Recently this site reported on the rise of the “Christian Economic Forum ” as a “Davos for Christian Leaders” pushing “Faith Driven Investing” toward Global Sustainability Goals with World Economic Forum and BlackRock Inc. leaders and thinkers in tow. If these efforts succeed the plan will grab a lions share of the the boasted $150 Trillion in wealth “in the hands of Christians” in the West. If the church and believers in mass buy in – then the giant sucking sound will the God entrusted resources of Christians and the churches being exploited in real time away from true Gospel eternal focus and on to “building a better world” and “building back better “as the globalist see it. If this is not the case then it behoves those selling the idea to prove they have no connection to WEF/ BlackRock/ Agenda 2030/Urbanization and the 17 UN Global Sustainability Goals. That denial is going to an impossible task given how openly evangelical leaders like Tim Keller, Ed Stetzer, Rick Warren,David Platt, J D Greear, Francis Collins and now many local pastors have aligned themselves with these partners and their goals.
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.
No one in Southern Baptist churches has any idea how much money is flooding into the SBC coffers for Afghan Refugee resettlement through NAMB /IMB or it’s Clarkston Georgia -Send Relief Center and others ( there are dozens open and or planned) across the nation. No one knows because NONE OF THE SBC LEADERSHIP are talking about the funding or the government partnerships, or that most of the refugees are in fact not persecuted Christians fleeing the Taliban but Muslims being patriated as “New Americans ” and labeled as the Christians “New Neighbors”.
Virtually no one in the evangelical press has been willing to call out Marvin Olasky for WALTZING AMONG THE LEFTIST ELITE except WORLDVIEW WEEKEND, Brannon Howse and this author at Thirty Pieces of Silver. But now Olasky has begun to reap his sowing his wild oats in the mushy middle with other evangelical leaders.
You may have read about the “Neighborly Faith” movement on Christian Campuses to teach about the Muslim faith to young Christians on Christian Campuses . Now some of the same Baptist are offering the latest movement in interfaith interaction to “build community”.
Few would doubt that the response to the Covid 19 virus and vaccine roll out is highly coordinated from deep within the progressive machine. Virtually no thinking person anywhere on planet Earth would dispute that the Pandemic has been politicized and used to alter the 2020 election process and outcome. Covid responses have also reshaped everyday life and the economy on a global scale.
David Platt is the popular pastor who heads the “Radical ” and “Secret Church” brands among other movements. Platt is currently the pastor of McLean Bible Church in Virginia. He became popular as a pastor of the troubled Church at Brookhills in Birmingham Alabama when it’s founding pastor became embroiled in a moral failure. Platt’s rise to the senior pastors position of the 4200 member Southern Baptist mega church made him the “youngest megachurch pastor in history” according to the New York Times.
In 2020 the world had its first glimpse of the modern day Pandemic Industrial Complex in action as the Covid -19 report spread throughout the world. It is fair to say that life has yet to return to normal and for some powers behind this GLOBAL effort -it never will again. Hoards of funding and powerful entities like the World Economic Forum,The World Bank, The World Health Organization have seen the pandemic and the economic impact of it as the "last great chance" for mankind ,for a "Great Reset" of the global economy for a "more equitable world" and for saving the planet from "Global Warming". (See World Economic Forum :The Great Reset for more information and the talking points).
(NOTE: This author is a Southern Baptist and ordained SBC minister who has worked as a reporter for Worldview Weekend reporting LIVE at the SBC annual meetings since 2018. Worldview Weekend (WVW) is a major news outlet founded and led by author researcher and journalist Brannon Howse. WVW Network promotes news with a Christian worldview and historic context. Howse/ WVW also just helped launch FRANKSPEECH.COM with Mike Lindell ( My Pillow CEO and LINDELL TV.COM ) promoting Free Speech in America.
The clear and undeniable reality we are facing is an unprecedented IN THE 2020 Presidential Election. Confusion and uncertainty abound. It is backed up by a massive, coordinated, and no doubt well funded propaganda effort which has all but taken over and eclipsed both the investigation of facts and free speech among media outlets and everyday Americans on their own social media. The arrogance of these organizations to censor free speech even extend to President Donald Trump and to his legal team and witnesses testifying before our courts.
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) .
