Alisa Childers has become very popular in the last few years promoting some scary thing she calls “progressive Christianity”. Sadly, Cameron of Capturing Christianity continues to boost Childers.
If you want a capsule summary of how offensive Childers is, take a look at this Frank Turek tweet in which he promotes Childers’ “course” that explains how Christians like Brian Zahnd, Rachel Held Evans, Greg Boyd, Peter Enns, and Richard Rohr are not Christians at all, but rather a new religion that Childers calls “progressive Christianity.” This is disgusting slander.
And to make matters worse, Childers and Turek are actively monetizing this propaganda in the form of books and courses for conservative white evangelicals (their primary demographic audience).
Is something really “progressive” when it is simply old, outdated ideas returning in a new pair of skinny jeans? Learn to respond to this new religion with Alisa Childers starting March 28. Use code: PC20 for 20% off. expires tomorrow??https://t.co/eiCQiDkDv2 pic.twitter.com/J7MVLkuIjz

But here is the irony of Alisa Childers. That American evangelical white audience that she speaks to, the one that she has gotten all worked up worrying about a false gospel, that audience exhibits high support for Vladimir Putin, it exhibits a high aversion to refugees, it has a long history of racism and misogyny.
If Childers really wants to get serious about the danger of preaching another gospel, perhaps she should shine the spotlight a little closer to home.
