“A Progressive Christian Is a Fake Christian” – Minister Claims Liberalism to be the Greatest Threat to the Church

In a candid interview with FOX News, Deacon Calvin Robinson, a Free Church of England minister and prominent British conservative commentator, voiced his concerns about the rising influence of progressive Christianity. Here’s the whole story.

Robinson began by challenging the term “progressive Christian,” which he views as an “oxymoron.”

True Christianity Is Conservative

He argues that true Christianity is inherently conservative in its values and teachings.

For Robinson, core Christian principles such as the sanctity of marriage between one man and one woman and the belief that God created humans as male and female reflect conservative values that align with the teachings of the Bible.

Progressive Christianity Is a Distortion

According to Robinson, progressive Christianity represents a distortion of these fundamental Christian values.

He suggests that those who identify as progressive Christians are embracing a departure from traditional Christian teachings and morality.

Robinson highlighted that Christianity, as he sees it, is rooted in a set of unchanging truths, making it incompatible with ideologies that seek to redefine or reinterpret those truths.

He also argued that liberalism poses one of the most significant threats to the faith in the current era.

He believes that liberalism often distorts or misrepresents fundamental Christian principles to advance its ideological agenda.

Rooted in Twisted Versions

Robinson characterizes liberalism as a belief system rooted in twisted versions of the truth.

Neo-Marxism

He highlights the dangers of ideologies such as trans queer theory, gender theory, and critical race theory, which he contends originate from a common source – what he terms “neo-Marxism” or even communism.

In his view, these ideologies are incompatible with Christianity and represent the work of the enemy.

Not Let Our Guard Down for Liberalism

To support his argument, Robinson said, “So many popes, so many cardinals, so many good holy men throughout history have said this quite explicitly. And so, we shouldn’t let our guard down for communism. We certainly shouldn’t let it be neo-Marxism, and therefore we should not let our guard down for liberalism.”

Contemporary Cultural Shifts

In his view, progressive Christianity contradicts this understanding of truth by attempting to modify or adapt Christian teachings to align with contemporary cultural shifts.

A Trans Man Is a Fake Man

To illustrate his point, Robinson said, “And progressive Christianity – I see it much like trans – like a trans man. The word trans in that sentence means fake, right? A trans woman is a fake woman. A trans man is a fake man.”

Twitter Users Expressed Their Views

Several social media users shared their thoughts on the incident.

One Twitter user wrote, “Calvin, you are a brave man and have my full support. I would always stand up and be counted as one of your followers. We need more Christians like you.”

Left Liberal Political Ideology

Another user added, “Progressive Christianity means “I will follow the Bible and Christ only to the extent it doesn’t conflict with my Left liberal political ideology. In any conflict, I’ll pick Leftism. Since Leftism is all-encompassing, nothing is left of Christianity except a facade.”

Progress Itself Is a Myth

A third user commented, “Progress itself is a myth. There is neither direction nor any state terminus. It is a utopian delusion which largely reduces to a self-indulgent and destructive novelty for its own sake.”

Christ-Like

A fourth user wrote, “To be “Christ-like” is difficult. It’s much easier to lower the bar. But easy is not working for our moral welfare.”
