Christian Leaders Warn of Soros-Funded “Hijack” of Christian Left

With George Soros' funding, leftists are infiltrating and misdirecting Christian institutions.

By The Stream Published on October 4, 2016

A coalition of 630 influential Christian leaders, mostly evangelicals, spearheaded by Kelly Monroe Kullberg and Dr. Alveda King, has called on “progressive” Christians to “repent.” It asks them to atone for “work that often advances a destructive liberal political agenda.” That agenda, the appeal’s writers suggest, is allied with and partly funded by billionaire secular leftist George Soros, who uses the profits of his past currency speculation to promote radical causes around the world.

The authors note:

As recent leaked documents confirm, and as Rev. Jim Wallis of Sojourners eventually admitted, wealthy, anti-Christian foundations, following the lead of billionaire George Soros’s Open Society Foundation, fund and “rent” Christian ministers as “mascots” serving as surprising validators for their causes. The consequent realities include injury to countless people, the Church, the family, nation and the global Church including many martyrs.

When it comes to progressive Christians who were willing to take Soros’ money, the authors are willing to name names:

At a time when many Christian ministries are struggling, a few of the Soros network “faith” and “interfaith” grantees are Jim Wallis of Sojourners, Richard Cizik’s New Evangelical Partnership, Telos, J Street to malign Israel, Catholics in Alliance for the Common Good, Faithful America and Gamaliel. Faith in Public Life has worked to “counter” Christians and the Tea Party in the media and, with PICO, advocate for amnesty, mass Islamic migration, even seeking to influence the visit and priorities of Pope Francis himself. Billions of additional dollars to “Christian VOLAGs” for large scale “refugee” and migrant resettlement comes from the Obama administration.

Joining “faith” fronts, Soros also funds thousands of other collaborators and projects that suggest his goal is to demoralize America (and Europe). The list includes: film studios and hundreds of media outlets; attempts to control the internet; racial and gender agitation; euthanasia; drug legalization and “injection zones;” abortion and the “sex worker” industry; Al Gore’s Climate campaign; pro-Palestinian and anti-Israel projects; the rights of jihadists and Sharia advocates.

In the ironic rhetoric of compassion, Soros and friends also fund mass immigration followed by votingrights” and redistricting schemes, while financing the campaigns of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton. (Soros is a major donor to the Democratic Party and co-chairman of Ready for Hillary PAC.)

The authors of the statement cited Martin Luther King, Jr. as an alternative model for Christian social engagement:

As Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. taught, “In contrast to ethical relativism, Christianity sets forth a system of absolute moral values.”  He wrote, “We need to recapture the gospel glow of the early Christians who were non-conformists. … Their powerful gospel put an end to such barbaric evils as infanticide. … Finally, they captured the Roman Empire for Jesus Christ.”

The authors lay out a stark catalog of the consequences for America and the church of eight years of progressive-dominated government under Barack Obama:

  1. A growth industry trafficking in human baby organs and body parts — funded and defended by the Democratic Party.
  2. The abandonment of a biblical view of marriage that protected and liberated children and adults from centuries of pagan slavery, poverty, polygamy and non-life-giving sexuality.
  3. The transgender agenda imposed by Obama-government edict, including gender re-education to be forced on our citizens, businesses, schools, military and churches.
  4. Doubling of our national debt, economic stagnation and increased welfare dependency.
  5. Increased minority unemployment, poverty and violent inner city lawlessness, with an accompanying loss of opportunity, self-determination and family stability.
  6. Heightened racial division and tension, and the growing phenomenon of paid demonstrators being recruited and dispatched to instigate protests that often become riots.
  7. Open borders and ‘sanctuary’ cities increasing drugs, disease, crime, gangs and terrorism.
  8. Forced refugee resettlement in hundreds of American cities without citizen consent, mandated by the federal government in collusion with the United Nations. “Refugees” are primarily non-assimilating Muslims, while authorities reject persecuted Christians.
  9. Hostility towards Judeo-Christian religious liberty in our courts, media and universities including the suppression of conservative speakers, free thought and moral education.
  10. The widespread, political use of the IRS to intimidate conservative, patriotic and Christian groups that disagree with the current political establishment.
  11. The statement also cites Hillary Clinton’s now-infamous 2015 speech at the Women in the World Summit, where she averred that religious beliefs “have to be changed” to accept abortion on demand. With that statement, the signers say, Clinton “was openly declaring war on Christian believers and the Church.”

The evangelical appeal urged fellow Christians “to question the true intentions of persons or organizations that receive money from Soros and other billionaire globalists,” noting that the “hostility of the Progressive political agenda to biblical faith is foreign to the Spirit of Jesus.”

Instead, the statement suggests:

Let us return to the whole counsel of Scripture, not the political abuse of Scripture.  Together, we can commit to healing, wisdom and renewal of our faith and culture. Let’s stimulate humility and gratitude, not pride and entitlement. Let’s see the image of God in people and enable the virtuous cycle of creativity, opportunity, work, productivity, wealth and thus greater voluntary generosity.

Signers of the appeal include Eric Metaxas, Lt. Gen. Wm. “Jerry” Boykin, Bishop Harry R Jackson, Jr., Mat Staver, Fr. Frank Pavone (of Priests for Life), Tim Wildmon, Dr. Ted Baehr, radio host Sam Sorbo, Jason and David Benham, Archbishop Wm. Paul Mikler, Rick Scarborough, and The Stream’s Jay Richards and John Zmirak.

Why Such an Appeal? Why Now?

The Stream asked the lead author of the appeal, Kelly Monroe Kullberg (author of Finding God At Harvard), for the background on this letter. She said, “After a few years of failed attempts to engage Progressive ministers, we wrote the letter because we’re deeply concerned for the Church and nation. Millions are heartbroken to see what has happened to the Church and nation in the past decade or two.”

Pointing to the long list of bad spiritual and temporal results of leftist policies, Kullberg asked, “Why would religious leaders keep pushing such damaging ideas and policies on the nation?  We think there are answers and we’d like them to join us all in national repentance and renewal.”

This isn’t an attempt to impose a right-wing agenda, Kullberg said. “Christians and conservatives don’t think of accruing power. We’re just trying to do our best work and be good to our families and neighbors.” She continued:

The danger is that the Christian faith, evangelical and Catholic, is being used, manipulated, weakened and redefined.  It would be good to de-politicize the Church and get back to the gospel, the good news of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection that charges life with meaning, and all things with hope. The gospel is actual social renewal.

I hope citizens will dive deeper into, and speak louder of, the life-giving nature of the Bible, the U.S. Declaration, Constitution and Bill of Rights. Because other forces are endangering the American experiment and human beings.

To the Religious Left or anyone else attempting to redefine the gospel, I’d say that Biblical and Constitutional wisdom yield the highest love for human beings.  Not globalist, secular social engineering forced upon people whom God loves.

For a deeper understanding of the correct relationship between Christian faith and politics, Kullberg recommended “Francis Schaeffer’s classic, A Christian Manifesto, a timely reminder of the beauty of servant-leadership, God’s wisdom, and the dangers of authoritarianism.”

    There is no such thing as a “progressive Christian”. No such thing as a “liberal Christian”. No such thing as a Democrat who is a Christian. And, most Republicans and independents aren’t Christians either. Real Christians are a minority. They always have been. It has always been true that most of the people who claim to be Christian are not.

    Jim Wallis, the old left-wing fossil who pretends to be Christian, got called out by Glen Beck because Sojourners, Wallis’s faux-Christian organization, took money from Soros. He denied it at first (the usual liberal dodge), but it was true.

    When will people wise up? No Christian is going to take money from an atheist unless they are totally in sync with the atheist’s values, which include the extermination of religions.

    Paving the road for the false religion of Islam to take over.

    • honesttoGod

      The values of the signatories have far more in common with Islam than do the progressive Christians they are calling to repent. Ironically, the exact issues where they disagree with progressive Christians are areas where they and Islam share the same values.

  • Hmmm…

    Where is our voice? Why is there no voice for the Gospel, for truth in our nation? Billy Graham used to have televised programs periodically, usually his crusades, but a lot of people who didn’t go to church tuned in to listen to him. Please don’t say there’s no one like BG and never will be again, etc. Why is no one speaking up from our ranks? We have many, many strong, gifted leaders. I appreciate the letter and the group with it. I know of another group with an initiative, which I think is now waiting to see the outcome of the election. Remember Martin Luther King, who had right theology and a genuine Christian walk …

    • honesttoGod

      I am not old enough to really remember when Martin Luther King, Jr. was a voice in our midst, but I have read what he had to say, and studied what he did so that I am fully aware of the incredible irony of the writers of the statement, and The Stream as a supporter of that statement citing him in support of their vision. King was indeed a nonconformist and uncompromising prophetic Christian voice, and he was then, and would be now, opposed to those writing the statement calling on the “progressives” to repent, and would instead be calling on them to repent of their complicity with rampant materialism and militarism, not to mention their ongoing resistance to full participation of all citizens in our democratic institutions and support of rolling back the gains in voting by all citizens under the protection of the voting rights act. The religious leaders who opposed King and the movement for civil rights for all Americans without regard to race are now the leaders of the institutions that sponsor most of the signatories of that letter, and they have never accepted King’s prophetic word, they have only tried to co-opt it. So, here’s a violation of Christian values for you– the deliberate attempt to deceive by enlisting a dead man who cannot speak back in a cause he would have found wrong-headed, if not outright demonic.

      • Hmmm…

        What exactly is “wrong-headed” approaching “demonic” in the narrative? Thank you

        • honesttoGod

          When King was assassinated, he was in Memphis supporting sanitation workers in a strike. He was clear on the right and the necessity of unions and union-organizing, and that “right to work” meant the right to be exploited. He left the beginning of an ongoing protest in D.C. which he saw as in someways the culmination of his career to go to Memphis. That protest was Poor People’s Campaign, in which he and others envisioned poor folk from all over America coming to D.C. and camping out in the Mall, and all other public spaces until the federal government would be forced to enact plans to end poverty just to get the protesters to allow the government to function. This is _after_ LBJ’s Great Society programs because King did not think they went far enough. He had spoken out forcefully against militarism, and had specifically stepped up criticism of the U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War. Whether they intend it or not (and I think they intend it) these folks who are quoting King are giving aid and comfort to political forces who oppose the rights of workers to organize and collectively bargain, who reject out of hand the idea that the government should play a direct role in ending poverty, talking about dependency, etc. created with the use of government funds for the poor, but seem to see no case to be made for dependency being created by tax giveaways, subsidies for industries making a profit (oil, for instance), and ignoring the ridiculous cost overruns and prices in the manufacture of military equipment. They have cast their lot with politicians who seemed to be competing about who would authorize the worst forms of torture soonest. That is, these writers who appeal to King hold values that are the antithesis of what he thought– where he sees white they see black, and vice versa. And by demonic I do not mean (and I think King would not have meant) that they are dominated by evil spirits, but that they have chosen a value system that turns genuine Christian concern for human beings on its head, and enshrines selfishness and ego in the place of community and agape. One can agree with King to varying degrees or not, and certainly he was no infallible saint, but when you represent the opposite of the central values he spent his life fighting for, quoting him in a context that (falsely) makes it appear he would agree with your program is not acceptable. It either indicates how little you understand the issues at play, or worse, that you understand how he would think about your program, but you cite him anyway because you do not care. If the latter— well, there is a name for deliberately deceiving others.

    • Stop looking for a savior or a prophet when you have a King.

  • So I followed the link for the Christian Manifesto. It took me to Amazon, and Amazon suggested that this book is frequently bought together with “Rules for Radicals” by Saul Alinsky. Can you believe that!?! I don’t.

    • JWebelo

      I do. These folks are doing research. A number of conservative figures suggested Rules for Radicals as a primer on the then presidential candidate Barack Obama, since he had been a community organizer prior to his political career. Off the top of my head, Stanley Kurtz probably did, but Glenn Beck was probably the most influential. I would expect that most copies of Rules for Radicals were purchased by conservatives, many of them Christians, since 2008 and following. I think most Christians of the conservative persuasion would pause before taking advice from a book dedicated to Lucifer, however flippant the dedication.

  • Mike Landry

    Among evangelicals there is unity among basic essential points – which is why doctrinal statements on things like the Bible, virgin birth, resurrection, etc. tend to read pretty much the same. But on other issues there is wide diversity. And, yet, when it comes to the liberal wing of evangelicalism, I’m always amazed that their beliefs seem to track closely with many of the talking points of the Democratic Party.

  • Cam

    Oh please spare us. Conservatives laud the specifically anti-Christian atheist Ayn Rand and condemn the pope. They promote materialism and militarism while condemning access for all to health care. They nominate a thrice-married billionaire who has gained his wealth by cheating people his whole life. Physician, heal thyself.

    “Blessed are the peacemakers.” “You can’t serve God and money.” They sound like they’re straight out of the Democratic platform.

    • Chip Crawford

      Don’t criticize what you don’t understand.
      Your facts are off.
      You also presume and assume.

      • Cam

        You’re right. I don’t understand how some self-proclaimed Christians can obsess over things Christ never mentioned like homosexuality and abortion while being callous toward the sick and poor whom Christ constantly discussed. Why do some Christian businesses refuse to serve gay marriages (which Christ never discussed), but serve remarriages (which Christ specifically condemned)? Why do they ignore all scriptural guidance directing us to embrace foreigners? Please enlighten me.

        • Hmmm…

          You haven’t learned:
          Your facts are still off.
          Open your heart and the light will flood in. Until you are willing to do that, no one can help you.

          • Cam

            Open my heart to conservative posters who provide nothing to substantiate their views? People who embrace conservative positions do so by limiting their sources of information not increasing them.

          • Hmmm…

            Open your heart to GOD. The Bible is him speaking, when one is turned to him. He is a knowable person. I didn’t know I’d have to spell it out, but that’s okay. He loves everybody, even knot heads like you. Best regards.

          • Cam

            So I’ve cited biblical themes and specific verses, which is more than you’ve done. Yet you’re compelled to tell me I need to open my heart to God. My heart has been open to God my entire life. It’s not open to self-serving hermeneutics. Might I be so bold to suggest that you try to read the scripture without the filter of conservative ideology sometime?

          • Hmmm…

            Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God.
            John 4:24 God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
            Romans 8:9 But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.
            John 6:37 All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out.
            John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
            Romans 10:9 That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.

          • Politics cannot save you. Not conservatism nor progressivism. There is only name by which men can be saved, the name of Jesus.

          • m flight

            Please show any statistic that confirms your opinion: “conservatives come to view the poor and sick as lazy and unworthy”. Maybe you should expand your sources of information to include empirical evidence that before the “war on poverty” started in the 1960’s poverty was falling rapidly and then has leveled off since then at it present percentage of the population. Maybe a more informed individual would be able to see that some conservatives believe what Martin Luther King, Jr. said which is: “You cannot love someone unless you know them.” So then see that shoveling billions of dollars through the government and then only a small percentage of that actually getting to the poor and sick is wasteful and not being a good steward. Maybe having a direct relationship with the poor and sick is actually more compassionate than an unaccountable bureaucrat? Did Jesus lobby the Roman government or Sanhedrin to alleviate suffering in the parable of the Good Samaritan? No, HE defined the obligation as the person responsibility of you and me to our neighbors in need. It is only when you know them can you address what they need. And by the way, from my personal experience, it does not always include money or material goods.

        • Christopher_Graves

          Of course, the Bible repeatedly condemns homosexuality. Jesus did not mention every possible sin. He did say that anyone and everyone can be forgiven and can be healed of their sinful tendencies that we all suffer from in different guises.

          I agree that Evangelical churches could do more for people in need. They have over-reacted to theologically liberal churches exclusively focusing on humanitarian principles that are taught in the Bible yet tempered with admonitions to be moral and responsible.

          • Cam

            The Bible repeatedly condemns homosexuality and condones slavery. We need to look at the Bible holistically to see the evil of slavery. The same is true for homosexuality. Why are conservatives so selective in their enforcement of scripture? Exactly why do they refuse services to gay marriages but not remarriages?

        • I cannot enlighten you but he can. Believe in him. Jesus, the light of the world. Only he can bring light to your darkness.

          • Cam

            Since I can associate liberal views with Christian teachings, I’d argue it’s pretty well lit where I live.

          • Standing in a rose garden does not make you a rose. Without faith in Jesus Christ, it is impossible to be saved.

        • bargogx1

          I think “Thou shalt not kill” pretty much covers abortion.

          • Cam

            Such a superficial approach would also apply to war and capital punishment. Abortion existed in Christ’s time, why didn’t he mention it specifically? The best guidance for things not specifically addressed in the Bible, is the Golden Rule. There are several scenarios I can imagine in which I would prefer to be aborted rather than brought to term.

          • bargogx1

            No need for him to mention it specifically when “Thou shalt not kill” already covers it.

          • Cam

            So why do conservatives say government support for poor is inappropriate because the Bible never specifically mentions it?

    • Christopher_Graves

      Cam,
      According to your line of ad hominem “reasoning,” the Anglican Church’s move to become Protestant in the 16th Century was tainted by Henry VIII’s motivation to turn from the Roman Catholic Church simply to secure a divorce and carry on his sexually immoral ways. I say, “Thank God for Henry VIII !”
      The Pope is a committed leftist but if you listen to him without the News Media’s filter, he is not all bad. He has spoken up for marriage recently as he has criticized those who push to break down sexual and gender barriers. He still has problems with mass immigration. It is impossible to maintain traditional social mores and cultural Christianity in the face of millions of non-Western, non-Christian immigrants into European societies.
      I agree Ayn Rand was trash. Some of her policy recommendations are not. They should be considered apart from her atheism and her personal immorality. Most of what she proposed is consistent with the proposals of Adam Smith who was a Presbyterian. Classical liberalism comes out of Protestant Christianity.

      • Tomswifter

        As is the growth of the Laodicean church.

      • Cam

        Most of the immigration controversy regards immigrants from Mexico, which is a Catholic Nation. So they would boost our ratio with non-Christian immigrants. And didn’t Christ ask us to spread the gospels? Wouldn’t immigration be a great opportunity for that?

        At least Ayn Rand was consistent. She differed from most conservatives in that she didn’t try to have it both ways by embracing selfishness and Christianity.

        • Christopher_Graves

          Cam,
          Let me ask you a few questions.

          First, would you join with me in affirming this insight into a fallen human nature taken from an 18th Century Genevan liturgy–“We are miserable sinners, born in corruption, inclined to evil, incapable by ourselves of doing good.”?

          Second, would you agree that God separated the races and language groups at the Tower of Babel to prevent fallen humans from uniting against God and the next time humans around the world do unite will be under the Anti-Christ again to oppose God?

          Third, would you agree with me that the human body is sacred and the sexual union is sacred? Also, would you agree that God created humans as male and female so that their minds and bodies form a unified whole? Further, God created sex for men and women to bond with each other in pairs to express love, which typically brings a new generation into the world?

          Fifth, would you agree with David Hume’s insights about our natural affections when he says the following:

          “A man naturally loves his children better than his nephews, his nephews better than his cousins, his cousins better than strangers, where every thing else is equal. Hence arise our common measures of duty, in preferring the one to the other. Our sense of duty always follows the common and natural course of our passions.”

          And elsewhere Hume observes, “there is no such passion in human minds as the love of mankind, merely as such, independent of personal qualities, of services, or of relation to ourself.’’ ?

          • Cam

            1. I take no exception to this question, but seeking insight from the 18th century on subjects like human sexuality is ridiculous because so much has been learned since then.
            2. I’ll answer this question, but I need to ask one first. Do you believe that there is a dome that separates the waters of the heavens from the waters of the earth? If not, then you join me in not taking the entire Bible as literal truth. (I believe our relationship with God is to based on faith alone. A flawless scripture would not support that principle.) So, I’m doubtful of the story of Babel. The natural evolution of language is evident today.
            3. Human sexuality should be sacred. Empirical observation shows that human genders and sexual orientation are not binary but rather a spectrum. The animal kingdom is even more so. Human chromosomes include not only xx and xy but xyy, xxyy, xxxx, and xxxxx.
            No 4.
            5. Now you’re using a standard conservative technique of employing conservative rationale when empirical evidence to the contrary exists. You seem to be headed toward an argument against gay marriage. But several studies have found that children with gay parents statistically fare better than those with straight parents. This is presumably because all gay parents want their children. That’s not always the case with biological parents.

          • Christopher_Graves

            Cam,
            Thanks for your answers. Sorry for the omission of #4. What I had was redundant to another question and I forgot to re-number the questions.

            I did not intend for Question 1 to relate only to homosexuality. If one believes in human depravity, there is a tendency to look not so much how we can improve things as much as how to prevent disaster. Human institutions have evolved to allow humans to interact freely and productively. Awareness of human sinfulness was a major consideration in the formation of our political system in America with its limits on state action and pitting different branches of government against each other. The same is true of Adam Smith’s economic theory. He assumes limited generosity and human selfishness as basic. Then he comes up with strategies to foster human cooperation and limits on socially destructive greed by harnessing what would otherwise be corrosive human motivations.

            So, in the cases you speak of, immigration and sexuality as well as economics, we have developed practices and institutions that channel what could be very dangerous impulses in people into safer, more constructive outlets. So, sexual impulses are given a wide latitude but still are narrowed and refined by romantic ideals of love and the responsibility of caring for one’s mate and children in monogomous marriage. The Sexual Revolution, including homosexuality and other forms of perversion, have been especially disastrous for the individuals involved and for society. I can supply plenty of social science research on this if you doubt it. In direct reply to a claim you made above, Mark Regnerus’ study of homosexual parenting shows that their raising of children is “suboptimal.” Other more recent studies have supported Regnerus’s findings.

            In the case of mass immigration, as William Easterly and Robert Putnam have found, diverse populations destroy social capital and social trust. Racially and culturally homogeneous populations are happier and more cooperative. They are also more productive and provide more public goods for their citizens. Diversity does not work.

            In economics, for most of the past few hundred years, capitalism has dramatically increased people’s standard of living around the world. Humanitarianism, while having its place, has not done anywhere as much to pull people out of poverty and to provide education and cultural refinements as free markets. In fact, humanitarian causes have become more prominent and well-funded in capitalist economies. Real wages have increased steadily for all of this time until the past ten years. These improvements started slowing in the 1970’s when women entered the workplace in large numbers and mass immigration picked up again in the 1980’s and continuing until now along with the perversion of free trade into out-sourcing jobs. Automation has also played a part in this trend. Mass immigration lowers the income and worsens the working conditions of native workers. These developments, in turn, can create some very ugly social consequences especially if we were to have a severe economic downturn.

            2. Yes, I believe there was a canopy over the earth before Noah’s Flood. I also take the Tower of Babel story literally. Even if one takes it figuratively, the message is essentially the same. Races are separate for a reason. Again, consider Putnam’s and Easterly’s research on what Easterly terms “fractionalization.” People around the world hate mass immigration. They see it as destabilizing the incumbent culture and social mores and folkways, which provide informal means of fostering social cooperation. People are naturally less sympathetic with those who are racially different from them. A cosmopolitan society is less caring and less personalistic than a traditional society. It must also rely more on either threats of violence or promises of money to foster cooperation.

            3. If human sexuality is sacred, then sex outside of marriage is evil. There are plenty of studies that show that when people have sex outside of traditional marriage, there is physical and psychological damage done to the individuals involved, to prospective mates, to the community and the economy. While there are some tragic cases of sexual ambiguity in nature, the vast majority of people are clearly male or female. God created us in this way. Egalitarian ideology of mental androgyny that underlies the claim of gender fluidity is demonstrably false.

            5. Hume’s observation here relates not so much to sexuality per se as to nativism. People are more naturally caring for others who are similar to themselves. They can more easily identify with someone whom they see themselves in. People are not that caring with those who are different. There are contemporary studies that bear out this truth. For example, when people see a human hand presented to them in a video punctured by a huge hypodermic needle, they show a much stronger reaction if that hand is identified belonging to a person of the same religion. People naturally sympathize with those more like themselves. God has given us face-to-face relationships and bonds to a somewhat larger group to form social support systems. There are limits to the size of the grouping people can identify with. Conflict and alienation among groups strengthen these ties–Us Against Them. When these natural bonds break down, families, communities, regions, nations, civilizations are replaced with either overt tyranny or a commercial society based on heartless greed. Consider the descriptions of the end-times in the Bible where greed and power predominate in a One World system and people lose their affections for one another.

          • Cam

            We”re still not getting the point that capitalism is better for agriculture and industry, but has been proven around the world to be inferior for healthcare.

            I noticed your historical opposition to immigration starts after Europeans have settled around the world. A principled condemnation of immigration would include the emigration from Europe. I live in an extremely diverse area and find it far superior. Homogeneity increases conflict. In a very basic sense, I pity people like you for all you’re missing out on. You also reject he principles of “E pluribus unum” and “In Christ, there in neither Jew nor Gentile.”

            Similarly, I live in an area with a large gay population. It is the bigotry and not their orientation that creates conflict. My area looks out to the rest of the country and wonders what your problem is. It’s circular reasoning to say “Gays can’t have sex because they’re not married” and “Gays can’t marry because they shouldn’t have sex.”

            Again, evangelicals are doing so much for the breakdown of the family structure by supporting a thrice-married sexual predator. You people should listen to youurselves sometime.

          • Christopher_Graves

            In response to your points, Cam:

            I think that we should have stayed in our respective European countries. But we have to take things as they are given to us now.

            The American motto is referring to the states that form our union. Take a look at John Jay’s comments on the advantages of our homogeneity in Federalist 2. Paul is referring to salvation being for anyone and everyone. He is not arguing for some sort of trans-sexual stuff in Galatians 3:28 when he says that “there is neither male nor female in Christ.”

            Homosexual sex is perverted. No one should have homosexual sex period. This is intuitively obvious. Every civilization in history has recognized that something is wrong with homosexual sex. Every world religion condemns homosexuality.

            I agree with your earlier point about churches being too quick to accept divorce. Divorce is legitimate in some cases, e.g. adultery on the part of the other partner, desertion, abuse. It is not acceptable simply because the thrill is gone.

            Trump’s positions on issues is distinct from his personal failings just as Bill Clinton’s political program is distinct from his sexually predatory behavior.

    • You know the words but you do not know him. You cannot trap him. He cannot be contained. You don’t even know his name. His name is Jesus, the Son of the Living God. King of Kings and Lord of Lords. In this life he is your savior and your friend. In the next life, he will be your judge. You will never understand true Christians until you know him. He loves you so much that he died for you. Repent of your sins and believe in him.

      One day every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus is Lord. On that day if you do not know him, nothing will save you from his wrath and his judgement.

      • Cam

        Do you really feel you need to tell people Jesus’s name? I’m quite familiar with it. I’m also quite familiar with his judging process. “I was sick and and in prison and you did not visit me.” That’s quite close to “I was sick and you fought tooth and nail to prevent me from accessing health care.” Sorry, going around spouting “King of Kings and Lord of Lords” is no substitute for embracing the gospels and living them even when against your own personal interest.

        • He is who he is. I did not give him those names or titles, God the father did. If King of Kings and Lord of Lords bother you, take it up with him. And yes, his name is Jesus. His name has power and authority when spoken in faith.

        • “I was sick and and in prison and you did not visit me.” That’s quite close to “I was sick and you fought tooth and nail to prevent me from accessing health care.”

          Relying on government to help others is ducking the responsibility that Jesus gave to us as his disciples.

          He said to him the third time, “Simon, son of John, do you love me?” Peter was grieved because he said to him the third time, “Do you love me?” and he said to him, “Lord, you know everything; you know that I love you.” Jesus said to him, “Feed my sheep.”
          John 21:17

          You are wasting your time and energy arguing with him or trying to redefine his word in a way that suits you. Take it from me, he will win every argument. There is a reason we are called the “body of Christ”. To the world we are Jesus if we all ourselves by his name.

          • Cam

            Are you in the habit of providing health care services to the poor? If not, why do you refer to it as personal responsibility? Offering a solution for which you have no intention of executing is the definition of “ducking responsibility”.

          • I am not in any way responsible for the the so-called affordable care act. I am responsible for obedience to the commands of Christ which is why a portion of my income goes to the poor and to my church.

            For me, obedience to Christ is a much higher calling and a much graver responsibility than checking a box on a tax form. A significant portion of the money that is redistributed by the government is consumed by faceless bureaucrats or goes into the pockets of the cronies of those in power. All government redistribution is a vote buying scheme or a political payoff. As Christians we are obligated to pay our taxes to the government and to obey its laws the best we can. As a christian, I accept no other obligation to the government other than perhaps to vote.

            Ultimately, I do not see government as the solution to most of our problems. I believe that only faith in Jesus Christ can save us. A truth that our government is increasingly hostile to.

    • Veritas44

      You have no argument. The American family structure is in tatters, look at black culture. Gender dysphoria is celebrated, “Entertainment” could not get more disgusting and outrageous. What you are actually describing is the progressive rot and influence on Americans, proving the point. Christians are accepting of atheists, unlike atheists and musims. Your Trump talking points are projecting Hillary, specifically ” cheating people HER whole life”. Honestly, pay attention.

      • Cam

        There is no evidence that Hillary has ever been disloyal to her husband. (To say so is bearing false witness.) Obama remains married to his first wife. Most of our culture’s rot comes from a network run by a serial predator and whose viewers regularly test to be the most misinformed of all news consumers. Republicans rise in defense of a serial pedophile who happens to be their former speaker. Yes, among conservative’s greatest heros is the atheist Ayn Rand.

        • Veritas44

          Perhaps you could stick to the argument? You flat out did not repsond to anything, just continues with the hyperbole, SJW nonsense. Hillary was disloyal to the Aemrican people, as was Bill who lied to the supreme court of the United States. In his book after office he admitted it and progressives like you put the ” nobody died when Clinton lied ” sticker on your volvo. Ayn Rand is a conservative hero for economic policy, it is true that you are ignorant of the diversity in the Republican tent. And what is wrong with society is Godlessness, broken families, making heroes of fools ( Hollywood, Hip Hop), accepting gender dysphoria as a “choice” and not a mental disorder. Our culture is being destroyed by useful fools like you that enable the anti-American, anti-Christian, anti-family progressives to take power. Google that

          • Cam

            Christ specifically criticizes calling others “fools” as a sin. Your nominee and several of his surrogates have each created a pair of “broken families”. Conversely, Obama, Hillary, and myself remain with our original spouses. Sounds like conservatives need to work on themselves first. (“First remove the plank…”) How, pray tell, has Hillary been disloyal to Americans? Usually I ride my bike and take the train. When I drive, I use my Prius. Liberals clearly do not refer to gender identity as a “choice”. If people can otherwise live healthy lives, it’s no more of a mental disorder than being color blind or left-handed.

        • ratonis

          Please. The most negative review of Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” was written by a conservative (Whittaker Chambers) and Rand was marginalized vis-a-vis conservatisim by a conservative (William Buckley). You don’t know what you are talking about. Rand’s writings do relate, however, to biblical values in the degree to which she exposes the psychology of envy (which is the root of greed) and its destructive effects on the human mind. This is why “liberals” hate her: their ideology is rooted in envy and self-proclaimed moral superiority.

    • rcur

      I notice how you focus on the person and not the policies. With the person there will always be blemishes for we are all sinners and our best works look like dirty rags to God. With the policies there is one platform that is increasing wicked when aligned to God’s word and the other platform is willing to make compromises if you vote for it. Regardless, we are to give to ceaser what is ceaser.

      • Cam

        Be my guest. Let’s talk policy. Do a word search for “heal” in the gospels sometime. It’s hard to find a page where Jesus doesn’t heal someone. Increasing access to healthcare can only be considered to further God’s will. Why do conservatives fight that so hard?

        • rcur

          Because there are more effective ways to heal or provide access to healthcare. Free market vs big government.

          • Cam

            “More effective”, huh? Please name one health care system anywhere on this planet that either provides access to everyone or has lower per capita costs than our system. Also name one country anywhere on this planet that has voted to get rid of its government-managed system. I’ll wait.

          • rcur

            I think I see your point. Big government is more effective than the free market. Did I get your point correct?

          • Cam

            When it comes to healthcare, that’s exactly correct. You could prove me wrong by answering the questions.

          • David Marshall

            America doesn’t have a free market health care system. If it did, the system would be a whole lot better. The government is involved in numerous ways.

          • Cam

            In ways, you’re right. Republicans in congress forbid the government from negotiating drug prices in the Medicare Drug Act, one of the few areas where free market forces would have helped. “Whole lot better”, huh? Again name a country anywhere on this planet where a free market system provides access for all or has lower per capita costs than our system. Name a country anywhere on this planet that voted to get rid of its government-managed healthcare system.

          • rcur

            I could prove you wrong. If i answer you question I could prove you wrong. If and only if I answer the question correctly I could prove you wrong.

          • Cam

            Prove away. Yes, I get offended by the right’s Holier Than Thou attitude and am here to show how Christian teachings more closely align with liberalism.

          • rcur

            I am sorry my attitude has cause displeasure, anger, resentment, or wounded feelings in you. But holiness only results from a right relationship with Christ. We recognize that sets us apart from the rest of the world. Being able to study the Bible, growing in my faith, and live according to His word better aligns with conservatism. Sorry, the free market system is morally superior to big government.

          • Cam

            I haven’t been offended by your posts, just this webpage and some of the other posts. You are correct that the free market is far superior when it comes to agreiculture and manufacturing. All evidence shows that it is inferior when it comes to delivering health care. Were it not, you could supply examples to the contrary.

          • rcur

            Tell me more about this evidence of a free market health care system.

          • Truthbetold

            There is little to no free market in health care. The federal government directly controls a huge portion of health costs in the U.S., with medicare, medicaid, VA health and with this power can mandate health regulations that also affect “private” medicine to the extent that all providers must perform each task in the exact same manner. That isn’t a FREE MARKET by any stretch. What happens is the government negotiates with insurance companies, and patients are not even in the picture. When patients have more power over their health care than the Federal Government I will then believe there could be a free market. It simply doesn’t exist now.

          • Cam

            We have the most free market-oriented system in the world and it has the highest per capita costs. Why do you favor a theory that has never been proven to work anywhere on this planet?

          • Linda League

            Let me supply one, my insurance with my company was cancelled when Obamacare came along and my son can no longer afford insurance for his family at 1500 mo. And 7,000 deductible. He would likely be paying that money in so low income folks can have everything free. Why shouldn’t my son have it all free? Are low income folks better than my son?

          • Linda League

            No you are here to make a case for socialism.

          • Cam

            No answer? Conservatives have told us government-managed health care never works. Since it has never been voted out, it has never not worked. So the conservative position on this subject that affects millions of people’s lives is a huge lie. The one thing the US health care system is is profitable. Christ tells us that you can’t serve God and money. So who are conservatives serving by embracing a system that is hugely profitable but horrifically ineffective at caring for all people?

          • Linda League

            The reason we have our system now is because it was forced on us by Government and will probably be kept there because we now have more takers than makers.

          • Georgia Girl

            People have the right to make choices. The govt should provide for the very poor (which it does through Medicaid). Everyone else should have a choice. As for those countries who have socialized medicine….I’m sure you’ve read of the long wait times for anything elective and not such good quality care.

          • Cam

            Yes I have read and seen documentaries. Your understanding is completely wrong. If socialized medicine were so bad, don’t you think that at least one country somewhere on this planet would have voted to get rid of it? It’s never happened.

        • Linda League

          With Government everyone does not have access to healthcare , low income gets healthcare but beyond that a person has access to Insurance. Apparently you get subsidies which means those that have access to insurance are paying for you.

          • EatYourVeggies

            You don’t understand how insurance pools work, obviously. With ALL insurance pools, those who pay in are paying for those who take out. It’s how insurance has always worked!

    • David Marshall

      No Christian conservative on the planet “condemns access for all to health care.” Find me a nation on earth where hospitals and clinics weren’t founded by zealous Christians. What poppycock.

      I’ve never heard an evangelical leader laud Ayn Rand unambivalently.

      Evangelicals were generally among the most skeptical in the Republican Party towards Trump, with some stupid exceptions. I wrote an anti-Trump article here that was shared some 6000 times. But it’s hard even for me to want someone so gung-ho about killing babies as Hillary Clinton back in the White House.

      • EatYourVeggies

        Hillary Clinton is not “gung-ho” about “killing babies.” First off, are you a woman? No. Secondly, why are you so interested in controlling women’s bodies when there are children already born out there who are neglected, hungry and needy. Where are the evangelicals helping these people eh? I don’t see much “christian” outreach trying to feed the hungry or clothe the poor. I see a lot of collection plates and “pastors” getting obscenely wealthy and leading their parishioners towards very anti-christian behavior. Jesus Christ would be stunned at how they’ve hijacked Christianity leaving the compassion and love OUT of Christianity. Shame!

    • Linda League

      it has nothing to do with healthcare but everything to do with Government being in control. A Government that is in charge of your health, education, finances, and is forcing their morality on you now owns you . They almost have it done. You don’t know for a fact if Trump was honest or not but you do know if he is promoting Freedom.

      • EatYourVeggies

        Are you kidding? Who is “They.” WE THE PEOPLE are the government. WE THE PEOPLE fund the government and elect it’s officials. Get it straight and stop making government the enemy because YOU ARE the government. What sort of government would you like? No government? That’s called “anarchy” sweetheart. Now you have Trump and what do we see? CHAOS! Because republicans and most especially CHRISTIAN republicans don’t know how to govern. Go back to reading your bible and stay out of politics because you don’t understand it and now you want to destroy it out of sheer ignorance. Mind boggling.

  • Christopher_Graves

    With or without Soros, there has been a leftward drift among Evangelical elites for a while. The Southern Baptist Convention leadership has largely bought into the agenda of the New Left especially Russell Moore who seems to be on a culturally suicidal mission to de-Christianize America. If he is not in the employ of Soros or the ACLU, he is missing a trick to line his pockets.

    Somehow Moore and others in the SBC who mindlessly support him believe that a turn away from the cultural transmission of Christianity will make the Gospel message purer. Such thinking is in line with James Burham’s observation that left liberals are culturally suicidal.

    • Nancy

      I just bought a book from Moore. I did not know he was like that. Do you have any sources you could recommend regarding his views?

    • EatYourVeggies

      • Christopher_Graves

        Yes, the Gospel is for everyone. I agree that we should help those in need. That does not entail buying into the New Left’s agenda, which is anti-Christian. Take a look at the Frankfurt School and see if you think they are Christians.

        • EatYourVeggies

          “I agree that we should help those in need.” That’s a lot of lip service but you realize that the GOP has plans to cut aid to the neediest among us right? I think if Christ were here today (and he is watching) he would say, go feed and clothe the poor. Go spread the word of my love. Not, let’s cut aid to the poor and build more bombs and take away people’s healthcare. It’s nuts what they’re doing and as a Christian you should be resisting which is how I know you are not a true Christian. Shame.

  • How can you know a true Christian when you see or meet one?

    1. God disciplines those he loves. A true Christian has experienced God’s discipline.
    2. Bold proclamation of the Gospel, the good news of Jesus Christ and gratitude for having been saved. A true Christian cant stop talking about what Jesus has done for them and that he can do the same thing for you.
    4. Unflinching courage in the face of any and all persecution. Not hateful anger but steadfast faith in the one who saves sinners.
    5. True humility. The most attractive quality about Jesus was his humility. No one who really knows him and believes in him can wallow in foolish arrogance and self-righteousness.
    6. A giving, loving spirit. A true Christian will never shrink from giving to and helping those in need.

    You shall know them by their fruit.

    This caught my attention having just returned from the BELONG Tour. It is the next iteration of Women of Faith that, while not perfect, reached millions of women with the message of Jesus over 2 decades. BELONG ‘ S message was decidedly secular, humanist and had elements of New Age thinking. I was stunned. One if the speakers promoted another event called TOGETHER from the stage. Through my research, TOGETHER is about “linking arms” with progressive left people and issues (LGBT, environmentalism, social justice, eastern philosophy, etc.) Interestingly, both events have their major sponsorship through LifeReimagined, a commercial enterprise of AARP. The layers make it so hard to discern the truth, but this looks like a Trojan Horse operation to high jack the Christian message.

    • EatYourVeggies

      OMG! “Linking arms” Sounds suspiciously like something Christ might do. The “Christian message” should be the words of Jesus Christ. Period. Try reading the Beatitudes wherein Christ talks of mercy and COMPASSION. A word many of America’s supposed “Christians” seem to have forgotten lately.

      • wygal

        Would Christ really join the homosexual agenda, universalism, mysticism, SELF empowerment? Because that was on full display. There were very few, if any, “words of Jesus” but many words promoting their own agenda. BELONG has just shut their 2017 tour down even before their first event. Ticket sales were in the tank. I’m not surprised in the least.

        • EatYourVeggies

          Yes, Christ would embrace homosexuals. He would not do what you all are doing. You sicken me and you would sicken Jesus Christ with your hatefulness. Christ is about love, not all this hatefulness. Stop over complicating the words of Christ to fit your hateful agenda. You are not worthy of using his name for your political agenda. You should be ashamed. I will pray for you.

          • Christopher_Graves

            Homosexuality and anything like transgenderism are both clearly condemned in the Bible. But the good news is that these evils can be forgiven and those trapped in these sins can be redeemed. That is what Jesus came to do, to set the prisoners free. Here is the hope that we have in Christ:

            “Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men[a] 10 nor thieves nor the greedy nor drunkards nor slanderers nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. 11 And that is what some of you were. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.” I Corinthians 6:9-11

          • wygal

            Christ would certainly embrace REPENTANT homosexuals, as He embraces all repentant sinners. Why is it that Progressives must shut down all discussion that doesn’t agree with them by yelling “hater”. If you’re familiar with Jesus, you must know that there were things He hated and spoke harshly against, one of them being unrepentant sexual immorality and practices, “But I have this complaint against you. You are permitting that woman—that Jezebel who calls herself a prophet—to lead my servants astray. She teaches them to commit sexual sin and to eat food offered to idols. I gave her time to repent, but she does not want to turn away from her immorality. “Therefore, I will throw her on a bed of suffering, and those who commit adultery with her will suffer greatly unless they repent and turn away from her evil deeds. I will strike her children dead. Then all the churches will know that I am the one who searches out the thoughts and intentions of every person. And I will give to each of you whatever you deserve.
            Revelation 2:20‭-‬23 NLT
            I’d say Jesus took a pretty tough stance here. Guess He’s a hater, too.

          • EatYourVeggies

            I don’t see homosexuality mentioned anywhere in that passage.

          • wygal

            No. You are. You interpret the bible to suit your mean spirited political agenda. The bible is made up of many different books that quite often contradict and do not align with one another. Look, you believe what you want to believe but stop trying to push your narrow minded beliefs on others. Your agenda hurts people. Poor people, disenfranchised people. People Christ would want you to love and embrace.

            Our founding fathers understood the importance of separation of church and state. We are a nation based on Christian principles but we are tolerant of the religious practices of others. To think that you know better than our founding fathers is arrogant as surely you are not as smart as those very wise and Christian men.

  • Favre Jan

    Progressive liberal Christianity (what is a contradictory definition) has fallen to the spirit of confusion. For instance their tolerance towards Islam has created the oxymoron of Chrislam. For instance in Germany they support the islamization of that country and promote the gender ideology starting at the first grade school.

      That sounds totally bonkers. Maybe you need to get some fresh air.

  • Rationalist

    In his book “And the Walls Came Tumbling Down”, MLK’s close friend Ralph Abernathy wrote about King’s extramarital affairs, including details of King’s sexual exploits the night before he was murdered.

    Abernathy said that King spent part of the night with two women and during an argument with a third woman who was jealous, “knocked her across the bed.”

    The leader of the Selma march – The black “messiah” – was an unrepentant adulterer and hypocrite who drug the name “pastor” through a bed of fornication. His name is dragging millions into Hell along with him.

    1 Corinthians 6:9-10: “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.”

    And there was never any evidence that King fell into verse 11: “and such were some of you”…

  • ✝USA: Rev 13:11-18✝

    The Church is what it has always been specifically designated ” the remnant who keep the commands of God and who have the testimony of Jesus Christ ” Rev 12:17.

    Anyone who claims the “Name” but does not fit the definition is by default taking the “Name” in vain ( uselessly ).

    In that light and based upon a closer examination of scripture relative to Israel ( the Vineyard ) ancient and who He called His own verses those who incorrectly thought they were His, the actual number of ” Christians ” in America is a profoundly small number compared to the numbers who claim they are. Most likely less than 10% of the whole.

    A relationship is much more than saying you know someone ….

          Yes, I do understand. And apparently you didn’t read the article since it outlined 11 things progressives push for that are anti-biblical, anti-God, anti-life, etc. I’ll stick with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit of the Bible.

            Yes, I read the article full of lies and propaganda. I’m a progressive and we are about freedom of religion, not forcing ones religion on others and telling lies to get people to vote for republicans. That’s all this is. You are all sheep for godless wealthy republicans who don’t care about you one bit. Fools.
