the area will strengthen by attracting other industries that require skilled labor and creativity.”

REFORMED THEOLOGICAL SEMIANRY /POLIS INSTITUTE PARTNERSHIP WITH CRU INCLUDES DEGREE PROGRAMS WHICH OVERLAP BOTH ORGANIZATIONS

“RTS and Cru

Partners in Ministry

Taking seminary to you

“Reformed Theological Seminary and CRU’s Institute of Biblical Studies (IBS) are offering these classes for credit with both institutions. This cooperative agreement helps maximize your time and expense in theological training and broadens your educational experience.”

“RTS delivers exceptional theological training opportunity through regional, extension, and distance education. In fact, RTS was the first seminary where you could receive an accredited degree through distance learning. It’s designed for Cru staffers in search of personal theological development or aspiring to gain a Master’s degree. RTS helps you obtain your degree through on-site learning (available at every RTS campus location), through our winter/summer Master of Arts in Christian Counseling program, the online program and the Hybrid Master of Divinity degree.

MANY people STOPPED SUPPORTING CRU and staffers have left CRU it due to its increasingly WOKE and false social justice teachings. The RTS/ Polis/ Keller/Seeking the Welfare of the City partnerships and collaboration are at the root of much of this error.

TIM KELLER’S SUPPORTING BUT FALSE “THEOLOGY OF CITIES”

Redeemer City to City- Tim Keller’s church planting arm- his expansive media machine with TGC , and his supermarket of false globalist teaching materials “For the Gospel ” and CRU all promote his “Theology of Cities ” ideology birthed out of a Frankfurt School Think Tank and ending in the embrace of the UN Global Goals as the Gospel of Jesus Christ . Unbelievable – Unthinkable- Unimaginable ? Yes but none the less a fact.

CRU promotion of Keller’s Theology of Cities ideology.

Keller

“As more and more people become city-dwellers it is
imperative that the church understands how to reach
out to the expanding cities of the 21st century. Here
Tim Keller shares some biblical insights.
THE MEANING OF THE CITY
God designed the city with the power to draw out the
resources of creation (of the natural order and the
human soul) and thus to build civilisation.
A. GOD’S INVENTION
God’s future redeemed world and universe is depicted
as a ‘city’. Abraham sought the city ‘whose builder
and maker is God’ (Hebrews 11.10). Revelation 21
describes and depicts the apex of God’s redemption,
as a city! His redemption is building us a city – the new
Jerusalem.
In fact, when we look at the New Jerusalem, we
discover something strange. In the midst of the city
is a crystal river, and on each side of the river is the
Tree of Life, bearing fruit and leaves which heal the
nations of all their wounds and the effects of the
divine covenant curse. This city is the Garden of Eden,
remade. The City is the fulfilment of the purposes of
the Eden of God. We began in a garden but will end
in a city; God’s purpose for humanity is urban! Why?

So the city is God’s invention and design, not just a
sociological phenomenon or invention of humankind.
B. WHY CITIES DEVELOP CULTURE
‘The city is not to be regarded as an evil invention
of ungodly fallen man… The ultimate goal set before
humanity at the very beginning was that humanculture

should take city-form… there should be an
urban structuring of human historical existence…
The cultural mandate given at creation was a
mandate to build the city. Now, after the fall, the
city is still a benefit, serving humankind as refuge
from the howling wilderness condition into which
the fallen human race, exiled from paradise, has
been driven… The common grace city has remedial
benefits even in a fallen world. It becomes the
drawing together of resources, strength and talent no
longer just for mutual complementation in the task
of developing the resources of the created world, but
now a pooling of power for defence against attack,
and as an administrative community of welfare for
the relief of those destitute by reason of the cursing of
the ground’ (Meredith G. Kline, ‘Kingdom Prologue’).”

KELLERS CULTURE REDEEMING- GLOBAL GOALS EMBRACING DOMINIONISM

“It is widely understood that when God tells Adam
and Eve to ‘have dominion’ and ‘fill the earth’ he is
directing them to build a God-honouring civilisation.
They are to bring forth the riches that God put into
creation by developing science, art, architecture,
human society. Kline reveals, however, that since
Revelation reveals that the ‘end’ of creation (the
climax of the work of the ‘Second Adam’ Jesus Christ)
is a city – that therefore God was calling Adam and
Eve to be city builders. City building is an ordinance
of God just like work and marriage. And indeed, cities
draw together human talent and resources and tap the
human potential for cultural development as nothing
else does.”

SEEKING THE WELFARE OF THE CITY /RTS/POLIS/CRU INCLUSION OG PRO LGBTQ URBAN PLANNER RICHARD FLORIDA’S “GAY METRICS FOR SUCCESS AND THE “CREATIVE CLASS”.

RICHARD FLORIDA’S WORK WITH LGBTQ+ ORG HUMAN RIGHTS CAMPAIGN MUNICIPAL  EQUALITY INDEX.

Keller , RTS and CRU work with the original establishment of Polis Institute drew heavily from the Richard Florida urban theories of “The Creative Class” and his “Gay Indexes ” which have been central to driving urban renewal grants and government as well as private foundation funding. The Human Rights Campaign then established Richard Florida’s metrics as their own measurement for municipalities which remain key to LGBTQ rights adn inclusion in any and all urban renewal , funding for it and grant programs related to it.

“In today’s world, cities must compete for business and brain power.   Research shows that to do this, they must treat their LGBT citizens with dignity and respect. Acclaimed Professor Richard Florida authored the forward for the MEI. Professor Florida is a pioneer in research into how the nurturing of a “creative class” (entrepreneurs, artists and architects, researchers, scientists, engineers, and other professionals) creates prosperous, economically competitive cities.”

POLIS INSTITUTE AND CRU/KELLER /RTS WORK WITH FLORIDA IDEOLOGY IN ORLANDO

“Richard Florida
Richard Florida is Hirst Professor of Public Policy at George Mason University
School of Public Policy. Prior to 2005, he taught at Carnegie Mellon University’s
Heinz School. Florida is best known for developing the concept of the creative
class and studying its effects on urban regeneration.84”
“The Rise of the Creative Class: And How It’s Transforming Work, Leisure,
Community and Everyday Life (Basic Books, 2002)”

– Creative capital is the ability of people to create, innovate, and invent new things and new ways of doing things.
– Richard Florida has witnessed creative capital, not social capital, driving
economic growth.
– Orlando ranked 38/49 in large regions based on percentage of creative class in
workforce (28%).
– Orlando has a huge percentage of service class workers, topped only by West
Palm Beach and Las Vegas.
– “My conclusion was that rather than being driven exclusively by companies,
economic growth was occurring in places that were tolerant, diverse, and open
to creativity- because these were places where creative people of all types
wanted to live” (pg. 82).  Found on page  80 of STWC Report .”

CONCLUSION

United Nations Sustainability Goals are also called Agenda 21 and agenda 2030.These are the Globalist dream list and have been embraced by the Southern Baptist ERLC- Focus on the Family- The Gospel Coalition. Pope Francis and the Vatican subscribed in 2015 at the UN itself as the Agenda 2030 renaming and refocusing was adopted shortening the end goals fulfilment by 20 years from 2050 to 2030 . The World Economic Forum and its Great Reset and open use of the 2020 global Pandemic as a catalyst for economic weakness and opportunity are all aimed at Global Goals total implementation . WEF has openly utilized Faith Leaders especially evangelical leaders in the West to promote these ideals and goals.

The UN Sustainable Development Goals are a forerunner to or are perhaps the very framework of the building of global cities under global governance for an earthly kingdom tantamount to the reestablishment of the Tower of Babel complete with a false global interfaith spirituality and serving to suppress humanity – human development -and human populations. To dare label it “Human Flourishing” is a mockery of humans everywhere and humanity and human rights across the spectrum of human existence.

These are in fact the continuation of the long history of Crimes Against Humanity seeking to control and suppress and lord over every aspect of human life. These ideas have on them the smell of HELL itself and the fingerprints of the god of this world and manifest their demonic lust in organizations like the World Economic Forum and the UN Population Council and Planned Parenthood International. Flourishing is not among the Sustainable Development Goals interest. But totalitarian control is.

To call it the “Gospel” and to indoctrinate our youth – flood our seminaries- our pulpits -our churches- and pervert our like precious faith in Jesus with it is a CRIME with eternal consequences. To attribute these things like IACS , Seeking the Welfare of The City and UN Goals to the heart and purposes of God are BLASPHEMY of the first order.

For RTS/ Keller/ CRU/ Polis Institute/ TGC/ Much of Christian Media promoting these false teachings and ideologies -Missions organizations and entire denominational movements signing on- the exhortation is simple:

Hosea 4:17

“Ephraim is joined to idols,
Let him alone.”
