WHY THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST MOVEMENT IS DOOMED TO A FAILED “DYSTOPIAN” FAITH.

SOUTHERN BAPTIST HAVE BEEN MANIPULATED FOR YEARS BY IN HOUSE ACTIVIST, THEIR OWN PRESS, FEMINIST, LGBTQ AND RACIAL ADVOCATES AND NOW BY THEIR OWN LEADERSHIP TO SETTLE A #METOO MOVEMENT DEMANDING JUSTICE- DE&I -REFORMS. DISPENSING “JUSTICE” DEFINES THE SBCs NEW FAITH & MISSION.

Rev Thomas Littleton

6/24/2022

Many are asking where their once conservative denominations or movements are landing after the present “reforms” and pressures from #MeToo accusations, global inequity assessments, systemic racism metrics, LGBTQ+ appeasements and the general push to subject Christian faith to the winds of change and the whims of change agents.

ANSWER? The institutional church in America and beyond is breathing it’s last. While some hope for a heaven sent awakening, Revival is not likely to come for the institutions and is only possible biblically and historically after those institutions are gone and much harm and loss brings true deep and widespread repentance.

THE DYSTOPIAN FAITH OF THE NEW CHURCH

TRUE CHRISTIANS WILL BE ISOLATED AND FORCED TO PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM THE TOXIC DOCTRINES OF THE DYSTOPIAN & BARREN CHURCH LANDSCAPE OR BOW THE KNEW TO THE NEW CONCEPTS OF TRUTH.

THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION WENT INTO ANAHEIM AS A COMPLEMENTARIAN MOVEMENT AND EMERGED AS AN EGALITARIAN ONE

Thanks to the 2021 strategically and intentionally timed ordination of 3 women for “pastoral ministry” (directly in conflict with the “Baptist Faith and Message “) by Rick Warren- an “investigation” had been ordered. That investigation would be a round one field exercise for the newly “Repurposed Credentials Committee ” ( more on that in a moment) to investigate Saddleback and Warren for the women pastors ordination. The Report from the Credentials Committee was to be made at the 2022 annual meetings. Meanwhile June 2022 , just before the Convention, Warren announced his own Pastoral successors- a Pastoral COUPLE – he and she pastors to replace him at Saddleback. So for the second year in a row Warren launched his intentionally controversial “news” the week before the convention.

REPURPOSED CREDENTIALS COMMITTEE CAN’T DEFINE “PASTOR”

At the 2022 meetings the “Repurposed Credentials Committee” gave its Report on the 2021 investigation of Saddleback ordination of Women and decided it could not and would not condemn Warren and Saddleback’s clear violation of the simple language of the Baptist Faith and Message on ordination and gender roles in ministry because it was “not sure about the meaning of the word PASTOR” .

The Credentials Committee Report was followed by the sudden apparition of a extremely rotund and self inflated Rick Warren touting his accomplishments and contributions to the the SBC and declaring women ordination controversy to be a “secondary issue “.

THE MAGIC OF CELEBRITY PASTORS

And just like that the SBC is now egalitarian. If the reader does not understand why this is a problem on the eve of the SBC bearing the full brunt of the DE&I reforms and #MeToo activism by feminist and LGBTQ operatives- then look at what these forces have done and are doing to other denominations and movements.

Thanks to its own leadership -the SBC is now fully in the hands of these politically and culturally driven forces.

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST IN 2022 -A TIMELINE

NOTE- ALL of the below actions and decisions were “top down” SBC leadership manipulations but they are referred to repeatedly as “the will of the messengers”.The ongoing operations of top down manipulations have become glaringly obvious and look more like a trail of bread crumbs leading the SBC into the hands of those demanding an end to its conservative biblical stance on women’s roles in ministry, LGBTQ and as yet pending class action lawsuit settlements on sex abuse claims. Following all this years machinations is a coming push for racial reparations. Just wait and see.

The points below recount how Baptist have been led along by their own leaders to put in motion and empower their own demise .

  • Baptist were “exposed “for sex abuse and covering it up in time for 2018 Convention in Dallas after #MeToo movement had taken out Conservative Resurgence Baptist icon Paige Patterson in what Albert Mohler then called “The Wrath of God Pour Out- The Humiliation of the Southern Baptist Convention.”
  • Newly elected SBC President J D Greear and Russell Moore of the eRLC set up an conference and marketed “resources” to “address abuse” from which basically nothing came about
  • SBC messengers at the 2019 Annual meetings were led to vote in the “Repurposing of a Credentials Committee ” from handling annual registration of messengers to the annual meetings into a sort of “search and destroy” centralized power mechanism for identifying and dealing with non compliant, formerly autonomous churches and their operations and ordination of ministers IF they were deemed to be out of line with coming reforms over sex abuse, race , LGBTQ issues and more.
  • In 2019 SBC messengers were led vote in a Resolution (9) to affirm the use of Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality as “useful analytical tools ” along with the Gospel. This gave place to the needed activist metrics for projecting systemic guilt on race, gender and other perceived victims across the SBC for the sins of a few.
  • In May of 2021 the long time subversive Democrat Party machine activist Russell Moore was finally tossed out as head of the ERLC though his henchmen remain in charge. Another of his departed henchmen “leaked ” a letter of Moore’s accusing the SBC leadership in the Executive Committee of “covering up Sex Abuse” (recharging the floundering #MeToo movement) and of widespread “racism ” across the SBC.
  • Messengers were again led to call for and vote in a new Sex Abuse Task Force to “investigate ” the accusations of Moore in the “leaked letter”. This Task Force has since :
    • 1- Hired Diversity Equity and Inclusion driven Guidepost Solutions operated by a staff of former DHS/ FBI/ Intelligence Community government compliance officers.The SBC Task Force then used as leverage of the supposed “will of the SBC Messengers” to force the SBC Executive Committee to waive Attorney/ Client Privilege ,forcing out significant numbers of the Executive Committee , off setting and reshaping the balance of power while robbing accused conservative members of legal representation.This action also caused the law firm which had represented the SBC /EC for some 68 years to resign. In the final Reports few left leaning structures and individuals were NOT part of the targeted class in the GuidePost /Task Force report. It is impossible to see this move as anything other than the outcomes make it appear.
    • 2- The Task Force hired its own law firm which is a long time partner of LGBTQ organization Human Rights Campaign “developing litigation strategies” for the advance of LGBTQ Equality”. (In all 5 new law firms -all very pro HRC-very pro LGBTQ- very pro DE&I filled in the voids left by departing representatives. The new Executive Committee law firm even sponsors the Nashville Pride Parade where the SBC EC offices are housed in the SBC headquarters.
    • 3. Guidepost Solutions own Public Relations firm boast in it’s DE&I statements: “We don’t work with businesses or individuals whose actions or beliefs we believe undermine gender, LGBTQ+, ethnic, racial or social equality.”
    • Now the “findings” of the Sex Abuse Task Force and the “Reforms” of the Guidepost Solutions “Investigation” will be implemented and overseen by yet another Task Force . The Abuse Reform Implementation Task Force will now take charge with seed money funding provided by Send Relief which is the SBCs NAMB/IMB partner in Faith Based Partnerships funding grants with government agencies. These partnerships demand non discriminatory policies in the distribution of goods and services they partner with government agencies with government funding to provide. Such partners are also unable to engage in ANY explicitly religious activity like prayer, bible study, worship, or “Proselytism” aka evangelism aka The Great Commission which Southern Baptist leaders still tout as the vision and mission of the movement. In actuality this is no longer the case. THIS is the hard reality behind all of the monkey business going on in the SBC and other movements and ministries involved in these partnerships with the government and as NGOs in the global humanitarian sphere. For Baptist, fixing it’s “historic and systemic racism” will be next after the #MeToo lawsuits.
    • Send Relief has committed $4 million in seed money to the new fund for victims and has committed to set up part of the implementation.Baptist ARE being told this money is NOT part of their missions funding donations -nor is it being told WHERE THE MONEY IS COMING FROM INSIDE SEND RELIEF which happens to be one of the entities most directly involved in Faith Based Partnerships which require the “Reforms” and of course there is more money where that came from.

Messengers in the SBC went to Anaheim CA. Annual Convention to place an exclamation point on a 13 year process of culture change which began when SBC Executive Committee CEO Frank Page joined the 2009 Obama White House Faith Based Neighborhood Partnerships Inaugural Advisory Board to set the SBC in the stream of government grants and partnerships. There Page joined activist from Human Rights Campaign, ARCUS, progressive Muslims, feminist, Democratic activist, and host of change agents to find “common ground for the common good” and access a plenty to tax dollars. Non Discrimination Policies were and remain front and center in these partnership and the Gospel and biblical order and fidelity to it’s own “Baptist Faith and Message” would have to take a back seat and be eventually dismantled .

“Community Development”- “FEMA Disaster Relief”- Muslim and Latin American Immigration resettlement- etc.

“The particular faith that motivates each of us can promote a greater good for all of us.

— President Barack Obama
 

The White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships forms partnerships between government and non-profit organizations, both secular and faith-based, to more effectively serve Americans in need. The Office does so in ways that are consistent with the guarantees of the U.S. Constitution and other laws.

“The White House Office of Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships coordinates Centers for Faith-based and Neighborhood Partnerships  in various federal agencies. Each Center forms partnerships between its agency and faith-based and neighborhood organizations to advance specific goals.”

“For example, the Department of Labor (DOL) Center forms partnerships between DOL and community-based groups to better integrate those groups in job training and workforce development programs. The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Center helps to link DHS with community-based groups to address disaster response. Similar efforts are being implemented through Centers at the Departments of Agriculture, Commerce, Education, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Justice, and Veterans Affairs as well as the Small Business Administration, Corporation for National and Community Service, US. Agency for International Development and the Environmental Protection Agency.”

THE KISS OF DEATH IS BEING UNEQUALLY YOKED WITH UNBELIEVERS …WITH AND AGENDA

FBP PARTICIPATION IS A MAJOR REASON THE SBC IS BEING “REFORMED ” BY METOO AND CULTURAL WINDS.

This decision by SBC leadership cast a cloud over the SBC’s past which left it to be portrayed like an outmoded dystopian landscape filled with injustice -racism-homophobia-discrimination against women and minorities-and “right wing “voting patterns. All that was needed to end this massive white male dominated sect in America was a narrative of “white privilege” – xenophobia – oppression and victimization of women- gay hatred – white nationalism, tribalism, right wing extremism , insurrectionist , etc etc etc.

Add the #MeToo movement in 2018 and Baptist were facing their transformation from Conservative movement (among its membership at least) to an egalitarian , diverse , equitable, and inclusive partner is community transformation and global citizenry .Can the Southern Baptist be Saved is the question on both sides of the aisle. Not likely but never impossible with God.

FIRST THE REMEDY

Psalm 127:1 Except the LORD build the house, they labour in vain that build it: except the LORD keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.

How can we allow the winds of culture or the predetermined outcomes sought by activist agents of change instruct us on how CORRECT WRONG and to follow the Lord faithfully in His house? Baptist leaders in particular would have to come clean and stop the hustle of their members and messengers and get out of corrupt partnerships and funding. NOT likely to happen. It will NOT happen without a breaking and deep humility and repentance toward God from compromise – not a public show of repentance to appease activist.

WE NEED REPENTANCE -DEEP- FAR- AND WIDE

HOSEA 10:12 “Sow for yourselves righteousness;
Reap in mercy;
Break up your fallow ground,
For it is time to seek the Lord,
Till He comes and rains righteousness on you.”

AT THE MOMENT THE SBC HAS NO ONE LEADING THE MOVEMENT IN THIS BIBLICAL DIRECTION.

So what is left for the movement but to become a landscape littered with self identified victims and activist demanding justice for themselves and all those represented by the letters in the big DE&I tents ? And who will get “justice”? Only those who politics and points of view fit the future vision for the rebranded movement.

THE FALSE FUTURE OF CHURCH TEACHING

ONLY those who own and possesses the right to “apply” words like Justice and Equity – or Diversity Equity and Inclusion to the church are the ones who own and determine it’s future . Neither the Living God nor His Word are consulted in this grand scheme of how things ought to be.

Southern Baptist descended into their 2022 Annual meeting fully prepped by its leadership to collapse into the hands of those who will dismantle their faith.

After 5 years of relentless assault from the #MeToo accusations, disparity of the Biblical stance of most Baptist, and inside activist leaking emails and writing Washington Post and NY Times article the narrative is now fixed.

The portrait of current “DYSTOPIAN CHURCH” is now complete.

Now comes the flooding in of a broader agenda to bring REFORM to the faith of Baptist (along with every other faith movements followers in America) on gender roles in church, the nuclear family, race relations, sexuality , LGBTQ+ and in answer to the general projections of “inequity” , “systemic discrimination” , “homophobia”, tribalism, white privilege, and nationalism in the church. THIS is the landscape we have been told exist .

NOTE- ABUSE DOES EXIST ! BUT “JUSTICE” IS ONLY FOR SOME VICTIMS

FIRST PLEASE NOTE -abuses of all kinds have existed and have at times been covered up in the church. The SBC has a long established “good ole boy” network at the top tier of leadership in its Nashville national offices and in some of its primary institutions. Real Victims need help and need to know that future abuse is being prevented. However the current trending methods and partners to answer the problem of abuse is more often politically and agenda driven and performed by agents who do not share their common faith or values of Christian conviction. (MORE on this later) This ongoing situation has only been made worse, not by the conservative politics of Resurgence era Baptist, BUT by the bipartisan corruption and compromise inspired by dirty money from Faith Based Partnerships involvement since at least 2009.

Government money going into church ministries ,including almost all levels of the SBC is the REAL root of the problem.

Corruption, not conservative convictions is at the root of the problem and since the new REFORMS are being enacted by secular partners with deep ties to the government and inorder on many levels to assure compliance by Baptist leaders to “non discrimination” and Diversity Equity and Inclusion policies so assure GREAT FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES in the faith based models- more corruption and more money is certainly unlikely to stem any abuses or reenforce greater accountability .It never has so why would it now in “the present crisis”?

SAMPLES OF THE DOMINATE BAPTIST NARRATIVE

In a June 24th piece in hard left interfaith Religion News Service – Baptist #MeToo activist and former Liberty University / Jerry Falwell Jr employee Karen Swallow Prior asked the question ” Can the Southern Baptist Convention Be Saved? “. Prior must certainly be hoping on some level that the movement will survive and remain economically viable enough to sustain her present position as a professor in SEBTS one of the MORE -WOKE SBC seminaries. Prior remains not only an activist employed within the SBC but one of a herd of activist journalist fueling controversies and making demands of the SBC .

PRIOR RECOUNTS THE BAPTIST #MeToo HISTORY AND TAKES A JAB AT SLAVERY

“The SBC is not the only place, nor the only denomination, facing the #MeToo #ChurchToo problem, of course. Yet, the SBC plays an outsized role within the larger culture because of its present as the largest Protestant denomination in America and its past as a denomination founded on the defense of the evil institution of human slavery.”

PRIOR ALSO CALLS FOR HUMILITY AND ACCEPTANCE OF BAPTIST COLLECTIVE FATE

“The 300-page report detailing failure after failure to act is both “heartbreaking and horrifying,” Frank said. But, he continued, “The question before us today is — is it humbling?”

“Quoting the New Testament’s Letter of James, Frank (Cariman of the SATF) offered the assembly this challenge: “’Humble yourselves before the Lord.’ Not pray for humility, but do it. The pattern in the Bible is either we humble ourselves or God will humble us, by putting us in a humiliating circumstance.”

“The sex abuse report has indeed been a humbling circumstance for the Southern Baptist Convention. Of course, the greatest devastation has been borne by those who have endured the abuse, and understanding this, the messengers overwhelmingly approved the recommendations.”

“It was a momentous decision. Yet it was a decision years overdue and one that represents just one step in a long journey the denomination faces in better handling sexual abuse cases in its midst.”

BRUCE FRANK, HEAD OF THE TASK FORCE ON GUIDEPOST PR LGBTQ STANCE

The statement below is from a tweet during the SBC 2022 meetings by mega-church pastor and Baptist Sex Abuse task Force Chairman Bruce Frank. The flawed reasoning and utter ignorance is dumbfounding. Think about -the sexual and gender standards of a company in whose hands Baptist have placed themselves, their past and their future compliance “IS NOT AN ISSUE”.

“The issue is not what Guidepost thinks about LGBQ– the issue is what do Southern Baptists think of sexual abuse that is the issue. “

@BruceFrank1

PRIOR ,RUSSELL MOORE, AND OTHER SBC ACTIVIST CIRCLE THE SBCs REMAINS

Reports from Lifeway Research, the SBC number crunchers admitted this year that the supposed 14 million strong SBC membership is actually down from about 5 million regular attendance on any given Sunday morning to 3.6 million. These numbers tell the sad story of universal decline in the Christian churches and denominations in America. Those movements like the PCUSA and Episcopal who have led the way 30-40 years ago in becoming more “Diverse -Equitable- and Inclusive are in a much steeper state of decline and many nearing unsustainable levels of attendance. Activist themselves like Karen Swallow Prior find themselves on a sinking ship. Russell Moore- her former boss at the Baptist Ethics arm has already abandoned ship.

CONCLUSION

The SBC with its in house activist and outside partners and dark money have only hastened their own demise by handing their bank accounts and their future over to the REFORMS demanded by who seek its demise as a Biblical movement. The idols of modern culture are now firmly and officially installed in every corner of the SBC . It cannot escape the CORRUPTION or the judgement which always follows these kind of poor decisions and deceptions.

TEMPLETON TARGETS CHRISTIAN EDUCATION WITH INTERFAITH DIALOG & SCIENCE /FAITH MERGER IN MULTI-FRONT ASSAULT & GLOBAL DECEPTION.

BIOLOGOS AND MANY OTHERS HAVE USED TEMPLETON CASH FOR YEARS TO PUSH ITS DESIRE TO MERGE SCIENCE AND FAITH ACROSS ALL FAITH COMMUNITIES .NOW TEMPLETON EXPANDS ITS FOCUS TO ADD MULTI-FAITH/INTERFAITH DECEPTION TO FURTHER THE EFFORT.

Rev Thomas Littleton

6/15/2022

Few seem to be paying close attention to rapidly developing trends and deceptions in Christian education. So the new role which both “multi-faith dialog and theistic evolution (the deceptive merger of evolution and Christian theology ) are playing TOGETHER likely remains all but undetected. Templeton’s various entities are promoting a massively funded movement to pour BOTH tactics in order to own the discussion in Christian education and among ALL faiths -but especially Christianity in the West.

Brannon Howse of WVW TV/Radio , Lindell TV , and Frank Speech recently forwarded this author an announcement from Fuller Seminary about its 2022 Grant from Templeton Religion Trust for:

FULLER SEMINARY RECEIVES GRANT FOR MUSLIM-CHRISTIAN RESEARCH

“Initial Publication January 24, 2022”

Details read like an interfaith horror story :

“Fuller Seminary is pleased to announce that it has received a grant from the Templeton Religion Trust to conduct research into Muslim and Christian approaches to deep political and religious difference. Matthew Kaemingk and Shadi Hamid will lead the project within Fuller’s newly-established Mouw Institute of Faith and Public Life.”

THE CENTERS NAMESAKE

(This new Center is named for long time Fuller compromiser Richard Mouw-“Richard J. Mouw returned to teaching in the position of professor of faith and public life after 20 years as president of Fuller Theological Seminary (1993–2013). A philosopher, scholar, and author, he served as Fuller’s provost and senior vice president”

“The $234,000 grant is funded through the Templeton Religion Trust’s Covenantal Pluralism Initiative, which aims to promote religious freedom and literacy as well as the virtues of interfaith engagement across deep religious differences. The goal is to cultivate new forms of multi-faith interaction that move beyond mere tolerance into deeper forms of substantive and meaningful exchange.”

NOTE THE INSPIRATION AND SPRINGBOARD OF “MUSLIM IMMIGRATION”

“Amos Yong, dean of the School of Mission and Theology, said, “This project springs off Dr. Kaemingk’s groundbreaking Christian Hospitality and Muslim Immigration in an Age of Fear, which continues to engage contemporary questions and concerns in colleges, universities, and churches across North America and beyond. We are delighted that he will get to multiply his efforts with Dr. Hamid and are eager to welcome the fruit of their collaboration.”

(The 2018 book which inspired the Fuller collaboration does not bother to talk about Refugees or resettlement .Instead it openly embraces the goal of “MIGRATION”)

“The relationship between Islam and Christianity is surely a matter of global concern,” said Fuller Seminary President Mark Labberton. “This exciting project represents an important new chapter in Fuller’s long history of scholarly engagement with Islam. We’re all looking forward to the generative research and discussions that will emerge from the collaboration between Matthew Kaemingk and Shadi Hamid.”

(RETHINK RELIGION’S ROLE IN PUBLIC LIFE..RED FLAGS ABOUND)

“Hamid, an expert on Islam’s role in contemporary politics, is a leading voice on the need to rethink religion’s role in public life. He is the author and editor of four books, including Islamic Exceptionalism: How the Struggle Over Islam is Reshaping the World, which was shortlisted for the 2017 Lionel Gelber Prize for best book on foreign affairs. In 2019, Hamid was named one of the world’s top 50 thinkers by Prospect magazine.”

“Hamid. “In a time of increasing secularization and fragmentation, there is an urgent need for Christians and Muslims to think creatively about what religion can teach us about living with deep difference. We are not the same. Matthew and I have profound theological differences, but we don’t consider our differences to be a bug in our work. We consider them a feature.”

FULLERS ANNOUNCEMENT COMES AS MULTI-FAITH PARTNERSHIPS WITH MUSLIM WORLD LEAGUE BY NAE /WORLD RELIEF AND BIO-LOGOS HAVE UPPED THEIR GAME WITH TEMPLETON GRANTS TO MERGE FAITHS & MERGE SCIENCE AND ALL FAITHS.

The National Association of Evangelicals head Walter Kim , a supposedly conservative PCA minister, attended a Muslim lead Inter-faith “shared values ” forum in Saudi Arabia which was launched by World Muslim League reported to be a significant Muslim Brotherhood organization.

FULLER GRADUATE RICK WARREN IS THE PREMIERE BAPTIST PROPHET OF CHRISLAM AND INTERFAITH DIALOG

Southern Baptist Rick Warren has long been on the cutting edge of Interfaith/ Multi-faith errors and false teaching. So has the SBC with the use of the heretical ideology behind the “Camel Method “. Warren’s PEACE Plan has been the go- to partner of globalist interest like the United Nations hoping to meld all faiths into the global interfaith melting pot and the UNs “New Age” spirituality of the future. Warren’s PEACE NGO advocates working with the “man of peace” regardless of his specific faith affiliation .This loose approach is applied in Warrens take on international “community development” in the name of Christian mission.

Southern Baptist newly elected President Bart Barber was quick to extend an endorsement of Warren’s efforts to promote Islam by seeing to it that American Christians support Religious Freedom for Muslims in America. This was virtually Barbers first public statement after becoming SBC President in Anaheim CA earlier this week. (Note this is also where Warren made a surprise visit to bolster the SBC well planned scheme to move the SBC into egalitarian status complete with “Women Pastors”)

Bart Barber Tweeted June 16 2022

“I’m thankful for @RickWarren’s courageous advocacy for full religious liberty for Muslims, our different opinions over pastoral complementarianism notwithstanding. It was a pleasure to meet him this week.” #SBC22

NO DOUBT THIS TRENDY FOCUS FOR SOUTHERN BAPTIST LEADERS HAS SOMETHING TO TO WITH SBC HUMANITARIAN ENTITY SEND RELIEF PARTNERSHIP WITH WORLD RELIEF OF THE NAE & THEIR MUTUAL WORK IN MUSLIM REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT

Send Relief is going to help the SBC fund its Diversity Equity & Inclusion – pro feminist /pro LGBTQ (and obviously pro Muslim) reforms and compliance training so it- like World Relief can be fully non-discriminatory as government and international contractors in Muslim Immigration ( again as Fuller Seminary admits calling it ) OR “refugee resettlement ” as Baptist missions arm NAMB and Send Relief prefer to say.

No matter what it is called -reality is Muslim migration pays WELL. Send Relief has an entire center in Clarkston GA (Ellis Island of the South) to welcome , process, connect to social services, housing ,healthcare , employment and free cash for refugees of the right status or religion

The Consequences of Formal Education for Science and Religion

AREA OF FOCUS

Science & Religion in Context

“Usually, formal education starts with “the three Rs,” reading, writing, and arithmetic. And in some of the world, there is an increasing focus on STEM education – science, technology, engineering, and math. “

“Throughout the world, formal schooling is commonly understood as a process for learning the content, knowledge, skills, and norms required for being a productive and successful adult in society. Perhaps it’s no surprise then, that studies of the impact of education tend to focus on things such as demographic and economic outcomes.”

(GRANT STUDY TO TARGET CHILDREN’S BELIEFS, VALUES,AND BEHAVIORS )

“Much less is known, however, about how the quality and quantity of education shapes the beliefs, values, and behaviors that people adopt, both inside and outside of the classroom. This vast and mostly wide-open area of inquiry presents an important research opportunity for cognitive scientists, according to Cristine Legare, Ph.D., professor of psychology at the University of Texas at Austin and director of its Center for Applied Cognitive Science.”

“Education is transformative in multiple respects,” Dr. Legare points out. “It introduces new ideas. It challenges existing ideas and sometimes changes them. And many of these ideas are relevant to how we think about human nature, cultures, and the pressing problems that face our species and our world more generally. What children learn in schools about how the biological world works, how the physical world works, how humans interact and work in the world, and even about the origins of life and our place in the universe … encompasses the bedrock of understanding everything that people care about.”

“With funding from the Templeton Religion Trust, in partnership with Issachar Fund, Dr. Legare is directing a research initiative designed to delve deeply and broadly into better understanding how cultural influences shape the environment and content of the classroom, which in turn shapes attitudes, beliefs, and behaviors of groups of people.”

( A GLOBAL STUDY IN HOW VALUES AND BELIEFS ARE SHAPED IN SECULAR AND RELIGIOUS SCHOOLS )

“An international and interdisciplinary team is collaborating in this far-reaching initiative that spans 14 diverse field sites ranging from urban Japan to Hadza hunter-gatherers in Tanzania to small-scale societies in the Democratic Republic of Congo, where formal education has only recently been introduced.”

“The scope of the research includes schools that are completely secular, those that are directly associated with religious institutions, and many that combine secular and religious inputs in various ways. Religion-based schools have been the predominant model for providing education throughout history and remain widespread in much of the world today. Because of a research tradition biased towards western schools, the relevance of religious institutions in shaping educational systems and values has been widely under-appreciated.”

“The core reason that we are studying formal education in so many different societies – large scale, small scale, Eastern, Western, and everything in between — industrialized, industrializing, not industrialized at all – is to try to understand the ways in which the demographics … the level of economic development, the constellation of cultural values, and religious beliefs and behaviors are all shaping beliefs, identities, values, and meaning, and how those are changing in an increasingly interconnected, globalizing world,” Dr. Legare explains.”

“We want to understand the impact of the amount, kind, and content of formal schooling on psychological outcomes: the reasoning, beliefs, values, and behavior of individuals and groups. The only way to measure these processes and impacts is by studying populations that vary in their exposure to formal education. In 2021, education is not yet a universal experience, although it’s rapidly becoming one. And we still don’t know a lot about the consequences.”

(THE POWER OF EDUCATION IS HIGHLIGHTED)

“Education is transformative in multiple respects. It introduces new ideas and changes existing ideas. And these ideas are relevant to how we think about human nature, human cultures, and the pressing problems that are facing our species and the globe.”

A Broad and Deep Investigation

“The team-based approach of the project integrates theories and methods across the cognitive sciences. Broad in scope, it includes gathering data from teachers, parents, and other adults in the communities, as well as current and former students.”

“Specifically, the researchers hope to find answers to these questions:

  1. What is the impact of formal education on the kinds of reasoning people use, the beliefs and values they adopt, and the kind of behaviors they engage in?
  2. How are scientific and religious beliefs, values, and behaviors acquired and transmitted?
  3. What is the impact of formal education on scientific and religious belief formation and revision across a lifespan?
  4. What are the predictors of individual differences in how people think about science and religion?
  5. How and why does participating in formal education (secular and religious) impact social, demographic, economic, and political outcomes at the population-level?”

(NOTE NUMBER 3 IN PARTICULAR – ” 3-What is the impact of formal education on scientific and religious belief formation and revision across a lifespan?”)

(WHAT IS “REVISION” AND WHO IS TO BE ASSIGNED TO IT AS EDUCATORS SEEK TO UNDO PARENTAL INSTRUCTION?)

“In addition to tracking and measuring variations within each population – for example, comparing children of the same age who started school in different years – the project also involves cross-cultural comparisons. Because populations vary in so many ways other than their educational systems, the researchers are intentionally focusing these comparisons on populations that are ethnically, linguistically, and socioeconomically similar but have experienced different access to formal schools – for reasons as varied as geographical features, parental control, or what Dr. Legare describes as “just pure historical accident.” Comparing cultures that are more similar than different makes isolating the causal effects of formal education much more precisely traceable, she explains.”

Laying New Groundwork

“Dr. Legare’s interest in this research topic is both academic and personal. Extensive travel has stimulated her curiosity and informed her insights into the many ways education changes people, both cognitively and as participants in a culture. A key objective of this project is to build a global network of cognitive scientists who share those interests and can contribute to a deeper, fact-based, and more holistic understanding of the impacts of education.”

“It’s critically important, Dr. Legare maintains, that formal education is more widely understood by parents and whole societies as a conduit for transmitting values and beliefs as well as academic content and skills. Recognizing that reality, she says, also means acknowledging that there’s currently very little reliable information about the process of cultural transmission, particularly the extent to which what’s learned in school is coexisting or conflicting with beliefs already embedded within a population.”

( NOTE -THE PREFERRED LONG TERM OUTCOMES STATED CLEARLY IN CLOSING)

“This initiative is an opportunity to understand the sorts of things that predict greater coexistence of complex religious and scientific concepts, which from my perspective is critical to reducing conflict, promoting human wellbeing, and creating 21st century global citizens,” she says.”

TEMPLETON FUNDED BIOLOGOS EFFORTS IN CHRISTIAN EDUCATION TO MERGE SCIENCE AND FAITH THROUGH THEISTIC EVOLUTION…ALONG WITH THE GLOBAL PANDEMIC HYPE.

Francis Collins with BioLogos crew holding the “&” sign as the central figure in efforts to wed evolution “science ” and Christian Faith through the interfaith funding of templeton foundation.”

CAN CHRISTIAN CHURCHES- INSTITUTIONS -SCHOOLS AND SEMINARIES RESIST THE SEDUCTION AND TEMPTATION AND SURVIVE THESE DOUBLE FRONTED BATTLES?

CONCLUSION

The only way that Christian institutions of all kinds can avoid these massive seductions is to say NO to the funding . Both Templeton and another invasive Christian education funer Kern Family Foundation had both moved some activities offshore to the Cayman Islands by 2014 according to investigative reports.Such a move for corporations and wealthy individuals is done as tax shelters- something non profit philanthropic Foundations do not need. They do not pay taxes any way. So why are they off shore? These organizations create no paper trail or 990s for questionable funding sources coming in or larger payments and grants going out.

As Christian institutions and schools struggle financially they must commit to trust the same Lord who promised His provision to them if they remain faithful to His calling and a biblical vision. But too many have already agreed to sell the call and the vision for the short term gain of grants and questionable funding. Either God is faithful or He is not. Christian institutions must ask-Who do we serve and who do we trust ?

Matt. 6:24

“No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money.

6:31-33

“Therefore do not be anxious, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For the Gentiles seek after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them all. But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and all these things will be added to you”

1 Corinthians 4:2

Moreover, it is required of stewards that they be found trustworthy.

We trust God or we perish with the dirty funding .

THE REAL SCANDAL IN THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION IS NOT “SEX ABUSE”. PART 1

THE ACTUAL SCANDAL IS HOW THE SEX ABUSE INVESTIGATION IS BEING USED TO FORCE DE&I ON SOUTHERN BAPTIST PROVIDING A HUGE WINDFALL FOR SBC ENTITIES .

Rev Thomas Littleton

6/13 /2022

Southern Baptist Christians are being told they or their church messengers headed to Anaheim California to vote on annual business and to “deal with the sex abuse scandal and investigation ” which they (the messengers) are told they demanded last year. Baptist are also being told that they wanted and ordered a “Task Force” to be formed to study the ongoing sex abuse and cover up scandals and “report back in 2022”.

So is this what is really happening? It only appears to be the case if you do not know or pay close attention to the rest of the story and events of the last five years.

ONE WAY TICKET TO COMPLIANCE REFORMS

Baptist have descended into Anaheim mostly unaware that they have been played into having the politically correct, global goals, social justice and equity, intersectional, template of Diversity Equity & ($) Inclusion applied to them – their churches- their missions organizations and their futures. Reform is in the air- DE&I compliance Reform and NOTHING IS GOING TO STOP IT.

MR, PRESIDENT – CAN YOU RESPOND?

No matter who becomes the next SBC President they are going to either be played or be a part of playing their fellow Southern Baptist into the overhaul of Baptist culture – values and metrics just like the corporate and agency clients of the DE&I partners the Task Force and other entities in the SBC have chosen .

VICTIMS STAND ASIDE

Victims of actual sex abuse by some in the SBC must wait their turn and for the class action lawsuits etc to be cake walked through the process. Of course law firms and court fees and such will help dwindle down actual settlements. Placed alongside the grant funding windfalls a DE&I compliant SBC leadership can obtain as a result of the “sex abuse “reforms- abuse survivors pay offs will look rather meager in comparison. Meanwhile the SBC coffers can quickly be replenished with more grant funding once DE&I reforms are secured. Sex Abuse Victims were the perfect vehicle to drive compliance.

THE REAL SBC SCANDAL IS TWO FOLD

First – Few Baptist know or have ever been told that their movement has become major players in the Faith Based Partnerships for humanitarian work/ disaster relief / and community development . This means SBC entities and programs like SEND RELIEF can assess billions of dollars in federal / local/ NGO funding and private foundation grants. Along with other organizations , after agreeing not the “discriminate” (KEY WORD HERE in the SCANDAL) – WHO KNEW- DID YOU? Also this means -Secondly -everything hinges on SBC ability /agreement to obey the rules NOT to engage any explicitly religious activity ( i.e. Gospel ministry) in the funded programs AND to reform- impose- foster …”MORE Diversity Equity and Inclusion” or DE&I.

SOME HISTORY ON NAMB HUMANITARIANISM AND PARTNER -WORLD RELIEF

Send Relief has become a part of the Refugee Care /Resettlement in a huge way through the evangelical recruiting partner World Relief , the humanitarian arm of the National Association of Evangelicals . NAE/ World Relief came along side the US Conference of Catholic Bishops to “recruit evangelical partners into refugee care and resettlement of Muslims (mostly ) into the US. World Relief landed a reported $300 million of the $5.4 billion which the Catholic Bishops obtained very early on for these efforts.

Send Relief is developing a network of Send Centers around the country . The Clarkston GA center appears to be the primary center for Muslim Refugee processing and resettlement .

“From refugee camps to permanent resettlement, you and your church can walk with them along their journey, protecting them and helping them adapt through intentional support and genuine friendship. Be the hands, feet and voice of Jesus as you help them find spiritual, physical and emotional healing.”

SBC TASK FORCE HIRED DE&I INVESTIGATORS AND DE&I /LGBTQ LAW FIRM

The SBC Task Force hired Guidepost Solutions to lead the “Sex Abuse Investigation”. Guidepost is a corporate investigative firm specializing in compliance and prevention outcomes as part of the frenzy of the #MeToo movement .

GUIDEPOST IS A “MOSAIC OF DIVERSITY AND INNOVATION”.

“Guidepost is committed to strengthening diversity, equity and inclusion and strives to be an organization where our team can bring their authentic selves to work.”

“Commitment to Diversity + Inclusion”
“Guidepost Solutions fosters an inclusive environment of professionals who share common values of diversity and equality. We treat each other with respect. We listen to and learn from one another with compassion and empathy. We encourage diverse viewpoints as we provide innovative solutions for our clients’ complex challenges.”

UNLIKE BIBLE BELIEVING FAITH AND FAMILY VALUING BAPTIST – GUIDEPOST IS ALSO :

“We ( GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS ) celebrate our collective progress toward equality for all and are proud to be an ally to our LGBTQ+ community.”

THE TASK FORCE LAW FIRM IS LINKLATERS :

“To help us ( Linklaters focus and measure our efforts in D&I, we have prioritised six strands of diversity globally” .These DE&I measures include ” Gender- Race and Ethnicity -Social Mobility- Age and Life Stage- LGBTQ-Disability .”

The Diversity Faculty are pleased to launch a new blog providing you with relevant #diversity and #inclusion news, updates and insights from our dedicated team of lawyers and practitioners”

Linklaters has helped Human Rights Campaign “develop litigation strategies for advancing LGBTQ equality”. Because – “DE&I is the Pulse of our Firm”

THE PUBLIC RELATIONS FIRM DE&I COMMITMENT :

Guidepost Solutions Public Relations Firm who responded to this writers questions about Guidepost Solutions ongoing role in the SBC,under its DE&I commitment- boast :

“We don’t work with businesses or individuals whose actions or beliefs we believe undermine gender, LGBTQ+, ethnic, racial or social equality.”

SO ALL OF THE SBC SEX ABUSE TASK FORCE PARTNERS ARE DEEPLY COMMITTED TO DE&I OUTCOMES- TRAINING- CULTURE – AND METRICS.

SEND RELIEF WILL FUND THE APPLICATION OF THE TRAINING AND OUTCOMES FOR THE DE&I LED INVESTIGATION.

The Sex Abuse Task Force which hired both DE&I driven Guidepost Solutions and Linklaters Law Firm decided that the SEND RELIEF arm of NAMB – not the Cooperative Program giving- will fund the actions outlined in the Guidepost . The Task called for this change and the SBC Executive Committee voted on it today.

Funding for abuse reform changes

“Following an announcement from an SBC ministry funding arm and a vote by the SBC Executive Committee at a meeting Monday, there was a change to the source of funding for prospective sexual abuse reform work.”

“Two weeks ago, the executive committee gathered for a special meeting to vote on measures to make recommendations to the SBC voting delegates — called messengers — to approve funding for abuse reform work. When the executive committee approved those measures, the plan was to use funding from the Cooperative Program budget, which is what churches donate to. “

“However, a week after the executive committee’s June 2 meeting, SEND Relief, a separate fund for natural disaster response and other ministries, announced it would put unrestricted dollars to the abuse reform work instead.” 

On Monday morning, the executive committee met and voted to rescind the measures they approved on June 2. 

“On Tuesday, messengers will vote on a series of abuse reform recommendations. If approved, SEND Relief will commit its dollars to that work.”

“SEND Relief said it would provide $3 million for initial abuse reform work. In addition, it will give $1 million to a survivor-care fund.”

(Note- above from The Tennessean report in SBC annual meetings.)

SELF INTEREST AND -GREED KILLING EVANGELICAL MISSION ?

NAE is a lobbying organization for evangelicals and was founded to lobby in DC for Evangelicals interest. Given that NAEs World Relief is THE major recruiter of evangelical partners in grant funded humanitarian programs and that SEND RELIEF is the SBCs primary humanitarian partner – the interest they seem to serving is their own.

NAE AND WORLD RELIEF CONFIRM THEIR DE&I AND REFUGEE FOCUS IN CT ARTICLE JULY 2021

In an article in Christianity Today – NAE discusses its own DE&I Complinace reforms and MORE money for its Muslim Resettlement efforts once the “Trump era Muslim Bans” were lifted .

“After Challenging Season, World Relief Names New President”

“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.”

“Myal’s deep understanding of our work, his engagement in this strategic refresh and his team-based leadership style uniquely position him for effectiveness at this moment in our journey,” said Steve Moore, chair of World Relief’s board of directors.”

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

NAE /WORLD RELIEF LESS MUSLIMS -LESS MONEY MORE MUSLIMS- MO MONEY

“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. In the past few months, World Relief began ramping up their resources and rebuilding infrastructure under President Biden. “

“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.”

SEND RELIEF WORK IN HUMANITARIAN EFFORTS /FEMA / SEND RELIEF CENTERS AND REFUGEE INFUSION IN US COMMUNITIES .

If you doubt the role Send Relief is playing in government funded work then ask your Baptist leaders to open the books and respond by addressing the sources, presence of, requirements and facts around the funding .

If you wonder why the Send Relief arm of the SBC/NAMB is handling the funding of the SBC Task Force and its DE&I partners in the “investigation” outcomes reforms and compliance -then look no further than whose standards of DE&I and non-discrimination the SBC is now beholden to and what it will take for all these partners to continue to operate their humanitarian programs together.

MONEY AND ORGANIZATIONS WHO ALREADY HAVE ASEAT AT THE TABLE

At the Table already have been government agencies – private foundations including Open Society interest , Equality advocates and activist- Feminist- racial minority advocates ( whose cause and calls for reparations are next on the SBC list) and a host of the victim ACTIVIST coalition streaming in the cultural abyss.

Rainbow flags – egalitarian pulpits – racial reparations and more await a new -reformed and compliant Southern Baptist.

VICTIMS STILL ACTUALLY HAVE NO ADVOCATE UNLESS THEY FIT THE UNDERLYING AGENDA.

THE SBC leadership have now placed you- your church and your faith into the same streams which merge into the “River of No Return”.

Matthew 21

Jesus Cleanses the Temple

12 And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. 13 He said to them, “It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.”

Real Abuse ( sexual and other wise ) Victims look to the ROCK from which you were hewn. Jesus has something for you.

14 And the blind and the lame came to him in the temple, and he healed them. 

BAPTIST LEADERS WAKE UP AFTER GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS TWEET BUT IGNORE SBC TASK FORCE LAW FIRM WITH SAME RADICAL AGENDA .

BAPTIST TASK FORCE MEMBERS WERE DEFENSIVE OF HIRING GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS AFTER REVELATIONS OF GUIDEPOST PRO LGBTQ+ AGENDA WHILE HIDING THEIR OWN LAW FIRMS OVER THE TOP STANCE ON THE VERY SAME CULTURAL ABYSS.

Rev Thomas Littleton

6-7- 2022

According to Baptist news The Southern Baptist Task Force hired two attorneys from the Linklaters Law firm in September 2021 .

“The task force explains this matter in its Sept. 29 letter: “The task force retained our own legal counsel, Linklaters attorneys Adam Lurie and Richard Smith. Both men are former senior Department of Justice officials with extensive background also in corporate law.”

Linklaters describes Diversity Equity & Inclusion as the “Pulse of their law firm.” and feature a variety of equity driven metrics including LGBTQ.

DO NOT MISS THIS BOAST OF THE LAW FIRMS HRC/LGBTQ+ LITIGATION PARTNERSHIPS

“We joined Human Rights Campaign in a new initiative to pursue strategic litigation in U.S. state and federal courts to address discriminatory actions against the LGBTQ+ community.”

GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS “A MOSAIC OF DIVERSITY AND INNOVATION

Guidepost Solutions was also contracted by the SBC Task Force for the Investigation into sex abuse and allegations of supposed massive SBC /Executive Committee cover ups in accusations from Russell Moore.

This writer warned in Oct 2021 that both firms were heavily focused on DE&I and committed to these “values ” corporately. These values are NOT compatible with the biblically conservative SBC and would not be fitting partners for investigations into sexual issues or misconduct by Baptist leaders. They simply do not share the same values and the SBC cannot be forced to comply with trendy corporate DE&I metrics .

GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS PR FIRM TO WHICH THIS WRITERS INQUIRIES WERE SENT BY GUIDEPOST CEO HAS ITS OWN OVERT STANCE ON LGBTQ+

The confirmed Public Relations firm for Guidepost Solutions is Montieth and Company which has its own boast about DE&I and a line in the sand which seems to say it would NEVER work with the SBC.

“Montieth & Company”

“We don’t work with businesses or individuals whose actions or beliefs we believe undermine gender, LGBTQ+, ethnic, racial or social equality.”

Montieth and Company has done some past tweeting of their own :

“In the city of Stonewall, @MontiethPR is proud to stand with the members of the LGBTQIA+ community, as part of our ongoing commitment to and work towards diversity and inclusion for all.”

GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS BLOWS THEIR OWN HORN -AND THEIR CREDIBILITY WITH BAPTIST .

By June 6th MANY SBC leaders like Tom Ascol who is running for SBC President , and leaders from Alabama , TN and KY realized the SBC was” being played”. Guidepost celebrated its stance alongside LGBTQ+ Pride in a now infamous post on Twitter with this comment:

Guidepost Solutions

“Guidepost is committed to strengthening diversity, equity and inclusion and strives to be an organization where our team can bring their authentic selves to work. We celebrate our collective progress toward equality for all and are proud to be an ally to our LGBTQ+ community.”

A FULL DAY LATER AFTER THE CONCERNS AROSE IN THE SBC OVER GUIDEPOST- LINKLATERS FIRM DOES THE SAME.

LINKLATERS THE TASK FORCE FIRM SPORTS THE SAME COLORS AS GUIDEPOST PRIDE POST
June 7th twitter by Linklaters -a day AFTER Guidepost Solutions Troubled SBC leaders.


Linklaters LLP

“This summer, we #TakePride in showing where we stand in supporting LGBT+ rights and taking meaningful actions to be an organisation that is #proud to be inclusive. Find out more about our approach to diversity, equity and inclusivity below.”

CLASS ACTION LAWSUITS WILL NO DOUBT FOLLOW THE REPORT

All Five law firms involved with various entities of the SBC will no doubt play a large role, perhaps even larger than Guidepost Solutions going forward in the SBC sex abuse scandal. Litigation and lawsuits – even a massive class action suit is bound to follow.It is a given since many if not most SBC entities and leaders have admitted to the sex abuse scandal.

At present a group of former US Gymnastics Team members are suting the FBI for $1 billion dollars. Rachael Denhollander is one of the most well known victims in this case and is part of the SBC investigation.According to one former EC leader it was Denhollander who first put the SBC leadership in touch with/ recommending Guidepost Solutions.

Previously she had recommended victims to Guidepost in the RAVI Zacharias Ministries scandal .

“A reminder that anyone with information is encouraged to reach out confidentially to Guidepost Solutions as they perform a thorough investigation and assessment into RZIM and abuse or harassment related issues. See 2nd tweet for contact information.”

FROM THE ALABAMA BAPTIST OVER SEVERAL STATES BAPTIST LEADERS

CONCERNS OVER GUIDEPOST

“Eight Alabama Baptist leaders have jointly addressed the concern circulating among Southern Baptists about Guidepost Solutions’ support and advocacy of LGBTQ+ causes. They are asking Southern Baptist Convention leaders to sever ties with the organization (read full statement here) while encouraging continued support for the sexual abuse survivor community.”

“Guidepost is the firm hired to conduct the recent investigation into the SBC Executive Committee’s handling of sexual abuse cases from Jan. 1, 2000, through June 14, 2021, and has technically completed its work.”

“A current relationship continues with Guidepost through the hotline established for survivors and the group has worked with other entities within SBC life.”

“Debate sparked quickly on social media following the June 6 pride month-related tweet from the organization’s Guidepost Global account.”

“Describing itself as an “ally to our LGBTQ+ community” and noting its commitment “to strengthening diversity, equity and inclusion” the message was accompanied by a photo of a rainbow flag.”

TASK FORCE LEADERS DEFEND GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS PARTNERSHIP /ROLE IN SBC INVESTIGATION

( ALSO FROM ALABAMA BAPTIST REPORT IN GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS LGBTQ+ POST)

“Task force response”

“A variety of viewpoints continue to be shared via Twitter and other platforms about the ethics of allowing Guidepost to conduct the investigation as well as spending Cooperative Program dollars to pay for it.”

“And while members of the SBC Sexual Abuse Task Force expressed disappointment in the tweet, they stand by the work performed by Guidepost and the people who were assigned to work with them.”

“South Carolina pastor Marshall Blalock, vice chair of the task force, told The Alabama Baptist, “They are a secular company … but our experience with them has been that they did an incredible job. They did what we asked them to do, and they’ve handed it off to us.”

“We believe we’ve got a good report. … (As far as the tweet), it was disappointing to say the least and we knew people would not react well and we understand that,” Blalock said. “We still believe the report they gave us was credible. … We don’t believe that tweet did harm to what they gave us, but at the same time we don’t have confidence to recommend them in the future at this point unless there’s something that changes somehow.”

“Blalock confirmed no Christian firms with the capacity to handle the investigation surfaced when the task force was determining who to hire, but Guidepost “had helped multiple Christian organizations, multiple churches, multiple entities. … They actually understood what we were about as Southern Baptists. They assigned to us people on their staff who were … Christian (and some Baptists). … It was obvious these were people who cared about the kingdom, cared about survivors, cared about what we were trying to do.”

FACT CHECK AND TIMELINE

Before the contract was signed with Guidepost by the Task Force – concern had arisen over some Guidepost Solutions requirement of the SBC Executive Committee who stood accused by leaked emails between Russell Moore ,defrocked head SBC ethicist and his original partner in the 2018 “Investigations/former SBC President J D Greear. Dozens of Executive Committee members resigned over the effort to FORCE the waiver of “attorney client privilege”. The long time law firm of the SBC Executive Committee also resigned over this issue.This action looks to have been done to shift the balance of power in the EC from biblical Conservatives to the growing progressive fringe represented by Moore and many Neo Calvinist and TGC affiliated Baptist.

Then $ 2 million dollars and an extremely fragile and unimpressive Guidepost Solutions / Task Force investigation REPORT later – many in the SBC had been wondering what they had just paid for and where the concerns would land outside those targeted in the REPORT.

Complaints were everywhere about the shoddy work behind the REPORT and also that many victims stories and interviews were LEFT OUT OF THE GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS REPORT .

The question then became “DO ACTUAL ABUSE VICTIMS EVEN HAVE AN ADVOCATE IN THE MIX?”

The highly suspect REPORT was discussed from its release in mid May until the Guidepost Solutions LGBTQ PRIDE affirming Tweet on January 6th which received over 165 concerned retweets with disturbed quotes including from SBC Presidential candidate Tom Ascol.

Tom Ascol @tomascol

“1/ This is who we gave our tithe dollars to? I & 47,000 other SBC pastors, plus millions of faithful members feel betrayed. We paid $millions to a LGBT-affirming & proud organization to guide us on moral & spiritual matters!? Is there no fear of God?”

COMPARE THE GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS POST TO THE TASK FORCE LAW FIRMS POST BELOW

SO WHERE IS THE SBC OUTRAGE AND CONCERN OVER THE TASK fORCE LAW FIRM WITH AN EVEN MORE FIRM AND ONGOING ROLE WITH THE FOLLOW UP TO THE SBC INVESTIGATION AND CERTAIN LITIGATION?

WILL SOUTHERN BAPTIST LEADERS BE ABLE TO MAINTAIN THE BACKBONE TO STAND AGAINST THE OBVIOUS HUSTLE STILL GOING ON AMONG THE “INVESTIGATION” AND TASK FORCE “PARTNERS”?

Gentlemen NOW is the time to repent and extract the SBC from the hands of those who hate us and God’s Word and the Saviour we serve.

HOW GREAT IT WOULD HAVE BEEN TO PREVENT THESE ERRORS BEFORE THEY EVER HAPPENED AND BAPTIST BELIEVERS REPUTATIONS AND HOUSES OF WORSHIP WERE EXPOSED TO THIS AGENDA DRIVEN EFFORT AND REAL ABUSE VICTIMS WERE LEFT TO REMAIN UNREPRESENTED?

Reportedly the $2 million paid to Guidepost Solutions – plus another $ 4 million and one reported total of $14 million has been spent or committed to this Investigation and Compliance / Prevention effort turned folly.

CONCLUSION

Enough – let Baptist call for repentance- for a total do over of the “Investigation” AND exposure of all those “leaders ” in the SBC who led us into the hands of these PROUD partners and their contrary values to the Lord we serve.

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF EVANGELICALS IN GLOBAL SAUDI LED “LEAGUE” OF INTERFAITH “COMMON RELIGIOUS VALUES”.

NAE AND OTHER NGO/ FAITH BASED PARTNERS ARE EAGER TO MOVE INTO INTERFAITH/ MULTIFAITH DIALOG AFTER BIG GRANTS FOR MUSLIM REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT.

Rev Thomas Littleton

6/3/2022

SOME QUICK BACKGROUND ON THE NAE MISSION :

The National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) is an association of denominations, organizations, schools, churches and individuals, and a member of the World Evangelical Alliance. The association represents more than 45,000 local churches from nearly 40 different denominations and serves a constituency of millions. “The mission of the NAE is to honor God by connecting and representing evangelicals in the US.

The NAE seeks to strengthen denominations and ministries facilitating collaboration among evangelical leaders and ministries. The NAE works with Congress, the White House and courts. The NAE Chaplains Commission endorses and supports chaplains in the military. World Relief is NAE’s humanitarian arm.

WHY IS THE NAE CHOOSING TO PARTNER WITH A NEW INTERFAITH LEAGUE TO”ACHIEVE JUSTICE, MERCY , AND MODESTY” VIA A MUSLIM LED FORUM ?

(From the speech of the President of the National Association of Evangelicals in the United States of America, Mr. Walter Kim, in the Forum on Common Values Among Religious Followers in RIYADH )

FORUM ON COMMON VALUES AMONG RELIGIOUS FOLLOWERS :

“The forum on “Common Values Among Religious Followers” launched under the auspice of the Muslim World League.”

IS THE MUSLIM WORLD LEAGUE PART OF THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD?

NOTE: ACCORDING TO MULTIPLE organizations which track the Muslim Brotherhood – the “Muslim World League ” is the Saudi branch of …and one of the PREMIER Muslim Brotherhood organizations in the world. ” Counter Terrorism.com traces this history and funding : “The influence of the Brotherhood in Saudi Arabia led to the emergence of an Islamist movement known as the Sahwa (Awakening). As part of the movement, a variety of Islamist groups, including the Saudi Brotherhood, propagated Islamist writings, especially at universities. The groups formally distanced themselves from foreign organizations in an effort to avoid arousing suspicion. Local financing helped conceive the formation of multiple Brotherhood-aligned organizations, including the Muslim World League (1962), the World Assembly of Muslim Youth (1972), and others.”

A former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy who has testified before Congress and has investigated/ prosecuted terrorist in 2012 said the following about the Muslim World League :

Our Government and the Muslim Brotherhood
My Speech in Washington

by Andrew McCarthy
August 9, 2012

…the Muslim World League in Saudi Arabia, (is) perhaps the most significant Muslim Brotherhood organization in the world.”

As recently as 2018 many others have testified before Congress that the Muslim Brotherhood is “GLOBAL THREAT” DUE TO IT’S MASSIVE SUPPORT OF TERRORISM.”

WHY WOULD NAE WORK WITH INTERFAITH DIALOG OR MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD TIED ORGANIZATIONS PROMOTING ISLAM?

Answer? Refugee Resettlement is big business and the money is flowing once again in the current administration.

NAE AND REFUGEE RESETTLEMENT $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$MASSIVE FUNDING IS THE LIKELY INSPIRATION .

According to a July 22 2021 Christianity Today article NAE’s missions arm “World Relief” is a major player in the Refugee Resettlement industry .WR has received hundreds of millions of dollars in federal grants for their resettlement programs-which….according to the article, has ALSO inspired a move to become more focused on/ compliant with Diversity Equity and Inclusion” policies which drive the government and other private funding .

Excerpt from CT article in 2021 as WR hired a new director :

“AFTER A CHALLENGING SEASON, WORLD RELIEF NAMES NEW PRESIDENT “

“After Challenging Season, World Relief Names New President:”

“A veteran World Relief staff member who developed models for church partnerships and expanded the ministry’s programming abroad will take over this year as its new president and CEO.”

“The appointment of Myal Greene follows a challenging season for the organization, the humanitarian arm of the National Association of Evangelicals and a leading refugee resettlement agency.”

“We’re certainly going through a season of challenges related to the refugee resettlement program and the COVID crisis that have put strains on the organization—on our operations, resources, and opportunities to carry out our programs and our ministry,” Greene said, “but I’m really encouraged by the resilience and commitment of our staff and volunteers, who faithfully serve no matter the circumstances.”

“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. 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.”

(CATCH THAT? NAE LOBBIED THE PRESENT ADMINISTRATION FOR MORE (MUSILM) REFUGEES .)

“Greene is scheduled to take on his new role shortly before the next fiscal year begins in September. His predecessors, Scott Arbeiter and Tim Breene, announced their retirement in February.”

“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. He had also previously directed ministry operations in Rwanda and Africa.”

(FORWARD TOGETHER NAEs DIVERSITY ,EQUITY AND INCLUSION INITIATIVE )

“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.”

“Myal’s deep understanding of our work, his engagement in this strategic refresh and his team-based leadership style uniquely position him for effectiveness at this moment in our journey,” said Steve Moore, chair of World Relief’s board of directors.”

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

DETAILS OF THE RECENT INTERFAITH FORUM OF MUSLIM WORLD LEAGUE

“The forum on “Common Values among Religious Followers” launched under the auspice of the Muslim World League:
Muslim leaders and Senior scholars hailed to Riyadh to attend the most important international religious event with the participation of representatives of all major religions and cultures”
Al-Shehri:
–    “The forum is based on solid basis of the teachings of our great religion that calls for dialogue and cooperation.. Among its main topics is clarifying that Islam is a mercy to the worlds”
–    “Guests of the forum are distinguished leaders who are known for their respect towards Muslims and have several stands on Islamic issues that are worthy of appreciation”
–    “Muslims, with their power of righteousness, are dialogue initiators and the authors of its literature.”

Riyadh:
“The forum of “Common Values among Religious Followers”, hosted by the Muslim World League, launched today, Wednesday, in the presence of a number of religious leaders in Riyadh. His Excellency the Under Secretary General Of Corporate Communications of the Muslim World League, Mr. Abdulwahab bin Mohammad Al-Shehri, explained that the forum is based on the MWL’s goals included in its statute and regulations, which aim to consolidate its global role as an independent international non-governmental organization. Spreading the values of Islam that call for the good of humanity, including cooperation with everyone to strengthen human commonalities for a more cooperative and peaceful world, as well as more coexisting and harmonious societies are among its goals, starting from the land of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, the land of Islam and human communication.”


“He stressed that the forum has strong basis of the teachings of our great religion that calls for dialogue and cooperation to ensure optimal coexistence in our world. In light of which the modern international system was created under the auspice of the United Nations, comprising of organizations, bodies and programs which is a place where everyone converges. That includes the United Nations Alliance of Civilizations, in which Islamic countries, through their scholars and intellectuals, have played an active role.
Al-Shehri revealed that “among the main topics of this forum is the clarification of the facts of Islam that it came as a mercy to the worlds, and our noble Prophet (PBUH) conveyed its morals to all people, as he was described by the Almighty God as the greatest character. With his morals, he was able to spread harmony among people. While Extremism and counter-extremism (around the world) sought to distort those Islamic values. Those values with their greatness were able to reach the worlds and eliminate attempts to distort them.” He continued “today, we see new attempts to destroy these values -everywhere- resulting in concepts, theories and slogans of Islamophobia”.


“Speaking about the solid foundation of the forum, the Under Secretary General Of Corporate Communications of the Muslim World League, added: “The forum is also based on the guidance of the Madinah Charter which our Prophet (PBUH) signed with various religions in Madinah. The charter clearly highlighted the wisdom of Islamic legislation in dealing with everyone, as Islam was opened “positively” to followers of religions to clarify its message of calling for the good of humanity and to address any wrong concepts, methods or practices that do not contribute to the understanding and peaceful coexistence of all.”


“Al-Shehri reiterated that the attendance of the forum are “independent religious leaders whose main focus is the religious framework”. He also stressed that the Muslim World League does not deal with any ideological or political goals whatsoever, as it is the MWL’s approach. As it is necessary in such matters, such events must be independent from any goals other than their sublime declared goal.”


“Regarding the forum’s guests, religious leaders from non-Islamic components, he said: “The guests of this forum are distinguished leaders, who are known to respect Muslims and stand with them in a number of issues which is worthy of appreciation.” Al-Shehri noted that communication with them comes to building more bridges to reach desired goals.”


“He continued: “This important and pivotal context requires the wisdom of Muslim scholars – majority of forum attendees- to continue dialoguing with others to further clarify the truth about the values of Islam, which represent every sublime human value. Therefore those common values deserve attention and completion.”

Forum on Common Values Among Religious Followers

OTHER AMERICAN EVANGELCIALS MET WITH MUSLIM WORLD LEAGUE LEADER IN DC DURING 2021 TOUR OF THE US .

DAVID PLATT AND BOB ROBERTS JR,BOTH SOUTHERN BAPTIST , MET WITH LEADER OF WML IN DC .

MWL welcomed a number of American evangelical leaders in Washington, DC to review the contents of the Charter of Makkah and its purpose to establish community and global harmony.

BASIS OF THE INTERFAITH DIALOG BY MUSLIM WORLD LEAGUE IS PROMOTING :

The Charter of Makkah (Mecca, officially Makkah al-Mukarramah )
“On May 28, 2019, the “Charter of Makkah” was endorsed unanimously
by an unprecedented group of the world’s leading Muslim scholars, who
gathered in the Holy City for the promotion of moderate Islam.
“The Charter of Makkah” offers Muslims around the world guidance on
the principles that speak to the true meaning of Islam.
The Charter of Makkah is orientated around the following principles:
1- All people, regardless of their different ethnicities, races and
nationalities, are equal under God.
2- We reject religious and ethnic claims of “preference.”
3- Differences among people in their beliefs, cultures and natures
are part of God’s will and wisdom.
4- Religious and cultural diversity never justifies conflict. Humanity
needs positive, civilized partnerships and effective interaction.
Diversity must be a bridge to dialogue, understanding and
cooperation for the benefit of all humanity.”

THERE IS MORE ON THE CHARTER WHICH HAS 30 POINTS IN TOTAL. IT CAN BE FOUND IN WML LINK BUT THE MEETINGS PURPOSE WAS TO DISCUSS ENACTMENT.

“WML met with American muftis, imams, and other leaders in Washington, DC to discuss Islamic affairs and preparations to enact the contents of the Charter of Makkah within societal and official frameworks”

CONCLUSION

God’s people have a history of yoking themselves with and even mingling the worship of the Living God with other cultures and their idolatry. It never ended well in the Old Testament nor will it end well now.

What drives all this besides funding dollars and huge grant programs? MOST of the ministries and missions organizations have come under the UN Charter to serve as NGOs and agreed to work within Faith Based Partnership guidelines which do not allow for evangelism or “proselytizing”. Whether willingly or unwittingly -these organizations like NAE and World Relief are part of the United Nations push toward a GLOBAL multi-faith /interfaith / NEW AGE religion spoken of boldly by former UN “Prophet of PEACE” Robert Muller in his 1982 BOOK-

“New Genesis: Shaping a Global Spirituality”

This book and the UN ideology promoting a “Global Spirituality ” is the origins of mainstreaming “New Age” thinking. Universalist errors run throughout the UN and ALL its organizations .

“Robert Muller , who has been called the philosopher of the United Nations and its prophet of hope, believes the world can — and will — become a better place to live. His many years at the united Nations have convinced him that there is a growing movement even in the seemingly endless conflict between nations, toward a brotherhood of all peoples. He sees the dawning of a global age.”

Muslim World League partners listed on it’s website include the following UN organizations:

UNHRC- The UN Refugee Agency

IOM- UN Migration

WFP- UN World Food Program

UN Secretary General Speech

“HE the SG of the Muslim World League Sheikh Dr. Mohammad Alissa Speaks at the Peace Promotion Conference in Abu Dhabi: Islamic Values protected legitimate Rights and Liberties and made them a gauge for community justice, and warranty to their peace and prosperity.”

NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF EVANGELICALS HAS GONE OVER TO THE DARK SIDE.

It is done and OVER. NAE and World Relief and many other once “Christian” ministries and organizations have LEFT the GOSPEL behind. NAE is joined to idols and proud of it. They are Global and Federal Contractors and hirlings of the first order and of the WORST kind. NAE and these organizations now have a NEW MASTER .

Matthew 6:24

“You Cannot Serve God and Riches”

24 “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon. (MONEY) “

SOUTHERN BAPTIST SET FOR HARD LANDING SOMEWHERE “OVER THE RAINBOW”: MINUS BIBLICAL FIDELITY.

JUST AS NY TIMES ADMITS THAT THE #METOO MOVEMENT IS LIKELY OVER-THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST HAVE HANDED THE KEYS TO THEIR KINGDOM TO GOVERNMENT TRAINED CORPORATE GLADIATORS OF “DIVERSITY EQUITY & INCLUSION” COMPLIANCE & SOCIAL CHANGE.

Rev Thomas Littleton

5/23/2022

(NOTE: Hiding Sin is impossible because God knows- sees and has promised that all will come to light. The SBC and the church in general needs to confront sin both in culture with the preaching of the Gospel and in the household of faith -with calls to repentance and biblical church discipline. WHAT the church and SBC leaders cannot do and should not have done is welcome in partners to “investigate ” and draft compliance and culture change directives driven by political and cultural winds and applied critical theories bringing about Diversity Equity and Inclusion. DE&I end goals are presently being used by gender/ sexual / racial activist to pursue their desires for social change and a “place at the table “. Baptist leadership has welcomed this against the simple black and white of Biblical truth. DE&I activism is not seeking to advance the role of the church and the Gospel in the world because IT CANNOT – because it is in direct opposition to it. This is really very simple. The SBC and others inside the church have invited organizations who hold and esteem and boast values totally antithetical to the church,to the Bible and to God. Can two walk together except they are agreed? Obviously not. Amos 3:3 is God asking a rhetorical question. )

IN THE LATE 70’s SOUTHERN BAPTIST RALLIED TO REMAIN FAITHFUL TO BIBLICAL FIDELITY THROUGH EMBRACING INERRANCY.THE SEX ABUSE “INVESTIGATION” PARTNERS LOOK POISED TO REVERSE THAT AND RESHAPE A DENOMINATION IN THEIR OWN DE&I IMAGE.

From all indicators related to the culture driving the “Sex Abuse Investigation” inside Southern Baptist , someone deep inside the Southern Baptist Convention has set the movement up for a grand fall into apostasy. One clear player is Russell Moore who is Albert Mohler’s long time assistant and protege’. Moore may be out from the inside of an SBC entity and budget but is still firmly able to use his new Christianity Today position to accuse, besmirch, and point fingers at Baptist who educated him, paid his salary for decades and trusted him to be their lobbyist and PR spokesperson.

When entering the national spotlight as the new head of the Ethics and Religious Liberties Commission – Moore was quick to engage his own political leanings- declare the culture war “over and lost” and tell Baptist THEY needed to “be winsome and love our gay and lesbian neighbors”. Why ? To Moore’s thinking it is because their conservative resistance to the war being waged ON the church, in Moores’ words, was”hurting the Gospel. This has remained his and the ERLC narrative. Conservative Resurgence believers committed to Biblical inerrancy and “Faith and Family values” in their cultural engagement and politics- and worse yet- in their voting habits “are the problem” and are a hindrance to the advance of the Gospel in the culture.

Forget that the culture is racing toward its own demise as proven by history and warned about repeatedly and prophetically in Scripture.

MOORE’S ROLE IN THE SEX ABUSE INVESTIGATION

“Leaked ” emails from Moore accusing the SBC Executive Committee of “covering up sex abuse ” and the Southern Baptist being “filled with racism” led to the call for the formation of the “Task Force” in 2021 which immediately hired Guidepost Solutions.

GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS PUBLIC RELATIONS FIRM IS COMMITTED TO THE INTERSECTIONALITY RAINBOW OF DE&I EQUITY AND JUSTICE

EMAILING GUIDEPOST WITH A FEW RELEVANT QUESTIONS AND CONCERNS:

The Task Force and resulting Sex Abuse “Investigation” has yielded a number of progressive surprises and shocking wake up calls to non WOKE Baptist.More on that in a moment.

The latest revelation comes from efforts to engage the LEADERS of Guidepost Solutions with a few questions about the “Sex Abuse Investigation” it prepared for the SBC / Ed Litton appointed “Task Force “.

Guidepost forwarded the inquiry of this Baptist to its public relations firm – who quickly responded to the email BUT whose only real answer to a few short but vital questions was to confirm that “they speak for Guidepost Solutions”.

EVERY OTHER questions were all replied to with the same phrase… “I will NOT SPEAK TO THAT”.

It is indeed difficult to imagine that this repeated statement is to be taken as an appropriate or adequate RESPONSE to a short series of questions by a Southern Baptist whose church members paid for the $2 million investigation. It DOES INDICATE something. It certainly provides enough air of suspicion to indicate the organization Guidepost Solutions AND it’s PR firm do not want to be forthcoming …which is another way…a nice way … to say “they are making it sound as if they HAVE SOMETHING TO HIDE

If they DO have something to hide,which is disturbing to the average Christian in a Southern Baptist Church, then exactly WHAT ARE THEY HIDING from Christians who just paid them $2 million Dollars and whose past , present and futures Guidepost Solutions have now been given AN ALL ACCESS PASS ?

WHY should it be accepted that they should have anything to hide from Baptist … ESPECIALLY IN AN Investigation calling for and focused on Transparency ?

THIS latest discovery may be part of the reasons for that less than forthcoming response :

Meet Guidepost Solutions PR company who were tasked with speaking for Guidepost but refused to do so.

GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS INVESTIGATION OF BAPTIST -THE PR SPOKESPERSON WHO WILL NOT SPEAK TO A BAPTIST

The PR Firm for Investigative partner Guidepost Solutions which serves the SBC Task Force and several other entities within the SBC including ERLC and the Executive Committee and has been paid $2 million and counting by Southern Baptist is Montieth and Company.

The driving culture of BOTH Guidepost Solutions and it’s PR firm is the VERY recent ,honed and polished to a shine ,corporate metric for WOKE and political correctness and for the corporate world and government agencies called “Diversity Equity & Inclusion”.

Guidepost Solutions refers to itself as “a mosaic of DE&I” while the PR firm’s commitment goes even farther.

“Our Commitment
to Greater Diversity and Inclusion”

“We take seriously our responsibility to bring a greater diversity of voices to the narratives of our society. Here are a few of the ways we are committed to making a difference. Read our statement on Our Commitment to Diversity here.

TAKE A DEEP BREATH BEFORE YOU READ THIS NEXT PART OF THE ORGANIZATIONS STATEMENTS AND CONSIDER WHETHER IT CAN REPRESENT THE INTEREST OF SOUTHERN BAPTIST OR BIBLICALLY COMMITTED CHRISTIANS.

THE BOLD STATEMENT OF GUIDEPOST PR FIRM CLEARLY INDICATES THEY WILL NOT WORK FOR PEOPLE OR ORGANIZATIONS LIKE SOUTHERN BAPTIST WHO HOLD TO THE BIBLICAL STANDARD OF HUMAN SEXUALITY OR FAMILY.

“We don’t work with businesses or individuals whose actions or beliefs we believe undermine gender, LGBTQ+, ethnic, racial or social equality.”

GUIDEPOST OBTAINED A CONTRACT AND $2 MILLION DOLLARS (AND COUNTING)FROM SOUTHERN BAPTIST CHRISTIANS AND THEIR GOSPEL DRIVEN DONATIONS -WHILE DEEPLY AND OVERTLY COMMITTED TO CULTURAL SHIFTS AND CHANGE EFFORTS ANTITHETICAL TO THE WORD OF GOD & BAPTIST CONVICTIONS AND VALUES IS A HUGE PROBLEM !

SO IS THE SBC INTEREST BEING LEFT IN THE HANDS OF THIS PR FIRM. ISN’T IT FAIR TO SAY THIS IS A PROBLEM ?

QUESTIONS?

WHO INSIDE THE SBC LED THE LEADERSHIP INTO THE PARTNERSHIP WITH/HIRING OF GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS AND ITS PR FIRM?

HOW IS OFTEN POLITICALLY DRIVEN AND POLITICALLY CORRECT CULTURALLY TRENDING FASHIONABLE PROGRESSIVE RHETORIC BY CORPORATE SERVICE INDUSTRY LEADERS , MANY TRAINED BY/IN FEDERAL AGENCIES ,APPLIED TO CHRISTIAN FAITH?

HOW DOES AN ORGANIZATION WITH SUCH VALUES AND OBJECTIVES- FAITHFULLY WORK AS A PARTNER WITH THE CHURCH TO “INVESTIGATE ” AND DETERMINE OUTCOMES FOR THE CHURCH – ANY CHURCH – THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CHURCH IN PARTICULAR ?

WHAT COMES NEXT?

The PR firm for Guidepost Solutions would “not speak to” the simple question of :

“WHAT ONGOING ROLE WILL GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS PLAY IN THE SBC GOING FORWARD?”

MORE ON THE DECIDEDLY WOKE / JUSTICE VALUES AND DE&I COMMITTMENT OF GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS PUBLIC RELATIONS FIRM

THE FIRM TWEETED OUT SOME OF ITS STORIES IN 2021 INCLUDING PRO LGBQIA+/ PRO BLACK LIVES MATTER /SOCIAL CHANGE AND DE&I TRAINING FOR MINORITIES “MEDIA VOICES” WHICH IT IS OFFERING.

“in the city of Stonewall,

@MontiethPR is proud to stand with the members of the LGBTQIA+ community, as part of our ongoing commitment to and work towards diversity and inclusion for all.”

ON June 17th 2021

“This Juneteenth, we reflect on the progress and missteps in the journey toward diversity, equity and inclusion. A strategic communications plan could be the difference in making meaningful DEI initiatives effective.”

On March 15th 2021

“As part of our Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Initiative, M&Co offers complimentary media training to Black, Indigenous and people of color (BIPOC), women and other underrepresented executives to pave the way for more diverse voices in the media.”

DISTURBING BUT ON A DIFFERENT TOPIC

Guidepost Solutions is promoting BlackRock Inc’s CEO push for justice and sustainable driven investment. This is after more Churches and Christians have become aware of a similar push by BlackRock partners “Faith Driven Investors” and the “Christian Economic Forum” to “Reimagine” Christian Investing AND even church real estate through their progressive social justice lens. BlackRock Inc is on the radar for using its trillions to manipulate investing into the world of WOKE ON A global scale. Some in the church seem poised to follow blindly into the globalist sustainable urban vision despite the prophetic and Gospel implications of this path.

PR Firms BlackRock story pitch tweet

Montieth & Company

“Investors like BlackRock’s Larry Fink are increasing pressure on public companies to disclosure their impact on the environment and society at large, and how that exposes them to material risks. Here’s what that means for investor relations.”

COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS BUT ADD UP THE PROBLEMS WITH THESE REALITIES:

These MULTIPLE PROBLEMS with the culture and values of Guidepost Solutions are clearly PART OF A MUCH MORE DISTURBING AND undeniable reality.

Southern Baptist Christians and the church in general are being played and the biggest offenders are deep inside the Southern Baptist Movement itself.

SBC TASK FORCE WHO HIRED GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS FOR IT’S INVESTIGATION ALSO HIRED A RADICALLY PRO LGBTQAI+ LAW FIRM.

In Fact EVERY law firm brought on in any capacity by all SBC entities involved in the “sex abuse investigation” have been very pro LGBTQAI+ AND Human Rights Campaign supporters.

The SBC Task Force law firm is actually the MOST TIED to LGBTQIA+ activism and HRC.

Linklaters Law Firm represents the SBC Task Force investigation Sex Abuse with partner Guidepost Solutions .

They actually aided the HRC in developing litigation strategies :

“We were named as a Stonewall’s 2019 Top 100 Employers for LGBT people in the UK… We received the Gold Award in Japan’s first LGBT Pride Index for the fourth year in a row in 2019… We ranked #1 in the Hong Kong in the Community Business 2019 LGBT+ Inclusion Index…” Also, the law firm promotes its involvement with the Human Rights Campaign: “We have joined the Human Rights Campaign in a new initiative to pursue strategic litigation in U.S. state and federal courts to address discriminatory actions against the LGBTQ+ community.”

“We want to be known as the ‘best in class’ firm for Diversity & Inclusion – a diverse and inclusive workplace where everyone feels they belong, and diversity is celebrated.”

Our motivation

“We know that our differences make us a better law firm. Our diversity enables us to attract the best talent, drive innovation, and deliver the best experience to everyone who comes into contact with us. That’s why being a leader in Diversity & Inclusion is an integral part of our firm’s vision and strategy. As a responsible business, it is important to us that we represent the diversity of our people, our clients and our communities, and that we create an inclusive culture in which everyone – regardless of background, identity and circumstance – can reach their full potential.”

SO WHAT IS THE BIG DEAL OVER DIVERSITY EQUITY AND INCLUSION AND THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST “INVESTIGATION”.

Albert Mohler’s disciple Russell Moore has been pushing social change related to Southern Baptist and culturally trending race and LGBTQ narratives since he took office atthe ERLC in 2013. He followed through with a 2014 conference called” The Gospel Homosexuality and the Future of Marriage where he and Albert Mohler spoke, apologized for and accused Baptist while welcoming HRC and other radical LGBTQIA+ activist groups to attend .They never disclosed that a PRIVATE -HIDDEN BEHIND CLOSED DOORS meeting with HRC and other activist took place during that ERLC 2014 conference .

Moore by 2018 was covering for his own ERLCs involvement in the divisive and destructive Revoice conference and movement which was spawned at Mohler’s Southern Baptist Theological Seminary by a 15 year SBTS student turned SBTS New Testament Professor. Revoice has gone on to split the conservative PCA denomination due to a PCA church hosting and providing leadership in Revoice “LGBT+ Thriving in Historic (conservative church) Traditions”.

NOTE: In 2018 Moore’s people at ERLC are known to have lied to both the Dallas police and SBC messengers in order to cover for Revoice ERLC involvement and had this writer removed from the SBC meetings as a reporter for Worldview Weekend News. Moore still was forced by messengers to respond to Revoice concerns and totally denied any knowledge of it though a specific discussion of Revoice and the concerns had indeed taken place between this author and Moore the day before these events. Moore knew about Revoice and denied knowledge of it to messengers at the 2018 Dallas Annaul meetings.

MORE MOHLER CONRIBUTIONS TO THE PRESENT STATE OF SOUTHERN BAPTIST

It was many of Mohler’s people – those he educated and employed who engaged the issues of RACE in the TGC/ERLC social justice and CRT driven MLK/50 event in April 2018 . The same group took up the “cause” of Sex Abuse as the ERLC and JD Greear agreed to the 2018 “investigation” which actually (beyond it’s “Caring Well Conference” and videos and Lifeway booklets for purchase ) was a BRIDGE TO NOWHERE for the actual victims of abuse.

It was Mohler’s Critical Race Theory practitioners who took the stage in 2018 to accuse Baptist of Racism and demand to “Rid the Southern Baptist ” of its “Stain” .The very same Mohler team converted a resolution in 2019 submitted by a pastor to condemn the use and teaching or CRT and Intersectionality ( the launch and landing pads for Diversity Equity and Inclusion) into a resolution AFFIRMING THEM AS “useful analytical tools with the Gospel’. Baptist messengers- guilted and ignorant of Critical Theories and Cultural Marxist tools of the trade voted FOR resolution 9 with much buyers remorse later.

By 2020 the use of CRT was exploding as a national tragedy in public sphere including children’s education and demands to halt and prevent it reached a fever pitch. Albert Mohler’s CRT experts and the grant funding behind them had been firmly in place at Baptist seminaries since at least 2009. Baptist own trusted theologians who played them in 2019 with Resolution 9 had placed them in the boiling cauldron of critical theories years in advance of the secular education system in America. Shameful but true .

SO ALBERT MOHLER IS NOT BEING ACCUSED HERE-

For Al Mohler- Reality it is just that HIS finger prints and disciples are all over this.

MAY DAY AND MOHLER’S ESCAPE ?

On May 23rd 2018 Mohler called the Sex abuse Scandal :

“The Wrath of God Poured Out—The Humiliation of the Southern Baptist Convention”

On May 23rd 2022 Mohler Wrote:

The reckoning of the Lord

R. Albert Mohler Jr. | The Southern Baptist Convention faces the truth

BESIDES THE OBVIOUS “BEHIND THE SCENES” COORDINATION – SOMETHING ABOUT THE SEX ABUSE SCANDAL DOES NOT PASS THE SMELL TEST !

Besides these realities- basic truths are left out of measuring , judging and understanding sex- sex abuse- abuse in general. The Bible gives us a firm grasp that human beings have a fallen nature and that the world does not and cannot understand the Word of the Lord. The Gospel is redemptive .There is no Gospel here in these methods – tools – or those who are engaging them. This includes CRT and Intersectionality and DE&I which is SO DEAR TO Guidepost Solutions / its PR firm, GOVERNMENT agencies and the corporate world . They are the church inhabit a different space . And so they should. They represent EXTREMELY DIFFERENT VALUES -as the result of God and His world having recently been displaced in Western Culture.

VICTIMS DO NOT NEED JUSTICE

Victims need something more that justice or a class action settlement.

They need what we all need. MERCY and the ability to truly FORGIVE those who hurt them. The SBC has often failed them with the Gospel and with accountability and worst of all is failing us all by by NOT remaining faithful to the Word of the Lord IN AN INVESTIGATION that reads more like a gossip column or a Reddit Thread on the net. To be blunt the Sex abuse Report is shabby and amateurish and rehashes unproven 5 year old accusations from the news papers, One former Executive Committee Members tweets and a “he said /she said/ they maintain ” and awfully twisted tale of one former Southern Baptist President and a Florida Condo.

Still Baptist entity heads are going through the motions showing contrition and commitment and promises of change to their new masters…Diversity Equity and Inclusion and the new slave holder barrons of corporate compliance.

REMINDER – WOMEN ARE ALSO FALLEN !

A VERY serious FLAW with the #MeToo movement has been the presumptions it brings with it.

“Men are always guilty ” and of course “Women are always the victims” .

Why? Because in a world driven by “correctness” and blind to the reality put forth in the Gospel -societal trendiness and narratives rule. The reality of the Gospel falls on deaf ears . A lost culture cannot see itself or its problems rooted in the Biblical truths that we are all , men and women , fallen and sinful people ,tempted and capable of abuses and massive moral failures and helpless without the presence and power of the Holy Spirit to be anything else. People need Jesus.Men and Women need conviction- repentance -faith -salvation – and a new posture of forgiveness toward the sins of others who sin against them.

PLEASE REREAD THE LORD’S PRAYER FOLKS !

THE WORLD CAN AND WILL IGNORE THE WORD OF GOD AND SEEK TO REFUTE ITS TRUTH AND ESTABLISH ITS OWN.

ISN’T THIS EXACTLY WHAT THE BAPTIST LEADERSHIP HAVE PAID GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS AND ITS PR FIRM TO DO ?

When it comes to sin in the church – why would the SBC leadership submit itself- its people and its future to people and organizations whose self affirmed and boasted values ,visions , and goals are antithetical to it and the Word of God?

The Sex Abuse Report prepared by Guidepost Solutions is weak and does not contain much in the line of facts. IT WILL HOWEVER – be long on DE&I compliance and culture shifting demands that will impact Baptist life, families and churches for years.

GOD DOES IN FACT HAVE A DIVINE ORDER FOR FAMILY – FOR MEN- FOR WOMEN -FOR THE CHURCH- FOR BEING HUMAN – SEXUALITY – GENDER – PERSONAL IDENTITY. AND HE HAS A CLEAR MORAL COMPASS FOR PERSONAL CHOICES AND FOR ORDERING SOCIETY AND GOD’S JUSTICE.

It is simply very opposite of the current cultural winds. And everything from the new meaning of marriage (which in this writers state is now just “contract “-a piece of paper)-to the transhumanist virtual world and self reality – to radically inclusive sex education for 3 year olds to Disney’s apparent need to “Queer” the world and all the children in it. We can safely assume the Word of God and God Himself will not change.He will not bow His knee but does demand that every knee will bow to Him and confess that Jesus is Lord. So – taken at His Word – the church and every Christian can simply stand firm and not feel compelled to comply with the shifting narratives and latest ideals of the global citizen manifesto . The church and the Saints have a higher calling and a greater master…one Master. This is very clear in the scripture believers have pledged to take at face value and entrust for eternal hope. In Christ alone. Simple enough?

Apparently this is NOT SO CLEAR to many leaders inside the Southern Baptist.

Accommodation – Pacification – Compliance – Appeasement – Going Along to Get Along and a deadly form of compromise and addiction to outside funding and some warped pragmatic reasoning now rule the day.

BUT God is unchanged by cultural winds and the groundswell of open rebellion. He feels no need to keep His enemies close and happy. He has not made ten “suggestions” or tempered His Commandments by popular opinion polling or surveys. He is simply unmoved and HE knows better than anyone what the metrics of and requirements for global justice ARE. His Justice is NOT the justice that protects evil or justifies those who hide injustice BUT His knowledge and the Holy Standard which reflect His very nature are the only solid – untainted – and truly Redemptive Hope offered in a fallen world.

Few honestly think the world does not need fixing -right?

But can we fix it? Fallen Men and Women ?

Can it be fixed by removing barriers to societal equity ?

Can it be fixed by ever changing narratives built on the shifting sands of a wind blown culture and angry people making their own power plays for self interest and to protect their own hidden histories and agendas? No!

Can accountability or justice be purchased for $2 million or $2 Trillion before the courts of Caesar? No

Only God can truly change anything here .He does it one heart at a time with the Redemptive Power of the Gospel that boast-

2 Corinthians 5:19

“… that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not [a]imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation”

God Made humans and family and ordained marriage which is HIS own revelation of His relationship to HIS people – the church- which is the Bride of Christ.

Genesis 1: 27 So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.

This is what Biblically adherent Christians including Baptist say they believe.This is what Baptist leaders said they believe when they stood for the Bible.

This is the metric – the measure- the standard by which we are to view ourselves and the world around us AND GOD – and we ALL are stakeholders here.

Marriage—Christ and the Church

22 Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. 23 For the husband is head of the wife, as also Christ is head of the church; and He is the Savior of the body. 24 Therefore, just as the church is subject to Christ, so let the wives be to their own husbands in everything.

25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ also loved the church and gave Himself for her, 26 that He might sanctify and cleanse her with the washing of water by the word, 27 that He might present her to Himself a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle or any such thing, but that she should be holy and without blemish. 28 So husbands ought to love their own wives as their own bodies; he who loves his wife loves himself. 29 For no one ever hated his own flesh, but nourishes and cherishes it, just as the Lord does the church. 30 For we are members of His body, 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.”

ALL THIS IS UNDER ASSAULT AND – THANKS TO SBC LEADERS -IS NOW IN THE HANDS OF PEOPLE WHO HAVE NO RESPECT FOR IT & REFLECT VALUES TOTALLY OPPOSED TO IT.

GOD IS GOING TO JUDGE THOSE RESPONSIBLE.

Paul points out not only women;s fallen state like men but also some very simple Divine order for the family and the family of God :

Men and Women in the Church

1 Timothy 2

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.”

THE Tides are turning in the culture in many ways and just normal people are saying enough. The #METOO MOVEMENT IS EBBING AND LIKELY “DEAD” ACCORDING TO THE NEW YORK TIMES … So why have Baptist leaders succumb to corporate raiders pushing politically driven global ideologies to suppress truth and reshape the culture of corporations and society – all of which are DOOMED TO FAIL MISERABLY …and placed itself – the church – God’s bride into the hands of the modern day giants of culture who seek to “Defy the armies of the Living God ” and no doubt defy the Living God Himself?

Lets us ponder these realities set forth in Hebrews 10

The Just Live by Faith

26 For if we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there no longer remains a sacrifice for sins, 27 but a certain fearful expectation of judgment, and fiery indignation which will devour the adversaries. 28 Anyone who has rejected Moses’ law dies without mercy on the testimony of two or three witnesses. 29 Of how much worse punishment, do you suppose, will he be thought worthy who has trampled the Son of God underfoot, counted the blood of the covenant by which he was sanctified a common thing, and insulted the Spirit of grace? 30 For we know Him who said, “Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,” says the Lord. And again, “The Lord will judge His people.” 31 It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God.

LATEST LEADERSHIP NETWORK CHURCH PARADIGM : THE “METAVERSE CHURCH” DECEPTION

CAN THE BODY OF CHRIST SIMPLY BE SHIFTED OUT OF WHAT GOD HAS CALLED IT TO BE AND INTO ZUCKERBERG’S VISION OF THE WORLD HE AND OTHERS LIKE HIM WILL LORD OVER?

Rev Thomas Littleton

5/17/2022

For over four decades a subversive and seductive influence of outside money, socialist thinking, ego stroking, church paradigm shifting organization called Leadership Network has influenced pastors, church strategies, Christian media and entire movements with little notice from the average Joe. Bob Buford started LeadNet in 1984 to spread the influence and vision of Austrian Economics /management guru Peter Drucker from the corporate world and into the evangelical church . The same type of effort was carried out among Catholics.

Leadership Network gave us the cursed metrics which fueled the Church Growth Movement, Multi Site, Purpose Driven, “Internet Church” as well as leaders like Bill Hybels, Rick Warren, Ed Stetzer and a host of other Drucker indoctrinated thinkers who no longer understood the distinction between the Body of Christ and Corporate strategies and expansion schemes. Success has been measured in head counts and media blitz and the method has been coaching ego driven and ambitious young preachers toward the end game of socialist false Christianity leading congregants primed to become big time volunteers creating “Community” and serving as “giving units” to fuel the Drucker Three Legged Stool vision. The church of the future will be lockstep with globalist and tyrants who see it as a useful tool toward achieving there “great society”.

Drucker’s Frankfurt School influences from his youth have paid off well giving the evangelical church tainted vision SUPERSPREADERS like Tim Keller and Ed Stetzer ,Rick Warren ( and thousands upon thousands more) along with ever more obvious progressive globalist perverversions of the Gospel.Entire seminaries and denominations are now steeped in decades of these errors and blind to how far off the eternal Gospel path they have trodden.

Article from September 2021

EXCERPT FROM THE ERLC FACEBOOK GRANT ANNOUNCEMENT

“The project, Thacker said, will help answer such questions as:

  • What is the proper role of government in digital governance?
  • How do I disciple other people if they’re primarily being shaped by technology in their use and habits?
  • How do we champion free speech and religious freedom in an increasingly polarized society?

“The resources to be provided during the next 18 months consist of four major elements, he said: (1) A “state of digital governance report” that will present a portrait of current and future technological issues; (2) an evangelical Christian statement of principles on “content moderation and digital governance;” (3) a church resource kit scheduled to be released in the summer of 2022; and (4) two books to be published next year – “Following Jesus in the Digital Age” and “The Digital Public Square: Ethics and Religion in a Technological Society.” Thacker is writing the former for Broadman & Holman Publishing and editing the latter for B&H Academic.”

“Given the current state of debate over the proper role of free expression and religious freedom and digital governance,” the ERLC believes this is an important area in which to invest, Thacker told the trustees. It will produce “substantive resources” and “seek to equip the church in the digital age and allow us to advocate for these principles in this important arena,” he said.”

NOW ENTER THE METAVERSE MOVEMENT FROM LEADERSHIP NETWORK

https://leadnet.org/metaverse-church-summit/

4 AREAS OF FOCUS

  • METAVERSE DISCIPLE-MAKINGHow will metaverse technologies like VR, AR, mixed reality, and even artificial intelligence help complement the disciple-making process in the metaverse as well as in physical churches?
  • METAVERSE MISSION FIELDHow does engaging in metaverse communities like VR’s AltVR, VR Chat, Rec Room, Facebook Horizon, or other avatar-based communities open up a new mission field? The harvest is BIG. The workers?
  • METAVERSE CHURCHESHow does a metaverse church follow a biblical ecclesiology? Can a biblical church function in virtual reality? What will augmented reality do to strengthen the mission of the physical church?
  • METAVERSE TECHNOLOGIESHow will metaverse technologies like AI, machine learning, and even blockchain and cryptocurrencies, help physical churches and their mission? How will our culture’s move towards decentralization affect the church?

https://leadnet.org/metaverse-church-next/

THE WORLD IS CLOSER THAN EVER BEFORE!

Are we opened minded enough to use new ways to reach more people?

“Culturally we’re approaching the Metaverse, the third version of the Internet. The first version, the www, was all about information. The second version, web 2.0, was all about social aspects. The third version, web 3.0, is all about experiences.”

“As culture begins to adopt the Metaverse, we the church need to begin to explore our role in these new technological advancements. We must understand the Metaverse experience.”

“As the Metaverse continues to expand… Virtual Reality, Augmented Reality, Mixed Reality, Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Crypto… we should be looking at these technologies as opportunities to advance the Kingdom, not in the spirit of fear.”

“So, let’s explore how the Metaverse can expand our view of Disciple-making, create new opportunities in the Metaverse Mission Field, and multiply ecclesiologically stable Metaverse Churches.”

CONCLUSION

NOTHING COULD BE FARTHER FROM THE GOSPEL THAN TO MOVE THE BODY OF CHRIST TOWARD GLOBALIST VIRTUAL VISION

WHY? The reasons are many but the most simple and easily understood is the motivations and controls sought by those who own this emerging virtual world and what their vision for CONTROL limiting the function of the church and ability of believers to speak truth and BE SALT AND LIGHT in a world entering its darkest hour.

God is not calling the church to build the METAVERSE or rebuild the Tower of Bael.Instead He is calling her to come OUT of before it is judged by Him.

The Fall of Babylon the Great

18 After these things I saw another angel coming down from heaven, having great authority, and the earth was illuminated with his glory. And he cried mightily with a loud voice, saying, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and has become a dwelling place of demons, a prison for every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hated bird! For all the nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth have become rich through the abundance of her luxury.”

And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Render to her just as she rendered to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. In the measure that she glorified herself and lived luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’ 

GLOBALIST DREAM OF “REIMAGINING CHURCH REAL ESTATE” TO TURN CHURCHES INTO SLUM LORDS?

IN AN ONGOING SCHEME TO SEDUCE CHURCHES OUT OF GOSPEL FOCUS AND INTO GLOBAL SUSTAINABILITY INVESTING-THE HARD SELL IS ON FOR CHURCHES TO “DEVELOP AFFORDABLE HOUSING” IN TIDY PUBLIC/PRIVATE FAITH BASED PARTNERSHIPS UNDER GOVERNMENT OVERSIGHT.

Rev Thomas Littleton

4-26-2022

Recently this site reported on the rise of the “Christian Economic Forum ” as a “Davos for Christian Leaders” pushing “Faith Driven Investing” toward Global Sustainability Goals with World Economic Forum and BlackRock Inc. leaders and thinkers in tow.

If these efforts succeed the plan will grab a lions share of the the boasted $150 Trillion in wealth “in the hands of Christians” in the West. If the church and believers in mass buy in – then the giant sucking sound will the God entrusted resources of Christians and the churches being exploited in real time away from true Gospel eternal focus and on to “building a better world” and “building back better “as the globalist see it. If this is not the case then it behoves those selling the idea to prove they have no connection to WEF/ BlackRock/ Agenda 2030/Urbanization and the 17 UN Global Sustainability Goals. That denial is going to an impossible task given how openly evangelical leaders like Tim Keller, Ed Stetzer, Rick Warren,David Platt, J D Greear, Francis Collins and now many local pastors have aligned themselves with these partners and their goals.

THE CHURCH AS DEVELOPERS OF “AFFORDABLE HOUSING” DRIVEN BY EQUITY AND JUSTICE.

FAITH DRIVEN INVESTORS SELLING REIMAGING THE FUTURE OF CHURCH REAL ESTATE

FAITH DRIVEN INVESTORS THINK THEY HAVE THE FIX FOR THE CHURCHES REAL ESTATE AND FINANICIAL WOES.

The Church in America is Facing Strong Headwinds

“Moreover, the Church in America is not thriving. Initial estimates are that 30,000-70,000 churches will close their doors due to COVID, but even before COVID, the statistics did not look good. Even when COVID is far behind us, these fundamental issues will still be hindering the church unless they are addressed.”

  • 80% of churches are in plateau or decline.[2]
  • >60% of a decline in church revenues is projected over the next 30 years.[3] [4] [5]
  • ~50% of most church finances go to real estate.
  • 3,700 churches are closing annually, and this is projected to increase by 50% over the next 30 years.[6]

“With revenues declining quickly and half of its finances going to real estate that is actually hindering its operations, the Church desperately needs to reduce its infrastructure cost and increase efficiency in its operations. Like most organizations, the two biggest line items in a church budget are people and real estate. Most church staff already don’t make enough. Therefore, clearly the low hanging fruit for change is in the real estate.”

START DEVELOPING THE REAL ESTATE BECAUSE THE CHURCH IS DYING”

So the problem is the churches are dying.We might add from self inflicted wounds furthered along and sped up by Covid lockdowns and lockouts but ignore that the way for churches to turn the problem around would be to pray-evangelize – and make disciples. It appears too late for some to even recall this Biblical approach. In stead the church is seeking to align with secular interest and profit driven development to ensure its future. In short “the church is dying so it must start eating itself ” while becoming more and more yoked with Government agencies and global forces who have long wished to dismantle it !

ACCORDING TO FAITH DRIVEN INVESTORS REIMAGINING EFFORTS:

Facilities Are Hindering the Church’s Mission

“So, what if there was a better story for churches? What if we could reposition the church to turn these headwinds into a tailwind?”

“Before I answer those questions, it is important that you understand how facilities are hindering the Church’s mission, especially in urban environments where the largest populations exist.”

Most facilities hinder pastors.

Temporary facilities limit congregations.

The Church in America Has the Resources to Solve This Problem

“We need better models to give pastors a better chance. If we can free up pastors and significantly reduce their cost of occupancy for a quality space, then we might really be able to seize the Great Opportunity.”

The Way Forward

“Go employ a team of professionals to buy, renovate, lease-up, and then professionally manage all aspects of the real estate facilities for churches so that they can focus on their mission. Provide attractive and affordable facilities that offer a long-term home for multiple church tenants to share for Sunday services and programming throughout the week when they need the space. When they don’t need the entire space during the business hours of the weekdays, lease the children’s area to an anchor preschool tenant, and lease the kitchen, lobby, and sanctuary space to a coffee shop and coworking space that the church and community can use together. This is the third space that communities are looking for. Make it the living room of the community, and make it attractive to the unchurched so that you will give the Church instant credibility by creating an opportunity for the unchurched that did not exist before. Each of these uses will synergistically drive foot traffic for the other as well as subsidize the churches’ cost to rent. In doing so, you will place the proverbial “well” inside of the building so that divine collisions can occur with anyone who wants a cup of coffee, who drops their kids off at preschool, or who wants a desk with Wi-Fi.”

IN OTHER WORDS TAKE YOUR CHURCH INTO THE REAL ESTATE MARKET !!!

At the same time this discussion is ramping up to “Reimagine Church Real Estate” some popular secular and liberal Christian news outlets are pushing for churches to get into the “Affordable Housing Market” with public /private / faith based programs.

THE WASHINGTON POST

“Houses of faith are building affordable housing on their properties”

By Alejandra Molina

February 25, 2022

The project is a two-tower complex design that will include approximately 320 units of housing, 85 percent of which will be affordable. (Atlanta First United Methodist Church) from WASHPO ARTICLE

“Houses of worship own thousands of acres across the United States, and now through millions of dollars in new grants, congregations in Atlanta, New York, Baltimore, Miami and Seattle will be building affordable housing on their properties.”

“The national nonprofit Enterprise Community Partners on Wednesday announced $8.5 million in grants from the Wells Fargo Foundation to help houses of worship convert underutilized land into affordable homes and community facilities. The effort was launched at Atlanta First United Methodist Church.”

“This money will help build roughly 6,000 affordable homes, Enterprise said.”

ENTER ENTERPISE COMMUNITY PARTNERS –

ALL ABOUT THE INEQUITIES AND SYSTEMIC RACISM IN HOUSING

“Home is where life happens, where plans are made and futures begin. The foundation for dignity, health, education, wealth and community. Yet rents keep going up, paychecks don’t keep pace, and good homes in strong neighborhoods are increasingly out of reach. The system doesn’t work. It must be changed, and it must be changed by us.”

“Enterprise has the breadth, scale and expertise to do it. We support community development organizations on the ground. We aggregate and invest capital for impact in homes and communities. We advance housing policy at every level of government. We build and manage communities ourselves. Everything we do is informed by the residents we serve.”

“Together with our partners, we focus on the greatest need – the massive shortage of affordable rental homes – to achieve three goals:

1. Increase the supply of affordable homes

2. Advance racial equity after decades of systematic racism in housing

3. Support residents and strengthen communities to be resilient to the unpredictable and make upward mobility possible”

Since 1982, we have invested $44 billion and created 781,000 homes across all 50 states. All to make home and community places of pride, power and belonging.

“We are here for impact. We are here for change. Join us”

“Enterprise’s Faith-Based Development Initiative launched in 2006 in the Mid-Atlantic region, where it has helped faith-based organizations create or preserve more than 1,500 affordable homes and one community-based health clinic.”

COMMUNITY FACILITIES -SOCIAL SERVICES – HEALTH CARE-WELFARE VIA CHURCHES

“WEBINAR : Higher Ground: Developing Affordable Housing & Community Facilities in Partnership with Faith Communities”

( NOTE : A COMMUNITY BASED HEALTH CLINIC WILL INVOLVE HHS AND FURTHER IMPLEMENT THE “AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE ACT “GOALS OF SOCIALIZED MEDICINE GOALS.)

“It’s this notion of there’s a compelling human need that a house of worship exists in and it’s sitting on a resource. It becomes a stewardship issue. Is this something that God is calling us to do … that allows us to be good and faithful stewards to have more impact?” David Bowers, vice president at Enterprise Community Partners, told Religion News Service.”

“Leveraging Property Owned by Faith-Based Organizations”

“The rising acquisition cost of developable land, among other factors like the rise in construction material costs and shortage in skilled construction labor, has been driving the cost of residential development, impacting developers’ ability to create affordable homes. Through effective partnerships and informed decision-making processes, faith-based organizations (FBOs) who own underutilized or vacant property are able to repurpose their property to create affordable homes and public benefit.”

“This white paper aims to assist FBOs and community stakeholders interested in advancing this strategy with:

  1. Understanding what it takes to successfully undertake this solution
  2. Becoming familiar with different paths that can be pursued to implement this solution. “

“IMPACT AREAS ” FROM ENTERPRISE COMMUNITY PARTNERS

“A massive shortage of affordable rental homes: it’s the greatest problem we’re up against. Meanwhile, rents keep going up, paychecks don’t keep pace, and good homes in strong neighborhoods are increasingly out of reach for millions of families.”

“This is a generational challenge, but a solvable one – when we sharpen our focus. It’s why we channel our work into six impact areas that make the greatest difference for systems, people and communities across the country.”

Preservation & Production

“America’s housing crisis requires new thinking and resources to preserve and produce exponentially more rental homes that families can afford.”

Racial Equity

“Racial equity is at the center of our work. It’s how we dismantle the legacy of systematic racism in housing and close the growing racial wealth gap in America.”

Resilience

“As a national leader in resilience, we support and invest in people and communities so they can better withstand the effects of our changing climate and build more sustainable futures.”

Upward Mobility

“Upward mobility starts at home. But if you can’t find a home you can afford, or the cost of rent takes too much out of your paycheck, how can you invest in your future? It’s all added up to a massive racial wealth gap – one we’re working to close.”

DOUBTLESS IN SOME CASES CHURCHES WILL PREFER TO SELL THESE HOUSING DEVELOPMENTS AND THERE WILL BE GRANTS AND FIRST TIME BUYER $$$ FOR THAT AS WELL .

FUNDING IS BEING INCENTIVISED FROM THE PRIVATE SECTOR INTO NON PROFITS AND FAITH BASED COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMS

“According the Religion News Service April 23 2022 follow up article -Wells Fargo Foundation is funding some of the effort in Florida churches through grants.”

“The national nonprofit Enterprise Community Partners on Thursday (April 21) announced $1.3 million in grant funding from the Wells Fargo Foundation that would go toward helping 15 South Florida congregations convert underused church property. “

“The nonprofit will assist clergy, who may lack the resources or knowledge to cut housing deals, in navigating the development process, negotiating long-term ground lease agreements and vetting development partners, such as architects and designers. “

These partnerships as said to be have begun in some fashion in 2006 but are clearly scaling up. Other cities with churches involved include:

“So far, $8.5 million has been committed in a new push to help congregations in Atlanta, New York, Baltimore, Miami and Seattle build affordable housing on their properties.”

NOT A NEW TREND BUT ONE WHICH IS SCALING UP

HUD AND OTHER GOVERNMENT PARTNERS HAVE BEEN IN THE GAME FOR A WHILE.

Since the Obama administration’s expansion of the Faith Based Partnership Grant program -some churches have used HUD and other FBP grants to purchase dilapidated houses in blighted areas and rehab them -then rent them out as Section 8 subsidized housing. So the churches use grant funding to purchase and rehab the properties ( often with volunteer labor ) AND in turn possibly receive more government money through the rent. Sweet deal for churches but ….NOW the tables are turning to exploit the churches resources for the same idea- landlording !

HOUSING THE HOMELESS :A FOOLS ERRAND ?

RNS also reported that “Black churches in Southern California are using their land to build houses for homeless people’.

This author having worked IN MINISTRY in urban areas for over 4 1/2 decades can attest to the reality that the government has long tried to end homelessness while ignoring many of the reasons why people are homeless. Drugs, Alcohol, Mental Illness, Lawlessness, and the simple fact that transient living appeals to some people are just not spoken of in Equity and Justice narratives. So no one is saying how the churches think to reverse these forces while becoming focused on grant funding, income streams , Community Development and “racial justice” instead of the Gospel.

THIS IS ALL DRUCKERISM /FAITH BASED PARTNERSHIPS AT THERE WORST AND IT IS AS GOOD AS IT IS GOING TO GET. ALL IS DOWNHILL FROM HERE .

THE WHITE HOUSE IS IN ON THE ACTION PUSHING FOR “AFFORDABLE HOUSING”

“While the Administration continues to do everything in its power to stabilize families who are at risk of losing their homes because of the economic impact of the pandemic, we still have more work to do. President Biden and Vice President Harris believe we need to do more than build back to the way things were before. We need to build back better.”

“While Congress works toward passing the Build Back Better Agenda, which includes an historic investment in building new homes and making existing housing safer, healthier, and more energy efficient, the President knows that we can’t wait to take action. The large and long-standing gap between the supply and demand of affordable homes for both renters and homeowners makes it harder for families to buy their first home and drives up the cost of rent. Higher housing costs also crowd out other investments families can and should make to improve their lives, such as investments in education.”

“From the expansion of the Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) to major investments in the HOME Investment Partnerships program, the Housing Trust Fund, and the Capital Magnet Fund, the Build Back Better Agenda will make it easier for more Americans to find quality, affordable places to live.”

“But even before Congress passes the Build Back Better Agenda, agencies across the federal government are taking action to boost the supply of quality, affordable homes in a manner that will make rental homes more available and more affordable over the next three years. Specifically, agencies are announcing today that they are:”

Making Funding Available for Affordable Housing Production Under the Capital Magnet Fund: The Treasury Department is preparing to issue a notice of funding availability for the Capital Magnet Fund (CMF), including changes to strongly encourage affordable housing production. The CMF is a competitive grant program for Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) and non-profit housing groups funded by allocations made each year from Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. Funds must be used to leverage housing and economic development investments at least ten times the size of the award amount. This year’s historic pool of $383 million in available funding will facilitate the production of affordable housing units throughout the country.”

“HISTORIC POOL OF $383 MILLION DOLLARS”- THAT PLUS PRIVATE CAPITAL INFUSED AND WHAT DO YOU GET? ANOTHER GOVERNMENT GOLD RUSH FOR PASTORS.

CONCLUSION

Faith Driven Investors have made the idea of “Reimagining Church Real Estate” a mainstream consideration but the federal and private dollars and partnerships provided by the Community Development non-profits are putting the lipstick (and the funding ) on the proverbial pig of churches becoming LANDLORDS and hubs for justice driven investment and “affordable housing”. The rosy pictures painted by the Federal Government must be considered through the lens of the failed politically driven SLUM LORDING which the Federal Government has attempted in now crumbling inner cities and urban areas for two generations. Ask those people who have tried to live in the unlivable slums many of which have now been razed to the ground to prevent homeless “squating ” and gang activity , drug labs accounting for massive surges in crime , filth, gang turf wars and perpetuating poverty.

Also consider this entire proposed remedy to housing COMES INTO PLAY through the not so grand designs of Agenda 2030 which is intended to force people out of home ownership and into public housing in their celebrated “global cities” where ,according the WEF boast-“you will own nothing and you will be happy”. Communist countries have tried this failed model for generations. So ask any of those who have friends or loved ones stuck in these Marxist “Utopias” .They can attest to the universal poverty, depression and deprivation that comes with the territory. Utopia it is not.

An honest look at history proves that these big money dumps attract the worst kind of hucksters, hustlers, thieves and Judas Iscariots. Clergy have horrific track records when dealing with big money and who is going to track where the money goes in programs where political ends justify the means? No this is a bad idea AND the churches remaining assets will be involved in the scheme and if /when they fail- nothing will be left .The church will have been exploited out of resources God entrusted to it for the Gospel- not for Global Goals , Community Development or preachers, elders personal enrichment .

Then add to the the cost of this fools errand the grave loss to the churches and to Christians who must abandon the Gospel to ensure participation in this justice and equity, diversity and inclusion driven program and its critical and socialist economic theory driven culture lest they “discriminate” and lose their partnerships. Consider a future where the churches have little more to speak into the community that to offer them the latest version of government cheese on the rat trap of perpetual impoverishment and dependence. This is NOT THE GOSPEL.This is mutually assured destruction of the church and the community it is hoping to serve.

THE TYRANNY OF “THE GREAT NARRATIVE”: ESCAPING THE TOWER OF BABEL BY HOLDING FORTH THE GOSPEL

SOME OF THE GREATEST OPPOSITION TO THE WORD OF GOD THAT EXIST TODAY ARE THE MOUNTING NARRATIVES OF UNBELIEF WITHIN AND SOUL DESTROYING GLOBALIST GOALS IN THE NAME OF EQUITY/ INCLUSION AND A “BETTER WORLD” WITHOUT.

Rev Thomas Littleton

4/23/2022

Towers of Babel are nothing new in a world which seeks to defy God with it’s narratives.

WEF KLAUS SCHWAB COHORT YUVAL NOAH HARARI DELUSIONS OF HUMAN DEITY

The Great Narrative is selling “justice, economic, political, societal and even human transformation. It uses declining populations like those of Japan to assert that less humanity is better for everyone in a “plateaued civilization ” of happiness. It asserts that “equity”- “sustainability”- “transformation” and even “transhumanism” and a world “free or corruption” (the most laughable assertion of all ) are the welcome waves of the future built upon the Forth Industrial Revolution which will merge developing advancements in biology and technology.

The Great Narrative’s global goals are to be the reunited collective voice of an awakening humanity crying in the wilderness awaiting a savior who happens to be nothing more than the latest IDOL animated by the voices of “50 Global Thinkers”, some billionaires and the collusion of think tanks and their lap dog global media outlets.

MAKE NO MISTAKE BABYLON IS RISING AND ITS TOWER IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Babylon is rising .The TOWER of defiance is being built stone upon stone. This tower is unlike the ancient tower only in that it is being built in the FACE of it’s own hopeless future given the outcome of the original venture and that now the Divine judgement of confused voices from the first attempt can be overcome with a single message spoken by many voices.. in a GREAT NARRATIVE which can re-unify and harmonize those voices into ONE.

The iron FIST of the emerging forces behind the “Better Future” is the “TYRANNY OF THE NARRATIVE” which will seek ( but not succeed ) to cancel, destroy , and erase every remnant of the voice of truth or freedom and especially the Voices of Faith and the Prophetic Voice of the Spirit of Christ in the mouths of His Prophets.

This is the real clash of the “Titans of Globalism” vs the Son of the Living God and His living stones God has and is constricting for HIS habitation . Though the conflict is noted in Revelation and is the most intense moment to unfold in human history- the outcome is as certain as the sun (and The Son ) will rise tomorrow.

Psalm 2 is unfolding before our eyes.

King James Version for poetic beauty and justice:

Why do the heathen rage, and the people imagine a vain thing?

The kings of the earth set themselves, and the rulers take counsel together, against the Lord, and against his anointed, saying,

Let us break their bands asunder, and cast away their cords from us.

He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

Then shall he speak unto them in his wrath, and vex them in his sore displeasure.

Yet have I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion.

I will declare the decree: the Lord hath said unto me, Thou art my Son; this day have I begotten thee.

Ask of me, and I shall give thee the heathen for thine inheritance, and the uttermost parts of the earth for thy possession.

Thou shalt break them with a rod of iron; thou shalt dash them in pieces like a potter’s vessel.

10 Be wise now therefore, O ye kings: be instructed, ye judges of the earth.

11 Serve the Lord with fear, and rejoice with trembling.

12 Kiss the Son, lest he be angry, and ye perish from the way, when his wrath is kindled but a little. Blessed are all they that put their trust in him

Even So Come Lord Jesus.

SIGNS OF THE TIMES

The surest sign of the times today is the reunification of the voices of mankind in a single NARRATIVE seeking to once again unify the efforts of mankind to defy the God of heaven and earth. In past generations Christians read their Bibles and therefore viewed the world around them with a healthy skepticism. It would have been understood to be gullible, ignorant and even foolish to allow the tables to be turned and the Word of God to be subjected to the doubting and hateful voices of opposition. But a people who choose the collective ignorance of human voices over the Voice of Him who has already promised to Shake everything that can be shaken are ushering in their own demise.

Isaiah asked the question that must be echoing through heaven at this very moment.

Isaiah 53:1
“Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?”

Where can we find those in this generation who will dare to trust the Voice of Him by whose Words the worlds were framed OVER the emaciated narrative of those who think that they will save the world without God?

THE GREAT NARRATIVE TO UPHOLD THE GREAT RESET

WHAT IS IT -WHERE DID IT COME FROM -AND WHY IT MUST BE REJECTED BY FAITHFUL BELIEVERS AND FREEDOM LOVERS EVERYWHERE.

According to the modern day builders of the new Tower of Babel,The World Economic Forum ,its “50 Global Thinkers” and global banking cabal- the world is in crisis and it must be saved. Of course it is they who must save it and define its future. The world must be saved from itself ,from unsustainable development and consumption, from inequity and injustice, from climate change and the globes great contaminate …a swelling human population. The masses trust in narratives of nationalism and faith must be dealt with. The “Values” boasted by and contained in “The Great Narrative” must become the values of the new society and unquestioned faith in it’s leaders and idolatrous vision must become the uniting faith of a global spirituality shaped by their hands ,ideals and idolatrous arrogance.

This salvation is all to come about by the Great Reset necessitated by the Pandemic and a RESPONSE to it which were all planned well in advance. The required element for sustaining an unprecedented global take over is a “Great Narrative For a Better Future” and they have one firmly in hand and articulated. The only problem is cutting off every source of “FAKE NEWS” which stands in opposition to the effort and the narrative that must support and sustain it. THIS includes above all silencing the fixed reality of Biblical TRUTH and the timeless warnings of Biblical Prophesy which has exposed such thinking from the Garden to Daniel to the Isle of Patmos.

MAKE NO MISTAKE -THE GREAT NARRATIVE IS THE SIRENS SONG OF AN ANTI-CHRIST REGIME

THE GREAT RESET

“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.”

2030 TIMELINE TO SEAL THE DEAL

“We’ve built a 3D virtual environment about the Sustainable Development Goals and the champions working to achieve them by 2030.”

THE GREAT NARRATIVE

WEF LEADERS SCHWAB AND MALLERET REVEAL THE GAME PLAN

FOREWORD

“We live in times of unprecedented change and have, as never before, the responsibility and potential to build a better future together.”

“Times of unprecedented change, with major economic, environmental, geopolitical, societal and technological challenges that coincide and amplify each other, require unprecedented action. Premised on the belief that we have both a responsibility and the potential to respond to these issues, The Great Narrative is a call to collective and individual action. The thinking behind the book is inspired by a profound conviction that to ensure a better future for humankind, the world needs to be more resilient, more equitable and more sustainable.”

“In COVID 19: The Great Reset, published in July 2020, we raised the curtain on these issues. The Great Narrative places a cast of possible solutions to them on centre stage. What the epilogue to our human saga will be will depend on which narrative prevails.”

“Why do narratives matter? As human beings and social animals, we are storytelling creatures, and the stories we tell (the narratives) are our fundamental tool of communication and transmission. Narratives are how we make sense of life; they provide us with a context, thanks to which we can better interpret, understand and respond to the facts we observe. Most importantly, compelling narratives have the power to inspire us to act. But why a single great narrative? Because the constellation of important interrelated stories that this book offers coalesce around one central story. It addresses a broad spectrum of issues aiming to shed light on what’s coming and to offer some clarity on our options in terms of a collective response. Even so, The Great Narrative proposes a framework for future action, not a prescription.”

The Great Narrative expresses our personal convictions about the best way forward. We recognize that the problems we collectively face are considerable, but we also believe that solutions do exist and are within our grasp. In that sense, it is a hopeful book that categorically rejects the doomsday mindset consigning humanity to a future of oblivion. Human creativity, ingenuity and innate sociality are much too powerful for that and can prevail.”

“Our views and convictions are informed by our humanistic values: the book is evidence-based and informed by science. It is also underpinned by 50 conversations that took place with foremost global thinkers and opinion-makers representing a variety of academic disciplines and points of view. Some corroborated our convictions. Others challenged them. All enriched our thinking. We are grateful to them.”

THE POWER OF NARRATIVES

The power of narratives

“As the most effective of conduits for ideas, narratives have the unique power to help us determine what’s going on, what lies ahead and what needs to be done, hence the title of this book. Defined in the simplest possible terms, a narrative is a story about something. More aptly for the purpose of The Great Narrative, it is also “a way of presenting or understanding a situation or series of events that reflects and promotes a particular point of view or set of values”.[v]Some of the “narrators” we interviewed for this book go further, like John Hagel who draws a distinction between stories and narratives: “Stories are self-contained – they have a beginning, a middle and end (…). Narratives [are] open-ended. There is no resolution yet. There’s some kind of big threat or opportunity out in the future and it’s not yet clear whether it will be addressed. The resolution of the narrative hinges on you – the people being addressed by the narrative. Your choices and actions will help to determine how the narrative plays out.”

“Exposing and discussing the ideas embedded in diverse narratives is what this book is all about. Moving them forward in the realms of decision-making and policy is also part of our endeavour. Actions, solutions and policies always begin with a “big” idea. Big ideas not only power our economies (they are the real engine of economic growth), but they also drive the world. When a big idea breaks through and becomes influential, it can turn into a viral narrative: it takes off and becomes contagious, making its way into policies as well as business and investors’ decisions. Through the sheer work and imagination of those who originate them, ideas spur creativity and become the foundation of discovery, innovation and change. They can also become a call to action. If ideas were to be considered as an economic good, economists would call them in their jargon a “non-excludable” and “non-rival” good. Ideas are non-excludable because of their free nature: nobody can effectively be excluded from consuming (or generating) an idea. Ideas are also non-rival because they can be utilized by someone without reducing their availability to others: all can enjoy “consuming” an idea without preventing others from doing so. As the saying goes: “If I give you a dollar and you give me a dollar, each of us will only have one dollar. But if you give me one idea and I give you another idea, we will both have two ideas.” This specific feature of ideas bestows them “with a natural property to generate aggregate nondecreasing returns to scale”.[ix] Put in plain language: the more the better, and the more ideas we have, the more they will generate! The Great Narrative offers a profusion of interesting and sometimes intriguing ideas mediated by the interviews we conducted with 50 global thinkers and opinion-makers.”

“This book is about ideas and how they may coalesce to form a Great Narrative. “

TRUTHFUL MEDIA-SOCIAL MEDIA- FRANK SPEECH VALUES BEWARE

OPPOSITION TO THE GREAT NARRATIVE AND FREE SPEECH FORUMS LIKE SOCIAL MEDIA POSE A THREAT WHICH MUST BE SILENCED AS “FAKE NEWS”

WEF- “Social media and the age of fake news”

“Falsehoods, misinformation, disinformation and conspiracies have always existed, but today they are served and magnified by the dominance and reach of social media and the virality of fake news. Furthermore, the manner in which social media now structure the communication between individuals can affect the collective ability of certain groups to form reliable beliefs. This manifests in two ways. (1) We can opt, as we so often do on social media, only to interact with people who share our beliefs and refuse to do so with people who challenge them. In the process, by virtue of only connecting with those who think like us, we lose true connectivity and close down channels of vital communication. This creates partitions and polarization. (2) All sorts of influencers, be they government agencies, industry groups or even individuals, now have direct access to “ready-made” large groups of people with whom they can create a relation of trust and dependency, thus aggravating and even inflaming polarization. It should come as no surprise that research conducted during the pandemic has exposed a link between COVID-related uncertainty and anxiety and an increased likelihood of adhering to conspiracy theories.[iv] This is part of the reason why powerful anti-science movements prolong the waning of the COVID-19 pandemic, hindering both public health and, more fundamentally, our ability to move forward in unison. Beyond the limits of the pandemic, the abundance of fake news and its ability to magnify and manipulate polarization hinders our ability to deal successfully with the momentous collective action problems that humanity faces.”

“In light of this, how can we best understand the necessity and relevance of the changes that are coming, the way we can influence their trajectory, and the role that systemic connectivity, social media and fake news play in all this? This is hard and there is no one simple answer. We must respond to questions like: What do we do next? What choices do we want to make? How can we fix what doesn’t work? How can we put in place the corresponding new policies and solutions? How can we grasp the ideas that underpin them? How can we make these ideas palatable so that a large majority of citizens embrace them? The magnitude of the task is head-spinning! Its complexity far exceeds the cognitive capabilities of any single individual or the collective understanding of any single academic discipline and/or professional practice. The reason is straightforward: academics and other professionals tend to excel at thinking in a narrow field and to do so rely on a particular conceptual and methodological framework, leaving little or no time to connect with other disciplines or professions. This can and often does result in a shared disquiet of being both overwhelmed by the complexity of the task and having a limited understanding of its scope. Take the concatenation between economic, geopolitical, societal, technological and environmental issues as an example. Apart from the obvious cognitive limitations that an overload of information and rising complexity impose upon us, we are all restricted in our understanding of things by the boundaries of our professional lives. If we are an economist, we specialize in economics and find it hard to grasp what’s happening in other fields, like geopolitics, technology or the environment. If we are an artificial intelligence (AI) specialist, we may find it difficult to comprehend what happens in the realm of social sciences and to understand the extent to which culture and social norms dictate how or if societies will “adopt” and adapt to new technologies. And so on. The point is this: we all tend to operate in our silos and often fail to connect the indispensable dots between disparate fields. Therefore, our response to new facts or situations and how we make sense of the world is over reliant on, and ultimately shaped by, how those people we know, or trust, are doing so. This fundamental process of exchanging, understanding and evaluation takes place via stories, or narratives.”

THE GREAT NARRATIVE THINKERS LABEL THE GOSPEL FAKE NEWS.

SOME THINGS THE WEF AND THE GREAT NARRATIVES GLOBAL THINKERS HAVE TO SAY ABOUT RELIGION , JESUS , CHRISTIANS AND THE GOSPEL :

 “Sapiens – A Brief History of Humankind Yuval Noah Harari”

The above book is written by a primary assistant to Klaus Schwab and is endorsed by key leaders/ thinkers AND MEDIA behind the Great Narrative .

FROM “GATES NOTES” INTERVIEW WITH YUVAL NOAH HARARI
Harari being interviewed by Mark Zuckerberg who used FACEBOOK to control “fake News” . From Meta (NYT )

“From a renowned historian comes a groundbreaking narrative of humanity’s creation and evolution—a #1 international bestseller—that explores the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be “human.”

“One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only one—homo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us?”

“Most books about the history of humanity pursue either a historical or a biological approach, but Dr. Yuval Noah Harari breaks the mold with this highly original book that begins about 70,000 years ago with the appearance of modern cognition. From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, Sapiens integrates history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas.”

“Dr. Harari also compels us to look ahead, because over the last few decades humans have begun to bend laws of natural selection that have governed life for the past four billion years. We are acquiring the ability to design not only the world around us, but also ourselves. Where is this leading us, and what do we want to become?”

“Featuring 27 photographs, 6 maps, and 25 illustrations/diagrams, this provocative and insightful work is sure to spark debate and is essential reading for aficionados of Jared Diamond, James Gleick, Matt Ridley, Robert Wright, and Sharon Moalem.”

CHRISTIAN” BUY IN – IN THE FACE OR BLATANT BLASPEMY IS HELPING SHAPE A GLOBAL FALSE SPIRITUALITY AND AN APOSTATE CHURCH

Though the current Pope and religious leaders from around the world have given nod to support of Global Sustainability Goals and the Great Narrative , including a growing number of evangelical Christian leaders, the agenda of world dominion economically and socially are not poised to advance the cause of religion in general or of the Gospel in particular.

WEF HAS A LONG HISTORY OF ENGAGING “EVANGELICAL LEADERS” FOR ITS MESSAGING

Here are a few things WEF thinker and Klaus Schwab assistant  Yuval Noah Harari has to say about humanity ,Christianity and Jesus

“You could never convince a monkey to give you a banana by promising him limitless bananas after death in monkey heaven.” “How do you cause people to believe in an imagined order such as Christianity, democracy or capitalism? First, you never admit that the order is imagined.”

“Is there anything more dangerous than dissatisfied and irresponsible gods who don’t know what they want?”

“As far as we can tell from a purely scientific viewpoint, human life has absolutely no meaning. Humans are the outcome of blind evolutionary processes that operate without goal or purpose. Our actions are not part of some divine cosmic plan, and if planet earth were to blow up tomorrow morning, the universe would probably keep going about its business as usual. As far as we can tell at this point, human subjectivity would not be missed. Hence any meaning that people inscribe to their lives is just a delusion.”

“Voltaire said about God that ‘there is no God, but don’t tell that to my servant, lest he murder me at night’. Hammurabi would have said the same about his principle of hierarchy, and Thomas Jefferson about human rights. Homo sapiens has no natural rights, just as spiders, hyenas and chimpanzees have no natural rights. But don’t tell that to our servants, lest they murder us at night.”

“Large numbers of strangers can cooperate successfully by believing in common myths. Any large-scale human cooperation – whether a modern state, a medieval church, an ancient city or an archaic tribe – is rooted in common myths that exist only in people’s collective imagination.”

ON HUMANITY AND IT’S “USELESSNESS IN THE FUTURE “

“The crucial problem isn’t creating new jobs. The crucial problem is creating new jobs that humans perform better than algorithms. Consequently, by 2050 a new class of people might emerge – the useless class. People who are not just unemployed, but unemployable.”

“The same technology that renders humans useless might also make it feasible to feed and support the unemployable masses through some scheme of universal basic income. The real problem will then be to keep the masses occupied and content. People must engage in purposeful activities, or they go crazy. So what will the useless class do all day?”

“One answer might be computer games. Economically redundant people might spend increasing amounts of time within 3D virtual reality worlds, which would provide them with far more excitement and emotional engagement than the “real world” outside. This, in fact, is a very old solution. For thousands of years, billions of people have found meaning in playing virtual reality games. In the past, we have called these virtual reality games “religions”

“What is a religion if not a big virtual reality game played by millions of people together? Religions such as Islam and Christianity invent imaginary laws, such as “don’t eat pork”, “repeat the same prayers a set number of times each day”, “don’t have sex with somebody from your own gender” and so forth. These laws exist only in the human imagination. No natural law requires the repetition of magical formulas, and no natural law forbids homosexuality or eating pork. Muslims and Christians go through life trying to gain points in their favorite virtual reality game. If you pray every day, you get points. If you forget to pray, you lose points. If by the end of your life you gain enough points, then after you die you go to the next level of the game (aka heaven).”

“As religions show us, the virtual reality need not be encased inside an isolated box. Rather, it can be superimposed on the physical reality. In the past this was done with the human imagination and with sacred books, and in the 21st century it can be done with smartphones.”

“Some time ago I went with my six-year-old nephew Matan to hunt for Pokémon. As we walked down the street, Matan kept looking at his smartphone, which enabled him to spot Pokémon all around us. I didn’t see any Pokémon at all, because I didn’t carry a smartphone. Then we saw two others kids on the street who were hunting the same Pokémon, and we almost got into a fight with them. It struck me how similar the situation was to the conflict between Jews and Muslims about the holy city of Jerusalem. When you look at the objective reality of Jerusalem, all you see are stones and buildings. There is no holiness anywhere. But when you look through the medium of smartbooks (such as the Bible and the Qur’an), you see holy places and angels everywhere.”

DEATH DEFYING ARROGANCE

“Dr. Yuval Noah Harari, Advisor To Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum, The big economic and political question of the 21st century will be “What do we need humans for of what do we need so many humans for “… He goes on to say “Humans Are Uselss “What do we need humans for?“ “Keep them happy with drugs and computer games.” ( From April 2022 interview WEF )

“You don’t have any answer in the Bible on what to do when humans are no longer useful in the economy. You need a completely new ideology and a completely new religion and they are likely to emerge from Silicon Valley and not from the Middle East. And they will give people vision based on technology.Everything that the old religions promised, happiness, justice and even eternal life will be here on earth and not in eternity with the help of some supernatural being.”

“In the 300 years of the crucifixion of Christ to the conversion of Emperor Constantine, polytheistic Roman emperors initiated no more than four general persecutions of Christians. Local administrators and governors incited some anti-Christian violence of their own. Still, if we combine all the victims of all these persecutions, it turns out that in these three centuries the polytheistic Romans killed no more than a few thousand Christians. In contrast, over the course, of the next 1,500 years, Christians slaughtered Christians by the millions, to defend slightly different interpretations of the religion of love and compassion.”

HUMANS HAVING SOULS OR FREE WILL “THATS OVER”

“The big process that is happening in the world right now is being able to hack humans and to know what makes you go …human are hackable animals .This whole idea that humans have this soul of spirit or free will and no one knows what’s happening inside me so what ever I choose in the election or in the supermarket …THAT IS over… I don’t think the idea of free will is very interesting or essential .It has been essential in Western civilization because of some basically theological mistake made thousands of years ago.But really its a misunderstanding of the human condition. We have all these myths of free will .This is a myth that served us well for centuries but now it is becoming dangerous .

ON “JESUS RISING FROM THE DEAD AND BEING THE SON OF GOD.THIS IS FAKE NEWS “

GREAT NARRATIVE THINKER THINKING OUT LOUD

“All these stories of Jesus rising from the dead and being the Son of God this is FAKE NEWS “

ON HUMAN SEXUALITY AND RELIGION

(NOTE :  Yuval Noah Harari IS A BUDDHIST -IS MARRIED TO A MAN SO HAS HIS OWN REASONS FOR REJECTING THE WORD OF GOD.ON JESUS EXCLUSIVE POSITION AS SAVIOR AND ON HUMAN SEXUALITY AND GENDER)

“Almost every religion wanted to reality change human sexuality or limit it but couldn’t …now think if you can really start messing with human biology what will be the result of these sexual fantasies of different religions and ideologies?

“Great gods can send us rain, social institutions can provide justice and good healthcare, and lucky coincidences can turn us into millionaires, but none of them can change our basic mental patterns. Hence even the greatest kings are doomed to live in angst, constantly fleeing grief and anguish, forever chasing after greater pleasures…Buddhism does not deny the existence of gods—they are described as powerful beings who can bring rains and victories—but they have no influence on the law that suffering arises from craving. If the mind of a person is free of all craving, no god can make him miserable. Conversely, once craving arises in a person’s mind, all the gods in the universe cannot save him from suffering.”

THE GOSPEL BY CONTRAST

1 Timothy 2:5-6

For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time,

Acts 4:12

12 Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”

2ND CORINTHIANS 5 :12-21

Be Reconciled to God

12 For we do not commend ourselves again to you, but give you opportunity to boast on our behalf, that you may have an answer for those who boast in appearance and not in heart. 13 For if we are beside ourselves, it is for God; or if we are of sound mind, it is for you. 14 For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; 15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again.

16 Therefore, from now on, we regard no one according to the flesh. Even though we have known Christ according to the flesh, yet now we know Him thus no longer. 17 Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. 18 Now all things are of God, who has reconciled us to Himself through Jesus Christ, and has given us the ministry of reconciliation, 19 that is, that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself, not [d]imputing their trespasses to them, and has committed to us the word of reconciliation.

20 Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us: we implore you on Christ’s behalf, be reconciled to God. 21 For He made Him who knew no sin to be sin for us, that we might become the righteousness of God in Him.”

A NARRATIVE OR SET OF TALKING POINTS COMPATIBLE WITH THE GOSPEL AND THE EXCLUSIVE REALITY AND CLAIMS OF SALVATION IN JESUS ALONE?

IN CONCLUSION – REBUILDING THE TOWER OF BABEL

There is nothing more clear than the global reach of The Great Narrative as it seeks to redefine humanity, tamper with God’s creation ,assert a false salvation and “save the earth and humanity from itself while it seeks to replace historic religions and in particular the historical and Biblical truth of Jesus -the Christ- the Son of the Living God. For Christians and especially Christian leaders – this narrative is to be understood as nothing more that the empty and scripted animated voice of the IDOL OF GLOBALIST utopianism. IT IS the effort to form once again a regime to crush human faith and human freedom and humanity as made in the image of God.

STILL SOME FOOLISH DECEIVERS FROM THE “CHRISTIAN REALM” HAVE JOINED IN THE REBUILDING OF THE TOWER OF BABEL

Leaders who continue to maintain that they speak for the God of the Bible like Rick Warren, Francis Collins (both WEF participants )Tim Keller, Ed Stetzer, JD Greear, David Platt and the garden variety TARES of the evangelical field have been willing join in this doomed endeavor. They are working with THE VERY think tanks and media outlets and even a “Christian Economic Forum ” aka “Davos For Christian Leaders” to lure Christian “Faith Driven Investors” into helping finance construction the new Tower of Babel.

WEF CAN BOAST IT HAS ALLIES DEEP INSIDE THE EVANGELICAL COMMUNITY

“A Christian may be a capitalist as easily as a socialist, and even though a few things Jesus said smack of downright communism, during the Cold War good American capitalists went on reading the Sermon on the Mount without taking much notice.”

— Yuval Noah Harari

“Humans can try to upgrade themselves to gods in these three ways”By Yuval Noah Harari

AGAIN -HE WHO SITS IN THEEHAVENS WILL LAUGH AND HAVE THEM IN DERISION

Hebrews 12

Hear the Heavenly Voice

25 See that you do not refuse Him who speaks. For if they did not escape who refused Him who spoke on earth, much more shall we not escape if we turn away from Him who speaks from heaven, 26 whose voice then shook the earth; but now He has promised, saying, “Yet once more I shake not only the earth, but also heaven.” 27 Now this, “Yet once more,” indicates the removal of those things that are being shaken, as of things that are made, that the things which cannot be shaken may remain.

28 Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom which cannot be shaken, let us have grace, by which we  may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear. 29 For our God is a consuming fire.”

BIO LOGOS “GAIN OF FUNCTION” FUNDER FRANCIS COLLINS TAKES AIM AT CHRISTIAN EDUCATION

DESPITE HIS NASTY EMAILS, BURNER PHONES AND PARTNERSHIP WITH WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM AND THE PANDEMIC INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX-FRANCIS COLLINS STILL WANTS TO INVADE CHRISTIAN ED WITH HIS THEISTIC EVOLUTION.

Rev Thomas Littleton

April 13 2022

Francis Collins should be a man without an audience after his secret interactions with Anthony Fauci, burner phones, exposed role among evangelical manipulation and propaganda over the Pandemic, response, and vax .But he seems to be unphased by the light and scrutiny he and his organizations have come under since 2020. Today his BioLogos and its massive annual budget are going beyond the apologetics and theological realm via publishing , “conversations “and conferences and moving forward with the 2017 plan to invade CHRISTIAN EDUCATION seeking to “merge faith and science”.

What this REALLY MEANS is that in Faith in God and His Holy Word must needs take a back seat to any presumed science that looks to be in opposition to it. “Informed Conversations ” in the form of classic Dialectical consensus reaching can alter both the biblical worldview and the view of the bible in a generation under it’s esteemed influence. These “conversations” are moderated and funded across interfaith lines to the tune of $150 million dollars annually -including about one half of BioLogos annual $9 million budget.

Francis Collins with BioLogos crew holding the “&” sign as the central figure in efforts to wed evolution “science ” and Christian Faith through the interfaith funding of templeton foundation.

“At Faith & Science 2022, you’ll explore the surprising links between theology, science and art; hear what disability and racial diversity tell us about being human; learn how Christians can make a difference in the climate crisis; rediscover why we’re wired for community; and take stock of the lessons we must learn from the global pandemic if we are to thrive in the years to come.”

WHAT IS THEISTIC EVOLUTION?

Theistic Evolution supports the idea that the assumed conflict between religious faith and scientific evolutionary theory does not really exist. It supporters are prepared to promote endless “conversations” in the interest of merging faith and “science” in venues from Christian Universities -to churches- to apologetics conferences and now coming to K-12 classroom via BioLogos Christian education curriculum.

According to Wiki overview -“Theistic evolution, also known as theistic evolutionism or God-guided evolution, is a general term comprising views that regard religious teachings about God as compatible with modern scientific understanding about biological evolution. Theistic evolution is not in itself a scientific theory, but a range of views about how the science of general evolution relates to religious beliefs in contrast to special creation views. Theistic evolutionists accept the scientific consensus on the age of the Earth, the age of the universe, the Big Bang, the origin of the Solar System, the origin of life, and evolution.”

BIOLOGOS ASSERTIONS

“Many independent measurements have established that the Earth and the universe are billions of years old.”

ON FRANCIS COLLINS ROLE BIOLOGOS SAYS

“He speaks both languages, understands both cultures, and feels acutely the rift between them. He must know that his insistence on bringing them together could make him less welcome in either. But, for Collins, this pursuit is not an abstract ideal or a political goal. It is, in some sense, a higher calling. For our nation and our species, the future depends on its success.”

BIOLOGOS AND THE BIBLE

“Today’s podcast episode is a re-run of one of our more popular episodes, with one of the BibleProject founders, Tim Mackie!”

“Tim discusses the history of the Bible, explores the context in which it was written, and demonstrates what it looks like to bring the Bible into relevance for the people of today.”

(NOTE -Of course this means starting with Genesis 1-11 BIOLOGS MUST unhinge Christians from taking the creation time line of the bible literally and submitting their faith to the whims of modern science often aimed at undermining it. )

BIOLOGOS WORKING WITH TIME KELLER AND THE GOSPEL COALITION TO SPREAD THE THEISTIC EVOLUTIONARY LOVE AROUND THE GLOBE.

“Ana Avila is the Senior Editor for Coalición por el Evangelio, the Spanish speaking sister of The Gospel Coalition. She shares her journey into writing at the intersection of faith and science.”

COLLINS AND BIOLOGS 2020 BUDGET FOCUSED ON THE PANDEMIC AND NOW PUSHES SAFTY OF VAX FOR CHILDREN.

“An immunologist and a pediatrician share some of the reasons they chose to vaccinate their kids and answer common questions about the COVID vaccine.”

BIOLOGOS RECENT POST ON THEIR NEXT STEPS TO TARGET CHRISTIAN EDUCATION

“Relax and Learn the Science”

“Teachers who are intentional about presenting all the facts, making space for processing them, and inviting students to perceive science as a legitimate Christian vocation are taking the steps needed to help students let go of their fears.”

“Integrate author Christy Hemphill writes over on the CACE blog about equipping teachers when teaching science.”

BIOLOGOS INTEGRATE CURRICULUM

“About Integrate”

Bring Christ-centered faith, rigorous science, and gracious dialogue to your students with Integrate, a flexible faith and science curriculum. Explore theological and ethical questions raised by modern science, while cultivating virtues such as humility, wisdom, and wonder.”

“Integrate is designed for home educators and teachers at private Christian schools (grades 6–12). It can also be used by Christian public school families at home.”

“After years of getting requests for curricula, BioLogos began developing Integrate in 2017. Focus groups with science educators revealed they weren’t looking for a full new curriculum, but rather quality, vetted resources to help students make deeper connections between their Christian faith and the science they were learning. Integrate has been designed to accomplish that goal.”

“The series of unit studies that comprise Integrate is organized around the main topics covered in a biology course and provides structured activities for a traditional classroom or homeschool use. Many of the units can be used in other science or Bible courses as well. The modular design gives you flexibility to pick and choose the activities that best suit your goals, time constraints, and students’ interests.”

This unit explores various sources of genetic diversity among humans and invites students to contemplate the dignity and worth of all human life. After completing Unit 5: Genetic Diversity and Human Dignity, you can continue with other units (biologos.link/units-list) that pair well with your science or Bible course (biologos.link/
course-pairing). The modular design gives you flexibility to pick and choose the activities that best suit your goals, time constraints, and students’ interests.”

NO INDOCTRINATION JUST DIALOG WITH AN AGENDA ?

“Pedagogy of Hospitality”
“Integrate presumes acceptance of, or directly teaches, the scientific consensus on some matters of controversy within the Christian community: namely, modern cosmology, the age of the earth, evolution, and anthropogenic climate change. At the same time, we as authors recognize that in any community of Christians, there is likely a diversity of viewpoints. Our goal is education, not indoctrination. As such, we include opportunities to explore various Christian perspectives within the Integrate units. Reflection assignments and discussion questions are intentionally open-ended, without an expectation that students adopt any one “correct” perspective. We also believe practicing gracious dialogue is more important than winning an argument. For this reason the curriculum includes opportunities for respectful engagement with others who think differently. For tips on how to create a welcoming environment in your community, see biology professor Kerry Fulcher’s article A Pedagogy of
Hospitality (biologos.link/hospitality).”

BIOLOGOS HISTORY

Our History

“BioLogos was founded by one of the top biologists in the world, Francis Collins. He led the Human Genome Project and now directs the National Institutes of Health. In 2006, he wrote the best-selling book The Language of God in which he tells his journey from atheism to Christian belief, showing that science is not in conflict with the Bible, but actually enhances faith. The outpouring of response to the book showed the need for virtual and actual meeting places to ask questions, discuss issues, and learn from the top Christian minds in the sciences and theology.”

“VALUES ” BUT NOTE THE CENTRAL FOCUS ON GRACIOUS DIALOG I.E. CONSENSUS BUILDING

Core Values

Christ-centered Faith — We embrace the historical Christian faith, upholding the authority and inspiration of the Bible.

Rigorous Science — We affirm the established findings of modern science, celebrating the wonders of God’s creation.

Gracious Dialogue — We strive for humble and thoughtful dialogue with those who hold other views, speaking the truth in love.”

“BioLogos explores God’s Word and God’s World to inspire authentic faith for today.

Our vision is faith and science working hand in hand.”

(IF THIS WERE TRUE THEN HOW CAN

BIOLOGOS FUNDING– A SAMPLING

TEMPLETON FOUNDATION 2012

” John Templeton Foundation Grant: Celebrating the Harmony between Mainstream Science and the Christian Church 2012-2015: $1,928,863 This grant supports the development of the BioLogos website, an annual conference for evangelical thought leaders, and the infrastructure needed for the development of other BioLogos programs. Since it is a renewal to a previous grant, it covers only half the expenses of these programs and we must raise funds from non-Templeton sources to match the grant.  “

BIOLOGOS ANNUAL REPORT BY 2013 WERE MAKING “PASS- THROUGH” GRANTS

“In 2012 BioLogos established a new competitive grants program called Evolution and Christian Faith. With funding from the John Templeton Foundation, more than $3.6 million in grants was awarded to over three dozen individuals”

2013 A $200,000 GRANT JUST TO TARGET SOUTHERN BAPTIST WITH A BIOLOGOS PROJECT

”  John Templeton Foundation Grant: Building Bridges among Evangelicals on Origins 2012-2015: $190,797 This grant supports collaborative meetings between BioLogos leaders and leaders of two influential evangelical groups — Reasons To Believe and a select group of Southern Baptist theologians — to produce a book, web resources, one public conference and several smaller joint speaking events  “

2018 SURPLUS

“At the end of 2018, BioLogos had a net asset balance of $2.6M. Of this amount, $830k is
from multi-year grants and designated for programs in future years. Cash reserves
continue to be strong, allowing for stability through uncertain economic conditions in the coming year.”

2020 AND THE PANDEMIC

“Through all of our online
efforts, BioLogos addresses
issues at the intersection of
science and Christian faith,
like evolution, creation
care, bioethics, and human
identity. In 2020, this
naturally included key
pieces around the
Christian response to
COVID-19.”

BIOLOGOS JOINED IN THE INFORMATION WARS AND OPPOSING NARRATIVE OPPOSITION…ENDING THE YEAR WITH A SURPLUS

“In August of 2020, and in response to
polarization and rampant
misinformation around COVID-19,
BioLogos announced “A Christian
Statement on Science for Pandemic
Times.” We invited dozens of Christian
leaders to publicly show the biblical
basis and broad Christian support for
taking the scientific findings about
COVID-19 seriously.
Those who signed and shared included
author Philip Yancey, theologian N.T.
Wright, and Walter Kim, the President of
the National Association of Evangelicals,
among many other key figures.
Overall, more than 8,000 signed the
statement, which earned considerable
media attention.”

BIO-BOAST THE NUMBERS

“BioLogos strives to connect its website readers with the ever-growing list of resources on its site in a way that is clear and enjoyable. The John Templeton Foundation provides half the funds to support the ongoing maintenance and growing content on the website; the remaining funds come from individual donations via our general fund. When the BioLogos website launched in April of 2009 we had a readership of just 10,000 people. By the end of 2013, we had over 60,000 unique visitors each month and a total of 440,000 unique visitors for the whole year. People are learning about evolution and how it relates to biblical findings and Christian faith. Our Facebook page has over 18,000 likes and our Twitter feed is up to nearly 4,500 followers. Sharing over 1,400 blog entries, videos, and personal journeys from scientists, students, teachers, and scholars, our website is considered a reliable source to discover God’s revelation of himself through the Word and through his created order. Some of our top blog posts from 2013 include:”

K-12 Educators Resource Center

“If you are looking for educational resources that present a fruitful dialogue between science and the Bible, here are some resources worth exploring. Some of those featured are from BioLogos, some from like-minded organizations, and others from places around the web. We periodically update this page, so check back regularly to see what’s new!”

CHRISTIAN HOMESCHOOL MARKET IS ALSO IN BIOLOGOS SITES.

 “Currently, Christian school teachers and homeschool parents must choose between Christian-published curricula, which are often weak on science, and secular-published curricula. In response, we are developing a flexible, online Christian worldview supplement that presents a positive science-faith paradigm for students. INTEGRATE is designed to be used alongside any standard high school biology curriculum. By emphasizing Christian virtues such as wonder, humility, and wisdom, and by addressing common questions related to evolution, creation care, and bioethics, INTEGRATE helps young people develop a deeper love and stronger understanding of God’s world.  “

TEMPLETON’S BROADER WORK

$150 MILLION ANNUALLY -INTERFAITH AND MULTIFAITH “CONVERSATIONS”

“As President of the John Templeton Foundation, I am often asked to explain what we do and why it’s important. Answering this question isn’t always simple: the John Templeton Foundation gives away roughly $150 million a year in funding to support research and catalyze conversations around the world. These projects cross discplines—from astrophysics, evolutionary biology, and genetics, to philosophy, psychology, and economics. We fund Tibetan Buddhist monks studying science and Harvard astronomers uncovering the most mysterious objects in the universe. Our work seems to elude easy description.”

“But underlying everything the John Templeton Foundation does, there is a far-reaching vision: to inspire awe and wonder and help humanity to understand what it means to live a life full of purpose and meaning.”

“It is a distinctive vision. We are proud of it and believe it has value for the world. Where did it come from? To trace that story to its roots, we need to go back over a hundred years to a small town in Tennessee where the creator of this vision, my grandfather, Sir John Templeton, was born.”

EVOLUTION AND “DARWINS BULLDOG” –UNESCO AND THE HUXLEYS

UNESCO was founded by Julian Huxley who boasted that it would use the dialectic to merge opposites like

Huxley observed, “The task before UNESCO…is to help the emergence of a single world culture with its own philosophy and background of ideas and with its own broad purpose.” Huxley spoke of two opposing worldviews — one founded on supernatural creation and the other on atheist evolutionism — confronting each other from the West and the East. In describing them he said, “You may categorize the two philosophies as…individualism versus collectivism or as the American versus the Russian…or as capitalism versus communism, or as Christianity versus Marxism. Can these opposites be reconciled, this antithesis be resolved in a higher synthesis? I believe…this can happen…through the inexorable dialectic of evolution.”

HUXLEYS GRANDFATHER AND DARWIN-THE KEY TO UNDERMINING THE BIBLE

FROM PBS BIO

“Just as the writer of a song may not be its best performer, Charles Darwin’s genius lay more in developing the theory of natural selection than in forcefully promoting it in the world. For that, there was Thomas Henry Huxley, such an aggressive defender of evolution that he was known as “Darwin’s bulldog.”

“The early life of Huxley (1825-1895) was much different from the privileged existence of Darwin. He was one of eight children, growing up outside of London without much money. He left school early, trained to be a doctor, and educated himself in science, history, and philosophy, becoming one of the most broadly informed and influential figures in Victorian science.”

“Like Darwin, Huxley studied natural history while traveling on a naval ship. Initially, Huxley did not accept evolution at all. But Darwin converted him with the On the Origin of Species, and Huxley mused afterwards, “How extremely stupid not to have thought of that!”

“Although he was much more than a defender of Darwin — he led the movement toward the professionalization of science, for example — Huxley is best known for his public exchange in 1860 with Bishop Samuel Wilberforce. The bishop, a clever, witty debater, opened himself to attack by making a gentle joke about Huxley’s ancestry. Huxley, furious, replied famously to the effect that he would rather be descended from an ape than a bishop.”

“Huxley, the first of a family of important scientists, is also known for coining the term “agnostic” to distinguish skeptics like himself from atheists, who denied the existence of a god. To Huxley, agnosticism was an acceptance of the idea that the human mind could not go beyond certain limits, namely the ability to analyze actual experience.”

ASSOCIATION OF CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS INTERNATIONAL MINDSHIFT AND BIOLOGS

ACSI is possibly the most influential organization in CHRISTIAN EDUCATION with over 25,000 affiliated schools . By Spring 2021 ACSI announced its full embrace of Diversity Equity and Inclusion and Social Justice with a partnership with CRT and Black Liberation Theology advocate Walter Strickland and UnifyEd. In the same year ACSI used radical inclusion LGBTQ actiivst and their organizations related tot eh divisive “Revoice ” LGBTQ Thirving movement among conservative evangelical denominations the PCA and the Southern Baptist to promote what ACSI asserted to be “scripturally rooted conversations on homosexuality”. After these documents were exposed by this writer and Evangelical media outlet WVW/ WorldView Weekend TV and Radio -ACSI took down the pdf of those resources.

BUT ACSI CONTINUES IT’S PURSUIT OR “SOCIAL JUSTICE” AND DE&I WITH A MOVEMENT TO “START A REVOLUTION IN CHRISTIAN EDUCATION ” CALLED “MINDSHIFT” ALONG WITH OTHER LEADING ORGANIZATIONS IN THE CHRISTIAN EDUCATION REALM.

ACSI AND BIOLOGOS PARTNERING FOR THE FUTURE OF CHRISTIAN ED

“The Challenge of Christian Schooling in a Secular Age.”

“In 2006, the ACSI Education Foundation launched its
mission to secure, manage, and distribute private
support to promote the strategic growth, influence,
and effectiveness of Christian schooling worldwide. At
the request of ACSI’s senior leadership, the Foundation’s
board unanimously agreed to take on the daunting task
of providing visionary, innovative, research-informed
leadership for global Christian schools and educators.”

The First Step
“In February 2015, the Foundation took a strategic first step
by convening a carefully selected group of experts, not
affiliated with ACSI, who care and think deeply about the
education of the next generation. Their task was to assist
in identifying the problems facing the Christian schooling
movement in general and ACSI in particular. We wanted
perspective and candid feedback from scholars, cultural
critics, and Christian school leaders who are thoughtfully
engaged with the challenge of living faithfully in a highly
secularized culture”

“In addition to engaging in full-group discussions, the
following participants presented “TED-style talks” to
their colleagues.
• Deborah Haarsma, PhD, president of The BioLogos
Foundation, shared personal reflection on Christian
education and the sciences.
• Robin Hom, JD, superintendent of California
Crosspoint High School (formerly Chinese Christian
High School), presented a talk on affordability and
accessibility to Christian schooling.
• David Kinnaman, president of the Barna Group,
discussed the implication to Christian schooling of the
research that informed his book You Lost Me”

• David Sikkink, PhD, associate professor at University
of Notre Dame and director of the Cardus Religious
Schools Initiative, interpreted Cardus research findings regarding specific facets of Christian schooling.
ACSI’s senior executive leadership joined in engaging
these presenters through questioning and brainstorming. The discussions and presentations were meant to
provoke rigorous dialogue on educating the next generation to think and act with the mind of Christ.”

ACSI AND MINDSHIFT DE&I PRINCIPLE #6

Principle #6

Diversity, Inclusion, and Justice.

(FROM ACSI LABORS WITH MINDSHIFT.SCHOOL )

“Revelation 7:9 makes it clear that heaven will be populated by all people groups—and thus so should our Christian schools. We also take seriously the biblical mandates to love our neighbors as ourselves (Mark 12:31), to live humbly and harmoniously with those who differ from us (Romans 12:16), and to do justice and love mercy (Micah 6:8). The implications of these scriptures for how we educate students and create communities are profound—and if we are to grasp and actuate them, we need to learn from and with each other. For both educators and students, this requires honest dialogue, time and space, humble hearts and minds, and a commitment to trust-building.”

CASE /ACSI MINDSHIFT LEADER DAN BEERENS AND BIOLOGOS

“Reconciling Faith and Science”

Dan Beerens September 21, 2016

“Christian teachers are called to be reconcilers.  As ambassadors of Christ, they are given this ministry of reconciliation: pointing students to living in harmony with God, neighbor, creation, and self. …..Yet one area of reconciliation that some Christian teachers and churches quietly avoid addressing is the reconciliation of faith and science. This reconciliation gap has been cited as one of the reasons that students “lose faith” in the transition between high school and college. As educators and reconcilers, we are called to imitate Christ, in whom all things cohere and whose perfect love casts out fear. This includes discussing science and faith with students. We are called to continue to show students how the revelation of God’s truth, Christ’s design in creation is an ongoing process of discovery as human beings.”

CONCLUSION

Between the full on embrace of Critical Theories- the tools of the trade Cultural Marxist agents of change, theistic evolution. intersectionality , creating and redeeming culture, creating community, appeasing activism, allowing for the cascade of unbiblical self identifications flooding the church via the LGBTQAI movement , and the errors of Neo-Calvinism and antinomianism -the one thing that Christian education is NO LONGER is “CHRISTIAN” . iT’S PRETTY MUCH IMPOSSIBLE to honestly claim that it is and be credible among people who know their God and read their BIBLE.

JOHN 8

31 Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed. 32 And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free…

( NOT ALL THOSE WHO CLAIM BELIEVERS HERITAGE REMAIN FAITHFUL FOLLOWERS ONCE THEY DENY THE LORD FOR WHO HE REALLY IS OR DISPUTE HIS WORD AS JESUS WARNED HIS DETRACTORS IN JOHN 8)

37 “I know that you are Abraham’s descendants, but you seek to kill Me, because My word has no place in you. 38 I speak what I have seen with My Father, and you do what you have [n]seen with your father.”

39 They answered and said to Him, “Abraham is our father.”

Jesus said to them, “If you were Abraham’s children, you would do the works of Abraham. 40 But now you seek to kill Me, a Man who has told you the truth which I heard from God. Abraham did not do this. 41 You do the deeds of your father.”

Then they said to Him, “We were not born of fornication; we have one Father—God.”

42 Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me. 43 Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word. 44 You are of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it. 45 But because I tell the truth, you do not believe Me. 46 Which of you convicts Me of sin? And if I tell the truth, why do you not believe Me? 47 He who is of God hears God’s words; therefore you do not hear, because you are not of God.”

Before Abraham Was, I AM

48 Then the Jews answered and said to Him, “Do we not say rightly that You are a Samaritan and have a demon?”

49 Jesus answered, “I do not have a demon; but I honor My Father, and you dishonor Me. 50 And I do not seek My own glory; there is One who seeks and judges. 51 Most assuredly, I say to you, if anyone keeps My word he shall never see death.”

52 Then the Jews said to Him, “Now we know that You have a demon! Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and You say, ‘If anyone keeps My word he shall never taste death.’ 53 Are You greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? And the prophets are dead. Who do You make Yourself out to be?”

54 Jesus answered, “If I honor Myself, My honor is nothing. It is My Father who honors Me, of whom you say that He is [o]your God. 55 Yet you have not known Him, but I know Him. And if I say, ‘I do not know Him,’ I shall be a liar like you; but I do know Him and keep His word. 56 Your father Abraham rejoiced to see My day, and he saw it and was glad.”

57 Then the Jews said to Him, “You are not yet fifty years old, and have You seen Abraham?”

58 Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”

59 Then they took up stones to throw at Him; but Jesus hid Himself and went out of the temple, going[p] through the midst of them, and so passed by.
