Changes Are Coming Fast to the Modern Church in America

In early March Beth Moore resigned her membership in the Souther Baptist Convention. Moore called President Trump's sexual exploits with women in the “Access Hollywood” tapes "the shock of my life. This wasn’t just immorality,” she said. “This smacked of sexual assault.” Respect for women and others important to Moore. In excerpts form "A Letter to My Brothers" by Beth Moore, she write" "I’m asking that you would simply have no tolerance for misogyny and dismissiveness toward women in your spheres of influence. I’m asking for your deliberate and clearly conveyed influence toward the imitation of Christ in His attitude and actions toward women. I’m also asking for forgiveness both from my sisters and my brothers. My acquiescence and silence made me complicit in perpetuating an atmosphere in which a damaging relational dynamic has flourished. I want to be a good sister to both genders." Moore also holds that many within the Southern Baptist Denomination are "quick to teach submission are often slow to point out that women were also among the followers of Christ (Luke 8), that the first recorded word out of His resurrected mouth was “woman” (John 20:15) and that same woman was the first evangelist. Many churches wholly devoted to teaching the household codes are slow to also point out the numerous women with whom the Apostle Paul served and for whom he possessed obvious esteem. We are fully capable of grappling with the tension the two spectrums create and we must if we’re truly devoted to the whole counsel of God’s Word." "As a woman leader in the conservative Evangelical world, I learned early to show constant pronounced deference – not just proper respect which I was glad to show – to male leaders and, when placed in situations to serve alongside them, to do so apologetically." And now Moore is gone. Will other women follow? Will younger women seeking to find a church that teaches the Word of God avoid Southern Baptist churches because of a perceived bias towards males and against females? In the same way the United Methodist Conference seems headed for a split over same-gender marriage, SBC appears to be dividing over opposing-gender roles. Is this the will of God or work of Satan? One thing is clear, changes are coming fast to modern church in America.

Respect for women and others is important to Moore. In excerpts from “A Letter to My Brothers,”Moore writes,”

“The Law on Sermons,” will require religious groups to deliver public statements in Danish or make them available in translation.

“We want to give our companies the best framework conditions to create growth and jobs at home. In the area of ​​foreigners, we will make more demands. If new arrivals and other immigrants with a integration needs are outside the labor market, there must be a requirement for 37 hours of effort the week to be entitled to full benefit. And there must be greater openness about religious preachers sermons in languages ​​other than Danish.” – Mette Frederiksen, Prime Minister of Denmark

“Robert Innes, whose diocese stretches across mainland Europe, told the Guardian he feared the law, if backed in the Danish parliament, the Folketing, would be replicated elsewhere in Europe at a time when religious minorities were generally finding their freedoms being encroached upon. The government has said the aim of the law is to “enlarge the transparency of religious events and sermons in Denmark, when these are given in a language other than Danish.” – the Guardian

Join Us as We Present Events That Mark “The Final Conflict”

Join Us as We Present Events That Mark “the Final Conflict”

From abortion legislation that allows for the execution of a child mere hours before its full-tern delivery, to the encouragement of public harassment against those with whom we disagree, to students rioting against free speech, to elected leaders seeking to neuter the First Amendment and parents jailed for calling their child by their birth name, we are witnessing a sharp and sudden turn towards patently evil behavior.

It is as if someone flipped a switch in 2016 and unleashed spirits of delusion, division, and destruction to go throughout America, and the world. It is as if sides were chosen and any middle ground collapsed into a chasm between the two. It is as if a holy war began for the minds and souls of men and women.

All attempts to understand the “rending,” the “splitting” seemed to fail, because pundits and experts try to explain this sudden, titanic cultural shift from a human perspective. There is no logical answer for why so many are acting without reason apart from an increase in sudden spiritual influences. And that is what we propose at The Final Conflict: to shine light on events that appear to have originated from the realms of light and darkness.

To begin to make sense of what we are witnessing we must understand the times in which we live. We must grasp what we believe is now the most pertinent prophecy of our times. Jesus said in Matthew 24, “For nation will arise against nation and kingdom against kingdom.” Jesus was not just saying the same thing two different ways as most propose. The Greek word for “nation” in this context means “nations or peoples.” The word for “kingdom,” is “a realm, a reign, or a rule.” “Realm” is the same word John the Baptist and Jesus used to describe the kingdom of heaven Christ brought to earth.

Though many nations exist on earth, there are only two “kingdoms,” and what we’re witnessing in these days are literally two realms “arising” with unprecedented urgency against one another, as Jesus prophesied. This is the foundational belief from which The Final Conflict will view all current events. Jesus went on to say this would mark the beginning of the birth pangs. In subsequent articles we will explore and explain how these tremors of pain affect everyone on the planet.

If you believe we are witnessing the unfolding of two realms warring against each other, if you believe God’s kingdom of heaven has invaded our world, then join us as we present events that mark “The Final Conflict.”
