AMERICAN FAMILY ASSOCIATION, AFA & AFR IS PARTNERING WITH THE GOSPEL COALITION LEADERS TO SUPPORT A ”CONSERVATIVE VIEW OF THE BIBLE” WHILE TGC IS DRIVING RACIAL DIVISION AND PRO LGBT MOVEMENTS.
American Family Association (AFA) and it’s American Family Radio have been popular resources and gathering places for Conservative Christians who are politically engaged. However things look to be changing at AFA as it has yoked itself with The Gospel Coalition.
Biblical conservative Christians began to realize that Tim Keller and D A Carson’s organization The Gospel Coalition (TGC) had huge and growing problems as revelations of Cultural Marxist ideologies like Social Justice, Critical Race Theory, Intersectionality, Gender/Feminine/Queer theory had made their way DEEP inside the TGC. The infiltration has spread like a socially transmitted disease to TGC’s affiliated Seminaries and ministries. By April 2018 the TGC/ERLC cosponsored MLK/50 Conference came around all jaws dropped, ears perked and all hands came on deck to push back against the flood waters. The Social Justice alarms went off throughout the conservative Christian world. AFA looks to have missed the alarm on the Social Justice invasion.
At the fountain head of the Social Justice floodwaters was progressive funding like that of Kern Family Foundation and Templeton Foundation flowing through TGC. The funding is flowing in by the millions into conservative Seminaries that affiliate with TGC like those led by Ligon Duncan and Albert Mohler and others. TGC is not a victim of but a primary source of the Social Justice false gospel and massive infiltration of Cultural Marxist ideology into the church today.
HOW DID AMERICAN FAMILY FOUNDATION MISS THE TGC SELL OUT TO MARXIST?
AFA and its radio outlet American Family Radio have been a source trusted by many Conservative Christians for decades. WHY ARE THEY PARTNERING WITH TGC?
“THE GOD WHO SPEAKS” FILM PROJECT AFA AND THE TGC SPEAKERS
Launched in 2018 at the same time the TGC / ERLC shocked the evangelical conservative world with MLK/50 -AFA introduced their film project to support the Bible’s authorship- reliability and foundational role in Christian faith using many of TGC leading compromiers .
AFA is still heavily promoting the film today.
“There is a war raging around us – in society, in our churches, and in our homes. It is not a battle over marriage, race, or the sexual revolution. Rather, it is a battle for the truth. Is God real? Does He speak, and if so, how would we know? While many churches are faithfully proclaiming the truths found in Scripture, others have lost confidence in the Bible’s divine authorship. “
“The God Who Speaks is a 90-minute documentary that traces the evidence of the Bible’s authority through interviews with some of the world’s most respected biblical scholars. This film answers common objections about the Bible’s reliability and equips believers to confidently base their lives on the power of God’s Word.”

CURRENT AFA MEDIA PROMOTION OF “THE GOD WHO SPEAKS” FILM
THE GOD WHO SPEAKS EXECUTIVE PRODUCER IS AFA HEAD TIM WILDMON
AFA FILM INVOLVES TGC LEADER SBTS PRESIDENT ALBERT MOHLER
“We hold to the church doctrine of Scripture, the doctrine of Scripture that has marked to the Christian church, and is foundational for our understanding, our confidence, not only of what the Bible is, but of who’s speaking. Is it merely Paul? Is it merely Ezekiel? Is it merely Moses? Well, Paul and Moses and Ezekiel do speak in Scripture. But more importantly, God speaks.” Albert Mohler http://bit.ly/2ntlc7o
ALBERT MOHLER ABOVE IS SPOKESPERSON IN AND FOR THE AFA MOVIE
Albert Mohler has taken the progressives funding into his seminary Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (SBTS) IN THE “COMMONWEAL PROJECT. Now SBTS has become a regular praticisioneer of Critical Theories and is busy indoctrinating a new generation of disciples in the Cultural Marxist tools of social change and Social Justice false gospel.
Mohler fully embraced the TGC narrative on LGBT+ Flourishing in the church via his acceptance of the APA and TGC compliant narrative on the supposed reality of “Homosexual Orientation” which is said to be unchanging – according to the narrative - even by the Gospel and saving faith. Mohler even apologized for “being wrong about (denying) homosexual orientation” at a 2014 conference by TGC partner the ERLC on Homosexuality and “the Future of Marriage” conference. ALL TGC top leadership would have signed onto this position in 2010. More on that in a moment.
Mohler has shown radical views on race and engaged in a two year “racial purge” at SBTS and in the 2015 activist effort to “Rid the SBC of Racism” while himself sitting on the theological chair named after a anf reputedly vicious Civil War racist. Also Mohler raised eyebrows with his endorsements of leader Nelson Mandela of South Africa
Albert Mohler: “When it comes to human rights and human dignity, Nelson Mandela has to be put on the side of the heroes, not only of the 20th century, but of any recent century.”
REVOICE “LGBT+CHRISTIANITY” AND TGC/SBTS
Mohler’s seminary produced the leader of the radical LGBTQ+ Christianity conference called Revoice. The movements head is Nate Collins who was teaching New Testament at SBTS while launching Revoice and published his book “All But Invisible“. Collins Dissertation at SBTS is informed by his studies of Gender, Feminine and Queer Theory at SBTS and deals with “Virgin as a Third Gender” in the NT. The dissertation makes the case that other gender options exist besides male and female while Genesis makes clear only two exist. “God made them male and female.” Collins assertions of gender options comes from twisting of biblical text through the critical theory lens .
The shocking reality is that Revoice founder Nate Collins actually writes for and does book reviews on the LGBT+ topic FOR The Gospel Coalition.
JARVIS WILLIAMS OF SBTS IN THE AFA TGC LINE UP
Jarvis Williams has been teaching at Mohler’s SBTS since at least 2014. A close look shows Williams mentored the Nate Collins dissertation that birthed the LGBTQ+ Christianity movement of Revoice. More recently Jarvis Williams has emerged as a key leader in the open promotion of Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality into the Southern Baptist Convention. The controversial “Resolution “in the SBC 2019 annual meeting is still raising serious concerns and have Baptist scrambling to understand the concepts of Cultural Marxism and tools like Critical Theory which Jarvis, Mohler and others have introduced into their churches and institutions.
Jarvis Williams has been one of the most vocal advocates for the use of Critical Race Theory – a “cultural Marxist” tool - as a “useful tool with the Gospel” in his Social justice efforts against “White Privilege” and his view of “rampant racism among white evangelicals“.
Jarvis Williams and other CRT advocates are spearheading a divisive movement, instead of biblical unity in the Body of Christ. The talking points are plowed by specialist in the SBC like Williams for years now yet some have been scrubbed from the internet with the removal of and renaming of “Reformed African American Network” to”the Witness”.
“Jarvis Williams, associate professor of New Testament interpretation at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., said in an article posted earlier on the Reformed African American Network website it is impossible to talk about the legacy of white supremacy without discussing “white privilege” — advantages that people have done nothing to earn and may not even know they have, simply because they are white.”
“Christians cannot seriously talk about race, racism, or pursue Christ-centered reconciliation in this country and Christian spaces without having a serious conversation about the privileging of whiteness or without working to leverage the privilege(s) of whiteness in Christian spaces,” wrote Williams, who is black.”
“Williams said one example of white privilege is the assumption in American history that blacks would serve whites because of their belief in white superiority. After slavery was abolished, white supremacists “created a whole system that marginalized black people and kept them at the very bottom of the social order.”
“While many Christians rightly condemn overt expressions of white supremacy, covert expressions of white supremacy are often allowed to flourish in Christian spaces and in society at large because they are either denied or unnoticed,” Williams said.”
TGC COFOUNDER WITH TIM KELLER -D.A. CARSON OF TRINITY EVANGELICAL DIVINITY SCHOOL IS A SPEAKER
D. A. Carson is the co-founder of TGC and it’s President. Carson Signed on to the Mark Yarhouse LGBTQ+ ideology in 2010 when Carson commissioned a White Paper on Yarhouse homosexual orientation narrative and Carson adapted it for TGC, for TEDS and for TGC’s Christ on Campus initiative for campus ministries. Many campus ministries bear the damaging marks of this influence today.
“Dr. Yarhouse is currently the Chair of the task force on LGBT issues for Division 36 (Psychology of Religion and Spirituality) of the American Psychological Association. He was recently invited to write the featured white paper on sexual identity for the Christ on Campus Initiative edited by Don A. Carson for The Gospel Coalition.”
TGC’s Carson also endorsed the book “Single Gay Christian” by Gregory Coles. Coles is the “worship leader” for the Revoice LGBT+ Thriving conference and is involved in the Revoice leadership.
Gregory Coles bio
About the Author
“Gregory Coles is a coauthor of Jim Henson’s “The Dark Crystal” Author Quest, a collection of short stories. Greg spent fifteen years growing up in the Muslim neighborhoods of Southeast Asia. Today he is a PhD student, part-time English instructor at Penn State University, and worship leader in his church.”
D.A. Carson on Coles Book ” Single Gay Christian“
“”To say this book is important is a painful understatement. It is the candid, moving, intensely personal story of a gay young man who wants to live his life under the authority of King Jesus and who refuses to accept the comforting answers proffered by different parts of the culture. Superbly written, this book stands athwart the shibboleths of our day and reminds us what submission to King Jesus looks like, what it feels like. This book needs to be thoughtfully read by straight people and by gay people, by unbelievers and by Christians. It is not to be read with a condescending smirk, but with humility.” (D. A. Carson, president, The Gospel Coalition, research professor of New Testament, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School)”
LIGON DUNCAN OF REFORMED THEOLOGICAL SEMINARY IS A TGC LEADER AND NOW AFA SPOKESPERSON IN THE AFA MOVIE
Ligon Duncan is a TGC Council Member and head of the PCA’s Reformed Theological Seminary of Jackson MISS with over a dozen locations around the country. These locations include NYC in co-operation with TGC co-founder Tim Keller. RTS Orlando location, in partnership with CRU (formerly Campus Crusade), along with current leaders of Keller’s Redeemer City to City formulated a blueprint for the Lausanne movement’s “City Reaching“. The plan promotes Urbanization and Faith Based Partnerships aka Peter Drucker socialism for the church partnering in “Community Development". RTS plan also includes the pro LGBT urban ideology of Canadian professor “urban-ologist” Richard Florida. Reformed Theological Seminary is at the heart of the Social Justice indoctrination taking place in the PCA as Ligon Duncan boast defiantly “Lig Duncan ain’t groovin with no Cultural Marxism“.
If that were truly the case he would have to leave the TGC and RTS to escape the groove.
DUNCAN AND THE ANGLICAN GAY PRIEST HE & TGC ENDORSE
Duncan also endorses the Gay Anglican Priest Sam Allberry and his ministry Living Out who preach “Gay (but celibate) Christianity“. In 2018 TGC’s Tim Keller and wife Kathy joined Allberry speaking at the Living Out London conference. Allberry and company introduced an “LGBTQ+ Church Inclusion Audit” and training for local congregations to encourage the open welcome of the LGBTQ community into the fellowship of the church. Also the audit encourages hiring of and including in family functions and even “Sharing Children” with LGBT+ people in the church.
LIVING OUT INCLUSION AUDIT
“How biblically inclusive is your Church?”
“At our Identity in Christ conference with Tim & Kathy Keller in June 2018 we launched our Living Out Church Audit – a tool to help church leadership teams answer this key question: how biblically inclusive is your church? Unsurprisingly our focus is on those who might identify as LGBTQ+/ same-sex attracted: Jesus included all in a counter-cultural way and we hope this audit will help our churches follow his lead.”
STILL, LIGON DUNCAN ENDORSES SAM ALLBERRY AND LIVING OUT.
“I, I, think if you want to get a, a, a, a, wise, careful biblical take on identity and sexual attraction, either Kevin DeYoung’s book on homosexuality or Sam Allberry’s book, Is God Anti-Gay, will give you a better take on how identity ought to relate to issues in relation to Same-Sex Attraction than the kinds of opinions that were shared at the Revoice Conference, which I find to be unhelpful…”
TGC AND LIVING OUT’S SAM ALLBERRY
Sam Allberry, despite tons of controversy, a writer and the editor of LGBTQ+ issues for The Gospel Coalition.
KEVIN DE YOUNG TGC FAVORITE AND LONG TIME RISING STAR IS AMONG AFA SPEAKERS
DeYoung was purchased out of the Reformed Church in America by powers within the PCA, Keller and Duncan’s denomination. In 2017, the RCA ordained the first openly gay and married pastor who was ‘out’ when he began the ordination process. Perhaps prior knowledge of this prompted De Young to join the PCA & TGC, yet his father remains in the RCA in denominational leadership.
Having DeYoung in TGC has provided the old guard wi
