What’s going on right now has a lot in common with the early 20th century German church. I do my research and see lots of parallels. Yesterday I discovered one of these hate-filled preachers named Jeff Durbin is saying crap like the following:
He’s calling me a slut who opens her legs to Marx, Engels, Soros…. I’ve seen clips of other videos he posts, and they’re full of hateful tirades against people he doesn’t even know because they disagree with him.
And this is hardly the only guy. Some googling and reading of blog posts reveals a whole lot of pushback in the churches to people they call “woke” and “social justice warriors.” They sound like Nazis with their patriarchal white supremacy, which includes derision for those who support gay marriage (like Durbin here, who uses the term “homolust”). I don’t just see this on Evangelical websites, but on Orthodox ones as well.
You go into comment sections, you watch videos, you read news articles, and you’ll find a lot of people saying that these people are in “sin” and need to “repent”–and if they don’t, that they need to be tossed out of the church!
I’ve read the Bible numerous times. I’ve studied the words of Christ. I know what Christianity is, and this ain’t it. It is the spirit of antichrist–yet they say *we* are the spirit of antichrist.
Trumpism is taking over everything: the GOP, the church. It’s a poison that keeps spreading. He didn’t start it by any means, but he’s given them carte blanche to say these things openly. These are dangerous times; I study history, and I’ve seen what this leads to. These were all Nazi beliefs: patriarchy, white supremacy, homophobia, anti-Semitic theories (such as Illuminati, New World Order, and the constant slander against George Soros).
The Nazis promised the churches that they would bring back “Christian” ideals, that they could pray in schools again, etc. The German church embraced Naziism the same way that the modern churches are embracing this anti-woke philosophy. They were so deluded that they saw Christ in the Nazis. Let’s not make the same mistake.
