GLOBALIST FALSE PROPHETS :THE REAL DANGER AHEAD.

THE REAL THREAT TO THE WORLD IS GLOBALIST FALSE CHRISTIANITY – NOT CORONA PANDEMIC OR GLOBALIST EXPLOITATION OF IT.
Rev Thomas Littleton                                                                                                3-3–2020
These are unprecedented and disturbing times as the world watches and waits for life to return to normal. There is a strange feeling to day to day life as we see the world economy shut down and simple activities like dining out or normally winding down Spring sessions of school of college cease as life itself is controlled by a virus or those who say they are working to control it’s spread.There is cause for concern ,but as always, there is also reason to suspect the severity of the response when it includes a massive spending bill including billions for “Community Development”, Immigrant Care and Immigration, AIDS Housing and even money for churches in the form of Small Business Administration loans with a ten year life span. Many took note wondering “Where did the talk of a Digital Currency come from” if Covid -19 is not being “politicized” and exploited?

GLOBALIST NEVER SLEEP 

There is a bigger unspoken concern now emerging that the forces which seek their own massive controls over human existence manifest a clear role in the planning and anticipation of the radical response to Covid -19. This past week the words of some journalist once lampooned as conspiracy theorist have come home to everyone with an unsettling reality as all our worlds grind to a halt.

THE GLOBAL PROPHETS BIRTHING A COMPLIANT CHURCH COMMUNITY

SPOOKY AS THESE REALITIES ARE-  CONSIDER THIS AND LET IT SINK IN.
THE GREATER DANGER TO THE WORLD IS A CHURCH WHICH HAS LOST THE GOSPEL BY ASSUMING A GLOBAL POLITICAL VISION REDEFINING IT’S TRUE ROLE TO NOW SIMPLY “SERVE THE GREATER GOOD”.
 The greater threat to American and global humanity is not just a virus or globalist exploitation of it BUT the sad and stark reality that MANY among our own Christian leadership are willing partners with global goals and globalism in general. YEARS have been invested by these Spiritual welterweights have long ago subscribed to the ideologies of the Global Goals of the most influential persons and organizations among global elites.
NOW they are working hard to align the church to the Global Goals and position the Body of Christ for service in the global vision in the name of the Gospel to which it is not only opposed to but historically proven to undermine.

THREE BIG FACES

NAMING NAMES
Tim Keller of the Presbyterian Church of America, Head of Redeemer City to City
Ed Stetzer of Wheaton College – head of the Billy Graham Center
Russell Moore Southern Baptist ERLC leader
These men and many others like them have aligned themselves and seek to align the church with lost and godless Global visionaries via their work with the Lausanne Movement who actually promotes a “Christian Prayer Guide  for the Sustainability Goals 2030 and with the Vatican who signed onto the Global Goals in 2015 .

In this episode, Dhati Lewis interviews Ed Stetzer, executive director of the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College and an expert consultant on crisis management, about the Church’s response to COVID-19, the different phases we’ll experience and the hopeful new normal after the crisis subsides.”

COVID -19 RESPONSE -THE PERFECT STORM

Churches and denominations are already drunken “under the influence” of massive amounts of funding for Faith Based Partnerships with  government and private foundation funding used as bait. The hook is about to be set AS soon the churches will become debtors as “Small Business” loans with a potential ten year shelf life will being result from their participation in the Covid-19  Stimulus dollars.

WHERE WILL THE CHURCH BE POST COVID-19 ?

ANSWER ..IN DEBT TO THE GOVERNMENT AND NO LONGER AN ETERNAL VOICE

Once the Church assumes it has no problem with Government Corona Virus Stimulus then everything is about to change.
TGC WRITER JOE CARTER 
“According to Joe Carter
TGC sent in Joe to talk  about what is in the Covid-19 Stimulus for churches this week”
SEE THE STIMULUS BILL HERE
Joe Carter IS A KEY PLAYER  in the Global Christianity cabal .He worked for many years with the Acton Institute as an editor AND WRITER. Acton Institute is the curriculum provider for the Evangelical seminaries who have developed programs to push the new social gospel with funding provided by private foundations.
Joe Carter of Acton quickly became entrenched at Keller’s TGC (The Gospel Coalition ) as an editor and serves as messaging coordinator for Russell Moore’s ERLC in the Southern Baptist Convention.
READ MORE on what has come to be known as “the Evangelical Deep State ” here:
A  current TGC article points pastors to the “benefits” awaiting churches during the Covid-19 pandemic in the Corona Stimulus. By Saturday March 28 Carter published TGC directives for Pastors/Churches to benefit from the Covid -19 Stimulus . He seemed well informed way ahead of the curve.

The FAQs: How the Stimulus Bill Affects Churches and Individuals

How does this legislation affect churches and small nonprofits?

“Churches, nonprofits, and Christian schools that are 501c3 (as well as most small businesses) with fewer than 500 employees are eligible for the $367 billion in Small Business Administration (SBA) loan guarantees and subsidies. This legislation increases the maximum 7(a) loan (i.e., the SBA loan program for providing financial assistance) amount to $10 million and would expand allowable uses for such loans to include employee salaries, insurance premiums, mortgage payments, payroll support (including paid sick or medical leave), and other debt obligations.”

“For almost all churches, the loan amount they can receive will be equal to their total average monthly payroll costs for the preceding 12 months (March 2019 to February 2020) multiplied by 2.5. For example, a church that has an average monthly payroll cost of $50,000 would be eligible for a loan of $125,000.”

“The loan requires a “good faith” certification that the funds will be used to support ongoing operations, retain workers, and/or maintain payroll or make mortgage, lease, and utility payments. The loan is forgivable (i.e., doesn’t require repayment) if the church employed the same number of people (or more) during the loan period as they did in 2019. Funds that are not forgiven have a loan maturity of 10 years, and loan payments under this program are not due for one year. No fees are included for the loan, and no collateral or personal guarantees will be required.”

“Since the loan comes from the SBA, most churches will want to contact the bank they currently use for information on how to apply for this program. This loan program ends on December 31, 2020.”

AGAIN NOTE

” Since the loan comes from the SBA, most churches will want to contact the bank they currently use for information on how to apply for this program.”

”  The loan requires a “good faith” certification that the funds will be used to support ongoing operations.”

” . Funds that are not forgiven have a loan maturity of 10 years, and loan payments under this program are not due for one year.”

CHURCHES ROLE IN THE COVID -19 RESPONSE VIA FAITH BASED PARTNERSHIPS

Southern Baptist NAMB and its Send Relief have been busy building a network of Relief Centers around the country including one in Puerto Rico to be to go to FBP coordinator in the FEMA “Community Development ” in the rebuild after Hurricane Maria.

Also in Clarkston GA NAMB has created a Send Relief Center to welcome Muslim Refugees into the US and connect them to government funding which will also undoubtedly  include the new hundreds of millions in the Covid -19 Stimulus .

These centers number seven so far but plans are to construct 25 in total by 2025 in the denominations full blown Faith Based Partnerships with the Government ,big business , and private globalist foundations.

LOCAL CHURCH RESPONSE-COVID-19 TESTING

Church of the Highlands in Alabama is now one of the largest multi-site churches in America . It has a long history with Faith based Partnerships and Community Service including a faith based medical clinic called Christi Health Center. Highlands used its Faith Based Clinic in partnership with a local lab to do some of the first mass Covid -19 Test in the nation . They then created a template for establishing  testing sights .

NOTE: 

The Highlands clinic did bill the insurance companies of those to whom they provided testing .Forms filled out by patients did include personal information on health insurance and a signature obligating payment .The cost was $150 dollars and in around a week of testing 2200 plus people went through Highland’s church parking lot for the test. Around 30 positive test were reported.

ALSO NOTE:

Highlands clinic operated with intense measures to protect volunteers and employees but DID NOT CHANGE GLOVES between patient contact via swabbing stations and DID NOT EVEN PROVIDE RESTROOM ACCESS  to those sick and showing signs of infection / patients who sat in line from 6:30 a.m to mid day for testing.

THIS IS THE BRAVE NEW WORLD OF CHURCH IN AMERICA AND THE WORLD.

At the time when the church should be about the business of the Kingdom , preaching the everlasting Gospel committed and entrusted to it- the church is instead in bed with funding from GLOBALIST government and private foundations, big business and soon to be debtors to the the federal governments Small Business Administration for the next decade. We are following a GAGGLE  OF FALSE PROPHET (PROFITS)  who has lead the institutional church (and us with it if we do not awaken ) to the brink of destruction , or worse , to becoming the HARLOT CHURCH  warned about in Revelation.

Jesus somber warnings in the prophets context of –

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.”

TRUE CHRISTIANS NEED TO SEPARATE THEMSELVES FROM THESE GLOBAL FALSE PROPHETS WHO ARE SELLING OUR BIBLICAL HERITAGE AND CALLING FOR A BOWL OF GLOBALIST POTTAGE AND BIRTHING THE HARLOT CHURCH.

WE CANNOT SERVE GOD AND GLOBAL GOALS OF GODLESS MEN.

 

 

 

ED STETZER USES WHEATON BILLY GRAHAM CHAIR/CENTER TO PUSH OBAMA FOUNDATION POLITICS 2020

COMING OUT OF THE CLOSET FOR ED STETZER /SBC’s TRUE POLITICAL SELF IDENTITY?
Rev Thomas Littleton                                                                                                  3/17/2020
You may not know who Ed Stetzer is but his influence does impact you and your church. He has been VERY influential in the Southern Baptist Convention and in the evangelical church as a whole through his position at Lifeway Research and as his “Exchange” section in Christianity Today. If it were not for Leadership Network no one would likely have ever heard of Stetzer. But this can also be said of MANY of his friends like Rick Warren, Tim Keller, and a host of  others ranging from emergent heretics to neo- reformed dominion theology adherents. Stetzer is also a part of the Lausanne Movement which in 2010 began to go public with its latest version of global ecumenical Christian re-branding .
Stetzer has left  his finger prints everywhere in Evangelicalism including on the Southern Baptist Seminaries and North American Missions Board . He influenced church planting through his work with Tim Keller, The Gospel Coalition.  Stetzer, or the powers behind him, have redefined missions via a focus on urban church planting as a “missions strategy”. This was part of the “Mission Shift ” Movement with emergent leaders like Brian McLaren. Today Stetzer has moved on from Lifeway to take the Billy Graham Chair at Wheaton and recently did a stint as the interim pastor of the famed Moody Bible Church.

THE BIG REVEAL

Stetzer is now contributing / HOSTING a new POLITICAL ENGAGEMENT narrative from the Obama Foundation Faith Ambassador and Trinity Forum for 2020 election cycle.

STETZER AND THE COMING SBC RESOLUTIONS BATTLE

Stetzer surfaced in the midst of the recent controversies in the SBC as the head of the 2020 “Resolutions Committee” .Controversy continues after the 2019 RC produced a Resolution approving of Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality as”useful analytical tools with the Gospel.” The original Resolution submitted to the Committee was a condemnation of the Cultural Marxist tools. Stetzer will now Chair the Committee reviewing complaints and efforts to overturn “Resolution 9”.

PRO MUSLIM EVENTS AT WHEATON /GRAHAM CENTER

In recent months the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton has hosted some very disturbing events like the November 1st Neighborly Faith -Christian Muslim dialog campus movement event to “bring Christians and Muslims together ” helping young Christians overcome their “Islamaphobia”.
THE NOVEMBER 2019 WHEATON NEIGHBORLY FAITH EVENT
The  ACTUAL broader focus of the Neighborly Faith events and others like it is to redefine Religious Liberty through protecting the rights of Muslims and LGBTQ and subject the Constitutional rights written for American’s to these forces both antithetical to and intolerant of Christianity and the Constitution .
NOTE- SBC President (and close Stetzer pal) J D Greear made headlines last week after appearing at a more recent Neighborly Faith event in NC on stage with an Imam who is an outspoken hater of Israel.
Save that for another time.

GRAHAM CENTER AND OBAMA AMBASSADOR

THE NEW EVENT IS FOCUSED ON THE 2020 ELECTION, OF “CHRISTIAN WITNESS IN A PLURALISTIC SOCIETY “.
IT IS PART OF THE PROMOTION OF TRINITY FORUM FELLOW AND LONG TIME OBAMA OPERATIVE MICHAEL WEAR.
Wear is now the Obama Foundation’s Ambassador the America’s Believers and THE MOVEMENT  behind this event hosted by Stetzer / Graham Center was paid for by the billionaire founder of Ebay whose activism in journalism and political movements is focused largely on pro Muslim causes.

Politics, Polarization, and our Christian Witness Webinar

Michael Wear & Dr. Amy Black discuss principles for leading your people through the 2020 political season

About this Event

“Only a few months into another presidential election year and it feels like the stakes only continue to increase. Whether it’s online through social media or across the dinner table with family and friends, politics inevitably seep into every conversation. In such a climate there is the temptation for Christians to either try to check out completely or to jump into the fray with all the intensity they can muster. The result is that our witness can suffer as we become more concerned with party allegiance than Kingdom advancement.”

“Yet while even as politics is seemingly everywhere, Christians can struggle to understand when and how to engage. Moreover, the increasing spirit of polarization is a powerful temptation to begin to frame the way we see and treat others in us-them terms. For pastors and ministry leaders, this season comes with a gauntlet of obstacles. How do you lead an organization in the age of such politicization and polarization? Do you dare touch the issue of politics and risk alienating your people? If so, how can you lead your people to unity?”

“In this webinar, Dr. Amy Black, Professor of Political Science at Wheaton College, and Michael Wear, founder of Public Square Strategies, will help us think through the intersection of faith and politics. Drawing on their recent report for The Trinity Forum, Christianity, Pluralism and Public Life in the United States: insights from Christian Leaders, Black and Wear will explore insights gleaned from Christian leaders in how Christians can engage on politics. In doing so, this webinar aims to equip pastors and ministry leaders for the challenges of the upcoming political season. This webinar is sponsored by the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College and the Wheaton Center for Faith, Politics, and Economics”

Wear is also part of the leadership of The & Campaign which is working to alter Christian Voting patterns and “shake up the 2020 election” with the backing of pro LGBTQ billionaire  Paul Singer. Singers influence in the GOP/ Romney 2012 arena virtually ended Republican opposition to “Gay Marriage “. Today Singers American Unity Fund is THE go to partner in the “Alliance for Lasting Liberty ” and the Mormon inspired “Fairness for All LGBTQ/ Religious Liberty “compromise” .

The & Campaign is also now deeply embedded in the Southern Baptist NAMB /Send Network Church Planting arm bringing it’s Obama Foundation political expert with it.The same is true with the coming Wheaton /Billy Graham Center event with none other than Obama Faith Ambassador Michael Wear.

CONCLUSION

Six Years ago it was difficult to prove what some had begun to suspect …that money from the far left and the POLITICAL influences that come with it, had made their way DEEP INSIDE  the conservative Christian world. NOW there is no denying it.Those complicit with it are no longer  even trying to hide it. Will Christians succumb to SIRENS SONG of the Obama Foundation, the Democratic Party, and globalist billionaire activist? Time will but it is not looking good for kool-aide drinkers and Christian media junkies.

INROADS TO DISMANTLE CHRISTIAN RIGHT: PRO -ISLAMIC FUNDING/OBAMA FOUNDATION/ NCF -CHRISTIAN CHARITY.

ONE OF LARGEST CHRISTIAN FUNDING SOURCES JOINS FORCES WITH OBAMA FOUNDATION AMBASSADOR AND PRO-ISLAM FOUNDATION, TO LURE BIBLICAL CONSERVATIVES INTO THIRD WAY ” PRINCIPLED PLURALISM”.

Rev Thomas Littleton                                                                                                  3/8/2020

A new “Report” called “Christianity, Pluralism, and Public Life in America: Insights from Christian Leader” was introduced by The Trinity Forum on February 25th 2020. The report authored by The Obama Foundation’s Michael Wear and Wheaton political science professor Amy Black  is the product of funding from the founder of Ebay and carries the endorsement of ONE OF THE LARGEST PRIVATE SOURCES OF FUNDING flooding into churches and ministries across the nation. National Christian Foundation (NFC) is a Georgia based organization with state and regional chapters around the country. NCF has some limited historic involvement with conservative Christian political organizations but has never openly allied with such progressive partners as Wear and the backers of his report

Funding for the Obama operative Wear’s “REPORT” comes from the Democracy Fund of Ebay founder turned political donor Pierre Omidyar who has some disturbing history with investments and pro Islamic policies . (More on Democracy Fund recipients later)

https://www.mintpressnews.com/pierre-omidyar-a-billionaire-prone-to-reclusiveness-and-his-trove-of-state-surveillance-secrets/255439/

NATIONAL CHRISTIAN FOUNDATION GOING POLITICAL ?

NFC was historically a minor player in Christian focused philanthropy having given away around one billion dollars over its 24 year history. HOWEVER that changed when the Obama administration launched reforms for Faith Based Partnerships (FBP) where Michael Wear, as Obama’s Faith Ambassador, was charged with recruiting participation by evangelicals. Conservatives generally refused Government entanglements and the  political strings attached to them. Many Christian leaders appear to have found the Obama era tax dollar tsunami of funding too much to resist.

In concert with FBP funding, beginning around 2010 NCF funding into select ministries and churches swelled from 1 billion in 24 years to over a billion dollars PER YEAR. This happened under the leadership of people from organizations like Leadership Network and Half Time who had worked with the very same forces who had shaped the FBP during the Clinton era Welfare Reforms.

NCF continues to infuse billions into churches and ministries and FOR THE FIRST TIME IN IT’S HISTORY is openly endorsing a document focused on public life, in particular politics and shockingly is doing so by ENDORSING THE OBAMA FOUNDATION’S Michael Wear and his “Third Way” narrative on Pluralistic Society straight out of the far left. Multiple indications exist here that the FBP and NCF funding groundswell were previously linked and aimed toward the present political trajectory. Michael Wear might be the person to confirm or deny that.

If the movement was not coordinated in 2010 -it certainly is converging today.

VOICE OF THE CHRISTIAN RIGHT IS NOW COMING FROM THE LEFT.

Some of the same groups and leaders that 5 years ago were demeaning the political engagement of Christian Conservatives are now openly attempting to lure them into progressive political postures of Third Way compromise in the name of being “mature believers” and recognition of the “Value of Pluralism ” .When you hear the word’s “pluralism” or principled pluralism , civil engagement , common ground for the common good, Social and Economic Justice and working together to ensure “human flourishing” ,this ideology, for Biblical Conservatives, is the language of political seduction. Today it is everywhere in Christian media ,on seminary campuses, campus ministries, conferences and now openly in THIS revealing new partnership from the Trinity Forum. Now a third way coalition is being sought by carefully crafted rhetoric and power players from the left including the Obama Foundation.

THE REPORT AND ITS PURPOSE

Michael Wears website and Trinity Forum:

“I am excited to share with you Christianity, Pluralism and Public Life in the United States: Insights from Christian Leaders, a new report I co-authored with Wheaton College professor Amy Black, in partnership with The Trinity Forum and with the generous support of the Democracy Fund. The report will be released publicly at an event hosted by The Trinity Forum today at the National Press Club. The report is available online at www.ttf.org/reports.”  Michael Wear
“The Trinity Forum will be releasing its first ever research report on the contributions Christianity makes to politics in our pluralistic society.”
“The Trinity Forum is thrilled to announce an event highlighting the work of its first ever research report on the contributions Christianity makes in a pluralistic society. During this Evening Conversation report authors Michael Wear and Amy Black will discuss the importance of these findings both for this critical election year and beyond.”
NOTE the election focus “As we prepare for the election primaries for the 2020 presidential election, it is evident that much of the rhetoric from candidates, pundits, and leaders often under-appreciates or misunderstands the way Christianity influences the lives of many citizens and shapes civic character.”
“During this discussion, we will delve into both the real challenges and great opportunities present within Christian communities to make a more positive contribution to our civic life.”
When
February 24th, 2020 6:30 PM   through   8:30 PM
“Too many influential people believe and tell the story that either a diverse America is a threat to Christianity, or that Christianity is a threat to a diverse America.” Michael Wear

Evening Conversation | Christianity, Pluralism, & Public Life

“On February 24th, the Trinity Forum hosted an Evening Conversation with Michael Wear, Dr. Amy Black, Bishop Claude Alexander, and Rev. Canon Peg Chemberlin. They discussed the report co-authored by Michael Wear and Amy Black—Christianity, Pluralism, and Public Life in America: Insights from Christian Leaders.”

SOME HISTORY OF TRINITY FORUM AND SOROS /WEAR/ RUSSELL MOORE AND PRO ISLAM IMMIGRATION REFORM.

Michael Wear, Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist ERLC and Trinity have been working together in staging Trinity events in DC for years with the Soros funded National Immigration Forum and the Evangelical Immigration Table.

Conversation 2: A Civil Discourse

“The extreme polarization in our political parties has become a barrier to compromise and progress on policies that could improve our country and the American people. Our country’s biggest challenges have become political battlegrounds, no better example than the current immigration debate. These highly regarded and influential thought leaders joined us to discuss how we can bridge ideological differences and come together for meaningful change.”

WEAR / TRINITY DONOR 

DETAILS FROM THE FUNDING DONOR OF THE WEAR /TRINITY REPORT
Again Democracy Fund which is funding the new report is the” foundation created by ebay founder  Pierre Omidyar in 2011. It has been an independent private foundation since 2014. Its stated aim is to improve the democratic process in the United States so that it better benefits voters. Its activities include awarding grants to organizations it believes will further its goal.It also created the Voter Study Group, a collaboration of ideologically diverse scholars and analysts that surveyed 8,000 American voters on their political and social views.”

“Christianity, Pluralism, and Public Life in the United States: Insights from Christian Leaders The Trinity Forum is pleased to introduce a new report authored by Trinity Forum Senior Fellow Michael Wear and Wheaton College professor Amy Black, and made possible by a grant from the Democracy Fund. This report explores the consequences and implications of current cultural trends through the perspective of Christian church and ministry leaders in America. Its findings are based on in-depth interviews with more than 50 Christian leaders from a variety of denominations, traditions, locales, and political and theological perspectives. The findings show sharp political divides between groups, but also reveal a broad consensus around the value of pluralism in America, and the opportunities it brings for Christians to live out their faith, and contribute to the common good and formation of civic character. The resounding message of the report is that Christian thought and practice has much to offer America in this new pluralistic moment.”
ANOTHER PAST PARTNERSHIP OF TRINITY FORUM CALLED FOR “CIVILITY”
Trinity Forum and it’s long time leadership from OS Guinness partnered with Michael Wear, and Lausanne Movement leaders in 2015 in a similar group /document called the Civlitas Group.
“Civilitas is committed to building a network of partners with groups of shared conviction such as Veritas Forum, The Trinity Forum, James Davison Hunter and the Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture (University of Virginia), The Centre
for Ethics and Public Policy, The Center for Public Justice, The Brehm Center for Worship, Theology and the Arts, the Coalition of Christian Colleges and Universities, the Christian Community Development Association, private Christian foundations, national
student organizations, and institutions of higher learning.”
Michael Wear is involved in Civilitas  as is Trinity Forum AND leader emeritus  Os Guinness.
CIVILITAS CALLED FOR CHRISTIAN COMPROMISE ON LGBTQ IN JANUARY 2015 6 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE SCOTUS DECISION TO LEGALIZE GAY MARRIAGE.
CIVLITAS CALLED FOR MODELING CHICK FIL A OWNER DAN CATHY COMPROMISE WITH RADICAL GAY ACTIVIST FROM CAMPUS PRIDE .
Some of those involved in Civilitas  like Tim Keller and James Davison Hunter’s IASC
have openly boasted their Frankfurt School  influence.
Os Guinness WHO SIGNED CIVILITAS   is a leader of Trinity Forum and a thought leader in Tim Keller’s progressive organization The Gospel Coalition. Other Trinity leaders include Dallas Willard who provided early leadership in the development of the Oikonomia Network which oversees progressive Social Justice driven grants flooding into conservative seminaries across America.

TRINITY FORUM THOUGHT LEADER OS GUINNESS BETRAYAL ?

Many feel OS Guinness being part  L’Abrieg  and a disciple of Francis Schaeffer that Guiness has “lived off the legacy of Schaeffer and that now  Guinness  support of Social Justice  and Cultural Marxism ideologies is a betrayal of Francis Schaeffer legacy. ”

Again Guinness is a thought leader in Tim Keller’s organization The Gospel Coalition.

MORE ON TONY PERKINS /FAMILY RESEARCH COUNCIL PARTNERSHIPS

NOTE: Many Conservatives see Perkins and Family Research Council as a champion in the public forum but here he is collaborating with the Obama Foundation’s Ambassador Michael Wear. Why?

Worldview Weekend /Brannon Howse extensive research in 2012 reported in the book RELIGIOUS TROJAN HORSE  that Perkins has a long history of questionable partnerships.

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/17213487-religious-trojan-horse

(These include Perkins years of work with the heretical New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) documented below from pages 336,337, 339 , 353 of Religious Trojan Horse )

” These spiritual enterprises of the New Religious Right seem to be a regular occurrence. On January 3, 2012, for instance, the website of Cindy Jacobs reported that representatives of the Family Research Council would be joining Mike and Cindy Jacobs, along with NAR “prophet” Dutch Sheets, for “a night of intercessory prayer.”As far back as 2008, the president of the Family Research Council, Tony Perkins, wrote on the FRC blog about taking part in “prophet” Lou Engle’s rally on the mall in Washington, D.C. Perkins reported that “I was able to join Lou Engle for
about half of the 12–hour event.” (443)….”Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council also appeared on  (Rick ) Joyner’s Morning Star program. Ironically, Perkins once sat on the couch across from Joyner and declared, “We need men who rightly discern the times and can rightly divide the Word of God…”445 I believe if Tony were rightly dividing the Word of God, he would not be participating in the online TV program of Rick Joyner and
speaking at a function for Rick Joyner’s Oak Initiative.446 ”

NOTE- The outcome of the book on PHILANTHROPY where Buford boast his intentions is political and driven by Globalism and “Social Change”

“The book weaves together multi-sector ( i.e. FBP) , multidiscipline strategies, but—in large part—it is about the power of human connection, reinforced by personal stories of motivation and the human capacity for caring. Without ignoring the institutional and cultural obstacles, and the courage needed to face down the dark side of human behavior, Karoff shows how citizen engagement and open source solutions could tip the scale toward a better world.”

“How Christians can make positive contributions to public life”

Trinity Forum

March 5, 2020
“America is becoming more diverse – in terms of politics, race, and religion. The great melting pot that America is poses challenges for the church. But it also offers opportunities”(By Michael Wear and Amy E. Black)

“By 2045, the racial composition of America is predicted to look substantially different than it does now. It is estimated that the nation will become “minority white,” and Hispanics will account for about a quarter of the population.”

“The nation’s religious makeup is changing as well. More than three-quarters of senior citizens in America identify as Christians – but for those under 30, only about half do. The largest religious shift of the last decade has been described as the rise of the “nones” – those who claim no religious affiliation.”

“Meanwhile, a very different set of trends is at play in other corners of the world. In contrast to the U.S., the percentage of religious disaffiliated is declining. While there are fewer Christians who report that faith is important in their lives in the U.S. and Europe, Christianity is spreading rapidly in Latin America, sub-Saharan Africa, China, and other places.”

“We are in uncharted waters.”

“In some communities, these kinds of efforts exist, but could be expanded. In others, new efforts may need to be initiated. Similarly, as religious disaffiliation grows and the percentage of Christians declines, the need grows stronger for broadly Christian institutions that can articulate Christian principles in a publicly accessible way.”

“This essential work should be embraced, supported, and even expanded. Finally, if public life and politics are important (as we believe they are) Christians and churches may want to partner with political organizations – explicitly faith-based and not – who align with their values and mission, in a similar way as they partner with organizations focused on missionary work, global development, disaster relief, and other areas of concern.”

NCF OUTLINES WEAR DOCUMENT GOALS 

NCF  STATED GOALS in supporting the Trinity Forum /Obama Foundations Michael Wear

Work to connect Christian thought to public life

“Many Christians … are not well equipped to connect the teachings of their faith with its implications for public life.”

Reintroduce Christianity

“Building on this idea of what pluralism requires of Christians, we believe Christians should view rising religious disaffiliation and secularism as not just a challenge, but an opportunity.”

Build bridges

“In a pluralistic environment, diverse relationships and interactions are essential to living out the command to love your neighbor.”

Be distinct

“Diversity alone doesn’t make for healthy pluralism. Pluralism is healthy when people feel they can enter the public as they are, free to express themselves without fear. ”

DEMOCRACY FUND SUPPORTS THESE  EFFORTS

 

” We believe the best days of American democracy lie ahead. Bipartisan solutions can modernize our elections. Digital advances can help people engage in civic life. New incentives can encourage political leaders to find principled compromise and address our country’s greatest challenges”
Pierre Omidyar created Democracy Fund out of deep respect for the U.S. Constitution and our nation’s core democratic values. While no democracy is perfect, the American system has endured through times of severe stress and dramatic social change. This system has proven its value and continues to hold the promise of effective, representative governance. Today, technologies and innovations offer new opportunities for public engagement in a more vibrant democracy — even as serious challenges including hyper-partisanship, money in politics, and struggling media threaten the health of our political system.
  • Fostering a just and inclusive society and protecting those Americans whose civil rights and safety appear to be endangered in this emerging landscape.
  • Ensuring government accountability and protecting our system of checks and balances.
  • Convening analysts and scholars from across the political spectrum to examine and glean insights from the evolving views of the electorate through the Democracy Fund Voter Study Group.

“Grantees include: ProPublica, the Center for Investigative Journalism, the Ethics and Public Policy Center, the Institute for Social Policy and UnderstandingCivic Nation, the German Marshall Fund, the Project on Government Oversight, the Security and Rights Collaborative, and the Institute for Constitutional Advocacy and Protection.”

ONE EXAMPLE OF THEIR FUNDING TOWARD PRO ISLAMIC POLICY

CIVIC NATION

“Our current political climate has left notions of equality and tolerance to fall to the wayside of hate and fear. While this division affects a wide variety of people, the rise in anti-Muslim rhetoric and actions must specifically be addressed. To do this, community organizing needs to be supported by a strategic, wide-reaching messaging campaign. This grant supports Civic Nation in their partnership with NBC Universal on the Erase the Hate campaign.”

https://www.democracyfund.org/portfolio/entry/institute-for-social-policy-understanding

The Institute for Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU)

“The Institute for Social Policy and Understanding (ISPU) is an organization focused on providing objective, solution-based research to educate the general public on trends that are affecting the American Muslim community, and enable change leaders, media actors, and policy makers to make informed decisions. Their research aims to empowers American Muslims to develop communities that fully contribute to democracy and increased unity in the United States.”

https://www.democracyfund.org/about-us#investment-criteria

CONCLUSION

Clearly the work of Trinity Forum, The Obama Foundation’s Michael Wear , and now National Christian Foundation in it’s first openly political stance is revealing a set of core values these organizations and individuals share for the church. It is political and it is Third Way.

Third Way is already deemed a political failure from its origins in Fabian Socialism , Tony Blair, the Labor Party in the UK and Bill Clinton in the US.

https://www.jacobinmag.com/2020/01/third-way-democratic-socialism-tony-blair-bill-clinton-uk

The conclusion is that Third Way’s “FAILURE” has now become the open door for Socialism,

“The Third Way Is the Past. Socialism Is the Future.”

True to form with progressive agendas, we may very well be seeing the original intent as the seminaries, denominations and churches are being overwhelmed by “social justice” intersectionality, liberation theology ,and “critical theory” along with the dregs of post modern “thinking” .That is, if you dare believe minds awash in critical theory are any longer capable of critical thinking.

A unique & crafted brand Socialism is FLOODING THE CHURCH.

History proves a challenge to assertions that a Third way even exist and it is likely that a generation of preachers are already lost to the seductions we see revealed here. The church- the true Body of Christ will no doubt endure but will suffer loss from this ill advised voyage and sadly many souls will likely perish as a result of it.

SOCIAL CHANGE HAS BEEN ACCOMPLISHED IN THE CHURCH AND WE WILL ALL PAY THE PRICE.

Apparently ALL of the Trinity Forum / Wear partners also fit into the pro Muslim, progressive political ideology and goals of the Democracy Fund and its founder. Trinity, Wear, NCF, and Guinness have close ties to Tim Keller and The Gospel Coalition which continues to be the “force for social change ” among conservative churches especially in the PCA and SBC.

Now NCF which is one of the largest donors in the nation to Christian ministries is openly endorsing the “Christianity, Pluralism, and Public Life in America: Insights from Christian Leaders”

How is that possible that NCF and  Trinity Forum now find allies among these pro -Islamic organizations like the Obama Foundation and Democracy Fund? One answer is  simple. There is a lot money in the room. Billionaires like Soros , Singer and Omidyar are well inside the door with leading ” Christian thinkers “.

What does this mean for the church given the slick “Pluralistic” rhetoric of the Trinity Forum/Wear report?

Time will tell if the grassroots conservative Christians will buy the narrative.

It appears many if not most of the Christian Leaders has already sold out to it.

Exodus 34:12-15

“Watch yourself that you make no covenant with the inhabitants of the land into which you are going, or it will become a snare in your midst. “But rather, you are to tear down their altars and smash their sacred pillars and cut down their Asherim –for you shall not worship any other god, for the LORD, whose name is Jealous, is a jealous God–
otherwise you might make a covenant with the inhabitants of the land and they would play the harlot with their gods and sacrifice to their gods, and someone might invite you to eat of his sacrifice”

OPEN LETTER TO SOUTHERN BAPTIST EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE AND ELRC TRUSTEES :TOPIC RUSSELL MOORE

DIRE WARNINGS FROM THE PEW:SOUTHERN BAPTIST HAVE GROWN WEARY OF RUSSELL MOORE AND FOR GOOD REASONS
Rev Thomas Littleton                                                                                                    3/5/2020
In February the Executive Committee of the Southern Baptist Convention leadership voted to form a “task force” to look into the ERLC (AGAIN) regarding how the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission’s actions in relation to its ministry statements
are affecting the Convention and its relationships with local churches, local associations, and state conventions.” . The ERLC responded  in an open letter calling the investigation  “unwarranted, divisive, and disrespectful.” The EC responded to the Open letter saying ” “We respect the right of the ERLC trustees and chairman Prince to respond to the SBC Executive Committee’s formation of a study task force,” the EC officers wrote in the response. “It was never our intention to communicate disrespect or seek to divide. This is not an attempt to remove Dr. Moore or to direct his staff”
In the midst of all these assurances and standard Baptist niceties in this exchange Executive Committee and ERLC Trustees need to face the facts. Russell Moore is the source of much of the issues/division facing the SBC. Cooperative Program giving is impacted by Moore as it was in 2017 when 14 of a reported 75 churches withheld a confirmed $1.5 million in giving over Moore’s hateful anti Trump rhetoric and pro Democratic party alliances .
Today his politics are more out of the closet than they have ever been as he works openly with organizations funded by activist billionaires like Paul Singer and chums like “Obama Foundation Ambassador to America’s Believers “Michael Wear. A Democrat at heart with the soul of a change agent and loyalties divided across a spectrum of non Baptist persons and organizations, Moore may have been allowed to be a fringe Southern Baptist but he is hardly fit to lead the ERLC and be our chief lobby and ethics representative and spokesperson in DC or the National Media. GUYS- Russell Moore does NOT SPEAK FOR US.
(Background for those reading this open letter who are unaware of the events addressed in it )
The Task Force.
More BP coverage of the events.
ERLC Trustee Open Letter.
8 REASONS WHY THE ISSUES WITH THE ERLC ARE ABOUT RUSSELL MOORE AND WHY IGNORING OR WHITEWASHING THESE ISSUES WILL FURTHER HARM THE SBC.
Consideration 1
Russell Moore is a self indulgent contrarian to the Southern Baptist identity .He knows it – likes the position and is proven to enjoy being controversial  since his first Wall Street Journal interview article in October 2013 where he informed fatigued Baptist early in the second term of the radical Obama administration that “The culture War is over and that it had been “Lost” by Christians.
This was not merely the voice of fatalism but the jubilant chorus of talking points from Frankfurt School inspired Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture / James Davison Hunter who coined the very phraseology echoed by Moore who was a CLOSE FRIEND  of the Obama administration. Moore frequented the oval office even as he relentlessly accused Southern Baptist politics and as he leveled assault after assault against Candidate now President Donald Trump. We have not forgotten that the Executive Committee did take note of Moore at the time and shortened his leash. Make no mistake ,neither he, his loyalties nor his politics have changed. Russell Moore has made that abundantly clear.
Consideration 2
Russell Moore and the ERLC have been doing public binge drinking at the trough of progressive political ideologies shamelessly since the 2018 MLK/50 Conference they co-  hosted with The Gospel Coalition. Current concerns surrounding this event gave rise to the Dallas Statement and the very real push back against Resolution 9 going into SBC 2020 meeting in Orlando. MLK/50 is likely the turning point that has now birthed the Conservative Baptist Network even if many in it do not realize the fact.  Baptist know our seminaries are in trouble because of  Social Justice and Critical Theory and other ideologies which have bought their way in. Moore and his staff are products of those very problems within the Seminaries like SBTS where Moore has  held positions for over
2 1/2 decades. SBC churches arrive at these disturbing realities in the Seminaries when they hire some students or recent graduates who are indoctrinated with them and are usually avid devotees of Moore.
MLK/50 was dancing on the fringe of heresy due to it’s embrace of “White Privilege” and the King legacy as orthodox Christianity. While Moore’s ongoing appearances with John Perkins who openly advocated Wealth Redistribution and Economic Justice gives the impression Moore is simply one more guy out to drive race as a wedge to fuel white guilt and separate Baptist from their money.
Guilt as  a DRIVER or motivator is a common  theme in Moore’s daily narrative against Southern Baptist. It is exhausting and he needs to be reminded he was not hired to be our conscience or our mother. Stop Russell Moore from thinking his job is to “peck on the heads of Southern Baptist “. Enough already.
Consideration 3
Russell Moore is way too cozy with Catholic leaders during the time many Catholics are concerned about their own Latin American Marxist Pope. Moore’s close relationship with Acton Institute, it’s longtime founder radical gay activist turned Catholic Priest Father Sirico. Moore’s ERLC hiring of Acton’s (and TGC) editor Joe Carter to be his ERLC message man was over the top coordination with non Southern Baptist power brokers. Among his other close Catholic ties we find Robert George who spoke at Moore’s “inauguration” for some odd reason into the leadership of an SBC entity.
Ryan Anderson is another of these disturbing Moore associates. So are the many Catholic publications who promote Moore’s articles and at whose events Moore speaks.These together make the impression that Moore is far more at home among his maternal Catholic heritage than his Baptist position of responsibility and JOB.
Moore picked an ERLC Fellow who teaches at Jesuit institution Georgetown to provide the 2020 ERLC “civil political engagement ” whitepaper. Moore sees himself as a “Uniter not a Divider ” as he plays with and tweets pics of his bobble head doll between those of Pope Francis and Luther on the 500th anniversary of the Reformation. Perhaps he is better suited for the Vatican than Nashville. Given the grave heresy and “Extra Biblical doctrines of the current Pope and much of Catholic doctrine- this humor is hardly becoming an SBC leader on the 500th anniversary of the Reformation which was sealed with the blood of many who enjoined its Biblical stand.
Image result for russell moore a uniter not a divider
Consideration 4 
Russell Moore makes no secret that he is a Democrat or that he aspired to a political Career. Many Baptist observe that he is using his position at the ERLC to enjoy a virtual political career at the expense of both Southern Baptist giving and  the expensive losses
Baptist are incurring on his otherwise preoccupied “watch ” as our lobbyist and chief ethics spokesman.
Moore looks to have lost his way or was never pointed in the Southern Baptist direction to begin with. At present Russell Moore is working in VERY close ALLIANCES with the political  partners of the & Campaign .One partner Justin Giboney is a Democratic Party Strategist and former Obama and Hillary Delegate. While the other & Campaign leader Michael Wear is the former faith outreach and faith based partnership coordinator for the Obama Administration and is now ,as pointed out above, is the “Obama Foundation Ambassador the America’s Believers.”
Moore has worked with Giboney since at least MLK/50 and will again in March at the anti Trump”Just Gospel Conference” near DC to be held in an SBC church whose pastor is an ERLC Fellow. This church also held the Radical LGBTQ Inclusion Audit for Churhcesin 2018.
Moore repeatedly appears with Obama’s Michael Wear in the Soros funded National Immigration Forum’s “Evangelical Immigration Round Table”.
The & Campaign where these two Moore associates are doing their political pitch of “Biblical Values & Social Justice ” is in partnership with Billionaire LGBTQ funder Paul Singer and his American Unity Fund. Singer funds, along with the LDS (Mormons),ended
opposition to gay marriage in the 2012 election  cycle when Singer donated massive amounts into the Romney Campaign and the GOP national convention. & Campaign
also boast several ERLC leaders in it’s ranks as well as NAMB Send Network urban activist pastors. Russell Moore’s continued work with & Campaigns executive leaders gives SBC pastors to whom he serves as a mentor that the false impression that these contradictions of loyalties are good for the Gospel and the SBC. Far from the truth.
Consideration 5
Russell Moore and his ERLC are repeatedly aligned with LGBTQ activist . Since his 2013 WSJ interview Moore has been out to persuade Baptist that they are homophobic. He introduced an entire herd of speakers to echo gender ,feminine and queer theory rhetoric in nonstop conferences and interviews since 2014. This is in spite of the reality that LGB represent only 2.3% of the population  according to the US Census .Also Trans is a non measured minority (which will change in the 2020 Census for political reasons) Moore even met behind closed doors with Human Rights Campaign (another Paul Singer
funded organization ) whose radical political agenda has us facing the  REAL Religious Liberty threat known as the “Equality Act” which will make LGBTQ equal to race and offer total protections against discrimination without any religious exemptions.
& Campaign is also promoting the Paul Singer hedge bet to the Equality Act called “Fairness for All” which the LDS drafted in 2016 as the “Utah Compromise ” of “Religious Liberty and LGBTQ Rights”. No such possible compromise exist as LGBTQ activist view religious exemptions for Religious Liberty as “License to Discriminate ” and wish to force churches to hire LGBTQ staffers, promote the normalization of LGBTQ identity and sexuality and redefine Christian Faith to affirm their political agenda.
By 2018 multiple ERLC Fellows ,staff , and consulting partners were endorsing the radical Revoice LGBT+ Thriving Conference in St Louis. In private interview at SBC Dallas June 2018  Russell Moore denied Knowledge of Revoice Conference in spite of his ERLC cohorts who endorsed it the months prior  to SBC 2018 .By the next day of the convention Moore stood up to field questions including about Revoice and again denied any knowledge of the movement to “promote LGBT+ Flourishing in historic Christian tradition” when he had been involved in discussions about it the previous day.
Russell Moore stood up and lied to over 9000 SBC messengers and defended his ERLC fellow who had endorsed Revoice and had been literally  “hit by a bus in Nashville”. Meanwhile the Revoice BUS has gone on in the SBC unchecked as Moore’s SBTS friends hide its origins at SBTS in the Resolutions Committee 2019 who buried a resolution from Oklahoma pastor Steve Kern denouncing Revoice. Multiple strong associations to Revoice and its leaders by ERLC staffers hired by Moore include Andrew Walker who tag teams with Revoice leader Matthew Lee Anderson at conferences on LGBTQ issues. Nice right? Very cozy ties to the pro LGBT+ Flourishing movement that is splitting the PCA denomination as the SBC task force looks into the ERLC whose leader Russell Moore “knows nothing about it”.
Consideration 6
I attended the SBC Dallas 2019 meetings as a reporter for World View Weekend and to represent the Revoice story which I had broken to the public 5 weeks prior .When I personally sought an interview with Russell Moore his staffer (a recent hire who was chased out of the GOP TN offices for subverting conservative leaders) physically
grabbed my arm to force me away from speaking to Moore . This unwelcome and unwarranted  contact constitutes a class C assault by TX law but was overlooked by me
as I did obtain a brief off the record discussion with Moore. By 2:00 the next day the same ERLC staffer glared across the SBC expo at me just before two armed
and uniformed Dallas Police approached me  saying someone was claiming I “threatened them” ( threatened the person who made the complaint). Though the officers would not identify the person who complained to them the ERLC staffer Brent Leatherwood was waiting outside the expo door on the phone as the officers escorted me from the building BEFORE Russell Moore was to take the stage for the ERLC report and Q and A.
Leatherwood hung up the phone and joined the right side officer taunting and seeking to escalate the situation until the officer made him cease. The police had been told I threatened to “kick someone ***” exact wording – which was a complete fabrication
by the ERLC. The resulting press stories are now part of SBC annual folk lore but at NO POINT did the ERLC own up to the fact they lied to the security team of Dallas PD at the convention in 2018 on the day security was very high due to the VP Pence appearance at the Convention. All these lies placed myself and SBC Convention goers at risk .This endangerment to SBC Annual Convention goers was risked simply to have  a reporter removed for asking questions about Revoice and SBTS/ERLC ties to it.
The FULL story is told in detail here which thousands of Baptist have read and dozens of interviews have been covered .
Many are still shocked by the reality that Russell Moore and his ERLC team would resort to lying to Dallas police / their own security team and even send out a young blonde girl to deny the Dallas Police had been involved and lie to the Christian Press.  At present there are three CONFLICTING  ERLC  and EC stories about this as yet unresolved situation concerning my removal from SBC 2018 and none of them square  with the Dallas Police Report on file at Dallas City Hall PR department. I have the Dallas Police Report and the 3 false versions from the ERLC in writing should the EC or Trustees wish to look into these shameful actions of Moore’s ERLC staff whose salaries we pay.
I was soon being sent report after report of Russell Moore’s DISHONEST HISTORY INCLUDING HIS FALSE CLAIMS OF ABUSE and threats as a Baptist Press reporter himself in 2000.
(History of Russell Moore’s dishonesty recorded in 2000 when he was a reporter for Baptist Press)
” In 2000, many general assembly attendees accused BP writer Russell Moore of inaccuracies and blatant fabrications in several stories— most notably a report where he claimed that a former missionary attending the meeting physically assaulted him. Moore is now a dean at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.”
Consideration 7
Russell Moore espouses orthodox theology and doctrine while actively behaving as a change agent in the SBC/ERLC. He wears a face of a Southern Baptist but shows his alliances to politics , policy , people and progressive social positions counter to Southern Baptist . His convictions displayed in his activist culture at ERLC show he is contrary in many if not most ways to the Baptist Faith and Message though, like his mentor Albert Mohler, Moore can always be counted on to make public position statements to maintain plausible deniability which is a skilled way of being dishonest. Moore is out to bring social change to the SBC a.Al the while Moore is echoing orthodox positions- he is busy countering them in everyday reality.
In this Moore exercises a special type of tyranny over Baptist while he shifts his weight and positions and uses his endless guilt  and shaming on Baptist who dare to be firm and resolute in their own convictions. His flooding of a vast array of social justice jargon into the pro life /anti abortion movement is  a prime  example of Moore’s change agent
rhetoric.
Consideration 8
Last but not least (and these points are in no particular order ) Russell Moore is intentionally inaccessible to his constituents who pay his salary. Moore is known for and notorious for ignoring Baptist who are concerned about his stances and politics. Russell Moore moves about the SBC Annual meetings with his staffers in formation like a secret service detail with Russell Moore as the VIP or POTUS in the midst of a 5 point guard detail. My friend who accompanied me to SBC 2019  is a former military guard who recognized the formation from his days guarding military brass during Iraq deployment.
My friend from North Alabama was at his first ever SBC annual meeting and commented that Moore looks /acts like a  “Cocky Banty Rooster ( that is a dwarf breed of male chicken for those non country boys in the EC and Trustees.) https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Banty%20Rooster
What a sad impression Russell Moore and his “security detail ” made to a first time Convention goer who hoped to speak to Moore.
Example in this photo of VIP Security Training -Russell Moore would be the Principle in the ERLC security formation. This IS how Russell Moore moves in out and around the SBC Convention floor. No JOKE… except on those of us who are paying for it in CP funding.
AGAIN take notice EC Task Force -This is how Russell Moore enters moves around and leaves the SBC annual event. None of the other SBC leaders who are more well known than Moore carry a visible security detail .
One has to ask is “Russell Moore scared of fellow Southern Baptist, is he just a very insecure person with some phobia of crowds , or is he actually delusional in regard to his own self importance?”
Perhaps he is just playing POTUS but if so Moore is playing at Southern Baptist expense.
Besides his devoted following among Seminary students and young rebellious progressives, Moore is far less known to the average Southern Baptist than men like Paige Patterson or Adrian Rogers. But his impact is felt by all Baptist in the compromised positions of the ERLC under his watch which have placed the political influence and the public integrity of the SBC in ill light for years . Those of us who  do know who he is and what he has been up to since 2013 are really quiet weary of him and his rhetoric .
Russell Moore does not represent Southern Baptist at least not honestly .
That should cover the issues you need to consider in the EC Task Force and that the ERLC Trustees should lay to heart . All of you should at least  make a mental note so you can know why you will soon be witness to a mass exodus from the SBC if the Russell Moore ERLC status quo remains after this task force investigation is done. CP giving will certainly be impacted by that development.
ONE MORE THING….
I would add as well- “Please look into Russell Moore’s bizarre obsession with Sex Robots .
It is simply too obvious not to bring up.
Thanks Rev Thomas Littleton

2 Samuel 23

David’s Last Words

23 Now these are the last words of David.

Thus says David the son of Jesse;
Thus says the man raised up on high,
The anointed of the God of Jacob,
And the sweet psalmist of Israel:

“The Spirit of the Lord spoke by me,
And His word was on my tongue.
The God of Israel said,
The Rock of Israel spoke to me:
‘He who rules over men must be just,
Ruling in the fear of God.
And he shall be like the light of the morning when the sun rises,
A morning without clouds,
Like the tender grass springing out of the earth,
By clear shining after rain.’

“Although my house is not so with God,
Yet He has made with me an everlasting covenant,
Ordered in all things and secure.
For this is all my salvation and all my desire;
Will He not make it increase?
But the sons of rebellion shall all be as thorns thrust away,
Because they cannot be taken with hands.
But the man who touches them
Must be [a]armed with iron and the shaft of a spear,
And they shall be utterly burned with fire in their place.”

MOHLER’S HOME CHURCH THIRD AVE BAPTIST IS HOSTING THIS MINISTRIES EVENT 

OUR VISION

DSC_0597.JPG

Glorify God by partnering with local churches to love refugees and immigrants.

“We are intentionally focused on cultivating long term relationships by making ourselves as accessible as possible to refugee and immigrant communities. We pursue our vision through three main initiatives: (1) operating a Welcome Center embedded in an ethnically diverse neighborhood, (2) coordinating Welcome Family Teams to introduce local churches into the lives of refugees and immigrants, and (3) hosting various medical/dental/sports clinics and events that serve as relational connection points for local churches and internationals.”

OUR DISTINCTIVES

RELATIONSHIP-driven programs, not just community centers

“We believe in the transformative power of human relationships. We introduce compassionate and holistic support to refugees and immigrants in our communities as we partner with local churches. Our Welcome Family Teams, Welcome Center, and various events all serve to connect local church members into long term relationships with refugees and immigrants.”

https://www.refugeintl.org/welcome-teams

“Refuge Welcome Teams are trained groups from local churches who befriend refugee families and help them transition into life in a new culture. Whether it’s grocery shopping together, riding to a doctor’s appointment, or celebrating a refugee’s first birthday in America, Welcome Teams have innumerable opportunities to love refugees.”

“Where a refugee might otherwise feel lonely and isolated, Welcome Teams are able to come alongside them and let them know that they are not alone on their new journey in a foreign land.”

WELCOME TEAMSENGLISH MENTORINGHOME HEALTH & SAFETY CLASSWOMEN’S TEALANGUAGE-SPECIFIC BIBLE STUDIESASYLEE PROGRAMLOUISVILLE UNITEDCOFFEE ENGLISH CLASSES

The above efforts all fall under the problematic Faith Based Partnership Models which makes funding form the Federal Government and other internaitonal and private organizations available to participating ministries and churches . VERY Dangers and a conflict of interest and inhibits ministry  of the Gospel or any”explicitly Religious Activity by law.

CONCLUSION 

Mohler attends a Baptist church which pastor by one of his  disciples which is doing “Community Service “model of Social Justice WOKE ministries including Public School involvement, Foster Care Training , AND Refugee Resettlement Volunteer Training with partners from the  Refugee Organizations and The University of Louisville along  with private Real Estate interest who  support the Refugee Resettlement with housing.

According to a former Muslim who is a Christian refugee in the US -All “Religious Refugees” must apply for immigration to the US through the United Nations and Muslims are “moved to the front of the line right behind LGBTQ “Refugees” and Christians are placed at the back often waiting for 5 years or more “.

So Mohler’s church like Summit of current SBCPresident J D Greear are training their people to be the welcome wagon and use their churches as “Welcome Centers for Muslim Refugees ” along with the LGBTQ refugees at the front of the line.

ALBERT MOHLER’S IMPACT ON NAMB

This is nothing new for Mohler as his former pastor Kevin Ezell is using the resources of North American Missions Board /Send Relief and the SBC Cooperative Programs to do the VERY SAME.

https://gobnm.com/sbc_news/namb-to-host-loving-your-muslim-neighbor-event-may/article_b65aae6c-66c8-11e9-ac7e-d338f83103b1.html

“ALPHARETTA, Ga. (BNM) – A May 2 conference hosted by the North American Mission Board hopes to encourage and equip Christians to love their Muslim neighbors.”

“The one day conference, “Islam and North America: Loving Your Muslim Neighbor,” will take place at NAMB’s offices in Alpharetta, Ga. A simulcast of the event will be available online at www.namb.net. Registration for both the conference and simulcast is free.”

“During the event, speakers Bob Roberts, Ed Stetzer, Andy DeFelice, Micah Fries, Keith Whitfield and Kambiz Saghaey will teach attendees “how to share the Gospel with Muslims while being sensitive to the fact they may have encountered negative reactions from others in [their] community,” according to a NAMB promotional email.”

“Muslim populations in the U.S. are often fearful due to both real and imagined prejudices. This makes it all the more important to begin a relationship with a Muslim or a Muslim family from a posture of genuine neighborly love. We want to share with and show those in your church how to love your neighbors in ways that open doors for Gospel conversations,” NAMB added.”

NOW NAMB /MOHLER’S FORMER PASTOR HAVE BUILT A MUSLIM REFUGEE CENTER WITH SEND RELIEF AND WORLD VISION /WORLD RELIEF PARTNERS ON BOARD.

https://thirtypiecesofsilver.org/2020/02/10/southern-baptist-namb-send-relief-build-muslim-welcome-center-fema-response-hub/

As SBC President Albert Mohler would no doubt be CALLING ALL SOUTHERN BAPTIST  to volunteer  and Baptist Churches to become Muslim Welcome Center.  In June 2020 at the SBC Orlando Baptist need to say “NO THANKS Albert Mohler- we will use our churches for the spread of the Gospel “.

IS ALBERT MOHLER DOUBTING HIMSELF? PART ONE.

WITH THE SBC’s PRESENT TROUBLES BREWING “ON ALBERT MOHLER’S WATCH “, HE AND HIS HENCHMEN MAY BE DOUBTING HIS ABILITY TO WIN SBC PRESIDENCY.

Rev Thomas Littleton                                                                                              22/24/2020

Since October 2019 Albert Mohler ,President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (SBTS)  in Louisville KY has been making Baptist news as the presumed new/next front runner to replace current controversial SBC President J D Greear. Some in the SBC are facing “buyers remorse ” over Greear,  the young mega church pastor from North Carolina after his advocacy for “Pronoun Hospitality urging Baptist to live in the subjective reality of and use the preferred pronoun of transgender culture in order to make LGBTQ people “feel welcome”.

The idea of a Mohler presidency raises fears that it might deliver even more CREEP of the “WOKE”, Chrislam, Social Justice,Revoiced, Egalitarian Christianity threatening the denominations very existence in a not too distant future. Concern and growing frustration are ALREADY causing the SBC to hemorrhage both churches and members in a decades long decline that has proven irreversible thus far. This decline is also attributable to poor management of the Cooperative Program funding and programs which have resulted in big spending and negative growth for over a decade. More on these CP/ NAMB problems in article two in this series.

Regarding the 2020 Orlando election, Baptist seem to be understanding that ALL these ills coming upon the SBC took place on Al Mohler’s watch as President pf its flagship SBTS. Where was Al if not in the kitchen while all these ingredients were being adding to the SBC stew? The question more Southern Baptist may be  considering is “Can the SBC afford more Mohler influence?”.

BIG AL FOR PRESIDENT

H.B. CHARLES ANNOUNCED HIS INTENTIONS TO NOMINATE MOHLER ON OCT. 31ST 2019

http://www.bpnews.net/53859/mohler-i-will-accept-nomination-as-sbc-president

“H.B. Charles Jr., senior pastor of mega Shiloh Metropolitan Baptist Church in Jacksonville, Fla., tweeted Thursday (Oct. 31) his intention to nominate Mohler when the SBC meets June 9-10, 2020, in Orlando, Fla.”

“I’m delighted to announce my prayerful intention to nominate @albertmohler as our next SBC president when we gather together in Orlando in June 2020 for our annual meeting,” said Charles… “Our times are filled with serious challenges from our culture, along with as incredible opportunities for Gospel witness.”

“Charles promoted Mohler as one capable of mobilizing the SBC behind a common vision.”

MOHLER SOLIDIFIED CHARLES NOMINATION QUICKLY ON NOVEMBER 1ST 

“I am honored by the announcement by Pastor H. B. Charles, and I will accept nomination as president of the Southern Baptist Convention in June,” Mohler told BP. “All my life, I have sought to serve whenever asked by my denomination, and I would hope, if elected, to serve in a way that would unite Southern Baptists, strengthen our work together, add energy to our evangelism, and keep our hearts set on taking the [G]ospel to the nations.”

RECENT LANGUAGE SUGGEST MOHLER MAY BE LEAVING HIMSELF AN OUT.

Mohler granted an interview with B21 /Nate Akin during the recent Executive Committee (EC ) meeting where controversies manifest over the ERLC which is led by Mohler’s unpopular protege’  Democratic politician Russell Moore. Among other business, the EC appointed a task force to look into the ERLC where activist Moore and his Latte Mafia are having a negative impact (again) on Cooperative Funding .Over 100 churches withheld funding from the CP after Moore’s non stop inappropriate rhetoric against candidate Donald J Trump in 2016  wearied Trump enough to name the little  Baptist lobbyist calling Moore a “nasty guy with no heart”. Russell Moore is the guy who is ever shaming Christians for “hurting the Gospel ” by their “hateful public political rhetoric. ” The irony and hypocrisy of Moore’s two faced approach is wearing thin with many Baptist as are his left wing political affiliations like the Obama White House and now Obama Foundation.

These problems DO blow back on Mohler since he both educated and employed Russell Moore for over 20 years at SBTS and was a large part of the force behind Moore’s rise through the SBC ranks to  the head of the ERLC. The EC decision to look into ERLC is a problem for both Moore and Mohler and leaves a cloud of suspicion over both.

Meanwhile the B21 interview used language implying uncertainty concerning  the Mohler nomination though it was already acknowledged and accepted by  Mohler for the Presidency of the SBC in Orlando. The B21 wording strikes a cord of of a possible withdrawal of Mohler campaign. It has happened BEFORE.

NOTE :Akin refers to Mohler as a ‘potential candidate” for presidency of the SBC.

WHY?

“During the recent SBC Executive Committee meetings, Baptist21’s Nate Akin had the opportunity to interview Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr, President of SBTS and potential candidate for the 2020 SBC Presidential Election. During this interview with Dr. Mohler, the following important topics were addressed:”

  • The current state of the Southern Baptist Convention
  • Dr. Mohler’s candidacy for SBC President
  • The newly announced Conservative Baptist Network
  • Critical Race Theory and more.

NOTE these issues and more are plaguing Mohler and promise to persist  given the mounting opposition to the mere idea of his “POTENTIAL” SBC leadership.

B21 Podcast Featuring Dr. Al Mohler

MOHLER HAS BEEN LAUDED AS THE SBC HAS CONTINUED IT’S DECLINE

As a darling of the national media, Mohler wears such labels as “one of America’s most influential evangelicals”, “reigning intellectual of the evangelical movement in the U.S.” and has boasted at least a half dozen times to this writer that he “has appeared on the Larry King show 44 times”. (Forget that King retired over a decade ago.)

IS ALBERT MOHLER A BAPTIST RINO?

SURPRISING HISTORY OF THE LIBERAL ALBERT MOHLER 

While Mohler is regarded as a towering figure in the “Conservative Resurgence ” in the SBC  led by Paige Patterson and other imposing men of the Pulpit, Mohler has enjoyed haunting the hallowed halls of academia and has VERY LITTLE pastoral experience. Mohler followed in the wake of the leaders of the Conservative Resurgence which was defined by a singular focus upon the issue of “inerrancy of the Bible. The Mohler ascent to the Presidency of the denomination’s flagship Seminary SBTS came in 1993 after a short 3 year stint writing /editing at Georgia’s State Baptist Newspaper ” The Christian Index “.

BUT prior to his position at Georgia Index Mohler was FAR FROM a CONSERVATIVE.

According to Mohler’s close friend and college “pen pal” Mark Dever of Capitol Hill Baptist Church in DC and founder of 9MARKS (semi woke church planting organization), Albert Mohler was liberal in his views. Al was ” egalitarian ” in his views of inclusion of women for ordination and in pulpits and DID NOT BELIEVE IN THE INERRANCY OF SCRIPTURE “.

Reformation and the SBC: A Round Table Interview with Tom Ascol, Mark Dever, and Jared Longshore

Reformation and the SBC: A Round Table Interview with Tom Ascol, Mark Dever, and Jared Longshore

“In this interview, Jared Longshore asks Tom Ascol and Mark Dever about their 30+ year friendship, the reformation in Baptist life which has occurred over that time, and some counsel for the future work of gospel ministry.”

(NOTE : To hear Dever’s discussion of his history with the liberal young Albert Mohler forward to the last 15 minutes of the interview.)

TIMES THEY ARE A CHANGING

MOHLER WILL NOT RUN “UNOPPOSED” IN HIS BID TO BE SBC PRESIDENT AND HIS RIVAL ADDRESSES THE SBC PROBLEMS WHILE MOHLER  IGNORES HIS OWN ROLE IN THEM.

http://www.bpnews.net/54172/randy-adams-to-be-nominated-for-sbc-president

Randy Adams to be nominated for SBC president

“Adams’ intended nomination will be brought to messengers at the SBC annual meeting June 9-10 in Orlando, Fla.”

“Adams said that if elected, he would aim to focus on the SBC’s Great Commission efforts, rebuilding trust among the Convention’s churches, entities and other organizations, reported the Northwest Baptist Witness.”

“In an announcement on Adams’ personal website, he said he believes the SBC needs a directional shift.”

“I am allowing my name to be entered into nomination for the presidency of the SBC because I believe that we need a clear change in direction in order to fulfill our God-given mission and reverse our present course of decline in every key measurement of Great Commission advance,” Adams said in the announcement.”

“While Southern Baptists retain considerable ability to impact the world for Christ, we are currently experiencing our greatest challenge. After waging a decades-long battle for the Bible, we are in danger of losing the war we were founded to fight, that of advancing the Great Commission by making disciples and rescuing the captives of the evil one.”

“If we do not honestly confront issues others will do so, including those who do not love the SBC like we do. Christians must be able to engage in honest discourse, speaking the truth in love.”

ALBERT MOHLER MAY JUST BE MORE WORRIED THAN HE WILL EVER ADMIT AS A “FAILED RUN” FOR PRESIDENT WOULD FURTHER BLEMISH HIS IMAGE.

More OPPOSITION was announced just before Executive Committee meetings.

On Valentine’s Day 2020 the Conservative Baptist Network issued a press release and announced it’s movement to push back against some of the  KEY issues facing the SBC.

Home Page

OUR PURPOSE

“The Conservative Baptist Network is a partnership of Southern Baptists where all generations are encouraged, equipped, and empowered to bring positive, biblical solutions that strengthen the SBC in an effort to fulfill the Great Commission and influence culture. “

  • The Network affirms the longstanding Baptist beliefs as expressed in the Baptist Faith and Message 2000.
  • The Network affirms the inerrancy, supremacy, and sufficiency of the Bible in all facets of life and application.
  • The Network affirms religious liberty and encourages Christian individuals and churches to influence the culture by engaging in the public policy process and demonstrating their patriotism.
  • The Network rejects various unbiblical ideologies currently affecting the Southern Baptist Convention such as Critical Race Theory, intersectionality, and social justice.
  • The Network is committed to seeing the SBC function biblically — efficiently, and  strategically — believing Convention entities and leadership are accountable to and encouraged by the autonomous, local churches that cooperate together.

 

MOHLER IDENTIFIES HIMSELF IN OPPOSITION TO CBN IN A FOOLISH TWEET ATTEMPTING TO DEBUNK THE NEW GROUP. EC MEMBER ROD MARTIN COMMENTED.

Mohler has been associated with The Gospel Coalition, Together for the Gospel, and plethora of organizations with membership, vision AND mission statements, conferences, and sponsors. So IF he is not concerned about his own “conservative ” image and his candidacy for President of the SBC then why speak out against and establish yourself in/as opposition to the Conservative Baptist Network?

Image result for google image albert mohler

Since Mohler loves to do Q & A sessions called “Ask Me Anything” perhaps he will tell in advance if he is leaving himself an out in his bid for SC President in 2020 given the odds of winning may no longer be in his favor.

PARTS 2 AND 3 WILL EXAMINE THE DEEPER PROBLEMS WITHIN THE SBC ON MOHLER’S WATCH AND HIS ROLE IN THEM AND WILL ALSO DIVE DEEP INTO THE LINGERING DOUBTS THAT PLAGUE MANY WHO ONCE TRUSTED MOHLER AS A BIBLICAL CONSERVATIVE.

 

REVOICE LEADERS WELCOMED IN 2017 BY DAVID UTH HOST OF BAPTIST PASTORS CONFERENCE 2020

FIRST BAPTIST CHURCH ORLANDO PASTOR DAVID UTH WILL HOST THE KICK OFF TO THE SBC 2020 MEETINGS IN ORLANDO. THE CONTROVERSIAL PASTOR ALSO HOSTED REVOICE LEADERS IN 2017 “POSTURE SHIFT INTENSIVES” AT FBC ORLANDO

 

Rev Thomas Littleton                                                                                                2/12/ 2020

David Uth pastor of First Baptist Church Orlando has recently found himself in the midst of controversy after announcing the speakers for the 2020 Southern Baptist Pastors Conference to be held at this church.

http://www.bpnews.net/54310/pastors-conference-president-responds-to-lineup-concerns

The line up of speakers is problematic in part because it includes several non Southern Baptist one of whom is a  woman “Pastor”. This comes in the midst of a push for the SBC to consider the election of a woman (i.e. Beth Moore ) as president of the Convention while the SBC remains firmly committed to resist egalitarian ideology in ordination practices and pastoral roles for women.

David Uth explains his reasoning

“”My goal, my prayer was that we could open ourselves up to hear from people that maybe were good friends of ours, but not in our Southern Baptist Convention,” Uth said. “I feel like they have a message for us. I feel like God wants to speak to us through them. So my goal and my hope was that we could hear their message, we could learn from them, and we could embrace it.”

UTH PAST CONTROVERSY OVER LGBT /PULSE TRAGEDY

“Orlando’s Leaders Mourn Massacre Victims at Church Service”

“ORLANDO, Fla. — The city’s civic and religious leaders gathered on Tuesday night for prayer and song at the First Baptist Church of Orlando to mourn the 49 victims who died at the Pulse nightclub early on Sunday.”

In a Rueters article David Uth issued the following “Apology ” for Christians

‘WE APOLOGIZE’

“On Sunday, First Baptist Orlando Pastor David Uth plans to use his pulpit to remind his 19,000-member congregation that even if they do not agree with people’s lifestyle, they should remember that God’s love encompasses all.”

“We’re the worst at really, genuinely loving like Jesus,” he said of Baptists, calling it a church failure that gays and lesbians feel unwelcome in its pews. “That we own completely. We apologize.”

WHAT IS THE ERROR HERE?

PASTOR UTH IS OPERATING ON THE FALSE PRESUMPTION: “CHRISTIANS LACK COMPASSION TOWARD LGBTQ”

DAVID UTH HISTORY WITH REVOICE LEADERS AT FIRST BAPTIST ORLANDO

Meanwhile Daivid Uth and First Baptist Orlando have hosted the leaders of the disturbingly radical and divisive “Revoice LGBT+ Flourishing “movement in 2017 for a “Posture Shift  Intensive” training session. ( Posture Shift is a ministry which is lead by Bill Henson who works closely with Revoice leaders who he has hosted at the PS Orlando. Henson also works in/ with the Revoice event  which was in the planning and pre-launch stages inn 2017)

REVOICE HISTORY

REVOICE was founded by Albert Mohler disciple and SBTS New Testament teacher Nate Collins from Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. While still in the planning stages for the first Revoice conference held in St Louis MO in a PCA church -the Revoice leadership held a trail run working together in the POSTURE SHIFT INTENSIVE  of leader Bill Henson’s “Lead Them Home” ministry .

ALBERT MOHLER AND LGBT+ / REVOICE CONNECTIONS

Albert Mohler has his own history of compromise AND APOLOGIES  for the church on LGBTQ as detailed in the recent video by Dr E S Williams from the UK.

“Albert Mohler and the Gay Revolution”

“The purpose of this video is to evaluate the teaching of Dr Albert Mohler, president of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, on the subject of homosexuality. Mohler is encouraging the Church to embrace the issue of sexual orientation, a psychological concept that is entirely without biblical warrant. He accuses evangelicals of having lied about the nature of homosexuality and of practicing a form of homophobia. He fully supports the ministry of same-sex attracted Sam Allberry, a Church of England priest. His position is similar to that of the gay agenda, which seeks to normalize homosexuality in society and the Church.”

If you could only attend Day 1, you will get the full Curriculum Teaching. On Day 2, we will focus on “application” with table work and challenging Case Studies. It is very important to apply Day 1 content in order to process the teaching and increase retention rate and skill development. There is no discount for attending only one day.”

““A gospel of exclusion has NO power to reach already-banished people.”
–Bill Henson, Creator of Posture Shift”

ABOVE INFORMATION IS FROM THE 2017 AND 2019 POSTURE SHIFT ORLANDO

 

BILL HENSON WORK WITH SBTS  NATE COLLINS REVOICE 

ANNOUNCEMENT: Bill Henson, Lead Them Home Founder, will be a presenter at the Revoice Conference in St. Louis, MO

“ANNOUNCEMENT: Bill Henson, Lead Them Home Founder, will be a presenter at the Revoice Conference in St. Louis, MO”

“A new conference is on the horizon and we could not be more excited! Revoice Conference is being developed by some amazing friends and ministry partners of Lead Them Home, including Nate Collins, the author of All But Invisible, with the mission “to encourage, support, and empower gay, lesbian, and other same-sex-attracted Christians so they can experience the life-giving character of the historic, Christian sexual ethic.

“Revoice is a non-profit that believes in the traditional Christian sexual ethic and view of marriage. The aim though is to make the Church a place where LGBT+/SSA people are more welcomed and able to grow in their faith identity. The Conference will take place July 26-28 in St. Louis, MO and bring together the well-known speakers on this topic from all over the country.”

“We are excited to announce that Bill Henson, our founder, will be among those speakers. Bill will be teaching a workshop entitled Building Justice Bridges: How a Missiological Approach Shifts Our Posture and Reaches LGBT People. In this workshop, Bill will be presenting the missiological approach of Posture Shift for church leaders at the conference.”

“Along with Bill, other speakers include Preston Sprinkle, author of People to Be Loved, Wesley Hill, author of Washed and Waiting, as well as our very own Ray Low!”

CONCLUSION

SBC CHOICE OF THE CONTROVERSIAL PASTOR DAVID UTH TO HOST THE PASTORS CONFERENCE WHILE SBC 2020 IS HELD IN ORLANDO IN THE CULTURAL SHADOW OF PULSE NIGHTCLUB TRAGEDY IS NO ACCIDENT. 

SBC leaders like Albert Mohler, Russell Moore,  Ed Stetzer ( who will chair the SBC 2020 Resolutions Committee) and others KNOW that the Revoice movement in the SBC is a VERY DIVISIVE ISSUE . Response , or lack thereof. to Revoice errors in the Presbyterian Church of America is splitting that denomination already.

RESPONSE /OPPOSITION TO REVOICE IN PCA 2019

https://www.theaquilareport.com/responding-to-revoice-the-case-for-overture-28-at-the-pca-general-assembly-part-one/

BY JANUARY 2019 CONSERVATIVES IN THE PCA KNEW REVOICE WAS BEING COVERED UP

https://www.theaquilareport.com/is-revoice-lgbt-thriving-through-cover-up-in-pca-missouri-presbytery/

BY JUNE 2019 PCA GENERAL ASSEMBLY REVOICE CELEBRATED IT’S PCA VICTORY

https://thirtypiecesofsilver.org/2019/06/30/pca-general-assembly-revoice-hospitality-suite/

RECENT ANNOUNCEMENT OF THE PCA SPLIT

https://www.theaquilareport.com/vanguard-presbytery-a-new-presbyterian-denomination-being-formed/

WILL THE SBC SPLIT ? IF IT DOES -THE REASONS WILL BE CLEAR.

SBC LEADERS WANT TO MAINSTREAM “LGBT+ THRIVING ” ALONG WITH CRITICAL RACE THEORY AND INTERSECTIONALITY AND “REFUGEE RELOCATION” SOCIAL JUSTICE GOSPEL BECAUSE….

Clearly the main reason for the push of these controversial issues like Revoice and the choice of David Uth and First Baptist Church to host SBC 2020 Pastors Conference to “kick off” the Southern Baptist Conventions annual meeting in Orlando is because it PAYS.

Given the bonanza of Faith Based Grants and long term partnerships with state and federal government and private foundation/ corporations -the “New- Next -With It” SBC leadership can position themselves well in the “Brave New World”.

IF THE SBC SPLITS AND CONSERVATIVES LEAVE…THEY WILL SIMPLY BE DONE WITH THOSE OF US WHO HOLD BIBLICAL CONVICTION WHICH INSPIRES THE OPPOSITION TO THEIR LONG AND SHORT TERM GOALS !

It is likely that Albert Mohler, Ed Stetzer, Russell Moore, David Uth are SIMPLY  “WAITING TO EXHALE ” and say to regular, CONVENTIONAL, “problematic” and non progressive Southern Baptist -“GOOD RIDDANCE “.

WHILE SBC TALKING HEADS ATTACK BLOGGERS AND WHISTLE BLOWERS THEY POINT BONY FINGERS BLAMING THOSE PROPHETIC VOICES OF BEING DIVISIVE …

But in reality –

It is the change agents in SBC leadership embracing Revoice and OTHER radical ideologies who are dividing the denomination . It just may be intentional and according to plans.

ROMANS 16

Avoid Divisive Persons

17 “Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them. 18 For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple. 19 For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf; but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil. 20 And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly.”

“The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.”
