Christian Nationalism is Becoming a Barrier to Mass Vaccination Against COVID-19

This morning I read a column in the Religion News Service that looked at how Christian nationalism is becoming a greater barrier to mass vaccination against COVID-19. As a former evangelical it astounds me that so many can be ignorant or care less about their neighbor. Even more astounding for me is when I think of all the Bible studies I have done over the years and how ignorant white evangelicals are toward the God they claim to serve and follow.  Continue reading

The Damning of the Peacemakers. How the Embrace of Conspiracy Theories By White Evangelical Christians Will Open the Door to Violence in the United States

With more white evangelicals embracing conspiracy theories what are we to see? Conspiracy theories leading to more violence. Expect to see that violence be committed by some carrying a Bible or cross in one hand and an AR-15 or pipe bomb in the other. Likewise conspiracy theories will do what gay marriage and pornography could not do. They will destroy and divide the evangelical family. The death of facts will propel evangelicals into a new Middle Ages where science, education and art will be downplayed at a level not seen before. And as evangelicals are gullible and and easily played the scandal of the evangelical mind will change to the manipulation of the evangelical mind Continue reading

When Your Faith is a Lie, and You Were Conned. Another Component of Moore’s Leaving the Southern Baptists

There is a part of Beth Moore’s story that hit home with me. It deals with how Moore felt like her head was spinning when many Southern Baptists who criticized Bill Clinton then  both defended and embraced Donald Trump as his affairs and abuse came forward. For me the painful aspect of being thrust in such a crisis is when you realize that faith is a lie. And that is because of what occurs when those who taught you what faith is throw it all away to support someone of questionable character. Continue reading

Beth Moore Leaves the Southern Baptist Convention. What Does This Mean? The Convention is Dying…

In an interview with the Religion News Service Beth Moore explains that she is leaving the Southern Baptist Convention. Issues such as sexual abuse and how women are treated are part of it. But the rise of Christian nationalism and the embrace of Donald Trump in 2016 stunned her. The tipping point is seeing the same Baptists who went after Bill Clinton for his sexual affairs defending or explaining away Donald Trumps’ sexual abuse. This article is an overview of a number of issues that Beth Moore had with the Southern Baptist Convention. What does her departure mean? Well the Convention is dying. The death of the SBC will be good as the organization is not healthy, and instead corrupt and filled with rot. From its founding in 1845 until 2021 the organization has not moved very far over 170 years. Continue reading

Here is Why the Recent Petition to Condemn Christian Nationalism is Going to Fail. And What Needs to Take Place for Conservative Evangelicals to Reject Christian Nationalism

In late February progressives rolled out a petition to condemn Christian nationalism. Its flawed and it won’t work for many reasons. Secular Dispatches explained why in a column the other day. Plus I also share some my experiences in evangelicalism to explain why this is doomed to fail. Conservative evangelicals operate in a tribal mentality and don’t consider those who are theologically liberal to be Christians. But it breaks down even further as there are Baptists who won’t charismatics to be Christians. The only way to get conservative evangelicals to reject Christian nationalism is when they realize it not in their interest.  Continue reading

The article goes briefly into a Southern Baptist Church situation here in Virginia that forced a pastor to resign and leave because of the Q Anon theory affecting the evangelical church.  Continue reading

Beni Johnson When It Comes to the Facts Regarding John C Fremont, Leave That to the Historians Who Know History

At Beni Johnson’s Instgram account in 2019 she pushed a really warped view of John C Fremont. John C Fremont is a well known explorer in American history who became the first Republican candidate for presidency in 1856. Johnson tied Fremont to End Times theology and prophecy and spoke highly of his faith. Her account left out his role in genocide against Indian tribes in California and Oregon. It also shows why the charismatic movement is warped and has an agenda. History is not simple and not meant to be treated in this way. But for someone like Beni Johnson the harm is done. Word to the Bethel leader leave history to the historians and those serious to treat it with respect and wrestle with the topic no matter where the truth may take one. Continue reading
