#NowReading The Armies Of God, by Iain Buchanan - a study of how US foreign policy uses evangelical Christians as proxies to push their political, military, cultural and economic agenda.
“Never before has an imperialism had the capacity to destroy the earth - and leaders who are comfortable with the prospect.”
Very interesting, key member of the evangelical movement in US was Buchman’s Oxford Group, which inspired The Family that ministered to the White House for creating an elite who could impose “God Control”. Oxford Group was renamed Moral Rearmament. It’s headed by Rajmohan Gandhi.
In this context, you may want to recollect my article on Rajmohan Gandhi that was reproduced in Manushi mag by @madhukishwar manushi.in/articles.php?a…
Deception - enter targeted countries under a camouflage job or as tourists, build friendships and trust, don’t reveal the true purpose too early, “contextualise” everything.
“The frontline missionary does not operate in a vacuum but is supported by a network of local and global agencies - all ostensibly secular, and backed by the punitive pressure of the US Govt.. Evangelisation is essentially a process of multi layered deception.”
Northern India - the most exhaustive anthropological project in history, with more than 600 agencies deployed to collect intelligence on every aspect. World Vision, Gospel For Asia and others played a key role. Objective- church planting within every ethno-linguistic people.
“When the Lord your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drive out before you many nations, and when the Lord your God has delivered them over to you and you have defeated them... do not leave alive anything that breathes. Completely destroy them”.
Precondition to receiving economic aid from the US - liberalising the economy and giving a free rein to Christianity. Vietnam succumbed to the pressure. World Vision and its affiliates played a key role.
Richard DeVos, founder of Amway - funded a manifesto that proposed that the US become a Christian republic governed by church-based authoritarianism. Funds far right Republicans and evangelist organisations, incl one that claims Christianity was subverted by abolition of slavery.
