What to Make of Russell Brand’s Baptism?

What do we make of powerful influencers such as Candace Owens and Russell Brand embracing the Christian reset? First Candace Owens and Jordan Peterson’s wife converted to the Catholic Faith and, just last weekend, Russell Brand was baptized.

Why does this matter? Because any serious mainstream move to return to Christian roots is a direct attack on The Great Reset. We’ve got to look at a Russell Brand baptism as just that – part of a trend that could seriously undermine the anti-Christian agenda of the Globalists. And in that context, I’m not chiefly interested in dissecting Brand’s theology... at least not yet. Why not? Because I am NOT looking for a savior here... I already have One. In the world today there is almost NO CATHOLIC LEADERSHIP left. The pope himself is promoting pagan spirituality, so why in the world would we expect a guy like Russell Brand to have already developed a crystal-clear understanding of what Christianity means? I am looking at Globalism's war on religion and the promotion of demonic scientism, the rocket fuel for which is distilled Christophobia.

So, whether you “trust” a guy like Russell Brand or not is entirely beside the point. He’s breaking ranks and encouraging his millions of followers to do the same, and THAT’s what strategically matters most to us in this moment, because it suggests a growing cultural fatigue with the secularist regime a fatigue factor of which we must take full advantage.

The Takeaway: This week, millions of Brand's followers are discussing his baptism, his Rosary, and his claim to be seeking refuge in Jesus Christ. Don't you think we should at least try to bring some coherent influence to bear on that conversation and to the cultural phenomenon it represents, i.e., a rejection of the antichristian agenda of the most powerful Christophobes on earth? What do we have to lose from trying?

What we need to do is encourage him to keep seeking Christ while augmenting and promoting his public rejection of the demonic alternative being foisted on us all by a common enemy — the Godless Globalist Elites.

I have every confidence that our side is capable of recognizing the difference between a blanket endorsement of Brand's neophyte understanding of Christianity, on the one hand, and healthy encouragement for him to keep seeking the fullness of Christ's Truth, on the other — Truth, by the way, that is being buried by the Catholic hierarchy, including Team Francis.

Honestly, I find elitism supremely counterproductive, no matter which side engages in it. You don't trust Russell Brand? Well, who is asking you to trust him? What we need to do is encourage him to keep seeking Christ while augmenting and promoting his public rejection of the demonic alternative being foisted on us all by a common enemy — the Godless Globalist Elites.

I discuss all of this in this week’s Underground (below). I hope you’ll watch it and tell me what you think. Because we’re running out of time, and it’s time for us to go out into the middle of the field of battle, with the banner of Christ the King raised high, and patiently do whatever we can to help so many abandoned sheep come closer to the fullness of Truth.
