To say that we do not have very much in common with VCY America or its flagship radio program “Crosstalk” would be something of an understatement:
Crosstalk covers the issues that affect our world, our nation, our families and the Christian church from a perspective centered in the Word of God. Whether we discuss the economy, the political scene, the continuing moral collapse of our nation, legislation that affects the family, or the state of evangelicalism, our authority is found in the unchanging standard of the Holy Scriptures.
But one thing that we do have in common is a concern about Dominon Theology and its increasing prevalence within the Religious Right movement, especially as it pertains to Janet Porter and her sphere of activists.
As we noted earlier, Porter used her WorldNetDaily column to lash out at Discernment Ministries and its blog, Herescope, which was instrumental in covering Porter’s May Day rally and its ties to Dominion Theology. This coverage ultimately lead VCY America to sever its ties with Porter’s radio program which, in turn, has rendered Porter’s organization almost non-existent.
In the wake of this decision, Crosstalk hosted a special program last month with Herescope’s Sarah Leslie to expose the dangers of Dominionism … and today Crosstalk hosted another program with Leslie to respond to Porter’s attacks during which both Leslie and host Ingrid Schlueter marveled at Porter’s viciousness … to which I say, “welcome to our world.”
I will post a link to the entire program once VCY makes it available on their website (UPDATE: here is the link to the program) but for now I’m going to post two clips that I recorded myself.
In this first clip, Schlueter says that she does not have enough time to debunk all of the lies in Porter’s column, but that she, like many others, is horrified by the cultural collapse in this country. But the collapse of our culture is not the result of Christians not caring, but rather Christians (like Porter) who are abandoning the Gospel in favor of false teachers (like Cindy Jacobs) who spread lies and theologies that are not supported by Biblical truth. Leslie then recounts her long history as a Religious Right activist, especially as the head of Iowa Right to Life in the 1980s when she knew Jack Kemp and Pat Robertson on a first name basis and regularly received death threats because of her activism:
In this second clip, Leslie delivers an concise and informative explanation of New Apostolic Reformation/Dominionism/7 Mountains Theology movements where she explains that this is not your typical “get out the vote” type of activism, but rather a concerted effort to literally take over all aspects of our culture so as to bring about the Kingdom of God here on Earth. At the end, Leslie finally says “I don’t know how to say it any other way: they’re wacky. If you go and look at YouTube, they are barking like dogs and laughing like hyenas”:
