American Association of Evangelicals
By Fred Comella
National events such as the recent suspicious package (bomb) scare continue to reinforce my stated belief that only a return to the truth and accountability of Christ will save our wounded nation. I spend a fair amount of time in DC folks and I can tell you without reservation that this whole election cycle has highlighted how critical our need for God’s intervention really is.
I suppose that when I was first saved I began to understand that any efforts we make as human kind must first be rooted in our Christian faith. God has since afforded me boundaries and empathy so I might better analyze any debate before verbally shredding someone of a different political leaning or viewpoint. But I believe it was when Representative Steve Scalise was shot and almost killed about two miles from where I usually stay in Crystal City, that things really began to hit home for me. Political rhetoric was ratcheting up at a pace we hadn’t seen post Trump victory, and I truly felt the tug of my faith in Christ as a wholly necessary part of any appropriate solution to what was/is ailing us. The answer to the question of how we bring our Lord and Savior into such a swamp of lies, corruption and violence remains somewhat elusive however.
So how do we interject Christ into the issues of our time in such a way as it’s viewed as a positive and not a negative? (Not sure how that could ever be a negative). Nevertheless, I’ve always felt that so long as we stay true to the Gospel and be up front with others of different opinions or faiths about who we are, what we believe and why, the choices of those folks are ultimately up to them and to God. Beyond that, the old saying, “you can lead a horse to water” is appropriate in the application of truth to any argument. There must also be a departure from our natural human desire to sometimes be confrontational, as our points can be lost in the political rhetoric fairly quickly. In the end, one word keeps coming back to me. Nothing we do or say, no political opinion or ideological belief system will ever make sense without TRUTH. And this seems to be the problem with our political and social conundrums today…
In some of my more recent articles for “The GNT” it’s been almost impossible for me to keep the politics of the day out of my writing. This is mainly because Christianity has been dragged into the fray by those wishing to add it to their list of accountability targets. Consequently, I’ve struggled with those professing Christianity and projecting themselves as speakers of the Word and the Truth, especially when they appear to be attempting to influence folks politically. We are hearing this stuff with alarming regularity of late, “This is ok”, “that’s ok” with God and the Bible. These are faith charlatans as I like to call them. For instance, how does one call himself/herself a Christian of any denomination, and still support destroying God’s greatest gift to all of us, the very life He breaths into us? How can we even begin a legitimate debate about “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”, when some won’t even acknowledge the first word?
Now this isn’t just for the average church goer navigating God’s world on Sunday. The questions of abortion, transgender, gay marriage and a host of other arguments, not all pertaining exclusively to social agendas mind you, are being addressed by so-called clergy and even “Evangelicals” out there, claiming the truthful and moral high ground, all the while embracing and even preaching the immoral and Biblically challenged low ground. Who are these people and how in the world can they claim Christian faith, but preach a false doctrine with clear and divisive political overtones? Well right on que, my editor and chief principle for “The GNT” sent along my assignment for the month, complete with God’s directions to the answers I seek. Enter the “American Association of Evangelicals”, or AAE.
AAE is promoting some startling information, which I’ve done my due diligence to corroborate, and it goes a long way to answering many of my questions relating to some of the so-called leaders, Christian and otherwise, being trotted out there for public consumption by a corrupt and often complicit American news media. I suppose it should come as no surprise, that the wild rhetoric and agenda driven 24-hour news cycle would lend itself to control the message of faith as well as all the other messages they try to manipulate every day. What better way for the likes of super rich Socialist George Soros and others whose stated and nefarious intentions are widely known, to get to the root of good and replace it with the root of evil?
George Soros, of “The Center for Popular Democracy” and “Open Society Foundation” fame is on the record opposing all that our nation was founded upon. His hatred of President Donald Trump is no secret and he has fought “Make America Great Again” as a concept at every turn. Moreover, for those of you who might not have heard, the Democrat party of JFK is no longer. It’s now the party of Obama and has embraced Soros (and his money) as a willing participant in the fight to marginalize The United States of America on the world stage.
It makes sense then, that Soros himself, and those like him, who have the means and power, will try to infiltrate the Christian faith arena as just another hurdle in their quest to rid the world of God, His word and His righteous accountability. In their Global view, there is no, and there can be no God of the Bible.
This past week I spoke with Kelly Kullberg, founder and spokesperson for the American Association of Evangelicals at AmericanEvangelicals.com. Kullberg is editor and co-author of the bestselling book of testimonies, Finding God at Harvard and founder of the Veritas Forum at Harvard and now in two hundred universities, and has also served as a missionary with widows and orphans in El Salvador, Guatemala, Peru, Russia and the Dominican Republic and as a chaplain at Harvard for a decade.
Kelly explained that Christian leaders are increasingly concerned about the funding of atheist billionaires like Soros, who are intent on dividing and manipulating the Church for political gain. Why you ask? Simple really. Soros has concluded that dividing the pro-life, and pro-faith evangelical voters will boost his progressive candidate’s chances to win elections. (And he is correct). It’s a classic Socialist tactic.
Kelly told me, Soros understands that funding individuals like Rev. Jim Wallis of Sojourners will facilitate the promotion of Left wing so-called evangelical leaders willing to cherry-pick Bible words and misrepresent God’s Word in order to appeal to unsuspecting Christian voters. Worse yet, these actors redefine and portray the Gospel as their own “social justice” agenda to include subjects like gender confusion, pansexuality, abortion, Socialism and an ever-growing list of Leftist talking points. Moreover, these talking points must be validated for the “greater good”, but realistically do nothing but further the decay of our free republic.
As I’ve said many times, “revisionist history”, and in this case Biblical revisionist history, “serves nothing or no one well” (Patriot64). With this in mind, AAE is a growing, informal coalition of Christians who see that timeless Biblical truth is the highest love for human beings. They have three (3) goals: 1) Share the Christ-centered gospel; 2) Teach biblical worldview on today’s issues; 3) Engage opposition to the gospel and nation”.
So, as it appears there are clearly operators bent on changing the face of a nation, long established as one to be emulated and sought out for reasons of its Biblically rooted and Christian foundational principles. Accordingly, the AAE has established itself as an organization prepared to do the unthinkable, that being correct the record and call out the phony “Rented Evangelicals” and stand with Christ and the truth. This is powerful stuff in the 21st Century my friends, and especially encouraging after eight years of an anti-Christian and failed ideological president in the Whitehouse.
Every day we’re faced with the reality of a nation and its tenets under attack. Therefore, we often turn to our faith for enlightenment and guidance. Unfortunately, we may then be faced with the aforementioned charlatans masquerading as our spiritual leaders. But their message seems foreign to us and not in keeping with what “We the People” know to be the truth. AAE offers itself as an organization to help us focus on the real and Biblical truth of our existence. Moreover, they highlight how political correctness and evil disguised as tolerance are permeating our creed and dividing our country. AAE provides a glimpse into our recent past, which ultimately helps us consider a future if we succumb to the words of the “rented evangelicals” instead of God’s Word:
From the AAE website:
Consider some of the consequences of ‘Progressive’ political activism over the past few decades:
- A growth industry trafficking in human baby organs and body parts, funded and defended by the Democratic Party.
- The abandonment of a biblical view of marriage that protected and liberated children and adults from centuries of pagan slavery, poverty, polygamy and non-life-giving sexuality.
- The Transgender agenda including gender “reorientation” of our children, also being forced on our neighbors, businesses, schools, military and churches.
- Socialism, higher taxes and government regulations. These policies stifle human creativity, productivity, family stability and generosity. Such policies increase joblessness, welfare dependency and national debt.
- Heightened racial division and tension, and the growing phenomenon of paid demonstrators being recruited and dispatched to instigate protests that often become riots.
- Open borders and lawless ‘sanctuary’ cities increasing drugs, disease, crime, gangs and terrorism.
- Amnesty efforts that attempt to give voting rights to millions of non-citizens, giving the results of our elections and nation’s future to many who disregarded our laws, customs, history, identity and values. This does not honor our long-standing tradition of legal immigration to those who come in good faith and to assimilate and bless America.
- Forced refugee resettlement in hundreds of American cities without citizen consent, mandated by the Obama-era federal government in partnership with the United Nations. (Refugeeswere primarily non-assimilating Muslims, while authorities often reject persecuted Christians.)
- Hostility towards Judeo-Christian religious liberty in our courts, large corporations, media and universitiesincluding the suppression of conservative speakers, free thought and moral education.
- The growing recognition of a “Deep State” within our government, including ideological bureaucrats embedded in our DOJ, IRS, FBI and Department of State, that intimidatesand seeks to subvert conservative, patriotic and Christian groups that disagree with the ‘Progressive’ political establishment.
All of this is true and then some. These are facts consistent with what we’re seeing all around us right now, today. Consequently, it has never been more important for us to seek and to know the truth, not only from a political and civic standpoint, but more importantly we must understand and always view our heritage through a Biblical and Christ Centered lens. For if we do this, and if we are a bit more cautious when listening to those claiming to bring the Word of God but whose doctrines bear no resemblance to the truth, then and only then can we begin to make the changes which will ensure our children’s spiritual future in God’s world.
Let’s face it my friends, even in the days when our Lord and Savior walked this planet as man there were those selling a bogus bill of goods. The Bible tells of countless interactions where Jesus had to set the record straight and bring people to the light. For our part in 2018 we mustn’t run from that truth. We mustn’t bury our heads when we feel uncomfortable and/or challenged. Our future depends on us holding our leaders to account for “truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth”.
To that end, take the test my wife gave her mom some years back when she quizzed the self-proclaimed dyed in the wool Liberal on her beliefs. Ask the tough questions of your friends and family about what they believe and why. Ask them about their principles and the values they wish to pass on to their children and grand-children. And then take pleasure in telling them they may not be of the party or ideology they think they are. Tell them the party of JFK is no more, and that if they truly desire to leave a better country to their posterity, they should thoroughly research the candidates for the up-coming mid-term elections, as well as seek out a trusted faith leader in their community for the answers to the more difficult questions. To that end, AAE can help.
For a list of so-called “evangelical” organizations, “pastors” and “priests”, actually funded by George Soros and portrayed as “leaders” in the Christian community, and for fact-based research and videos with the scoop on “rented evangelicals” go to americanevangelicals.com.
The AAE website is spectacular and you may extract some valuable info there. You can also read and sign their “Call to Repentance & Renewal” and view their newest movie Soros’s Formula for Killing America. You can also support them financially if this is your calling. Again the website is americanevangelicals.com.
Have a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving my friends…
October 3, 1863
By the President of the United States of America.
The year that is drawing towards its close, has been filled with the blessings of fruitful fields and healthful skies. To these bounties, which are so constantly enjoyed that we are prone to forget the source from which they come, others have been added, which are of so extraordinary a nature, that they cannot fail to penetrate and soften even the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God. In the midst of a civil war of unequalled magnitude and severity, which has sometimes seemed to foreign States to invite and to provoke their aggression, peace has been preserved with all nations, order has been maintained, the laws have been respected and obeyed, and harmony has prevailed everywhere except in the theatre of military conflict; while that theatre has been greatly contracted by the advancing armies and navies of the Union. Needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defense, have not arrested the plough, the shuttle or the ship; the axe has enlarged the borders of our settlements, and the mines, as well of iron and coal as of the precious metals, have yielded even more abundantly than heretofore. Population has steadily increased, notwithstanding the waste that has been made in the camp, the siege and the battle-field; and the country, rejoicing in the consciousness of augmented strength and vigor, is permitted to expect continuance of years with large increase of freedom. No human counsel hath devised nor hath any mortal hand worked out these great things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy. It has seemed to me fit and proper that they should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens. And I recommend to them that while offering up the ascriptions justly due to Him for such singular deliverances and blessings, they do also, with humble penitence for our national perverseness and disobedience, commend to His tender care all those who have become widows, orphans, mourners or sufferers in the lamentable civil strife in which we are unavoidably engaged, and fervently implore the interposition of the Almighty Hand to heal the wounds of the nation and to restore it as soon as may be consistent with the Divine purposes to the full enjoyment of peace, harmony, tranquility and Union.
In testimony whereof, I have hereunto set my hand and caused the Seal of the United States to be affixed.
Done at the City of Washington, this Third day of October, in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-three, and of the Independence of the United States the Eighty-eighth.
By the President: Abraham Lincoln

Secretary of State
