WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM BOAST “ROLE OF RELIGION / FAITH LEADERS” IN GLOBAL TRANSFORMATION .

ANY CHRISTIAN WHO READS THEIR BIBLE KNOWS THE UNIFYING FORCES SERVING GLOBALIZATION ARE NOT FORMING TO BUILD THE KINGDOM OF GOD. INSTEAD THESE FORCES SEEK “PEACE” THROUGH GLOBAL CONTROLS OF ECONOMY, WORLD HEALTH, AND HUMAN EXISTENCE. “CHRISTIAN LEADERS ” SEEM ALL TOO EAGER TO JOIN THEM.

By Rev Thomas Littleton

Christians are NOT CALLED to save society , promote global pandemic protocols, to order Global Justice or establish Social Change but don’t try and persuade self identified “Christian “leaders like Rick Warren, Walter Kim, Tim Keller, Russell Moore, David Platt, Francis Collins, or Ed Stetzer of this. Since joining forces with globalist at the World Economic Forum , Council on Foreign Relations , The United Nations through evangelical organizations like Lausanne Movement -subscribing to Climate Change, Covid Protocols and Vaccines, and Global Goals – many top tier Christian leaders and self appointed spokesmen have fully subscribed to the heretical movement recruiting the church into “global transformation” and seducing Christians into the rapidly developing and doomed kingdom seeking to rebuild the Tower of Babel”.

WEF AND THE ROLE OF RELIGION ” CHRISTIAN VISION CRISIS IN FULL MELTDOWN

WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM WHEEL CONNECTING TO DOTS TO THE ROLE OF RELIGION IN GLOBAL ISSUES

GLOBAL ISSUE

“Role of Religion”

Curation: Religions for Peace

“Religious institutions and faith leaders increasingly find themselves at the crux of policy-making, behavioural change, and the delivery of essential services. The COVID-19 pandemic, conflict, and climate change have exposed the vulnerabilities of aid delivered solely by governments and the private sector. Multi-religious collaboration can provide an essential push towards greater social cohesion, to better protect human rights and democracy, pursue conflict mediation and reconciliation, increase environmental sustainability (particularly the protection of rainforests), foster gender equality and women’s empowerment, provide humanitarian relief, and boost public health.”

“This briefing is based on the views of a wide range of experts from the World Economic Forum’s Expert Network and is curated in partnership with Dr. Azza Karam and Religions for Peace leaders.”

SOME OF THE EVANGELICALS BIG FACING WITH GLOBAL GOALS DECEPTIONS

FRANCIS COLLINS AND ED STETZER -TWO MAJOR GLOBAL EVANGLEICAL COLLABORATORS

Collins actually moderated a ” conversation” in 2017 for WEF on:

“Davos 2017 – A Conversation on the Future of Medicine”


“World Economic Forum
708K subscribersSUBSCRIBEhttp://www.weforum.org/ Join Atul Gawande, renowned surgeon and author of Being Mortal, and Francis Collins, celebrated geneticist and science policy leader, on the future of healthcare leadership and biomedical research. – Francis S. Collins, Director, National Institutes of Health, USA – Atul Gawande, Executive Director, Ariadne Labs; Surgeon, Brigham and Women’s Healthcare, USA.”

RICK WARREN AT WEF /DAVOS MEETINGS

WORLDVIEW WEEKEND/ BRANNON HOWSE FIRST REPORTED THE ROLES WARREN AND FRANCIS COLLINS HAD BEEN PLAYING AT DAVOS AND WEF.

No one has led the cutting edge of exposing these co-opted Christians by WEF, global goals interest and DAVOS than Brannon Howse of Worldview Weekend TV and Radio / Frankspeech /Lindell TV . His books like Marxianity and many before it have both predicted and tracked the advancement of these deceptions years in advance of them becoming obvious and undeniable or covered by others in Christian media. The church owes Brannon Howse and a few others like him a great debt of gratitude .

A MUST READ BY BRANNON HOWSE -THIS BOOK DETAILS THE EVENTS MAKING HEADLINES IN THE CHURCH TODAY WELL IN ADVANCE OF THEIR UNFOLDING IN THE HEADLINES .

RICK WARREN AND DAVOS

RICK WARREN AT DAVOS

“This is Rick Warren author of The Purpose Driven Life and pastor of Saddleback Church. I’m here at Davos with a lot of my friends and we’re talking about what are the biggest problems on the planet and how are we going to solve them. Right now, I think there are five that I call global giants: extreme poverty, pandemic diseases, illiteracy, corruption and the spiritual emptiness.”

“These problems are so big nobody’s been able to solve them. The US hasn’t solved them, the UN hasn’t solved them, nobody’s solved them. And I think it’s because it’s going to take a three-pronged strategy to do this. There is a role for the public sector, there is a role for the private sector and there is a role for the faith sector.”

 “There is a role for the public sector, there is a role for the private sector and there is a role for the faith sector. Each of them can do something that none of the other three can do. Government has a role to set agenda, government has a role to set priorities and things like that and move nations. And there are some things that only governments can do. Businesses have a role which they have: they bring expertise, they bring investments, they bring all kinds of innovations to the market. But then, also, houses of worship have things that businesses and government will never have. In the first place, we have universal distribution. The church was global 200 years before Davos started talking about globalization.”

(QUOTES AND PHOTO TAKEN FROM CAPSTONE REPORT STORY FEB 2022)

THERE IS NOW A “CHRISTIAN ECONOMIC FORUM /DAVOS FOR CHISTIAN LEADERS”

EXCERPT:

OPPRESSION IN THE MORNING JUSTICE FIRES BY NIGHT

“As the world’s populations were forced to lock themselves in their homes, social distance, mask their faces, keep their kids out of schools ,cancel Christmas and other family holiday gatherings, funerals, weddings and anything resembling normal life- the reality emerged that a small group of billionaires and financial powerbrokers making up the World Economic Forum and its annual meeting in Davos Switzerland had been planning and dreaming …wishing and hoping for just such a Pandemic to provide the perfect catalyst for their global seizure /power grab. And now they finally had it firmly in hand. THEN THEY LIT THE FIRES OF JUSTICE .”

LEADERS LIKE TIM KELLER, J D GREEAR AND DAVID PLATT PUSH GLOBAL JUSTICE DRIVEN “INVESTING ” ON UNSUSPECTING CHRISTIANS ?

EXCERPT :

SO HOW DO WE MATE THE GREAT COMMISSION WITH THE GREAT RESET?

“Are you buying?”

“This simply looks like a way to siphon money straight off the “Faith Driven Investors” portfolio and into “global justice” initiatives while saying it is for the Gospel. If not then how can it be partners with World Economic Forum and BlackRock Inc who have no Gospel interest at all but overtly drive a global justice focus?”

Evangelical leftist like Jim Wallis have been involved with WEF and Davos for years .

From 2009 meetings of “Religious Leaders

“DAVOS-KLOSTERS/SWITZERLAND, 30JAN09 – Lord Carey of Clifton(VLTR), Archbishop of Canterbury (1991-2002), United Kingdomduring, Jonathan Sacks, Chief Rabbi of the United Hebrew Congregations of the Commonwealth, United Kingdom, Mustafa Ceric, Grand Mufti of Bosnia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Jim Wallis, Editor-in-Chief and Chief Executive Officer, Sojournes, USA, , captured at the press conference ‘Religious leaders call for the peace in the middle east’ at the Annual Meeting 2009 of the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, January 30, 2009.”
Date

BY 2015 LEADERS WERE “TAKING FAITH TO THE WEF”

“This week in Abu Dhabi, the annual Summit on the Global Agenda – the world’s largest brainstorming event – brought together the thought leaders of the World Economic Forum’s Network of Global Agenda Councils, comprising more than 80 groups of experts from academia, business, civil society, international organizations and government.”

“Among these councils, members of the Global Agenda Council on the Role of Faith aim to provide thought leadership that furthers within World Economic Forum activities the understanding of faith’s complex influence on global affairs. The council and its members seek to raise awareness of the criticality of “religious literacy” – ensuring leaders from government, business and civil society adequately comprehend religion’s nuances and drivers, as well as its impact on communities, markets and governance. It aims to transform perspectives on faith in government and the private sector, specifically in nations experiencing dramatic change (for example, immigration dynamics, internal conflicts, freedom of beliefs/religion and emerging market challenges).”

“The council is developing a toolkit to teach religious literacy through awareness, assessment and analysis. The first part of this toolkit highlights the impact faith has on economies, particularly through demographic and market analysis”

WEF PROJECT THE FUTURE OF THE RELIGIOUS WORLD

AMONG THE TOPICS

“HOW RELIGIOUS WILL THE WORLD BE IN 2050?”

https://www.weforum.org/agenda/2015/10/how-religious-will-the-world-be-in-2050/

“Below are the main takeaways of global religious and economic change, ordered by the projected size of religious groups in 2050

Christianity

  • The growth of the global Christian population is projected to be about the same rate as overall global population growth between 2010-2050.
  • The largest share of the world’s Christians lived in the Americas as of 2010, while the largest share of Christians is expected to be in Sub-Saharan Africa by 2050.
  • Economic growth among the global Christian population is expected to increase, but be significantly less than economic growth in the world as a whole.
  • In the years ahead, the global distribution of economic influence associated with Christian populations is expected to remain largely dominated by the Americas, with Europe slightly decreasing in influence and Sub-Saharan Africa and Asia-Pacific regions slightly increasing.

Islam

  • The number of Muslims in the world is expected to nearly double between 2010 and 2050 and Muslims are expected to lead the world in population growth compared with other religious groups.
  • The largest share of the world’s Muslims lived in the Asia-Pacific region as of 2010 and will continue to live in this region in the decades ahead.
  • Economic growth among the global Muslim population is expected to significantly outpace global economic growth.
  • India is expected to have the largest Muslim population of any country in the world by 2050, surpassing Indonesia.
  • In the years ahead, slightly more than half of the economic influence associated with Muslim populations is expected to be in the Asia-Pacific region, with India’s economic overall growth also helping to add some to the global economic resources of Muslims.

Religiously Unaffiliated

  • The growth of the global religiously unaffiliated population is slowing at a much faster rate than global population growth.
  • The largest share of the world’s religiously unaffiliated population lived in the Asia-Pacific region as of 2010 with over half of the entire world’s unaffiliated people living in China. Population growth of the religious unaffiliated population in the Americas is expected to be substantially higher than growth in other regions of the world.
  • Economic growth among the global religiously unaffiliated population is expected to be on par with global economic growth in the years ahead.
  • The global distribution of economic influence associated with religiously unaffiliated populations is expected to grow in the Asia-Pacific region, with economic influence decreasing slightly in Europe and the Americas.”

RECENTLY MORE LEADERS FROM THE MAINSTREAM CONTINUE TO FLOOD IN

The evangelical landscape is changing rapidly. FEW mainstream leaders or their organizations and affiliates seem able to resist a seat at the table of the global cabal.To what end have the been invited to speak and participate ?

To Recruit the Church and the religions of the world into the grand vision of globalism

To persuade wealthy Western Christians that the Gospel is advanced through their “investments in Global Justice” – to perhaps separate them from their $$$ in what may be the largest financial scam in the world boasting some $150 trillion in the balance .

To round off the rough edges of exclusivity in the Gospel which asserts such foundational truths of Jesus Divinity- His sole role as Savior – the need for repentance -and the rejection of the kingdoms of this world for HIS Kingdom come.

To meld all Faiths into the melting pot of Global Spirituality

And to – among other godless and anti -christ visions

To preach submission to and participation in the establishment of Babylon the Great Harlot of Revelation 17 and 18 SEEKING TO ENSLAVE HUMANITY .

FOLLOW MORE ON THE WEF GLOBAL “TRANSFORMATIONL MAP”.

Transformation Maps

“Transformation Maps can help you explore and make sense of the connections between different economies, industries and global issues. It is a dynamic way of exploring the transformational forces that relate to a topic, such as Climate Change or Artificial Intelligence, co-curated with leading universities and international organizations. Explore and get clarity on the most relevant strategic issues covering more than 250 topic areas. Identify the most relevant expert publications, videos, data, events, initiatives and stakeholders in those areas.”

CONCLUSION

WEF AND HER FALSE CHRISTIAN PROPHETS- YOUR MONEY PERISH WITH YOU!

Pretty simple for discerning Christians to understand that the WEF and its goals for the future are not compatible with the Word of God- the Great Commission , the Good News of the Jesus , or with Global Sustainability Goals and the organizations who promote them. ALSO is VERY clear that those co-opted leaders seeking to spread the WEF/ DAVOS global false gospel ARE NOT sent by God but by those whose antithetical agenda they serve.

Revelation 18

The Fall of Babylon the Great

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

And I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins, and lest you receive of her plagues. For her sins [c]have reached to heaven, and God has remembered her iniquities. Render to her just as she rendered [d]to you, and repay her double according to her works; in the cup which she has mixed, mix double for her. In the measure that she glorified herself and lived [e]luxuriously, in the same measure give her torment and sorrow; for she says in her heart, ‘I sit as queen, and am no widow, and will not see sorrow.’ Therefore her plagues will come in one day—death and mourning and famine. And she will be utterly burned with fire, for strong is the Lord God who judges her.

The World Mourns Babylon’s Fall

“The kings of the earth who committed fornication and lived luxuriously with her will weep and lament for her, when they see the smoke of her burning, 10 standing at a distance for fear of her torment, saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city Babylon, that mighty city! For in one hour your judgment has come.’

11 “And the merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her, for no one buys their merchandise anymore: 12 merchandise of gold and silver, precious stones and pearls, fine linen and purple, silk and scarlet, every kind of citron wood, every kind of object of ivory, every kind of object of most precious wood, bronze, iron, and marble; 13 and cinnamon and incense, fragrant oil and frankincense, wine and oil, fine flour and wheat, cattle and sheep, horses and chariots, and bodies and souls of men. 14 The fruit that your soul longed for has gone from you, and all the things which are rich and splendid have gone from you, and you shall find them no more at all. 15 The merchants of these things, who became rich by her, will stand at a distance for fear of her torment, weeping and wailing, 16 and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city that was clothed in fine linen, purple, and scarlet, and adorned with gold and precious stones and pearls! 17 For in one hour such great riches came to nothing.’ Every shipmaster, all who travel by ship, sailors, and as many as trade on the sea, stood at a distance 18 and cried out when they saw the smoke of her burning, saying, ‘What is like this great city?’

19 “They threw dust on their heads and cried out, weeping and wailing, and saying, ‘Alas, alas, that great city, in which all who had ships on the sea became rich by her wealth! For in one hour she is made desolate.’

20 “Rejoice over her, O heaven, and you holy apostles and prophets, for God has avenged you on her!”

ACSI /ASSOCIATION OF CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS INTERNATIONAL -RESOURCES TEACHERS WITH REVOICE LGBTQ+ INCLUSION TRAINING

IN UTTER DISREGARD FOR PARENTS & CHRISTIAN EDUCATORS ACSI MOVES BEYOND “UNIFYED” CRT & BLACK LIBERATION THEOLOGY PARTNERSHIP TO PROMOTE MULTIPLE LGBTQ+ REVOICE LEADERS TO RESOURCE TRAINING OF TEACHERS.

Rev Thomas Littleton

3/21/2022

Association of Christian Schools International / ACSI Global has launched a teacher training manual called PFO2Go Boarding Track Guide for teachers. In march of 2021 ACSI announced its Diversity Equity Inclusion focus in partnership with Black Liberation Theology and Critical Race Theory activist professor from SEBTS seminary named Walter Strickland.

Now it appears ACSI has used its Global training to complete the Inclusion of LGBTQ+ resources with radicals of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary incubated Revoice LGBT+ Thrirving in the Church movement.

THE MARCH 2021 UNIFYED PARTNERSHIP FOR DIVERSITY EQUITY &INCLUSION

“Colorado Springs, Colo. – The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and UnifiEd: A Center for Hope and Unity (UnifiEd) are partnering to provide Christian educators with biblically based resources on diversity, inclusion and racial reconciliation.”

“The alliance is aligned with ACSI’s Flourishing Initiative…CSI President, Dr. Larry Taylor, believes that a truly thriving Christian community is one that intentionally fosters a culture of Christ-honoring unity.”

“Dr. Walter Strickland II, UnifiEd Executive Director, defined the effective pursuit of unity as one that is theologically oriented, data-driven and aptly resourced.”

“Cultural intelligence is a prerequisite to reconciliation and a necessity for every ambassador for Christ—despite the demographics of their school,” he said. “Scripture is the source that provides the motivation and methods for our approach to pursuing unity.”

ON TO THE REVOICE PARTNER RESOURCES

PFO2Go MANUEL FOR BOARDING TRACK GUIDE FROM 2021

PFO2Go is for Incoming International Teaching Staff

“Leaders of International Christian schools can make a solid investment in their incoming expat staff with the convenience and flexibility of on-line and on-demand learning. Whether teachers prepare before they go, watch on the plane flying to their new destination or take time during an initial quarantine window, all one needs is a laptop and Wifi to gain access this realistic, yet inspiring training”

NOTE- You will not find Revoice leaders listed on the ACSI website but can find them in “Session 6 on page 14

https://www.acsi.org/docs/default-source/global-international/pfo2go/pfo2go-boarding-track-guide-v-2021-0-2.pdf?sfvrsn=452f3202_2

“Boarding Track Session Six
Youth Culture Trends”

“Goals for this session:
• To make participants aware of youth culture trends impacting their students
• To provide resources for engaging youth culture trends
• To raise awareness about shaping technology usage”

Video Length: 15:13 minutes
“When you are ready, go to the Boarding Track course webpage and watch Session 6. Keep this guide nearby, have a way to take notes or write down questions that arise in your mind, and then press play.”

Reflect

  1. Why is it important in your role in the dorm to become a student of youth culture?
  2. Why is it important that boarding staff become comfortable and well-versed in scripturally
    rooted conversations around sexuality?
    a. The Center for Faith, Sexuality, and Gender books, especially A People to be Loved.
    b. Theology in the Raw with Preston Sprinkle
    c. PostureShift and the book, Guiding Families of LGBT+ Loved Ones
    d. Sam Allberry’s books
    e. Greg Coles’ book

PRESTON SPRINKLE- Sprinkle is head of The Center for Sexuality and Gender which just announced a podcast training Christian Educators of his own . Likely it was inspired by the ACSI partnership . Sprinkle is a key Revoice leader and author of several LGBTQ inclusion books including the one resourced here “People to be Loved.”

Sprinkles blog is “Theology in the Raw”

Posture Shift is an “LGBTQ Inclusion coaching organization led by Bill Henson who is also a Revoice leader and speaker .

“Posture Shift Ministries, Inc. is a leading training and consulting resource for church and ministry leaders on LGBT+ inclusion and care. We serve leadership teams around the globe – including churches, private schools, camps, student and youth ministries, counseling teams, and other para-church ministries.”

OUR VISION AND MISSION

“Our vision is Loving LGBT+ People in the Church. We are writing a new church history where Christian communities of faith and homes are the safest places for LGBT+ family and friends.”

“We achieve our vision via four missional goals: enhance church inclusion, increase family acceptance, protect against victimization, and nourish faith identity in LGBT+ lives.”

SAM ALLBERRY

Sam Allberry is the self identified “gay (Anglican ) Priest” from the UK who has become well known for his role as editor for the now disgraced Ravi Zacharias ministries and the controversial Neo-Calvinist movement of D A Carson and Tim Keller called The Gospel Coalition. TGC also promotes MANY Revoice leaders and their books along with regular contributing promoters of CRT and other Diversity Equity and Inclusion writers and advocates.

Allberry is most infamous for his ministry “Living Out ” promoting Revoice “for our US audience” as he and Tim Keller and wife Kathy launched an “LGBTQ Inclusion Church Audit ” to examine churches welcome and inclusion metrics for LGBTQ+ Flourishing.That was in 2018 as Revoice launched its movement and first conference held in a (conservative denomination) PCA church . Revoice has already SPLIT The PCA once and is likely to again very soon.

Allberrys books have been heavily promoted by TGC and a variety of LGBTQ inclusion advocates and Allberry remains active globe trotting his SSA/ Celibate / Inclusion / Hospitality message around the Neo Calvinist World .

GREGORY COLES

Greg Coles is a TGC contributor and Revoice leader and it’s “Worship ” leader. Coles book “Single Gay Christian” is endorsed by TGC cofounder D A Carson .

“To say this book is important is a painful understatement. It is the candid, moving, intensely personal story of a gay young man who wants to live his life under the authority of King Jesus and who refuses to accept the comforting answers proffered by different parts of the culture. Superbly written, this book stands athwart the shibboleths of our day and reminds us what submission to King Jesus looks like, what it feels like. This book needs to be thoughtfully read by straight people and by gay people, by unbelievers and by Christians. It is not to be read with a condescending smirk, but with humility.”

“D. A. Carson, president, The Gospel Coalition”

Coles boldly asserts the controversial view of the existence of and normalization OF “Gay Christianity” and makes bizarre claims in his book about homosexual desire in the Garden of Eden before the fall which God declares “good” . (page 45 of his book )

In his book Coles describes himself thus:

“I’m gay.”

“I’ll show you the world through my eyes. I’ll tell you what it’s like to belong nowhere. To know that much of my Christian family will forever consider me unnatural, dangerous, because of something that feels as involuntary as my eye color. And to know that much of the LGBTQ community that shares my experience as a sexual minority will disagree with the way I’ve chosen to interpret the call of Jesus, believing I’ve bought into a tragic, archaic ritual of self-hatred.”

“But I promise my story won’t all be sadness and loneliness and struggle. I’ll tell you good things too, hopeful things, funny things, like the time I accidentally came out to my best friend during his bachelor party. I’ll tell you what it felt like the first time someone looked me in the eyes and said, “You are not a mistake.”

ACSI IS HOOKING ITS TEACHER TRAINING TO ERROR AND DIVISION

ALL of the Revoice ideology is rooted in SOGI or Sexual Orientation Gender Identity of the American Psychological Association and its Interfaith Christian Influencer Mark Yarhouse to whom all these carefully selected activist and writers resourced by ACSI look to as their thought leader.

YARHOUSE AND TGC/ D A CARSON WHITEPAPER IN 2010 SET APA AS THE GOLD STANDARD FOR TGC AND MANY OTHER “CHRISTIAN ” ORGANIZATIONS IN THEIR WAKE

“Dr. Yarhouse is the past recipient of the Gary R. Collins Award for Excellence in Christian Counseling (American Association of Christian Counselors) and the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence at Regent University. He was a past participant with the Ethics and Public Policy Center think tank in Washington, DC, and he was named Senior Fellow with the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities to conduct a study of students navigating sexual identity concerns at Christian colleges and universities. He has been a consultant to the National Institute of Corrections to address issues facing sexual minorities in corrections, and he was part of a consensus panel from the American Psychological Association on sexual orientation and gender identity change efforts that convened to provide input to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) in Washington, DC. Dr. Yarhouse is currently the Chair of the task force on LGBT issues for Division 36 (Psychology of Religion and Spirituality) of the American Psychological Association. He was also invited to write the featured white paper on sexual identity for the Christ on Campus Initiative edited by Don A. Carson for The Gospel Coalition”

SOGI THE CONTRADICTION OF “SEXUAL SCIENCE”

SOGI Asserts that;

Sexual Orientation is fixed, inborn and unchanging

While at the same time Biological or “Birth Gender ” is fluid and can /does change

Think on this flawed science for a while and consider that now SOGI is the international standard for Human Rights for LGBTQ activist and the legal and medical language for “normal” , for litigation and for healthcare policy including minors wanting to change their gender via cruel and horrific treatments and surgeries.

YES THIS IS WHAT ACSI IS RESOURCING FOR TRAINING THIER TEACHERS IN CHRISTIAN EDUCATION

DAVID PLATT AND ACSI MANUEL

Troubled “Radical ” pastor David Platt who NOW WORKS WITH REVOICE LEADERS and is being sued by this own church for his false social justice errors abuses and violation of its bylaws is also part of the ACSI PFO2Go training .

Boarding Track Session 5
Creating Culture in the Dorm

page 12 of the PFO2Go document

“Goals for this session:
• To apply what participants have learned about culture to learning culture in the dorm
• To empower participants to create dorm culture rather than just consume or critique culture
Video Length: 14:37 minutes
Before digging into Session 5 please find time to watch this 40-minute sermon from David Platt entitled, “Die to Sin, to Ourselves, and to the World, John 12:24-25.” In this powerful sermon Platt unpacks some of the amazing history of the Korean Christian church from early 1900’s until now. What you will learn about the Christian church in Korea will likely surprise and challenge you. There is a good chance that you will have Korean MKs in your dorm program, these young people are the very descendants of the Korea revival that Platt tells you about. You will discuss this below.
When you are ready, go to the Boarding Track course webpage and watch Session 5. Keep this guide nearby, have a way to take notes or write down questions that arise in your mind, and then press
play.”

A REMINDER OF HOW MUCH INFLUENCE ACSI HAS :

About ACSI:

“Headquartered in Colorado Springs, Colo., ACSI exists to strengthen Christian schools and equip Christian educators worldwide as they prepare students academically and inspire them to become devoted followers of Jesus Christ. ACSI advances excellence in Christian schools by enhancing the professional and personal development of Christian educators and providing vital support functions for Christian schools through multiple services including teacher and administrator certification, school accreditation, legal/legislative assistance, and curriculum publishing. Serving more than 25,000 schools in 108 countries, ACSI helps more than 5.5 million students worldwide connect to Christian education.”

CONCLUSION

Association of Christian Schools International is likely not coming back from the black hole of Diversity Equity and Inclusion it has embraced to its own demise. BUT it does not have to have its way with your Christian School or be allowed to teach this error to your children right under your noses. Christian parents who pay for Christian education are “Stakeholders” and not spectators and the trust afforded by parents to ACSI leaders, school administrators and teachers is a sacred one. ACSI’s job – though they seem to have forgotten, is NOT to make Global Citizens seeking Global Justice of our children BUT to HELP us as we seek to make them into Disciples of Jesus. Over 25,000 schools in 108 countries is a lot of responsibility and a massive failure to allow. GOD HATES the deception of His lambs and warns such thoughtless or evil conduct will be dealt with the most severity and Holy of Divine Judgement.

ON THE OTHER HAND WE ARE REMINDED

PROVERBS

22 good name is to be chosen rather than great riches,
Loving favor rather than silver and gold.

The rich and the poor have this in common,
The Lord is the maker of them all.

A prudent man foresees evil and hides himself,
But the simple pass on and are punished.

By humility and the fear of the Lord
Are riches and honor and life.

Thorns and snares are in the way of the perverse;
He who guards his soul will be far from them.

Train up a child in the way he should go,
And when he is old he will not depart from it.

“DAVOS FOR CHRISTIANS” FAITH DRIVEN INVESTING OR JUSTICE DRIVEN DECEPTION?

FAITH DRIVEN INVESTORS IS A COLLABORATIVE OF CHRISTIAN FINACIAL ORGANIZATIONS WHO ESPOUSE INVESTING 100% OF GOD’S RESOURCES YOU STEWARD INTO THE KINGDOM. BUT WHERE IS THE THE KINGDOM OF GOD IN THE VISION OF DAVOS / WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM / DIGITAL CURRENCY / AGENDA 2030 AND RABID SOCIAL JUSTICE DRIVEN GLOBALISM?

Rev Thomas Littleton

3-14-2022

Nothing has alarmed the people of the entire world MORE than the disturbing controls and power grabs related to the economic ,societal impacts and frightening losses of personal freedom resulting from the Pandemic of 2020. In case you only want complicit media check out social media post from Europe, Canada , Australia , Asia ,Latin America and cities across the US and see that even young millennials indoctrinated and drowning in socialism have taken to the streets in mass to protest for their freedom from the grip of globalist .

OPPRESSION IN THE MORNING JUSTICE FIRES BY NIGHT

As the world’s populations were forced to lock themselves in their homes, social distance, mask their faces, keep their kids out of schools ,cancel Christmas and other family holiday gatherings, funerals, weddings and anything resembling normal life- the reality emerged that a small group of billionaires and financial powerbrokers making up the World Economic Forum and its annual meeting in Davos Switzerland had been planning and dreaming …wishing and hoping for just such a Pandemic to provide the perfect catalyst for their global seizure /power grab. And now they finally had it firmly in hand. THEN THEY LIT THE FIRES OF JUSTICE .

JUSTICE RISING AS THE LOCKDOWNS CONTINUED BLM SETS THE WORLS ON FIRE

Yet as “lockdowns and oppression continued then the same forces and funding helped the world burst into flames after the death of George Floyd and promotion of the radical the Black Lives Matter Movement swept the globe. The Pandemic and it’s media blitz turned to massive public memorial services and protest marches with no concerns for spreading the Pandemic .The marches quickly gave way to violence and flames.

To the politicians, preachers and city leaders who took to the streets with BLM -the fears of the virus seemed to go away as the cry for justice rang out.

DO NOT THINK THIS WAS HAPPNENSTANCE

For the average Jane and Joe watching the sudden shift from fear to activism was confusing enough. It was hard to fathom the mindless support of the RIOTS DESPITE potential spread of the Virus .Then came utter lawlessness ,calls for defunding police feeding the global media circus of both the Pandemic and BLM,The citizens of the nations began to doubt the narratives of their leaders and question the obvious opportunism and Delusions of Grandeur of globalist as players like WEF, Gates, Soros, Klaus Schwab and Davos emerged to own the day. Why had these people planning well in advance to seize upon the opportunity provided by the prediction of a global pandemic to make their economic and justice power grab? Remember Event 201? This is the reason many began to call the global events and controls a “Plannedemic “.

DON’T FORGET WHERE THE SELF IMPORTANT PREACHERS PLACED THEMSELVES!

AT THE FRONT OF THE PARADES FOR BOTH THE PANDEMIC AND THE PROTEST.

Self made icon evangelicals like Ed Stetzer took to the streets with BLM after having led the narrative for the church on the pandemic responses. So Covid and Christian justice go hand in hand .

WORLD ECONOMIC FORUMS BIG “POST COVID IDEAS”

SHAPING THE POST COVID PANDEMIC ERA

“The idea that we need to rebuild differently after COVID-19 is widely shared. The window for action is open and Shapers responded”

“In the post-pandemic era, a prosperous future demands a new and ambitious culture of leadership. One that is inclusive, transparent and accountable, and that proactively seeks to raise standards of justice, equity and sustainability”

SO JUSTICE RISING IS THE REAL AGENDA?

WEARISOME PHRASES NOW DOMINATE THE WORLD AND THE CHURCH

HERE IS WHAT IS NOW ON THE TABLE

GLOBAL JUSTICE

ECONOMIC JUSTICE

DISTRIBUTIVE JUSTICE (WHO GETS WHAT )

PROCEDURAL JUTICE

RETRIBUTIVE JUSTICE

RESTORATIVE JUSTICE

INTERSECTIONAL JUSTICE

PICK ONE AND RUN WITH IT ? OR COLLABORATE WITH THE WHOLE

ENTER “THE DAVOS FOR CHRISTIAN LEADERS/CHRISTIAN ECONOMIC FORUM

The Christian financial industry look to have chosen economic and distributive justice along with direct inspiration and partnering with World Economic Forum people and ideology and global players like BlackRock INC. to move the market of Christian investing toward United Nations Global Sustainable Development Goals. They even a herd of well know preachers as pitch men at the front of their own parade.

Crown Financial -a leader in the Christian financial world led by Chuck Bentley has been inspired to found a movement following in the wake of Davos and WEF and Global Justice

IS THIS STOCKHOLM ( OR DAVOS ) SYNDROME OF JUST WRECKLESS IGNORANCE?

FIRST ARTICLE ON THESE CONCERNS

NOTES FROM -INTERVIEW ON THE FOUNDING OF “CHRISTIAN ECONOIMIC FORUM”

https://www.faithdriveninvestor.org/podcast-inventory/episode-27-chuck-bentley

“Every once in awhile, we get to have conversations with living legends. Today is one of those days. If you’ve been around the faith driven conversation, you’ve most likely heard the name, Chuck Bentley. “

“Chuck is the CEO of Crown Ministries, as well as the Founder and Executive Director of the Christian Economic Forum. His fingerprints are all over the Faith Driven Investor and Entrepreneur websites, and today’s episode is a reminder of why. “

“He’s been a faithful steward of this conversation, he freely shares his wisdom born out of experience, and our conversation with him today is one you’ll enjoy…”

NOTES- FROM THE INTERVIEW

Chuck Bentley  is being interviewed by Henry Kaestner co-founder of Faith Driven Investor . “Stewardship is big deal” is a central part of the agreed upon narrative.

NOTE: Stewardship is a way of reminding you that your possessions are not your own but Gods entrusted to you . Fine but let the steward decide when and where to use what they are entrusted with rather than the outsiders like politicians or in this case perhaps the “Great Reset ” driven investment firm ?

“Money flows toward trust like water goes down hill” is Bentley’s mantra BUT isn’t it fair to ask “how can Christians trust The Great Reset” or BlackRock , Agenda 2030 or World Economic Forum with God’s resources entrusted to them? What about the basis of “trust” for Faith Driven financial firms who subscribe to and openly espouse the same global justice mantra as WEF?

Chuck Bentley and Kaestner believe CEF really good and really helpful and discuss the “founding of Davos for Christian Believers”.

HOW DID CHRISTIAN ECONOMIC FORUM/DAVOD FOR CHRISTIAN LEADERS COME ABOUT ?

Henry Kaestner: ” So tell us about the Christian Economic Forum. It was born out of much of the work that you’d seen happen with Crown and people that had been gathered around. But tell us how it started. Tell us about the work and how it’s grown and why I think it’s so cool.”

Chuck Bentley: “One of the things that happened to me as I was traveling the world opening crown offices, that was my job for many years. So I’ve been to every continent except the cold ones, except the ones where they’re covered in tundra. And we were starting offices and the people that would greet me at the airport were invariably the top Christian leaders in those countries. And I could just go around the world and just point out who’s who of people who were the best Christian investors, the best Christian entrepreneurs, the best Christian stewards in their country”….” The idea came when I was standing in the airport with my wife in Zurich, Switzerland, leaving a meeting where I’d met some of these great Christian leaders. The world was coming in to go to Davos, but I thought, we need something on par with that. That’s got the same professionalism, but allows people with the Christian world view to really share their hearts where they’re not going to be asked for money. They’re not going to be given a job to do, but they’re going to be able to share their knowledge and wisdom with other people. So that’s how we got started.”

CHUCK BENTLY BOAST OF HIS FREINDSHIP AND KINSHIP WITH A CHIEF CHINESE ECONOMIST IN – WEF”STORIES”

Chuck Bentley: “Well, I’ve got lots of favorite stories, Henry. One of them is the fact that the top Christian economist inside of China is a part of our forum. He was an atheist, sent to the United States to study the reason for our prosperity. He did an academic study. All of his research went back to China at the risk of his own life. And as an atheist said, I’ve got good news and bad news. The good news is I’ve discovered the secret of why America is more prosperous in China. The bad news is you’re not going to like the answer. Christianity. And he documented the fact that the Judeo-Christian ethic, the values and the operating principles of God’s economy are what accelerated us ahead of the rest of the world. And he defended that in a white paper that was read by 100 hundred million people at the risk of his own life. And through that research, he came to faith in Christ. And when I read the paper, I read it in The Wall Street Journal. And I said, you know, this guy is a kindred spirit with me. I believe that is the solution to the world’s economic problems is to know God’s principles. And so through a series of really miraculous events in my life, I ended up sitting at a conference next to the author of that whitepaper. We had never been introduced. And there we were side by side. I didn’t speak Chinese and he didn’t speak English. But through a translator, we met each other. And that began a lifelong friendship of two people who believe that we need to perpetuate the advancement of God’s financial principles to the whole world. And so he became somewhat of a partner, a silent partner in this endeavor. And he continues to help us to grow the forum and to spread that truth to every nation that we possibly can. That’s just one of them, Henry. Tell me your favorite story and that will stimulate some more of mine.”

REBUILDING THE TOWER OF BABEL …FOR THE RIGHT REASONS ?

MOST OUTLANDISH THOUGHT? DE -TOWER OF BABLE REBUILDING THE TOWER FOR THE RIGHT REASONS ?

Chuck Bentley: Well, I think a couple of things. I hope that there’s more collaboration. I’d really appreciate some of the terminology that you and Luke have introduced to the movement to try to thank you. Say to try to de-tower of Babel this thing is it.

Henry Kaestner: It is. And for our listeners, we’ve got the video going right now. And so Chuck can see this picture of the Tower of Babel is behind me on my wall. I continue to be fascinated by what does it look like when the body of Christ comes together to build something not for their glory, but for God’s glory? And how special might that be if, you know, Brueghel’s painting, you know, the intricacy and the detail and the scope of this tower that they are building that, of course, was doomed for failure because there are building for the wrong reasons. But Chuck is talking to of course is what does it look like for a bunch of us to come together.”

DID HE REALLY SAY THAT ?

YES HE DID- YES THEY DID – AND SEEM TO THINK IT IS ALL A GOOD AND MARKETABLE IDEA.

THEOS THINK TANK OF THE UK BOAST THAT THE “GREAT RESET NEEDS A THEOLOGY”

“Why the ‘Great Reset’ needs theology”

“Whilst the World Economic Forum’s own promo video recognises the need to engage its detractors and bring a more diverse group of individuals to the conversation, in an era of mistrust of elites we might do well to look elsewhere altogether. Perhaps this is the opportunity for a great reset not only in our systems, but also in our sources of wisdom.”

“Christian ethicist and theologian Cynthia Moe–Lobeda writes that,”

When something new is required of humankind, something new is required of Earth’s longstanding faith traditions, primary sources of moral wisdom and moral courage.’[3]

“Often our discussions of the role of faith groups in a crisis are too economistic, conflating their importance with the practical value they demonstrate in food banks and the like. But the cultural and intellectual capital of religious traditions matters even for those who do not share its metaphysical premises. Theology offers a valuable moral and spiritual anchor for a world in crisis.”

” Perhaps uniquely, the social doctrine expressed in papal encyclicals is equally critical of both left– and right–wing ideologies and thus offers the hope of a non–partisan challenge to unconstrained inequality. In this vein, our current Theos work on inequality, drawing on last year’s Bridging the Gap, seeks to explore and articulate what Christian theology in particular can contribute to the dialogue about economic inequality.”

CHRISTIAN ECONIMIC FORUM -AS A “DAVOS FOR CHRISTIAN LEADERS” LOOKS TO BE PREPARED TO NOT ONLY HELP IN BRINGING CHRISTIAN THEOLOGY BUT ALSO CHRISTIAN “INVESTMENT ” TO THE TUNE OF A POTENTIAL $150 TRILLION (WITH A T ) TO THE WORLD ECONOMIC FORUMS TABLE FOR “THE GREAT RESET”.

-SEE BELOW- ZERO DOUBT IS LEFT ABOUT THE “THEOLOGY ” OF SOCIAL JUSTICE AS A CORE ELEMENT OF CHRISTIAN ECONOMIC FORUM AND “FAITH DRIVEN INVESTOR” COLLABORATIVE

CHRISTIAN ECONIMIC FORUM’S BRANDING A “NEW VISION FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE” VIA NY TIMES ARTICLE DAVID BROOKS AND WHEATON ACTIVIST

Follow carefully the nuanced NYT article branded by “faith driven Investors on social media April 2021

(NOTE: Christian economic Forum promoted a NYT piece by David Brooks in which he highlighted a social justice warrior /activist professor of NT from Wheaton. He is pictured in the post above on Faith Driven Investor social media branded with their logo.

THE NUANCE IN THE POST IS SHOCKING

THE FAITH DRIVEN INVESTOR POST LEAVES OUT THE SUBTITLE

THE FAITH DRIVEN INVESTOR POST :

“A CHRISITAN VISION FOR SOCIAL JUSTICE “

by The New York Times

“Like a lot of people, I’ve tried to envision a way to promote social change that doesn’t involve destroying people’s careers over a bad tweet, that doesn’t reduce people to simplistic labels, that is more about a positive agenda to redistribute power to the marginalized than it is about simply blotting out the unworthy. I’m groping for a social justice movement, in other words, that would be anti-oppression and without the dehumanizing cruelty we’ve seen of late.”

“I tried to write a column describing what that might look like — and failed. It wasn’t clear in my head.”

THE NEW YORK TIMES, BROOKS HEADLINE SUBTITLE WHICH IS LEFT OFF AT FAITH DRIVEN INVESTOR “CHRISTIAN ECONOMIC FORUM POST.

NOTE- David Brooks has proven himself a rabid critic of Biblical Conservative Christians and is a close associate of “Shamer in Chief ” /defrocked “Baptist ethicist ” Russell Moore . Brooks most recent piece on evangelicals seeks to “Save Them From Themselves ” in a condescending rant .

SAMPLE OF BROOKS RECENT RANT SHOWS HE IS NO FRIEND OF CHRISTIAN CONSERVATIVES TO SPEAK FOR THEM

“Think of your 12 closest friends. These are the people you vacation with, talk about your problems with, do life with in the most intimate and meaningful ways. Now imagine if six of those people suddenly took a political or public position you found utterly vile. Now imagine learning that those six people think that your position is utterly vile. You would suddenly realize that the people you thought you knew best and cared about most had actually been total strangers all along. You would feel disoriented, disturbed, unmoored. Your life would change.”

“This is what has happened over the past six years to millions of American Christians, especially evangelicals. There have been three big issues that have profoundly divided them: the white evangelical embrace of Donald Trump, sex abuse scandals in evangelical churches and parachurch organizations, and attitudes about race relations, especially after the killing of George Floyd.”

NOW BACK TO THE NEW YORK TIMES PIECE BY BROOKS OF THE NEW VISION FOR CHRISTIAN SOCIAL JUSTICE INCLUDING THE SUBTITLE.

AGAIN WHY DID FAITH DRIVEN INVESTORS LEAVE IT OUT ?

OPINION

DAVID BROOKS

The Dissenters Trying to Save Evangelicalism From Itself

Faith Drivan Investors chose Brooks and New York Times along with quotes from a racial justice activist professor from Wheaton to communicate Faith Driven Investor collaborative with Christian Economic Foums vision of Social Justice . IT is totally articulated as wealth and power redistribution .

WANT TO “INVEST ” in wealth redistribution? Seems an oxymoron or a bad joke.

A Christian Vision of Social Justice

Social change can be pursued with mercy and hope.

March 18, 2021

Social Change is not the narrative to try and market to conservative believers you want to lure into “investing”.

DEFINITION OF SOCIAL CHANGE- IT IS NEITHER BY THE GOSPEL FOR THE GOSPEL OR TOWARD THE GOSPEL- “Sociologists define social change as changes in human interactions and relationships that transform cultural and social institutions. These changes occur over time and often have profound and long-term consequences for society.”

FROM BROOKS NYT ARTICLE

“But this week I interviewed Esau McCaulley (activist professor pictured) a New Testament professor at Wheaton College and a contributing writer for New York Times Opinion. He described a distinctly Christian vision of social justice I found riveting and a little strange (in a good way) and important for everybody to hear, Christian and non-Christian, believer and nonbeliever.”

LET US HEAR THE END GOAL OF THE NYT BRAND OF “CHRISTIAN SOCIAL JUSTICE ” THE CHRISTIAN ECONOMIC FORUM GUYS AT FAITH DRIVEN INVESTOR ARE TOUTING .

In Brooks on words.= REPARATIONS FOR RACISM- DISEMPOWERMENT -AGAIN AND AGAIN.

“The concept of sin gives us an action plan to struggle against it: acknowledge the sin, confess the sin, ask forgiveness for the sin, turn away from the sin, restore the wrong done. If racism is America’s collective sin then the tasks are: tell the truth about racism, turn away from racism, offer reparations for racism.”

“That is the ethic of self-emptying love — neither revile the reviler nor allow him to stay in his sin. The Christian approach to power is to tell those with power to give it up for the sake of those who lack.”

” It has to come with justice and change: “Why is Black forgiveness required again and again? Why is forgiveness heard but the demand for justice ignored?”

“When the church is at its best it opens up to the possibility of change, to begin again.”

“But, as McCaulley writes in his book “Reading While Black,” “the Old and New Testaments have a message of salvation, liberation and reconciliation.”

TIM KELLER ,DAVID PLATT & J D GREEAR ARE PITCHING THE FAITH DRIVEN INVESTOR TO INVESTORS AS KELLER TGC/THE GOSPEL COALITION NUANCES CONCERNS OVER THE “GREAT RESET”.

https://www.faithdriveninvestor.org/

Former Southern Baptist President J D Greear and influential Presbyterian Tim Keller yuk it up.

In March 2020 as concerns about “the Great Reset” began to creep into the mainstream- Tim Keller’s “GOSPEL COALITION rolled out an article to speak to those concerns .

Five Questions Christians Should ask about The ‘Great Reset’

03/12/2020  |  CHRIS WATKIN

WHO AUTHORED THE TGC ARTICLE?

AN AUSTRAILIAN WHOSE WORKS INCLUDES SETTING UP THE “SOCIAL CONTRACT ” FOR AUSTRAILIA .

“Chris Watkin grew up in Yorkshire and now lives in Melbourne with his wife and family. He is an Australian Research Council Future Fellow in the Arts Faculty at Monash University where he leads a research project into the contemporary social contract. In addition to publishing academic articles and books in French philosophy he seeks to bring philosophy and theology into conversation in volumes like Thinking Through Creation: Genesis 1 and 2 as Tools of Cultural Critique, and theological explorations of DerridaFoucault and Deleuze in the P&R ‘Great Thinkers’ series. He keeps a blog about theology, philosophy and culture at thinkingthroughthebible.com

“Social Contract Research Network”

“Addressing theoretical and practical questions related to the contemporary social contract to foster more resilient, freer and fairer societies.”

“The Social Contract Research Network (SCRN) is an interdisciplinary research hub located in the Faculty of Arts at Monash University in Melbourne, Australia.”

THE TGC ARTICLES CONCLUSION:

“in a few years’ time, the ‘Great Reset’ brand will most likely become a curiosity for the history books. But the questions of how to build a just, sustainable and digitally fair society for all people will not. So let’s play the long game and engage with those issues, nudging the public debate where possible towards a biblical understanding of what is at stake in rewriting the social contract.”

SOCIAL CONTRACT DEFINED -“Social contract theory says that people live together in society in accordance with an agreement that establishes moral and political rules of behavior. Some people believe that if we live according to a social contract, we can live morally by our own choice and not because a divine being requires it.”

CONCLUSION

World Economic Forum wants to accomplish the Global Sustainability Goals ” which include The Great Reset and Agenda 2030. It wants to use Global Warming/ aka Climate Change to apply continued pressure to the global economy it helped weaken with Covid 19 responses. These were undeniably planned out in October 2019 exercise called “Event 201 Pandemic EXERCISE” response protocols.

Working with BlackRock and the driving of secular investments toward “Global Justice ” and a new global “Social Contract” -the WEF does not have a “Faith Driven” set of goals nor are their stated goals akin to the Great Commission and yet WEF and the mirror image Christian Economic Forum are being merged by the Christian financial industry and major players in this “space” as they like to say. Impossible ? YES- Why?

Impossible because of two distinct ignored realities in the Faith Driven Investor narrative.

FIRST GREED and LUST and PRIDE drive globalist who hate GOD and Christians and would be MORE THAN GLAD to exploit God’s resources entrusted to HIS people if some willing partner were there to deliver them up.

SECOND THE GLOBALIST goals are not only godless but actual evil does exist and runs lockstep with the prevailing anti-Christ spirit of the age. Globalism filled with the rot of corruption and such corruption cannot inherit incorruption and flesh cannot inherit or for that matter help envision or construct God’s INCORRUPTABLE Kingdom on the earth or aid in God’s Kingdom Come.

AGAIN it appears that it would take a special kind of delusion or RECKLESS INGNORANCE- DARE WE SAY STUPIDITY – and biblical ignorance to even think these two worlds can merge.

PSALM 2

The Messiah’s Triumph and Kingdom

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,[d] 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.”

“I will declare the decree:
The Lord has said to Me,
‘You are My Son,
Today I have begotten You.
Ask of Me, and I will give You
The nations for Your inheritance,
And the ends of the earth for Your possession.
You shall break them with a rod of iron;
You shall dash them to pieces like a potter’s vessel.’ ”

10 Now therefore, be wise, O kings;
Be instructed, you judges of the earth.
11 Serve the Lord with fear,
And rejoice with trembling.
12 Kiss the Son, lest [j]He be angry,
And you perish in the way,
When His wrath is kindled but a little.
Blessed are all those who put their trust in Him

MATING THE GREAT COMMISSION WITH THE GREAT RESET ? KELLER,PLATT,GREEAR PUSH PERILOUS “FAITH DRIVEN” INVESTING WITH BLACKROCK /WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM.

JOURNALIST IN JUNE 2021 EXPOSED GLOBAL FINANCIAL FIRM BLACKROCK INC. FOR “TRANSFERING TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS INTO WOKE COMPANIES”. ALSO JUST AS WORLD ECONOMIC FORUM CAME UNDER SCRUTINY FOR “THE GREAT RESET” – EVANGELICAL LEADERS SIGNED ON WITH BOTH TO BE THE PITCHMEN FOR GLOBAL JUSTICE FINANCIAL SCHEME.

Rev Thomas Littleton

3/8/2022

In years past few have been willing to report on some shadowy business in the Christian financial industry as part of the so called “Generosity Movement”. Tim Keller, Lausanne Movement , National Christian Foundation Kingdom Advisors and a host of others have become key players in capturing Christian philanthropy on a global scale through “donor advised funds” and “planned giving ” strategies.

NOW most of the same players, along with some new trusted and well known Evangelical leaders are signing on to promote “Faith Driven Investors” as a form of asserting the kind of “socially responsible investing” of BlackRock and WEF with a “Value Added ” element attaching a Faith component for those who dare to see a Gospel dimension to “Global Goals” of “Sustainable Development” OF “AGENDA 2030” The Great Reset and Digital Currency are also in this toxic mix of goals .

SO HOW DO WE MATE THE GREAT COMMISSION WITH THE GREAT RESET?

Are you buying?

This simply looks like a way to siphon money straight off the “Faith Driven Investors” portfolio and into “global justice” initiatives while saying it is for the Gospel. If not then how can it be partners with World Economic Forum and BlackRock Inc who have no Gospel interest at all but overtly drive a global justice focus?

Here are some things to consider :

BLACKROCK INC.

F. William Engdahl reported in June 2021 that –

“BlackRock Set to Transfer Trillions in Wealth to ‘Woke’ Companies”

(NOTE: The Story includes the efforts of BlackRock in tandem with the World Economic Forum.)

“Author F. William Engdahl exposes BlackRock, which controls $9 trillion in assets, and its associates who hold key positions in the US government under the Biden administration, including the Director of the National Economic Council, the Deputy Treasury Secretary, and the Senior Economic Adviser to Vice President Kamala Harris. In March 2019, the New York Fed hired BlackRock to manage its $750 billion primary and secondary purchases of corporate bonds and ETFs in no-bid contracts. BlackRock funneled $75 billion in bailout funds to its own holdings as the Fed authorized it to ‘go direct’ in choosing winners and losers. The Fed even allowed BackRock to purchase the firm’s own ETFs for the Fed’s portfolio.”

“Engdahl says that  BlackRock is involved in the Great Reset and is poised to steer hundreds of billions and soon trillions in investment to their hand-picked “woke” companies, in the name of climate change, and away from the “not woke” such as oil and gas companies or coal.”

BLACKROCK AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT -CALLING FOR PUBLIC PRIVATE PARTNERS

(NOTE- THE PANDEMIC IS EVERYONES PERFECT CRISIS NOT TO GO TO WASTE) Is the pandemic an opportunity to reshape our cities by investing in smart infrastructure?

“By 2050 over two-thirds of human-life will exist in concentrated urban environments. Europe is ahead of the curve, with almost three quarters of the continental population living in sprawling cities. 

“But urban areas have borne the brunt of the Covid-19 pandemic, both economically and in terms of human life. New questions around how best to manage such a concentration of human life are unlikely to slow the march of urbanization, but they should frame progress. As we face these challenges, investors have an opportunity to put their capital to work in financing solutions.”

Smart city solutions

“As urbanization has intensified, cities have increasingly turned to technology to solve their problems and manage future growth. The concept of “smart cities” has gained ground, with developers implementing technology-enabled initiatives to promote greener, safer urban environments with more efficient public services.”

“An increasing number of investors, fund managers, leaders, and pastors who believe that God owns it all and that He cares deeply about how we steward His investments.”

Let’s unlock the other 90%.

“We spend almost 100% of the time talking about the 10% of our finances we give. Yes, giving is important. (So important that we are launching Faith Driven Giver soon!)”

“But, what if we could unlock the other 90% of our finances for a greater impact”

“Imagine if every believer used not just 10%, but 100% of their finances to:”

  • deliver community impact, spiritual integration, and financial return
  • take what God has given and put it back into the work He is doing on Earth
  • promote products and services that further human flourishing

“With revenues declining quickly and half of its finances going to real estate that is actually hindering its operations, the Church desperately needs to reduce its infrastructure cost and increase efficiency in its operations.”

Why not with a potential of $150 Trillion in wealth reported to be in the hands of Christians and the easy persuasion of a social justice Gospel Christians can be the easiest and the largest target for a Davos like movement to control economic power.

SWEET RIGHT?

CONCLUSION

With partners like BlackRock and World Economic Forum ,The Great Reset ,Global Goals like Sustainable Development ,Economic and Social Justice, Equitable Equity Investing , Generous Business for the Common Good , and a laundry list of solving societies ills and Dominionist and Generosity “theologies ” there seems little room for the simple -eternal -heart transforming Gospel to the Glory of God (revealed only) in the Face of Jesus Christ. Still never mind the overt hints of an anti-Christ kingdom or a rebuild of the Tower of Babylon – Keller, Platt, Greear, National Christian Foundation, Bob Doll, Lausanne, and other unwary (and possibly not at all otherworldly) leaders are glad to pitch the idea of Faith Driven Investors in the face of the global tyranny using the Pandemic as the trump card for a new world order called Agenda 2030.

“RECONSTRUCTING EVANGELICALISM “: DISGRACED BAPTIST ETHICIST RUSSELL MOORE TO CONFERENCE WITH FEMINIST JUSTICE WARRIORETTES .

SINCE BEING BOOTED FROM THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST ERLC RUSSELL MOORE HAS BEEN BINGE DRINKING FAR LEFT KOOL AID WITH DAVID AXELROD ,TIM KELLER AND (ALSO ) DISGRACED NIH FORMER DIRECTOR FRANCIS COLLINS. NOW HE JOINS THE LIKE MINDED FEMINIST HIS “LEAKED EMAILS” EMPOWERED TO SERVE UP HIS OWN DENOMINATION TO THE FEEDING FREZY OF METOO.

Rev Thomas Littleton

3/6/2022

Russell Moore is a political animal of the left who was, thanks to his mentor Albert Mohler, allowed to occupy several influential positions in the Southern Baptist Convention as a Change Agent for over 30 years. Now the Baptist “deconstructionist ” wants to help “Reconstruct Evangelicalism” with his feminist and left leaning social justice friends as part of the “Center for Pastor Theologians”.

VISION & MISSION


SEEKING THEOLOGICAL RENEWAL.
FOR THE VITALITY OF THE CHURCH.
FOR THE GOOD OF THE WORLD.


MISSION

“The Center for Pastor Theologians exists to equip pastors to be theologians for today’s complex world.”

VISION

“Our vision is a renaissance and revitalization of the church in the 21st century. The Church in North America is facing unique challenges and complex cultural pressures. Are we ready and equipped to face these challenges with faithfulness, grace, and love?”

“The church needs a renewed vision for her life and ministry in the world. She must be rooted in the historic gospel of grace, empowered by the Spirit of God, filled with love and humility.”

https://www.cptconference.com/

“The term deconstruction has become something of a buzz word among many Christians and former-Christians. The deconstruction ongoing in the church and culture has included evangelical theology, approaches to politics, public witness, human sexuality, gender, biblical interpretation, and racial injustice. Some of this deconstruction may be necessary, even if difficult and painful. People who truly hunger and thirst for righteousness must be willing to face hard realities, even in our own tradition.”

“This raises the question: is there a future for evangelical faith in America? What will it look like? What should it look like?”

“As people of the resurrection, we must also engage in the redemptive work of re-constructing, healing, and rehabilitating the church. This is why we have chosen Reconstructing Evangelicalism as the theme for the 2022 annual theology conference of Center for Pastor Theologians. This event will be a gathering of men and women––pastors, theologians, scholars, and ministry leaders––from across the diverse spectrum of evangelical confession. Together, we will seek to discern and commend theological distinctives and strengths of the evangelical movement. These theological strengths must be disentangled from the sinful racial, sexual, social, and political structures that have been exposed in recent years. In doing so, we will ask how––and even if––evangelicalism can be reconstructed.”

“This is a hard but necessary work.”

THE CHURCH HAS A MAJOR FOCUS ON RACIAL JUSTICE

(FOCUS INCLUDES RACE RADICAL JEMAR TISBY’S BOOKS)

From the host church website:

“The history of race in the United States has been both tragic and complex. But how has the church in America addressed, conceived of, and organized itself in light of the cultural conception of race? How can learning about our past help us change our present and our future?”

Russell Moore has been attempting to deconstruct conservative evangelicalism for decades. It was he who said conservative American Christians had fought a “culture war” and “lost “- “hurt the Gospel” – and needed to make nice – “BE WINSOME” – and “love our gay and lesbian neighbors” ( as if to presume that resistance to Planned Parenthood radical sexual agenda for children called CSI was hatred) . It was his ERLC who ran forward to the front of the “story” when the Houston Chronicle broke the headline about the SBC having a long history of covering up sex abuse even though the mosaic of abusers in the Houston Chronicle cover story photos were actually of mug shots from those abusers who were caught and arrested.

Moore’s “winsomeness” in spewing hatred and accusations against then candidate Donald J.Trump and his supporters among evangelicals landed him in a Trump tweet where he was referred to as “a nasty guy with no heart”.

THE RECENT “LEAKED EMAILS” OF RUSSELL MOORE CONFIRM THAT TRUMP’S TWEET WAS NOT OFF THE MARK AT ALL.

Moore allowed someone to publish his emails filled with nasty accusations against the Baptist Executive Committee and make their way to the press. The “Abuse scandal ” was back on, a NEW INVESTIGATION and TASK Force launched, and is still boiling in the press to today.

A quote from the emails:

“You and I both heard, in closed door meetings, sexual abuse survivors spoken of in terms of ‘Potiphar’s wife’ and other spurious biblical analogies,” Moore wrote to Greear. “The conversations in these closed door meetings were far worse than anything Southern Baptists knew — or the outside world could report.”

MOORE AND HIS CHRISTIANITY BOSSES READY TO “RETHINK BIBLICAL WOMANHOOD “

Just in time to prove there is a larger movement afoot with Moore and his companions in intersectional activism -comes a conference by Christianity Today promising another big “Reconstruction ” project- this one on “Biblical Womanhood ” after the ChurchToo movement and friends like Moore have helped deconstruct Biblical family and manhood.

A candid conversation on the obstacles and opportunities facing women leaders in the church.

“From patriarchal interpretations of Scripture to contemporary incidents of #ChurchToo abuse, Christian women often are treated as second-class citizens in the church. Yet throughout history it has been their tireless contributions that have kept Christianity vital and active in society. The whole church suffers when women’s voices are silenced. And both men and women miss out when women are unable to fully develop and exercise their gifts in the church.  ”  

“Join scholars and ministry leaders Kat Armas, Beth Allison Barr, Amanda Benckhuysen, Nicole Martin, and Joyce Koo Dalrymple for a lively discussion on women’s roles in the church from the perspectives of history, theology, and practical ministry.”

CONCLUSION

THE “WINSOME DEVIL “

Moore’s winsomeness has its limits when it comes to SBC Executives who fired him or to the Oval Office where he has winsomely spent a lot of time with his pals like Tim Keller during the Obama years. He was not invited to the Trump administration White House but he did get some attitude adjustment by his Baptist bosses which didn’t last long .

By the time he was out at the Baptist ERLC Moore joined Obama former Chief Advisor David Axelrod in the Institute for Politics at the University of Chicago . His first guest while serving as a Fellow /teacher was old TGC friend Tim Keller, both of whom make no bones about their hatred of Christian support for those who are politically conservative. Why – because BOTH have a long history as Democrats and close ties to many others from the Obama Chicago political machine like Michael Wear.

So now Russell Moore surfaces with some feminist , some justice warriorettes, some activist in the CRT /racial realm , NAE pal Walter Kim (too many compromises to list) and the “Center for Pastor Theologians ” to “RECONSTRUCT EVANGELICALISM”. What a surprise right?

So Guys it’s is really not about the Gospel at all…is it? It is just politics. Please just quit saying it is when we all know it is NOT “a Gospel issue.

CRT -NOT THE ONLY POISON ON CHRISTIAN UNIVERSITY CAMPUSES AS YARHOUSE/APA INVADE.

THE BRAINTRUST BEHIND THE AMERICAN PSYCHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATIONS INTERFAITH INVASION OF CHRISTIANITY RELATED TO LGBTQ+ / SEXUAL ORIENTATION, GENDER IDENTITY HAS FLOODED CHRISTIAN CAMPUSES VIA TWO RESEARCH PROJECTS.

Rev.Thomas Littleton

3/4/2022

By the time it became clear that Mark Yarhouse interfaith work with the American Psychological Association and it’s “Division 36- Psychology of Religion and Spirituality: had saturated some of the most conservative Christian universities and seminaries in North America – the fruit of it like Revoice Conference and Rethink Apologetics revealed the decay of Biblically grounded institutions had already BEGUN and BIBLICAL TRUTH been eroded beyond recovery.

MARK YARHOUSE, THE CCCU AND THE GOSPEL COALITION

The major shift away from Biblical grounding on human sexuality and God given , created “birth gender ” reality began years ago in mainline movements but manifest in earnest in 2010 among conservative ,especially Reformed theological institutions. It was this same year that Mark Yarhouse drafted a WHITEPAPER for D. A.Carson and The Gospel Coalition for its “Christ on Campus ” initiative. With this move came the full APA synchronization with the influential TGC organization on the Campus of TEDS seminary along with the Institute For Transformational Churches/ the Oikonomia Network /Kern Family Foundation funding /Acton Institute curriculum all promoting the new social justice gospel and victim coalition with accompanying critical theories -the total transformation of Christian institutions of higher learning was under way.

The Council of Christian Colleges and Universities soon signed on to the culture change efforts and brought Mark Yarhouse on as a Senior Fellow.

YARHOUSE BIO

“The foundational research that shapes SGI today began in 1998 when Dr. Yarhouse began conducting research at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia. That research lab formally became an institute (referred to as the Institute for the Study of Sexual Identity) in 2004. That institute was renamed when it transitioned to Wheaton College in 2019 (The Sexual & Gender Identity Institute or SGI).”

Mark A. Yarhouse, Psy.D.

Mark A. Yarhouse, Psy.D., is  the Dr. Arthur P. and Mrs. Jean May Rech Chair in Psychology at Wheaton College.  Dr. Yarhouse has spent several years promoting dialogue between people who view the topic of sexual identity differently. In 2000, he chaired a groundbreaking symposium at the American Psychological Association’s annual convention that brought together gay psychologists and Christian psychologists to discuss common ground in treatment options for those who experience sexual and religious identity conflicts. He chaired similar dialogues at the APA on the many meanings of marriage (among different religions and among various groups within the gay community), services for adolescents experiencing sexual identity concerns, and an approach to services referred to as the sexual identity therapy.”

( NOTE the CCCU and TGC History )

“Dr. Yarhouse is the past recipient of the Gary R. Collins Award for Excellence in Christian Counseling (American Association of Christian Counselors) and the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence at Regent University. He was a past participant with the Ethics and Public Policy Center think tank in Washington, DC, and he was named Senior Fellow with the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities to conduct a study of students navigating sexual identity concerns at Christian colleges and universities. He has been a consultant to the National Institute of Corrections to address issues facing sexual minorities in corrections, and he was part of a consensus panel from the American Psychological Association on sexual orientation and gender identity change efforts that convened to provide input to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) in Washington, DC. Dr. Yarhouse is currently the Chair of the task force on LGBT issues for Division 36 (Psychology of Religion and Spirituality) of the American Psychological Association. He was also invited to write the featured white paper on sexual identity for the Christ on Campus Initiative edited by Don A. Carson for The Gospel Coalition.”

“Dr. Yarhouse has published over 80 peer-reviewed journal articles and book chapters and is author or co-author of several books, including Understanding Sexual Identity: A Resource for Youth Ministers and Understanding Gender Dysphoria: Navigating Transgender Issues in a Changing Culture. His most recent book is Costly Obedience: Listening to and Learning from Celibate Gay Christians.”

REVOICE CONTROVERSY AND YARHOUSE

Lest we forget Yarhouse promoted Revoice and worked along side multiple of its founders before briefly joining Revoice as a speaker and Board member in 2019.

https://web.archive.org/web/20200721205314/https://revoice.us/events/revoice19/revoice19-speakers/mark-yarhouse/

Multiple overlapping collaborations and partnerships remain with Mark Yarhouse and other Revoice leaders like Preston Sprinkle to this day.

CHRISTIAN CAMPUS INVASION VIA “RESEARCH PROJECTS

Institute for the Study of Sexual Identity-

“Christian Sexual Identity Project and the Christian Gender Identity Project”

AGAIN NOTE: Yarhouse was “named Senior Fellow with the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities to conduct a study of students navigating sexual identity concerns at Christian colleges and universities.”

CCCU has promoted the radical Paul Singer (LGBTQ funder) “Fairness for All” which is a temporary legislative option to the sweeping Equality Act. The Equality Act will basically vilify any opposition to the most radical LGBTQ Comprehensive Sexuality Education of Planned Parenthood and SIECUS as well as ban any kind of ex gay counseling and even some preaching as “hate speech”. No Religious exemptions exist in the Equality Act but some temporary ones are allowed in the Fairness For All bill put forth by Mormon legislators. These religious exemptions are considered to be “license to discriminate” and will not be allowed to stand for long as they are a primary target for HRC and other LGBTQ lobby groups. Hence they are understood to only be temporary refuge and will be removed in further legislative actions.

CCCU looks to have taken the bait that it can secure these exemptions but BOTH Fairness for All and the Equality Act are funded by radical money of Paul Singer.

Singers organizations may in fact be funding the CCCU /Yarhouse “Studies”.

HOW SOCIAL CHANGE WORKS -SELLING ONE NEW WORD OR PHRASE AT A TIME

NOTE THE LABLES IN THE YARHOUSE STUDIES

And the stated goal- “The Christian Gender Identity Project, which is a study of students navigating gender identity and faith on Christian college campuses. (Yarhouse associates ) spearheaded the quantitative analyses for both projects.”

Listening to Transgender and Gender Diverse Students on Christian College Campuses

  • September 2021

“This study was an initial investigation of important areas of interest in the literature on transgender and gender diverse students: psychological health and well-being and campus climate for transgender and gender diverse students in young adulthood. What is unique is that data were obtained from Christian transgender and gender diverse students attending Christian college and universities. A sample of 31 undergraduate transgender students at nine Christian institutions in which staff were affiliated with the Association for Christians in Student Development completed an online survey. Participants reported high levels of religiosity, diversity in their attitudes about gender identity, negative perceptions of campus climate, lower levels of social support for gender identity than in general, moderate to high levels of psychological distress, and low to moderate levels of psychological well-being.”

PRIMARY CONCERN IS THE “STRESSES FOR LGBTQ STUDENTS ON CHRISTIAN CAMPUSES “AND THE IMPACT ON THEM-WITH NO CONCERN FOR THE IMPACT OF THE LGBTQ AGENDA ON OTHER CHRISTIANS OR CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN INSTITUTIONS

Costly Obedience

with Mark Yarhouse

Sean McDowellScott Rae — October 15, 2020

(NOTE – THE TITLE OF YARHOUSE BOOK “COSTLY OBEDIENCE” IS ALSO PART OF THE ACTIVIST NARRATIVE FOR SOCIAL CHANGE PORTRAYING “CELIBATE GAY CHRISTIANS” AS SPECIAL CROSS BEARERS AND SUBJECTING THEMSELVES TO A “MORE COSLTY ” DISCIPLESHIP THAN HETEROSEXUALS.)

Sean McDowell at Biola University is part of the Apologetics Department on campus and works with Stand To Reason which launched Rethink Apologetics which included a Revoice like narrative LGBTQ based on unchanging “sexual orientation ” by 2015.This was after in 2012 and underground activist group on campus at Biola went public and began making press releases and filing lawsuits for full inclusion. These years of activism resulted in the University making efforts at appeasing the LGBTQ which included Sean MsDowell and other leaders in the Apologetics department meeting with activist Matthew Vines in a “private ” sit down that just happened to result in a NY Times feature complete with photos .

“Evangelicals Open Door to Debate on Gay Rights.”

Matthew Vines, center, a gay Christian activist, met with influential evangelicals including Frank Sontag, left, last month at Biola University in La Mirada, Calif.Credit…Monica Almeida/The New York Times

BIOLA UNIVERSITIES RAPID DESCENT INTO AFFIRMING “GAY CHRISTIANITY”

Sean McDowell seemed prepared to stand against the activist narrative in 2015 but by 2016 was preaching the Yarhouse Rethink version of SOGI.

From the 2015 NYT article

June 8 2015

“LA MIRADA, Calif. — As a young, gay Christian activist, Matthew Vines considered it a victory just to get into a room at a conservative Christian university here with four influential evangelicals who disagreed with him over what the Bible says about homosexuality.”

“He ended up in a polite, heartfelt three-hour debate last month over Scripture passages about topics like celibacy, eunuchs, slavery — and the connections between sex and marriage.”

“Every single system you have within your body — whether it’s your respiratory system, your excretory system, your muscular system — can be completed as an individual,” said Sean McDowell, a professor here at Biola University and a well-known Christian author and speaker. “But there’s only one system in which male and female have half and become a united whole, and that’s in reproduction.”

BIOLA HAS NO OBJECTION TO YARHOUSE FULL NARRATIVE BY 2020

NOTE : THE INTERVIEW PROMOTES THE APA CONCEPT OF “GAY CHRISTIAN AND GENDER DIVERGENT CHRISTIAN AS IF THESE ARE BIBLICAL,NORMAL ,HEALTHY AND SCIENTIFICLY AUTHENTIC.

EVEN IN THE CONTEXT OF AFFIRMING VS NON AFFIRMING “CONVERSATION” AS SEAN MCDOWELL ATTEMPTS TO FRAME THE BIOLA YARHOUSE INTERVIEW- THE NEW NORMAL FROM APA FOR CHRISTIAN “ACCEPTANCE” COMES THROUGH.

NOT A SINGLE VERSE OF THE WORD OF GOD IS REFERENCED OR DISCUSSED AT ALL.

FROM THE “COSTLY OBEDIENCE” INTERVIEW

“Gay men and women who desire to be faithful to Scripture and thus choose a life of celibacy have chosen a difficult path and have much to teach the church. Psychologist Mark Yarhouse led a study of these men and women and some fascinating conclusions emerged from this study. Join Sean and Scott as they interview Dr. Yarhouse, on his new book, Costly Obedience: What We Can Learn from the Celibate Gay Christian Community.”

More About Our Guest

He is chair of the task force on LGBT+ issues for Division 36 (Psychology of Religion and Spirituality) of the American Psychological Association. He is the author of numerous books on LGBT issues and Christian faith.”

Episode Transcript

Scott Rae: Welcome to the podcast Think Biblically, conversations on faith and culture. I’m your host, Scott Rae, Dean of Faculty and Professor of Christian Ethics at Talbot School of Theology here at Biola University.

Sean McDowell: And I’m your cohost Sean McDowell, Professor of Apologetics at Talbot school of Theology, Biola University.

Scott Rae: We’re here with our special guest today, Dr. Mark Yarhouse, who holds an endowed chair in psychology at Wheaton College, served for several years in an endowed chair at Regent University. He also has the Center for Sexuality and Gender at Wheaton, speaks and writes widely in areas related to sexuality and gender identity and Mark and his colleague… And Mark, I’m going to let you pronounce the name of your colleague so I don’t butcher her name.

Mark Yarhouse: Yes, it’s Dr. Ola Zuporzits.

Scott Rae: Their new book is based on a study of the gay Christian community entitled Costly Obedience and advertised as the most comprehensive study to date of this particular community. Mark, we’re so glad you’ve written this book and engaged in this study, and I’m really anxious to hear about some of the findings that you’ve written about. Some of the findings that the study has made manifest.

So thanks so much for being with us. We look forward to this conversation.

Mark Yarhouse: Yeah. Thank you for just inviting me and giving me a chance to talk a little bit about, I think, what’s a really important topic and a challenging one in the church today.

Scott Rae: So maybe we’ll start with this. How would you describe the change in the way the church has addressed LGBT men and women in the last, say the last 30, 40 years?

Mark Yarhouse: Yeah, so I think the change, I think one of the greatest shifts, has probably been around the ex gay storyline. So the idea of people moving from gay to straight, that was a much more prominent narrative for a long time, I think, in evangelical circles. And it began to diminish several years ago with a number of different factors. Culturally, of course you have the rise of the mainstream LGBTQ community, and you have people within Christian ministries who didn’t experience as much of the change that they had hoped for, that they thought was possible.

And that’s not to say that others didn’t report different experiences than that, but there were more people saying that they didn’t experience that or that they said that they did, and didn’t really. And you also had… So there would be gay individuals, there would be ex gay individuals and there would be ex, ex gay individuals saying that, what I said back then wasn’t sustained. Or it wasn’t what I thought it was. And you also had, then, a group of people who never really went down that path, but because they were more conservative Christians, they went down a path of celibacy and they also didn’t feel like the change narrative, the ex gay narrative was a good fit for them because of the assumptions, sort of within that narrative, about how people become homosexual and what it means to change and some of those debates that were going on.

So there were many different voices, I think, that perhaps led to a diminished ex gay narrative. And then you have, in a sense, a rise of voices that are saying, “We’re celibate, we’re also gay and we’re also people of faith.” And so that’s really, this book is kind of their story in some ways.

Sean McDowell: One of the things that I appreciate about Costly Obedience is that it’s not just reflection and experience, while that has its place. It’s based upon a study. Can you tell us about the nature of the study and maybe some of the 30,000 foot view, big findings that emerged from it?

Mark Yarhouse: Yes. The book Costly Obedience actually has several studies woven throughout it, but the major study is a study of 300 celibate gay Christians who shared their experiences with us. And that group can be broken down into people who are celibate from all relationships and they don’t anticipate entering into a relationship. They see themselves, maybe what I thought of as what celibacy is. And then there was a group of people who were celibate but they said they were open to a relationship with someone of the opposite sex. So that was kind of an interesting thing I hadn’t thought about.

And then there was a group of people who were in a mixed orientation marriage, by which, I mean, if the one person’s orientation is gay or homosexual, the other person in the marriage, their orientation is heterosexual. And so they saw themselves as celibate because they were refraining from same-sex behavior and relationships, but they were in a relationship with a person of the opposite sex.

So we decided, at that moment, as researchers, we would listen to the people who were completing the survey and what they were telling us celibacy meant to them, even though I had my own understanding of what that was going into the study. And so we reported data on all of their experiences, broke it down. You asked, what are some of the major findings? I should say too, that the other studies that are kind of in this book would be a study where we did more interviews with a smaller number of celibate gay Christians. We also did interviews with a group of friends who function as family to celibate gay Christians. Some of them actually live together or live in close proximity to each other. We thought that was kind of a fascinating angle of entry into the conversation.

And then we had another study that was of seminary graduates from Protestant, mostly evangelical seminaries, where we were asking them about their experiences with people who are gay as well. So biggest, biggest surprise to me had to be the mental health issues because the prevailing view is that people who walk out a path of celibacy must be deeply depressed, deeply anxious, just in a really difficult position. And that’s kind of how I thought about it. That’s kind of many of the people that I know who were walking this out, will talk about some of the unique challenges that they face. And so we reported the data and we found that people, in a sense, weren’t as bad off as we thought they were on normed measures of distress and anxiety and depression. Many of them were doing as good as other people in the norm sample.

Now that doesn’t mean don’t take away at all from people who are struggling, but that was a surprise. We also had an interesting measure of attachment and attachment sort of the way that a young child attaches to the primary caregivers around them. And then as an adult, they have relationships that might activate a way of sort of relating to people around them. It’s called an adult attachment style that can get activated. And this group of folks, their highest percentage was in a kind of preoccupied attachment style, which means they really want relationships, but they’re anxious about losing them, which makes sense if somebody is walking out a life of celibacy and they’re not in a marriage relationship, and they’re wondering about what that life’s going to look like, how their emotional needs and needs for intimacy will be met, they cannot afford to be cavalier about friendships and relationships. So it’s going to occupy a bit of bandwidth for them, and they’re going to be more anxious about the possibility of losing them.

Now, I don’t want to make too much of that. The very next highest percentage was a secure attachment style where they also are invested and care about relationships. And they’re low on anxiety about that. But I would say those were probably two of the most interesting findings that we had that I think could help the church respond in ways that are loving and supportive of these brothers and sisters in Christ.

Sean McDowell: Mark, I want to make sure you can really unpack this finding because it surprised me too. I’ve been in so many conversations with affirming and non affirming positions on this. And like you say, the prevailing assumption is that an exposure to non affirming theology itself is what causes sexual minorities to suffer mental health. And what you found is that that’s just not where the evidence points. So can you really highlight why that’s so important and maybe kind of the bigger dynamic that’s going on with that claim?”

SOME TOPICS AND EXCERPTS FROM THE YARHOUSE CAMPUSES STUDIES

INTERSECTION OF RELIGION AND GENDER IDENTITY

“Intersection of Religion and Gender Identity Despite these potential points of conflict, many LGBTQ + persons identify (or at one point identified) as religious (Marin, 2016 ). The Report of the 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey asked nearly 28,000 respondents about their experiences with religious communities (e.g., churches, synagogues, mosques, and so on) at some point in their lives, and 66% of respondents indicated lifetime rates of involvement with a religious faith community (James et al., 2016 ). Fear of rejection led 39% of respondents who had been part of a faith community to leave that faith community, and 19% of the sample who had been part of a religious faith community at one point left that community because of their experience of actual rejection. Transgender persons of color reported rejection by their religious faith communities at
higher rates, particularly those who identified as American Indian, Black, and Middle Eastern. Of those who had experienced rejection, fewer than half (42%) ended up in a more supportive religious community.”

PSYCHOLOGICAL HEALTH AND WELL BEING OF TRANSGENDERED STUDENTS

“Psychological Health and Well-Being of Transgender Students Transgender and gender diverse persons appear to be at greater risk than cisgender persons for psychological health disparities and threats to their well-being (e.g., Messman & Leslie, 2019; Oswalt & Lederer, 2017 ). This is often understood with reference to minority stress theory (Perez-Brumer et al., 2017 ). Recent research (Puckett et al., 2019 ) suggests that family social support can foster resilience among transgender persons, which may function as a protective factor to some degree. Regarding potential mental health disparities among college students, Oswalt and Lederer (2017 ) found that 33.4% of transgender students reported symptoms of anxiety, 34.3% depression, and 16.5% panic attacks, among other mental health concerns, and that all of the mental health concerns were reported at significantly higher rates than what was reported by cisgender students. Messman and Leslie (2019) similarly found that transgender students reported more mental health diagnoses, trauma, and suicidality than their cisgender peers. Transgender students also experienced more violence and tended to report higher rates of negative coping behaviors, such as substance use (including nonprescription and illicit drug use) and binge drinking.”

CAMPUS CLIMATE WITH SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON CHRISTIAN CAMPUSES

“Recent research on the experiences of sexual minority students at Christian colleges and universities suggested that they perceived campuses as difficult settings for those navigating questions of sexual identity and religious identity (Author). Post hoc analyses suggested that diverse experiences of gender identity may be related to greater psychological distress”

Campus Climate
Thompson et al. (2019) reported that transgender and gender diverse students had less favorable perceptions of campus climate and experienced more behaviors classified as discriminatory than did students who did not identify as transgender. Transgender students of color were also significantly more likely than cisgender students of color to perceive harassment”

“The Present Investigation”
“The current study is a cross-sectional survey of transgender and gender diverse students who attend Christian colleges or universities in the United States. We investigated the experiences of transgender and gender diverse students in terms of their gender and sexual identity, faith, campus climate experience, perceptions of resources, attitudes and values associated with gender identity, and psychological distress and well-being. Responses were analysed primarily with descriptive and correlational statistics, highlighting some group and within participants differences where possible.”

CONCLUSION

THESE STUDIES SERVE AS GREAT TOOLS ENCOURAGING NORMALIZATION OF THE LGBTQ LANGUAGE, IDENTITIES , AND RIGHTS AMONG CHRISTIAN STUDENTS ON CHRISTIAN CAMPUSES.

THE YARHOUSE STUDIES PROMOTE CONVERSATIONS ON CHRISTIANS CAMPUSES AND OWN THE GOAL OF “MOVING THEM FORWARD FOR TEACHERS, ADMINISTRATORS, AND TRUSTEES IN OUR CHRISTIAN SCHOOLS …FOR THE GLORY OF GOD AND THE BENEFIT OF GODS BELOVED LGBT+ CHILDREN.”

FROM COSTLY OBEDIENCE SEXUAL MINORITIES AND VICTIMS TO SPECIAL BELOVED STATUS

Confirmation -FROM YARHOUSE INSTITUTE RESEARCHER Julia Smith’s paper

Sexual and Gender Identity Questions in Christian Schools: A Broader Approach

Julia Smith, Calvin College. June 6, 2019

“The sex/gender domain is replete with opportunities for Christian educators to promote student safety, success, and flourishing in challenging times. The work requires sensitivity, patience, energy, compassion, and courage as we seek to live honestly with tensions that are unlikely to resolve in the foreseeable future. But it is dignifying, life-affirming, and potentially life-saving work that flows from love of God and neighbor and from the core virtue commitments of the Christian faith. My prayer is that the broader approach discussed in this paper will help move the conversation forward for teachers, administrators, and trustees in our Christian schools for the glory of God and the benefit of Gods beloved LGBT+ children.”

THE MISSING LINK TO REAL DISCIPLESHIP

THE ONE GLARING THING ABOUT YARHOUSE, HIS INSTITUTE, THE CCCU, THE BIOLA CONSTLY OBEDIENCE INTERVIEW AND THE CAMPUS RESEARCH IS THE WORD OF GOD.

THE ONE THING THAT SHOULD BE TAUGHT AND OBEYED AND PROMOTED ON CHRISTIAN CAMPUSES IS THE WORD ….NOT APA STANDARDS OR CRITICAL THEORIES BUT ALAS THIS IS THE NEW “NORMAL” FOR CHRISTIAN HIGHER EDUCATION.

DO NOT SEND YOUR CHILDREN TO THESE INSTITUTIONS PLEASE.

GIVE THEM THE LIVING WORD OF THE LIVING GOD.

2 TIMOTHY 3:

The Man of God and the Word of God

10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance, 11 persecutions, afflictions, which happened to me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra—what persecutions I endured. And out of them all the Lord delivered me. 12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.

16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for [c]instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.”

IS AMERICAN FAMILY ASSOCIATION BRINGING “LEAVEN OF REVOICE” TO GOD’S VOICE CONFERENCE?

AFA ,GODS VOICE CONFERENCE AND “THE LEAVEN OF REVOICE” EXAMINED

Rev Thomas Littleton

3/1/2022

(NOTE: this writer broke/fully exposed the Revoice  “LGBT+ THRIVING in Historic (conservative) Churches in April 2018. The reality of its origins DEEP inside both the Southern Baptist flagship Seminary SBTS and Presbyterian Church in
America /PCA/ seminary CTS were undeniable. Revoice founder Nate Collins was teaching New Testament at and had spent almost 15 years getting two degrees and employed as both an SBTS staff and active “gay indentified” activist. His book “All But Invisible”, his doctorate asserting that the use of the word “virgin ” was “proof of a third gender ” in the New Testament and the planning of Revoice in the Fall of 2017 were all done at SBTS. The inagural event was held in St Louis MO in a PCA church which house offices of a “partner ministry to Revoice with many staff and students at CTS involved and overlapping in Revoice founding. A CTS professor and his radical daughter hosted the “pre conference meetings for Revoice at another PCA church …all in the Summer 2018. Many other documented ties to both the conservative SBC and The Presbyterian Church in America have been verified and presented here.

God’s Voice Conference arose as part of this writers ongoing work to fully expose the origins of Revoice DEEP inside two of the most conservative denominations in America both of which have deep ties to and leadership in The Gospel Coalition.

THIS lengthy article documents those origins and how the God’s Voice Conference founded to “refute and expose Revoice”. is now lost in the minutia of those trying to provide cover for it or who like AFA ,seem to fail miserably in understanding the complicit invasion and alliance and support from deep inside the SBC/ SBTS and PCA/ CTS which actually exist.

This is not an attack on anyone or organization but a SAD reminder that indeed a “little leaven ” does leaven the entire LUMP. And with God’s Voice partnering with and promoting AFAs film and work, something God’s Voice Steering Committee totally denied in June 2020, the leaven appears to be spreading throughout much of the “opposition” to Revoice. Meanwhile the movement continues to “Thrive ” and become more and more radical even as it has split the PCA once and will again and has gone into hiding under the cover of the Evangelical Deep State in the Southern Baptist. Sad realities. Just examine and take the documentation for itself.

The truth is worth providing for the multitudes of people who really want the truth though it has meant bearing the brunt of all kinds of slander, accusations and false deflection efforts that the previous exposure has brought and which will doubtless come in response to documenting these further developments. Still these documents prove the total contradiction of God’s Voice Steering Committee’s own statements and purpose for it’s founding which this writer and his family played a key role in the development and FUNDING of God’s Voice.

Also , late to the issue by several YEARS and confused by their own failure to research their speakers ties to Revoice and to The Gospel Coalition, Mark Yarhouse and the false Catholic LGBTQ inclusion narrative of “Imago Dei Movement in 2014 “- AFA representatives refused to reexamine ANY of their own documented infiltration of the leaven of Revoice. The TRUTH is still what matters and is always the most powerful thing in the room.)

IN 2018 THE GOPSEL COALITION’S LEADING ROLE IN REVOICE AND THE MLK/50 CONFERENCES EXPLODED THE “LGBTQ  CHRISTIANITY” & SOCIAL JUSTICE DECEPTIONS AMONG EVANGELICAL DENOMINATIONS AND CHURCHES. CONSERVATIVE BELIEVERS BEGAN THE LONG ROAD OF DISCOVERY AND EXPOSURE OF MANY OF THEIR OWN TRUSTED LEADERS. 

AMERICAN FAMILY ASSOCIATION WAS OFTEN M.I.A. BUT NOW SEEKS TO LEAD THE WAY WITH CONTINUED PROMOTION OF A FILM TAINTED WITH THE LEAVEN OF REVOICE AND MARK YARHOUSE SPEAKERS AND NOW SEEKS TO OWN THE “GOD’S VOICE CONFERENCE WHICH BEGAN AS A REFUTIATION OF REVOICE. HOW CAN ORGANIZATIONS INCLUDE THE LEAVEN  OF THE VERY ERROR THEY ARE SEEKING TO EXPOSE?

AFA’S FILM “IN HIS IMAGE” AND THE MULTITUDE OF TGC/REVOICE/RETHINK AND MARK YARHOUSE SPEAKERS.

AMERICAN FAMILY ASSOCIATION AND GOD’S VOICE LEADER “REVOICED” ON LGBTQ?

EXCERPT FROM JUNE 7TH 2020 ARTICLE ON WERE AFA AND GOD’S VOICE BEING “REVOICED”?

(NOTE: This author helped inspire, found and fund, as well as served as a keynote speaker for the God’s Voice Conference in 2019 which was very helpful in fully exposing Revoice and its deeper roots inside two denominational seminaries – SBTS of the Southern Baptist and CTS of the Presbyterian Church in America. By 2020 God’s Voice Conference was all but abandoned and this authors efforts to expand its reach to other regions were met with a take over of the movement countering Revoice and the soon affiliation of Gods Voice leaders with the AFA film “In His Image “ which featured many TGC and Revoice/ Yarhouse allied representatives. This examination and the previous article of June 2020 quoted and linked in this article are to help confused believers observing these undeniable ties to Revoice and The Gospel Coalition and other Yarhouse affiliated efforts like  Ryan T Anderson , Josh McDowell , Biola and Stand To Reason Apologetics Rethink (on LGBTQ ) . The one reality which this author agrees with AFA and it’s film Director MD Perkins is a that “ a little leaven leavens the entire lump”. Galatians 5:9 .So why are God’s Voice Conference and AFA/ AFA Studios film project allowing in the leaven of Revoice and Mark Yarhouse? Good question and one that deserves answering.)

AFA AND GODS VOICE ALLIANCE AND NEW YARHOUSE and GOSPEL COALITION (TGC) PARTNERS.

The sudden alliance of AFA and God’s Voice Conference  (GVC) appeared in March 2020 as GVC promoted AFA new Film “In His Image ” and AFA began promoting GVC.

(NOTE : This writers work exposed Revoice in 2018 by breaking the story in early May. I worked with many groups and media outlets in helping make this important issue THE front line story and concern for 18 months. It was the suggestion of this writer to put together a conference to address the issues related to Revoice for the church. I believed an effort was needed to offer the true transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to hurting people wanting out of LGBTQ and their families and to bolster the church ability to discern and debunk the false gospel of Revoice and Yarhouse. As a result of these efforts GVC was supported by this writer who helped in the leadership team, organize, support, fund and spoke at it’s early 2019 event.

Yarhouse / TGC / CTS / Tim Keller/Albert Mohler/ SBTS  ties to Revoice were exposed  at GVC. Some wonderful testimonies were shared like the mother daughter team of Francine and Laura Perry . YET meanwhile a key member of the GVC Team QUIT immediately after GVC 2019 while Revoice 2019 came more out of the Yarhouse closet with Yarhouse speaking and openly becoming a leader in the Revoice organization for a time. But by that time media coverage of Revoice was being impacted by forces within TGC and beyond. As interest in opposition to Yarhouse and Revoice and God’s Voice Conference efforts continued, this author remained in leadership on the GVC Team. I reached out to remaining leaders including Stephen Black to answer that interest with a 2020 conference possibly to be held in the South. The ongoing efforts to bring about a follow up GVC went without response for many weeks until they were finally met with the sudden and “irreversible removal ” of this author from the GVC leadership Team and the planning of the 2020 event was then going forward. Months later AFA began promoting GVC new event focused on “LGBTQ Tyrany”. Long story- perhaps for another time . Suffice to say some things and powers  were moving in the background and something had CHANGED.-  DRASTICALLY CHANGED  at GVC, Now perhaps we can see some of what caused this change in the wedding of Yarhouse and Revoice ideology in the AFA/ GVC efforts.

The Perry’s are part of this AFA film project but this writer believes that their involvement and others, like himself does not reflect an endorsement of  the TGC/ Yarhouse of Revoice message.  They and some others likely would not knowingly endorse a partnership attempting to combine both the denunciation of Revoice and the wedding of GVC or AFA or any other such efforts with TGC/ Yarhouse, Revoice, Rethink  or any such compromised ideologies being promoted to the church. The mingling and mixture is deadly and robs people and their families in LGBTQ related bondage of the true and infinite  hope of the Gospel. Whatever motivations AFA and GVC leaders have -to combine these movements is not known. What is known is that these two opposite approaches to LGBTQ concerns in the church cannot find common ground as Revoice and Yarhouse ideology is antithetical to the Gospel. Pray for these organizations and for people like this author and others who are caught in the middle of whatever forces are moving this compromise.)

WHAT THIS NEW PARTNERSHIP NOW REVEALS

AFA WAS FIRST OBSERVED WORKING WITH TGC IN ANOTHER FILM PROJECT IN 2018

NOW  THE SECOND AFA FILM PROJECT DETAILS EMERGE 

Just recently the contributors to the AFA film project became available to the public. In addition to God’s Voice leader Stephen Black is the SHOCKING reality that the film contributors includes TGC and other spokespersons most closely associated with the promoting and mainstreaming of the Mark Yarhouse /Revoice ideology.

IMPORTANT TO NOTE ON TGC ENDORSEMENT OF REVOICE LEADERS AND IDEOLOGY:

TGC CO-FOUNDER D.A. CARSON IN 2017 PROMOTED THE BOOK “SINGLE GAY CHRISTIAN BY REVOICE “WORSHIP “LEADER AND SPEAKER GREGORY COLES.

THE BOOKS FORWARD IS BY REVOICE AND “SPIRITUAL FRIENDSHIP LEADER WESLEY HILL .

Single, Gay, Christian: A Personal Journey of Faith and Sexual Identity Paperback – August 22, 2017

by Gregory Coles  (Author), Wesley Hill (Foreword)

“To say this book is important is a painful understatement. It is the candid, moving, intensely personal story of a gay young man who wants to live his life under the authority of King Jesus and who refuses to accept the comforting answers proffered by different parts of the culture. Superbly written, this book stands athwart the shibboleths of our day and reminds us what submission to King Jesus looks like, what it feels like. This book needs to be thoughtfully read by straight people and by gay people, by unbelievers and by Christians. It is not to be read with a condescending smirk, but with humility.” (D. A. Carson, president, The Gospel Coalition, research professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School)”

TGC HAS PUBLISHED AND CONTINUE TO PROMOTE REVOICE LEADERS ARTICLES AND TGC  OTHER CO-FOUNDER TIM KELLER AND HIS WIFE  ENDORSED THE RADICAL LIVING OUT LGBTQ CHURCH INCLUSION AUDIT AS LIVING OUT WAS ENDORSING REVOICE “FOR THEIR US AUDIENCE”.

DOCUMENTATION OF THE TGC  ISSUES WILL BE PROVIDED MORE IN FULL BELOW BUT HERE IS A SHORT OVERVIEW OF THE CONFLICTED PARTNERS AND THE PRO REVOICE /PRO YARHOUSE HISTORIES.

KEVIN DEYOUNG

Deyoung is a popular PCA and TGC leader. The PCA Covenant Theological Seminary in St Louis MO is where much of the Revoice movement was incubated. Deyoung is part of the PCA Committee Report which only last week gave cover to the entire movement which has already split the PCA .More reaction is to follow to this PCA apostasy on LGBTQ. Deyoung is a close disciple of TGC founder Tim Keller and TGC fully signed on to promote Yarhouse SOGI ideology in 2010.

(NOTE Yarhouse long history with TGC recounted by Yarhouse bio here. http://sexualidentityinstitute.org/sample-page/dr-mark-yarhouse/

“Dr. Yarhouse is the past recipient of the Gary R. Collins Award for Excellence in Christian Counseling (American Association of Christian Counselors) and the Chancellor’s Award for Excellence at Regent University. He was a past participant with the Ethics and Public Policy Center think tank in Washington, DC, and he was named Senior Fellow with the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities to conduct a study of students navigating sexual identity concerns at Christian colleges and universities. He has been a consultant to the National Institute of Corrections under the Department of Justice to address issues facing sexual minorities in corrections, and he was part of a consensus panel from the American Psychological Association on sexual orientation and gender identity change efforts that convened to provide input to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) in Washington, DC. Dr. Yarhouse is currently the Chair of the task force on LGBT issues for Division 36 (Psychology of Religion and Spirituality) of the American Psychological Association. He was recently invited to write the featured white paper on sexual identity for the Christ on Campus Initiative edited by Don A. Carson for The Gospel Coalition.”

STEPHEN BLACK  

Black is or has been one of the key defenders of “ex gay” counseling and his ministry First Stone defends these ministries while he has condemned the Revoice movement strongly. Black and his ministry help organize Gods Voice Conference in opposition to Revoice but is now working with AFA and a team of Yarhouse, Revoice, TGC ideology promoters.

RYAN T.ANDERSON 

Anderson is a Heritage Foundation leader but he worked DIRECTLY WITH  Revoice leader Nate Collins in 2017 as Revoice was being planned and founded. Revoice  founder Collins reviewed Ryan Anderson’s book for Christianity Today and other outlets in 2017. Anderson and Revoice leaders Nate Collins and Preston Sprinkle worked together in a panel in the “Q Ideas “forum led by Tim Keller disciple Gabe Lyons in 2017. Collins and Q Ideas history of this work with Ryan Anderson have been removed from Collins SBTS (TGCs Albert Mohler  SBC seminary) academic resume’ where he studied and worked (for 14 1/2 years) teaching New Testament . Q Ideas no longer list the Anderson/ Collins/ Sprinkle panel event either.

SEAN MCDOWELL 

McDowell is a leading Biola University Apologetics Department instructor. He works with Stand to Reason (STR) apologetics  and several other organizations. Biola is FULLY SUBSCRIBED TO MARK YARHOUSE  and McDowell promotes and interviews him. In 2016 Stand To Reason launched a version of Revoice  CALLED  Rethink in its LGBTQ conversations . On the topic of LGBTQ -“RETHINK APOLOGETICS  is all based on Mark Yarhouse ideology.

AFA “ IN HIS IMAGE” FILM NARRATIVE LOOKS TO BE AN EXTENTION OF THE CATHOLIC LGBTQ INCLUSION MESSAGE OF THE IMAGO DEI CAMPAIGN OF 2014

“Gays are created in the image of God. So are liberals. The rich. The undocumented. Unbelievers. Everyone, even, and most importantly, the people with whom you do not agree.

“That’s the message of the Imago Dei Campaign, a new movement of prominent evangelical groups launched on Monday to erode the culture war battle lines that have helped define evangelical discourse for the better part of half a century. The Imago Dei, or Image of God, pledge is simple: “I recognize that every human being, in and out of the womb, carries the image of God; without exception. Therefore, I will treat everyone with love and respect.”

“The inclusion of the “straight and gay” clause is particularly bold given the heated political climate over gay marriage in the evangelical community, and that is precisely the point. Rodriguez, Daly and others hope that the Imago Dei message sets a new tone for evangelical conversations about controversial political topics. “We have broken this down into simply battle language, culture war, and I think it is frankly unhealthy,” Daly explains. “We need to express the Christian message in a different way.”

“The Imago Dei may not go far enough for activists who want evangelical groups like Focus on the Family to completely reverse their position on gay marriage. But it is a step reminiscent of Pope Francis’ now historic “Who am I to judge” tone-shift on the gay community. Rodriguez hopes the Imago Dei will take hold with similar weight. “Can we go beyond having a confrontation, can we have a conversation that is better than a debate?” he asks. “We are coming into the room as equals because we are both made in the image of God. It changes everything.”

GOD’S VOICE CONFERENCE SCRAMBLE TO DENY TIES TO AFA OR REVOICE COMPROMISE.

GODS VOICE “COMMITTEE” DENIED – DISAVOWED -AND DISOWNED THE LEAVEN OF REVOICE IN THE AMERICAN FAMILY ASSOCIATIONS FILM “IN HIS IMAGE” IN JUNE OF 2020. 

https://www.godsvoice.us/a-message-from-the-gods-voice-c

A Message from The God’s Voice Conference Committee – June 12, 2020

“The members of the God’s Voice Conference steering committee would like to set the record straight concerning some false allegations that have been leveled against us”.

First Stone Ministries executive director Stephen Black, who also serves on the God’s Voice Conference steering committee, was asked to appear in American Family Studios‘ upcoming film, “In His Image,” to share his testimony on camera. God’s Voice Conference had no involvement in the film and has no formal relationship with American Family Studios or the American Family Association.

As the choice of participants in the film was solely that of American Family Studios, Stephen Black had no knowledge about, say over or contact with anyone else interviewed for the film except for Laura and Francine Perry. Subsequently, Stephen Black’s participation in the film in no way implies any endorsement of any other participants, their ministries or any entity connected to or endorsed by any other participant.”

“God’s Voice Conference and all its steering committee members — Stephen Black, Peter LaBarbera and Janet Mefferd — continue to strongly and categorically reject the deadly errors and heresies of both Revoice and Mark Yarhouse. In addition, they continue to repudiate every error of The Gospel Coalition related to the sins of both homosexual lusts and homosexual behavior and any unbiblical position of any of its members or writers who undermine, in any way, the hope of redemption and Christ-centered transformation for every repentant sexual sinner.”

“God’s Voice Conference and its steering committee members remain firmly and faithfully committed to the Word of God and the power of the gospel of Jesus Christ to save and transform anyone wrestling with homosexuality or any other form of sexual sin. Our biblical position against all forms of alleged “LGBTQ+ Christianity” is the entire reason we created and conducted the God’s Voice Conference. If we did not strongly believe that this dangerous heresy needed to be refuted from the Word of God, the conference would not exist.

Anyone who has communicated or implied in any way that the God’s Voice Conference has, in any way, shape or form, compromised its biblical position on homosexuality, or that anyone on the God’s Voice Conference steering committee has either directly or implicitly endorsed or supported any person or entity that rejects or undermines the biblical hope offered by the God’s Voice Conference last year, is smearing the conference with known falsehoods and baseless conspiracy theories.

We look forward to the upcoming God’s Voice Conference in 2021, with details about a new date coming soon. Now, as ever, we are profoundly grateful to the Lord for His boundless love, infinite mercy and abiding truth.”

‘A LITTLE LEAVEN

“ Confronting the Ideology of the Revoice Movement.”

M.D. Perkins 

American Family Association 

Tupelo, Mississippi 2021

SIDE A VS SIDE B

The most useful tactic by Revoice activist to divert criticism is the promote the discussion of the “Side A ( fully LGBTQ Affirming ) and Side B ( embracing LGBTQ Christian identities but stopping short of  affirming LGBTQ sexual activity or marriage. 

At the Presbyterian Church in America /P

SAMPLE of AFA/Perkins Side a vs Side B narrative 

“This thinking has been variously labelled: Side B thinking, the Spiritual Friendship movement, gay celibate theology, or the Revoice movement. Each term is basically synonymous, yet each also imperfectly captures a different emphasis or historic moment of the stream of thinking. They each require a little context in order to appreciate why they have been variously used by people trying to understand or define the ideology. The term Side B began as a label adopted by some “gay Christians” on the Gay Christian Network website in the early 2000s in conversations between Justin Lee (gay affirming author) and Ron Belgau (gay celibate Catholic). Side B Christians believe homosexual behavior to be sinful and that “gay Christians” should remain celibate because of the Bible’s teaching. Nevertheless, Side B Christians found abiding comradery with affirming “gay Christians” (or Side A) because of their shared experience as homosexuals, frequently recounting stories about being mistreated or misunderstood in conservative churches. Both Side A and Side B shared a resistance to “ex-gay” ministry (such as Exodus International) and trauma counseling. They both tended to de-emphasize the potential causes of homosexuality, implicitly assuming some inherent cause, and quickly moving on to focus on how someone should live in light of the experience of same-sex attraction. They both emphasized that homosexual orientation could not change and that Christians needed to alter their culture war response to LGBT issues in society.”

MUCH OF THE AFA /PERKINS DISCUSSION IN THE 73 PAGE DOCUMENT ON REVOICE THEOLOGY “A LITTLE LEAVEN” IS MIRED IN THE SIDE A VS SIDE B TALKING POINTS USED BY REVOICE ACTIVIST TO COVER THEIR LGBTQ CHRISTIAN ADVOCACY IN THE NARRATIVES OF “CELIBACY OR MIXED ORIENTATION MARRIAGE” WHILE OPENLY ADVOCATING FOR LGBTQ AND “QUEER CHRISTIANITY”.

Why does AFA and Perkins use the activist word salad of deflection? Why did the PCA leaders allow their General Assembly efforts to refute Revoice inside their own denomination to be lost in 3-4 hours of the same discussion? 

In the case of the PCA the effort is allowed to flourish alongside Revoice “flourishing” inside the conservative PCA -while it remain deeply embedded and unchallenged in its own Flagship Seminary CTS in St Louis where Revoice is headquartered.  CTS nor the PCA have made ANY EFFORT to rid the flagship seminary of Revoice where it was incubated in the PCA and continues to have MANY ALLIES and complicit organizations. 

AFA’s MF Perkins is a PCA church elder in Mississippi and has now joined his input into the problems the PCA is having in dealing with the real issue and extent of infiltration.

NOTE- Revoice has already SPLIT THE PCA ONCE and many individual members have left due to it and TGC unchecked influences. The STRUGGLE for a few conservative biblically committed PCA leaders is ongoing but has all but failed in the PCA and another EVEN LARGER SPLIT IS EXPECTED soon. The PCA was born a generation ago out of the similar battles which failed to prevent the PCUSA from becoming “Gay affirming” including in ordination of practicing /self-identified LGBTQ as it is today.  The current Side B /Celibate but “adhering to orthodox Christian Ethic” is nothing more than the old language of “non practicing homosexuals” of 4 decades ago. The mushy middle -like the Side B position always slides into the far left of total affirmation, membership, and ordination of practicing , active and now more broadly identified as “LGBTQ Christians”.

PERKINS PCA ARTICLE PUBLISHED RECENTLY 

In this article AFA’s Perkins goes into great detail about pastor Greg Johnson who is a Revoice leader and hosted the 2018 event at his PCA Church Memorial Presbyterian.  Perkins repeatedly names the PCUSA influences on Johnson but fails to go anywhere near his own PCA’s Covenant Theological Seminary DEEP ties to Revoice OR those of Founder Nate Collins whose almost 15 years being educated , employed and teaching New Testament while funding Revoice at Albert Mohler’s Southern Baptist Theological Seminary SBTS – the flagship Southern Baptist Seminary. Why do Perkins and AFA ignore these realities and instead deflect on Side A vs Side B, Johnsons flimsy narratives and extended discussion on the PCUSA influences on him rather than his own compromised denominational seminary? 

WHY did AFA and Perkins wait YEARS into the destructive movement of Revoice to begin in 2021 to refute it? Why are they deflecting attention off the much deeper connections of Nate Collins who founder Revoice to Albert Mohler and SBTS? 

Why did Parkins in the AFA paper on the Theology of Revoice discuss at length about Alan Chambers and the 2013 collapse of Exodus International (page 17)while leaving out the now well documented fact that Nate Collins and his father Chip ,both already Albert Mohler underlings at the time, were working directly with Alan Chambers in Exodus International as it was collapsed in 2013?

https://web.archive.org/web/20130319132739/http://exodusfreedom.org/overview-2/featured-speakers/

Alan Chambers
In 1991, Alan Chambers abandoned an identity based on his sexual attractions and embraced an identity rooted in Christ. For the past 10 years he has been the President of Exodus International. An accomplished speaker and writer, Alan has been interviewed by many national and international media outlets. He is also the primary author of God’s Grace and the Homosexual Next Door and Leaving Homosexuality. In 2011, he was named World Magazine’s Daniel of the Year – a designation given to individuals who exhibit great faith and strength in standing against ungodly trends. He and his wife live in Orlando, with their son and daughter.
Chip & Nate Collins
Nate and his father, Chip, are the Directors of Aligned Grace Resources, an organization that equips churches to minister the grace and truth of the gospel to people affected by same-sex attraction. For 30 years, Chip has ministered in churches and college campuses in the US, and in the mission fields of South America and the Caribbean. Married for 35 years to his wife, Suzie, they have three grown sons.

Nate is passionate about helping pastors and church leaders to be more informed and effective ministers of the gospel as they reach out to individuals and families affected by same-sex attraction. He is currently pursuing a PhD in New Testament Studies at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Nate and his wife, Sara, have been married for nine years and they have two sons.

PERKINS AFA AND MARK YARHOUSE -THE SHUFFLE TO HIDE THE GOPSLE COALITION ?

On page of the AFA /Perkins Revoice paper Perkins mentions a whitepaper written by Mark Yarhouse in 2010 but fails to expose that this infamous Whitepaper is the basis od TGC subscribing to Revoice ideology via Yarhouse in 2010 when D A Carson commissioned and adapted it for use in the Christ on Campus work from TEDS/ TGC. 

Perkins 

“In a 2010 paper intended to help guide Christian colleges to reconsider the validity of sexual identity, Yarhouse says Side B Christians are not creating “a sense of identity around the common meanings or connotations associated with ‘gay’ as an identity label.” He continues: To some, this might mean that these gay Christians are changing the common meaning of the word “gay” in that they reject behavioral expression of their attraction for religious reasons. But to these Christian sexual minorities, they share a common sense of experience with members of the gay community, and the use of the word “gay” (as a self-defining attribution) is an honest account of their sexual attractions and reflects the resonance they feel with the gay community at that level. 129 As evidenced by his own terminology, Yarhouse has already decided the point. He freely admits that there is potential for identity to be shaped by language when he says, “I encourage people to carefully examine the language that they use to describe themselves and their experiences since I believe language can shape a person’s sense of identity.”130 It is not clear what should motivate a person to exercise carefulness over their language choice besides a personal sense of authenticity. That is because Yarhouse sees identity labels as a purely personal choice and not something that the Bible should guide. Essentially, he lands exactly where Revoice does in their Statement: it is “a matter of wisdom and liberty.” 

YET YARHOUSE OWN BIO CONFIRMS THIS WHITEPAPER TO HAVE ACTUALLY BECOME THE BASIS OF HIS / TGC CHRIST ON CAMPUS FOCUS.

So Perkins proves the error of Yarhouse thinking, mentions the Whitepaper and links it and fails to mention it is the TGC gold standard commissioned by D A Carson cofounder of TGC with LGBTQ/ Living Out Revoice compromised Tim Keller. Perkins even goes on to quote from TGC compromised leader and AFA film “In His Image” presenter Kevin De Young. How is this oversight possible?

(NOTE this link is from Biola where Yarhouse was speaking and where another AFA/ Perkins film presenter who subscribes to Mark Yarhouse flawed ideology -the basis of Revoice – works in the Biola/Stand to Reason Apologetics. That being Sean McDowell Revoice and Yarhouse influences are all over the place in the AFA film but never noticed by AFA or Perkins? )

Excerpt from Yarhouse bio in Biola event 2018 

 “He was also invited to write the featured white paper on sexual identity for the Christ on Campus Initiative edited by Don A. Carson for The Gospel Coalition.”

Contemporary Issues Series “Navigating Sexual Identity & Faith: Listening to Sexual Minorities on Christian College Campuses”

Mark Yarhouse

  •  
    • Monday, January 22, 2018
  • Speakers
  • Mark Yarhouse
  • “Mark A. Yarhouse, Psy.D., is the Rosemarie S. Hughes Endowed Chair and Professor of Psychology at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Virginia, where he is a core faculty member in the Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology. Dr. Yarhouse has spent several years promoting dialogue between people who view the topic of sexual identity differently. In 2000, he chaired a groundbreaking symposium at the American Psychological Association’s annual convention that brought together gay psychologists and Christian psychologists to discuss common ground in treatment options for those who experience sexual and religious identity conflicts.”
  • “Dr. Yarhouse is the past recipient of the Gary R. Collins Award for Excellence in Christian Counseling. He was a past participant with the Ethics and Public Policy Center think tank in Washington, DC, and he was named Senior Fellow with the Council of Christian Colleges and Universities to conduct a study of students navigating sexual identity concerns at Christian colleges and universities. He has been a consultant to the National Institute of Corrections to address issues facing sexual minorities in corrections, and he was part of a consensus panel from the American Psychological Association on sexual orientation and gender identity change efforts that convened to provide input to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) in Washington, DC. Dr. Yarhouse is currently the Chair of the task force on LGBT issues for Division 36 (Psychology of Religion and Spirituality) of the American Psychological Association. He was also invited to write the featured white paper on sexual identity for the Christ on Campus Initiative edited by Don A. Carson for The Gospel Coalition.”

ON PAGE 46 NOTE PERKINS QUOTES AND FOOTNOTES OF TAINTED TGC ARTICLES AND BOOK REVIEWS BY TGC’S KEVIN DEYOUNG AND BAPTIST ERLC ANDREW WALKER WHO WORKED UNDER RUSSELL MOORE WHOSE OWN ERLC FELLOW PROMTED REVOICE AND WHOSE CRT /INTERSECTONALITY ACTIVIST CONTRACTOR IS A SPEAKER AND BOARD MEMBER. 

DeYoung nor Walker can expose Revoice or Yarhouse while being deeply entrenched in movements promoting both Revoice and Yarhouse. 

“Christian identity is something that encompasses position, identification, and experience—and, in the common understanding, gay identity is something that does the same thing. As pastor Kevin DeYoung highlights in his critique of the Revoice 18 conference: I agree with Rosaria Butterfield (among others) who find the term [“gay Christian”] deeply problematic in that (1) it makes sexual orientation an accurate and essential category of personhood, and (2) it undermines the biblical notion that a desire for something illegitimate is in itself an illegitimate desire in need of repentance and grace.131 Andrew T. Walker notes a similar issue in a critique of Side B author David Bennett’s book A War of Loves: We don’t attach other modifiers to our Christian faith when the modifier in question originates with sin or natures that are the product of the fall. We should no more endorse ‘gay Christianity’ or ‘gay identity’ than we should alcoholic Christianity, racist Christianity, or slanderous Christianity. We ought not modify our Christian walk with attributes born of fallen desires.132 Walker is right. No other sinful proclivity is partitioned off in quite the same way as homosexuality. Interestingly, in contrast to homosexuality, scientists do have some evidence that alcoholism could be considered a “complex genetic disease.”

IN SECTION 3 PERKINS QUOTES REVOICE FOUNDER NATE COLLINS OFTEN BUT FAILS TO EXPOSE HIS AFFILATIONS

Revoice Founder Collins is mentioned often and quoted repeatedly especially in the part 3 of Perkins AFA paper. Sam Allberry is also mentioned in a somewhat critical light for his SSA Christian identity.

Perkins FAILS to that Allberry is a TGC editor on all things LGBTQ.

Allberry’s Ministry Living Out hosted TGC cofounder Tim Keller and his wife in their London conference  just one month prior to Revoice 2018 launch in July while Living Out and Allberry promoted Revoice on social media “for our US audience”.

Perks AFA document does not point out that it was Nate Collins in 2013 who wrote the TGC critique of Sam Allberrys new book at the time “Is God anti Gay?”

CHRISTIAN LIVING

Is God Anti-Gay?

JULY 15, 2013  |  NATE COLLINS

“In this brief but important book, Is God Anti-Gay? And Other Questions about Homosexuality, the Bible, and Same-Sex Attraction, Sam Allberry combines pastoral wisdom, authentic autobiography, and sound exegesis to provide Christians with a helpful introduction to the topic of homosexuality.”


Nate Collins is the executive director of Aligned Grace Resources, a ministry he founded with his father to equip churches to minister the grace and truth of the gospel to people affected by same-sex attraction. Nate and his wife, Sara, live with their two sons in Louisville, Kentucky, where he is pursuing a PhD in New Testament at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. You can follow him on Twitter.”

The deception and collaboration with Revoice and TGC is deep and wide and long standing.  It should be noted that AFA was launching it’s own project in 2018 filled with leaders from TGC. 

Both Collins and Allberry claim influence of Mark Yarhouse and both have long term TGC ties where Yarhouse 2010 Whitepaper AFA’s Perkins says was “written to help”… became the gold standard on SOGI Sexual Orientation Gender Identity for TGC affiliates.

December 2017 TGC was promoting Nate Collins book “All But Invisible “ written and published while Collins was teaching New Testament at Al Mohler’s SBTS and planning Revoice inaugural event. Collins dissertation and book are the basis of Revoice development . His SBTS dissertation asserts that the use of Virgin in the NT is “proof of a third gender option “ in NT times. 

Nate Collins and AFA /Perkins Film presenter Ryan T Anderson were also working together in 2017 though Collins CV Resume at SBTS was later altered and shortened to hide the connections to Anderson and Collins. 

PAGE 25 OF PERKINS AFA “A LITTLE LEAVEN” AN ODD BIT OF MISTAKEN IDENTITY -THIS AUTHOR IS SITED IN THE FOOTNOTES BUT NOT IN THE ACTUAL TEXT. SOME  AFA AFFILIATES HAVE A HISTORY OF ATTEMPTING TO SILENCE THE DEEPER DIGGING REVOICE EXPOSURE DONE BY THIS AUTHOR. 

“By embracing the language of sexual orientation, are we not doing spiritual damage to sexual sinners by saying they have a unique sexual condition that they must “steward” rather than a temptation they must flee? Are we not emphasizing the failure of the flesh rather than the overcoming we expect in the Holy Spirit? These kinds of warnings are absent in the works of Revoice teachers and other Side B proponents. This is exactly why conservative commentators, such as Janet Mefferd, referred to the Revoice conference as a “Trojan horse,” 69 because destructive, worldly ideologies were being imported under the guise of being loving and “missionally sensitive.”

CHRONICLED EVENTS OF PCA , SBC AND OTHER ENTITIES AND INDIVIDUALS TO STOP THE TRUE EXPOSURE OF REVOICE ORIGINS DEEP INSIDE THE PCA AND SBC CAN BE FOUND AT THIS AUTHORS WEBSITE. THE FULL STORY OF TWIST AND TURNS AND SUBVERSION BY MULTIPLE PLAYERS TO HIDE THE FULL PCA AND SOUTHERN BAPTIST SEMINARIES AND LEADERS INVOLVEMENT IN REVOICE IS A LONG ONE IDDED. TOO LONG FOR THESE PAGES. 

CONCLUSION 

AFA and Michael Perkins work “exposing Revoice “ its origins, the behind the scenes development of it and it’s actual heretical realities are lost in a film which is deeply leavened with TGC Revoice and Yarhouse devotees , a Catholic who worked directly with Nate Collins the Revoice founder and is produced by a fringe and slippery character from the New Apostolic Reformation with a history of dividing movements. AFA and Perkins theological treatment of Revoice and its devotion to issues outside its real origins inside the flagship seminaries of the PCA and SBC conservative denominations serves little purpose except to prevent viewers and readers from understanding the depths of Revoice utter infiltration of the church and the looming reality that this deep infiltration of not only the false “LGBTQ Christianity” but social, racial, refugee, economic and socialist “justice”. Are robbing the church of its vision, the Great Commission and the heart and soul of PROCLAIMING the powerful Gospel of Jesus life death and resurrection. 

GALATIONS 1:

Only One Gospel

6 “I marvel that you are turning away so soon from Him who called you in the grace of Christ, to a different gospel, which is not another; but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert[a] the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel to you than what we have preached to you, let him be [b]accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, if anyone preaches any other gospel to you than what you have received, let him be accursed.10 For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? For if I still pleased men, I would not be a bondservant of Christ.”

REVOICE IS NOW RECRUITING CHURCH PARTNERSHIPS. DON’T BE DECEIVED.

THE ROOTS OF REVOICE : 2016 Q IDEAS CONFERENCES SHOW MOST OF THE PLAYERS AND EARLY TGC/ ERLC/ YARHOUSE PROMOTION OF REVOICE IDEOLOGY .

TIM KELLER, RUSSELL MOORE, REVOICE LEADERS , MARK YARHOUSE WERE ALL HERE IN THE MELTING POT OF THE “GAY CONVERSATION” SERIES .BY 2018 WE KNEW WHAT THEY WERE UP TO AND HAD SLITHERED INTO OUR SEMINARIES AND CHURCHES.

Rev Thomas Littleton

3/1/2022

This information is provided to help link the actual history of the development of Revoice and it’s deadly and divisive impact on conservative churches.

Revoice is now actively seeking to develop “Church Partnerships”. The movement has already split the conservative Presbyterian Church in America .In the background, unknown to many is the reality of these 2016 and beyond “Gay Conversations” including such leaders as The Gospel Coalition co-founder Tim Keller, Russell Moore ( TGC leadership council and then head of Southern Baptist Policy arm ERLC) and this radical host of Revoice leaders .

REVOICE LATEST EFFORT TO RECRUIT PARTNER CHURCHES IN THE EVER DEEPENING DECEPTION .

“Introducing the Church Partnership Program”

“For years, Revoice has been creating Christ-centered community for sexual minorities. Our conference has connected individuals who had previously lived in isolation and cast vision for abundant life in Christ Jesus. As we continue to care for our community, we believe God is expanding the work of Revoice – so we are excited to announce our Church Partnership program! Walking together in deliberate and consistent relationship, we will empower local ministries to compassionately and Biblically disciple sexual minorities.”

“Revoice Church Partnership offers three options for engagement, to meet the specific needs of individual churches. Our Shepherding Cohort provides monthly group training through a year-long curriculum, and connects ministry leaders with others who are growing in their care for sexual minorities. Our Consult program adds a private monthly meeting where we provide contextualized guidance to your ministry, and our Coach program goes a step further in helping you execute your own growth plan with access to specialized training.”

“If you are interested in your ministry becoming a Revoice Church Partner, fill out our contact form at revoice.us/church-partnership, and our Director of Community Care will contact you for a 30 minute informational meeting. We are currently taking applications in March for our cohort launching in April.”

Church Partnership

“Our Church Partnership program invites local ministries to walk with us in consistent relationship so they may grow in their capacity to disciple sexual minorities.”


What is Church Partnership?

“A long-term program focused on helping pastors and ministry leaders care for sexual minorities. We focus on increasing your own understanding, compassion, and shepherding skills.”

Who is it for?

“Any ministry leader looking to grow in their ability to care for sexual minorities.”

How does it work?

“We offer three levels of engagement:”

-“Our Shepherding Cohort provides monthly group training through important areas of growth. You’ll get to know leaders across the country who are asking similar questions so you’re not alone in the journey. We’ll cover topics such as outreach, caring for teenagers, and theology.”

-“Our Consult program adds a private monthly meeting so we can provide guidance to your ministry. Working with a Revoice staff member, you’ll identify specific needs and goals. We’ll establish a growth plan that you will execute.”

-“Our Coach program goes a step further. With two private monthly meetings, we will help you develop and execute a custom growth plan. Those meetings can provide training to key leaders in your ministry, create programs that meet the needs of your community, and address situations that arise over the course of our relationship.”


Interested in becoming a Revoice Church Partner?

“Our Director of Community Care will contact you to schedule a 30 minute meeting!”

The Gay Conversation

A New Podcast Series From Q

ABOUT THE PODCAST SERIES

In society today, the orthodox Christian belief that the practice of homosexuality is a sin is out of step with the times. This tension is unavoidable.

In a moment where the cultural consensus has completely flipped, many who hold to the historic belief avoid the depth of this conversation at all costs. The risk of saying the wrong thing, offending a new friend, being extreme or worse yet—unloving, quiets the dialogue. Yet privately, Christians are desperate to address this important topic with love, clarity and biblical conviction. Is there really a way forward that demonstrates both truth and grace?

EPISODE 006

EPISODE 005
PUBLIC SQUARE: POLITICS AND BAKING CAKES

How should Christians faithfully engage our political system when the government is at odds with historic Christian belief? Is our role to win legal decisions or simply to bear witness to God’s kingdom through the way we live and love? In the wake of the Supreme Court’s Obergefell ruling, questions remain about the role of Christians institutions in our changing public square. Russell Moore, President of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptists joins us to discuss the legislative landscape around religious freedom, LGBT rights, pluralism and the future of Christian institutions in America.

EPISODE 004
MINISTRY: HOW SHOULD THE CHURCH MOVE FORWARD?

Many people who identify as gay have had a poor experience in their local church. In this episode we discuss the term “gay Christian”, the science behind the “born this way” theory and practical ways the church can be a more welcoming place in general. In addition, we will hear personal reflections from Christians who experience same-sex attractions yet choose to live a celibate life. We’ll also learn hear how the Church can fulfill relational longings that go beyond sexual expression.

EPISODE 003
RELATIONSHIPS: HOW DO I LOVE AND SUPPORT MY GAY FRIENDS?

Most people today have a personal friend who identifies as gay. For some Christians, this can create unique tensions and dilemmas about how to best support and love friends, family members and co-workers well, even while holding to the historic Christian position. In this episode we hear practical wisdom on handling invitations to gay weddings, how to respond if your child—or parent—comes out, the limits of theology and what it means to truly display Christian love to someone with whom you may disagree.

THEOLOGY: NOT WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS, BUT WHAT IT MEANS

One’s theology will determine everything about how they engage the gay conversation. In this episode, the Christian view of identity, sexual ethics and historic belief about human flourishing comes under the microscope. We define terms and consider how historic Christian arguments interact with the newer, gay-affirming points of view. From Leviticus to Paul, we address Jesus’ words around this topic and explore the Christian perspective on sexual design, gender difference and marriage.

CONCLUSION

REVOICE Movement was born in the conservative flagship Seminaries of the PCA (CTS) and the Southern Baptist (SBTS) .It is the product of the studies of Critical Theories on Race , Gender, Feminism, Sexual Minorities /Queer Theory and embodies the processes of SOCIAL CHANGE in the conservative Christian churches and denominations in the US, Europe and beyond . This process of “Gay Conversations” and promotion of the ideology of the American Psychological Association/ Mark Yarhouse Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity / SOGI is perhaps the greatest collaboration by deceptive evangelical leaders in our time. These endless “conversations” movements, books, curriculum and conferences are a classic DIALECTIC exchange to move Christians away from Biblical convictions and standards on human sexuality, gender, marriage and family. The Racial narratives of Critical Race Theory and rabid feminism are also part of this Intersectionality movement .

The tools of this trade are the classic Cultural Marxist tools of Social Change and Deconstructionism. Evangelical leaders ,including these documented above , are part of this grand deception driving the church toward inclusion in the Global Goals of inter-faith/ multi-faith global inclusive and affirming spirituality with the next generation , our children and grandchildren, being indoctrinated to be servants and minions in the “Common Good” as “Global Citizens”.

BUY THE TRUTH AND SELL IT NOT

Proverbs 23

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.

24 The father of the righteous will greatly rejoice,
And he who begets a wise child will delight in him.
25 Let your father and your mother be glad,
And let her who bore you rejoice.

26 My son, give me your heart,
And let your eyes observe my ways.

COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS INTERVIEW REVEALS GLOBALIST LGBTQ AGENDA VS CHRISTIANITY AND RELIGIOUS LIBERTY.

THE LONG RANGE GOAL OF THE HUMAN RIGHTS DISCUSSION GLOBALLY IS TO REPLACE ALL BOTHERSOME LANGUAGE DEFINING HUMAN RIGHTS WITH “HUMAN DIGNITY” AND USING TOOLS LIKE LGBTQ “RIGHTS” TO MAKE THE U.S. CONSITUTION AND OTHERS LIKE IT OBSOLETE. RELIGIOUS FREEDOM, SPEECH, ALL PERSONAL FREEDOM ARE THEN REDEFINED AND LIMITED BY THAT WHICH ASSERTS TO RECONGIZE THE “DIGNITY OF THE FRINGE”.

Rev Thomas Littleton

2/26/2022

In recent years there has emerged a new language and stated set of concerns and special interest which subject religious liberty to limitations and redefinition . It is the language contained in a very small phrase “human dignity”. All personal freedoms for all “global citizens ” are now being subjected to and redefined by it.

Christianity is it’s largest target and a recent Council on Foreign Relations interview with a “Faith Based Partnership ” and Human Rights Campaign /LGBTQ advocacy leader shows the application of the phrase and the tools of the trade for forced global “social change”.

Remember CFR is one of if not THE OLDEST globalist think tank and policy influencer funded and directed by David Rockefeller. It’s values have helped created the United Nations and drive both national and global policy.

Global LGBTQ+ Rights

Wednesday, February 2, 2022

Religion and Foreign Policy Webinars

“Michael Vazquez, independent policy advisor, discusses LGBTQ+ rights around the world and the Biden administration’s efforts to promote and defend these rights at home and abroad.”

EXPANDED BIO FOR MICHAEL

“Vazquez, Director of HRC’s Religion & Faith Program, is Catholic and lives in Washington, D.C. Before joining HRC, Vazquez was the Co-Executive Director of Brave Commons, which works to support LGBTQ rights on Christian college campuses. He holds a Master of Theological Studies from Duke University’s Divinity School.”

“As a public theologian and organizer, both my personal faith and the collective faith of the movement for our liberation have been central in my pursuit of the common good. Catholicism teaches that we are to hate evil and to love justice, and that is why abolition and an unyielding commitment to the defense of Black LGBTQ lives are the central ethics that drive my work. The way my queerness prophetically intersects with my faith allows me—as it does other LGBTQ faith leaders, theologians, and organizers—to imagine a reality far more just, equitable, and abundant than anything we have ever experienced, and it grants both the resilience and vitality to do the work to get us there.”

Michael Vazquez, Human Rights Campaign Director of Religion & Faith

CRF INTERVIEW BY

Irina A. Faskianos

Vice President for National Program and Outreach, Council on Foreign Relations

COUNCIL ON FOREIGN RELATIONS PITCH ON LGBTQ RIGHTS

“Michael Vazquez is a public theologian, community organizer, and communications strategist. He serves as an advisor to government institutions, political candidates, religious and spiritual leaders, and nonprofit organizations on issues at the intersection of religion, politics, and social justice. Mr. Vazquez served as communications director at the Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships at USAID, the religion and faith director at the Human Rights Campaign, and as a fellow at Faith and Public Life, and founder of Brave Commons. He was also an advisor to the faith engagement team for the Biden-Harris campaign.”

“So, Michael, thanks very much for being with us. I would like it if you could set the table and talk a little bit about what is being done to promote LGBTQ+ rights in the United States and around the world, and how faith communities can contribute to this.”

( ABOVE NOTE THE ROLE OF ACTIVIST IN THE FAITH BASED NEIGHBORHOOD PARTNERSHIPS WHICH ALLOW CHURCHES, DENOMINATIONS AND RELIGIOUS ORGANIZATIONS TO OBTAIN GOVERNMENT FUNDING.)

STRAIGHT CUT TO THE CHASE OF CHRISTIANITY AND RELIGIOUS FREEDOM

SOME EXCERPTS ON CHRISTIANITY, RELIGION AND GLOBAL LGBTQ RIGHTS

VAZQUEZ

I want to begin by talking about the role that faith communities, particularly faith leaders, have always held in communities throughout history as truth tellers and storytellers, right? That’s one of the principal roles that faith leaders have held, and not just clergy but cantors, singers, choirs, artists. Their role has been to disseminate truth and to tell a story about community in order to edify a community towards a particular end. Typically, throughout faith traditions, that’s towards the common good. How do we ensure that every member of our community and those that serve the communities that surround us experience equity, experience justice, safety, and security?”

“INHERENT (HUMAN) DIGNITY AND HOW FAITH LEADERS CAN ADVANCE LGBTQ RIGHTS”.

“One of the truths most religious traditions hold as central and core to their faith is that every individual has inherent dignity and value. You find that Islam. You find that in Christianity. You find that in Judaism. You find that in Hinduism. Across traditions, you find this core belief that every individual in the entirety of creation has inherent dignity and value. And so while there might be disagreements about policy, while there might be disagreements about positions on gender and sexuality broadly speaking, every tradition has maintained that there is dignity in every human person. And I think that’s a critical thing for us to set the table with because as we look at how faith leaders and faith communities both domestically and globally can engage in advancing LGBTQ rights, we need to go back to the core tenets that these communities hold and uphold and call on them to draw out of those traditions in order to advance justice for the LGBTQ community and, as a result, advance justice and equity for all communities.”

THE AFFIRMING POPE FRANCIS AND “THE COMMON GOOD”

“Pope Francis speaks on this by saying that disagreements of a philosophical or theological nature between faiths or between particular groups and people of faith are not obstacles to uniting to pursue shared goals as long as everyone involved shares a concern for the common good.”

ASSERTION THAT “MAJORITY OF PEOPLE OF FAITH SUPPORT LGBTQ RIGHTS”.

“I think that what we have seen, is as this story has been told both in the U.S. and abroad, as this—the reality that LGBTQ people—lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer people—have human—basic dignity, and thus have—should have access to the full diversity of human rights available to everyone else. As this has been shared, we have seen an increase—the data has shown—Pew shows there’s been an increase of acceptance globally for LGBTQ people and rights that should be afforded to us. Likewise, the Public Religious (sic; Religion) Research Institute has shown that the majority of people of faith in the United States support comprehensive protections against discrimination for the LGBTQ community.

AMERICAN RELIGIOUS RIGHT /ANTI SODOMY LAWS/COLONIALISM / CONSERVATIVE CHRISTIAN GROUPS ” ARE THE PROBLEM ACCORDING TO VAZQUEZ AND CFR.

“So this begins with looking at the hard truths—the hard truths and then the hopeful things, right? The hard truth is that there has been a campaign globally by the religious right based in the United States and elsewhere, but primarily in the United States, to advance anti-LGBTQ policies, to support—whether that’s the anti-sodomy laws that we see in the Middle East and Africa; that’s—or we see throughout Africa some other anti-LGBTQ laws that are promoted by Catholic bishops, particularly in Uganda as an example. Throughout the world we see these, first, colonial holdover laws, colonial anti-sodomy laws that were left behind by European colonial powers and that have remained on the books ever since these colonial powers left these regions. And then you see, right, outside groups—outside conservatives—conservative religious groups pushing for the maintenance of these anti-LGBTQ laws, whether that’s banning relationships, whether that’s making being LGBTQ against the law and punishable by imprisonment and incarceration, or by death. We see that a lot of the advocacy for these laws come from minority religious groups in the United States and elsewhere.”

TRUMP WAS AGAINST THE LGBTQ ACCORDING TO THE INTERVIEW

“And we saw in order to help sustain this, in the previous administration we saw Secretary Pompeo—Secretary of State Pompeo institute the Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom, right? There’s a close connection between this idea that LGBTQ rights must be prevented that these conservative religious groups are pushing, and this idea that religious freedom must be protected from, over, and against LGBTQ rights; that religious freedom, particularly I would say conservative religious freedom, was under threat globally and must be protected by—against or from the advancement of LGBTQ rights.”

THE CORE POINT OF CONFLICT …IN HIS OWN WORDS

“And so the Ministerial on Religious Freedom elevated religious freedom above other rights or made a claim  contrary to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights that gives us a broad array of equal—coequal human rights, this ministerial and the previous administration claimed that there was—there’s religious freedom and then there’s all other rights, right? And we need to reframe that.”

A CALL TO “RELIGIOUS LEADERS TO STAND FOR LGBTQ RIGHTS

“We need religious leaders to stand in that also, not to say that our rights as religious people or people of faith are greater than the rights of other people. In order to safeguard LGBTQ rights and to advance LGBTQ rights globally, we have to get to the heart of this debate that there is religious freedom and religious rights in opposition to LGBTQ rights.”

MAKING ALLIES AND CALLING FOR THE EQUALITY ACT.

“Religious freedom is a major global issue. I will say that. It is a major global issue that we have to address with the rise of anti-Semitism, with the rise of Islamophobia, with the crackdowns on religious minorities around the world, there’s work that we have to do. There’s critical work that we have to do to ensure that religious minorities are protected, but we need to be able to distinguish between protecting religious freedom for religious minorities who are actually being persecuted, and the attempts by certain communities to use religious freedom as a weapon against other minority groups, which is what I believe we see in this battle for LGBTQ rights both domestically and abroad.”

“There are two major policies I want to speak to briefly and then we can get into it a little bit more later. But we have the GLOBE Act introduced by Senator Markey and we have the Equality Act, which passed the House for the second time last February. So we’re coming up—it was at the end of last February, so we’re coming up on the one-year anniversary of the Equality Act, which would provide comprehensive civil rights protections in matters of public accommodation, housing, employment, credit, et cetera, for LGBTQ people. Passed the House last February. We’re still waiting to see what its fate will be in the Senate.”

CONCLUSION

Faith leaders are well on their way to these grand deceptions and to moving the church into the hands of this global cabal. Ed Stetzer just recently spoke for a previous CFR forum and Rick Warren and others have been a members of CFR board.

Southern Baptist and other denominational leaders have joined HRC and other LGBTQ funders and activist on the Obama administrations Faith Based Partnership Board as far back as 2009. The Federal Funding and grants have been flowing ever since and the commitment to “the Common Good” mantra is sung like kumbaya around the grant camp fires.

ON THE OTHER SIDE- Nothing has actually played LGBTQ leaders than the promise of new found rights while all rights including their own are eroded and vaporize. They might have a few excited years with a sense of victory until this sad reality sets in.

No other issue has had more time in the spotlight in the last three decades than gay rights. From the 1969 Stonewall Riots to the 90s era declaration by MLK Southern Christian Leadership Conference cofounder Bayard Rustin that “gay is the new black” to the modern corporate shakedowns of the LGBTQ Rights Industrial Complex members like HRC…the call for equality is here to stay and ever expanding.

PROBLEM?

The problem is that this Human Rights movement and its powerful shift in language while simultaneously breaking down and deconstructing the old boundaries defining human rights , freedoms and protections IS IN FACT allowing the construction of global goals which then own all human rights allowing them to be stripped away including those of LGBTQ identified people. The rush to subject freedom of speech and freedom of religious conviction – Christian conviction and living by conscience to these new self identifiers- especially transgenderism have and are redefining what it means to be HUMAN and erasing thousands of years of human history defining humanity itself.

In Short no one has rights once what it means to be human or male or female becomes subject to any one of a thousand optional identities which everyone is then compelled by global overseers to recognize and respect the dignity of. No one has dignity .No one has freedom. Governments and global think tanks define all of our futures and we will all be on equal ground in the gulag of the coming modern society and its prisons of words.

Christianity is the fabric of modern Western Society and is hated by those who fail to recognize it or who want to destroy it. Equating Christian biblical conservatives or Donald Trump or Constitutional Conservatives as the enemies of human dignity is only proof that the narratives driven by forces like the Council on Foreign Relations care less for the rights or futures of minorities than they do about seizing and possessing their long lusted for global controls and Global Goals. Once realized we are ALL THE LOSERS.

The unseen power in the global scam of “Human Dignity” is the great deceiver Satan himself who robbed the human race of dignity in the Garden of Eden and took us all down the path to his own and our own destruction.

The only real “Human Dignity” comes from the ONE who made us Human and who Himself BECAME Human to restore not our rights but our access to the Throne Room of God by work of the cross and the reality of the empty tomb. All other assertions by think tanks and activist and the call to other alters is pure idolatry- nothing more.

1 John 5

Knowing the True—Rejecting the False

18 We know that whoever is born of God does not sin; but he who has been born of God keeps himself, and the wicked one does not touch him.

19 We know that we are of God, and the whole world lies under the sway of the wicked one.

20 And we know that the Son of God has come and has given us an understanding, that we may know Him who is true; and we are in Him who is true, in His Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God and eternal life.

21 Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen.

BAPTIST MEDIA PROMOTES FEMA /DHS GRANTS TO CHURCHES FOR “NON PROFIT SECURITY PROGRAM”.

LONG A DISTURBING TREND, THE SOUTHERN BAPTIST AND OTHER CONSERVATIVE EVANGELICAL CHURCHES APPETITE FOR FEDERAL MONEY IS GROWING .THIS TIME THEY APPEAR EAGER TO PARTNER WITH THE GOVERNMENT IN DEVELOPING SECURITY PROTOCOLS FOR INCEDENT RESPONSE AND “DOMESTIC TERRORISM”.

Rev Thomas Littleton

2-21-2022

Does your House of Worship (HOW classification in the grant documents) partner with the government and tax dollars for security, emergency relief efforts, community development, man-made incidents cyber crime response, and infrastructure training? If it does then it is very likely your church leadership have been enticed to do so by the lure of free money and the encouragement of denominational leaders.

Would you like to visit a new church and be actively “ASSESSED for being a potential THREAT” while DHS and FEMA trained “Greeters” chat with you in a program tool called “The Power of HELLO”? Your answers might get you reported to the federal agencies involved as a potential threat of person of interest if your politics or even preferred language does not follow that of the pastor or staffers or “trusted team” trained by and funded with government grants.

Good luck if you are seeking and visiting a new church or if you are considered a problematic member of your own.

If you do not think your “HOW” is involved or receiving such funding consider that leaders can often be less than forthcoming about such programs and that the potential for abuses are massive and growing.

LOUISIANA BAPTIST APPER PROMOTES FEMA GRANTS

FEMA announces grants, information opportunities

FEBRUARY 18, 2022

By Baptist Message staff

“WASHINGTON (LBM) – The Federal Emergency Management Agency has announced it is offering opportunities for faith-based organizations to learn how to apply for funding from the 2022 Nonprofit Security Grant Program.”

“Grants are provided on a competitive process for facility hardening and other security enhancements. So, FEMA is offering a series of webinars (each will present the same information and allow open forum questions) for applicants to learn how to make the best case for their respective needs regarding protection against attacks and other emergency preparedness issues.”

“Each presentation will start at 2 p.m. (CT) and is accessible using the respective web link; ID; and passcode:”

NOTE the article then provides 5 links to FEAM Zoom Meetings for March and April for interested pastors and the link for more information on these grants and application process.

WHAT IS THE FUNDING FOR ?

According to Department of Homeland Security churches or “Houses of Worship” need to partner with federal and local agencies in security and disaster preparedness and response.

THE GRANTS ARE COMING THROUGH FEMA ACCORDING TO DHS SITE

“The US Department of Homeland Security through FEMA provides nonprofit security grants which are managed in partnership through each state’s Homeland Security Advisor’s office.  These competitive based grants provide funding to improve facility security, preparedness, and emergency planning. FEMA Grant information website.”

OBVIOUS DANGERS COME INTO PLAY WHEN CHRISTIANS ARE THE ACCUSED

The idea that new Faith Based Grant Programs come into play as Christians are being blamed in a new report for “coordinating” the riots on January 6th 2021 is a bit beyond unsettling. Given the groundswell of media and progressive efforts to blame Donald Trump and “Trump supporters” ,especially “white ” evangelicals for the events of January 6th 2021 “Insurgency” (and beyond) -the idea of recruiting pastors and church officials to be full on and paid FEMA and DHS partners is sharpening a blade that could cut both ways.

Recall this quote form the April 28th 2021 Biden first address to Congress as President

”  Setting his administration’s tone in his first speech to Congress, US President Joe Biden said Wednesday that white supremacists posed the “most lethal” terrorist threat to the United States.”

“And we won’t ignore what our intelligence agencies have determined to be the most lethal terrorist threat to the homeland today, white supremacist terrorism,” he said.”

This new “Report ” blaming Christians ( white Christian nationalist/ Trump Evangelicals ) for Jan 6th riots at the Capitol in 2021 is part of a sweeping campaign to vilify conservative Christians.

Further DANGERS exist :

DHS language in the FEMA grants is disturbing as the Church or House of Worship is described as a “INCLUSIVE COMMUNITIES OF FAITH”. So what about those who do not fit the “inclusive ” mantra?

1- Many gullible young pastors and seminary students have already been indoctrinated with Social Justice and Critical Theories and view their own conservative congregants as “problematic politically ” and “divisive”. What is next? Pastors keeping an eye on the flock for their new partners? YES it even has a name ..”The Power of Hello”! More on that in a moment.

2- The Money from existing partnerships including FEMA, HHS, DHS and virtually every federal agency has negatively impacted the church and missions organizations often while congregants are unaware the funding and partnerships even exist. The Southern Baptist have a network of “Send Relief” centers across the country and in Puerto Rico which partner full time with federal agencies in FEMA disaster relief , community development, to import Muslim refugees, fight a variety of social ills.. many blamed on injustice and discrimination ,while promoting social justice , Diversity ,Equity & Inclusion. In Short the MONEY is driving the vision and NOT the Great Commission of Jesus. “Go into all the World and Preach the Gospel”. Matthew 16:15.

FAITH BASED PARTNERSHIP OF NT TIMES KILLED THEIR OWN MESSIAH

NOTE- a Cozy Faith Based Partnership existed between the religious leaders of Jesus day with Herod and the Roman Government. Protecting that “partnership ” and cooperation led to their demands that Jesus be arrested tried and executed !

3-Faith Based Partnerships do not allow for ministry of the Gospel and the church of “HOW” involved with such funding will be too busy in it’s FEMA roles where “any explicit religious activity” is forbidden and against the law and the grant guidelines.

How will Churches be able to do what God has commissioned them to do with the Gospel while fulfilling their roles and obligations as Government Contractors during disasters or other events impacting their communities?

4- All government understanding, training and guidelines are interfaith and have no ability to preserve or care for Christian Faith or its distinctives or God Given authority and vision. In fact it is just the opposite. Such interfaith and multi-faith efforts require the true church and it’s leadership to abandon such sectarian and divisive faith identities and become part of “is a trusted community within the inclusive, community of faith” which includes all faiths.

5- Abuse of federal and tax dollars has already been present in most Faith Based Partnerships including a $14 million dollar fraud case if this authors hometown with HHS money and Faith Based Healthcare Clinic downtown. No one has every really seemed concerned enough or made efforts to slow the flow of money and prevent the fraud and abuse .

6- ABUSE by pastors and church leadership / staff and elders is already a serious problem .So the answer to rampant abuse, coverups and corruption is MORE money and MORE power from Federal agencies?

7- For the most part people in houses of Faith have NO IDEA their “Houses of Faith” are involved in such funding let alone the dangerous programs and partnerships.

NO THIS IS BREWING UP A DISASTER OF ABUSE OF POWER AND CORRUPTION

REALITY ?

Many pastors and denominations have already been leading their churches down this deadly path of denying biblical Christianity in the name of “serving ” and “Community Development”. The church is not in danger of going down this path- it is well down this path and MORE MONEY is now paving the way for the slide into this FBP vision for the church in America . Separation of Church and State and Religious Liberty are already DONE with and over in such a model. This reality should concern both liberals and conservatives -both Christians and Atheist and everyone in between.

SOME ADDITIONAL AND DISTURBING DETAILS FOR CONSIDERATION

THE DHS AND FEMA GRANT PARTNERSHIP DETAILS

FAITH BASED COMMUNITY RESOURCES

“The Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is committed to supporting efforts to maintain safe and secure houses of worship and related facilities while sustaining an open and welcoming environment. In partnership with the Department of Homeland Security Center for Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships and the Faith-Based Information Sharing and Analysis Organization, CISA provides resources that assist in securing physical and cyber infrastructure.”

“CISA aims to provide a first stop for guidance and resources that will inform FOB-HOW security-based decisions.  Included below are numerous resources, including a Guide and Self-Assessment Tool, which provide building blocks for effective safety and security programs. The resources include assessment, training, planning, exercises, and other materials focused on a wide range of man-made threats (e.g., bombing, active shooter, vehicle ramming, etc.) that could be used against the FBO-HOW community.”

THE POWER OF HELLO” GREETING IS NOW AN INVESTIGATION

“THE POWER OF HELLO” PROGRAM-

NO LONGER JUST GREETING A STRANGER TO MAKE THEM FEEL WELCOME TO CHURCH

“Every day we face a variety of potential threats, both internal and external, from hostile governments, terrorist groups, disgruntled employees and malicious introducers. Alert employees can spot suspicious activity and report it. The power is in the employee, citizen, patron, or any person who can observe and report.”

WORDS AS A TOOL?

“Used effectively, the right words can be a powerful tool. Simply saying “Hello” can prompt a casual conversation with unknown individuals and help you determine why they are there. The OHNO approach – Observe, Initiate a Hello, Navigate the Risk, and Obtain Help – helps employees observe and evaluate suspicious behaviors, and empowers them to mitigate potential risk, and obtain help when necessary.”

“SPOTTING AND REPORTING SUSPICIOUS ACTIVITY”

“This more focused guide promotes employee vigilance for our houses of worship stakeholders. Alert personnel can better spot suspicious activity and actively report it. Keeping houses of worship facilities secure while sustaining the open and welcoming environment necessary for peaceful congregation requires a holistic approach to security.”

GUIDEBOOKS AND TRAINING

“This guide identifies behavioral and suspicious activity indicators and provides basic personal security measures to reduce the probability of becoming a victim of an attack. “

HISTORY OF COLLABORATION DEVELOPMENT

FEMA has become a comfortable partner for many churches and denominations through Disaster Relief efforts. In fact the Southern Baptist in Louisiana where this Baptist Press report on the grants comes via its state Baptist newspaper have long been addicted to FEMA funds and partnerships since the advent of the FBP programs under Bush and Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

The Obama Administration saw the CEO of the Southern Baptist Executive Committee joins in the Obama era overhaul of the FBP programs and aligned with a wide assortment of activist and progressives to find “Common Ground for the Common Good” and to of course get the grants !!!

NOW THINGS ARE ADVANCING BEYOND SERVING TO BECOMING SECURITY FORCES AND EYES AND EARS IN THE CHURCH AND COMMUNITY.

CHURCHES BECOME HOMETOWN PROTECTORS AND WATCHDOGS

“The U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) most important mission is to protect the American people.  As part of this mission, DHS fosters collaboration between the private sector and the public sector to mitigate risk and enhance the security and resilience of public gathering sites and special events.”

“DHS provides expert counsel and recommendations on protective measures that organizations of all sizes can implement to protect facilities and venues. These tools and resources are offered free to communities because the Department recognizes that communities are the first line of defense in keeping the public safe and secure.”

“CISA’s Hometown Security program provides access to tools and resources to support community security and resilience; DHS recognizes that communities are the first line of defense in keeping the public safe and secure. For more resources to help be prepared, visit the products below.”

CHURCHES BECOME WATCHDOGS IN THE TOWN

“In collaboration with several houses of worship and community partners (i.e., governmental entities that have a responsibility in the plan, including first responders, public health officials, and mental health officials), houses of worship can take steps to plan for these potential emergencies through the creation of an emergency operations plan (EOP).”

“FAITH BASED INFORMATION SHARING AND ANALYSIS SHARING” …OR SPYING ON CONGREGANTS? WHERE IS THE LINE DRAWN IN “INCULSIVE COMMUNITIES OF FAITH ?

“The FB-ISAO is a trusted community within the inclusive, community of faith. The ISAO and its members maintain primary focus on sharing timely, actionable and relevant information with an all-hazards approach as incidents affecting the community come in the form of physical threats, cybersecurity issues, health outbreaks, and a variety of natural disasters. The FB-ISAO’s mission is to provide members with information, analysis, and capabilities to help reduce risk while enhancing preparedness, security, and resilience.”

CYBER THREATS FOR CHURCHES?

“The faith-based community can be a target of cyber crime or incidents that deny access to information, render information unusable, or even disclose the personal information of congregants in the public domain.  CISA has created the STOP.THINK.CONNECT.™ national campaign and resources for small businesses, aimed at increasing the understanding of cyber threats and empowering the American public to be safer and more secure online. Cybersecurity is a shared responsibility. We each have to do our part to keep the Internet safe. When we all take simple steps to be safer online, it makes using the Internet a more secure experience for everyone.  “

RESOURCES INCLUDE 2017 STUDY AND TRAINING VIDEOS

“In this security guide, CISA analyzed ten years of targeted attacks on houses of worship to provide context to the enterprise-wide security recommendations. The case studies reviewed are examples of the breadth of threats a house of worship faces daily.

“Numerous studies estimate there are between 300,000 and 400,000 congregations in the United States. Many people believe or think a house of worship is a safe area where violence and emergencies cannot affect them. However, violence in a house of worship is not a new phenomenon, and many facilities are developing and updating security and emergency plans and procedures to ensure the safety and security of their congregations, visitors, staff, and facilities. “

“Today, houses of worship face a unique set of safety and security challenges that weren’t there just a few years ago.  This video offers a look at those challenges and demonstrates how law enforcement, houses of worship, and other partners can work together to report suspicious behavior and raise security awareness, while forging positive relationships within the community.”

HOW COVID PAVED THE WAY

COVID PPP MONEY FLOODED THE CHURCH IN 2020

“FAITH BASED SECURITY AMID COVID 19”

“On October 27, 2020, the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), The U.S. Department of Homeland Security, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), and the InfraGard National Capital Region held a Faith-Based Security and Safety Symposium webinar to discuss best practices and risk mitigation strategies for protecting houses of worship amid the COVID-19 pandemic.”

CONCLUSION

The one certainty with our churches taking government funding and being trained by DHS and FEMA to “keep a watchful eye” on their congregations – is that this is dangerous grand indeed and the church is giving up and losing something it can NEVER REGAIN. Meanwhile in the same era congregations are fighting against all out efforts to implement the tools of Cultural Marxism and Socialist Economics and “Social Justice” to indoctrinate our children even INSIDE our own churches. History has proven this NEVER ends well.

Pastors who are already led astray by deception in our seminaries will have no problem forming the “trusted” teams and passing out “the brown shirts” for security teams who ARE part of (DHS/FEMA wording ) ” a trusted community within the inclusive, community of faith” to use “The Power of Hello” to size up first time visitors or to keep a watchful eye out and report to the authorities about that annoying couple who NO LONGER fit into the ” trusted community within the inclusive, community of faith.”

In Short the church is no longer the church .The church has become something else and it’s mission is no longer the Gospel or the Great Commission to take the Gospel to the ends of the Earth .

Such a church is bound for and fit for nothing else than the DUNG HEAP.

Luke 14

Tasteless Salt Is Worthless
