A Very Unholy Alliance: John Macarthur's The Master's College Sponsors a Joint Forum and Enters a Long-Term Partnership with the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research
The intent of this article is to prove John Macarthur is allied with organizations dedicated to building Satan's New World Order (see The Transformation of John Macarthur's Church). This article could be very lengthy if I chose to research and detail fully the agenda of the American Enterprise Institute, the Brookings Institute, and Laissez-faire economics--so I won't.
On November 10, 2010, The Master's College sponsored and co-hosted a forum with the American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research (AEI). Acording to The Masters College website, "The Master's College joined with the respected American Enterprise Institute (AEI) from Washington, D.C. to co-host its first joint forum. The event featured a discussion with Dr. Arthur Brooks, president of AEI, and Dr. John MacArthur, president of The Master's College. The event was moderated by Jack Cox, Vice President of Advancement. This event is part of a new initiative focusing on Biblical values and economics."
Featured Speakers at The Master's College-AIE Forum
Dr. John Macarthur: Troubling facts about John Macarthur include the following: His church's principal source of funding, The Believers Foundation, is funded and directed by Lorena Jaeb, who was and may still be a Governor of the Council for National Policy, which is considered to be a Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) front org. John Macarthur's operations, including The Master's College, receive approximately $2,000,000 annually from The Believers Foundation.
"According to Dr. Quigley, the Council on Foreign Relations is one of several front organizations set up by the network's inner circle to advance its schemes. The ultimate goal: a New World Order." (David Rockefeller is the Honorary Chairman of the CFR.)
Dr. Arthur Brooks: According to his Wikipedia bio, Brooks, in addition to being the President of AEI, is a Roman Catholic who "[pursued] a doctorate at the Frederick S. Pardee RAND Graduate School, a public policy program located at the RAND Corporation, where he was also a doctoral fellow. After receiving his PhD in policy analysis in 1998, Brooks continued to be affiliated with RAND." Click here to see that Dr Arthur Brooks has also been invited to speak at The Council for National Policy. Dr. Brooks also promotes Mormonism. Speaking at BYU on February 24, 2009, Dr. Brooks promoted Mormonism and quoted from the Book of Mormon. Click here to the video link on the BYU website to view Dr. Brooks' BYU speech. Jack Cox: Master’s College Vice President of Advancement; founded The Communications Institute in 2003 as he presently serves as the Institute's President and Chief Executive Officer. Board members of the Communications Institute include:
Joseph P. Kalt
Professor of International Political Economy
John F. Kennedy School of Government
Michael D. Rich
Executive Vice President
According to Jack Cox's bio on the Communications Institute's website:
"Mr. Cox founded and served for 27 years as President/CEO and founder of the Foundation for American Communications (FACS), an international nonprofit institution...The foundation's educational programs...were funded by such diverse organizations as the Ford Foundation, Rockfeller Foundation, Kellogg Foundation, the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, NBC, CNN, ABC, and nearly every major newspaper group in the United States...Graduates of FACS programs went on to serve as White House Correspondents and anchors for network television news."
American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research
The American Enterprise Institute for Public Policy Research is a private, not-for-profit institution dedicated to research and education on issues of governance, international relations, economics, and social welfare.
Oddly enough, but not for those who understand how the dialectic process is employed in order to synthesize opposing positions into a new or "third way", the "right wing," American Enterprise Institute (AEI) is allied with the "left wing," Brookings Institution. This "joint venture" is called "The American Enterprise Institute-Brookings Joint Center for Regulatory Studies." "This joint venture between the American Enterprise Institute and the Brookings Institution is dedicated to studying federal regulatory policy."
There also exists the AEI-Brookings Election Reform Project.
The Brookings Institute
Since John Macarthur's college is co-hosting a joint forum with AEI which is allied with the Brookings Institute, let's take a brief glance at Brookings.
"The Brookings Institution is a nonprofit public policy organization based in Washington, D.C...Brookings conducts research and education in the social sciences, primarily in economics, metropolitan policy, governance, foreign policy, and global economy and development."
In 1952, Robert Calkins succeeded Moulton as president of the Brookings Institution. He secured grants from the Rockefeller Foundation and the Ford Foundation that put the Institution on a strong financial basis
Policy Influence: Brookings traces its history back to 1916 and has contributed to the creation of the United Nations..." "Along with the American Enterprise Institute and The Heritage Foundation, Brookings is generally considered one of the three most influential policy institutes in the U.S."
In 1977, Time Magazine described it as the "nation's pre-eminent liberal think tank."
The Brookings Institution and other foundations originated the monetary programs implemented by the Federal Reserve System to destroy the American farmer, a replay of the Soviet tragedy in Russia, with one proviso that the farmer will be allowed to survive if he becomes a slave worker of the giant trusts.
Brookings Institution Dedicates its work to what it calls a "national agenda." Wrote President Hoover's program, President Roosevelt's "New Deal", the Kennedy Administration's "New Frontiers" program (deviation from it may have cost John F. Kennedy his life), and President Johnson's "Great Society." Brookings has been telling the United States Government how to conduct its affairs for the past 70 years and is still doing so.
The RAND Corporation
Since Dr. Arthur Brooks, the President of AEI, is closely affiliated with the RAND Corporation, and since a board member of Jack Cox's Communications Institute is an Executive Vice President of the RAND Corporation, let's read an excerpt about RAND from "Tavistock: The Best Kept Secret in America."
"Without a doubt, RAND is THE think tank most beholden to Tavistock Institute and certainly the RIIA's [The Royal Institute for International Affairs transmits orders to the CFR] most prestigious vehicle for control of United States policies at every level. Specific RAND policies that became operative include our ICBM program, prime analyses for U.S. foreign policy making, instigator of space programs, U.S. nuclear policies, corporate analyses, hundreds of projects for the military, the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) in relation to the use of mind altering drugs like peyote, LSD (the covert MK-ULTRA operation which lasted for 20 years)."
[Editor, Tim Aho's note: The founder of the Rand Corporation, Herman Kahn, also founded the Hudson Institute in 1961. In Educating for the New World Order, B.K. Eakman tells of a training manual for "change agents" developed for the U.S. government by Rand Corporation: ". . . a how-to manual with a 1971 U.S. Office of Education contract number on it entitled 'Training for Change Agents'; seven volumes of 'change agent studies' commissioned by the U.S. Office of Education to the Rand Corporation in 1973-74; scores of other papers submitted by behaviorist researchers who had obtained grants from the U.S. Office of Education for the purpose of exploring ways to 'freeze' and 'unfreeze' values, 'to implement change,' and to turn potentially hostile groups and committees into acquiescent, rubber-stamp bodies by means of such strategies as the 'Delphi Technique.'" (p. 118)]
Some of RAND's clients include:
American Telephone and Telegraph Company (AT&T)
Chase Manhattan Bank
International Business Machines (IBM)
National Science Foundation
U.S. Air Force
U.S. Department of Health
U.S. Department of Energy
There are literally THOUSANDS of highly important companies, government institutions and organizations that make use of RANDS's services. To list them all would be impossible. Among RAND's specialities is a study group that predicts the timing and the direction of a thermonuclear war, plus working out the many scenarios based upon its findings. RAND was once accused of being commissioned by the USSR to work out terms of surrender of the United States Government, an accusation that went all the way to the United States Senate, where it was taken up by Senator Symington and subsequently fell victim to scorn poured out by the establishment press. BRAINWASHING remains the primary function of RAND."
Commentary Regarding The Masters College-American Enterprise Institute Forum
In an article published on John Macarthur's The Master's College website [This webpage has been deleted--to view this article click here] from the Master's News Service entitled, "Meeting America’s Economic Challenges: Christianity, Values and Public Policy" and under the subtitle, "The Master’s College: Forging a New Approach": "Dr. Mark Tatlock, The Master’s College Provost and Senior Vice President, saw the forum as important step for the college..."
"The Master’s College in Santa Clarita, California teamed up to present the academic forum with a nationally renowned think tank, The American Enterprise Institute (AEI) based in Washington, D.C."
According to Jack Cox, "He believes the forum represents an important step in the growth of The Master’s College as a voice of biblical reason on the events shaping the nation and the world."
"This first-ever joint forum is part of a new Master’s College initiative on biblical values and the economy."
"Forum attendees included members of the state legislature, judges, representatives from the County of Los Angeles as well as church and business leaders. They concluded the forum by asking questions on such issues such as...reformation of the U.S. court system [to Talmudic Law?]" [Peter Drucker's communitarian system, i.e. New World Order, demands the merger of the 3 sectors of society: government, business, and social (the churches). We can see this merger on display during this forum at Macarthur's "Christian" college. (see What is the Church Growth Movement?)]
"Cox said the college is already planning more efforts to bring biblical truth to bear on the issues of our time, in part through the development of the Master’s Institute on Public Issues. The school is looking at the next series of initiatives, which the college hopes to announce in the coming months that will serve both our students and society."
Note: 11/20/13--The Master's College has now removed every trace of this new "Master’s Institute on Public Issues" from its website and it now only looks like there was a single forum, not a long-term partnership formed with AEI. This website and one other are the only places on the internet that mention "The Master’s Institute on Public Issues" as a permanent entity within The Master's College.
"Keynote speakers Dr. John MacArthur, President of The Master’s College and Brooks, President and CEO of AEI addressed the role of Christianity and a Christian worldview in shaping the future of public policy in the U.S."
"MacArthur, who is best known for his worldwide Grace to You radio-teaching ministry, said, 'You don’t find socialism anywhere in Scripture…God has granted us the freedom to become everything we can become. The world is packed with riches but they must be mined out. This has always been the enterprise of man.'" Is John Macarthur correct? Has God granted Christians the freedom to "become everything we can become" and to "mine out the world's riches?" To "be all you can be" is New Age "possibility thinking" from the Human Potential Movement promoted by people like Robert Schuller. And contrary to John Macarthur's claims, God demands that Christians "deny themselves and pick up their crosses daily."
MacArthur said,"...the Bible supports free enterprise..." Another name for the free enterprise economy is laissez faire economics.
[Note: "The Mont Pelerin Society was founded in 1947 in Mont Pelerin, Switzerland by Friedrich von Hayek to oppose socialism and advocate for laissez-faire capitalism and the free market, unencumbered by government regulation. Laissez faire (Fr.) means “let them do as they will”. Classical liberalism, the philosophy upon which von Hayek based the Mont Pelerin Society, does not mean ‘liberal’ in the current sense of the word, but its exact opposite; economic ‘liberalism’ refers to public sector (government) permissiveness toward the private sector (business). "
John Macarthur's church, along with thousands of churches in the US, is being conformed to Peter Drucker's organizational model. (Drucker was a student of the Kabbalah). "Regular guests of the Druckers included the economists Schumpeter, Hayek and Mises, with whom Drucker's father had professional relations..."
“What Dr. MacArthur and Dr. Brooks articulated is a fourth approach which rests totally on Scripture. God wants us involved in society as servants [are Christians called to serve society?]. We should be involved, but based on biblical principles and not political ones." "The Master’s College, home to more than 1,200 undergraduate and graduate students across more than 50 majors, is poised to play an important role"
According to the comments made during TMC-AEI Forum, one can conclude that John Macarthur's The Master's College through the development of the Master’s Institute on Public Issues is taking "an important step" and "forging a new approach" by "co-hosting forums" with AEI in order to discuss the "role of Christians" in "shaping the future of public policy in the US." It seems Macarthur is now training his Master's College students to become change agent/facilitators in order to affect social change.

Note: Recently I spoke with Pastor Darrell Beddoe, a member of the board of directors of The Master's College. I called to ask him why TMC, a supposedly Christian College, would team up with an org like AEI. Pastor Beddoe defended the AEI as "biblical" and after I told him their leadership was affiliated with NWO orgs such as the Bilderbergers, Federal Reserve, CFR, Trilateral Commission, London School of Economics, etc., he replied, "I've heard these theories for years and I don't want a discussion with you" as he hung up the phone.
