Who Is Controlling the American Church?
"Who is controlling the American church. What if I told you that the federal government had infiltrated parts of American evangelical Christianity? Well, Megan basham from the daily wire has done some amazing investigative reporting on this and research Megan. Welcome to the Charlie Kirk show. Thanks so much for having me, Charlie. So Megan, tell us you had an amazing video that I watched and I wanted to have you on the program. So build it out for us. How was the American church really infiltrated by left wing COVID narratives in the midst of the last two years? Well, you know, we've done a couple of extensive reports on this and they were all kind of condensed in that video. And it really started at the beginning of COVID when the federal government dispatched Frances Collins to he was the head of the NIH, the national Institutes of health, Anthony Fauci's boss, and he was dispatched to convince evangelicals to stop being resistant. And he's been very clear and on record on tape saying, I was sent to deal with evangelical resistance to lockdowns to mask mandates to vaccine mandates. So he went into churches. He had a lot of really strong relationships with what you might call the elite evangelical class, some very well-known pastors like Tim Keller, Rick Warren, and stetzer at the Billy Graham center at Wheaton college, Russell Moore, who was then head of the public policy arm of the largest Protestant denomination in the U.S., which is the Southern Baptist convention. So just a really influential people. And he drew on those friendships to do interviews, podcasts, where he was presented as the strong Christian brother. To come on and give advice on how and why to submit to all of these COVID rules. And when he presented these things, he didn't do it just from a medical point of view. He, along with these pastors, presented it as this is how you show your love for Jesus. This is how you obey the gospel. And that was really something that they didn't just say, look, we're presenting a scientific point of view. Here is one scientist you might want to listen to. They didn't present any counter points of view from the scientific community, but that they really punched it up with if you want to love your neighbor. If you want to obey Christ, this is how you do it.

"Let's just align with the Bible. And if people want to say that political and so be it, you know, that seems to be the new tag to say, well, you know, you're right wing or I'm not interested in that. If my values align with the Bible and you're calling that right wing, that's not my problem. Well, I mean, everywhere I go, I speak about this. The idea that being against slavery is a political thing. Being against the Nazis is a political thing. There's no way out of this. But the idea that there might be his satanic, it's a way to silence people of faith and what your article points out is that many people of faith have complied. They have gone along with this to the point where they've joined those sneering at people trying to make genuine statements based on their faith. They've been sneered at by some of the people that you're that you're writing about. Christianity today, I mean, they were never a bastion of right wing thinking, but they seem to have taken a strong leftward turn. I'm not sure what they have to say about any of this today since I can't read them anymore. Well, I was going to say, you know, two things that I'll just be very specific 'cause that's what I do. That's what I did in the article that you know I think Christianity today needs to address two things, which is platforming Frances Collins in a webinar and calling him a champion. A man who believes in the sanctity of human life, that's one and number two, either the article where at stetzer who was in an editor Christianity today, shamed other Christians for believing in conspiracy theories like the lab leak theory. That article just disappeared. There was no editor's note. There was no explanation. It just was taken off the website and you had to go to the wayback machines to find it where it was still archived. They've never addressed that. So I think as a journalistic institution, you need to explain, why did an article disappear with no editors, no notification. That's not super ethical. Well, and let's face it, we're talking about complicity with an evil communist regime called China who have done things unspeakable things. Things I can barely reference on a program like this. They are the enemies of faith. They are openly wickedly atheistic. They crush dissent. They crush people of faith. So when you are working in a lab there or you are getting funding to do work in a lab in a place like that, if you call yourself a Christian, it strikes me that you are extremely culpable if you don't deal with it openly. And that's kind of what we have now. And of course, we have organs like Christianity today, that they seem not to feel that this is that there's any journalistic imperative in speaking about that. So.
What We Can Learn About Christian Citizenship With John Zmirak
"There are many Americans that are looking to us. I talked to them on planes. I know that they are, they're worried about the times in which we live. And I know that God has allowed us the privilege of encouraging them and speaking the truth. You well, people listening to the program know that an hour or one I talked to Larry about the column, the article that he wrote in the spectator about this issue, he uses David French. It's not simply the single out David French, but it's an issue about how some Christians think and how it's not only faulty, but it's become very, very damaging. It's very harmful. And we need to correct it. And by God's grace, folks like David French and others will see this error by God's grace, I hope. But you yourself have written an article dealing with Larry's article and with this issue. So you write at stream stream dot org, the stream. Let's talk about that first and then we'll do something really fun, but we don't want to give it away. Go ahead. All right, I'm talking not just about David French, but some of the other writers who resemble whose arguments resemble his names like Russell Moore, rod prayer and stetzer Michael gerson people who were spectacularly and publicly anti Trump. At the time of a very close election. And when it was coming up to a very close election, where the balance was between electing this, the secret committee formally known as Joe Biden. This monstrosity that's happening around us that Joe Biden is the sock puppet for. Or voting for an imperfect candidate who made mean tweets, but tried to save babies. Donald Trump, I have my criticisms, Eric, you have yours, there are all things we wish he'd done differently. They were all things we would win sad or criticized. You know, because he's a human

"Yeah I think I understand your question a little bit better. So Ed Stetzer has written a book called I. Think Christians in the age of outrage or something like that, and he talks about know the society right now super polarize right so no matter what you put out there hugh get if you're going to be like pigeon holed into some somebody's can't pray and that's what I. See I see a lot of a lot of my friends for better for worse whatever you know they'll they'll come out and speak about X. Y. or Z. 'cause or against caused but immediately. When you speak for something the the other camp is like oh you're against us. You see what I'm saying and so I think that I think that's a responsible prayer like if somebody really feels it in their heart that they need to speak about something, they should be free to speak about it at the same time though to know that there could be equally sincere Christians on the other side of that are that argument with with equally valid principles of why they support X. Y. or Z.. So what one of the things that I that I have tried to Embracing this share with our leadership team is that if not illegal immoral or fattening, we should try for the Gospel Right? It's not illegal or immoral, we should do it so. I I would love for people to be able to find common ground because today every everything is so polarized. So, let's find some common ground I. Think I think that everybody's opposed to sex trafficking like I think we can all agree on that. You know. I think we can all agree that hunger is a is a challenging day I think that we can all agree to you know to help you know the the impoverished populations I think everybody would be in favor of helping you know tutoring at risk kids you know helping single MOMS single moms like a huge population so yeah. There's like there's like causes that are that are you know more controversial and whatnot? And being the noncontroversial guy that I am you know non-confrontational Guy i? I. See both sides I. See People Sniping at each other on social media and I wonder if they realize that from my vantage point. They're both they both appear to be sincerely Christian even as they have different views. And you know if if they feel compelled to do I'm not gonNA stop him. Now what I would say and I think is important is that today people are like disagreement equals discrimination and I think that that's where we had to be able to say listen. Disagreement is just disagreement is not discrimination. So if we disagree with you, it doesn't mean we don't love you. And so my family has specifically You know been a loving. Place. For the LGBTQ community that they can be accepted even though I don't believe in you know same sex attraction you know homosexuality I'm not in favor of the Bible isn't You know this just another type of sexual morality, right? So is just another variation of it but it doesn't mean that I hate people you know society quickly homophobic transphobic whatever whatever you WanNa, label me you don't know me you know and I know who I am and God knows why and if you spend enough time with me, you recognize that you can you can have a place you can find shelter choices in my home from hatred from oppression from. Any type of bullying like crazy to be at the forefront of protecting people. That are that are I. Guess Under Threat Right we need to be at the forefront even as we hold biblical values. So I don't have to agree with you to love. You can disagree is still love you when you talk about that specific, you know and and I think that's very relevant for our conversation about reaching next generation right and people definitely want to know what we think about this issue something about these ideas are popping up society. How in a part of this podcast of the lead podcast is to definitely make sure that we have approachable and measurable steps. How do you get your church or your family even to to be that way because you come from a traditional Hispanic home for sure and International Hispanic homes the level of tolerance sometimes can be a little bit lower than in other contexts. How can we carry you know leaders like the burden of you know making our churches, those safe spaces that you speak about what some of the policies systems structures that we need to create an order to make these places a reality for those people who are at risk. I. Think he's just been a journey for me, right so I I have studied a lot in different areas and just read up and then and then the human experience, right so just seeing people that are suffering understanding some of the some of the root causes of of different compulsions, different disorders, different addictions. I think it just life experience I don't claim to have all answers. Of course, not that'd be incredibly ignorant and at the same time I do believe in the word of God, I do believe that in a broken world we have just broken this and I may not be broken in the same way that somebody else's broken. I did a a sermon series sometime ago on God sex gender and sexuality. Right so we just we just hit everything and I it was like one of the most difficult servants years I've ever done and one of the things that I. That I learn. You know specifically with the you know the whole transgender issue the the latest you know hot topic right now. society is just going off the deep end in my humble opinion I say this lovingly, I don't want to say this in an any hostile way she's like, wow, here we go. Just like going down this whole like so transgenderism effects apparently point zero, two point zero, six percent of the population. So it's a very small minority by saying that I'm not saying that they don't deserve you know compassion, but it's an incredibly small minority the population that has this challenge Dsm four, you know the psychological handbook you know of of mental disorders. Used to refer to it as gender identity disorder but then that was too hostile. Apparently this, let's call it dysphoric gender identity. This fauria I think is what it is So I think we're playing some word games The bottom line is that you have these people they're human beings right that they have their certain gender biologically and yet they feel like they're different you know gender, they just feel different this trapped in. The wrong body and some gone gender reassignment surgery, and then regretted it now now their studies or people coming back saying I made a huge mistake like I thought this, the surgery reassignment was GonNa fix my problem and there's a guy that actually runs a website and in a ministry I would say about helping people to come back from the trump trauma of the surgery and then realizing it doesn't fix the problem. So When when I, when I kind of wrestled with this one of the thoughts that came in one of the things that I came across was. If there's anybody that can relate to this is Jesus Christ. Now Bear with me cheeses Christ. Why because who more to experience body dismore via identity Moorefield than God Almighty taking on. Human Flesh. Like being in the wrong body, a broken human body and yet being God and so. I I so so much comfort in that because this I Jesus is. Literally the author and finisher of our faith. As so yes, it is. It is good news. You know what's good news for the for people struggling says, attraction would gender dysphoric all of the stuff that that the Gospel really is the only philosophy lazaga system that really coherently addresses this that says e we were not created for this and because of sin and broken his all of us are broken, and so I can look across at somebody who's broken in a different way than I am and say yet we're brothers and sisters in Christ because you're broken and unbroken, which is broken differently, and each of us need Jesus because at the end of the day, the only one is going to satisfy us. And so you know that's part of what I would say about it seems to me that it it's a change in mindset hell I think but that's very hard for our churches sometimes to accept Gospel orientation thing because I think that's where I think we need to understand the. Gospel can we make sure that the passers or leaders or you know anyone that's listening to this podcast Ken grasp that concept and practice it in.

"What even Joe Gould's think about politics what do people think about evangelical thinking about politics? Certainly quite a time to be at liberty around the two thousand, sixteen election. If I could have gone back to college, I definitely would have also been a history major. My mom was a history major and when I first started college I thought Oh it's a bunch of names dates and I'm more focused on the function of the government and often tell people it only took a degree in political science from me to begun completely apathetic in one stay away from it and reading this book and thinking and looking at what people. have been sharing what believers have been sharing online and talking about there's a better way you know reading people like Tim, Keller, and Ed, Stetzer who talk about and Darrell bock being it was Kinda go between and you're not all one party you recognize issues and see how it perpetuates and how the path you should follow is really narrow one and pressure. Jesus says something about a narrow path. So there are several excerpts in the book. That could help frame the content of it and the Southern Baptist in me latched onto the personal relationship language that you used and then I heard so often in youth group and children's ministry myself. So let me go henry quote when we primarily think of our faith as a personal relationship with Jesus we will view church like any other social group another opportunity to meet people with common interests Are Political engagement will become a personal issue where we untangle social and cultural issues on our own taking inner convictions and translating them into personal activism. Instead, the most politically significant aspect of our faith is the reality that is birth in nurtured in an alternate political community that serves another king and awaits. Another kingdom Jesus wasn't making converts that is individuals who had pledged their individual supportive him as a religious leader, but citizens of New Kingdom. As much as Christians tend to that's the end of the quote as much as. Christians tend to blend their beliefs and political opinions together one example that you describe. So well, in the book you talked.

I read some of his books and then I went to exponential just followed him around everywhere. It's all his breakout sessions and just tried to learn everything I could from people who had church planet you know I think. So often we we listened to the pastors who can grow big churches, which is great nothing wrong with that I've learned a lot from many of those pastors but I started really going who are the ones truly multiplying. They're multiplying disciples for they're multiplying leaders of those disciples and then they're multiplying. Churches and and even nonprofits spilling out and so I started. Looking at the Ralph morts and learning about like what Brian Sanders in church and Tampa were doing the different ways of multiplying the kingdom and and that changed everything. So yeah, I would definitely courage some some Ralph more or Another guy that was a big help to me, John Burke down in Austin taxes at. Gateway. Church really his network out this as well.

"That's one the second pillar would be media. So we think of today, as you know, the internet news television, all of that is media town, formation spreads arts and entertainment is the third so everything from the art that we create two plays and movies and magazines books. All of that would be arts entertainment, business, and marketplace before. And so that is thinking about industries whether the tech industry and the energy industry. The auto industry all of those be business. Marketplace's down to the small business, the mom and pop shops, the retail online business, all of that would be Mark. Place case. That's the fourth pillar. The fifth one is education both primary and secondary. So the public education system, private schools. Colleges universities. Seminaries all of that would fall under educated, religion would be the sixth pillar. So that's the church and other houses of worship all different. Religions would fit under that sort of pillar of society. And in the last one is family. Now, those are not an order of importance. Certainly, I think you make the argument that almost backwards in order of importance. But those are the seven. And so the idea is, if we can influence government media arts business education, religion in family than we can move the Domino's. And we can tip all of society in a certain direction. Now that's a big sort of macro level way of thinking. And let me explain why it is. I think that's so relevant to us that we think about ministry has taken place in the church will that's one pillar and it leaves the other six out. We need to be thinking about. Ministry as a Christian as a believer as being spread across all areas of, of life gay being spread across all areas of life. And here's why I'm gonna get theological with you for a second. I'm gonna go back to the practical side theologically God's kingdom is very subversive stetzer wrote a book some years back called the subversive kingdom, and it's a great book is one of my favorites on the topic, I would pair it right. With Scott mcknight's book, the king. Jesus gospel, those two books really frame. Well, my own viewpoints of what the kingdom is the king Jesus gospel is, basically, Jesus is king. And so the way that you become a Christian is to swear allegiance to the king. And you say he is my king. I submit my life to him. I turn from my sin. I trust in him. I'm part of his family and part of his kingdom now. And so that's the key. The king Jesus gospel and the story that flows around that throughout. History. And then at stetzer talked about how the kingdom of guide is a kingdom. That's not of this world. It's, it's not one of the seven pillars and you might think what isn't it? Religion will. No not. Exactly. Religion is something that is humanly established. It's, it's organized. It's regulated. The rituals are things that we sort of manage from a human perspective. But God's kingdom the bible says within you it's invisible. It's hard to see. It's, it's basically the rule and realm of Jesus. So everybody that says, I follow Jesus. That's the kingdom of God. And so the kingdom of God operates on different principles than the kingdoms of the world around us. The kingdom of God operates on the principles of, of servitude, purposeful willing servitude toward other people that is that, that I am here to serve other people to serve my fellow man. I'm here to love people in Jesus. Name jesus. When you visit people in prison, when you get give somebody a coupla co watered, my name, you have done it, as, though you're doing it to me that you've served in my name, you've represented my kingdom, and the subversive kingdom is the idea that God's kingdom does not come in and dominate people or dominate culture or dominate any of those seven pillars of society. But rather the kingdom of God subversively springs up here and there within those different realms K. So within the school system, you have Christians who say I'm here to serve here to help, and they may influence the educational system by just being there and loving people in Jesus name and saying, I'm here to help, but I'm here to serve, whatever that means and they're, they're therefore their lives influence others. And that's this subversive kingdom. So I believe that we need Christian entrepreneurs and again, I mentioned earlier, I feel particular calling to, sir. Serve and help and coach and minister to people who are church leaders who want to think entrepreneurially and entrepreneurs, who want to think ministerial Kate. So the reason why is because I believe that God has called us to the marketplace that we can make an enormous difference in the marketplace, and what the churches tended to do. Sometimes to kind of lag behind. We just sorta wait and whatever the, the world around us, innovates, and comes up with and does we'll tag along. And we'll we'll catch up about fifteen years later and do things about eighty percent as well. And just sort of take our cues from everything around us. I think you see this Christian film. I think you see in Christian entertainment that a lot of times we give free pass to very poor quality because we figure, well, this is the Christian version. It's not supposed to be as good. And so we kind of lag behind we wait for the marketplace to tell us what to do. I believe we need Christians to step into a leadership role, not a domineering leadership role. Not a we're here to fix everything and show you how to do it our way. But instead it from a standpoint of being a servant to people to come along and say, one affect change in our culture, wanna make a difference in the marketplace, as entrepreneurs wanna engage society and culture and commerce and so forth and so on. Let me give you four examples of where I believe we need Christian entrepreneurs to show up and be present for kinds of people that we need filtering out of the church on Sunday and into the rest of the world throughout the week and throughout their lives in order to make a difference an impact for the kingdom and to improve society and to foster human flourishing among people. So I, I think we need we need people who will live out a Christ, like ethic. In the marketplace. Another words, we need people who will live and serve and do business, the way, Jesus might do business, and I'm not suggesting that Jesus would do business. I'm just saying that Jesus came up with ideas like going, the second mile for people taking the high road being brutally committed to honesty, often Tissot and charity. And giving all of that originated in the mind of God in the mind of Jesus, and so businesses that are committed to solid ethics to honesty to truth to generosity to charity. They make a difference and they stand out in an age of corporate corruption and greed. So in the middle of all of that we get to be counterculture. We get to live out a Christ, like ethic in the marketplace, and we get to do good business. We get to be good at creating products and we get to innovate and we get to shake things, and create new things and. Develop new platforms and softwares and go start things that go big, and that's great. But in the middle of all that we get to demonstrate what it's like to be committed to a Christ, like ethic. Secondly, I think we need people who will serve others in Jesus name in the marketplace. I mentioned this a minute ago, but I want to amplify it for a second. I believe that we need people who are willing to look around and go, who can I help? How can I serve not looking for what I can get out of it, but how it can contribute to the lives of others zig Ziglar, who was very successful and became very wealthy by the end of his life. And yet, still managed to be even though it was a motivational speaker a great salesman managed also very humble and very Christ like in his life zig used to say, you'll get everything. You'll have everything you want in life. If you help enough other people get what they want in life. And what he simply meant was if you just give an value to people's. Lives before you expect anything in return, you're gonna make a difference in your experience success in your own life. The reward comes around the whole idea that it's more blessed to give then to receive an even when you are great at making sales, even when you're great at, at building businesses and leading teams and all of that, even in the middle of that, that you get to say, how can I serve people? How can I elevate people? That if you own a business that has employees, you get to look at your employees and go, how do I elevate you? How do I make your life better? How do I hope you take care of your family? How do I hope you grow professionally that you get to serve other people gay fourthly? We need people who will create wealth from the marketplace to support missions to create wealth from the marketplace to support missions when I hear about Bill Gates or Warren Buffett or so many others who have made millions or billions of dollars. And then have established. Foundations and trusts in their name, whereby they can continue for their legacy to continue to distribute money through charitable causes throughout the years to come. I think that's awesome. I think we ought to celebrate that, and I think we ought to duplicate that, that Christians, if we really have a desire to eradicate aids to improve education to tackle issues, like poverty and health care round the world, and if we really want to plant churches, raise up leaders and share the gospel, everywhere that we possibly can the we need to be creating wealth from the marketplace in order to filter into missions, now that does not mean I get to be money hungry and use as a justification. Well, when I get filthy, rich someday, I'll give a little bit to charity. That's not what I'm talking about K. That's not the kind of heart that I'm describing describing a heart that starts with the motive of giving that says, ultimately I dream of making a difference in my world, even financially being able to give and. Be generous and bless people and change the lives of others in different ways that I can fix problems for some people by, by writing a check, perhaps, because I've been willing to be committed to high Christian ethics been willing to serve people, and I've done. Well at this, and I've created wealth, so that I can give it to missions, number four. I think we need to be able, we need people to be creative thought leaders in the marketplace to be creative thought leaders again. This goes back to the idea that we shouldn't just sit around and wait for the world to invent everything that believers that Christians should feel the freedom to flap, our wings and speaker minds and, and to do so in a loving way, but to be innovative innovators changed the direction of society, when you think about the most influential people in history. So many of them were innovators. We know who Gutenberg was because he invented the printing press and out of the printing press came all of the books in the libraries in the bookstores that we know today. And so you have someone who is innovating and creating and changing the game, and they're sort of breaking the cycle in starting a whole new ark in the story at and bringing about the industrial age in the tech age, and so forth and Christians ought to be right in the middle of that shaping the thought of culture around us that we should be thought leaders that we should be not afraid of science, not afraid of psychology, not afraid of the various disciplines around us. But instead, fully engaging and being creative thought leaders are marketplaces..

"Aw. What is Christianity Christianity is an explanation of all of reality? There's not one square inch human existence as to which Christ who was sovereign over. All does not cry out. Ma this break point this week. A weekly briefing on faith culture will view emission with John Stonestreet, president of the Colson center for Christian worldview. Well, welcome to breakpoint this week. This is our first program in a couple years what I'll call the post stetzer ears. If you've been listening to break point this week. You know, my co host Ed stetzer, we've had a lot of fun together. And he also now has a weekly live show on radio on the weekends. And he'll be back as a guest host. But we're trying to new format here at breakpoint this week. We're going to continue talking about the issues happening in culture from a Christian worldview, but I'm going to be able to do with a whole lot more people than just Ed stetzer. In fact, I might even say people who are more cool than stetzer. And I'm so glad is not here to defend himself. Now, actually, I am. Leased as my first guest co host of two thousand and nineteen to invite someone who was on our podcast not that long ago to talk about the condition of Ozzy Abebe, the Christian who was finally acquitted of blasphemy charges in Pakistan, but his life remains endanger something we've talked about a lot on breakpoint someone who joined us to talk about that on our podcast mini belts has joined me here as our I guess, I don't know what at the call you Mendy guest co host guest commentator. Ed too. Two point. Oh, the new and improved. I don't even know if there were even in the same category. He's going to love that one many belts is the senior editor at world news group, and the author of a book if you want to understand what's happening with the persecution of the global church. You've got to read they say we are infidels mandate. Thanks for being a part of today's program. Happy new year. John, thanks for having me on January. The second on breakpoint Mutairi, I kind of laid out a set of issues that I think and they're broad categories. But and that's really what we're going to talk about here on breakpoint this week, what we did is laid out some broad categories of issues that I think are still front and center of Christian concern summer domestic summer international most of both, but let's start here. Because in fact, as you know, I do a weekly segment with your colleague, Nick Eicher on the world and everything in a terrific podcast that people should listen to every single day to get kind of a feel of the news the week. I do what's called culture Friday, and one of the things that Nick brought out is that these. Four categories are things that we could have began last year with two thousand eighteen these are the foremost important issues of last year. But listen the first issue to me front and center at least here in the US is this ongoing clash between religious liberty and sexual freedom. And I think we see it on a number of different levels is certainly was front and center at the supreme court with Jack Phillips case with the Nikolic ace, this is really the central cultural conflict of our culture. It's not just the challenge to religious liberty. It's not just a promotion of sexual freedom. But really these two things are colliding in my view, what say you. Well, exactly. And I think one of the things that that mindset that Christians have to break out in the mind cut that it's only are issue. I I mean, we can go back to the founding fathers, but a host of people since that time who've written persuasively in you, and I both have seen that when Christian freedom is not protected religious liberties are not protected. No one's liberties are protected. It's foundational. Liberty. And so I think it's good to keep in mind that what we're fighting for here is not just a ghetto 'cause or not just a internal 'cause that we want to protect our own. It is an effort to protect our country. It is an effort to protect our children and to protect those who we even disagree with on deep religious issues. We're going to see that certainly on the international stage, and I'm going to get China in just a second. I'm one of the things that confuse me about an administration..
