Is This The Evangelical Deep State?- Part Two The Evangelical Road to Serfdom

Republishing these articles from 2017 /2018 by request. First published in SBC Today, these revelations of infiltration ,subversion, false vision casting and dirty money shook the Evangelical Deep State and began it’s exposure. See of how Faith Based Partnerships and Social Justice driven “Economics” for the “Common Good ” and “Human Flourishing ” came straight out of Frankfurt School inspired and Vatican led think tanks STRAIGHT into conservative evangelical seminaries and pulpits. Thankfully this long hidden compromise has and continues to be exposed and is faltering.

Silhouettes of three figures meeting among a group of columns

Part One of this article was published on December 18, 2017. Over a month later, interest in the issues raised in the article remains high, and the questions over associations of evangelical leaders like Al Mohler, Tim Keller, Russell Moore, and Marvin Olasky continue to linger. Efforts to dismiss the well documented findings as the “ramblings of a crazed conspiracy theorist” by Ed Stetzer and others have failed to deflect attention on the facts. There are serious problems with the Ethics and Religious Liberties Commission and The Gospel Coalition’s rhetoric and common source of communications with Libertarian think tank, The Acton Institute. SBC and PCA pastors and ministers who have followed the Reformed theological leaders in these circles have little if any clue that they were actually following Jesuit / Catholic Liberation Theology and social policy wrapped in historic Reformed Protestant teaching.

Acton in Evangelical Seminaries

Acton Institute, mentioned in Part One of this research, is headed by Father Robert Sirico, who has a history as a radical “homosexual faith activist.” Acton Institute is celebrated by Philanthropy  Roundtable as a key player since the 1990s in synthesizing religion and democratic capitalism. Acton’s blog boasts such bold goals as rethinking Liberation Theology and Marxism from updated and fresh approaches of application, while oddly accusing Trump supporters of folk Marxism. The ironies run much deeper.

According to the “The New Evangelical Social Engagement” by Brian Steensland and Philip Goff, Acton Institute founder Father Sirico, “’combining free market approaches with Catholic social thought,’ argues that ‘there is no social justice without economic freedom …Instead of a vast welfare state,  social justice is about people fulfilling their responsibilities in justice to their neighbor.’ Therefore, with the support of the Kern Family Foundation, Acton has sponsored curriculum initiatives at thirteen evangelical seminaries.” (p. 63)

These seminaries include Dr. Albert Mohler’s Southern Seminary which sponsors The Commonweal Project.  Note the “Social Gospel” with a strong emphasis on “Social Justice” in this initiative in the videos by Mohler and Os Guinness.  With the help of Acton Institute and over a dozen partners of the same persuasions, Dr. Mohler appears to be endorsing a Rethink of Marxist social policy, while partners like “Poverty Cure .org” – an Acton offshoot – are marketing a RETHINK of Missions to a ”Social Justice” mandate.

Other Reformed seminaries, including the PCA’s Reformed Theological Seminary and Beeson Seminary (now on its third Kern grant since 2015), are also using the Acton-inspired, Kern-funded Social Justice curriculum programs which are designed around the “Faith and Work” ideology famously touted by Tim Keller. Some seminary partners have possibly jumped on board with the popular ideology and trendy nature of the Social Justice mantra; however, “rethinking Liberation Theology” and a fresh approach to “Marxist-inspired ideology” on the part of Sirico / Acton and Mohler / Commonweal Project is a bridge too far to simply dismiss as poorly thought out eagerness for cultural engagement on their part.  

The Kern Family Foundation

The Kern Family Foundation which is very active in funding education at every level is considered to be a well-anchored Christian funding source. However, the Kern website shows that their partners in K-12 “Bright Minds Good Hearts“ program funding include organizations like Teach for America, whose work in K-12 public education includes a well-defined  focus on pro-LGBTQ policy with radical LGBTQ organizations  like Human Rights Campaign, Campus Pride, The Trevor Network and the most radical Gay and Lesbian Straight Education Network (GLSEN). Teach for America also promotes Gay Pride Month with GLSEN in public schools each June, even celebrating the notorious “Dear Colleague Letter” – the pro- transgender bathroom directive from the Obama Whitehouse in May 2016. The current focus of all such pro-LGBTQ efforts in public schools is on showcasing LGBTQ History.

Kern also shows its partnership with liberal education giant Public Broadcasting System (PBS) and the Frankfurt School inspired “Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture,” which is a major influence on Tim Keller and others in the Civilitas Group and Cultural Engagement camp. When asked about the funding in an email exchange on January 15th, the Kern Family Foundation denied the funding in the thirteen evangelical seminaries though it is widely touted in the news, press releases and on the websites (of Southern Seminary’s “Commonweal Project” for example) but Kern contacts did link us to Acton University’s site and confirmed the Acton / Kern Curriculum is in five evangelical universities as well.

Acton Institute and the Confusing Messages of Albert Mohler

Acton Institute’s and Father Sirico’s attachment to the conservative political and religious community is disturbing to Liberals as well. According to a defender of Classical Liberalism, Sirico’s Acton Institute was and is heavily supported by Atlas Foundation, which had been a trusted ally of the Left until it began taking Conservative money.  Sirico’s work with Atlas was not a problem because of his homosexual faith activist history which is recounted in detail in the research. The concern for the Liberal researcher is the recent drift of both Atlas and Acton toward the Right from their historic  “Libertarian values”—which pose no threat to the social agenda of the Left. Sirico had gained the confidence of the Left:

“By 1977 Sirico was listed by the LA Times as the ‘organizer of Libertarians for Gay Rights. When it was later revealed that the ACLU once cooperated with the FBI in building files on radicals Sirico told the Times: ‘We turn out to be to the left of the ACLU.’” 

Incidentally, the Liberal article exposes Father Sirico as being “back in the closet”:

“Acton officials got heavily involved in the debate on gay marriage. With Sirico back in the closet the position they have been taking has been to pander to bigots on the Religious Right.”

“When or if Sirico tried to go back into the closet is hard to determine. But certainly by the time he was taking money from the anti-gay Templeton network it would have been prudent for him to be closeted. Certainly by 1997 Sirico was criticizing another priest for telling his congregation that he was gay. Sirico told the Grand Rapids Press that honesty about the matter was ‘irresponsible’ and that the priest should have kept it a secret between him and a few close friends.”

“Father Sirico is a perfect example. He went from a hard-core libertarian to promoting just the economic agenda. He then started covering up his past and went so far as to try to go back into the closet in regards to his own homosexuality. From pioneering gay marriage, to being silent on it, he now heads an organization with notorious antigay bigots who openly attack gay equality in the name of his organization.” Father Sirico is not the only one who appears to be living in contradiction to himself.

Father Sirico is a Catholic priest who views his Jesuit-inspired Catholic social policy as being “theological” and NOT political. Dr. Mohler says the Catholic Church teaches a false gospel: “During a 2000 television interview on Larry King Live, Mohler said of the Holy See and the Pope: ‘As an evangelical, I believe that the Roman Catholic Church is a false church. It teaches a false gospel. And the Pope himself holds a false and unbiblical office.’”

And during a March 13, 2014 podcast of The Briefing: “Evangelical Christians simply cannot accept the legitimacy of the papacy and must resist and reject claims of papal authority. To do otherwise would be to compromise biblical truth and reverse the Reformation.”

Dr. Mohler has either changed his views on core Catholic teaching or is contradicting himself to the spiritual detriment of the students at Southern Seminary and of the Southern Baptist Convention. These statements are from 2013 which was the same year that the Acton Institute / Kern Family Foundation launched the Catholic Social Justice Curriculum in Southern and 12 other evangelical seminaries.

Moreover, Dr. Mohler “has denounced Pope Francis for moving the Catholic Church to the left and failing, during his address to Congress last autumn, to denounce abortion and gay marriage with the necessary zeal.” Pope Francis being the First Jesuit Pope would certainly support the curriculum of Acton and, true to long-term Jesuit efforts to undermine the Reformation, would be proud to see it in Southern and other Reformed seminaries. Pope Francis also shares the political leanings of a Marxist history with Rev. Sirico.

What does Dr. Mohler think of Marxism?  From his blog, “No, Marxism has been as wrong as it is possible for a theory to be wrong. Addicted to ‘the self-deification of mankind,’ it continually bears witness to what Kolakowski calls ‘the farcical aspect of human bondage.’ Why then was Marxism like moral catnip–not so much among its proposed beneficiaries, the working classes, but among the educated elite? ‘One of the causes of the popularity of Marxism among educated people,’ Kolakowski notes, ‘was the fact that in its simple form it was very easy.’ Marxism–like Freudianism, like Darwinism, like Hegelianism–is a ‘one key fits all locks’ philosophy. All aspects of human experience can be referred to the operation of a single all-governing process which thereby offers the illusion of universal explanation.” Dr. Mohler’s partner Father Sirico describes his journey as “I went to seminary in the early 1980s, when a baptized form of Marxism was next to godliness. When you take all of that into account, my sojourn on the left has about it almost the inevitability of Marxist dialectic.”

Even if Father Sirico and Acton Institute are now truly Libertarian, does this make them compatible partners with the conservative Reformed Christian SBC, ERLC, TGC or Southern and other Seminaries? Mohler has argued that”  libertarianism is idolatrous and as a comprehensive world view or fundamental guiding principle for human life is inconsistent with Christian ideals. He is a proponent of personal liberty, but believes such liberties can run into problems when applied in the political sphere. The more limited economic libertarianism, on the other hand, Mohler says can be consistent with the “comprehensive world view that Christianity puts forward.” (Moody Radio, 3/5/2016). Again to Sirico, his and Acton’s social policy is theological not political or solely economic.

Given the end all be all assertions of the Social Justice mantra to answer human need and provide “Human Flourishing” by Mohler and Sirico, Russell Moore and Tim Keller, Ed Stetzer and every published messenger boy of The Gospel Coalition, are they not all offering the “illusion of universal explanation” in utter contradiction to the Gospel they espouse to be at its center? For all the shaming TGC, ERLC, Keller, Carter and others have done to evangelicals for supporting President Trump and Judge Roy Moore (the Alabama Senate race), it may be fairer to ask if the truly conservative evangelicals and reformed individuals in the SBC and PCA can survive the influence of ERLC, TGC, and the Acton influence in Reformed seminaries? In the case of the Alabama Senate race, Tim Keller, Russell Moore, and Joe Carter have once again aided and abetted the LGBTQ Human Rights Campaign to empower Leftists like Senator Doug Jones who beat Roy Moore the Alabama Senate election.

Father Sirico and Acton Institute have also had a very strong connection to the U.S. State Department, the Intelligence Community and the Vatican. On the Acton Institute Advisory Board was Jesuit Cardinal Avery Dulles, who was “the son of a prominent New York Presbyterian family whose father was John Foster Dulles, Secretary of State under President Eisenhower and whose uncle was Allen Dulles, director of the CIA. “…he had been a convert to Catholicism during his years at Harvard University after having declared himself an agnostic in his first year there….In 2001…Fr. Dulles was elevated by Pope John Paul II to being a Prince of the Church, Avery Cardinal Dulles. He was the first American theologian to be given that title without being made a bishop first.” This history as well make some nervous.

What Color is the Money; Any Green in The Rainbow?

Some would say that, as Christians eagerly seek to engage the world around us, it is easy in today’s culture to inadvertently partner with or fund organizations whose mission may be antithetical to our own. It may fairly be asserted that the motives of some of those involved are only to seek and avail themselves of any open door to inject Christian influence in important areas like education. However, organizations like the ERLC and The Gospel Coalition in partnership with Acton Institute, urge Christians to “disengage the culture” from historic Christian views on moral issues like gay marriage, LGBTQ inclusion, immigration reform, drug legalization, etc., while they are instead expected to “Seek Social Justice”* as the new approach to the all important mission of the Church.  (*example of Acton influence on the same partners in 2010)

IRONICALLY, today’s young pastors in The Gospel Coalition and believers who follow them are trying to escape being viewed as Christian Right Wingers, and choosing to be Social Justice Warriors instead. As they strive to “love well” while “doing community,” they are actually falling for far Left Wing social policy which, in this case, is written by the right wing Heritage Foundation and Libertarian Jesuit / Catholic Acton Institute. It can really give one vertigo to watch the convergence of these political operatives on the unsuspecting Evangelical community.

Considering Libertarian Acton and its founder – Catholic priest, Father Sirico (who refuses to discuss his homosexuality when interviewed) – and millions in funding from the Kern Family Foundation for radical pro-LGBTQ partner, Teach for America, can we simply take their inclusive curriculum in 13 Evangelical seminaries, like RTS, Southern Seminary, Beeson and others, at conservative face value?

Are the commandments and warnings in both Old and New Testaments – “be not unequally yoked with believers” for “two cannot walk together except they are agreed” – null and void for today? Can we walk with God on mission when we and our partners in the quest have so little we agree upon?

More on Why Richard Florida so WRONG? Must the Church Create Bohemia to Succeed?

Among Dr. Mohler’s devout fan base there is a common thread of justifying his every action. In Deep State Part One, the most commonly disputed issue among the many respondents concerned Mohler’s promotion of the books and theories of the pro-LGBTQ Urban Planner, Richard Florida.  

“Florida’s work is not without its critics, but the basic argument he presents is difficult to refute. For the intelligent Christian reader, the book raises several issues. The clustering of creative populations seems to correlate with areas evangelical churches have found difficult to reach.” In Richard Florida’s books, Rise of the Creative Class and Who is Your City, “Creative Class” is a euphemism for “LGBTQ” community. Florida’s theory is that economically disadvantaged cities such as Detroit would experience revival if they were injected with the “creativity” of the LGBTQ community.

The following additional information should put an end to any justification of Florida’s failed ideology of “the Creative Class.” Here are the facts of Florida’s radical pro-LGBTQ concepts.

The main inspiration and mentor for Richard Florida is Marxist urban activist, Jane Jacobs, who was instrumental in the gay rights movement in both New York City and Toronto. Jacobs is a central figure celebrated in LGBTQ urban history. Today LGBTQ history walks are done in her name in cities internationally.

As Senior Editor of The Atlantic Monthly and a co-founder and editor at large of “CityLab,” Richard Florida tracks “Homophobia” by “Mapping” the places it is most prevalent globally. This information is then used to strong-arm cities and regions into taking a more affirming stance on LGBTQ inclusion with grant and economic development funds.

Census number Crunching is done by Richard Florida protégé, Gary Gates of the Williams Institute for LGBTQ Inclusion and Advancement.  Gates submitted a brief in the Obergefell same-sex marriage decision which was cited in Justice Kennedy’s pivotal vote and opinion which made gay marriage legal in the United States, in spite of its complete lack of Constitutional Standing. Gates and Williams take Florida’s Creative Gay Class assertions to major places of influence, including census data gathering. The 2020 U.S. Census is a major focus for this work with Florida’s inclusive goals.

LGBTQ activists remain loyal to Richard Florida’s ideology for obvious reasons. However, Evangelicals who endorse the LGBTQ agenda are essentially asserting that the Church could thrive in Sodom and Gomorrah today if we would only apply the “wisdom of Richard Florida.” Dr. Mohler, Tim Keller, Ed Stetzer and others in The Gospel Coalition need to explain why they encourage our church planters and ministers and Christians in general toward these ideas in any way!  

Acton and the Road to Serfdom: A Closer Look

Valid concerns exist about Acton Institute and the Reformed camp of Evangelicals now guiding the ERLC and The Gospel Coalition, the most obvious of which is the Catholic theology behind Acton’s Social Policy. According to the 2017 Acton conference in Rome, the social justice and economic policies Father Sirico is introducing to Reformed seminaries is a Jesuit contribution and Catholic historians openly assert that the mission of the Jesuits is to undermine the Reformation. Do TGC and ERLC leadership need to be reminded why the Reformation took place and that 2017 marks its 500th anniversary? Did the Reformation not involve theological differences and a divide that is even more profound today than it was 500 years ago?

Acton also has the issue of its being a Libertarian, not a Conservative, political think tank. Do TGC and ERLC claim to promote Conservative theology? If we live out the Gospel should not our social and political engagement involve sharing the Gospel at the core? Why do TGC and the ERLC consistently land on the progressive (left of center) on every single social issue of concern to biblically faithful Christians? This is a very fair question that many in the ranks of the SBC and PCA are asking.  

Acton is a political organization and TGC and ERLC leaders are also acting politically while they shame every believer in their realm for their conservative political engagement. Why is the ERLC located in Washington, DC if not to be engaged politically?Why do Russell Moore and Albert Mohler shame Christians in the Washington Post and other political media? Why is TGC so focused on church planting in and around the Beltway? Are Christians only allowed to engage the culture if we are moving left of center? Is it not political for the Kern funded Curriculum used in Reformed seminaries to be training students in Libertarian, Catholic, Jesuit, recycled Liberation Theology and Social Justice provided by a Political Think Tank like Action Institute? How is this not deceitful? How is it serving the Gospel or preserving and fulfilling the Great Commission?

Acton boasts its inspiration from Friedrich Von Hayek, author of “The Road to Serfdom.” Though the book is often referenced as a source exposing the tyranny of centralized planning and advocating for a free market economy, Hayek’s Fabian Society has a history raising many of the same questions raised by Father Sirico’s liberal history.  According to many historians, Hayek’s book “moved American Conservatives in a more libertarian direction.” The Mont Pelerin Society appeared “when classic liberalism appeared dead” and “Hayek’s movement marked a decisive moment in liberalism resurgence, becoming the Fabian Society of renewed classical liberalism.” (Ayn Rand Cult, Jeff Walker, p. 292). It was the homosexual founder of the socialist Fabian Society, Edward Carpenter, whose book, The Intermediate Sex: A Study of Some Transitional Types of Men and Women, became a foundational text of the LGBT movement of the 20th century. (Socialism and LGBT Rights)

Centralized Planning or Not?

Consider the open collectivism being espoused by Tim Keller in the name of individual faith in action. How is the collective push of the Acton / Kern Curriculum toward a Faith and WorkDoctrine of Vocation and Halftime (the give back ideology of Bob Buford which is a continuation of LBJ / John Gardener’s Great Society), in fact, not centralized planning being done covertly inside the reformed seminary and eventually within the church walls?  

Marvin Olasky, a Senior Fellow of the Acton Institute, is considered the father of Compassionate Conservatism who helped birth the Bush W. era Faith Based Partnership programs. Rev. Sirico seems to be calling for an end to these programs while espousing deeper involvement in Social Justice by evangelicals and Catholics. So whose funding (besides the massive corporate and private foundations) will pay for its expansion? Who gets to hold the purse strings if the funding is to be persuaded out of the churches and believers as they are sold wealth redistribution as a gospel mandate? And where does all of this circular and ideological, economic, theological, sociology, public relations, rebranding, blending of Reformation and Jesuit doctrine of Social Justice end – if not on an evangelical road to serfdom?

And who thinks it is intellectually honest to have taken the approach of a low flying stealth bomber upon trusting and unsuspecting evangelical borders in order to achieve these goals? If these are Gospel-centered mandates, there is no need for sleight of hand or radar masking technology. No shaming of Evangelicals out of even the use of the name “evangelical” or any other classic self-identification Christians may choose to actually identify as being part of the broader body of Christ. There is no need for the use of the same tired talking points to counter vintage Christianity in America and replace it with something devised by Acton or any other think tank in the Western Hemisphere. How is it that this new underground movement is now the historic Christian faith? They continue to tell us we must “rethink” our historic position on every major issue of the day. Which is it? How important is doctrine and theology to those at the ERLC and TGC if they have no caution or discernment about yoking with Acton (Sirico ) and Kern (who funds radical LGBTQ groups through Teach for America) and many other questionable partners? How much does Father Sirico’s reported closet homosexuality influence Acton’s Communications Officer, Joe Carter, who is simultaneously employed by the ERLC and the TGC?

And how do the ERLC and TGC assume we should respond to their efforts to redefine the faith for our families, our churches, our children and our grandchildren? Are we willing to sell the mission of the Church for liberal social justice? Are we blind to the realities Europe is facing with immigration and Islam while our evangelical leaders push for open borders with organizations funded by George Soros and Open Society Foundation? Do partners like Acton, Sirico, or the Kern Family Foundation share any of our biblically (as opposed to culturally relevant) views on human sexuality? Or are we failing to recognize the “beast” we are loosening with sexual liberation in the name of “loving our gay and lesbian neighbors,” Dr. Moore? Can you chart this path for us and for the Body of Christ and be guiltless before man and the Son of Man whose eyes are as a flame of fire and whose Word divides joint and marrow and discerns both the thoughts and intents of the heart?

It seems a moot-point to ask how we got here given all we see the ERLC, TGC, Mohler, Keller and a host of others doing – acting like a rum-soaked Jack Sparrow with a broken compass, attempting to tell us where to find True North. There has never been a set of policies on the part of church leaders and its allies in government, think tanks, Institutes and halls of learning in the US that has so impacted both the mission and doctrine of the church and posed a more clear and present danger to collective religious freedom and living out personal deeply held Christian convictions. The question that remains is how do we, the Body of Christ, recover ourselves from the bondage of this misguided leadership?

Is This the Evangelical Deep State?

Long hidden from men’s view but not from God’s these deceivers now know the judgement Jesus warned on those who attempt to feed on the flock and make themselves enemies of the cross of Christ.

December 18, 2017

By: Rev. Thomas Littleton

Editor SBC TODAY Note: This article’s length is a departure from our typical standard, but we believed it was important for it to appear in its entirety.

By now most of us have heard of former President Barack Obama’s covert operation “Organizing For Action.”  OFA is a shadow government leading the resistance to President Trump’s voter mandated efforts to reverse many if not most of the Obama administration policies.  Such well coordinated efforts by a “Shadow Government” are referred to as “The Deep State.”  Wikipedia defines this type of electorate subversive manipulation thus:  “In the United States, the deep state is an alleged entity that coordinates efforts by government employees and others to influence state policy without regard for democratically elected leadership.”  

The Hand That Rocks the Evangelical Cradle

It shocks no one that the administration which has done more to undermine Constitutional Freedoms in the U.S. would wage a covert war to protect the radical policies it fought to put in place.  What is shocking to many Christians are the radical renovations in and by evangelical leadership touted as a conservative response to Obama era challenges.  In most cases the evangelical responses have proven to aid Obama’s dangerous polices rather than bolster defenses against them.  The talking points in America have suddenly changed.  Clarity over marriage and sexuality has been lost and language obscured in the face of Obergefell and nationwide attempts to open public school bathrooms to the sexually deviant at our children’s expense.

These Obama era policies have also impacted the doctrine of the Christian Church.  The mission of the Church to preach the gospel of eternal salvation has given way to social justice /liberation theology and the Church itself is all but renamed as a “Faith Based Organization.”  But who made these decisions for the Church?  Who has written this new language and why?  Whose unseen hand has orchestrated this overhaul of Christianity?

The Brazenly Contradicted Souls

As a Southern Baptist I will try to fairly assess a few of the players who, in fact, may be more “missional marionettes” than guiding hands.  We will look later at the money and the actual hands in the proverbial Evangelical “Shadow Government.”  The following paragraph may seem absurd at first but should prove to be quite accurate and disturbing.  

Among Southern Baptist and conservative Reformed believers there is no name more trusted than Dr. Albert Mohler.  Dr. Mohler is the long-time head of Southern Seminary in Louisville, KY.  Due to his high office and reputation in the Southern Baptist Convention, Christians may find it hard to believe that Dr. Mohler would promote the pro homosexual ideology of the Obama era.  However, in his promotion of urban ministry, Dr. Mohler also promotes a key player in the radical Human Rights Campaign’s LGBTQ “Equality and Inclusion” movement.  “Absurd!” you may say.  Yet facts do not lie; they are stubborn and inconvenient truths which often show the accepted wisdom to be false.

In 2008 Dr. Mohler (echoing a host of evangelical underlings) began to promote a key Urban Planning strategist, Richard Florida.  Author of Rise of the Creative Class and Who is Your City, Florida is among the Human Rights Campaign’s favorite players in the pro homosexual Municipal Equality Index (MEI).  Dr. Mohler offered this hearty endorsement of Richard Florida’s openly pro homosexual /inclusion of the LGBTQ “Creative Class” as necessary for success in Urban Planning and Community Development:

“Florida’s work is not without its critics, but the basic argument he presents is difficult to refute.  For the intelligent Christian reader, the book raises several issues.  The clustering of creative populations seems to correlate with areas evangelical churches have found difficult to reach.  The creatives are clustered in more secular regions of the nation.  All this should underline one major aspect of our Great Commission challenge in America and around the world.”

Now place this passionate endorsement of Richard Florida by Dr. Mohler alongside the assertions of Richard Florida himself in the 2017 HRC Municipal Equality Index.

“In short, LGBTQ equality is a moral imperative that pays—one that’s even more important than ever given the recent unprecedented rollback of hard won LGBTQ federal protections.  The Municipal Equality Index highlights laws and policies that cities can use to make their community more LGBTQ-inclusive.  It assesses cities on their non-discrimination laws, LGBTQ-inclusive employee practices, inclusiveness in city services and law enforcement; and their leadership’s outspoken commitment to equality.  Taking these steps can help cities not only do the right thing, but create fairer economic opportunity for all.”

Either Dr. Mohler has failed to read the books he is reviewing here or he is endorsing Richard Florida’s pro homosexual assertions.  Mohler’s admission that Florida’s pro LGBTQ concepts are “not without critics” would indicate he is aware of enough of them to know they are controversial and yet he concludes “the basic argument is hard to refute.”  I have mentioned Richard Florida in a previous writing but other evangelical leaders have failed to match the Mohler infatuation with Florida’s LGBTQ Equality and Inclusion CULT.   

The argument will be made that Dr. Mohler was not endorsing Florida’s pro-homosexual ideology but rather is exhorting the Church to fulfill the Great Commission via ‘city reaching.’  However, why then did Mohler outright abandon Reparative Therapy or so called “ex gay therapy” at the ERLC 2014 conference on “Homosexuality and the Future of Marriage” at the very time municipalities are working hard to pass local laws prohibiting and criminalizing such counseling with the broadest definition, including any NON AFFIRMING counsel on the part of PASTORS, Church counselors , Christian school counselors and EVEN PARENTS?  These city and county efforts to please, appease, and make the grade for the Human Rights Campaign Municipal Equality Index are an LGBTQ shakedown.

Personal commentary:  Dr. Mohler, in your sweeping rejection of conversion therapy and withdrawal of support for ministers and ministries working with those who wish to find help from the church to leave homosexual desires behind them, you have given GREAT occasion to the enemies of the Gospel to deny those “strugglers” the help THEY need and often seek as these laws would turn a pastor or a parent into a criminal in the eyes of local courts for offering Biblical Counseling to a /their child.  A classic case of throwing the proverbial baby out with the bathwater by an evangelical leader who spends more time doing book reviews and cultural posturing than in the life trenches under live fire from fallout.  Can you admit the LGBTQ agenda is taking you and us farther than you anticipated and that you have failed to offer the conservative leadership Christians look to YOU for?  By endorsing Richard Florida, abandoning Reparative Therapy and offering the rhetoric of appeasement have you played into the hands of the Gay Lobby, sir?

Strange, Dare I Say It …”BEDFELLOWS”

Mohler protégé Dr Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist ERLC has been on the hot seat for some time among evangelicals who are paying attention to ERLC doublespeak and guilt projection on all issues related to Christian ethics and cultural engagement.  The recent Nashville Statement offered great face saving opportunity on the LGBTQ issue for Moore, but his recent speech at the Acton Institute’s Acton University sheds unsettling light on the SBC leaders’ hidden ties and may point to the powers behind the Moore / Mohler enigma.  

The Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty has long been at the forefront of cultural concern in the realm of religion.  Its mission statement boasts “The Acton Institute is a think tank whose mission is to promote a free and virtuous society characterized by individual liberty and sustained by religious principles.”

Admittedly, Religious Principles is a broad term so it is only fair to ask which religion and whose principles are referred to.  The best clue would be to look at Acton’s leadership.  Its President is Catholic priest, Robert Sirico, and here is where some shocking revelations come into view.  Rev. Sirico being a Catholic is reason enough for concern by some about the Acton/ Moore association but this ecumenical partnership pales in comparison to Rev. Sirico’s seldom mentioned past career.

Russell Moore and The Acton Institute’s “Gay Activist” Leader

According to Wikipedia  and the gay pride historic book “Gay Seattle Stories of Exile and Belonging” by Gary L. Atkins, (page 161 and over a dozen mentions of Sirico in the second half of the book), in the 1970s, Robert Sirico was at the forefront of the gay activist movement in several cities on the West Coast.  According to Atkins, Sirico was a major force in the “Pulpits of Healing” (chapter 9) movement to bring the homosexual community into acceptance in the Christian Community and in the churches. Sirico was raised on Coney Island but found his home among the radical West Coast homosexual rights movement on the cutting edge of its push for acceptance in the faith community.  Only after Sirico left the area and a new Bishop came into power did this effort begin to payoff in the Catholic Diocese.  By this time, Sirico was planting gay churches as part of the first homosexual denomination, Metropolitan Community Church.  Sirico went from Pentecostal faith healer to homosexual activist pastor after admitting his homosexual desires since 13 years of age.  In today’s culture he would be considered an LGBTQ Faith Activist which is a well paid career for thousands given the hundreds of millions annually funding the LGBTQ Equality organizations.  

“Sirico was ordained a Pentecostal minister and established a healing ministry in Seattle around 1970/71.  He became very popular and gained the support of several charismatic churches in the area.  A foundation was established for the financial support of his ministry.  During this time, according to Sirico, he believed that homosexuality was condemned by the Bible as a perversion.  However, he soon found it ‘impossible’ to heal a person from being gay.  He eventually made a public announcement that he was gay himself and intended to form a church for gays.  This led to him losing the support of his healing ministry’s backers.

“In 1972, Sirico founded Seattle’s Metropolitan Community Church, which primarily ministered to gays. The church became a member of the Metropolitan Community Church (MCC).[7]  MCC had been founded in 1968 as ‘the world’s first church group with a primary, positive ministry to gays, lesbians, bisexual, and transgender persons.’

“In April 1973, Sirico and the MCC picketed the Seattle Police Department, claiming there was a ‘vendetta’ by the Seattle Police Department against homosexuals.  In October 1973, Sirico was arrested in Seattle for ‘walking in the roadway’ after crossing the street to come to the aid of a gay man he saw was being arrested.  In jail, Sirico was reportedly singing ‘We Shall Overcome’ until he was bailed out by a parishioner.  The citation was later struck down at trial and Sirico was let off with a warning by the judge.

“In July 1973, Sirico went to lead the newly founded Metropolitan Church of Cincinnati.

“Sirico was a proponent of gay marriage and performed same-sex marriages as a Protestant minister. In 1975, Sirico performed the first gay marriage in the history of Colorado at the First Unitarian Church in Denver.

“Sirico left Seattle for Los Angeles, where he became the director of the Los Angeles Gay Community Center.  In 1976, police conducted a raid at one of the center’s events, a ‘male slave auction.’  Sirico stated the event was merely a fundraiser for the center and that the police raided it in order to ‘discredit the image of gay people in this community for legislative gains.’”

Most important to note that after a time Robert Sirico made a return to the Catholic Church of his youth.  He speaks in many places of a political and ideological conversion but makes NO MENTION of a change in his bold self-identifying as a homosexual or his radical faith activist role in the embryonic days of the gay rights movement.  In a 2010 interview, Father Sirico was asked by a conservative Catholic writer about his homosexual /activist/ gay clergy history.  His response was suspiciously evasive:

“An agreement with a professional journalist to whom I have been giving a series of interviews about the details of this journey prevents me from cooperating in any kind of profile of my life with you.  I can,

however, respond to a number of your questions for the article you are writing which do not compromise this agreement.”

Sirico’s move across the ideological and political landscape is significant because, as we will see, he moved from ultra-liberal to Libertarian, whose policies mostly ignore moral and social issues like homosexuality and abortion, instead focusing on economic policy and smaller government.  There’s no need to even speak to the issue of his radical past in the Libertarian camp.  It is a non-issue.  What IS an ISSUE is the role which we will soon see that Sirico’s organization plays in the CONSERVATIVE camp of the Southern Baptist and Presbyterians and among Reformed evangelicals.

It may seem unfair from an evangelical perspective to “judge” Rev. Sirico by his youthful past but the present mood among Catholic researchers considers this activist’s past serious enough to look longer and harder at his organization, Action Institute, and his ordination as a Catholic Priest in 1987.  There have been numerous and persistent voices of concern over Sirico’s ordination to the Priesthood given his admitted homosexuality and radical past. His defiant statements like “two men in bed together is a holy experience… to hold one another close and confess together, Isn’t God Wonderful?” (Gay Seattle, page 162)  The author goes on to say “Sirico refused to beg for understanding.”

Given that the ERLC Russell Moore is a speaker at Acton Institutes and his has even deeper (as we shall see) associations  with Father Sirico, it would appear to be more than fair to ask if this has ANY INFLUENCE on Moore’s message for the ERLC on homosexuality?  What is the ERLC/ Moore’s position on the radical history of Rev Sirico?  He does not answer?  Will our Southern Baptist spokesperson ANSWER?  

Sirico’s past causes great concern among conservative Catholics. Here are several examples of their research.

Catholics Concerned About Father Robert Sirico

Randy Engels has written extensively on concerns over the Catholic Church welcoming and ordination of homosexuals to the priesthood.  Her 5 volume series on this subject is titled The Rite of Sodomy: Homosexuality and the Roman Catholic Church.

Further research specific to Father Robert Sirico can be found here and here and another writer Thomas Herron here.  In “Robert Sirico and the Sins that Cry to Heaven for Vengeance” are found more recent activities including efforts to alter / protect the history of Russell Moore’s ally, Rev Sirico.

There are several “accounts of Rev Sirico’s conversion” according to Engel but most speak to his political conversion, such as, “In the early part of the decade, Sirico held Left-leaning political and economic views, even becoming involved with Jane Fonda and Tom Hayden and their campaign for economic democracy.  However, after reading Friedrich von Hayek’s The Road to Serfdom and Milton Friedman’s  Capitalism and Freedom, he became a libertarian.”

Sirico wrote about his journey from leftist politics to free-market economics: “I suppose the fact that I spent time on the left of the political spectrum isn’t the surprising thing.  I mean, I’m a New Yorker; I’m a child of the ’60s; I went to seminary in the early 1980s, when a baptized form of Marxism was next to godliness.  When you take all of that into account, my sojourn on the left has about it almost the inevitability of Marxist dialectic.”

Do Roman Catholics Speak for The ERLC and The Gospel Coalition When Communication is KEY?

You may say that Catholics and Evangelicals have long and helpful history partnering on social issues like abortion and marriage but these are conservative – not Libertarian – shared values. The common ground would then appear to be the issue of “social Justice” and NOT theological partnerships. However, Father Sirico is not a conservative socially or politically and, according to his 2002 booklet “Catholicism’s Developing Social Teaching” (page 19), Sirico boasted that Catholic social policy IS THEOLOGY, not political policy” So is Russell Moore’s partnering the ERLC with Acton Institute also an adoption of or endorsement for Catholic Theology on Social Policy?  Fair Question?  According to Father Sirico, Moore IS doing so.

To look closer and better understand the ties between the SBC’s Russell Moore, Al Mohler and other Evangelicals with Father Sirico and his Acton Institute, one need look no further than Joe Carter.  A former military guy, Joe is a prolific writer and Senior Editor for the Acton Institute and Rev Sirico. Where it becomes strange and unsettling is that Carter is also an editor for The Gospel Coalition, according to the Acton bio, as well as Editor and Communications Specialist “go to guy” for the Russell  Moore-led Southern Baptist Ethics & Religious Liberties Commission.

THINKING THIS THROUGH together for a moment… Joe Carter came to the ERLC soon after Russell Moore’s ascent and radical altering of the standard conservative Southern Baptist messaging on key topics, especially LGBTQ issues.  Carter serves as ERLC “Communications Specialist” while he still holds his Senior Editor job with Rev. Robert Sirico – the once radical left wing, Marxist gay activist Pentecostal (later) gay church pastor and founder of Metropolitan Community Churches (the world’s first gay denomination), who conducted some of the nations first gay marriages and boasted he would perform exorcisms to rebuke the heterosexual spirits from his opposition – who is now a Catholic Libertarian priest.  If that is not disturbing we are simply NOT paying attention!  Carter has also worked in high level editing positions with at least two other Catholic publications according to his biography.

The Gospel Coalition – Is This an Evangelical Progressive Movement Cloaked in Conservative Theology?

Currently there is immeasurable fallout over what appears to be a theological divide among Southern Baptists.  Joe Carter is an Editor for The Gospel Coalition as mentioned above.  This movement encompasses the Reformed camp of the SBC which has grown in number at least among young pastors under the leadership of Dr. Mohler and includes much of the heretofore conservative Presbyterian breakaway group – the PCA.  The TGC movement also includes smaller reformed denominations and groups along with independents like John Macarthur and his vast network of affiliated churches.  Formed around 2005, TGC is headed by then PCA rising star Tim Keller and D.A. Carson.

While The Gospel Coalition’s opening statement of its founding documents sounds great, a sobering consideration of its connections with Acton Institute and often progressive stance on conservative issues makes it reasonable to question why TGC is promoting a Liberation Theology of social justice and a biblically baseless “Theology of Place.”  Add to this Joe Carter’s prolific messaging (TGC blog currently has 336 entries by Carter and at one point earlier this year was over 650 items by Carter) and it is a very honest assessment to say that Acton Institute and the radical Father Sirico have a huge reach into the Reformed camp of evangelicals, including the SBC and PCA.

Can we Biblically Judge the Tree by its Fruit?

Plainly put, a Libertarian, Catholic, political Institute founded by a controversial priest who helped birth the modern extreme radical West Coast homosexual rights movement and its invasion of the Christian faith community while working as a Pentecostal “Faith Healer” with Marxist leanings, a record of arrest and an “in your face” homosexual, founding gay churches and conducting some of the nation’s first gay marriages, is helping if not outright scripting the message of Reformed SBC (ERLC) /PCA / TGC Evangelicalism.  If this is not a problem in our thinking then we do not understand that the battle for the soul of our culture is not waged with the liberal social justice mantra that TGC and these intoxicated talking heads like Russell Moore are regurgitating while espousing its loss.  Rather, that battle for the “collective soul” of the church and our culture is a battle of words and ideas, to be waged with the eternal Word of God and the inspired message rooted firmly in God’s WORD.

Isn’t wrapping your progressive transformational strategies in conservative theological positions while promoting the message of a Libertarian, Catholic, former (?) radical homosexual activist akin to being a confidence man or a street hustler for TGC and ERLC?  How is it NOT?  These organizations have captivated a generation of young preachers and, with the advent of social media and a hearty web presence, the contorted message of the new evangelicalism has spread like wildfire.  Who has vetted this message or its source or the strange affiliations in this transformational dance club? What toxic stew comes from brewing these ideologies together for a bowl of which the evangelical leaders in the reformed camp appear to willing to sell not only their birthright but also that of our denominations and our children’s future church?  How is this considered kosher to a Holy God with a long history of rejecting mingled offerings?

Given that 2017 is the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation, the tangible irony here is almost suffocating.  If Catholic conservatives are concerned about Father Sirico and his corrupt influence in the Catholic Church then Evangelicals ought to take note of the DEEP STATE inroads made by a VATICAN policy, US-based Think Tank among SBC and PCA leaders!

What Other Bonds Abound?

The key to understanding the tie that binds these bedfellows is the work of Acton Institute in the area Social Justice.  According to the November 29th 2017 Acton Institute Conference in Rome, Globalization and Social Justice are movements the Jesuits to which have long contributed and inspired the church toward addressing.  Today’s Social Justice mantra, whether chanted by liberal humanist “Christians,“ conservative Reformed, Catholic or interfaith participants, is INSEPARABLY LINKED  with “the City Reaching movement,” cultural narrative realignments (a kinder/ gentler Christian “civility”), urban growth , “church planting,” and White House Faith-Based Partnerships.  In short, Social Justice is the new gospel and, if your leadership complies, it is becoming Big Business for the church.

Olasky’s Rules for Compassion

Marvin Olasky is a powerful influence on evangelicals as editor-in-chief of World Magazine.  He is also a Senior Fellow at the Acton Institute.  Olasky’s history intersects with virtually all of the major ideologies corrupting the evangelical church.  The biography of Olasky at NNDB states that he was born of a Jewish family, was an avowed atheist (at 14), a Marxist in High School and a “card carrying communist” as they used to say, in college.  Like Sirico, Olasky’s political views changed mid life but in the case of Olasky, a spiritual conversion is professed.  However, his Marxist ideologies may not have changed on his spiritual journey, given his role with Sirico and the Faith-Based ideology.  It is said that Olasky’s book  on “The Tragedy of American Compassion” inspired  George W Bush’s compassionate conservatism branding and the Faith Based Partnerships first  in Texas under then Gov Bush.

“In January 2001, [Olasky] saw the policies outlined in this book put into law with the creation of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives.  George W. Bush has called him ‘compassionate conservatism’s leading thinker’; in 1999, Olasky had chaired an advisory subcommittee on religion and public policy for the then-governor.’”

Acton and Sirico have played a major role as well in the hard sell of Faith-Based Partnerships, especially during the formation of the Obama administration under whose directives the LGBTQ compromises were hard wired into the programs and these directives have not changed under the Trump administration.

Although Olasky is credited with having inspired Compassionate Conservatism, the concept goes back to the mid 19th century with Fredrick Stahl‘s “Living Conservatism.”  Stahl successfully persuaded Austrian and European Protestants to abandon their conservative convictions on the basis of a proposed softer approach to social issues while European Socialism took root.  History appears to be repeating itself aided by the familiar talking points.  Stahl, like Olasky was another person born into a Jewish family who converted to Christianity and, in Stahl’s case, history now bears out that he used his influence to weaken Christians in the evangelical churches in Prussia.  The jury is out for now regarding Olasky’s influence, however, his work with Sirico/ Acton and Faith Based Partnerships does not bode well for the Evangelicals over whom he exerts tremendous influence.  One of those under the influence is Tim Keller.  A closer look will help you decide for yourself.

Civil City Utopian Prophets and The Funding Machine

The following collaborations outlined as bullet points show the depths of Faith-Based involvement of Tim Keller and other evangelicals and institutions.  Several have been mentioned in previous articles without mention of the role Acton played in them.

  • Leading up to the 2009 infusion of untold billions of tax dollars by the Obama administration into the Faith Based Partnership overhaul – Tim Keller (page 80) and Friends, including the Acton Institute, worked with a Faith Based Partnership model in Orlando called “Seeking the Welfare of the City” (STWOTC) which resulted in the Polis Institute.  Richard Florida’s pro homosexual ideology was promoted by the Human Rights Campaign and Albert Mohler played a key role (page 76) as has the Acton Institute.  Acton still heavily promotes the “Welfare of the City” concept which centers around Faith Based Partnerships.  If participants like churches and ministries want to find funding to “save their cities” through Community Development grants, they must be inclusive and welcoming of one of the more destructive influences within the communities they are asserting they wish to help.  The erosion of the family and sexual liberation are two of the most compelling issues urban centers face.  

Even more broad reason for concern is that the Presbyterian Church of America’s (Tim Keller’s denomination) Reformed Theological Seminary was at the forefront of this STWOTC program development while both students and graduates helped in the implementation and the operation of Polis Institute.  It now serves as an Urban laboratory of sorts for training future generation church leaders.

  • As discussed in previous articles, the new mantra for evangelicals is “Civility.” Tim Keller, Rick Warren, three Christian universities, and a host of Faith Based Partnership players have convened and covenanted to “change the tone in the church toward homosexuals” and other minority groups.  Given the inclusion of pro-gay urban planning in the new wave missional strategies and the agreement to change the conversation among church folk as they are “mobilized” for faith based partnerships, it is little wonder that The Gospel Coalition and denominational groups like the ERLC want someone like Father Sirico and Acton Institute to provide the talking points for the flock.  Whether current or simply historical, Sirico would have great insight into how to make inroads into faith communities having done so in the 1970s.  Inclusive inroads are requisite if the hopes of obtaining Faith-Based Partnership grants are to be realized.  

Are Money Changers Funding Acton and an Evangelical Deep State?

  • Another major player in what appears as an Evangelical Deep State is the National Christian Foundation of Alpharetta GA.  According to its history with Conservative Transparency and a 2016 990 forms /report, the NCF has brought about $6 Billion into its Christian philanthropy circles since 2011 (page 15 of the 990 shows $1,396,381,203 in 2016 alone.)  On requesting NCF to provide its donor and recipient list and history, the organization refused to supply any information whatsoever.  Various philanthropic sites do track some of the money and its sources, but given that NCF is a “Donor ADVISED fund,” the agreement upon giving is the intention of the donor is to be recognized but not required in the distribution.  What the Conservative Transparency tracking shows is that NCF giving in large part goes to political organizations like Acton Institute, Heritage Foundation, and a variety of organizations, many being Libertarian like Acton instead of conservative Christian organizations or ministries.  NCF helps coordinate giving for the Frankfurt School / Marxist-inspired Civilitas Group in which Tim Keller and Rick Warren serve as Board Members.  

Several left-wing exposés have been done of NCF, one by Mother Jones and another, ironically, by an LGBT activist group Two Care Center Against Religious Extremism.  These researched articles show NFC again funding more politically focused organizations than ministries.  (Acton is not on the LGBT investigation list perhaps by design.)   AGAIN many of these organizations share the Libertarian views of Acton and are NOT Biblical, conservative groups.  According to these reports, a great deal of the funding moves back and forth from NCF State Chapters and the national offices of NCF and lands back in the hands of local State Policy Institutes which are sister organizations of Acton.  

A major common thread is the political Libertarian ideology and shared goals of encouraging Faith Based Partnership participation and engagement in the “Gospel of Generosity” and “philanthropic giving movement” touted by Tim Keller and other TGC partners as one of the arenas needing cultural redemption.  A similar organization with shared influence from NCF founders admit to their inspiration from Charles Sheldon’s novel “In His Steps “ and it’s Social Justice mantra.  Admission that the concept needed a Theology to maintain it begs the classic question which came first… the theology or the ideology that it supports?  As with Acton and Rev. Sirico the answer is clear.  To sell the ideology, the two must be presented as one.  Is this an honest approach for objective Biblical teaching for fundraising?

A local NCF chapter in the Midwest has as its head a pastor who (according to his ordaining denomination, The Assemblies of God) has an “unusual ministry” as he pastors a church with five different addresses, one of which is an empty lot and no congregation or regular weekly service. This pastor was brought to our region to speak at a pastoral conference last year about Faith-Based Partnerships AND Philanthropy / NFC giving.  Again he has no certain address/ often no weekly service / and from social media indicators – little or no congregation.  Who is vetting these people?

Who Cares? You Should!

Should the church be concerned that conservative denominations like the Southern Baptist Convention and the PCA have shared Public Relations/Editing and message coordination (Joe Carter) with Acton Institute?  Should conservative Christians not be made aware that our public policy spokesmen like Russell Moore of the ERLC and influential movements like The Gospel Coalition have these strong ties to Acton?  Is this influence of a Libertarian /Catholic political policy organization founded by a priest, Father Robert Sirico, who has a long undisclosed history of LGBTQ radical activism, a concern for evangelicals? It still causes concern among informed conservative Catholics!

Since 2012 a marked departure from classic Evangelical conservative stance has taken place and Russell Moore, Tim Keller and others have been peddling the new, more civil, culturally relevant tone on social issues.  Given that their partners, like Acton and Sirico, all share the goals of harnessing Christian giving while  promoting a  Social Gospel and Faith Based Partnerships (FBP) it is fair to ask, “WHY?”

Marvin Olasky, crowned the father of the Bush FBP agenda, later heavily funded and loaded with LGBTQ activism in the Obama years, provides conservative Christians with unquestioned news “from a Christian world view” in World Magazine.  Perhaps he should answer for his Fellowship with Acton Institute and Father Sirico knowing the LGBTQ infiltration of these circles and the programs he (Olasky) promotes.  

Would Albert Mohler, the highly regarded head of Southern Seminary and SBC/ TGC/ evangelical leader clarify exactly what part of Richard Florida and HRC’s pro gay urban planning he believes is so vital for the church that he endorses it along with other strategies of the homosexual agenda.  There is little else in the Florida rhetoric except a heavy dose of Cultural Marxism. So what is the Appeal and what part of the ideology are we as the church to follow if NOT its push for LGBTQ “inclusion”?

Tim Keller, please tell us what is Biblical about the Marxist Frankfurt School or the socialist Vienna Circle under whose influence you have fallen?  How far does “human flourishing, redeeming culture, and thriving cities” go in the churches before the Gospel is lost in the process of promoting human wisdom and compromise for the common good?   

If possible it would help all conservative believers if any or all of you would step up and explain to those struggling to raise families, be faithful (even if not “relevant”) in their faith in and to the culture and the workplace in the MOST CHALLENGING TIMES Christians have ever faced in our nation. The doublespeak which would appear scripted by Acton Institute IS NOT HELPING!

Why Action, Sirico, Carter?  Why Faith Based Tax Funds?  Why would you knowingly or ignorantly partner to offer this pagan brew and strange fire on Evangelical altars?  Is this an Evangelical Deep State – operating behind the scenes?  Please simply respond to the “Christian on the street” whose churches and families and futures your influence directly impacts!   Those who mislead the Church ought to heed the warning of James while there is yet time to repent.  ”My brethren, be not many teachers, knowing that we shall receive the severer judgement” James 3:1.  Voices asking for accountability may seem faint and obscure while drowned out by the massive load of finely tuned and edited Rhetoric of Acton evangelical affiliates like ERLC/TGC …. BUT given time and the fact that God’s flock have a better handle on Biblical truth than some suppose, those voices may not seem so faint for very long.

BAPTIST ERLC AFFIRMS MUSLIM RELIGIOUS FREEDOM AMBASSADOR FOR US.

THE ERLC SANK TO MANY NEW LOWS UNDER FORMER ACTIVIST PRESIDENT RUSSELL MOORE INCLUDING ITS CLOSE ASSOCIATIONS AND ENDORSEMENT OF THE PRO LGBTQ MOVEMENT REVOICE AND PARTICIPATION IN THE SOROS FUNDED NATIONAL IMMIGRATION FORUM. NOW ERLC ENDORSES ISLAMIC OBAMA ERA ENVOY.

Rev. Thomas Littleton

1-3-2022

The Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberties Commission has once again decided that U S Islamic interest either outweigh or are compatible with their own job working to protect the religious freedoms of Christians . Former ERLC head Russell Moore had a keen interest in assuring the rights of Mosque to be built in communities like Mufreesboro TN in 2016.

Moore also spent a great deal of time and effort working with people Luke Goodrich and the Becket Fund for Religious Liberty looking out for and promoting the notion that ensuring religious liberty for the expanse of Islam in the West was the best way to ensure the same for Christians.

Goodrich book “Free To Believe” which subjects constitutional guarantees of religious liberty in the United States to the interest of both Islam and the LGBTQ lobby (both of which are fundamentally antithetical to Christian faith and Christians religious freedom was voted “book of the year ” in 2018 by both the now progressive World Magazine and Moore’s partners in The Gospel Coalition.

Moore endorsed Goodrich and his book .

“Luke Goodrich is one of the nation’s most respected thought leaders in the arena of liberty of conscience.” –RUSSELL MOORE, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention.”

ERLC ENDORSEMENT OF ISLAMIC AMBASSADOR FOR RELIGIOUS LIBERTY

The current ERLC leadership continues on the same misguided trajectory of its former President as it endorsed Rashad Hussain the Biden administrations newly approved Ambassador.

RNS reported Hussain’s confirmation on December 16th 2021.

(RNS) — “Rashad Hussain has been confirmed as the U.S. ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom, making him the first Muslim American in the role.”

“Hussain was confirmed by the U.S. Senate on Thursday (Dec. 16) by an overwhelming vote of 85 to 5.”

“The U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom hailed the decision on Hussain, who has been director for partnerships and global engagement at the National Security Council.”

“Hussain, 42, previously served as a White House counsel during the Obama administration, as special envoy to the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and as U.S. special envoy for the Center for Strategic Counterterrorism Communications.”

“When President Joe Biden announced his nomination of Hussain in July, the White House noted his work on countering antisemitism and defending religious minorities in countries with Muslim majorities. Hussain, who has served as a judicial clerk in the 6th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals and as the editor of the Yale Law Journal, speaks Spanish, Arabic and Urdu. He also is a hafiz, or someone who has memorized the entire Quran in Arabic.”

The ambassador-at-large serves as the primary adviser to the secretary of state regarding global religious liberty and also advises the president. He supervises the State Department’s office of international religious freedom.

ERLC ENDORSEMENT

“Hussain has enormous credibility across a broad range of faith groups, built on years of leadership in efforts for religious freedom,” they wrote. “His nomination has brought enthusiastic praise from groups ranging from the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission and the Baptist World Alliance to the American Jewish Committee, the Anti-Defamation League and the Union for Reform Judaism, as well as widespread commendations from the Muslim community.”

(From Church Leaders.com)

“First Muslim International Religious Freedom Ambassador Rashad Hussain Receives Promise of Prayer From SBC Leader.”

“In congratulating Hussain, Brent Leatherwood, acting president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), said, “We are praying for his success and we are eager to work with him. Religious freedom is under assault around the globe and his position is vital to confronting those who would undermine this fundamental right.”

LEATHERWOOD IN AUGUST HAD HIGH PRAISE FOR PRESIDENT BIDEN OVER THE NOMINATION OF HUSSAIN

“Brent Leatherwood, vice president of external affairs and chief of Staff for SBC’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission, said in a statement that he has “long called for America to be a bold voice for liberty against these oppressive regimes.”

“Similarly, naming a U.S. ambassador-at-large for international religious freedom helps us to consistently use that voice,” stated Leatherwood, as reported by Baptist Press on Tuesday.”

“We appreciate the Biden administration prioritizing this appointment, and we stand ready to work with Mr. Hussain upon his confirmation to advance the fundamental human right of religious freedom internationally.”

RUSSELL MOORE PAL ERLC THOUGHT LEADER CATHOLIC ROBERT GEORGE ALSO ENDORSED HUSSAIN.

“An earlier religious freedom ambassador, Rabbi David Saperstein, joined Princeton University professor Robert P. George in supporting Hussain at the time of his confirmation hearing. The two men, who noted in a Religion News Service commentary that they have vastly different political perspectives, said Hussain was committed to protecting Christian rights and had garnered deep respect in the Muslim community.”

CONCLUSION

The Southern Baptist continue to seem unable to understand the activist culture of their own entity leaders. While using the SBC missions organizations the North American Missions Board (NAMB) and International Missions Board (IMB) to resettle first Syrian and now Afghan Muslim “REFUGEES” into America, Baptist are being told such actions are part of Christian world missions. Yet evangelization is prohibited in such government partnerships.

Baptist and Christians in general are also being told by Christian organizations and leaders like Goodrich , Moore and Leatherwood that Religious Freedoms are best being protected by promoting and protecting the rights of one of it’s most historic and fiercest persecutors. Meanwhile the entire operation is being inspired by obtaining more tax dollars. And Religious Freedom for Baptist is being overseen by a Russell Moore disciple who already carries a less than stellar reputation from his time at the TN GOP and from his actions at the 2018 Dallas Southern Baptist Convention .

SEMINARY REPORT ASSERTS COVID HAS HELPED TURN CHURCHES INTO SOCIAL SERVICE CENTERS.

ED STETZER’S RESEARCH PALS AT INTERFAITH HARTFORD SEMINARY ARE BOASTING OF VICTORY. AFTER YEARS OF WARNING ABOUT FAITH BASED PARTNERSHIPS, THE SOCIAL JUSTICE AND CRITICAL THEORIES INVASION OF CONSERVATIVE EVANGELICALISM THE DECEPTIVE END GAME IS NOW IN VIEW ACCORDING TO NEW REPORT.

Rev Thomas Littleton

12/24/2021

Corrupt evangelical leaders like Rick, Warren, Ed Stetzer, Tim Keller and Albert Mohler have been playing a long game to warp the theology and teachings of the church. from the seminaries to the Sunday school classes of toddlers the twisted vision toward a justice and equity driven mission has been packaged and sold in place of the Gospel. No one can say they were not warned that the end game for Globalist and “Equity” planners for the church was to steal its Gospel and eternal focus and replace it with a false vision of providing social services , health care, food and disaster distribution, refugee care, and now Covid 19 “response”.

Far left , interfaith Religion News Service reported on the new study by the wacky “interreligious ” Hartford Seminary- saying :

“More than half of Christian congregations say they have started a new ministry or expanded an existing outreach during the COVID-19 pandemic, according to a new survey.”

“On average, in fact, these Christian houses of worship began or broadened more than three of their outreach activities in response to the pandemic.”

“The level of new and intensified social outreach and community ministry undertaken by the nation’s churches is monumental,” reads the report by the Hartford Institute for Religion Research.”

“Overall, almost three-quarters (74%) of churches have offered social support during the pandemic and close to two-thirds of congregations say they have been involved in new ministries.

“The new findings, a November survey drawn from 820 responses from representatives of 38 Christian denominational groups, showed significant changes in congregations’ attitudes toward change, particularly increasing diversity.”

ACCORDING TO THE REPORT OMICRON VARIENT OPENS UP EVEN BROADER OPPORTUNITY

“With the emergence of the “omicron” variant and rising infection rates across the United States, the pandemic is not over. After nearly two years of navigating public health guidelines, Zoom church, and intense socio-political conflict, it is becoming increasingly clear that congregational life is not what it once was. As daunting as that statement may be for religious leaders and laity alike, it speaks to the resilience, creativity, and convictions of congregations in the United States.”

” Change is never easy. But change allows religious communities to better address the needs of their local communities in times of suffering and hardship. And congregations have done just that throughout the pandemic. The level of new and intensified social outreach and community ministry undertaken by the nation’s churches is monumental.
This report, based on data from the second key-informant survey of the Exploring the Pandemic Impact on Congregations: Innovation Amidst and Beyond Covid-19 project, includes an over-sampling of eight denominational groups and a random sampling of congregations in other denominations for a total of 38 Christian denominational groups and 820 responses. This online survey was fielded throughout the month of November 2021 and the resulting dataset was weighted to improve its national representativeness (see methodology section below).”

THE REPORT

“CONGREGATIONAL RESPONSE TO THE PANDEMIC:
EXTRAORDINARY SOCIAL OUTREACH IN A TIME OF CRISIS”

Some would think this report is very encouraging and that ministries have taken advantage of the chance to serve during the pandemic . But one need look no further than Hartford interfaith Seminary and it’s leadership like Scott Thumma, a close research partner with long time Lifeway Research former head Ed Stetzer to know the trends they are promoting and tracking and not Gospel driven or healthy pursuits of the church.

Twenty Years of Congregational Change: The 2020 Faith Communities Today Overview summarizes the findings of the largest national survey of congregations ever conducted in the U.S. It captures a pre- and early pandemic picture of America’s faith communities and affirms many of the trends evident over the past few decades, while also highlighting some distinct areas of change. This report is published by Faith Communities Today, a multireligious and collaborative research initiative that has been tracking trends in the U.S. religious landscape since 2000.”

National survey research

“This national survey component draws upon the Institute’s Faith Communities Today (FACT) collaborative initiative of over 20 different denominational research groups. It includes a number of different survey approaches spread across the five years of the grant.

Project Staff”

We’re a team of congregational researchers, sociologists of religion, and collaborative project leaders at an Institute with over 40 years of experience conducting research designed to help congregations flourish by providing data to support informed decision making. Our project staff, based out of the Hartford Institute for Religion Research at Hartford International University, work in tandem with a diverse group of scholars of religion who serve as advisors and consultants, leading organizations engaged in similar research, and a wide range of denominational research offices nationally. As a strategic and collaborative venture, we are committed to understanding how congregations have creatively responded to and navigated the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as how these changes may impact the religious landscape of the U.S. for years to come.”

Thumma has a long history promoting media driven “Church Growth” trends with Southern Baptist, Wheaton Billy Graham Center head Ed Stetzer .

Thumma was also instrumental in work promoting the “negotiation Gay Evangleical Identity since the 1980s in the book “Gay Religion which took on the same task across the board among all major faiths.

GAY RELIGION AND THUMMA/ HARTFORD SEMINARYS PAST WORK

“Conflicts over homosexuality and gay rights threaten to break apart denominations, if not North American society. These heated theological and political debates have, as well, obscured the fact that many gays and lesbians are religiously active individuals. Gay Religion is the first book to give a straightforward presentation of the spiritual lives, practices and expressions of gays, lesbians, bisexuals, and transgender. Drawing from a wide range of religious traditions, new and established scholars explore the range of gay religious expression in denominations, sects, and even outside recognized religious institutions. The essays ask what these religious innovations mean to the continually evolving religious environment of North America. With its helpful section introductions and an appendix providing profiles of organizations involved, Gay Religion is a unique and compelling resource for anyone interested in homosexuality and American religion.”

THUMMAS CHAPTER IN GAY RELIGION WHICH HE EDITED

“Negotiating a Religious Identity: The Case of the Gay Evangelical”

Scott Thumma

“This article examines the process by which persons reconstruct their Evangelical religious identity to include the formerly incongruent homosexual identity. Members of one conservative gay Christian organization, called Good News, are profiled in the way they come to desire, construct, and solidify a gay Evangelical identity. Through a process of socialization, they renegotiate the boundaries and definitions of their religious identity to include a positive valuation of homosexuality. This accommodated, but still distinctively Evangelical, identity enables persons to resolve the dissonance between their Christian beliefs and their homosexual feelings. The case study explores how a religious identity is accommodated to incorporate incompatible aspects of the self. It provides an interesting glimpse at religious socialization outside of radical conversion. This somewhat unique example offers a look at how individuals and groups are involved in negotiating religious identities in a modern world.”

Debunking Megachurch Myths: Especially the One About Sheep-Swapping

By Ed Stetzer

“So this week inadvertently turned into Megachurch Week on the blog. In the event you missed it, everything started Tuesday with some data on the continued growth of megachurches. Then on Wednesday, I shared a new infographic from Leadership Network on the financial health of megachurches.”

REALITIES TO TO CONSIDER

A Report promoting the Churches new role in social services advanced by the Covid 19 Pandemic is not something to be taken as a trend tracking investigation when it is conducted by a leading interreligious seminary and its congregational change agents think tank arms. The efforts have massive outside funding as well as subscribe to UN /NGO Global Goals and interreligious, multi-faith interfaith universalism. NO such effort is interested in the Gospel mission and focus of the church. Instead most are determined to undermine and destroy it.

Stetzer and Leadership Network are famous for tracking their own trends as a means to promote them.

The organizations in this movement are all interconnected in the push for a new paradigm church which, now aided by the Pandemic Response and billions in grant funding is fully enveloped in working as a third leg partner with the government and big business in the Faith Based Partnerships model of the Obama and now Biden era.

The organizations:

Leadership Network

Rick Warrens Purpose Driven Brand and PEACE Plan

Wheaton’s Humanitarian Disaster Institute

Along with Hartford/ Thummas groups :

Hartford Institute for Religion Research: Exploring the Pandemic Impact on Congregations

Faith Communities Today

Many many more like Covid Collaborative , the Ad Council , National Association of Evangelicals – ALL are working to USE THE PANDEMIC RESPONSE to fast forward and advance the effort to redefine the church vision and purpose toward “Equity” Inclusion, Justice, disaster response, immigration /refugee care and being THE GO To partner for the Pandemic Industrial Complex.

CONCLUSION

The VERY organizations and people responsible for the seduction of the church – even entire denominations into the Church Growth Movement, Global Goals Christianity, The Emergent Theological errors and the Faith Based Partnerships with massive outside funding flooding the Household of Faith – are now seeing the Covid 19 virus and response as the perfect means to their long game goals of a new paradigm justice driven church with an interreligious cooperation leaving it stripped of its power in the Holy Spirit, and darkened to its real vision labor like a blinded Samson on the grist mill of social services and care of society.

Even Blinded believers can have a day of redemption and arise to do God’s will.

Judges 16:

21 “Then the Philistines took him and [d]put out his eyes, and brought him down to Gaza. They bound him with bronze fetters, and he became a grinder in the prison. 22 However, the hair of his head began to grow again after it had been shaven.”

Samson Dies with the Philistines

23 “Now the lords of the Philistines gathered together to offer a great sacrifice to Dagon their god, and to rejoice. And they said:

“Our god has delivered into our hands
Samson our enemy!”

24 When the people saw him, they praised their god; for they said:

“Our god has delivered into our hands our enemy,
The destroyer of our land,
And the one who multiplied our dead.”

25 So it happened, when their hearts were merry, that they said, “Call for Samson, that he may perform for us.” So they called for Samson from the prison, and he performed for them. And they stationed him between the pillars. 26 Then Samson said to the lad who held him by the hand, “Let me feel the pillars which support the temple, so that I can lean on them.” 27 Now the temple was full of men and women. All the lords of the Philistines were there—about three thousand men and women on the roof watching while Samson performed.

28 Then Samson called to the Lord, saying, “O Lord God, remember me, I pray! Strengthen me, I pray, just this once, O God, that I may with one blow take vengeance on the Philistines for my two eyes!” 29 And Samson took hold of the two middle pillars which supported the temple, and he braced himself against them, one on his right and the other on his left. 30 Then Samson said, “Let me die with the Philistines!” And he pushed with all his might, and the temple fell on the lords and all the people who were in it. So the dead that he killed at his death were more than he had killed in his life.”

BAPTIST SEND RELIEF PARTNERS TO RESETTLE MUSLIM AFGHAN REFUGEES INTO YOUR COMMUNITIES.

NO SOONER HAD THE EMOTIONAL SCENES FROM THE BIDEN GENERATED “FALL OF KABUL” AND THE RESURGENCE OF THE TALIBAN REACHED THE U.S. , THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST SEND RELIEF HAD POSITIONED THEMSELVES WITH WORLD RELIEF, CATHOLIC AND LUTHERAN AGENCIES TO AID GOVERNMENT RESETTLEMENT OF MUSLIMS INTO AMERICA.

Rev Thomas Littleton

12/7/2021

No one in Southern Baptist churches has any idea how much money is flooding into the SBC coffers for Afghan Refugee resettlement through NAMB /IMB or it’s Clarkston Georgia -Send Relief Center and others ( there are dozens open and or planned) across the nation. No one knows because NONE OF THE SBC LEADERSHIP are talking about the funding or the government partnerships, or that most of the refugees are in fact not persecuted Christians fleeing the Taliban but Muslims being patriated as “New Americans ” and labeled as the Christians “New Neighbors”.

SEND RELIEF PRESIDENT LET THE CAT OUT OF THE BAG THAT MOST REFUGEES ARE MUSLIM AND THE CHURCHES ROLE “IS TO WELCOME THEM IN”.

Send Relief Center for Refugees in Clarkston Georgia was set up to help process Syrian Refugees for government agencies , match them with welfare and social services, housing, healthcare, and job training and placement in the name of Christian Mission. The only problems with this scheme is that government agency contracting and funding prohibits ministry (aka explicit religious activity ) to the recipients of the services by those missions agencies involved. Also down the road the tax funding for such “Faith Based Partnerships ” will go away and be replaced by the money and resources of the churches and Christian agencies involved.

Bryant Wright

PRESIDENT SEND RELIEF

“Bryant Wright served in Southern Baptist life as both a pastor and SBC president before joining Send Relief in 2020. He retired as the founding Senior Pastor of Johnson Ferry Baptist Church in Marietta, Georgia, on December 15, 2019, where he had pastored for 38 years.”

image.png
The International Mission Board (IMB) and the North American Mission Board (NAMB) announced Bryant Wright as the new president of Send Relief

WRIGHT LAYS A HEAVY DOSE OF VERSES ON “CARING FOR STRANGERS” AND THE GOOD SAMARITAN BUT FAILS TO GRAPS THE INTENTIONAL PROGRESSIVE POLICIES BEHIND THE ONGOING WAVES OF HUMAN MIGRATION BY U.S. DEMOCRATIC PARTY LEADERS

WRIGHT ALSO NEVER MENTIONS THE HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS WHICH THE SEND RELIEF PARTNER WORLD RELIEF RECIEVED IN THE SYRIAN REFUGEE CRISIS

“Video: Care for Refugees Workshop”

“… archived video for the Care for Refugees Workshop, held September 10, 2021, at the Send Relief Ministry Center in Clarkston, Georgia.”

Care for Refugees Workshop

“This one-day training offered by Send Relief in partnership with World Relief shares practical ways for you to mobilize your family, friends, small group or church to meet the needs of refugees and internationals as they transition to a new home.”

During a September Refugee Volunteer Training Film available on the Send Relief website, Wright told trainees

“After 20 years of US rebuilding effort .. in a disastrous exit everything fell apart .. ( paraphrased from @ minute 28 )”the government has a job to do and that is to take in refugees onto military bases and vet them …and they are vetted a great deal because some people with other intentions. But they will not stay on military bases because it is not the militaries job to care for refugees. The role of the churches is to care for refugees and welcome them in to out neighborhoods, our homes and our churches.. and that makes it difficult in a lot of our churches because of fear (minute 30:23) ” because THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF THESE AFGHAN REFUGEES ARE MUSLIMS”

AGAIN WRIGHT ADMITS :

THE FEAR FACTOR BECAUSE …MOST OF “THESE REFUGESS ARE MUSLIMS “

Wright goes on to say that (PARAPHRASED ) ” and here we are in the twenty year shadow of 9/ 1 when Muslims terrorist attacked our land we know the understandable and natural fear that will be there because most of these people are Muslim.”

Wright again admits ” THERE IS FEAR because MOST OF THESE AFGHAN REFUGEES ARE MUSLIM”. Earlier Wright had point out that over 70 % of those Refugees left behind are Women and children .So we can by that admission suppose that most of those being processed into America are Males.

Wright “Muslims are simply deceived by a false teaching that they need to be liberated from …”

But Wright does not explain why Muslim people are fleeing a return to Muslim rule in Afghanistan or why the Refugees are not mostly Christians fleeing persecution. The Obama administration is reported to have placed persecuted Christians last and left many in harms way during it’s “Refugee Crisis” after the poor policies of the Arab Spring. The Biden administration looks to be repeating the pattern.

MORE FROM WRIGHT’S BIO

“He is a straightforward communicator who uniquely connects God’s unchanging truth with a diverse culture through compelling and creative teaching.”

Wright seems accustomed to talking down to his ill informed listeners. This is now a common practice in todays agenda driven pulpits.

Wright does not inform the Baptist volunteers of how much money the SBC/ NAMB and Send Relief or World Relief its direct partnering agency are getting to process refugees. In FACT no one in the SBC outside these insider agency leaders is even told that tax funding is involved. BUT the Baptist are raising more money form their own for the “ministry ” to refugees which the government partnerships prohibit.

“Creative and compelling ” but so much for honesty and integrity.

THE MONEY IS NEVER MENTION BUT HOW MUCH ARE WE TALKING ABOUT FOR MINISTRY ORGANIZATIONS LIKE SEND AND WORLD RELIEF?

Don’t wait for them to bring it up because they will not but Catholic Charities received some $5.4 billion during the last “Refugee Crisis ” and World Relief – its evangelical partner and recruited received some $300 million form that .

HOW MUCH IS IN THE MIX FOR BAPTIST /SEND RELIEF AND OTHER EVANGLEICALS? IT MAYTAKE YEARS TO KNOW BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT TELLING.

Meanwhile these leaders are TRAFFICKING IN THE FAITHFUL and the selling the faith of their followers to global goals deceptions.

MUSLIM POPULATION GROWTH IN AMERICA VIA CHRISTIAN AID MISSIONARIES

The long term outcomes of this and other refugee resettlement efforts is a massive Muslim migration into the West. That is the intention of both the Obama era Syrian crisis and the present day efforts to resettle Afghan refugees. It has little to do with compassion for persecuted peoples and far more to do with the progressive open borders agendas of globalist. Americas conservative and Christian demographics are being diluted and weakened while our own people are being told they are ministering the Gospel to the refugees of the world.

THE SEND PARTNERSHIPS IN DETAIL

“Send Relief, World Relief working together to resettle Afghan refugees

“ALPHARETTA, Ga.—In the aftermath of the sudden, tragic fall of Afghanistan into the hands of the Taliban, thousands of refugees have been fleeing the landlocked nation to escape persecution and retaliation from the extremist group. Send Relief, the compassion ministry arm of Southern Baptists, has begun the process of helping Afghan refugees as they resettle around the world by working with World Relief and other ministry partners.”

“The Taliban recently seized power of Afghanistan, storming the nation and capturing most major cities within a matter of days.”

“In the aftermath of the political coup, a mass exodus is taking place as Afghans try to flee the country by the thousands. Religious and ethnic minorities, along with women and girls, are the groups most in danger of Taliban violence as they try to escape.”

“As Afghan refugees are resettled, this crisis will impact communities all around the world, including yours. Through Send Relief and the combined resources of the IMB and NAMB, Southern Baptists are able to serve Afghan refugees wherever they are resettled.”

“Send Relief is strategically working with our trusted ministry partners to minister to Afghan refugee families. We can connect you and your church with opportunities to pray, serve and give to support this response!”

“Your gifts to the Afghanistan Refugee Crisis Fund will support churches and refugee ministries in the United States and around the world as they care for resettled Afghan refugees. Give today to bring help and healing to the hurting!”

“Follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram for the latest updates on our response.”

“How You and Your Church Can Serve”

Partner with World Relief

“The most immediate way your church can serve resettled refugees is by volunteering as a host home through your local World Relief office. If your church is interested in ministering to refugees by becoming a host home, fill out the World Relief interest form.”

Afghan Refugee Ministry Coaching

“Your church can request personalized coaching from a Send Relief Afghan refugee expert as you minister to Afghan refugees in your community. Our team will coach you in evangelism, discipleship and cross-cultural awareness.”

Care for Refugees Workshop

“Did you miss our Care for Refugees Workshop on September 10? Don’t worry! You can still watch a video of the entire event. Watch now by clicking here.”

THE GRAND DECEPTION GOES MUCH DEEPER

MUSLIMS AND CHRISTIANS CANNOT FAITHFULLY COEXIST NOR CAN THE US CONSTITUTION MERGE WIHT SHARIA

Religious Liberty in America is born out of its Judeo Christian influence on the Constitution. Sharia is not compatible with the US Constitution and its understanding of Religious Liberty. Americans have been a very tolerant people but the suppression of Christianity in the US has reached an all time high while the posture toward Islam is shifting in it’s favor. The progressive political movements in both Faiths and in fact among ALL FAITHS is a deception of globalist toward a “Global Spirituality ” where faiths and people are allowed some distinctions and doctrines but are all hard pressed into the common ground for the common good and for a toxic new age mixture of comingled nothingness.

NO TRUE ADHERENTS TO ANY FAITH WILL BUY THIS LIE.

No True Christians can allow it to prosper among our churches.

Christian faith cannot successfully be merged into Interfaith and Multi-faith alliances such as those promoted by Baptist leaders like Rick Warren, Ed Stetzer,or Bob Roberts via Neighborly Faith or Multi Faith Neighbors Network.

REFUGEES ARE ON THIER WAY TO CITIZENSHIPFASTRACK

“OFFICE OF NEW AMERICANS”

“The Office of New Americans (ONA) was established in 2020 to promote the economic and civic success of Virginia’s diverse immigrant communities. The Office is comprised of an Immigrant Services unit and Refugee Services unit (formerly known as the Office of Newcomer Services).”

The Office is responsible for the implementation of a statewide strategy to provide immigrants with comprehensive assistance related to employment, housing, healthcare, education, citizenship and other services for which they may be eligible.

US News in August

More Virginia Sites Set to Welcome Afghan Immigrant Influx

“Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam’s administration has received notification that the Department of Defense has authorized the use of Marine Corps Base Quantico to house Afghan refugees, as well as a national guard installation in central Virginia.”

“Fort Lee, an Army training site in Virginia, was already housing immigrants who recently fled Afghanistan. Over the coming weeks, capacity at Quantico and Fort Pickett in Nottoway County “will build” to support about 5,000 and 10,000 people, respectively, according to an email a senior Northam administration official received and shared with The Associated Press.”

“We welcome these refugees, no matter how long or short they are here,” said Billy Coleburn, the mayor of Blackstone, which neighbors Fort Pickett.”

VIRGINIA DEPARTMENT OF SOCIAL SERVICES.

“Virginia’s Refugee Resettlement Program supports refugees with social integration and economic empowerment. Support services available to refugee-eligible clients include employment, health, education, youth mentoring, services for older refugees and foster care for unaccompanied refugee minors through the Unaccompanied Refugee Minor Foster Care (URM) program .

VDSS works in partnership with the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and federally-contracted agencies to administer the URM program.

Refugee services are currently provided by six resettlement agencies across the state: Catholic Charities Diocese of Arlington- Migration and Refugee Services, Commonwealth Catholic Charities, Church World Service, Ethiopian Community Development Council, International Rescue Committee and Lutheran Social Services. Click here for Resettlement Contracts

CONCLUSION

Progressive policy and Democratic Party/ Saul Alinsky inspired politics say “NEVER WASTE A GOOD CRISIS”. Alinsky , who realized the Catholic Charities were a great target for his efforts to radicalize and rally professing Catholics and “Christians” for the left – would be proud of current efforts to distort and deceive “do good” Christians into thinking that furthering open borders and globalist agendas and undermining the influence of Christian faith and religious liberty in America is “The ministry of the Gospel”.

Alinsky Rule number 6- “A good tactic is one your people enjoy.”

Baptist and Christians love to SERVE. Tell them they are serving the Refugees and God while you harness them for Global Goals and the spread of a false one world spirituality where all faiths join forces for eh kingdom of anti Christ. Brilliant deception.

Deuteronomy 28

“Curses on Disobedience”

43 “The alien who is among you shall rise higher and higher above you, and you shall come down lower and lower. 44 He shall lend to you, but you shall not lend to him; he shall be the head, and you shall be the tail.

47 “Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joy and gladness of heart, for the abundance of everything, 48 therefore you shall serve your enemies, whom the Lord will send against you, in hunger, in thirst, in nakedness, and in need of everything; and He will put a yoke of iron on your neck until He has destroyed you.”

SALVATON ARMY WOKENESS LEADS ALL THE WAY TO “U N GLOBAL GOALS”, FEMINIST AGENDA AND TEACHING KIDS ABOUT”SOCIAL JUSTICE”

THE SLAVATION ARMY CAN NO LONGER HIDE THE TROUBLING FUTURE IT HAS CAST FOR ITSELF. THE WOKE JUSTICE MOVEMENT WHICH LED THEM TO DEMAND DONORS REPENT OF RACISM DID GAINED ATTENTION. YET THE APOSTATE COMPROMISE RUNS MUCH DEEPER.

Rev Thomas Littleton

12/3/2021

Another historic Christian Institution is gone down the worm hole of the United Nations Global Justice Sustainability Goals. There is NO coming back.

By 2014 it was obvious that the Salvation army was veering sharply to the left and appeasing activist culture like the Human Rights Campaign .

By the time you heard the Christmas donor bells ringing during shopping season the situation had obviously gotten much worse as the Salvation Army released a GUIDE asking white donors to repent of racism. YET a deeper look at the Salvation Army’s International Social Justice Commission and its work with the United Nations proves just how far the once Gospel centered ministry has fallen.

WHY WE SEEK JUSTICE

  • To promote a vision of justice based on the life and teaching of Jesus Christ.
  • To advocate and advise on social, economic, political issues and events which lead to the perpetuation of injustice in the world.
  • To amplify the voices of poor, marginalized and oppressed people and translate their real life insights into policies, practices and life-giving opportunities.

‘”God is still leading and blessing the Army. With that comes a clear call … to link who we are with the very essence of what we do, the mission that is ours. […] It is a call to be a justice-focused Army.’- The Officer – July-September 2018

THE FULL GLOBAL GOALS BUY IN OF SALVATION ARMY

The UN Sustainable Development Goals are the globalist dream list of redistribution and global governance attainments and how to nuance compliance of them by faith based organizations to serve in the grand scheme called Agenda 2030 . Other “Christian” organizations have already sold out to the Globalist like the Lausanne Movement , Rick Warren’s Purpose Driven and PEACE Plan and the Catholics current Pope Francis who in Sept 2015 fully embraced the scheme at the UN itself. At that time the shortened timeline for attaining the Global Goals controls had been by 2050 but the progress under the Obama administration had enabled 20 years to be shaven off the timeline and the movement renamed Agenda 2030.

HERE IS SALVATION ARMY IN ITS OWN GLOBAL GOALS ALIGNMENT WORDS

Why should we get involved with the SDGs?

“The fact that world leaders agreed on a set of goals reflecting values which The Salvation Army has promoted for 125 years is something to be welcomed – especially as it can result in positive change for the poorest and most vulnerable people. The goals identify issues and promote values very familiar to Salvationists: equality of all people with no discrimination; the well‐being of all people with all people able to flourish; being good stewards of the earth and its resources; seeking peace and security for all people. These are values that shine through the Bible and have inspired Christians for more than 2000 years. All people, without exception, are made in the image of God and are equally precious to him (Genesis 1:27‐31). In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus declared: ‘Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God’ (Matthew 5:9). Jesus declared that he came that we might ‘have life and life in all its fullness’ (John 10:10). The SDGs recognise a lesson The Salvation Army learnt many years ago – people and communities need to participate in their own development. In addition, The Salvation Army recognises the importance of integration. Just as God created people as integrated persons with body and soul so those seeking to participate in God’s mission to save the world should not fragment services or treat only the body while trying to ignore the soul and spiritual healing. General André Cox is encouraging The Salvation Army to focus attention on the SDGs in every programme. This does not mean only in the developing world. The goals are universal, for every nation, for all people, everywhere.”

“The International Social Justice Commission is The Salvation Army’s strategic voice to advocate for human dignity and social justice with the world’s poor and oppressed. Building on The Salvation Army’s participation in the United Nations since 1947, the International Social Justice Commission has embraced the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as a focus of its research, teaching, policy, and coalition-building work. The International Social Justice Commission staff are deployed in New York, Vienna, Geneva and Nairobi.The Salvation Army International Social Justice Commission (ISJC) promotes constructive conversation and respect among individuals. In participating on this page users agree to respect other people’s differences and engage in mutual understanding. The ISJC reserves the right to remove or edit any comments that it considers inappropriate or unacceptable.”

SALVATION ARMY WANTS TO THINK THE WORLD HAS ALIGNED WITH THE GOSPEL AND THE SALVATION ARMYS MISSION?

REALLY ?

While Intersectionality is ravaging the Southern Baptist Church and other denominations and setting them up to be pillaged by the feminist /metoo movement and forced into “Diversity Equity and Inclusion” culture -the Salvation Army has chosen to be an ally for the feminist justice /intersectionality march through the institutions.

NOTE the Salvation Army has always been an egalitarian movement so why does it need to champion feminine theory calls for “justice” ?

SOME OF THE KEY ELEMENTS OF THE PARTNERSHIP WITH GLOBAL JUSTICE

CRY JUSTICE “

The international Salvation Army is being called to prioritise prayer, specifically for justice on behalf of women and girls.

“In every context of injustice females suffer most. Globally, women do three times more unpaid care work than men. The gap is largest in Northern Africa and Western Asia, but it exists in every region. Globally one in two women who are murdered are murdered by a male partner or family member. 71 per cent of all trafficking victims globally are females.”

“Our hearts anguish to see the images and read the headlines. We cry out for justice in the streets, and before God in prayer.”

“We cry for justice because of the image of God in every human being, the God revealed in Jesus Christ, the One who loves justice, and works justice for all the oppressed (Psalm 33:5103:6).”

“Will you join us in seeking justice together, by crying out to God in prayer for justice in the earth, following the example of the persistent widow as described by Jesus? ‘And will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones, who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off?’”

“WOMEN LEADING IN THE CHURCH”

(NOTE THE JUSTICE AND RACIAL NARRATIVES DEVELOPED BY THE QUESTIONS IN THIS SALVATION ARMY EVENT.)

What challenge have you faced as women of colour leaders? What has it been like to sit at the decision-making tables?

What difference do you think it makes to have Women of Colour at the table where decision are binging made? How has it taken shape in your own experience as leaders.

What violence against Women and girls do you see that needs to be eliminated in the context of the Church?

Is the Church ahead or behind of the larger society when it comes to embracing Women’s leadership? How do we model that in the church?

SALVATION ARMY WANTS TO TEACH KIDS SOCIAL JUSTICE INDOCTRINATION

WORKING WITH SAVE THE CHILDREN SALVATION ARMY IS PUTTING FORTH THIS GUIDE

“12 TIPS YOU CAN TRUST:
Talking with Children About Racism
and Social Justice”

“Every child has the right to grow up healthy, educated and safe – regardless of race, gender or socioeconomic status. Systemic change to end racism is essential to achieving this vision.
Save the Children was founded over 100 years ago to fight for universal values and
children’s rights. However, we also live in a society that still suffers from a legacy of

THE SALVATION ARMY PARTNERSHIPS WITH THE UNITED NATIONS IN SOCIAL JUSTICE PROVIDE ANNUAL REPORTS. ON THIER APOSTATE ACCOMPLISHMENTS

“The high-level political forum on sustainable development (HLPF) is the core United Nations platform for follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and its 17 Sustainable Development Goals.”

“The meeting of the HLPF in 2021 was held from Tuesday, 6 July, to Thursday, 15 July 2021, under the auspices of the Economic and Social Council. This included the three-day ministerial meeting of the forum from Tuesday, 13 July, to Thursday, 15 July 2021

SALVATION ARMY PLAYS THE RACE CARD

“LET’S TALK ABOUT RACISM”

Consistent with its scriptural foundations, The Salvation Army stands against racism in all forms. Our International Positional Statement on Racism makes that clear.

“Elements of the recently issued “Let’s Talk About Racism” guide led some to believe we think they should apologize for the color of their skin, or that The Salvation Army may have abandoned its Biblical beliefs for another philosophy or ideology. That was never our intention, so the guide has been removed for appropriate review.”

SALVATION ARMY AND “REFUGEE CARE”

“THE SALVATION ARMY
INTERNATIONAL POSITIONAL STATEMENT
REFUGEES AND ASYLUM SEEKERS”

“The Salvation Army is gravely concerned for the needs of the millions of people who are refugees and asylum seekers. People are fleeing their homes and countries because of a well-founded fear of persecution. Many of these people have experienced significant grief and trauma, which have potential long-term consequences for their health and well-being.”
“The Salvation Army recognises that the ability to seek asylum is a basic human right, with all people having the right to life, liberty and security of person. The Salvation Army supports international efforts to eliminate persecution and displacement through the promotion of peace, tolerance, understanding and respect for human life and dignity.
God’s hospitable loving concern for the stranger and foreigner are evident in Scripture and therefore, The Salvation Army contends that individuals and governments should act compassionately and humanely towards persons seeking asylum.”

SALVATION ARMY LOST IN AND ENDLESS CIRCLE OF DEADLY DIALOG WITH NO GRASP ON THE GOSPEL

IDD

“International Discussion Documents aim is to stimulate personal reflection rather than to provide conclusive positions. The hope is that these documents will better equip Salvationists to contribute towards broader dialogue or help inform personal choices related to the issue.”

BY 2015 THE SALVATION ARMY WAS SINKING IN THE MIRE ACCORDING TO THEIR OWN REPORTS WITH THE UN.

CONCLUSION

The Salvation Army provides ample proof that it has joined the growing list of lost organizations who have joined globalist to build TOWARD the very kind of end time prophetic fulfillment ensuring its own demise as a Christ honoring and Gospel proclaiming organization. NO organization- no matter how solid it was in its origins or how much fruit it may have born in the past – has ever recovered it’s God given calling from this apostate abyss.

Somewhere -someone -somehow enticed the Salvation Army to sell its most precious possession .

Genesis 25:29-34

29 And Jacob sod pottage: and Esau came from the field, and he was faint:

30 And Esau said to Jacob, Feed me, I pray thee, with that same red pottage; for I am faint: therefore was his name called Edom.

31 And Jacob said, Sell me this day thy birthright.

32 And Esau said, Behold, I am at the point to die: and what profit shall this birthright do to me?

33 And Jacob said, Swear to me this day; and he sware unto him: and he sold his birthright unto Jacob.

34 Then Jacob gave Esau bread and pottage of lentiles; and he did eat and drink, and rose up, and went his way: thus Esau despised his birthright.”

TIM KELLER, KERN $$/FAITH & WORK ,AND THE FEMINIST MOVEMENT TO DESTROY BIBLICAL CHRISTIANITY

FOR YEARS NOW TIM KELLER HAS INHABITED THE LEADING EDGE OF CHRISTIAN “INFLUENCERS” PROMOTING “HUMAN FLOURISHING” /TIME TO FLOURISH/ FAITH AND WORK / AND THE GLOBAL PUSH OF SOCIAL JUSTICE AS THE HEART OF THE GOSPEL.

NOW KELLER’S FAITH & WORK TEAM HAVE JOINED WITH FULLER SEMINARY/ DE PREE CENTER TO DRIVE THE WOMENS MOVEMENT FOR DIVERSITY ,EQUITY AND INCLUSION WORLD WIDE.

Rev Thomas Littleton

11/30/2021

Tim Keller has long been credited as a leading Christian thinker and intellectual and was even crowned with titles like “the new CS Lewis ” or “the new John Stott”. Keller has driven a constant narrative of “Human Flourishing” /Thriving Cities/ Common Ground for the Common Good / and Christian Civility in a pluralistic society . But no other area of Keller’s efforts has more openly provided insight into his actual inspiration and the political motivations ( at least in part political) than his leading edge work with the Faith and Works Economics through his Redeemer Center For Faith and Works. It embraces the social justice narratives with fervor. Since at least 2019 the Fuller Seminary De Pree Center has been using Faith and Works programing funded by Kern Family Fundation and partnering with Tim Keller’s Center for Faith and Work leaders to drive a radical feminist justice narrative.

Some history -Keller Faith and Work Partnering organizations include :

MADE TO FLOURISH

ACTON INSTITUTE

ECONOMIC WORKS PROJECT

THEOLOGY OF WORK PROJECT

CENTER FOR PUBLIC CHRISTIANITY

THE GOSPEL COALITION (ALSO OF TIM KELLER)

FAITH FOR THE COMMON GOOD

And literally dozens more.

The primary coordination and funding for Faith and Works “economics “has come from Action Institute who provides the curriculum for the centers, schools and seminaries and funding has been through and from the Kern Family Foundation .By 2014 Kern took parts of its operations offshore to the Cayman Islands making it much more difficult to track the inflow and outflow of money. Oikonomia Network is a Kern Organization which solicits and trains scholars for placement in institutions and on campuses to promote the Faith and Works ideologies and OVERSEE the grants and outcomes.

Since at least 2015 this effort has been exposed to be the ROOT OF THE FALSE SOCIAL JUSTICE MOVEMENT in evangelical seminaries and institutions.

The Faith and Works efforts have relied heavily on public faces like Tim Keller and his Faith and Works developer Katherine Leary Alsdorf, and marketing resources like their coauthored book “Every Good Endeavor” in 2012 to promote the brand.

( Pictured Keller and Alsdorf in one of their multitude of F&W events)

NOW IT CAN BE DOCUMENTED THAT THE FAITH AND WORKS EFFORTS FUNDED BY KERN ARE PLAYING A KEY ROLE IN THE ADVACE OF “INTERSECTIONAL JUSTICE” FOR CHRISTIAN WOMEN.

Intersectionality is the movement behind the #metoo call for justice which is currently sweeping through Christian institutions. It goals are part of the use of Critical Theories on Race, (CRT) Gender, Sexual Orientation (Queer Theory) to drive social change within Christian faith. It presumes institutional guilt and makes the demand for justice and change.

The leading edge of the spear being tossed at Christianity is the Metoo movement which is said to address Sex Abuse scandals of the past and provide the “path forward”. That Path Forward “Road Ahead”,as we shall see, will be using tools like the Faith and Work for women and justice in the workplace including churches and Christian institutions. This is the application of Intersectionality to bring the justice cause of the “oppressed gender” (according to the narratives) to light and to sweep through the “oppressive systems dominated male toxic male masculinity and patriarchal male culture”. At least that is what is promised.

In the case of the current trend now clearly supported by Tim Keller/ Kern /Faith and Works (and many more ) this attack on masculinity is being perverted to be a Gospel issue and promise a better world despite its anti biblical , anti gender, anti family, anti Christ focus. (Anti Christ because the movement downplays the biblical role of women in faith, motherhood, family , and in the church.

WHAT IS INTERSECTIONALITY

“Intersectionality within CRT points to the multidimensionality of oppressions and recognizes that race alone cannot account for disempowerment. “Intersectionality means the examination of race, sex, class, national origin, and sexual orientation, and how their combination plays out in various settings.”[1] This is an important tenet in pointing out that CRT is critical of the many oppressions facing people of color and does not allow for a one–dimensional approach of the complexities of our world.” ( Activist at UCLA definition)

(DOUBT THE SEVERITY OF THESE FORCES CONVERGING? READ ON.)

SOMEWHERE OVER THE JUSTICE/ INTERSECTIONALITY RAINBOW

In 2017 Oikonomia Network -the Kern Family Foundation’s campus oversight and implementation organization -confirmed it had secured funding and influence into Fuller Seminary.

“One year ago, Fuller Seminary joined the Oikonomia Network because we embraced ON’s vision and were eager to join with other seminaries in the vital work of “helping pastors equip people for whole-life discipleship, fruitful work and economic wisdom.”

THE KERN FULLER WORK AT THE DE PREE CENTER

“Though Fuller addresses whole-life discipleship, including work and economics, in its classes and a wide variety of programs, Fuller’s Max De Pree Center for Leadership focuses its efforts on these issues. The De Pree Center exists to serve marketplace leaders so they might live intentionally and wisely as disciples of Jesus in every part of life, including their daily work. The center does this by serving both marketplace leaders and churches through theologically rich resources and contextual experiences that meet the needs of marketplace leaders and the churches eager to serve them.”

“For example, the De Pree Center publishes Life for Leaders, a daily digital devotional that makes regular connections between faith, work and leadership. Life for Leaders is emailed without charge to over 4,600 subscribers each morning. The center also sponsors the Church & Marketplace network, which is a “network of marketplace leaders helping churches become incubators of faith and work integration.” It offers resources, hosts events, oversees a speakers’ bureau, and serves churches that are eager to grow in vocational integration.”

WHERE THE MONEY AND THE INTERSECTIONALITY IS .

Fuller’s De Pree Center is part of the lager Faith and Works cabal network including the Made to Flourish, Common Ground , Keller, Marketplace Ministry, New City Fellows, Center for Public Christianity, etc organizations.

A DE PREE CENTER INTERVIEW WITH KELLERS F&W HEAD KATHERINE LEARY ALSDORF

“Lean in” is “lean into yourself” — “you can do it!” “You’ve got what it takes baby.” But whether you’re male or female, our “lean in” has to be “lean into God.” God wants us to be risk-takers and get out of our comfort zone and respond to our callings in the world — not on our own strength but by leaning into him. I want to meet her and I pray for her that she will understand that there’s a God to lean into in the brokenness of ourselves and the marketplace. How can change happen? How do we make this a better more flourishing world for everyone? We’ve got resources in the Word of God and in our relationship with God that provides so much more hope — a more realistic hope than just leaning into our own competencies.”

Missy Wallace Vice President Executive Director Global Faith & Work Initiative of Keller’s Center for Faith and Works is also involved in work at the De Pree Center at Fuller.

FULLER’S DE PREE CENTER FOCUS ON DIVERSITY EQUITY AND INCLUSION OF WOMEN IN THE FAITH AND WORKS PROGRAMING

DE PREE CENTER SAMPLES OF ACTIVSM IN “FAITH AND WORK”

ESTHER THE ACTIVIST

“Out of the tribe of Benjamin, forcefully living under the empire of Babylon, there was a certain young woman. She was not your average person. She could have been written off as a statistic with low chances of success. She was an ethnic minority, an orphan, and a female in a male-dominant society. Her name was Hadassah, and she was beautiful.”

Though queen, she too had a glass ceiling to which she’d become accustomed. Attempting to break it would mean getting cut.

“If the king didn’t extend his scepter to her, she would lose her life. Would he? In this moment, she did not approach him as his wife or his beloved. She came as the minority-queen-activist— Queen Hadassah-Esther: a Jewish woman of intellect and strategy, of position and power.”

BELOW THE GLASS CEILING

“As much as I’d like to imagine that the men I look up to as mentors or as bosses seek to include me as much as they do with my male peers, I have to face the reality that that’s not always the case. The reality that I’ve experienced is that, more often than not, the men I’ve worked with or around tend to stick together. This goes for Christian and non-Christian circles alike. In church leadership, in school, and in the workplace, there seems to be this unspoken bond of “apprenticeship,” that male mentors and bosses share with other men who are trying to work their way up the ladder.”

SHE IS RESOURCE

A rich portrait of how women have robustly participated in the work of God.

“We at Fuller’s De Pree Center are excited to present to you, She Is…, a study guide designed to help people engage questions of vocation through the stories of various biblical women. This collection of diverse perspectives shares the unique lens that each author sees these biblical women in.”

A SEAT AT THE TABLE

“Too often, women are enculturated to set the table rather than sit at the table in their work. It’s time for that to change—time for women to take a seat at the table God is calling them to.

You’ll learn more about: 1) a critical look at the landscape of women in work; 2) a biblical reframing of women who “sit at the table”; 3) a series of experiments to take out into the world; 4) questions to guide your reflection along the way.”

MORE ON WOMEN AS “VICITMS” OF BURNOUT

De Pree Center

“Are you feeling overwhelmed in your work? Considering a transition? Looking for tools to discern what’s next?The 2021 Women in the Workplace study revealed that working women are even more burned out than they were last year—and increasingly more so than men. Plus, right now, women lead men in quitting their jobs—as part of an overall shakeup in the workforce referred to as “The Great Resignation.”Over the past two years, we’ve been leading groups for women who are discerning questions of vocation. Now, we invite you to join four of our Road Ahead Guides as we unpack what we’re noticing and discuss what we’re hopeful for in this extraordinary season of transition and transformation. Click the link below to register. Even if you can’t join live, those who register will receive the recording afterwards!”

These kinds of programs and narratives are both pushing the victim status or women in the workplace and in Christian employment as well as intended to drive the increased “Diversity, Equity and Inclusion ” culture. Using the victim status of women in the workplace and applying it to the church is filled with tangled webs and minefields of inapplicable codes and metrics. Biblical fidelity precludes any across the board assumptions of diagnosis or cure for the problems. Add in the vengeful secular blood thirst for bringing down Christian institutions and the churches standard bearing call to be of salt and light against the cultural decline- the MeToo movement wed with intersectionality is the perfect weapon to engineer the institutional churches downfall. There are two prime examples of this battle currently underway in major Christian institutions of the SBC and Liberty University.

HOW THE FEMINIST #METOO MOVEMENT IS BEING ADVANCED FROM INSIDE THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST CONVENTION TO SERVE THE INTERSECTIONAL FEMINIST.

Two significant Institutions in biblically conservative Christianity, The Southern Baptist Convention and Liberty University, are currently under full on assault over sex abuse and scandalous reported “coverups” of it. The victims and justice for victims has come to play a very minor role in the effort compared to the agenda driven elements of “Diversity Equity & Inclusion” of radical feminist/racial / LGBTQ/ minority activist.

The tools of the trade are the victim coalition of intersectionality and its well honed critical theories providing the rhetoric. The OUTCOMES will be large legal settlements but also will focus on MORE Diversity Equity and Inclusive Cultures being forced upon the Complementarian institutions in the biblically conservative Christian sphere. No quarter will be given to the alleged “toxic masculinity ” and “patriarchal systems” of Bible based organizations espousing traditional faith and family roles and leadership.

Below is a Summary of the how unknown forces within the SBC have hardwired the MeToo /Sex Abuse scandal response /Task Force / legal teams /and DE&I Compliance partners to be taken down the denominations like a whipped puppy before the national media and the secular world with the help of feminist theologian “prophetesses” /victims advocates posing as justice warriors.

HOW WILL THE FAITH AND WORKS FEMINIST EFFORTS FACTOR INTO THIS?

On the other side of the take down -Christianity will need not only compliance officers and DE&I training after public contrition. It will need a just path forward to advance the intersectional movement players into leadership roles to ensure the future of this post #metoo world. Faith and Works will provide the directives for the “Road Ahead “.

EXECUTIVE SUMMARY OF SEXUAL ABUSE FIRMS LGBTQ ALLIES

( This summary was provided to SBC leaders in several states working to counter the obvious selling out of the SBC by some inside it’s own leadership at the national level )

THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT SET OF FACTS ON WHO HAS BEEN BROUGHT TO THE TABLE AGAINST THE SBC TO SUPPOSEDLY ROOT OUT SEX ABUSE AND THE COVERING UP OF IT.

(Many of the same public theater players in the SBC takeover have now moved in on Liberty University sex abuse scandal .)

SBC SEX ABUSE INVESTIGATION SUMMARY

Information and links on the pro LGBTQ Equality law firm of the SBC Task Force, the investigating partner Guidepost Solutions and the SBC Executive Committee law firm for the SBC sex abuse scandal.

According to the SBC Task Force they have hired their own legal firm .“The task force explains this matter in its Sept. 29 letter: “The task force retained our own legal counsel, Linklaters attorneys Adam Lurie and Richard Smith. Both men are former senior Department of Justice officials with extensive back ground also in corporate law.”

This is the website for the firm the SBC Task Force hired.

It asserts that “Diversity and Inclusion are the Pulse of the Firm.”You can search various awards and goals in keeping with the LGBTQ focus of the firm at this link. https://www.linklaters.com/…/diversity-and-inclusion?

One of the recent accomplishments of the firm is to work with the radical Human Rights Campaign on developing legal strategy to eliminate discrimination against LGBTQ

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

Video – one of many for “SBC task” force attorneys “We as a firm are totally committed to LGBT Equality. “https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xpyeJmfm7UY The website is filled with such LGBTQ news, goals and accomplishments.

The Task Force Investigation partner is Guidepost Solutions.

Its vision statement says the company is a “Mosaic of Diversity and Innovation “ and is “totally committed to equality”.https://guidepostsolutions.com/careers/diversity-inclusion/

Also the SBC Executive Committee law firm boast they have received HRC Corporate Equality Index awards 5 years running. HRC gives these awards based on pro LGBTQ metrics and grading and based on companies funding the HRC full LGBTQ Equality agenda.https://www.lockelord.com/…/hrc-2021-corporate-equality…

“January 28, 2021 – Locke Lord has achieved a 100 percent rating in the Human Rights Campaign (HRC) Foundation’s 2021 Corporate Equality Index (CEI) for the fifth consecutive year. A perfect score in this annual report evaluating policies and practices related to LGBTQ employees, culture and corporate social responsibility earns the Firm the distinction of being an employer of choice for LGBTQ employees.”

HRC has a horrific reputation on abuse and cover ups of its own. Human Rights Campaign co founder Terry Bean was charged with the rape of a 15 year old boy.https://www.advocate.com/…/watch-obama-friend-hrc…

Recently the head of HRC was fired over involvement in the Cuomo sex abuse cover up. https://www.yahoo.com/…/human-rights-campaign-leader…

These firms and Guidepost commitment to LGBTQ diversity and inclusion and both law firms support of HRC mean the abuse investigation of the SBC is EXTREMELY tainted and agenda driven and Baptist leaders look to be either utterly ignorant or totally compromised with these forces and thereby delivering the SBC up like the fatted calf to the very forces who would love nothing more than to destroy it.

The Firm which appeared in the October 5th SBC Executive Committee meeting was Blank Rome which has an even MORE aggressive pro HCR/LGBTQ stance with HRC awards 6 years running https://www.blankrome.com/…/blank-rome-earns-perfect…

Blank Rome is VERY proud of its HRC standing. Blank Lord Hosted a webinar with the now terminated HRC President fired for ties to Cuomo abuse coverup .https://www.blankrome.com/…/triumphs-challenges-road…https://www.blankrome.com/alumni-spotlight

The firm sponsored the Unite For Equality Event for HRChttps://www.blankrome.com/events/unite-equalityBlank Rome even has a firm member listed as speaker in the upcoming 2022 Lavender Law Conference in LAhttps://lgbtqbar.org/annual/program/2019-speaker-bios/It just keeps getting worse with every revelation of the partners involved.

CONCLUSION

The end game of activist using sexual abuse and wrongdoing by church leadership and Christian leaders is not justice for victims. The endgame IS rebellion against Gods divine order for family, motherhood, gender roles and FAITH. Whether players like Keller and Katherine Leary Alsdorf, and their literal swarm of Faith and Work advocates realize it- this rebellion goes to very heart of God’s design for the church and the family and is little more than a repackaged socialist economics system of thought using the worn tools of the trade from the Frankfurt School and long time Atheistic haters of all things related to FAITH in GOD. It will not destroy true faith or the real Gospel but it does have the potential already being realized to destroy the institutional church in the West which is are well on it’s way to a self inflicted demise.

DAVID PLATT NOW JOINS THE REVOICE CREW PUSHING LGBTQ+ CHRISTIANITY /RACE / & RETHINKING HELL.

WITH DAVID PLATT JOINING THE INTERFIATH / MULTIFAITH DIALOG AND GLOBALIST IN RECENT MONTHS IT SHOULD BE NO SURPRISE FOR HIM TO TURN UP WITH PRESTON SPRINKLE AND THE REVOICE ADVOCATES OF LGBTQ CHRISTIANITY/RACIAL JUSTICE / DENYING ETERNAL JUDGEMENT.

Rev Thomas Littleton

11/16/2021

David Platt has been dancing with the stars on the heretical fringe for years now. He is already in an intense battle over his false justice gospel agenda at his present church McLane Bible. Recently his Radical Intensive /Stratus brand promoted the use of globalist “global goals” data to drive the social justice agenda in missions giving in order to address the so called “great imbalance”. Platts global data partners include World Economic Forum, World Bank, United Nations, CIA mapping and even OPEC.

Of course then he surfaced last month meeting with the leader of Muslim World League which according to one federal prosecutor is “perhaps the most significant Muslim Brotherhood (terrorist ) organization in the world.”

So where is David Platt the social justice warrior misleading his following now? Platt is set to appear in the upcoming 2022 conference for Revoice leader Preston Sprinkle “Theology in the Raw” -EXILES IN BABYLON in March.

https://www.prestonsprinkle.com/conference

Yes it is as bad as it sounds. Sprinkle is not only a long time leader in the “Revoice LGBTQ + Thriving in historically (conservative) churches” but he also heads The Center for Faith, Sexuality & Gender which schools churches on LGBQ inclusion. His upcoming conference which includes Platt will also feature another long time Revoice leader and author of “Single Gay Christian” Gregory Coles. Coles was the “worship leader” in the original Revoice conference which was first incubated in 2017 at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary where Albert Mohler employed its founder Nate Collins as a New Testament teacher. By 2020 the Revoice movements footholds in the PCA and at it’s flagship seminary Covenant (CTS) had SPLIT THE PCA denomination which is still in steep decline as its leadership cannot find the will to condemn the movements assertions of LGBTQ and “Queer Christianity”.

“To be a Christian is to be an exile. The Bible has a name for the country we’ve been exiled to: Babylon.As exiles living in Babylon, we need to think biblically, Christianly, indeed exilically—not partisanly—through cultural and political issues.”

“At the Theology in the Raw conference, we will be challenged to think like exiles about race, sexuality, gender, critical race theory, hell, transgender identities, climate change, creation care, American politics, and what it means to love your democratic or republican neighbor as yourself. Different viewswill be presented. No question is off limits. No political party will be praised. Everyone will be challenged to think. And Jesus will be upheld as supreme.”

ACCORDING TO SPRINKLE

He is “Super stoked about our line up of speakers and artists and Theology in the Raw’s “Exiles in Babylon” conference! March 30-April 2 (in Boise, ID or stream online). We’re going to discuss race, sex, gender, politics, hell, the gospel, and what it means to follow a peasant prophet-King crucified by the state for treason. Registration is filling up fast and space is limited! Go to my website to register. Worship will be truly multiethnic; attendees can pushback and ask questions. Come, bring your presuppositions and lay them at the door, and be challenged to think deeply and love widely.”

SPRINKLE ON REVOICE/IS IT SIN TO BE GAY? AND THE THEOLOGY IN THE RAW CONFERENCE

“Is it a sin to be gay? Would you attend a church that has a gay pastor? What does it mean to be gay? There is still a lot of misunderstanding surrounding the term gay and what it means to be a gay Christian. I discuss these issues at length, which leads into Misty Irons’ incredible talk she gave at this year’s Revoice Conference. “

Theology in the Raw Conference – Exiles in Babylon

MORE RACE AND LGBTQ ACTIVIST IN THE OFFERING WITH SPRINKLE

Sprinkle recently interviewed one of the primary inhouse racial activist on staff at SBTS Jarvis Williams in the Theology in the Raw interview series.

“I so enjoyed talking to my friend @drjjwilliams about his latest book “Redemptive Kingdom Diversity” on my recent @rawtheology podcast episode!”

“Jarvis is a friend and an incredible scholar. He has written and spoken extensively on issues related to race, ethnic reconciliation, and the gospel–which is the focus of our conversation. “

“Jarvis is Associate Professor of New Testament Interpretation at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he’s taught since 2013. He has published numerous books, including Christ Redeemed ‘Us’ from the Curse of the Law: A Jewish Martyrological Reading of Galatians 3:13 in the Library of New Testament Studies Monograph Series (T&T Clark, 2019), his commentary on Galatians in the New Covenant Commentary Series (Cascade, 2020), a commentary on Romans (IVP Academic, Submitted and Forthcoming 2021 or 2022), and his most recent book Redemptive Kingdom Diversity: A Biblical Theology of the People of God (Baker Academic, September 2021), which is the focus of our attention in this podcast.”

SOME OF THE LGBTQ “IDENTIFIED ” ACTIVIST “CHRISTIANS” INVOLVED IN “EXILES IN BABYLON” CONFERENCE INCLUDE

Dr. Greg Coles

“Gregory Coles is the author of Single, Gay, Christian (InterVarsity Press, 2017) and No Longer Strangers (InterVarsity Press, 2021). He holds a PhD in English from Penn State and lives in Idaho’s Treasure Valley, where he works as a writer and speaker.

Heather Skriba

“Heather lives in Indianapolis, Indiana and works in ABA clinic for kids with autism.  Since her story of gender identity, sexuality, and faith unfolded, she has become passionate about helping churches welcome and make space for LGBT people to thrive.”

AND OF COURSE THE TGC/ERLC FAVORITE JACKIE HILL PERRY

Jackie Hill Perry

“Jackie Hill Perry is an author, poet, bible teacher and hip-hop artist whose latest album, Crescendo, released in May 2018. Since becoming a Christian, she has been compelled to use her speaking and teaching gifts to share the light of the gospel of God as authentically as she can. She is the author of Gay Girl, Good God: The Story of Who I Was, and Who God Has Always Been and the bible study “Jude: Contending for the Faith in Today’s Culture”. At home she is a wife to Preston and Mommy to Eden and Autumn.”

SPRINKLE IS ALSO AN ADVOCATE OF “RETHINKING HELL ” AND HIS CONFERENCE WILL INCLUDING ONE OF THE LEADING THINKERS IN THE RETHINKING HELL MOVEMENT.

Chris Date

“Chris Date is a well-known evangelical Christian representative of a global movement known as Rethinking Hell (http://www.rethinkinghell.com) and a recognized specialist in the areas of Hell and Conditional Immortality (a.k.a. annihilationism). He’s co-editor of Rethinking Hell: Readings in Evangelical Conditionalism (Cascade, 2014) and contributing co-editor of A Consuming Passion: Essays on Hell and Immortality in Honor of Edward Fudge (Pickwick, 2015), and he’s a contributing co-editor with Paul Copan of an upcoming two-views book with IVP Academic.”

CONCLUSION

David Platt was one of the most popular Southern Baptist and evangelical pastors and speakers in America being the product of heavy promotion by the SBC & evangelical machine. His Radical brand has sold books & literally tons of study guides and Radical branding merch for two decades.

Now Platt is facing increasing exposure for his waltzing on the radical heretical fringe and false social justice gospel. He marched in DC during the Black Lives Matter protest and has been at the forefront of the effort to drive the church toward racist bigotry in the name of reconciliation and equity. Platt has joined the Globalist with pushing the church toward “Agenda 2030 Goals” of Sustainable Development with Lausanne Movement. Recently he launched deeper into error with “Multi faith” movement with Muslim Brotherhood organization and NOW with REVOICE LGBTQ + THRIVING. In the matter of Matthew 12 Jesus command to either make the tree good or make it evil- It appears David Platt has chosen the latter.

Matthew 12

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 [b]of his heart brings forth good things, and an evil man out of the evil treasure brings forth evil things. 36 But I say to you that for every idle word men may speak, they will give account of it in the day of judgment. 37 For by your words you will be justified, and by your words you will be condemned.”

MAVIN OLASKY, FORMER COMMUNIST-OUT AT WORLD MAGAZINE AFTER YEARS OF FLIRTING WITH CULTURAL MARXIST ADVOCATES.

FIRST PROGRESSIVE RUSSELL MOORE – NOW WORLD MAGAZINES “FORMER COMMUNIST” OLASKY ARE OUT OF THEIR BULLY PULPITS. NON STOP TRUMP VOTER BASHING AND THEIR STEADY PROGRESSIVE PARTNERSHIPS HAVE THEM SUFFERING A CREDIBILITY CRISIS.

Virtually no one in the evangelical press has been willing to call out Marvin Olasky for WALTZING AMONG THE LEFTIST ELITE except WORLDVIEW WEEKEND, Brannon Howse and this author at Thirty Pieces of Silver. But now Olasky has begun to reap his sowing his wild oats in the mushy middle with other evangelical leaders.

May be an image of text that says 'PATRICK PATRICK HENR PATRICK HENRY PATRICK PATRICK HENRY OLLEGE HENRY HENRY He COLLEGE OLLEGE COLLEG COL PATRICK PATRICK PATRICK PATRICK HENRY HENRY HENRY COLLEGE COLLEGE HENRY PATRICH PATRICK PATE HENRY HENRY COLLEGE HE OLLEĞE PATR PATR'
From WVW story “Marvin Olasky of World Magazine gives an affirmative interview at Patrick Henry College to Justin Giboney who is co-founder of the cultural Marxist And-Campaign and a Democratic strategist that was a delegate for President Obama.”

According to NY Times Marvin Olasky, long time editor of World Magazine, is out of a job. The Times blames the ouster on his anti- Trump rhetoric which the Times deemed “Biblical ” opposition. But it is far more likely his recent years of flirting with Obama Foundation and Democratic Party operatives which proved to be his downfall.

Olasky’s “compassionate conservatism” helped brand the Bush W era politics and policies including the dreaded and RUINOUS Faith Based Neighborhood Partnerships giving churches, denominations and Christian ministries access to federal grants. The church has NEVER recovered especially after the Obama administration revamped the FBNP to include radical LGBTQ funders and organizations along with Muslims activist. FPNB also allowed the far left evangelical wing nuts to sit down with conservatives like Southern Baptist Executive Committee CEO Frank Page and find “Common Ground for the Common Good…to get the public funding. This sweet spot of compromise set up conservative opposition for a fall -in fact resulting in an all out effort to collapse the Christian Conservatives into the left.

MARVIN’S TIDY FRIENDSHIP WITH CULTURAL MARXIST TRAINED OPERATIVES

If anyone should recognize a Cultural Marxist at work it would be a “former Communist” right? Not so for Marvin Olasky who boast in his testimony of conversion that he was a “card carrying” Communist by age 24 but came to faith after reading the New Testament in Russian. Olasky’s testimony gave him street cred among evangelicals and likely helped make him one of the key thought leaders among conservative evangelicals and Christian media via his positions at World Magazine and Patrick Henry College (Among many other places).

Olasky is reported to have disliked the rollout of the Bush W era FBNP he had helped inspire BUT Olasky has been uncomfortably familiar in his flirtatious relationships with the Obama era FBNP head evangelical recruiter Michael Wear who has become the Obama Foundations “Ambassador to America’s Believers”. Wear also played a key leadership role in the in the critical theory driven & Campaign’s “Biblical Values & Social Justice” movement which proved to be little more than THE key anti-Trump effort among evangelicals in the lead up to the 2020 election. The & Campaign is also lead by Democratic Party operative /Hillary and Obama delegate Justin Giboney. Both Giboney and Wear have been platformed and featured by Marvin Olasky in his roles at both World Magazine and Patrick Henry College.

FROM THE NEW YORK TIMES ARTICLE ON OLASKY’S DEPARTURE

“As the longtime editor of World, a Christian news organization that has a website, a biweekly magazine and a set of podcasts, Olasky has delivered a mix of hard news and watchdog articles about the evangelical realm under a journalistic philosophy he calls “biblical objectivity.”

It involves taking strong stands where the Bible is clear, which has led World to oppose abortion rights and support refugees, he says, and to follow reportable facts where the Bible doesn’t provide clear guidance.

The concept served Olasky well from 1994, when he became the editor of World, until Nov. 1, when he submitted his resignation.

He had, he said, received an effective “vote of no confidence” from World’s board, which had recently started a section of the website, World Opinions, without fully consulting him.”

…” And its founder, Joel Belz, told me he believed Olasky’s departure was simply an episode of “painful growing pains.”

SUPPOSEDLY MARVIN OLASKY IS OUT BECAUSE OF SOUTHERN BAPTIST ALBERT MOHLER. REALLY?

Note the NY Times eludes to the establishment of the World Opinions section which World just established and which Albert Mohler has been invited to help lead. This move was done, according to NY Times , “without consulting Olasky”. YET Olasky and Mohler both share in the spread of the social justice diseased false gospel work of Tim Keller’s “The Gospel Coalition”. Again Marvin Olasky works for /with the Action Institute which has brought the socialist economics based Social Justice curriculum to once conservative seminaries including Albert Mohler’s SBTS in the “Commonweal Project”. Olasky and Mohler still remain joined at the hip in the neo-Calvinist movement which birthed TGC and other progressive false gospel movements impacting conservative denominations like the SBC and the PCA. This would not have been possible without the presence of and expertise in doublespeak by editors like Olasky and TGC Joe Carter who also works with Olasky over at Patrick Henry College. The evangelical room has been filled with such activist agents of change for decades now.

FAKE NEWS OUTRAGE OVER OLASKY TERMINATION

A quick look at who is supporting Olasky after his ousting at World is helpful. New York Times is calling his opposition to Christian’s voting for Trump “Biblical”. Does anyone think NY Times cares about or is a good judge of what is “Biblical”? NYT is virtually passing out tissues for those still clueless enough to morn Olasky’s departure. Also there is a bit of fake Twitter outrage by a long time Acton Institute employee and semi closeted leftward activist Anthony Bradley . Bradley gives the Olasky departure press an even more glaring feel of political theater attempting to rescue Olasky’s image and failed conservative credibility.


Anthony B. Bradley, PhD@drantbradley
“Marvin Olasky is pushed out of WORLD magazine by Mohlerish SBCers. The PCA partnering with SBC leaders has done nothing but made PCA platforms & conversations worse. Again, fundamentalism is toxic. This so sad & I’m overwhelmingly angry.”

THIS AUTHORS RESPONSE SHOULD PROVE HELPFUL IN SEEING BRADLEY’S ERROR IN JUDGEMENT EVEN IF HE IS TRULY OUTRAGED FOR HIS ACTON COHORT.

Thomas Littleton@revcoltom· Replying to dr ant bradley Anthony The PCA “partnering ” with the SBC is because of Tim Keller’s progressive @TGC of which Mohler is a part. Marvin’s troubles go much deeper than a supposed “toxic SBC fundamentalism” or “opposition to Trump”. Olasky’s credibility wounds are self inflicted. A former Marxist -should have known better.

To blame Olasky’s problems on his friend and fellow mushy middle conservative talking head Albert Mohler is as absurd as it can get. To blame the PCA denominations terminal problems on the co-mingling of these two movements under the influence of “toxic fundamentalism” (supposedly controlled by Olasky TGC pal Mohlers “Mohlerish SBC’s) is so stupid we can only hope Acton’s Bradley is faking his views as well as his outrage. It is painful and intellectually insulting for anyone to have to read his assertions.

Olasky has problems because he has caused problems for World Magazine … which is likely having problems with its readership after years of Olasky’s flirtations with the left and its evangelical operatives.

NNDB FULL OLASKY BIOGRAPHY. HIS TESTIMONY OF CONVERSION FROM COMMUNISM GAVE HIM A LONG TIME VOICE AMONG CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIANS

AKA Marvin N. Olasky

Born: 12-Jun1950
Birthplace: Boston, MA

Gender: Male
Religion: Presbyterian
Race or Ethnicity: White
Sexual orientation: Straight
Occupation: PunditHistorianJournalist

Nationality: United States
Executive summary: The Tragedy of American Compassion

“Marvin Olasky stands as one of the first major intellectual successes in the American conservative movement, a man whose views on welfare were codified into law in the late 20th century. Born into a Jewish family in Boston, Marvin Olasky became an avowed Atheist and Marxist in high school and a member of the Communist party in 1972. While attending the University of Michigan, Olasky’s beliefs made a complete reversal after a spiritual awakening: either due to a decision to read the New Testament in Russian or a sudden existential crisis while reading Lenin, Olasky found himself a fervent supporter of the Christian conservative movement. He was baptized into the Presbyterian church in 1976; in 1992 he helped found the Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Austin, TX.

Olasky has taught in the journalism department at the University of Texas at Austin since 1983, becoming a full professor in 1993. Midway through his term as associate professor, he came to the attention of Reconstructionist philanthropist Howard Ahmanson, Jr., who gave him the editorship of the Turning Point series of books via his charitable arm, the Fieldstead Institute. Olasky wrote its first installment, A Christian Worldview Declaration (1987), as well as the Capital Research Center series Patterns of Corporate Philanthropy.

This initial work brought him to the attention of the Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation, which funded him as a two-year Bradley scholar at the The Heritage Foundation. His two 1988 books on the mass media, Prodigal Press: The Anti-Christian Bias of American News Media and The Press and Abortion, 1838-1988 outlined philosophies that harmonized with the Christian agenda of World magazine, of which he became editor in 1992. He was instrumental in that periodical’s 1998 spawning of the World Journalism Institute, which seeks to recruit and train Christian journalists and inject them into the mainstream media.

He has since written over 16 books, most notably The Tragedy of American Compassion (1992), which blamed the countercultural revolution of the 1960s for society’s ills thirty years later and claimed that welfare needed a basis in Christianity if it was to have any lasting effect. The book gained the endorsement of William Bennett, who passed it on to Newt Gingrich, who in turn shilled it to every Republican in the House of Representatives. In January 2001, he saw the policies outlined in this book put into law with the creation of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Community Initiatives. George W. Bush has called him “compassoniate conservatism’s leading thinker”; in 1999, he chaired an advisory subcommittee on religion and public policy for the then-governor.”

CONCLUSION

Russell Moore is out of the SBC and it’s Ethics arm the ERLC. The World Magazine board has purged itself of Marvin Olasky. We can only hope and pray it is a trend which is just getting started. Even if World and SBC leaders are attempting to save face and or retain their audiences -their motives are not quiet as important as the fact that both of the compromised voices are gone except for their sour grapes commentaries from far more progressive publications like Christianity Today.

We must pray it is the start of a trend and more of the well placed compromisers aiding in the deconstruction of conservative evangelicalism and who are being exposed will be sharpening up their resumes. Keep Praying.

RUSSELL MOORE JOINS DAVID AXELROD ON NEW CNN SHOW TO ACCUSE “RADICALIZED ” CHRISTIANS.

AFTER BEING BOOTED FROM THE ERLC, RADICALIZED LIBERAL ACCUSER RUSSELL MOORE JUST KEEPS EXPOSING HIMSELF.

Thanks to Albert Mohler who mentored employed and promoted Russell Moore for nearly 3 decades, Southern Baptist now have a well credentialed professional theological accuser in the public square to point fingers at them.

THE LATEST ON MOORE AND THE COMPANY HE KEEPS

David Axelrod@davidaxelrod“10 yrs ago, I’d have parents concerned about their children losing their faith. Now I’m hearing adult children who are saying, ‘What do I do w/my mom & dad who’ve become radicalized on Facebook?’” @drmoore on radicalization among evangelicals #AxeFiles: https://link.chtbl.com/V-72qzJt

MOORE ON THOSE TRUMP VOTERS IN THE CHURCH

“Public theologian Russell Moore has long encouraged evangelical Christians to focus on practicing religion rather than engaging in culture wars, something he found increasingly difficult under former President Donald Trump. Moore left his leadership post at the Southern Baptist Convention earlier this year and now works for Christianity Today. He joined David to talk about how working for a conservative Democratic congressman on Capitol Hill reaffirmed his belief in the possibility of politics, why his dad didn’t want him joining the ministry, and why he felt compelled to call out issues he saw in the church, even as it led to his departure from the SBC.”

Russell Moore speaks on a panel moderated by columnists Sally Quinn and E.J. Dionne on June 20, 2017 in Washington, DC.

CNN COVERED THE INTERVIEW…WHICH WAS ON CNN.

“(CNN)Public theologian Russell Moore, a prominent evangelical leader who was an early critic of Donald Trump, says he doesn’t see support for the former GOP president waning and warns that it is “entirely possible” that Trump could seek the White House again and win.”I don’t think he’s had any change in terms of the support that he has. The question is, is there an alternative? And in looking around the Republican Party right now, it certainly is hard to see who could be an alternative for people’s- for people’s loyalty and votes. So I think it’s- I think it’s entirely possible that he could run in 2024 and win,” Moore said, speaking with David Axelrod on “The Axe Files” podcast.Moore said when he first spoke out in 2015 against then-presidential candidate Trump, most people in the evangelical social-conservative world, who would later be among Trump’s key supporters, agreed with him. But then, Moore said, he noticed a shift among evangelicals — “not because Donald Trump changed, but because he started winning.”

“He said he saw the decision as “choosing between my conscience under Christ and saying things that I didn’t believe. So it would have been- it would have been easy to say, well, this is who most of our people, this is who they’re with, and so I’m going to get on board. But to do that, I would have, I couldn’t have done it. I couldn’t have lived with myself,” he said.”

“Moore was heading the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, the public policy arm of the nation’s largest Protestant denomination. Moore left the role this year and now works for Christianity Today.”

WHO IS DAVID AXELROD?

“In 1984, David Axelrod’s campaign management team helped win Congressman Paul Simon a seat in the U.S. Senate. Axelrod has since led successful campaigns for numerous Democrats, and his client roster includes such names as Bill and Hillary Clinton. Axelrod has also gained national repute for helping African-American politicians get elected in landmark victories, most notably Barack Obama. Axelrod served as senior advisor to President Barack Obama, senior advisor to the Obama-Biden Presidential Transition, senior strategist to Barack Obama’s historic campaign for the presidency in 2008 and his 2012 re-election campaign. Today he serves as the Director, Institute of Politics at the University of Chicago.”

OBAMA CAME FROM THE CHICAGO POLITICAL MACHINE

Now Russell Moore shows himself at home in the realm of Chicago politics where he can bash Christians for their political views.

“The University of Chicago Institute of Politics occupies a rare place in America’s higher education landscape, offering our students pathways to civic engagement, opportunities for service, and a home for civil discourse and free expression.”

Our Mission

“The nonpartisan Institute of Politics is committed to fostering in our students a passion for public service, meaningful dialogue and active engagement in our democracy.”

RUSSELL MOORE IS ACTUALLY LISTED AMONG THE FELLOWS OF THE UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO /AXELROD INSTITUTE OF POLITICS

Russell Moore

“Public Theologian and Director of the Public Theology Project at Christianity Today”

“Through “Evangelical Religion in American Politics and Culture” seminars, he will speak to the complicated relationship between American religion – particularly in its evangelical Protestant form – and the current political and cultural landscape.”

WHERE ELSE IS RUSSELL THESE DAYS ?

Russell Moore also has his own new program called “The Russell Moore Show”.

MOORE AND MOORE TOOK THE LOW ROAD AS VICTIMS

“NASHVILLE (RNS) — Two of the best-known ex-Southern Baptist leaders in the country got together at a Nashville church on Thursday (Sept. 9) for a night filled with Bible verses, banter and bittersweet memories.”

“The event, entitled “Lessons in Leaving (and Staying),” featured Bible teacher Beth Moore and ethicist Russell Moore — and was the first live event for a new Public Theology Project from Christianity Today magazine, where Russell Moore landed after leaving the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission.”

CONCLUSION

It is really all about politics isn’t it … and about the nasty habit of conservative Christians voting pro life pro family and Republican? In the end of the discussion it is really all about the political establishment of which Moore is a part, and their deep hatred of President Donald Trump and those Christians who support him.

Russell Moore is an avid “never Trumper” and a Mississippi Democrat. Now he is a full fledged member of the Chicago thug Democrat machine. Congratulations.

Moore has a need to be heard and Baptist have funded the need for years. Mike Huckabee famously ask “How long will Baptist pay Russell Moore to insult them?” At least now he is on Christianity Today’s payroll and whoever else will hire him to do what he does.
