Powerful Duo Start New Venture: Judeo-Christian Principles Take on Secularism, Socialism

Jenna Ellis, an ambassador for the Falkirk Center for Faith and Liberty, appeared on Monday's edition of CBN News' Faith Nation to talk about the new think tank and why it's needed. Faith Nation is seen weeknights on the CBN News Channel.  For a programming schedule, click here.  Welcome to a new and vitally important cultural battle: the time-tested certainty of traditional biblical Christianity versus the dangers of secularism and socialism. Now, two new conservative influential heavyweights have teamed up to fight and win the ultimate victory.  A new think tank is being launched by Liberty University called the Falkirk Center for Faith and Liberty. The university's president Jerry Falwell and Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk have joined forces with a mission to, "proclaim the Truth of Jesus Christ" and in the process, "advance His Kingdom and renew American ideals." In short, the goal is to not only protect the fundamental Judeo-Christian principles upon which America was founded but to vigorously educate and explain them to an ill-informed younger generation. "The Falkirk Center believes the role of government in America was intended only to protect our God-given rights and that it is a distortion of the teachings of Jesus Christ by the Left to suggest that Jesus was a socialist or that He instructed countries how they should be governed," Jerry Falwell Jr. tells CBN News . "Authoritarian government has always been the enemy of the church because the church has always been the grassroots source of positive change in every society except when the government-controlled the church."In today's society, there are growing and valid concerns that younger generations are buying more of what the secular left is preaching on socialism and liberal, secular principles. A recent Survey Monkey Online Poll shows 61 percent of those between 18 and 24 have a positive reaction to the word, 'socialism.' A YouGov poll showed that twenty percent of Millennials actually believe the Communist Manifesto better guarantees freedom and equality for all than the Declaration of Independence. Compare that to just five percent of the Generation X population that came before them. "Young Christians are becoming increasingly Marxist in their political leaning," Charlie Kirk said during an interview with CBN News . "The FalKirk center will seek to educate the public about the inseparable harmony between natural rights and the Gospel of Jesus Christ while rejecting the secular agenda of the left."A rising number of younger Americans aren't just turning to government for solutions; they're also turning away from the church and biblical principles. A Pew poll shows a majority of Millenials (53 percent) seldom or never read the Bible. A Public Religion Research Institute poll revealed that only 25 percent between the ages of 18-29 say that the United States is currently a Christ ...Read more
