EXILES IN BABYLON
March 23-25, 2023 | Boise, Idaho
“To be a Christian is to be an exile. The Bible has a name for the country we’ve been exiled to: Babylon. As exiles living in Babylon, we need to think biblically, Christianly, indeed exilically—not partisanly—through cultural and political issues.”
“This year, our topics include: The Future of the Church, Disability and the Church, Multiethnic Perspectives of American Christianity, a conversational debate on the Problem of Evil, and a pre-conference symposium on Women in Leadership!”
“Different views will be presented. No question is off limits. No political party will be praised. Everyone will be challenged to think. And Jesus will be upheld as supreme.”

The lingering impacts of Revoice and its LGBT+ activism leadership continue to push their agenda across evangelical circles. Compromised pastors in The Gospel Coalition continue to press the limits while continuing to assert that TGC and they are rooted in biblically orthodoxy. & Campaign which is a direct extension of the Democratic Party and Obama Foundation into the conservative evangelical movements , continues to be endorsed by pastors . Meanwhile Baptist like Matt Chandler who has been selling the snake oil of “white privilege ” and CRT laced false gospel is one of many pastors exhibiting ever increasing boldness in his own fringe endorsements and involvements.
A Tree Known by Its Fruit
33 “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit. 34 Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.
