PARADISE LOST : FAITH TRAFFICKING AND THE PLIGHT OF THE AMERICAN CHURCH

THE FUTURE OF AMERICA IS INSEPARABLY LINKED TO THE CHURCH IN AMERICA.

MEANWHILE AMERICAN EVANGELCIALISM HAS LOST IT’S WAY AFTER DECADES OF FOLLOWING POOR AND SUBVERSIVE LEADERSHIP WHO “TRAFFIC” IN THE FAITH OF OTHERS.

Rev Thomas Littleton

7/24/2021

Whether or not America represents Paradise to the reader of this article may be up for debate. Yet America has always represented something very unique to millions of people around the world. America has provided opportunity and freedom from religious persecution and oppressive regimes for almost 250 years. America has offered hope to many seeking refuge and a new life. But America is under siege from within and the Paradise it has represented to millions of refugees IS being lost to a manufactured “Refugee crisis” backed by open society money and fronted by faith based hustlers who traffic in the faith of those who heed it’s sirens call to serve modern day human migration efforts and “refugee resettlement”.

Today, instead of offering escape and refuge for the oppressed peoples of the world , American progressivism has perverted the vision for refugees into becoming an opportunity for globalist /open societies deconstructionist of national borders and the sovereignty of America and Europe. The agenda doubtless will lead to a new type of tyranny practiced , planned and executed by a global cabal made up of a club of corporate billionaires, governmental puppets and preaching grand deception of a civil society based on common ground for the common good i.e. global socialism. THE big shock for many here in this scheme to take down nations and establish their twisted global goals for global citizens is a sick, emaciated and blind evangelical Church. No other entity can provide a more seductive and dishonest vision than the false prophets and the thriving partnership of a false church. Nothing is a greater threat to humanity, to freedom in the world, to the dereliction of truth and wisdom and than the church which has become a whore to the Babylonian influences of globalist.

The greatest danger for true refugees in the world is engineered mass human migration marketed on the backs of Christian compassion and aimed at teaming hoards strategically placed humans who are themselves being trafficked into play by governments and agencies to alter the face of America and religious freedom forever.

This article is to provide both proof and limited commentary on the “State of the Church” in America. In many ways both are crumbling and the seduction of the church is the primary cause of it. The Church in America is no longer standing in contrast to the culture or serving as salt and light within it. We have lost our Christian press and our institutions to progressives. Our ability to speak truth to power like Paul before Agrippa or Festus of Felix has been eclipsed by fear and appeasement while the backbone of our pulpits have given way to wishbones for popularity and expanding the growth of it’s brand.

At the end of this article we will look a JUST ONE MINISTRY as a PRIME EXAMPLE of how greed, self interest, progressive politics and globalist goals compliance have made World Vision (and those who work with it) an enemy to Freedom, to America, to the Gospel and to GOD. Sadly there are hundreds if not thousands of examples but a revealing Christianity Today article July 20 2021 inadvertently exposes much of the motivation, the history, the politics and grand scheme of ministries in the RED LIGHT DISTRICT of a global AMSTERDAM of vision casting and greed.

This is the kind of seductive error Jesus and His angels visited Patmos to warn John and the church about through the ages. The church is called to watch for and reject these errors and false teachers or else lose their place among the true church. Much is at stake in this dance of fools and international faith trafficking. World Relief and others are currently posturing for compliance as all who wish to bed down the church for money MUST do.

NO MORE DOES THE CROSS GO BEFORE US

Of late the church has come to behave like professional sports teams with Native American mascots as we seek to dump and distance ourselves from the CROSS and the SHAME, REPROACH, AND OFFENSE it brings with it. No longer does the ancient symbol of Jesus love and sacrifice represent Christians who are more concerned with alienating the culture than preaching a Gospel which confronts sin, calls for repentance and offers transforming hearts and saving souls via the timeless message of the Cross.

The clouds of political rhetoric and talking points of manipulative think tanks blur their vision of both time and eternity. American Christians have become ashamed of the wrong things while they march in the pride parades of the wicked. They are allowing deceivers to make them ashamed of their nation and the freedoms for their own faith to thrive and grow. All the while the vision of ministry is being reimagined and recast as social justice driven schemes like refugee care, community development, and mere humanitarian aid.

AGAIN- Was America ever PARADISE? Well for some that is a stretch but for almost 2 1/2 centuries it has been the closest thing to it to have existed on earth. But PARADISE IS ALWAYS LOST at some points because of those entrusted to preserve it. In our case that job fell to the pulpits whose presence and devotion to the true Gospel is needed to maintain the fragile similitude of freedom by steadily calling the nation to it’s knees in both in times of crisis and in times of plenty. It has been a LONG TIME since a pulpit in America called its nation to repentance. Paradise is in the eyes (and hearts) of the beholder. The only way America could have any hope to offer anyone would be if it held to the core protections of the ministry of true freedom of the soul found only in the Gospel.

CIVILITY AND PRINCIPLED PLURALISM VS CHRISITAN NATIONALISM

Suddenly a few years ago the coordinated messaging from “preachers” like Tim Keller and Jonathan Leeman and a complicit Christian fake news media replaced patriotism with pointing long fingers and making accusations like “Christian Nationalism” is “killing the church”. Few noticed the back room training these same men have had with Frankfurt School think tanks like IASC and Fabian Socialist London School of Economics. Their crafted rhetoric has prevailed among many. It is now fashionable to be anti American as a Christian while hoards of persecuted believers around the world seek the freedoms we are now despising and throwing away. Soon we will ALL watch those freedoms become vapor.

The only kind of Prophets welcomed in many circles are the false prophets of Baal whose image now resides in the temples of “cultural engagement” and “human flourishing”. Globalism and its finely tuned anti-christ false gospel are now successfully calling Christians to offer the Gospel up in exchange for Community Service and Community Development on a global scale. Meanwhile foreign entities have come in like Antiochus IV (Epiphanes), the king of Syria and are offering the swine of Global Goals upon our alters in defilement of all that is obtained by the Cross. In this the Church has exchanged the truth of God for a lie and the hope and power of the empty tomb for the empty promises of the doomed and damned.

IS THE AMERICAN DREAM TRUE OF FALSE?

For generations of those seeking true freedom and a better life for their families America has been the land of Dreams. It is true to say many have used the idea of an “American Dream” to promote and pursue fulfillment of greed and pleasure in the name of freedom. It can also be accurately said that the American Dream has produced success stories which have birthed some of the greatest philanthropy and altruism any generation has even known. But in doing so has made itself a target of globalist who want to “harness” the power of philanthropy for it’s own purposes.

PREACHERS ARE TO BLAME

It has been well said that “as the Church goes so goes the world around it”. It can also be said “as the pulpits corrupt the church falters and blindness , hardness of hearts, and delusion set in like rigor mortis once the vision is lost.”.

America has a Gospel history. That is not to assert that America was ever a “Christian Nation” but it a nation influenced by the Gospel and for many generations it’s culture was both impacted and held to some degree accountable to it. There are many in the pulpits today who bemoan America and the Churches decline over the last decades but few who are willing to admit that the decline happened on their watch.

WORLD RELIEF

A PRIME EXAMPLE OF ALLOWING THE ENGINEERED LOSS OF PARADISE WHILE TRAFFICKING IN HUMAN FAITH AS A COMMODITY.

World Relief is the “Humanitarian arm” of the National Association of Evangelicals (NAE). The fact NAE is hardly a pristine organization can be confirmed by the fact that leaders have included people like disgraced homosexual Ted Haggard and Leith Anderson who played a key role in the grand seduction of thousands of pastors via Leadership Network founding in 1984 and 40 years of stealth influence and media manipulation.

ORGANIZATIONS EXPLOITING CHRISTIAN BELIEVERS ARE ENGAGING IN A PARTICULAR TYPE OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING.

Transferring the concept of exploitation involved in human trafficking and sex trafficking a fitting definition of TRAFFICKING Christians faith to be exploited by globalist could read this way:

(From Homeland Security definition of human and sex trafficking with only the word “faith” substituted in as the group identified as being exploited.)

“Faith trafficking is one of the most heinous forms of modern slavery. This form of human trafficking occurs when people enslave other people for the purpose of faith based exploitation. Faith trafficking involves the use of force, fraud, or coercion to obtain some type of labor or commercial faith act. Every year, millions of men, women, and children are trafficked worldwide – including right here in the United States. It can happen in any community and victims can be any age, race, gender, or nationality. Traffickers might use deception, manipulation, or false promises of well-paying jobs or faith based relationships to lure victims into trafficking situations.”

“Traffickers use force, fraud, or coercion to lure their victims and force them into labor or commercial exploitation.”

AN UNFAIR CHARATERIZATION? HARDLY. FAITH BASED DECEIVERS ARE TRAFFICKING IN RECRUITING HUMAN VOLUNTEERS TO MAN THEIR SCHEMES AND PARTNERSHIP PROGRAMS WITH GLOBALIST.

The deception begins with marketing a ministry vision where true spiritual ministry is forbidden as Faith Based Partnerships do not allow ANY EXPLIXCITLY RELIGIOUS ACTIVIST ,ESPCIALLY CHRISTIAN EVANGELISM, Bible study, worship, proselytizing, or even prayer. So the vision of partnering with global goals entities ,when being sold as Gospel ministry, is fraudulent at the very core. Those selling such assertions are committing fraud when the Gospel is strictly forbidden from the programs. Christians should ALREADY know that government agencies and global organizations are not going to pay them to evangelize and do the work of the Gospel. Constitutionally they CANNOT use public funds to aid in the Establishment of any particular faith. Interfaith humanitarian aid is the only possible -legal middle ground in such efforts. Is this a place for the church to be seeking to “Thrive”? If it is then it must leave the Gospel behind.

HIGHER AND GRANDER SCHEMES

Recently a member of the United States Conference of Bishops was reported to have said that Americans need to “share their wealth” with immigrants and refugees. In such a case, well beyond the exploitation of free labor in the form of volunteers, FAITH traffickers are also luring their victims in for wealth redistribution in the NOT TOO DISTANT future.

AN EVEN GREATER OFFENSE -PROMOTING A DEADLY RIVAL FAITH ON AMERICAN SHORES.

Baptist and other faith leaders have been advocating for the protection of Religious Liberty for Muslims as the refugee numbers surged. False narratives like “God is bringing the people of Islamic nations to America for the Gospel instead of us having to go to them”. Also the push of false assertions that “Islam is pro religious liberty ” or that “Sharia and the U S Constitution are compatible “. continue to be marketed far and wide among evangelicals. These talking points are false and deceptive and dangerous.

PROMOTING REUGEES AND ISLAMIC PROLIFIRATION IN AMERICA AS MINISTRY

World Relief is big in the Refugee Business.

it serves as the go to evangelical partner and recruiter of evangelicals for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops into the vision of “Refugee Resettlement”, World Relief lobbied against the Trump era ban on Muslim migration.

World Relief Sponsors Side Event to Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom to Urge the Restoration of the U.S. Refugee Resettlement Program as an Essential Part of a Robust International Religious Freedom Agenda

BALTIMORE, Md. – “Today, World Relief, HIAS, The Episcopal Church, the National Association of Evangelicals and the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops/Migration and Refugee Services (USCCB/MRS) cosponsored an official congressional briefing as a side event to the State Department’s Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom. These organizations, plus panelists including representatives from the Free Yezidi Foundation, the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), and a Liberian refugee and pastor, called U.S. leadership to increase the number of refugees accepted in the U.S. as well as to continue robust refugee funding. While expressing gratitude to Secretary of State Pompeo for his commitment to pursue an international religious freedom agenda, the groups urged that having a robust refugee resettlement program can bolster the success of that mission.”

MOTIVES EXPOSED BY CHRISTIANITY TODAY

Christianity Today in its recent article /INTERVIEW celebrating the new World Relief President and CEO and the Biden policies shifts on immigration did a huge reveal of the motivations and end game of World Relief’s political activities. As part of the scheme World Vision has a new President and a new program pushing the false “justice and equity” gospel.

WORLD RELIEF IS A LEADING VOLAG

 Volag or VolAg, is an abbreviation for “Voluntary Agency

According to the Center for Immigration Studies in 2018 :

“Inside the United States, nine non-governmental organizations work with, and are funded by, the Department of State to resettle refugees. These religious or community-based organizations referred to as voluntary agencies (or volags) help resettled refugees with the following: reception upon arrival; support with housing, food, and clothing; community orientation;”

(By 2018) The nine volags are:

Church World Service (CWS) (religious)

Episcopal Migration Ministries (EMM) (religious)

Ethiopian Community Development Council (ECDC)

Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS) (religious)

International Rescue Committee (IRC)

Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Services (LIRS) (religious)

U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI)

United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) (religious)

World Relief Corporation (WR) (religious)

The report covers the 2015 grant dollars and other matching support of World Vision for Refugee Care. $50 million in one year was not bad pay for Faith Trafficking Christians and the church.

  • These volags are funded, for the most part, by the U.S. government. Government funding ranges from a low of 58.5 percent  to a high of 97.3 percent. (Some services provided, and government funds received, by these organizations may be non-refugee-related.)
  • Yearly compensations for the heads of these organizations range from a low of $132,000 to a high of $671,749.

World Relief Corporation (WR)

Form 990, 2015

Contributions and Grants: $66,262,886

Government Grants: $46,776,420 (70.6 percent)

After Challenging Season, World Relief Names New President

“Myal Greene is optimistic about resuming robust refugee resettlement programs under the Biden administration.” INTERVIEW BY STEFANI MCDADE|

THE ANTI TRUMP MOTIVATIONS OF WORLD RELIEF AND ITS PARTNERS LIKE RUSSELL MOORE

” In the past few months, World Relief began ramping up their resources and rebuilding infrastructure under President Biden. Ministry leaders were also among the advocates holding the Biden administration accountable to his promise to raise the refugee ceiling after the move was delayed by months.

WORLD RELIEF IS ELATED WITH BIDEN ADMIN POLICY

“World Relief had shut down eight of its 27 national offices due to yearly cuts in refugee admissions and resettlement funding under the Trump administration’s restrictive policies.”… ” We believe there’s going to be strong support for refugee resettlement from the Biden administration. We’ve learned that they were open to listening to the opinions of stakeholders and we’re really encouraged by their responsiveness, their concern and the seriousness with which they’re taking these issues. We’re encouraged by the ceiling raising to 62,500 for this fiscal year, and we’re optimistic that the ceiling will be raised to 125,000 next year. We’re excited about that. And while this comes with a need for resourcing and organizational capacity building after years of reduced numbers, we know there are many churches and community organizations eager to participate in the process and ready to respond to the opportunity to welcome more refugees into this country.”

NEVER MIND THE SLAUGHTER OF THE UNBORN”

The Biden administration, like the Obama administration before it and the Hillary Campaign of 2016 deep devotion to Planned Parenthood and the international KILLING FIELDS of global abortion have not deterred World Relief and others from supporting and partnering with globalist.

WE BE PARTNERS YALL- NEVER MIND THE SMELL

“Our work overseas is quite robust and dates back to the origins of our organization. We have three major areas of emphasis: The first is humanitarian or emergency response, which is serving people in refugee camps or internally displaced people (IDP) camps, and those returning to their home community—so there’s a lot of synergy and connectedness to the work that we do in the US. The second area of our work is in community and public health, where we’ve found great support from donors and collaboration with USAID and UNICEF. And then the third is a church-based community development initiative, an integrated model where we engage churches in meeting the needs of their neighbors—from economic and social to strengthening marriages and working with children.”

COMPLIANCE PROGRAM FOR EQUITY DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION

“Earlier this year, Greene was also involved in a large-scale initiative at World Relief called Forward Together, which developed a strategic plan to increase a focus on fostering greater diversity, equity and inclusion within the organization and across its programs.”

Equation is simple- more compliance = more grant funding.

World Relief according to some sources has already profited some $300 million from bedding down with globalist.

MOTIVES ? THE WORST POSSIBLE $$$$$ JUST FILTHY LUCRE

Both here and abroad, a key feature of World Relief’s humanitarian work is its reliance on partnerships with local churches and ministries in addition to public or government grants.

THE PLANS TO SEDUCE THE CHURCH

“Since 1944, the Christian nonprofit has focused on engaging with church networks to raise support, advocate, and mobilize volunteers to join their mission.”

BACK IN BUSINESS

“We felt very strongly at that time that we wanted to be able to increase the number of resettlement sites that we operated in. And going forward, we see that as a very healthy way to conduct this work—to have more opportunities and locations for resettlement to take place. An increased number of resettlement cases really necessitates a larger footprint. As far as the dream vision, I would say we want to be at a place where we’re able to meet and respond to our full share of those being resettled among the other implementing partners. This means we’re looking at a variety of options to rapidly increase our scale, consider partnership opportunities, as well as open new offices or reopen locations that have previously been closed.”

THE PLANS TO PUSH HUMAN MIGRATION ESPEPCIALLY ISLAM “REFUGEES” EXPANDED TO INCLUDE “COMMUNITY ACTIVIST”.

“The season of ministry where we were less engaged in refugee resettlement allowed us to focus on working with churches and other community activists to offer broader services to the larger immigrant community, not just refugees—to consider how we engage local churches in being part of an environment of welcome for immigrants of all backgrounds. We think about advocacy in terms of relationship to public policy and to public opinion, and what we’ve learned is there are a lot of different messages in churches across the country. So as this has become a very polarizing issue, we see the role World Relief can play in advocating on behalf of immigrants and refugees to churches and faith communities.”

COVID FUNDING ABOUNDS SO WORLD RELIEF IS THERE FOR THE PANDEMIC INDUSTRY.

“Beyond resettling refugees domestically, World Relief also runs a number of international initiatives which continue to serve vulnerable populations in underserved countries in the midst of the worldwide COVID-19 crisis. In his previous role as senior vice president of international programs, Greene increased their funding and more than doubled their global reach in the past two years.”

TRINTY FORUM AND THE SOROS FUNDED NATIONAL IMMIGRATION TABLE- A FAVORITE TRAFFICKING STOP FOR WORLD VISION.

Evening Conversation | “Love Thy Neighbor” in a Globalized World, with Michael Gerson and Stephan Bauman

“May 23, 2016 / contentsupport2 / Trinity Forum Evening Conversation with Michael Gerson and Stephan Bauman This is the full, unedited version of the Trinity Forum Evening Conversation with Michael Gerson and Stephan Bauman. In our first event in our five-part Evening Conversation series on faith and international development, Washington Post columnist Michael Gerson and World Relief President Stephan Bauman discussed”

TRINITY FORUM /WORLD RELIEF PARTERING ORGANIZATIONS HAVE INCLUDED SOUTHERN BAPTIST

(From Capstone Report article November 2020)

“Earlier this year, Baptist Standard ran an article disputing “rumors” that Russell Moore received funding from Soros’ foundations. Dr. Moore and the ERLC have found themselves in the crosshairs of Soros-related debates because of Moore’s active involvement with the EIT. A document from November 13, 2012, addressed to President Obama clearly lists the ERLC alongside nine other groups as the groups comprising the EIT: World Relief Corporation, Sojourners, Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, Bread for the World, Liberty Counsel, National Association of Evangelicals, National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, National Latino Evangelical Coalition, World Vision, and G92.”

“In 2013, spokespeople for the EIT had already admitted to Breitbart News that their group “does not exist as its own non-profit” and “sought a neutral third-party institution, the NIF, to help facilitate our work.” Despite the strenuous denials that Mr. Soros’ money was involved, it is clear that the “facilitation” of the EIT depends on a structure financed by Mr. Soros, the NIF. Any doubt of separation between the initiatives now hold no weight since Dr. Moore is prominently listed as a speaker for the 2020 convention of the NIF and has his own webpage on the NIF website.”

NOTE: documents confirming over $2.5 million in Open Borders Society funding went into the establishment of the NIF and the faith trafficking bed fellows has been presented by this and many other publications including Captstone Report.

WORLD RELIEF AND LEADING EVANGELICALS WHO DROVE THE ANTI-TUMP NARRATIVE FOR 6 YEARS HAVE A A SELF SERVING CONFLICT OF INTEREST TO SAY THE LEAST.

It is clear that Christians are growing tired of being “pimped out” by these kinds of leaders and averse to being shamed for their political convictions , “White Nationalism”- “White Privilege ” and “Fragility.This often happens even when they are people of color with the wrong political alignment. So good news may be on the horizon.

The Christianity Today interview confirms in total what many like this author have been warning about for a decade. Key players are “Trafficking the FAITH of American believers in the global marketplace of VOLAGS and NGO’s and to those in secular government and foundations who hate them, their faith and their nation of origin. Their motives look to be pretty simple and easy to discern. The Government and large global goals Foundations will pay them well for the Souls they lure in.

If this is not the case then World Relief and others should step up to public forums and explain ALL of the fault lines, false narratives and gospel hinderances and be honest abut their full motivation providing notes from all backroom meetings and policy agreements inspiring initiatives like “Forward Together” for more ” equity, diversity and inclusion”. World Relief and other agencies need to stop preying on our faith AND on our College age Children in our Christian Institutions .They need to be accountable for full disclosure about all funding, sources and the restriction of Gospel ministry AND forced compliance to progressive compromise to which they have signed on. They also need to explain their rationale behind promoting Islamic proliferation in America. Western Europe is a stark reminder of how failed this policy is and, from any Biblical perspective, how anti American and anti Gospel the end game is.

CHRISTIAN VOLAGS COME CLEAN – HOW MUCH OPEN SOCIETIES AND OTHER AGENDA DRIVEN DOLLARS HAVE YOU TAKEN?

A RAY OF HOPE : IS GOD SWEEPING THE HOUSE?

Has God had enough? Is Jesus once again driving the moneychangers from His house?

image.png
Jesus clearing the temple holds promise for the saints in recent revelations of deception and subversion. More is coming for the sake of His flock. Be watchful and pray and do not buy their vision.

DECEPTION RISING IS IN ITSELF PART OF THE HOPE OF REDEMPTION TO COME.

Revelation 13 :

The Beast from the Earth

11 Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. 12 And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. 14 And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. 15 He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed.”

Revelation 22:

The Time Is Near

Then he said to me, “These words are faithful and true.” And the Lord God of the [b]holy prophets sent His angel to show His servants the things which must shortly take place.

“Behold, I am coming quickly! Blessed is he who keeps the words of the prophecy of this book.”

Now I, John, [c]saw and heard these things. And when I heard and saw, I fell down to worship before the feet of the angel who showed me these things.

Then he said to me, “See that you do not do that. [d]For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God.” 10 And he said to me, “Do not seal the words of the prophecy of this book, for the time is at hand. 11 He who is unjust, let him be unjust still; he who is filthy, let him be filthy still; he who is righteous, let him [e]be righteous still; he who is holy, let him be holy still.”

Jesus Testifies to the Churches

12 “And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the [f]Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.”

14 Blessed are those who [g]do His commandments, that they may have the right to the tree of life, and may enter through the gates into the city. 15 [h]But outside are dogs and sorcerers and sexually immoral and murderers and idolaters, and whoever loves and practices a lie.

16 “I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.”

17 And the Spirit and the bride say, “Come!” And let him who hears say, “Come!” And let him who thirsts come. Whoever desires, let him take the water of life freely.

A Warning

18 [i]For I testify to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds to these things, [j]God will add to him the plagues that are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God[k] shall take away his part from the [l]Book of Life, from the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

I Am Coming Quickly

20 He who testifies to these things says, “Surely I am coming quickly.”

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!

“EGALITARIANS AND COMPLEMENTARIANS TOGETHER” OR “BEESON SEMINARY & INTERSECTIONALITY IN THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST”. PART 1

Feminism is rising in conservative Christian circles (again) so can Seminaries build bridges without creating platforms for feminist and lesbians?

Rev Thomas Littleton

7/20/2021

Beeson Seminary which is on the campus of Samford University in Birmingham Al. recently announced a new “Center for Women in Ministry” and held the inaugural conference event in June 2021. It is both curious and concerning that the timing of the launch comes when feminism is clearly rising on the back of intersectionality in the SBC , PCA and other conservative denominations. Timothy George helped found and lead the non denominational seminary since 1984. Yes the seminary is non denominational but it is located on the Campus of Samford University whose founding was as a Southern Baptist school.

(NOTE Samford’s final ties with SBC funding were severed in recent years when Samford faculty approved an LGBTQ activist organization on campus .More on that in a later update.)

Beeson does still have a significant impact on Baptist and other conservative Christian community when churches hire pastors or staff trained at the institution. So should conservative churches who hire graduates of Beeson be concerned about the Center? Yes and for several reasons given some of those involved as well as the stated mission of George in bringing egalitarians and communitarians together in a “New E&C Together ” focus at the crossroads of a culture steeped in Intersectionality.

Timothy George has long been an advocate for common ground in his “A Modest Proposal”. This goes back at least to 2005 in a Christianity Today article

A Modest Proposal

Nine tasks egalitarians and complementarians can pursue.BY TIMOTHY GEORGE|

A QUICK LOOK AT THE NEW CENTER

https://www.beesondivinity.com/women-in-ministry

FROM THE WEBSITE

“The Center for Women in Ministry at Samford University’s Beeson Divinity School exists to encourage and equip women called to Christian ministry and to serve as a resource for the Church of Jesus Christ for the edification of the Church and for the thriving of women in ministry.”

“The Center for Women in Ministry partners with programs and colleagues across the Samford campus, including: Beeson’s Women’s Theological Colloquium, Beeson Alumni Association, Beeson’s Thriving Pastors Initiative, Beeson’s Robert Smith Jr. Preaching Institute, Beeson’s Student Government Association and Minority Student Fellowship, Samford’s Biblical and Religious Studies department, Samford’s Christian Ministry program, Samford’s Center for Worship and the Arts, and many others.”

“The Center for Women in Ministry at Beeson holds to the commitments of Beeson Divinity School and to the two beliefs that God calls women to Christian ministry and the Church needs God-called, theologically trained women in ministry. This Center does not advocate for a complementarian or egalitarian theological position as such, but rather assists all women in evangelical, Protestant churches (whether complementarian or egalitarian) for the sake of the flourishing of women in ministry.”

THE LARGER CONCERN IS ABOUT MORE THAN THE PULPITS

The new Beeson Center launches at a time when sexual abuse scandals abound in the SBC and other complementarian movements. This has caused a push for “MORE women in leadership” in order to “prevent sex abuse and the cover up of abuse”. This is a flawed rhetoric and open door for feminist who wish to target” toxic masculinity” across the board.

Currently books like “Jesus and John Wayne ” and “Surviving Biblical Womanhood” are on a full frontal assault against the perceived “Toxic Masculinity” represented by evangelical men who are “fans of john Wayne and Donald Trump”.

MORE ON FEMINISM RISING HERE :

NEUTRAL GROUND -DOES IT REALLY EXIST? NEVER HAS !

So the Center aims to remain neutral on the issue of “E vs C ” or in other words whether or not women should be in pulpit and pastoral ministry. The real issue is MUCH LARGER. Can conservative Christians enter a E&C dialog without opening the door to feminist and lesbian radicalism?

Intersectionality -“The interconnected nature of social categorizations such as race, class, and gender as they apply to a given individual or group, regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage.”

Intersectionality IS a radical feminist movement. It weds together a collective of self identified victims of discrimination across the range of racial gender ,gay and other identities. It is at the heart of organizations like BLM. Despite all the attention and controversy about Resolution 9 on Critical Race Theory in the 2019 Southern Baptist convention – most seem to have ignored the melting pot of feminist, racial and gender /LGBTQ theory and activism represented by the push of “Intersectionality” along with CRT in the 2019 SBC Resolution # NINE. Trust the experts. Intersectionality is no LOVE POTION.

OFF TO A BAD START

A quick look at the Advisory Board for the Beeson Center for Women in Ministry shows a couple of infiltration points have already manifest.

Revoice “LGBTQ Thriving in Historic Christian Tradition” leader Tish Harrison Warren is a Board Member for the new Center for Women. She is also featured in a chapter of a recent book by the Center’s Executive Director Kristen Padilla.

Revoice conference inaugural event in 2018 exposed disturbing insight into the radical infiltration of both SBC and PCA’s flagship seminaries by “feminist theology” denouncing “the nuclear family as an IDOL”. This narrative is straight out of Drew Divinity School and radical feminist theologians like Janet Fishburn. Fishburn errors are many and Biblical believers should not be espousing her views of family or orthodoxy.

NATE COLLINS OF REVOICE ON THE FAMILY IDOL

“Human = parent??? It’s possible to uphold and prize biblical sexual ethics and marriage while not reinforcing the idolatry of the nuclear family that’s so prevalent in cultural Christianity. Single friends, ESP those who plan to never marry: you are wonderfully and fully human.” Quote from Revoice founder Nate Collins.

REVOICE AND “QUEER CULTURE “

Revoice also celebrated the “treasures which Queer Culture and Queer Theory” offer the church and “will bring into the New Jerusalem . Revoice espouses sexual minority, gay Christian and ” Queer Christian “identities & theory,

The thought leader behind the Revoice movement is American Psychological Association (APA interfaith leader on sexuality and gender Mark Yarhouse of Wheaton College. Yarhouse has fully persuaded many evangelical leaders like Southern Baptist Albert Mohler and PCA’s Tim Keller ( who is a favorite repeat speaker at Beeson) that “sexual orientation” exist and is inborn and unchanging. This is totally counter to the Gospel offer of repentance, freedom from the power of sin, hope and transformation for all sinners. Yarhouse also asserts the confusing reality of gender conflicted-transgenderism among believers. So the assertion is homosexuality is “fixed and cannot be changed” while biological gender not fixed to “‘gender fluid” gender identity. More on that at a later time.

TISH HARRISON WARREN REVOICE AND INTERVARSITY

Tish Harrison Warren@Tish_H_Warren “These past weeks, I’ve felt an ache-in-my-body longing to talk w/Revoice & sideB ( added for clarification- Side B are those who identify as LGBTQ but assert an espousal of celibacy This is a modern take on the “non-practicing homosexuals” narrative of the 1970s activism to infiltrate the mainline denominations.) friends. As a member of the advisory council, I want to be available to talk through *whatever* you want. So this webinar. We’ll talk my book but also happy to answer questions re: the ACNA brouhaha.” ( ACNA is the Anglican Church in North America and the “Brouhaha ” is over women’s ordination. )

Notice the issue of women’s ordination and LGBTQ activism run hand in hand.

TISH HARRISAON WARREN ENDORSEMENT OF GREG JOHNSON’S NEW BOOK .

Activism never sleeps .Even though Greg Johnson’s hosting of Revoice in his PCA Memorial Church in St Louis has caused a massive upheaval in the PCA followed by a significant split and recent efforts to squash the foolish and unbiblical LGBTQ Christian identities – Tish proudly endorses Johnson’s book.

“In the suffocating quagmire of the church’s debates about same-sex sexuality, Greg Johnson’s Still Time to Care is a breath of fresh air. While Johnson unflinchingly documents the failures of the ex-gay movement of the 1980s and ’90s, he also defends a traditional sexual ethic and articulates a ‘paradigm of care’ to counter the ‘paradigm of cure’ that has harmed so many people. Drawing deeply from history, evangelical leaders, and Scripture, Johnson articulates a way forward for sexual minorities and those who love them. Winsome, intelligent, personal, and warm, this book is important and profoundly needed. I want everyone I know to read it.”

—Tish Harrison Warren, Anglican priest; author, Liturgy of the Ordinary and Prayer in the Night

Deep Dive with Tish Harrison Warren

“Check out our most recent Revoice Deep Dive with author Tish Harrison Warren. Join Revoice Executive Director Bekah Mason and Tish as they discuss Tish’s most recent book Prayer in the Night.”

According to her bio Tish- “She has worked in ministry settings for over a decade as a campus minister with InterVarsity Graduate and Faculty Ministries”. InterVaristy publishes Mark Yarhouse books & SPONSORED REVOICE IN 2019. Tish is also a founding member if the Pelican Project with SBC activist women like Karen Swallow Prior. Tish is a “senior fellow” of the problematic Trinity Forum where Obama era activist Michael Wear and now defrocked ERLC former President Russell Moore often role played advocating for “immigration reform” and social justice in the Soros funded National Immigration Forum. Funding for Trinity also comes from the progressive Muslim founder of Ebay.

Another Concern with the Beeson Center for Women in Ministry is the presence of an associate editor for the InterVarsity Press Anna Moseley Gissing. This concern is not only because of it’s 2019 support of Revoice after it’s 2018 controversy but also it’s weighty endorsement of Revoice thought leader and 2019 event speaker Yarhouse.

TIMOTHY GEORGE 2018 INTERVIEW WITH HEAD OF THE CENTER FOR WOMEN IN MINISTRY

George and the new Center’s director interviewed on the issue of women in ministry while she was communications coordinator for Beeson. George espouses the ability to bring these issues to the forefront while not taking a position on them biblically. Really?

Dean Timothy George talks to Kristen Padilla about her new book, “Now That I’m Called: A Guide for Women Discerning a Call to Ministry.”

Kristen Padilla is marketing and communications coordinator at Beeson Divinity School.

Timothy George:	That's what I like about you. Your book sounds a little bit like Beeson Divinity School, in that we don't take an advocacy position on these two positions that are out there in the Christian world. We have professors, and we have students on both sides of those issues. We talk about them. We sometimes have even public discussions about them. We don't sweep it under the rug, but we say, "This should not be a test of fellowship within our community," and that makes us different from other kinds of school. There are seminaries that are strictly complementarian. You couldn't be on the faculty if you didn't, and likewise, strictly egalitarian. You couldn't be on their faculty if you didn't take that ... We have a both and approach. We're not the only school like that. There are a number of others as well, and you seem to ... I guess the word is tension. There's a tension in your treatment of this issue which you find somehow reflected in the scriptures themselves. Is that right?

Kristen Padilla:	That's correct. I say in the book that we don't want to write off the difficult passages of scripture to make us feel better, but at the same time, we don't want to create a canon within a canon, elevating one text above the other, so I'm trying to help the women, in a gentle way, to enter into the tension of scripture, where on the one hand, you find women prophesying, very involved in the work of ministry, and then on the other hand, you have difficult texts like First Timothy 2. I want us to be faithful to Scripture as both complementarians and egalitarians do. We want to be faithful to the text, but I also want them to wrestle with the text, partly because they're going to wrestle with these questions if they haven't already. I want them to be prepared for that wrestling now, so that when they encounter these questions, and they encounter these texts later, that they'll be able to stand on a firmer footing. 

Timothy George:	Yeah, so let me pose the question this way. If you're a complementarian woman, and we shouldn't think all complementarians are men, of course. There are many complementarian women, even women theologians who are complementarian, and likewise egalitarians, there's both/and, if you're a complementarian, what can this book help you with? How can it help you understand this issue better?

Kristen Padilla:	For many women that I've encountered, and I grew up in complementarian traditions in churches, but for some women in certain complementarian traditions, they might feel that there's no place for them in ministry. I really hope that they feel encouraged where they may not feel encouraged. I also hope that they will see that even their ministry is restricted to women and children, that is a valuable ministry, that women and children are God's sheep. They are made in God's image, and delivering God's Word for them is just as important as it is to deliver it to men. I want them to see value in any sector of ministry that they are allowed to do. I also want them to wrestle with the idea that the Spirit gives gifts that are not divided along gender lines, and this is something that Anne Bowman talks about in her piece in the book Two Views on Women in Ministry, the first edition that I have, published by Zondervan. She's a complementarian, and she talks about the use of gifts. You do not have to have an office or even a pulpit to practice these gifts.

The notion of espousing neutrality while hosting the controversy is almost silly. E vs C is a divisive issue while George being a theologian heading a theological institution, the problem with “neutrality” should be glaringly obvious. George has raised many conservative believers concerns during his years at Beeson. The new Center for Women in Ministry and the push for Egalitarians and Complementarians Together looks to be yet another misstep in his troubled and fading legacy.

CONCLUSION

Some WOULD LOVE TO THINK Timothy George advocacy and “modest proposal” for a new E&C Together movement is helpful and harmless. In these times of intersectionality and it’s march through the institutions, neutrality looks like surrender and has the same eventual outcome. Black Lives Matter is led by radicalized racism feminist and lesbian activist who have attacked Christianity openly. Moreover with the current push against “toxic masculinity ” among evangelicals who love John Wayne let us consider carefully what entities like The Beeson Center of Women In Ministry are seeking to create. Is a forum for common ground and dialog without a theological stand amid the controversial and divisive issue able to discern and protect such a conversation or it’s participants from the rabid and destructive feminist agenda? Given that Revoice leaders and financial supporters have already infiltrated the new Center for Women in Ministry at Beeson … things are not looking good. Can Beeson’s new Center be neutral? Seems a very simple minded notion for deep thinking theologians.

The Leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees

“Pharisees and Sadducees Together”? Good luck with that.

Jesus warns of the leaven of doctrine.

Matthew 16:

Now when His disciples had come to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread. Then Jesus said to them, “Take heed and beware of the [a]leaven of the Pharisees and the Sadducees.”

And they reasoned among themselves, saying, “It is because we have taken no bread.”

But Jesus, being aware of it, said to them, “O you of little faith, why do you reason among yourselves because you [b]have brought no bread? Do you not yet understand, or remember the five loaves of the five thousand and how many baskets you took up? 10 Nor the seven loaves of the four thousand and how many large baskets you took up? 11 How is it you do not understand that I did not speak to you concerning bread?—but to beware of the [c]leaven of the Pharisees and Sadducees.” 12 Then they understood that He did not tell them to beware of the leaven of bread, but of the [d]doctrine of the Pharisees and Sadducees.

Galatians 5: You ran well. Who hindered you from obeying the truth? This persuasion does not come from Him who calls you. A little leaven leavens the whole lump. 10 I have confidence in you, in the Lord, that you will have no other mind; but he who troubles you shall bear his judgment, whoever he is.

GLOBALIST EVANGELICALS: HOW DEEP IS THE DECEIT?

KEY LEADERS IN THE EVANGELICAL MOVEMENT HAVE NO HESITATION IN PROMOTING THE “GLOBAL GOALS” OF AN ANTI-CHRIST WORLD SYSTEM. DAVID PLATT IS / HAS BECOME ONE OF THE MORE OBVIOUS AND SHAMELESS.

Rev Thomas Littleton

7/18/2021

David Platt is the popular pastor who heads the “Radical ” and “Secret Church” brands among other movements. Platt is currently the pastor of McLean Bible Church in Virginia. He became popular as a pastor of the troubled Church at Brookhills in Birmingham Alabama when it’s founding pastor became embroiled in a moral failure. Platt’s rise to the senior pastors position of the 4200 member Southern Baptist mega church made him the “youngest megachurch pastor in history” according to the New York Times.

Platts star faded in his short and troubled time as head of the SBC “International Missions Board” during which he made a sudden move into another pastorate at McLean Bible Church well before his exit from IMB. NOW Platt is facing another set of massive controversies as McLean has lost 40% of it’s membership in a recent split which has set off a war with long time members over his embrace of the false “Social Justice” and so called “WOKE” gospel.

PLATT HAS BIGGER PROBLEMS STILL.

BIGGER ISSUES LOOM AS PLATT SHOWS HIS GLOBALIST ALIGNMENTS.

Platt has sold many books and study guides for his various brands like Radical and Secret Church. His first book in the Radical series was featured on the NYT Best Seller list which has become little more than the fruit of clever marketing strategies based on massive pre-publishing purchases by authors and their entities.

Note as well that David Platt gained a position in the Lausanne Movement in 2015 while still heading the IMB as “The Chair of Lausanne’s Theology Working Group”. More on Lausanne’s endorsement of rabid Globalist Sustainable Goals which are intended to lead to Global Currency and Global Governance among other godless outcomes.

David Platt’s upcoming Radical Intensive conference planned for McLean Bible Church in September provides troubling insights into his branding’s sources and goals as part of the “missions strategy”. These sourcing partners will be familiar to anyone following the “Global Sustainability Goals ” of the United Nations and the economic and pandemic policies of organizations like the World Economic Forum.

RadicalIntensive

“Radical Intensive is a two-day event for lead pastors, decision-making senior leaders, and their teams to encourage and equip you to lead your church to make disciples of all nations, particularly in places of most urgent spiritual and physical need.Date: September 27-28, 2021Location: McLean Bible Church, 8925 Leesburg Pike, Vienna VACost: $295 (each subsequent person $195)”

Purpose

“Learn how your church can reimagine resources for the sake of the lost – specifically the unreached.”

“Receive detailed discipleship resources to expose, engage, and empower your congregation in Great Commission work.”

“Discover biblically faithful and practically effective ways your church can play a part in making the gospel known in some of the hardest to reach places on the planet.”

“Gain a vision for how to shift the idea of existing mission fields to mission forces, mobilizing your current reached world mission partners to the unreached.”

“Connect with other like-minded church leaders who are seeking to rectify the Great Imbalance.For those considering the Radical Intensive, we encourage you to read about Radical’s MissionStatement of Faith, and Core Values.”

REALITY BEHIND THE FEEL GOOD MESSAGE ON “GOSPEL MISSION”

The Radical Intensive links to several entities related to the Radical research, data, and partner organizations.

Note Stratus .earth

“A PROJECT BY “

These partners clearly and brazenly source the information and data they are working to HARD SELL through Platt and the Radical brand from radical political, left leaning , globalist entities.

STRATUS -MISSION DATA REIMAGINED

Stratus asserts that it seeks to address “The great Imbalance”

Stratus aims to address the Great Imbalance by helping the church identify the world’s most urgent needs so that it can reallocate its resources more strategically.

“The vast majority of missions resources go to people and places already Reached by the Gospel, while only 3% of missionaries and 1% of missions money are deployed among the Unreached.”

“This is the Great Imbalance.”

“As a result, there are more people without access to the Gospel today than a decade ago.”

“Stratus seeks to equip the global church with fresh vision to accomplish the Great Commission by addressing some of the factors that perpetuate the Great Imbalance. We hope this tool allows the church to better understand what steps will be required to overcome the barriers that prevent needs from being met, spurring informed and collaborative missions strategy.”

Recalibrated Returns

Stratus accounts for barriers that have impeded the progress of the Gospel. This recalibrated ROI promotes a more equitable distribution of resources where needs are the highest.

STRATUS RESEARCH SOURCES INCLUDE:

https://stratus.earth/

According to it’s website Stratus research comes from , among other sources-

The World Economic Forum

The World Health Organization

The World Bank

The United Nations

OPEC

Global Peace Index

CIA World Fact Book

And the only “Evangelical Partner ” for Radical ‘s Stratus is The Joshua Project

Joshua Project

“Joshua Project is an organization focused on providing the Church with data necessary to mobilize pioneer church-planting movements among every unreached ethnic group.”

Linguistic Diversity Index

“Dr. Chase Porter utilized Joshua Project data to create the Linguistic Diversity Index.”

People Group Fractionalization Index

“Dr. Chase Porter utilized Joshua Project data to create the People Group Fractionalization Index.”

The Joshua Project is part of the Lausanne Movement and offers an actual “Prayer Guide” for the fulfillment of the “17 Global Sustainability Goals “of the UN and virtually all the organizations listed above and on the Stratus website as sources.

THE 4/14 WINDOW TO INDOCTRINATE CHRISTIAN CHILDREN AND REDIRECT GOBAL MISSION INTO HANDS OF GLOBALIST.

One shameless goal of the evangelical partners like Lausanne’s David Platt and Ed Stetzer is to target children in the vulnerable and impressionable age range of 4 to 14 years of age.

More information on this wicked set of goals and strategies here:

And here:

“Joshua Project is a Ministry of Frontier Ventures”

Frontier Ventures cites it’s Lasaunne history and work for the recalibration of Global mission on the FV website .

“Ralph Winter’s long career as a missionary, mission professor and “mission engineer” stemmed from his conviction that Christian organizations accomplish more when they cooperate in strategic ways.”

“Winter’s 1974 presentation at the Congress for World Evangelization in Lausanne, Switzerland – an event organized by American evangelist Billy Graham – was a watershed moment for global mission.”

“It was during this presentation that Winter shifted global mission strategy from a focus on political boundaries to a focus on distinct ethnic people groups. “

DAVID PLATT, LAUSANNE, JOSHUA PROJECT ARE STILL AT IT -AND REDEFINING CHRISTIAN MISSION TO BE LOCKSTEP WITH UNITED NATIONS AND OTHER GLOBALIST ORGANIZATIONS .

MINING AND PROMOTING GLOBALIST DATA LIKE THE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM.

WEC is utilizing the negative impact of the Coronavirus to push it’s Great Reset and the Global Warming agenda. A key part of the Great Reset is a global digital currency and global taxation. Platts groups “concern” for “The Great Imbalance” is the perfect platform for urging Evangelicals to buy in to the shift in resources toward Global Goals.

“There is an urgent need for global stakeholders to cooperate in simultaneously managing the direct consequences of the COVID-19 crisis. To improve the state of the world, the World Economic Forum is starting The Great Reset initiative.”….

THE CONTEXT

“The Covid-19 crisis, and the political, economic and social disruptions it has caused, is fundamentally changing the traditional context for decision-making. The inconsistencies, inadequacies and contradictions of multiple systems –from health and financial to energy and education – are more exposed than ever amidst a global context of concern for lives, livelihoods and the planet. Leaders find themselves at a historic crossroads, managing short-term pressures against medium- and long-term uncertainties.”

THE OPPORTUNITY

“As we enter a unique window of opportunity to shape the recovery, this initiative will offer insights to help inform all those determining the future state of global relations, the direction of national economies, the priorities of societies, the nature of business models and the management of a global commons. Drawing from the vision and vast expertise of the leaders engaged across the Forum’s communities, the Great Reset initiative has a set of dimensions to build a new social contract that honours the dignity of every human being.”

GLOBAL DECEPTION IS ANTI-CHRIST

(NOTE: Global goals alignment will also mean leaders, Churches and Christian ministries will participate in ongoing- highly politicized “pandemic responses” and vaccines also aiding globalist in contact tracing and vaccine hesitancy reduction. This has already taken place on a significant scale among leaders like Rick Warren, Stetzer and defrocked Southern Baptist Russell Moore.)

Like no other time in history the church is facing massive deception and seduction. You would think with such plain Biblical warning that most believers would escape the lure of false “global goals” Christianity . But sadly many believers trust leaders like David Platt, Tim Keller, and Ed Stetzer who are all stars of the Lausanne Movement. The idea that Christian ministries would offer a “prayer guide” for the “Global Sustainability Goals” seems unthinkable. Or the assertion that a popular pastor like Platt would resource driving data from partners like the WEF/ UN/ World Bank/ WHO and more to drive recalibration of missions resources to answer a justice agenda might seem like conspiracy theory .BUT the truth is undeniable and facts , in these cases, are stranger than fiction. It should be obvious that these movements and activities represent apocalyptic deceptions warned about by Jesus throughout the Gospels and in Revelation.

Clearly Christians must discern light from darkness in the motivations and outcomes of such men and their movements and they must admit that MANY ARE BEING GIVEN OVER TO STRONG DELUSION.

2 Thessalonians 2:9-12New King James Version

The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, 10 and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, 12 that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

SERMON WHISPERERS- GOD’S JUDGEMENT ON THE CHURCH !

As the JD Greear, Ed Litton sermon PLAGIARISM scandal SERMONGATE escalates into the secular media like Newsweek and Washington Times, a darker reality emerges. Today pulpits in America are filled with carefully crafted language and talking points to move the church toward affirmation of sin.

Rev Thomas Littleton

Just one week into the reign of newly elected SBC president Ed Litton, a youtube video of sermon clips showing his and outgoing president J D Greears sermons on Romans 1. Both use the same introduction, cheesy as it was, along with several illustrations and phrases which exactly match each other. Greears sermon was a year in advance of the Litton sermon but Greear is not credited in the quotes. Litton and Greear both issued statements to cover their rather exposed hinder parts but the they fall short of explaining away the concerns and the charges of plagiarism. By SBC’s own seminary standards on plagiarism both preaches are offenders.

Still the greater reality is not being focused on by most in this brewing disaster is the content of the sermon and its willingness to assert that “The Bible whispers about sexual sin especially homosexuality.” The real issue here is not just that the sermon is copied but that it is making a totally false assertion.

As Litton and Greear and departed ERLC president Russell Moore make MUCH of their assertions of racism and sex abuse / coverups – they and others in church have been on a steady set of false talking points from imbedded activist to minimize the issues related to LGBTQ agenda and its targeting of children and families at every level of society.

STRANGE mixture of focus is it not? And too many in the pews today are willing to let these men get away with what they are doing because they have not zealously embraced a love of the Truth and POWER OF THE GOSPEL. We dare not be robbed -for the sake of all sinners (all of us fallen creatures) of the true promise of transforming power of salvation through the blood of Jesus. Whisperers lose everything and steal it from us when they attempt to mute the truth of God.

WHISPERERS IN THE PULPIT ARE A CURSE FROM GOD

A BIT OF WARNING TO GREEAR AND LITTON FROM JEREMIAH 23

30 “Therefore behold, I am against the prophets,” says the Lord, “who steal My words every one from his neighbor. 31 Behold, I am against the prophets,” says the Lord, “who use their tongues and say, ‘He says.’ 32 Behold, I am against those who prophesy false dreams,” says the Lord, “and tell them, and cause My people to err by their lies and by their recklessness. Yet I did not send them or command them; therefore they shall not profit this people at all,” says the Lord.”

ROMANS ONE :THE VERSES IN QUESTION

What does the text of Romans 1 really say? Below is the full text which Greear/ Litton and a host of affiliated modern day pulpit jockey’s outfitted with canned and regurgitated sermons calling them “God Whispering “.

REMEMBER THE WORDS AND CATCH PHRASES OF GREEAR AND LITTON ARE NOT THEIR OWN -BUT THE WORD OF GOD STANDS ALONEAGAINST THEIR FOLLY.

22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.

24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.

26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the [j]men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.

28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, sexual immorality, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.

LGBTQ ACTIVIST IN ORGANIZATIONS LIKE HRC CALL ROMANS 1 A”CLOBBER VERSE” WHILE THE OUTGOING AND INCOMING PRESIDENTS OF THE SBC CALL IT A “WHISPER “.

Sad to say that LGBTQ activist organizations have a better grasp on the reality of the scriptures strong denunciation and keen focus on homosexual sin, describing it and the consequences of it in unmistakable detail than do two SBC presidents trained in SBC seminaries. So organizations like the Human Rights Campaign have gone to great lengths to persuade Christians that the Bible is “wrong” or “wrongly interpreted” while at the same time shying away from the ultimate “Clobber Verse” Romans 1.

EXAMPLE OF HRC FALSE TALKING POINTS

(False narrative from Human Rights Campaign’s “resource on faith”.

“One of the most enduring ethical issues across Christian traditions is sexual diversity. For many Christians, one of the most frequently first-asked questions on this topic is, “What does the Bible say about attraction to someone of the same sex?”

“Although its unlikely that the biblical authors had any notion of sexual orientation (for example, the term homosexual wasn’t even coined until the late 19th century) for many people of faith, the Bible is looked to for timeless guidance on what it means to honor God with our lives; and this most certainly includes our sexuality.” 

“Before we can jump into how it is that Christians can maintain the authority of the Bible and also affirm sexual diversity,”

GREEAR AND LITTON SOUND MORE LIKE ACTIIVST WORKING FOR THE LGBTQ COMMUNITY TO SALVE THE “COLLECTIVE COMMUNITY CONSCIENCE” THAN TO SPEAK THE WORD OF THE LIVING GOD.

But in a sobering reality check leaders from the SBC and other denominational groups like the PCA have all but TURNED TO MUSH since at least 2009 when HRC / LGBTQ leaders joined “Conservatives” like the SBCs CEO of the Executive Committee Frank Page in the Advisory Counsel of the Obama White House Faith Based Neighborhood Partnerships.

By 2010 a major shift to advance the false narrative of HRC and the APA on “Sexual Orientation” has taken place among evangelical organizations like the Lausanne Movement and The Gospel Coalition – both of which heavily influence the SBC and many other groups.

The real message of Romans 1 is completely overlooked by both of these pulpit whisperers Greear and Litton.

THE CHAPTER REVEALS POWER FOR TRANSFORMATION BY FAITH

-VS- WRATH FOR THE REJECTION OF THE TRUTH.

The revelation of the power of God unto salvation :

The Just Live by Faith

16 “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek. 17 For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.”

The warning of God’s wrath revealed :

God’s Wrath on Unrighteousness

18 “For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is manifest in them, for God has shown it to them.”

TRUTH IS – FALSE PROPHETS WILL NOT SPEAK THE TRUTH AND COORDINATE THEIR FALSE WORDS.

Like the false prophets of Baal during the time of Ahab and Jezebel -modern day pastors and leaders who appease, bow the knee, and kiss the image of modern day idols are kept well by those whose agendas they serve. Men like JD Greear and Ed Litton are not prophets but cowardly activist too ashamed to own their real goals to move the church ever closer toward affirming sin by saying the Bible “Whispers” about it. Tim Keller, Albert Mohler, Russell Moore and many others in this herd of change agents working to secure the interest of cultural outsiders within the churches faith are the worst kind of false prophets .They are willing to hide in orthodoxy while dancing with the devil and playing word games with the Word of God.

God will not put up with such men or their deceit in His house for long.

Jeremiah 23:

16 Thus says the Lord of hosts:

“Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you.
They make you worthless;
They speak a vision of their own heart,
Not from the mouth of the Lord.
17 They continually say to those who despise Me,
‘The Lord has said, “You shall have peace” ’;
And to everyone who walks according to the [g]dictates of his own heart, they say,
‘No evil shall come upon you.’ ”

18 For who has stood in the counsel of the Lord,
And has perceived and heard His word?
Who has marked His word and heard it?
19 Behold, a whirlwind of the Lord has gone forth in fury—
A violent whirlwind!
It will fall violently on the head of the wicked.
20 The anger of the Lord will not turn back
Until He has executed and performed the thoughts of His heart.
In the latter days you will understand it perfectly.

21 “I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran.
I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.
22 But if they had stood in My counsel,
And had caused My people to hear My words,
Then they would have turned them from their evil way
And from the evil of their doings.

23 Am I a God near at hand,” says the Lord,
“And not a God afar off?
24 Can anyone hide himself in secret places,
So I shall not see him?” says the Lord;
“Do I not fill heaven and earth?” says the Lord.

25 “I have heard what the prophets have said who prophesy lies in My name, saying, ‘I have dreamed, I have dreamed!’ 26 How long will this be in the heart of the prophets who prophesy lies? Indeed they are prophets of the deceit of their own heart, 27 who try to make My people forget My name by their dreams which everyone tells his neighbor, as their fathers forgot My name for Baal.

28 “The prophet who has a dream, let him tell a dream;
And he who has My word, let him speak My word faithfully.
What is the chaff to the wheat?” says the Lord.
29 Is not My word like a fire?” says the Lord,
“And like a hammer that breaks the rock in pieces?

MAYBE IT IS TIME FOR ANOTHER SHOWDOWN ON THE MOUNT OF GOD.

1KINGS 18

“Now therefore, send and gather all Israel to me on Mount Carmel, the four hundred and fifty prophets of Baal, and the four hundred prophets of Asherah, who eat at Jezebel’s table.”

20 “So Ahab sent for all the children of Israel, and gathered the prophets together on Mount Carmel. 21 And Elijah came to all the people, and said, “How long will you falter between two opinions? If the Lord is God, follow Him; but if Baal, follow him.” But the people answered him not a word. “

HOW PASTORS ARE BEING INDOCTRINATED AGAINST “AMERICAN CHRISTIAN NATIONALISM”.

WITH LITTLE NOTICE TO MOST, AMERICAN CHRISTIAN CONVICTIONS ARE BEING ERODED FROM WITHIN. THE PUSH OF CRITICAL THEORIES AND “RACIAL DIVERSITY” HAVE MADE AMERICA’S CHRISTIAN SEMINARIES A CAULDRON OF ANTI-AMERICANISM.

Rev Thomas Littleton

No other Biblical “Conservative” seems more committed to undermining American Christian conservatives than Albert Mohler. His leadership at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (SBTS) has given us contrarian former ERLC head Russell Moore, CRT practitioners Curtis Wood and Jarvis Williams, Revoice LGBTQ leader Nate Collins and now an expert in “Historian of American Christian Nationalism; Associate professor of Church History”.

Obviously the “White Christian Nationalism ” is a key ingredient of the “White Privilege/ White Supremacy ” narrative so many weary Christians are hearing railed at them from their own pulpits today. So why not educate and then hire a guy who a is top historian and author on the subject and have him talk both sides of the “problematic issue ” toward a better understanding of it for even MORE pastors who will stand in their pulpits and accuse the Church?

JOHN WILSEY 2015 BOOK ON “AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM”

American Exceptionalism and Civil Religion: Reassessing the History of an Idea 

Paperback – November 22, 2015

by John D. Wilsey (Author), John Fea (Foreword)
“Ever since John Winthrop told his fellow colonists in 1630 that they were about to establish a City upon a Hill, the idea of having a special place in history has captured the American imagination. Through centuries of crises and opportunities, many have taken up this theme to inspire the nation. But others have criticized the notion because it implies a sense of superiority which can fuel racism, warmongering and even idolatry. In this remarkable book, John Wilsey traces the historical development of exceptionalism, including its theological meaning and implications for civil religion. From seventeenth-century Puritans to twentieth-century industrialists, from politicians to educators, exceptionalism does not appear as a monolithic concept to be either totally rejected or devotedly embraced. While it can lead to abuses, it can also point to constructive civil engagement and human flourishing. This book considers historically and theologically what makes the difference. Neither the term nor the idea of American exceptionalism is going away. John Wilsey’s careful history and analysis will therefore prove an important touchstone for discussions of American identity in the decades to come.”

THE GOSPEL COALTIION IS PROMOTING HIS NEW BOOK

A Modernist Christian Nationalist: John Wilsey on John Foster Dulles’s Faith

IF TGC IS PROMOTING YOUR BOOK IT IS A SIGN OF IT’S USEFULLNESS IN THEIR PROGRESSIVE AGENDA.

The book asserts insight into how the cold war work of John Foster Dulless influenced “Christian Nationalism Worldview” and interprets Christianity through an ethical not a theological lens.

“When John Foster Dulles died in 1959, he was given the largest American state funeral since Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s in 1945. President Eisenhower called Dulles—his longtime secretary of state—“one of the truly great men of our time,” and a few years later the new commercial airport outside Washington, DC, was christened the Dulles International Airport in his honor. His star has fallen significantly since that time, but his influence remains indelible—most especially regarding his role in bringing the worldview of American exceptionalism to the forefront of US foreign policy during the Cold War era, a worldview that has long outlived him.”

God’s Cold Warrior recounts how Dulles’s faith commitments from his Presbyterian upbringing found fertile soil in the anti-communist crusades of the mid-twentieth century. After attending the Oxford Ecumenical Church Conference in 1937, he wrote about his realization that “the spirit of Christianity, of which I learned as a boy, was really that of which the world now stood in very great need, not merely to save souls, but to solve the practical problems of international affairs.” Dulles believed that America was chosen by God to defend the freedom of all those vulnerable to the godless tyranny of communism, and he carried out this religious vision in every aspect of his diplomatic and political work. He was conspicuous among those US officials in the twentieth century that prominently combined their religious convictions and public service, making his life and faith key to understanding the interconnectedness of God and country in US foreign affairs.”

ACCORDING TO HIS BIO -WILSEY HAS BEEN AT SBTS AND AT ACTON SINCE 2017

WILSEY ALSO WORKS AT PRINCETON UNIVERSITY WITH THE JAMES MADISON PROGRAM AND ROBERT GEORGE.

This is the another part of the same circles Russell Moore – the now defrocked ERLC leader /Mohler disciple – has operated as “Accuser in Chief ” among evangelical ethicist.

CONCLUSION

“THINKING IN PUBLIC” is one of Albert Mohler’s SBTS promotional programs. He recently interviewed his employee John Wilsey to discuss his book in a podcast. The irony is if we are to take this kind of programing as mere thinking out loud …in public then it might lead up to believe that no strategy exist behind it. Given SBTS ONGOING production of influences and voices counter to convictional Christians in the evangelical and Baptist churches in particular – then Wilsey is just one more newer voice of a change agent working to indoctrinate your next pastor or church staffer.

9 MARKS editor Jonathan Leeman is cut from the same cloth and another voice in the “problematic White American Christian Nationalism” finger pointing circus which has moved center ring to deceive a generation of Christians into believing their national identities have ruined their understanding and public and private practice of their faith.

ENOUGH ALREADY. STOP HIRING PEOPLE “EDUCATED” BY THESE INSTITUTIONS AND DO NOT THINK BEING AN AMERICAN HAS WARPED YOUR FAITH AND YOU ARE THE ENEMY OF CIVIL AND PLURALISTIC SOCIETY.

Christian faith is bigger than American Christianity -no doubt about it. But the Religious Freedom Gospel history in American is not the enemy of the church today .Change agents dressed as theologians ARE at least one enemy of the faith going little detected inside our seminary walls.

Matthew 7

The Narrow Way

13 “Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. 14 [c]Because narrow is the gate and [d]difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it.

You Will Know Them by Their Fruits

15 “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. 16 You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? 17 Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. 18 A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 Therefore by their fruits you will know them.

I Never Knew You

21 “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’

Build on the Rock

24 “Therefore whoever hears these sayings of Mine, and does them, I will liken him to a wise man who built his house on the rock: 25 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it did not fall, for it was founded on the rock.

26 “But everyone who hears these sayings of Mine, and does not do them, will be like a foolish man who built his house on the sand: 27 and the rain descended, the floods came, and the winds blew and beat on that house; and it fell. And great was its fall.”

28 And so it was, when Jesus had ended these sayings, that the people were astonished at His teaching, 29 for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes.

May be an image of 2 people and people standing

Passing a new gavel at the SBC annual was a selfie op for two Baptist leaders.

(NOTE: This author lives in the Deep South and can affirm that such radical misrepresentations as are leveled at Christians by people like Russell Moore and companions playing the race card like Ed Litton. Such ongoing shaming and finger pointing is nothing short of brazen progressive politics in an attempt to divide and divert the church from it’s Gospel mission -even while hiding behind an icon of the Civil Rights movement in his 80s. Russell Moore was defrocked by Baptist leaders going into the SBC annual meetings for 2021 and manipulated the same kind of accusations of both racism and sex abuse at his former bosses and fellow Baptist while they paid him a 6 months severance and bonus package. Moore and Litton and others like them are working to further the kind of racial divide which fuels Black Lives Matter sentiments based on politicizing race for power. Does prejudice exist ? Yes everywhere and along all kinds of lines including race. Are people abused by religious leaders? Yes and much of it is same sex abuse and covered up by religious bureaucracy for a host of reasons. But when it comes to weaponizing race and gender and accusation ….THESE LEADERS WILL STOP AT NOTHING AND THESE LEADERS KNOW NO SHAME.)

BILND TO THE DECLINE AND ERROR BAPTIST LEADERS YUCK IT UP IN CELBRATION

For some reason outgoing SBC President J D Greear is still smiling large after his three year reign as leader of the Baptist produced the largest decline of over 435,000 members in 2019. Greear is a guy trained by the compromising influence of Leadership Network in the Evangelical community. Leadnet coached guys like Greear, Rick Warren, Tim Keller and Ed Stetzer providing them with resources to build mega churches and have large media outlets.

NOW THE GAVEL PASSES TO A NEW PROGRESSIVE LEADER.

MLK/50 was a watershed moment for the opposition to the false Social Justice Gospel in the SBC. The April 2018 ERLC/TGC co-sponsored event actually birthed concerns which gave rise the “Dallas Statement ” by Fall of that years. It was still a buzz of concern during the 2020 annual meetings and culminated are was rearticulated in the massive opposition to Resolution 9 affirming Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality during and after the 2019 Annual Meetings.

Of no real concern to the elites who control the SBC annual meetings, seminaries, missions organizations, the train just kept moving toward the next progressive station as opposition from conservatives was not only squashed but vilified as a “Conservative Insurgence ” or efforts of a “Right Wing Take Over” filled the headlines.

LITTON REPRESENTS THE PROGRESSIVES WING WHO SOME CALL “MODERATES”

Ed Litton is a pastor in South Alabama and took his friend Russell Moore’s MLK/50 lead and invited him and the Racial Wealth Redistribution advocate John Perkins into his region to ensure a further movement of the Social Justice agenda in the Deep South.

Ed Litton@EdLitton · Jun 15, 2018 Pray for Shrink the Divide racial reconciliation Gathering in Mobile, on July 24th -John Perkins & Russell Moore will be our guest speakers. @drmoore

AT MLK/50 MOORE HAD ATTEMPTED TO BROADEN THE RACIAL DIVIDE WITH THE FOLLOWING ACCUSATION OF “JIM CROW WORSHIP”.

“Russell Moore at MLK50: ‘Many Often Chose to Serve Jim Crow and to Rename Him Jesus Christ”


The Gospel Coalition@TGC
“Time and time again in the white American Bible Belt the people of God had to choose between Jesus Christ and Jim Crow. And tragically many often chose to serve Jim Crow and to rename him Jesus Christ.” —@DrMoore#MLK50Conference

BAPTIST PRESS ON THE EVENT “SHRINK THE DIVIDE”

” Shrink the Divide — a July 24 gathering for racial reconciliation — was sponsored by The Pledge Group, encompassing Mobile-area pastors who are seeking “to unify the body of Christ and our communities across ethnic and denominational lines, realizing that racism is a heart/sin problem and only the gospel will bring about such unity.”

“Ed Litton, pastor of Redemption Church in Saraland, Ala., was one of the event organizers. “We could not be more excited and satisfied with this event,” he told The Alabama Baptist. “Our response from those who want to join us in practical ways of shrinking the divide was overwhelming.”

image.png

Litton looks to have found no problem with pushing the divide over social justice by holding the event with divisive Russell Moore ironically named “Shrinking ” it. This was 2018 as the false accusations of radical racism against Evangelicals led Russell Moore to make the slanderous “Worshipping Jim Crow as Jesus ” statement against his fellow Baptist as well as the broader evangelical community.

MORE FROM BAPTIST PRESS ON THE EVENT

” Keynote speakers Russell Moore, president of the Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, and John M. Perkins, a minister, civil rights activist, Bible teacher and author, focused on the Gospel and authentic Christianity.

Moore, who along with Perkins received a standing ovation when he entered the stage, told the crowd “that once you are in the family of God, you are a joint heir with Jesus Christ.”

“If you have really been brought in by this Gospel, then that’s going to change the way you see things, including the way you see yourself in relation to other people,” Moore said.

Issues involving reconciliation “could not be more relevant in the kind of American society that we are in right now that is riddled with division, riddled with racism, riddled with injustice, riddled often with hatred for one another and often infected with a kind of racism and racial animosity that is more subtle than it would have been at other points in American history which means that it is even more dangerous,” Moore said, while acknowledging, “What God has called you to do is going to take time.”

Perkins described the situation as a crisis of belief and owning sin.

“Our crisis is in not understanding authentic Christianity,” he said. “Sin is a rebellion against God and all sin in the end becomes your own. That’s a problem. The problem is that we don’t own our sin. And so we don’t believe. We don’t own our sin and so we can’t forgive. And even now we use our sin as a weapon. I won’t commit to you because you hurt me so bad and you might hurt me again. The problem is a crisis of belief.”

The church must call the world “into a relationship with Jesus Christ and each other,” Perkins said. “And the Christian life must be the outward [manifestation] of the image of Christ.””

LITTONS REPRESENTAITON OF THE RACE ISSUE

“Litton, also speaking at the press conference, added that understanding the Gospel is vital.”

“But the problem is we see a church that is more polarized than the unchurched…. [T]he church holds certain doctrinal beliefs, and we’re not questioning those, but it’s how we apply them,” he said. “We’ve got to return to the basics of seeing another person as made in the image of God, which means they have value and worth and that their skin color is in the beauty of what God made them to be and we accept that person and love that person, and it doesn’t matter if you vote like me, think like me or look like me, but that God placed you here, and I honor you because God made you.”

“Members of The Pledge Group have been working on relationships and getting to know one another for nearly four years.”

DESPITE CAUSING SIGNIFICANT DIVISION MOORE AND LITTON WENT FULL SPEED AHEAD WITH THEIR RACIAL ACCUSATIONS

FASTFORWARD TO 2021 AND MOORE IS SLINGING HATE FROM OUTSIDE

Russell Moore looks to have helped some in the SBC achieved a massive coup by playing the race card against fellow Baptist. A “Whistleblower” /former staffer did a series of “leaked emails” seemingly on Moore’s behalf to animate the fresh accusations against Baptist of racism and sex abuse/ coverups.

Weaponizing race and gender is the top menu item for progressives and their press outlets like Washington Post and New York Times where Moore has “Friends” in the editorial departments. Interfaith liberal Religion News Service also helped animate the organized Moore accusation political effort.

From Capstone Report

BREAKING: Russell Moore attacks sex abuse survivor in letter ‘leaked’ to Leftist media.

Russell Moore implies SBC is filled with racists, does not name any names.

“Russell Moore’s best pals are Leftists in the mainstream press.

You can tell a lot about a man by his friends. You know, Evil company corrupting good morals and all.

You can also tell a lot about a man by those he determines to be enemies. And Russell Moore’s letter shows his enemies list to be filled with conservatives.

In typical, SBC Elite fashion, Dr. Moore does not name names—he makes broad accusations of racism, misogyny and ignoring sexual abuse. And instead of pointing out the culprits, he tries to tarnish the entire Southern Baptist Convention with his slander and innuendo.”

CONCLUSION

Moore and his pals like Ed Litton have now ridden the race card to the top of evangelical power- Litton within the Baptist denomination and Moore from his new role as martyr “attempting to save Baptist from their racial and abuses selves” with the aid of a hateful secular press while the Truth of the Gospel lies fallen in the streets in their wake lies and accusation.

JUST A REMINDER OF WHAT THE GOSPEL REALLY IS

COLLOSIANS 3:

“But now you yourselves are to put off all these: anger, wrath, malice, blasphemy, filthy language out of your mouth. Do not lie to one another, since you have put off the old man with his deeds, 10 and have put on the new man who is renewed in knowledge according to the image of Him who created him, 11 where there is neither Greek nor Jew, circumcised nor uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave nor free, but Christ is all and in all.”

Character of the New Man

12 “Therefore, as the elect of God, holy and beloved, put on tender mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering; 13 bearing with one another, and forgiving one another, if anyone has a complaint against another; even as Christ forgave you, so you also must do. 14 But above all these things put on love, which is the bond of perfection. 15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to which also you were called in one body; and be thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. 17 And whatever you do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through Him.”

FEMINISM RISING IN THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION

” Feminism does not grow movements. It is a barren womb of activism, discontent, and political mood swinging to the far left.”

By Thomas Littleton

6/1/2021

The age-old “Christian equality ” movement and denominational destroyer ,filled with critical theories and feminist theology brazen enough to even seek to redefine the nature of God and the Trinity are part of the current SBC groundswell of errors.Trust it-this is about much more than WOMEN IN THE PULPITS.

NOTE- (This author has been in many different churches and movements including some who have historically ordained women to the pastorate and opened the doors to pulpit ministry. The primary opposition expressed here is the brazen effort to set aside Biblical authority , redefining or challenging it and to craft talking points to appear to be “faithfully” pushing an egalitarian movement mixed with  “conservative theology”. Neither history nor the fruit of these efforts are on the side of those who drive them..no matter what theological posture they assert. In the past those who seek to feed feminism end up belittling and downgrading women and motherhood and family .These NEVER make for unity or happiness on the part of those consumed by them. Besides the lack of spiritual joy and satisfaction, these efforts always result in decline and FURTHER  rebellion by seeding manifold progressive errors and politics within the landscape. Feminism does not grow movements. It is a barren womb of activism, discontent, and political mood swinging to the far left.)

Intersectionality weds all the biblically illegitimate ideologies into one loveless child of activism. From Me Too- to Trans- to Critical Theories -to Race Baiting-to the total downgrading of womanhood and family..this package has it all and is out for blood. Jezebel would be proud.


Feminism now has brought both its historical weaponization of womanhood and a newly found set of talking points and wrapped at least sometimes in the sheeps clothing of conservative theology. It appears that since the rise of The Gospel Coalition, any progressive political action group can CLAIM  to be historically conservative and biblical and still be believed. Perhaps all that is needed today is enough money to afford the latest think tank talking points and some useful allies at the top of the food chain among Southern Baptist and presto -you have validation. Such is the current movement for “Egalitarianism” and the ordination of women in the Southern Baptist Convention. Don’t laugh !  It is not coming …it is already here.


SOME NEW VOICES ARE JOINING THE BROADER EVANGELICAL  PUSH FOR “EQUALITY” -RACE-LGBTQ RIGHTS AND ENDLESS ADVOCACY OF VICTIMHOOD.

These new voices are highly coordinated and working in unison -too much so to trust the long term goals they harbor.
Among them are:

Kristin du Mez ( Seems SBC Presidential candidate Ed Litton is reading her book now and finds it compelling)
Beth Allison Barr

MORE ON THEIR ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSION AND BOOKS IN A MOMENT

RICK WARREN STIRS THE POT.May 11th 2021 headlines in the Washington Post read:

Saddleback Church just ordained three women as pastors. The Southern Baptist Convention says only men should be.

“The SBC added a ban on female pastors to the Baptist Faith and Message, its doctrinal statement, in 2000”

“Saddleback Church, one of the largest churches in the Southern Baptist Convention and home to influential pastor Rick Warren, ordained three women as staff pastors this past weekend, a move that critics say violates the denomination’s statement of faith.

“Yesterday was a historic night for Saddleback Church in many ways!” the Southern California megachurch’s Facebook page announced on Saturday. “We ordained our first three women pastors, Liz Puffer, Cynthia Petty, and Katie Edwards!”

The three newly ordained pastors are longtime Saddleback staff members. Petty has worked with children’s ministry and Edwards has been in youth ministry, while Puffer’s Linked-In profile lists her as a “minister” at Saddleback.

Calling them — or any woman — a pastor is, “at best, unwise and confusing,” wrote Albert Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville.”

WARREN’S TIMING IS SUSPICIOUS AT BEST
This came just in time for the lead up to the June annual meetings of the SBC in Nashville which were a month away at the time Warren took his defiant actions.
More important than the SBC so called “ban” on women pastors – the Bible is very clear on it’s DIRECTIVES- yet this is the VERY authority that is being called into question as we shall see.

BIBLICAL INSTRUCTION AND WISDOM

PAUL SPEAKS TO THE ORDER OF CREATION

And the authority of men in the home.

1st Timothy 2: 

Men and Women in the Church

I desire therefore that the men pray everywhere, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and doubting; in like manner also, that the women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with propriety and moderation, not with braided hair or gold or pearls or costly clothing, 10 but, which is proper for women professing godliness, with good works. 11 Let a woman learn in silence with all submission. 12 And I do not permit a woman to teach or to have authority over a man, but to be in silence. 13 For Adam was formed first, then Eve. 14 And Adam was not deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression. 15 Nevertheless she will be saved in childbearing if they continue in faith, love, and holiness, with self-control.”

PAUL AGAIN SPEAKS TO DIVINE ORDER AND THE “GREAT MYSTERY” WHICH IS THE REFLECTION OF CHRIST AND THE CHURCH REPRESENTED IN MARRIAGE ANF CHRISTIAN FAMILY.

Ephesians 5:30-33

30 For we are members of His body, [a]of His flesh and of His bones. 31 “For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh.” 32 This is a great mystery, but I speak concerning Christ and the church. 33 Nevertheless let each one of you in particular so love his own wife as himself, and let the wife see that she respects her husband.

THE BIBLE HONORS WOMEN’S ROLE IN THE WORK OF THE CHURCH .

Only a fool would advocate for women to have no role outside of motherhood and “keeping at home”. Old and New Testament and church history are filled with women who fervently and fruitfully serve the Lord and the saints. BUT Paul is forbidding the kind of usurping of authority and downgrading of motherhood that has driven the feminist movement and it’s theological stepchildren for decades.

FEMINIST THEOLOGY HAS BEEN THE POLLUTED WELL OF ALL KINDS OF HERESY AND ERROR.

Feminst Theology has birthed error- downgraded womanhood and sought to “Redefine Family” and even the very nature of God wrapping Him in ideals of the “feminine of the Divine”.The LGBTQ movement and the radical politics of the Social Gospel , now marketed as Social Justice have combined with modern “Intersectionality ” to relaunch the movement to the front and center of Baptist life and other denominations.

ALBERT MOHLER IS NO ALLY TO THE OPPOSITION.

Albert Mohler may appear to be leading the effort to oppose the egalitarian movement in the SBC’s – BUT It was long time Mohler protoge’ Russell Moore who was driving the effort  to promote the drafting of popular womens preacher Beth Moore as President of the SBC in 2018 . The idea was shopped around by many until Moore left the Baptist movement and now her campaign manager Russell Moore has been removed from his position atop the Ethics and Religious Liberties Commission.Perhaps the push for Beth was ahead of the curve but 3 years later with the actions of Saddleback and Rick Warren -the movement is thriving and finding momentum.

SOME HISTORY AND DEFINITIONS

Feminist Theology is Interfaith and Universalist impacting most religions and is Liberation Theology at it’s roots.

“Feminist theology is a movement found in several religions, including HinduismSikhismBuddhismChristianityJudaism, and New Thought, to reconsider the traditions, practices, scriptures, and theologies of those religions from a feminist perspective. Some of the goals of feminist theology include increasing the role of women among the clergy and religious authorities, reinterpreting male-dominated imagery and language about God, determining women’s place in relation to career and motherhood, and studying images of women in the religion’s sacred texts.”

JANET FISHBURN IS ONE OF FEMINIST THEOLOGIES FAVORITE THINKERS.

By the early 90s Janet Fishburn labeled the BIBLICAL TRADITIONAL Family an “IDOL”.

Confronting the Idolatry of Family: A New Vision for the Household of God

by Janet Fishburn

“Janet Fishburn is Professor of Teaching Ministry at Drew University Theological School in Madison, New Jersey.”

” By analyzing attitudes about church and family and by illustrating how our “biblical values” are often too closely related to the “American Dream,” Fishburn offers sharp insights into the changes currently underway in our culture, churches, and families. Fishburn proposes a new agenda for the church — an agenda that can create a healthy context for traditional and non-traditional families.”

FISHBURN AND RAUSCHENBUSCH

” Janet Fishburn and Ralph E. Luker have made important contextualized con- tributions to the interaction of Walter Rauschenbusch and the Social Gospel with feminism and Liberation Theology”

” Rauschenbusch’s first major published work, Christianity and the Social Crisis, appeared in 1907. Class divisions and tensions were on the rise during this period and a political movement, known as the Progressive Movement, was attempting to address in political terms what Rauschenbusch was addressing in theological terms.”

INTERSECTIONAL THEOLOGY

A good summary of and look into the function of intersectional theology is found in the 2018  book\by feminist writers Grace Ji-Sun Kim and Susan M. Shaw

Intersectional Theology: An Introductory Guide”

“Intersectional Theology: An Introductory Guide offers a pathway for reflective Christians, pastors, and theologians to apply the concepts and questions of intersectionality to theology. Intersectionality is a tool for analysis, developed primarily by black feminists, to examine the causes and consequences of converging social identities (gender, race, class, sexual identity, age, ability, nation, religion) within interlocking systems of power and privilege (sexism, racism, classism, heterosexism, ableism, ageism, nativism) and to foster engaged, activist work toward social justice. Applied to theology, intersectionality demands attention to the Christian thinker’s own identities and location within systems of power and the value of deep consideration of complementary, competing, and even conflicting points of view that arise from the experiences and understandings of diverse people.”

“This book provides an overview of theories of intersectionality and suggests questions of intersectionality for theology, challenging readers to imagine an intersectional church, a practice of welcome and inclusion rooted in an ecclesiology that embraces difference and centers social justice.”

“Rather than providing a developed systematic theology, Intersectional Theology encourages readers to apply its method in their own theologizing to expand their own thinking and add their experiences to a larger theology that moves us all toward the kin-dom of God.”THE FUTURE OF THE GOSPEL ONCE SUBJECTED TO FEMINE THEORY AND INTERSECTIONALITY

RELIGION NEWS SERVICE AND THE MODERN MOVEMENT ESPECIALLY IN THE SBC
One of the leaders of the modern effort to push the Egalitarian movement in the SBC is Beth Allision Barr. Here is her recent post of her RNS article written to fly in the face the upcoming SBC Annual Convention.

Beth Allison Barr

“Yes, Al Mohler, a storm is coming. But I don’t think it is coming from radical liberals who have fallen down the slippery slope. I think it is coming from the great cloud of female witnesses who have stood firm in their belief God has called them to preach the gospel of Jesus — women like Mary J. Small, Ella Eugene Whitfield and even Addie Davis. It is coming from ordinary evangelical women like me who believe God calls women to preach — not because we have forsaken the authority of Scripture, but rather because we cling so strongly to it.” (Link from RNS article )

“Biblical womanhood–the belief that God designed women to be submissive wives, virtuous mothers, and joyful homemakers–pervades North American Christianity. From choices about careers to roles in local churches to relationship dynamics, this belief shapes the everyday lives of evangelical women. Yet biblical womanhood isn’t biblical, says Baylor University historian Beth Allison Barr. It arose from a series of clearly definable historical moments.”

“This book moves the conversation about biblical womanhood beyond Greek grammar and into the realm of church history–ancient, medieval, and modern–to show that this belief is not divinely ordained but a product of human civilization that continues to creep into the church. Barr’s historical insights provide context for contemporary teachings about women’s roles in the church and help move the conversation forward.”

“Interweaving her story as a Baptist pastor’s wife, Barr sheds light on the #ChurchToo movement and abuse scandals in Southern Baptist circles and the broader evangelical world, helping readers understand why biblical womanhood is more about human power structures than the message of Christ.”
Besides the endorsements of her fellow feminine activist in this roundtable -Beth Allison Barr’s book is endorsed by such activist luminaries as Critical Race Theory leader Jemar Tisby adn LGBTQ advocate and semi uncloseted LGBTQ + activist Baptist/journalist Jonathan Merrit .

Endorsements

“Throughout this book, Barr talks about how her world was transformed. Readers should be ready to have their worlds transformed too. She shakes our shallow historical foundations by revealing how much of so-called ‘biblical’ womanhood reflects the culture rather than Christ. By taking us through her own heartbreaking journey of exclusion from her faith community, she demonstrates the temerity that we need to live the simple, yet disruptive truth that all women and men are created in the image of God. The Making of Biblical Womanhood is about unmaking the harmful patterns of patriarchy in the church, society, and our own hearts.”

Jemar Tisby, CEO of The Witness Inc.; New York Times bestselling author of The Color of Compromise

“This is a book unlike anything I’ve read before. Drawing on her extensive research into the history of Christianity, Barr upends everything you thought you knew about Christianity and gender. This fervent, bold, and sweeping history of Christianity and patriarchy is an absolute game changer. Any future debates will need to reckon with Barr’s contention that the subjugation of women has nothing to do with gospel truth.”

Kristin Kobes Du Mez, professor of history and gender studies, Calvin University; author of Jesus and John Wayne

The Making of Biblical Womanhood has done in one volume what many other books in recent years have done in part: it demonstrates that so-called biblical womanhood is not actually biblical. Though Barr explores and analyzes church history and theology in this well-researched book, it is no boring academic tome. She weaves together personal narrative to remind readers of the humanity of this issue too. This book has the power to help Christians build a faith where ‘there is neither male nor female,’ to liberate women from patriarchal hierarchies, and to heal the pain inflicted by countless churches. I have waited my entire adult life for a book like this, and I am excited that it has finally arrived.”

Jonathan Merritt, contributing writer for The Atlantic; author of Learning to Speak God from Scratch

“It’s time–no, it’s way past time–that we take a critical look at how complementarians have been leaving women leaders and teachers out of church history books and expose the movement of ‘biblical womanhood’ for what it is. I love how Beth Allison Barr’s expertise in medieval church history contributes to the discussion of women in the church. While I may not align completely with Barr’s argument, I affirm with her the need to acknowledge the different ways women have led in church history and should now. I affirm with her that Christ calls women in his church to teach. And I affirm with her that so-called complementarianism isn’t the only option, or even a good one, for those who uphold the authority of Scripture. Read this book and be challenged and encouraged. I’m glad she wrote it.”

Aimee Byrd, author of Recovering from Biblical Manhood and Womanhood and No Little Women

Aimee Byrd’s book description

Recovering from Biblical Manhood and Womanhood

“Recovering from Biblical Manhood and Womanhood presents a critique and an alternative to the push for biblical womanhood and biblical manhood today, focusing on the reciprocity of the male and female voices in Scripture, the covenantal aspect to Bible reading and interpretation, and bearing the fruit of that in our church life.”

About the Book

“While evangelicalism dukes it out about who can be church leaders, the rest of the 98% of us need to be well equipped to see where we fit in God’s household and why that matters. Recovering from Biblical Manhood and Womanhood is a resource to help church leaders improve the culture of their church and disciple men and women in their flock to read, understand, and apply Scripture to our lives in the church. Until both men and women grow in their understanding of their relationship to Scripture, there will continue to be tension between the sexes in the church. Church leaders need to be engaged in thoughtful critique of the biblical manhood and womanhood movement and the effects it has on their congregation.”

“Do men and women benefit equally from God’s word? Are they equally responsible in sharpening one another in the faith and passing it down to the next generation? While radical feminists claim that the Bible is a hopelessly patriarchal construction by powerful men that oppresses women, evangelical churches simply reinforce this teaching when we constantly separate men and women, customizing women’s resources and studies according to a culturally based understanding of roles. Do we need men’s Bibles and women’s Bibles, or can the one, holy Bible guide us all? Is the Bible, God’s word, so male-centered and authored that women need to create their own resources to relate to it? No! And in it, we also learn from women. Women play an active role as witnesses to the faith, passing it on to the new generations.”

“This book explores the feminine voice in Scripture as synergistic with the dominant male voice. Through the women, we often get the story behind the story–take Ruth for example, or the birth of Christ through the perspective of Mary and Elizabeth in Luke. Aimee fortifies churches in a biblical understanding of brotherhood and sisterhood in God’s household and the necessity of learning from one another in studying God’s word.”Kristine Kobes Du Mez book description:
NOTE There is little doubt about the political nature of the movement after reading Ms Du Mez talking points.
“How did a libertine who lacks even the most basic knowledge of the Christian faith win 81 percent of the white evangelical vote in 2016? And why have white evangelicals become a presidential reprobate’s staunchest supporters?

“These are among the questions acclaimed historian Kristin Kobes Du Mez asks in Jesus and John Wayne, which delves beyond facile headlines to explain how white evangelicals have brought us to our fractured political moment. Challenging the commonly held assumption that the ?moral majority? backed Donald Trump for purely pragmatic reasons, Du Mez reveals that Donald Trump in fact represents the fulfillment, rather than the betrayal, of white evangelicals’ most deeply held values.”

“Jesus and John Wayne is a sweeping account of the last seventy-five years of white evangelicalism, showing how American evangelicals have worked for decades to replace the Jesus of the Gospels with an idol of rugged masculinity and Christian nationalism, or in the words of one modern chaplain, with ?a spiritual badass.? As Du Mez explains, the key to understanding this transformation is to recognize the role of culture in modern American evangelicalism. Many of today’s evangelicals may not be theologically astute, but they know their VeggieTales, they’ve read John Eldredge’s Wild at Heart, and they learned about purity before they learned about sex?and they have a silver ring to prove it. Evangelical books, films, music, clothing, and merchandise shape the beliefs of millions. And evangelical popular culture is teeming with muscular heroes?mythical warriors and rugged soldiers, men like Oliver North, Ronald Reagan, Mel Gibson, and the Duck Dynasty clan, who assert white masculine power in defense of ?Christian America.? Chief among these evangelical legends is John Wayne, an icon of a lost time when men were uncowed by political correctness, unafraid to tell it like it was, and did what needed to be done.”

“Trump, in other words, is hardly the first flashy celebrity to capture evangelicals’ hearts and minds, nor is he the first strongman to promise evangelicals protection and power. Indeed, the values and viewpoints at the heart of white evangelicalism today?patriarchy, authoritarian rule, aggressive foreign policy, fear of Islam, ambivalence toward #MeToo, and opposition to Black Lives Matter and the LGBTQ community?are likely to persist long after Trump leaves office.”

“A much-needed reexamination, Jesus and John Wayne explains why evangelicals have rallied behind the least-Christian president in American history and how they have transformed their faith in the process, with enduring consequences for all of us.”

FEMINISM SEEKS HISTORIC CONTEXT- AS DO OTHER ACTIVIST CAUSES
The movement is ever reaching for “historic context ” and Anthropology to lend validity to the activist narrative.
Egalitarian anthropologies
“Titled in accordance with Rosemary Radford Ruether‘s work in Christian theology, Egalitarian anthropologies explore varying views of gender equality in Christianity. These include eschatological feminism, liberal feminism, and romantic feminism. According to Ruether, the commonality among these anthropologies is the belief that gender equality was the original intention of God and that it was somehow skewed by humanity. Ruether goes on to point out that the belief in the ideal of gender equality “leaves room for considerable variation in relating this equality to woman’s present subjugated state in history under patriarchy.”In the preceding statement, Ruether qualifies the need for further exploration into the following anthropologies.”

Liberal feminism

“Liberal feminism rejects the notion that creation established the patriarchy; Ruether asserts that gender equality originally existed, but was distorted by historical injustices against women. This branch of egalitarianism dictates that gender equality must be restored rather than introduced. This restoration will be accomplished by economic, political, social, and systemic reformation. Ruether includes the church in her discussion of social reform, displaying its participation in gender subordination. Ruether continues saying, “The Church as a bearer of redeemed humanity ought especially to represent this equality of men and women in its institutional life. But it does so as a paradigm of what all social institutions should become, not as a representative of an eschatological humanity outside of and beyond history.” Here she distinguishes liberal from eschatological feminism stating that liberal feminism calls for liberation within society, rather than removal from it.”
Beth Allison Barr is a leader of the Christians for Biblical Equality

Mission Statement  CBE International (Christians for Biblical Equality)

“CBE exists to promote the biblical message that God calls women and men of all cultures, races, and classes to share authority equally in service and leadership in the home, church, and world. CBE’s mission is to eliminate the power imbalance between men and women resulting from theological patriarchy.”

Envisioned Future

“CBE envisions a future where all believers are freed to exercise their gifts for God’s glory and purposes, with the full support of their Christian communities.”PATRIARCHY IS CONSTANTLY BLAMED FOR SEXUAL ABUSE IN THE CHURCH.

Helping the Church Prevent Abuse

“I am currently on the journey of recovering from [clergy] abuse and have a God-given passion to help speak into and resolve the issue in our churches…I enjoy the connection with CBE and the resources you provide.”

—Seminary student

“In the US and around the world, 1 in 3 women are victims of physical abuse by an intimate partner, and studies show abuse is as common in the church as in society. CBE is working with church leaders to prevent abuse and create communities where women and men flourish as equals.”
” Right nowwomen aren’t free to use their leadership gifts due to… sexist religious beliefs. Christian patriarchy. misreading Scripture. strict gender roles.”

CONCLUSION

A Truly Biblical view of womens roles goes no where near the promotion of feminist politics nor feminist liberation theology.
THE NEW TESTAMENT HAS WONDERFUL INSIGHT INTO GODLY WOMEN AND THEIR ROLES IN THE CHURCH AND THE WORK OF THE GOSPEL.

ROMANS 16 GREETINGS Paul greeted 28 people in Rome of whom 10 were womenPaul was quick to identify and commend them and was NEVER ignoring women;s roles in the work of the church-even in Rome.
WOMEN IN THE GOSPELS
Martha and Mary portray powerful realities of Jesus interaction with women and their callings to serve and worship.
Mary  Magdaleneis a powerful picture of redemption and bold love and service to Jesus .

Women were called to discipleship is most evident in the Resurrection accounts. All four Gospels show Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the Mother of James and Joses, Salome and the other women disciples accompanying Jesus to his death; anointing and burying his body; viewing the empty tomb; and see Him RISEN FROM THE DEAD.

ACTS 2:

17 “‘And in the last days it shall be, God declares,
that I will pour out my Spirit on all flesh,
and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
    and your young men shall see visions,
    and your old men shall dream dreams;Acts 21:9Phillp the evangelist  ” He had four unmarried daughters, who prophesied”
ADD on biblical case for women and gender roles
1st Corinthians 11:
Now I praise you, brethren, that you remember me in all things and keep the traditions just as I delivered them to you. But I want you to know that the head of every man is Christ, the head of woman is man, and the head of Christ is God.
Titus 22 But as for you, teach what accords with sound[a] doctrine. Older men are to be sober-minded, dignified, self-controlled, sound in faith, in love, and in steadfastness. Older women likewise are to be reverent in behavior, not slanderers or slaves to much wine. They are to teach what is good, and so train the young women to love their husbands and children, to be self-controlled, pure, working at home, kind, and submissive to their own husbands, that the word of God may not be reviled. Likewise, urge the younger men to be self-controlled. Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us”
DANGER AHEAD !

Neither the SBC nor any other denomination will benefit from a rise of feminist ideology, politics or theology in it’s ranks. Why ? Because every insatiable progressive cause comes along for the ride and NO movement has ever begun to pacify and appease it without entering into steep decline and losing sight of fidelity and faithfulness to the Word of God. None.

INDIVISIBLE NATURE OF FREE SPEECH & RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

Few greater threats exist to faith in America at this moment than the shrinking space of freedom of speech in the public square. Whether it is self imposed censorship by bowing the knee to “political correctness” and the fear of man, or the mischaracterization of Christian conviction as “Hate Speech” or an arrogant overreach of social media imposing it’s political and moral views on its users, the verdict is in. Free Speech is no longer popular in America and much of the West. In fact True Christian FAITH and the expression of it has almost never been popular in secular society once its rebellion against God has reached meltdown … yet both are recognized in our Constitution and so are their source. These “rights” come from God Himself. Christians will soon face the choices set upon many who have gone before us. Will we obey God or man and will we go about the business of the Gospel no matter what persecutions that may bring?

Rev Thomas Littleton

5/23/2021

Freedom of Speech is lodged firmly in the 1st Amendment of the Bill Of Rights along side Freedom of Religion and Freedom of the Press. All three have to do with expression by the individual in the exercise of those God GIVEN inalienable rights which the US Constitution recognizes and affirms . Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion are inseparable and cannot be denied without serious impact on individuals and society.

First Amendment

First Amendment Annotated

“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

PROPHETS AND APOSTLES SUFFERED THREATS AGAINST SPEAKING TO AND FOR GOD.

The Name of Jesus Forbidden

Acts 4: 13 “Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were uneducated and untrained men, they marveled. And they realized that they had been with Jesus. 14 And seeing the man who had been healed standing with them, they could say nothing against it. 15 But when they had commanded them to go aside out of the council, they conferred among themselves, 16 saying, “What shall we do to these men? For, indeed, that a [a]notable miracle has been done through them is evident[b] to all who dwell in Jerusalem, and we cannot deny it. 17 But so that it spreads no further among the people, let us severely threaten them, that from now on they speak to no man in this name.”

18 “So they called them and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the name of Jesus. 19 But Peter and John answered and said to them, “Whether it is right in the sight of God to listen to you more than to God, you judge. 20 For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard.”

DANIEL IN THE LIONS DEN FOR VIOLATING PRAYER LAW

Daniel 6:

“Now Daniel so distinguished himself among the administrators and the satraps by his exceptional qualities that the king planned to set him over the whole kingdom. At this, the administrators and the satraps tried to find grounds for charges against Daniel in his conduct of government affairs, but they were unable to do so. They could find no corruption in him, because he was trustworthy and neither corrupt nor negligent. Finally these men said, “We will never find any basis for charges against this man Daniel unless it has something to do with the law of his God.”

“So these administrators and satraps went as a group to the king and said: “May King Darius live forever! The royal administrators, prefects, satraps, advisers and governors have all agreed that the king should issue an edict and enforce the decree that anyone who prays to any god or human being during the next thirty days, except to you, Your Majesty, shall be thrown into the lions’ den. Now, Your Majesty, issue the decree and put it in writing so that it cannot be altered—in accordance with the law of the Medes and Persians, which cannot be repealed.” So King Darius put the decree in writing.”

10 “Now when Daniel learned that the decree had been published, he went home to his upstairs room where the windows opened toward Jerusalem. Three times a day he got down on his knees and prayed, giving thanks to his God, just as he had done before. 11 Then these men went as a group and found Daniel praying and asking God for help. 12 So they went to the king and spoke to him about his royal decree: “Did you not publish a decree that during the next thirty days anyone who prays to any god or human being except to you, Your Majesty, would be thrown into the lions’ den?”

THREE HEBREWS THROWN IN FIRE FOR REFUSING TO WORSHIP A GOVERNMENT INSTITUTED IDOL.

Daniel 3:Then a herald cried [b]aloud: “To you it is commanded, O peoples, nations, and languages, that at the time you hear the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, you shall fall down and worship the gold image that King Nebuchadnezzar has set up; and whoever does not fall down and worship shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace.”

14 Nebuchadnezzar spoke, saying to them, “Is it true, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego, that you do not serve my gods or worship the gold image which I have set up? 15 Now if you are ready at the time you hear the sound of the horn, flute, harp, lyre, and psaltery, in symphony with all kinds of music, and you fall down and worship the image which I have made, good! But if you do not worship, you shall be cast immediately into the midst of a burning fiery furnace. And who is the god who will deliver you from my hands?”

16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-Nego answered and said to the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we have no need to answer you in this matter. 17 If that is the case, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and He will deliver us from your hand, O king. 18 But if not, let it be known to you, O king, that we do not serve your gods, nor will we worship the gold image which you have set up.”

FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND FAITH BREATHE THE SAME AIR.

The TWO and inseparable. 

Todays threats to BOTH include: 

Critical Theories- Identity politics – political correctness -“Civil Society ” # MeToo movement, and Common Good Socialism narratives. Victimhood status of race- gender sexual orientation – oppressed religious minorities . collectivism – secularism- atheism and more.

TRUMP ADMINISTRATION WORKED TO PROTECT BOTH

Trump admin 2017 passed Executive Order over concerns of Free Speech and Religious Freedom.

https://trumpwhitehouse.archives.gov/presidential-actions/presidential-executive-order-promoting-free-speech-religious-liberty/

“in order to guide the executive branch in formulating and implementing policies with implications for the religious liberty of persons and organizations in America, and to further compliance with the Constitution and with applicable statutes and Presidential Directives”

It shall be the policy of the executive branch to vigorously enforce Federal law’s robust protections for religious freedom.  The Founders envisioned a Nation in which religious voices and views were integral to a vibrant public square, and in which religious people and institutions were free to practice their faith without fear of discrimination or retaliation by the Federal Government.  For that reason, the United States Constitution enshrines and protects the fundamental right to religious liberty as Americans’ first freedom.  Federal law protects the freedom of Americans and their organizations to exercise religion and participate fully in civic life without undue interference by the Federal Government. “

“Respecting Religious and Political Speech.  All executive departments and agencies (agencies) shall, to the greatest extent practicable and to the extent permitted by law, respect and protect the freedom of persons and organizations to engage in religious and political speech.  In particular, the Secretary of the Treasury shall ensure, to the extent permitted by law, that the Department of the Treasury does not take any adverse action against any individual, house of worship, or other religious organization on the basis that such individual or organization speaks or has spoken about moral or political issues from a religious perspective, where speech of similar character has, consistent with law, not ordinarily been treated as participation or intervention in a political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) a candidate for public office by the Department of the Treasury. 

“Conscience Protections with Respect to Preventive-Care Mandate.  The Secretary of the Treasury, the Secretary of Labor, and the Secretary of Health and Human Services shall consider issuing amended regulations, consistent with applicable law, to address conscience-based objections to the preventive-care mandate promulgated under section 300gg-13(a)(4) of title 42, United States Code.”

 “Religious Liberty Guidance.  In order to guide all agencies in complying with relevant Federal law, the Attorney General shall, as appropriate, issue guidance interpreting religious liberty protections in Federal law.”

MODERN MARXIST WISH TO CONTROL AND LIMIT FREE SPEECH

Karl Marx followers  on Free Speech

Neo-Marxists … built critical theory as a vehicle for change and began the deconstruction of INDIVIDUAL thought and expression in the West.

 The history of critical theory and its impact on free speech:

“Frankfurt School academics fleeing Adolf Hitler’s Germany transmitted the intellectual virus to the US and set about systematically destroying the culture of the society that gave them sanctuary.”

“America’s freedom of speech was its achilles heel. Critical theorists were given university pulpits and a constitutionally ordained right to preach, grinding its foundation stones to dust. Since 1933 they have been hellbent on destroying the village to save it. the intellectual source of modern identity politics in the United States can be traced to the migration of Critical Theory scholars from Germany to U.S. universities in connection with or after World War II.”

Definition of Critical Theory

Critical theory, Marxist-inspired movement in social and political  philosophy originally associated with the work of the Frankfurt School . Drawing particularly on the thought of Karl Marx  and  Sigmund Freud , critical theorists maintain that a primary goal of philosophy is to understand and to help overcome the social structures through which people are dominated and oppressed. (The expressed of CT goal is “human emancipation” yet the reality is ultimately oppression and bondage.) Since the 1970s, critical theory has been immensely influential in the study of history, law, literature , and the social sciences.”

TODAY SOME SECULAR PROGRESSIVES CALL CULTURAL MARXISM AND ITS INVASION A “CONSPIRACY THEORY “

versobooks.com/blogs/4285-herbert-marcuse-and-cultural-marxism

(This approach is ,in itself, a tool of progressives to deny their efforts )

IMPORTANT !!! FREE SPEECH BECOMES HATE SPEECH 

An endless narrative of victimhood define who is who culturally – who is victim and who is perpetrator is decided in have their cause advanced and who is guilty of oppression. Follow the talking points OR else you are the problem. You are RACIST- HOMOPHOBE- ISLAMA-PHOBE – XENOPHPOBIC – HATER – If you speak your opposing point of view it is.

WHERE DOES THE GOSPEL FIT INTO THIS CIRCUS OF WORDS?

 Truth -especially Gospel Truth is no longer Free Speech  BUT Hate Speech.

Speaking against sin or false religion or religious  ideology or a cult can be twisted into  and becomes hate speech- and must be silenced  for the common good and “Civil Society”

Civility is the premium currency of Critical Theory and Cultural Marxism. ACLU and other organizations defend speech and freedoms of the “MINORITY” while they most often work against the rights of those who do not agree with them and their political and world views.

SOME NOTABLE VICTIMS OF CANCEL CULTURE AND DISMANTLING FREE SPEECH.

Trump – even THE President was silenced by Social Media  and news outlets for speaking truth. He remains banned by social media Facebook and Twitter.

Mike Lindell of My Pillow has been censored and “cancelled” BUT is coming back strong in opposition to it! . So can others.

Some well known people in their words in Freedom of Speech

“What is freedom of expression? Without the freedom to offend, it ceases to exist.” 

Salman Rushdie

“Everyone is in favor of free speech. Hardly a day passes without its being extolled, but some people’s idea of 

it is that they are free to say what they like, but if anyone else says anything back, that is an outrage.”
― Winston Churchill

“Everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but not to his own facts.”
― Daniel Patrick Moynihan

“Arguing that you don’t care about the right to privacy because you have nothing to hide is no different than saying you don’t care about free speech because you have nothing to say.”
― Edward Snowden

“The only security of all is in a free press.”
― Thomas Jefferson

“The framers of the constitution knew human nature as well as we do. They too had lived in dangerous days; they too knew the suffocating influence of orthodoxy and standardized thought. They weighed the compulsions for restrained speech and thought against the abuses of liberty. They chose liberty.”

[Beauharnais v.Illinois, 342 U.S. 250, 287 (1952) (dissenting)]”
― William O. Douglas

William Orville Douglas was an American jurist and politician who served as an associate justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. Nominated by President Franklin D. Roosevelt at 40 was one of youngest justices appointed 

“Without Freedom of Thought, there can be no such thing as Wisdom; and no such thing as public liberty, without Freedom of Speech.”
Benjamin Franklin,

“Let us dare to read, think, speak and write.”
John Adams

“Our liberty depends on the freedom of the press, and that cannot be limited without being lost.” Thomas Jefferson

Quotes on Freedom of Religion

“Let the pulpit resound with the doctrine and sentiments of religious liberty. Let us hear of the dignity of man’s nature, and the noble rank he holds among the works of God…Let it be known that British liberties are not the grants of princes and parliaments.” John Adams

“We hold it for a fundamental and inalienable truth that religion and the manner of discharging it can be directed only by reason and conviction not by force and violence. The religion, then, of every man must be left to the conviction and conscience of every man; and it is the right of every man to exercise it as these may dictate.” James Monroe

“The liberty enjoyed by the people of these States of worshipping Almighty God, agreeable to their consciences, is not only among the choicest of their blessings, but also of their rights.” George Washington

“Religion and morality are the essential pillars of civil society.” George Washington

MORE FROM THE SCRIPTURES ON FREE SPEECH INCLUDING SELF REGULATED MODERATION IN THE EXERCISE OF IT.

(Paul spoke the truth to the Galatians but was aware that people could turn on him for doing so.)

Galatians 4:16 

“Have I then become your enemy by telling you the truth?”

2 Timothy 2:24-26 

And the Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, able to teach, patiently enduring evil, correcting his opponents with gentleness. God may perhaps grant them repentance leading to a knowledge of the truth, and they may come to their senses and escape from the snare of the devil, after being captured by him to do his will.

Matthew 12:36 

I tell you, on the day of judgment people will give account for every careless word they speak,

Proverbs 18:21 

Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruits.

Colossians 4:6 

Let your speech always be gracious, seasoned with salt, so that you may know how you ought to answer each person.

Ephesians 4:29 

Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.

Psalm 141:3 

Set a guard, O Lord, over my mouth; keep watch over the door of my lips!

1 Peter 2:16 

Live as people who are free, not using your freedom as a cover-up for evil, but living as servants of God.

Ephesians 4:15 

“Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ,”

Psalm 19:14 

“Let the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be acceptable in your sight, O Lord, my rock and my redeemer.”

CONCLUSION

Christians who think they are being noble or humble to hold their individual rights with little or no care – do so at the risk of their speech and their faith. Also Christians who do not watch and guard their own words must remember that we are accountable for them. We should choose and place our words well but we should never think it is a small thing when government and society wishes to choose them or silence them for us. Great momentum exist in todays culture to silence opposition to the cultural /political/ and media narratives. Time is short for passive Christians to awaken and arise for the sake of precious freedoms for our children and their faith.

AT LONG LAST BAPTIST RUSSELL MOORE IS GONE GONE GONE.

FEW CHANGE AGENTS IN MODERN EVANGELICALISM HAVE BEEN MORE WELL PLACED & HARMFUL THAN THE NOW “FORMER HEAD” OF SOUTHERN BAPTIST ETHICS AND RELIGIOUS LIBERTIES COMMISSION. MANY BAPTIST CELEBRATE HIS DEPARTURE FOR THE ALREADY USELESS PROGRESSIVE CHRISTIANITY TODAY WHERE HE FITS IN WELL.

Rev Thomas Littleton

Tuesday brought the news that activist “theologian” and Democratic operative Russell Moore was leaving the Southern Baptist Ethics post he has owned for years to take a job at Christianity Today. Moore has insulted and laughed in the face of Baptist who paid his salary for his entire ERLC tenure and he should have NEVER held the position. This news comes about eight years late BUT it is welcomed.

Why Beth Moore's departure from the SBC really matters ...

Russell Moore and his good friend Beth Moore yuck it up in the face of true biblical conservative Baptist.

Moore needed to go and even declared if there was “no room for Beth Moore in the SBC..(presumably as President of the Convention) …then there was no room for him”. Moore has been caught in repeated lies, openly worked with George Sorors funded Immigration Reform with Open Society funded National Immigration Forum and the leftward Trinity Forum.

He found a cozy home in the Obama administration and yet openly hated the successful policies of Trump. Moore found partners among the leaders of the & Campaign efforts to push “Third Way” political and social issue compromise into conservative evangelicalism funded in part by Paul Singer billionaire “vulture capitalist”.

Russell Moore ALWAYS chose the wrong side of every progressive issue. He used the ERLC to push RACE and Critical Race Theory launching the current movement to unravel unity among Christians across racial lines with his MLK/50 conference in the Spring of 2018. He drove progressive causes like refugee care, homelessness, social justice (via his empty rhetoric) into the pro life movement at the time it has been making the greatest strides toward ending abortion.

Moore pushed the Same Sex Attracted “non practicing homosexual” movement into the SBC with his 2014 ERLC conference called “The Gospel, Homosexuality, and the Future of Marriage”. He lied to SBC Dallas messengers when he denied knowledge of the radical Revoice LGBTQAI movement in 2018 even though multiple ERLC Fellows endorsed the movement and one of Moore’s key consultants for ERLC remains both a speaker and board member of Revoice.

Moore has been held in high honor among rebellious younger Baptist intent on pushing back against the conservative politics of their parents who grew up under Carter vs Reagan era policies. Moore fostered and fed their rebellion which put MANY young Baptist on a trajectory of a “theological bi-polar disorder” leaving them as (supposed) theological conservatives while manifesting as possessed social liberals. Confused and abused -this effort left many at the mercy (or in the merciless hands) of an exploitive, progressive and all devouring Cultural Marxist movement seeking to diminish the church and their own influence in every way possible.

BUT ALAS RUSSELL MOORE IS LEAVING

russellmoore.com/2021/05/18/onward

“From the time I was a child, the Lord worked in my life through two institutions. One was my Southern Baptist church, which introduced me to Jesus and taught me how to follow him. The other was Christianity Today, through which I found faithful voices of gospel integrity such as Carl Henry, John Stott, J. I. Packer, Charles Colson, John Perkins, and many others. “

“I am excited today to accept the invitation from Christianity Today to join their team as public theologian and as director of a new venture, the Christianity Today Public Theology Project, which is devoted to cultivating a forward-looking, joyful, consistent gospel witness.”

“I’ve struggled with this decision, because my gratitude for the honor of serving the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission is so deep. As I conclude my time serving Southern Baptists as ERLC president, I am filled with gratitude as well as excitement for the future.”

WHY IS MOORE’S DEPARTURE SUCH GOOD NEWS.?

Russell Moore has been insulting, disrespecting and lecturing Baptist for years. He is not a Baptist ethicist but a progressive Democratic Party operative who still harbors, by his own admission, political dreams. Moore has been a leading “Never/Anti Trump” voice to the point that the SBC leadership were forced to put him on a VERY short leash after the 2016 election and again had to address the fact Moore’s political rhetoric was divisive and (at least twice ) caused 100s of SBC churches to withhold millions in funds from the “Cooperative Programs” missions funding organization.

THE LATTE MAFIA

Moore slid in many other change agents into SBC employment on his staff and trained an effeminate brigade of henchmen to do his bidding .This author dubbed his staff as “the Latte Mafia” We can hold a thin hope that the new leadership will be an actual biblical conservative Baptist and he will bring in an entirely new staff.

PERSONAL NOTE TO RUSSELL MOORE

Dear Russell Moore

I heard you are leaving. We only got to speak on a couple of occasions- very briefly thanks to your protective security crew. I for one am glad to see you go but not because of your progressive politics or of your wearisome and determined change agent status for which you were financially well rewarded… but simply because you were NEVER honest with me or with other Baptist about who you are. In the face of the glaringly obvious reality – you determined to make as many Baptist as possible think that you were one of them- one of us-believed like we do -and cared about what we believe ..about the Gospel.

Your leaving the ERLC and hopefully the SBC is a Gospel Issue . It is good for us and BEST for you. Thank you for your decision whether you made it alone or had help from those who have finally held you to some accountability. Russell we will all stand before a higher judge one day .We should all be living in light of that reality and openly/ honestly living in the light of His gaze. 2 Cor. 5:10 “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.” Praying for you.

MOST INTERESTING AND REVEALING PARTNER IN THE EVENT WAS NONA JONES

Nona Jones is-

Head of Faith-Based Partnerships

Facebook

Aug 2017 – Present3 years 10 months

“Responsible for helping drive the product strategy undergirding Facebook’s mission of giving its 2 billion members the power to build community and bring the world closer together by building strategic partnerships between Facebook and communities of faith, communities of color and youth-development organizations to broaden their reach and deepen their impact across Facebook’s platforms and products as well as offline.”

Nona is described on her website as:

AUTHOR | ENTREPRENEUR | SPEAKER | PASTOR | EXECUTIVE

RUSSELL MOORE’S FACEBOOK PARTNER AND HER HISTORY WITH FB

“Facebook may look shiny and successful on the outside (the company is worth more than $600bn) but its reputation has taken a hit in recent times. There have been ongoing privacy concerns, most notably the Cambridge Analytica scandal. When the evangelist Franklin Graham had his account deactivated in December 2018, there were claims the company was policing speech. Some were even suspicious that Facebook was harbouring anti-Christian sentiments.”

“Hiring the outgoing, personable and relatable Nona Jones was a smart move by Facebook, an organisation that has recently come to understand the importance of its Christian constituency. The story of how this 37-year-old businesswoman and pastor with no previous tech experience became Facebook’s global director of faith-based partnerships is compelling.”

LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR CAMPAIGN LEADERSHIP AND FUNDING ?

The Love Your Neighbor campaign looks to be part of the funding from the Biden Administrations $400 billion budget for promoting the vaccines in the recent $1.9 Trillion dollar Covid spending bill.

‘Loving thy neighbor:’ New ads urge conservative men with vaccine doubts to get their COVID shots”

This effort is overseen by the “Ad Council” and the “Covid Collaborative”

ITS GOAL? TO PROMOTE VACCINES TO VACCINE HESITANT CONSERVATIVES.

“WASHINGTON – The federal government and nonprofits are unveiling ad campaigns to counter vaccine hesitancy, emphasizing educational partnerships at the grassroots level.”

“The Ad Council and COVID Collaborative will unveil a vaccine education campaign specifically targeting conservative and religious Americans, who polls have shown are especially vaccine-hesitant populations. The program is a part of the partnership’s larger effort in educating the public on the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.”

“Conservatives are not a monolithic group,” John Bridgeland, founder of the COVID Collaborative, told USA TODAY. “There is a large moveable middle of those who may get vaccinated if they haven’t gotten it already.”

AD COUNCIL

https://www.adcouncil.org/covid-vaccine

“The Ad Council and COVID Collaborative are leading a massive communications effort to educate the American public and build confidence around the COVID-19 vaccines.”

“Guided by the leading minds in science and medicine and fueled by the best talent in the private sector, the COVID-19 Vaccine Education Initiative is designed to reach different audiences, including communities of color who have been disproportionately affected by COVID-19.”

“Under the umbrella of the “It’s Up to You” campaign, we will ensure that Americans have accurate and timely information to answer their questions and concerns about vaccine side effects, efficacy, and clinical trials. Our goal is to shift the public mindset from vaccine concern to vaccine confidence.”

THE OPPORTUNITY

“Extensive research shows pervasive reluctance around the COVID-19 vaccines among the American public—with many Americans reporting they will not get the vaccine or have significant questions.”

“Overall, 40% of the general public falls into a movable middle – people who are hesitant to get a vaccine but are open to learning more. They want to know the vaccines are safe—and that the benefits outweigh the risk.”

CONCLUSION

Once again Southern Baptist chief ethics guy who heads the ERLC for the Biblically conservative Southern Baptist base proves he is out of touch with the average Baptist and deeply entangled with progressives who wish to dissuade and separate them from their Biblical convictions and conservative politics. Moore is reaching with Facebooks faith Partner for influencing the “Moveable Middle”.

Russell Moore’s job appears to be to manipulate as many Baptist and evangelicals out of the mushy middle and into the collapsing left’s global agenda.
