Nationwide push against extremism launched by evangelical leaders

200+ faith leaders in the Evangelical Christian movement signed on to a letter this week slamming ’Christian Nationalism’, and the role it played in the Jan. 6 riot that overwhelmed the U.S. Capitol. The letter describes Christian Nationalism as ’a version of American nationalism that is trying to camouflage itself as Christianity.’ Church leaders said it is a ’heretical version of our faith.’

They should be very careful considering: 1. Their primary focus should be on God's kingdom, not earthly issues. and.... 2. In certain circles, evangelists are considered 'extremist'. Someday you might find yourself judged the same way you judged others.

"Just as many Muslim leaders have felt the need to denounce distorted, violent versions of their faith, we feel the urgent need to denounce this violent mutation of our faith," they continued. Not even in same realm, as far as comparisons go. Denouncing those of your faith that are regularly beheading heretics on camera is not the same denouncing those present at a protest that turned violent.

These guys don’t get it. “Christian Nationalism” is just a term to describe ones hierarchy of authority, you have God at the top, family, state(or ethnicity), then nation (Last two interchangeable). All Christians are a nation in the literal sense- we all derive from a common ancestry and culture. These heretics don’t understand why they are Christians, and what it means, typical of Protestant blabbering.

Evangelical Leaders like Kenneth Copeland are deciples of Satan. Their followers who give the Leaders money to buy Jets and mansions are victims of satans spell. They all will probably go to hell.

Extremism, to the point of hatred or violence is sinful... Whether BLM, KKK or any other. Fighting in self (or other) defense is NOT extremist.

They are a root cause of said violence. Their unwavering support of the most immoral leader in history, their fermenting of silly conspiracy theories, and less we forget, their anointment of Trump as “savior”.

This is great, nothing like a schism among organised religion to swell the ranks of the non believers. Atheist or non religious is the fastest growing belief group in the world for a reason.

Extremism is a really bad word for the current global society. It can only be really addresses if all other social variants include in such drives

Ironically this effort seems to be isolated to the extreme liberal wing of “Evangelicalism.” How many of the four hallmarks of Evangelicalism do these folks hold to? Based on a quick review of the list of signers, I’d say probably 0 or 1. By those standards, Richard Dawkins could also claim to be an “Evangelical.”

I'm not condoning hate groups, but they seem to have forgotten that Jesus was considered an extremist in his time. The only difference being, he didnt preach hate. In fact, he said his greatest commandment was to love one another. If you're truly a follower of Jesus, you dont have room to hate anyone. Modern christianity has mostly turned into turning your nose up at anyone who doesnt believe like you do, and I dont believe that's what we're supposed to do. I hear it all the time when people go off about how "Christians" are ruining the world. Not all of us are like that. Leave the judgment up to God and go on with your lives.

Funny how most Christian leaders dont even go to church anymore or read the bible. Maybe they are the fakes no?
