Saving Evangelicalism From Radicals is the mission of Evangelical Deep State. Just about anyone within the protestant traditions can claim Evangelical status. The only real requirement is to believe in Jesus Christ through faith alone. The term Evangelicalism comes from the Greek word for gospel. The word is fitting then to be an umbrella term for diverse Christian populations of similar mind.
Let me state first that Christianity has had many issues; all religions do. The problem Evangelicalism has had for hundreds of years is an “us vs. them” mentality Unlike Roman Catholics in which the Pope is the ultimate authority on scripture, evangelicals take their lead from a variety of chosen leaders which often present different beliefs.
Evangelicals have been separating the sheep from the goats for years. If you do not fall in line with certain biblical principles you will not fit in. I had an argument with an evangelical who believed unless you were baptized in water God could not let you enter heaven. There is only so much you can say in a case like that. I do understand if God truly acted in such a manner than God would not be a God rather a creation of our imagination. Kind of like a biblical Nightmare on Elm Street. Many within the Evangelical community are probably mentally ill. Fear, depression, suicide, living a fake life are just some detriments of the “faith.” Evangelicals act in the same way as modern day Pharisees.
Jesus spoke of them; “They tie up heavy, cumbersome loads and put them on other people’s shoulders, but they themselves are not willing to lift a finger to move them.” (Matthew 23:4, NIV).
What is the Point of the Deep State?
What is the point of the Evangelical Deep State? Saving evangelicalism From radicals, of course! I grew up in what would be called a classical evangelical community. I went to an evangelical college and seminary in preparation to become a pastor. Through my experiences I came to positions that went in direct opposition to mainstream Evangelicalism. The more I examined the issue it seemed as if mainstream Evangelicalism was the cause for all sorts of divisions largely based on exegesis, tradition and beliefs of key leaders. I came to the same conclusion as Jesus. Saving Evangelicalism from radicals is crucial.
“Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law? Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. 39 And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself.’ All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments.” (Matthew 22:36-40, NIV).
I have compiled a short list of divisive positions of most mainstream Evangelicals. Biblical inerrancy, acceptance of the LGBTQ+ as members and ordained leaders, women’s rights, a literal hell, racism, immigration and probably one of the biggest issues as of right now, the Evangelical takeover of politics. There was a reason the founders of the United States believed that the church has no place in the governing of the nation. The various divisive topics mentioned above are an example. We the people are not a church. We are a nation which contains churches who can freely worship as they will. The Evangelical Deep State is very concerned about the mingling of politics and religion
There is Hope
There is hope! A hope in Jesus, and a hope in the people we love. We are all created in the image of God. Evangelicals have been treating God badly for a long time. We the Evangelical Deep State desires to infiltrate the church with knowledge. Our mission is to love, leading a generation of Evangelicals from politics and division to peace and unity. You are not alone. There are thousands of us and growing daily who have left the traditional church out of disdain for their ungodly actions. This humble page is just one spear in a powerful movement to free Evangelicalism from its corrupt actions and rise up passionate followers of Christ without the burdens of doctrine and dogma. In the good fight in saving Evangelicalism from radicals.
Please join us in this fight!
