Interview With The Political Cesspool

Tonight I was interviewed on the Nationally broadcast “Political Cesspool.” Below is the question I was asked to cover. I did not get to all my material since this was only a ten minute spot.


What does the 2020’s hold for Christianity and the Church?

Well, I can only answer this question based on the current trajectories I see. What I see currently is denominations heretofore considered conservative embracing Critical Race theory and Intersectionality as the cultural Marxist tools by which the broader culture can be understood. What I see are denominations heretofore considered conservative that can’t find the will to discipline those who want to continue to embrace their queer identity. What I see are denominations heretofore considered conservative that can’t find the will to discipline those who have Social Justice Warrior pastors sprinkled throughout their midst. What I see are a significant number of denominations, heretofore considered Conservative who refuse to deal with theologies which are Gnostic (R2K) Roman Catholic (Federal Vision) and Cultural Marxist (Liberation Theology).

So, all that to say that the modern visible Church in its most historically conservative expression in the West is mess and personally I see little on the horizon that is going to change any of that. Especially, since it is the so called wise-men and gurus of the Church who are so often leading the charge in re-shaping Christianity in a sub-Christian direction.

Secondly, the demographic change in the country is affecting the Church as well. Of course this is all being aided by the Church through their Voluntary Agencies. The affect of this demographic change is translated both in the Church and the broader culture as a lurch to the left. This means the Church will continue to tack to the left and this will manifest its most clearly in the continued pursuit of demonizing the heirs of Europe. The historic Americans will continue to be told to repent for the alleged sins of their forebears. That the immigration demographic will push left is proven by the known voting patterns of old Americans. All of this means, that just as in the broader culture the old Americans are being squeezed out of leadership, so it will be in the Church. Increasingly, white Christians will either conform to the New World Order Christianity or they can worship in their living rooms alone. Those who stay with the Church during this transformation can expect Christianity according to the NKVD to be the grist that comes from the pulpit.

Thirdly, the Church or Christianity will not be saved by the on the ground political realities. Both the “Never-Trumpers” and the “Trump is our deliverer” have got it wrong. Trump is neither the Messiah, nor is he Satan incarnate. The Never-Trumpers among the Evangelicals get it wrong because they are in opposition to what Trump is as a symbol and the “Trump is our deliverer” get it wrong because Trump is much the opposite of what he symbolizes. Add to that the ministerial attendants who keep time with Trump are of the “Israel is God’s people” type while the ministers who write editorials opposing Trump are of the SJW type. The Biblical Christian needs to realize that he has no dog in this fight. His dog died a long time ago.

The para-church organizations who are usually considered our friends will be of no help to Christianity and the Church. And, in point of fact I don’t think they care about that. These organizations are too often led by men who have a Darwinian worldview and they have speakers and writers who are more concerned with socio-biological evolution as a tool of analysis than they are concerned with the Word of God. Further, many of them boldly admit that they are not interested in positing any future vision of America on Biblical Christianity and the Kingship of Jesus Christ but rather prefer the broad tent approach that allows leadership to any pagan white man so long as they prioritize the white man quite apart from a Christian confession. Whiteness alone apart from a Biblical confession cannot rescue us and will only contribute to our destruction.

Fourth, in the 2020’s most denominations of any size at all will have accepted, whether in a defacto or dejure sense, the LGBTQ sodomite community in their midst. Any adherence to Biblical teaching on gender and sexuality will find one routinely being labeled a sexist and bigot.

Fifth, the antithesis will come to the fore. Wickedness will wax and wax while righteousness according to God’s law will become brighter and brighter even if not numerically on the rise. The corresponding truth to this is that it is likely the Biblical Church will experience persecution that is primarily though not exclusively economic. Biblical Christians will find it hard to function in the work place.

Sixth, the Church will continue to be antinomian. There was a time when the Church gathered every week they would hear God’s law proclaimed. God’s law is seldom heard in the Church today and Christians fail to govern their life by God’s explicit law.

Seventh, as long as the Church keeps embracing negative eschatologies it will continue to be defeated.

Of course there are solid churches out there and for those we are immensely thankful.

In the words of Dickens, “If these shadows remain unaltered by the Future, than what I see for the future is more of the same.

Now, having said all that we have to remember a couple things

First…. God can do anything. If you had asked me in the year 1510 what the 1510’s hold for the Church and Christianity I would have given a very bleak report. In 1510 nobody could have seen a Luther arising before the decade was out.

Second, God, throughout history has raised up a champion for every destroyer who shows up on the scene. In the 18th century God raised up Edmund Burke to provide the intellectual firepower to overthrow the thinking of the Jacobin Revolutionaries.

In the 19th century God raised up Groen Van Prinester and Dabney to provide the firepower to answer the triumphant Jacobins and abolitionists.

In the 20th century God raised up Van Til, Clark, Rushdoony and Bahnsen to provide the intellectual firepower to answer the Marxists.
There is great reason then to hope.

Thirdly, on this score and finally, we have to remember that none of this is outside the sovereign God’s purview. What we have is what He wants according to His ordained decree. According to His revealed precepts we are to operate consistent with His Law.
