One of the most prominent Christian YouTube channels right now is Redeemed Zoomer who stands at a whopping 125K subs on the platform. His most popular content is animated explainers on Christianity. However, he is also working on an ambitious plan to save apostate denominations. Redeemed Zoomer believes that protestants can reconquer these denominations by outlasting the heretics. Thus, the more beautiful church buildings in more prominent real estate will be restored to Bible teaching. On Conversations That Matter, Redeemed Zoomer made a compelling case for his Reconquista strategy, and he is active in this effort in the Presbyterian Church USA. Ultimately, Redeemed Zoomer wants to restore the PCUSA to adherence to the Westminster Confession of Faith. However, Redeemed Zoomer has some internalized liberalism that undermines his ability to achieve this outcome in any meaningful way.

It became apparent when he posted an affirmation of the Big Bang. It’s worth noting that the Big Bang is not compatible with a day-age interpretation of Genesis 1 nor Young Earth Creationism as the plants preceded the stars.
Anyone saying science is fake is being an embarrassment to Christianity and making Christians look stupid https://t.co/ZtKBBmcAXc— Redeemed Zoomer (@redeemed_zoomer) July 23, 2023
Nonetheless Redeemed Zoomer derided Christians for opposing the Big Bang as making Christians look stupid. He further goes on to compare Young Earth Creation to gender studies.
All of this culminated into an attack on orthodox Christianity.
The irony is tangible as Redeemed Zoomer is denouncing modernism as a cancer to Protestantism despite the fact that he is a modernist himself. His views on theistic evolution are the direct result of modernists infiltration in the church, not a natural reading of the text. Theistic evolution is a syncretism with Darwinian Modernism and Christianity, only it cannot truly serve either master. Modernism’s impact on the church was a direct attack against the supernatural claims of the Bible, the key examples including: the bodily Resurrection, inerrancy of Scripture, the Virgin Birth, and 6 Day Creation.
If Young Earth Creation is true, Redeemed Zoomer would call God a deceiver for making the earth look older. This would have made every previous generation before Darwinism willfully deceived by God for they had no means of knowing how old the earth looked. The Young Earth Creation answer is a mature earth just as Adam and Eve were made mature humans, so too did God create an adult world. Jesus would go on to make a mature wine as his first public miracle at the wedding in Cana thus further showing God’s ability to create at maturity.
The former secular leftist has not discarded his secularism, as plainly demonstrated by his tongue and cheek endorsement of Darwin. Additionally his affirmation of the Confession of 1967, a liberal PCUSA confession that decries world overpopulation. Despite this the only faith statement he touts that addresses Creation is the Westminster Confession of Faith which states:
It pleased God the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, for the manifestation of the glory of His eternal power, wisdom, and goodness, in the beginning, to create or make of nothing the world, and all things therein, whether visible or invisible, in the space of six days, and all very good.
Westminster clearly affirms a six day creation in direct contrast to Darwinian evolution.
I want to apologize to everyone. Many of my recent Tweets were intended to provoke/pick an argument, which does not build up the body of Christ. I stand by my convictions, but if you think they’re wrong, feel free to message me. I will listen better next time.— Redeemed Zoomer (@redeemed_zoomer) July 25, 2023
Internalized liberalism is a major problem in the church today, whether its feminism, evolution, or views on Scripture. Redeemed Zoomer has internalized liberalism and furthermore called Christians who deny Darwin stupid. It’s reminiscent of liberals who leave the left after they are no longer in the preferred victim class and want conservatives to be like them because they figured it out. The Reconquista of apostate churches will not be fruitful if they are ultimately still disdaining fundamentalism and promoting Darwinian evolution.
