Its Time for Greg Strand to Address Christian Nationalism Inside the Evangelical Free Church of America

The EFCA needs to address the problem of Christian nationalism from a theological perspective. The dead and injured in my backyard of Washington, D.C. are owed that by evangelicalism. This blog believes that Christian nationalism is a challenge for the EFCA, after all I wrote about it before the election using an EFCA church as an example. Greg Strand needs to develop a program that will tackle this problem and educate people on this topic and defuse the tension. Christian nationalism is linked to other issues such as racial reconciliation and justice which the EFCA cares about.  Continue reading

#PastorParler Tyler Ethridge, A Christian Nationalist Pastor Comes to Washington, D.C. For #SaveAmerica and Allegedly Follows The Rioters Into the United States Capitol

When Tyler Ethridge was coming to Washington, D.C. for Donald Trump’s Save America rally he believed he was traveling to a combat zone. That D.C. would be similar to Beirut or Baghdad. As a Christian nationalist pastor Tyler was all in for his Lord and Savior Donald Trump. This post is about his activity in the days before the riot and what his alleged behavior was at the Capitol itself on January 6, 2021. Tyler had allegedly participated in a coup attempt and invasion of the Capitol for the first time since the British did so in the War of 1812. Continue reading

After the January 6 Insurrection Liberty University Remains the Only School That Will Not Rescind Donald Trump’s Honorary Degrees. Plus Questions for Liberty’s Police Chief Richard D. Hinkley in Light of the Violence at the Capitol

Liberty University today is the only school that has not rescinded its honorary degrees to Donald Trump. Its still standing by them. Liberty, in the view of this blog, owns some responsibility for the riot in constantly supporting Trump and feeding his ego. And today they are continuing to do so even after five were killed and two police officers committed suicide. Liberty’s behavior is even more insidious in light of new details about the violence at the Capitol. In addition to the dead there are over 140 police officers that are injured. This raises questions about Richard Hinkley and how Liberty’s Police are viewed. But also due to fraternal culture in law enforcement how can Liberty’s Police stand by and stay silent in light of the violence and death of their brothers in Washington, D.C.? Does, “But Gorsuch” “Trump” Liberty’s or D.C.’s Police Officer’s lives? Continue reading

#PastorParler Tyler Ethridge Who Allegedly Participated in the D.C. Insurrection and His Views on the Prosperity Gospel

This post is a continued deep dive into a Christian nationalist pastor who allegedly was involved in the Washington, D.C. riot of January 6, 2021. Tyler Ethridge was a firm believer of the prosperity gospel. He advocated for it and claimed that it was the way forward. Charismatics in evangelicalism are into this warped belief system. This blog has a prediction to make. It predicts that in five to ten years when this implodes that Tyler Ethridge will be an atheist.

Guandolo is a troubled individual that sadly inspired a lost soul in Florida. Continue reading

It’s Finally Over and Being Proud to Live in the Washington, D.C. Area

Watching a video before bedtime brings this quick post about. I’m grateful that the Trump era is over and am looking forward to a fresh start. These past four years were painful for a traditional conservative like me. Bridges were crossed and in some cases burned and there is no going back. But seeing the corruption by evangelicals on display during the Trump era was staggering. These past four years were a defining time and I realized that I could not be an evangelical at all.  Continue reading
