“TGC doesn’t have anything to do with the Gospel, which is increasingly absent from their articles except as a passing mention. The Gospel Coalition serves the purpose – and is paid by dark money – to keep evangelicals from leaving a check mark by Trump’s name on November 3, 2020.”
(JD Hall – Pulpit & Pen) The Gospel Coalition doesn’t want you to vote for President Trump in 2020. We get it.
The political organization, masquerading as a religious 501(c)3, couldn’t be clearer that their main goal is to change the voting patterns of evangelicals….
Their blog, conferences, and speakers come from a variety of backgrounds, but all have a singular goal and singular slant to whatever material they produce; they all lean politically leftward.
The Gospel Coalition and its sister organization, the ERLC of the Southern Baptist Convention (they share the same board members and contributors), spent nearly half a decade telling conservative evangelicals not to politicize their Gospel preaching. For the last several years, they’ve been inundating evangelicals with leftist talking points like immigration, while going virtually silent on topics like abortion and gay marriage. Now, these organizations – largely funded by dark money from James Riady, George Soros, and the Kern Foundation – are telling evangelicals to be political again.
Largely, these Riady-Soros-Kern funded organizations have embarked on this simple three-stage plan.
- Convince politically conservative evangelicals to divorce their faith from their politics, and to give up politics for pure Gospel preaching.
- Instill liberal and progressive ideas about Critical Race Theory, Identity Politics, illegal immigration and globalism into evangelical thought. In short, make Social Justice popular in evangelicalism.
- Once evangelicals have disengaged from the Republican Party, and once inundated with liberal ideas, convince them get back into politics, and to either vote Democratic or – if that fails – get them not to vote at all (which is just as good).
Do you remember when Russell Moore took the reigns of the ERLC from Richard Land and promised to have a less-political tenure at the organization? Land, a consistent Republican, was seen as too-involved in the political process. Moore would save the ERLC, so we were told, by separating Southern Baptists from politics.
