Why America’s Culture War Isn’t About Democrats and Republicans—It’s Spiritual by DAVID LANE for Charisma News
In an opinion piece for First Things magazine, titled “The Billionaires Behind the LGBT Movement,” Jennifer Bilek writes:
Today’s movement, however, looks nothing like that band of persecuted outcasts. The LGBT rights agenda – note the addition of ‘T’ – has become a powerful, aggressive force in American society. Its advocates stand at the top of media, academia, the professions, and, most important, Big Business and Big Philanthropy. Consider the following case. “Jon Stryker is the grandson of Homer Stryker, an orthopedic surgeon who founded the Stryker Corporation. Based in Kalamazoo, Michigan, the Stryker Corporation sold $13.6 billion in surgical supplies and software in 2018. Jon, heir to the fortune, is gay. In 2000 he created the Arcus Foundation, a nonprofit serving the LGBT community, because of his own experience coming out as homosexual. Arcus has given more than $58.4 million to programs and organizations doing LGBT-related work between 2007 and 2010 alone, making it one of the largest LGBT funders in the world. Stryker gave more than $30 million to Arcus himself in that three-year period, through his stock in Stryker Medical Corporation.”
This once again makes it very clear that the war for the soul of America has nothing to do with Democrats and Republicans. The war is spiritual: “For our fight is not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, and against spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places” (Eph. 6:12).
Which brings us to 2020.
The American Renewal Project is uniquely positioned to accomplish a grand-scale social change through the political process. No one will believe that the kingdom of God is going to arrive on Air Force One.
The American Renewal Project model began with Texas Governor Rick Perry in 2005. Twenty thousand pastors, plus spouses, in 20 states, have been our guests at Pastors and Pews events, with accommodation overnight and all meals provided.
