Corporate Prophets


Would you buy a used heresy from this man? "Emergent Church" Leader Jim Wallis
********************

Often, people of mediocre minds attempt to avoid uncomfortable thoughts (which might obligate them to action) by writing off evidence of vast and malevolent plans as "conspiracy theories." This is foolish. Humans, by their very nature, are conspiratorial. The reason that there are laws against "conspiracy to commit" crimes is that there is a certain percentage of the population which will perpetrate those crimes. So let’s have no more of this nonsense that something cannot possibly be true once some ignorant person slaps the label "conspiracy theory" on it. The times we live in are too desperate for the luxury of such shallow thoughtlessness.

The great writer G.K. Chesterton once observed, "The wisest thing in the world is to cry out before you are hurt. It is no good to cry out after you are hurt; especially after you are mortally hurt. People talk about the impatience of the populace; but sound historians know that most tyrannies have been possible because men moved too late. It is often essential to resist a tyranny before it exists. It is no answer to say, with a distant optimism, that the scheme is only in the air. A blow from a hatchet can only be parried while it is in the air."

Those of us who spend time connecting dots have seen evidence that big business (including big media), big government, and big religion are all attempting to push mankind into the same direction: open-borders globalism void of transcendent moral absolutes. The American middle class, with their independent wealth, independent thinking, and moral code grounded in the Judeo-Christian tradition, are an obstacle to a world run without restraint by a handful of super-rich, super powerful elites. Because of that, Main Street America's middle class are mocked and vilified by big media. Governments arrange economic policy so that the big companies get rich servicing government contracts, the poor get by from receiving government programs, and the middle class are slowly destroyed paying for it all. We aren’t deemed “too big to fail.”

That leaves "big religion." The same people that are co-joining business and government are behind some of the recent push for churches to run their ministries "more like a business" and for churches to forsake traditional morality in favor of "social justice." The "Emergent Church" is a term coined for one strain of this corpro-religio-governmental theology. Jim Wallis, through his Sojourners organization and elsewhere, is one of the most well-known proponents of this "new Christianity." Because of the big money behind it, ideas from Wallis, Sojourners, and other “corporate prophets” have found their way even into mainstream bible-believing churches. Perhaps even yours!

The magnificent Marvin Olasky of World Magazine recently broke a story that said Wallis' Sojourners group received significant early-on money from George Soros through his Open Society Institute. Soros, an atheist, is one of the very elites to which I refer. Wallis' reaction was to flatly accuse Olasky of lying!

Olasky was telling the truth, but instead of Wallis apologizing for his slander, his organization attempted to cover up the evidence. Documenting web pages started vanishing from the internet. Sojourners' records were scrubbed, but OSI's tax filings were not. Olasky finally had undeniable evidence that not only did Soros dump piles of money on Sojourners, but at the time of the first grant of $200,000 Sojourners had a negative net worth of $57,000!

Even after the failure of the cover-up, Wallis shamelessly refused to apologize. Instead he had a spokesman claim he simply did not remember getting the $200,000 at a time when his organization was going broke! Do you believe him? I don’t either. Beware of corporate prophets!

After repeated emails and phone calls, Soros spokeswoman Laura Silber responded to a query from WORLD’s Warren Smith about the disappearance of online records showing the Open Society Institute’s grants to Sojourners. She said the grants did occur but the reason the documents were gone is “pretty simple. We are overhauling our website. That feature was not working well, so we decided to disable it. It won’t be a part of our new site, which is still an ongoing project.”

Open Society Institute-- what's in a name?

The old "overhauling our website" line. And Wallis was overhauling his memory, I suppose.

Thank you for having the courage to confront evil in the church. Christians seem to have no problem with discernment when it comes to criticizing the criticizers! They will come after you for this, calling you divisive and unloving. But who is more divisive and unloving: The liar and the wolf in sheep's clothing who goes in opposition to the truth (and God as well, since God is truth), or the person obedient to scripture for exposing that sin?
Of course they forget all the other scriptures that apply to that process conveniently.
Well let me encourage you. Stand up for the truth, confront evil, and keep standing firm!
