    RS article was an eye-opener. Appears LW hooked his wagon to a complete loser in Pennsylvania, though.

    filistine,

    This stuff is eye opening and depressing…

  3. filistine says:

    It is blatantly non-Christian and anti-American.

  4. Michael says:

    filistine,

    It’s also embraced to some degree by a majority of the people who used to be part of this community and and real life communities all over the country.

    I try to understand…but understanding runs from me on this subject.

    This is some scary sh*t. How do these people not see that the “jesus” they espouse is nothing like the Jesus of scripture?

    CK,

    That’s beyond me…

    Seven-point plan huh?
    So long as all that Wallnau does is blow hard, c’est la vie.
    I rest easy at night in spite of nutbags like Wallnau, because the FBI keeps a peeled eye on guys like him.

    Now, those notorious left wing groups Lifeway and Ligonier have said the same things we have…

    The idea that Russia is somehow more of a “Christian” nation than the U.S. is utterly fantastical and somewhat despicable.

    The fact that they culturally hold to something closer to a traditional view of sexuality does not ameliorate the fact that it is opposed to human flourishing and waging a murderous campaign against a free country.

    Putin is evil as sin and the patriarch of the Russian church is an anti-Christ…period.

    I’m not sure if evangelicalism as we have known it is dead, but it appears to me that hospice has been called in and is waiting at the bedside…

    I continue to hold to the belief that the default position of religious people remains Phariseeism. People like rules/laws, hierarchy, power, self-importance/ego, and do-as-I-say-not-as-I-do authority. Grace, humility, mercy, sacrifice, turning the other cheek, loving one’s enemies will still get you killed, if only metaphorically.

    John D. Roth

    Christians should embrace their political responsibilities not as citizens, or as representatives of political parties, or as a lobby group shouting to be heard, but as ambassadors of the Prince of Peace who came as a servant, welcomed children and foreigners into his circle, and taught us to love our enemies.

    (As quoted in today’s online edition of “Plough.”

    Michael. It’s specifically items such as you mentioned that caused Evangelical leaders to switch from an Evil Empire view to an amorous view of Russia.

    I would also list suppression of journalism, control of ethnic and religious minorities, suppression of Jews and national religious doctrines determined by the national leader.

    That is the America envisioned by Christian Nationalism and it prevents Evangelical leaders criticizing he Ukraine invasion 7 months in. Big Eva supports Kremlin policies.

    Of course it’s anti-christ. Dispensationism gave us a false understanding of anti-christ as a liberal European in a tailored suit.

    “…aligning not primarily with a theological system but with a cultural and political identity.”

    And it’s having an impact.
