Russell Moore, head of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) is well-known for his proclivity to incite racial and ethnic division among the Church while berating American and Western culture in favor of multiculturalism and communitarianism. Moore has been a leading advocate in the Evangelical push for open borders and amnesty as his relationship with the Evangelical Immigration Table has led him into close proximity with billionaire financiers like George Soros.
Whether it be Moore’s breaking bread with the gay community, his softening tone on homosexuality, referring to Jesus as an “illegal alien,” promotion and teaching of inherent “white guilt” by sole virtue of skin color, yoking with Democrat and socialist groups, serving as an editor for a Catholic magazine, coddling the transgender community, partnering with animal rights groups and referring to animal rights as a “gospel issue,” fighting for the right to build an Islamic mosque, or accepting donations from billionaire leftists like George Soros to advance open-borders and amnesty, one thing is for certain, Russell Moore’s positions are not Christian.
Now, we can add one idiotic and un-Christian act to this list.
In a video published by @WokePreacherTV on Twitter, Russell Moore compares Western Civilization to the demonic possession “legion” found in Mark 5. Moore somehow equates Western Culture’s individualism and its perceived “tribalism” — which, by the way, is found in every culture, particularly the non-Western tribal cultures — to the “isolation” and “smothering” of demonic possession.
After giving a detailed description of the man in Mark 5 being possessed by legion, he then goes on to say that the devil “works differently” but the “pattern is the same” in Western culture.
“The devil works differently in disenchanted times,” Moore says. “He doesn’t want to call attention to himself for obvious reasons. But the pattern works the same in contemporary western culture. Because we live in a time where people are bound up in both the isolation of individualism and the smothering of tribalism at the exact same time.”
Russell Moore has just called Western culture demonic, there is no way around that. He actually said that it is the devil that is behind the tenets of Western culture.
