Elizabeth Warren - Religion

Elizabeth Warren ReligionWhat is the religion of Elizabeth Warren?

Elizabeth Warren speaks often about her religion, saying that she grew up in a Methodist church, and makes it a point to add, especially when talking about her religion to Christian audiences, that she even taught Sunday school:

"I grew up in a Methodist church and I was a Sunday school teacher when we lived back in Texas." - Elizabeth Warren, The Washington Post, August 21, 2012

Since winning her U.S. Senate seat in 2012, however, she says that she has been attending Pleasant Hill Missionary Baptist, an African-American church in Dorchester, MA pastored by Miniard Culpepper, whom she says prays for her before the debates:

"I will let you in on a little secret: If you think I do all right in the debates, it’s because Rev. Culpepper prays over me before I go out." - Elizabeth Warren, North Charleston, South Carolina, February 26, 2020 

Who is Miniard Culpepper, whom Elizabeth Warren now calls her "Pastor"?

Culpepper is a former lawyer with deep ties to the black vote within the Democratic Party. He was the Chief of Staff to the Democratic Congresswoman Barbara-Rose Collins, the first black woman from Michigan to be elected to Congress. Culpepper was also a senior campaign official in Edward Kennedy (1980) and Bill Clinton (1992)'s presidential campaigns, and serves on the Democratic National Committee Credentials Committee.

Just after winning her U.S. Senate seat, why did Elizabeth Warren switch to an African-American Baptist church led by a former presidential campaign official?

Did she suddenly find Baptist theology more Biblical than her Methodist theology? If so, why does she still call herself a Methodist? Or was it to start building an outreach into the black voter community as she laid the foundation for an eventual presidential run?

But here is the more relevant question for Christians: Is the religion of Elizabeth Warren Christianity of the Bible; is she a born-again Christian?

To answer this question, we should focus on what Elizabeth Warren believes and does, not on who prays over her, for if receiving prayer made a person Christian, President Trump would be a Christian.
But didn't Elizabeth Warren volunteer to teach the Bible at Sunday school?

In the video clip below, Elizabeth Warren speaks at a church to an audience that includes men and concedes that the pastor of her old church had insisted that she basically babysit the children so that "nobody gets hurt," and that she only reluctantly agreed to it.

Who is the God of Elizabeth Warren's religion?

From 05:26 to 05:45 in the same video, Elizabeth Warren said:

"There is God in every one of us, whether we are rich or poor, black or white, tall or short, young or old, gay or straight, male or female, there is God is every one of us." - Elizabeth Warren, Metropolitan AME Church, Washington D.C., May 22, 2018

Is that true?

No, what Elizabeth Warren voiced is the religion of New Age mysticism parading as Christianity. The Bible says that God made every person in His image - "So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them" (Genesis 1:27) - but that His Holy Spirit lives only in born-again Christians who repent of their sins and the "price" for whose sins has been paid by Jesus on the cross (see Justice of God). The Holy Spirit does not live in unrepentant sinners and certainly not in those who live in homosexual rebellion against God:

"Do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own? For you were bought at a price..." (1 Corinthians 6:19-20)
