Not a Babylon Bee story: Osteen embraces Kanye

All you reactionary new ‘fans’ of Kanye and his supposed new Christian faith, chew on this:

Don’t be fools. West is the same shameless dishonest con artist he’s always been…

… just like Joel Osteen.

 

Caring only about future ‘shareholders’, not current ones

The thought strikes: this idea of Sailer’s, which I infer from the above comment refers to wide-open immigration enthusiasts being more interested in prospective future ‘shareholders’ (i.e. immigrants) rather than current ones, i.e. old-stock real Americans (and Canadians, up here), has even wider application:

Not only is this true of progs and the woke business class, but also the neo-con Republicans who betray the white Republican base in favour of hypothetical potential black and Hispanic voters (and thus, due to going after the latter desired new voter group, going along with progs / the woke business class in wanting wider immigration, ignoring that such clashes with the interests of the former desired new voter group), ignoring their loyal white voters. (Ditto with Canada’s political class, and the pro- wide-open immigration stance of our entire political establishment, across all Canada’s main parties, alas…)

Also, one sees a parallel in evangelicalism: always with the altar calls, and invitations to come to faith in sermons, thus milk for newcomers rather than meat for old believers; always trying to be seeker-sensitive, focused too much on creating converts while ignoring the needs of the loyal regular long-term members.

I guess America’s business culture impacts politics and faith, innit? (Both down there and up here in Canada, too, naturally, given our close cultural and business ties…)

Consume products / consumers / citizens then get excited for next products / consumers / citizens!

Cuckservative Churchians still against Trump, and nationalism

Christian group warns against rise of ‘Christian nationalism’

A group formed by Christian leaders is warning against the rise of “Christian nationalism,” saying the merging of Christian and American identities poses a threat to U.S. democracy and religious communities.

“As Christians, we are bound to Christ, not by citizenship, but by faith,” Christians Against Christian Nationalism’s statement reads.

“Whether we worship at a church, mosque, synagogue, or temple, America has no second-class faiths. All are equal under the U.S. Constitution.”

The statement is endorsed by at least 17 Christian leaders from various churches and organizations, according to the group’s website.

The leaders say “Christian nationalism” seeks to bind Christianity and American citizenship in a way that “provides cover for white supremacy and racial subjugation.”

“Christian nationalism demands Christianity be privileged by the State and implies that to be a good American, one must be Christian,” the group said in its statement.

The group’s credo includes a list of beliefs centered around the Constitution’s religious equality and calls on Christians to “reject this damaging political ideology.”

Among the groups endorses is the Rev. Michael B. Curry, the bishop who presided over the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

“The violence, intimidation and distortion of scripture associated with ‘Christian nationalism’ does not reflect the person and teachings of Jesus Christ,” Curry said.

I went to the site to see who the endorsers are; amongst a mix of various liberal mainlines, Baptists, black Protestant church leaders, and a liberal Catholic, I found leftvangelicals Tony Campolo and Jim Wallis.

Figures.

{Yawn}

Vox Day commented:

It won’t be even remotely surprising to discover that their funding is coming from distinctly not-Christian sources, most likely the same people who fund the (((Edmund Burke Institute))) Nationalism is under attack by the globalist gatekeepers and Christian nationalism will be targeted by the Churchians.

Well and good. We have the truth, the Bible, history, science, and Jesus Christ on our side. They have lies, usury, and elite pedos on theirs. I like our odds.

Notice how they can’t even bear to state the name of Jesus Christ. That’s because they serve a very different god.

Well, we know that prominent Southern Baptist Russell Moore is on the Soros take, as are many others

(Note that the Evangelical Immigration Table link is now broken, but here is what it looked like; note it includes Jim Wallis’ organization Sojourners, though he seems to not be on board that organization today… But Russell Moore still is… Still shilling for Soros…)

 

Joshua Harris Has Divorced

I see he has not only left the Faith, but gone Woke as well.

Ballista74's Blog

It is notable that when you can find an ending to a story, and unfortunately we have a sad one in Joshua Harris, as he has divorced from his wife Shannon.

This might not be ordinarily note-worthy among the legions of divorces that happen in this country, but this one is special as he has written two books with the intent to instruct people on how to do “the dating thing” (specifically courtship) correctly with the point of producing Godly lasting marriages, both of which have gotten reviews here:

I Kissed Dating Goodbye
Boy Meets Girl

And other posts have been done on the text of his first book:

Here’s Why Christian Mating Is So Messed Up
Courtship: Rotten Stinking Fruit
They Only Want One Thing!
Christian Homeschooling: Raising Children or Controlling Them?

Given all the analysis above, sadly, this news was completely and wholly expected, given the content…

Evangelicals Have Been At This Longer than Woke Millennials

Evangelicals Have Been At This Longer than Woke Millennials

A good reminder that precious little separates secular progs, leftanjellyfish, and old-school mainlines…

Old Life

Eric Weinstein, of Intellectual Dark Web fame (Bret’s brother), recently tweeted how novel the ideas and language of social justice warriors are:

But for evangelicals, “social concern” has been around for almost forty-five years:

The Lausanne Congress, sponsored by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, drew 2,700 peopple from around the globe — at the time the largest-ever gathering of evangelical Christian leaders.  The Assembled believers — ministers and lay people, racially diverse, the vast majority of them men — would be part of a singular moment in postwar evangelicalism.

Like all of the major presenters, [Rene] Padilla had pre-circulated a paper, a rather scholarly treatise on the centrality of repentance to Christian ethics. The audience was not surprise, then, to hear Padilla lecture his fellow participants at Lausanne on the sins of the evangelical church, and on its failure — their own failure  — to take seriously Jesus’s call to…
