So one of the things I am thinking about is how do we, on the evangelical/reformed right, convert the discernment and information regularly made available to us into actionable strategy for accountability and reform‽
In otherwords, we don't just need an evangelical/reformed version of FoxNews.

Outrage porn for those powerless to do anything about it.

We need to layout an actionable plan for a groundswell of pressure to bring about reform.
We need to think politically and collectively to do so.

Evangelicals have a misguided aversion to thinking politically, particularly in ecclesiastical matters, and conservatives have an aversion to thinking collectively, out of a bias towards individualism.
We will have to overcome these aversions in order to force reform.

Without embracing a political and collective mindset we cannot effectively leverage our collective capital.
We have to drop the idealistic framework in which we view individualism and collectivism for this to work.

Both Individualism and Collectivism can be used for good or evil.
Our culture has embraced a hyper version of both, as seen in the post-modern deconstruction of reality expressed when a man calls himself a woman and the tyranny inherent in ideological democracy where the majority can force a minority into compliance through economic genocide.
Collectivism, for instance, is good in the Church.

You want to function as one body, not a bunch of individuals doing their own thing.

You don't just show up for worship and sing whatever song you want, you sing corporately what's on the projector screen.
We have to be able to learn from the effectiveness of the left in leveraging collective capital.

It comes more naturally to them because they are more ideologically consistent with Collectivism.
We typically don't move in a collective manner until the left has pushed too far.

When we do however, we do so with thundering force, like in Loudon county.
When we learn how to empower the lowest common denominator, the church laymen, then we can force accountability and reform from the ground up.

Hopefully much more on this to come.

The End.

Thread On The Biblical Apologetic For The Death Penalty Vs @tisaiahcho's "Christian Convictions":

God Institutes the death penalty in Gen 9:6, the Noahic covenant.

"He who sheds the blood of man by man shall his blood blood shed."
It should be noted that this institution of a civil jurisdiction is a radical deviation from the pre-flood anarchy and evil resulting from God sparing Cain for the murder of Abel and the ensuing boasting of Lamech (Gen 4:23-24).
Lamech considered himself 77 times more untouchable than Cain for being 77 times more evil.

God expands the penal sanction for all capital crimes covered in the book of the law, Deuteronomy, in the Mosaic covenant.

If you tell the left that their virtue-signaling culture exists solely to drown out their guilty conscience before God...

They get really really mad.

Which proves the point.
We have affirmation from Christ and the indwelt Holy Spirit.

Our consciences don't condemn us. Their's do.


So they need endless affirmation that they are in fact good guys.
When you refuse to affirm, just one time, one interruption of the endless stream of their gluttony of human affirmation, they go ballistic.

The only Christianity, indeed the only Christians, that will be of any use going forward will be a Christianity that is capable of rebuking the idolatry of the State.

Statism and Christianity are antithetical to one another.

There cannot be two ultimate authorities.
We hear preaching against the idolatry of good things. Family, work, liberties, & Christian education.

Yet those things are not what plagues us.

They are what is under relentless assault by what actually does plague us.

Idolatry of the State.
When this generation calls out to their false god for salvation we MUST rebuke them...

"Put not your trust in princes,
    in a son of man, in whom there is no salvation." -Psalm 146:3

We do not cross-examine culture with another culture.

Neither do we cross-examine scripture with culture.

Rather we cross-examine all things, including culture, with scripture.

@ShaiLinne is asserting standpoint epistemology. A foundational element of CRT.
What does Paul do in Acts 17?

He exposes that the Greek's understanding of deity is entirely backwards.

God doesn't need to be served by human hands, rather it's "in Him that we live and move and breathe and have our being."

We need God, not the other way around.
Was Paul guilty of being captivated by a system of Jewish superiority?

Of course not, that's absurd.

This is the same Paul that rebuked Peter for the sin of partiality in favor of Jewish over Gentile brothers.

This is an important concept to understand when fielding "abuse" charges from evangelical wokesters. To them abuse is how Meyer explains it here...
“A godless pattern of abusive behavior among spouses involving physical, psychological, and/or emotional means to exert and obtain *power* and *control* over a spouse for the achievement of selfish ends.”
If you understand the zero-sum power dynamic inherent in critical theory and intersectionality, derived from the Marxist oppressor/oppressed categories and framework upon which it is built, then you understand that "abuse" to them is not surrending to their demands.

One of the points to make about the @RevKevDeYoung situation is that he was the poster-child for the beta-male approach to evangelical wokesters. Nice, winsome, fraternal posturing...
He did everything the softies demand of us with one exception, he wouldn't ultimately agree with them.

And for that, @dukekwondc still called him a White Supremacist.
"Put most simply, our view is this: While Reverend DeYoung’s subtitle indicates that he believes his review to be an expression of a theological project, (cont.)
