“Adopt a Progressive”

Christians are charged with being the Good Samaritan so let’s set a week a year to “Adopt a Progressive.” Christians must display a willingness to get close to those who are lost in the secular progressive world to tear down their strongholds, 2 Cor. 10:2-6. We need to hear their problems and walk beside them giving them encouragement to know right from wrong. They truly need a mentor by strong male and female Christians, because they are so confused they don’t know there’s a difference between male and female. We need to invite them to week long retreats and/or to men and women bible studies that can provide them with God’s truth, so the sword of the Spirit can “pierce even to the division of their souls, exposing the debasement of their thoughts, and turning their secular progressive hearts to righteousness,” Hebrews 4:12 paraphrased.

Another obstacle is they will act like they are entitled and want someone to care and feed them. This may be a problem at first because they don’t know, “… If anyone will not work, neither shall he eat.” 2 Thessalonians 3:10- TLB.  But don’t worry, it will not take long for them to get hungry, and get real employment.

Adoption cannot be done by one night stand Christians, because the world today is no different than the world when Pontus Pilate stood before Christ and said; “What is truth.” Secular progressives have no understanding of an absolute truth. So, as an example of how to identify and search for true secular progressives to adopt, we must look to AO or something.  I won’t reveal her whole name to protect her from being identified as a follower of the lesser god. She is like many secular progressives that have been taken “captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ, Colossians 2:8 NIV.” They view themselves as elite, of course this is pride before the fall, but do not tell them this at first. Like most secular progressives, she has a habit of bloviating whatever comes into her mind, and she believes it. This delusion is explained in 2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 NKJV, “And for this reason God will sends them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.”

Another problem after adoption is progressives use blaming others as their main tactic to deflect the truth of their own evil behavior. They blame and slander all things from God, while displaying a sincere hatred for America, our history, and anybody whose skin is white. This of course is the warped philosophy of a debased mind Paul was talking about in Romans 1:22-32. “They professing to be wise, they became fools and worship and serve the creature rather than the Creator.” Therefore, someone desperately needs to adopt them, and lead them to the promise land, and happily, they will discover that arrogance and socialism is not included.

Christians have asked, why Foxhole Ministry cares so much for Secular Progressives that we want frontline Christians to adopt them? The reason, seculars are similar to adopting a lost puppy. Like progressives puppies do not know the meaning of life, do not know who they are, and do not know who they are barking at. So be very careful through the adoption process, and keep in mind these puppies bite like lions, and bark like Hyenas. They can turn on you, like a wild animal, if they believe they can get good press.

Sadly, many secular progressives may need a Damascus experience to be saved, but our mission is to speak the Holy Spirit of truth into their lives as fishers of men. Then, it is God’s part to catch them. To conclude, adopting a secular progressive is very difficult missionary work. It has to be based on loving those who have a puppy’s character, but a predator’s mentality. My suggestion is for you and your church is to pray for hours on end before attempting to adopt a progressive, and if not, adopt a puppy!
