Popular Evangelical Leaders Continue to Merge With Pro-LGBTQ Activists in the Name of Social Justice

This week, the National Association of Evangelicals held a conference called Flourish which touts itself as “a space to have hard conversations on the toughest issues facing the Church today,” according to its website. “At Flourish, they will be equipped to foster thriving communities and navigate complexity with biblical clarity.”

The conference featured many mainstream Evangelical speakers associated with groups like The Gospel Coalition and the Southern Baptist Convention. Some featured speakers included two of TGC’s top lesbian authors, Rachel Gilson and Rebecca McLaughlin, and also included other well-known names such as Ed Stetzer, Derwin Gray, and former Southern Baptist Convention SEND Network leader, Dhati Lewis. Popular contemporary Christian musician Michael W. Smith led worship.

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore. This reduces our traffic and causes us to move more of our work exclusively to Substack. Members who subscribe to us on Substack will gain exclusive access to all of our work, free of ads and other annoying pop-ups, as well as member-only access to our podcast archive and controversial moderated content.

The event was held at Amy Grant’s venue where she transformed a barn into a music and event venue known as the Loft.

If you weren’t aware, the highly popular and esteemed gospel singer, Amy Grant, last year came out in an interview all in favor of homosexuality.

“Who loves us more than the one who made us?” Grant rhetorically asked Proud Radio host Hunter Kelly in a July 12 interview. “None of us are a surprise to God. Nothing about who we are or what we’ve done. That’s why, to me, it’s so important to set a welcome table. Because I was invited to a table where someone said ‘Don’t be afraid, you’re loved.’ …Gay. Straight. It does not matter.” 

“It doesn’t matter how we behave,” Grant continued. “It doesn’t matter how we’re wired. We’re all our best selves when we believe to our core, ‘I’m loved.’ And then our creativity flourishes. We’re like, ‘I’m gonna arrange flowers on your table and my table.’ When we’re loved, we’re brave enough to say yes to every good impulse that comes to us.”

Does the purity of the Bride of Christ matter at all to these people? No, it doesn’t. These people, who claim to represent Christ and shepherd His flock, abandoned the gospel and sound doctrine decades ago. For people like Ed Stetzer and all the people attending and speaking at this event, social justice is their gospel.

The National Association of Evangelicals does not exist to spread the gospel, it exists to promote cultural Marxism and advance various left-wing agendas such as open borders through its various propaganda efforts around the nation and the world. This is why they don’t mind partnering with homosexuals and LGBTQ activists—because, as Amy Grant says, none of that matters in their Utopian idea of the world apart from Christ. Their reward for their efforts will be in this life.
