Hello, and welcome, glad you’re with us. Tonight, we’re going to talk about the Cultural Marxists and their goal of mainstreaming the LGBTQ campaign inside your church and church denomination. I’m going to play a lot of very shocking audio and video clips for you tonight to help you understand what’s happening.
Perhaps you remember when we explained the agenda of Herbert Marcuse from the Frankfurt School. I want you to take a look at the screen. Here is the picture of Herbert Marcuse’s book. It’s entitled Eros and Civilization. What is Eros? Eros comes from the word ‘erotica.’ What is the goal? He openly stated his goal was to bring about a victim coalition.
As we’ve said in past programs, his goal was to bring about a coalition of the poor, minorities, immigrants, the sexual liberation movement, and feminists; and who did he say is attacking them or who is oppressing them? Conservative, white, evangelical capitalists.
Don’t forget, these guys openly wrote at the Frankfurt School about their hatred of not only capitalism but Christianity. They openly followed men like Karl Marx who said ‘my object in life is to dethrone God and destroy capitalism.’
They also followed Sigmund Freud. Sigmund Freud believed that the only truly sane individuals were those who had rejected Christianity. In fact, he openly wrote that those who were crazy were the Christians who had suppressed their natural inclinations for the lust of cannibalism, killing and incest. Cannibalism, killing and incest.
Those were the truly sane individuals because they had not suppressed their natural inclinations. Those who had suppressed their natural inclinations – like Christians – were crazy. Those who are practicing those natural inclinations of lust, cannibalism, murder, killing, incest are the truly sane ones. So you see what’s going on here?
The goal is to portray Christians as insane, mentally unstable; Christians, those with a phobia; Christians, whether it’s Islamophobia or Homophobia, the idea is to paint you as being unreasonable; having an unreasonable worldview, an unreasonable fear or phobia, thus having a mental problem.
Well, that was absolutely the goal of none other than Herbert Marcuse of the Frankfurt School, and he wrote about it in this book that I just showed you the screenshot of: Eros and Civilization.
Now tonight, we’re going to look at some very shocking video clips of how the evangelical world is now trying to mainstream the evangelical Cultural Marxist, if you will; groups like the “Together for the Gospel Coalition,” which I think, frankly, should be called “Together for the Marxist Gospel Coalition,” are trying to mainstream the LGBTQ community into the evangelical church.
Now first, I want you to take your Bibles and go with me, if you would, to 1 Corinthians, chapter 6. Let’s look at verse 9. “Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived. Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.”
Now look at verse 11, “Such were some of you,” but – what does it say? – “but such were some of you,” and then he goes on to say, “But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord, Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.”
What does he say there? Does he say ‘and such are some of you?’ Some of you are adulterers. You’re just jumping in with both feet and you’re just going to go ahead and identify as a serial adulterer. Did it say that you’re just going to go ahead and identify as a Christian adulterer, a Christian philanderer, a Christian thief, a Christian murderer? How about a Christian homosexual or a gay Christian?
Is that what the scripture tell us? Does the apostle say, ‘and such are you gay Christians?’ No, but such were some of you. Such were some of you but you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and in the Spirit of our God.
So my friends, let’s make it perfectly clear, these are those who are redeemed, who no longer practice this lifestyle. Now tonight I want to make it very clear. There’s a difference between someone who is tempted and someone who jumps in with both feet. You could be tempted to steal something but if you don’t steal it, guess what, you’re not a thief.
And so we have to differentiate between those who are tempted with sin and those who practice it, but we are not to identify with the old man, the old flesh. Yes, there is a battle that goes on within us between the old flesh and the new mind, but that’s the sanctification process. That’s Romans 6. Romans 6 makes it very clear that we’re dead to sin. Romans 6, 7 and 8 make this very clear. We’re dead to sin. We can live a victorious Christian life and we can die to ourselves because we were buried with Christ, and we were resurrected with Christ.
Through his death and resurrection, we can have victory over sin in our life, as we’re surrendering to Christ daily and we’re being washed in the spirit and the Word; sanctification, ongoing faithfulness and obedience.
So yes, there are those who struggle with temptation. Who doesn’t? The question is what temptation is it you struggle with? Pride? Is it greed? Is it anger? What is the issue you struggle with? Everyone has an issue, right, but you don’t identify yourself as a “Christian thief.”
You don’t identify yourself as a “Christian adulterer” because you realize that is your old life and you don’t jump in, practicing those things. You are a new man, a new creature in Christ. Old things pass away and behold, all things become new, but today, we have those who want to identify as gay Christians, and in fact this is now coming into the mainstreaming of evangelicalism.
Look at your screen there. This is a book that was written by a guy with the name of Nate Collins. It’s called, All But Invisible: Exploring Identity Questions at the Intersection of Faith, Gender and Sexuality.
Now what is this book all about? Well, all you have to do is go to Amazon and you can read the description of the book. Listen to what it says. “For many years, the intersection of gay identity and Christian identity in the United States was a virtual no-man’s land. In All But Invisible, author Nate Collins explores the cultural background of this claim and outlines a vision for Christian community in which straight and non-straight people might be reconciled, so they can flourish together in full awareness of their shared humanity.
Well, let’s just stop right there. Notice the words, ‘shared humanity.’ The idea being promoted here is if you do not embrace the ‘gay Christian,’ you’re somehow denying their humanity.
Well the description on Amazon goes on to say of this book, along the way, “Collins addresses several questions clustered around the topic of LGBTQ and Christian experience, such as what is the relationship between biblical concepts like desire, lust and temptation, and modern constructs, like sexual attraction and orientation.”
Modern constructs. I don’t know if you guys are getting a little tired of hearing about the modern constructs, but I’m getting a little tired of hearing about all these modern constructs, as these are things created by the society or these are definitions that just come out of nowhere.
By the way, the definition of marriage is not a modern construct. The definition of masculinity, femininity, the biblical roles of men, the biblical roles of women, these are not modern constructs.
We often see these descriptions of men and women laid out in the Scriptures created by God. The very definition of marriage is not a modern construct. It’s a God construct. The description on Amazon for this book goes on to say, “how do you reconcile aspects of identity that are important to gender and sexual minorities with Christin faith identity? How might new forms of kinship, such as intentional community or celibate partnerships make the blessings of family life more accessible to gay people in traditional faith communities?”
Again, notice what he’s talking about here. Nate Collins, the author of this book, All But Invisible, is talking about bringing the LGBTQ right into the church and making them a part of the faith community.
But is that what the apostle is saying here in 1 Corinthians, chapter 6? “But such are some of you?” No, but such were some of you. The description in Amazon goes on to say, “speaking from his own experiences as a gay man in a mixed orientation marriage.”
Now wait a minute, did you pick that up? ‘Speaking from his own experiences as a gay man in a mixed orientation marriage.’ What is a mixed orientation marriage? Well, he’s married to someone of the opposite sex but he’s still calling himself a gay man. He goes on to say Collins is committed to helping faith communities include LGBT people in the family life of the church.
He writes for believers who have a traditional sexual ethic and provide their renewed vision of gospel flourishing for gay, lesbian and other same sex attracted individuals. Notice again, I highlighted in green, ‘gospel flourishing.’ Why did I do that? I’ll tell you why, because these guys like to promote all kinds of Cultural Marxism and then somehow purify it because they throw in the word, ‘gospel.’ So now we’re going to talk about gospel flourishing in the context of the LGBT community: gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender. By the way, can you tell me why they left out the Q? Because it’s LGBTQ. So why have they left out the Q for Queer? Because they do not celebrate and identify as Queer. Why are they not going to go the whole way and celebrate LGBTQ? But they’re promoting the LGBT agenda.
Now, what do you know about Nate Collins? Many of you probably know very little about him. This is coming from a website called “All But Invisible.” Nate Collins, PhD, the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; has served as an instructor of New Testament Interpretation at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
Well, well, well. Do you want to guess who the President of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary is? None other than Al Mohler, the guy we’ve been warning you about for years. Al Mohler, who likes to work with the Acton Institute and is part of the Common Wheel Project that he’s been promoting – that is funded by the Liberal Kern Family Foundation, that work with all kinds of liberal groups, including the Institute for Advanced Cultural Studies that admits they are inspired by the Frankfurt School, the Cultural Marxist Frankfurt School.
Yes, Al Mohler is someone we’ve been warning you about for years, but apparently some people just are not catching on, and so they continue to invite the President of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, Al Mohler, who has Nate Collins teaching at his school, who identifies himself as a ‘gay Christian’ who is in a mixed orientation marriage, and yet people still want to grab Al Mohler and put him on their platform, year-in and year-out to teach shepherds.
I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to really question the discernment of some key folks in the old evangelical community whom we’ve all held up in high esteem. How much longer are they going to tolerate the rubbish being embraced and promoted by Al Mohler?
Let me play for you, if I could, some audio clips that might help you understand a little bit about the worldview of Nate Collins, who again is working over there at Al Mohler’s school. So let’s go to our first video clip of Nate Collins, in his own words.
Nate Collins: Growing up as a gay person, conservative Christianity was a source of blessing and discouragement. On the one hand, I had a father and mother that I knew loved me and were proud of me, but I also knew that I had intense shame, guilt about part of me that I couldn’t change.
When I was in youth group and my friends would joke about gay people, I couldn’t help but feel that they were laughing at me. [end quote]
All right. What does he say there? He’s talking about growing up as a gay Christian, and he had intense shame and he could not change. Wait a minute. What about the power of the Gospel to change lives?
But also notice what he said here. When his friends would joke about gay people, he was wondering if they were joking about him. You’re going to see some video clips tonight that led me to believe that everyone in this LGBTQ agenda is being set up to be the victim, and every time someone is not getting along with their agenda or embracing their agenda, then all of the sudden, you’ll see that they become the victim.
You’re going to see video clips tonight that promote over and over the LGBT folks as the victim and who is it that’s supposedly oppressing and victimizing them? The conservative evangelical Christians.
Now again, this guy, Nate Collins has written this book, All But Invisible, and according to what we just read, is teaching at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary – Al Mohler’s seminary – identifying as a gay man in a mixed orientation marriage.
A little confusing, is it not, but this is the new Cultural Marxist ideology, I believe, that is coming right into evangelicalism, and if you don’t accept it, and if you actually believe as the Apostle Paul wrote, ‘as such were some of you,’ if you don’t want to ‘ embrace the idea of a Christian serial adulterer, a gay Christian, a Christian thief, I mean are we really going to start throwing the word ‘Christian’ in front of all these former lifestyles. Well, take a look at your screen. This here is from this website, ‘All But Invisible.’
Notice what it says:
[Quote] Until now, seven years after Hill became the first conservative evangelical author to pen a memoir about his experience of being gay, Greg Coles is publishing his book, Single Gay Christian with endorsements from two prominent evangelical theologians: D.A. Carson and Ron Sider. [end quote]
Can I hold right there for a second? Do you guys know who D.A. Carson is?
D.A. Carson is one of the Founders and the President of the Gospel Coalition. So are you really shocked? If he’s hanging out with his other co-founder, cultural Marxist, Theistic Evolutionist, Tim Keller, would you really be shocked that D.A. Carson of the Gospel Coalition would be endorsing this book that you’re about to find out about by Greg Coles.
The other guy who endorsed it is Ron Sider. Last week we did a series of radio shows on Cultural Marxist, Ron Sider who worked with Jim Wallace and Tony Campolo all the way back in the ‘70s.
Ron Sider is an outright social justice pro-Cultural Marxist, pretty much pro-communist revolution in South America kind of guy, Ron Sider. Go listen to all the radio shows we’ve done of him and Jim Wallace, and Tony Campolo.
So these are two of the guys now endorsing this book; but notice how they’re really celebrating that they now have the endorsement of D.A. Carson. Why? Because D.A. Carson, for many, is considered to be a conservative Evangelical and one of the founders of the Gospel Coalition.
So I think they feel like they’ve made quite the headway. Let’s go back to that screenshot and continue reading. So it says that in particular, they got the endorsement of Ron Sider and D.A. Carson.
[quote] Carson’s endorsement in particular stands out for two reasons.
First, he’s a premier biblical scholar and theologian, as well as the President of the Gospel Coalition – one of the most respected conservative national Christian organizations in North America; but second, Carson actually refers to Coles as gay in his endorsement.
To my knowledge, this is the first time a ‘Together For The Gospel’ author has gone on record with using LGBT terminology to refer to a self-identified ‘gay Christian.’ [end quote]
Well first of all, let me clear up some misconceptions. The Gospel Coalition is not a conservative organization, despite what this guy says.
You’re not conservative when you’re doing this kind of stuff, and you’re not conservative when you’re founded by Cultural Marxist, theistic evolutionist, social justice, redefining-the-mission-and-purpose-of-the-church kinda guy like Tim Keller, but notice how excited they are.
Now again folks, the point is not that we haven’t all sinned. We have. The point is we don’t bring our baggage and sin of our past life and then add the word Christian to it because ‘such as were some of us;’ we’re not also downplaying the struggles and temptations that some people do indeed endorse.
What we’re saying is we can’t add the adjective ‘Christian’ to their former life, as such were some of you; not as such are some of you. So let’s celebrate it and have human flourishing in the Christian community as your old life or lifestyle, or your adjective of your lifestyle.
No. This is nothing more, as I said, phase one of bringing in the LGBT community into the evangelical church, who they will openly be practicing this lifestyle, and anyone that doesn’t go along with it, folks, will be set up as haters, as homophobic, as bigots, because remember what Herbert Marcuse said, who coined the phrase ‘make love, not war,’ one of the founders of the Frankfurt School.
He openly stated that the old way of revolution was old-fashioned. The new way is a diffused and dispersed disintegration of the system, but to do that, what did he say? We had to have a revolution that involved going after the entire cultural establishment.
That means going after the church, because who is it that has stood across the line, the battle line again and again in revolutions? The church has squarely stood across the battle lines of many revolutions. Today there is a cultural marxist revolution taking place in America and sadly, men many have respected have proven they were not worthy of such respect and they are now making a way for and giving theological cover for this cultural marxist revolution to occur within evangelicalism. Indeed, they are building the false church that will persecute, marginalize and vilify the church church.
Nate Collins and Gregory Coles are going to speak at a conference. It’s called Revoice. In fact, Nate Collins is listed on the Revoice Facebook page as the "president and founder" of Revoice. Well, what is Revoice? It’s about a new community, according to their website.
[quote] “Gather together with other gender and sexual minorities, and those who love them and experience a new kind of gospel community.” My friends, if they have a new kind of gospel, then they have a false gospel because there is no new gospel. There’s just the gospel. [end quote]
Anytime someone wants to put another word in front of the gospel – the social gospel, the prosperity gospel, the new gospel, the cultural gospel, other than maybe the glorious gospel – we got a problem.
There is no new gospel. The true gospel is thousands of years old, but notice they want to create a new gospel. There really is a blending, a third way, a Hegelian Dialectic process between the culture and Christianity.
It’s a cultural Christianity, folks. That’s what they’re doing. That’s what their own website says and this is where both Nate and Greg will be speaking for this Revoice conference. Now on their Facebook page, we find this:
[quote] “We envision a future Christianity where LGBT people can be open and transparent in their faith communities about their orientation and/or experience of gender disperia without feeling inferior to their straight sis gender, brothers and sisters; where churches not only utilize but also celebrate the unique opportunities that lifelong celibate LGBT people have to serve others.” [end quote]
Folks, again, if they’re celibate, then are they really LGBT? If they’re celibate, aren’t they as such were some of you? But see, here’s how they’re getting their foot in the door, folks. This is the camel’s nose under the tent.
Well, they’re celibate but they’re LGBT. No, if you’re a believer, old things have passed away. Behold, all things become new. You’re a new creation in Christ. That’s your old man. Now you are a new creation in Christ; as such, were some of you.
But see now they’re going to say but we’ve gotta embrace the LGBT, even though they’re celibate, we’ve gotta embrace them and celebrate them, but the next thing is going to be they’re not celibate anymore.
You see how this is going to work? Because if they’re really celibate, then why are they holding onto the title, LGBT or ‘gay Christian?’ The Revoice Facebook goes on to say “but also celebrate unique opportunities and lifelong celibate LGBT people have to serve others where Christian leaders boast about the faith of LGBT people who are living a sacrificial obedience for the sake of the kingdom and where LGBT people are welcomed into families, so they too can experience the joys, challenges and benefits of kinship.”
Folks, again, if they’re not practicing, then they’re not. They were, as such were some of you but you see how some of this is going to play out? Sadly, you’re going to be playing this TV show again in the future when this is finally full out on practicing LGBT in the so-called evangelical church. Apparently, Al Mohler's seminary employee, Nate Collins, is leading the way in this area of the cultural marxist agenda and yet we are to believe Al Mohler is somehow a conservative leader? I don't think so. We have warned about Mohler for years on many issues but maybe people will now actually see the truth of what we have been reporting.
