Stephen King or the KING of Kings? How Russell Moore Has Failed The Church Once Again

I like Twitter. I don’t post much on Twitter, but I do use it for a news source. A few days ago, one of my acquaintances on Twitter posted the latest from Russell Moore on my timeline with the question, “Have you seen this?” I hadn’t because I don’t follow Russell Moore on Twitter.

You remember Russell Moore, right? He’s the head of the ERLC, the Southern Baptist’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission. This is an organization started by Southern Baptists to protect religious freedom back in the 1940s. Today it has morphed into a left-wing, anti-Trump, all-things-social-justice propaganda machine. I blame Russell Moore for the really big changes, but it’s all the powers that be that stand complacently by and watch a good thing go terribly wrong.

I’ll admit, I’ve done more than my fair share of complaining about Russell Moore. I’ve done podcasts and blogs describing and listing his extreme anti-biblical speeches and op-eds. After three years of Southern Baptist membership, my husband Daryl and I had to leave the denomination because we just couldn’t justify SBC’s required 3% giving from each member church. I couldn’t continue in good conscience to give a single dime to support the ERLC […] Continue Reading…

The Leftist Veer of JD Greear: Moral Insanity in the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC)

I can’t know what’s in a man’s heart. Only God can. But I can know a lot about a man by the words of his mouth, “A good man brings good things out of the good stored up in his heart, and an evil man brings evil things out of the evil stored up in his heart. For the mouth speaks what the heart is full of,” (Luke 6:45).

I can also know a lot about a man by the fruit in his life – the causes he fights for, worldviews he promotes, and in the case of Christian leaders, sermons they preach, blogs they write, and events they participate in.

The Word tells us that we must be discerning. Colossians 2:8 says, “See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ.”

We are to be discerners and we’re to test the spirits, especially of those in leadership who are preaching and writing in the name of Christianity. The Bible makes it very clear that those who call themselves teachers and preachers are to be held to even a higher […] Continue Reading…

Marx: He’s Baaaack!

Today, March 5, is Karl Marx’s birthday. He was born 202 years ago. Marx was evil. He created one of the most destructive and demonic ideologies in human history. Through communism and socialism (just look at Venezuela) Marxism is responsible for over 200 million deaths across time and continents.

Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Mao Ze Deng, Fidel Castro, Che Guevara, Ho Chi Min–all imbibed Marx’s theory and destroyed their nations and human lives because of it. History proves that Marxism in practice simply doesn’t work, in fact, it only destroys.

Marxist-inspired communist regimes produced the greatest ideological carnage in human history, killing hundreds of millions of people–people made in God’s image. To say capitalism has a dark side, and that Marxism is its antidote is beyond my comprehension. Facts don’t back that up. Ever.

Capitalism has never left in its wake this kind of carnage or this kind of dictatorial insanity. While some Marxist apologists claim it is unfair to Marx to blame him for all of the death and destruction done in his name, reality tells us that the very seeds of tyranny were in Marx’s theory from the start and history proves this out. Marx is to blame. Marx is […] Continue Reading…

Dandelions Are Weeds, Aren’t They?

You know, I always get a little nervous when I hear someone say, “The Lord told me this and that and such and such.”

I can’t resist saying, “Really? Did He call you on your cell?” I mean I wish it was that simple. I have never heard God’s voice. Not audibly anyway. And we’re human. We make mistakes. I know better than anyone how fallible human beings are. Hey, I am the worst case scenario. A pastor told me once, “When the Divine occurs there is always a little dirt mixed in.” In my case it is a whole lotta dirt!

So if the Lord doesn’t speak directly to me in an audible voice, or if He doesn’t send me a text message, then how do I know what His will is? Not just for my life, but for my daily operations? “Hey, God, whadaya want me to do today?” “What’s my assignment?”

Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know. The Bible tells us that God wants to communicate to His people: “My sheep hear My voice.” And believe me I am not from the dispensation that thinks God DOESN’T speak today. I believe. I do. No! I really DO believe God communicates […] Continue Reading…

Tim Keller’s Ungenerous Justice: Cultural Marxism and the New Branding of Liberation Theology

I believe Tim Keller is a Democratic Socialist and a Cultural Marxist. But it doesn’t really matter what I think. Let’s take a look at what Tim Keller says and we can come to a conclusion based on Keller’s own words.

In 2018, Tim Keller tweeted, “Do I really need to defend that I’m not a Marxist? Definitely not one.” Then Keller pastes a quote from Reason for God, “The…departments were socially radicalized and were heavily influenced by the new-Marxist critical theory…The social activism was particularly attractive, and the critique of American bourgeoisie society was compelling, but its philosophical underpinnings were confusing to me. I seemed to see two camps before me and there was something radically wrong with both of them.”

The two camps Keller is referring to here are orthodox Christianity and the Frankfurt School.

In this quote, Keller says of these two camps, “…something was radically wrong with BOTH of them.”

Something was radically wrong with orthodox Christianity?

Interesting too that Keller says, “confusing” rather than evil. I read the same heady stuff in college and found the philosophical underpinnings evil, destructive, and immoral. Okay, my parents were Birchers, but still, I came to these conclusions on my own.

But most disappointing […] Continue Reading…

The Deadly Costs of Transgendersim

Last year, the UK approved a list of 63 specific genders and distributed it to all public schools in Great Britain requiring educators to follow these guidelines. ABC, here in the US, argued there were really only 58 genders, and then finally conceded to the 63 under pressure from the five genders feeling they were being ignored and discriminated against.

Of the 63 genders, three kinds of people can have menstrual cycles: women, in the traditional sense, women who are transitioning into men, but still have their periods, and the third category – men transitioning into women who carry feminine hygiene products in their purses to pretend they are indeed menstruating. I hate to say this, but any man that wants to pretend he’s having a period is truly bonkers.

This is a social pathology. This is a lie. Science tells us there are only two genders and only one of those is able to have a menstrual cycle – by definition; by agreed upon terms; by what is true.

There’s a lot of chatter these days about transgenderism. This term describes a person whose sense of personal identity and gender does not correspond with his/her birth sex. More explicitly – how […] Continue Reading…

Russell Moore, the SBC, and the ERLC: Surprisingly Deceptive Agendas

There’s a lot to process.

Today I’m sharing my concerns about the direction of the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC). And if you’re not a Southern Baptist, you may ask, “Why should this matter to me?”

First of all, the SBC is the largest protestant denomination in the United States. The SBC has over 14 million members nation-wide.

That was in 2018. I give those numbers because I want to illustrate that the SBC is a force to be reckoned with.

The SBC is huge and it’s influence on our nation is huge. And believe it or not, what happens with the SBC has an impact on every American—especially politically, but in other ways as well.

Let me just start with their Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC). The ERLC was formed in 1945 to help the SBC articulate the church’s stand on controversial social issues. It’s mission statement today HOWEVER is far from its original purpose.

It started as the denomination’s public policy arm for the sole purpose of helping SBC members understand WHY politics matter and HOW to interpret those politics from a Christian worldview.

The new statement, rewritten under the leadership of Russell Moore, sounds okay, but beware of its language: “The vision statement […] Continue Reading…

Chariots Not-So-On Fire

Remember the Academy-Award winning film, “Chariots of Fire”? It’s the true story of Olympic athlete and gold medalist Eric Liddell, known as the Flying Scotsman. Liddell had the eyes of the world on him when he refused to run his best event, the 100 meters, at the 1924 Olympic Games in Paris. He held the world record for that event and in global competitions, he’d never lost. But on a hot summer’s day in 1924, Eric Liddell refused to run. Why? Because the 100 meters race was held on a Sunday and Liddell wouldn’t run on the Lord’s Day. Eric Liddell was a true evangelical and the world took notice as he made a stand for his faith and refused to compete on the Sabbath. It was awesome! I still cry just thinking about it. After university and the Olympics, Liddell returned to his birth place of China, where he continued his parents’ missionary work in the northeast. Eric Liddel died in a Japanese concentration camp during WWII. He refused to be evacuated with other expats. As a result he was imprisoned and there he spent his life ministering to his fellow prisoners until his death in 1942. Eric […] Continue Reading…

Something is Rotten in Evangelicalism

WOKE /wōk/ – adjective – [informal] alert to injustice in society, especially racism; referring to a perceived superior awareness of issues concerning social justice. A perceived recognition of social, racial, economic, and gender inequality.

If you’re a woke Christian in modern evangelicalism, you’re intimately familiar with the alphabet soup all the in crowd is consuming: SJW, #LOVEWINS, #WELCOMETHESTRANGER, LGBTQ, AFAB/AMAB, DACA, POC, #METOO, PC, and #BLM. There’s also an entire minefield out there on the environment, global warming, and even what we eat. Plant-based is the new term for, “if you eat meat, you’re a horrible person and I hate you.”

There is an elitism in modern-day evangelical circles that is starting to spread faster than any pandemic I’ve ever seen.

You’ve heard of body shaming, Trump shaming, and the fast rising virtue shaming or more commonly known as virtue signaling. This is when a person takes an obvious, but essentially useless action seemingly to support a good cause, but actually to show off how much more moral they are than you. It’s an odd kind of show-offy judgmentalism.

Virtue signaling is more popular in Christian circles, because there’s a trend among evangelical leaders to appear WOKE and hip enough to see that Jesus was nothing if He wasn’t a Social […] Continue Reading…

Why Trump – Now More Than Ever

Right before Christmas, when Christians should’ve been focusing on Jesus’ birth and wholeheartedly celebrating, a well-known “Christian” magazine published a scathing editorial on President Donald Trump. The writer demanded Trump’s removal from office (based on the false accusations about Ukraine). But the article didn’t just criticize Trump, it went on to say that evangelicals who voted for Trump are guilty of, “gross immorality and ethical incompetence.” The writer further generalizes, in an interview, “Evangelicals who voted for Trump are ‘ethically naive'” and then, “there seems to be widespread ignorance” among Christians who support Trump. Really? You know all of us? You’ve sat down with every evangelical who voted for Trump and you heard their reasoning for their vote? Hmmm, I missed that call.

The next month, that same magazine, published an opinion piece that Christians who support Trump are statists–in other words, we advocate a political system over our faith in God; politics are more important to us than Jesus’ teachings. But I like the way my husband Daryl put it, “I believe that love for God and love for country are not mutually exclusive, any more than love for God and love for family are. Loving God should make […] Continue Reading…
