WEF PANEL TOPICS FOR LGBTQi+
WEF LBGTQ activists criticized the US for so-called “anti-LGBTQ” bills, legislatIon WHICH ARE AIMED at protecting children from transgender surgeries, womens sports, and women’s rights to single sex bathrooms, locker rooms, showers and other spaces.
ANTI-LGBTQI BILLS AT THE STATE LEVEL
Sarah Kate Ellis, President of GLAAD, SPOTLIGHTED “anti-LGBTQ” bills that she says are mostly “targeting trans youth”. GLADD , Her organization had “worked with corporations behind the scenes to THREATEN states to say… I’m gonna pull business. I need safe places for my employees in the United States.”
“There are multiple factors at play in the LGBTQI+ struggle, @JamaleddineFahd emphasizes the importance of considering the context as a whole.”
@wef@sarahkateellis@GLAAD speaks on the importance of ‘speaking up and out’ for marginalized people in the LGBTQI+ community.
(FROM Post Millennial WEBSITE)
“The idea that LGBTQ inclusion policies are economically beneficial stems from the WEF’s insistence that businesses should focus on “stakeholder capitalism” rather than the more traditional shareholder capitalism.”
“In the stakeholder capitalism model, companies must allocate resources to environmental and social issues alongside striving to be profitable. The WEF argues that being LGBTQ-inclusive is the secret to economic success in a post-pandemic world, as inclusive cities are claimed to be more innovative and attractive to young, creative minds.”
“Sharon Marcil, of Boston Consulting Group (BCG), said her company has enhanced “gender-affirming care” coverage and made “an enhancement in terms of inclusiveness in fertility.” This includes company coverage for surrogacy.”
Around min 9 – The discussion turns to corporations playing and “continuing to play a role and need to and it is being DEMANDED BY THE NEXT GENERATION.”
Min 11 – The assertion is made that the US has a significant number of anti -LGBT Youth legislative efforts. CEO’s can push back on this issue. Trans youth have the least voices and WE HAVE TO BE SPEAKING OUT FOR THEM.
Min 14- “Setting up PRIDE Communities in companies”
Min 15- Establishing public /private partnerships playing out the PR …Get ahead of it- we’ll have to do it given it is “demanded and expected”.
Min 16 -We brought up best practices of DEI and chose 8 best practices on how to implement that all over the world and make societal change.
Min 19- How do you con·ven·ience people that this is a basic human right?
Min 22 – No matter where we are working in the world (what culture) we have a common set of principles and purposes .
Min 24 -A really good model is in the US how we did marriage equality- its aright but it was the emotional appeal ..when we started talking about LOVE… Visibility is the KEY and lays the groundwork to move rights forward. ..by people knowing who WE ARE
Min 25- How can infiltrate or work with media and corporations to get the word out and bring visibility.
Min 26- On Transgender – In the US -who is making up the gap in education? -its the media.
Min 27 Q and A begins
WEF 2020 ASSERTED THAT LGBTQI INCLUSIVE CITIES -ARE PART OF THE “GREAT RESET ” RETURN TO POST COVID PROSPERITY “
• “Economies that are more inclusive are better placed to recover from the shocks of the COVID-19 pandemic.
• A strong positive correlation exists between LGBT+ inclusion and economic resilience.
• In particular, cities that embrace diversity may reap an ‘inclusion dividend’ as they begin to rebuild their economies.”
“As the world continues to grapple with the unprecedented global health crisis of COVID-19, the scale of the related global economic crisis is becoming increasingly clear. We are facing the sharpest economic contraction since the Great Depression in the 1930s, according to the United Nations – threatening to roll back decades of progress in the fight against poverty.”
“At the same time as taking emergency measures to minimize the immediate economic impacts of the pandemic, governments around the world are looking to position themselves for recovery. A new analysis of economic resilience offers a potential clue to which economies may be able to recover faster: LGBT+ inclusion is correlated to the resilience of a country’s economy.”
WEF PANELIST ASSERTS THAT LGBTQI+ RIGHTS ARE THE NEW BATTLE GROUND FOR HUMAN RIGHTS.
“Tirana Hassan, Interim Director at Human Rights Watch, “LGBT rights… are actually becoming signs of modernity,” and are becoming “a new battleground.”
‘This is not a fight that is over’ says @TiranaHassan on the importance of continuing to advance and protect LGBT rights around the world.”
Sharon MarciL talks about how support has improved for the LGBTQI+ community in the last 25 years, but there’s more work to be done.
WEF /DAVOS ” PRIDE ON THE PROMENADE “ 2023 EVENT WITH GLADD, HRC, UNITED NATIONS ,ACCENTURE AND THE LGBTQI COMMUNITY
(“The increase in representation and visibility of the LGBTQ community among the business world, and at landmark global events such as the World Economic Forum, is remarkable,” said Aron Cramer, President and CEO of BSR, the parent organization of PGLE.)
“The World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland is underway and LGBTQ visibility is high. Last night, the heads of state, CEOs, and civic and social leaders from around the globe were greeted with the Partnership for Global LGBTIQ+ Equality’s “Pride on the Promenade,” a united show of support for LGBTQ people through a rainbow light-up of multiple venues and signs across the Promenade, the main street of shops and cafes in Davos. “
“The initiative organized by PGLE, Accenture, and GLAAD celebrates the progress of LGBTQ human rights and serves as a call to action for necessary advances in global LGBTQ acceptance and equality. PGLE is a project of BSR, the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, and the World Economic Forum.”
“Accenture, AWS, Axios, Circle.com, Cisco, CNBC, Deloitte, EY, Female Quotient, Google, Hub Culture, IBM, Meta, Microsoft, Salesforce, SAP, Workday, and Zoom participated in ‘Pride on the Promenade’ by displaying rainbows and LGBTQ messages on screens and signage in exterior and interior hosted spaces located on and around the Promenade in Davos. “
“Launched during the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in 2019, the Partnership for Global LGBTIQ+ Equality (PGLE) is a coalition of organizations committed to leveraging their individual and collective advocacy to accelerate LGBTIQ+ equality and inclusion globally and drive positive change, through raising awareness and advancing implementation of the UN Standards of Conduct for Business on Tackling Discrimination against LGBTI people. The Partnership for Global LGBTIQ+ Equality (PGLE) is a coalition of organizations committed to leveraging their individual and collective advocacy to accelerate LGBTIQ+ equality and inclusion globally and drive positive change”
ACCORDING TO ALL GLOBAL ADVOCATES OF LGBTQI RIGHTS – RELIGIONS -ESPECIALLY CHRISTIANITY ARE “THE BIGGEST ENEMY OF LGBTQI+ RIGHTS“.
(FROM WEF 2018 ARTICLE ON THREATS TO LGBTQ RIGHTS)
TRUMP AND CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS WERE A THREAT?
(NOTE- Trump has never been a threat to LGBTI rights but has had the support of conservative evangelicals who do oppose the agenda. )
“Although the case stopped short of setting a precedent that would allow people to claim exemption from anti-discrimination laws for religious reasons, it highlighted tensions in the US between conservative Christians and the proponents of LGBTI rights.”
So the Christian Church has always been and will always be the primary target for social change from WITHIN .
CHRISTIAN LEADERS WORKING SOCIAL CHANGE FROM WITHIN
Here are clear examples of how compromised Christian Leaders are moving the church toward the Globalist vision ” BEYOND THE RAINBOW”.
American Seminaries and major denominations liek the Southern Baptist Convention and once conservative Presbyterians have promoted Gender/ Feminine / Queer theories and INTERSECTIONALITY for over a decade. Diversity Equity and Inclusion are the new MANTRA for Christian organizations.
(ARTICLE FROM MAY 2022)
In 2018 the Revoice movement promoting “LGBT+ Thriving in Historic (Conservative) Churches” surfaced after years of planning and educating in house activist in both the SBC and PCA flagship seminaries. The resulting controversies , divisions and splits have failed to turn these movements around at the highest levels and the LGBTI Critical Theories training continues.
In the above linked article readers can see how the LGBTQI “Inclusion ” movement is trickling down into local churches. In the link Below the movement is tracked into Christian Education in K-12 Christian School oversight organization ACSI
Even Bible Memorization focused AWANA ministry is joining the effort to feature WOKE and Revoice/ LGBT+ Thriving leaders in their training for Child Discipleship Forum.
Christian organizations around the world are seeking to partner with local and national governments and with the United Nations in global “relief” and “refugee resettlement” efforts as well as with Global Health Initiative ” and World Health Organization. Leaders like Baptist Rick Warren, Tim Keller, Walter Kim and Francis Collins and organizations like World Relief, National Association of Evangelicals, World Evangelical Alliance, Lausanne Movement continue to deepen their own ties with global interest like WEF and have shown complete willingness to take the institutional church and foolish Christians who follow them- down this deadly path INTO AGENDA 2030 DE&I metrics and including “LGBTI Inclusion- BEYOND THE RAINBOW ”
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.
THE RACE TO THE FRINGE CONTINUES. WITH LEADERS LIKE MATT CHANDLER THE CHURCH HAS LITTLE HOPE FOR A BIBLICALLY FAITHFUL “FUTURE “.
EXILES IN BABYLON
March 23-25, 2023 | Boise, Idaho

The lingering impacts of Revoice and its LGBT+ activism leadership continue to push their agenda across evangelical circles. Compromised pastors in The Gospel Coalition continue to press the limits while continuing to assert that TGC and they are rooted in biblically orthodoxy. & Campaign which is a direct extension of the Democratic Party and Obama Foundation into the conservative evangelical movements , continues to be endorsed by pastors . Meanwhile Baptist like Matt Chandler who has been selling the snake oil of “white privilege ” and CRT laced false gospel is one of many pastors exhibiting ever increasing boldness in his own fringe endorsements and involvements.
A Tree Known by Its Fruit
33 “Either make the tree good and its fruit good, or else make the tree bad and its fruit bad; for a tree is known by its fruit. 34 Brood of vipers! How can you, being evil, speak good things? For out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks. 35 A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things.
MAY 23RD 2018 ALBERT MOHLER DECLARED THE #METOO MOVEMENT IN THE CHURCH WAS THE “WRATH OF GOD POURED OUT-THE HUMILIATION OF THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION”. YET THE SBC ABUSE ADVOCATE/MEDIA STAR/ CONSULTANT/ AUTHOR / CONFERENCE SPEAKER AND HER HUSBAND HAVE BEEN A PART OF ALBERT MOHLER’S TEAM AT SBTS FOR OVER A DECADE.
Rev Thomas Littleton
January 14th 2023
This past week controversy arose over the MANY HATS that victims advocate Rachael Denhollander is currently WEARING in the ongoing SBC “Sex Abuse ” controversy, investigation and media circus. It seems that not only has Mrs. Denhollander been working for many Southern Baptist entities like The ERLC ( under Mohler protege’ Russell Moore at the time) but also for the Executive Committee, SBTS itself, various other entities like Lifeway (where one of the featured victims has worked as an executive) AND is now reported to be ACTUALLY running the SBC abuse HOTLINE.
O Yes and she works with the independent investigative firm Guidepost Solutions directly and with the various “Task Forces” which the SBC have established to coordinate the investigation and “implement ” its new policies.
MOHLER AND ACTIVISM IN THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION
Albert Mohler and his SBTS are deeply tied to the leading activist the SBC related to Racial issues, the use of Critical Race Theory , Intersectionality , The LGBTQ Thriving Revoice movment in the SBC and PCA. AND more recently it has come to light that Mohler has had a longstanding connection with the leading couple in sex abuse /#metoo/ #churchtoo JUSTICE advocacy.
SOME HISTORY OF SBTS KEY ACTIVIST :
1ST -Russell Moore who accused the SBC of rampant racism , sex abuse and the existence of a massive coverup of the above in the SBC,Accusations came via leaked letters leading to the current investigation and abuse crisis.Moore IS the most famed or infamous of Mohler’s proteges’ . Moore was educated, employed and in leadership at SBTS for more than 2 decades. Moore also helped launch the CRT filled MLK/50 event in April 2018 where he accused Southern Baptist of “worshipping Jim Crow”as Jesus.
2ND -Once CRT and Intersectionality were being mainstreamed as “useful tools with the Gospel” in the Southern Baptist it was Mohler who worked directly with his in house SBTS CRT activist on RACE to drive a program called “Removing of the Stain of Racism from the SBC”. Those SBTS trained and employed activist included Curtis Wood, Matt Hall & Jarvis Williams. These same resident SBTS activist were part of the 2017 SBTS racial history investigation and purge as well as the 2019 Resolutions Committee who altered a submitted resolution ( # 9) to condemn CRT and Intersectionality in the SBC into an affirmation of CRT and Intersectionality.
(The panel, which was hosted at the SBC Cooperative Program stage, featured R. Albert Mohler Jr., Kevin Jones, Matthew J. Hall, and Curtis Woods. The panel was moderated by Jarvis J. Williams, associate professor of New Testament interpretation at Southern Seminary.)
3RD – Nate Collins founder of Revoice LGBTQ Thriving in the SBC ( which ALSO DEEPLY IMPACTED THE PCA) was a student, a Garrett Fellow AND taught New Testament at SBTS. Collins resided at SBTS for a period of 14 1/2 years obtaining 2 degrees and asserting in his dissertation for SBTS that the use of “Virgin ” proves the existence of a “third gender identification ” in the New Testament. Collin’s SBTS academic studies and papers and his book “All But Invisible” centered around Feminine,Gender and Queer Theories and Feminist Theology. Revoice is a movement in intersectionality “at the intersection of faith and sexuality”. Collins also presented some of his SBTS sexuality papers at ETS.
4TH- Deeply concerning is the decade PLUS history of Jacob and Rachael Denhollander at Albert Mohler’s SBTS and the ongoing efforts of the “Sex Abuse / #churchtoo scandals to force investigations, lawsuits, the coalition of victims, settlements AND to enforce compliance of Diversity Equity and Inclusion in the nations largest Protestant Denomination the Southern Baptist Convention. As the reader can determine below the use of,Jacob Denhollanders SBTS academic career and academic focus look to have been used to furthered the cause of the #churchtoo in the SBC. Is this “a Gospel issue”? No-nuanced critical theory and Feminist Theology narrative is not the Gospel.
THE DENHOLLANDER REPUTATION
There is no denying Rachael Denhollander’s acclaim :
“Rachael Denhollander is an American lawyer and former gymnast. She was the first woman to publicly accuse Larry Nassar, the former Michigan state University and USA Gymnastics doctor, of sexual assault. Denhollander is 2018 Glamour Woman of the Year and was included in Time magazine’s 100 Most Influential People of 2018. She is the recipient of the 2021 Abraham Kuyper Prize for Excellence in Reformed Theology and Public Life.”
“Denhollander was the last to speak during both of Nassar’s sentencing hearings. In asking the judges to impose the maximum sentence on Nassar, Denhollander said, “How much is a little girl worth?”[She answered her own question: “These victims are worth everything … I plead with you to impose the maximum sentence under the plea agreement because everything is what these survivors are worth.”In Ingham County, Judge Rosemarie Aquilina said Denhollander “built an army of survivors”[and called her “a five-star general.”[Aquilina also said Denhollander was “the bravest person I have ever had in my courtroom.”
THE ISSUE OF ABUSE IN THE CHURCH
QUESTIONS TO PONDER- Is the use of the “5 star general” who assembled an “Army of the Abused ” in the Nassar case- now heading the same KIND of effort among Southern Baptist? If so, as it appears, is this being done right out of its Flagship Seminary SBTS?Could this reality be just a matter of happenstance? Can Baptist assume that these associations JUST SO HAPPENED to develop and become weaponized against the church in the same way the Nassar case developed- by some of the same people- all within Albert Mohler’s SBTS circles?
VALID ABUSE AND COVERUPS
There is no doubt the church has had a history of both abuse and problems with how abuse is handled. Yet evidence is compelling that something more was going on -at least in the Southern Baptist sudden visitation of the issue in a highly publicised and ongoing controversy filled with accusations of coverup, corruption and collusion.
But COMPELLING and disturbing appearance EXIST of some high level COLLUDING of a different sort- at the flagship SBC seminary.
WE HAVE TO ASK -WAS “GOD’S WRATH BEING POURED OUT ON THE SBC” OR WAS THE #CHURCHTOO VISITATION A COORDINATED EFFORT FROM SBTS?
@JJ_Denhollander “I am extremely grateful to see these words from the president of my school, albertmohler. There is much more work to do and many more hard conversations to be had @R_Denhollander and I hope to be helpful in anyway we can.”
FROM THE MOHLER “WRATH OF GOD ” ON THE SBC ARTICLE
“America’s largest evangelical denomination has been in the headlines day after day. The SBC is in the midst of its own horrifying #MeToo moment.”
“At one of our seminaries, controversy has centered on a president (now former president) whose sermon illustration from years ago included advice that a battered wife remain in the home and the marriage in hope of the conversion of her abusive husband. Other comments represented the objectification of a teenage girl. The issues only grew more urgent with the sense that the dated statements represented ongoing advice and counsel.”
“But the issues are far deeper and wider.”
MOHLER DISCUSSED HAVING BROUGHT IN THE DENHOLLANDERS TO HANDLE SBTS OWN SEX ABUSE CASE (S)
Statement from R. Albert Mohler Jr. on Sovereign Grace Churches
R. Albert Mohler, Jr. — February 15, 2019
“When this issue resurfaced a year ago, I was made painfully aware of my serious mistakes. I immediately urged that an independent investigation be conducted and agreed that CJ (Mahaney) needed to step down from public ministry until that took place. This resulted in a severing of all personal and ministry ties, and I have had no relationship with CJ or SGC since that time.”
“I was deeply affected by the documentation offered by Rachael Denhollander. I met with Jacob and Rachael soon after she released the documentation and I have deeply appreciated her counsel. That first conversation fundamentally changed my understanding of this issue.”
IN HIS OWN WORDS- MOHLER TURNED TO THE DENHOLLANDERS FOR HELP. & HE ENCOURAGES THE “PRESSURE” TO BE MAINTAINED !
“I should have sought advice and counsel of agencies and authorities and experts who were even then on the front lines of dealing with these kinds of allegations.”
“Some will question whether the force of public pressure explains the timing of my statement and its public nature. In all candor, this pressure is no doubt part of that explanation. That fact should serve to encourage survivors and their advocates to maintain such pressure.”
THE DENHOLLANDERS AND SBTS -SOME HISTORY :
According to Jacob the couple have been at SBTS for over a decade
Photo from Jacob Denhollander social media of his SBTS graduation
“After 11 years, two degrees, and a lot of life, my time @SBTS is over. Forever grateful to these professors for the way I have grown as a scholar and as a man. It’s a bittersweet day as I move on to finish my PhD elsewhere, but part of me will always be at Southern.”
CONSIDER THE DECADE PLUS OF THE DENHOLLANDERS PRESENCE AT SBTS AND JACOB DENHOLLANDER’S WORK THERE:
Jacobs published academic papers at SBTS date back to at least 2015 confirming that his work at SBTS has been focuses on abuse and reconciling things like “Feminist Theology ” and its hatred of the atonement with the Gospel. His other public academic studies appear to have been focused on Abuse as well. So since a least 2015 – WHILE the Nassar case was being prosecuted and Rachael Denhollander has played a major role developing that case and become known as “a five star general” – “assembling and army of victims” She and her husband have been at Albert Mohler’s SBTS seminary focusing on Sex Abuse from a theological framework.
As manager of the SBC Hotline for Guidepost Solutions and working directly with multiple other SBC entities in multiple capacities “The General ” not only looks to be wearing too many hats but positioned to assemble a new army for the assault on the Southern Baptist Convedntion.
The history of Feminist Theology is Anti- Gospel and Anti- Family and Anti- conventional Conservative Theology . It is certainly against the Baptist Faith and Message. Feminists theologians INSIST that theology has been developed not just by males, but by males within a patriarchal culture in a patriarchal church which is rife with systemic abuse of women by men who subordinate and exploit them.
Feminist Theology resist the use of male pronouns for God – Assaults the role of women in the home and the biblical call for women to submit to their husbands. Feminist theology calls the Nuclear Family and IDOL which must be taken down and replaced. Feminine Theology seeks to subvert and usurp the role of men in leadership which is specifically counter to the Apostle Paul’s inspired instructions for family and church life.
Feminist Theology seeks to deconstruct ALL Biblical concepts of family and church and leadership -promotes the demands for all churches to ordain women in senior leadership and EVEN goes so far as to attempt to feminize God.
THE PROBLEMS WITH THESE ASSERTIONS AND ASSUMPTIONS VS THE GOSPEL OF REPENTANCE AND FORGIVENESS ARE GLARING AND LEGION.
Yet at SBTS Jacob Denhollander appears to have been commissioned or allowed to dedicate his academic pursuits and papers, obtaining his degrees, to erasing or merging the polar opposites of feminist theology and the Gospel /Good News and the Great Commission which once was said to occupied Southern Baptist life and ministry.
Justice for Victims is the new gospel !
“The #MeToo moment has come to American evangelicals. This moment has come to some of my friends and brothers in Christ. This moment has come to me, and I am called to deal with it as a Christian, as a minister of the Gospel, as a seminary and college president, and as a public leader. I pray that I will lead rightly.” …”This is just a foretaste of the wrath of God poured out. This moment requires the very best of us. The Southern Baptist Convention is on trial and our public credibility is at stake. May God have mercy on us all.” Albert Mohler .
MOHLER PARTNER AT THE GOSPEL COALITION RECENTLY OFFERED HIGH PRAISE FOR THE DENHOLLANDERATONEMENT NARRATIVE.
(NOTE THIS WAS SENT BY A READER WHO HAD NOTED THE KELLER -DENHOLLANDER TWITTER EXCHANGE ON JANUARY 1ST 2022 )
“A bit surprised that the Denhollander essay–which advocates for abuse victims but also affirms substitutionary atonement as a way to do so–has gotten so little discussion. (I hope that means everyone agrees with it!) I”m grateful for the Denholladers’ work and ministry.”
““The example of God at the cross inverts power dynamics at play in oppression and abuse.” – Jacob and Rachael Denhollander in ““Justice: The Foundation of a Christian Approach to Abuse”
IN 2018 BOTH JACOB AND RACHAEL PRESENTED AN SBTS PAPER ON ABUSE JUSTICE AT THE 70TH ANNUAL EVANGELICAL THEOLOGICAL SOCIETY MEETINGS IN DENVER COLORADO
“JUSTICE: THE FOUNDATION OF A CHRISTIAN APPROACH TO ABUSE”
“In this paper, we seek to establish that evangelicals possess the theological truths needed to bring comfort, hope and truth to survivors of abuse, predicated on a proper understanding of justice as seen in the atonement and character of the Triune God. We examine the claim that penal, substitutionary understandings of the atonement are pictures of abuse and argue that, properly understood, these understandings of the atonement instead provide a basis for rejecting the power dynamics that underlay all forms of abuse.”
SBTS , Albert Mohler and the Denhollanders have played a significant role in the development of the ideology of “humiliation” , contrition and JUSTICE in the SBC abuse scandal and response. AGAIN -Jacob has been able to use his academic studies and papers to reconcile the anti gospel- anti forgiveness – pro prosecution and pro justice of FEMINIST THEOLOGY with the Southern Baptist once Biblical view of repentance , forgiveness, and RESTORATION. Does this mean these biblical ideals must take a back seat to JUSTICE?
MOHLER AND HIS DISCIPLES SHOW UP REPEATEDLY IN THE SBC ABUSE ISSUE.
Mohler disciple Russell Moore immediately commissioned Rachael Denhollander to help with his “Caring Well ” brand building in the ERLC/ SBC response to sex abuse.
Russell Moore and Denhollander at ERLC’s Caring well Conference -abuse “response “
Moore also echoed Mohler’s “Wrath of God “in 2022
This Is the Southern Baptist Apocalypse
“The abuse investigation has uncovered more evil than even I imagined.”
MOHLER HAD PREVIOUSLY FEATURED THE “GOSPEL DRIVEN TESTIMONY” OF DENHOLLANDER AT THE NASSAR SENTENCING IN THE BRIEFING .
“An amazing testimony to the gospel, to the reality of good and evil, and to Christian truth in a Michigan courtroom” THE BRIEFING -THURSDAY, JAN. 25, 2018
(Perhaps HERE Mohler is SKILLFULLY putting TO USE the reconciled NARRATIVE merging Feminist Theologies demand for JUSTICE and prosecution to the fullest extent of the law with a “Gospel Testimony” by Rachael Denhollander. The reader can determine that for themselves )
MOHLER IN THE BRIEFING IN HIGH PRAISE OF THE COUPLE WHO HAVE MADE THIER HOME IN HIS SBTS CIRCLES AS THE NASSAR CASE HAS UNFOLDED. ODD-HE NEVER MENTIONS THAT FACT.
TWO IMPORTANT EXCERPTS AND THE FULL MOHLER STATEMENT ON MRS. DENHOLLANDER’S “GOSPEL TESTIMONY IN THE COURTROOM:
“Rachael Denhollander. In her statement concerning the sentencing of Dr. Nassar, she not only spoke eloquently from the deep reservoirs of a Christian worldview, but she spoke directly to the doctor with the power of the Christian gospel.”
MOHLER ASSERTS THE DEEP CHRISTIAN WORLDVIEW & GOSPEL REFLECTED – THEN
“Those are words very difficult to hear, very difficult to read, very difficult to say. They are difficult words we need to hear, and of course they are difficult words that have the ring and the authenticity of biblical truth. This is the kind of argument that can only emerge from Christian conviction and from the Christian biblical worldview. The references here to good and evil, to right and wrong, to a straight line of judgment, most importantly the references to sin and guilt, the necessity of repentance and the substitutionary atonement of Christ and the promise of salvation, all of this only makes sense, it is only coherent if everything revealed in the Scripture is true.”
“BIBLICAL WORLD VIEW- CHRISTIAN CONVICTION- & SUBSTITUTIONARY ATONEMENT “
Again the Jacob Denhollader 2015 paper reconciling Feminist Theology with the Gospel primary task is to deal with feminist theologies hatred for Penal Substitutionary Atonement (PSA).
Excerpt :Denhollander on Penal Substitutionary Atonement (PSA)
“Rita Nakashima Brock famously labelled any model of atonement in which Jesus is subjected to punishment to satisfy God as “cosmic child abuse” – a sobering and disturbing claim that has embedded itself in contemporary discussions about the atonement and has been accepted by many theologians as necessitating a careful re-formulation, if not outright rejection of, traditional models of atonement. Penal Substitutionary Atonement (PSA), with its emphasis on the wrath of God against sin and the justification of sinners through the substitutionary death of Jesus on the cross, is especially criticized as modeling abuse and making a virtue of suffering.”
” Most defenses of PSA against this characterization focus on the way feminists have misunderstood or caricaturized PSA, and seek to demonstrate that Christ’s substitutionary death, rightly understood, does not explicitly or implicitly encourage abuse. While useful, I intend to go beyond a mere defense of the atonement and demonstrate that far from condoning abuse, a properly Trinitarian articulation of PSA can be used to address the problem of abuse by radically confronting the sinful view of authority and power that always lies behind abuse.”
MOHLER EVEN GETS IN HER COMING BOOK TITLE
“She then asked the question,”
“how much is a little girl worth?”
FULL COMMENTS BY MOHLER IN PRAISE OF DENHOLLANDER “GOSPEL”.
“The woman whose accusations broke the story and eventually broke the doctor was a young woman by the name now of Rachael Denhollander. In her statement concerning the sentencing of Dr. Nassar, she not only spoke eloquently from the deep reservoirs of a Christian worldview, but she spoke directly to the doctor with the power of the Christian gospel. The words of this young woman bear our close attention. The doctor as he was being sentenced was carrying a Bible visibly. That was considered by many of the victims to be manipulative with the doctor effectively using the Bible as a prop in order to engender sympathy during his sentencing hearing. But Mrs. Denhollander pointed to the Bible that Dr. Nassar had, and then she said bravely,”
“If you have read the Bible you carry, you know the definition of sacrificial love portrayed is of God himself loving so sacrificially that he gave up everything to pay a penalty for the sin he did not commit. By his grace, I, too, choose to love this way.”
“Later referencing the Bible again, she spoke of absolute truth and the objective reality of right and wrong. She said and I quote,”
“the Bible you carry says it is better for a stone to be thrown around your neck and you throw into a lake than for you to make even one child stumble. And you have damaged hundreds. The Bible,” she said conveys the message of, “final judgment where all of God’s wrath and eternal terror is poured out on men like you. Should,” she said, “you ever reach the point of truly facing what you have done, the guilt will be crushing. And that is what makes the gospel of Christ so sweet. Because it extends grace and hope and mercy where none should be found. And it will be there for you.”
“I pray you experience the soul crushing weight of guilt so you may someday experience true repentance and true forgiveness from God, which you need far more than forgiveness from me,” she said though she bravely continued, “though I extend that to you as well.”
“Speaking again of the reality of right and wrong of evil and good, she said,”
“Larry, I can call what you did evil and wicked because it was. And I know it was evil and wicked because the straight line exists. The straight line is not measured based on your perception or anyone else’s perception, and this means I can speak the truth about my abuse without minimization or mitigation. And I can call it evil because I know what goodness is. And this is why I pity you. Because when a person loses the ability to define good and evil, when they cannot define evil, they can no longer define and enjoy what is truly good. When a person can harm another human being, especially a child, without true guilt, they have lost the ability to truly love.”
“She continued by saying to the doctor,”
“Larry, you have shut yourself off from every truly beautiful and good thing in this world that could have and should have brought you joy and fulfillment, and I pity you for it. You could have had everything you pretended to be. Every woman who stood up here truly loved you as an innocent child, real genuine love for you, and it did not satisfy.”
“Then addressing the judge Mrs. Denhollander said,”
“I ask that you hand down a sentence that tells us that what was done to us matters, that we are known, we are worth everything, worth the greatest protection the law can offer, the greatest measure of justice available.”
She then asked the question,
“how much is a little girl worth?”
“Those are words very difficult to hear, very difficult to read, very difficult to say. They are difficult words we need to hear, and of course they are difficult words that have the ring and the authenticity of biblical truth. This is the kind of argument that can only emerge from Christian conviction and from the Christian biblical worldview. The references here to good and evil, to right and wrong, to a straight line of judgment, most importantly the references to sin and guilt, the necessity of repentance and the substitutionary atonement of Christ and the promise of salvation, all of this only makes sense, it is only coherent if everything revealed in the Scripture is true. And as we consider this story that is now so much a part of the American attention and conversation today, we need to be thankful as this judge was thankful for young women who were brave enough to accuse this doctor so esteemed and respected throughout the Olympic community of what he had done and to stay by their story and to make it stick consistently testifying in order to bring about not only a criminal conviction but the end to this kind of abuse that endangered so many others.”
“Then addressing the first of those young women to speak up Rachel Denhollander, the judge said,”
“You started the tidal wave. You made all of this happen. You made all of these voices matter. Your sister survivors and I thank you. You are the bravest person I have ever had in my courtroom.”
“But what so many in the world missed is that the moral clarity that was so evident in that courtroom yesterday cannot really emerge from a secular worldview. It can only emerge from a biblical worldview. And yesterday it wasn’t just the witness to good and evil that appeared. In the voice of Rachel Denhollander, there was a powerful witness to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the Gospel that speaks so honestly about sin, and the Gospel that so honestly promises in Christ salvation from sin.”
ACCORDING TO THE WIFE OF THE FIRST INVESTIGATIVE SBC TASK FORCE LEADER ALBERT MOHLER MADE A SURPRISE VISIT TO THEIR NC CHURCH BEFORE THE FIRST TASK FORCE WAS FINALIZED .
“Distinguished visitor this morning at @biltmore. Unassuming, unannounced, thus uncelebrated, until he walked up to @BruceFrank1 in the lobby after service with kindness and encouragement. Honored to have@albertmohler worship with us this reformation day.” OCTOBER 31ST 2021
Albert Mohler and SBTS ,along with other individuals and entities in the SBTS and Guidepost Solutions are the target of a lawsuit themselves in the pushback from the SBC #churchtoo abuse “investigation “.
ARE OTHERS SEEING THE PROBLEMS WITH HOW THE SBC HAVE HANDLED #CHURCHTOO MOVEMENT?
IT APPEARS SO –
MOBILE, Ala. (BP) – “A former Southern Baptist seminary professor and his wife have filed suit against the SBC and 10 other individuals and entities connected to the SBC, including Jennifer Lyell and Guidepost Solutions.”
“In a filing made in the Mobile, Ala., Circuit Court, David and Mary Sills allege “defamation, conspiracy, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligence, and wantonness concerning untrue claims of sexual abuse” initiated by Jennifer Lyell.”
Guidepost Solutions, a third-party investigative firm secured in 2021 by the Sexual Abuse Task Force
“It also accuses the SBC, Lifeway, Jennifer Lyell, Eric Geiger, the EC, Ed Litton, Willie McLaurin, Rolland Slade, SBTS and Mohler of “making an example out of SBC member and employee David Sills who, without controversy, had admitted to an affair with Lyell and willingly accepted the SBC requirement that he depart from his position at the Seminary.”
“The suit claims these parties “saw an opportunity to improve the appearance and reputation of (the) SBC’s handling of abuse cases, long under fire, even though there had not been any legitimate and proper investigation into the allegations, nor was Dr. Sills adequately informed of the specific nature and extent of accusations made by Lyell.”
WHAT THE GOSPEL- THE CHURCH AND THE CHRISTIAN FAITH ARE NOT !!!
The Christian , nuclear family is NOT an IDOL as Feminist Theology, Russell Moore , Nate Collins Sam Allberry and other Baptist activist assert and does not need to be “replaced by an inclusive church as the family”
Church is the Body of Christ and the assembly of the first born – who have been forgiven- and have forgiven those who sin against them.It is not an assembly of victims seeking justice. Instead they are justified by the Blood of Christ – for all have sinned against the offended party which in the true Gospel is God.
The Gospel is the Good News that God was in Christ reconciling the world to Himself in His Son Jesus and that Good News does not need useful tools from the Frankfurt School or seminary students devoting time and study and entire careers to uniting critical theory narratives with Bible verses and theological concepts to form a new gospel. How is this known? Because such narratives are not the the Gospel at all.
Atonement is a sacred work within the HOLY realm of Triune God and impacts mankind only in that God has opened the doors for mankind to reap its bountiful mercy and taste of eternal life…knowing the forgiveness of sin by it. It has no need of nuance nor refining and adaptation for application in a modern society or among its activist “causes”.
Forgiveness is a non option for the Christian based on having been forgiven and on laying down ones own life for others as Jesus has laid down His life for all sinners. The Gospels and Forgiveness serve God’s JUSTICE – not ours and Vengeance belongs to Him alone. He will repay. The offer of forgiveness and the choice to show mercy are God’s and we are called to forgive as He forgives based on the Blood of Jesus.
There is no room for demands for Justice at the foot of the cross.
Some biblical food for thought :
8 “Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. 9 In this manner, therefore, pray:
Our Father in heaven, Hallowed be Your name. 10 Your kingdom come. Your will be done On earth as it is in heaven. 11 Give us this day our daily bread. 12 And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors. 13 And do not lead us into temptation, But deliver us from the evil one. [For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.
14 “For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. 15 But if you do not forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”
The Parable of the Unforgiving Servant
21 Then Peter came to Him and said, “Lord, how often shall my brother sin against me, and I forgive him? Up to seven times?”
22 Jesus said to him, “I do not say to you, up to seven times, but up to seventy times seven. 23 Therefore the kingdom of heaven is like a certain king who wanted to settle accounts with his servants. 24 And when he had begun to settle accounts, one was brought to him who owed him ten thousand talents. 25 But as he was not able to pay, his master commanded that he be sold, with his wife and children and all that he had, and that payment be made. 26 The servant therefore fell down before him, saying, ‘Master, have patience with me, and I will pay you all.’ 27 Then the master of that servant was moved with compassion, released him, and forgave him the debt.
28 “But that servant went out and found one of his fellow servants who owed him a hundred denarii; and he laid hands on him and took him by the throat, saying, ‘Pay me what you owe!’ 29 So his fellow servant fell down [e]at his feet and begged him, saying, ‘Have patience with me, and I will pay you [f]all.’ 30 And he would not, but went and threw him into prison till he should pay the debt. 31 So when his fellow servants saw what had been done, they were very grieved, and came and told their master all that had been done. 32 Then his master, after he had called him, said to him, ‘You wicked servant! I forgave you all that debt because you begged me. 33 Should you not also have had compassion on your fellow servant, just as I had pity on you?’ 34 And his master was angry, and delivered him to the torturers until he should pay all that was due to him.
Love Your Enemies
27 “But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, 28 bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. 29 To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either. 30 Give to everyone who asks of you. And from him who takes away your goods do not ask them back. 31 And just as you want men to do to you, you also do to them likewise.
32 “But if you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do good to those who do good to you, what credit is that to you? For even sinners do the same. 34 And if you lend to those from whom you hope to receive back, what credit is that to you? For even sinners lend to sinners to receive as much back. 35 But love your enemies, do good, and lend, [d]hoping for nothing in return; and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High. For He is kind to the unthankful and evil. 36 Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.
Luke 23:34-36New King James Version
34 [a]Then Jesus said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do.”
And they divided His garments and cast lots. 35 And the people stood looking on. But even the rulers with them sneered, saying, “He saved others; let Him save Himself if He is the Christ, the chosen of God.”
36 The soldiers also mocked Him…..
James 2:13-15New King James Version
13 For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.
Abuse of any kind and all kinds cries out for justice like the blood of Able from the ground after being murdered by his own brother . Abuse that is unlawful in mans courts and the prosecution and penalty for it are to be settled in mans courts NOT in the church lead by members with movements of problematic origin and grinding out other agendas in and against the church.
When the church embraces the role of dispensing JUSTICE over race or abuse or sexuality or identity or any number of social change causes – is has lost its vision and eternal purpose.
Mercy is the message of the Cross against the backdrop of mans rejection of and hatred toward God and God’s pending judgement on all who do wickedly and love a lie. Suspended in the convergence God’s TRUTH , of sin and wrath and God’s Divine Judgement and the desperate inability of man to save himself- God provided Himself a Lamb to take away the sins of the World. THIS dear friends is the Gospel-
The blow due to us- all of US -abused and abusers and activist and indifferent – fell on HIM.
Psalm 85:10New King James Version
10 Mercy and truth have met together; Righteousness and peace have kissed.
SIGNIFICANT NUMBERS OF SOUTHERN BAPTIST LEADERSHIP HAVE BEEN PLAYING A LONG GAME TO TRANSFORM THEIR MOVEMENT. LIKE ALINSKY TRAINED RADICALS THESE MEN AND WOMEN ARE NOT LETTING THE SEX ABUSE CRISIS GO TO WASTE.
State , corporate and soon CHURCH mandated DE&I transformation is a form of Cultural Cannibalism and it is coming soon to every aspect of your life- including your FAITH.
Rev Thomas Littleton
In 2018 the perfect storm for progressives feminist and minority status activist was visited upon the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) bearing the title #MeToo. Soon the name morphed into the #churchtoo movement and from that moment forward the SBC has been locked into a deadly coerced and forced march toward Diversity Equity & Inclusion Compliance. Like altering the ingredients in an old family recipe -#MeToo driven DE&I uses Women because they are the largest minority group . But the movement template then expands the issues to cover race and sexual orientation , gender identity, disabled , and the gamut of finely honed critical theory narratives , professional victims and highly funded advocacy groups. Here is what that means-looks and smells like for Christians and the Church. Keep in mind that as the largest Protestant denomination /movement in America (the SBC) goes- so goes the church in America .
First the need for the SBC “Investigation ” is always blamed on the SBC messengers at the annual conventions resulting from manipulated voting but make no mistake ,from every indicator -the use of the “Sex Abuse Scandal Investigation, which is now a massive scandal of its own, is a top down- inside -agenda driven bit of theater which has little or nothing to do with actual victims of abuse.
How the narrative goes in the media “The group tasked by the members ( yep so this is the members?…not really) of the Southern Baptist Convention with creating policies to address sexual abuse within the denomination has shared an update on their work and reaffirmed their commitment to “helping churches prevent sexual abuse and minister well to abuse survivors.”
(NOTE: No doubt abuse has taken place and some of it has been covered up for decades by the good ole boy network and 1tth commandment among some Baptist. This abuse and corruption includes “Big Face Baptist” and small church staffers and victims including women and children. The hard reality is that the almost monthly news of the next child abuser arrested in a church is largely ignored in the SBC / Guidepost Solutions “Investigation” in favor of high profile cases involving women who are becoming part of the united victim coalition of activist pushing DE&I as the answer. The fact that many of the arrest of abusers points to the problem that pedophile and homosexual abuse has been a significant part of the problem..the impression is that such abuse does not seem to fit the goals of the crisis. DE&I outcomes are not designed to address pedophilia and would never target LGBTQ for investigations . It is quiet the opposite .Make no mistake – victims mean little in the outcome objectives once “investigations” turn to feed political parasites and are drivers of “social change” in the “host”institution . That is what the SBC crisis looks to have been from the start. The SBC abuse investigation set to become a feeding frenzy for bottom feeders and the platform for victory laps by selected victims and inside religious deconstructionist . )
SBC HISTORY AND INVESTIGATION THE VICTIMHOOD EMPOWERED
SBC SECOND TASK FORCE IN AS MANY YEARS ISSUES AN UPDATE
Task Force Update (Dec ‘22)
“The Abuse Reform Implementation Task Force met Monday, December 12, in Nashville to continue to work on identifying and implementing reform measures as instructed by the Messengers at the 2022 SBC Annual Meeting in Anaheim. In our last update, the ARITF established three priorities for the first phase of its work:”
The retaining of an individual or firm who is qualified and trauma-informed to receive reports of abuse or mishandling of abuse, determine the proper entity, association or church to respond to that report, and communicate this report to the relevant parties.
The creation of the Ministry Check database, which will house the names of those credibly accused of sexual abuse in order to ensure thorough information flow throughout the Convention and better resource churches to protect their congregations.
Assisting the Credentials Committee in retaining a qualified firm to assist them in their processes and in performing factual inquiries related to sexual abuse. As of right now, more than 200 referrals have been made to the Credentials Committee related to SBC churches and it is imperative that we equip and resource our CC members to respond to these reports.”
“At present, the ARITF has held three in-person meetings and continued to work diligently between meetings to advance the priority items identified above. This work has included numerous meetings and interviews with SBC leaders, SBC Credentials Committee members and personnel, and leading experts in investigations, abuse prevention and response, and cyber and technological security. “
“As a result, the ARITF has made progress toward the items specified above. In addition, these efforts have also allowed the ARITF to identify specific processes and reform measures which remain in need of either creation or revision. Additionally, through this work the ARITF has also identified numerous outside groups that may provide needed assistance for SBC churches and entities in their efforts to prevent and respond to instances of sexual abuse.”
Pertaining to the priority items, the ARITF will continue to consider the best long-term option for the SBC to receive reports of abuse or mishandling of abuse. At this time, the ARITF with the assistance of key SBC leaders has agreed to maintain the hotline and email notification system to receive and document these reports. The ARITF has also worked diligently to determine the specific nature and functions of the Ministry Check database and to identify a capable and qualified database administrator. The ARITF continues to work closely with the Credentials Committee to address these and other issues. Finally, as indicated above, the ARITF has met with multiple third-parties to identify and ultimately make recommendations to the Credentials Committee and SBC churches and entities with potential companies or firms capable of performing investigations or inquiries as needed.”
“As we continue our own work, the ARITF wishes to affirm the efforts of so many of our State Conventions to help set standards for churches and provide resources for churches to prevent abuse and care for survivors. These state-level and local reforms are critical for creating a convention-wide culture of prevention and care.”
THE INVESTIGATION THE FIRMS AND GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS
“Vision Statement -A mosaic of diversity and innovation.”
SBC -GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS INVESTIGATION + REPORT
In response to requests, the SBC Executive Committee has released the list of pastors and other church-affiliated personnel accused of sexual abuse. This 205-page database was made public May 26, 2022. It includes more than 700 entries from cases that largely span from 2000 to 2019.
On September 9, 2021, the Task Force announced that Guidepost Solutions was retained to conduct the independent assessment and investigation regarding the Executive Committee of the SBC, as commissioned by the Messengers of the Convention at the 2021 SBC annual meeting. Pursuant to the Letter of Engagement, Guidepost’s mandate is as follows:
Specifically, and as directed by the SBC Motion, Guidepost investigated:
Allegations of abuse by Executive Committee members
Mishandling of abuse allegations by Executive Committee members between January 1, 2000, to June 14, 2021
Allegations of mistreatment of sexual abuse victims by Executive Committee members from January 1, 2000, to June 14, 2021
Patterns of intimidation of sexual abuse victims or advocates from January 1, 2000, to June 14, 2021
Resistance to sexual abuse reform initiatives from January 1, 2000, to June 14, 2021
In addition, Guidepost performed an audit of the procedures and actions of the Credentials Committee after its formation in mid-June 2019, using best standards and practices designed to ensure accountability, transparency, and care for the wellbeing of survivors of sexual abuse.
Additional information regarding the Task Force and the scope of the investigation can be found here.
A press release announcing the retention of Guidepost can be found here.
GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS DE&I CULTUREAND CURRENT SCANDAL OF THEIR OWN.
Guidepost Solutions ,armed with 5 allied law firms ALL DEEPLY COMMITTED TO DE&I CULTURAL TRANSFORMATION among clients , were hired to “Investigate the SBC Sex Abuse” The DOJ , where many Guidepost Solutions employees have worked in the past launched its own investigation in August 2022.
For MORE on Guidepost DE&I tainted investigation read here “
GUIDEPOST SOLUTIONS IS NOW BEING SUED FOR THE BOTCHED INVESTIGATION
Guidepost is now named in a massive lawsuit along with past and present SBC Presidents, entity heads, several entities, seminaries, their heads AND the SBC publishing arm Lifeway accusing those named of using what some believe to be an 8 year consensual affair that might not have happened as to target the accused male- a now fired SBTS professor – as a “SCAPEGOAT” in the published investigation. It is stated that Guidepost nor its investigators even interviewed the accused before centering much of it’s investigation results around this case since it involved a high ranking SBC female executive. Yes SEEDY business, Apologies .
More here on the lawsuit if needed:
( From Christianity Today coverage of the story )
“David Sills was repentant and obedient to the rules of the SBC,” the complaint alleges. “Defendants saw him as an easy target; a bona fide scapegoat.”
“The complaint names Southern seminary and Mohler, as well as the SBC’s Executive Committee, SBC President Bart Barber, and his predecessor Ed Litton as defendants, along with several other leaders. Also named as a defendant is Lifeway Christian Resources, a research and publishing arm of the SBC, and Guidepost Solutions.”
“It also names Jennifer Lyell, a former seminarian and vice president for Lifeway, who has repeatedly alleged that Sills was abusive, an allegation Mohler has also made on social media and in an interview for a documentary about the denomination’s response to its sexual abuse crisis.”
“Guidepost “perpetuated a false narrative in a Report, in exchange for payment and in concert with Defendants,” all of which ruined Sill’s reputation and labeled him as an abuser, according to the complaint.”
“Guidepost declined to comment, as did Lyell. The SBC Executive Committee and several other SBC leaders did not immediately respond to requests for comment.”
WHAT DE&I LOOKS LIKE IN CORPORATE CULTURE
“For anyone working in a large corporation ,a university of a government agency at any level since the BLM riots of 2020 the DE&I metrics , training and cultural transformation tactics are very familiar. But imagine THESE tactics and “VALUES” being applied to and in the church of the lining God and missions organizations both global and domestic and even in disaster relief efforts partnering with FEMA and REd Cross. That is already happening. “
PUBLIC UTILITY MUST PLAY TO BOTH DE&I CULTURE CHANGE & CLIMATE CHANGE
Remember that public utility companies are both mandated political climate policy requirements and guaranteed profits by legislative acts. These companies in turn use hundreds of millions in those profits extracted from the public to force DE&I on their employees, their families, corporate scholarships, education , political lobbying and local communities where their grants are much sought after. This makes for a never ending-circular- form on insanity for progressivism feeding on itself at public expense to the detriment of the local community with the ever raising bar of expectations for compliance.
A LOOK AT DE&I IN SOUTHERN COMPANY A UTILITY COMPANY IN THE SOUTHEAST.
“Moving to Equity”
“For years, striving toward equity has been part of Southern Company’s focus on building a healthy company and culture. We work diligently to prevent inequity in our company and to ensure a fair and just culture across the entire organization. We are committed to an equitable and inclusive workplace that mirrors the diverse communities we serve. We are proud of our ongoing pledge to foster racial justice and of our place as a role model among companies forging social change.”
“Recently, we have refocused our efforts toward a more holistic goal of diversity, equity and inclusion, helping to ensure all groups are welcomed, well represented, engaged and fairly treated throughout the organization. Following events in 2020 highlighting racial injustice in our society, we published Moving to Racial Equity, a complete framework which confirms our collective commitment to this topic. In addition, in 2021 we published a Transformation Report updating stakeholders on our progress toward key goals.”
Key efforts and commitments include:
Talent: “committing to a diverse, equitable and inclusive workplace to better serve our customers and communities; increasing and improving outreach, recruitment, hiring and retention of diverse groups at all levels of the workforce; ensuring equity in leadership development programs; and seeking diverse candidate slates for all positions, including management roles.
Culture: promoting an actively anti-racist culture to ensure that all groups, especially historically underrepresented and marginalized groups, are well-represented, included and fairly treated within all levels of the organization, and that everyone feels welcomed, valued and respected.
Community: committing $225 million over five years to advance racial equity and social justice in our communities with a focus on criminal justice, economic empowerment, the advancement of educational equality and energy justice.
Political Engagement: advocating for racial equity through our political engagement, policy positions and ongoing public dialogues.
Suppliers: aiming to increase our minority business enterprise spend to 20% and total diverse spend to 30% by 2025, and committing to developing and doing business with more Black-owned businesses in our industry and communities.”
“Southern Company must hold itself accountable to the commitments and pledges it has made. To do this, we expect all employees across the Southern Company system to embrace these overarching racial equity pillars, commit to continuous personal education on the topic, engage in open dialogue with teammates and hold each other accountable for our success. We have also established a communication framework that firmly positions our racial equity and social justice efforts central to Our Values. We have engaged PwC to conduct an external audit of this initiative to uncover any high priority systemic issues and evaluate the identified metrics and key performance indicators as proxies for sustaining the desired behaviors and practices consistent with an inclusive company culture. Finally, we have pledged to review Our Values, evaluate additional diagnostics, further define our initiatives and develop an employee feedback loop to supplement the existing equity efforts underway.”
“DE&I Manager Aby Parsons and 2022 PRIDE Power president Justin Averette talk about what Pride means and building an inclusive workplace.”
SOUTHERN COMPANY PANDERS TO RADICAL HRC “EQUALITY INDEX”.
“For the second year in a row, Southern Company was named one of the Best Places to Work for LGBTQ Equality by the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), scoring 100 percent on its 2018 Corporate Equality Index.”
“HRC is the largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) civil rights organization in the U.S., representing more than 3 million members and supporters nationwide. HRC envisions a world where LGBTQ people are embraced as full members of society at home, at work and in every community.”
“Patrick Scarborough, compliance and technology services manager for Southern Company Services, has been a member and supporter of HRC for many years. Scarborough recently completed a two-year term on the organization’s board of directors and begins his second term with the same enthusiasm and drive to make meaningful change.”
SOUTHERN COMPANY FINANCIAL COMMITMENT TO DE&I
“We find ourselves at a critical moment in history when very necessary and important discussions about racism and racial injustice are taking place. The killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbrey, Rayshard Brooks and many other Black Americans awakened a growing recognition of the cumulative and compounded effects of systemic racial barriers and bias across institutions and society.” “At Southern Company, we are confronting these issues head-on. We have created the following framework to guide all our businesses as we engage in this process and to ensure a continued and coordinated focus on this work. This framework confirms our collective commitment to racial equity, which is a process of preventing racial disparities where they exist and ensuring fair access, opportunities and outcomes for everyone. It is the intentional and continual practice of evaluating and instituting policies, practices, systems and structures that prioritize measurable change in the lives of people of color.” “We are committed to be a role model among companies forging change.”
COMMUNITY “Southern Company and its Charitable Foundations are committing $200 million over five years to advance racial equity and social justice in our communities.”
NOTE- Again all these activities by a public utility are part of the new standard for corporate culture BUT the profits being poured into these DE&I push programs are from legislative act guaranteed profits from mandated spending driven not only by development and upgrading grids and infrastructure but also by “climate change” activism and “global goals” political policies.
This is Cultural Cannibalism .
AN OVERVIEW OF THE HOW DE&i IS FORCED ON CORPORATIONS AND ESCALATED SINCE BLM RIOTS OF 2020
FROM “JUST CAPITAL” AN ACTIVIST ORGANIZATIONS POLICING CORPORATE INVESTMENT IN DE&I
May 30, 2022
“In the two years since the killing of George Floyd and other Black Americans ignited a national reckoning with racial injustice, dozens of America’s largest companies have made unprecedented commitments to advancing racial equity in their workplaces and communities. Last year, we began tracking these commitments – as well as the concrete actions corporate America was beginning to take – as part of our 2021 Corporate Racial Equity Tracker. Below, we’ve updated our Tracker with the latest corporate performance data on these issues, tracking whether companies are making progress toward their goals, two years on.”
“With our recent survey research showing that 92% of Americans overall (up from 79% last year) and 95% of Black Americans believe it is important for companies to promote racial diversity and equity in the workplace, the demand for action on corporate commitments has only increased – especially considering that 68% of Americans, and 87% of Black Americans, agree companies have more work to do.”
“The 2022 Corporate Racial Equity Tracker offers an in-depth accounting of the commitments and actions announced by the 100 largest U.S. employers, through 23 metrics across six specific dimensions of racial equity:”

WHERE THE SBC “SEX ABUSE” AND RAMPANT RACISM ACCUSATIONS CAME FROM AND WHERE THEY ARE GOING IN THE CHURCH.
The SBC had the #MeToo movement pushing into its ranks by the Houston Chronicle and activist inside the SBC like Russell Moore, Beth Moore, and then incoming SBC President J D Greear in 2018. This trio formed a “Caring Well” event – hired professional victims /advocates like Rachael Denhollander -sold their books and began positioning the SBC with mechanisms for national overreach into local churches . This positioning has been spread out over 5 years and gone mostly undetected for what it means to local churches and individual believers.
By 2021 ,after being fired from his position as President of the SBC political lobby arm -the Ethics and Religious Liberties Commission for his divisive politics and constant shaming of Baptist voting habits, Russell Moore fired the DE&I torpedo via “leaked ” letters.
IN JUNE 2021 RUSSELL MOORE LAUNCHES ACCUSATION NARRATIVE TO MEDIA WHICH CAN ONLY BE ANSWERED BY DE&I CULTURE SHIFT AND MANDATED COMPLIANCE.
““The presenting issue here is that, first and foremost, of sexual abuse,” Moore wrote. “This Executive Committee, through their bylaws workgroup, ‘exonerated’ churches, in a spur-of-the-moment meeting, from serious charges of sexual abuse cover-up.”
HEADLINE FORM THE ATLANTIC JUNE 7 2021
“This is an earthquake,” a prominent Christian writer told me.”
“The publication of an extraordinary February 24, 2020, letter by Russell Moore, one of the most influential and respected evangelicals in America (and a friend), has shaken the Christian world.”
HOW IT PLAYED OUT AND HOW THE INVESTIGATION WILL END?
The SBC has set up TWO task force – one to lead the investigation and a second to direct”implementation ” of the investigations “report” and “recommendations” set out by the currently scandalized Guidepost Solutions and the first task force. Confused? The case might be made that the confusion is on purpose so as to provide distraction and cover from the looming DE&I compliance which saturates the work and culture of Guidepost and it legal partners. Compliance will come for the SBC like the emerging sun after a horrific storm and possibly be viewed as the answer to the years long trial and crisis.
SBC leaders, again making the appearance of leadership by the will of the messengers (SBC voting membership at the annual meetings ) in 2019 “Repurposed ” a “Standing Credentials Committee” which historically was tasked with verifying messenger credentials for voting ballots to represent their churches at the annual meetings, The Credentials Committee was morphed into a Reforms and Compliance enforcer agency now working with the Implementation Task Force and the Guidepost Report to review past issues of abuse and oversee handling of future reports and investigations. Meanwhile this “Credentials Committee ” has new found ability in the power to usurp the SBCs historic authority of the local church over ordination , cooperation , and participation in the Cooperative Programs of the SBC. In other words -SBC churches are no longer autonomous churches in “cooperation”. The nature of the SBC has been and will forever be changed by the internal handling of the Crisis brought about by activist leadership and furthered along by outside progressive /DE&I driven partners toward total compliance and utter culture change.
The fact it is important to understand is that the SBC and its entities have a significant and growing history of involvement in /with Government and other outside grant funding for “Refugee Care” education, health care, community development ,disaster relief and much more in Faith Based Partnerships with activist foundations and government agencies. The fact that Refugee Resettlement and Disaster Relief /FEMA partner /SBC NAMB entity Send Relief has stepped up and in to both fund the Implementation of reforms and give oversight of ministry “protecting families and children” is significant . And although the child sex abuse has seldom been the focus of the highly politicized Investigation and has ZERO focus in the applied culture change of DE&I- we are to accept that the SBC and these internal partners wish to “protect children.” . In fact the most vulnerable of victims seem to be left out of the outcomes. DE&I brings NOTHING at all for these young victims.
The Southern Baptist is the largest Protestant denomination or movement in America and its fall to DE&I compliance overhaul signals an end to much of mainstream biblically conservative Christianity in America. It signals an end to the political force and influence conservative Christians have enjoyed for the last two generations and that is actually a huge part of the intended outcomes by the progressive players who worked so hard to bring the “Crisis ” to the boiling point in 2018.
DE&I will subdue and subvert the stated vision of the SBC i.e. The Great Commission of spreading the Good News of Jesus to the World and will leave in its wake a WOKE scorched earth landscape void of the Gospel , flush with ongoing lawsuits, and policies which appease political goals -serve progressive political ends and leave victims out in the cold and on their own if they do not happen to fall among those cases carefully selected to be featured as window dressing for this host of agenda driven players who took up the crisis for their own assorted and sorted reasons.
What the SBC will no longer have is the guidance or presence of the Holy Spirit or the fruit of the Spirit or the fruitfulness which comes only from being on MISSION with the Gospel. It will however be “compliant” / Diverse/ Equitable / Inclusive with its empty churches and spiritually and financially bankrupt institutions.
AFTER OPERATING FROM 2006 TO 2018 MASKED AS A “CONSERVATIVE” REFORMED THEOLOGICAL MOVEMENT,RECENT YEARS HAVE EXPOSED THE PROGRESSIVE POLITICAL & GLOBALIST ORCHESTRATION OF TIM KELLER’S TGC AND GLOBAL PARTNERS LIKE WEA ,NAE & LAUSANNE.
NOW A DEEP LOOK AT ITS ORIGINS AND DEEPENING COMPROMISE.
Rev Thomas Littleton
The World Evangelical Alliance and partners like National Association of Evangelicals and the Lausanne Movement have come out of the shadows and into the full light of day shamelessly owning open promotion of the World Economic Forum/ United Nations Global Sustainability Goals of Agenda 2030. After taking part in the G20 Religion Summitt R20 and the COP 27 gatherings WEA has launched Roadmap to 2030 and multiple partners like The Gospel Coalition are fully committed to priming the next generation of Christians to be “global citizens” and embrace Agenda 2030. WEA openly invites you and your church to join them and “collaborate” the fulfillment of these global goals possible and to offer your children on the altars of pagan earth worshippers in the name of serving Jesus.
THEIR JUDGEMENT LOOMS AND SLUMBERS NOT.
2 Peter 2:2-4
2 And many will follow their destructive ways, because of whom the way of truth will be blasphemed. 3 By covetousness they will exploit you with deceptive words; for a long time their judgment has not been idle, and their destruction does not slumber.
Doom of False Teachers
4 For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment”
THE NETWORK BOSSES AND AFFILIATES IN THE SEDUCTION OF THE CHURCH INTO GLOBALIST DECEPTION.
Much of the Evangelical church is now aware of both the influence and the error of Tim Keller and his massive echo chamber of speakers and writers called The Gospel Coalition. Keller himself is terminally ill but showing no signs of remorse or repentance for his position as co-founder of TGC and its role as a super spreader of the infections pathogens of politically progressive and global goals false gospel in the conservative church across America and the world.
WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THE LIVING GOD
God charged Peter and all who are called of God to “feed my lambs”. John 21:15-17
God has warned that those who offend His little ones would be better off with a millstone tied around their necks and drowned in the depths of the sea in light of facing the full brunt of their ongoing deeds in accountability to Him. Matt 18:6
If the UN vision and globalist sustainability goals are not of God then the TGC and its leaders and the organizations above them are working tirelessly to deceive our children and indoctrinate them in global “citizenry ” to serve the fulfillment of the global goals of the United Nations, World Economic Forum, World Monetary Fund , and evangelical partnerships like WEA.
WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT TGC AND ITS PARENT ORGANIZATIONS
TGC is headquartered in Deerfield Illinois – World Evangelical Alliance has offices there as well. So are multiple other significant partners in the flood of false globalism teaching in Evangelicalism.
2011 “Tim Keller, founder and senior pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City, talks about evangelism and contextualizing the gospel for the 21st century city.by Evangelical Alliance United Kingdom”
WEA ROLE IN DEFINING EVANGELICALS AND CASTING ITS VISION
“Evangelical” is a term invented to serve as a descriptor for evangelistically focused Christians and denominations and movements centered about (supposedly ) the global fulfillment of Jesus Great Commission. Since is founding in 1846.”
“WEA is the broadest organizational and global manifestation of what it means to be an evangelical.”…NOW THE ORGANIZATION WHICH SEEKS TO DEFINE US IS fully lockstep with United Nations Global Goals and the 2030 focus on AGENDA 2030.
WEA H Q -WORK WITH UNITED NATIONS & BRAZEN FOCUS ON 2030
WEA headquarters are in Deerfield, Illinois, with UN offices in New York City, Geneva, and Bonn. It brings together 9 regional and 143 national evangelical alliances of churches, and over one hundred member organizations. ” British meetings starting in 1843 led to the watershed London gathering in August 19-September 2, 1846 at Freemason Hall. Representatives came from England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Sweden, Germany, France, Holland, Switzerland, the US and Canada. Some 800-1000 Christian leaders, representing 53 “bodies of Christians”, met for 13 days in worship, preaching and business.”
WEA AND UN AGENDA 2030 -“ROADMAP TO 2030”
“The Roadmap 2030 is our strategic adaptive plan to guide the WEA worldwide community. We are united in love and devoted to following Jesus, fostering unity in the body of Christ for Gospel witness and discipleship. We invite the WEA family of networks to align our efforts, join in collaboration, and increase our effectiveness to accelerate the health and growth of the Church around the world.”
“To strengthen credible Christian voices within the public sphere at the national, regional and global levels on critical and contemporary issues. This is done primarily through research, advocacy and empowering Evangelical Alliances to mobilize churches and civil society in mitigating violations of religious freedom and advocating for the marginalized or oppressed”
“We have a unique opportunity to affect the global narrative on critical issues in both sacred and secular halls of power. With WEA’s existing spheres of influence, such as our special consultative status in the United Nations, we will be bolder and more effective in speaking to global platforms of power. As a global network, we can learn from each other, and together we can influence laws and policies affecting religious freedom, justice, vulnerabilities and other appropriate issues to further the peace and well-being of all in a sustainable environment.”
“WEA intentionally facilitates working relationships with a diverse coalition of networks, organizations and denominations. As global issues and arrangements shift, we will remain alert and proactive, fostering partnerships and nurturing new and creative movements based on shared values and a common agenda centered on God’s kingdom.”
“Responsive and able organizational structures are critical for WEA to be effective with its Regional and National Alliances, global office and departments, partners and affiliates. A strong and dynamic organizational “backbone” is based upon a common agenda, helps measure shared outcomes, facilitates mutually reinforcing activities, and ensures connectivity among partners. Good organization assists alliances, departments, and affiliates to be more unified, and with appropriate lines of mutual accountability, it sets in place rethinking, reflecting on and reassessing of what is being done for God’s kingdom.”
WEA AND LAUSANNE CREATION CARE PARTNERSHIP SINCE 2013 EXPANDED IN 2019 NOW “ROADMAP 2030” IN DECEMBER 2022.
“With a global backdrop of serious ecological challenges, growing awareness of the biblical mandate to care for creation, and an increasing need to provide leadership in this arena at a global level, the WEA decided to create the WEA Creation Care Task Force (CCTF) in 2012.”
“After several years of fruitful collaboration, the WEA Creation Care Task Force and Lausanne Creation Care joined together to co-lead one unified creation care network called the Lausanne/WEA Creation Care Network (LWCCN).”
“In 2019 the WEA launched the WEA Sustainability Center (WEASC) in the strategic “UN City” of Bonn, Germany. Led by Matthias K. Boehning, the overarching objective of the WEASC is to equip churches and congregations around the world to implement creation care on a daily basis, thereby becoming a strong, legitimate, and unified voice in global sustainability. As the leadership of the CCTF and WEASC work collaboratively their combined, integrated, and strategic efforts are advancing the effectiveness of the evangelical community to care for God’s gift of creation.”
“We are excited to be at #COP15 in #Montreal. Today, WEA’s Chris Elisara spoke at a multi-faith discussion on #biodiversity quoting Jer 27:7 and saying that we need to focus on #creation in #cities, where now most people live.”
WEA AND RECENT GLOBALIST MEETINGS LIKE COP27 AND G20 /R20 RELIGIOUS FORUM
“The gospel is good news for all creation, not just humans. WEASC Co-Director
@mkboehning explains how we can embrace the full gospel.”
WEA SECRETARY GENERAL AMONG SPEAKERS AT G20 RELIGIOUS FORUM INITIATED BY WORLD MUSLIM LEAGUE -SEE ARTICLE ON THIS STE FROM 11/21/2022
Speakers at the R20 included:
Joko Widodo, President of Indonesia
Mohammad bin Abdulkarim Al-Issa, Secretary-General of Muslim World League
Yahya Cholil Staquf, General Chairman of Nahdlatul Ulama
Cardinal Miguel Ángel Ayuso Guixot, President of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue (Vatican)
Thomas Schirrmacher, Secretary General of the Protestant World Evangelical Alliance
SAMPLE OF WEA -NEGOTIATING CLIMATE JUSTICE FUND
Where the current negotiation texts are failing:
At the start of COP27, we met and issued a call as a result of the COP27 Talanoa Dialogue. Since then, there has been little progress. So far, we have heard a lot of unilateral pledges from parties and positions. Those are encouraging but little is on paper. “
“In addition, there is lack of progress on climate finance, including adaptation and loss and damage finance. Without this finance, the Global South cannot adapt to the climate emergency, and the debt situation will get worse. Global South leaders are calling the alarm, particularly small island states that are losing their territories, biodiversity, culture and identity. Increasingly climate disasters are costing lives and destroying homes in the Global North which are experiencing severe floods in countries like Germany and Belgium and massive widespread fires in Portugal and the US.”
“The developing countries negotiating are united in their desire to deliver a loss and damage fund at this COP, the richer countries who have already had the privilege to develop need to show solidarity and political leadership .”
WEA ADDITIONAL HISTORY
“Founded in 1846, the World Evangelical Alliance has created and nurtured an unprecedented worldwide network of nine Regional and 135 National Alliances, as well as associated partners and organizations. Today, WEA is recognized as a major representative of more than 600 million Evangelical Christians … and growing. Our unique role is to be a voice and platform that unite this global evangelical movement.”

TEENS FROM WEA “EXPOSED” EVENT FOCUSED ON SUSTAINABILITY GOALS.
LAUSANNE MOVEMENT A TIM KELLER EVANGELICAL KING MAKER
TIM KELLER WAS CROWNED BY THE LAUSANNE MOVEMENT IN 2010
Keller preached on his “Cities” initiative in 2010 which is a key part of the “URBAN FOCUS” of Agenda 21 which since 2015 UN meetings is know as Agenda 2030. Lausanne has multiple ministrie which fully and openly embrace Agenda 2030.
“Tim Keller discusses the importance of cities and megacities. He outlines why we must, how we should, and why we can reach them.
KELLER AND “CITIES” THE PERFECT HAND IN GLOVE FIT FOR AGENDA 2030
KELLERS CITY FOCUS INCLUDES “PLANTING CHURCHES IN GLOBAL CITIES ”
Keller speaking at Lausanne 2010
KELLERS CITY TO CITY MOVEMENT RELIES ON URBAN THEORIST RICHARD FLORIDA’S IDEOLOGIES .
Richard Florida is best known for the book “The Creative Class” and his “Gay Indexes ” promoting rainbow inclusion in Urban planning and funding …and work with the UCLA leadership
FLORIDA DEVELOPED THE TERM “THE GREAT RESET”
Keller seems to believe that Richard Florida’s discredited theories promoting LGBTQ drivers in Urban and Community Development are key to gospel movements like his own and also was involved in 2009 efforts incorporating Florida’s “Gay Indexes” and “Creative (gay) Class” structures into Reformed Theological Seminary Orlando and CRU/ Campus Crusade involvement with the “Seeking the Welfare of the City” vision and RTS “Polis Institute”. This massive effort to recast the vision of ministry in cities to align it with Faith Based Partnerships and Community Development was and is lockstep with Richard Florida’s “The Great Reset” and “justice driven ” economics of the World Economic Forum. Several key evangelical leaders and Keller associates like Francis Collins and Rick Warren work directly with WEF. Keller’s Urban focus IS Agenda 2030 – Great REset aligned and has been at least since the Lausanne 2010 vision casting and the 2009 start of the Polis Institute. Polis was a “project of Frankfurt School Cultural Marxist Institutes for Advanced Studies in Culture at UVA and funded by the “Kern Family Foundation which has provided the grants behind the corruption of conservative evangelical seminaries. Note- Polis Institute as of 2022 now fully embraces the UN Sustainability Goals /Agenda 2030
Tim Keller/CRU/ RTS Orlando “City Reaching ” model est 2009 -Polis Institute.
“From Richard Florida, author of the bestselling books The Rise of the Creative Class and Who’s Your City?, comes a book that frames the economic meltdown of 2008–09 not as a crisis but as an opportunity to “reset.” In doing so, he paints a fascinating picture of what our economy, society, and geography will look like—of how we will work and live—in the future.”
A Richard Florida disciple has a historic involvement in leader the UCLA “Williams Institute ” LGBTQ efforts which plays a key role in tracking and promoting LGBTQ census metrics and has recently begun to focus specific efforts on the “Transgender Populations” across the US.
Note- Florida’s books and theories have driven Lausanne leaders like Keller, David Platt and Ed Stetzer for decades and the theories behind them -especially Florida’s 2010 book “The Great Reset” was in play at Keller became one of the key Lausanne spokespersons in 2010 in South AFrica .
RICHARD FLORIDA AND “THE GREAT RESET”
“We’ve weathered tough times before. History teaches us that periods of “creative destruction,” like the Great Depression of the 1930s, also present opportunities to remake our economy and society and to generate whole new eras of economic growth and prosperity. In The Great Reset, bestselling author and economic development expert Richard Florida provides an engaging and sweeping examination of these previous economic epochs, or “resets,” while looking toward the future to identify the patterns that will drive the next Great Reset and transform virtually every aspect of our lives. He distills the deep forces that alter physical and social landscapes—how and where we live, how we work, how we invest in individuals and infrastructure, how we shape our cities and regions—and shows the ways in which these forces, when combined, will spur a fresh era of growth and prosperity, define a new geography of progress, and create surprising opportunities for all of us.”
NAE IS THE STATE SIDE WEA PARTNER AND FULLY ALIGNED WITH GLOBAL GOALS , INTERFAITH DIALOG, CLIMATE JUSTICE AND DIVERSITY EQUITY AND INCLUSION GOSPEL.
NAE COMPROMISES INCLUDE PROMOTING THE PANDEMIC RESPONSE WHICH SHUT DOWN CHURCHES AND THE VAX PUSH WHICH IS CURRENTLY COMING BACK TO HAUNT EVERYONE INVOLVED.
NAE PRESIDENT FUNDED BY FACEBOOK $$ AND WITH FACEBOOK- “LOVE THY NEIGHBOR ” CAMPAIGN JOINS OTHER PROGRESSIVES TO PUSH VAX.
“Evangelical leaders explain why skeptical evangelicals should get vaccinated.”
A Christian Perspective on the COVID Vaccines
“COVID vaccines have not only brought a sense of hope, but also many questions. Is it truly safe after such a quick timetable for development? Will it actually be effective and for how long? Are there ethical issues involved in the creation of the vaccines that Christians should know about?”
“In his role as director of the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Francis Collins oversees the largest supporter of biomedical research in the world. He is also a committed Christian. In Today’s Conversation podcast, you’ll hear Dr. Collins and NAE President Walter Kim discuss:”
The integration of faith, science and health;
How vaccines actually affect the body;
The manufacturing process and ethics behind vaccinations; and
What role pastors and Christians should play during the pandemic.
WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THE MONEY
Three major players in the funding are The Templeton Foundation which promotes “The merger of Science and Faith , Interfaith Dialog and “Faith efforts which hold to no sacred text” . The second is the Seminary grant maker whose WOKE justice and Faith and Works focus is spread throughout the TGC and Evangelical realm named the Kern Family Foundation. The third founding source which has seen its financial impact swell from one billion dollars into Christian ministries over 24 years to over a billion and half PER YEAR since @ 2009 is The National Christian Foundation. NCF does not release its donor names or a list of recipients upon request if you are not part of its “Donor Advised Funds” Tim Keller Friend and long time multiple Keller organization board member Bob Doll is/has been on the Board of both Lausanne and CNF.
Templeton followed Kern Family Foundation OFFSHORE TO THE CAYMAN islands by 2014 which serves zero tax advantages (because they are not needed for charitable organizations who are tax exempt.) but does provide a convenient hinderance to following the paper trail of funding coming and going on both donor and recipient end.
WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THEIR FALSE TEACHINGS
TGC AND ITS PARTNERS PUSH THE WOKE RACIAL PROPAGANDA IN 2018 WITH THE BOOK AND HASHTAG “#WOKECHURCH “
TGC ALSO COSPONSORED THE 2018 MLK/50 EVENT WITH sOUTHERN BAPTIST ORGANIZATION THE ERLC. MLK/50 CAUSED SIGNIFICANT PUSHBACK TO ITS FALSE JUSTICE GOSPEL .
TGC- MAY 2022 Is ‘Woke Church’ a Stepping Stone to Theological Compromise?
TGC PROMOTES THE LGBTQ/SOGI/ SSA CELIBATE MESSAGES OF REVOICE ,SAM ALLBERRY AND MANY MORE.
In 2013 TGC commissioned future Revoice leader Nate Collins to review and promote SSA/ Celibate gay priest Sam Allberry’s book “Is God Anti Gay” while Collins was helping with the final “Exodus International Conference that same year as so called “ex gay” ministries were collapsed . Allberry promoted Revoice LGBT+ Thriving in Historic (conservative ) Churches” in Spring of 2018 and had by that time become TGC editor on all things LGBTQ and Christian. Soon afterward TGC and Revoice began to target churches and youth as Allberry’s Living Out group already was focusing upon.
Guest: Thomas Littleton. Topic: Beyond Revoice: LGBT Agenda Recruiting Youth Pastors & Targeting Your Teens?
“Nate Collins and Gregory Coles are working with Alan Chambers who is well known for having dismantled Exodus International from within after becoming its last president . Devoted looks to bypass adult staff and parents and reach out to the youth pastor to help him/her provide effective “pastoral care” for LGBT+ student in their/your church youth group. Collins who ,again, honed his expertise at Dr. Albert Mohlers Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Gregory Coles who has received hearty endorsements of TGC and many in the PCA/ SBC camp (including the “Council for Biblical Manhood and Womanhood ” currently headed by Denny Burk) have just what a confused teen needs in your church youth group. A person who spent 14 years at Dr. Mohlers SBTS and still identifies as “homosexual in a mixed orientation marriage ” and Coles who identifies as a”single Gay Celibate Christian ” may be able make some of the cultures most desperately wrong narratives seem normal to the young believers hearts and minds.”
KELLER AND TGC ARE CLOSELY LINKED TO BOTH BIOLOGOS AND ITS FOUNDER FRANCIS COLLINS .
BioLogos and Collins included Keller in their early braintrust to promote “Theistic Evolution” and the merger of “Faith and Science”. Keller is also linked to BioLogos primary funder the Templeton Foundation. Besides the Theistic Evolution error -BioLogos is also heavily involved in promoting Interfaith Dialog especially Christian /Islamic Dialog.
TGC PROMOTES FEMINIST AND THEIR BOOKS
NOTE as always TGC brings both sides to the “conversations” they initiate and create a platform for dialectical consensus reaching . THIS is the TGC playbook.-Examples
TGC Themelios publication promoting Aimee Byrds book “Recovering from Biblical Manhood and Womanhood: How the Church Needs to Rediscover Her PurposeWRITTEN BY AIMEE BYRD
TGC promotes Feminist book accusing evangelical men of having indulged in too much toxic masculinity ….like watching too many John Wayne movies. The TGC reviewer cannot say enough on this “well written book”- “Review: Jesus and John Wayne by Kristin Kobes Du Mez”
TGC 2016 “A Conversation Guide for Egalitarians and Complementarians”
“Gender is on the agenda in both the community at large, and also in the church. So much is this the case that nowadays we often even add a descriptor of our position on gender to the other labels that we use for identifying the Christian sub-tribes that we belong to. So, I am no longer just an evangelical Anglican, I am now a complementarian evangelical Anglican, as opposed to an egalitarian evangelical Anglican! The unhelpful thing about these labels is that they can appear to simplify positions that can actually be quite nuanced and complex.”
KELLER/TGC PROMOTING SOCIAL JUSTICE
“Tim Keller on Why Caring About Justice Doesn’t Make You a Marxist.”
“Talking about oppression, justice, etc doesn’t make one a Marxist. It makes one a student of the Bible.”
Keller denies the brand of social justice he preaches is Marxist YET much of his famous social justice talking points like “Human Flourishing ” come from a self confirmed Frankfurt School ( ground zero for 1920s development of Cultural Marxism) IASC think tank. TGC ,Lausanne , Keller and IASC all worked very closely in 2015 “Civilitas ” movement which claimed that “lack of civility was the greatest threat to society worldwide”.
Keller has also confirmed again and again the he was directly influenced by Frankfurt School himself, So denying his form of social justice focus in NOT Marxist -simply does not square with his associations or history.
See Dr Williams New Calvinist articles on Keller for his documented Frankfurt School history.
“The Reason for God (2008), where he writes about his emotional attachment to the ideas of the Frankfurt School of Neo-Marxism. He confesses that in college he was ‘heavily influenced by the neo-Marxist critical theory of the Frankfurt School’, and admits that he ‘was emotionally’ drawn to the social activism of the neo-Marxists. Keller closes The Reason for God hoping his readers will become ‘true revolutionaries’ and will ‘go from here’ into churches that are devoted to actions of social justice. “
“He seeks to spawn the realization of the ‘desperate need’ he felt as a college student ‘to find a group of Christians who had a concern for justice in the world but who grounded it in the nature of God rather than in their own subjective feelings’.
TGC STEADY EFFORTS TO PROMOTE THE CLIMATE JUSTICE NARRATIVE
TGC-“Comfort for Climate Change Anxiety”Oct 2019
“God Wants the Blame for Climate Change”SEPTEMBER 22, 2021
“How Should Christians Engage the Current Conversation on Climate Change? OCTOBER 2, 2019
WHAT WE KNOW THEY HAVE DONE TO OUR SEMINARIES
TGC ,The Center for Transformational Churches and the Oikonomia Network headquarters are ALL located at TEDS or Trinity University and Divinity School.Kern Family Foundation which funds the justice driven grants for “Faith and Work Economics” into conservative seminaries and Christian Universities formed Oikonomia Network or “Kern Pastors Network” to oversee it’s grants. WOKE has “Flourished ” (their most preferred buzz word) in Seminaries because of these influences and money . TGC/Keller and these global partners are at the heart of this effort.
WEA NEW COMMITMENT TO “NEXT STEPS IN THEOLOGICAL (CHRISTIAN) EDUCATION
NOVEMBER 29 2022
“The 18th global consultation C-22 of the International Council for Evangelical Theological Education (ICETE) concluded in Izmir, Turkey after a week-long program focused on exploring practical next steps to collaborate among all forms of theological education worldwide for the sake of the Church, particularly in the area of pastoral training and leadership development.”… ICETE, which originally grew out of the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) more than forty years ago, has developed into a global hub for evangelical theological education and today is member of the WEA’s Global Theology Department.”….Participants embraced the vision to begin to write a future story for theological education: a story marked by collaborative moves from talking to doing across all sectors, with the ultimate aim to strengthen the Church.”
WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT THE PRESENT TARGETING OF CHILDREN IN OUR CHURCHES AND EVEN OUR HOMES.
TGC affiliates CURRICULUM is targeting our children in our own churches. Ed Stetzer’s The Gospel Project has a brain trust from the TGC WOKE /social justice stables and is designed for preK -adult classes.
TGC influence and speakers are moving heavily into gaining influence in organizations like ACSI- the Association of Christian Schools International which in 2021 began UnifyEd in partnership with a racial justice TGC advocate from a Kern FF funded center “Intersect Project ” at SEBTS Seminary. Walter Strickland ,head of UnifyEd admitted to NY Time that he teached James Cone and Black Liberation Theology and was part of the Baptist embrace of Critical Race Theory as a “useful analytical tool with the Gospel”.
ACSI also has TGC influence it is LGBTQ focus with promoting Allberry and Revoice leaders in conferences and schools in Europe . One Central European school has been totally invaded by TGC with a TGC church planted on its campus adn pulling in much of the faculty and families from the school into the church. It is estimated that over 30 missions organizations missionaries and their families attend this one school with zero other options for Christian education.
AWANA Clubs International has taken up the TGC stable of speakers on racial justice, segway egalitarian narratives and the LGBTQ Inclusion /Hospitality / SSA but Celibate narrative in 2 “Child Discipleship Forum” training meetings for AWANA leaders. AWANAs new leadership as of January 2022 is a Board member of the NAE.
AWANA now has a parents conversation guide for home use called “Talk About” .It remains to be seen if TGC WOKE Justice speaker lineup in the Awana CDF events of 2021 and 2022 as well as the speakers announced for the 2023 will be part of the “Talk About” conversations and “discipleship equipping” for parents at home. Time will certainly tell.
Of “Talk About”- AWANA CEO and NAE Board member Matt Markins told Baptist Press in April 2022 -”
“Matt Markins, President and CEO of Awana, echoed the sentiment that the backbone of family discipleship is relational communication.”
“We’re being commanded from the Scriptures to talk to our kids, and it’s clear that parents who are disciple-making parents talk to their children,” Markins said.
“If a basic foundation to an intimate relationship with their children is dialogue, then talk related to Christianity should not be a second language, but a heart language for families.”
“Markins said he hopes this resource can assist local churches, including many Southern Baptist Churches that use Awana programming, with “becoming an equipping community that trains parents in discipleship.”
“We’re giving parents what they need step by step so they have a long-term process and plan to cultivate disciples into young adulthood.”
“He even hopes “Talk About,” will be a resource that has influence not only for biological families, but entire church families as well.”
“I believe that in the experience of discipling children, both for parents and for church volunteers, those people are being discipled as well,” Markins said.”
ARE THERE ANY SAFE CHILDREN’S MINISTRIES LEFT WHO HAVE ESCAPED THE TGC REACH?
For organizations like ACSI and AWANA other Children’s ministries affiliated with or open to the NAE- WEA- Lausanne- TGC influence much MORE of the agenda is coming into their realms. These streams will include full on embrace of the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals like WEA and POLIS Institute and Lausanne Movement are doing. Alignment with the Great Reset is forthcoming and its financial goals including Digital Currency. Cooperation and participation in The Pandemic Industrial Complex and its weaponization of viruses and responses to them will occur. And of course Interfaith/Multi-Faith and Muslim -Christian dialog and “Chrislam ” are locked and loaded for launch into TGC/ NAE WEA affiliated organizations as is “Theistic Evolution” merging Science and Faith for unity sake and “the emergence of a just and harmonious world order”. i.e. the New World Order of the anti- christ. Poor eschatology has only accelerated these deceptions and will fuel many organizations , churches and institutions demise and judgement.
WHAT GOD ASSURES US THAT HE WILL DO.
God will call His true Bride out of this harlot church and “community”
4 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.”
God will bring swift judgement on these false teachers
Colossians 2:8 – Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.
2 John 1:7 – For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
John 7:24 – Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.
2 Timothy 4:3-4 – For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; (Read More…)
Matthew 7:16 – Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?
2 Peter 2:1-22 – But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction.
2 John 1:10 – If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
John 8:44 – Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
Revelation 2:2 – I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
Ephesians 5:11 – And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.
BY 2013 A LITERAL SWARM OF ACTIVIST CLAIMING SOME LEVEL OF LGBTQ “CHRISTIAN” IDENTITY WERE DUMPED INTO THE CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN ARENA TO CONDUCT AND LEAD “CONVERSATIONS” ON SAME SEX ATTRACTION AND CHRISTIAN IDENTITY. THE EMERGING “END GAME” OF INCLUSION DRAWN FROM VICTIM ASSERTIONS CONTEXTUALIZED FOR CHRISTIAN FAITH VIA INTERSECTIONALITY HAVE HAD OVER A DECADE TO CONFUSE, DECONSTRUCT AND GENERALLY WEAKEN A BIBLICAL UNDERSTANDING OF TRANSFORMATION AND PERSONAL HOLINESS.
Rev Thomas Littleton
Same Sex Attracted but Celibate script was launched into the conservative church orbit in order to circle the globe and bring about social change toward LGBTQ among Christians. It plays up victimhood, claims minority status, calls the nuclear family an “idol” ( This is taken straight from feminist theology of the early 90s) and degrades hetersosexuality. It has filled our seminaries and flooded our pulpits and discipleship curriculum. The Same Sex Attracted but Celibate Christian narrative allows for various levels of false claims to a “Gay Christian” identity and also in some cases boldly asserts LGBTQ and even “Queer Christian ” identity. What has been happening in Christian circles among speakers, publishers, books, articles, leaders and contrived conversations on human sexuality and gender has been an elaborate form of message shopping and classic activism for social change. It is based on dialog or classic dialectic consensus reaching. The narrative combines Critical Theories of many varieties and mass manipulation tactics from the social sciences well versed in human behavior and wrapped in theological and compassion language.
SOME OF THE PLAYERS IN THE SSA/SOGI MOVEMENT
One gay /SSA Celibate identified priest from the Church of England , Sam Allberry, is presently on a world tour and even being embraced and promoted to children by the Association of Christian Schools International in classrooms in Europe . Local churches globally are being primed through leadership training to incorporate Allberry and other SSA advocates and even racial driven critical theory CRT talking points into the Children’s ministries through the Awana Clubs International programs. There seems to be no place protected from or too sacred for the invasion of these activist charged narratives. More documentation on this reality in a moment.
(Allberrry’s Living Out website became the center of controversy for its content after more than six years . This happened when pastors who had promoted Allberrys books for years FINALLY bothered to read it. Much of the content was then removed and Allberry made public admissions and excuses for it. Meanwhile Allberry became The Gospel Coalition (TGC) editor on all things LGBTQ/SSA and was a key speaker and thought leader for the now infamous Ravi Zacharias ministries even as Ravi was being exposed for his sexual perversions and exploitation of relationships and his trusted reputation in ministry.)
BUTTERFIELD THE FEMININE GENDER AND QUEER THEOORY SPECIALIST
Another popular speaker in the SSA narrative is reformed “pastors wife and homeschool mom” Rosaria Butterfield who has an academic specialty in critical theory ,gender, queer and feminine theory as informed by Marx, Darwin and Freud. Her talking points are skillfully wrapped in Calvinist theological rhetoric and very popular among reformed pastors. Until recently Rosaria called the concept of and Christian counseling related to “ex gay” therapy or helping to restore people toward normal heterosexual desires as a “form of the prosperity gospel”. Her recent and very limited shift on this issue involves expanding her “understanding” through the work of a New Apostolic Reformation counselor and Bethel Church elder. Rosaria’s new view has more application to “transgendered who wish to transition back” than to “people wanting to escape homosexuality” which she insist has become “irrelevant”.
The problem is sweeping and has long term and devastating implications for Christian Ministry. “Ex Gay ” counseling of any kind is being vilified and outlawed at a rapid pace globally and is at the threshold of silencing any and all opposition through legal efforts by Human Rigths Campaign in America. To counsel against or even call for repentance from LGBTQ identity and lifestyle will soon be labelled “Hate Speech ” and become unlawful. Aided by the SSA but Celibate and “Gay Christian” talking points -this message will cut straight to the heart of how the church and the local pastor and even the individual believer will be able to respond to LGBTQ movements crushing blows on free speech, human rights and religious rights.
HISTORY ON THE SSA /CELIBATE/ GAY CHRISTIAN NARRATIVE
Where did SSA/ Same Sex Attracted but Celibate Christian language come from?
First ask– “Is this not an obviously co-ordinated and contrived global effort?’ Clearly it is.
Secondly ask- “How did faithful Gospel and Biblically sound movements decide to abandon the understanding that Gospel transformation can does and must sanctify the heart and desires of saved individuals no matter what their backgrounds or sexual past?” So – “HOW did homosexuality /LGBTQ become beyond the reach of the Gospel at the same time the current version of the sweeping LGBTQ rights global movement took shape in 2010? Why have Christian leaders decided to set aside the TRUTH of the Gospel and bow the knee to the assertions of SOGI and SSA?”
Thirdly – Consider that the church had no reason to promote “conversations” on any new perspectives rooted in SSA/SOGI assertions . Nothing beyond the Word of God is needed or will ever be needed to authoritatively address this, ANY other sins and ALL sexual sins and behavior. Simply put the church never needed these conversations. Having them only provided a platform for activist change agents for social change inside the church.
NOTE: The first time this author ever heard the phrase “Same Sex Attracted ” applied to Christian faith was in 2011 when a popular PCA pastor from Atlanta Randy Pope used SSA in a sermon where he was pitching his curriculum, Community Development “Connector”, Faith Based Partnership models to/in this authors church. Pope insisted that in order to connect and achieve any kind of relevance for witness and winning “SSA people to faith” that we must become welcoming and inclusive Christians and churches.
SSA but Celibate leaves homosexual /LGBTQ desires intact and repositions them from being understood as “Temptation ” into being part of the persons unchanging “Orientation” and Christian identity. The true biblical understanding of temptation and inordinate desire is to crucify and mortify it…put it to death. Todays SSA “victim ” must wear the label and give up any real hope for change. Many like Allberry and those named here have been able to specialize in spreading the SSA/SOGI narrative and turn SSA but Celibate into entire careers spent promoting it including books and endless conferences and speaking engagements.
To this author first hearing the SSA but Celibate language-it was disturbingly akin to an AA (Alcoholics Anonymous ) for Gays. Once an alcoholic always an alcoholic and translated into a “born this way” / “Sexual Orientation “narrative which allows for “Gay Christianity” and a host of accommodation terms. Unquestioned acceptance of these quickly cost the church the ability to proclaim the true Gospel and lay out historic repentance demands thus leaving people who truly want deliverance to remain hopelessly captive to some form of gay or LGBTQ identity…. even in their faith. Also it has left their families searching for voices of hope somewhere other than from the church.
TODAY EVEN LONG TRUSTED CHILDRENS MINISTRIES LIKE AWANA AND CHRISTIAN SCHOOL OVERSITE LEADERS LIKE ACSI ARE PROMOTING THESE SSA ACTIVIST.
PHOTO & COMMENT TAKEN FROM AWANA CHILD DISCIPLESHIP FORUM 2022 EVENT.
“Sam Allberry has a heart to shepherd the children of God. He is a well known author and speaker and has a passion to pass on biblical identity to children who are living in a confusing world. He’ll be joining us at the Child Discipleship Forum this September in Franklin, Tennessee, and through Sam’s research, we will hear insight on how we can disciple our children to pursue God’s calling.”
ACSI PROMOTING ALLBERRY AND SSA ACTIVIST IN THEIR RESOURCES.
15 REASONS WHY SSA CHRISTIANITY IS FALSE AND DANGEROUS
2. SOGI is self contradictory . The assertion is that “Sexual Orientation is inborn and unchanging while also asserting that Gender Identity is fluid- non binary and NOT linked to biological birth gender. The assumption here is that the “science”can have it both ways in the narrative with no actual science to support it or resolve the glaring contradiction which SOGI represents. SOGI is homosexual LGB normative while deconstructing gender making it fluid.
3. Planned Parenthood / SIECUS / the APA / The United Nations and international Malthusian ( overpopulation advocates ) globalists have been the main promoters and originators of the LGBTQ/SOGI concepts in human rights interpretation. By interpreting human rights and assigning them primarily to the fringes of human identity like transgenderism at the expense of the protection of others rights in the majority-these organizations have been able to strip most of the Western civilizations of historic and constitutionally guaranteed rights while pushing the definition of Human Rights to the edge -for the “marginalized only” and under the control of those who own the narrative.
“Protecting the marginalized ” means marginalizing the normal majority. It really is a brilliant progressive strategy to strip everyone of basic human rights including LGBTQ identified people. And it is being done in the name of “preserving human dignity” for all.
The entire discussion of human rights now not only rest with global malthusian interest like Planned Parenthood and the United Nations but are totally politicized and driven by the fluid world of non binary “identities”.
4. The SSA narrative entered biblically conservative church movements in large part by the Lausanne Movement in 2010 and by The Gospel Coalition (TGC)and Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) . These organizations were working in tandem with progressive political and critical theory informed narratives aimed at forcing social change in the attitudes of Christians toward emerging LGBTQ social upheaval. The church-it has been decided -must have its views altered and shifted to prevent “discrimination ” All churches must become more welcoming – inclusive – hospitable and diverse equitable and inclusive. The shift is part of the larger move into a social justice / Diversity Equity & Inclusion (DEI) based “social gospel” which weakened and destroyed the mainline denominations in the 1970s. Same false gospel with slightly retuned narratives. SSA / SOGI seeks to unhinge the Christian views from the Bibles clear condemnation of homosexuality and present it in more culturally relevant and guilt driven context. It also ignores the historically disruptive role in cultural decline of ancient civilizations and play upon modern politically exploitative narratives of Cultural Marxism. Make no mistake -the primary target of this movement is your faith and the next generations within the church and Christian homes.
Tim Keller is cofounder of TGC and is part of the once conservative PCA Presbyterian denomination. Keller was part of the 2010 Lausanne Movement meetings where the 5 SSA whitepapers were presented and adopted. TGC Also adopted its APA based whitepaper by APA’s Mark Yarhouse that same year. TGC and Keller’s rise in popularity have taken place despite his deep compromise on false social justice ,Frankfurt School influenced and “equity based” gospel.
Keller has openly problematic views on homosexuality. By 2011 Keller refused to openly and plainly state in black and white that homosexuality was a sin in a Columbia University “Veritas Forum” event. Keller reportedly had a homosexual brother who died from AIDS and this would explain his being personally conflicted. It does not however explain or justify his deadly errors in leadership and use of TGC to spread this compromise across conservative Christian movements. Keller’s PCA and its flagship Seminary Covenant Theological Seminary (CTS ) are deeply infected with SSA/ SOGI and spreading it like STDs across their movement and churches. Keller attended and presented ,along with his wife Kathy, the June 2018 Allberry/ Living Out event in London where Keller’s wife embraced the newly introduced Living Out LGBTQ Inclusion -Church Audit which she proclaimed to be “brilliant” and promised to take back to their NYC congregations.
CTS , along with Baptist SBTS had key players in the leadership of the Revoice LGBTQ Thriving in Histoirc (conservative ) Churches movement which was promoted in April 2018 by Allberry “for our US audience” to be held in July 2018. CTS and TGC infection of the PCA with Revoice has left the denomination hopelessly entangled in the “Side A vs Side B ” false SOGI based deflections. The PCA is investing years and its theological braintrust in splitting hairs over the meaning of the word Concupiscence.
(See the information below for Kellers 2011 overt compromise on LGBTQ sinfulness.)
One Nation Under Sex by Larry Flynt and David Eisenbach
” Wednesday, August 24, 2011
Free-speech advocate, Hustler magazine magnate, and campaigner against political hypocrisy, Larry Flynt teams up with Columbia University professor David Eisenbach, Ph.D. in One Nation Under Sex, to shed light on how the private lives of America’s political leaders have shaped American history.)
5. SSA insist that homosexuals have been mistreated and excluded from the church. SSA says that their desires are not in themselves sinful but only if they are acted upon . Celibacy is then the answer or response to secure being “Biblically faithful and orthodox” while allowing a range of LGBTQ indentites to be included and protected from mistreatment. The church MUST make room for and realign with modern culture, global goals and the APA. Christians must embrace being Gay and Christian as a reality.
6. Culture Change Efforts of SSA but Celibate go like this “curse to cross to crown”. The talking points of SOGI and SSA change efforts move along the critical theory ideologies assertion that a long history of mistreatment of LGBTQ by Christians exist. This has caused the church to considered homosexuality to be a”Curse”. Today SSA but celibate is rapidly becoming a special status of sacrificial cross bearing disciples who are more deeply devoted to Christ than their heterosexual counterparts. Following this false progression the intent is for this sympathy to translate into one day LGBTQ Christians and SSA Celebates status will be “Celebrated as a CROWN” . ( Taken from TGC/ Christianity Today thought leader Ed Stetzers interview with a now openly gay Southern Baptist thought leader in 2014 called “The future of evangelicals. Stetzer is a key Lausanne leader.)
7. SSA Celibacy denies Gospel Transformation and ignores the many thousands of people who are living epistles of and have solid gospel testimonies of full conversion of life and desires and heteronormative lives and families. In fact such fully converted people are fully excluded in todays SSA/SOGI narrative and their very existence is openly denied.
8. SSA relies on “Celibacy” as a false state of “Biblical Faithfulness” in a narrative that is not based in scripture even remotely and is solely dependent on the individuals continued commitment to celibacy while asserting their same sex desires will never change. Many have moved into the “side A” fulling affirming of homosexuality and gay marriage after legalization of gay marriage globally.
9. SSA Celibate also implies that the Biblical basis for remaining unmarried is a safe haven for unchanged sexual desires instead of the true biblical version of dedication to service of the Lord without distraction in which repressed sexual desire actually has nothing to do with biblical faithfulness.
10. SSA Celibate and LGBTQ Christian organizers fail totally to engage fully converted “FORMER or EX ” homosexuals or LGBTQ among their gatherings and conversations. Organizations like TGC and ERLC have NO FORMER -NOW TOTALLY REDEEMED and TRANSFORMED Believers involved in their narratives. Such testimonies are excluded and protest about their exclusion are rejected.
11. TGC and ERLC and similar or related organizations have dominated the conversations, conferences, articles, books, curriculum with activist promoting SSA but Celibate / Mixed Orientation Marriage / LGBTQ “Christianity”. Their handpicked activist like Sam Allberry, Christopher Yuan, Jackie Hill Perry, Rosaria Butterfield, Nate Collins, Rebecca McLaughlin, Rachel Gilson and others to promote their message. All practice varying degrees of gender, feminine, queer theories and intersectionality and call for “hospitality, inclusion, welcome, practice of”messy grace” resulting in LGBTQ invitations into the church.
NOTE- THIS is presented as a Gospel approach to use the church to evangelize people .In fact this false and doomed approach fails to understand that evangelism is done by the sharing of the Gospel and repentance and faith allow for God to set the sinner free – infuse them with the Divine Nature and make the redeemed part of the Body of Christ aka The Church.
AGAIN-We are not called to use the Body of Christ or “inclusion” in it…which we cannot offer .. to unrepentant and unregenerate people as a means to evangelize and reach lost people.This welcome and inclusion is NOT how the Gospel works .
SSA / LGBTQ activist like these mentioned above are more interested in driving social change in the church toward themselves and others like them who seek to cling to some various form of LGBTQ identity , protect and sanctify their inordinate desires , and make the Gospel out to be driven by hospitality instead of preaching Christ and calling for repentance. Allberry and his ministry Living Out” ( meaning living OUT -as openly gay) even decided to develop and market an LGBTQ Inclusion Church Audit to put churches to their test of LGBTQ hospitality metrics.
12. Experienced Christian Counselors affirm that the SSA Celibate narrative is “a false narrative which places those wanting out of homosexuality and LGBTQ identity on a slippery slope which will inevitably collapse into the affirming of homosexuality and LGBTQ Christianity “
13. False narratives have led to false status and false positions like SSA where celibacy is the hingepoint of faithfulness and not holiness and devotion to transformation by the Gospel. The “Side A Fully affirming vs Side B SSA but Celibate -biblically faithful and within the confines of historic orthodoxy -arguments are circular and a non biblical segway process to garner support for fully affirming all sexual behaviour and redefining of marriage within the church.. Again the once conservative denomination the PCA has been LOST in a years long circular discussion over Side A vs Side B. Activist who launched these narratives are thriving on the aimless and endless discussion . Meanwhile they are also “Flourishing ” in the churches of the PCA and other movements taken in by these talking points,
14. SSA Celibate is simply an updated language to the old arguments of the 1970s over “non practicing homosexuals ” being accepted into church membership and ordained to positions of ministry.This segway language and movement led very quickly to full affirmation of and acceptance of practicing homosexuals and now to “Gay Christian Identity” , LGBTQ Christian, and DE&I metrics for these church as their standards and norms.
15. Those who want out of the spectrum of LGBTQ life and identity need HOPE=-real hope of freedom and transformation. The true Gospel offers that without any respect of persons and no exceptions regardless of the past and sins of the individual. The families of LGBTQ identified people need HOPE as well that their loved ones can be set free and restored and their painfully divided families restored. This movement has divided many families and left many many people hurting and looking for HOPE. This hope can only be found in Jesus and the power of His cross and His shed blood and resurrection . One of the BIGGEST problems with these SSA Celibate , SOGI and other narratives is they cannot and do not offer the hope of true freedom and transformation.
Biblical Truth vs a False Narrative :
Hebrews 7 :
24 But He, because He continues forever, has an unchangeable priesthood. 25 Therefore He is also able to save [h]to the uttermost those who come to God through Him, since He always lives to make intercession for them.
26 For such a High Priest was fitting for us, who is holy, [i]harmless, undefiled, separate from sinners, and has become higher than the heavens; 27 who does not need daily, as those high priests, to offer up sacrifices, first for His own sins and then for the people’s, for this He did once for all when He offered up Himself.
1st Corinthians 6:
9 Or do you not know that the unrighteous[b] will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality,[c]10 nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
28 And when He came to the other side into the country of the Gadarenes, two demon-possessed men confronted Him as they were coming out of the tombs. They were so extremely violent that no one could pass by that way. 29 And they cried out, saying, “[a]What business do You have with us, Son of God? Have You come here to torment us before [b]the time?” 30 Now there was a herd of many pigs feeding at a distance from them. 31 And the demons begged Him, saying, “If You are going to cast us out, send us into the herd of pigs.” 32 And He said to them, “Go!” And they came out and went into the pigs; and behold, the whole herd rushed down the steep bank into the sea and [c]drowned in the waters. 33 And the herdsmen ran away, and went to the city and reported everything, [d]including what had happened to the demon-possessed men.
22 You shall not lie with a male as with a woman. It is an abomination.
13 nIf a man lies with a male as he lies with a woman, both of them have committed an abomination. They shall surely be put to death. Their blood shall be upon them.
27 And Abraham went early in the morning to the place where he had stood before the Lord. 28 Then he looked toward Sodom and Gomorrah, and toward all the land of the plain; and he saw, and behold, the smoke of the land which went up like the smoke of a furnace. 29 And it came to pass, when God destroyed the cities of the plain, that God remembered Abraham, and sent Lot out of the midst of the overthrow, when He overthrew the cities in which Lot had dwelt.
18 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who [d]suppress the truth in unrighteousness, 19 because what may be known of God is [e]manifest [f]in them, for God has shown it to them. 20 For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and [g]Godhead, so that they are without excuse, 21 because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Professing to be wise, they became fools, 23 and changed the glory of the incorruptible God into an image made like [h]corruptible man—and birds and four-footed animals and creeping things.
24 Therefore God also gave them up to uncleanness, in the lusts of their hearts, to dishonor their bodies among themselves, 25 who exchanged the truth of God for the lie, and worshiped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever. Amen.
26 For this reason God gave them up to vile passions. For even their [i]women exchanged the natural use for what is against nature. 27 Likewise also the [j]men, leaving the natural use of the [k]woman, burned in their lust for one another, men with men committing what is shameful, and receiving in themselves the penalty of their error which was due.
28 And even as they did not like to retain God in their knowledge, God gave them over to a debased mind, to do those things which are not fitting; 29 being filled with all unrighteousness, [l]sexual immorality, wickedness, [m]covetousness, [n]maliciousness; full of envy, murder, strife, deceit, evil-mindedness; they are whisperers, 30 backbiters, haters of God, violent, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, 31 [o]undiscerning, untrustworthy, unloving, [p]unforgiving, unmerciful; 32 who, knowing the righteous judgment of God, that those who practice such things are deserving of death, not only do the same but also approve of those who practice them.
1st Timothy 1:
5 Now the purpose of the commandment is love from a pure heart, from a good conscience, and from[b]sincere faith, 6 from which some, having strayed, have turned aside to idle talk, 7 desiring to be teachers of the law, understanding neither what they say nor the things which they affirm.
8 But we know that the law is good if one uses it lawfully, 9 knowing this: that the law is not made for a righteous person, but for the lawless and insubordinate, for the ungodly and for sinners, for the unholy and profane, for murderers of fathers and murderers of mothers, for manslayers, 10 for fornicators, for sodomites, for kidnappers, for liars, for perjurers, and if there is any other thing that is [c]contrary to sound doctrine, 11 according to the glorious gospel of the blessed God which was committed to my trust.
INTERFAITH PARTICIPATION BY PCA AND SBC LEADERS IS RAMPANT AMONG GLOBALIST RELIGIOUS LEADERS. THE MOST RECENT ROUND TOOK PLACE IN INDONESIA AT THE FIRST EVER “R20” INITIATED AT G20 BY THE WORLD MUSLIM LEAGUE.
Presbyterians and Baptist look to lining up in the rush into apostasy, global goals vision casting and now using interfaith dialog to openly boast their role in the effort to”foster the emergence of a truly just and harmonious world order.” The reasons for this insanity are rooted in several new realities. Christian missions organizations like the PCA Mission to North America and the Southern Baptist North American Missions Board/ International Missions Board collaborate with the governments and international NGOs to import refugees and support human migration ,especially of Muslims, into the United States. Also leaders like Tim Keller and Rick Warren are leading out in the push for more and ever deepening interfaith dialog and agreements like this G20 Religious Forum.
Welcome to the Indonesia Religion Forum (R20 Indonesia 2022)
“The R20 forum will leverage the ‘Group of 20’ (G20) Summit, an annual gathering of the world’s most economically powerful nations, to help ensure that religion in the 21st century functions as a genuine and dynamic source of solutions, rather than problems.
In order to fulfill this vision, R20 forum will mobilize diverse religious, political and economic leaders from G20 Member States and elsewhere throughout the world to:
• prevent the weaponization of identity;
• curtail the spread of communal hatred;
• promote solidarity and respect among the diverse peoples, cultures and nations of the world; and
• foster the emergence of a truly just and harmonious world order, founded upon respect for the equal rights and dignity of every human being.”
G20 INTERFAITH CALL TO ACTION AGENDA
“The G20 Interfaith Forum (“IF20”) is inspired by the extraordinary contemporary efforts of religious communities—leaders, witnesses, organizations, alliances, scholars—across the world—to work together,with each other and with countless other partners, to address the crises.”
Multireligious coalitions, alliances, and partnerships are doing so. We cite a few examples: ( NOTE- This includes the WHO/ Pandemic leadership, UN Climate /Global Warming agenda, Commission on Refugees and even Agenda 2030 Global Sustainability Goals. )
Religions for Peace makes common cause with the World Health Organization (WHO), the United Nations Environment Program (UNEP), and the High Commission on Refugees (UNHCR).
Jubilee USA presses for action on to mobilize and reform global financial architecture.
The International Partnership on Religion and Sustainable Development (PaRD) addresses Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) one by one.
Arigatou International exemplifies a laser focus on children.
The International Freedom of Religion or Belief Alliance highlights victims of discrimination.
The Culture of Encounter that Pope Francis exhorts is intricately linked to the 2019 document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together, signed with the Sheikh of Al-Azhar.1
WORLD MUSLIM LEAGUE LEADERSHIP
“The first R20 was organised by two of the world’s largest Islamic non-governmental organisations, the Muslim World League (MWL) and the Indonesian Nahdlatul Ulam (NU).”

The forum’s opening remarks were delivered by Dr Muhammad Abdulkarim Al Issa, Head of the world’s largest Islamic NGO, the Muslim World League, and Yahya Cholil Staquf, Chairman of Nahdlatul Ulama which boasts a membership of over 40 million, in addition to Indonesian President, Joko Widodo.
WML HISTORY OF WORK WITH EVANGELICAL LEADERS LIKE DAVID PLATT AND BOB ROBERTS IN WASHINGTON DC MEETINGS.
October 2021 a meeting took place in Washington DC with WML leadership and multiple big face Baptist leaders.These meetings included popular “Radical” brand leader David Platt and TX interfaith leader/pastor Bob Roberts OF “MULIT-FAITH NETWORK”.
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.
THE DIALOG GOES FORWARD DESPITE WARNINGS OF WML MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD CONNECTIONS
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 .”

A virtual address from His Holiness Pope Francis was also delivered.
THE POPE SPEAKS VIRTUALLY /CATHOLIC PRESS HIGH PRAISE
“The R20 summit, Sheikh Staquf told Indonesian agency Antara, expected to host “no less than 160 international figures” and some 4,000 participants.”
“Archbishop Warda thanked Staquf for allowing a place for discussion to flourish and quoted the Muslim sheikh’s words that any Islamic doctrine of enmity was “unreasonable” and a barrier to “living harmoniously and peacefully within the multicultural, multireligious societies of the 21st century.”
“In his livestreamed speech, the Catholic leader called for an “honest discussion about the primordial cycle of hatred, supremacy, and violence that has plagued humanity since before the dawn of history.”
“The archbishop echoed the words of Pope Francis in Iraq to Christians during his visit in 2021, stressing that love was real strength. He stressed the need to be able to forgive — without forgetting — and “a renewed encounter with our Muslim neighbors based in the reality of our experience.”
ARCHBISHOP THINKS G20 CAN SAVE THE WORLD?
“And while I am personally convinced that the world of faith will ultimately prevail,” Archbishop Warda added, “it cannot do so when the constant face of our world of faith is one of violence against the other, or even against ourselves.”
“He said: “We beg those who will be assembled in the forthcoming G20 summit, those who continue to have access in shaping policy for the world, to daily remember that your global planning decisions have life or death consequences for the people living on the outside.”
PRESBYTERIAN CHURCH IN AMERICA MISSION TO NORTH AMERICA LEADER TOM JOHNSON BROUGHT REPRESENTATION OF PCA MISSIONS AND ACSI –ASSOCIATION OF CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS INTERNATIONAL.
“Thomas K. Johnson, Research Vice President of Martin Bucer Seminary, serves the World Evangelical Alliance as senior theological advisor and is Co-chair of the Humanitarian Islam/World Evangelical Alliance Joint Working Group. He is a widely published author on theology, ethics, and human rights and has edited or translated several books and essays about Islam.”
NOTE -TOM JOHNSON WORKS DIRECTLY WITH CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS FOR THEIR ACCREDITATION BY ACSI.
(NOTE :INFORMATION FROM PCA MISSIONS LEADER TOM JOHNSON’S NEWSLETTER)
Thank You! G20 Religion Forum in Indonesia A Note from Tom I would like to thank you because you made it possible for me to represent many millions of Christians at the first G20 Religion Forum.
“The G20, which was founded to prevent future global economic crises, has been mostly a gathering of heads of state, finance ministers, secretaries of trade, and central bankers from the 20 largest economies. More recently the G20 leadership has begun to add discussions of topics that have global impacts on societies and economies. This year, while Indonesia was coordinating the events, discussion of religions was added.”
“Already for a couple generations the largest Indonesian Muslim group, with whom the WEA has a religious freedom joint working group, has been trying to allow the peaceful development of both Protestant and Catholic churches. This peaceful neighborliness of Muslims with Christians forms the background for the economic growth of their country. Now, through the G20, political and religious leaders from other major countries are publicly considering how to apply this model in their countries. Even the first steps in this process, such as top Saudi Arabian Muslim leaders having their pictures taken while attending meetings with Christians, will reduce the persecution of Christians in their countries, including saving the lives of Christians.”
“It is valuable for Christians to support this process and to have representatives at the table for the discussions. Again, thank you for letting me represent Christians in this forum by means of your giving, praying, and encouragement. My invitation to give a speech at this event was the result of years of study, writing, and meetings while you were supporting us. We hope you will continue supporting us with prayer and finances.“
TOM JOHNSON WHO REPRESENTS PCAs MISSION TO NORTH AMERICA AND ACSI MAKES HIMSELF AT HOME AMONG INTERFAITH LEADERS
SOME OF PCA LEADER TOM JOHNSON’S PAST WORK FROM 2021 FROM HIS NEWSLETTER.TOMS INTERFAITH BOOK ACCEPTANCE AND WORK WITH THE STATE DEPARTMENT.
“As soon as this book was released online, I sent a PDF of the book, which includes long explanations of important themes in Protestant theology and ethics, to our Muslim counterparts. Some of them read it almost immediately; within a few days after publication, they thanked me for describing them and their views accurately. They are accustomed to inaccurate or even slanderous descriptions of Islam coming from Christians.”
“With my permission they placed my book on their website, along with a very nice communique. They wrote, “The world’s largest Protestant organization has endorsed the Humanitarian Islam movement as an essential vehicle for peacefully and definitively resolving ‘the Muslim-Christian clash of civilizations, which started almost 1,500 years ago. ‘On the day that Pope Francis commenced an historic papal visit to Iraq — which included a meeting with the world’s preeminent Shi‘ite spiritual leader and a tour of Mosul, until recently a stronghold of the defeated ISIS caliphate — the World Evangelical Alliance (WEA) Theological Commission published Humanitarian Islam, Evangelical Christianity, and the Clash of Civilizations.” Until very recently I could not have imagined that the world’s largest Muslim organization would promote a book by a Protestant theologian. PTL!”
“My work representing the WEA in religious freedom efforts of the US State Department is continuing. I do not know if the change at the White House will have a large influence. This means that I am participating in Zoom meetings with religious leaders and diplomats from several countries. Sometimes I can give a speech. Two such speeches are available online: Understanding Religious Persecution and Religious Communities as Good Neighbors.”
CHRISTIAN EDUCATION AND MUSLIM MIGRATION AN ODD MIX IN THE CALVINIST PCA WORLD.
TOM JOHNSON WORK WITH MISSION TO NORTH AMERICA AND REFUGEES.
Representing Refugees and Immigrants
“As you know, I now work part-time for the PCA’s Mission to North America (MNA) Refugee and Immigrant Ministry as the Cross-cultural Training Specialist. In September, in that role, I attended meetings for the heads of the different ministries working under Mission to North American (MNA), not as the head of the Refugee and Immigrant Ministry, but on behalf of the director, Pat Hatch.”
“In October, I stood in for Pat and our ministry again at a Church Planters Summit held at Covenant Seminary. The idea was to have all the ministries of MNA there so church planters can see what is available as they work to grow new churches.”
“Now I am getting to know the ministries in the Knoxville area that are ministering to refugees and immigrants. Recently, I was trained as a volunteer for Bridge Refugee Services, and I met with the person who is the “School Liaison.” She and I will be planning some trainings together, and I may do some tutoring.”
“The fun fact is that these two works, MNA Refugee and Immigrant Ministry and volunteering for Bridge Refugee Services, go hand in hand. I thank the Lord for this privilege.”
ACSI EU and Global
TOM JOHNSON SEALS OF REPRESENTATION
“My work with international Christian school accreditation is continuing with ACSI Global. I am looking forward to going to Europe in April to work with a team at an international Christian school in their accreditation process. In the meantime, I will be meeting with school leaders of this school on Zoom for two days just before Thanksgiving to see how things are going and to give encouragement.”
MORE OF TOM JOHNSONS WORK WITH ACSI FROM 2021
ACSI “In early March, I was a part of the ACSI Europe team that helped put on a virtual conference in partnership with ECCEN (European Conference for Christian Education in the Netherlands). The bi-annual conference is called the International Educational Leadership Conference and seeks to support and strengthen Christian school leaders. There were 272 people from 46 different countries who joined us in the conference. The Lord be praised“!
“Now our ACSI Europe colleagues will start looking forward to the Student Leadership Conference held in September each year. We are praying it can be face-to-face this year. Last year’s was online. Europe is currently quite locked down, so we just do not know at this point.” In April, I will be leading an accreditation team for a “virtual” accreditation “visit” of a Christian international school. It is a lot of work for the school and the team, but it strengthens the school and the visiting team members learn a lot. Pray I have wisdom as I help the team and school navigate through a virtual visit.“
“After that accreditation, I will return to my series of workshops on “Teaching with Cultural Intelligence.” I have been asked to develop an online version of it for ACSI’s Pre-Field Orientation (PFO) that is entirely online now.”
With massive funding going into “human migration ” and “refugee resettlement ” especially Muslims in the West , groups like the PCA and SBC missions departments certainly have motivation to take a seat at the table . But the inspiration does not come from the Good News of the Gospel since such efforts and interfaith dialog do not include evangelization of the rival religious leaders and participants at the table. Also Government funding prevents the sharing of the Gospel or any efforts to convert the refugees or migrants in programs the government is funding.
The only conclusion that can be honestly reached is that the inspiration comes from the MONEY …in the Hundreds of Millions and Billions . Partner NAE humanitarian arm World Relief is THE recruiter for evangelical partners like the PCA and SBC and it has had a huge windfall of cask for its efforts.
So what else is inspiring these compromises? Perhaps it is the deep deception of thinking these EVANGELICALS can in fact “foster the emergence of a truly just and harmonious world order, founded upon respect for the equal rights and dignity of every human being.”
“Medical schools should fear a failing grade from the AAMC, which helps determine whether they get accredited. As a former associate dean, I can attest that when the AAMC sets priorities, administrators rush to follow them.”
“Schools are all but uniformly woke on many other measures. Ninety-nine percent have leaders who routinely participate in local, state or national DEI forums, diverting their focus from actual education. Some 98% have created a system for students to report bias, which risks self-censorship from educators who fear reprisals for teaching health care’s more difficult topics. The same percentage have launched new initiatives or funding streams for DEI, while 97% have “a dedicated office, staff, and resources.”
“That means there’s a permanent bureaucracy at most medical schools pushing woke ideology on faculty and students alike. These efforts take away time and money from actual education.”
“More than 40% of medical schools offer tenure and promotions to faculty who conduct DEI scholarship.”
FAITH BASED PARTNERSHIPS/ COLLABORATIONS AND CLINICS HAVE ALREADY ENDANGERED HEALTH CARE BY CHRISTIAN PROVIDERS AND AS MINISTRY VISION.
Faith Based Partnership models able to obtain HHS and other government funding and corrupt , agenda driven private funding have taken a massive toll on the quality of care and biblical vision of Christian providers. “Community Based Clinics” run by Faith Based Providers dot the map across American cities .The models compete directly with private practice and have the ideologies of Woke Justice / DEI / Healthcare “Equity” deeply embedded in them.
SOME OF THE MONEY AND HISTORY OF THIS INFLUENCE
In 2017 the Medical College of Wisconsin was endowed with a $37.8 million dollars grant to create a template for transforming health care education. By Summer of 2022 another $50 million grant was made to further the affliction plaguing healthcare education. Where did this money come from? A little known Wisconsin based family based Kern Family Foundation which has been funding K-12 / Seminaries and Engineering education for years. “
KERNS FUNDING PRIORITIES IN MEDICINE ?
“The Kern Family Foundation made its largest grant of $67 million to the Mayo Clinic. In 1930, Mayo Clinic treated five-year-old Robert Kern as a charity case because his father was a pastor. The grant was used to create the Center for the Science of Health Care Delivery at the clinic. “
“The foundation also supports the Medical College of Wisconsin. A 2009 grant of $10 million was the largest in the college’s history but was topped in 2017 by a $37.9 million jointly given by the Kern Family Foundation and the Kern family personally to support reforms in medical education. “
SOME OF KERN’S PROBLEMATIC HISTORY
Kern invisions it’s funding to be “Transformative” and in the past has funded “Teach For America” which is a K-12 focused organization with a MASSIVE LGBTQ focus.
“TEACH FOR AMERICA -TOP ISSUES”
“Embracing Our LGBTQ+ Students, Teachers, and Community”
“Join us as we work for the day when every LGBTQ student has the opportunity for an excellent education and a safe, affirming classroom.”
According to “Influence Watch” and the 2018 KFF tax records:
“The Kern Family Foundation has provided support to public policy organizations, including the right-leaning American Enterprise Institute, Acton Institute, and Wisconsin Institute for Law and Liberty and the left-leaning teacher training program Teach for America.”
KERN FUNDING OF SEMINARIES BEGAN TO SURFACE IN 2009
THE FUNDING WAS TO PROMOTE ACTION INSTITUTE CURRICULUM AND JUSTICE/HUMAN FLOURISHING “FAITH AND WORK ” PROGRAMS .
This site investigated and reported this funding and influence in the 2016 /2017 article series titled “IS THIS THE EVANGELICAL DEEP STATE?” PARTS 1 &2
Kern funded conservative American Seminaries since around 2009 working with Action Institute which is a think tank operated by a radical homosexual activist turned Catholic priest on the “Faith and Work” premise of Hayek economics for the “common good ” of course “HUMAN FLOURISHING”.
KERN RETAINS OVERSIGHT BY OPERATING TIS OWN ORGANIZATIONS WITHIN THE INDUSTRIES IT IS FUNDING.
Oikonomia Network oversees the seminaries Kern funds.
Theology that Works
“Preparing future leaders as disciples who disciple others for a whole life’s work in God’s kingdom and God’s world.”
Kern funding over site by Oikonomia Network and Greg Forster work VERY closely with Tim Keller and the well documented, exposed and problematic TGC/The Gospel Coalition. TGC has infected almost an entire generation of young pastors in what were once Biblical movements.
OIKONOMIA NETWORKS SOCIAL JUSTICE AGENDA
Just a Sample:
“Pastors Must Preach about Economic Justice“
“Speaking out for the cause of the oppressed and exploited is central to being a good pastor. This responsibility is part of the Christian life for all of us, of course; all Christians are called to be prophets, priests and kings, and the office of prophet involves exposing the world’s injustice. But this is particularly important for those who are professional spokespeople for the kingdom of God. The gospel call to repentance from sin becomes trite and superficial if the institutional church is not putting forward a powerful vision of justice that stands in sharp contrast to the darkness and evil of the world.”
KERN’S MEDICAL GRANTS ARE OVERSEEN BY “KERN NATIONAL NETWORK “
Kern Institute for the Transformation of Medical Education oversees the grants in medical schools .
“The Robert D. and Patricia E. Kern Institute for the Transformation of Medical Education was established in early 2017 through a transformative investment to the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) from the Kern family, the Kern Family Foundation, and Stephen and Shelagh Roell. MCW was honored to host these guests in launching the Kern Institute and the Kern National Network for Caring and Character in Medicine (KNN) in a ceremony that was also attended by the founding members from each of the KNN medical schools.”
A video on the Kern Institute for the Transformation of Medical Education website
boast : “COAST TO COAST COLLABORATION OF MEDICAL SCHOOLS”
The Kern medical Mantra is very much like the WOKE Justice mantra used in the transformation of seminaries.

“How Bias Experiences Relate to Burnout and Recruitment/Retention Indicators: Cross-Sectional Survey of Medical Students and Residents at Mayo Clinic Sites || Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Climate Scale for Health Professions Learners.”
“How Bias Experiences Relate to Burnout and Recruitment/Retention Indicators: Cross-Sectional Survey of Medical Students and Residents at Mayo Clinic Sites“
Presenter: Andrea N. Leep, MD, MHPE
“Stakeholder input is critical to continuous improvement efforts, and climate surveys provide an opportunity for organizations to better understand the experiences and perspectives of learners. In this session, we will present results of a cross-sectional climate survey of 1,261 medical students, residents, and fellows conducted in October-November 2020 at Mayo Clinic sites. This survey examined how bias experiences (frequency, sources, types) relate to burnout and key recruitment/retention indicators of interest to academic health centers and explored learners’ reasons for being likely (or not likely) to accept an offer to work at our organization using a human flourishing lens.”
“Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Climate Scale for Health Professions Learners: Lessons from Interprofessional and Interorganizational Collaborative Development“
Presenters: Regina Russell, PhD; Kim Vinson, MD; Andrea Leep Hunderfund, MD, MHPE; Betsy Kennedy, PhD
Health professions learners come from a wide variety of backgrounds and perspectives. Entering classes of students are increasingly diverse and continue to renew and reshape organizations through their influence. Monitoring and addressing the diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) climate for health professions learners is an expected component of student support, program evaluation, and in some cases, accreditation. This panel discussion highlights lessons learned from an interprofessional and inter-institutional collaborative scale development project designed to address this need.”

Building Equitable Access to Mentorship (BEAM): A Mentoring Program that Promotes Success and Sense of Belonging for Students and Faculty
3:15 PM-4:15 PM
“Building Equitable Access to Mentorship (BEAM): A Mentoring Program that Promotes Success and Sense of Belonging for Students and Faculty“
Presenters: Jason W. Stephenson, MD; Elizabeth M. Petty, MD
To advance health equity, medical schools have recognized the importance of building pathways for underrepresented in medicine (URiM) applicants, supporting the academic success of URiM students, promoting practices that support inclusion, and increasing health equity/social justice curriculum. At the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health (UWSMPH), URiM students shared concerns about the lack of URiM faculty role models and mentors who understood their unique needs. In response, we launched the Building Equitable Access to Mentorship (BEAM) program. In this session, we will discuss strategies, operational processes, and lessons learned in creating a scalable and sustainable program that builds equitable and accessible mentorship to advance the success of URiM faculty and students. We will also discuss several avenues for program expansion and partnerships with other stakeholder groups on campus.”
“The KNN aspires to promote human flourishing through the profession of medicine.”
“The KNN will foster caring and character in the profession of medicine through efforts with health professions education, healthcare systems, network partners and society.”
We conduct our work with respect, integrity and authenticity
We embrace inclusion and diversity to advance equity
We support innovation, scholarship and life-long learning
We invest in our partners, collaborators and learners
We strive to ensure that those who work, learn, care and discover in our institutions flourish.

FURTHER DISTURBING LGBTQ + FOCUS IN KERN NATIONAL NETWORK PRIORITIES
KNN head Dr. Maurana is the founding director of AHW- “ADVANCING a HEALTHIER WISCONSIN “. She nominated her replacement who is an award winning LGBTQ+ health advocate.
“Medical College of Wisconsin Doctor Named Notable LGBTQ Executive”
May 1, 2020
“Milwaukee – April 29, 2020 – Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin (AHW) Endowment Director and senior associate dean at the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) School of Medicine Jesse M. Ehrenfeld, MD, MPH, has been named a Notable LGBTQ Executive by BizTimes Milwaukee.”
“Dr. Ehrenfeld was featured as one of Milwaukee’s Notable LBGTQ Executives, a special editorial feature within BizTimes Milwaukee’s April 27, 2020 print and online issue, which profiles LBGTQ executives in the Milwaukee area.”
“He was nominated by Cheryl A. Maurana, PhD, founding director of AHW and senior vice president for strategic academic partnerships at MCW. In nominating Dr. Ehrenfeld for the award, she noted: “In many ways, Dr. Ehrenfeld has dedicated his career to standing up for those who cannot. He is passionate, innovative, and tireless. Milwaukee – and Wisconsin as a whole – should be proud to have welcomed such a leader.”
“Dr. Ehrenfeld is a combat veteran and former U.S. Navy Commander who deployed to Afghanistan during both Operation Enduring Freedom and Resolute Support Mission. For his work in capturing photographs and supporting the lives of LGBTQ people, Dr. Ehrenfeld was recognized in 2015 with a White House News Photographers Association award and, in 2016, with an Emmy nomination.”…
…”For the past decade, Dr. Ehrenfeld has advocated on behalf of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ) individuals. In 2017, he received the Diversity Champion Award from the Tennessee Hospital Association. In 2018, in recognition of his outstanding research contributions, he received the inaugural Sexual and Gender Minority Research Investigator Award from the Director of the National Institutes of Health (NIH).”
“In September 2019, Dr. Ehrenfeld was appointed director of the Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Endowment and senior associate dean at the MCW School of Medicine. As director of AHW, Dr. Ehrenfeld remains focused on the goal of improving the health of Wisconsin residents through sustained dedication to its mission and the quality of all its programs and activities”
NOTE -NIH National Institutes of Health has been led by troubled and discredited exposed Tim Keller friend of Bio-Logos Francis Collins and has an annual budget of some $40 billion dollars. Collins and Dr. Anthony Fauci remain in the spot light as more of the informational controls , coverup, and deceptions of the highly politicized 2020 pandamonium -demic surface. KNN s Dr. Maurana hand picked successor has won NIH award and accolades.
Kern Family Foundation grants and efforts through the KERN NATIONAL FOUNDATION FOR CARING AND CHARACTER IN MEDICINE are seeking to “Transform Medical Education” with the same HUMAN FLOURISHING / DEI/ Social Justice / “COMMON GOOD” METRICS through which they have influenced public education and turned conservative American seminaries into WOKE JUSTICE factories churning out young leaders lost in the narratives of progressive global politics. Our churches- our institutions, our children and yes- even our BODIES and health will likely be paying the price for years to come.
ANOTHER QUOTE FROM NY POST NOVEMBER 16TH 2022
Med schools are even more woke than you think — and your care is at risk
“That means there’s a permanent bureaucracy at most medical schools pushing woke ideology on faculty and students alike. These efforts take away time and money from actual education.”…. “Remember: The AAMC is pushing 100% of medical schools to score 100% in each category, and most are trending in that direction. This doesn’t bode well for the future of health care. Medical schools are broadly lowering standards for admissions, faculty and research while devoting a higher share of resources to political lobbying, politicized bureaucracy and public virtue signaling”….”Why are taxpayers funding schools that only recruit politicized faculty? Why are they paying administrators who fixate on applicants’ skin color? The public deserves to know exactlyhow woke their nearest medical school is so they can pressure it to put education — and ultimately quality of care — ahead of ideology.”
Dr. Stanley Goldfarb, a former associate dean of curriculum at the University of Pennsylvania’s Perelman School of Medicine, is chairman of Do No Harm.
NOTE ALSO – This author and this website have seen first hand and DOCUMENTED the overlapping influence and damage this WOKE JUSTICE is doing to the church and to healthcare and education in Christian education focused ministries “who care for those who care for others” and help disciple medical students in the authors local region. MORE on that to come.
ALONG WITH USING EVANGELICAL FRONT MEN TIM kELLER, JD GREEAR, DAVID PLATT ETC. TO LURE “FAITH DRIVEN INVESTORS” INTO GLOBAL GOALS SCHEMES/SMART CITIES/ AND EQUITABLE FUTURES- THE CHRISTIAN ECONOMIC FORUM IS TRAINING LEADERS FITTED FOR WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM’S “BETTER WORLD”.
Rev Thomas Littleton
The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) is defined by its author WEF head Klaus Schwab : “Now a Fourth Industrial Revolution is building on the Third, the digital revolution that has been occurring since the middle of the last century. It is characterized by a fusion of technologies that is blurring the lines between the physical, digital, and biological spheres.”
In 2017 Schwab book was published – “World-renowned economist Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman of the World Economic Forum, explains that we have an opportunity to shape the fourth industrial revolution, which will fundamentally alter how we live and work.“
CONCERNS OF EXACERBATING INEQUALITY AND FRAGMENTATION.
Schwab goes on to express concerns over an uncertain future if the 4IR is planned for , or in other words well executed and organized…by themselves. “As I discuss in The Fourth Industrial Revolution, there is worrying evidence that recent and upcoming technological advancements may contribute to higher levels of unemployment, exacerbate inequality, and fragment communities both across and within countries.”
Schwab sees the “multi-sector” approach which has always proven irresistible to socialist central planning as one of the key answers to the problem of inequality and fragmentation. He then calls upon faith leaders to engage.
SCHWAB ADDRESS HIS VIEW OF RELIGIONS ROLE IN THE REVOLUTION.
“The engagement of religion and faith leaders in defining the moral framework of the fourth industrial revolution is therefore essential. Faith is the most powerful force guiding societal and economic interactions, and it is the source of moral and ethical guidance for individuals and communities. In order for us to increase levels of religious literacy and appreciate better the complex ontologies that link religion, technology and society, we need nuanced, constructive conversations among religious leaders and with their followers about the ethical standards that should apply to emerging technological innovations. Only then can we start to discern a common, positive, and coherent narrative that overcomes the fragmenting power of technology in favor of its unifying elements.”
SCHWAB GOES ON TO ADD: “While interreligious dialogue is occurring in many ways, in many places and on many topics around the world, there is still much to be done to raise awareness regarding the importance of engaging with different religions. In addition, efforts must also be made to increase the general sensitivity towards, and knowledge of, religious beliefs and doctrines, which are often portrayed as diametrically opposed.”… “Perhaps the core challenge facing those engaged in this task is that negative, violent and intolerant behaviors are often linked to the practice of religion in media headlines. Shared messages of peace, equality, and tolerance are thus overshadowed by reports of extremist and violent behaviors.”
SCHWAB CALLS ON FAITH LEADERS TO ENGAGE AND TRAIN: ” World Economic Forum has recognized the significance of faith and values in guiding societal and economic interactions. As the International Organization for Public-Private Cooperation, the Forum engages leaders of diverse faith traditions to contribute to multi-faceted and nuanced discussions of economic, social, and political development. .. The Forum’s Global Agenda Council on the Role of Faith is developing a toolkit for business and government leaders to encourage a deeper understanding of the impact religion and faith have on society, extending invitations to governments and companies to engage religious people more openly in world affairs and key ethical debates.”
SOME OF WEF DOGMA OF DISRUPTION
So what is disruptive innovation?
“The theory goes that a smaller company with fewer resources can unseat an established, successful business by targeting segments of the market that have been neglected by the incumbent, typically because it is focusing on more profitable areas.”
“The theory goes that a smaller company with fewer resources can unseat an established, successful business by targeting segments of the market that have been neglected by the incumbent, typically because it is focusing on more profitable areas.”
“Disruption happens when the incumbent’s mainstream customers start taking up the start-up’s products or services in volume. Think Blockbuster and Netflix.”
DISRUPTION DEMANDS NEW KIND OF LEADERS-LEAVING DRUCKER FOR WEF.
The dogma says “disruption demands new kinds of leadership”- so Christian Economic Forum agrees and responds :
“MOVING BEYOND MANAGEMENT THEORY (PETER DRUCKER & LEADERSHIP NETWORK) TO UNDERSTANDING CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP IN THE AGE OF DISRUPTION .”
The author of the Christian Economic Forum article confirms that this new alignment with the World Economic Forum’s call for “Leadership Training” is the “next phase” beyond the Frankfurt School inspired and pervasive influence in the church for almost four decades by Leadership Network / Peter Drucker/ Bob Buford. The church has been primed to follow European Socialist and Cultural Marxist economic theory and is now “moving beyond management theory to follow dead on the heels of World Economic Forum with not even so much as a blink of an eye.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? –This means THAT THE TRAINING/ COACHING / AND DISCIPLING of pastors under Leadership Network which brought pastors churches and even entire denominations under the impact of Drucker’s “MANAGEMENT THEORY” are now moving lock step with THE organized global kingdom mankind has ever aspired to build and is inspired and animated by the spirit of anti-christ.
CHRISTIAN ECONOMIC FORUM/DAVOS FOR CHRISTIAN LEADERS -RESPONDS TO THE CALL FOR TRAINING MORE EVANGELICALS IN THE DOCTRINES OF WEF.
“No industry or organization is immune to the impact of the 4th Industrial Revolution. In our quest to be effective leaders, how do we develop a biblically-based approach to appreciate what has gone before and what has worked, whilst keeping an eye towards the future as we build a new paradigm for leadership that is capable of meeting the challenges we face today?”
“Christian Leadership in the 4th Industrial Revolution: Equipping and Enabling Christ-Followers to Lead in the Age of Disruption.”
“4IR is forcing us to face challenges without precedent in human history. Disruptive technologies are themselves converging and accelerating (i.e., artificial intelligence converges with mechanics and things that move to create robotics). Technological acceleration is driving and being driven by a host of VUCA factors that can include climate change, pandemics, globalization, and the rise of populism, trade wars, immigration, the changing notions of work, and technology unemployment. As a result of the stress caused by 4IR and the scarcity of natural resources, global conflicts will continue to worsen. These challenges require a fundamental transformation of leadership and followership because the leadership models that worked in the past are insufficient to face the current situation. Without clearly recognizing it, corporate and public leaders are challenged by external forces to build a radically new leadership culture from the ground up.”
NOTE -THE NEED ALSO DEMANDS “FOLLOWERSHIP” :the capacity or willingness to follow a leader. THIS MEANS THE SHEEP IN THE CHURCH !
“This new culture of leadership must redefine the leadership paradigm to enable us to deal creatively with rapid change, uncertainty, global interconnectivity, de-centralization, and greater demands for ethics and meaning from members of organizations and institutions. This VUCA environment requires more than just new thinking, new metaphors, new assumptions, and a relook at the values that have been driving our leadership theories to date. What is required is not “retooling,” but rather “transformation” from the ground up. There is no more powerful model for such a paradigm shift than for us as Christ-followers to imitate God as the great Creator. He clearly showed us the way to make order out of chaos in Genesis 1. The leadership revolution in Christendom will not be driven by scientific thinking, quantum physics, chaos, or complexity science. Instead, the global vacuum in leadership is an opportunity for Christ-followers to demonstrate how to lead in a VUCA world by doing what we do best—imitating Christ. The remaining question is, “How are we failing and what can do about it”?”
CHRISTIAN ECONOMIC FORUM BRAZEN ALLIANCE –
Of course some evangelical leaders like Rick Warren and Francis Collins are PROUD AND PUBLIC about their ties directly with the World Economic Forum.
“Rick Warren: Francis Collins And I Became Friends At The Davos World Economic Forum.”
Oct 5, 2021 “Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church, lauds Francis Collins, then the Director of the National Institutes Of Health (NIH), during this November 2020 online chat for the HHS Partnership Center.”
“Shannon Royce HHS Faith Based Partnership leader host Warren and Collins ,This wide-ranging conversation touches on the latest information on COVID-19, pending results from Pfizer and Moderna, and aspects of the vaccines’ research, production, testing, and distribution. Collins and Warren also address the ethical concerns about particular cells lines, as well as the mental health, substance-abuse, and economic challenges that have surfaced.”
Former ERLC head Richard Land and Anne Graham Lotz ( daughter of Billy Graham) have attended WEF meetings as well,, as have other “Christian” leaders.
HHS Partnership Center Special Feature: Dr. Francis Collins + Pastor Rick Warren
CHRISTIAN ECONOMIC FORUM -CALLING FOR GLOBALIZED CHRISTIAN FAITH DIRECTLY UNDER WEF MODEL AND DEFINITIONS-WHILE SHAMELESSLY TWISTING SCRIPTURE AND ADVOCATING FOR GOD HIMSELF.
NOTE : Christian Economic Forum article uses WEF Wheel for Fourth Industrial Revolution article .
“Christ said He came so we might have an abundant life. He came to serve, not to be served. Today we are presented with unparalleled opportunities to create an abundant future. The same VUCA factors that are creating challenges are also creating unparalleled opportunities. What remains to be seen is whether Christian thought leaders today have the capacity to move beyond innovation (which has always been a focus of new companies anyway), through disruption theory (startups challenging the status quo and learning how to do things faster, better and cheaper), to what will bring about fundamental transformation of existing systems. Do we have what it takes to disrupt poverty, pandemics, lack of access to nutritional food, clean water, and energy? Disruptive tech is creating tremendous opportunities. But if our level of consciousness of who we are in Christ prevents us from utilizing the opportunities we have to create a more just and sustainable future, then we’re missing the point entirely. “
“The insanely simple solution is to look at how God created order out of chaos. It starts with creativity:”
“Creativity is part of our mandate as image-bearers. It is easy to overlook the mandate to create contained in Genesis 1:28. But man, as God’s image-bearer (Gen: 1:26-27), is a fundamentally a creative being. Cultivating this creativity is part of our conformity to God’s image.”
“Creativity enables us to apply biblical truths to VUCA situations. The Scripture is our absolute authority Anything that enables us to connect biblical truth to daily life is to be valued. Sometimes applying Scripture is straightforward and obvious. Other times it takes creative thinking to bring the truth to bear upon an everyday life that can be fraught with uncertainty and ambiguity.”
“Creativity enhances our leadership and our ability to minister to others. Creativity is demanded of leaders. Our ability to point the way forward and to encourage people to follow is partly dependent upon our creative ability. Motivation, insight, vision, decision-making, problem-solving—all the traits we associate with leaders—are improved by creativity. Creativity, in other words, is essential for effective leadership in 4IR.”
“Finally, we’re learning that to truly inspire catalytic breakthrough growth, we ourselves have to be “mavericky” and entrepreneurial. Our approach by design must be rooted in a provocative, “all-things-possible with God” perspective that demands radical rethinking, challenges the status quo and calls for us to consistently dig deeper to the place where values are born; to our consciousness. We’ve gone quantum. And that’s exactly how God created the earth.”

TIM KELLER- Keller is one of the most deceptive globalist advocates in modern Christian circles deriving much of “Human Flourishing ” social justice narrative and talking points from think tanks of friends like James Davison Hunter and the Frankfurt School (self admitted ) inspired Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture at University of Virginia .
Tim Keller, the founding pastor of Redeemer in New York City, unpacks the hidden truth of identity formation and what it means to be a spirit-filled investor.

Such men are not qualified for leadership OR for giving financial advice yet Greear even serves on the Board of one of the CEF partners.
“J.D. Greear is the pastor of The Summit Church, in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina.The Summit is characterized by its gospel focus and sending culture. As Pastor J.D. often says, “The gospel is not merely the diving board off of which we jump into the pool of Christianity, it’s also the pool itself.” The deeper we dive into the extravagant love of Christ, the more our lives will be filled with unquenchable joy, reckless generosity, and audacious faith. “

Other Evangelical leaders like Andy Stanley & Andy Crouch are also involved in the promotion of Christian Economic Forum/ Faith Driven Investor/ Entrepreneur .
TRADITIONAL VALUES OF FAITH AND THE “VALUES OF THE REVOLUTION :ARE THEY COMPATIBLE ?
On the surface Schwab leads believers of all faiths to think there is no threat to or conflict from WEF /Global Goals and traditional faith values.
“Perhaps the most important today, however, is the need for inspired intelligence—nourishing our spiritual and creative faculties to ensure that we retain and build a collective moral consciousness that allows us to work together to overcome both common and individual challenges. Religion and faith are not just the wellspring of this consciousness; they also offer rich philosophy and transformative experiences that connect us to the ineffable.”

“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.”

SCHWAB IN HIS OWN WORDS ON THE 4IR
“Schwab argues that this revolution is different in scale, scope and complexity from any that have come before. Characterized by a range of new technologies that are fusing the physical, digital and biological worlds, the developments are affecting all disciplines, economies, industries and governments, and even challenging ideas about what it means to be human.”
“Artificial intelligence is already all around us, from supercomputers, drones and virtual assistants to 3D printing, DNA sequencing, smart thermostats, wearable sensors and microchips smaller than a grain of sand. But this is just the beginning: nanomaterials 200 times stronger than steel and a million times thinner than a strand of hair and the first transplant of a 3D printed liver are already in development. Imagine “smart factories” in which global systems of manufacturing are coordinated virtually, or implantable mobile phones made of biosynthetic materials.”
“The fourth industrial revolution, says Schwab, is more significant, and its ramifications more profound, than in any prior period of human history.”
“He outlines the key technologies driving this revolution and discusses the major impacts expected on government, business, civil society and individuals. Schwab also offers bold ideas on how to harness these changes and shape a better future—one in which technology empowers people rather than replaces them; progress serves society rather than disrupts it; and in which innovators respect moral and ethical boundaries rather than cross them. We all have the opportunity to contribute to developing new frameworks that advance progress.”
Recall that Schwab warns that “exacerbating inequities and fracturedness ” are major concerns to the 4IR and that “Faith Leaders” play a key role in addressing these concerns. So in order to do this for WEF- those Faith leaders and those they are being called to train MUST preach Social Justice , MUST call the church to “INVEST” in Global Concerns like Justice and Climate Change and MUST preach a unified message with WEF and the UN and OTHER RELIGIONS … AND fight “misinformation ” on behalf of THE “MASTER” they have chosen…and that “MASTER” is NOT The Lord of Host.
NY Times promoted the false social justice gospel of “Faith Driven Investors”/ Christian Economic Forum.
HONEST QUESTION :DO THESE “VALUES ” SOUND COMPATIBLE WITH CHRISTIAN FAITH AND DO THE GLOBAL GOALS OF WEF /UNITED NATIONS FALL IN LINE WITH THE GREAT COMMISSION ? ….
IMPOSSIBLE–NEVER – YOUR CANNOT EAT AT GOD’S TABLE AND THE TABLE OF GLOBALIST DEVILS WHO HATE HIM,HIS WORD AND HIS PEOPLE.
Still a “Christian Economic Forum ” also called a “Davos for Christian Leaders ” does exist. It partners with “Faith Driven Investors ” and “Faith Driven Entrepreneurs ” with messengers and employees of BLACKROCK and other global justice driven redistribution and WOKE investing go betweens and firms.
Christian Economic Forum founder Chuck Bentley says “Money Flows Toward Trust”- so the question is “Do you TRUST the WEF or those Christians who are promoting its ideology and open globalist, interfaith, political, economic, governmental surveillance state /GREAT RESET future?
Saints of God wake up and do not be deceived or “invest” in the building of a false kingdom for the god of this world…the prince of the power of the air who stalks the earth seeking whom he can destroy.
BELOVED -THESE SCHEMES ARE FROM THE HEART OF BABYLON AND DESTINED FOR THE FIRES OF JUDGEMENT .
The World Mourns Babylon’s Fall
9 “The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, 10 standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.’
11 “And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore: 12 merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble; 13 and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men. 14 The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all. 15 The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16 and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! 17 For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.’
