Satan's Trojan Horse for the Christian Church: Compassion & Christian Nationalism

The full interview with Charlie Kirk and un-woke pastors link and my notes from the interview is below the crazy headlines. Our churches need to regroup with headlines like these:

Methodist Church Calls on Minsters 'to Repent of Any Hurtful Language' like 'Husband' and 'Wife."

Self-Proclaimed 'Ecosexual' Takes Nature Loving to the Next Level, Says She's in Relationship with Tree

Race, gender, sexual preference = wokeness of the church

Interlace the above with the trojan horse of compassion

Prepare your people to be hated for the cause of Christ!


Pastors should do:

 -need to be okay with people leaving when addressing the issues

-Jeremiah 36-words to people-to kings- in church today

-equip people on what we believe and why we believe it

-giving people a foundation in scripture 

-not stress over hurt people’s feelings, but be emboldened with truth of Scripture

-youth ministries need to tell the truth

-stop compromising with “your turning off young people from the church” because you are preaching talking biblical values

-doing right by people who have no foundation of what they believe, tell them the truth

-teach convictional truths and stop watering down the Bible 

-stop editing the Bible to reach people-false convictions 

-Scriptures = preaching of the Word that saves people


Consequences of a woke church:

-evangelicalism: idea need to impact the culture, be relevant, teachings of the world mix it with bible 

-Where is the compassion? Water down! Is not loving 

-pastors/leaderships' job is to be nicer than Jesus in the Bible

*****not the job of pastors/churches to be the PR man for Jesus

-pastors who remove truth do not Biblically love people

-pastors that embrace wokeism: they have removed themselves from teaching the Old Testament

-disorder/desire to be approved, accepted, and respected by the left politically, theologically, let to pastors compromising on sexuality, compassion muscle, duped by the schemes of the enemy, 

-worldview is rooted in culture, youth is raised on this with what the culture teaches and really do not know the bible

-fear of world backlash

-Bible is watered down: you are doing just fine but you would do them better if you just had Jesus

Ex. out on a Jesus shirt and go to a drag queen story hour

-cherry pick the Bible, so only teach the parts I like

-confuse compassion with not speaking

***the goal is for the culture to look at them(pastor/church) and say you are great

-they want the praise of the world

*** they do not like Christians to point out their is problem so not willing listen to brothers and sister when calling them out on their secular wokeness

***If they like me then they will like Jesus

*** I compromise on what is most important to you and I give that to you so you will love Jesus

-feminize Jesus-He knew how to be tough

-promise eternity with secular labeling like a false pronoun-knowing it is contradictory from God’s truth 

EX. 

-cru: campus crusade: their standard operation to use pronouns even if it is not true

-DEI advisory boards 

-false! proven way to start conversation is compromising God’s word to win a soul

-lie a little to save them big

-I know better than Jesus

-good intentions is not God’s wisdom


Should do:

-affirming is keeping them captive with Satan 

-transgender-welcome them in-but not affirm them in the lie-tell the people of truth

-truth: God made male and female and commanded them to be fruitful and multiply = God’s definition of family

-transgender-represent love of God in your interactions with the person, but you can say no to using false pronouns 

-same woke ideologies taking over the church, Christian colleges, and Christian music

-abuse frames every relationship with oppressor and oppressed

*****critical theory and intersectionality = the more grievance laden oppressed labels layered on one person the more oppressed so deserving of all they are saying must be embraced and followed 

Ex. Intersectionality 


Church: Biblical approach? Or a secular approach?

-the church is downstream from culture and needs to impact:

-law, entertainment, government, family, education, and the church 

-Christians can’t just stay in their little bubble-Satan coming for all people

-seminary and Christian colleges are being infiltrated with woke culture and compromise 

as they have their DEI boards

-secularism guts the gospel of saving power

-Biblical viewpoint is becoming the minority

-we need live and engaged churches


3 types of churches today:

Fully Woke = compromised God’s word top point of being an apostate

(Apostasy is the rejection of Christ by one who has been a Christian. …" "Apostasy is a theological category describing those who have voluntarily and consciously abandoned their faith in the God of the covenant, who manifests himself most completely in Jesus Christ.)


Soft Woke = sensitive to woke people and woke issues, but haven’t necessarily abandoned conservative biblical theology. They will just be quiet about controversial issues.


Not Woke Churches = just trying to teach the truth with grace and represent the word of God to the best of their ability, so God is blessing them as they lead the way to revival


Which Church do you want?

-people want pastors who are clear, have convictions, who show courage, and are compassionate

-Liberalism says to be soft on the truth to be able to love people

-legalism says to be soft on love in order to truth people


Good advise:

Dennis Prager: When I read the Torah and I find a part I don’t agree with then I assume I am wrong and the Torah is right. 


Politics doesn’t belong in the church: 

-the world shouts that the right wing politics have destroyed the church, No, the left wing politics may have ruined the church-But the church cannot be destroyed!


Why it matters:

The world uses truth and error, so it take truths that all evangelical believe and relativizes them 

-the world moves the window a little to the left and creates a new synthesis

-systematically moving the church to the left to justify punching millions of Christians who are questioning things like I don’t want to trans their kids, or  there is something wrong with DEI ideology, economy, or climate justice doesn’t make sense, etc……

*****Christians are told they shouldn't care about: politics, ethics, theology, worldview, morality, 

-the war of truth and error goes back to the Garden of Eden



Christian nationalism: 

-false-liberation theology for white people

Defined:

-How did God order the world?

-It looks at how we want our society to be ordered and governed.

-Do we want globalism or tribalism?

-More practical and realistic option is nationalism

-US nationalism looks at society: values govern society and the way we govern ourselves, so will secularism be our guiding value system in society?

****myth of secularism: it is not a neutral environment, everyone just do their own thing, we will all thrive together, we will all prosper together, we will all be so tolerant and love and hippies and puppies for everyone, no such think

-people are either going to choose Christianity or various options like Islam with sharia law, -founding fathers letting the values of scripture  guided their governing vision for America

5 counterfeit worldviews-

-Islam

-new spirituality

-post modernism

-Marxism

-secularism

****the world uses “Christian nationalism” to push   that churches are pushing a form of Sharia law who are trying to overthrow the republic and the constitution with blasphemy laws (twisted wokeism)

-try to call Christians/churches Nazis without using that word

-liberation ideology accuses the right of tyranny and are the oppressors 

****Truth: secularism has its blasphemy laws = not affirming gender or pronouns they are shunned from society 

*****Truth: coercing religion doesn’t make Christian 


Now what?

Jesus:

-freedom and liberty is God’s idea

-told us what are the 2 greatest commandments: love God, love people

-taught us how to pray 

-Christians have a new life in accepting Jesus

-Jesus shapes our view on all aspect of life, politics deals with life such as sexuality and family so Pastors/Christians cannot avoid politics

-founding fathers’ quoted Deuteronomy as they penned our founding documents 

-we must have values and morals in society


****believers are not expected to overthrow the government, but work with it through a biblical worldview to flourish-through our laws 


God established 3 spheres:

-family, church, and civil government

-church leadership role is not to govern society, but it is to teach and disciple Christians' (only one sided)

*****all spheres of government led by the recognition of  the kingship of Jesus over all spheres of governance but have them remain separate


7 Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.” 8 Yes, this is what the Lord Almighty, the God of Israel, says: “Do not let the prophets and diviners among you deceive you. Do not listen to the dreams you encourage them to have. 9 They are prophesying lies to you in my name. I have not sent them,” declares the Lord” (Jeremiah 29: 7-9).


Today:

-wrong for churches/Christians to do nothing with attitude of no point as we are in the end times 

-live like he will come tomorrow/ it is not an either or but an and still plant trees and live life as God has planned for you-live with hope

-Jesus will return-we don’t know the day or time-so let Jesus find you working diligently for His Kingdom

“I am not on the planning committee I am on the welcome committee”


Is it time to leave a woke or soft woke church? Red Flags:


-pastors who have people retreat and not fight for the kingdom of God

-if a pastor waffles then the youth will follow that waffling-leadership trickles down

Red Flags:

-waffling on female pastors, 

-part of social justice movement, 

-racial recognition

***Jesus already did that. He already reconciled the races

-must stick with what the bible teaches, so when a pastor skips over scriptures is a red flag

-if the pastor is afraid to offend, so skips over controversial chapters like in the 1st book of Romans 

-secular identity can be rooted in Christ = no such thing as a stealing Christian


The cleansing church:

-send pastor words of encouragement is leadership is ready to remove wokeism

-encourage others to focus on Jesus as Lord of your life

-refocus on surrendering your own life and will to him

-expect a pruning season a church or person goes through when you truly choose Christ and to follow him wholly

-speak the truth and know it will be tough for 2-3 weeks, but then it gets better leaving those who want truth and expect church leadership to center in on Jesus and only on His Biblical truths


Best advice:

Choose hated by the world because you are outspoken for God rather silent of God and loved by the world


Even Jesus went through dark times:

“From noon until three in the afternoon darkness came over all the land. About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, ‘Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?’ (which means “My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?”)


“For creation waits with eager longing for the revealing of the Son of God.  For the creation was  subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of him who subjected it in hope that the creation itself will be set free from its bondage to corruption and obtain the freedom of the glory of the children of God” (Romans 8: 19-21).
