The Elites do not like traditional religion because they want people to have no loyalties other than to the new authoritarian scientific dictatorship they are installing. They consider God, the Bible, and churches to be potential rivals. They are willing to tolerate Big Religion for a time , but their ultimate goal is to create a One World Religion to go along with their One World Government. And many modern "Christian Churches" are going along with it in their desire to fit in with worldly ways, be "relevant" and "authentic", in order to keep the donations rolling in (see R-17 Dump "Woke" Churches! and R-20 How To Tell If A Church is "Woke").

In a few recent Resistance articles, I mentioned the book
 Why Social Justice Is Not Biblical Justice: An Urgent Appeal to Fellow Christians in a Time of Social Crisis, by Scott David Allen. I bought this book shortly after it came out, and highly to recommend it to others, particularly believers attending churches that seem to be rejecting traditional Biblical values, while embracing social justice concepts (all in the name of love, tolerance, and diversity, of course).

The book does an excellent job of explaining the difference between politically-correct "social justice" and true Biblical justice. Social justice has invaded many modern churches, which have become Biblically weak as they seek to embrace worldly acceptance. Sadly, most church-goers today don't understand enough about social justice, or Biblical justice for that matter, to see the dangerous distortions embedded in the social justice concept.

From the publisher: 

"Prepare yourself to defend the truth against the greatest worldview threat of our generation.

In recent years, a set of ideas rooted in postmodernism and neo-Marxist critical theory have merged into a comprehensive worldview. Labeled “social justice” by its advocates, it has radically redefined the popular understanding of justice. It purports to value equality and diversity and to champion the cause of the oppressed.

Yet far too many Christians have little knowledge of this ideology, and consequently, don’t see the danger. Many evangelical leaders confuse ideological social justice with biblical justice. Of course, justice is a deeply biblical idea, but this new ideology is far from biblical.

It is imperative that Christ-followers, tasked with blessing their nations, wake up to the danger, and carefully discern the difference between Biblical justice and its destructive counterfeit.

This book aims to replace confusion with clarity by holding up the counterfeit worldview and the Biblical worldview side-by-side, showing how significantly they differ in their core presuppositions. It challenges Christians to not merely denounce the false worldview, but offer a better alternative—the incomparable Biblical worldview, which shapes cultures marked by genuine justice, mercy, forgiveness, social harmony, and human dignity."

It is more concerned with helping people survive modern threats (world wars, economic collapse, and a technocratic police state, for three examples) rather than surviving bear attacks and getting lost in the woods.
