Would you want your pastor to share the platform with someone whose church programs and website promote a George Soros-funded amnesty, globalist organization? Or how about sharing the platform with a pastor who claims that Muslims and Christians worship the same God? Would you want your pastor aligned with another pastor whose church staff has attended a “bridge-building dialogue” conference set up by the Muslim Brotherhood? Hopefully, you answered “no” to all those questions, yet many leading “conservative” pastors are embracing a young man who does all of these things. In fact, your pastor may be reading his books and thinking he’s someone to be admired, but he’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing whose teaching, popularity, and influence you need to reckon with.
It Takes a Village (Church) to Undermine the Faith
I devoted one of my entire previous books, The Religious Trojan Horse, to exposing the influence of unbiblical teachers into evangelicalism, and now, I need to add another “Trojan” to the list: Neo-Calvinist Matt Chandler and his Village Church in Texas. “New Calvinists” like him, (and John Piper—see Chapter 10), are a great threat to the church. Not only that, they are also becoming a threat to national security.
I’ll explain why, but first let me be clear on one thing: I am not an Arminian, but I’m also not a Calvinist. I believe in the doctrine of confluence or concurrence. This is what Scripture teaches in Matthew. Jesus says, “Come all you who are weary and heavy laden.” But He also says, “All that the Father gives to me . . .” The doctrine of confluence reflects the idea that two streams come together as one—man’s responsibility, or free will, and God’s election. Scripture teaches that both pre-destination and free will, to use the standard terms, are true. I’m simply a Biblicist, and concurrence is what, I believe, the Word of God teaches.
I will also point out that I believe Matt Chandler and some of the other folks in his church I take issue with may be very sincere people. They may truly mean well, but I believe they are sincerely wrong in what they’re doing, teaching, and promoting.
So, what kind of things are Matt Chandler and these potentially well-meaning, but very wrong, people doing? To get at an issue like this, you can’t just look at the surface. That’s why I do such exhaustive research and dig deep for answers. One of my discoveries came in the form of an Islamic website for the Federation for Ethnic Understanding. The Federation hosted a meeting in November 2017 which included participants such as the president of the Islamic Society of North America and also Pastors Richard Brindley and Kyle Worley from the Village Church where Matt Chandler is the senior pastor. Another man who took part is Jason Clarke, the founder and executive director of Seek the Peace (more about Seek later).
So, two of Matt Chandler’s staff took part in this dialogue conceived, in part, by the Muslim Brotherhood. That is not only a religious issue, it’s also a national security issue. The Muslim Brotherhood is behind much of the world’s terrorist activity, so to support them in any way is extremely dangerous. And Chandler and his folks are not alone in their hazardous liaisons.
Leith Anderson of the National Association of Evangelicals, Richard Land, formerly with the Southern Baptist Convention, Jim Wallis, and many others for many years have been calling for amnesty for millions of illegals. They would not call it amnesty and would say they are opposed to amnesty, but in effect, I believe their policies are in fact calling for amnesty. Opening our borders is a means of destroying national sovereignty, a position applauded by the globalists. Globalists love the idea of no borders, and when we just let people come into the country illegally and do nothing about it—or worse, reward them with amnesty—we’re destroying our borders. With national sovereignty transformed into an “open” society, world government is the next step.
One of America’s most powerful globalists is George Soros. He formed the Open Society Foundation (I did an hour-long program on Soros, and you can find it on my site, SituationRoom.net) and through it promotes world government, an idea antithetical to biblical teachings. Scripture reveals that God calls for the drawing of borders, delineation of nations, and national sovereignty. The Antichrist and Satan are the ones who favor a world government, and they are well on their way to getting one in Europe. Ultimately, it could become a Eurocentric world government.
So, when you see people like George Soros funding groups such as the Evangelical Immigration Roundtable that seeks to destroy national sovereignty, you need to understand that, biblically speaking, this is demonic. It is part of a Satanic plan for setting up world government. And yet, along with many other neo-evangelicals, Matt Chandler, who is also president of the Acts 29 church-planting network, has signed onto the Evangelical Immigration Roundtable. Other evangelicals who have likewise thrown their support to this organization include Richard Land (president of the Southern Evangelical Seminary), Leith Anderson (president of the National Association of Evangelicals), and Jim Wallis (founder and editor of Sojourners magazine).
That may help explain why The Village Church website lists “partner” organizations such as Seek the Peace, an organization dedicated to bringing Syrian and Iranian immigrants into the United States as “refugees.” The Village Church website features a Seek the Peace article called “Jesus Was a Refugee,” intended to pull at the heart strings about the “cause” of refugees coming to America. The title of the article itself is misleading, if not an outright lie. Jesus was not a refugee in any sense of the word, but that just shows the lengths these people will go to in order to make a case for their unbiblical positions. The earthly parents of Jesus did not stay in Egypt, but eventually returned. Are America’s “refugees” going to return to their homeland? Did the family of Jesus break the law by entering Egypt? Did the family of Jesus receive welfare—which is theft—by taking from one and giving to another? Did the family of Jesus get free public education at the expense of taxpayers as illegal refugees? Obviously, all the answers are “no.” The comparison of Jesus with current-day refugees is asinine.
On the Seek the Peace Facebook page on January 20, 2016, the organization posted its concern that the US Senate was planning to vote on a bill called The American Security Against Foreign Enemies, or SAFE, Act—which Seek the Peace worried would halt the resettlement of Syrian and Iraqi refugees, this after terrorist attacks in Europe and particularly Paris were carried out by immigrants from Syria. And rightly, many of our representatives, governors, and other elected officials were calling for a halt to the importing of more Syrians and Iranians into America until we could properly vet them to find out exactly who they are and what their objective is in coming here.
But Seek the Peace did not want that to happen. In fact, Sarah Long, Groups Minister at Matt Chandler’s Village Church posted an article called “Engaging Muslims.” In it, she writes about this ‘Islamophobia’: “With Islamophobia on the rise, countering the dehumanization of Muslims is an unpopular stance, but it is the right one. We should not be people motivated by fear.” By talking about Islamophobia, she’s using talking points supplied by the Muslim Brotherhood. Islamophobia is a term created in the early 1990s by the International Institute of Islamic Thought, a front group for Muslim Brotherhood.
You’ll recall that the purpose of Islamophobia is to silence anyone who speaks truth about Islam. If you try to tell the truth about what the Qur’an and the Hadith teach, then you are labeled a fear monger or as someone having an unreasonable fear—a phobia. The pejorative term is used to impugn the credibility of those who tell the truth about the worldview of Islam. Even more, Long goes on to call for Christians to visit a local mosque. I believe some people share the platform with men like Matt Chandler because he provides the opportunity to speak at very large conferences like the “Together for the Gospel” conference that draws thousands of attendees. The “market opportunity” at conferences like this is so extreme that to have an exhibit booth there costs thousands of dollars.
I call people like this “bridgers.” They are attempting to establish a bridge between the conservative world and the more liberal world of evangelicalism by sharing the platform with them. But a bridge to liberalism? They certainly should know better.
Wolves in Globalist Clothing
To examine this issue further from Scripture, let’s go to Acts 20. In verse 29, Paul tells us this:
[quote] I know that after my departure, savage wolves will come in among you not sparing the flock. And from among your own selves, men will arise, speaking perverse things to draw away the disciples after them. Therefore, be on alert, remembering that night and day for a period of three years, I did not cease to admonish everyone with tears. [end quote]
In accord with this scripture, those of us who see the situation for what it is are called to watch. We’re to warn, and we’re to do it with humility, tears, weeping, and conviction—watch, warn, and weep. I have no desire to destroy the individuals involved. I want only to destroy the arguments raised up against the principles of the Lord.
We see a similar warning in Jude 3:
"For certain persons have crept in unnoticed, those who were long beforehand marked out for this condemnation, ungodly persons who turn the grace of our God into licentiousness and deny our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ."
I’m concerned that many pastors today are allowing wolves to come in. In some cases, they’re even promoting the wolves to their organizations and on their church websites. This gives the wolves credibility they don’t deserve.
Those who know better should admonish them, not simply ignore the danger they pose, or worse, participating with them at conferences such as Together for the Gospel whose speakers include other troubling people, including John Piper. Piper preaches a false gospel and teaches hedonism—“Christian hedonism.” He also teaches that we cannot determine what is good or evil according to commandment keeping, despite the fact that the Bible says, “Without the law, I would not have known what sin is” (Romans 7:7).
How can pastors join with men whose churches promote organizations that are the very ones that Jude and the apostle Paul warn us to be aware of? In Romans 16, we’re called to identify these people, to mark their doctrine, and to avoid them. But instead, many run toward them and speak at conferences that promote such agendas as white privilege, Black Lives Matter, and George Soros globalism. This is not how we should be working in concert with such people. John 2:9-11 tells us that if we partner with false teachers, we are taking part in their evil deeds. Therefore, those promoting a false teacher share in their unbiblical work.
Ironically, some of these same people pick and choose those whom they will condemn. For instance, many have rightly decried Rick Warren for his work over the years, but they’re not doing anything much different than some of the causes Rick Warren has supported.
Churches like Matt Chandler’s church are linking to organizations setting the stage for a Eurocentric world government and the coming of an antichrist figure. You see, God’s plan calls for national sovereignty while Satan promotes globalism. For a time, Satan will seem to win, and there will be a Eurocentric world government led by the Antichrist.
Too Much in Common
Globalism tends to embrace “tolerance” for all beliefs which aids organizations like the Muslim Brotherhood. The Brotherhood certainly favors global government, but its preferred form is a global Islamic caliphate.
A front for the Muslim Brotherhood, one of the most insidious organizations in the United States today, is the Islamic Society of North America. It co-sponsors meetings with conciliatory-sounding organizations like the Foundation for Ethnic Understanding in order to promote Muslim-Jewish relations. But how can an organization with ties to the Muslim Brotherhood truly be interested in reconciliation with non-Muslims? You’ll recall that the Brotherhood was founded in 1928 by al-Banna who worked closely with al-Husseini, a high-ranking Muslim cleric who was the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem. Al-Husseini was involved in creating the Nazis’ Final Solution, which ultimately slaughtered five million Jews and six million non-Jews during World War II. The real tragedy today is that many Christian leaders jump on board with the ISNA agenda.
The impact on individual Christians can begin with suggestions such as Sarah Long’s, that believers visit a local mosque. But why would any responsible Christian leader encourage Christians to do that? Most Christians do not know enough about their Bible, much less enough about Islam, to talk with a Muslim at a mosque and not be completely brainwashed or deceived. Remember that under Islam, it is acceptable for a Muslim to lie to a non-Muslim in order to gain the upper hand. This is called “taqiyya.”
To make matters worse, Long admonishes Christians to “talk about Jesus, but carry no agenda. . . Follow the Spirit’s lead, not your agenda. New relationships are not the place to debate in-depth theology.” But there is no way anyone can talk about the Jesus of the Bible and not have a biblical agenda. Theology is the study of God, and we cannot talk truthfully about theology or God without discussing God incarnate when we engage a lost person. Long, though, doesn’t seem to care. She says, “God coming to us in the form of man is an essential to Christianity, but very offensive to Muslims, and thus, not a good place to begin a relationship.” So, we’re to downplay the deity of Jesus Christ? I’m afraid not.
But can we at least confront some of the untruths of Islam? Not according to Sarah Long: “Don’t criticize Mohammed, the Qur’an, or anything about the Islamic faith.” Not that I advocate being confrontational, but you can address essential issues carefully. The Bible calls us to destroy every argument raised up against the principles of the Lord, including the false teaching of someone like Mohammed, and what we find in the Hadith and the Qur’an.
Former Muslim Shahram Hadian says that positive confrontation is exactly what we should be doing, and so does Usama Dakdok. They recommend pointing out the inconsistencies in the Qur’an, its outright errors, the lies of Mohammed, the unregenerate life of Mohammed, and his harsh worldview. That way, Muslims can be exposed to the deceptive, demonic nature of Islam. Yet, Sarah Long bolsters her unwise suggestions by adding, “Don’t assume you know everything about what Muslims believe or that all Muslims share the exact same beliefs.” But I say: if you’re a Muslim, you believe what’s in the Qur’an, and that’s a serious, eternal-life-threatening problem.
There’s a popular misconception that Islam falls into one of two camps: moderate or extremist. But the truth is, they are just Islam. If someone follows the Qur’an, he or she is an Islamist, and there is no such thing as a moderate Islamist. There are moderate Muslims who do not follow the Qur’an, such as Shahram Hadian’s father who was a pork-eating, beer-drinking Muslim who fled Iran before the fall of the Shah because he did not want to live under Islamic rule or Sharia. The Qur’an specifically says those who don’t follow the Qur’an are hypocrites and worthy to be killed. It does not consider “moderates” to be true Islamists. Therefore, we can say that there are moderate Muslims, but there is no such thing as a moderate Islamist.
Another bridge-building bit of advice from Sarah Long goes like this: “Respect their fasting during Ramadan by not eating or drinking around your Muslim friends during the holiday.” And why would I do that? Why would I not go about my life? I’ll certainly be kind to my Muslim neighbor, but I’m not going to honor his or her sacrifice of not eating as a part of the worship of a false God.
At the end of her article, Long links to other organizations including Seek the Peace and Peace Catalyst International which, in turn, lists Sarah Long as a Texas representative and team member of the organization. PCI reportedly focuses on bridging the gap between Muslim and Christian communities in the American South, but it’s simply using interfaith dialogue as a takeover tactic by Muslims. Muslim Brotherhood scholar Sayyid Qutb declared:
[quote] The chasm between Islam and Jahiliyyah [the society of unbelievers] is great, and a bridge is not to be built across it so that the people on the two sides may mix with each other, but only so that the people of Jahiliyyah may come over to Islam. [end quote]
The bridge to Islam goes only one way. IFD intends to bring Christians to the side of Islam, but never to allow Muslims to cross over to Christianity.
The executive director, co-founder, and chairman of Peace Catalyst International is Rick Love. Love earned his Ph.D. in Intercultural Studies from Fuller Theological Seminary, a seminary that has a whole division to study the Muslim Brotherhood and Islam. Love, who calls himself a global citizen, also serves on the Global Advisory Council for Religious Peace Builders. Love’s website says he is an enthusiastic supporter of the Yale document, “A Common Word. (ACW)” This document claims that Muslims and Christians worship the same God. Love effervesces about “hope” the document provides:
[quote] Something extraordinary is happening between Muslims and Christians! One hundred and thirty-eight Muslim scholars from virtually every Islamic country or region in the world, representing every major school of Islamic thought, have invited Christians to dialogue. [end quote]
These Muslim scholars maintain that the common ground between Muslims and Christians centers on the commands to love God and love our neighbor. They seek to join hands with Christians in the important work of reconciliation between our communities.
This invitation is referred to as “A Common Word between Us and You.”
Love goes on to say, “I believe that Muslims worship the true God.” On his website under the heading: “Frequently Asked Questions about Christian-Muslim Relations,” Rick declares, “both faiths affirm the one true God, Creator of the heavens and the earth.” Why would Matt Chandler’s church link to PCI if it believes Christians and Muslims worship the same God? There is no good reason.
Love’s support of the Yale document is not simply an isolated example of his bridging to Islam. Some of the connections are more insidious. For example, the website for CAIR (Council on American-Islamic Relations) indicates support from Harambee Church pastor, Michael Ly, who is also a vice president of Peace Catalyst International. The site quotes Ly: “It’s truly an honor to be part of an effort to build bridges of understanding between evangelicals and Muslims.”
Love has also been listed as sitting on the advisory board of Charity and Security Network, an organization promoted by globalist institutions such as the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Rockefeller Brothers Fund. The advisory board of the Charity and Security Network includes the legal director of the American Civil Liberties Union, the organization founded by communist Roger Baldwin. Another of the advisory board members is from Islamic Relief, a pro-Islamic group.
So, Rick Love is a troubling individual, theologically speaking. And yet, Matt Chandler’s church website links to and promotes this man’s organization, and reportedly one of his own staff people is the Texas representative for Peace Catalyst. Chandler’s church website also promotes and links to International Rescue Committee which Breitbart News describes this way:
[quote] The International Rescue Committee, an open borders-backing NGO (non-government organization) fronted by former labor foreign secretary, David Miliband, has been accused of hushing up allegations of more than 30 crimes. . . The International Rescue Committee is one of the charities closely linked to George Soros’ push to drive aliens into European Union nations. Not only does the pro-migration body receive funding from the globalist billionaire’s Open Society Foundation, but Soros has selected the IRC to create principles that would guide the Hungarian American’s $500 million investment in migrant-related initiatives. [end quote]
The International Rescue Committee is also a federal refugee resettlement contractor and receives significant financial backing from globalist George Soros.
David Miliband is the president and CEO of International Rescue, and his background is eye-opening. The April 29, 2016 issue of The Telegraph included an article by reporter Barney Henderson entitled “David Miliband to Be Given Top U.S. Government Job if Hillary Clinton Becomes President.” The title alone says a great deal about the worldview of David Miliband; he’s compatible with Hillary Clinton. But it gets worse. In 2009, The Telegraph ran an article called “David Miliband Backs Tony Blair as European Union President.” That he backs Tony Blair clearly implies that Miliband is a Fabian Socialist. What’s more, he’s a member of Britain’s Labour Party.
And how did the Labour Party begin? It was birthed out of the Fabian Socialist Society. The goal of the Fabian Socialist Society is revolution by evolution over time. And if we go back to the Fabian window, created by George Bernard Shaw in the early 1900s, what do we see? Two men banging on a hot globe, the earth. In the image, the world is on fire, in a crisis. And the motto at the top of the window says, “Remold it nearer to the heart’s desire.” It means that Fabians plan to use global crises to remold the world, especially by destroying national sovereignty. World government is their end-game.
The window also shows a wolf in sheep’s clothing. (Sound familiar? Remember Paul’s warning in Acts 20 about the wolf in sheep’s clothing?) The Fabian Socialist Society openly admits that they use religion—the sheep’s clothing—to achieve their ends. So, here’s the kicker about the connection between the Fabians and Britain’s Labour party. Apparently, it’s no secret (at least not a very well kept one).
In the 1970s, the famous stained-glass window was stolen. Recovered in 2005, a dedication of the window at the George Bernard Shaw Library followed the next year. The installation of the Fabian window featured keynote speaker Tony Blair, who at the time was Britain’s prime minister and head of the Labour Party. In his speech, Blair explained that the Labour Party was birthed from the Fabian Socialist Society.
So, David Miliband, whose organization is promoted on the website of Matt Chandler’s Village Church, is a Labour Party official who almost became head of the Labour Party. A December 22, 2015 article in Quartz explains why Miliband is such a “darling” in Great Britain: “At 29, Miliband, an Oxford-educated political analyst, became head of policy for Prime Minister Tony Blair, making him the youngest foreign secretary in 30 years. It was often said that Miliband was Prime Minster material himself.” Although David Miliband was expected to succeed Tony Blair as the head of the Labour Party (as reported by Britain’s The Guardian newspaper), he was defeated, ironically, by his younger brother Ed. Yet, Miliband’s influence only seems to have grown. The title of the Quartz explains that “The Man Who Planned to Succeed Tony Blair Is Doing Far More for Refugees Outside of Politics.” Miliband is now head of an organization called International Rescue which receives government funds to resettle Syrians and refugees here in America, even though Miliband is from Great Britain.
Miliband does an excellent job of promoting his agenda on this side of the Atlantic. The New York Times, on January 27, 2017, included an article by Miliband entitled, “Donald Trump’s Un-American Refugee Policy.” There’s something odd, of course, about an Englishman criticizing the president of the United States for being “un-American,” but obviously, he just doesn’t like Donald Trump’s policy. And it’s not very difficult to connect the dots as to why. After all, he is president of an organization contracted to receive copious amounts of money under the Obama administration to bring Syrians and Iranians here as part of the Muslim Brotherhood’s strategy to destroy America from within.
So, the worldview of people promoted on Matt Chandler’s Village Church website are not always what you would hope. But there’s even more to be disturbed about Matt Chandler and his influence.
Books, Singers, Articles, and Other Forms of Spiritual Poison
According to an August 12, 2014 tweet from Matt Chandler: “I think @annvoskamp is becoming one of my favorite writers.” Ann Voskamp is best known for her book called, One Thousand Gifts. In it, she talks about her relationship with God in terms so erotic that I could not read it on my radio or television programs, and I will not quote it here.
Chandler also seems to be something of a music fan. In another tweet, dated October 1, 2017, he says, “Praying this over all of us this morning!!” And what, exactly, is he praying for all of us? He was referring to a song from Jesus Culture, a band formed at Bethel Church in Redding, California. Bethel is pastored by Bill Johnson, one of the most dedicated New Apostolic Reformation false teachers in America. Johnson seriously believes in glory dust, glory clouds, and feathers falling. He also promotes NAR beliefs in modern-day prophets and apostles. He and his people are so troubling that I’ve done a series of programs on Jesus Culture, and as part of that, I have video of Jesus Culture members teaching young people how to take trips to heaven. They also encourage people to receive visits from angels and get words of knowledge, and Matt Chandler promotes them!
Chandler even posts a link to an article by Ann Voskamp in which she praises Mother Theresa and provides a direct link to Mother Theresa’s book, No Greater Love. Although she enjoys a widely respected reputation for good works, Mother Theresa is hardly someone to rely on for good theology. A Roman Catholic, she believed that it doesn’t matter whether you are a Christian, a Hindu, a Buddhist, or a Muslim. Everybody, she assured us, would end up in heaven. She was a universalist. Yet, Ann Voskamp and Matt Chandler promote this book by a clearly unbiblical thinker.
Through an article on its website, The Village Church also promotes the work and teaching of Dallas Willard. Another over-the-edge “Christian leader,” Willard promotes things like contemplative prayer, breath prayers, and centering prayers.
Another article called “Our Motivation for Social Justice” links to Tim Keller’s book Generous Justice. In The Coming Religious Reich, I provide an in-depth review of Keller’s book, so suffice it to say that other fitting titles would be something like Generous Socialism or Generous Social Justice. In the book, he promotes a thinly veiled socialistic plan for “renewing” and “reweaving” our culture to produce “cultural transformation.”
These people have a theology that thinks God requires us to remake and remold the culture. But: Wrong-o! We live in a sinful world, plagued by the effects of sin, and things will not be renewed until Christ returns at the Second Coming and sets up His kingdom. You see, people like Chandler and Keller do not have a proper eschatology, even though it drives their theology.
Chandler also chooses some questionable heroes to emulate. In a 2018 article entitled, “What We Can Learn from Martin Luther King, Jr.?” he said, “We can learn from his love for and application of the Word of God.” The problem is that King’s “application of the word of God” was badly tainted by communist influence. In Chapter 12, we’ll take an in-depth look at the problems with Martin Luther King, Jr., but he did not take a biblical approach to his work. He surrounded himself with communists, and even the speech for which he was most famous—“I Have a Dream”—was plagiarized from a speech given by a black Republican years earlier. More than 20 years ago, I had my own research into King’s communist leanings confirmed by someone with firsthand knowledge. I had dinner in North Carolina with a pastor and former FBI agent after a church service for which I had been the guest speaker. I mentioned that my research led me to believe that Martin Luther King, Jr., kept close company with communists, and the former FBI man responded, “I know for a fact he was surrounded by communists . . . because Martin Luther King, Jr.’s chauffeur was my informant.”
There’s a lot I could say about Martin Luther King, Jr., (and will say it in Chapter 12), but one of them is not that he had a love for and application of the Word of God. Nevertheless, Matt Chandler calls him a brother. We have no evidence that Martin Luther King, Jr., understood the true gospel, but that doesn’t seem to bother Chandler.
On a related issue: Matt Chandler also promotes “white privilege,” but as you may know, white privilege is simply a talking point of communists. White privilege is a thinly veiled use of political correctness to promote an agenda that is anti-family, anti-father, and anti-capitalist.
At the 15th annual White Privilege Conference that took place in 2014 in Madison, Wisconsin, a roster of pro-communist people claimed that white privilege is anyone who has a capitalist worldview (I shared a video of this on one of my programs). Their goal is to uproot capitalism, and since racial sensitivity is a popular concept, they blur the lines between racism (an abhorrent attitude) and capitalism (the most biblically sound system of economics). If you’re a capitalist, so the spin goes, you’re a racist because you’re too much a part of the white privilege society that fostered the United States’ growth and prosperity. And Matt Chandler parrots these talking points.
Yet, people gather at conferences like Together for the Gospel. The 2008, 2010, 2012, 2014, 2016, 2018 line-up included John Piper, Thabiti Anabyawile (a strong proponent of the Black Lives Matter movement), and Al Mohler. All of these people promote white privilege, Black Lives Matter, Martin Luther King, Jr., and even Nelson Mandela (you’ll recall that Mohler once declared Mandela a “hero”). Other men that joined the platform at Together for the Gospel included Ligon Duncan and John MacArthur.
Speaking ill of Martin Luther King, Jr., I realize, can be problematic because I certainly agree with some of the things he was trying to accomplish, but we cannot agree with his worldview, his morality, or the people he was surrounded by and being used by, or his “Christian socialism.” His supporters all seem to be part of the new brand of Calvinism, which makes this a very serious issue, and decrying them is difficult in many ways. Certainly, I support Matt Chandler’s strong pro-life stance. Yet, that’s not the whole story, as I’ve said. Matt Chandler, his Village Church, and these other neo-Calvinists have become the religious Trojan horse I warned about in my book of the same name.
Raising red flags like this is not fun, but I believe we have to warn the church that globalists, internationalists, communists, and Fabians are on the move. They want world government, they want to destroy America, and by their own admission, they use religion to do that. That’s why they infiltrate both the left and the right. We’ve been warned by the Word of God that this will take place, and that’s where marching orders for all faithful believers come from.
