1/ For those who might be interested, here's a recap of my some of my 2018 threads courtesy of @threadreaderapp. This one was a discussion on the problems concerning "the" Bible as the inerrant word of God. This clearly falls under #ChristianAltFacts.

2/ This other thread dealt with the social practice of "speaking in tongues," and the problems related to the interpretation of Acts 2; a text which should be understood as an etiological narrative.

3/ Upon the recommendation of @4GWDOTDOTDOT, I read and gave a short assessment of a study done by Francesca Tripodi entitled, “Searching for Alternate Facts: Analyzing Scriptural Inference in Conservative News Practices.” Here were some of my thoughts.

4/ This short thread discusses why church leaders don't treat cases of sexual abuse and misconduct as a crime but as a "sin." There is also a link to a video and an interview I did on the issue. #churchtoo

5/ This is a follow-up thread to the previous one. Here, I discuss the problems at Willow Creek Community Church and Bill Hybels. #churchtoo

6/ This thread was about someone sharing with me the story of a twisted sexual misconduct cover-up in a French-speaking evangelical church here in Quebec. #churchtoo

7/ Here, I created a thread by quoting an important remark made by @C_Stroop on the idea of "fake Christians." I completely agree with Chris. We should forget the label "fake Christians" and focus on human rights, democracy, and human dignity.

8/ This thread was a walk down memory lane, after driving by a couple of evangelical churches I used to pastor.

9/ Here's a thread on Bolsonaro's electoral victory in Brazil, and the role played by the New Apostolic Reformation in mobilizing thousands of evangelical Christians.

10/ I also did some threads on my @YouTube series on the Coalition on Revival (COR). This one specifically focuses on a document they produced about educating Christians on social, political and moral issues.

11/ Inspired once again by @C_Stroop 's #ChristianAltFacts, here's a thread on "Spiritual Warfare." You'll find some good resources for research on the topic.

12/ Another important COR thread on their idea of local and world evangelism. Reading through the document, one can conclude this to be a form of colonialism, where Christianity is seen as superior to other cultural systems and religious beliefs.

13/ Very short thread on Doug Ford's PC government and the controversial R4 Resolution concerning gender identity.

14/ I did an important interview on the political and social impact evangelicals in the U.S., Brazil, Canada and Québec. I did a thread explaining the key ideas of my interview.

15/ Another thread about the Coalition on Revival, this time concerning their stance on abortion, LGBTQ rights, euthanasia, and divorce. They understand these issues as an attack on the family and its "traditional" role and values.

16/ Dominionist's (the NAR kind) are also alive and well in Canada! Here's a thread I did on this a month ago.

17/ Here's a thread on my last video clip of my series on the Coalition on Revival (COR). You'll find information on what led to the creation of COR? COR's entire worldview stands or falls on the idea of biblical inerrancy.

18/ I'm ending it here with the thread I did today, this one is a recap of my public scholarship in 2018.
