APOSTASY RISING:WHY YOU SHOULD NOT RETURN TO YOUR CHURCH

IF YOU ARE MEMBER OF A CHURCH WHICH AFFILIATES WITH THE GOSPEL COALITION OR IT’S VIRAL FELLOW ORGANIZATIONS YOU SHOULD SEEK A NEW CHURCH HOME.
Rev Thomas Littleton                                                                                 5/11/2020
Sanctuaries have been empty as Christians the world over have been unable to attend their churches for around 8 weeks now. For some it has been even longer. However in this period of church lock outs many have returned to family devotions, personal Bible study and prayer. That is a wonderful “trend”. Still another GREAT opportunity exist for those concerned with the leftward drift of the church. After the Covid-19 shut down and lock out ..it is time to find a new church NOT INFECTED  with the virus of The Gospel Coalition and it’s affiliates.
Coronavirus PANDEMIC RESPONSE  and overreach which forced the shutdown of church meetings could be a great opportunity to move on from the RISING APOSTASY in churches affiliated with these errors.
REALITY CHECK -If you do not return, in the end, the only thing they may miss is your money.

TGC : THE EVANGELICAL DEEP STATE VIRUS 

Since this writer first named the subversive forces at work in the church as the “EVANGELICAL DEEP STATE” in 2015 -the concept of the workings and goals of such an organization behind the scenes manipulating the church has become a regular theme of writers and alternative media. The church is under assault from within. Make no mistake. Forces from outside the House of God are bearing down upon it HEAVILY. TGC is not the ONLY  culprit yet-NO OTHER ORGANIZATION illustrates or reveals the presence of the Evangelical Deep State like The Gospel Coalition. It is ruining the churches…yours, mine, ours and if you are in a TGC church you need to get your family OUT OF IT.

(PERSONAL NOTE: I have been researching and writing these articles since about 2013/2014 when we discovered these corruptions manifesting in our own church and it’s Christian School. The church had been known for evangelism and discipleship and its conservative biblical stand on social issues for decades. My wife grew up there and graduated from its Christian school.
We had a 2 year old son and were thinking of sending him to the same school. We made our first mistake in assuming the church was the same one my wife had grown up in and came to faith under as a child. We were wrong. The church had come under the leadership of a John MacArthur ( a TGC /T4G leader) /Master’s College & Seminary Board member and pastor for a number of years. The conservative evangelistic founding pastor was retired. The doctrines now central to the church were Neo -Calvinism,, Community Development, (the pastor had already split the church attempting to implement Purpose Driven errors.) and Elder Rule. Unknown to most in the church- it’s pastor had joined The Gospel Coalition. The first time visitor packets now contained John Piper books and Tim Keller propaganda.EVERYTHING WAS CHANGING RAPIDLY.
The church had converted by 2011 (just before we sadly wandered back through it’s doors) from congregational led to “Elder Rule” using the TGC/ MacArthur models including Church Covenants and severely altered bylaws. Unaware of the deep affiliations and assuming the best based on the stated vision and messaging of the new style leadership – we joined . We simply were thinking we would educate our son there and carefully disciple him in spite of the obvious Neo-Calvinist influences. We did  not know nor were we informed of the churches TGC membership. Virtually no one in the church outside the elders and pastors knew of TGC affiliation. We intended to disciple our son without contaminating him with Neo-Calvinism and still find some stability for our family in what we thought the church and school still represented. Little did we know how impossible that simple intention would be.
What followed for my wife and son was a front line discovery of how problematic, deceptive, abusive, heavy handed, scheming, delusional, coordinated, complicit, corrupt, intentional, organized, manifold, far reaching, unbiblical, greedy, and unsavory the entire church vision, it’s leadership/staff/elders had become once INFECTED with the virus known as THE GOSPEL COALITION. Sparing the details of our experience I will provide below the realities of what TGC has and is doing to your church/ to all our churches and WHY you should not return AFTER THE COVID-19 CHURCH SHUT OUT.  ALL of these assertions are well documented on this site in the years of research that followed.

TGC CHURCHES ARE FILLED WITH CHANGE AGENTS

The Gospel Coalition was founded in 2006 by Tim Keller and D.A. Carson. It has many affiliated organizations, ministries, big name preachers, and planting organizations On the surface it appears to be just another virtual preacher frat house PROMOTING  their ideology. But their influence in the seminaries, Christian media,and across denominational lines make TGC the perfect breeding ground for the viral infection of Neo-Calvinism and it’s politics and change agent agenda.
MAKE NO MISTAKE TGC vision is and has always been to change the church.
It’s doctrines serve to spread its real CONTAGION – PROGRESSIVE POLITICS  and EMERGENT Christianity ERROR. In TGC conferences, publications and social media the ideologies of the group have spread like Coronavirus on a CDC computer model. Once Young Restless and Reformed, now middle-aged spokesperson for TGC ,Collin Hansen explained the political and social change /change agent agenda of TGC and why it was founded in this March 6th 2018 interview with ABC’s UN-Comfortable program.
— — Collin Hansen says he’s watched with confusion as leaders from his evangelical Christian community staunchly defend President Donald Trump.”“You used to think morality is important. Now, morality is not important. You used to think repentance is important,” said Hansen. “President Trump says that he’s never had anything to ask forgiveness for. I mean it is very confusing.”

“For the Alabama-based editorial director of the Gospel Coalition, a network of evangelical churches in America, the head-scratching has now given way to alarm. Hansen believes the inability of public figures like Jerry Falwell Jr. and Tony Perkins to maintain their moral credibility by continuing to defend offensive or un-Christian behavior by Trump is a threat to the church itself.”

TGC IS  -MIDDLE-AGED AGNST AGAINST AGING CONSERVATIVE PARENTS POLITICS

Bottom line revealed in the interview is that Collin Hansen confirmed TGC exists because it answers the “bad” politics of the church which allowed it’s members to elect someone like President Donald Trump. Follow closely and you we see the interviewer set up the play for Hansen to spike the ball in this revealing interview on the political and change agent agenda of TGC.
The arrogance of TGC’s assumptions of self importance are glaring. TGC was designed to fuel and facilitate the rebellion of your progressive /post modern Christian CHILDREN to the “outmoded ” Christianity of their aging parents and transform their churches to fit the new hipster/ hip hop / relevant “communities “the next -gen crave. Churches are being made over in the image of TGC.
FEW pastors are isolated from the pervasive infectious influences of TGC.

TGC CHURCHES ARE FILLING THE CHURCH / SAINTS WITH FALSE DOCTRINES & IDEOLOGIES

Just to name a few without EXPLAINING here. These issues have been documented in the many articles and research provided on this site and others.

NEO-CALVINISM
SOCIAL JUSTICE GOSPEL- A CALL TO FACILITATING EQUITY
REVOICED -AN LGBTQ THRIVING IN THE CHURCH
DOMINIONISM
CRITICAL THEORY / RACE THEORY/ GENDER THEORY/QUEER THEORY IN SEMINARIES
RACE BAITING IN THE NAME OF RECONCILIATION
IMMIGRATION OPEN BORDERS PRO-ISLAM MASKED AS COMPASSION FOR REFUGEES
FAITH BASED PARTNERSHIPS -GOVERNMENT AND FOUNDATION CHURCH GRANTS
(FEMA, HHS, HUD, DHLS, AND MORE IN LONG TERM PARTNERSHIPS WITH TGC CHURCHES.)
ONGOING FUNDING FROM GOVERNMENT & PRIVATE FOUNDATIONS
COMMUNITARIANISM- ALL FOR THE “COMMON GOOD” AND “HUMAN FLOURISHING”
COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT AND SOCIAL SERVICES THROUGH THE CHURCH
ANTI-NATIONALISM- AMERICA LAST BUT MAKE SURE TO WRITE THE CHECK IN US DOLLARS.
IDOLATRY OF THE NUCLEAR FAMILY.ROOTED IN FEMINIST AND QUEER THEORY.
(YOUR TGC CULT LIKE CHURCH IS “YOUR REAL FAMILY”)
PRO- ADOPTION AND FOSTER CARE /WHILE WEAKENING PRO-LIFE FOCUS
ALL THESE ERRORS AND MORE ARE BEING PACKAGED AS THE GOSPEL CALLING AND MISSION OF THE CHURCH IN TGC AND AFFILIATED ORGANIZATIONS .

TGC FOUNDER KELLER FLIRTY ASSOCIATIONS WITH THE LEFT.

TGC founder Tim Keller has shown a cherished relationship to the left. He lauds the “biblical values ” reflected in the social justice policies of the Democratic Party platform. Keller took two of his disciples to the Obama White House in 2012 promising to aid in bringing the churches into”Good Faith” cooperation with Obama’s radical second term goals. Keller’s meeting and his role as a modern day Balaam (the false prophet who helped a wicked king ensnare the people of God during their wilderness wanderings) with Obama are recounted in a book by the same name.

Good Faith: Being a Christian When Society Thinks You’re Irrelevant and Extreme 

 

THE NEW RELIGIOUS LIBERTY

TGC churches follow the political engagement of “religious ethics experts” like another modern day Balaam -Russell Moore of the Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission. Moore has been in his seat as President of the ERLC since 2013 which is the same time that massive amounts of funding from outside the church solidified  it’s inroads into the church via the seminaries.

MOORE AND LGBTQ REVOICING THE CONVERSATION

Moore is pro -Revoice , letting his underlings promote and work with LGBTQ  thriving in the historically conservative churches like his own SBC and  conservative PCA .He even hosted the 2014 event changing the entire conversation and response to LGBTQ just months before gay marriage became the law of the land. Most of the current herd of Same Sex desiring/ bemoaning change agents in TGC were brought into the conversation by Russell Moore and his mentor TGC leader Albert Mohler of SBTS BY 2014.

MOORE THE TGC RACE BAITER

Moore promotes radical racial “reconciliation ” with TGC in meetings like the TGC/ERLC cosponsored MLK/50 event in Memphis where Critical Race Theory, White Guilt, Privilege Repentance , and redistribution /reparations were promoted as “Gospel Issues”. Moore accused Southern Christians as being guilty  of the worship of “Jim Crow as Jesus”.

MOORE -MORE MUSLIMS IN WESTWARD EXPANSION

Russell Moore is pro open borders immigration working with the Evangelical Immigration Round Table of National Immigration Forum with Obama Era leaders and the funding of billionaires like Soros , Paul Singer (also massive LGBTQ funder) Ebay founder progressive Muslim, Pierre Omidyar. The plight of the Muslim “Refugee” is the welcome mat for massive funding for “refugee resettlement” for organizations like World Vision and World Relief and for Moore’s own SBC domestic and foreign missions arms NAMB and IMB.

MOORE AND MO MONEY

Moore, like Balaam, has no problem  with taking funds from these modern day seducers. Being a friend and agent of Balak is still as profitable as it ever was. Despite the obvious damage done to both culture and Christian faith in Europe form years of pro Islamic immigration policies there- our Balaam Moore is teaching leaders here in the art of seduction of American Christians. TGC churches have drunk deep of this lavishly deceptive kool-aide.

RELIGIOUS LIBERTIES CHAMPION MAY AS WELL BE JUDAS ISCARIOT

Moore’s policies and politics are birthing a whole new vision of Religious Liberty wed with, shaped, redefined, and subordinated to LGBTQ ” RIGHTS”, Islamic proliferation, economic/social  equity ALL assuring protections for everyone’s Religious Liberty “in a pluralistic society”. Moore is a Democrat, former staffer for a Democratic Congressman in Mississippi and is very close to the Obama Administration and NOW Obama  Foundation operatives like Michael Wear. Wear is also a “TGC thought leader”.

The progressive “& Campaign” and the Interfaith Dialog “Neighborly Faith ” both have TGC and ERLC leadership involved. The NEW  political tone and call for CIVILITY  and PLURALISM  are all carefully designed to move the church left politically and paint Christian Religious Liberty into a tiny corner subjected to the definitions and boundaries of it’s most ardent opposition like LGBTQ Equality, Social Equity and Islam .

REVELATION 2:14 

“But I have a few things against you, because you have there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumbling block before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed to idols, and to commit fornication.”

TGC CHURCHES ABUSE AUTHORITY

PLURALITY OF “RULING ELDERS”
Elder Rule is touted as THE Biblical model for church leadership. Like our own former church, TGC congregants are encouraged to surrender leadership of the church from the congregation to selected- “elected” elder board who make the decisions about hiring staff, vision casting, finances, debt, expansion, etc FOR the church and then present them for “CONGREGATIONAL AFFIRMATION “.Such men are presented as beyond questioning in their integrity in spite of the many failings of TGC elders /church leaders to address openly lustful and adulterous pastors, child sexual abuse cover ups and financial mis-dealings by their stable of leaders.
POLITICAL ENGAGEMENT OUR WAY OR NO WAY
TGC leader’s like Mark Dever  and editor underling Jonathan Leeman and their affiliated organizations like 9MARKS – FOCUS HEAVILY ON  planting churches with a “plurality of elders”. In multiple “conversations ” Dever and Leeman discuss the need for the elders to help shape the political engagement and even advise congregants on how to vote. Leeman’s  2018 Book on the subject is used repeatedly to reinforce this effort, as do a host of other TGC writers. TGC leader Thabiti Anyabwile recent “Just Gospel ” conference, part of his Front Porch outreach, shamelessly promotes the same Third Way politics of the TGC political chorus .
ARBITRATION ABUSES
Converting to Elder Rule means rewriting the bylaws of the church. These bylaws are carefully crafted to secure control of the church. They establish a POWER GRID and entrench elders to run the church and control any and all opposition. The abuses of this are rampant and the victims now litter the evangelical landscape. Members of these TGC churches have no options but to submit…or else . Institutions like the seminaries are under similar tyrannical authoritarian models including requirement of Non Disclosure Agreements  (NDAs) which enforce and ensure silence on the part of the institutions abused victims.
Question anything and YOU  are the problem. Failure to remain quiet after your concerns are expressed to the appropriate leadership and you WILL be fast tracked into   arbitration and eventual church discipline. This will lead to EXCOMMUNICATION and PUBLIC SHAMING, calls for you to be SHUNNED by congregants and other Christians and you will remain “under discipline” until you show public repentance for questioning the authority of the RULING ELDERS  in your TGC church. They proactively call for your church to shun and shame you and spread the word to other churches in your city and region to shame- shun and deny you membership and even communion.
Sound Catholic? It is…and DEMONIC!
Plus these new  bylaws and documents like Church Covenants for new members are carefully crafted by TGC thinkers to sound Biblical and theologically astute and accurate. BUT they are also crafted by attorneys and are designed to allow for the excessive power grab of the Ruling Elders making them the “only legal members of the church ” while  insulating them from lawsuits.
The New Testament church did not consult Attorneys to design bylaws and covenants  did they?  NO. SHOULD it ? NEVER !
ARBITRATION IS THE END OF THE ROAD FOR YOU IF YOU WILL NOT ALLOW LEGITIMATE CONCERNS TO BE BURIED – AND ARE “DISCIPLINED” BY YOUR RULING ELDERS.
Many organizations “train ” and “coach”elder leaders in the “process of conciliation ” and arbitration which the member has already agreed to WHEN signing the church covenant designed by the church attorney. ZERO options exist.
MANY newly affiliated TGC churches are even requiring long time or lifetime members to go back through some MEMBERSHIP PROTOCOLS simply to ensure the signatures are on the church covenants to empower the elder RULE. Several churches in this authors area have split over this TGC practice .
Admittedly many churches have elder rule models that have been based on purely Biblical principle and guidelines. BUT these models did not require such heavy handed application, attorney involvement or arbitration agreements.
YOU CANNOT MAKE THIS BIBLICAL BY WRAPPING BIBLE VERSES AROUND IT .

THE “ARBITRATION INDUSTRY “

Samples of some church arbitration organizations:
BOTTOM LINE- Submit to the TGC powers or you are a “bad Christian”. Any show of Frustration that arises from the heavy handed authority or circular process ,once manifested, proves that you and your attitude of depression or anger is in fact the problem. The real concerns are then buried in the process and you may be “suicidal if depressed” with the process or “homicidal if angry” with the process.
One organization- Peacemakers even has a METER gauging your response for proof that intervention is needed. It is a railroaded process that will make the concerned believers head spin leaving them wondering how they found themselves in arbitration and under elder threats for simply expressing legitimate concern.
NOT ONLY are the legal thinkers involved in the development of these conciliation ministries and process BUT psychology , sociology and profiling from the social sciences play a MAJOR ROLE IN THEIR DEVELOPMENT. Virtually every response is anticipated and accounted for except for those refusing to fear false authority and who have caught the ruling elders and staff in as many lies as possible.At this point the usurpers rely on the last possible tools to silence the opposition …they LIE.
CHURCH COVENANTS  ARE A LICENSE TO ABUSE :DON’T SIGN ONE EVER !
LAWYERS DRAFT THESE BYLAWS AND COVENANTS … NOT SCRIPTURE.
Note : It has been pointed out that many churches in the TGC circles operate like Scientology and are VERY “CULT LIKE” in their demands for control and arbitration
CRITICISM OF PEACEMAKER /ARBITRATION FROM SOME VICTIMS OF IT

TGC CHURCH PASTORS ARE  GRADUATES OF INFECTED SEMINARIES

The money, ideology, methodology behind the deconstruction of the Seminaries is detailed at length HERE:

The affiliated Seminaries and Christian Colleges are listed here in one of the funding organizations which oversee it’s curriculum and social justice agenda .
IF YOU SEE THE CONCERNS WITH TGC INFLUENCE- THEN YOU DO NOT WANT TO HIRE STAFF FROM OR BE MEMBERS OF A CHURCH WITH GRADUATES OF THESE INSTITUTIONS IN RECENT YEARS.

TGC CHURCHES HAVE MASS MEDIA AND CURRICULUM IN THEIR CONTROL

Christianity Today is just one example of the pervasive influence of TGC on /in Christian media. Most outlets are saturated, Keep them around only as alternative to the next pandemic inspired RUN ON TOILET PAPER . It might be useful then like the Sears and Roebuck Catalog during the Depression.

LIFEWAY  and other curriculum providers affiliated with TGC .as well as TGCs own massive curriculum studies  play a key role in indoctrination  of the flock with their materials. BURN IT!

TGC HAS DEVOURED TWO MAJOR DENOMINATIONS- SBC AND PCA

TGC has proliferated along side the Neo-Reformed movement in the Southern Baptist Convention and Presbyterian Church of America . Both were once social conservative and evangelistic. NOW these two denominations have experienced  near total saturation as have their missions organizations and educational institutions and media. MOST if not all of the well known and influential pastors in these denominations are TGC leadership council members. SUGGESTION-TURN OFF THEIR BROADCAST AND BURN THEIR BOOKS.

TGC CHURCH PLANTING :WHY YOUR CHURCH MAY NOT MATTER AT ALL.

TGC REVITALIZATION – PLANTING ON TOP OF YOUR CHURCH & OWNING IT’S ASSETS
If your church has allowed one of the TGC planting organizations like ACTS 29/ 9MARKS / Embers to Flames / Send Network/ or any other TGC affiliated planting organization to sell it’s vision of revitalization to your church THEN your church is now part of the TGC ideology. Get OUT of it. LEAVE. DON’T RETURN

TGC/KELLER AND STETZER GOING AFTER YOUR 4-14 YEAR OLD IN THE 4/14 WINDOW

This is the most criminal activity of all TGC leaders like Tim Keller and Ed Stetzer and their many brainwashed and indoctrinated disciples. Besides going after the hearts and minds of your adult children in the Christian Universities and Seminaries with SOCIALIST  ECONOMICS of Faith and Work and Global Goals of the UN , their target groups also include much much younger audience .

https://www.theologyofwork.org/the-high-calling/daily-reflection/do-you-know-about-414-window

This is ” A MILL STONE OFFENSE”.

These LEADERSHIP OF TGC are promoting the targeting of your 4-14 year old children and grandchildren right under your noses- with your tithe money IN YOUR OWN CHURCH.

(NOTE: Our son was given the TGC affiliated curriculum of Ed Stetzer in preschool class at our former church .It is called  The Gospel Project and is laced with TGC ideology.)

TGC CHURCHES AND SOCIAL JUSTICE ECONOMICS -FAITH AND WORK HERESY

TGC IS ROBBING YOUR PASTORS OF THEIR CALLING AND THE GOSPEL WHILE ROBBING YOU AND YOUR FAMILY OF YOUR CHURCH, YOUR FAITH , YOUR FUNDS AND YOUR CHILDREN’S FUTURE

CONCLUSION : MONEY INSPIRES THE VISION

TGC IS A THEOLOGICALLY EMERGENT -PROGRESSIVE POLITICAL ORGANIZATION OUT TO MOVE YOU AND YOUR CHURCH LEFTWARD POLITICALLY.
The flood of money into the denominational organizations, missions and educational institutions is enormous. A vast network of private foundations exist willing to both accelerate the churches leftward drift and co opt it’s assets ,human and  financial, for their vision. They CARE NOT for your Christian faith or the WORD  of God BUT they do desire to both remove forces like the churches Biblical conviction which hinder their global visions and are willing to harness them if possible into an APOSTATE CHURCH  that will ultimately be a part of FURTHERING  the unthinkable / anti-christ vision they pursue.
THE GOSPEL COALITION IS AN AGENT OF APOSTASY.
ABANDON IT AND ITS BASTARD / ILLEGITIMATE  OFFSPRING.
REVELATION 17

3″ So he carried me away in the Spirit into the wilderness. And I saw a woman sitting on a scarlet beast which was full of names of blasphemy, having seven heads and ten horns. The woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls, having in her hand a golden cup full of abominations and the filthiness of her fornication. And on her forehead a name was written:

MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT,
THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS
AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS
OF THE EARTH.

6 “I saw the woman, drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with great amazement.”

15 “Then he said to me, “The waters which you saw, where the harlot sits, are peoples, multitudes, nations, and tongues. 16 And the ten horns which you [g]saw on the beast, these will hate the harlot, make her desolate and naked, eat her flesh and burn her with fire. 17 For God has put it into their hearts to fulfill His purpose, to be of one mind, and to give their kingdom to the beast, until the words of God are fulfilled. 18 And the woman whom you saw is that great city which reigns over the kings of the earth.”

EVANGELICAL PANDEMIC PARTNERS: THE FUTURE OF GLOBAL CORRUPTION

RICK WARREN / ED STETZER AND A PLETHORA OF NORTH AMERICAN MISSIONS BOARD FORCES JOIN LEADERSHIP NETWORK TO PARTNER IN PANDEMICS .

Rev Thomas Littleton                                                                                                          4/27/2020

The Covid -19 crisis of Spring 2020 has (temporarily ) usurped the world it’s freedom and economy, religious services and mobility. The world is now positioned and preconditioned to “respond” to a repeat of the Global Pandemic experts at every mention of the P Word. Trillions in new debt have been created. Control on a global scale has been tasted by powerful people who possess an insatiable lust for it. An entire new industry is emerging and key evangelical leaders and organizations have postured the church to become part of it.
Now FEAR is the common currency of the global Pandemic Culture.
Going into Spring of 2020 the reports of a possible 68,000,000 deaths and the rapid infection rates brought the WORLD TO A SCREECHING HALT TO AVERT disaster named the Covid 2019 Pandemic. Fears were confirmed with every new positive from the testing once it began at the end of the Flu season. BUT at long last by the third week of April testing for anti-bodies proved in 1st in LA County and by weeks end in New York City that the nasty little virus had BEEN with us …likely all season and that “320,000  in LA County ” and a full “1/5 of New York City ” population had been infected and recovered based on the anti-bodies testing.

THE HARD FACTS

PANDEMIC NUMBERS WERE WAY OFF AND NOW WE KNOW IT IF WE DO THE MATH.
The Pandemic Partners have surfaced which drive the Global Pandemic Industry.
Funding comes from billionaires ,most significantly Bill Gates and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Health organizations like Centers for Disease Control, World Health Organization,  and experts like Dr. Anthony Fauci help project and crunch the numbers while providing worse case scenarios. Regular Pandemic updates give a daily fix of fear and projections for long term isolation and total lock down “FOR THE NEXT 18 MONTHS ” and or the “return of the Virus as soon as this Fall. “

PANDEMICS ARE THE FUTURE

Many including this writer had noted the readiness of organizations associated with Global Health being quick to label various strains of the Coronavirus as PANDEMICS  when only a hundred or so infections were reported. There are two certainties in what has become the Global Pandemic Industry :

1.Lots of funding is associated with talk of a Pandemic both for “Research” & “Response”.

2.Global Pandemics have a clear and decided political alliance with the LEFT and Global politics driving Global Economic, Global Health , Global Governance and Sustainability.

POLITICS OF PANDEMICS

“2020 is an election year and President Trump is hated by globalist. ANY liberal news outlet will be glad to confirm this assertion in their daily headlines. Trump can “do nothing right” in his Pandemic response because he is in part hated because he has removed the US and it’s economy from the Sustainability cult.Greedy leaders in the Paris Accord and other GSDG efforts which have their claws on the necks of Europe and other left leaning or dependent countries ,want control of the US economic engine .”
REOPENING THE WORLD’S ECONOMY IS NOW VIEWED THROUGH THE LENS OF “ECONOMIC INEQUITY”.
Talk of global DIGITAL CURRENCIES, Global Governance, Mandatory Vaccinations tracking humans by their mobile phones and or Micro Chips were once the topic of hushed conversations and conspiracy sites . But now they are ALL part of the the tolls of the trade for political projections, in the CARES Act / Pandemic bailouts and central to the Pandemic Crisis Response.
DARING TO REOPEN THE WORLDS ECONOMY MEANS A SET BACK TO “GLOBAL SUSTAINABILITY GOALS” AND “POPULATION CONCERNS”.
THIS IS ONE KEY REASON FUNDING FOR PLANNED PARENTHOOD IS ALWAYS AT THE TOP OF THE LIST
IT IS THE NUMBER 1 REASON THE TRUE CHURCH CANNOT SHARE A MISSION WITH GLOBAL GOALS DREAMERS AND PANDEMIC COORDINATORS.

THE MASK HAS SLIPPED

Late in the Covid -19 saga  W.H.O. has been exposed for the overfed and bloated political beast some reported it to be. Trump is now withholding funding from WHO for being very far off on it’s Covid projections and for it’s longstanding partnership with and protection of China in it’s cover up of the Corona outbreak.
Also Dr Fauci is  a long time player in creating the global AIDS INDUSTRY. He is now known to have worked with and been funded by the Gates Foundation and alleged to have funded ,as late as 2015 , the Wuhan Lab where Covid -19 is thought to have originated.
Gates operatives and funding organizations like the John Hopkins Center for Health Security RAN an October 2019 “Pandemic Exercise” MOCK UP called “Event 201 ” which looks disturbingly like the dress rehearsal for the current “crisis “.
So there are many behind the scenes realities which have come to light.
The one JUST NOW STARTING TO SURFACE  is the long time EVANGELICAL PARTNERS WITH THESE GLOBALIST  forces especially in the area of “Global Health .

ENTER CENTER STAGE -THE EVANGELICAL PANDEMIC PARTNERS

By late MARCH 2020  the partnerships for ONGOING PANDEMIC RESPONSE COORDINATION  by “Christian ” leaders and organizations surfaced
Wheaton’ Billy Graham Center is the HUB of EVANGELICAL PANDEMIC PARTNERS
Ed Stetzer and Rick Warrren/ PEACE Plan are teaming with the Southern Baptist North American Missions Board, Send Institute , Send Network, Association of Related Churches ( an independent church planting org) and Wheaton’s HUMANITARIAN DISASTER INSTITUTE with extensive materials and resources for the long haul.
They have a PLAN for long term PANDEMIC MANAGEMENT for the church via these organizations.
A nifty 28 page Coronavirus preparedness and response kit.
A COVID -19  Step-by-Step, Research-Informed and Faith-Based Planning Manual is already in place.
THE PARTNERSHIPS AND COLLABORATION ARE OUTLINED
“For more resources visit wheaton.edu/hdi-covid19Page 25Do not merely listen to the word, and so deceive yourselves. Do what it says. (James 1:22)In this verse, James reiterates one of his central points: that faith without action is incomplete. In a similar way when preparing for a potential crisis, we need to listen well when creating a plan. We need to pray without ceasing. We need to do the work of putting our preparedness plan into action. Implementing our plan is a practical way to ensure that our faith, love, and actions line up.Action: Stay InformedStaying informed by following updates disseminated by local, state, and federal public health agencies is key to putting preparedness into action. Seek out and listen to trusted sources that have been monitoring COVID-19 and issuing updated information, resources, and recommendations. Though not meant to serve as an exhaustive list, here are a few agencies that you might consider looking to for information (in alphabetical order):
•Center for Faith and Opportunity Initiatives at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
•Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
•Healthcare Ready
•Johns Hopkins University CSSSE Interactive Web-Based COVID-19 Dashboard
•U.S. Department of Health and Human Services
•World Health Organization (WHO)
As noted earlier, churches are also encouraged to reach out to local public health agencies and establish relationships. Research shows that partnerships between faith-based organizations and public health agencies can help save lives.”

“Global Summit Illustrates Increased Respect for Faith-Based Health Care”

November 3, 2005 2005 Religion News Service

“NEW YORK _ Hours before the December 2004 tsunami hit Southeast Asia, pastor Rick Warren got a 4:30 a.m. e-mail from a church in Sri Lanka. They had just had an earthquake, the pastor wrote, and it was so big that there was bound to be a tsunami.”

“Warren mobilized his network of churches. “We had a team headed for the coast before the tidal wave hit,” he said.”

“Speaking at the opening of Time magazine’s three-day Global Health Conference on Tuesday (Nov. 1), the author of the best-selling “Purpose Driven Life” used the tsunami relief example to explain how churches could be mobilized to deliver worldwide health care.”

“I can take you to a million villages around the world that don’t have a clinic, don’t have a post office, don’t have a hospital,” Warren said. “But they got a church.”

“The fact that Warren was a summit speaker along with luminaries like Bill Clinton and Dr. Jeffrey Sachs, the famed Columbia economist, illustrates how faith communities are increasingly seen as major players in the global health arena.”

“At the summit, sponsored in part by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders touted their health efforts, bickered over challenges, and discussed how they can succeed where governments fail.”

DETAILS OF 2005 TIME “WOODSTOCK OF HEALTH”

4. President Clinton championed generic AIDS drugs as a cost-effective solution.

5. The Methodist Church announced a plan to fight Malaria by providing radio transmitters to broadcast health information.

6. Baylor College of Medicine and Bristol Myers Squibb announced the first wave of the Pediatric AIDS Corps, which will head to Africa to treat children and train medical workers.

MONEY COMETH FOR PANDEMIC PARTNERS

“WHO FUNDING NOW LIKELY TO BE REDIRECTED TO FAITH BASED PARTNERS

“The United States is looking for alternate partners to carry out health programs previously supported through the World Health Organization (W.H.O.) in the wake of U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to freeze funding to the United Nations agency, American officials indicated this week.”

“Trump administration officials are conducting a 60-to-90 day review of the Beijing-influenced W.H.O.’s response to the novel coronavirus illness (COVID-19) ravaging the world.”

LEADERSHIP NETWORKS HISTORY WITH GLOBAL MINDED PARTNERSHIP EVANGELICAL LEADERS.

SOME HISTORY

LEADERSHIP NETWORKS LONG TIME ROLE IN LEADING THE CHURCH LEFT

No other single organization has done more damage to the church in the last 35 years than Bob Buford’s Leadership Network. Recruiting young, ambitious, innovative pastors stealthily behind the scenes by “invitation only” coaching and promotion went on with little notice for over 30 years until the aging Buford published “Drucker and Me” . It it he bragged about his own vision of transforming the church by injecting corporate coaching and management into young pastors like steroids into aspiring athletes .

Without Buford and his networking of money flooding into the church – there would have been no “church growth movement”, no emergent heresy (at least not by that name) and you would have no idea who many Christian “celebrity pastors” are. Guys like  Ed Stetzer, Tim Keller, Rick Warren, Bill Hybels and many other names would likely be doing something else like selling insurance or pastors of small congregations with only local followings.

Some might even be greeters at Walmart given their lack of  GOSPEL GRASP, real marketable skills or capacity to frame original thoughts.

But Leadership Network is both at the FOREFRONT of the movement to position the church in the “global pandemic industry “post covid 19 world AND  is a primary force in having staged the church to accept this role as THE Gospel ministry vision.

CENTRALIZED PLANNING FOR THE CHURCH

NOTE: The Drucker archives at Claremont College reveal that Bob Buford not only admired his management guru Peter Drucker for his thinking on Management. Buford also expressed his great admiration  for the Centralized Planning of Lenin. SO- the coordinator of these major trends and trajectory toward Global Health and the Pandemic Industry for the church is part of Buford/ Leadership Networks own “Centralized Planning”.

BUFORD THE PROUD GLOBALIST

Buford was a proud globalist himself meeting annually at the Aspen Institutes June Aspen Ideas Festival which is a massive new age think tank for global moves and shakers. Buford even took evangelical leaders like Rick Warren to the new age Ideas Festival.

In “The World We Want ” guide to global philanthropy Buford boasted he could”deliver legions of wealth Christians primed to become BIG TIME PHILANTHROPIST ”  to the Globalist world vision.

Buford and his disciples have worked hard at making this boast a reality. Meanwhile the church under their sway has become a recipient of global philanthropy including now the Global Pandemic Industry.

COVID-19 Church Survey Second Round Report

HOW CHURCH LEADERS ARE RESPONDING TO THE CHALLENGES OF COVID-19

Andrew MacDonald, Daniel Yang and Ed Stetzer

 

“Churches are not exempt from this sense of uncertainty as they try to carve out new routines for weekly services and ministries in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.”

“In partnership with the Billy Graham Center’s Send Institute, Leadership Network, Discipleship.org, and ARC, Exponential conducted a survey of church leaders and pastors’ responses to the COVID-19 epidemic and quarantine. The purpose of this polling is to help church leaders get a feel for where things are regarding the state of the Church and the significant challenges as they adapt to their new reality of remote ministry.”

“According to the 1,500+ church leaders who were surveyed, pastors and church leaders are experiencing the same uncertainty that we are seeing in other industries during this crisis. Churches are not exempt from this sense of uncertainty as they try to carve out new routines for weekly services and ministries. This most recent edition of the survey builds upon many of the same questions as our previous report while also exploring in greater detail the impact of the crisis upon the financial state of the church and the mental health of the pastor. We are well over a month into the crisis and many have been on shelter-at-home orders for several weeks.”

“In the complete findings of this report you will find:

  • Trends in innovation
  • Church leaders’ outlook on uncertain finances
  • Current top priorities for church leaders
  • The emergence of collaborative platforms
  • Trends in church leaders’ mental state in relation to significant workload increases”

CONCLUSION

The church that is thinking it can partner with Global Goals and Global Health fails to recognize the PURE GLOBAL EVIL DRIVING THIS MOVEMENT.

They miss the Gospels calling to come out and be separate ( 2 Corinthians 6:17 ) and warnings that to be the “Friend of the World is to be the Enemy of God. ” (James 4:4)

While Ed Stetzer and his SEND INSTITUTE disciple at Wheaton are warning Christians NOT to spread Conspiracy Theories about Covid -19.

https://www.christianitytoday.com/edstetzer/2020/april/conspiracy-theories-in-time-of-coronavirus-how-to-address-p.html

….Stetzer himself AND HIS PARTNERS  are conspiring to align  the church with Global Pandemic Industry along with his fellow Baptist and long time Global / Gates partner Rick Warren.

IN MANY WAYS PANDEMICS ARE THE NEW GLOBAL WARMING AND THE EARTH WILL HAVE NO REST FROM THE POLITICS AND LUST FOR GLOBAL POWER WHICH DRIVE THE PANDEMIC INDUSTRY.

THANKS TO GLOBAL MINDED LEADERS -THE CHURCH IS BEING CALLED TO PARTNER WITH THESE SCHEMERS AS THEY PLAN AHEAD FOR THE NEXT EVENT.

 

 

TIM KELLER & ASSOCIATES DEEPEN TIES TO PAUL SINGER BACKED & CAMPAIGN FOR “CHURCH RELIEF ” FUND.

BIBLICAL CONSERVATIVES IN THE PCA WATCH AS TIME KELLER EXPOSES MORE TIES TO FAR LEFT.

Rev Thomas Littleton                                                                                                  4/20/2020

The & Campaign is a very progressive political group working to move the remaining conservative churches like the Southern Baptist and the PCA leftward . Leadership comes from two political operatives, one a Democratic Party Strategist and the other the Obama Foundation “Ambassador the America’s Believers. & Campaign is push for a progressive reform agenda wrapped in Gospel garb as it touts “Biblical Values & Social Justice”.

The platform for & Campaign calls for softening the churches position from pro life to “discouraging abortion ” and is helping Paul Singer’s organization American Unity Fund push the Mormon / Singer constructed “Fairness for All” LGBTQ compromise over a “redefined ” Religious Liberty. Their movement is also calling for racial justice driven  housing and prison reforms and pro Islamic proliferation advocacy for immigration reform. Most other progressive political strategies are included as well in the bleeding heart context and rhetoric of justice and equity…aka Social Justice GOSPEL.

The focus of & Campaign is decidedly URBAN and additional  leadership is provided by Urban pastors from Tim Keller’s  TGC- The Gospel Coalition. Many of these urban pastors lead congregations planted by one of TGC’s church planting organizations and even the Southern Baptist (SBC)  North American Missions Board (NAMB). The SBC SEND Network (church planting arm for NAMB)  President actually launched & Campaign in 2017 in his “Blueprint Church ” in Atlanta .His brother is a co-founder of & Campaign.

https://andcampaign.org/leadership

THE PAUL SINGER TIES  WITH & CAMPAIGN

In late 2019 the Fairness For All movement surfaced and the forces behind it began to surface. The movement is called “Alliance for Lasting Liberty ” and & Campaign is the evangelical outreach partner for the effort with the LDS of Salt Lake City…the Mormons. The overarching influence, political clout, and funding comes from Paul Singer’s American Unity Fund. Singer’s influence and funding in 2012 ended opposition to gay marriage in the GOP with backing from Mitt Romney and the Mormon political machinery. Fairness for All was originally called the “Utah Compromise ” as it was piloted through the Utah state legislature by Mormon interest and Singer backing. NOW it is a national movement and has legislation in play in DC.

Singer ALSO FUNDS  the Equality Act which is the threat to Religious Liberty the Fairness for All legislation is said to address.

Tim Keller’s TGC urban pastors are key leaders in the & Campaign’s evangelical outreach for support.

CASTING THE JUSTICE VISION BY &CAMPAIGN

“The need is most acute in low-income, urban areas which are hit worse by the crisis for two reasons:

Low-income urban areas are being hurt worse by how the disease spreads.”

These communities were affected more by the loss of hourly and physical jobs which cannot  be done remotely. These churches are the most at-risk.”

“We want all churches to flourish! The focus on the direct aid is churches that serve low-income communities in urban areas that have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 crisis.”

NOTE: & CAMPAIGN ADMITS THERE ARE PROBLEMS OF INTERPRETATION FOR CHURCHES TAKING CARES ACT FUNDS

 

https://www.churchrelief.org/cares-act

“The potential benefits for churches in the CARES Act can be significant. However–due to a lack of certainty in how federal agencies and the courts will interpret the law, expected delays in churches and their employees receiving the funds made available by the law, and potential difficulties smaller churches might have in navigating the application process for these programs–we anticipate that short-term, immediate relief will still be needed.”

 

“Based on our reading of the legislation, and an overview of available resources (some of which are linked to at the bottom of this document), churches can benefit from the following provisions in the law.”

(We will continue to update this document as more information about implementation of the CARES Act becomes available.)

HOLY LAND PILGRIMAGES AND “EDUCATION”

“Who is behind Passages? The Museum of the Bible (Steve Green of Hobby Lobby) and The Philos Project/Paul Singer have partnered to create Passages. Paul Singer is a Jewish billionaire hedge fund manager and founder of Elliott Management. He funds many nonprofit organizations.”

“Why do Covenant Journey and Passages sound similar? Cary Summers, the then-president of the Museum of the Bible, and Steve Green, the president of Hobby Lobby and chairman of the Museum of the Bible, wanted a partnership with a Jewish philanthropist to develop support for the Museum of the Bible. They met with Paul Singer in New York to discuss the Museum of the Bible, but he was not interested. However, when Cary Summers and Steve Green proposed a joint funding partnership of Covenant Journey, Singer became interested. Except for the Museum of the Bible and Steve Green, Paul Singer did not want other major funders involved. His representatives also wanted governing board control of Covenant Journey and control of the program’s content. When Covenant Journey refused to accept funding from Paul Singer in exchange for control of the organization, Steve Green and Cary Summers then created Passages in 2016 as a joint funding partnership with Paul Singer and used the language and concepts already developed and written by and for Covenant Journey.”

PAUL SINGER EXPOSED AS VULTURE CAPITALIST  BEHIND SOCIAL JUSTICE MOVEMENT IN THE BAPTIST CHURCH

“Paul Singer, a Vulture Capitalist and political activist, known for his massive wealth which he uses to combat liberty movements with numerous social justice campaigns, has gotten the attention this week of dedicated Christian activists who are fighting corruption in the Baptist Church.”

CONCLUSION

Tim Keller and associates are planting churches. Redeemer City To City is Keller’s main focus after leaving his pastorate in New York. It is focused on “Global Cities” and planting churches it deems worthy being of it’s own kind and sharing it’s DNA with the mother church of Keller. Lausanne and Global Goals ideology are part of that DNA. So are Social Justice and so are other left wing/ Cultural Marxist ideologies from the Frankfurt School.

If Keller and these associates were in the liberal PCUSA it would not matter very much . Or if Keller’s TGC were influencing liberal Methodist or Episcopal denominations – it would be no big deal. BUT they are NOT FOCUSED on influencing the converted. They are focused on transforming the Biblical conservatives and planting “this kind of churches” i.e. TGC /&Campaign style urban churches (using the term loosely) and transforming the mission and the politics of the church as a whole in the process.

BILLIONAIRES IN THE SHADOWS.

So the questions are  simple:

What other billionaires are lurking in the shadows of TIM KELLER’S WORLD?

And HOW COMFORTABLE  should Christians be with not only Keller and Lausanne’s Global Goals ties but with the BILLIONAIRE  Paul Singer funded organization involved  in a funding scheme for CHURCHES?

Singer – who partners with the Mormons to GUT THE SOUL of the Republican Party – influence the Bible Museum and Israel/Biblical history and pilgrimage – swing the Urban Pastors of & Campaign into the justice fold and now organize a steady stream of wealth redistribution and financial aide into the new paradigm churches Keller and his affiliates are planting … SOUND LIKE A TRUSTWORTHY OPERATION TO YOU?

“YOUR MONEY PERISH WITH YOU” IF YOU THINK THE TRUE CHURCH CAN BE BOUGHT.

LOOKS LIKE YOU MIGHT HAVE KELLER IN YOUR PACKET ALREADY.

ACTS 8:

18 And when Simon saw that through the laying on of the apostles’ hands the Holy Spirit was given, he offered them money, 19 saying, “Give me this power also, that anyone on whom I lay hands may receive the Holy Spirit.”

20 But Peter said to him, “Your money perish with you, because you thought that the gift of God could be purchased with money! 21 You have neither part nor portion in this matter, for your heart is not right in the sight of God. 22 Repent therefore of this your wickedness, and pray God if perhaps the thought of your heart may be forgiven you. 23 For I see that you are poisoned by bitterness and bound by iniquity.”

24 Then Simon answered and said, “Pray to the Lord for me, that none of the things which you have spoken may come upon me.”

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

TGC/ CT/ LAUSANNE TARGET 4-YEAR -OLD CHILDREN W/ FALSE CHRISTIANITY.

CONFIRMED: ED STETZER &TIM KELLER TGC/ CT WORK TO INDOCTRINATE CHILDREN IN “4/14 WINDOW” WITH  UNITED NATIONS GLOBAL SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT.
Rev Thomas Littleton                                                                                                4/13/2020
The Christianity which finds compatibility with Global Sustainable Development Goals must embrace both the Atheist and New Age Universalism- “Global Spirituality” of the United Nations preached by the UN “Prophet of Peace ” in the “New Genesis”. It must agree with Global Warming, overpopulation, be pro LGBTQ rights , and pro abortion. Such divergent faith must assume that W.H.O. and the Global Health Initiative,the CDC and funding organizations like the Gates and Rockefeller Foundations all possess and support Christian values.
This brand of Christian faith is good with Muslim expansion into the West and open borders immigration policy as well as a “world core curriculum” in education and to co-opting of historical sights and narratives by UNESCO…and MORE. Also Lenin’s idea of “Social Justice” is a “Biblical mandate” to these devotees. In short ,such Christianity is TOTALLY FALSE and has no  Biblical basis whatsoever. Such is the progressive Christianity of the modern day Lausanne Movement and its 4/14 Window focus on indoctrinating youth in a “Global Goals Justice ” to “Transform the World”. US leaders like Tim Keller and Ed Stezer lead the way in promoting 4/14 Window through The Gospel Coalition, Christianity Today, and a host of Lausanne affiliated organizations.
( NOTE: Wrapping SDG and global demonic deceptions in Bible verses does not make them Biblical . The devil himself was brazen enough to quote scripture to the Living word of God.)

PANDEMIC RESPONSE GOT PEOPLE THINKING

The Covid- 19 global lock down and responses provided a wake up call to many unsuspecting Americans as oddities like ” digital currency”, “global governance”, “guaranteed universal income”, pandemic exercises surfaced. The longtime collaborations of Gates Foundation, John Hopkins  and individuals like Dr Anthony Fauci began to make their way around social media with increasing frequency. SOMETHING  has been happening “in the wings”of the global stage before the much anticipated pandemic and it’s highly impacting response HIT the headlines and took over day to day life. The pandemic of 2020 became the new reality for a world on lock down.
Social Distancing and Shelter in Place orders may be new to some but not to the Global Goals advocates. Along with those “informed” individuals and organizations who had financial and political interest in these goals are a group of Evangelical Faith Leaders who have been reaching for the same vision and luring the church and indoctrinating Christian children in these ideologies for YEARS.

SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS BACKGROUND

The Global Sustainable Development Goals ( SDG) are a set of 17 objective set out by the  United Nations and global leaders most often referred to as the Sustainability Goals. If you are not politically active of have not worked internationally with a Non Government
Organization (NGO), then you may not have heard of them BUT they are none the less real and those who subscribe to them really believe they have found the way to advance every progressive political agenda presently in play on the international stage. The faithful followers of SDG plan to save the planet, humanity, and civil society with the fulfillment of these goals by year 2030 .
” In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 Global Goals (officially known as the Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs). These goals have the power to create a better world by 2030, by ending poverty, fighting inequality and addressing the urgency of climate change.”
What very few people know  and understand is that SDG leaders view faith communities and faith leaders as KEY ALLIES  in these objectives realization promoting the embrace of the Global Goals as the vision and mission of the church.Selling SDG to next generation Christians is paramount .
WHATEVER the “4/14 Window “might mean to some as an evangelistic strategy to reach young people between the ages of 4 to 14 – NOW it is absolutely clear what it has come to mean to Lausanne and it’s operative like Tim Keller and Ed Stetzer. 4/14 Window is indoctrinating children in the Global Sustainable Development Goals as you will see.

4/14 WINDOW IN IT’S OWN WORDS

HOW EVANGELICAL GLOBAL GOALS OPERATIVES PLANNED TO TARGET CHILDREN

“The 10/40 Window referenced a geographic frame ,the 4/14 Window describes a demographic frame-a life season comprising the 10 years between the ages of 4 and 14.”
“This chapter is an urgent appeal to consider the strategic importance and potential of the 1.2 billion children and youth in the 4/14 Window . It is a plea to open your heart and mind to the idea of reaching and raising up a new generation from within that vast group- a generation that can experience personal transformation and can be mobilized as AGENTS  of TRANSFORMATION throughout the world.”
(From the book “International Development (SDG) From A Kingdom Perspective” Luis Bush chapter )
The context here is the promotion of SDG -NOT Gospel transformation UNLESS  the reader is gullible enough to believe they are ONE IN THE SAME
Luis Bush the author who “coined the phrase  4/14 Window ” apparently DOES believe the Gospel and Global Sustainable Development Goals are exactly the same.

TRANSFORM WORLD EVENT AND CONNECTIONS

“Transform World was the name given to the first global event in Indonesia in 2005 when Luis was asked to serve as international facilitator for other related events processes. Transform World Connections exists to build a community of servant-catalysts engaged in God’s mission of transformation that results in the healing and blessing of the nation.”
“Luis Bush also champions the term 4/14 Window which is a child evangelism movement term. The 4/14 Window is a global Christian mission movement focused on delivering children between the ages of 4 and 14 years old from oppression, deception, depression and destruction.[3] The goal is to raise up the 4/14 generation to experience the abundant life Jesus promised (John 10:10); to be freed from spiritual, mental, physical, relational, economic, and social poverty; to harness their immense potential and to change the world”

“Transform World Connections exists to serve communities of servant-catalysts engaged in God’s mission of transformation by catalyzing and connecting them together in consultation with people and communication resources, to equip the body in motivating the whole Church to bless the nations through prayer and collaborative action to see all nations redeemed, restored, and transformed, as cultures increasingly reflect the value system of the Kingdom of God.”

PAYING HOMAGE TO KARL MARX in “PATTERNS OF LONG LASTING MOVEMENTS”

(From the Transform the World Newsletters)

https://www.transform-world.net/uncategorized/transform-world-e-newsletter-april-2020/

https://www.transform-world.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/04/Patterns-in-Long-Lasting-Movements.pdf

” Even a long-lasting secular movement bears out these patterns. Karl Marx had a vision for changing the “League of Justice,” a semi-Christian utopian socialist group in Europe (1830s). The group’s stated goal was “the establishment of the Kingdom of God on Earth, based on the ideals of love of one’s neighbor, equality and justice” and their motto was “All men are brothers.”6Marx and Engel joined this “Justice League” and changed the name to “The Communist League” with the new motto “Workers of the world unite!” They turned a dying organization into a lasting global movement, by issuing The Communist Manifesto (1848) and by copying the card-carrying accountability cell groups structure of Wesley’s movement”

“The small groups “are Communism’s cutting edge…a Communist may belong to many cells…Wherever you have three or more Communists, there you have a Communist cell. They are expected to work together in an organized way in the interests of Communism,…a body of activists with well-defined aims, a single mind and purpose.”7 Even though the Communist movement is a false hope, destroying the lives of many, it has tapped into people’s desire to be part of a committed community and a movement of hope to make their world a better place.”

4/14 Global Leader Summit

Important Announcement

Our 2020 Summit in NYC has been canceled due to the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).

COVID -19 CANCELLED THE 4/14 WINDOW  SUMMIT

BUT THE CHURCH NEEDS TO CLOSE 4/14 WINDOW

FACT CHECK- Actually as the Corona Virus Pandemic appears to some to be the greatest threat to human life on earth- the facts are the globalist exploitation of the Pandemic may be far worse that Covid -19 itself. CERTAINLY the greater danger by far are globalist “Christian ” leaders willing to contaminate the church and our children in our churches-and the children of the world with the virus of anti- christ Global Sustainable Development Goals. These men like Ed Stetzer and Tim Keller need to be  isolated- quarantined and KEPT AWAY FROM OUR CHILDREN with their brand of 4/14 Window false gospel.
ZERO ROOM FOR DENIAL
Micah Challenge was founded as part of Lausanne Movement and it developed a “Prayer Guide for Sustainability Goals” which is still part of the focus under the renamed organization TearFund .

BUT THIS DISTURBING INVOLVEMENT RUNS MUCH DEEPER THAN THE MICAH CHALLENGE/ TEAR FUND PRAYER GUIDE

LAUSANNE IS ALSO TARGETING CHILDREN IN “THE 4/14 WINDOW ” WHILE THEY ARE MOST VULNERABLE AND EASILY INFLUENCED.

KELLER AND STETZER’S LAUSANNE MOVEMENT ROLES

Ed Stetzer and Tim Keller are BOTH leaders among the current Lausanne Movement .

Stetzer’s Lausanne Movement role:

https://www.moodyradio.org/programs/ed-stetzer-live/2018/09/9.15.18-reaching-skeptics/

” Ed Stetzer wears a lot of hats—author, speaker, researcher, pastor, church planter—as he helps Christians learn to share Christ. Ed has earned two master’s degrees and two doctorates, and has written or co-written a dozen books and hundreds of articles. Now he ministers as interim pastor of The Moody Church, teaches at Wheaton College, and serves as executive director of the Billy Graham Center and a regional director of Lausanne North America. Ed and his wife, Donna, have been married more than 25 years and have three daughters.”

NOTE : THE ROLE OF STETZER AT WHEATON  & LAUSANNE  INTERVIEWS OF KELLER. THEY ALSO CO-LAUNCHED MISSION SHIFT TOWARD THE GLOBAL JUSTICE MOVEMENT.

“Reaching Skeptics”

“Proof.  Facts.  Reason. Our society is constantly searching for evidence for what we believe.  So how do you convince skeptics to put their faith in something they can’t see?  Ed Stetzer tackles this question Saturday in a discussion with New York Times bestselling author and Pastor Tim Keller. ”

MORE ON THE OPEN EMBRACE OF GLOBAL GOALS DEVELOPMENT

” The ongoing task of international development has dominated the headlines and the airwaves as of late, especially with the establishment of the Millenium Development Goals, the growing numbers of celebrities involved in charity work, and an expanding global awareness of our humanity’s interdependence. Nowhere has the challenge of international development been more acutely felt than among Christian congregations and faith-based NGOs. While followers of Christ certainly face a daunting challenge in the fight against global issues of poverty and oppression, there has never before been a time when Christians have been as equipped to help and informed about the situation of our world as they are now. With this in mind, Christians everywhere can move forward in their task of development with hope in their hearts. The articles compiled here by James Butare-Kiyovu highlight the promise God holds out for those who would work towards shalom on this earth, and offer the same challenge that is quoted from the late Dr. Ralph D. Winter in the introduction to this anthology: ‘No generation has less excuse than ours if we do not do as He asks.”

LAUSANNE AND RALPH D.WINTER WHOSE WILLIAM CARY INTL. UNIVERSITY PUBLISHED THE BOOK

Ralph D. Winter mentioned above was an early Lausanne Movement leader.
“We give God thanks for the life of Dr. Winter and the significant impact he had on evangelization, world mission and the Lausanne Movement”
Winter founded William Cary International University which compiled the book.
” This small book (166 pages) contains a few true gems. “

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

https://stuarthoughton.wordpress.com/2017/11/14/international-development-from-a-kingdom-perspective/

The book makes the case  to “argue for development as the pursuit of shalom, such as Bryant Myers (Walking With the Poor).  Snodderly describes shalom as “wholeness and wellness in the context of right relationships with God, people and nature.” (p.77).”

“In second equal place I would put Ralph Winter’s chapter on Kingdom mission (a reprint from the Perspectives book) and Befus & Bauman’s chapter on economic justice.”

AGAIN-there is also a full chapter on the Micha Challenge Sustainable Goals Prayer Guide in this SDG from a “kingdom perspective ” and the 4/14 Window strategy to reach children and teens with SDG/ Sustainable Development Goals  .

USING CHINA AS A TEST RUN FOR 4/14 WINDOW

This 2010 publication includes the use of :

GLOBAL GOALS ,LAUSANNE , AND THE 4/14 WINDOW

https://www.chinasource.org/resource-library/articles/the-4-14-window

“People Group thinking was a significant concept from the first Lausanne Congress in 1974. The “10/40 Window,” from Lausanne II in Manila, may have been the most important contribution of that gathering. Another window—what I call the “4/14 Window,” is becoming a key focal point for the next quarter century”

BUT RECALL THE 4/14 WINDOW IS TARGETING CHILDREN AT THEIR MOST VULNERABLE INSIDE CHURCHES AND AS EVANGELISM AND DISCIPLESHIP FOCUS.

https://www.chinasource.org/about/history

China Source is  partner in 4/14 window using the children of China as a test bed for development of 4/14 Window approaches

SEE CHINA SOURCE HISTORY

” Formed in 1997 at the Billy Graham Center of Wheaton College, ChinaSource began as a collaborative effort of several North American evangelical entities. Recognizing the growing importance of China on the world scene, these organizations came together to create a clearinghouse of information and relationships serving the global Christian community.  ”

NOTE: ED STETZER NOW HEADS THE BILLY GRAHAM CENTER AT WHEATON

” In the 2010s we began building our online presence, providing balanced and timely information about China and the church in China through our content and online training programs. New initiatives focused on Christian education, mentoring leaders, and stewardship and generosity have brought multiple agencies together with Chinese Christians to address some of these concerns”

KELLER’S THE GOSPEL COALITION AND STETZER’S WORK WITH CHRISTIANITY TODAY ARE HELPING SPREAD THE WORD FOR CHINA SOURCE AND 4/14 WINDOW ALONG WITH CBS/ NYT, HUFFINGTON POST AND MORE

China Source launched in 2010 the same year the “Kingdom Perspective ” on SDG was published and Ed Stezer and Tim Keller were operating out of  Lausanne and casting their vision for “Mission Shift” with emergent heretical leaders.

(Mission Shift was Keller/ Stetzer and current SBC President J D Greear working with Emergent heretical teachers like Bryan McLaren to rethink and reshape missions in 2010 http://www.missionalmanifesto.net/  )

THE 4/14 WINDOW  CHINA SOURCE THE FOCUS ON CHILDREN

” A Receptive people group. At the same time, children are also the most receptive population on earth. In the US, nearly eighty-five percent of people who make a decision for Christ do so between the ages of four and fourteen. There is a growing body of research which suggests that roughly this same receptiveness is true in populations outside of the US, including China.”

WHAT IS THE 4/14 WINDOW ?
SOURCES PROVIDED HERE BY TGC / CHRISTIANITY TODAY

FAITH AND WORK :CONTINUING INDOCTRINATION IN THE NAME OF CHRISTIAN EDUCATION

FAITH AND WORK CURRICULUM IS THE SAME DECEPTIVE FOCUS FLOODING AMERICA’S SEMINARIES TODAY AND IT IS CONTINUING THE 4/14 WINDOW INDOCTRINATION
This flood of socialist economics into Biblical conservative American seminaries is the next phase of indoctrination for the first wave of 4/14 Window teens who are now in their early to mid 20s and attending our seminaries . This infiltration began in 2009 and was fueled by massive  GRANT programs .It had obtained virtual saturation by 2013 and was being reported by Christian press by 2017 as being PART OF the “Evangelical Deep State” which research and title this writer gave to the subversive evangelical activities.

GOING STEALTH BY INTIMIDATION

Some outlets of Christian media have since SCRUBBED  their websites of these facts and other stories related to the indoctrination of Christian Youth by the “Evangelical Deep State”.
Hidden by complicit press or not – still the Faith and Work focus of Social Justice driven economics are KEY to the next phase of 4/14 Window indoctrination.
FAITH AND WORK – SELLING SOCIALIST ECONOMICS AND  4/14 WINDOW BUY-IN
” In 2003, Christian social scientist George Barna published the results of a Southern Baptist Convention study that indicated 71 percent of Christians in America became Christians between the ages of four and fourteen. Thus was born the 4/14 Window—a commitment to presenting the Gospel to young people between the ages of four and fourteen, when the concrete of their hearts has not hardened.”

Encouraging you to hold firm to your faith in win-at-all-costs corporate environments, Tim Keller and Katherine Leary Alsdorf help you carry your beliefs from church to job, stay true to your values, make God-honoring choices, and more. ”

ED STETZER / CT AND FAITH AND WORK

https://www.christianitytoday.com/edstetzer/2016/august/jesus-on-job-how-faith-mixes-with-work.html

“It is time to take a few steps back and look at the preparation that goes into a job and the critical years before people enter the workplace. These years are fertile ground for helping Christians successfully see whatever work they do as part of God’s grand narrative to reach our world with the good news.”… “Here at the Billy Graham Center for Evangelism, we are engaged in this very thing through our Evangelism Initiative. We are working with Christian higher education institutions to help them train their students to be able to segue from any discipline into a gospel conversation.”

THESE NARRATIVE NEVER CEASE !

CONCLUSION

OBSERVING THE SATURATION FROM PERSONAL EXPERIENCE
In virtually every personal expression of concern and contention over the infiltration of these ideals and goals into the church with pastors in this writers region, the local pastors have defended leaders like Tim Keller and ED Stetzer and allowed their influence into their churches  to CONTINUE.
This writer spent years reaching out to Pastors like Harry Walls. a John MacArthur disciple and Harry Reeder a PCA pastor. Both are TGC members .Reeder is a TGC Leadership Council Member and pastor of one the PCA’s most conservative congregations . These men and others like them and their church staff, have defended, excused Keller and Stetzer and TGC , while they have persecuted this writer for “daring to implicate ” these notable leaders in being complicit with or as having any intentions outside the Gospel with their writings/ books/ conferences and sweeping inroads of influence.
Pastors and denominational leaders from across the globe have stood by these men and PROMOTED  their writings to their flock and CONTINUE  to do so today.

MILLSTONE ADORNMENTS AWAIT

In EVERY  conflict resulting from these warnings with a pastor – this writer has warned that these leaders like Keller and Stetzer ARE TARGETING our children inside our own churches.
WITH THE 4/14 FOCUS ON GLOBAL GOALS THAT TARGETING IS 100 % CONFIRMED
Every pastor who continues to allow these men access to their congregations through books and curriculum AFTER THEY have seen first hand, warned and shown proof that these men and Lausanne were targeting children and Christian families is obligated to deal with this reality or be held accountable to both God and congregations/parents .
These pastors are /were /and should be reminded that this kind of compromise endangering, offending or corrupting the faith of children comes with a MILLSTONE WARNING BY JESUS HIMSELF.
Yet in EVERY CASE  to date these pastors have ignored the proofs and warnings and  retained the corrupted influences in their congregations. MOST  have instead made every effort to discredit this writer and defend and deny the truth. NOW -that truth – that these men and Lausanne are seeking to indoctrinate our children in false / anti-christ Global Christianity is BEYOND PLAUSIBLE DENIABILITY  and is 100 % confirmed.
PASTOR YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED -ALLOWING WOLVES TO ACCESS CHILDREN IN OUR VERY CHURCHES -IN GOD’S HOUSE -IS A MILLSTONE OFFENCE.

MATTHEW 18 :

Jesus Warns of Offenses

“But whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes!

WILL THE GLOBALIST OF GLOBAL FALSE CHRISTIANITY SUCCEED?
NEVER -JUST ASK THE PSALMIST.
Psalm 2

The Messiah’s Triumph and Kingdom

2 Why do the nations rage,
And the people plot a vain thing?
The kings of the earth set themselves,
And the rulers take counsel together,
Against the Lord and against His Anointed, saying,
“Let us break Their bonds in pieces
And cast away Their cords from us.”

He who sits in the heavens shall laugh;
The Lord shall hold them in derision.
Then He shall speak to them in His wrath,
And distress them in His deep displeasure:
“Yet I have set My King
   On My holy hill of Zion.”

TIM KELLER COMES OUT OF HIS CLOSET : TGC FOUNDER WITH REVOICE AND &CAMPAIGN LEADERS.

ONCE CONSIDERED BY PRESBYTERIANS AS ORTHODOX REFORMED,KELLER NOW LIVES OPENLY AMONG THE RUINS OF QUEER THEORY AND OBAMA FOUNDATION POLITICS .

Thomas Littleton                                                                                                                    4/9/20

 

Amid your Corona Virus exile from public life Q Ideas and Tim Keller want to bring you a “Virtual Summit ” complete with virtual Dinner Conversations . For Keller it is a coming out of sorts as he does a FULL FRONTAL with his close associations with Revoice LGBTQ Thriving and the progressive Third Way Politics of The & Campaign. Tim -you would have served the church well to have exposed yourself fully in 2008 before becoming mainstreamed among conservative believers. BUT that would kind of defeat the goals of an EVANGELICAL  CHANGE AGENT .

In 2018 a researcher tied Tim Keller ,a PCA minister and the founder of The Gospel Coalition, to the new Revoice LGBTQ Thriving Conference via his disciple Scott Sauls who mentored the Revoice founder Nate Collins work in Nashville and endorsed the July event. Keller was appearing in June 2018 in London at the Living Out Confernce of TGC speaker and editor Sam Allberry as Sam and Living Out both promoted Revoice “for their US audience “.  As the Revoice story blew up -it THE defining issue of the next 18 months for the PCA as well as the shaking the ground  beneath the feet of the  Southern Baptist. Still Keller was able to maintain some  “plausible deniability of direct ties to Revoice .

More on the unfolding story of TGC ties and Keller and pals ties to Revoice here:

https://thirtypiecesofsilver.org/2019/06/24/far-deeper-erlc-tgc-ties-to-revoice-lgbt-flourishing/

The forces and ideologies behind Revoice pro LGBTQ Thriving movement had already  invaded conservative seminaries and have set a PCA split fully in motion. Still Tim Keller maintained a “comfortable distance ” from the epicenter of the controversy in most peoples minds.

The researcher who broke the Revoice story was yours truly. It was far from a day in the park to maintain the pressure that Keller was involved behind the scenes with many of the forces in and behind Revoice and the LGBTQ push into conservative evangelical churches. MANY people in the PCA and SBC LOVE  themselves some Tim Keller…and will gnash on the flesh of anyone who dares question or point to Keller compromise.

KELLER’S DEMOCRATIC PARTY TIES 

Also Keller’s skewed politics in the Obama era have had some light shed upon them .

https://thirtypiecesofsilver.org/2019/02/19/collapsing-conservative-america/

Still Keller again maintained some plausible deniability of his third way , pro Democratic Party endorsements. His young TGC disciples came forward in 2018 , like Revoice , to help in the leadership of the & Campaign with the Obama Foundation “Ambassador to America’s Believers”, Michael Wear who is also a TGC contributor, and Justin Giboney a Democrat Party strategist and Obama and Hillary Clinton delegate .

REVOICE REALITY AND POLITICAL POSTURING

 

TAKE NOTE- Revoice is splitting the Presbyterian Church of America which is Keller’s denomination and he is working openly now with it’s leadership.

OBAMA POLITICS FROM HELL :AN 8 YEAR LOCK DOWN

& CAMPAIGN is straight Obama Foundation and Democratic Party politics without a chaser .

Pro LGBTQ billionaire Paul Singer who was the central force in ending GOP opposition to gay marriage is helping partner with & Campaign to push for “Fairness for All compromise on LGBTQ and Religious Liberty as an alternative to The Equality Act which Singer is also funding and backing through activist groups like The Human Rights Campaign . Either way -the church loses and the activist win over Religious Liberties in America. & Campaign is doing similar activist business of Muslim and Refugee Rights, Borders, Prison Reform and other progressive agendas as it seeks to combine “Biblical Values & Social Justice” with voices from the far left and TGC’s young stable of pastors.

BUT REMEMBER THE DINNER WARNINGS OF SOLOMON AND BUY THE TRUTH AND SELL IT NOT.

Proverbs 23

Listen to Your Father

1When you sit down to eat with a ruler,
Consider carefully what is before you;
And put a knife to your throat
If you are a man given to appetite.
Do not desire his delicacies,
For they are deceptive food.

Do not overwork to be rich;
Because of your own understanding, cease!
[a]Will you set your eyes on that which is not?
For riches certainly make themselves wings;
They fly away like an eagle toward heaven.

Do not eat the bread of a[b] miser,
Nor desire his delicacies;
For as he thinks in his heart, so is he.
“Eat and drink!” he says to you,
But his heart is not with you.
The morsel you have eaten, you will vomit up,
And waste your pleasant words.

Do not speak in the hearing of a fool,
For he will despise the wisdom of your words.

10 Do not remove the ancient [c]landmark,
Nor enter the fields of the fatherless;
11 For their Redeemer is mighty;
He will plead their cause against you.

12 Apply your heart to instruction,
And your ears to words of knowledge.

13 Do not withhold correction from a child,
For if you beat him with a rod, he will not die.
14 You shall beat him with a rod,
And deliver his soul from [d]hell.

15 My son, if your heart is wise,
My heart will rejoice—indeed, I myself;
16 Yes, my [e]inmost being will rejoice
When your lips speak right things.

17 Do not let your heart envy sinners,
But be zealous for the fear of the Lord all the day;
18 For surely there is a [f]hereafter,
And your hope will not be cut off.

19 Hear, my son, and be wise;
And guide your heart in the way.
20 Do not mix with winebibbers,
Or with gluttonous eaters of meat;
21 For the drunkard and the glutton will come to poverty,
And drowsiness will clothe a man with rags.

22 Listen to your father who begot you,
And do not despise your mother when she is old.

23 Buy the truth, and do not sell it,
Also wisdom and instruction and understanding.

 

THE END OF CHURCH AS WE KNOW IT !

WHILE CHURCH DOORS ARE CLOSED OR LIMITED TO 10 PEOPLE, THE LOOMING THREAT OF GOVERNMENT FUNDING MAY PROVE DEADLY.
Rev Thomas Littleton                                                                                           4/5/2020
Leaders of the Southern Baptist and The Gospel Coalition, among others,  are encouraging / coaching / lobbying for churches to take the Covid-19 Stimulus. This never before and unthinkable move will spell the end of church as we know it in America as churches now become debtors /grant recipients of the Government through the Small Business Administration.
Before anyone screams “The gates of Hell will not prevail against the church”., let us fully affirm that the real church of Jesus Christ will never cease to exist.

Matthew 16:18 King James Version

18 “And I say also unto thee, That you art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

 

But ALL is about to change in the institutional church in America. The church has enjoyed freedom and  protections from Government interference , state occupation and dictates and any government involvement in the churches affairs. This Constitutional refuge is about to evaporate and everything turned on it’s head as the church and ministries become funded by the Federal Government Stimulus in the form of the Covid BAIL OUT through the Small Business Administration.
PLEASE – No ultra pious surrenders of “personal rights and freedoms ” or theological and eschatological  reasoning to avoid these deadly realities or to justify participation in the Stimulus . Only two things are likely driving these decisions- fear and inability to trust the Lord at His word …and pragmatism – the lipstick on the kiss of death.
WE CANNOT DEFEND STUPIDITY WITH PIETY OR THEOLOGY !

APOSTASY IS A BIBLICAL REALITY

The foundation of the Lord stands sure and Jesus will build His church -but individual churches and entire movements do go apostate as the Lord Himself warns repeatedly in in the Gospels and in Revelation 2 and 3.
Already ,many churches, ministries  and entire denominational missions departments have become entangled with Faith Based Partnerships and the grants which accompany those programs. NOW many more of America’s churches will justify taking the bail out in the midst of the economic crisis of the 2002 Covid-19 Pandemic .

WHAT IS THE PROBLEM?

As loan / grant / bail out recipients Churches will be under Small Business Administration  obligations for the 10 year life span of the loan or forever if the loan is converted to a grant and not repaid.Also churches who take the funding now will likely not hesitate to do so again in the case of another economic crisis. These bad decisions have long term consequences.
TO BE SPECIFIC
* CHURCHES CAN’T CRY FOUL.
Churches will no longer be able to simply cry “Separation of Church and State ” when demands are placed on them by the Government after taking public funding. The wall of protections in the Constitution provided in the “Free Exercise ” & ” Non Establishment ” clauses will forever be a “pierced veil” in the future.
*SIGNING THEIR RIGHTS AWAY
As the signatures go onto SBA forms – compliance with “non discrimination & inclusion” agreements become MANDATORY . This comes after marriage has been redefined and just  ahead of the LGBTQ Equality Act or Fairness for All legislation making sexual minority status equal to race. SOGI , the legal  language of “Sexual Identity and Gender Identity will provide all that is needed to force church into sweeping compliance with inclusive culture. SBA and all other federal agencies already have many similar policies in place but soon being LGBTQ will be a civil right added to the 1964 Civil Rights Act and all other federal non discrimination laws and agency guidelines. The church taking government funding and in debt or obligation to the Small Business Administration WILL COMPLY  in all future hiring practices and similar areas where these ever expanding laws apply.
*CHURCHES ENJOY TAX EXEMPT STATUS .
Churches are grandfathered into non profit status . They do not even have to apply for it or for approval status. Status is automatic. The tax exempt status of churches and  non profits mean,other than payroll withholding from employees, Churches do NOT pay taxes into the system. They do not have to file tax returns.
Other “para-church” ministries do have to file 990 non profit forms but do NOT pay taxes on income like “for profit” business do. Churches again do not even have to file 990 forms with the IRS . Opposition  to churches non profit status EXIST and  is already growing in progressive circles as seen in the 2020 Democratic Party during the primary season as several candidates object to and call for an end of church tax and legal exemptions and protections if those churches “discriminate” or are politically active on the conservative side. NOW after churches are receiving government bail outs and grants – the exemptions and protections will be FAR more VULNERABLE . If you are not  paying in, why should you be taking money out and yet be protected with a “license to discriminate”? This will become the mantra of the progressive movement.
*CHURCHES DO NOT PAY PROPERTY TAXES .
In a conversation with Southern Baptist thought leader Albert Mohler of SBTS in 2014 regarding the dangers posed to churches by the forthcoming (at the time) SCOTUS case  making gay marriage the law of the land, Mohler confirmed that “losing property tax exemptions would devastate  many large churches and Christian Institutions “.
According to Mohler this includes SBTS Mohler’s own institution SBTS which  Mohler points out would be “having to pay property tax on millions of dollars worth of real estate…the same is true for large churches. “.  So even the ever circular talking reformed guru Albert Mohler gets that concern.
*Church Leaders will not bite the hand that feeds them. Going forward , any pastor who takes Covid -19 Stimulus funding will be far less likely to speak up to this or any future administration.
THE SIMPLE OPTION 

NOTE-

Churches can  allow employees to file for unemployment which they have paid into individually  as part of the Covid -19 relief expansion of unemployment benefits . THERE is NO SOUND  reason to involve the church itself in government funding to aid employees.
As we shall see , the Southern Baptist ERLC/ SBC  Executive Committee, and others have lobbied FOR church inclusion in the Stimulus. They may have  been inspired by self interest to have the Stimulus money flow through the churches to employees rather than direct payment in unemployment benefits to the staff individually.
One thing these  lobbing efforts by ERLC and Guide Stone’s larger Church Alliance cannot say is “they did not have time to consider or had not thought these danger through !”.

THE INSTITUTIONAL CHURCH IS DEAD

WHEN CHURCH DOORS OPEN/SERVICES RESUME EVERYTHING WILL HAVE CHANGED !
IF your church, or perhaps even worse, your pastor decides for your church, to take the Stimulus Bail Out – your church will never be the same autonomous entity.
It will be a debtor to the SBA, a federal government agency and no different than any other “business” who owes money and compliance to and in the eyes of the government.

WHY NOT HAVE IN HOUSE FINANCIAL HELP?

With Guide Stones Financial vast wealth in the tens of Billions- why is there no in house rescue /loan plan for Southern Baptist churches? Why have other denominations not proposed that ?

DOING IT TO THEMSELVES-LOBBYING FOR DESTRUCTION

As the Covid-19 two trillion dollar Stimulus details came out, some other facts and concerns came with it. According to Southern Baptist Convention  Executive Committee interview this week Guide Stone Financial the retirement and financial giant of the SBC and the Ethics and Religious Liberties Commission – both ERLC and Guide Stone’s broader lobby group “Church Alliance” had actually aggressively lobbied for Churches to be included in accessing Government grants / loans as part of the Stimulus .

Disaster Loan Assistance loans from Small Business Administration available to churches

DALLAS

“The U.S. Small Business Administration’s COVID-19 Economic Injury Disaster Loans will be available to churches and ministries. The loans provide another category of assistance that initially had seemed to be unavailable to churches.”

“Churches and pastors have options available to them depending on their own situations and convictions,” GuideStone® President O.S. Hawkins said. “It is good that the options are available for pastors and churches who may need to access the federal relief that is being made available due to economic circumstances that are beyond their control.”

“While we would never tell a pastor what he must do, it is good that the options are available for pastors and churches who may wish to avail themselves of the options available through this legislation.”

The application can be accessed by visiting covid19relief.sba.gov/#/.

“Initially, the regulations spoke of ‘private nonprofits,’ which seemed to exclude churches and ministries,” said Harold Loftin, chief legal officer for GuideStone. “However, the Small Business Administration is taking a broader view as it relates to the corona virus Economic Injury Disaster Loans, as it specifically allows for faith-based organizations to apply for the loans.”

“Applicants for a loan in response to COVID-19 from an SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan can request an advance of up to $10,000 that is to be issued within three days of application. Funds can be used for sick leave due to COVID-19, maintaining payroll to retain employees during economic interruption, rent, mortgage payments and other limited obligations. These funds do not have to be repaid, even if the loan requested is denied, effectively making the initial $10,000 a grant.”

“If the same applicant obtains a Paycheck Protection Program loan through the Small Business Administration, the $10,000 forgiven under the Economic Injury Disaster Loan reduces what can be forgiven under the Paycheck Protection Program loan.”

“Support for including faith-based organizations, including churches, in the economic relief is bipartisan in Washington. On Tuesday (March 31), four members of the U.S. House of Representatives — Cedric Richmond, a Louisiana Democrat; James Clyburn, a South Carolina Democrat; and Mike Johnson and Steve Scalise, both Louisiana Republicans — wrote Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Labor Secretary Eugene Scalia and Small Business Administration Administrator Jovita Carranza. In the letter, the congressmen wrote, “We can assure you that Congress did not intend to require non-profits to possess an exemption determination letter to be eligible for assistance through any other section of the CARES Act either.”

(See the attached copy of the letter.)

“The recognition of the importance of faith-based organizations, especially churches, to their communities and to their staff is welcome from these members of Congress,” Hawkins said. “We applaud the members of Congress and the members of the Trump administration who are working diligently to ensure economic relief for all Americans, especially pastors and churches who serve the physical and spiritual needs of the communities they serve.”

COVID-19 Pandemic Phase III Stimulus Package

https://www.guidestone.org/Promotions/COVID-19-Resources

“The COVID-19 Pandemic Phase III Stimulus Package provides potential relief for churches and pastors. This outcome is thanks to efforts by the Church Alliance – a national coalition of large and historic church benefit boards (including GuideStone) – and Southern Baptist partners who worked to ensure churches and pastors have the same options as small businesses and self-employed individuals attempting to financially weather the economic turmoil wrought by COVID-19. GuideStone’s Legal team has prepared a lengthy Q&A for churches and pastors looking for answers to how this stimulus package may impact them.”

(Guide Stone may also be considering the impact on the Health Care Coverage they offer church employees.)

CHURCH ALLIANCE GUIDE STONES LARGER UMBRELLA LOBBY

EVEN CHURCH ALLIANCE LEGAL TEAM HAVE DOUBTS/QUESTIONS.

IT IS STILL UNCLEAR: THE CHURCH ALLIANCE LEGAL TEAM LETTER TO SBA

News

Recent Comment Letter

“On April 1, 2020, the Church Alliance sent a letter to Jovita Carranza, Administrator of the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA).  The letter asked the SBA to clearly acknowledge that religious organizations are eligible to apply for the Paycheck…”

“On behalf of the Church Alliance, thank you for your leadership in helping businesses and nonprofits with relief as they navigate the challenges presented by COVID-19. We are writing to ask that the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) explicitly acknowledge that all nonprofit organizations, including churches, synagogues, and other religiously-affiliated organizations (“religious organizations”), are eligible to apply for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans established under Section 1102 of H.R. 748, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, and to receive loan forgiveness under Section 1105 of the CARES Act. As the SBA issues guidance around this newly created program, the Church Alliance would appreciate consideration of the issues discussed below.”
“The Church Alliance would also appreciate clarification as to whether acceptance of a PPP loan would lead to the recipient being considered the recipient of federal funds. Currently, many religious organizations do not receive any federal funding. The Church Alliance would like it clarified that if such organizations were to receive PPP loans, such amounts would not, in and of themselves, result in the classification of the borrower as the recipient of federal funds.”

TGC/JOE CATER FIRST TO THE PUNCH TO SELL STIMULUS TO CHURCHES.

THE GOSPEL COALITION WAS FIRST TO SCHOOL CHURCHES ON HOW TO CASH IN.
TGC was helping gin up concern about fund raising during the Covid-19 Crisis
TGC then sent out Joe Carter ,resident expert in outside funding for churches and Seminaries via his work at Acton Institute , ERLC , Oikonomia Network and TGC.
Joe Carter’s article was published and fully informed the morning  following the Stimulus passage

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

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

“The loan requires a “good faith” certification that the funds will be used to support ongoing operations, retain workers, and/or maintain payroll or make mortgage, lease, and utility payments. The loan is forgivable (i.e., doesn’t require repayment) if the church employed the same number of people (or more) during the loan period as they did in 2019. Funds that are not forgiven have a loan maturity of 2 years, and loan payments under this program are not due for six months No fees are included for the loan, and no collateral or personal guarantees will be required.”

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

THE MONEY TRAIN IS LEAVING THE STATION

By the next day the Executive Committee of the SBC and Guide Stone had jumped in. By Thursday Russell Moore of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission was reassuring pastors that taking the funds did not violate separation of church and state- at least according to Democrat Russell Moore .

“Over the past week, several pastors have asked us if a church or ministry taking advantage of newly approved government-backed Small Business Administration (SBA) loans would be wrong. Would such a church be now a government-funded enterprise? Russell Moore doesn’t think so, and here’s why:”

https://erlc.com/resource-library/articles/do-sba-backed-loans-violate-the-separation-of-church-and-state

APRIL 3RD ERLC IS GIVING FULL INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW CHURCHES CAN GET THE STUMULUS

“What are the religious liberty concerns with this financial aid?”

“Russell Moore, ERLC president, recently addressed this question in his article, Do SBA-backed loans violate the separation of church and state? Moore wrote in response to several pastors who asked us the same question, “is a church or ministry taking advantage of newly approved government-backed Small Business Administration (SBA) loans wrong to do so? Would such a church be now a government-funded enterprise?” Moore does not think so and we’d encourage you to read his full article for why.”

When can my church apply for this loan?

“Churches can begin applying for the program on Friday, April 3. The deadline for submitting your application is June 30, 2020. However, because there is a funding cap, you should apply as soon as possible.”

How do I apply to the program?

“The application for the Paycheck Protection Program can be filled out and downloaded at this link. Once completed, you can submit the form to your Small Business Administration (SBA) participating lender. You will also need to provide your lender with payroll documentation.”

How do I find an SBA participating lender?

“The easiest way is to simply ask the bank which currently manages your accounts if they are participating in the program. Although the SBA is working on a web page where you can view approved lenders near you, that resource is currently not available.”

How many loans can I take out under this program?

“The Paycheck Protection Program can only be used to acquire one loan for your church. If you use this program, though, it may prevent your church from being eligible for the CARE Act’s delayed payroll tax provisions. (That provision allows an employer to defer paying their portion of an employee’s Social Security taxes through the end of 2020. Half of the deferred amount will be due at the end of 2021 and the other half will be due at the end of 2022.)”

What can my church use the loan for?

“The proceeds of the loan can be used to pay for payroll costs (including benefits) and for interest on mortgage obligations (incurred before Feb. 15, 2020); rent (under lease agreements in force before Feb. 15, 2020); and utilities (for which service began before Feb. 15, 2020).”

What counts as payroll costs?

“For churches, payroll costs include salary, wages, and commissions (capped at $100,000 on an annualized basis for each employee); employee benefits (including costs for vacation, parental, family, medical, or sick leave); allowance for separation or dismissal; payments required for the provisions of group health care benefits including insurance premiums; and payment of any retirement benefit; and state and local taxes assessed on compensation.”

( ERLC ASKED THE SURREAL QUESTION )

How much money can my church borrow under this program?

“The loan amount can total up to two months of your average monthly payroll costs from the last year plus an additional 25% of that amount.”

“This can be calculated by taking the average monthly payroll and multiplying by 2.5. For purposes of calculating “Average Monthly Payroll” on the application, you will use the average monthly payroll for 2019, excluding costs over $100,000 on an annualized basis for each employee. If your church or organization began in 2020, the average monthly payroll may be calculated using the time period from Jan. 1, 2020 to Feb. 29, 2020, excluding costs over $100,000 on an annualized basis for each employee.”

“As an example, let’s consider a church that has three employees who had total annual payroll costs in 2019 of $120,000, $75,000, and $50,000. The church’s actual average monthly payroll for 2019 would be $20,416 ($245,000 a year/12 months). But because of the $100,000 cap per employee, the allowable average monthly payroll would be $18,750. We then take that number and multiply it by 2.5. The church would thus qualify for a total loan amount of $46,875.”

Does my church have to pay back the loan?

“Under certain conditions, the loan is forgivable”

BAPTIST PLAYING POLITICS 
Democrat Moore played politics with Covid care .
” Russell Moore, president of the ERLC, weighed into this ethical dilemma with a Christian response with an opinion piece in The New York Times last week. Moore notes how “this pandemic will change us, change our economy, our culture,” and that we should remember that “one day we will tell our grandchildren how we lived, how we loved, during the Great Pandemic.”
ARE THE CONCERNS ADDRESSED ?
April 2nd Baptist Pressed published this article “
YET the “guarantees are vague and the reality is ERLC and Guide Stone Baptist entities gladly lobbied for including Churches and promoted / coached participation while still unable to answer these concerns.

WHAT IS AN INTERIM FINAL RULE ?

ERLC- You must be joking as churches are already filing for the funding.

With the sad and shaky history of the ERLC under Russell Moore you cannot trust these ERLC guys ideals of “religious freedom protections “. Given their long history of ongoing platforming  gay activist change agents,  attacking the “nuclear family ” and the ERLC staffers and Fellows open push of Revoice LGBTQ Flourishing in the Church- clearly the ERLC would not be pushing for the lines of protection to be drawn in the same places as most Southern Baptist or broader Biblical conservatives.
“The interim final rule provided guidance stipulating: “All loans … will be made consistent with constitutional, statutory, and regulatory protections for religious liberty …”It reiterates an SBA regulation that states: “Nothing in [SBA nondiscrimination regulations] shall apply to a religious corporation, association, educational institution or society with respect to the membership or the employment of individuals of a particular religion to perform work connected with the carrying on by such corporation, association, educational institution or society of its religious activities.”
Additional guidance is expected to be issued Friday by the SBA. Its intent is two-pronged: To help lenders understand the program does not exclude faith-based organizations; and to help churches and other faith-based nonprofits understand the religious liberty protections.Travis Wussow, the ERLC’s general counsel and vice president for public policy, said he was grateful for the resolution and expressed gratitude for the work of the Trump Administration throughout the process.
“It is significant that SBA’s new regulations state that the religious freedom rights of houses of worship and faith-based nonprofits will be upheld in this new loan guarantee program,” Wussow said. “We look forward to further guidance from the Administration, and we’re grateful for the hard work being done to ensure that this new program works for houses of worship.”

CONCLUSION

Whether or not your church should take the Cares Act Stimulus should be a church body / membership decision, NOT solely the pastors. Pastors can and do often leave churches to go on to their next job and pulpit. IF THEY HAVE BUYERS REMORSE .. pastors can start afresh with a church that did not encumber itself while leaving the poor decision behind with the church they led into taking the  SBA money.
Pastors have latitude- the  church does not. The church needs to decide prayerfully and informed fully of the dangers and long term impact.
NOTE- Again with Guide Stones Financial vast wealth in the tens of Billions- why is there no in house rescue /loan plan for Southern Baptist churches? Why have other denominations not proposed that ?
NO CHURCH SHOULD LEAVE THIS DANGEROUS DECISION TO THE PASTORS OR TO POTENTIAL “YES MEN” ON HIS ELDER OR DEACON BOARDS.
Consider the Constitution and the protections and freedoms and status the church has enjoyed for over two centuries in America. Consider the church we will be leaving to the next generation(s) if the world stands. ABOVE ALL- consider prayerfully the Word of God and Biblical history that God’s people can and should and must trust Him in Faith in times of crisis and NOT lean on their own wisdom and self justifications.
We must not depend on the “ARM OF FLESH ”  if we are to remain the Church of the Living God and not a debtor and a beggar at Babylons doorstep.

TRUST GOD -HE DOES NOT LIE

Jeremiah 17:

Thus says the Lord:

“Cursed is the man who trusts in man
And makes flesh his strength,
Whose heart departs from the Lord.
For he shall be like a shrub in the desert,
And shall not see when good comes,
But shall inhabit the parched places in the wilderness,
In a salt land which is not inhabited.

“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
And whose hope is the Lord.
For he shall be like a tree planted by the waters,
Which spreads out its roots by the river,
And will not fear when heat comes;
But its leaf will be green,
And will not be anxious in the year of drought,
Nor will cease from yielding fruit.

UNPRECEDENTED TIMES :CAUTION ADVISED

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

GLOBALIST NEVER SLEEP 

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

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

“What we’re seeing right now with COVID-19 is not the crisis—it’s only phase one. How can the Church be prepared for the coming phases of the COVID-19 pandemic? In this episode, Dhati Lewis interviews Ed Stetzer, executive director of the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College and an expert consultant on crisis management, about the Church’s response to COVID-19, the different phases we’ll experience and the hopeful new normal after the crisis subsides.”

COVID -19 RESPONSE -THE PERFECT STORM

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

WHERE WILL THE CHURCH BE POST COVID-19 ?

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

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

The FAQs: How the Stimulus Bill Affects Churches and Individuals

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

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

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

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

AGAIN NOTE

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

LOCAL CHURCH RESPONSE-COVID-19 TESTING

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

NOTE: 

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

ALSO NOTE:

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

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

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

Jesus somber warnings in the prophets context of –

Matthew 6:24

You Cannot Serve God and Riches

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

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

WE CANNOT SERVE GOD AND GLOBAL GOALS OF GODLESS MEN.

 

 

 

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

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

THE BIG REVEAL

OBAMA FOUNDATION POLITICS IN PLAIN VIEW

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

Reports

NOTE-See ED Stetzer on page 52 of the report you can download at the link above.

STETZER AND THE COMING SBC RESOLUTIONS BATTLE

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

PRO MUSLIM EVENTS AT WHEATON /GRAHAM CENTER

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

GRAHAM CENTER AND OBAMA AMBASSADOR

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

Politics, Polarization, and our Christian Witness Webinar

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

About this Event

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

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

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

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

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

CONCLUSION

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

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

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

Rev Thomas Littleton                                                                                                  3/8/2020

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

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

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

NATIONAL CHRISTIAN FOUNDATION GOING POLITICAL ?

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

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

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

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

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

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

THE REPORT AND ITS PURPOSE

Michael Wears website and Trinity Forum:

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

Evening Conversation | Christianity, Pluralism, & Public Life

“On February 24th, the Trinity Forum hosted an Evening Conversation with Michael Wear, Dr. Amy Black, Bishop Claude Alexander, and Rev. Canon Peg Chemberlin.

Conversation 2: A Civil Discourse

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

DETAILS FROM THE FUNDING DONOR OF THE WEAR /TRINITY REPORT
Again Democracy Fund which is funding the new report is the” foundation created by ebay founder  Pierre Omidyar in 2011. It has been an independent private foundation since 2014. Its stated aim is to improve the democratic process in the United States so that it better benefits voters. Its activities include awarding grants to organizations it believes will further its goal.It also created the Voter Study Group, a collaboration of ideologically diverse scholars and analysts that surveyed 8,000 American voters on their political and social views.”
DOWNLOAD THE REPORT HERE
“Christianity, Pluralism, and Public Life in the United States: Insights from Christian Leaders The Trinity Forum is pleased to introduce a new report authored by Trinity Forum Senior Fellow Michael Wear and Wheaton College professor Amy Black, and made possible by a grant from the Democracy Fund. This report explores the consequences and implications of current cultural trends through the perspective of Christian church and ministry leaders in America. Its findings are based on in-depth interviews with more than 50 Christian leaders from a variety of denominations, traditions, locales, and political and theological perspectives. The findings show sharp political divides between groups, but also reveal a broad consensus around the value of pluralism in America, and the opportunities it brings for Christians to live out their faith, and contribute to the common good and formation of civic character. The resounding message of the report is that Christian thought and practice has much to offer America in this new pluralistic moment.”

for Ethics and Public Policy, The Center for Public Justice, The Brehm Center for Worship, Theology and the Arts, the Coalition of Christian Colleges and Universities, the Christian Community Development Association, private Christian foundations, national
student organizations, and institutions of higher learning.”
Michael Wear is involved in Civilitas  as is Trinity Forum AND leader emeritus  Os Guinness.
CIVILITAS CALLED FOR CHRISTIAN COMPROMISE ON LGBTQ IN JANUARY 2015 6 MONTHS PRIOR TO THE SCOTUS DECISION TO LEGALIZE GAY MARRIAGE.
CIVLITAS CALLED FOR MODELING CHICK FIL A OWNER DAN CATHY COMPROMISE WITH RADICAL GAY ACTIVIST FROM CAMPUS PRIDE .
Some of those involved in Civilitas  like Tim Keller and James Davison Hunter’s IASC
have openly boasted their Frankfurt School  influence.
Os Guinness WHO SIGNED CIVILITAS   is a leader of Trinity Forum and a thought leader in Tim Keller’s progressive organization The Gospel Coalition. Other Trinity leaders include Dallas Willard who provided early leadership in the development of the Oikonomia Network which oversees progressive Social Justice driven grants flooding into conservative seminaries across America.

TRINITY FORUM THOUGHT LEADER OS GUINNESS BETRAYAL ?

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

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

MORE ON TONY PERKINS /FAMILY RESEARCH COUNCIL PARTNERSHIPS

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

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

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

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

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

“Christianity, Pluralism and Public Life in the United States: Insights from Christian Leaders is based on in-depth interviews with more than 50 Christian leaders in the country from a wide array of theological, denominational, racial and political backgrounds. It includes insights, tools, cautions and recommendations regarding Christianity and America’s increasingly pluralistic context, and rather uniquely puts diverse Christians in conversation with one another.

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

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

“How Christians can make positive contributions to public life”

Trinity Forum

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

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

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

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

“We are in uncharted waters.”

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

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

NCF OUTLINES WEAR DOCUMENT GOALS 

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

Work to connect Christian thought to public life

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

Reintroduce Christianity

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

Build bridges

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

Be distinct

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

DEMOCRACY FUND SUPPORTS THESE  EFFORTS

 

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

CIVIC NATION

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

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

CONCLUSION

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

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

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

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

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

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

A unique & crafted brand Socialism is FLOODING THE CHURCH.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Exodus 34:12-15

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

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

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

2 Samuel 23

David’s Last Words

23 Now these are the last words of David.

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

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

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