Virtually everyday some parent contacts this writer with concerns about what they see happening in their children’s Christian Schools. Christian teens are coming home defending radical social movements like BLM and LGBTQ and complaining to their parents that they have been raised in “White Privilege ” and Systemic Racism”. Some students are singing the virtues of Islam and defending the rights of Muslim Refugees and Mosque building in the U. S. saying real Christians should support these “justice issues” because they are at the “heart of the gospel”.
This past week marked the annual Immigration Coalition’s National Conference. An interesting and revealing line up of partners and sponsors participated in the Oct 22-23 2020 event. But prior to the event these partnerships had LONG AGO formed between Open Societies organizations , government funding and non profits operating as what Capitol Research.org dubbed a ” A Billion-Dollar Taxpayer Funded Advocacy Industry” for immigrants and refugees FLOODING INTO AMERICA.
Please do NOT join IMB and do not let your children to be taken in to a vision casting effort that would include partners who wish to make your children into global citizens and who accept the Global Sustainability Goals/ Agenda 2030 as Gospel mission. Please teach your children and grandchildren the Word of God and to discern the times BECAUSE clearly International Missions Board leaders are not discerning the difference between global goals and the Gospel.
Black Lives Matter is admittedly a Cultural Marxist trained organization whose followers have now been demonstrating, rioting, burning, looting and making their demands known in America’s streets for months now with no end in site. Hundreds of millions in support dollars from corporate America have fueled the movement which is rooted, not in the historic civil rights movement of the 50’s and 60’s but boastfully is moving to “disrupt the civil rights movement” with it’s own radical roots of feminist lesbianism and transgenderism and the full LGBTQ range of sexual liberation which have redefined global human rights. YET none of the radical reality of BLM has deterred conservative ( by reputation at least) Baptist leaders from stepping up and offering public support and even, in some cases, marching with radicals and their sympathizers in the streets.
John MacAthur has recently emerged as champion for churches rights to reopen after the Covid-19 fears had shut down churches across the nation. With appearances on Fox News programs Tucker Carlson and Shannon Bream, MacArthur has grabbed headlines and the praise of men for his “bravery” and “standing up” for America’s houses of worship. BUT the idea of counseling rebellion against the government orders not to reopen seems less than “authentic” and down right hypocritical coming from a pastor whose church apparently applied for millions of Covid -19 Cares Act PPP from the Small Business Administration.
For years those who followed Tim Keller closely have been warning about his true left ward political and social justice leanings. Now even the most skeptical fan of Christianity’s ” great thinker” can see where he stands and what values drive the man behind the theological mask. Keller’s influential organization The Gospel Coalition, co-founded with D A Carson, is a theologically emergent, politically left of center, social justice (false) gospel movement. Keller’s work with Bio-Logos seeks to combine EVOLUTION and CREATION. It is funded by the Templeton Foundation which promotes the same goals and seeks to endorse and fund “religion that adheres to no sacred text”, Bio-Logos shows Keller’s deep theological confusion yet no fact to date has confirmed the reality of his broader self contradiction more than his recent surfacing as an “ELDER” for the & Campaign.
The movement behind Revoice “LGBTQ Thriving in Historic Christian Tradition” ( aka conservative churches and denominations) is alive and well. One of the primary thought leaders is Mark Yarhouse. Yarhouse work is rapidly bringing the evangelical church into full synchronization with the American Psychological Association on the issues of LGBTQ or Sexual Orientation & Gender Identity (SOGI) .
