These men began pushing their agenda of feminism, racial social justice, and homosexualism in an era when it was politically-expedient to do so: during the Obama administration. Recall that President Obama was no friend of evangelicals or even the Christian church. His administration sued an ELCA “Christian” school for discriminating against a lesbian in employment even though school employees are officers of the church. He lost 7-2 in the Supreme Court. He filed amicus briefs on behalf of the homosexuals in the Obergefell case – the “Roe v. Wade” of our lifetime that was immediately used against Christian bakers in Oregon and Colorado. Once homosexuality was codified into law, the Obama administration moved onto transgenderism. There are now boys using girls’ bathrooms in public schools endangering our daughters.
Though Russell Moore and other “Gospel” Coalition lackies have had a place at the table, their influence on behalf of the church and culture has either been nothing or negative. Worse, it could be that these men are in favor of the new radicalism. Proofs to this effect are now offered. Consider their embrace of Anglican minister Sam Alberry – another homosexualist out of the UK. The word “Anglican” should raise red flags in the mind of any believing Christian in this age. The apostate imbecile Rowan Williams was archbishop of Canterbury for 10 years until 2012. The heretic NT Wright is another prominent bishop in the Anglican church. Bishops and the archbishop are the guys in charge and they don’t believe the basic tenets of Christianity, so “Gospel” Coalitioners would be wise to avoid the entire church. Instead, they’re promoting Sam Alberry. His destructive doctrine is documented on Rev. Shawn Mathis’ blog here and here (read the comments). The “Gospel” Coalition is even promoting a children’s book that promotes homosexuality. Since transgenderism seems to follow homosexuality, I can only believe their next campaign will be the promotion of “loving transgenders in the church” contra Paul who mandated strict gender roles in the church.
The evangelical NuMale war on gender proceeds on all fronts. It is also feminist. Here Matt Chandler is Stonewall Jackson to the Lee of Mohler and Moore. Chandler wants men to “man up” while removing all of the reasons and moral authority men use for doing so. Chandler is a pastor in Austin TX, so he must be giving his audience what it wants, which isn’t Christianity or Christian gender roles.
Christianity is largely not preached by megachurch men with big platforms such as the “Gospel Coalition” who want influence in the culture. Subsequent posts will discuss how to find a Christian church where pastors stick to Christianity. These types of churches – I warn you – require you to die to yourself and sacrifice the entertainment and sensuality you find at megachurches run by NuMales. However, you may be saved if you attend a real church and you will be saved if you believe the gospel preached therein.
